The Guru’s protective umbrella

Mohanji

This testimonial by Manjiri Bhalerao reiterates Mohanji’s protection to people connected to Him at all times, whichever part of the world they are in. Enjoy the two narratives about Mohanji helping Manjiri in her hour of distress and making a major accident turn into a milder one with His grace.  

Guru’s protective umbrella at all times

By Manjiri Bhalerao, Canada

The following prayer conveys my sincere feelings for my Gurudev, Brahmarishi Mohanji.

Tvameva Mata Ch Pita Tvameva. (You are mother and father to me)

TvamevaBandhush-CaSakhaTvameva. (You are my only relative and friend)

TvamevaVidyaaDravinnamTvameva. (You are my wisdom and my wealth)

TvamevaSarvam Mam Deva Deva. (You are everything to me, my Lord)

I would like to share my experience of Mohanji’s grace and protection twice within a year. Both the times, my husband Mahesh was travelling and was away from home.

The first incident happened when Mohanji was in Brazil in April 2018. Mahesh was also travelling with Mohanji in Brazil and I was in Toronto with my kids.

In the Toronto Yoga Conference, where Mohanji Foundation Canada had a booth, I was going to volunteer in that booth. Just couple of days prior to this programme, I had a mishap at home that brought to me yet another incidence of how Mohanji was protecting me. On this day, I was to cook food for the kids and placed a pan on the stove. I poured oil into the pan and as the oil turned hot, before I knew what was happening, my left hand brushed against the handle of the pan and the pan toppled upside down. The entire hot oil in the pan splashed on my leg and foot. Out of the pain from hot oil and more so from the fear of impact on my ability to volunteer for the programme, I cried out to Mohanji! It was just so spontaneous to reach out to my Gurudev in my distress situation. While chanting “Jai Mohanji, Jai Mohanji” in my mind, I held my foot under water and then applied an ointment for burns on it. With the amount of hot oil that came on my feet, I would have surely got blisters. But to my amazement, I got no blisters. Just dark patches of burns in my foot. So the next day when I had to travel for the Yoga event, I was able to put on my shoes and could travel there and was able to volunteer as planned earlier. Needless to say, had the injury been more serious I would not have been able to put on shoes and travel to the location in an unusually cold April in Toronto. I realised how Mohanji took care of everything. A potential big mishap just ended with a minor incident and I was able to  accomplish my commitment. This incident was verified by Mohanji when Mahesh spoke to Him about it.

The second incident happened recently in January 2019. It was a usual cold winter afternoon in Toronto. Three devotees (Alpa, Parmeshji, and Geetaji) and I were returning from Mohanji Datta Tapovan Ashram, Amaranth after attending Sai Vrat Katha (story of Sai). It was the first month when we had started conducting this monthly ritual in the ashram. I was supposed to drop Alpa at her place in Brampton, and then head back home after dropping Geeta and Parmesh on the way in Scarborough. It was decided that before dropping Alpa, we would deliver Sai Vrat Katha prasad at a Sai devotees’ place in Brampton. As we were on our way, Alpa told me to drop her at her place and she would deliver the prasad herself as I was getting late. I was not familiar with the roads, so Alpa told me to change the lane and take a right turn. As I was about to do it, my car collided with another white car coming from behind. It happened so suddenly and the other car (which was also driven by a lady) halted several meters away. We were all dazed by the sudden impact. We got down from the car and inspected the damage. With Mohanji’s grace, my car was damaged minimally on the front right side. Nothing happened to the passengers sitting on the right side in my car and the other lady driver whose car was damaged was also surprisingly calm. Her car was damaged quite extensively on the left side, including damaged doors and mirrors.

M-family members Ketan and Manisha came to the location to help me with the formalities after the collision. Gauravji (whose house we were supposed to drop the prasad) also came twice to the location to talk to the lady and her husband (who came later). We were out in the cold standing for quite some time discussing the next steps, and after making a few calls to Mahesh in India (who was with Mohanji in Bangalore), we decided to go to the collision centre.

