Lessons living with Mohanji – Day 3

Day 3 Lesson – Flexibility

by Christopher Greenwood

I share today a continuous lesson of living with Mohanji, a lesson on being flexible in all situations and on breaking comfort zones. Working with Mohanji is extremely dynamic, and activities can change daily, if not hourly. I have had to develop the ability to be flexible and move at very short notice, and this has given me practical experiences on the importance of being flexible.

Have a great day ahead.

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re doing well. My name is Christopher. In these short audio recordings, I’m sharing some of my experiences, stories, and lessons of living with Mohanji. 

Today, I wanted to talk about flexibility because flexibility has been incredibly essential in living and working with Mohanji. This is because the nature of the work, especially with my role of looking after the office is such that the activities are extremely dynamic. We have a macro-picture view of all of the platforms that Mohanji has founded, ranging from the Mohanji Foundation itself to the World Consciousness Alliance and to Early Birds Club. On the other hand, there are Mohanji’s personal activities and my tasks of managing his time, the interviews, the satsangs, and all similar types of activities.

So, it’s extremely dynamic; no two days are alike. Whilst we make a broad structure of a daily plan when we meet, talk and catch up on topics, it can change at a moment’s notice. So, flexibility is crucial. Something that Mohanji told me at the start when I first arrived here was reminding me that this is the path of Shiva. And what does that mean? Essentially, it means that when you’re making a commitment, or at least have an aspiration, to reach the state of Shiva, reaching there from where I am now, means total annihilation, hard-core destruction of patterns, habits, comfort zones, and identifications. When I look back, I feel I really benefited from many circumstances in which it was really tough and difficult, where I had to really push through some resistance to move forward and break comfort zones. But at the time, it was quite a challenge. One of these situations is related to making an audio recording like this. Maybe six months ago, I would have never done something like this, I wouldn’t have had the confidence. The same goes for making the video recordings which I was putting out about certain topics. And what I realise now, living with Mohanji in quite close proximity, is that whilst it’s tough, there are more opportunities presented to break through your comfort zones. 

Also, Mohanji doesn’t really ask for anything; he is just there. He’s available as a reflection of what you need to progress on; on your journey or what I need to progress on, on my journey. So I can now see a pattern, or maybe a commonality in that all the tasks that I’ve been involved in. It has helped move me through a comfort zone, a habit or a pattern that I’ve had. And now looking back on them, I’m extremely grateful for them. Because this comes with such care and consideration from Mohanji too, as he said to me as well, it’s not his job to make anybody crumble or make anybody break. No. For him, his goal is to take people to the highest. But achieving that requires moving out of our comfort zones, moving out of our habits, moving out of our patterns. And so, when he gives us something, he always sees, as I understand now, the potential for the person or the person’s capacity.

So, I’ll give an example: when I was making the podcast for the first time, this was completely new. I had an interest in it, but I had no idea how to edit audio. So, it required researching the podcast platform, finding the best one, learning to edit audios, practising, watching lots of YouTube videos, lots of trials and errors, until I perfected it. And at the time, when I first started, I was still employed full time, too. It took a lot of time to edit these audios, which created quite a bit of stress for me. But soon I became comfortable with it. I could manage it. And I was happy. As soon as that happened, I spoke with Mohanji, and he said: “You know what, I think people like the podcast, but I think it’d be better if we start making daily podcasts now.” My first reaction was, ‘Oh my God, how am I going to do this? This is just going to be impossible. I don’t need to just learn audio editing; now, I have to increase the workload by about four times. It is already taking me two or three hours just to do one. How am I going to do it?’ 

So, it was uncomfortable. But when I look back, the lesson he was giving me or the opportunity for a practical lesson was being flexible. And more often than not, when Mohanji gives me or anybody else in the organisation a task, he’s actually looking for an outcome, which doesn’t necessarily mean that I need to do that task all by myself, or that someone else needs to do it all by themselves. They just take the responsibility to make it happen. And this has been great learning because what I quickly realised is the need for building a team, to bring people in. And the flexibility actually comes in finding the opportunities, the avenues, and the ways to make something happen. That’s what being flexible is in that context. 

So this is what I want to share today. And to give another example as well: I have been looking after the recording equipment for all the satsangs. So, the video, the camera, all the lights, because Ananth is doing some training at the moment, and he’s not here. I had to learn how to do that too. And yesterday was a big day; it was Diwali. So, I wanted to make sure that everything worked well. And I felt quite a lot of pressure because I knew a lot of people were waiting for the satsang. I planned the day to give myself enough time, it was quite leisurely, I had some tea in between, and that type of thing. And I thought, ‘I’ve got this sorted, I’ve got it nailed’. And then I got a phone call, maybe at lunchtime, from Ami in South Africa, with a great opportunity actually, I can’t deny that, for Mohanji to speak on South African news TV. This is great, that’s a fantastic reach, and all that was required was a short Diwali message recording, just to be recorded, edited, and sent to her news team. I think I had about two hours to do that. Normally, that would have sent me into a panic six months ago. ‘How am I going to fit this in, I’ve got a satsang coming up, I’m trying to prepare for this, there’s no way I can do this’. But, I realised that this is now what needs to be done in the time available. That’s doing what we have to do, rather than what we’d like to do; noticing as well that there’s a freedom in that too. So, that recording went out and got broadcast on time to all the people in South Africa. So it worked out well. 

It’s only through having the approach of flexibility that that was able to happen for me. Both in the earlier days and especially now living with Mohanji, the destruction of these comfort zones and patterns, being flexible, can be equated to sitting next to a fire, essentially. Because opportunities are provided for the transformation. And that’s what Mohanji is giving us. All of us really have the opportunity to transform into something higher. And so, when we’re sat next to the fire, there are, I think, two options: we either transform, or we get burned and run away.

