Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 123 & 124

by Christopher Greenwood

Day 123 Lesson – Living for the world

Good morning everybody. I hope that you’re doing well. 

The time I’ve spent with Mohanji has opened my eyes to many new observations about the world that I never had before. Some of these have included understanding the depths and levels of greed, selfishness, and manipulation in the world in various dimensions. The more I’ve become aware of these and the negative traits that exist, the more it’s given me a greater appreciation for those living selflessly, doing good in the world, who are pushing through their activities to leave it a better place for those who come. 

I especially feel privileged to be part of this family, of all the platforms where everybody is putting in their time, effort, resources, and skills towards this end – to uplift humanity and change lives for the better. Personally, I’ve begun to experience the freedom and the feelings which come from doing acts, giving time, serving, and expecting nothing in return – a real sense of freedom that’s growing and evolving.

I’m exploring this, which is very different from my earlier mindset because I was very sceptical about people who said they were doing a lot for the world, as then I didn’t believe that there could be an actual selfless act. I thought that every action would have some aspect of self-interest, whether it was promotion or prestige or to look good in front of somebody else. But now, coming with this group, with this family, I can see that actually, that’s not the case, as many people are just living selflessly. 

I have learnt to tell if someone is genuine. Many people say that they’re doing activities. Mohanji says he’s doing activities as well, that he belongs to the world, that he lives for the world. So how can you really tell if someone is genuine?

For me, a clear display is when people act and live what they speak. Having lived with Mohanji, he lives what he says without compromise. I observe this daily, and it’s demonstrated through all the platforms he has founded. But I was surprised to understand he has mandated a law in Switzerland which states that when he leaves the body, all his wealth and assets will go to those who love him and stand by him. So that right until old age, everybody’s taken care of, everybody will be looked after, everybody who’s been with him will be part of that family. He has made it so that the law cannot be changed. He changed the definition of what family means!! It also means whatever comes to him will be left back for the world. So, he is living for the world.

It’s a clear sign that he means what he says. This is registered in Switzerland, and all the foundation activities are audited by the federal government. For example, there are also people who earn a lot of money, say 1 million, and then they can give 10,000. They share that they’re giving 10,000 but don’t tell anyone they’re earning a million. But here, with this law, the aim that I can see is that whatever is acquired will be accessible back to the world. I was impressed when I heard this because, as an organization, it’s another level of transparency that demonstrates that what we speak and what we do are the same; there’s no distortion. 

I hope you have a great day ahead, and I’ll share another message with you again very soon.

Day 124 Lesson – Believe in yourself 

Good morning everybody. I hope that you’re doing very well. 

As I’ve spent time with Mohanji, there’s been plenty of opportunities to hear and understand more about his life before he was known as Mohanji. When I reflect on these stories, I realize that these are powerful lessons. Because for me, more than verbal teaching, Mohanji simply lives life fearlessly, which becomes the lesson – his life becomes a lesson. All the challenges, adversities, and how he handles everything can be taken as a lesson. 

If I was to boil it all down to a very crystalline essence, or what I take personally from Mohanji’s life, the lesson is to believe in yourself. Beyond all the meditations, kriyas, and practices, this is where I take a big lesson from and contemplate the question, “Do you believe in yourself”. It’s a huge question from my point of view, and I can only speak for that because Mohanji believed in himself. We have what we see now as Mohanji, the Mohanji Foundation, and all the platforms. 

Nine years ago, he decided to change everything in his life. He was the country head of a shipping company for five countries, very successful, making good money, and had great contacts. He had built a successful career spanning 22 years, and he had a family to support. Then, he decided to change his field completely. He decided that he was going to serve the world. Whilst he was alive, he would use his life well. Who would do this? 

Twenty-two years of career, successful experience, contacts, and networks; all were completely left behind. Everything which he had earned during his career was put into three companies. Twenty-two years’ worth of activity was invested into three companies, which were then taken away from him. He had nothing, just himself, but he believed in himself.

There’s also a story of when he set up Ammucare (in the name of his late daughter Ammu) to serve the world. Many people asked, “What is your investment? How much money are you going to put into this organization?” Mohanji simply said, “The investment is myself”. They laughed and said it wouldn’t last a year, yet eighteen years later, Ammucare is serving hundreds and thousands of people and animals every year, and it’s growing. So this is a real inspiration and lesson.

