Guidance through dreams

Here are three beautiful experiences which highlight Mohanji’s statement, “I am always with you”. He understands the needs of every person who connects with him and fulfils their wishes or gives them the guidance needed to move on this path of pathlessness.

The price for gossiping is a heavy burden

By Dragana Tesanovic

“When somebody creates gossips, scandals; when somebody character assassinates another person, who’s responsible? Primarily, the person who’s initiating it is responsible. He or she ends up paying the real price. And it’s quite a huge debt, based on the impact it created. First of all, the person who initiates it has to pay a huge debt. Maybe it will take various lifetimes to clear. It’s absolutely not worth it. Secondly, the contamination that it creates in the minds of various people, who gets to pay for that? The person who initiates pays for that also. If that person whose mind has contaminated the reader, the listener, and they transfer it further; they also end up paying a part of it.” 

Mohanji

I would like to share my experience on this point. Even though my Guru Mohanji spoke many times about the price of gossiping, still I could not grasp the understanding of this important matter. I understood it intellectually, but never did I assimilate it properly.

Not that long ago, I was speaking to my friend, and I willingly indulged in gossiping and creating prejudices about certain people. Even though I am aware of Mohanji’s warning about the debts and everything, I still gave myself to it. That same night, while I was asleep, I got my lesson. The lesson revealed itself on Kailash (The holy mountain known as the abode of Shiva; symbolically represents the ultimate destination and the crown chakra of planet Earth; an energetically high spot; and one of the holiest places where the spiritual aspirants go on pilgrimages).

Kailash

So, as I am sleeping, I see myself in a very familiar place, but I know for sure I have not been there yet in this lifetime. The sky is darkish blue; I knew it was several hours before dawn. All the people that are deeply connected to Mohanji were present in this place. Mohanji was also there, but not physically. He was working on all of us, energetically, cleansing us, helping us go easy through this journey. We were at some kind of a place before we started moving towards Kailash again. 

While waiting, everybody was scattered in random places, sitting at tables with random people. I was sitting with my two friends, the same people that I had gossiped with about the other people that night. In one moment, they both flew away, they went somewhere, and I stayed sitting at the table. We were about to move, but the two of them were still out of sight. Then, because we needed to start moving, I decided to take their stuff along with mine. I dragged their baggage with me. It was getting harder to take each new step forward, as the things that I was carrying were becoming heavier and heavier. 

I was feeling helpless but determined to keep moving. My each and every step was hard, as my legs were like stones, my head dizzy. I felt a big pressure in my head, and my mouth dried out completely. I was still moving, but very slowly, more slowly than it was normal. Still, I felt Mohanji was supporting each and every single one of us on this journey, but it was me who did not want to drop these bags.

During this dream, I was aware that the reason this is happening was the gossiping and prejudice that I had been a part of, with those people the previous night. I learned a lesson that these things are making us heavier, and it is only logical that they affect the speed and the factor of lightness on our journey towards liberation.

The reason why I wrote all this is that I always wanted to remind myself of this experience and that hopefully, I will not fall into the trap of gossiping and having prejudice about anyone ever again. My dream was just a brief reminder, how painful it was to be slowed down on my trip towards liberation.

I am deeply grateful to Mohanji because, without his grace, it would not be possible for me to realize this deeply. I am also deeply grateful to all our Masters of the Golden Tradition of Liberation – Dattatreya Tradition – and to Dattatreya himself, because of their constant support and upliftment we receive, without any judgment and discrimination.

All Masters are one!

By Nirupama Chowdary

I completely surrender to my Guru and the Guru Parampara with deep gratitude. I am always protected and taken care of. 

The last few weeks were not easy. A lot of things were happening. I knew my Guru (I was initiated into the Nath Tradition before I meet Mohanji) Shri Shri Gulaab Nath Ji was not well. He was 94 years old. Lately, he was not even talking on the phone. All who have taken birth have to go. This is the reality of life. And one midnight, I got the news of his merger with the supreme consciousness. 

There was an urge to go immediately and be there for his samadhi at his village in Rajasthan. Due to Covid, travelling by local transport was not possible. And my husband was just recovering from Covid. So I couldn’t make it. On one side, I wanted to be there to pay my Shradhanjali (a tribute to the departed) to Baba, who brought me to the path of liberation, to the Nath Tradition and brought Mohanji in my life. He always said to me to be with Mohanji, that Mohanji would lead me forward and give me the answers I needed.

Baba always gave pointers, and one had to search and find out what it indicated, whereas Mohanji clarified each concept in simple words. Once I mentioned to Mohanji that Baba only gives pointers. Mohanji laughed and said, “Nath Masters are normally quiet, I am different. I talk a lot. Ah! I have a different agenda.” Both Masters complemented each other. Both for me are like my own prana. 

I was unable to go for Baba’s samadhi. Then I thought of going for the 12th-day ritual. But again, I couldn’t make it. I was in great pain. Baba always treated me like a daughter. I was praying for a miracle. Nothing happened. 

One night, I had a dream. I found myself in an open desert-like place. Many people were there, scattered around the place and talking in small groups. Suddenly everyone was quiet. And we saw Mohanji coming. With him were few people. Mohanji was wearing a white kurta and dhoti. I ran and bowed down. He blessed me and made me stand. Then he started walking, signalling us to follow him. He went towards the raised platform where priests were sitting. He sat on the asana (special seat) and signalled me to sit near him. No words said. Prayers began. With full attention, Mohanji started putting flowers where ever the pundit (priest) indicated. This was followed by a homa. 

After the homa, Mohanji asked me to bring my forehead forward, and he placed his forehead to my forehead. An electric current passed through my body. I was dazed. No feelings left, only contentment and peace. Suddenly I heard my morning alarm and was back in this world. As I got up, I realised Mohanji had come to Babaji’s village, and sitting on the platform with the pundit had done puja for Baba on his samadhi. 

Now I realise Guru and Guru Tatwa (Guru Principle) are one. In his subtle form, Mohanji not only fulfilled my wish, but he did a puja also, to make me realise that both Nath Gurus are one. Only we see them as separate beings. My deep gratitude to Mohanji, who made this experience possible. Each time Mohanji says I am with you, he keeps his promise. 

Always in the consciousness of Mohanji. 

A dream that transformed me with many messages

By Madhuri Araligidad

Being Sai baba’s and Mohanji’s devotee, on Sunday, Nov 8, I started doing a weekly parayan (saptah) of the holy book Shri Sai Satcharitra. In the morning of the 4th day of my parayan, I had a dream. It’s one of many, and it goes like this.