I hope this account was useful and insightful for you. 

This idea of flexibility brings into our life the lesson that with life there are all situations that we’re faced with; but if we approach them with an attitude of acceptance and flexibility, we can find a way, we can navigate through them successfully. We can understand our capacity; we can understand what we can do. We can understand if we need some assistance, and we can flow with life much more easily.

Thank you for listening, and I hope you have a great day ahead.

My experience with Guru Raksha Homa and Intuition

by Bhumika, Canada

I wanted to take this beautiful opportunity to share my experience of the Guru Raksha Homa. I have read testimonials about it and had contacted an Acharya in June about the same, but there wasn’t any inclination in me or instinct to get it done. I just felt that I have the protection and blessings and don’t need to do this. It was also shared with me that the Homa not only helps the individual but also helps to cleanse the entire family lineage. It seemed alien to me. Since I didn’t understand, I didn’t think of it much and left it at that.

I have experienced that when Mohanji needs to get something done, he will arrange for it, and execute it beautifully. On Monday, August 17, 2020, the primary announcement was made about celebrations over the weekend (Ganesh Chaturthi, Sreepad Srivallabh Jayanthi, and second Anniversary of Datta Tapovan Ashram). That same day in the morning during meditation, the word ‘Homa’ flashed into my head, out of the blue. By now, I am getting a little familiar with the variety and beautiful ways Mohanji communicates and reaches out to his devotees. So, I contacted the team at Datta Tapovan Ashram in Toronto and received a confirmation on Wednesday that the Guru Raksha Homa was scheduled for Sunday. I wouldn’t have missed this opportunity.

On Sunday, August 23, I read Mohanji’s blog on Telegram, where he shared about his beautiful daughter Ammu. It was Ammu’s 20th death anniversary. After doing the kakad aarti, I spoke with Mohanji (his picture) and felt his pain as mine. He knows everything that conspires so he may not have needed any comforting, but I still attempted to comfort him. I did feel the pain, but I was able to focus on his message that something beautiful came out of it, Ammucare happened, and now it’s globally supporting so many human beings in various ways and fulfilling the mission.

It was time for the Homa and other scheduled events for that day, and I was able to participate in the events with ease without getting worked up. In the night, I heard Mohanji’s Podcast – “In memory of Ammu- Loss transformed into something positive.” Something shifted within me, listening to Mohanji’s words and his voice. Contrary to how I was able to see through and focus on the bigger picture, in the night listening to him, I couldn’t focus on that. I felt a deep pain within.

I was caught with Mohanji’s comments and details shared about the last day he saw Ammu alive. He shared minute details about that day, Ammu’s wet kiss on his cheeks, it felt as if it was just yesterday. And the circumstances described by Mohanji that he had to leave and Ammu was crying, as flights and plans were scheduled and needed to be executed; that’s where I was stuck, I wasn’t able to see past it.

I realized that my emotions were running high and combined with fear, it was picking momentum and turning into something nasty. I have a toddler who had had a difficult birth and continues to struggle with health and immunity to the extent that he had to be incubated when he was not even a year old and I didn’t know whether he would survive.

Seeing him go through so much, I guess there must have been a fear that was rooted deep within me. I couldn’t take it anymore. I had an intuition to call Bhavani, Mohanji’s Acharya from the USA. Bhavani was very generous and kind to unconditionally give her precious time away from her family and kids. I am so grateful to her for that day. I was heading to a very dark place, I was tipping over a cliff and falling, and Mohanji held my hand by working through Bhavani.

I started sharing details with Bhavani and also mentioned the Guru Raksha Homa. From her experience and listening to my history, she tried to convince me that this is all part of cleansing. She said, “You may have had a deep-rooted fear of losing a child, and it could be that you may have had this experience in your previous lives. With the Homa, it’s coming to the surface and cleansing is happening from your system.” She was really kind to me and very generous to share details from her life. It is any parent’s worst nightmare to lose a child, and I am no different. I went on crying and sobbing. Bhavani tried in so many ways by giving many examples to convince and comfort me and assure me that nothing wrong will happen. She commented that your faith would be tested at every step and to hold on to it tightly. And when nothing was happening, she firmly commented, “Okay, you can either hold on to your faith or keep crying like this”. LOL!!!!!

It may have been her voice, but those were Mohanji’s words. And I knew it was Mohanji, but the moment Bhavani uttered those words I could immediately experience a shift within me. I felt Mohanji was frustrated with me as I was so engulfed in emotions that nothing logical was registering in me, not even the evidence from Bhavani’s experiences. Mohanji has a lot of patience, but I was exhibiting delirium, for no reason.

That comment from Bhavani and in the way she said it did the magic. Listening to the words, “Hold on to your faith” took me out of the dark place. I calmed down, stopped crying and was peaceful. Bhavani stayed with me over the phone until she was convinced that I was okay. What started with crying and being fearful ended up with laughter, discovering a connection and love!

I have been part of the celebrations at the Datta Tapovan Ashram since Friday afternoon via zoom. Sunday was the last day of celebrating the festivities. Bhavani helped me conclude my prayers by offering Dakshina. Prayers should always be accompanied by Dakshina in any form. With Bhavani’s guidance, I donated towards Mohanji Ka Aangan and ACT4HUNGER; both the causes close to my heart. I felt so fulfilled, light and happy.

Only after talking to Bhavani, I could see through Mohanji’s leelas and his divine blessings. He directed me to get the Homa done for my benefit on such an auspicious day and freed me from a deep-rooted pain or fear that I wasn’t even aware of. If left unaddressed, it may have grown and interfered with me moving forward on this path. There was plenty of chanting and positive energy around me since Friday with the prayers. Mohanji’s Canada team worked effortlessly to ensure all the devotees tuning in via zoom have blissful experiences. It was just beautiful. Kudos to the entire team! Thank you Mahesh Ji for the Homa.

