The power of Consciousness Kriya

consciousness-kriya

By Dejan Cosic, Bosnia and Herzegovina

In ancient times there lived a great and curious king who challenged all wise men of his kingdom to explain the idea of karma, karmic law and karmic processes. Many sages passed through his palace and gave various replies, but those did not satisfy the king, who continued seeking a more profound answer. Finally, a liberated master appeared in front of him. He said, “Nobody can reveal to you the secret of karma, which you can only experience by yourself,” and gave him an initiation into Kriya.

And that’s exactly what Consciousness Kriya is. A deep but lit path towards our own soul and the understanding of the law of our very existence through a direct and clear personal insight, under the support and protection of Mohanji, a master who has found the way towards his self and the absolute Consciousness. 

Kriya Yoga - Through Breath to Light

I had been waiting for about 13 years for the opportunity to get initiated into Kriya. In the meantime, I practised various breathing techniques and meditations, but they all proved futile in terms of what I was yearning for, and that was a long-lasting peace, and above all, of course, control over my own mind, which at that time was like a herd of wild horses. Without a doubt, those techniques were providing me with a lot of energy and certain insights, but the understanding of myself and the world was not the way I wanted it to be. Something crucial was always missing.

The only thing that I was sure of was that my mind was completely scattered and so indecisive that I couldn’t even decide which technique to practice at times. That’s why I really wanted one single technique that could replace all others. That was Consciousness Kriya. I understand now that all those techniques that I used were like riding a bicycle compared to riding a spaceship that Kriya provides.

I started practising Kriya in 2016, but not regularly/daily, as I was taking breaks. Even though I knew that the science of Kriya demands great discipline, that is an everyday practice; I didn’t dare to set a clear intention and make a decision not to skip a single day. However, in February last year, I made up my mind, and since then, it’s been over 400 days now; I have been practising Kriya on a daily basis.

Now I notice a big difference. It’s hard to put into words the heat in my palms and spine that I feel almost every day; the enjoyment of the breath that is much longer now so that while practising Kriya, I inhale approximately once a minute, while sometimes I am completely merged with the breath. My energy is more stable; I am more peaceful. I sleep less, and I need a lot less time to accept some difficult moments as they are and to get out of the emotional instability.

Simply put, I have more control over myself. I feel and understand better my body, mind and intellect, as well as many obstacles that my mind poses. I have an impression that I understand better and can distinguish between the thoughts that are really mine and those that belong to ego or are simply not mine. In short, the ‘antivirus program’ called Consciousness is active non-stop and gives me the opportunity to connect to myself on a deeper level and witness all that is happening within me and around me.    

In the middle of last month, I had a significant experience related to the time we live in, as well as the fear and insecurities that we are surrounded by today. So, one afternoon I realized that I’d lost the sense of smell. Without any fear, I thought the cause of it could be coronavirus, even though I was feeling well.

The next morning, I woke up extremely tired and with very little energy. I think I was ready to spend an entire day in bed. However, I didn’t give up, and that day I did Kriya 3-4 times and, in such a way, renewed my energy completely. The next day I was as good as new. Several days later, it turned out that I tested positive for Covid, but I went through it completely intact and, with an important experience, ‘Praise the Lord.’ 

In the end, I’ll repeat the words that Mahavatar Babaji said to his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya, “Even a little practice of this science will save you from great fear and colossal suffering.”

Many Masters or this one?

By Preethi Gopalarathnam, India

This is an important message! I heard the podcast Real vs Unreal by Mohanji and I felt I had to share my experiences and learnings. If you have not heard this, please listen to it. The link is attached at the end of the blog.

I have known Mohanji for the last seven years and have been associated with Mohanji Foundation in various capacities. During this time I have met some very interesting people. Some people have come here, bloomed and are shining bright, polishing themselves and adding value to the world to the best of their capacity.

Some have come and done some great work and have gotten distracted because of personal, mental, and financial issues and have slowly dimmed out. Some have joined the organisation because their friend or family have joined and are connected. These people come on someone else’s belief. They believe everything and everyone and lack their personal anchor to the truth. So many times, I have seen them become disillusioned and leave either unhappy or not satisfied.

There are some, however, who join this organisation and then join multiple such organisations too. They believe in many Masters, and they usually say, “All Masters are one”, so I will learn from everywhere. It’s like taking multiple tuitions for one subject to crack the exam! You attend class after class but no time to assimilate and learn because we are busy with classes.

I have been fortunate to meet and observe all these flavours of people, and these are my observations only. I felt a strong urge to pen them down, and please read through it and take it only if it makes sense to you.

Yes, it is true that all Masters operate from one Consciousness, but the first question to ask ourselves is, are we in that oneness state to realise that? Unless we are there, it is someone else’s truth we believe in. It’s not our experience. If we go back to all the books and life history of great Masters like Yogananda and Vivekananda, we see that they respect all Masters, but they are firmly rooted in one Master and one Guru. Why?

Don’t they know that all Masters are the same? My understanding through my experience is as follows.

At some time in life, we ask for spiritual progress, we pray for guidance, and this prayer is a deep, earnest call from our soul. I can take my example. I connected to Mahavatar Babaji first. I prayed to Babaji, asking him for a true Guru whom I could relate and connect to. Then I was led to Mohanji. Now, how do you know that the Master in front of you is the right one?

Simple, your knowing comes from how sincerely you prayed for guidance and help! This is how I found my Guru. I did my own thorough analysis before I took Mohanji for my Guru, though. It was not instant realisation though there was an instant connection.

I saw for myself the state of purity that he was operating from. I observed his interactions and knew he was genuine. He practised what he preached. He was humble. He respected all Masters, but at the same time, he was a storehouse of power. I started seeing miracles in everyone else’s life and mine too. It was only then I took Mohanji as my Guru. It was logical, and it happened naturally. After taking him as my Guru, I had this confusion. What to do with Babaji now that I found Mohanji?

I see many people who are connected to Babaji, Sai Baba, Ramana Maharishi and many other great and powerful Masters. They find Mohanji, and then I watch them divided. Do they follow Mohanji or the Master who got them to Mohanji, who is powerful and not in their physical form. If the Master is in the body, you can directly go and ask him, so no confusion! I have been there in that space and suffered this confusion, so I felt I should share my experience. Mostly they pray to both and follow both, and that is what I mean by they are divided.

Initially, after I met and connected with Mohanji, I used to get these messages of people channelling Babaji etc., and I have initially gone there too, thinking the source is the same. Everyone is nice and loving, and you feel great energetically. But then we can’t follow everyone and every teaching, right? If we get two contradictory practices, what to do?

I would like to share my experience here. On one occasion at a friend’s place, I had the experience where Lahari Mahasaya and Sai Baba both appeared in the picture of Mohanji that I was holding. I was telling her that I feel sad about why Babaji had to send me to another Master and why he couldn’t come directly and speak to me as he does to all the other people we read in books. It was at this moment that I looked down at the picture I was holding of Mohanji.

It was unmistakable; both these Masters appeared in Mohanji’s eyeballs, each on both eyes. It was unmistakable! I was trembling and shaking, in tears because from inside came a realisation, showing me that all Masters exist, embody and speak through this one Master now. While my question to her was naive, it had purity, so the Guru answered it for me.

We need to remember something; we asked sincerely for guidance from a Master who has left their body or God. If we were in the state where they could communicate with subtlety and directly with us, they would have done it, right?

The fact that they sent you to another living Master proves the authenticity of the Master and your need for this particular Master and their sign of approval for you to move forward with him or her.

It doesn’t mean we are leaving our God or older Master; it means they will start speaking through this living Master, so we understand. Then, in this case, I personally feel the search has to end there. It is this Master in front of you who they will speak through if they want to from now on. Isn’t that why they sent you here in the first place! If you are still in doubt (the mind I tell you!), surrender this to your original Master and say, I did this as your guidance now you take care. Mohanji has said several times the story of a man who took a buffalo to be his Master, and he attained the highest. The sincerity and faith of you, the seeker, is all that matters here.

This experience at a friend’s house was a surreal experience for me, and I know it was true because it transformed me completely. My search for Gurus and people connected and channelling Masters stopped there. It happened naturally and automatically.

I would also like to share another observation. My deepest transformations started happening with Mohanji after this. It has been a rapid journey after that. It took me a while to understand that the connection became pure, and all distractions and loopholes for doubts were eliminated so that the Master could deliver. I could be receptive only after that incident. I still have a long way to go, but that’s surrendered at his feet now. It’s his job; mine is to hang in there however difficult the ride turns out to be!

Kalpataru Series – Ageless

By Subhasree Thottungal, UK

23rd February 2020. Mohanji is 55. The truth is Mohanji is AGELESS. 

Mohanji’s 55th Birthday, Sri Lanka

Almost a year and a few months ago, one morning, this thought came to me…”Mohanji is ageless.” Peculiarly, the next morning around 3 am, I woke up (in the Brahma muhurta – the most auspicious period to connect to the self and the Supreme Consciousness) and happened to see a spiritual blog by someone deeply respected by Mohanji. Well, I am not a serious reader as such and don’t look out for blogs to read, but this one had appeared in my notifications. Following the experiences that happened post reading, I realise this was a divine plan for me to come across the blog at that auspicious time.

Katargama Lord Murugan

Well, the blog mentioned about a place named ‘Kataragama’ in Sri Lanka. Reading through the descriptions, I understood that this is the place where Lord Murugan (the son of Shiva, also known as Kartikeya or Subramanya) had reincarnated. This is also the place where one of the most famous amongst all spiritual seekers, ‘Mahavatar Babaji’ was taken into the discipleship by his Master/Guru Bhoganathar. At the age of 16, Guru Bhoganathar taught him the art of ‘Kaya Kalpa’ – which enabled him to remain a youth forever!

Reading this brought a thought in me that “Mohanji is ageless”. The first chord was struck.

The next point that struck yet another cord in my awareness was when I read that after Babaji returned to India, Sage Agastya initiated him to the secrets of the breath, which was followed by the birth of Kriya Yoga. This reminded me of Devi Amma’s (from Bangalore) confirmation of Mohanji being the spiritual son of Sage Agastya and that Mohanji initiates genuine seekers of liberation into Kriya Yoga. A similarity that my naive mind couldn’t ignore as mere coincidence!
Joining these dots gave me the awareness of the oneness of Babaji and Mohanji. Well, why ponder here and there. Let me ask the Master himself, I thought. But Mohanji, as always, never claims himself as an incarnation of any other Master.

He always says,

“I am born as Mohanji, I will die as Mohanji. I am only Mohanji.”

Mohanji in Sri Lanka

Well, after this naive expectation to hear a confirmation from Mohanji himself, I understood that realising the truth of the oneness of Mohanji and Babaji, is a truth that was meant for my awareness only and will stay as my truth. No justification, no evidence, no approvals, nothing is required. The awareness of this truth is beyond any revelations.

The next morning, I received a WhatsApp message from my friend Preethi Gopalratnam from Mumbai. This was a conversation between her and Mohanji on Kataragama. She had expressed her wish to visit Kataragama with Mohanji! Preethi was an ardent devotee of Mahavatar Babaji and always felt that Babaji had sent Mohanji to her to answer her seeking to experience Babaji in a physical form! This message from Preethi was a silent confirmation from Guru Mandala about what I realised the previous day with Katargama being a critical point of reference. We both spoke later, exchanged our realisations and surrendered our wish to visit Kataragama one day, with Mohanji. That was November 2018.

I had written a blog on this experience which you may find in this link here – “The truth beyond revelations”

With Preethi in Sri Lanka

One year and three months later, on 23rd February 2020, on Mohanji’s birthday, Preethi and I were with Mohanji at Kataragama! This trip to Kataragama wasn’t that easy. I wasn’t sure if I could make this trip. Surely it was for the completion of my realisation, and also a confirmation to Preethi’s questions that we were both taken, literally taken together to the place that played such a vital role in our realisation. And we were taken by the Master himself, appearing in the very ordinary physical form with whom we can connect so easily, but firmly and deeply.