Along with my friends, I visited one of our lecturers’ home, where we enjoyed a lot of hospitality and spent much time there. Then we left her house and went to a lush green park which surrounded a beautiful monument. Our time together was full of joy, laughter and chit-chat. We took so many pictures and had some good food. The park was filled with many people like us, and all were truly having a joyous time. 

Suddenly, we heard gunfire around the monument, leading to a stampede in the surrounding narrow streets. We were all in a panic, and I witnessed some grenades falling in front of me, causing a massive fire, but somehow I escaped, unhurt. I got to see some militants with snipers in their hands in ambush. Luckily, they couldn’t see and harm me. After a few moments, I, along with my friends, reached a nearby bus stop which seemed a very safer place compared to the former. 

In that area, charity workers were providing food for the people who were the victims of this incident. The place encompassed tables and chairs occupied by many people and as such, we managed to sit on the floor and were served some good food with a bowlful of dessert. They served everyone with a lot of compassion, and there was no trace of panic on their faces or in their behaviour, which baffled us. We all enjoyed sumptuous food. After a while, everything became peaceful again, and there was no trace of attack that had suddenly happened.

We all gathered in the park again and started having a good time and forgot to make our way home. After a few moments, the gunfire started again, and we regretted not going to a safe place, our homes. Then I saw two fighter aircrafts flying above us and dropping missiles in the vicinity of the monument. Luckily, the aircrafts missed the target, and the missiles fell in a pond, which was a part of the monument, causing a huge surge of water. Right at that moment (even though in a huge panic state), we all got to see fireworks in the sky indicating our victory over evil. 

Meanwhile, a group of militants boarded on a four-wheeler, started subjugating people gathered in the park, and again, nobody was hurt. So many people, including ourselves, took refuge near the huge beautiful walls of the monument. Amidst all these horrendous acts, there stood a small Shiva temple in the middle of the park, not affected by any negativity, instead of radiating solidarity and valour. And I got to see a huge surge of milk pouring on the Shivaling, without anyone’s assistance, in the sanctum of the temple through an inlet present in the sanctum. With this beautiful scene, peace pervaded again in that area.

Around 7:45 am, I opened my eyes and woke up from my dream. Suddenly, I thought to myself, this is why Mohanji promotes non-violence and peace, and this very statement kept lingering in my head. The dream was so vivid that it took a few minutes for me to cope with the real world, and I just wanted to wipe out the entire dream, which was so unpleasant to handle. I’m penning this down because I don’t want to disown my experience. As Mohanji says our gross minds are such that they often dismiss and disown true experiences and Mohanji also says anything that transforms you, be it tangible or intangible, is real. In this case, though it was a dream and an intangible entity, it had transformative effects.

Messages I learnt from the dream.

1) Throughout the experience in this dream, I didn’t witness any bloodshed or any casualties. That meant grace was protecting us. As Mohanji says, “Grace protects you; it does not stop an event. Grace flows. It is pitched against collective consciousness. Collective consciousness creates situations. E.g. it elects the ruler or the king! Grace protects you from the sun but cannot remove the sun.”

2) If we completely surrender ourselves to our Guru, he always keeps us protected and unhurt. In this dream, I found myself completely unhurt and safe.

3) Through the charity workers, I got to witness how positive collective consciousness saves the lives of many and sends positive vibrations to the universe.

4) If we discard doership, grace flows beautifully. We should practice beingness.

5) How our thoughts affect the beings on Earth. Hence non-violence in thought, word and action are very much necessary to have a peaceful, prosperous and happy existence.

6) Being a Power of Purity meditator, I also understood why we should express our gratitude to inanimate objects. In this case, the monument gave us refuge to keep us hidden and safe.

May Mohanji keep blessing and protecting all of us. May Mohanji provide everyone with good health, wealth, happiness and peace. May Mohanji fulfil our selfless wishes. May, by Mohanji’s grace, we all practice positive collective consciousness and make the world a better and peaceful place to live in.

Oneness of Masters

By Sunita Madan, India

It’s December, the season that spreads good cheer and love. It is Christmas time to be precise. It’s always during Christmas and more so during Easter that I’m enveloped by mixed emotions. Most of the time, it is filled with Christ Consciousness.

Against all odds, I survived nearly two or more decades of my deep connection with Jesus and our Lady, the divine Mother Mary. The Hail Marys were always at the top of my tongue, and there was never a day without the Lord’s Prayer. “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name…”

The regular Novenas; attending mass; sitting in the Chapel for hours. Visiting the Jesuit priests, the Carmelite nuns or another particular order of nuns called the Daughters of Saint Paul. Visits to the Church for midnight mass, or reading the New Testament psalm 92, a large part of my life was centred on the great Master, Jesus. 

Born in a manger under the star of Bethlehem but brutally crucified on the cross with a crown of thorns which made his head bleed, nails dug into his physical body and hung on the cross. A great Master, who was whipped and forced to walk up the hill, bearing the cross for all of us.

As celebrations for Christmas begin, I think, love, and praise the loving Christ more and more. Easter is so different. Despite the resurrection of Christ, it is always a period of mourning for me. I could never accept the torture that humanity inflicted on my dear Jesus. How could they? So much pain, so much suffering for someone who was a saviour.

The hymns sung during Easter would pierce the very core of my being, especially when they sing, “They hung him on the cross, they whipped him up the hill, the blood came streaming down.” So the whole month of Lent would be me in deep Christ Consciousness, but I was not a Christian.

I was reminded so, time and again by many near and dear ones. But the connection was too strong to snap it. Perhaps it was the environment or the people who were in my life at that point of time which allowed this beautiful journey with Jesus. They were beautiful people.

I rebelled too as I took my children who were four years and two years to our Lady of Velankanni (a title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary), in South India. An arduous journey, but my intention was very strong, and nothing could keep me back.

I narrate this, as all this leads to a beautiful revelation which I wish to share with all you beautiful people. My roots were in Sikhism, and I was married to a Hindu Arya Samaji. All journeys, all paths, and their philosophical significance are beautiful. I imbibed all that I could and with Sai Baba’s saying, Sabka Malik Ek (God is One) in my heart. The glorious Sai came in my life too. However, the church bells, the carol singing, the nativity plays and decor, the minstrel evenings, always take me back to my world with Jesus.

It was in 2015 that I got connected with Mohanji. Though not having met him physically, the connection was very strong. The first-morning ritual was the reading of the posts. One thing led to another, and the connection grew stronger and stronger, so much so that I would dream of him many a time. I still had not met him personally. It was one such dream during my afternoon siesta, which brought about a transformation, deeper connection and changed my life forever in a big way.