I am so thankful to Bhavani. I am filled with gratitude and love towards Mohanji. He gives unconditionally and doesn’t expect anything in return.

Before sleeping, I offered gratitude to Mohanji. The fear which had once engulfed me transformed into firm faith. I told him (to his picture), “Mohanji, you will never let anything happen to my kids. I know they are protected. I know you will take care of them. As a parent, you have experienced the loss of your daughter; in my heart, I know you will not let me go through that excruciating pain.”

The next day morning after my Kriya, I checked my messages and Bhavani had forwarded Mohanji’s quote that day, and you won’t believe what He had said. It is so surreal, at times, I have to pinch myself to make sure this is happening. Mohanji’s quote was,

“You will not have the struggle what I went through because I have already made the path for you to walk on, effortlessly.”

Mohanji

Mohanji really loves us unconditionally, his love is just infinite!

He was firm with me when he needed to be, and then he embraced me as a mother when I needed the assurance and motherly love. Mohanji is a lot of things for me, a friend, (my only friend), mother, father, and Guru! He works tirelessly for all of us. He takes so much upon himself. What I can comprehend based on my capacity and eligibility doesn’t even touch the surface of how generous and kind he is. It’s beyond my comprehension. He is with me in ways that I am not even aware.

To all those who are reading this, please know that I have never met Mohanji in person and I only started following him since April this year. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter how long you have known him in this life, whether you have met him in person, or if you are in close proximity to him, he doesn’t need a physical body to connect with us. He is energy, and we have to connect to that. And Mohanji repeatedly comments and asks us to connect with his consciousness and not stay limited to his physical form.

I am sharing this because I used to be that person who always used to wonder, “Why not me”, “When will I get such an experience”, “Oh, I wish I had that too”. I think the shift happened when I started to let go, surrender and began to experience others’ experiences as my own, I could feel their happiness and be with them in their experience. With Mohanji’s grace, I have started having awareness and recognition of his mystic ways. He communicates in so many ways, and it’s so beautiful even to describe it. In my experience, he will give me messages during meditation or through another devotee, dreams; I will hear his voice. There is an intuition, and I will follow it. Most of these messages are so out of character for me, that I know it is not my mind playing tricks, rather some higher divine energy in play. Mohanji has connected me to specific Acharyas for a specific reason. He has orchestrated events for me to be at the right time to receive the information required. Things such as listening to a replay of a video under the ‘Women Power Online Boot Camp’; joining a satsang where a guest speaker shares her experiences of her journey to Kailash with Mohanji, (I was not even aware of this event and received a last-minute invite).

Similarly, I got last-minute access to participate in Conscious Dancing with Devi Mohan on zoom; got my driver’s license renewed on the last day in 10 minutes! I can go on and on and on; there is no end to it. All I can say is, I love it. It’s like walking on water; it’s so liberating like someone is carrying me off my feet, I don’t feel the burden, the pressure. I just feel love!

Mohanji wanted me to get a Homa done, he knew that it is something I needed, but I had no clue. He spoke to me through Bhavani and said exactly what I needed to hear. His quote the following day was an assurance to me that he has heard everything I said to his picture the previous night and he was assuring me that he will not let anything happen.

Those who have just joined Mohanji, please don’t let anything come your way in connecting with him. I am telling you, he listens when you talk to him, even to his picture.

It is my ancestors and my parents’ karma that I am reaping the benefits and Mohanji’s grace in this lifetime. I have never experienced such unconditional love in my entire life. If I take one step towards him, he is taking ten towards me.

Believe me; I am not special; I am nothing. All I do is keep talking to him; that’s all I do. Whatever comes to my head, I tell him.

Sorry, Mohanji, there might be ‘message traffic’ coming your way in future and knowing that you love silence, this will be fun! Just kidding, I love you from the bottom of my heart (you can be at multiple places at the same time) I have loved you in my previous lifetimes too (an intuition). Writing this experience is also an intuition, it has been on my mind all day today, and I knew I had to do it.

Mohanji, always, always bless us!

podcast

Testimonials

For the occasion of the 50th episode milestone of Mohanji Speaks Podcast celebration, Mohanji provided a Satsang to everyone who submitted their video/audio expressing how the Mohanji Speaks Podcasts have positively impacted them.

He spoke about various topics that were discussed in his podcasts. The session was very powerful and transformative on so many different levels, and many people got answers and clarity they were looking for.

Here are the testimonials.

Rucha Mirachi 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.com

I’m immensely grateful to you all for organising a private satsang yesterday, and to Mohanji for taking the time to speak to all of us. It was the first time I saw Mohanji live and got an opportunity to speak to him.  

I was choked, in tears and didn’t know how to express myself and thank him. I just can’t forget that moment

As a father patiently listens to his child, Mohanji was listening to us and answering the questions beautifully. He was pouring love and compassion for us throughout the video and I just couldn’t hold my tears. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him and to all the people connected to him.
Thank you so much again.
Looking forward to the next one. 

Suptreet Bedi 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.com

Thank you for this opportunity of having Satsang with Mohan ji! I do not have words to express what I got. It is beyond words to describe the bliss and love of Baba! Thank you very much! I am very very grateful for this opportunity!

Sumalatha Thota 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comFirst thing I want to thank you all for giving me the opportunity to join the satsang. I never expected I would meet (virtual) Mohanji this early. I came to know about Mohan ji in March 2020. and I started incorporating his teachings in my daily life.

I was so happy to meet Mohanji and I couldn’t even say a word. But I know that he knew everything about everybody.

Hopefully next time I will open up myself.

Thank you so much! 