With Preethi in front of Katargama Temple

Walking hand in hand with Preethi to the temple, I was elated with the feeling of eternal joy that our Master gives us through his grace and compassion. Standing inside the temple, watching Lord Murugan and Mohanji together, the vision of oneness was crystal clear!


Certainly, my question (that came as a silly and naive question earlier) was answered by the divine himself! There was nothing more that needed to be answered!
Mohanji stays as Mohanji for me, Mohanji will remain as Mohanji forever, but this lesson of oneness was probably one of the biggest lessons that I learnt.

Doing my Kriya practice at the very sacred place where Babaji used to meditate while he was with his Guru Bhoganathar, in the presence of Mohanji around us, gave complete clarity! The connection to the supreme Master, to Parabrahma, the Supreme Consciousness is the only eternal truth. It was indeed not just a coincidence that this completion happened on Mohanji’s birthday in Kataragama.


Regardless of the number of candles on the birthday cake, Mohanji will remain ageless for me, in my connection to Mohanji’s Consciousness.

Thank you Mohanji, for giving me such a beautiful gift on your birthday – physically, a very joyous occasion to celebrate with the global M family, and spiritually a fulfilling accomplishment.

Love and compassion of my eternal Guru

The role of faith on our spiritual journey

M 2

By Eric Elbers, Canada

Back 46 years ago, at the age 30, when visiting friends over a weekend, I stumbled upon a few books by Edgar Cayce, known as the Sleeping Prophet. Being raised in an orthodox Dutch Protestant family, these books were my first exposure to the serious possibility of reincarnation and the associated law of karma. Edgar Cayce himself, a devout Christian and Sunday school teacher, was amazed when, in a deep trance, he started reading past lives and the karmic origin of current problems that the people who visited him for advice were facing. I still remember that a light came on, an insight happened: “Yes, of course, that makes a lot of sense and explains so many things in the world.”

That realization started a frenzy of reading of spiritual literature that appeared familiar to me and also showed me insights and knowledge of Eastern traditions that seemed familiar, even though they were not a part of my upbringing. A resurfacing of things I had known before. Then I had this prophetic dream, which I remember to this date. I was shown a beautiful, large mansion, and a clear voice told me, “This house has been built with patience and perseverance.”

That was it. That was the guidance I received with which I was sent off on my spiritual journey. Surprisingly, those two words are very similar to the shraddha and saburi [faith and patience] precepts, which are the core of the teachings of Shirdi Sai Baba, who I would learn about forty years later, but first things first. 

During my early spiritual explorations, I learned about a movement called ‘The Science of Soul Travel’. It promised to teach out of body travel and travel with spiritual masters in the inner worlds. Now, that sounded like a great adventure and quite appealed to me, so I went head over heels into a path that promised to make me a ‘Spiritual Traveler’. I followed this path for thirty years. I became a ‘Higher Initiate’ and ‘Spiritual Aide’ and fulfilled a variety of leadership positions, but, disappointingly, the subtlety of Soul Travel kept escaping me, despite attending numerous seminars and diligent execution of the spiritual exercises. Still, I kept my faith until, in the early 2000s, a bombshell hit. One of the Higher Initiates carried out intense internet research and discovered that many of the teachings were plagiarized from different sources. The leader of the spiritual movement himself had fabricated a fake lineage of spiritual masters in whose footsteps he supposedly was walking. Needless to say that then a crisis of faith occurred, and it did not take long for me to leave the movement after thirty years. It was quite interesting though, that even though the masters were fabrications, they did seem to work for many people as spiritual guides and as sources of spiritual inspiration. There is an essential principle of faith at work here, which ties in with the pivotal role faith plays on our spiritual journey.

Being disappointed with fake masters, I reread and became fascinated by Yogananda’s ‘Autobiography of a Yogi,’ a spiritual classic about Kriya Yoga, the spiritual roots of which appeared genuine and very deep, which led me to start following the Kriya Yoga path. But one has to watch out here as well: the Kriya Yoga tradition has branched out in different paths with different Gurus of varying caliber, teaching different variations, and it took me a while to find a branch that resonated with me. But soon after, the Master of that path decided to stop traveling and remain in India, which made personal contact more difficult and thereby made my journey more isolated and sadhana centered. Is it necessary to have a personal connection ‘in the flesh’ with one’s Guru? Probably not, but one may consider it a huge blessing if the opportunity presents itself, and such personal meetings help to kindle the flame of devotion.

With all this study and pursuit, I developed a problem: too much head knowledge. I realized that while practicing Kriya Yoga, I was drawn to the Raja Yoga and Gyana Yoga paths but lacked in service [Karma Yoga] and devotion [Bhakti Yoga], so I started looking for a spiritual connection that could fill those gaps. A beautiful female Indian saint, known as the ‘hugging saint’ yearly visited North America, and I felt drawn to the love and compassion she taught and radiated. I followed the guidance of this inspiring saint for several years. Still, I realized that it would be hard to connect personally with her since, after thirty years of being on the road sharing love, compassion, and hugs, this saint had built up a vast following of hundreds of thousands to millions of devotees. Many thousands of people attended meetings at a time, and it would be tough to obtain access to her, let alone build a personal relationship. I kept reading and studying, and then something significant happened: Sai came into my life.

Shirdi Sai Baba

Shirdi Sai Baba [1838-1918] intrigued me from the outset. Here was a real incarnation of divinity. A presence so profound, a knowledge so deep, love and compassion so strong, abounding miracles and transformation, universal, non-denominational spirituality and a life dedicated to the service of the Almighty, what more could one be looking for? All boxes checked, except Sai was no longer in the flesh, having taken Mahasamadhi over one hundred years ago. However, more reading about the life and miracles of Shirdi Sai Baba followed. Soon, I ended up reading about Sathya Sai Baba, according to his revelation, a more recent reincarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba, but also and more recently departed. While reading the Special Issue of Awakening Times about Sathya Sai Baba [1926-2011], I came across an article written by Mohanji. He explained his first contact and mystical relationship with Sathya Sai Baba, which had occurred after a tough and challenging period in his personal life. Reading the blogs of Mohanji about his spiritual connection with Sai Babas, Mahavatar Babaji, Nadananda, and disciples of Nityananda made it clear to me that Mohanji was recognized and supported by illustrious Saints of the highest stature as a very advanced Spiritual Master with an important mission. Plus, he was in the body and actively traveling and teaching. This was good enough for me. Here was my chance to connect with a Satguru in the early stage of his spiritual mission, which would allow me to be of service and have an opportunity for personal contact. Plus, Mohanji also was a Kriya Master in the Mahavatar Babaji Tradition. Another box checked. I quickly contacted Mohanji to request whether he would approve and bless me to start a weekly meditation class of his meditations in my home. The answer I received was that he had already received my request through consciousness and had approved it with his blessings. I was on my way!

It took a year and a half to meet Mohanji in person. While standing in line to greet him, I saw him glance briefly at me with a sign of recognition, and when a little later I was formally introduced to him, he said, “Eric and I have a very deep relationship.”

That was surprising and not surprising to me. Surprising because this ‘deep connection’ was something I had not been aware of [I thought I had searched Mohanji out] and not surprising because being allowed a close personal relationship with a Satguru is a privilege built up over lifetimes. How can it then be a surprise to hear that a deep connection exists?

Mohanji and Eric

For me, the propelling force on the journey from Edgar Cayce to Mohanji over forty years, following different teachers with ups and downs, was faith, and the dream-vision that “this house has been built with patience and perseverance”. However, while fellow travelers over the years were able to share beautiful inner experiences, the path I traveled was one of insight, patience, and perseverance; no fancy soul travel with elevated Masters, no inner plane cinematography. I grew up in a Christian environment built on faith and have had to accept that faith, not fancy experiences, is crucial for my spiritual growth. Peter, the disciple of Jesus, was able to walk on water when he saw Jesus after his resurrection. Yet, as soon as he looked down and realized he was walking on waves, the realization that this could not be happening caused him to start sinking, and the helping hand of his Master was needed to pull him up. Faith allowed him to walk on water, but as soon as it left him, he started sinking. The same applies to us all. 

The spiritual journey often starts with a tire-kicking phase, checking out different paths and Masters, checking them out, and going for a test drive here and there. Yet, once this phase is complete and we settle down and start following a particular Master, we better stop looking for the higher, better, more significant, or more glamorous and famous Master and begin building a relationship with our chosen Master based on faith. During the trying out phase due to the absence of faith, it is impossible to develop a strong relationship with any Master. This is illustrated in Stage I by the dashed lines and the various Master figures surrounding the seeker, experienced either simultaneously or sequentially. However, once a connection is made with a particular Master, and the seeker starts placing his/her faith in the Master, a subtle, energetic connection starts forming in the subtle realms. This connection begins tentatively but becomes stronger over time as the seeker, and now disciple starts to place more and more trust in his Guru and allows the Guru to flow guidance, protection, and blessings through this energy conduit. Stages II and III show how this energy conduit becomes bigger, and the energetic distance between the disciple and Master shortens as the connection between the Master and disciple strengthens.

Then, during Stage IV, an important change starts to happen as the disciple’s energies and the Master’s begin to overlap and merge. In this stage, the disciple starts to act increasingly as a channel for the Master to work through. Finally, in Stage V, a complete merger of energies occurs as the disciple becomes Self-realized as the ego boundaries dissolve.

The fundamental principle is that the entire progress from Stage II to Stage V is dependent on the faith the disciple places in the Master. It is faith that keeps the channel open. It is faith that draws the connection closer, and it is increasing faith that allows it to expand. Without faith, no progress is possible. 

And then there is the role of doubt. Doubts are the tests given to measure the strength and depth of the disciples’ faith. They will occur from time to time to test the strength of the bond. If the disciple allows doubts to enter into the relationship, there is little the Master can do. Doubts are the worms that chew away at the energetic connection. Once established, they will gnaw holes through which the connective energy starts leaking away, and the energetic connection weakens. Once the first doubt has done its work, a second one finds it easier to enter, and over time, holes open up in the energy channel [Stage VI]. Then the channel loses its ability to maintain an energetic connection between disciple and Master. Therefore the disciple needs to be vigilant and robust because doubts may enter innocuously. It may be a remark from a family, relative, or friend, a passage in an article, a whispered rumor or slander that gives credibility, etc. All serve to test the mettle of the devotee. Is there sufficient faith to allow for a closer connection? This testing happens all the time. Once doubts are permitted to enter and are entertained by the mind, the relationship sooner or later gets broken. The disciple loses a God-given opportunity for Self-realization in that lifetime. It may take many lifetimes to receive another chance to connect with a Satguru, and every time the tests will reoccur. Once broken by lack of faith, the connection is tested again and again until finally, one develops a connection that is strong enough to withstand all attacks and allows the devotee to complete the journey. Merger with the Satguru energies can then occur, which is the same as merging with the Absolute [Stage V].

An interesting illustration of the power of faith is that the devotees on the Soul Travel Path I initially traveled had inner experiences with spiritual Masters whose existence, as was later shown, were fabricated, having had no Earth history. Yet, a connection was formed on the inner planes through the faith of the devotees, which allowed Divine Spirit to use the Master’s matrix to function as a spiritual connection through which teachings and protection could flow. It was faith that initiated the relationship and trust that maintained it. 

In the words of Mohanji:

“Life is about faith. Faith happens, sooner or later. When ego subsides and gets nullified through consistent downfalls, faith happens. Faith leads. Faith soothes. Faith reinforces. Faith nurtures life. Faith elevates life. Faith stabilizes life. Faith liberates man. Faith increases with experiences. Faith decreases when we disown our own experiences; swapping it for other’s opinions or book knowledge. Faith increases when surrender becomes absolute. Faith decreases when ego becomes predominant. Faith is real if it is spontaneous. Faith is transitory if it is induced or inherited. If man’s herd instinct leads to a certain faith, it ends when he turns a new corner. Such is the passing faith, which has no longevity. Faith-based conviction is more real if the conviction is based on truth.”