Once again, it was close to Easter when I had this dream. I was, as I mentioned earlier that I would be in a state of mourning, feeling the pain, the suffering that Jesus went through. It was late afternoon, and in my dream, I see a great Crucifix in my room with Jesus hanging on it. I weep in my sleep in silence so as not to disturb Jesus. I quickly wanted to touch his feet and hold them; I wanted to extend my love to him.

I witnessed all this as I saw myself leaving my body and crawling on all fours to reach Jesus. I reached him and held his feet gently, looking up at him. He was dressed in a long white gown. I looked at him with deep love and reverence. His beautiful curly hair that covered his face moved, and my Jesus looked down at me and smiled.

IT WAS MOHANJI. I was shocked and transfixed. I said, “Mohanji, you are Jesus!” He said, “Yes, I’m Jesus, your Jesus,” and he smiled lovingly. I held onto his legs, and I wept inconsolably. My Mohanji. My Jesus. There is no difference. It’s a oneness. A great revelation for me. Such a beautiful revelation. I woke up, and the amazing realization dawned on me. I felt so complete. This beautiful feeling stayed with me.

Of course, during one of Deviji’s sessions recently where she asked us to visualize our spiritual Master, it was Jesus who appeared for me, and we both walked hand in hand up the mountain. I clearly remember the era, the people, the surroundings, and the attire. Perhaps I was there during that time else it wouldn’t be so real. Mohanji was also there ahead of us and we (Jesus and I) walked along with him.

So much food for thought, but my belief system was laid to rest. I found my Jesus. My spiritual Master. My All!

Divine guidance

Mohanji eyes closed

Priti shares with us a beautiful testimonial of Guru’s loving grace in times of pain and difficulties which she experienced when her niece Monika was very unwell.

By Priti Bhardwaj, UK

Just a little background to Monika’s story that I would like to share here as I feel tremendously grateful to our beloved Mohanji and Guru Mandala for the grace and blessings they have bestowed on her personal journey so far, and am sure will do so beyond her time here.

Mohanji and the Nath Gurus have played such an important part in Monika and her family’s life in the last 2 to 3 years without them even knowing, and this is the ultimate unconditional love Mohanji and the Masters have for all! Incredible grace comes – just a sincere prayer brought the Masters of the Tradition to this family! (The family are not into spirituality or religious in anyway). 

Two years ago, Monika and her boyfriend, who was driving at that time, were hit by a car that went into their side passenger side. Monika was unfortunately badly injured; her boyfriend suffered minor shoulder issues. Monika was told she may not walk and will have to wear a metal neck and back brace for a long time as there were serious spinal injuries. This was devastating news as Monika was a party person and it was very difficult for her to even sit in one place. 

Mohanji sent me as the first person to see her in hospital after the crash. Immediately I was guided to ask for Mai-Tri for her and prayers were performed thru the Global Prayers Whatsapp group, which was kindly heard by the grace of the divine energies. Monika continued to improve to the point that she actually started walking and attending work after four months, and she was even able to attend some parties.

I feel now with hindsight a very serious incident/accident was averted at that juncture; such is the grace of the Masters because she had unfinished agendas here on Earth. This, I believe, was extra time given to her, so she could spend time and make amends with her family and friends as 18 months later she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Amazing that she recovered from the car accident but unbelievable that this illness was diagnosed.

Again, Mohanji sent me to her, and I was guided immediately to seek Mai-Tri for her. This was performed within three months during the initial Spring lock-down and hospital delays. Monika’s cancer became aggressive. At the same time, Monika’s Dad suffered a stroke and is still in a convalescence home as he can hardly walk or eat solids. Calamity after calamity, but the grace of the Masters was always there. Grace comes when you have faith in the Master.

Monika, her family, relations and  friends became incredibly close, united in looking  after her with  limitless love and care making her every waking moment full of love which I believe kept her going. Couple of times the doctors would say that she only had 72 hours to live, however, the love that she was receiving from all 4 corners of the world and her strong will  to live till her last breath gave her extra moments with all her loved ones. Time and time again, despite all the painful treatments and the callousness of the cancer spreading, growing rapidly throughout her body, she did not give up smiling and greeting the umpteen visitors  who came to see her. She was always surrounded by bountiful of flowers wishing her well…..

After a couple of months of Monika having operations, chemo and radiotherapy to treat the illness, she gradually became worse. This time it was Subhasree who saw my messages requesting for prayers for both. Subhasree, despite a gruelling backlog of work immediately gave Monika Mai-Tri. In fact, by this stage MTM (Mohanji Transformation Method) was given, a deeper level of the Mai-Tri Method. This was indeed an honour and again, Mohanji’s grace! A deep trauma had led to this cancer. Mohanji completely cleaned the entire trash that had caused it. Mohanji does his job!

I was also guided to ask Mahesh to perform a Guru Raksha Homa for Monika’s family at the Mohanji Datta Tapovan Ashram in Canada, and certain Pujas were carried out in India during initial lockdown which lasted 7 hours despite strict curfews and shop rationing… all Mohanji’s grace!

During my many trips up to Birmingham to see Monika, on one occasion, we slept very late as the family were interested in knowing how and why these illnesses occur, so by the time I put my head down it was 3 am but couldn’t sleep as had a very strong urge to connect Monika (who was in the hospital at that time having a hip op as cancer had spread there) to Shirdi Sai Baba and give her Udi, but didn’t know how to do this…. Towards the end of the morning all my attempts trying to plan how to introduce Mohanji/Sai Baba to Monika turned out to be in vain, so I surrendered the whole thing to Mohanji and tried to sleep.

An hour later, I heard noises coming from downstairs. My sister-in-law walked in from the cold front doorstep. I asked her where she had been so early, and her answer amazed me and almost knocked me over.

mohanji sai

She said her eyebrow threading lady who was a Sai devotee had called her early in the morning and told her Sai Baba had instructed her to tell my sister-in-law to go to the local temple and take some sweets to Baba and leave it at his lotus feet with a prayer and some change for Sai Baba to look after Monika. Can you believe how my late night thoughts and prayers actually transpired and became a reality. But even there grace flowed, when my sister in law went to purchase the sweets the shutter to the shop was closed, due to open 3 hours later. As she stood outside the shop thinking where to get some of these Indian sweets, the shop shutter opened, and the shop keeper let her buy the goods. Amazing right?!

We also managed to get Manasarovar and Gauri Kund water to Monika, who was a complete non-believer in these things. (There’s always several deeper reasons as to why we go to far off places like Manasarovar and Gauri Kund – sacred waters came from my pilgrimage to Kailash with Mohanji 2019.) That too was pure grace.

Despite a being a non-believer, Monika was beginning to recite the Gayatri mantra, and the whole family were starting to see life from a positive angle rather than the gross negativeness. Is this Mohanji doing his magic? Yes!