I’ve used it a lot during my time here because I’ve been confronted with many situations I hadn’t experienced or I couldn’t do before. I’ve been pushed well beyond my previous capacities, and each time Mohanji reminded me, “Just believe in yourself. And also, if you can’t believe in yourself, then you can believe in me.” 

This is important because I’ve experienced that it’s visible when I have some doubts about myself, or I’m not so confident, or I do not believe in myself. Because in my mind, I’m neither here nor there. Especially if that’s about a decision or an idea, the activity also becomes weak. There’s no real consistency. 

But when belief comes, “I can do this, I know what I’m doing. This is why I’m doing it, I have this reason. And I’m happy I’m doing this.”, then it brings strength to it. That, in turn, brings efficiency and clarity. So that is developing – that belief and being clear, “This is what I want to do.” 

I hope you have a good day. We will speak soon.

AWAKENING TO THE MYTH OF FREE WILL

By Stasa Misic, Serbia

Right at the beginning, I have to say that I have always had a wonderful life as far as material things are concerned, as well as the love of my beautiful family. I never really lacked anything, and I always had everything I needed and more. This only means that I had chosen perfect parents to whom I am grateful, for accepting me as their daughter. Since childhood, I have been tormented by questions on the meaning of life, that is to say, its meaninglessness. Does it really all come down to being born, studying, working, and dying? In one word: suffering! What’s it all for? I had a thousand and one questions to which my mother could not answer, so that in the end, she even bought me a book, ‘One Thousand Questions and Answers’, thinking that this will put her out of her misery. However, I found no answers to my questions in that book. I recall how even in preschool, I was pondering upon the question: “If I hadn’t been born and did not exist in this world, would I know that?”

My intensive search for answers began in the year 2000 when I fell into depression. That’s when for the first time, I experienced homeopathy, which without a doubt helped me the most. The cause of my sorrow was the course of my life which, upon finishing secondary school, was no longer going down the ‘normal’ path. Everyone around me was finishing their studies on time, getting a job, getting married, having children, while I was feeling completely stuck in the midst of it all. Absolutely nothing in my life went the way “it’s prescribed, and it should be”. Of course, that’s when I started reading many books on spirituality. One of the first ones was ‘Awakening’, which was bought once again by my lovely mother, who made the right choice this time.

After that came other books, TV programs, videos… followed by the workshops on psychological wellbeing and self-help. I tried all sorts of things and methods, which I practiced scrupulously, continuously, and for a long time to change my life in a material sense (and by that, I don’t mean just financially). But nothing was happening. While applying each of those methods, I’d always develop a big expectation. I wouldn’t have been doing them in the first place if I hadn’t been expecting some positive results, at least in some aspect of my life. But nothing was happening. Afterwards would always follow disappointment and sorrow. And then I’d lift myself up once again, giving it another try, which would always end up with the same negative outcome.

Then came May 2013, and my first meeting with Mohanji in a satsang in Novi Sad. I remember him answering the first question on free will, saying in his first sentence that free will is just a myth and that it exists only before we take this body. At that moment, I had a feeling as if I was relieved of an enormous burden, and I felt an incredible lightness! Since then, I started attending the meditations regularly, and the next year followed the first retreat as well.

Soon I discarded all the techniques I used to practice, which were only adding to my burden, and I simply started gradually accepting life circumstances. Thanks to Mohanji, I now realized that the only thing that I can change is the way in which I perceive my situations in life and nothing else! And even more important, I was paying less and less attention to what others think I should do with my life and whether they think my lifestyle is normal or not. Peace started settling within me. Of course, this peacefulness still gets disrupted, but the states of peace and bliss are becoming longer and longer. 

My life, as seen from the outside, was still the same! Nothing has changed! I still don’t have a ‘normal’ steady job, nor my family, husband, nor children. I have nothing that is considered ‘normal.’