While I was still going through the formalities, I understood that It was Mohanji’s grace that we escaped unhurt with minimal damage to car. Not only this, Mohanji made sure that I was not alone during this incident. Alpa, Ketan, Manisha, Geeta, and Parmesh were all with me till we finished the formalities, which took a couple of hours after the collision. Everyone was tired after a long day (ashram vrat pooja and the collision). Manisha promptly went and bought hot coffee for all of us and we all departed. They also called me later to make sure I had reached home safely. As I thought of this accident, I couldn’t thank Mohanji enough for protecting us, looking after us and comforting us.

When Mahesh recounted this incident to Mohanji in India, before he could say anything, Mohanji said He knew what had happened and asked Mahesh what he wanted to say. He had taken care of everything. This incident taught me to be more mindful and careful in the future, though Guru’s protection is always there.

My heart is full of immense gratitude to my Guru Mohanji, for being with us and protecting us at all times. Words are not enough to express my gratitude and writing a testimonial is one of the ways where I can express my gratitude to Him. When He says, “I am with you,” He makes sure we are under His protective shield (kavach) and saves us from any storm in our lives. Only by living His teachings can we fully express our gratitude. My salutations (koti koti pranaams) to my Guru Mohanji and the entire Guru Mandala for showering us with grace and blessings. My prostrations (sashtanga namaskar) and deepest gratitude for everything ‘O Gurudev!’

I am truly humbled, grateful beyond words O Gurudev, Oh Mohanji! (Baba), THANK YOU so much for EVERYTHING, a million times.

 Bless us all to live our lives with your teachings.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – “Conscious Dancing – A stairway to higher consciousness”

Mohanji always assures us of His presence and guidance in various ways both physically and astrally! His omnipresence can be felt through dreams, in visions, during meditations and chanting, while in the midst of a chore or an activity, during conscious walking and in almost all aspects of our lives. Shyama Jeyaseelan had a divine vision of Mohanji during Conscious Dancing. Enjoy reading about this beautiful dance and rest assured in the knowledge that He is always walking with us.

Conscious Dancing – A stairway to higher consciousness

by Shyama Jeyaseelan

Mohanji’s visit to UK in August 2018 was 12 days long, but the days flew by so quickly that it felt like 12 minutes! Every moment in Mohanji’s physical presence was truly blissful. Words cannot begin to describe how precious and cherished these days have been. Cooking some of the meals for Mohanji, doing Paada puja, having Him visit our home and seeing Him sing are some of the many joyous moments I was blessed with. Having our Deviji and sweet little Mila with us was so wonderful too and I would like to share something that happened during Conscious Dancing with Deviji at the retreat.

Devi

Conscious Dancing with Deviji is always a wonderful experience as we all know. On the day that we had Conscious Dancing, I was enjoying the music and the movements while focusing on each chakra as Deviji was instructing. As we were focusing on the spine at one point, I remembered Mohanji saying focusing on the spine helps us connect to the higher consciousness.

At that moment I had a beautiful image come to my mind. I saw a long flight of stairs where my spine was, wide at the bottom (base of the spine) and becoming narrower towards the top (top of the head), leading to a small arched doorway. Half way up the stairs, I see Mohanji climbing in orange and white robes, His left arm extended and holding my right hand. Mohanji was looking over His left shoulder at me as I was also climbing the stairs, one or two steps behind Him.

Source: Google images

That image, so full of grace and unconditional love was a beautiful assurance for me that my beloved Guru is holding my hand every step of the way to the destination this soul desires. I’m truly humbled and filled with endless gratitude to Mohanji and Deviji. Thank you so much for your presence in our lives.

“When you sit down quietly, just close your eyes and feel the spine. Automatically your consciousness, your awareness will shift to the third eye, the space between the eyebrows. This is the proof. We are going beyond the normal senses to the higher dimension. Third eye is the higher dimension, it is the pathway to the higher dimension.” Mohanji

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – “Mohanji – The Incarnation of Compassion”

mohanji answers

This story  in Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 highlights what Mohanji means  about presence without presence! He is ever present with us, taking care of us irrespective of our awareness. Enjoy this beautiful narration about how Nirupma recognised His presence in her life!

