Surrendered faith 

Mohanji blessing

The following two testimonials are from a Mohanji devotee who wishes to remain anonymous at present. Both stories show us yet again how grace flows when we have love and faith and we surrender to our dearest Guru. 

Prayer miracle

In the first story, the author says, “Recently, my close relative was diagnosed with a heart problem. He has been suffering from blood pressure for many years and was on medication. However, during a recent check-up, the EKG scan was abnormal and he was asked to visit a cardiologist. I was shocked and I prayed to Mohanji and Sai Baba to help him come out of this situation. It was a constant prayer and I even visited Sai temples, offering my prayers and service.

 The day of the visit to the cardiologist arrived and I was very positive as I knew Mohanji always takes care when we totally surrender. I wanted to see the cardiologist myself, so I accompanied him to the doctor’s office. After another scan and a thorough check-up, the cardiologist said that there was nothing to worry and it was a minor issue that could be fixed with diet and exercise. I was mind blown and thanked Mohanji and Sai Baba for everything. This was an eye-opener to me that whenever we totally surrender to Mohanji, he will take care of the situation, even beyond our hopes and prayers.”

“Life has no guarantees, insurance, and assurances. Life is as it happens, in the most unexpected and unpredictable way. All you can maintain within is your Goodness factor, love, kindness, compassion and gratitude. If these are not maintained every moment, only regrets and disappointments will remain within.” Mohanji

 

 Antidote to fatigue

In the second story, the author says, “The following experience has left me speechless. I was having chronic fatigue yesterday. It was so bad that I could hardly get up from my bed. My body was stiff and I couldn’t even walk to the kitchen and had to drag myself there, both mentally and physically. I wasn’t sick, but it was more of tiredness due to routine work and no proper rest. I decided to go for a massage. I called up many centers and checked for appointments. I also called up a few friends to check for the best massage centers around. I usually never go for any massages, but in this desperate situation, I was willing to go.

M quote

Suddenly, a thought arose in my mind. I have always seen and believed Mohanji’s energy can solve any problem. There is no doubt about it. We just have to have faith that it will work! I started to chant the Mohanji Gayatri intensely in my mind as I had no energy to chant aloud. I sat on a sofa, closed my eyes and chanted for about 10-15 minutes.

In the beginning, I could feel the energy flow through me slowly. It was a very light feeling and then it flowed all around my body, my legs, my hands and my head. I had my eyes closed and continued chanting, and I began to feel fresh and I could chant faster. At the end of 15 minutes, I was completely normal, in fact, more than normal. I could run around, clean my house, cook lunch and dinner, do my work, visit the library and drive about 30 miles, all with no effort and without any massage. I was taken aback by what happened, but what I realised was that Mohanji has taken over and when we believe in him, he is there for us in whichever way we want him to help us.”

 “Storms of emotions are part of life; everyone’s life. Faith is the pillar. Hold on to it and weather all the storms of life. That is the best way. Perhaps the only way.” Mohanji

Meeting my Guru

Mohanji and Bojana 2

by Bojana Fabel

 It was in 2015, that I first met Mohanji, in Macedonia. This is how it all happened.

I had seen a Facebook advertisement, which said, “Satsang with Mohanji” and that it would be held in Skopje. I said to myself – “Oh, this is a great opportunity to finally be present at a real-life satsang!” I had watched satsangs of other Masters, Gurus and Acharyas, but only on YouTube.

I knew that Ziate, my high school friend was already connected to Mohanji. So, I immediately enquired about the same from him. He encouraged me and asked me to definitely attend the satsang.

I then contacted Zoran (Hanummatananda) to secure my place, and soon enough the day came when for the first time, I saw Mohanji. He was seated on his white chair, on a higher platform, dressed in white, talking and answering questions to a room full of people.

Mohanji and Bojana

I still remember our very first eye-contact. He looked straight into my eyes, with a childish, yet fierce look. When I left the room after the satsang, I was enveloped with a feeling of purity, lightness and happiness, just like I would feel in my childhood days, so pure and blissful. That night, I had slept like a baby!