However, deep inside, I have changed. I no longer have expectations, and for that reason, I also don’t have disappointments because of something that didn’t happen. I accept life situations more and more, and the urge for an impulsive reaction is less. I also started releasing myself from the guilt for not doing things differently. I stopped forcing myself to be something I’m not. And all those people who were making me feel guilty and who had plenty of ‘wise’ advice for me are gone from my life. I also started interfering less in other peoples’ lives with my advice, as I finally realized that everyone has their own path to follow and that it could be no other way, no matter how disastrous this path might look to us, the outsiders! 

Naturally, I am still far from that complete inner purity, and I still get upset, bothered and angry by others. But when it happens, I am aware of my anger, and I try to see the situation from a different perspective. For who am I to determine whether something is right or wrong and whether someone should behave differently?!

Apart from meditations, Conscious Walking, Kriya, and Yoga, I found incredible help in Mohanji’s blogs that I have been translating for a long time and my modest volunteering engagement for Mohanji Foundation. I am very grateful for this opportunity to do something that I immensely enjoy doing and which is at the same time beneficial to others as well.

Never in my life have I searched for a Guru, nor did I have any idea what is the purpose of having one. It all simply happened the way it did because it had been written so even before we came here, just like Mohanji said. I try as much as I can to go with the flow of life, resist less, and give my maximum in the given circumstances. And all those other desires that I used to have, I no longer long for. If they are meant to come true, at the right time, they will; and if not, it only means that they weren’t supposed to happen in the first place.

I’d like to express my infinite gratitude to Mohanji for finding me, as well as to all the people who led me to him and to all of those who helped me realize Mohanji’s immense spiritual power. Not everyone has the privilege to comprehend His immense spiritual stature and power. I don’t know if I would have, hadn’t I been surrounded by such wonderful people who helped me in it.

Finally, of course, I’d like to express my gratitude to my wonderful parents and the entire family who have been supporting me immensely in all this in every sense of the word.

Infinitely grateful!

My tryst with destiny – connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness

By Ananth Nalabanda, UK

Beginning…

I was guided by the Universe to chant the Aditya Hridayam (a powerful hymn dedicated to the Sun God) daily whilst studying at the ashram of Sri Sathya Sai Baba. After chanting Aditya Hridayam daily in the morning for two years, I had a vision of Sathya Sai Baba prophesying meeting my Guru in this lifetime. He showed a vision of a sage with a long white beard! I had no clue who this powerful Master was.

Fast-forward 30 years, I travelled to Prasanthi Nilayam in January 2020 and had one of my best energy experiences at the samadhi of Sri Sathya Sai Baba. I returned to London and was guided to include Gayatri Mantra sadhana along with my daily Aditya Hridayam chanting. 

Two months into my sadhana, the Coronavirus pandemic peaked in the world. I was scared initially being in the front-line, but as my sadhana continued, I felt energised with my practice. One night, I heard a voice saying ‘Akkalkot Maharaj’ in my dream state. I started exploring about Akkalkot Maharaj, which led me to Mohanji. I felt all holy Masters were working in unison. 

By divine grace, I came across Mohanji’s divine mission, and there was no looking back.

Humbling experience….

I read about the Mai-Tri Method and was fascinated about it and applied to be trained in the Method. Even though I am a trained medical doctor, I always felt an inner calling to offer holistic medicine to my patients. This had taken me on the journey of training myself with different energy healing practices such as Reiki, Angelic Reiki, etc.

I received an email from the Mai-Tri Method team rejecting my application for the Mai-Tri Method training. I offered my sincere gratitude to the team as they kick started my transformation process. It was a truly humbling experience. I read more about the Mai-Tri Method and how it involves connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness. I got in touch with the Mohanji UK team and what happened next is beyond my wildest imagination…it was as if some unknown force was guiding me.

I was kindly included in the Mohanji UK group by Vijay and the first thing posted in the group was about the pilot on ‘Invest in Awareness’ programme conducted by Nimika, Olivera and Bilajana. During my participation in the programme, I was informed by NellyAnne about the Early Birds Club. I started being part of the early morning meditations and service activities after getting in touch with Jay and Rashila. 

The more I got involved in the early morning meditations, the more I started experiencing a deep connection to Mohanji. I started doing his meditations, and an intense desire to read about Mohanji’s teachings led me to Subhasree. Vijay and Subhasree live very close to where I live, and it was no coincidence that within one month of knowing Mohanji, I was deep into reading about him from the books I received.