Monika was an amazing fighter or maybe that Mai-Tri prevented her from feeling the worst of the pain. Whenever she was asked if she had pain, she said, no! She didn’t want to die in a hospital on her own and did what she could to avoid this. Her wish to come home came true every time.

I saw her couple of days ago although she was drugged up heavily on morphine and was breathless, we sang songs and my daughters, and I danced to her favourite songs from the late 90s (once a party person always a party person).

With the grace of our Guru, she died peacefully, and I am sure she is being guided as we speak to the light. Rest in Peace, my darling Monika. I love you. 

Thank you all for your prayers and wishes.

Protection through a dream

bandana white

By Supreet Bedi, Canada

I would like to share a recent amazing experience of blessing and grace.

Last week, which was early in September, I was browsing on the Mohanji Chronicles blog site, which houses the many experiences of followers, shared over the years. I happened to be reading one from August 2019 by Sakshi Gupta, (Healing Hands), where she narrates an incident when some construction work had been going on in her house, a window pane had fallen on her daughter’s big toe and how Mohanji had helped and saved her daughter. As I read her experience, I could feel her immense love and faith in Mohanji. 

I haven’t been able to meet Mohanji in person yet, and after reading so many devotees’ experiences every day, a thought began bugging me: would I ever be as close to him as some other devotees are, like those who are able to text or talk to him anytime? I began talking to Mohanji’s picture, and said, “Please don’t be inaccessible to me. I have no way to contact you directly; neither do I feel the need to. But please make sure my mental connectivity to you becomes so strong that I will never need to rely on any physical means of contacting you!” With this prayer, I ended the ‘conversation’… 

When I returned home from work, my elder daughter said that she had a dream in which she saw Mohanji along with another person, who although didn’t look like Shirdi Sai Baba, carried a begging (bhiksha) bowl like the one that Baba used to carry. Doing bhiksha rounds, they had come to her, and she had offered the person with the begging bowl a paratha (potato-stuffed flatbread), but he said, “No, I don’t eat that!” Then in her dream, my daughter ran back to the kitchen and brought back a plain roti (unleavened flatbread) for him. He accepted that and then both he and Mohanji left. As she narrated this, I understood the dream as an auspicious sign but failed to understand the real significance. 

Later in the evening that day, there was an incident. My daughter wanted to ride her scooter for 5 minutes, and in spite of my insistence that she wear a helmet, she refused, saying that she was only going to be taking 2-3 small rounds. Maybe it was a mother’s instinct or perhaps divine leela, but a thought crossed my mind that I must stop her, that she might get hurt. But I dismissed this thought, saying in my head, “It’s ok, Baba and Mohanji are there to take care, why should I worry!” And even as these thoughts were going in my mind, my daughter fell down. She slipped and fell hard, her face slamming down and hands hitting the ground. Crying out, she said, “Mom, I am not able to move my wrist.” Although she was crying, I was feeling very calm and assured inside.

As I soothed her, I recalled what Sakshi had mentioned in her experience about how Mohanji had asked her to give Udi (sacred ash) to her daughter. I too then gave Udi to my daughter and spoke to Mohanji internally: “I know that you are taking care and that you will do the best you can”. I then applied some ice pack treatments for my daughter, and her pain reduced quite a bit in just 15-20 minutes. I have a medical background, and on analyzing the many different possibilities of injury, I felt so grateful that there were only very mild ones! Her chin had hit the floor, and her jaw could have fractured, but instead, all she got was a little bump. Though her lip could have split, there was just a tiny bleed there. And while fracture in such cases is quite likely, I was convinced that my daughter would be fine.

The next day, when X-rays were taken, we found out that there was only a very tiny fracture. I am attaching the picture of the X-ray here – the cursor arrow shows the tiny fracture.The doctor said that though it was very small, he would still put a cast as a precautionary measure since kids move around so much! 

It’s been almost a week now, and my daughter is doing absolutely fine. We don’t even feel she has a cast because her functioning is normal. I am very certain that Baba and Mohanji took away something very big from her in the form of bhiksha! I remember Mohanji’s quote saying that Masters don’t interfere in our karma, but with their grace, the impact is reduced! I strongly feel that my Baba and my Mohanji took care of something very big and turned it into something very small. Mohanji not only saved my daughter but also assured me that he is there, taking care without me even asking for it. 

Koti koti pranaams (many prostrations) at my Master’s lotus feet. I remain so very grateful for his infinite unconditional love and care! May we all keep getting protection from our Masters and may we all stay connected to their consciousness to keep progressing! Thank you very much dear Mohanji!

Blessings Unlimited

Mohanji yelllow

Sreeja Ranjit, Ethiopia

“You didn’t come to me, I came to you. That is how much love I have for my people.” Mohanji

Whenever I read or remember this quote, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and have tears flowing down my cheeks. I come from a family in Kerala, India, where both my parents and in-laws do not believe in following a Guru’s teachings. So even though I was very religious and used to visit temples frequently, I never believed that a Guru would walk into my life and change it forever.

I always had the desire to do social service, charity work, and to help people who were in need, but was always skeptical because I did not know if it was reaching the right hands most of the time when money was donated. I never used to feel happy because of the above reason. I was working back then and did not know any organisation to go all out and to be among people to help directly.

During Power of Purity Meditation – Thus Spake Mohanji

Then Mohanji came into my life in February 2017, and even though initially it was through blogs and videos (I had finished watching all his videos and read all the blogs before I physically met him), the connection was already strong by the time I met him in January 2018, in a satsang in Thrissur, Kerala. I still remember I was waiting for the satsang from December onwards and was so excited about meeting my Guru for the
first time. My soul was rejoicing and my heart was so expanded in happiness as if I had found a treasure for which I had been waiting many lifetimes. I remember praying nothing should go wrong and that I should reach Thrissur from Cochin on time. Needless to say, my experience there was so profound all throughout the satsang.

From the time I met Mohanji, he has fulfilled all the true desires I had sincerely wished for. It was during the 2018 Kerala floods that I joined Ammucare, and we as a team could reach out directly to many needy people in distress and  I was feeling so happy because that innermost desire to serve was getting fulfilled. It is only his grace and experience from Ammucare that helped me to start doing the ACT activities here in Ethiopia from the very first week we landed here. People here warned us saying Ethiopia is not safe but I was not a bit scared as Mohanji had assured us that he is always with us and was taking care of us. He has always said,

“When you start taking responsibility for the well-being of the world, the world takes responsibility for your well-being too. Life is always reciprocal in kindness.”