Please read other stories from Mohanji Satcharita Chapter 7!

“Mohanji – The Compassion Incarnate”

by Nirupma Chowdhary

Mohanji’s presence in my life is indescribable! Each time I meet Him,  He says,

“Keep doing your work. I am with you”

His words motivate me to keep going.

 

During a recent visit to the UK, I developed severe pain in my left leg. I was not sure if it was because of a Vitamin D deficiency or my rheumatoid arthritis that had made a comeback. My blood tests did not reveal anything problematic.

I met Mohanji at the Rishikesh Retreat. Whenever I met Him, He would ask me to sit on the chair, rather than on the floor as I would be uncomfortable. I wondered why He never asked about my leg or the limp in it. As I read testimonials of many who have recovered from various illnesses,  I would think about myself and also wonder why I did not experience any relief.

mohanji homa

I work at Mohanji School of Supplementary Education for underprivileged children at Jammu. In time, my pain became worse, even walking around was difficult. It was becoming impossible to go to school. I tried to ease my pain and improve my mobility using compression socks. My husband supported me immensely by dropping and picking me up from school.

I am also a Mai-tri practitioner. While performing healing for others, my leg would hurt and it was quite ironical that I was performing healing for others, while in pain! I attributed my pain to my karma and kept going through life.

On the night of January 7th, I saw Mohanji on a chair, like a doctor, examining my leg. I was lying on a bed and appeared to be in great pain. After some time, He asked me to do yoga and added that I would be well.  As instructed, I resumed yoga and in just a few days I became free of pain! Life was normal again.

What does it mean to be Mohanji?

Mohanji was visiting Jammu and one day after a satsang, we were discussing issues relating to the school. As we were leaving, Father smilingly reminded me that I wished  to say something to Him. It was true! I told Him that my leg was well after He examined it and that I had no pain now! He said, “Go tell Chachi Revaji. She keeps complaining that I do not come to Jammu. But I am always there for all of you. I may not be here physically, but am here astrally.”

Read this  beautiful poem on Mohanji!

Blessed are we to be part of the Mohanji family. My koti koti pranaams to my Guru, who takes care of our physical and our spiritual needs!

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – “Faith is the Key”

mohanji CK

by Olivera Miškić

In this series of Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7, we bring to you a powerful testimonial from the Bosnian Pyramids (2018) by Olivera Miškić.  The Bosnian Pyramids is a powerful energy center where she understood and experienced the true meaning of Faith in a Master. Just by surrendering her doubts and fears to Mohanji, she not  only fulfilled her wish of going to the Pyramids for the Kriya Intensive programme, she also fulfilled her duties towards a close relative.

Please read other testimonials from Chapter 7 of Mohanji Satcharita. 

Mohanji

I had a deep call from within to go for a  Kriya Intensive programme, in particular to Visoko. I only had a chance to feel the energy of that place during an earlier visit. What a powerful place! How powerful it must be in Mohanji’s presence! I applied immediately, as soon as it was announced and I got to know of it.

However, as life would have it, unexpected things happened. The thing that was happening in my life was extremely painful, or at least my mind wanted to perceive it that way.

Long before the retreat, I found out my aunt was terminally ill from a fast-progressing lung cancer. As the time of the retreat approached, her condition was getting worse and worse. Just before the retreat, she became bedridden. That meant she needed help 24 hours a day because she couldn’t sit or get up from the wheelchair on her own.

I had only one week to find a trustworthy person who would sleep in her house, since she lived alone. Among the close relatives, I was the only one she had.

I was hectically trying to find a solution and I would start panicking with the thought  of leaving her alone and travelling to another country for 5 days.  The question if I should go or stay was burning in my head. I found a caretaker, but she left us after a few days.

The pressure in my head was getting bigger and bigger. The main question I asked myself was: “Am I a spiritual person? Why am I going to this retreat? What is real spirituality –  when you help someone who is helpless or you wish  for one more answer, one more experience to satiate the hunger and add another piece of puzzle to your spiritual journey?”

In the end, not being able to take the decision on my own, I sat one evening looking at Mohanji’s photo and completely surrendering to Him, I said quietly: “You lead me, you know better than me! Let thy will be done.”