Nirupma Chowdharyi 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comIt’s  always a great experience to be with Mohanji, see him and hear him. Hear your name and special personal blessings and especially when Mohanji says am with you. 

My personal experience during the session was that I had written a question but it was not asked, and suddenly I heard Mohanji explaining about patterns, how they keep repeating themselves. How we can get rid of them and change our future lives. 

Through MTM the past life of mine and present has some very similar patterns and situations. Through his words all became clear.

Then Dr. Wazir’s experience and Mohanji said when you operate I am always with you. He wanted to leave in 2013 but is still performing heart surgeries in 2020 all Mohanji’s grace.

Beautiful little Sara’s connection. Mohanji is very fond of her and she is deeply connected to Mohanji. Once before also he had asked us to listen to her and see how her love and pure feelings connect her to Mohanji. Even his picture has power to converse with her. 

I too met him in my sleep, once I asked him and got a reply I do my work, you know it’s real or dream. So all what the mind wanted to know and listen to was given and beyond that a deep soul connection became stronger. 

Bhumika Arvind 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.com Pranam Mohanji, I am so very grateful for the opportunity to be part of a live Satsang with You. When it was announced that there will be a live satsang related to the Podcast and the requirement was for the participants to make a video and post it on social media platforms. I had cried sitting in front of your picture. I had commented, how unfortunate I am to miss this opportunity (I have major reservations about social media platforms, taking pictures or videos). It was not a random coincidence that I connected with Lakshmi Mohananda from South Africa recently. I expressed my request if an audio file can also be accepted instead of a video. Lakshmi ji said she was thinking about it as well since there were few other devotees who have expressed the same desire. The following day Lakshmi ji messaged me that Mohanji had already given the instruction to also accept audio files as some of the devotees may be hesitant to do a video recording. This is HIS kindness and grace to create this opportunity for HIS devotees and fulfill their desires.

My experience on the live Satsang with Mohanji:

How to find words to describe HIS generosity and grace. Mohanji was so kind to all of us. HE so generously gave HIS time. HE patiently answered the questions of the devotees and showered us with HIS blessings. I know that HE stayed much longer than the scheduled time, only to grant devotees their wishes and grant them with HIS darshan. If I have to sum up my experience, Mohanji’s motto does justice, “One family, one unit”. Through the Satsang there were experiences that were shared that felt like mine. As if someone else was sharing the transformation I have experienced within me and in my family, with my kids. The comments, devotees’ experiences and questions-answers were so beautifully synchronized. While answering a devotees question Mohanji simultaneously addressed my lingering questions and doubts. HIS comments to a devotee that HE has been beside him and kept HIS promise since 2013, gave me such great assurance. Mohanji confirmed with this devotee that HIS Padukas are at her home and HE is there in her home (she had just told her name and from where she is from, Mohanji commented even before she could complete her sentence). How blessed Supreet would have felt to have this confirmation directly from Mohanji. Even though I didn’t say those words, HE assured me that having HIS Padukas home is the same as having HIM home. HE confirmed that HE is with me too in my home since I do have Padukas at my house.

Mohanji satisfied my simple desire in response to another devotee’s query of meaning of “connecting to His consciousness”. HE simply said, “just remember me”. For a literal person like me this is easy to understand and follow. HE commented on the Guru principle. HE addressed how one may know if they are growing in their spiritual journey. HIS answers had such deeper meaning for me and penetrated my heart.

During the Satsang, something in me was assuring me that HE is here at home with me so instead of asking for an affirmation I rather made a foolish comment on having a filter option. It is a process and I am embarrassed about moments where I lose my cool and HE is sitting right there in the living room. So I was wondering if there may be filters that can help. Mohanji in HIS typical way replied, ” there is no need for a filter, there is nothing good or bad, whatever it is, is”. Later on contemplating on HIS response I realized that it isn’t about asking a filter from Mohanji, instead I need to be improving my own awareness and connection within with HIS grace. That is going to be the filter! I need to put in more effort and continuously and tirelessly work toward building my awareness and follow HIS teaching. I need to consistently practice witnessing life events as an audience and take them as just experiences rather than getting emotionally engaged into it. And the best way to know if I am making progress in going within is if today I could practice it more consistently than yesterday, just baby step at a time.

I am overwhelmed writing my experience, my throat is choking and I am in tears. This is the effect of the grace of a master when I have not even met HIM in person.

As Mohanji will say our mind is like a monkey and I am no different so after the Satsang, there was a thought / doubt in my mind, “why didn’t I ask Mohanji for a confirmation that HE is home with me”. I was sitting in front of Mohanji’s picture and talking to HIM. I heard Mohanji’s voice saying, “you hear me, don’t let doubts pop up” and an instinct was there to call Alpa ji (Mohanji’s Acharya from Toronto). I called Alpa ji  and she shared her own experiences with Mohanji and assured me that it’s all Mohanji’s leelas. We can have whatever questions but when we come in front of HIM, whatever is needed comes to the surface. I got my answer from Alpa ji. This is Mohanji’s grace. I informed Alpa ji that there was an instinct to call her and she commented that she was expecting a call from me anytime and knew I would call her.

Mohanji I know it is Your grace, kindness and love that there are changes within myself and outside. Without Your grace nothing is possible. YOU have given me strength to get through my difficult days, YOU are holding my hand, guiding me and walking with me. YOU are connecting me to people who are helping me in my spiritual journey. Mohanji, YOU have been with me in so many ways. Being an average simple devotee I can only understand that which is within my capacity to realize but my instinct tells me that YOU have been with me in ways that are beyond my understanding.

There is so much YOU have given generously. I am so deeply grateful for Your love, kindness and generosity. Mohanji, please always stay with me and my family. Bless me with awareness. I always want to hear YOU and YOUR  leelas, see YOU, share YOUR leela’s, sing YOUR glory. I always want to feel YOUR embrace, I have lost a lot and lived my life in ignorance without realization, please always guide me Mohanji. I hope one day YOU will give me an opportunity to meet YOU in person. LOVE YOU Mohanji. My humble salutations to Your lotus feet.