There had been a phase just before we moved to Ethiopia when I was completely down due to an incident and I was constantly praying to Mohanji to guide me so that I could accept the situation with awareness and let it go. I was not able to forget the incident and every morning I was waking up with a heavy heart as I was more or less free at that time as my husband had just left for Ethiopia and we were to move there in a few months’ time. As usual, Mohanji always listens and one day, a week later, I got a request to write on the Mohanji Consciousness page. I was not sure if it was my cup of tea but I agreed as I felt I will be more close to my beloved Guru’s consciousness. I started writing and within 2 days the weight of the incident started reducing and within a week I forgot all about it even though it had been a serious incident of betrayal which had broken me down completely. I still feel it was a miracle that had shifted my mind from it. I became my normal self again in a few weeks’ time and it had lost its importance in my life. Without any struggle from my side or any self-talk, I had accepted the incident even without my conscious knowledge as a part of my karma and moved on.

During Power of Purity Meditation – Thus Spake Mohanji

Now, I’m coming to the present incident that happened recently during the 41 days of PoP sadhana. I love to do the Power of Purity meditation as it makes me feel so blessed and rejuvenated. Moving to a new country had forced me to do the meditation alone. Since I knew the importance of group energy during meditation for blockage clearings, I had an ardent desire for PoP to be conducted online as a group. When I enquired back then in December 2019 before the Covid-19 situation, I came to know it was not possible to do online sessions. Last month in June 2020, suddenly one day, I came to know that 41 days of PoP sadhana was going to be done online and my joy knew no bounds. Another desire in my heart was thus fulfilled in a few months’ time. Immense gratitude to Mohanji for making this impossible thing possible.

Registered with South Africa Mohanji Acharyas, my sadhana began beautifully. About 15 days into the meditation, I started getting severe headaches. The migraine was so bad that even with migraine painkillers like Ibuprofen, it would not go away. It would fade for some time, and come back with more severity. After each meditation, my third eye would throb and the headaches became unbearable.

Mai-Tri - Mohanji Foundation

Since it was getting impossible to bear the pain daily, I asked Mai-Tri practitioner Savithri Vasudevan for a Mai-Tri session. After the session, she told me a lot of blockages across lifetimes were getting cleared through the body. She told me once the blockages are cleared, I will be fine. But I was finding it so difficult to get up in the morning for the EBC routine with the head throbbing badly. 10 days continued this way and since it was not getting any better, I asked her for another Mai-Tri session. She said it is not required and later told me that Mohanji had asked her to work together with Mohanji Acharya Preeti Duggal. Preetiji, immediately messaged me saying that I should take Baba’s Udi in water till the headaches subside.

I did not have Baba’s Udi with me but have read many experiences of devotees in the Sai Satcharitra that it is the faith and devotion that matters. So I chanted Baba’s Gayatri 9 times, and drank the water mixed with the Udi I had with me. I got engrossed in my work and later within an hour or so found that my continuous headache of 10 days had reduced considerably. I was feeling very happy but decided I would continue to
take the Udi every day till I recovered completely. The next day, I got up and found my headache had reduced further and it was only like a very feeble heaviness in my head. Within 2 days, I was completely fine and my headaches had disappeared. They have never returned after that day and I completed my 41 days of meditation successfully. The miraculous power of Baba’s Udi cannot be explained in words. It was Mohanji who introduced Sai Baba to me and told me the power of Udi when my son had been sick. I have known all great Masters of the tradition only through Mohanji. I also started reading the Sai Satcharitra every Thursday. It was only with Mohanji’s and Baba’s grace that we could visit Shirdi for the first time last year.

Sai Baba – Experiences With Mohanji

I feel so grateful for all the blessings and grace that has been showered on me and my family and my only wish now is to always remain surrendered to Mohanji and the Masters of the Tradition so that I can move steadfastly on the spiritual path. Koti koti pranams to the lotus feet of Para Brahma Swaroop Mohanji.

The grace of a living Master

shiva

By Tanjila Akhter, Bangladesh

Namaste, I am 23 years old and I have a small beautiful family with my husband and a son who is only two years old. I have completed my Master’s degree in Nutrition and Food Science from Dhaka University. I would love to share my experiences and journey towards Mohanji and how his teachings helped me and transformed my life completely; and how my life became so open from any small and limited notions.

Even though I am from a Muslim background, now I have the same respect for all religions because I realise that even though our rituals are different, our destination is the same. We came from one Source and we will return to that same Source, and this actualization makes me feel that life is full of blessings and grace.

expereince

My spiritual journey started with my first Guru, Sufi Saint Baba Jahangir. But it was just a ritual at that time. Even though Baba’s teachings are very powerful, I found it very complicated to understand the deepest meanings of his core messages with my limited capacity and knowledge about spiritualism. My lack of insight was such that I was not able to understand Baba’s teachings about liberation, detachment, unconditional love, no expectations, silence, etc.

On the day (25th April), when Baba Jahangir took Maha Samadhi, I realized something very unique as if from the very core of my being a confirmation that Baba does not leave us, he is always with us and I felt his presence very strongly that day. Even though I felt his strong presence inside my heart, yet another thought arose in my mind about who would teach us practically when Baba is no more in his body! But I surrendered all my thoughts to Baba with the conviction that time will surely be the answer. A few days later, my husband and I came to know about Lisa who is also a devotee of Baba Jahangir and a Mohanji Acharya (even though at that time I had no clue who Mohanji was).

We created a WhatsApp group with the intention that we could have some discussions about spiritualism. We were 9 people at first. Later on, a few more people joined us. We started our satsang through video call and Lisa started talking to us about various aspects of life and truth. We continued for almost two months, attending the satsang every single day. Sometimes we discussed all night long, tirelessly. All of us started enjoying the satsangs as if a new zone had opened up for us.

satsang
Satsang with Mohanji

Now, this was entirely new to me and I was very surprised just to listen to all these various types of topics which were kind of food for my thoughts. My feelings were such that I had been hungry for this food for long periods of time and searching for this kind of clear explanations and insights which were extremely meaningful to me, and I felt like everything made perfect sense to me now. Later on, we came to know that these were Mohanji’s core teachings, which is the same as Baba Jahagir’s teachings, but Mohanji’s teachings were really easy to understand not only theoretically, but we were also inspired to do things practically.

For the first time ever, I realized each life is valuable in this world and no beings were born to satisfy my selfish desire for food, clothing, etc. From that day, I took the decision to become a vegetarian. Before that, beef was one of my most favourite foods.

One month later, I felt that Lisa should come to my house. I invited her and she immediately agreed, (I was completely unaware what great blessings were waiting for us) and on 27th May, Lisa came to our home and straightway from the next day (28th May) my husband, I and the other people who were present there became completely vegetarian without any effort.