I found a caretaker, arranged everything with my aunt’s neighbours and set off to Visoko. I was still really nervous during the journey. My brain kept questioning if my actions were right. What if they call me to say she died and I wasn’t there with her in her last moments? I was praying she would stay alive and not die while none of her close family were around, since I knew that was her last wish.

The Kriya Intensive programme started with a satsang with Mohanji who immediately asked us: “Why are you here?” I couldn’t believe it! That was the exact question I asked myself. I had goosebumps.

mohanji and olivera

As the next day arrived, I started relaxing slowly through Kriya. I surrendered to it completely. Those were really powerful group meditations. I would sometimes feel tears spontaneously flowing down my face while we were meditating. We were lucky to do Kriya in various energy spots, as well as at the Pyramids of the Sun and of Love. Each was different. As the days were passing, I was surrendering more and more. I felt the strong Yang energy of the Pyramid of the Sun, which expelled immense anger from me. I was becoming more and more aware that I was supposed to be at that place in Visoko with the Master.

Everything culminated with the one-hour meditation in the tunnels, a hidden place where no tourist had yet set a foot. We remained in complete darkness and an image from a past life flashed before my eyes. I knew it was true. At that moment, everything became clear. I understood why I kept going through this life with a certain conviction which was only doing me harm. That revelation came peacefully, with no emotions, crystal clear. This meditation was crowned with a Shaktipat in the tunnels, which was so powerful that it seemed to me I was under its influence, in complete peace, for the rest of the retreat. The fears disappeared. I simply knew that things were going exactly the way they should and my aunt would welcome me alive. I knew I had to be there in Visoko, at the Pyramids with Mohanji, and went back to Belgrade more stable, rooted in the faith in myself and in my Guru, being able to truly help her and bring a bit of light into the last days of her life. That’s how it was. Despite the painful end of her life, I said goodbye to her in peace, with prayers and mantras, fulfilling her last wishes.

shaktipat

Now that I’m writing this, my aunt is no longer in this earthly dimension, but I know with certainty, deeply rooted in peace, that I was supposed to be at the Bosnian Pyramids then, in May 2018. It was a big test of faith for me and that’s why my whole being was urging me to go to that powerful place despite all the outer obstacles, and experience a huge transformation with the strong guidance from my beloved Guru, Mohanji. Now I know that everything is possible in His presence, and that everything is happening just the way it should.

At this retreat, I truly experienced and felt in my own body the truth Mohanji keeps repeating: “Faith is the key.” I realized faith is the key which unmistakably leads us to discover not what we think we are, but who we truly are.

With deep gratitude, I deeply bow in front of Your feet.

Walking the Talk

Awakening

By Nameshri Chetty

Jai Mohanji!

The grace factor flows through so effortlessly if we allow ourselves to feel and see beyond the mind.

Our lives are filled with lots of life lessons, but along with that are the most divine experiences of the Self. I now see, feel and learn about life in ways that I (the Nameshri before meeting Mohanji) would never have fathomed. It has only been through the grace of Mohanji that I have come to start to understand or rather am starting to see the magic.

I write this as my proof that Truth is Real! 

As many of you know, I have been very active in the Mohanji family for about 6+ years now and not once has Mohanji’s grace not been evident. All along, there has been one underlying trait that shows up for all those who are with Him. He truly cares and loves without limitations.

Leading up to mid-2018, my karmic experiences seemed to be on hyper-drive! Gosh, I am so serious; it’s not funny but I pulled through, leaving me with some wear and tear. Just to fill you in, my son had left to live on his own; my daughter left with her dad (taking my dogs); my helper of 17 years passed away and I sold my home, packed up a home of 15 years all by myself, all in the space of 6 months.

Many a time we see our lives unravelling before us and think “Oh my God, why is this happening, why me and what now,” but little do we understand or see the grace in those experiences. All that happens is perfectly coordinated so that we can be the best version of ourselves, always giving us opportunities to rise above and succeed.