P.S. I am so thankful to the entire Podcast team. Lots of love and hugs to Maheshwari ji and Lakshmi ji for being the extension of Mohanji and arranging for me to attend the Satsang. Thank you Greenwood for modulating the Satsang. You are so blessed to have the close proximity to Mohanji. I am very very grateful. Love you all. And please, please arrange more live Satsangs with Mohanji. It’s such a blessing especially during these tough times.

Dr Harpreet Wasir 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comThis was a totally new experience especially during COVID times. It was firstly an expectance with awareness of a different way of connect with Mohanji using media.

Then it was so clear of so many different frequencies merging into single frequency in the presence of our Master.

Each one including me was one to one amidst all being in one large group globally.

Each one was answered to our souls fulfilment despite having asked a question or not.

This was surely a very acceptable way of communication with Mohanji.

I honestly did not find any difference in connecting with Mohanji having not been in his physical presence.

The coordination by the team was flawless which added to the comfort of the audience.

I surely look forward to the next session and which to have a one to one video connect with Mohanji. 

Looking forward for some way of receiving Shaktipat from Mohanji in future.

Maybe things like this in smaller coherent groups may answer this.

Thank you one and all for this session and all the efforts put in physically making Mohanji’s presence there with me and all attendees.

Lots of love always.

Tihana Frleta 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comThis way I want to thank Mohanji from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity he gave us. The satsang was beautiful, Mohanji as always full of love for all of us, simple, natural, spontaneous, patient, nurturing and witty. I got answers to all my questions (although I didn’t ask any) and more. Also, he beautifully described the value of having an available Guru in our life, now fully in my own essence I realize how much of a blessing it is. What impressed me the most was how Mohanji vividly described how we pass the same patterns from life to life, and how long it takes us to become aware of them and how important it is therefore to make this life purposeful and finally realize true liberation. And another important thing that Mohanji often emphasizes to us, in the Podcasts and in this Satsang, how important it is to fully accept ourselves with all our virtues and weaknesses, just the way we are. Thank you dear Mohanji for waking us up, transforming us, pointing to the source within us that can hardly wait for us to embrace it! Mohanji, thank you for being with us in this life!

Ulla Bernholdt 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comI would like to share my gratitude to Mohanji and the team behind the podcasts for this wonderful event. The whole idea behind the private satsang, of applying our own video testimonials was great, because we had the opportunity to learn so many things from that.

First we learned to reflect upon what a gift Mohanji’s podcasts are and how much they mean to us in terms of inspiration, upliftment and introspection. 

Also we learned that we should not take these podcasts or Fathers satsang for granted.

The idea of earning access to a satsang by doing a testimonial was actually great because so much creativity blossomed and people really did their best in order to achieve that goal. We had to put ourselves into action instead of just sitting at home on the couch being served by Mohanji.  

It seemed that a lot of people met Mohanji for the first time and had joined either through listening to the podcast series or through the 41 days of Meditation Sadhana and it was wonderful to feel their joy and being a part of their happy experience.

Dragana Tešanović 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comMy God. Mohanji was so perfect. He explained complete existence in such a simple way. My heart expanded after that talk with Mohanji. He removed all of the clutter from my mind. He showed another dimension of Himself to me. I am so happy to hear there will be more such meetings. Yeeyy!! Jai Mohanji

Cathy Johnston 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comFor me, hailing from a working class northern UK family, our formative spiritual experiences were mostly cold, foreboding and full of dire warnings, laced with unmentionable consequences should we err from the God given path.

Shivering on a cold pew in a shadowy church dressed up in our Sunday best, no-one ever had the answers we children craved – rendering our spiritual selves confused and wilting, devoid of a foundation to build upon.

Fast forward 59 years and in one short week at a Mohanji retreat in Serbia Nov 2019, all of my answers are laid out before me. Answers to questions I’d forgotten I’d had. And answers to those I’d not even asked.

Simple, honest and down to Earth yet at the same time, dense with ancient history, and meanings packed tight with unknown jargon for my Western ears to even attempt to assimilate.

And then came, Mohanji’s podcasts – Mohanji Speaks – like a breath of fresh air to my overwhelmed Western mind.

Short snippets of common sense and guided wisdom, delivered with bite-sized, manageable information – much easier to digest and ponder for the uninitiated novice like me.

Despite Mohanji being 5 yrs my junior, for me, Mohanji is the true Father, the Father I ached for, the guide for my souI. 

Just hearing Mohanjis voice never fails to make me smile, his dry, infectious humour, never far from the surface is a joy to behold. 

A trillion miles away from the bellowing sermons from the draughty pulpits of my childhood.

Thank you Mohanji

Heema Mohan 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comFirstly i’d like to thank you all for putting this together, together you all have reached out to a lot of people directly and indirectly.

I am 36 yrs old and throughout my life even though i come from a big family with lots of brothers and sisters I always felt alone and a few months ago I started my journey with Mohanji baba. I have never once felt this loneliness since. Hearing him speak, his podcasts, his satsangs and everything he is and does is so fulfilling for me. The emptiness has left through one door and Mohanji came through the other.

I have found a deeper meaning in my life. I look at things that happen daily in a different light. I almost see Mohanji wherever I go, I see him in his white attire walking before me. For the first time in my life I feel someone, not just even anyone, but a saint, a god avatar and everything Mohanji is made up of is with me. It is almost unexplainable what is happening to me, my thoughts, my views. Everything about me is turning from darkness to light. I feel secure in the arms of Mohanji. I sometimes see him laughing or smiling and saying to me “you got this, you don’t need me” it’s like I hear it. And sometimes I’ll be smiling back and my kids will ask me mummy what’s wrong, why are you smiling lol.