Agony….

An intense desire to meet Mohanji in person started burning me from the inside. It was further compounded by the fact that Mohanji was physically present just a few minutes from my place, a year ago. 

It reached its peak, and I slept one night crying, not being able to control myself. The next morning, I see a message on Facebook about an opportunity to meet Mohanji virtually on August 15th, 2020. 

I was initially hesitant to submit a video/audio to the Podcast team to facilitate this virtual meeting, but Mohanji had his own way of encouraging me. One evening, whilst I was chanting the Mohanji’s Gayatri mantra and thinking whether to submit my audio clip about the podcast – Mohanji’s book, which was on the shelf, literally flew and fell down near me! 

I was a little shaken. It was as if Mohanji was saying, you wanted to see me, and now when the opportunity arises, you are shying away!!! After this experience, I submitted my testimonial to the podcast team and had my first virtual darshan of Mohanji on August 15th, 2020.

Mai-Tri session 23/08/2020 

I came across a group Mai-Tri session to be conducted by Subhasree on August 23rd and enrolled myself for it. I also came to know that this day was sacred to Mohanji’s family. 

August 23rd 2020, 3.45 PM – 4 PM. This was one of the most significant days of my life. What I experienced during this Mai-Tri session was beyond my imagination. I share it with the deepest gratitude to Mohanji.

Subhasree asked the participants to have a clear intention for the session, and I had two:

  1. I have an energy block on the right side of the body due to jump-starting my Kundalini energy through improper tantric practices, and I sincerely repented following it. I prayed to Mohanji to forgive me and, if possible, help me with unblocking of the energy on my right.
  2. I prayed sincerely, that even if he is unable to forgive me, he should help me connect to his consciousness.

Life-changing moment…

Mid-way through the session, I suddenly felt a movement of energy in my right lower limb, followed by the right upper limb. Tears started flowing from my eyes as I felt Mohanji’s presence and his mercy. As I started feeling his presence in front of me, Subhasree started chanting the following verse:

Om Shata Sahasra Suryaaya Vidmahe

Avadhootaaya Dheemahi

Tanno Mohan: Prachodayaat

I understand the essence of Mohanji as the brightness of more than a hundred thousand suns together. I recognise this brightness as highly auspicious. May this being called Mohanji enlighten me (Guru Leela, Book 2, Mohanji Foundation)

Then the moment which I will never forget in my life happened. I saw Mohanji, right in front of me, growing bigger and bigger and taking a huge form; it was His Vishwaroopa!!! I was suddenly reminded of this sloka from the Bhagavad Gita, which is so close to my heart.

śhrī-bhagavān uvācha

su-durdarśham idaṁ rūpaṁ dṛiṣhṭavān asi yan mama

 devā apy asya rūpasya nityaṁ darśhana-kāṅkṣhiṇaḥ

 nāhaṁ vedair na tapasā na dānena na chejyayā

 śhakya evaṁ-vidho draṣhṭuṁ dṛiṣhṭavān asi māṁ yathā

The Supreme Lord said: This form of mine that you are seeing is exceedingly difficult to behold. Even the celestial gods are eager to see it. Neither by the study of the Vedas, nor by penance, charity, or fire sacrifices, can I be seen as you have seen me. BG 11.52-53 https://www.holy-bhagavad-gita.org/chapter/11/verse/52-53

I was knocked off for 1-2 minutes after experiencing this divine form of Mohanji. Thousands of images and thoughts started flooding me. The image which Sri Sathya Sai Baba showed me 30 years ago flashed before me. He is the one!!! A deep understanding of the vision I had 30 years ago and the emotional roller-coaster of my life all came to a standstill. 

The wait was over. I recognised the divine Master!

As I write this in all humility, I feel foolish to have limited such a magnificent, unparalleled and universal consciousness of Mohanji to his physical frame. He is beyond constraints of time and space! He is not in a faraway place, but in a place within our reach, our own heart where our soul resides. I am grateful to Mohanji for this incredible experience and offer my sincere gratitude to Subhasree for facilitating this.

Limitless Grace

shaktipat

by Mohana Padma Priya

His Grace has followed me everywhere; he has shown me his presence and support so many times that it is impossible to count. His love has opened my heart and helped me see my true nature, to find selflessness and love inside of it.