Jai Mohanj. Thank you, dear Master, for taking me home. I place my faith in you.

My encounter with Mohanji

By Vanita Bunwaree, Mauritius

It all started in April 2020 during the confinement period due to Covid-19. I went to many Masters till 2009; although I was practising, I did not seem to evolve on the spiritual path and I was getting quite frustrated. Sometime back in December in 2019, an old friend kept talking about Shirdi Sai and the experiences he encountered, but I just listened casually.

Mohanji and Sai

In March 2020, after the lockdown was announced, I thought why not read a bit on Shirdi Sai and I google-searched him and his teachings. I came across the famous and holy book Sai Satcharitra, which I asked my friend to lend me to read. Reading through the pages, I started developing faith in Baba. I started doing Baba’s naam jaap and asked him to give me his darshan. I was also watching Youtube videos on Sai Baba devotees and came across Mohanji’s experiences with Baba.

One night during my meditation, I kept trying hard to see Baba’s face but instead saw Mohanji’s face. Again, I tried to see Baba but saw Mohanji and I felt a strong connection especially on my forehead region. Days later, again in meditation, I saw Mohanji and felt my breath going up and down the spine. Then I understood that Shirdi Sai wanted me to connect to Mohanji. From that time, I started reading everything on Mohanji, his experiences, his blogs, his meditations. I went through all Mohanji’s pages on Facebook and whatever the country, I followed the FB pages.

I felt I needed support as I was all alone and I knew no one in my country who was connected to Mohanji. I did send messages to a person in my country but there was no reply. I started to practice Power of Purity (POP) and 360 degrees meditations. While reading about the Mai-Tri method, I felt I needed to do it. The occasion appeared in May when I saw an invitation for group Mai-Tri with Preeti Duggal. I enrolled and went through the transformative process. The next day I called Acharya Preeti and again related to her my experience of coming across Mohanji and told her, “Please, when you meet Mohanji give him all my love.” In my mind, I thought that I have never met Mohanji physically, will he know I exist? I wanted to see/hear from Mohanji.

THE FORGIVENESS BOOT CAMP

Few days after the Mai-Tri session while scrolling through pages of Mohanji, I came across the invitation for ‘The Power of Forgiveness’ boot camp. I eagerly enrolled and we got the instructions for the boot camp day by day. It was such a well-designed programme with meditations that were well spaced, the reading part for each day, the selfless seva (service) to animals, and the Mai-Tri sessions done out of so much love.

The first day, I had a few queries and that is when I came across this beautiful and selfless person, Mohanji Acharya Lakshmi. I went through this boot camp with all her support and love. Some days, I felt strong emotions surfacing with lots of energy that I could not sleep and she kept guiding me. The 5-speed breathing told by Lakshmi had instant effects. Immediately, I could feel a change in the body’s vibrations. During the boot camp, my thoughts kept drifting to Mahavatar Babaji and I could see his image clearly in my mind. I even related this to Lakshmi as I thought my mind might be playing tricks but she told me if the thought is on Babaji, it means that I am connected to him. I realised that she was sent by Mohanji to guide me.

On the last day of the camp, she told me that Swamiji will do a live session of Mai-Tri on zoom. Initially, I thought I would do that the next day as the time in my country would be 9 pm and my mind was telling me to postpone. Then by afternoon, something told me to go through it. I went through the Mai-Tri process which was conducted by Swami Mohana Bhaktananda Bharati. As he guided us through the intense mantras of different deities and gurus, I felt intense energy and a lot of emotions came up. Swamiji kept telling us to release in whatever way; screaming, crying, shouting, even cursing, if we feel like releasing. I went through all these processes and at the end of the process, I felt much lighter.

The next day, I felt a lot of anger and irritation surfacing but Lakshmi reassured me that things were getting released. That day, I sent a message to Swamiji to thank him for the Mai-Tri session and I was overwhelmed when he replied to my message by saying, “All this happened due to your devotion and love and you have a special place in Mohanji’s heart and he is sending a bit of extra love to you.” It was as if through Swamiji, I got the answer to the message I sent through Preeti Duggal on sending my love to Mohanji.

The next day, after boot camp, I asked Lakshmi if Swamiji has written or said anything about his transformation with Mohanji or if there was any blog that he had written and if he was a ‘normal person’ before he became a Swamiji. After some minutes she told me, “You are lucky! Tonight, he will talk on his transformation on Mohanji page.” Listening to Swamiji gave me immense faith and conviction that for every person irrespective of his past weaknesses, we can all be transformed.

This boot camp has indeed been very special and full of love. I was guided step by step by Mohanji through Acharya Lakshmi and other Acharyas.

Power of Purity – 41 days

POP

Soon after, I sent a mail concerning a query I had in meditation to Mohanji Acharyas. At the same time, the 41 days of PoP was being launched and they asked me to join. I did join in and the energy field I experienced was very different from the PoP which I practice when I am alone. I felt an intense silence that was growing after about 7 days of practice.

During that period, something strange happened. I asked Baba when he would give me his darshan. That day, I invited a friend of mine to come home the next day at 3 pm. He casually said he had a surprise for me. At first, I thought it was a material item but later that night, I had a strong thought in my mind where I heard Baba saying that he will come to my house tomorrow. At the same time, it occurred to me that the surprise was about Baba. I told my friend, “Tell me, the surprise is Baba, right?” He was taken aback and said, “How did you know?” He also added that before I told him to come to my house, the night before, he ordered Baba’s photos and the shop told him they would be ready at the same time and day I asked him to come to my house. I was filled with joy understanding Baba’s grace and I remembered the story in the Sai Satcharitra where Baba gave his darshan through his photo to a devotee.

I can only say that I feel blessed and grateful that in a short period, I have been offered so many opportunities by the grace of Masters of the Tradition to accelerate my growth and evolution on the spiritual path.

Eternal Grace

Mohanji in BAdri

Travel with Sonia Gandhi on a magical pilgrimage, where Grace showers her with the fulfilment of her smallest desires.

By Sonia Gandhi

It was only by Mohanji’s grace that the Badrinath-Kedarnath trip happened for me in September 2018.

Flashback to March 2018: On the last day of the Machu Picchu trip, I had this weird dream early in the morning, where I saw Mohanji going away from me. I was a bit disturbed by this dream and ended up speaking to Mohanji and requesting him never to leave me.

He said to me, “I’ll never leave you.” Then after a pause, he said, “Come to Badrinath.

With my eyes wide open, I was thinking, ‘How will I manage this?’ I had just taken 15 days off work to come to Machu Picchu, and I was about to change jobs. I did not think that I would have enough leave left to travel again in September, as I was to join my new job in June.

Fast forward to August 2018: My boss approved my leave as it was the start of the financial year for us. However, I had to work from India for a few days to enable me to travel during the weekend. Since I live out of India, a trip to India was an opportunity to meet my family as well. I thought there would be nothing better than getting my whole family together on the Badrinath-Kedarnath pilgrimage. As my mom was a bit low (following my Dad’s passing away), this would be a good change for her and we could all spend time together at a holy place, in the presence of Mohanji.

It so happened that seven members of our family were part of a group of 33 to Badrinath and Kedarnath, beautifully managed by Mamuji, Preeti Velekar & all the lovely volunteers! It was a joyous journey and full of unexpected events, as you will read.

Our family got lucky and were able to attend the public Satsang that happened in Rishikesh, the very day we reached Haridwar. (The towns of Haridwar and Rishikesh are at a distance of approximately 25km from each other- Ed.) We spent time in the bus singing and chanting in bliss, although we were stuck in traffic for a while and thought we would be late.

As the bus stopped and I stepped down, the first thing I saw was Mohanji, who was stepping out of his car at the exact same time! We rushed to meet him, filled with so much joy at seeing him and taking his blessings. It’s always special meeting Mohanji although we know he is always with us, guiding us.

The next morning was scheduled for the Homa- a ritual with offerings to a consecrated fire. This was something I had always wanted to attend, ever since I first read about a Homa in Canada in 2014, and had learnt about the amount of cleansing that had happened during that event. We were fortunate enough that Mohanji decided to do the Homa himself in Rishikesh.

Mohanji told the group that he likes to start on time, as all the deities are present, once the start time has been announced, and it is not good to make them wait.

The energy was so intense from the start. Mohanji’s face shone like the sun and the heat from the rising sun made him shine even more brightly. He did not move until the Homa was finished, which took around 4 -5 hours. The intensity of the Homa was such that the presence of Masters was strongly felt.

Homa in Rishikesh

Towards the end, each of us had to offer a dry coconut to the fire, which kept burning till late night and did not easily urn into ashes. It’s unheard of that a dry coconut does not burn, with so much of ghee (clarified butter), wood etc. added to the fire as an offering. We understood that this was due to heavy karmic baggage that would not let the coconut burn!

We were also asked us to write what we would like to offer to the fire and put that paper into the burning flames, lit separately from the Homa fire, in a place a little distance from it (after the Homa was completed). Mohanji was personally standing there till everyone put their papers into the fire. Some of the papers refused to burn in the fire: yet another unheard or unseen event! The heaviness it was meant to be clearing from people was so intense, that it took ages for all the papers to burn! I have so much gratitude to our beloved Guru Mohanji, who works tirelessly and unconditionally for uplifting all beings.

We then started our journey by visiting Neem Karoli Baba’s Ashram and Shri Lahiri Mahasaya’s Ashram. Both places are very powerful with amazing energy!

While visiting Lahiri Mahasaya’s Ashram, we got a chance to go inside the cave where he did Tapas (spiritual practices that often involves a high degree of self-discipline, solitude and periods of deep meditation – Ed).

I was sitting with some other group members, in silence, in a small room, in front of the cave, waiting for the others to come out. There were a few pictures in that room, one of them was of Mahavatar Babaji. I looked at the picture and felt intense energy coming from it. I sat there silently praying to Babaji to give me a glimpse of him in a physical form. ‘I may not be eligible, but you are ever merciful. Please give me your Darshan (Divine sight)’ I thought, and cried.

I had never prayed to Mahavatar Babaji this way before, and I wasn’t sure, why I was doing it, as I am usually deeply in love with Sai Baba and believe he is my best friend, my Divine Father. I realised what the link was later while entering the Kedarnath temple.

Mohanji in Badrinath

En route to Badrinath, our group was stuck on the road due to a landslide, which is common in that region, when it rains heavily. We had to find a place to stay for the night. With Mohanji’s grace and Mamuji’s tenacity, we got two hotels to stay in, for our group.

The next day, we met the rest of the group.

I was talking to someone, sharing one of my experiences in Machu Picchu. Mohanji was talking to someone else, but he looked at me and suddenly said, “I told you to get in the bus!” I was puzzled. He said again, “I told you earlier too, to get in the bus”, and said to the person next to me, “She (me- Sonia) knows what I’m talking about, she will tell you later.

I stood there even more puzzled and started thinking about what it signified. It was only later that day that I realised what Mohanji meant. This explanation has two parts: one part that happened in Machu Picchu in March 2018, and another part in Oct 2010 in the form of a dream.

I will narrate the dream first. In Oct 2010, before I physically met Mohanji, Sai Baba had been my best friend and protector. While I was going through a tough phase in my life, I saw this vivid dream at about 3.00 am.

In the dream, someone was harassing me and I was asking this person to let me go. Suddenly my mom appeared, together with my (deceased) grandparents, who came to rescue me. I went with them and we were waiting for a bus. I was getting impatient in my dream, as it was taking a while for the bus to arrive, but they told me the bus would arrive soon. So it did. A white bus arrived, which had white chairs outside and inside, and all the interiors were white too.