Since Zoom met Mohanji during Saturday’s satsang, my kids and I are super amazed and we feel his love tremendously. I live far far away from my immediate family and I am a proud single mother of two girls 10 & 12, my family history is of the Mohan family formerly of India through grand grand and great great grandfathers I strongly feel I am told by my father that this is the Mohan he was looking for a few yrs before he could pass on. My father knew that there was someone of great importance with this name who he needed to meet. And through Mohanj’s grace and love for us we have met. He is now the father in my home, the friend, the companion, the everything. He has filled up my children’s heart with love and contentment where previously it was sadness and despair. 

Today we feel complete, nothing can come close to this that we are and feel today. 

I did not know much about spirituality in my younger days and I would really love and hope that there could be more of these interactions with children as well. It will be such a great personal achievement if kids from a young age get involved with aspects that really matter in life.

Please kindly pass this message to Mohanji as well. I am most certain I was destined to meet him through my late father who had already known him. 

Thank you Baba, for everything and most importantly for me, just being a part of my life.

Nina Pualic 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comThis was my first live satsang with Mohanji and really was amazing. Besides Mohanji’s valuable answers, for me personally the greatest value had the last part when I had a chance to speak with Mohanji. After just one sentence from him I felt powerful, intensive and realising feeling in my heart so I started crying like a child. This feeling can’t be described by words. From this moment I really feel Mohanji in my heart. Love Mohanji.

Asja Dupanovic 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comI am so happy that you have asked for the feedback, I was going to write to you myself. 

First of all, thank you for a great and clean, stress-free organisation of this satsang. 

It was a wonderful experience. The time spent with Mohanji that day was very fulfilling, I was touched by and have noted down many things he said. However, one insight I am especially grateful for.

I always felt the need to be told what exactly my purpose in life is, as if I had no idea what to be doing unless someone tells me very clearly, gives me some kind of a concrete position, a task. For years I felt like what I was doing, the way I was adding value to my surroundings was great but that I could do much more if only I know what exactly. What complete nonsense it was to trust myself and my intuition so little!

Talking about how to develop will power, Mohanji uttered magical words saying “Adding value to the world is our purpose”.

I understood what he meant and have no words to explain how inspiring this sentence was for me. It brought all the clarity I was looking for. I am thankful beyond any word. 

Laurie Ann 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comI have had the blessing of attending a Satsang with Mohanji before and I have always felt like I have heard something specific that has really helped me. This was true again for this recent Satsang, where so much of it felt applicable to me. I love Mohanji’s communication style, it is clear, to the point and delivered in a direct manner. Perfect. I left with such a feeling of calm and wellbeing, like everything was alright with me and the world.

What I found especially heart warming was watching all the new followers seeing Mohanji for the first time. I have remembered this a few times since the Satsang and now, just writing this, I am once again moved to tears as I remember their excitement and emotion at being able to speak with him. It was absolutely amazing and precious.

Thank you for this beautiful experience.

Nada Raković 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comFrom this talk and all Mohanjis talks, I feel lighter, brighter. I am happy to see and hear Him. I am more aware of this temporary reality, fleeting objects, emotions, feelings, thoughts, situations…. But I am more able to witness. I understand there is more, not just this life, not only these temporary aspects and senses we use to experience Life. Nothing belongs to me anyway. 

Life is happening every moment. Inevitably. 

Mohanji’s talks and podcasts in general give me understanding, awareness, clarity, more peace, acceptance, gratitude, and flow in life. Whatever level of  understanding, clarity, awareness, peace, acceptance, flow and gratitude I gain or I have – it’s all due to Him! I owe all to HIM! He reminds me of our temporality, and to use this time to be effective at every given moment. 

Thank You Mohanji for Your Sacred Existence!

Always at Your feet.

Zoran Milisic 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comThis Satsang was one of the most powerful Satsangs that I have participated in. I still feel the effect of Mohanji’s presence in me. Thank you for organising the event.

Marijana Blokar 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comHello, my name is Marijana and I live in Croatia. In gratitude to Mohanji I will tell you about how I have met the teacher Guru Parabrahma Mohanji. 

I met Mohanji in Bosnia on a program organized by the Mohanji organization in 2017. 

Before that meeting, I met a Mohanji student, Branko, who was leading a conscious walking in my town Rijeka. My friend told me about Mohanji and his experiences. I listened to him and took it lightly. I went for conscious walking on Sunday mornings still having my gaze on how it benefits me. The morning walk for me represented a good change in the morning run and relaxation in nature. I was still unaware that I had joined Mohanji’s Consciousness walking!! It was not clear to me then. Soon there was a lecture by archaeologist Samir Osmanagić in my city about the Bosnian pyramids in the town of Visoko. I went to a lecture and was delighted, and got interested in the trip to the Bosnian pyramids. When I opened the page on the internet looking for the program about a trip organized by a group that organized a lecture by archaeologist Samir Osmanagić, Mohanji’s poster popped up from the Mohanji organization with Mohanji’s Face. My eyes widened and I told my husband we had to go. After a few days we agreed and paid for the trip to Bosnia Pyramid. My first meeting with Mohanji was so relaxing and joyful, that excitement and expectations were gone. I met a simple and cheerful Guru, who has exceptional wisdom and knowledge The messages of Mohanji that I heard at the satsang in Bosnia changed my outlook on life. So even today when I think and lead a debate with myself about some topics: about humanity, about the universe, about self love, about relationships, family, about anything, Mohanji posts a message and gives me an answer and direction!  At first I thought it was an accident. After a while, this happens again. And then you open your eyes wide because he gives a message that is clear and easy to understand at that moment. 