This is a short story of how Mohanji’s teachings and his presence has transformed me.

I met Mohanji in April 2016 for Kriya initiation. Before that, I had been to only 2 meditations and knew about Mohanji barely for 2-3 weeks. In such a short time, he came into my life. I was looking for a Guru for a few months and prayed to Lord Krishna to bless me with a Guru. I did not expect to meet him in person in this life; I always imagined that the Guru is somebody who is far away and you know him from videos or books. After the first meditation, I heard that Mohanji was coming to my country and he would initiate people into Consciousness Kriya. I had no idea what it was but I felt that I should apply. So I did and got accepted in 2 days.

Tamara
Consciousness Kriya initiation

I was so happy to meet him and became his disciple. By that time, I had watched a lot of videos and read his blogs; every word was the truth that I felt in my heart. The first time I met him, he came into the room and came straight up to me and touched my arm. That meant everything to me, to be able to have a real, living Guru, to be in his aura, to sit in front of him and receive his blessing and to be initiated by him. After the initiation, I felt that I didn’t need anything else; I have received everything, he has given me everything I ever wanted. I was so thankful and nothing else mattered to me.

“Kriya is basically an intention for the highest. It is a gift given by great masters for contributing to the aspirations of mankind to realise his or her original form. A state of bliss!” – Mohanji

After the first meeting, the journey started. There were huge transformations, satsangs and retreats, a lot of ‘friends’ left me as a lot of people couldn’t understand what was happening with me; there were understandings and misunderstandings, fighting my inner wars, family issues, service and work… All was ok because I had his love.

However, one year ago I completely fell apart, I couldn’t finish university, I had no job and no place to stay. I felt stuck and without focus. After 3 days of 24 hours of non-stop crying, I somehow gathered myself to write to Mohanji about my situation and ask for guidance. He sent me to Belgrade. I stayed there for a year and worked at a Mohanji center. I had very low income and I was living off from the goodness of the M family; they welcomed and accepted me as their sister and always lent a helping hand.

While there, I started volunteering for the MYC – Mohanji Youth Club. They needed somebody to design a website and I volunteered to do it. I had no technical knowledge in designing websites but the moment I said that I will do it; I got a vision of how it should look. In one week of work, we had the website going. The people were happy with it and liked the design. For that one week, I felt wonderful, learning and working on the website. I never expected to enjoy it so much. After some time, a lady from the foundation offered me a job to design a website. I was so amazed; it was all Mohanji’s grace. He gave me a profession. Before that, I felt so lost and I wasn’t sure what I would do without work; I was into graphic design but I wasn’t sure how to start and what to do.

Today, this is my profession and I always wanted to work from home, so he also fulfilled that desire of mine. As somebody who started one year ago, clients are coming out of thin air, they are contacting me and I can feel the grace every time somebody asks me to work on a project, and I have a deep understanding that Mohanji is behind this. It’s all him. He does the work; he sends the people for our fulfillment and liberation. There are no words to express my gratitude to him. He has always been by my side and supported me and all the people who are connected to him. He is a bubble of love and grace.

I bow down before his holy feet with the deepest gratitude in my heart. Thank you, dearest Guruji, for everything.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 8 – “A state of Expanded Consciousness”

consciousness

In this 6th story of Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 8, we have a beautiful sharing by Ilina, who found that connecting to the Master helped her overcome a deep-seated emotional trauma in her life. Through the process of ignoring her mind’s negative chatter and surrendering her expectations, she had a wonderful experience which helped her momentarily see the underlying Consciousness in all creation. Read other inspiring stories from Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 8!

 By Ilina Vedran, Macedonia

At the age of 14, I faced a big trauma in my life, which left a deep emotional mark on me. That was the reason I started to explore spirituality. For a long time, I worked to overcome the trauma and thought that I could fully get over it. However, there was still one part of the experience that pulled me back whenever I faced certain situations in which my security was questioned.

After my retreat with Mohanji, I felt deep cleansing of emotions but underwent hits to my ego, which were unpleasant. At one moment, the situation calmed down. At that point, I thought it was all over, but unknown to me, it was just a preparation for a bigger test that was about to happen.