On the second day of the satsang, I was very happy to go back and meet Mohanji again. Not to forget, I was amazed at how calm He was, and more so, to see Him seated with His spine erect. I wanted to be like Him. (I am not joking).

mind

But to the contrary, while the satsang was on, I felt like I wanted to escape from this room, leave and run, as fast as I could, as something was happening to me! I was having a FULL BLOWN anxiety attack. Here, I must mention that I had gone through anxiety and panic attacks, the whole of the previous year, and you cannot imagine the terror I was going through in the mind and body sitting in front of a Guru, with an expectation that everything will be perfect. Instead, I was having an attack AGAIN! It was really hard.

recognise yourself

But all of a sudden, an unknown inner power woke up in me, which said – “NO YOU ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE, YOU ARE STAYING HERE”. I suddenly felt strong and so I remained seated. I had won over an anxiety attack for the very first time after two years of suffering! This was the last anxiety I ever experienced, since then.

I believe that the last attack was meant to cleanse my system, in front of my Guru, by my Guru. It’s difficult to believe, complicated to understand unless some clarity appears and one sees the whole picture. It’s a secret that has stayed with the Gods and Mohanji, that He never shared with me.

But, all I know is, I am free from these attacks.

 

 The year of bliss

Ever since I met Mohanji, for the first time in 2015 (the year of transformation in His presence), I have been in a constant state of bliss, without any particular reason.

That year, I would wake up happy every day and spread smiles to the world. Every morning, I would share my experiences with Mohanji and many spiritual conversations with my father, during those beautiful sunny mornings in our lovely home garden. I call the year 2015, “The year of Bliss”.

The conditions in which I lived in Macedonia were far from perfect. I lived in an isolated village, where I had to travel for hours every day. This was after having lived in places, such as Geneva, in Switzerland; London, in the UK; and Singapore; where life was easier and far more convenient. Absence of conveniences of a well-developed city did not bother or affect me in any way. All I knew was – I was in Mohanji’s consciousness and He was taking care of my well-being at various levels.

It will always remain a mystery, the way Mohanji worked on me to miraculously bring me out of those two long years of suffering from deep anxiety and panic attacks, by just being in His presence for a day or two! I will never be able to explain this to anyone, apart from a few of my closest people, who had seen the change in me. Later, they too started following Mohanji and even met Him physically.

Guru is a principle which can operate through any medium, any being or any situation. Guru needn’t even be a walking, talking being. It can even be an understanding which happens in your mind. It can be the tree, or the leaves, or the wind. Certain revelations happen when we see certain things”. – Mohanji

As the days went by, I kept soaking in Mohanji’s consciousness, unlearning and letting go of the mind itself and transforming, for which I shall always remain at His lotus feet with deep gratitude.

flow with life

I must admit, that sometimes, I am gripped by this thought – “I am not any special being. Then, what is it that I have done in this life or past lives to deserve His divine love and protection?” I truly don’t know where would I be and how life would’ve been, without His grace and unconditional love.

I must also mention how His unconditional love was filling my own unfulfilled self-love needs, probably far more beyond what the eyes can see.

I look at Mohanji as God’s miracle and I hope that I am conscious enough to appreciate His presence in my life. I know that whatever I do will never be enough to honour the grace bestowed upon me, but I will keep striving to be my best forever.

I love you Mohanji!

The truth of His presence without presence

one with god

On this auspicious day of Guru Poornima, Mahesh shares with us a beautiful experience which yet again confirmed Mohanji’s presence in the Datta Tapovan ashram in Canada, although He was physically thousands of miles away.

 

The truth of His presence without presence

By Mahesh Bhalerao, Canada

The Datta Tapovan ashram was glowing. Mohanji was coming!  We were filled with so much joy. We did have our share of nervousness, but that nervousness was good, trying to keep everything perfect and in order for Mohanji’s arrival.

Tapovan Canada

Before Mohanji came, so many divine beings were making their presence felt too. One such unforgettable incident was when we felt Kamadhenu’s presence, though at that point we mistook it for cow dung smell!

Well, finally Mohanji came. We felt as if the brightness and warmth of the sun were appearing after a long, cold and dark, winter night. Yes, Mohanji filled whole the ashram with uncontainable and unlimited joy. Divine love flourished in every heart. 15 magical days filled with divinity. The sun rose, the sun set. But we remained awake in Mohanji’s Consciousness, in His love, 24/7.

Mahesh

Then the dreadful day came. It was time for Mohanji to go back. Other devotees in other parts of the world were waiting, His mission continues, the Avadhoota’s journey continues.

But how can my heart understand?  Greedy? Sadly, Yes. The heart didn’t want to bear the separation. The Master of my heart, Mohanji knew everything. Nothing is hidden from Him. He hears the cry coming out of each heart-beat.

He told me,

“Bhalerao, when I leave from here, don’t think that I am gone. Only my body will be gone. I will be here in the ashram, always.”