As it seemed full from the outside, I complained that I might not get a seat, and my mom said, ‘You will get one, don’t worry, get into the bus’.

A few people got off and I climbed up the steps of the bus. I looked at the driver’s side of the bus and the driver was wearing white clothes too, with a white turban. As I looked at the driver, he turned his head and looked at me – it was Baba! My beloved Sai Baba!

At this point, I woke up, with so much joy in my heart and went to Baba’s picture to talk to him, and saw him smiling in his full glory that made my heart expand so much, during those tough days.

Now to March 2018, Machu Picchu:

While walking near our hotel in Machu Picchu, Mohanji, who was ahead of me with some others, suddenly turned around and asked me to go and click the picture of a bus!

This was a bus that looked like a toy bus, which was on a small bridge, in the small town of Machu Picchu. I rushed to the bus, clicked a picture quickly and returned, but he pointed again, and said, “You didn’t click it properly- go and do it again.

So I went again, knowing in my heart that I had rushed it. Later on, when I saw the picture, it had four dogs with the bus, which were missing in the first picture.

Bus
The Bus with the four dogs

Four dogs represent the four Vedas and are always seen in representations of Lord Dattatreya.

So this is what Mohanji was asking me to do: to “Get in the bus”, i.e. to completely surrender my words, thoughts and actions, to the Tradition and let them take care of my journey onward. This was such a beautiful message, in the most subtle way linking the dots from 2010 to March 2018 and finally to Badri-Kedar in Sept 2018!

I felt so sad for taking so much time to understand Mohanji’s message. I surrender to him to give me Buddhi (intelligence) to understand the message, quicker.

Yes, I believe that Mohanji knows the past, present and future, and can see things which we fail to see with our human minds and limited awareness.

Back on the road, while waiting for the roads to clear, we were enjoying Mohanji’s company. We started singing, and I took up the song that goes: Om Jai Sainath, Jai Sainath, Aadi na anth tumhara, tumhe shraddha naman hamara, Dharti par rahkar prabhu tumne tan ambar tak vistaara. Translated, this means: O beloved Sai, there is no beginning and no end to you! I bow down to you with faith. Living on Earth, you have expanded into the Sky and beyond!

The roads did not open that day and a few members left on foot to walk towards Badrinath, while the rest of us decided to stay back. My mother was with us, so all our family decided to stay back.

We had a beautiful satsang that evening, with Mohanji talking about the manifest and the un-manifested universe, and many other deeper topics. I was not feeling well but attended the satsang as it always lifts my spirits.

The next day we started our journey again, as we were told that the roads would be open that day.

We packed our bags and were on the road again, but we had to stop on the way as they were sending traffic through from another side, before letting us go up. While we were waiting, there was a beautiful waterfall next to where we had stopped. After spending some time with the group, I decided to go up by myself near the source of the waterfall where I sat down to do my Kriya practice. Within 7-8 minutes of Kriya, I felt expanded.

Suddenly, I saw myself inside Mohanji’s consciousness. I became part of him and I could see myself expanded to the extent that everywhere I looked, everything was Mohanji: not just the earth plane, but outside too – the manifest and un-manifested Universe. It is hard to explain, but there was no sense of ‘I’, as I became part of him and part of the Universe.

He made me experience the expansion I sang for him just the day before and that he had talked about in Satsang the evening before! This little mind is not capable of knowing how Masters operate, but I believe that it was through sheer Grace that I was able to experience this.

Then suddenly, someone came up to take my picture and I came back to normal consciousness, and back onto the rock that I was sitting on. I went down to the road after a while and was told that Mohanji was asking about me.

I went to see him and offered my pranaams (salutations), and he enquired, “Ah! Sonia Gandhi! Where were you?” I said ‘Father I went up near the waterfall’ to which he replied, “Yes! I know! I was there, I came to meet you, but other people came. I feel shy when there are other people, so I came back, you see! I’m very shy!

What could I say to this? Our beloved Parabramha, who is One with the whole universe, after showing me the glimpse of it, says “I’m very shy!” I burst into laughter and Mohanji gave me a big smile.

I love you to eternity Mohanji! Only gratitude at your lotus feet.

We had a blissful darshan at Badrinath. The first sight itself was mesmerising, the beautiful main entry with vibrant colours. The view is a sight to behold and enough to melt the heart!

The next day, we had a dip in the hot water spring and got ready to go for a morning Darshan at the temple. If I tell you that I had no idea that it was a Narayana temple, you might laugh at me! Yes, I thought it was a Shiva temple, going by the name. I later came to know that it actually had been, until Lord Narayana came there for tapas and made it his abode.

We went inside & witnessed the whole shringar ( dressing up) of Lord Narayana. There were around 40 people in the temple. Apart from us, there was another group. We started chanting, and the other group began to respond so that they would sing one chant, and then we would sing another. I sang to my heart’s content and loved every minute of it.

After the blissful darshan, we resumed our travels and I was back in the car. We stopped at a small dhaba (roadside eatery) after a while. While we were waiting, we saw Mohanji’s car arriving. He too decided to eat at that dhaba with us. I was seated next to him with gratitude in my heart for this wonderful opportunity! I began to feel energy swirling inside me and felt my mind begin to go blank.

While eating, Mohanji said, “You know I’m eating spicy, because I’m …. cutting Karma.” I couldn’t hear the full sentence and just nodded. He said again, “Tell Kamath what I just told you.” I repeated the part sentence to Kamath who completed the sentence, ‘Cutting your Karma’. I sat there in complete shock. Within seconds, Rajesh and Sanya took the remaining spicy food from Mohanji’s plate and ate it.

I just sat there in shock processing what I had just heard! How does our beloved Avadhoota in jeans work? No, the mind cannot understand his subtle ways of working.

Only gratitude & surrender.

We reached Kedarnath very late and stayed overnight in a beautiful resort.

While I was in the queue for Darshan & silently chanting, like a flash, appeared a very vibrant and young (around 16-17-year-old) yogi, coming out of the Kedarnath Temple, in just a dhoti. His appearance was similar to Mahavatar Babaji as in the portraits I had seen, and he had a very bright face. Just then, a lady behind me said something to me, and as I turned to the lady and then looked back in the yogi’s direction, he had disappeared! It was all an open area, but I could not see him anywhere!

Was it that my wish (that I made in Lahiri Mahasaya’s Ashram) was granted?

I do not know, but it was a most beautiful sight and I can only bow my head in gratitude.

As I took the first step inside the temple, something shifted inside so strongly, that I could not hold back my tears, and I actually cried out & sobbed loudly!

I felt I belonged to this place, and energy and a strong sense of love enveloped me. It felt like a homecoming after lifetimes. I was sobbing and the guards were looking worried, thinking I was getting altitude sickness and breathing heavily.

I could not really tell them that I was completely fine; it was strong energy, the connection and feeling of belonging to the place.

They left me alone in one corner for a while, and I ended up standing sobbing there for almost 15 minutes with so much bliss & love that my heart could not contain it! So I was standing there in the inner sanctum without being disturbed for almost 10 minutes and was able to offer my prayers and gratitude, whilst others were hurried out of the sanctum.

The next morning, Mohanji was talking to someone about the Kumbh Mela and its significance, while I was standing at some distance, listening. I felt it was a message for me and it turned out that I ended up going to Kumbh in Feb 2019, which is for another blog that I am writing!

While driving back from Kedarnath, we had to stop on the way due to the road being blocked at one point in the journey. We got out of our vehicles and were taking pictures. I saw a beautiful waterfall, and my heart expanded. I started visualising the waterfall doing abhishekam (ritual pouring of water or other offerings) to Mohanji. Lo and behold, in less than 5 minutes, I saw Mohanji walking out of his car and he stood near the waterfall and I was able to capture exactly what I had visualised a few minutes previously.

I had no words to say anything. I just felt so blessed to have such a compassionate Father, Master, Guru and friend in the form of Mohanji in my life. He knows every wish and fulfils it without a delay if it is from the core of one’s heart.

The last day of the pilgrimage arrived all too soon, and it is always hard to bid goodbye to Mohanji. When my turn came to offer my Pranaams, I had only one question in my heart, ‘When are we meeting again, Father?’ Before I could say anything, Mohanji looked at me and asked me the very same question, “So, Sonia Gandhi, when are we meeting again?” What can I say, he knows my every thought and wish!

So I asked him, ‘Please call me to Kumbh, Father’. He gave me a big smile and said, “Come.

There are many more subtle instances that touched my heart, but it’s hard to list everything.  Yes, he knows my every little wish & fulfils it.

I have only gratitude and more gratitude to our beloved Mohanji.

The Master Beckons to Kailash

By Rajesh Kamath, India

Kailash! To paraphrase Star Trek, it is the final frontier, a place where few people have ever gone before. Eight billion people on the planet and yet only a chosen few are privileged to undertake this amazing pilgrimage. And this privilege comes only through grace – the grace of one’s ancestors, the grace of one’s Master, the grace of Lord Shiva, and the grace of the Guru Mandala (the Masters of the Tradition). Nothing but grace gets one an invite from Lord Shiva.

It is this grace that opens the doors to various experiences on the pilgrimage. It is this grace that keeps one alive in the harshest of environments on this pilgrimage. It is this grace that allows one to successfully complete the pilgrimage. I have seen some pilgrims who feel that they were entitled to receive this grace – wishful thinking that they are special in some way to deserve it. To mistake grace with entitlement can only be termed as sheer ignorance and, without a shadow of doubt, ego and ingratitude of the highest order.

Shiva

According to Mohanji, a pilgirimage to Kailash is complete when one takes a dip in the holy Manasarovar lake and has a darshan (holy sight) of holy Mount Kailash. Optionally, one can perform a circumambulation around holy Mount Kailash – either via the Outer Kora (circumbulation) route or the Inner Kora route. By the grace of Mohanji, I have been very fortunate to be on the Kailash pilgrimage twice – once in 2014 on the Outer Kora route and once in 2016 on the Inner Kora route.

Like most Hindus, I had heard of the holy pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar. Thanks to an amazing mythology attached to it wherein Lord Shiva stays atop this beautiful white snowy mountain in the middle of nowhere with His family and His army. It could as well be a fairy tale because not many even dream to undertake this pilgrimage unlike the Char Dham (“four abodes”) pilgrimage – a pilgrimage to the four holy sites in India widely revered by Hindus and considered highly sacred to visit at least once in one’s lifetime.

The Kailash pilgrimage is not even visible on anyone’s radar, much less doing it. Even those that wistfully think about doing it feel that it is a pipe dream. And yet here I ended up doing a Kailash pilgrimage with a powerful Master a couple of months after vaguely thinking about doing it. If that is not grace, what is?

Mohanji_SwamiB_Kailash

Listening to the experiences of a (now ex) colleague who had done the Kailash pilgrimage twice with the Chinmaya mission, got me thinking about doing Kailash. I checked with his contact but they said that they did not have any pilgrimage planned in the near future and would get back to me if and when they do. Out of the blue, I received an SMS from the Mumbai Mohanji center that Mohanji would be in town.

And guess the topic at the satsang (divine discourse) when I entered the room – Mohanji had just asked one of the attendees, Dhritiman (aka DB), to talk about his Kailash experience from 2013. At the end, DB mentioned that the pilgrimage would happen in four weeks at the end of that same month (July 2014). Talk about synchronicity! For me, it was like a huge flashing neon sign that I should join the Kailash pilgrimage.

In spite of the last minute runup, the whole registration process was unusually smooth thanks to Sumit from the organizing team and the invisible grace of Mohanji. It was sheer grace that allowed me to participate in the pilgrimage.

Someone canceled at the last minute opening a slot for me to join the group. The Chinese usually required the group permit to be applied a month or two before the pilgrimage (which would have ruled me out). However, that year, the Chinese delayed the group permit application process to just before the start of the pilgrimage.