I was totally surprised to see my transformation.  This would never have been possible if we had not known about Mohanji’s teachings through Lisa. For the first time, I could feel how cruel and insensitive we had been! Just for the taste of our tongue, we killed so many lives and this is a huge crime we are performing through our wrong traditional pedagogy. After becoming a vegetarian, my spiritual journey started to improve immediately.

lifestyle

My awareness became sharper than before. I even started realizing the main goal of my existence which I was completely unaware of before. I realize that liberation is my only goal, and I am ready to do anything to achieve this goal. I also realize that all my roles in this lifetime have to be played without any attachments which were never clear to me before. After Mohanji’s teachings, I have started practicing all these things deliberately, and with patience. I never knew that patience could be that hard for these practices, but I am so grateful that I am growing slowly but steadily.

Also, I have learned how powerful gratitude could be! Lisa recommended us to practice the Power of Purity (PoP) meditation every day and just listening to Mohanji’s voice made my mind so peaceful. Now PoP guided meditation has become my regular practice.

Also, I realized the mind factor, and how our own mind can be the highest destructive force of our lives, and with conviction and regular practice, we can even change the blueprint of our mind. In that absolute sense, we all have the power to destroy our comfort zones and make our lives positive and worthwhile by living and sharing unconditionally, which is an act of tremendous courage that we all have. We just need the right guide to give us directions and we are so lucky that in this life we found Mohanji. The absolute Truth in our life is our living Master Mohanji.

I am unable to explain my gratitude to Mohanji, but I am sure he knows my heart which is beating now by his name, all day and night. His name has become my maha-mantra (MOHANJI). With his holy name, one can participate in any aspect of life. This is my conviction. During the first few weeks, my mind was playing a game with me – what if I am doing wrong by trusting Lisa or accepting Mohanji as my living Master? I was a bit confused but Masters knows our minds more than us.

gratitude

One day Baba Jahangir appeared in my dream and gave me confirmation that Mohanji is my present Guru whom I came to know through Lisa. When I initially saw Mohanji’s picture, my first thought was he is none other than Moula Ali, who is our Imam riding a horse in a battle against all negative energies. And I knew that my journey had started with my Guru Mohanji.

On the 4th of June, Lisa inaugurated the altar of Guru Mandala in my house. What a wonderful experience we all had that day. Everyone felt Mohanji’s strong presence and we were all amazed at how Mohanji is giving us so many experiences without even asking. We could offer only love and we did that from our hearts, but Mohanji gave us everything, that love which we never felt in our entire life, even from our parents. On the same day, I saw Mohanji’s smiling face standing in front of my eyes and watching me always.

When we finished the aarati and sat down for the meditation, I felt that Mohanji was looking at me and smiling. Then two glorious faces appeared in front of me and both of them were looking at me with their bright eyes, with lots of light coming from them. A few days later when I sat for meditation, I felt that I was sitting inside Mahavatar Babaji‘s body and his body was as big as Kailash. After inaugurating the altar, I witnessed many experiences. Many times Mohanji gave me experiences through dreams.

During the time Lisa stayed at our house, for the first time, we visited many temples such as the Kali temple, Shiva temple, Loknath Baba’s temple, ashrams, etc. and had various types of experiences.

We also had the opportunity to meet a living Avadhoota, and this was later confirmed by Mohanji (we didn’t know the meaning of an Avadhoota until Lisa explained to us later on). Our experiences with Ma Avadhoota were so sacred. She knows everything about Mohanji, and told us, “Mohanji is Mahadev.” She is blind but she saw Mohanji through her third eye and explained how Mohanji looks like, and she prayed to Mohanji if she could see him in her lifetime.

Now, only Mohanji knows if he would come to us or not, but we keep calling him from our hearts. I want to share about my two-year-old child who has started chanting the Maha Mrithyunjaya mantra and keeps calling Jai Mohanji and Sai Baba all the time. We are really amazed to see how he could do that continuously. Almost every day, my two-year-old child goes to the altar and rings the bell, says Jai Mohanji and kisses him, bows down like a grown-up man, as if he knows everything that he needs to do, and this is truly beyond anything anyone can even assimilate.

It was beyond my imagination that I could have all these experiences and to have found my living Master Mohanji like this. I often wonder what I have done to have all this grace and blessings within this sort period of time. I have also learned never to take anything for granted.

I surrender everything at Mohanji’s holy feet as he is my protector, he will protect me and my family till my end. With this prayer I started my journey, and I will pray until my end. I would like to dedicate the first Guru mantra that I memorized, to Mohanji.

Guru Brahma Guru Vishnu, Guru Devo Maheshwaraha

Guru Saakshaat Para Brahma, Tasmai Sri Gurave Namaha

My encounter with Mohanji

By Vanita Bunwaree, Mauritius

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

Mohanji and Sai

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

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

mohanji3

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

THE FORGIVENESS BOOT CAMP

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

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

maitri

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

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

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

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

Power of Purity – 41 days

POP

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

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

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

Guidance from Masters

Mohanji smile (4)

These are two lovely testimonials of how Masters appear in our lives and take care of us through various mediums. The love and support of our Mohanji Acharyas in Canada are also very much appreciated by these two ladies.

Maureen Matthew, Victoria BC, Canada

I am deeply blessed to have two precious Mohanji Acharyas in Victoria BC, Canada. Through this challenging time of Covid-19, I have been guided to do 40 days of daily chanting of the Gayatri and the Maha Mrityunjaya mantras with my Acharyas. I felt the incredible vibrations within my being through this new experience even though it was on zoom. I was also graced by regular Mohanji Mai-Tri sessions with these two dear Acharyas. I felt so supported spiritually.

During this time, my deepest concern was for my 94-year-old mother in a Montreal care home, so I focused my heart energy on her loving comfort when she had Covid-19. I had many painful emotions, but instead of resisting them, I allowed them to fully be and practised letting go and surrendering to the Divine. Half the 160 residents in Mom’s care home died, while Mom and a 101-year-old woman were the only 2 survivors on the 3rd floor of the 3-floor residence. Remarkable!

I have learned a great deal through this grief period and am much more aware of egoistic noise that can create blocks. I am humbled and strengthened by the surrender process. I’m also forever grateful to have Mohanji’s love and guidance in my life and to be gifted with Cini and Eric, Mohanji’s devoted Acharyas.

May you all feel the power of Mohanji’s love in your lives.

Blessings, and namaste to all.

By Supreet Bedi, Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Baba’s leelas are never-ending! Recently I shared with you that I have been following Mohanji since last year, but not like a Guru, more like a person who talks from the heart and whose talks make sense. In the meantime, I also met one of the Mohanji Acharya’s in Canada, Sanjay bhaiya (brother). He has been very encouraging, going out of the way in his efforts to get me on this path. But besides Sanjay bhayia’s efforts, my mind was stuck, the only thing that used to come to my mind was that my Guru is Sai Baba, how can I follow another Guru.

