“Understand. I never leave anybody who trusts in me. Faith in God and Guru is the ultimate protection. Selfless Service is the ultimate insurance. Surrender with gratitude is the ultimate prayer. Remember this always. Doubts are your enemy. Confusion is what they leave you with. Alienation and separation from truth brings people down who doubt themselves, others, gurus, and gods. Stay with the truth. Do what’s right. Always be grateful. Always display compassion and kindness. The world is what we make it to be. Live compassion. Love unconditionally. Be Mohanji always.” – Mohanji
With our limited minds we see glimpses of the various divine dimensions of Mohanji and attempt to describe what we have experienced as testimonials/stories. These are expressions of pure love from devotees who feel Mohanji’s compassion, love and protection when they are truly connected to Him.
Mohanji says, “One of the basic reasons for our existence in the body is expression, so you must express. That’s the way you are. As you are, you express, that’s important, so you need to express yourself honestly, not in a conditioned way.”
With deep reverence, gratitude, humility and love, we offer Mohanji Satcharita 4 at the divine feet of our Guru, Brahmarishi Mohanji.
These stories when read with faith and conviction would inspire the reader to also experience the divine qualities of Mohanji.
In this chapter, there are nine more stories of Mohanji’s Divine grace & protection.
Divine Grace & Protection

We need to surrender with faith and awareness and rest assured that the Master takes care of each one of us. Read on and enjoy these true experiences of people in various situations.
So here are the nine stories shared by devotees on how they have felt Mohanji’s grace and protection at different times.
1. Miraculous Hues In A Pendant: Ruby Nair, Virginia, USA
Aum Gam Ganapataye Namah!!
During this Virginia Retreat in August 2018, we were introduced to various accessories: Mohanji Protection Pendants, Mohanji Protection Bracelets and Mohanji Vibhuti Boxes. As I am not a big fan of any sort of jewelry or accessories and don’t wear any, I did not want to purchase them.
When the products were introduced, I asked for the price and Mohanji casually and laughingly said “$100 for Ruby, since she is from NY.” Later that evening, I ended up buying two bracelets and did spend about $100!
A couple of weeks later, I was speaking to someone about something random and the person suggested that being a Mai-tri healer, I should keep some Mohanji Protection Pendants with me in case someone with a need may come by. Around the same time I happened to chat with Manu about something else and he shared that he has been wearing his necklace pendant every day since the retreat but takes off the bracelet at night. So, I felt I should purchase the necklace pendants for my family as well. I decided to do this because the Mohanji Protection Bracelet was at my altar most of the time and I wore it only during meditations or when going somewhere special, since I didn’t want it to get dirty or break during my house work. However, the necklace on the other hand, will always be with me and it is small enough to not get in my way.
On October 4th, 2018, I received some Mohanji Protection pendant necklaces in silver, and as soon I got them, I placed one in front of Mohanji’s picture on the altar, thanking Him for bringing them to us. I was just happy that I was wearing the necklace all the time now and didn’t have to worry about taking it off and getting it dirty etc. For the first two days of wearing the new necklace (Mohanji Protection Pendant), I felt very tired, exhausted and ran a low-grade fever. I found that few others who recently purchased the bracelets had experienced something similar in terms of energies, so I just took it as a sign of purification. However, out of the four members in the house, I was the only one to fall sick.
On December 1st, after about a two-month time period, I was just glancing at my pendant and I noticed how dark it had become. I was under the impression that silver never changes colour when it is on a person. So, the first thought was, “How is this even possible?” All the negative thoughts started popping in my head and in a confused state I went to my husband and looked at his pendant.
It was not at all dark, so I just took the pictures of both pendants and sent it to Manu to hopefully get some clarity and find out if others who have purchased them had noticed something similar. As we were discussing the colours, Manu noticed that my Mohanji pendant, even though it was dark, had hues of violet/blue in the third eye, on the neck and on the shawl, and it also had shades of gold on it. In my husband’s pendant, it was as if the pendant itself had a golden tone with no other hues. It would have gone totally unnoticed if I hadn’t noticed my own darkened pendant.
I was reassured by Manu that he would find out from Mohanji and get back to me. So, the next morning I got three text messages from him. The messages were from Mohanji and they were as follows:
- “Purification. Warding off negative effects from the body.”
- “Colours signify presence. Golden is me, my tradition, sign of who is protecting.”
- “Plus, silver converting to black or any other color is normal.”