He left. I kept holding on to my faith, Mohanji is here, sitting on this chair, walking in this room, sleeping on this bed. I felt Mohanji continuing to be here with us.

Mohanji in Canada

Every morning and evening I kept doing the aarati, cleaning His room, making His bed, exactly how I used to do when He was here physically. That day, I continued the evening ritual.

 

 

In the evening when I went to the laundry room to do some laundry, suddenly I could smell the strong fragrance of Mohanji’s perfume. It has been more than a week since Mohanji had left; none of His clothes was in the laundry. In a room which normally smells of washing powder or bleach, getting the strong perfume smell of Mohanji was a clear indication that Mohanji was here, right next to me.

Then later, after finishing Sai Baba’s aarati, I went upstairs to Mohanji’s room, lit the lamp, made His bed and did pranaam at the chair where He used to sit while staying at the ashram, exactly how I used to do earlier.

canada pic

Just when I touched my head on the floor, Mohanji appeared! Yes, Mohanji appeared. I could clearly see Him, wearing His blue tank top and orange dhoti, sitting on the chair and smiling at me.

I burst out crying like a child. I cried and cried. I was crying not because I was missing Him. I was crying because He was proving to silly me that He was still here, very much here, even though physically He was thousands of miles away.

One thing is for sure, whatever Mohanji says, He always keeps His promises. He told me that He will be here in the ashram, and He proved this to me not just once but many times. And not just to me, even to others. You have already read Sanjay bhai’s story of how he saw Mohanji’s foot impression on the feet cushion.

positivity

His leelas are incomprehensible, unimaginable but magical. His love is truly unconditional and His compassion is beyond this world. How can I express my gratitude to you Mohanji, for your love? I can only bow my head down with complete surrender and remain at your feet always and forever.

Mohanji and my Mother

On the auspicious day of Guru Poornima, Jyoti Bahl offers her gratitude for Mohanji by narrating this heart touching story of how Mohanji had fulfilled her mother’s each and every wish before she took her last breath.

Mohanji and my Mother

By Jyoti Bahl, India

A Guru is comparable to the Sun; he spreads the light of liberation. Anyone who comes into his presence can benefit from it. A Guru is the face of God. Your real Guru is always God Himself. He is the power who guides your spiritual efforts. He is always with you as your true self and your inner witness.  To have Mohanji as our Sathguru is definitely because of good karma from previous lives. He does so much for all of us and we selfish humans forget everything. My life is full of Baba Sai’s and Mohanji’s experiences. It’s all because of Baba Sai that I have Mohanji as my Guru. Since Mohanji entered my life, I don’t feel lonely as I feel Him every moment. It’s not only a feeling, He actually proves His presence to me whenever I feel helpless, or when I’m in a bad situation. In my previous blogs, I have already mentioned how Mohanji saved the lives of my father, son, and even me! How can I define the glory of my Gurudev, who is like the vast ocean?

mohanji photo

This year, i.e. 2019, Mohanji gave me many indications personally and through dreams about the problem which was coming up in my life. In March 2019, I was able to meet Mohanji. That meeting was truly blissful as I got the chance to listen to Bhaja Govindam by Sri Jagatguru Adi Shankaracharya, in Mohanji’s powerful voice. Bhaja Govindam contains the essence of Vedanta, and implores man to think, why am I here in this life? Why am I gathering wealth and family, but have no peace? What is the truth? What is the purpose of life? The person who is awakened gets set on a path back to the God Principle. While listening to this bhajan in Mohanji’s voice, I was in tears. I didn’t want to come out of that blissful moment. The translation of every verse given by Mohanji was going into each cell of mine.

bhaja_govindam

I later realised the reason why I was singing these verses. Actually, Mohanji told me about detachment through Bhaja Govindam. At the end of March, my mother was detected with fourth stage cancer, which was no less than a nightmare for all of us. Before this, I used to have dreams about Mohanji very often, in which He used to call Mother near Him to bless her.  These dreams started in Jan 2019. For the last few months, Mother had wanted to meet Mohanji, but it hadn’t been possible due to some reason or the other.

mohanji liberation

I used to tell my Mother about my astral meeting with Him. I met Mohanji at the end of March and in the same month, got a chance to visit Shirdi as well. After I came back from Shirdi, I got to know about my Mother’s condition. And then I felt the power of Sathguru Mohanji, as He gave me so much strength to deal with a problem which was next to impossible for an ordinary person like me. With His motivation, I was prepared to give my Mother quality time as all the doctors told us that her fourth stage cancer was not curable.