Finally, my mind started playing games. Do you really want to go to a pilgrimage where you don’t know anyone? Wouldn’t it be better to use the two weeks to finally do the much-awaited motorcycle trip to Leh and Ladakh (a holy grail for bikers to ride on the highest motorable road in the world)? Finally, better sense prevailed and I decided against the motorcycle trip to join the Kailash pilgrimage.

Image 3-pic 2 -mohanji-and-kailash

2014 was a special year for the Kailash pilgrimage– the year of Dev Kumbh which comes once every 12 years. Dev Kumbh is special in that each Kora counts as twelve. Each Outer Kora (a 56km circumambulation around Mount Kailash) done that year got one the benefit of doing twelve Outer Koras and equivalently the twelve whammy of transformation.

This enabled me to qualify for the Inner Kora. So, I “accidentally” ended up doing the Kailash pilgrimage during the best possible year. Amazing “accident” or infinite blessing? You decide.

On the flight to Kathmandu, I bumped into a girl from the Mumbai meditation group who was also doing the pilgrimage. She mentioned that there were around 85 people from around 20 different countries. I balked at the size and diversity of the group. I was expecting the group to be small – around 20-30 people. A vague thought surfaced to hijack the plane, turn the flight back and head back home.

When I reached the hotel, I saw a multitude of people outside the hotel enjoying the traditional Nepalese welcome. Most of them apparently knew each other. Hugs and greetings were being liberally exchanged. The one person I knew in this huge group had disappeared into this overfriendly sea of humanity. I tried my best to dematerialize myself.

mohanji-shiva

I usually feel very conscious in a group setting. Breaking the ice is an ordeal for me because I am not sure what to say. The awkward pauses after the initial greeting are the stuff nightmares are made of. Once I get to know people, I am the loudest one in the room. When people who know me meet people who don’t know me, they get surprised because either group can’t seem to correlate my quiet self and my loud self.

Since there was not much I could do now, I decided to go with the flow. Since I lacked the spiritual abilities to disappear at will or the Harry Potter invisibility cloak, I did the next best thing. I moved over to where the bags were being offloaded and started helping there. Interestingly, this happened to be one of my fun tasks throughout the pilgrimage.

I had volunteered to help out with the pilgrimage and was assigned to daily task of getting the bags ready for loading each morning and unloading and distributing the bags in the evening. Interestingly, this pilgrimage is all about releasing baggage. Much like life, people would initially let go of their baggage, feel empty without it and take it back very soon.

It turned out to be a richly diverse group with all the obvious differences of color, race, religion, culture, nationalities, etc. Yet, it was an amazing group and, by the end of pilgrimage, they all seemed like family.

The pilgrimage felt like a special homecoming where long lost loved ones met after a long hiatus. Subsequently, I have come to expect this at most retreats with Mohanji. Our wider spiritual family reuniting with us and getting every closer, re-igniting the flame formed from the sparks of numerous past life interactions.

Mohanji in smoke

Back then in 2014, I smoked heavily. The first thing I did was to find the kindred company of fellow smokers in our pilgrimage group. And I found two active (a Romanian and a UAE born Indian) and two passive German smokers who were only there for the company. We whiled the night away discussing spiritual conspiracy theories over coffee and cigarettes. One of the Germans (henceforth referred to as Z-man) was very interesting.

Z-man could tap in and figure out the past life connections of any two people. He was also sensitive to energies; and had an “eye” that could see and “ears” that could hear. There was a Serbian doctor in our group who, for some reason, I kept referring to as Boris (wasn’t his name). I would apologize and the kind doctor finally told me, “Never mind. You can call me Boris since you like that name better.”

I told Z-man about this Boris episode. He went quiet, closed his eyes and on opening them said, “Russian war. 1800s. You were soldiers. You were younger. He was older. He died before you. His name in that life was Boris.” Such interesting “factoids” would be served at a moment’s notice by the Z-man!

Back then, I was a spiritual greenhorn with energies, visions and such amazing happenings in the parallel spiritual reality. Still am! The Z-man was my guide helping my “blind” self understand the import and magnitude of the spiritual occurrences that were unfolding during the pilgrimage.

11 Mohanji - Jesus energy

He was instrumental in unravelling, to me, the significance of the pilgrimage. Post Kailash, he also helped me decipher some of my spiritual experiences. As you can see, the Divine always provides for the spiritually disabled. My sincere and heartfelt love and gratitude to the Z-man.

The day before we were scheduled to leave Kathmandu, my fellow smokers decided to go cold turkey. Inspired by them, I made one feeble attempt to quit smoking the following afternoon during our visit to the Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu. I left my packet of Indian cigarettes and the lighter on the wall near the temple and threw a conciliatory hopeful prayer in the direction of the Lord Pashupatinath (Lord Shiva) to take care of the addiction.

My resolve was steadily weakened and eventually undone by the evening as I headed out to the bar in search of cigarettes. Thus, began my parallel experimental odyssey into the murky world of Nepali and Chinese cigarettes through the pilgrimage. The ones where the brands are recognized by color and the potency by how the smoke burns on the way in.

A landslide happened in the countryside the day we were supposed to leave Kathmandu. This took place exactly between Kathmandu and the Chinese border. The landslide broke a dam and almost 500 people died that night. The tour operators informed all Kailash groups that roads leading to the Friendship bridge had been devastated effectively cancelling the pilgrimage.

No pilgrimage and the money paid would be forfeited since it was caused by “acts of God” circumstances. Mohanji told Sumit that cancelling the trip was not a solution in his Tradition and tasked him to find alternatives. Sumit acted quickly and took a decision, which was backed by Mohanji, to engage helicopters at an extra cost to pilgrims and fly over the impacted area to get to the other side.

It took a whole day of back-to-back sorties to get the entire group safely to the other side. After our last sortie, these helicopters were recalled back to assist with the emergency and were not available for general purpose usage. We literally made it through the skin of our teeth. Remember, almost all pilgrims from other groups were still stranded in Kathmandu. Isn’t this a sheer miracle?

In spite of smoking heavily all the way through the pilgrimage in high altitude environments, I hardly faced any breathlessness save some teething acclimatization issues on the first day at Nyalam. I breezed through the first day of the circumambulation of Mount Kailash and blazed all the way up to Dolmala pass on the second day. Dolmala pass was the highest point of our pilgrimage and the trek up to the pass was supposedly the hardest part of the pilgrimage.

I was so proud that I had reached Dolmala pass comfortably despite my smoking habit. I decided to celebrate with a cup of noodle soup and entered one of the tented restaurants. I noticed Mohanji and some of the group were already sitting there and joined them. After a while, they left and I proceeded to enjoy my noodle soup.

As the noodle soup spread it’s warmth through my body, I decided to spend some more time resting. Time went by and I realized that I was just sitting there. I was glued to the wooden bench. I had no interest to get up and proceed with the trek ahead. I just sat there watching everything around me. It felt like eternity. I struggled to do something but I was paralyzed.

fear, running

Suddenly, I heard a voice from within saying, “Run!” Here, I couldn’t even get up and something within was asking me to run. I shook my head. And then, the voice pronounced even more powerfully, “Run! Run! Run! Just run” Something took hold of me and, as if pushed out, I jolted off the bench and started running out of the tent and across the trails leading downhill from Dolmala pass.

In those high altitudes, people walk slower to conserve energy and here I was running through the trails in heavy army boots like a crazed mad man. Must have been quite a sight! I kept running for a very long time until I was sure that the inertia and lethargy had left me. I stopped running and continued to walk the trails to Diraphuk, our camp for the night.

That’s when the ordeal started. One turn around the mountain led to another; and then another; and then a new mountain would appear; and the scene would repeat all over again with no end in sight. I was stuck in an infinite loop like in the movie Groundhog Day. To add to my woes, I met the girl from the Mumbai meditation group who was in a terrible shape and was sitting by herself on the side of the trails.

She had all but given up and was preparing herself to get petrified into the surrounding barren mountain landscape. Here, I was struggling to finish the day’s trek and God sends me another struggler for company. And a “tortoise” at that. Reminded me of the Marathi idiom, “Dushkalat terava mahina” (the thirteenth month in the year of famine). Abandoning her was tempting but not an option.

helping-others-selfless-service-hand-gripping-wrist-of-arm

Given that she was doing worse than me, I had to focus on her and how to get her to complete the day’s trek. I prepared for the worst. I had figured that it may be past sunset and possibly way into the night before we get to the camp at Diraphuk. A fuller moon in the sky would ensure that we had enough light along the way.

I buckled in a bit tighter to be ready for the long haul and do whatever it takes to get both of us there. I had to employ every tool in the book to encourage her to take a few steps every now and then. And the elements played their part by peeing on our efforts by raining at frequent intervals and making things just a little bit harder.

In hindsight, her entry turned out to be a blessing in disguise for me. From the top of Dolmala pass, I had zombie walked the whole way till I met her. Because of her, I forgot all my troubles and was provided a strong intent to complete the day’s trek. As we got closer to the camp, she regained her mojo and we walked into the camp by twilight.

And, the same zombie walk was repeated for most of the last day (day 3) of the Outer Kora as well. Mohanji once remarked to me, “You only think you walked Kailash. You were unconscious. Someone carried you.” I have no choice but to grudgingly agree. I know that if it had been left to me, I would never have completed the trek by myself.

2014-07 - Mohanji - Kailash - Yatra (1840)

All through the Kailash pilgrimage, I felt a deep anguish of being separated from the Divine. It kept expressing itself very strongly several times at periodic intervals throughout the pilgrimage. Like there is an awesome party happening in the neighborhood. You can hear the sounds and see the lights. And you want so badly to be there. But no one invited you and you don’t know where it is happening so you can’t gatecrash it.

And you feel that they don’t want you there. I felt a deep agony for the fall from grace that required me to be born on earth. When alone, I would sing devotional songs, be deeply moved to tears and call out to be taken back from whence I came though I had no clue where that was.

After the first day’s trek, we reached Diraphuk which is the closest one gets to Mount Kailash on the Outer Kora. Mohanji wanted the priest to do a puja at Charan Sparsh (literally “touch the feet”) – considered the feet of Mount Kailash located a 3-4 hour trek from Diraphuk. That year, the Chinese army were denying access to Charan Sparsh.

A few members of our group went to request for permission. I didn’t know it was Charan Sparsh and erroneously thought that we were going to the base of Mount Kailash. I stood alone in front of Mount Kailash and strongly implored that I wanted to be let through to come closer (more like I deserved to).

For some strange reason, I felt I was entitled to go there and touch Mount Kailash. I cried with a deep anguish both within and without. However, we were denied access. So, we had to abandon the prospect of going there. It was not to be. I had deep feelings of betrayal and abandonment at that time.

Like the Godfather “Fredo, you broke my heart” kind of let down. I still can’t explain why I felt that way on that day. But the Master listens to all true cries of love and showers His grace to grant those wishes. This wish found fruition in my Kailash pilgrimage part deux in 2016.

I remember the night vigils when we were staying on the shores of Lake Manasarovar. We were told that divine beings come to take dips in Lake Manasarovar and appear to us as beautiful lights. Mohanji had warned us to watch and pray to them from a distance. He specifically asked us not to interact with them since their high energies could fry our nerves leaving us dead or worse in a vegetative state.

Late in the night and in the wee hours of the morning, we would sit in groups just outside the gates of the compound and patiently wait for them to show up. And show up they did! Bright lights in multi-colored hues. They would radiate a bright luminous glow, increase or decrease in size, change colors, move in all directions – come closer or go farther, go up and down, left and right – flash on and off, come close to the surface and disappear for a while (presumably taking dips in the lake).

You couldn’t mistake them for anything else. In particular, I distinctly remember this group of three with one shining brighter than the rest. They kept flashing in sequence and moving around as if dancing to unheard celestial music playing in the background. A truly blissful experience.