It was also mentioned in the text that when Mohanji was asked what the blue/violet tones meant, he just said welcome to my unusual world with the smiley face 😊
After receiving these messages, I was immediately calm and happy to know there was nothing negative about me that caused the silver to change colors. By speaking with Manu again, there was more clarity. Since I am a Mai-tri healer, the pendant was protecting me from the dark energies and I wasn’t even aware of it. Having this confirmation and knowing that I am always protected brought me to a safe place where I know I am carrying a part of Mohanji with me everywhere.
It is also very humbling to know how the universe works wonders and brings things into our lives to change, shape, protect, etc.
One thing I have learned in this journey with Mohanji is that whenever someone offers us any advice, especially from Mohanji’s family, it may seem small or insignificant or just crazy, we ought to listen. We miss a lot by listening to our minds. Sometimes just go with the flow as I did with the decision of purchasing the extra pendants.
2. The ‘Light’er Effect: Mina Obradović, Serbia
One day, I lit the oil lamp in front of Mohanji’s picture, left the lighter on the table and started doing something else. I suddenly heard the noise of something falling to the ground behind me. When I turned around, I saw the lighter burning. Fear overwhelmed me as I quickly put out the fire. Mohanji’s picture fell right next to the lighter, showing me it was Him that saved me. I was terrified, but also filled with love and gratitude at the same time. I cannot fully explain the moment. It was just miraculous.
The object falling to the ground was our God (Mohanji, Jesus or Buddha…) keeping me safe.
They have shown me one small way in which they are protecting me, but who knows what kind of things they deal with on daily basis for us? And still, they don’t ask for anything in return.
I am endlessly grateful to our beloved Mohanji, all the Masters, Gods and Goddesses for always being present and protecting me.
Love to all.
3. The Miraculous ‘Impact’: Ana Raos, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
I would like to share something I experienced today. I was on my way to Bijeljina, where Devi was conducting Yoga Nidra. After travelling for about 20 kilometres, I suddenly lost control of the car. Due to rain, the road was slippery and there might also have been some oil on the road. The wheels began to slide and the car rolled down the bushy hill, slowed down and was miraculously stopped by some thick shrubbery. My heart was beating very fast but I was not injured. There was not a single scratch or bruise, absolutely nothing. The car also was not damaged, without a scratch. A wrecking truck got me out smoothly from the shrubbery.
I couldn’t make it to for the Yoga Nidra program, but I felt very, very grateful and blessed that everything ended like this. This is another proof of how blessed and happy I am to be under Mohanji’s protection. He is always with us. I also consider this as a gentle warning to drive more carefully and not to be in a hurry. Never again will I hurry. Thank you, dearest Father for your love and blessings. You saved my life – not only in this accident, but every single day in many different ways. Love you deeply.
Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji!
4. An unseen protection: Samantha, South Africa
We had just got back from our Rishikesh retreat and I was helping my son move houses. I had taken a picture of our Mohanji and Babaji with me for their prayer altar. While I was there, my son hung up a wall mirror on the passage way wall and an hour later we just heard a crash. The mirror had fallen and broken. I am very superstitious, but this time I remained calm and just said to them that Mohanji has a reason for it to happen. The following week, my two year old granddaughter ran into the same wall and hurt her head. Had the mirror been there, it could have caused a serious injury! When my son called me to talk about the incident, the first thing he said was, “You did say that our Mohanji had a reason when the mirror broke….!”
“When gratitude becomes the essence of our character, excesses vanish, ego vanishes and anxieties vanish. Gratitude supports faith. Gratitude provides equanimity. Gratitude reinforces unconditional love. If you have to choose one quality in life, choose gratitude. It is worth it. Everything else will fall in place by itself.” Mohanji
Om Shree Gurudeva Datta!
5. Grace of faith: Punam Kapoor, Canada
This was the time in my life where I (my soul) was supposed to leave this body to move on to the next stage in my soul’s journey. Due to this time period, my spine shifted, disconnecting from my vital organs. I felt as if I would collapse any minute.
With Sai Baba’s grace, there was an energy healer with whom we made an urgent appointment for the same evening. It was praying for Mohanji’s grace. I called out to Him for help, as I had a sinking feeling inside. I could hear a voice saying, “Your work is done.” I had chest pain.
I sent an urgent email to firstname.lastname@example.org asking for guidance.
The healer straightened my spine and connected my vital organs to the meridians which stabilized me. However, my energy levels were too low.
I called a Mohanji family member to send me healing and she reminded me that, “Punam you are a healer yourself, try healing yourself.” That night, I sat in my puja room and prayed to Mohanji to give me strength and to heal me. Saying this, I put my hands on my heart and solar plexus chakra.