Mohanji asked me to contact a particular doctor and also gave me Lord Dattatreya‘s healing mantra for my mother. From the very first day Mohanji sent Dr Harpreet Wasir into our lives, he guided us at every step related to my Mother’s health. Many doctors were suggesting chemo. But I didn’t want my Mother to go through it as she had always been a very lively person. One day in my prayers, I surrendered to Baba Sai and Mohanji completely and within a few minutes, I got a call from Dr Wasir saying that Mother need not go for chemo and he also added that let the doctors say anything. I was in such peace after listening to him. Just as I was praying to Mohanji for the same thing, Baba gave a message to one of my friends that my Mother’s life expectancy was very short, and we just have to give maximum love to the soul.

blessing

My Mother’s first amazing experience was when she went for a PET scan. She was a little scared during the test so she closed her eyes and called to Mohanji. Within seconds, Mohanji was standing in front of her along with Baba, and in the same blessing position which I used to see often in my dreams. After her PET scan, my Mother told me about her experience and asked me if Mohanji wears kurta and dhoti. She gave me the description of His footwear also. I was amazed to hear that as she had never met Mohanji personally, yet gave me His full description. When Mohanji physically came to give her His darshan, she told Him that He was wearing the same costume as when He gave her darshan astrally. Mohanji told her that He was going to wear a T-shirt with jeans, but just to make her realize that He actually came to bless her, He wore that.  He told her that she has a heart to heart connection with Him. As her call for Him was so strong, He had to come to her to fulfil her main desire. When she told Him about Baba Sai and Mohanji coming together during her PET scan, Mohanji mentioned that a son can’t be separated from his father. All masters are one and it was actually proved to me when so many divine souls, Baba Sai, Mohanji and Mohanji’s family came to visit Mother.

Mohanji actually took very good care of my Mother and she didn’t even get to know that she had fourth stage cancer. It was a continuous prayer to Baba Sai and Mohanji and due to that, she was full of life till her last breath. To have a living Guru in our lives is the biggest asset and without letting us know even a bit, He does so much for us. And I started feeling Him more in my Mother as she had become complete love. I was seeing Divine Mother in her and more of Mohanji in her. In such a state, she was blessing and giving love to everyone, and Mohanji’s family was witness to it, as they often used to come to meet her. When my Mother started getting blood in her stools, it became a cause of worry, as she was feeling very weak. The doctor told us that she had a life expectancy of 6 to 12 weeks. But the most surprising thing was that she didn’t have any kind of pain. The people who used to visit her were surprised as she was always smiling, full of love and life without any pains.

When I saw her in this state, suddenly Mohanji’s voice started echoing in my ears.

“I’m doing what I can.”

One day I was shocked when I received a personal message from Neelu that Mohanji had taken on my Mother’s pain. It was shared in the global group by Preeti Di. But during that time, I was not checking my WhatsApp messages due to my busy schedule. As soon as I read about Mohanji’s condition, I was in tears as He was having problems in His lungs the same as my Mother. I couldn’t control myself and called up Preeti Di to know about Mohanji’s condition.  The first thing she told me was about the blood in the stools, and I was speechless. My Mother had blood in her stools three times, and the exact same thing had happened with Mohanji too. I couldn’t stop crying. I hadn’t said anything to Mohanji and just by connecting to His consciousness, He got to know and took everything on Himself.

There is a big misconception that whosoever gets a chance to be with Mohanji physically is very fortunate. Indeed, they are very fortunate. But I really want to tell those souls that Mohanji actually works more in consciousness. From the beginning, He’s trying to tell each one of us to get connected to His consciousness, as we internalize through that process. As a true Guru, He always guides us to go within and become independent in every aspect.

experience-and-mind

Mohanj always stresses on doing our dharma properly. And I’m really grateful to Him that He gave me enough strength to serve my Mother until 20th May. Mohanji was supposed to come that morning to meet my Mother. And on the same day at 9 am, my Father fell in the market and my husband immediately took him to the doctor to get an X-ray done.

Mother with Mohanji
Mother with Mohanji

As Mohanji knows everything, He arrived at my place at 11:30 to meet my Mother. She did His aarati and sang bhajans for Him. And they had such a beautiful conversation related to Lord Krishna and Radha. Mohanji told her that death is not ugly, it’s beautiful. He made her laugh and consoled her as she was really worried about my Father, who was with the doctor for his X-ray. He gave us so much strength.  There were so many things going on, but with His presence, we were feeling extremely light and were in a thoughtless state. My Mother was in an ultimate state of bliss as her last desire of meeting Mohanji was fulfilled.