During this time and leading up to these events, Mohanji advised me to come to India. Once all my responsibilities were complete, I packed two suitcases and left for India. Please note I had no idea where I would be staying or what I was going to do there. It was the first time I flew abroad alone. My family in Durban questioned me about where I was going to stay and what I would be doing and all I said was that it did not matter (as I knew Mohanji would not put me in a mud hut.

As I took off, en route to India, I had no expectations but had a sense of courage that this was a new journey. I was received so lovingly at the Bangalore ashram. The first few days,  okay honestly, the first week, I was a zombie,   I just ate and slept, I felt as if I was out of my body. In truth, if you had seen me then, your jaw would have dropped.  As the days went on, Mohanji advised me to rest, have no agenda and just be. He advised me not to travel or do anything that needed effort but rather to be in that sacred space. I had completely disengaged from my life in South Africa (besides my children). I was totally off the grid, as they say. Mohanji opened His home to me so that I could heal and rest. He did not ask me for anything in return and neither did any of the others; they just showered me with love. As the days went by, I began to find my flow in the house, helped out and began to be myself again.  Life seemed to go on, everything had total transparency and everyone had respect for all as there seemed to be an understanding of a family (seeing that by grace you are there). I felt at ease with a sense of peace. Even when He was not physically there, I felt no pressure to deliver (which is how we all live our lives each and every moment). There was just an abundance of compassion, love and care shown. He knew I needed a place of safety during my transition period – hence India. Mohanji had made sure that I was comfortable at any given time. Mohanji had mentioned many a time about doing things that were karmically correct. On asking what this meant, He said, “Where your mind is at ease” (I was so accustomed to saying yes even when I did not approve). He allowed me to be vulnerable and speak my Truth without judgement as I was going through different phases of life. All that I knew had once again been ripped out from under my feet; I felt totally devastated. Mohanji filled my space with understanding of my situation, empowering me to accept my situation without victim hood. I cried for many days, but that too ceased only to be replaced with laughter as Mohanji’s presence dimmed the sadness and filled it up with hope. Mohanji showed total respect for my space and my priorities. Not once was I made to feel like I was not capable or insignificant. The energy at the ashram was something that I had never experienced; there is a sense of immense gratitude and security when entering. Imagine after a long trip, having carried a heavy backpack, you reach your resting point where you can remove your baggage – “Ahhh! What a weight off your shoulders!” One can feel and sense Masters and beings around. I felt totally in the lap of the Divine, I had a knowing that all was taken care of for my highest good. I lived there without any questions, expectations or pressure; only a feeling of pure acceptance. This was from Mohanji as well as the other devotees who came and went from the ashram. None of them pried, questioned or bothered me, they allowed me to be. They went out of their way to make my stay comfortable in India seeing that I was a foreigner, starting from food, shopping, entertainment, travel; in fact, it was a collaboration of all to assist me. I actually saw this trait in each individual where people got together to help each other out to get stuff done without any complaint. An example: I needed medicines for my mom who had suffered a stroke. The Mohanji family rallied together from getting a prescription to contacting a pharmacist to get it for me (definitely Mohanji’s example). Mohanji Himself called to enquire about a space at a clinic for me (now really who in today’s world would take time out to do that.) I had such profound experiences during my stay but that will be shared later.

mohanji expression

Those who know Him have heard Him say, “I take full responsibility for my people, I will not let you fall, I will not leave your hand, I walk with you. THIS IS ALL TRUE. Mohanji is always there! 

In today’s world, it is very hard to find an individual who epitomizes TRUTH. What I mean is –

“MOHANJI WALKS THE TALK.”