I did have a “surreal” out-of-the-ordinary experience. On one of the vigils, I ended up staying out longer than the rest of the group. The place was so serene that it felt just good to spend some more time out there all alone. Suddenly, I noticed light shining from my right. The place gets hazy and misty in the night and hence the light was diffuse which made the scene all the more surreal.

shiva-mount-kailash

Imagine my surprise, when I saw a few hazy white beings of light walking around a couple of hundred meters in front of me. They were slightly tall and were walking in a straight line. It looked like a scene from the movie, The Village, when the beings visit the village. I watched them with baited breath unsure whether to stay put or quietly head back.

They were too close and I was already in their presence so I decided to stay put while praying to Mohanji and the Masters to protect me. They walked quietly past me towards the end of the road. Suddenly, there was a commotion as I heard them talking to each other followed by the sound of vehicles revving up to life. They started their vehicles parked in the distance, got into them and left.

My “divine beings of light” turned out to be a group of local villagers. The light was possibly from their headlamps and they were covered from head to toe with blankets (that appeared white in the ambient light) to protect from the biting cold. Stupid people! If only they had parked their vehicles out of sight and hearing,

I would have been convinced of my surreal supernatural experience of bumping into divine beings of light. They ruined my perfect story for future generations on how I was lucky to encounter a group of divine beings and survived to tell the tale.

Throughout the pilgrimage, I got a first glimpse of the Master that was Mohanji. I was in awe of Him and maintained safe distance yet kept meandering close to Him. I was shadowing Him most of the way not really sure what was expected of me or what I expected of Him. I got to observe, first hand, some of the miraculous experiences like His face showing up on Mount Kailash complete with sunglasses and head dress. He told us, “Shiva is teasing me.”

Mohanji_Kailash

Or when we were massaging his feet on Dolmala Pass, his thighs and calves became as hard as stone and he teasingly enquired if they were like Hanuman’s. In one of the odes to Hanuman, he is referred to as Vajra deha Rudravatar – the avatar (divine incarnation) of Rudra (a form of Lord Shiva) whose body is as hard as the vajra (the thunderbolt weapon of Lord Indra – the king of Gods). Yes, they surely felt like Hanuman’s.

A brief background. Since the start of my spiritual journey, I have felt a deep connection with Mahavatar Babaji and felt his guiding hand. Incidentally, I discovered Mohanji while looking for Mahavatar Babaji spots in Maharashtra to visit during my two week motorcycle trip through Maharashtra in December 2012. I chanced upon Mohanji’s three-part blog post, “Babaji beyond Definitions”. A must read for those who haven’t.

Later, I explored his writings and teachings and also his meditations. I distinctly remember that when I left home for my first meeting with Mohanji, I had the intuition that I would meet my Master. Throughout the satsang, my eyes were glued to his feet. And yet that didn’t feel strange to me either. After the satsang, my mind played its usual tricks and I was not so sure anymore.

After the meeting, I remember telling my friend that Mohanji is good but I don’t think he is my Master. In hindsight, as Morpheus said in the movie, The Matrix, “Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.” I followed his practices quite regularly but never accepted him as my Master. Through the pilgrimage, I was led to consider the possibility that Mohanji could be the One. The question, “Who is my Master – Mahavatar Babaji or Mohanji?” bothered me.

Sujata 7 - Kailash mountain - experience with Mohanji

On our return to Kathmandu, I happened to be sitting in front of Mohanji over lunch and, as usual, an informal satsang started as he answered questions asked by the people seated around the table. In response to one of the questions, he answered my unspoken question while looking straight at me. He said, “The Master in front of you is the Master for you.”

“You may want to learn from a ‘higher’ Master but that has no relevance. A student of the first standard may want to learn from a college teacher. But he needs to progress through the intervening standards and reach the collegiate level before the college teacher can teach him anything.”

“A Master can, of course, hand a disciple over to a ‘higher’ Master if he so feels but that is based on his complete understanding of the disciple’s needs. It is not appropriate for a disciple to harbor that expectation since they don’t understand the bigger picture. The Master that is brought to you is your Master.” That put paid to the recurring question in my mind.

Since I was a relative newbie to being around a real Master, I got acquainted for the first time with the different flavors of devotion to the Master. I observed public displays of fawning devotion from many pilgrims and naively took them to be real expressions of love. I felt sad that I lacked the deep devotion within myself compared to what I saw out there. A few months later, most of them disconnected from Mohanji for trifling reasons.

Image 13-pic-15-m-biba-and-big-m-on-kailash-north-face
Mohanji, Devi and big M on Kailash north face

They chose to weigh the words of others over the truth of their own experiences. I now realize that one’s outward expressions are never a reliable measure of the depth of one’s connection. However, some like Sumit who preferred to work silently in the shadows, left a deep impression and inspired me to dig deeper and achieve a greater degree of surrender.

The same goes for experiences shared by people at the end of the pilgrimage. Some pilgrims had amazing visions of Shiva and His family or other deities. Some pilgrims had reached a point of perfect peace, bliss, joy and other good-to-be-in states. Some were experiencing perfect stillness and silence. Some released a lot while others were feeling emptiness. Some had become enlightened (ok. nobody said that but you get the drift). I, for one, felt even more confused than I was before the pilgrimage.

Another pilgrimage experience. The Manasarovar lake was very cold when we entered to take our dips. During my first dip, I found the fellow pilgrim next to me chanting the Lord’s name loudly in a continuous stuttering repetition. His body was also shaking wildly. He was not very responsive and I felt that he was in a very deep trance. Probably in communion with the Lord. I decided to discontinue my dips to watch over him and help him back.

He was in this state for a while as I stood with him and held him steady. After some time, he hinted that he wanted to head back. I held him firmly and guided him back. As we came closer to the shore, he started collecting stones excitedly and also handed me some. I figured that spiritually imbued objects become more apparent in a higher state of consciousness.

Sujata 8 - Kailash with Mohanji

Anyways, I helped him back, got him into some warm clothes and headed back to complete my dips. The next day, he sought me out and thanked me for helping him. He said that his body froze in the icy waters and he was unable to move. The chanting and the shaking were his involuntary reactions to the chilling experience. So much for my awe at being fortunate to observe one in an exalted state.

I now realize that experiences are just indicators given to seekers to suggest that they are headed in the right direction. The reason they are given and the manner in which they are given have significance only to the seeker who is experiencing. Hence, it does not make sense to compare our progress based on other people’s experiences. In some cases, the experiences are just elaborate illusions constructed by the mind to entertain itself. One’s transformation is the only true metric of one’s progress.

Life after Kailash was never the same. I attended the Rishikesh retreat with Mohanji later that year in December. Over the months, I had the grace to travel with Mohanji several times. I disappeared from office so regularly that people in my office started joking that I worked between vacations. Slowly but surely the spiral loop of my connection with Mohanji kept getting closer and closer.

Exactly a year after Kailash, I decided to quit work, a day before my birthday, to be with Mohanji for good. I wanted to be free (of the corporate rat race) on my birthday. The interesting part was that it was a very natural process. Not easy but natural. Mohanji suggested that I continue for one more year so I have time to decide before quitting. But I had had enough by then and chose to cut the cord immediately.

SUjata 4 Kailash mountain - experience with Mohanji

The Kailash pilgrimage effected a major transformation in my life and set me firmly on the path. Hence, I have nothing but the highest respect for the Kailash pilgrimage. For me, the choice to do the Kailash pilgrimage is the clarion call that a spiritual seeker answers to indicate to the universe that he is done with playing games and is ready for the highest that evolution has to offer – total and complete liberation.

Truth – From darkness to light with Mohanji

Truth of Darkness to Light With Mohanji _Mohanji Quote

By Lisa Q, UK

“Happenings happen through time and space

Everything is happening through you.

We all happened.

This moment in time is happening.

There is a lot of happenings happening.

This is how the whole play works in the Universe.

We feel we are making decisions but what decisions can we make?

Because choices are very limited between Yes or No.” Mohanji 

This is our beloved Gurudev Mohanji’s teaching and this is exactly what happened on the 23rd of February 2019 on His birthday. I surrender my every word on what happened on His holy birthday at my Gurudev’s feet. With this intense experience, everything changed inside and a new beginning happened. Using ‘I’ or ‘my’ is just to explain all these details, but in reality there is no ‘I’ left anymore.

Truth of Darkness to Light With Mohanji _Lisa
In Your light Mohanji, there is no more existence of “I”

 Since Mohanji happened to me, almost every single moment, every single day is a miracle. A lot of shifting happened, severe blockages were removed through healing, unconditional love happened, acceptance happened, realisations happened, but also negativity happened, which I constantly kept ignoring within me. A huge amount of ego happened inside me with lots of expectations, but finally Mohanji’s unconditional love and light showed me the way so smoothly and gave me lessons from within. There is nothing higher than unconditional love and nobody could be more important than the Guru, because Guru is Parabrahma.

 Supreme Consciousness is truth and purity.  The more we are able to surrender completely to that Consciousness, the more we will be free from all darkness. And indeed without Guru, we will not be able to cross this huge ocean of life. With Guru’s blessings everything is possible, it doesn’t matter how impossible it may seem. Without His blessings nothing is possible, it doesn’t matter how small we think something is, at least, not for me. I bow down at your lotus feet Gurudev Mohanji, because without your support and unconditional acceptance, I would not have been able to realize that how many things may look very simple, but in reality they could be a huge trap of the mind.

Truth of Darkness to Light With Mohanji _ALtar

 So, let’s start-up,

On Mohanji’s birthday I had planned to go to Subha didi’s place to join the UK team to celebrate His birthday. I had even planned which dress I was going to wear and which song I would be singing. But again, which decisions can we make? Divine plan was different for me and I was totally unaware what was going to happen, my inner transformation through the following experiences.  

A few days before the birthday, when one of my friends asked me to go to Skanda Vale with her, I happily agreed because Skanda Vale is always very special for me. We wanted to go on the 16th of February, but there was no accommodation available, so she booked us for the 23rd of February. When she called me about the change of dates, without a second thought, I said yes. Later on I realized that it was Mohanji’s birthday on that date and I had completely forgotten. It was too late to say no as the as the accommodation was booked. I was sad but I surrendered and said to Mohanji that may be this was predestined, but it’s ok. It was beyond my imagination that what kind of intense experience I will face within the next few hours.  

I need to mention here that I had been fighting with my inner darkness and felt completely helpless with that energy for a couple of weeks. I mentioned this to Mohanji and He said,

“Everything will be fine. Do not worry and I am with you.”

But when we are drowning in the dark energy field, most of the time mind/ego becomes so big that we cannot even recognise that. That is exactly what happened with me. I was restless but kept asking for help and stayed connected to Mohanji, as I knew when He said everything will be fine, it will be. Each word from Mohanji is so powerful and I had complete faith that it doesn’t matter how much darkness I feel inside me at this moment, my Gurudev will never fail me.

 On the 23rd of February,

We went to Skanda Vale, though I was very confused with many of fears and anxieties. What will happen if an accident occurs along the long drive, would it be very cold there, we have a small baby to carry with us (only 4 months), would this trip be successful etc. As these kinds of thoughts came across my mind, I wanted to call my friend to cancel the trip, but I surrendered my fears to Mohanji and prayed, waiting for His guidance. On the 22nd, I got confirmation telepathically that I should go ahead with the trip and it was a big relief for me. I asked my friend if we should buy a cake for Mohanji’s birthday so that we could offer it at the temple, but she said she will bake a blueberry cake and I agreed.