After a minute, which I took to settle down, a strong but soothing warm current started flowing. This gave me the same feeling as Mohanji giving me Shaktipath. The next morning, I felt so much better and had the energy to go back to work!
“Faith leads. Faith soothes. Faith reinforces. Faith nurtures life. Faith elevates life. Faith stabilizes life. Faith Liberates man. Faith increases with experiences”
My gratitude and koti pranaams to Mohanji.
6. Protection from theft: Nazeema Botha, South Africa
I would like to share an experience that happened on 31st October 2018 after Suvarna and I got back to Sandton from the airport. We both requested Uber cabs to take us home and the phone app located a pick up spot as they are not allowed to pick up at the station due to taxi violence.
We walked across the street to wait for the cabs to arrive and as we stood on the corner, a security guy called out to us. But I was hesitant, as number one, who knows if he really was a security person, and number two, I don’t trust anyone after dark. So I told Suvarna not to go as we didn’t know who he was and what he wanted.
We both stood with phones in our hands and checking the arrival time of the cab drivers. I was holding the phone with almost no grip; it was basically just resting in my palm. A few minutes later, a guy walked by and grabbed my phone, but it fell back into my hand! It was as if this guy’s hand was moved away from the phone, and it had fallen back into my hand! A car suddenly pulled up, he jumped in, and they drove off.
I was stunned and shocked at the same time. But most of all, I felt the protection of our Guru. Thank you Mohanji for your grace and protection. Pranaams to your holy feet…
“The power of purity immunizes from the rocks and shocks of daily existence. The power of purity radiates. Purity empowers. Purity strengthens. Purity liberates. It brings gratitude into existence.”
7. Divine Grace to Animals, the perfect example of Love and Compassion: Subhasree, London
Mohanji’s love and compassion for all beings of Mother Earth has been seen on many occasions.
Mohanji on animals, nature and compassion
I was fortunate enough to witness one such incident during my trip to Serbia in November 2017 and I would like to share it here.
As a part of a charity initiative, ACT Serbia brought approximately a metric ton (around 2204 pounds) of dog food and visited a dog shelter run single handed by a lady. More than 350 abandoned, now rescued dogs are sheltered there. Mohanji was with us during this visit.
We reached the shelter and soon a little puppy walked up to me. I picked him up and noticed that he was shivering. I cuddled him. Comforted, he started licking my face and throat and soon buried his face in my arms and dozed off!
Food bags were being unloaded and everyone was carrying them inside (including Mohanji). I wanted to lay the puppy on the floor and join the group in their effort, but the puppy wouldn’t budge! So I continued to hold him while he enjoyed his nap! Mohanji noticed this, came near me and commented that the puppy and I appeared to share a bond and a past connection; hence my trip to Serbia all the way from London to share my motherly love. We laughed, but deep within, I felt that it was true. I already shared a close bond with this puppy.
Mohanji then said, “It’s a very good dog. It needs a home. See if someone can adopt it and take it home.” At that point in time, I wished I could take him home! I have been resisting my son’s demand to bring a puppy home as a pet for years; now as I held the puppy, I wished to take him home! I even mentioned this to Mohanji, and wondered how difficult it would be to take him along in the flight. He nodded. I was determined to give him a home, even if it could not be mine. So I asked the volunteers. I even offered to sponsor this puppy if someone is ready to adopt. But unfortunately, at that point of time, no one was ready.
I kept holding him, wishing that someone would adopt him and give him a nice home.
Mohanji walked by again, this time he stroked the puppy’s head with immense love. He kept his hand on its head. The puppy looked up to him. As he placed his hand on the puppy’s head, he closed his eyes and slept, as if he were witnessing the divine energy that was flowing to him.
Then Mohanji gave him Shaktipath on his third eye. I was choked and teary eyed at this sight! I couldn’t believe the good fortune of the puppy. How fortunate was he to receive Shaktipath from Mohanji ! Even as an animal, his life was being cleansed through the process and it felt like someone very close to me was being blessed. I was also amazed and filled with gratitude to Mohanji, for his unconditional love and compassion. It did not discriminate between species, just as the sun shines brightly for all on earth. In the eyes of the Supreme Consciousness, Para Brahma, all beings are his creation and hence equal. Comparison and partiality lies in the human mind only.
Strangely after receiving the Shaktipath, the puppy woke up with a lot of energy and started moving around. He walked around me in a circle and then moved away. Mohanji said, “Look, he is doing a pradkshina” (circumambulation), thanking you and expressing his gratitude!” I realised all of us could learn from this little one. We left the shelter but my heart was with the little puppy. I wondered if he was going to find a loving home. After two days, I returned to London, my experience with the puppy still fresh. I kept talking to everyone about him and hoped he would be adopted soon.