Mohanji 1

In my small capacity, I am proof that He is unconditional beyond measure. In these times that we are living in, many a good deed goes under scrutiny, with lots of frills added but in truth it’s just being good. It took me some time to write this as feelings of grace cannot be put into words, but in saying that, I know that those reading will feel through the words. Before going to India, my faith was tested in many ways (there was lots of noise all around me and I could not feel my Truth).  I was totally depleted mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually (which Mohanji knew about), but this did not deter Him from taking care of me. Through this period of my life, I saw how many life times of karmic bindings were dissolved and how He gently made sure each individual was safe , so we can go on to our next chapter. I saw how He dissolved attachments to relationships, ideas, concepts and judgements; so that I could be free to BE ME (as He knew that I was never free). To many it would be, “Oh my gosh! How sad,” but for me, I say, “Thank you, Mohanji.” He made sure my son was working and independent; my daughter was safe, and my responsibilities dissolved; only for me to be free. Acceptance of my current space without any baggage – be it shame, regret, blame or guilt is where I am. Basically, I have no agenda but just to be! HOW AWESOME! I am still on the mend like many of us but I am definitely a lot stronger than before I went to India. I have always been a very strong individual but this life lesson literally brought me to my knees and the only person to pick me up was Mohanji!

Mere Mahadev (my Lord Shiva), I surrender graciously and humbly at Your feet as You are the beginning and end of all that is and is not.

“I glide on the breath of Your grace”

(Please note that sharing MY JOURNEY has left me vulnerable (open for anything) but the bigger picture is that if I can inspire/help or make a difference in someone else’s life, why not. Only then am I living my Guru’s teachings.)

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – ” A story of grace”

Mohanji

Divine grace seems to be the theme for the month. In our third story of Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7, Sabyasachi Rath shares with us an experience that appears as a mere coincidence but is actually preordained. Mohanji, in His most casual way fulfills the desires of His devotees and safeguards them too!

Please read other stories of Mohanji Satcharita Chapter 7!

By Sabyasachi Rath

I had an unplanned visit to my dad in Cuttack who has not been keeping well. (On a side note, after a ‘box’ healing by a benevolent Mai-Tri practitioner in Virginia, his haemoglobin levels had come to near normal and my mom’s arthritis pain had receded significantly.)

I booked my tickets from Washington-Bhubaneswar (BBSR) via Delhi on the venerable Air India from Feb 15th-23rd with a faint ‘back of the mind’ realization that Mohanji’s birthday was to be celebrated in Delhi on the 23rd and I would not be able to make it due the flight schedule. The same faint ‘back of the mind’ realization had also carried a distant desire with it to hopefully attend the birthday. I had a great trip and spent quality time with my parents for a week.

On Feb 22nd, I received an email from Air India stating that my flight from BBSR to Delhi was delayed by an hour.

On Feb 23rd, with characteristic tardiness, I realized that the time to change flights was remarkably short (30 mins) and I would not be able to catch the flight to Washington. I called Air India’s customer service and had to gently guide them to give me an earlier flight. Lo and behold, they put me on a flight that arrived in Delhi at 4.20 pm. A beautiful faint hope arose in my heart that maybe I could go and attend the birthday…which was from 2-7 pm.

I arrived at BBSR airport at 1 pm to board my flight and after the check-in process, realized that they had checked me in, along with my luggage, all the way to Washington. This meant that I would not be able to get out in Delhi.

On reaching Delhi airport, I said to myself, to heck with the rules, I will go and be a part of the birthday celebrations. I exited myself through the domestic checkout and immigration. Surprisingly, nobody complained, my luggage was still at the airport and I was out in the city! I took a cab to the Bamyan hotel and blissfully deposited myself in the hall just before the satsang began. I soaked myself in divine bliss (to whatever extent divine bliss could soak me) and enjoyed every moment with Mohanji, touched His feet, wished Him happy birthday, got a hug – life is great!

Please listen to Mohanji’s talk on His birthday.

Towards the end of the event, through a casual ‘coincidence,’ two beautiful and amazing ladies gave me a ride back to the same terminal from where I was supposed to leave for Washington. Their happy chatter kept me (and the cab driver) entertained through the trip :).

I arrived at the airport and went through the immigration and check-in process like a charm; again surprisingly, nobody had any questions and I was inside.