My Father was also fortunate to meet Mohanji. Mohanji blessed him and told him in advance that it was a thigh bone fracture. My Father was admitted on the same day for surgery. The same evening, my Mother’s health started deteriorating and she was admitted in ICU for breathlessness on 22nd. My Father also had surgery on the same day. I told Mohanji about my Mother’s condition, which He already knew. He said He’s aware of my Mother’s condition. This is why He came and met her as a priority and told me not to worry as He’s with her. It was a very tough situation for us. Mohanji told me that He’s with both of them and He’s reducing the intensity as much as possible. If not for Mohanji’s grace, I would have collapsed in such a situation where I was feeling exhausted in every way.

Dr Wasir
Mother with Dr Wasir

 

In ICU, my Mother was pouring unconditional love and blessings on everyone around her. My friends were meeting her on a daily basis as they wanted to take blessings from her. They felt Mohanji’s immense energies in her. Her wish to meet Dr Wasir also got fulfilled when he came to meet her in ICU. During her last breath, she got a chance to listen to Mohanji Gayatri on the phone in Preeti Di’s blissful voice. That was the last thing she heard. Mohanji didn’t leave even a single desire of her’s unfulfilled. When Mother left her body, I was at peace as I knew that my Baba Sai and Mohanji were standing beside her. Mohanji told me that I only concentrate on the rituals and to not forget to feed the sick, children, old women, animals and birds in her name. Rest He’s taking care and she’s fine. So I need not worry.

Immediately after this message, I started thinking about feeding the sick, old women and children. To my surprise, I found a number of a lady in my phone list who runs an NGO and she guided me to go to cancer patients at AIIMS. When I went there, I found children, women and old people altogether. How masters help us can’t be defined in words. I didn’t know anything and Mohanji guided me at every step for a smooth transition for my mother, as that was my biggest concern, and which Mohanji was already doing. Whatever I’m writing is not even an inch of praise for my Gurudev. What countless merits of previous births have given us this wonderful opportunity to be in the shadow of such an Avadhoota.

mohanji-soul-is-imperishable

There was another amazing experience which I want to mention here. Before my Mother’s body arrived at the cremation ground, my son took the ambulance to a Gurdwara which is near to our house. As he reached there, he saw Sri Guru Nanak standing at the gate and he saw a big light coming from him and merging into my Mother’s body! My Mother used to follow the Sikh religion completely and was a great follower of Sri Guru Nanak. In the end, just by connecting to Mohanji, she reached the ultimate.

On the 13th day after her death, which is the time for the soul’s transition, my Sister organized Mohanji’s satsang at my place. When the playing list was on, Mohanji’s Nirvana Shatakam also started playing automatically side by side. As before, through this obvious episode, I first strongly felt Mohanji’s presence. We were surprised as Nirvana Shatakam is one of the rare verses written by Sri Adi Sankara Bhagavatpada, identifying himself as Lord Shiva and clearly explaining his theory of non-dualism. I was at peace to know that my Mother was with Mohanji forever through this amazing experience. By chanting His name in her last days, my Mother’s soul merged into Guru’s consciousness forever. The Guru does become the linking factor, a channel for putting the wandering lost soul back into contact with its source.

Mohanji, you were the light for me in the dark. You were always an inspiration and an aspiration. You made me come out of my ignorance. I learned to deal with the issue, all due to you. Please keep me at Your lotus feet always. I am nothing but the dust of your feet, my Gurudev. Guru is like Shiva, without the Trisul in his hand. Guru is like Vishnu without the Chakra in His hand. Guru is like Brahma without the four heads. So now you can conclude that Guru is the Supreme Power on the Earth.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 9 – “Flow with Life”

flow forward

In this series of Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 9, We bring to you a recent incident in Sreeja’s life where she felt the grace and protection of Mohanji during very trying times.

 

Please read other Mohanji Satcharita stories from this Chapter!

 

Flow with life…….

By Sreeja Ranjit

 

“I SEE YOU WHEN YOU SEE ME…
I SEE YOU EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T SEE ME…
I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU…
WATCHING YOU… PROTECTING YOU….” – Mohanji

Mohanji always keeps His word. He is always with us in consciousness, protecting us from unknown dangers that lurk in the dark. I have no words to express my gratitude for His protection 24/7.