In a couple of week’s time Deviji messaged me, saying one of the volunteers (Spomenka)from Serbia went back to the dog shelter and has indeed adopted the same puppy. Though Spomenka already had few dogs with her and had no intention of getting one more, she was moved when she heard Mohanji wants the puppy to get a home!
I was so glad to hear that the puppy had found a home. At this thought, tears began flowing from my eyes with gratitude for Mohanji. This was no less than a miracle. He said this dog must find a home. He gave shaktipath to it. Few days later, he found a home; and in the home of a Mohanji devotee! Well I don’t know if I will ever meet the puppy again; not that it is important. Knowing that he lives somewhere in a safe home, comforts me.
Now more than a year later, I got to see the photos of the puppy, now known as ‘Zen’ enjoying in his home with mum Spomenka! The love is eternal.
My gratitude to Mohanji for spreading unconditional love, enabling two very different beings to meet and share a few moments of unconditional love. The puppy and I enjoyed each other’s love and I treasure it forever. This is perfect example of the eternal love that Mohanji has for all the beings of Mother Earth. My heartfelt gratitude at the feet of such Master.
The link below contains simple truths as explained by Mohanji in his inimitable style, about animals and our relationship with them. More food for thought!
8. Protection in all states: Sunita Madan, India
While we know about Mohanji’s protective hand shielding us always, I experienced it first-hand one night. Since 29th December, 2018, there has been a lot of turbulence in my life due to my ailing mother and her hospitalisation. I spent much of my time in the hospital. Yesterday though I was not feeling too well and I came home to get some sleep.
In my dream state, I saw dark energies coming towards me but before they could touch me I found myself screaming Mohanji’s name twice and instantly they disappeared. Then I found myself loudly reciting the Gayathri mantra. All was well and the dark energies also moved towards the light.
The following question and Mohanji’s response are very relevant here.
Q: I dreamt of you, is it possible to connect with you even through dreams?
Mohanji : So any dream; you interpret it as you wake up, “It’s a dream, I met Mohanji,” may not be a dream. It could be a connection which we had astrally.
It was a truly amazing experience. I realized we are powerful because we have Mohanji. Nothing negative can touch us when we are connected. Complete faith and surrender are the only requirements. We are all blessed. Pranaams at your lotus feet. Jai Mohanji!
9. Grace at work: Surya Sujan, Kerala
I met my school friend, Mohanji on 26th December, 2018 after 38 years. I am still in a daze that I was able to meet Mohanji, one, who I thought was beyond my reach. None from my school are able to believe this meeting happened. Since then many miracles seem to be occurring in my life! I would like to share one of them as below:
My senior officer, who I report to at work, was awaiting his promotion order on Jan 4th, 2019. He found out that his replacement was a direct recruit; someone I did not know and one who was known to be quite rude, with no respect for age or seniority. Obviously, everyone in our office was dejected. I am the second in command in the office and I was also dispirited. I stay in Kannur and work in Calicut, which is 100 km away. I have fortunately been coming in a little later and leaving a little early. Since I have a long commute, I was allowed this privilege and I must say I had become accustomed to this relaxed work ethic. However, I suspected the new officer would not be kind enough to grant this privilege. I also dreaded working with him.
With all these questions and worries racing through my mind, I entered my room and saw a message from Mohanji , “Are you free to talk?” Mohanji had promised to call me back after our school reunion but had been very busy with his travel and work schedule. We started talking about various issues. Suddenly, my senior came to my room and announced that there was a new order intimating a change in the appointment of the person replacing him. The new person was none other than a friend from Kannur! I couldn’t believe what had just transpired! My anxiety and apprehension had been taken care of and additionally, I had company for the long commute to work.
How did this happen, I wondered! I was completely relaxed now. When I conveyed this to Mohanji, he just laughed. But I believe I know who worked the magic!
All the above stories with different flavours of Mohanji’s protection only indicate the one and the same essence – Omnipresent Mohanji is always available and provides the shield of protection to all His devotees when someone reaches out to Him through thoughts, prayers or even a physical message.
The next time you sing Mohanji’s Aarati, the following lines will show you how accurately these lyrics were created!
Sankatmochan bankar, dur dukh karna,
Swami dur dukh karna
Apne bhakton ka haath, apne bhakton ka haath
thame tum rakhna, Swami thame tum rakhna
Being the dispeller of danger, O Guru, alleviate our misery, and keep on holding the hands of your faithful devotees.