One day I woke up feeling anxious. I had a feeling as if there was a time bomb inside me that could explode at any moment. To diffuse the anxiety, I started to do meditations and tried breathing techniques, but nothing helped.  The feeling was so intense that it started to reflect on my relationship with my son. He started to become furious and expressed that anger onto me.  I became aware that there was something big being expressed, and that Mohanji was guiding me through the process. That evening I sat down to meditate and suddenly I realised the reason for the situation that I was in. It was the trauma from my childhood – my mother’s death, which I thought I had got over. I felt so heavy, I couldn’t breathe. There was an unbearable pain in my heart. I decided to text Mohanji.

Mohanji on emotions

The next morning, I saw His reply when I awoke. Mohanji’s message to me said that this issue had a long history and that it was being repeated over and over. He recommended me to get Mai-Tri treatment and to speak to Devi. After reading His message, I felt disappointed and my mind started to make up stories like “He can’t help me; that’s why He was sending me to Devi.” I took a conscious decision to ignore those thoughts and I did write to Devi. However, for whatever reasons, Devi did not reply. This, I felt, was another test of my faith. My mind kept coming up with doubts and negative thoughts. In one moment, my mind’s chatter said to forget Mohanji, but on the other side, deep inside me, I realised that my mind was feeding me illusions.

Mohanji on Oneness

I decided to turn off my phone and stop looking for answers. I sat down to meditate. During the meditation, I started asking myself: “Why am I alone?” Suddenly I felt intense energy, after which all the emotions were cleared, and what was left was a strong pain in my chest. I continued with my daily routine, but before going to bed, I again sat to meditate. Some intuitive force was guiding me through the meditation.

Then, all of a sudden, in my mind, my mother appeared in front of me. Many times I said to her, “You are free, go to the light,” but this time, something happened! I felt strong energy in my heart centre, and got a feeling as if something was taken away from there! Immediately, I fell asleep.

The next morning, I was feeling amazing peace! As I put my hand on my chest, I felt physical pain on the front of my chest, as though I had a bruise. However, I continued with my day without feeling any further pain. I was taking my child to a cinema, in a mall. As we were walking towards the mall, my awareness was different from how it had been before. After I dropped off my son, I decided to go shopping.

As I walked in the mall, I began feeling a lightness in my stomach centre, that rapidly spread over my whole body. Then, something unfamiliar started happening to me. I was aware of my body, but did not feel bound to it! I had a feeling that I was all over the mall. My mind pulled me to enter one shop, and I started to touch the clothes, but nothing that had a form, neither objects nor people attracted my attention. Everything was the same for me: insignificant! No material object could occupy my awareness.

Mohanji on concepts

At this point, my mind got confused, so I decided to leave the mall and started walking back home. On the way, I saw a white pigeon, which didn’t fly away when I came close. In the tradition that I was brought up in, a white pigeon is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. Deep inside me, I felt Mohanji’s consciousness and became aware that I was feeling so peaceful as never before. Everything that had happened before, came into my mind and it was crystal clear to me that I didn’t need any information from outside, because deep inside I knew the truth.  Mohanji just took my attention so that He could help me, to work on me, and in no moment did He leave me alone.

Thinking back, I understand that I had to drop my expectations and to surrender, in order for the change to take place. The scenario of Devi’s non-response was arranged for my own good. It is always thus, but our mind’s chatter takes us away from the truth. Mohanji, on a subtle level, continually brings us face to face us with the Truth. His consciousness is always with us because it is part of us. Since I met Him, I have stopped caring about the things that have a form. I have not tried to analyse who He is, because something was intuitively pulling me to Him. I felt His unconditional love, and I realised that I was feeling my own true Self. His love is awakening love within me, a deep love that exists behind the noise of the mind. His presence reminds me of the things that I forgot when I came into this world: my real I.

After this experience, the sense of being-ness is getting awakened in me every day. It is an unexplainable feeling of lightness and love.

As Mohanji says, “If it passes, it is just an experience, but if it stays, it is yours.”

Temptations and emotions do come up from time to time, but for me, they do not have a significant meaning any more. I know that behind all of them is the Consciousness that connects me to Mohanji. I am that Consciousness, we all are.

 

Thank You Mohanji for showing me where to look, in order to reach the joy of my being!