When I became interested in knowledge, to learn more about spirituality, at one point I joined a new group that was reading an interesting book Book of knowledge. Mohanji posted the message and his face in the triangle emblem. 

A very big coincidence, in the book I started reading the emblem is the triangle. Sacred geometry. I took this as a sign it is good to read that book for knowledge.

In this new group, there were rules of the knowledge book that said that a student could be attached to one Teacher’s Aura with an explanation of the influence of cosmic energy on the student’s consciousness and body. Those rules gave me a clear picture that I had to choose only one teacher. 

Mohanji’s messages always motivated me and showed me the way. I am grateful that there is such a teacher.

I once wrote that Mohanji provides me with support for stability. It triggers the inner dormant energy for life. Unselfishly connected in peace and blessing.

His messages are inspiring. 

Be what you are now with everything that has been given to you from life.

You can only start walking from where you are standing. 

No matter if your candlelight is weak, they are still in flame.

Lori Werner 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comNever in my wildest dreams, would I have ever thought it possible to come in contact with a Master. To have an experience similar to the disciples of Jesus or the people of Shirdi during the lifetime of Shirdi Sai Baba.

This has been so clearly my experience and a kind of realization at this moment in time corresponding to the recent Satsang with Mohanji celebrating the 50th milestone podcast of Mohanji Speaks. 

The eternal gratitude I have for each and every podcast that Mohanji delivered like beautiful gems on the shore is a whole other article with much to express. I will stay with my experience of the Satsang and only say these last few months have been so transformative from the inside of my very being on every level that the signs of transformation are now becoming visible on the outside.

The noticing of this transforming me, came as my experience of this beautiful Satsang. I will try and convey what that experience was, although sometimes words have become inept in describing the feeling of Beauty or Divinity.

It was like stepping into the dawning of the golden age of Aquarius like that of the musical Hair. Mohanji casually poised on a chair draped in green and orange cloths.. Truly a casual celebration similar in feeling to what I imagine Jesus rapping with his disciples.

But there was no imagination needed here, the highly permeated ambiance of the Satsang was already in progress when I joined in 13 minutes in. (At 4am, PST in the USA, I did not check my emails and took me a moment to catch up with the Important notice of a new zoom code. The only reason for mentioning this is despite things not going smooth, I was having already this beautiful Divine experience of self with nothing in mind but patience and naturalness in finding the solution then logging in) and upon slipping in to the Satsang, I could only feel this deep sense of my own Naturalness and Connectedness.  SO NATURAL. It was like I was there from the beginning and me joining in needed no adjustment on anyone’s part, I was feeling so accepting of myself, as I was already One with the entire Satsang that was in session. This experience was immediately so deep and saturated within me, I felt more connected to Mohanji and everyone present than ever. The questions and answers were Flowing Like A River, calm yet Rapid, and I was totally filled with complete fulfillment in these moments, more than 2 hours. I noticed after joining in, Mohanji almost as if back tracking addressed the Parallel Realities topic. This had been in my mind as my only question days prior to the Satsang that I had not even submitted and yet was completely answered!

This feeling continued throughout the entire Satsang and even though Mohanji was so casually addressing what felt like advanced topics, He was moving at a pace my mind felt like it was sprinting!

Who else other than such a Loving Living Master can provide this type of priceless experience? I have honestly felt as if I was living and interacting in a Satcharitra like space through these interactive podcasts and now this Amazing Satsang as a form of a living breathing virtual Leela! Truly Grace Personified. And Immense Gratitude.

An interesting thought about why this Satsang felt so different and special to me occurred and I don’t know if it’s truly relevant?

I had the distinct feeling later that what I was feeling, 

This presence that was so Palpable and Real amongst this Satsang could be not only the energy of the Master and Guru Tattwa present but also because of the culmination of everyone present had the common experience of listening to these podcasts previously leading up to this event. This deeply saturated Naturalness, Acceptance, and Connectedness was like a new Reality experience of “One World. One Family” brilliantly devised and delivered by Mohanji! There was no agenda amongst the attendees other than the sincere Gratitude and Honoring and further Exploring of their understanding of the material which was being used as a jumping off point. And what followed was this undeniable Richness that allotted for what felt like many doors being opened! For the first time the statement that we are Unlimited and it is only the mind that limits us landed, and so did the realm of that Possibility in that moment. (This has also happened to me in many moments while listening to the podcasts. Then experiencing these moments of realization and application even if for only a few seconds in life, there is the awakening happening and one gets one step closer to that possibility.)

So I have come away with the feeling that there is unbelievable great value in these podcasts affording consistency and exposure to the Master. These wonderful small doses, which are so precious and not so small, have been experienced in the effects that really sneak up on you!  Before you know it, you have been fully re-educated with eternal tools you can use to transform yourself and the world around you. WOW.

Mohanji Please accept, from the depth of soul, my Eternal Gratitude. Thank you for being there for me and all of us during this time! You have given me Strength and made my life a Beautiful Experience completely immune to world events, 

You have been the mother turtle on the opposite shore sending such loving and compassionate glances delivering these beautiful messages that have gently and safely washed to the other shore. I am so deeply Honored in every possible way, to have had this time and these experiences with you and the Consciousness that is Mohanji.

Master, Thank You, I so believe in you!

Padmini Ravi Kumar 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comThanks for this opportunity to write the feedback. Firstly, Eternally grateful to Mohanji for the podcasts and the satsang that followed. As I mentioned in my podcast audio, His bitesize vitamins for the soul are hugely empowering and inspiring. The satsang happening for me was a leela by itself, as I had sent my reflections on audio to the wrong email address. But thanks to Mohanji and His Podcast team, I managed to get the link just in time for the satsang. 