I want to mention here that about a year ago, I had a few dreams of Baba. In one of them, I saw that I was walking down a street where there were two houses in front of each other. On one side, on the wall of the first house, I saw a big framed picture of Shirdi Sai Baba looking like a king, and in my mind, I thought maybe it’s a picture of a Raja (king) and as my eyes wanted to see Baba, I was seeing him. Now, on the other side of the road, I saw a man dressed like Sathya Sai Baba and again I thought, this can’t be Baba, he is no more, it must be someone pretending to be Baba, like someone in a performance. Then I turned my head to the other side of the road to confirm my vision once again and I then saw a small statue of Baba moving the neck as if dancing, and there were colours in the street like Holi (festival of colours) as if it was something auspicious.

During that time there was some turmoil going on in my career and I thought it was a sign that everything will settle down. However, things remained the same at work and nothing changed, but today when I think about this dream, I feel it meant spiritual progress initiation for me.

Coming back to the present, Baba patiently watched me doing nothing and then decided to take matters in his hands! For about 1-2 years, I had been having a very strong feeling that I have to do something but I was not doing it as if there was some kind of blockage on my inside. I started correlating it to the outside world; career, job, household work and my pending lists but after doing the required, nothing relaxed that feeling. I couldn’t control my worry anyway. In the meantime, Covid-19 happened and I was given time, but again I took to satisfy the needs of my family – cleaning the house, cooking new things, watching TV and sometimes even getting up late, but that feeling was still there and I wasn’t feeling happy. I started listening to podcasts by Deviji and Mohanji. I felt as if Baba was getting me closer to Mohanji, but again my doubting mind would not settle. I finally decided to ask Baba with chits in front of him. The answer came – follow Mohanji – and I asked again to confirm, and the second time, the answer was still the same and I said to Baba, if this is your wish, Mohanji will be my Guru.

mohanji-quote-doubts

I started following Mohanji from the heart and I started reading ‘Autobiography of Yogi’ as advised by Deviji on Podcast. I had read only a few pages when Sanjay bhayia asked me to apply for Consciousness Kriya. I read a little online about Kriya and I was kind of scared to commit to such a big responsibility, plus I didn’t have much understanding of the process. I asked Baba again and he said, go for it, so I submitted the application. It took me only 5 minutes to apply, meaning, without really thinking much. From my side, I submitted it but it never got submitted on the website and Sanjay bhayia kept inquiring if I received any confirmation and I said no. He said he would check.

By this time, I was progressing with my book (Autobiography of a Yogi) and started developing the feeling that I have to wake myself up and needed to work towards my journey to liberation. 4-5 days passed by and Sanjay bhayia told me that due to some technical issue the application was not submitted and I needed to fill it again. He texted me one morning at around 5 am. I was sitting in front of Baba and decided to fill the application. You would not believe this, that this time when I was writing everything was coming from the heart, I was crying while filling the form and I took about half an hour to fill it, the form that I filled in 5 minutes last time! As I submitted the application, I got the confirmation email right away. Baba wanted to shower the grace of Kriya on me but wanted to make sure I was eligible for it, and then 2 days later, I received the email for acceptance! Baba’s ways are always unique!

Many thanks to Baba and Mohanji for showering their grace on me and accelerating my journey to liberation!

Are dreams real?

walking

by Bhumika, Edmonton, Canada

Sai Ram!

Throughout my life, I have been a person of extremes. I have always had experiences with deep intensity. For most of my life, I had an opinion that this characteristic of mine, ‘feeling everything so intensely’ has not worked in my favour. In the fall of 2018, I experienced a significant loss that shook me to the core. I have been an ordinary devotee of Sai Baba. However, following the loss, my devotion toward Baba grew substantially. I felt a very intense calling and understood that only at his feet, I will find solace. Baba is so kind and merciful, the more deeply I longed for his grace, the more experiences he gave me.

From there started this journey of attempting to live life consciously and being aware. I started watching videos of Gurus and saints on YouTube. One day, a suggestion of Mohanji’s video popped up. It’s been over 18 months now that I have been watching Mohanji’s videos. I always felt this attraction toward Mohanji’s teachings, his talks. I felt connected with it, I found it practical.

This year March 2020, I had a desire to spend some time at the Dattatapovan Ashram in Toronto. I contacted Mohanji’s team and soon got a reply from Sanjay ji in Toronto. What started as an informal conversation has grown into a beautiful song of Baba’s leelas within a span of two months. Since then, Sanjay ji has been instrumental in my journey or rather he is chosen, for which I am very grateful.

I was very keen to get Baba’s Padukas home for good. I inquired from Sanjay ji how I can get Baba’s Padukas home. Within a week or two, he sent me Mohanji’s Padukas from Dattatapovan Ashram. Mohanji’s Padukas reached me on Monday, May 11, 2020, and I received his picture on Thursday. Everything was perfect and orchestrated in a timely manner to arrange the Asan for Mohanji.

On Thursday morning, Mohanji visited in my dream. I would like to share my experience which left me ecstatic and spellbound.

“Mohanji was here in Edmonton. I was introduced to him while he was eating lunch. After lunch, he asked me to come to see him. A plate was set in front of him. On the plate, I saw an idol of Lord Ganesha, Padukas, pictures of other Gurus (I don’t know their names). I was sitting in front of Mohanji, looking into his deep eyes and just soaking in the moment. Then I heard Mohanji speak, his voice changed to a deep husky voice of an older man. He spoke to me in Urdu and said something really fast (I didn’t understand). I just smiled at him and said, “You are my Baba!”. Then I was teleported to Shirdi. I saw Sai Baba standing in a field. I heard his voice. I was with Sai Baba at Dwarkamai, where Baba used to sit leaning on the wooden hand rest. He spoke to me about human birth. Then I was back with Mohanji. I was washing his feet and felt so blissful.”

This dream answered my silent query of loving Maulanas’ songs and feeling the joy of visiting Dargahs.

I have not met Mohanji in person yet, but feel so blessed to be accepted by him.

I want to share a small detail regarding the frame that is used for Mohanji’s picture. This frame has been at home for over 18 months. And we could never find something that would fit perfectly in the frame. It was waiting for Mohanji’s picture to arrive. What are the odds, for the frame to be empty for such a long time and Mohanji’s picture fits perfectly? This is not just a coincidence.

While I was in the bliss of these experiences, my connection with Alpa ji and Sanjay ji was growing much stronger. It feels as if I have known them for ages.