The boarding started at 12.45 am. When my card was scanned, it set off an alarm. One grim lady from immigration/customs came running to me, took my passport and admonished me in strict terms for going out of the airport when I was checked-in internationally, that I couldn’t go through immigration twice on the same day and threatened to ‘unload’ me from the flight. I put on my most apologetic face and kept quiet. She then conferred with the venerable crew from Air India, who remarkably said, they had no issues, since I was cleared by immigration! This wasn’t sufficient for the immigration lady, who then called in her boss. He came running in 5 minutes and sufficiently admonished me for accomplishing the improbable. I apologized for not being aware of the rules. She then called his boss, who after listening and debating whether to ‘unload’ me or not, decided that if the airline was agreeable, he would allow me to go on the flight. I was cleared (along with my luggage) to go. Yoo hoo!

“What is Grace? What has it got to do with life?

Simple answer! What has an umbrella got to do with rain! An umbrella does not stop the rain but prevents you from getting drenched.”

Check out this talk by Mohanji on Grace!

I took the flight and landed in Washington DC without any problems.

The grace that accompanied me through this trip has been immeasurable and I shall forever be grateful.

Mohanji – The cradle of compassion

Mohanji on experience

By Surya Sujan  (as narrated to the Testimonials Team)

In the canvas of life, nothing is a coincidence. Every event is meticulously planned and painted for the completion of this journey. Most of us are able to surmount the difficulties and move on. But are we really doing anything? Is there an unseen hand that guides and paves the way for smoother sailing? These questions can sometimes be answered in retrospect when there is an ‘Ah-ha’ moment and we realise the Supreme Energy has been at work backing us all the way.

In this blog, which was narrated to the testimonials team, Surya Sujan explains how she became aware of the protection that is being bestowed on her as she surmounts every incident in her life, one step at a time. What keeps her going is the faith and deep surrender that she has for her Guru Mohanji and her unconditional love for Shirdi Sai Baba.

As she narrated each incident, it was very clear that the Master had cleared the path beautifully and eased her stress, guiding her to the right person at the right time. All that she had to do was to follow the guidance and go with the flow. This has reduced her difficulties to such an extent that she now has the confidence to continue on with life’s battles.

There were two major events in Surya’s life that enhanced her faith in her Guru Mohanji and Sai Baba.

 

Mohanji’s Grace flowing into life

On the 23rd of December 2018, in Kannur, Kerala, Surya Sujan connected with her friend and classmate Mohanji after 38 years, by the grace of Sai Baba. She feels that her gratitude to Mohanji cannot be expressed in words as He has done so much for her family. By His grace, her son completed his graduation recently, passing all his subjects. Last year, his grade point in the third semester was 1.42 while the cut-off point was 1.50. Although he sent the papers for revaluation, due to bad luck, the results were not published. In November 2018, he wrote his exam again for two subjects. At the time of the results, the results appeared locked with a comment showing that it was being withheld.

In the meantime, on the same day of the results, Surya was praying and chanting the Mohanji Gayatri for her husband who had to get a biopsy done for a liver tumour. As she reached the hospital, her son asked her to pray for his exam results as he was going to the University to check the results. She simply closed her eyes and touched the photo of Mohanji who had by then  become more than her classmate and friend, her very own Baba (Sai Baba) in physical form. Within a short time, she received a call from her son with the news that he had passed. With Mohanji’s blessings, her son is a graduate now. 

The second incident which has been an eye-opener is the struggle that she and her husband have undergone with his (Sujan’s) illness.

Surya with Mohanji

For the past four years, her husband Sujan, has been suffering from liver cirrhosis and vomiting blood. Ever since she met Mohanji, she and her husband are wearing a green thread given by Mohanji as a protection. The way the events unfolded since she met her schoolmate Mohanji is indeed astounding.

Sai Baba’s guidance

During her narration through the audio message, Surya strongly stated that it was Sai Baba who sent her to Mohanji to help her face the ordeals that she was undergoing. This was exactly the time when Sujan had a recurrence of vomiting blood after nearly 3.5 years. With Mohanji’s blessings and Mai-Tri sessions from Deviji, Subhasree and Barbara, they commenced a round of tests at a hospital and she was confident that things would work in their favour.

Throughout this period (the last 4 months), Sai Baba has spoken to her telepathically to seek guidance from Mohanji. She surrendered completely to Mohanji and through Him to Sai Baba.