 We reached Skanda Vale so smoothly and safely, without a single hassle. When we reached there, first I said, “Thank you Mohanji for making this journey so smooth, but now we want to offer your birthday cake to Maha Shakti and Lord Dattatreya. Please help us.” We went to the Shakti temple for the evening puja and I mentioned to one of the monks there, “Today is Mohanji’s birthday, we have brought some cake and would like to offer it to Maha Shakti and Lord Dattatreya.” He was very happy and agreed to do so. It was fully packed with so many people that evening and when the Maha Abhishekam started, there was bhajans as usual. While singing, they took some cake and mixed with the other prasad and distributed to everyone. I felt so very happy and gave thanks to Mohanji and Maha Shakti for fulfilling my wish. Then a monk came to me and asked if I could cut the cake and give a big piece so that they could offer it to Lord Dattatreya. I felt so shy and requested him to cut the cake, but he insisted that I should. So I did and even blew out a birthday candle as if it was my birthday cake. I gave him a big piece of cake and it was offered to Lord Dattatreya.

My wishes were fulfilled and I was very excited about it, but somewhere inside my mind I was not completely happy. Afterwards, we returned back to our cottage and slept.

 On the 24th of February,

I had no plans for the day after Mohanji’s birthday, but I was not happy inside. We couldn’t attend the Shakti puja in the early morning, but went for the Ranganatha temple puja later on. I sat in front of Lord Vishnu and as the puja started, closed my eyes. Inside my heart, I was screaming with so many questions…. Why is my Gurudev physically away from me, why do I not have the qualities to stay with Him physically, why am I so helpless….. There were lots of “Why,” and I cried a lot. Then we went to the Dattatreya temple and I felt Mohanji‘s physical presence there. Suddenly I was happy and shared with my friend that this was the place we were together with Mohanji when He did Lord Dattatreya’s Pranaprathishta and how magical that day was. It seemed impossible for me to join that auspicious day with Mohanji, but He made the impossible possible in an amazing way.

 After the Ranganatha puja we came back and waited for the Muruga puja to start. My head felt very heavy, as if I was drunk. At 1.30pm, the Muruga puja started and as we started chanting mantras, I started to feel very hot despite the cold weather. When the congregation started singing, I started singing very loudly and dancing. I started shaking, there was a burning sensation in my spine and I started sweating. Suddenly, as I looked at Muruga, I felt as if I was not there in my body, and felt Mahavatar Babaji’s presence. Although I didn’t see anything specific, I just felt his presence. Then I heard the voice of Guru Subramaniam saying, “Come to me and sit in front of me. Play Kaali Kavacham and Shiva Kavacham and meditate.” As I came back to my body, I felt disorientated and didn’t recognise where I was for a few moments. All of a sudden I felt something leave me and I felt very energetic, even my friend noticed and said that I looked full of energy. I asked her to come with me after lunch so that we could go to Guru Subramaniam’s Samadhi, as this was the first time he had called me.

 We had our lunch and I rushed to go to the Samadhi. We went there and I bowed down, offering my love and respect to him. Then I played the Kaali Kavacham and Shiva Kavacham and meditated.

Meditating at Guru Samadhi

After a few moments I realised that again I was outside of my body. As I opened my eyes, I saw that I was inside Guru Subramaniam’s Samadhi! I quickly touched my forehead on his feet and saw a bright light in the middle of his heart. I wasn’t sure what to do next, but gradually settled down and said, “Guru, you know everything about me and how powerless I am. I cannot stay with my Gurudev Mohanji nor am I able to serve Him properly. Why am I so powerless?” He started to speak very sternly, but with pure love and said, “You are not powerless, you have the highest power inside you.” I was so amazed to hear this. Then he said, “Why do you think I called you here? I only called you here because of that power which is burning inside your heart and that power is your LOVE for God and your PASSION for God. From now on never say again that you are powerless. With that power you can shake anything, even God too.” He blessed me and said, “Light a lamp on the top of my Samadhi,” and at that moment I returned back to my body. I lit two candles as instructed, chanted the Mohanji Gayatri mantra and made 9 circumambulations around Guru’s Samadhi. I sprinkled my hands, face, hair, chest and navel with the water from Guru’s Samadhi and drank some water from the Shivalingam there.

 By this time it was almost 6pm, so we went to the Shakti temple for the evening puja straight from there. I sat down in the temple and started chanting the Kaali mantra. When I closed my eyes it was as if there was nothing left in this world. The puja started, we did chanting and singing. I was looking at Ma and kept calling her within me, “Ma… Ma… Ma.” After a few moments, an amazing vision formed in front of me. It was really strange, and I have never had this kind of experience ever before. I saw my body slowly starting to expand; it became so very big that when I looked down I saw all the monks and other people looking like little puppets. It felt strange to observe them, as if it was a puppet show and I was watching the small puppets performing a holy play. Then I saw another vision, they were offering me a crown, lots of gold and new clothes. Very beautifully, they were decorating me as a new bride. Then all of a sudden, I was in my body again and when I looked at Ma, she asked me, “Where is the separation?” I said, “Ma, there is no separation between you and me. You are inside my heart and I am inside you. No separation at all Ma.” I felt so joyful and after the puja finished, we came back to our accommodation.

 That same night, Mohanji came in my dream. Actually, this was not a dream; it was another dimension of life. Initially I saw a small monster which slowly became bigger and bigger and finally so huge and it was trying to capture me, but certain divine forces came and destroyed it. After it was killed, I took a shower. After a few moments, I suddenly saw Mohanji sitting at a very special place and asking someone, “Where is Lisa?” I was nearly there and said, “Gurudev, I am here.” He looked at me and smiled. Then I went near and sat down beside Him and Mohanji said, “Tell me, what do you want from me?” I touched His feet and said nothing, and we sat there together for a little while. When I woke up, that feeling was still within me. It was more real than His physical presence. And I felt that everything had changed within me. A huge shift had happened to me with all these confirmations that there is no separation. We are all One Consciousness and that is the TRUTH. Until now, this truth was a theory to me but now I am able to realise what actually Mohanji says about Alignment. All these experiences were so intense and real that nothing can shake my trust in Mohanji anymore.

 The next day was the last day at Skanda Vale and Ma said, “Before you leave, come to me.”  We went and on the way to the Shakti temple, when we were standing in front of Guru’s Samadhi, the candle I had lit was still burning and my happiness had no limits. The burning candle was a symbol of my love for my Gurudev Mohanji!

 We returned to London with the bliss of silence and only I knew how big this experience was for my small logical mind. This whole experience was beyond any imagination, without any expectations and when I shared all this with Gurudev Mohanji, He told me that all these experiences were TRUE and that I must write them down in detail and chew it at leisure as a cow does and digest it with time.

Some experiences should be digested with time.

And I think I will need a long time to digest these huge amount of experiences.

I bow down at your lotus feet Gurudev Mohanji and the entire Guru Mandala for bringing me from Darkness to Light and giving me the realisation about ONENESS.

At Your feet for ever!

 Jai Mohanji!

 

“The mission of every guide on Earth is to lead a generation and beyond to the light of truth. Truth is very simple – YOU ARE THAT. You are the imperishable, immovable, colourless, formless, self-illuminating, brilliant entity that exists beyond time and space.” — Mohanji

Stone to Crystal

By Subhasree, UK

M walking1.jpg

In 4 days Mohanji is coming! Well, I can’t miss the counting, even if I do, my 9 year old son Sambhav keeps reminding me every day – “7 days more & Mohanji coming”, “6 days more and Mohanji coming”…so on and so forth. Pure innocent children resonate more with Mohanji, the innocence incarnate! Sambhav’s excitement is pure, no expectation, no ritual, no formality, no stress! Not only he is excited and counting days of Mohanji’s coming, he also keeps me on my track and checks, “what are you going to give Mohanji for dinner?” Therefore, I had better keep everything planned! Mohanji’s bodyguards can be found in any form! May be this time, in form of Sambhav! Hahahaha…

Amidst all preparations – cleaning, shopping, packing, scheduling, planning, (the list is not a short one!), the excitement pervades. Time is flying. Especially the last week has gone so fast, as if there are only 4 hours in a day, not 24 hours! This is a proper festive season – just like Dussera, Diwali or Christmas. However, none of the chores brings any fatigue. There is only Joy and joy everywhere. Mohanji is already with us through these preparations. We are living Mohanji every moment!

Well, as much as I would like to just constrain myself in this joyful festive environment, I still have to keep on continuing my Dharma, my duty. Compassion Incarnate, Mohanji made sure that my Dharma (duty) also becomes joyful. Two days in a row, I was drenched with BLISS through experiences that showed me the power of Surrender and Devotion and reiterated Mohanji as the Sole existence.

I would like share these two experience here.

Experience during Mai Tri Healing

Mr Patel (Name changed to respect his anonymity) wanted to have Mai Tri healing done on his ailing old mother (I would address here as “Aunty”). Despite the back-to-back tasks, I could not say no, as that was my dharma to be available when someone needs. They came in and we had some chats about Mohanji’s visit, the programmes, aunty’s health, hospital trips etc. Aunty had lost her husband recently and still in that shock which has affected her health. Whenever she comes home for healing, she looks at Mohanji’s photo and talks to Him. Like a child, smile doesn’t leave her lips, her face brightens up and she feels very happy and relaxed. It was the same this time too, though she looked much more frail and disturbed and quiet when she came in. After the chat, we started Mai Tri Healing. Mohanji was already with us through the chat that we had started.

During the process, while I was at her Heart Chakra, I suddenly saw and felt her husband, sitting for healing (instead of aunty) and I am doing Healing to him. Exactly how he looked before, in his white shirt, smile on his radiant face. I felt the softness of his chest as if I am doing healing on his heart chakra! Then in few seconds, I heard Mr Patel asking Mohanji (who I see sitting next to Mr Patel in the sofa), “Mohanji please tell where is Dad now? Is he waiting for mom or has he taken a birth, how is he?” Mohanji replied, “It doesn’t matter where he is. He is always with your mother.”

After hearing this, I moved on to other chakras and eventually healing process completed. When I opened my eyes, the vision, the words were still vivid. No ambiguity, no blurriness.

From all my Mai Tri Healing experiences so far, I know one thing for sure. When I surrender completely and offer myself as, and only as, the instrument of Mohanji’s energy to flow in, Mohanji’s presence then becomes inevitable. His divine energy and through His, the entire Guru Mandala’s energy flows in. During healing what I see or hear is all that He sees & hears or whatever He wants me & the receiver to see and hear! Nothing is ever imagination or illusion.

This incident again proved this.

After I finished the process, I narrated this vision to Mr Patel. His mouth was wide open. He said to me, “While you were doing healing, sitting here on the sofa, I was directly looking at Mohanji’s photo and asked him, Mohanji, is dad still waiting for Mom? Will Mom go to him and be with him again?”

It was crystal clear that while Mr Patel was having his conversation with Mohanji, I was hearing that during the healing. Mohanji not only answered to him verbally, but also by showing me the vision of Uncle sitting for Healing, He showed that Uncle is still present with Aunty during the Heart chakra healing.

To see and understand this ultimate truth of Divine Existence of Mohanji is as easy when you get that visibility. It would be wonderful when everyone (hopefully one day!) will be able to see this truth.

We have to develop EYES while we can and while the master is available.

Like a little baby open his eyes slowly after taking birth, my eyes are opening slowly too. I also understand that from an ordinary stone lying somewhere in the ground, with Mohanji’s shine, I am converting into Crystal that can reflect the shine!

Shree Ram in Treta Yug had converted a rock into Rishi Devi Ahalya (who was lying there as a rock for many yugas), just by touching his feet on the rock. In this Kali Yuga, Mohanji is turning many more stones like me to light reflecting crystals! How amazing divine Leela!

Experience during reading a Blog

Another of my dharma was a schedule discussion event happening soon for which I was going trough some of Mohanji’s blogs. Despite the lined of activities for the whole day, I was determined to read few blogs today. I picked up the Babaji series – 1, 2 & 3.