Following the visit from Mohanji in my dream, so much has changed. I am part of a chanting group. I have submitted my application for Consciousness Kriya. These past few weeks have been a testimony of what Mohanji says,

“When a Master appears, we will not remain the same anymore.”

The following week on Wednesday, May 20th, I had another dream of Mohanji. This time I was in the Dattatapovan Ashram, Toronto. I saw Mohanji flipping pages of a book or magazine. And I saw my picture in the book while he was flipping the pages. It was the same picture that I had sent when submitting the Consciousness Kriya application. I didn’t think much about it, I was just happy and blissful to have a visit from him again.

On Friday, May 22nd, I connected with Sanjay ji. In our conversation, as we were sharing stories of Baba and Mohanji, he suggested I write my experience. I shared my recent Mohanji’s dream. After Sanjay ji clarified what it possibly could be, I thought, “Isn’t this wonderful to have already received the message from Mohanji and now Sanjay ji was wording the message for me in a way that an ignorant fool like me will understand.” There is a higher force working. Sai Baba always used to support good thoughts and orchestrated events to bring good thoughts to completion!

I pray that this joy and blessings be bestowed on everyone. May his kindness and mercy give directions to all of us. May his grace always stay upon us and guide us. May he give me the wisdom and strength to practice his teachings in day to day life and offer this as Guru Dakshina at his lotus feet.

Jai Sai Ram. Jai Mohanji!

Protection during the cyclone

mohanji2

By Preeti Yadav, India

The year 2020 would be remembered as historical due to the coronavirus pandemic. Here in West Bengal, we faced another calamity The Super Cyclone – Amphan.

As per the Indian Meteorological Department, Amphan was to touch Kolkata at 5 pm and gradually head towards Bangladesh.

I am an Army officer’s wife and my husband commands a battalion of more than 600 soldiers. 200 soldiers stay with their families. It’s a huge responsibility as they are all under our umbrella. There are three other units too, but ours is with maximum strength at the moment. I prayed to Mohanji to protect all of us from the coronavirus and the fury of the cyclone. (I’m grateful to HIM for strengthening my faith as we had no coronavirus cases in the battalion)

It was 19th afternoon when I got a call from Deepali Bais (Mohanji Family) regarding a few precautions to be taken during the cyclone as she has witnessed a similar one in the past. Her suggestions were really helpful and we took all the necessary steps keeping the expected effects in mind. But still, there was so much of fear that I felt uneasy as the time approached. I am generally calm in difficult situations as I need to be with so many people under our care. But today, I was nervous and anxious after seeing the news. I was surprised by my restlessness. However we were all prepared from our end, but fear and uncertainty were looming large. We recently had a few new-born babies in the soldiers’ families (one day to one week old). So everyone’s safety was a matter of concern.

fear

It was at this time that I thought of Mohanji and decided to text him about the cyclone. I first complimented Amma’s and his pictures in the kitchen shared by George. They were really so cute. And he immediately asked, “How are you?” I replied, “Mohanji, we are waiting for the cyclone to come and go.” He said, “Be confident, nothing to worry, let me know if there are any difficulties.” His next question was of concern, “Do you have sufficient food?” (Just like a parent). I replied, “Yes Mohanji, we have sufficient food stocked. “He said, “Keep me in mind, I shall be there, stay calm.”

We all know that he’s always with us, taking care of us, but we still need confirmation at times. He said exactly what I wished to hear from him at that particular time. In chapter 30 of the Sai Satcharitra, it is said, “Sai knows fully the desire of his devotees and fulfils the same. Hence they get what they want and are grateful. So we invoke him and prostrate ourselves before him. Forgetting all our faults, let him free us from all anxieties. When he who is being overcome with calamities remembers and prays to Sai thus, will get his mind calmed and pacified through his grace.”

Mohanji Sai

All this conversation happened in the late morning of May 20th 2020. These words from Mohanji were really relieving. Since the morning, I was just remembering Sai Baba and Mohanji and was continuously praying for everyone to be safe.

Around 4 pm, amidst all the anxiety and fear, I fell asleep, completely unaware of the wind and the rain which were getting stronger and violent. I woke up at 5:30 pm, all relaxed and calm, feeling much better. I updated Mohanji again (as he had asked me to keep him informed) that the cyclone would reach our area at 7 pm. He said, “I shall be there, need not worry, I’m looking after.” What more could I wish to hear at that time? It was like Sai giving the assurance. I enjoyed my evening cup of coffee and lit the diya in my altar praying for everyone’s well-being. We spoke to our parents who were concerned after watching the news and assured them that we were safe. They were all really scared of watching the news and seeing the devastation caused all around the area.

The cyclone came, venting all its fury; trees were uprooted, electric poles broke, many houses got flooded. The sound of the wind was eerie but we were all at home, safe and relaxed. Soon there was a lull and we could just hear a heavy downpour of rain. We had our dinner and slept. When everyone else was panicking, we felt safe in his arms.

Before sleeping, I kept Mohanji’s card under my pillow. And believe me, after ages, I slept soundly. I woke up at 4 am (I’m an EBC member) and did my morning routine, luckily there was a little hot water left in the geyser with which I took a bath. I started reading my allotted chapters from the Sai Satcharitra (We do mahaparayan every Thursday).

The chapters allotted to me were 31 & 32. I would request you to read these chapters. A realization happened while reading and I share here a part of what I read. From chapter 31… “The devotees surrender themselves completely to the Saints, with the firm belief that the omniscient Saints will guide and help them in their last moments. He who does this and surrenders himself to the feet of Hari (Lord) will get free from all troubles and attain bliss. The Lord runs and helps him who remembers and meditates on Him with love and affection.” Reading this in the morning, I recollected the moments I was remembering Sai and Mohanji. It was Guru’s grace which made me remember him during my moments of troubles.

mind

Our human mind doesn’t accept things easily. We give reasons or call something a coincidence all because of our ego. We feel we are self-sufficient; that we don’t need anybody’s help. But faith and surrender takes us safely through even the toughest storms of life. When the cyclone was approaching, went to its peak, and decreased in intensity, everyone was in a state of panic, but we were enjoying a nap, coffee, chatting, and had a full meal together, feeling peaceful and protected in the Guru’s arms.

A lot of damage happened in the cantonment. Trees were uprooted, roads were blocked, water entered many houses, and even a tree fell and entered straight through the ceiling. But no one got a single scratch. Trust me, not a single scratch.

In the morning, Mohanji texted me to enquire about our well-being, and he said, “How are you all and your neighbourhood? I have been working the whole time.” On thanking him for all his grace, he said, “It’s my duty, and responsibility to take care of my people.”

This beautiful leela leaves me speechless. May his grace be on all of us. Immense gratitude to Mohanji, our Super Hero!