Secondly, Mohanji’s satsang was as usual power packed; some of the salient points which impacted me were His one liners, which are listed out. I plan to print it out and place it on my desk.

  1. Awake from the massive illusion you have been entertaining.
  2. Accept whatever comes as is. 

     3. Personal experience has more relevance than books or words of another.

  1. Mind restricts one’s potential (lack of capacity) while soul empowers (enormous capacity)
  2. Accept oneself totally; when acceptance happens, deep peace happens. When there is resistance, there is mental agitation.
  3. A prejudiced mind sees division.
  4. Willpower comes with clarity of purpose; adding value to the world is our purpose; add value to the world with skills, values and determination.
  5. Where you park your mind, that you become. 
  6. Invest in Awareness.

There are many such powerful pointers which were given; the above resonated with me as I have been working on self acceptance and always wondered; what is it to accept oneself; but Mohanji pointed out that the outcome of acceptance is deep peace; this gave me clarity on this issue. The simple answer He gave on how to deal with current times, be flexible, had a profound effect. As I have learnt over the past years of association with Him, Being Mohanji is a state; a state of stillness, equanimity and love; the Stithpragya state as described in the Gita. Whatever the scriptures say, I see it that in HIm; He is indeed the Infinite Truth embodied and walking with us!!

Lastly, my Guru Dakshina to Him would be to live His teachings,that’s my deepest wish and desire and hope with His grace it happens.

Ivana Surjan Mitrović 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.com

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the Satsang with Mohanji. It was a real blessing to receive his love at least through Zoom. During the Satsang I had a few questions in my head that I didn’t ask, but I got the answers anyway. I got answers to some questions after the Satsang, through messages I would ‘accidentally’ read on Facebook or hear on television. That’s how I know that Mohanji is really always with me. He hears me and delivers me everything I need. Thank you Father!

Sathya Shiva 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comGrateful to the Tradition, Mohanji and the social media (podcast) team for their efforts to arrange Satsang with Mohanji.

Listening to the podcast and sharing our thoughts was such a small act compared to the finale!

Mohanji’s session was so spontaneous and from the heart, as always.

Thought I would share with you some key takeaways that stayed with me from the session

-Transcend all man made barriers and blocks and experience oneness. 

-Diversity has its beauty and has to be appreciated.

-Humanity is our religion. Adding value to the world should be the purpose.

-Invest in your strength! Ignore your weakness!

-Don’t look for success or failure.

-One spark would be enough to ignite, if we are ready .

-If failures come, accept and move forward.

-Doubt is the key that the devil uses to enter the mind of a person and wreak havoc.

-We have to become like dry wood… Just wait for the opportune moment so that the flame will be ignited in us by the Master.

-One’s ability to do something positive for the world would be one’s independence. Not needing anything and healing others and healing the world would be independence. Independence is an inside story… Let the inside story unfold and lead us to light!

Meeta Sahai 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comLet me start by congratulating and thanking you for a life transforming satsang with Mohanji. It was a wonderful effort on your part to connect all disciples with the master. At the same time you encouraged everyone to listen to the podcasts. Superb effort. Great going. Hope to have many more such events in the future. Congratulations once again.

Ines Arredondo 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comGood afternoon, my name is Ines, I live in Aruba but I am Peruvian. This time I want to express my gratitude and love to Mohanji. Never participated in a Satsang before in my life and I feel blessed. I experienced strong emotion in my heart, in my soul. Thanks to Mirela, because my friend Martha Bazan enrolled me in the Mohanji Peru Club and we were in quarantine. Well, it has been the best gift that I have been able to experience daily feelings of very strong emotions with Maitri, and the daily Meditations, my Yoga that I love so much. I just want to say I love him from the heart and I listen to his podcast every day through EBC. Thank you Thank you Thank you. This is my testimony today and forever.

Chitra Chithi 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comSatsang on a podcast held on 15/8/2020 was really interesting and mind blowing. Instead of writing or asking questions, I was watching silently. Many were telling how tangible Mohanji is now. One person mentioned that those who haven’t met Mohanji yet could hear his heartbeat by just touching his photo and the one who don’t have eyes could see him through third eye, others mentioning how they are able to know his presence always. Mohanji was answering many questions humorously too.. 

Mohanji gave insight on connecting to a living master without doubts, comparison and expectations, which he said are the traps in spiritual progress. When doubts come, he asked to burn the doubt with faith. He again asked to put our 100% effort in all actions and forget about the result, that is surrendering to God or Guru. He also asked everyone to accept weaknesses and strengthen their strengths. Let the weakness be there aside, and strengths should be grown like nurturing a plant. Thanks a lot Mohanji and the team for this beautiful satsang.

Pravani Govender 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comI relish every opportunity to listen to Mohanji and soak in his wisdom. 

This private satsang however, offered a rare gift – I was able to speak to Mohanji directly as he answered the question I had posed. This filled me with gladness head to toe 🙂 

The satsang felt intimate due to the limited number on the call and thus rather special for us all I am sure. 

Thank you Baba, thank you to all for making this experience possible. 

Pooja Jobanputra 50th podcast Mohanji Speaks mohanji.podbean.comI would like to share my experience of the satsang last week.

It was a truly memorable experience. Each time I see Mohanji live, I feel the immediate personal connection, it feels as though he is looking at each one of us and we are having our own private satsang! It is truly magical and I find myself overwhelmed with love and a deep seated warmth towards our beloved guru.

Mohanji patiently listened to each one of us, and I was able to say hello and thank him personally for the healing and guidance I felt when my father was recently unwell. As I spoke, I knew he was aware of all my thoughts and I didn’t need to explain anything!!!

Thank you Mohanji for connecting with me so beautifully. You are our supreme guide and I love your Zoom satsangs. I look forward to more opportunities.

What is your experience? You can listen and follow Mohanji Speaks podcast here