Our family, comprising of my husband, myself and our son have recently moved to Ethiopia as my husband got a job here. It has only been two months since we have joined my husband. It’s a new place and we are only getting to know the place slowly. Mohanji always says to accept changes wholeheartedly without resistance and to just flow where destiny takes us. So, even though things were difficult here compared to India, we were adapting to the whole new atmosphere well.

letting go

Then suddenly, this June 22nd night, attackers shot and killed the governor and two other top government officials in Ethiopia. On the same night in Addis Ababa, the country’s army chief and his close friend, a retired army general were assassinated inside his residence by his bodyguard. 6 top government officials were also assassinated on the same night, throwing the country into a lot of anger, fear and helplessness. They disabled all phone connections the same night for security reasons.

The 23rd morning we woke up with no data connectivity either through Wi-Fi or mobile, and no calls if you left the city limits. No incoming calls from outside the country either. My husband was supposed to travel at 5 am by a flight on June 24th to two of the regions most affected by the incident and where riots would soon start off. I shudder to think what would have happened if this incident had happened after he left. We would be totally cut off from him. On top of that, the US embassy had issued alerts about reported gunfire in the capital Addis Ababa, and violence around Amhara’s main city Bahir Dar. Everybody was asked to stay at home. But as usual, beloved Mohanji took care that we remained safe and sound.

Now, things don’t end there. My husband’s Superior called up and said it’s going to be the month end, these kinds of things will happen and he should be on the next flight on June 25th. We were shocked. We could not believe our ears in fact. My husband argued that it’s not safe and the nation was on a blackout and alerts were on local news channels not to travel etc. Also, he can’t make calls from there due to no network connectivity and he can’t leave his family alone. But all his pleadings fell on deaf ears. I got really scared as then we have to stay alone here in the independent villa we have rented without any connection with the world outside and was really scared about his going to a place which was not considered safe. Any time riots can break out. I cried out to Mohanji as usual and kept praying ceaselessly to help us in this situation. Only He could help us.

My husband called me on the way to book the tickets as the online booking was not happening as the internet had been blocked. We were blocked for 10 days with no connectivity. Airport officials had asked him to come directly and book the flight. Flights were running as scheduled. I started praying to Mohanji and in between our conversations had complete faith that He will take care.

And yes, He did. All flights had been cancelled from the next day! Until the day my husband went to enquire and book his flight, all flights had flown out at correct timings. When he gave me a call to inform me about this miracle, I knew in my heart my beloved Mohanji had taken care as usual. We also came to know that the Superior had been asked to leave the company for a different set of reasons.

Grace

Another issue while trying to settle down in the new country was also taken care of by Mohanji. My son had given the admission test for his 7th-grade school enrollment. There is only one good school here which follows the Cambridge syllabus and admission is tough. We got to know they were not taking any new admissions for the 7th grade as it was already full. I was sad but then suddenly remembered Mohanji’s words.

Whatever happens, just accept and go with the flow. – Mohanji

I mentally prayed to Mohanji to let whatever is best for him to happen. I felt really better afterwards and we decided to wait a few more days and to send him back to India. But within 2 days, we got a call from the school saying that he was admitted and he was the only one whom they had selected out of the 10 students who wrote the test. I cannot express in words the immense gratitude to my beloved Guru Mohanji who is omnipresent and silently there with us all the time.

Mohanji always takes care. It is for us to see His grace and protection and own our experiences.

Thank you Mohanji for showering your grace, love and protection on us always.

Koti koti pranaams at your lotus feet.
Jai jai Mohanji…sharanam sharanam Mohanji.

be cool

Being With Mohanji – The Transformation

By Ruby Nair, USA

Guru Comes to You At The Right Time

“Teachers happen when the student is ready. And the teacher is always in relation with the student. When a student happens, a teacher happens. Teacher is a state just like student is a state. The teacher or the student are never permanent in their roles. A teacher can be a father, a husband, a lover, a pedestrian, a shopper, a barber, a cook or any other role a human being may play in his or her lifetime. The right knowledge will come to you at the right time, through a person, a book or a life experience. This is the truth of existence.”

Below, I share, from the heart, how my life changed from a mundane existence to one of joy, peace, gratitude and selfless actions through the appearance of a Guru at a time of need in answer to a prayer.
What have I gained by being with Mohanji is a vast subject that can’t be put down into mere words. I contemplated on this matter for a couple of days and as I sat with my husband talking about certain things, I ended up discussing with him all that I have gained by being with Mohanji. It was so simple yet complicated.

Mohanji_simple
Simple Yet Complicated!