Throughout the day, I was reading the series one after another. Of course, in between, I had to get up to do chores. However, the consciousness stayed with the blogs. What I read, was playing on inside. We had a family get together in the evening, for which I sent my husband and kids earlier and planned to be with them around 9 pm, just before dinner. After they all left home and all chores finished, I sat down to read the third blog in the series. By the time I finished reading, I felt very different. It was not normal fatigue or anything. I just couldn’t even get up from the sofa. My head felt heavy and I felt feverish. I didn’t understand what was it. I just slowly lie down on the sofa itself, in front of Mohanji’s picture. This is our Healing sofa – meaning when people come for Mai Tri Healing, they lie down on the sofa. For the first time, I was lying down on this Healing sofa!

As soon as lied down, I was unconscious. I had no sense of time, or fact that I had to go somewhere! Suddenly I came to sense and saw the time was about 9 pm! Even though I came to senses and eyes are opened, I still had the feeling of BLISS intact. I didn’t want move or go anywhere and talk! So I just sent a message to my husband that I am not feeling well and won’t be able to join them, I straight went to bed and slept.

When I woke up the next morning, I realised what I went through last evening was probably a cleansing process that I went through with reading the blog. It was the power of Mohanji’s energy that permeated through His blog to me and the cleansing happened.

WOW! Just by reading the blogs, this happened.

While I was cleaning my home in preparation for Mohanji’s visit, He was cleansing me through His presence during Mai Tri Healing and through the Blogs reading.

I realised that ,

no blog is by accident. Everything is positively transformational. Everything has a positive purpose. Everything is real.

Let me tell you, after these cleansing effects and the experiences, I suddenly had so much of inner energy to continue with my triple, quadruple amount of chores that I am racing to finish before Mohanji arrives.

The waiting and preparation for Mohanji’s arrival has become such a joy! Mohanji is with me, while not physically being with me.

When he says, “I am with you. I am in you”, He really means!

I have realised the beautiful fact now that fill me with immense joy and Bliss. Eternal Bliss.

My gratitude for my Gurudev for giving me this Bliss and everything even beyond my expectation. Giving me a taste of what it means “Being Merged” with you, Para Brahma!

For ever at your feet. Koti Pranam and endless Love, My Guruji.

With Mohanji Skandavale

Faith that leads to Awareness

Experiences shared by Shaju Mangalam and Rajiv Duggal (India), Punam Kapoor (Canada) who lovingly share some of their cherished moments of deep connection with Mohanji. 

divinity.jpg

Mohanji says “Faith happens, sooner or later. When ego subsides and gets nullified through consistent downfalls, faith happens. Faith leads. Faith soothes. Faith reinforces. Faith nurtures life. Faith elevates life. Faith stabilizes life. Faith liberates man. Faith increases with experiences. Faith decreases when we disown our own experiences, swapping then for another’s opinion or book knowledge. Faith increases when surrender becomes absolute.” 

Shaju Mangalam from Bangalore, India

Shaju shares with us his experience of Mohanji’s love, the joy of being in His physical presence and a blessed connection to other Masters during a deep meditation.

Shaju

I would like to share a unique but life-changing experience I had a few days ago when I spent a night at Mohanji’s ashram in Bangalore. On 16th May, I had dinner at the ashram and conversed with Mohanji on various topics including Ammucare activities in India. Next morning, after finishing my sadhana (spiritual practice), I had the opportunity to have breakfast with Mohanji. His eyes sparkled as he looked at me fondly saying, “Daddu, have more dosa and upma, you eat well!” I was so humbled and became emotional as He was serving me the food Himself. My eyes filled with tears even as I wondered whether to smile or cry. It was pure love in abundance which made me feel this way. Before I left, Mohanji looked at me and said, “Daddu, come in the evening too. I am leaving tomorrow. Come!” I felt it was a blessing to be with Him again and to spend one more night at His altar!

The energy at the ashram was amazing, and I had never felt this anywhere! It was mesmerizing and so vibrant! The call of the Guru meant something. I said, “I will be there.” I rushed back after office to the ashram even though it was almost 30km away. I felt like I was going back to my home. I had a small satsang (spiritual discussion) with Mohanji and I could feel powerful energy again engulfing me. After dinner, Mohanji called me upstairs inviting me to watch television with Him and suggested that I sit next to Him! Sometime later, I went downstairs and sat talking to the others. Mohanji was in His room doing His work.

God_exists_quote

After a few minutes, I closed my eyes. I was in a state of deep trance. I could see Mahavatar Babaji and all the Masters near me and I could feel Babaji around throughout. The sight was magnificent and I had never felt or seen this before in my life! I don’t know how long I was in that state. Seeing me in that state of meditation, others in the room quietly moved out as they didn’t want to disturb me. Being in the presence of Babaji and all Masters of the lineage was the opportunity of a lifetime for me! I didn’t feel like opening my eyes. I didn’t want to come back to the normal state.

Babaji

I could see the blue light moving away as Babaji left. Babaji gave me two powerful messages. The first message was:

“Be silent and never react to any situations or events which are either positive or negative. It will just pass. But if you react, the extension of sufferings will prolong. Silence is the only way to live!”

The second one: 

“Don’t take anything in life for granted. Nothing is acquired by you. It’s all given to you and nothing is accidental or coincidental.”  

These two powerful messages struck me like lightning and after a few minutes, the environment in the room changed back to normal. I too came back to my normal state.

I realized that this powerful vision could happen only in the presence of Mohanji in the ashram. Every inch of this house, where Mohanji is residing, has become a power center and hence divine Masters are able to visit there.

I shared this experience with Mohanji the next morning and He said, “This is the way masters work. They may not come a second time and it’s your duty and responsibility along with firm determination to hear and apply the messages you received in your life.” I felt very humbled and didn’t have the words to say anything further.

Recently, when I went to the ashram, I  feel a strong presence of Lord Hanuman there. Yesterday, I was sitting at the corner of the room where Mohanji was having an informal satsang with some visitors and looking at his face from the corner of the room, I saw Lord Hanuman’s face clearly. His beard on sides looking grey and cheek expanded, There was no mistake in recognizing Hanuman. This was clearly not my illusion. As long as Mohanji was speaking, Hanuman’s face was clearly visible. With that vision, I closed my eyes and I felt the presence of Hanuman even more strongly.

Hanumanji.jpg

In that moment, I lost the feeling of my own body. After sometime, I went to the room upstairs to take some rest, still carrying the divine experience, and what did I see? An idol of Hanumanji in the room and a packet of sweets! As if Hanumanji himself was offering me prasad. I took a piece and tried to rest a bit. However, after the vision of Hanumanji in Mohanji’s face and the divine experience, my body was going through a different kind of energy surge. Even when I lay down, my body was rolling! This was the effect on me in the presence of my Guru Mohanji, in this powerful ashram, where my Guru Resides! Where He resides, the Divine resides, all Gods, all Gurus reside. The logical mind may discard this experience as an illusion, but in our Golden Path of Liberation, there is no logic, no doubt, no illusion. Only complete surrender.

I surrender to you my Lord, my Guru, Mohanji. Let your grace and blessing enlighten my life and everyone else who has the faith and surrender at your feet.

Jai Mohanji!

Experience shared by Punam Kapoor, Canada

Punam narrates how Mohanji’s presence was very much felt during a day at work and how faith helped overcome a complicated problem.

Punam_with Mohanji.jpg

Today, Mohanji was with me at work, helping me to not only meet my daily targets but also bringing my attention to a gap in one of the procedures which had a big impact on the workflow and volumes.  While working on a case, I suddenly felt that my fingers could not type anymore – my hands just stopped. I tried to sit up straight and tried to type again, but I could not. Then my thoughts vanished.  I looked at Mohanji. He had blessed one of His cards and given it to me while we were at the Machu Picchu retreat and I keep it beneath my computer monitor at work so that I can remember Him while working.

Mohanji seemed to say something. I asked Him, “Please tell me what is it.” Suddenly He gave me a vision; it was a sentence that came to my mind. I opened a blank email and quickly typed. Lo and behold! I read it and understood what He had guided me to do. The cursor automatically moved to where I had to start the message.

oneness_quote.png

It was Him typing. Because my hands were moving too fast and the keyboard was loud, people around me looked at me. However, I continued typing. Finally the message finished and I edited and sent it. It was a suggestion to either add new steps in the existing procedure or to create a new one.

After sending it, I talked to Mohanji and said “Mohanji, how can the change happen with just one case because the National Office will reject it saying it is only one case”. Immediately I received an email response from one of the subject matter experts (SME) explaining the details of the current procedure.  On the other side, one of my other colleagues, who was the reference person, passed by and just said,”The SME did not understand your point, go back to him.” She came and went like the wind. Things were happening so fast. I typed the response and sent it to the SME. I went to my next case file and, Oh my Lord, it had all the details that were required to support the suggestion that Mohanji gave me! All I had to do was copy and paste the details from there and send another email. In the next 10 minutes, the manager responded by saying, “Good catch, Punam. This suggestion will be forwarded to the National Office.”

Mohanji Gurudev, my koti koti pranaams to You for not only showing me the gap in the procedures but for also preparing the message and bringing up the very next case which was required as evidence to support the suggested change in procedures.

It was not me but Mohanji showing me the gap……

It was not me but Mohanji typing…

It was not me but Mohanji who brought up the evidence……

It is Mohanji…

It is Mohanji…..

Only Mohanji…….

 Thank you for showing me that You are with me……always!

 Jai Mohanji!

Experience shared by Rajiv Duggal, Bangalore, India

Rajiv shares with us how Mohanji’s compassion and love made him feel protected and filled him with gratitude.

Mohanji_Hugging_Rajiv

I would like to share an experience, which reiterated my faith in the omnipresence of Father, as I call Mohanji lovingly, every minute in our life, protecting and guiding us with his unconditional love.

Having spent few days with Him at the the Bosnian Pyramids, a high-energy spiritual power centre, I was feeling blessed and energetic. I came back to India and soon got busy with my day-to-day life – the work and the associated stress. However, the moments of grace experienced in Mohanji’s presence in Bosnia had been protecting me like a strong shield. This is the shield of Mohanji’s energy field which is the unconditional love and compassion of a father for his son. The Shaktipat that I received from Mohanji at the powerful tunnel in Bosnian Pyramid, had taken out a lot of blockages and, in turn, filled me with positive energy, power and a stronger connection with my father, Mohanji.

shaktipath_Rajiv.jpg

However, yesterday was one of those bad days when I was feeling very low due to the many negative things happening at the same time. I was feeling a total lack of energy to perform my work. I was a bit disappointed with myself for being so depressed and the thought of Mohanji came to me immediately. I knew that with my thoughts, Mohanji would come to me. Suddenly, at that moment, I received a message from Mohanji asking about my health! Mohanji was in Europe thousands of miles away and in a different time zone! I was in tears. Those were tears of gratitude at the realization of the immense blessing in our life – having our Guru taking care of us at every moment, in every way possible, even if he is physically far away from us. Knowing my need for his presence physically, and not just in consciousness, he sent me the message. I took the signal and  immediately called and spoke with him. It was such a transformational talk between the most loving father and his son.

keep_your_faith_quote

During the talk, I found out that He had actually taken a bath in the afternoon! He had already had his bath early morning as usual. However, he bathed again in the afternoon to ward off my negativity and cool me down. He was taking on my negativities and, in turn, giving me the positive energy I needed. And as I required physical communication to energize me, He even talked to me.

I bow down in humility before the Supreme Master, His unconditional love and protection is with all of us always. He knows exactly when and how we need Him, and He does his job without fail.

I can only attribute the immense grace and blessing in this life to a huge spiritual bank balance of sadhana that I must have carried forward from previous lives! My deepest gratitude to this great soul, the ever-loving, ever compassionate Father of All.

Jai Mohanji!

Time and again Mohanji shows us that when one has love and faith in the Guru, His grace keeps us protected. When we stay connected to the Guru, He takes care of everything!