Mohanji’s divine intervention

The doctors after a preliminary test in December 2018, found lesions in Sujan’s liver that were carcinogenic. Some tests such as microwave ablations and skin ablations were recommended which could have been highly risky. After discussing and on the advice of Mohanji, Surya sought a second opinion at NVR cancer centre in Calicut for cirrhosis. Looking at Sujan’s current condition, a famous specialist advised against going through the above mentioned tests. He recommended a liver clinic which was incidentally happening the very next day and housed all the specialists required to assess, confirm and advise on her husband’s condition.

Surya believes that it was only through Mohanji’s grace that this miracle happened. Yes, it was a miracle that she came to know of such a rare clinic happening where all required doctors and technicians were available – a radiologist, an oncologist and a pathologist, all under the same roof at the same time! The miracles continued from then on. Everything seemed to work in their favour. The radiologist at the clinic happened to be the brother of Surya’s friend. Things moved quickly and the radiologist considering the large bloated stomach of Sujan felt that the previously advised therapies would not work for him. The liver oncologist suggested a highly specialised treatment called SGR, in which only the diseased cell would be given radiation (instead of the whole liver, which would have affected some healthy cells too!) This positive information was a blessing because there were large areas in the liver that were clear and functioning normally.

The miracle of finding all the right specialists in such a short time, getting the correct diagnosis, receiving advice on the optimum treatment and the immediate commencement of the treatment were all beyond Sujan’s and Surya’s hopes and expectations!

The doctors, who were no less than divine instruments, commenced the treatment by emptying the liver fluid and an IV albumin injection containing 20 ml of albumin was administered for an hour. The doctors had this plan ready for action – they would map the normal cells and the tumours and then the therapy would be done for the diseased cells for 5 days.

Mohanji’s divine energy 

Surya remembered that just a week prior to their visit to this clinic, Mohanji had told Surya that her husband’s liver had to be diluted and that He was trying His best to dilute it. The tests and treatment that was happening proved that Mohanji had indeed done His job! The liver certainly was diluted and this intervention had helped the oncologist find many areas clear in the liver and the specialised treatment could be commenced.

Divine communications

Once the connection with Mohanji was established, all that Surya had to do was think of Mohanji. Whenever she thought of Mohanji, a communication would happen with Mohanji, sometimes even through a WhatsApp message, Mohanji would enquire, “Surya, do you want to talk to me?” A strong telepathic divine connection was certainly established with Mohanji. She believes that Sai Baba speaks to her through Mohanji.

Surya says, “I feel some power is always with me. Whatever happens will happen. All of you are praying for me and so my pranaams at the lotus feet of Baba and Mohanji. All this is coming through Mohanji and His divinity is spreading all over the world.”

Mohanji – The incarnation of unconditional compassion 

With a voice choked with emotions and her heart filled with gratitude, Surya continued with her narration. Once she asked Mohanji about how she should offer Guru dakshina to Him as He is now her Guru. Mohanji replied,

“When you are helping the helpless – you are offering to me.”

Surya says, it is Baba’s blessings with her in the form of the shield of protection from Mohanji to her and her entire family, which has made her so strong that she is no more stressed about any obstacles and issues that come up from time to time. She feels, on the path of karma, her Guru, her eternal friend Mohanji is carrying her through in a comforting embrace. She is walking a path full of thorns, but it feels so smooth as if the path is filled with petals.

Yes, it’s so true that Mohanji’s unconditional love and His grace is being the cradle of compassion for Surya and her family.

Surya 2
Not just Surya and her family, Mohanji is helping each and every one of us in uncountable ways irrespective of our awareness in a situation.

This story of Surya Sujan reminds us of the following:

• Many of us have been divinely guided to Mohanji to be our Guru.
• Mohanji in His love and compassion walks ahead of us removing various obstacles to ease our journey as  much as possible.
• He helps us shed our karmic baggage to a large extent
• He wipes our tears and shields us from various perils
• He sets us on the path of liberation encouraging us to help the helpless

We join Surya and Sujan in expressing our eternal love and gratitude to Mohanji for being the Krishna for us, the eternal friend and the eternal Guru!