My life before Mohanji was very uncertain on many levels. From my childhood, I had been one of the weird kids who always felt different and shy inside. On some levels, I can say that I had lived a turbulent childhood which continued into most of my early adult life. First, it was distant family problems. Then as I grew older, I realized that I never fit in with a lot of groups because I was never really interested in what they talked about. I was a party goer for most of my late teens and thought life was just about partying and spending money.
After getting married and visiting Kerala for the first time in 2004, I had such a profound experience at the Guruvayurappan Krishna temple, which brought tears and intense love to my heart, that shook me. That’s when I realized that there was something tangible in these temples. So I became obsessed with visiting temples and praying – just thanking God for everything.
However, marriage also brought a sense of responsibility towards fixing my family matters. My husband and I took it upon ourselves to visit different temples, perform countless pujas, prayers in my name or their names to uplift them and myself from all the troubles and ignorance. There was this compulsion in me that kept me going for years and I can recall most of our married life was spent on fixing other people – my family, etc. I felt burdened at times and cried out numerous times to God to please end this suffering of mine as there was no end to my turbulent life. Things did improve in my life but I never felt contented and always felt like there was something more to do.
Since I had filled my life with trying to help others while ignoring my own pain, I never knew how to deal with things when they got difficult as there was no anchor in my life to tell me it will be okay in the end. My husband was always there no matter what, but I was looking for something higher to connect to. I felt abused, disrespected and unloved on many occasions by many people in my life. I was a machine living for others and trying to make them happy while I was unhappy on many levels.
The above describes my life after my marriage basically from 2003 to 2012 – in pain, in depression at times, feeling lonely, betrayed, etc. After 2012, my life changed drastically again after visiting a Shiva Temple in Kauai, Hawaii, where I truly believed there were Gods, angels and higher beings alive among us, helping and guiding us. It brought a lot of change in my life which cultivated patience and faith. I gave up certain dietary things as well as alcohol, which I took on special occasions and learned could be a hindrance to one’s spiritual path. I became aware that one’s purification and penance was very important in finding God. To better myself, I started fasting, serving family by cooking food for them, ignoring their cold remarks, and learning how to restrain myself.
During this time, I also read the book “Autobiography of Yogi” by Paramahansa Yogananda. This book helped me realize the importance of a Guru and how having love for Him transcends any physical or conditional love that I was used to. This drove me to seek and question if there was a Guru for me as well in this life. I installed Mahavatar Babaji’s picture in my temple even though it felt kind of strange because I had grown up with the idea that we only install and pray to idols of deities and not to a human beings. Even though I knew Babaji was beyond human definitions, it was just something that was hard for me to do.
From 2012 to 2015, I did meditations on my own where I would just force myself to sit and contemplate on Babaji or just nothing. I prayed to God to send me a Guru. After hearing from somewhere that when one pours water on a Shiva lingam and asks with a pure heart, God surely brings that into our life. Without being aware, Mohanji came into my life slowly, but my ignorance was too deep to even recognize Him. In 2015 I found Mohanji’s blog through the grace of Babaji and I was able to meet Him physically in 2016. Meeting Him was also very turbulent for me due to my own negative self. I had to shed a lot to see His divinity. This was the first gift He gave me – the ability to connect to Him despite the darkness surrounding me, while dissolving my ignorance so that I could see Him in a different light and purity.

Light & Purity with Mohanji

During one of my trips with Mohanji, He casually mentioned that having my second daughter accelerated my path to meeting Him, but I was destined to meet Him anyway, probably later in time. Many are His subtle ways that I can’t even begin to describe them.
The big question is what has been so different after meeting Him. Well, all my compulsions to fix things, others, or situations have gone. I no longer feel that I am in any control to fix anyone let alone help them, unless they themselves are seeking guidance. If I do happen to help someone, I have realized that it is not me but the energy of God working through me to help that person, so the ownership or doership has gone. I have also been initiated to Mai-Tri healing, so I can serve others selflessly and bring Mohanji’s healing to others.
I feel protected for the first time in my life. Not that I didn’t feel protected before, but this is where I know if I am in trouble or something is bothering me, He will be there no matter the time or space. It’s very comforting to know someone is always with me, guiding me no matter what.
I have also become stronger in myself and have more faith in myself and my abilities. I no longer wish to get gratification from others or listen to others. I know I am self-sufficient and I am perfect the way I am, despite being laughed at numerous times throughout my life. It is knowing that all of us are different, unique and loved by the Divine just as we are. Even though lack of acceptance is still there on minute levels, it is now a work in progress.
Another great thing I have gained from being with Mohanji is His global family. I just love meeting different people from all over the world and connecting with them instantly. It is like they are my real family at times and it brings me so much joy just to share love and stories with them. It’s a connection on a different level that I never experienced outside of His family.

Connection at a different Level – Kailash Trip

Mohanji has also brought forth more awareness to the suffering of animals. Due to this I have been vegan for a year and have never been so happy to realize that I had the strength to give up on desires that are so hard to give up in one’s life. Now, it’s a lifestyle of Ahimsa which was just a thought before meeting Him. This decision has helped me to avoid feeling the guilt of consuming something that was snatched from another being. Because if the roles were reversed, I would not want the same thing inflicted on my loved ones.
So far, the most important thing I feel I have gained is that Mohanji anchors me in the present. I no longer look elsewhere; He has given me something strong and tangible to hold on to. This feeling was what I was looking for all my life until I met Him. I realized that if this anchor had been available to me earlier, I would have been less turbulent within myself and more stable. He has given me stability that I thought I would never achieve in this life. I have cried to God when I couldn’t handle things and have asked Him to end my life, but now I don’t have such thoughts. I feel happy, loved, accepted and grateful to have this human birth where I have been given this much awareness. Simply put, Mohanji helped me become a better me, someone I love.

Love and Acceptance From My Guru – Machu Picchu

This was my humble attempt to pen down my most intimate thoughts. I feel privileged to even be on this path and to be able to express my gratitude to Mohanji. Without Him, I probably wouldn’t even have the strength to face, accept and write all these things. Thank you Father for everything and coming into my life.
With deep gratitude and love,

Mohanji, the Brother in Truth: “Sabse Unchi Prem Sagai”

Author: Sujata Joshi, UK

 

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 1 Mohanji quote - fire of awareness

I was at Subhasree’s, after a troublesome period of experiencing energetic disturbances in my sleep. It did happen during the day as well. Eventually I chose to receive Mai Tri method as a last resort to help settle things. Subhasree explained to me that it was important to be open to receive, whichever way Mohanji chooses to work through you.

I prayed to Mohanji, “Let me know whatever you want me to know.”

You see, I was experiencing separation from my guru, who guides me from beyond. This caused me to feel abandoned and unwanted. I prayed to Him before I came to London, “Please, I need confirmation. I need to know You are with me and that I am loved.”

My intuitive guidance was blurred at this point and I had doubts about my own guru, who recently broke His own image and caused many people to be upset. I know gurus do that! They have harder tests than us! They have to break every bond in order to move to higher realms of spiritual heights!

I knew my guru was a high being, but I had no physical contact with Him, only strong intuitive guidance, which connected me to His consciousness like an umbilical cord connects a baby in the womb to the mother.

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 2 fire of awareness

My guru is very strongly linked to Mohanji.

Mohanji’s presence during the healing was palpable. He actually was there! Very gentle. Very soothing! As healing energies began to flow, my tears started to roll!

My guru was there! He was always there! He never left! His funny, witty, loving, flirtatious, even naughty, presence was unmistakable!

I had no doubt, He was with me, I was still loved and protected, despite my various outbursts and doubts about Him, He loved me beyond judgements and conditions my mind had set about His image! I remembered Mohanji’s messages. “A master is never bound by our mental frames. Trust Him! Because the mental frames will keep on breaking!” I bowed to both my gurus and asked for blessings.

Rights and wrongs are man-made! They change.

God isn’t bound by man-made laws of the society.

My Guru showed me the image of Lord Krishna with the chariot wheel, charging at Bhishma, despite His vows of non-involvement in the battle. He broke His own image to protect His disciple, Arjuna!

 

Such is Guru’s love for us. In truth, we are all Arjuna. We just doubt ourselves and forget we are loved!

I am so blessed to receive this communion through Mai Tri method.

I am writing this account for those of us who might have felt disconnected or abandoned by the guru at times. It is not easy to cope with that! Though the real guru is our own soul, we need the external guru to connect us within.

Mohanji has always been there to rescue me. Even before I knew about Him!

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 5 fire of awareness - Manasarovar lake - devotion

I received clarity later, much later, as my healing actually continued for days after. I was still in bliss, sleeping soundly, eating well and generally getting deeper and deeper in solitude of the loving embrace of my spiritual mother, my guru. Days later I recognised.

In my mind’s eye, was the question, why do I call Him (Mohanji) my brother?

Mohanji had rescued me from being an exotic dancer, hundreds of incarnations back. He had called me his sister since then!

Beloved brother, in deep love and gratitude.
