The Power Of Blessings

Radha Sreenivas did exactly what Mohanji says in the above quote. With Mohanji’s blessings, she surrendered her thoughts and fears created by the mind to the Guru and immediately felt free.

Om Parabrahmaya Vidmahe

Shiva Tattvaya Dheemahi

Tanno Mohan Prachodayath

I invoke the grace of Guruji (Mohanji) for penning this experience as it has enhanced my faith in Him completely. He is my Father, with whom I can share everything.  He holds me as His child, protecting me, blessing me and standing by me. I offer this sharing at your feet, my Guru Mohanji!

It has been a long cherished dream of my husband to build a Shirdi Sai temple.  He soon located a land for the construction in a remote village. I was initially very hesitant as it was far away from Chennai (where I live) and I felt that I could not live in a village lacking modern facilities. My husband explained that he had a dream of Akkalkot Maharaj in that place.  I immediately agreed and all of us gave our 100% to make this dream a reality. Soon, 22nd of August 2018 was fixed as the date for Bhoomi puja or earth sanctifying ceremony.

In the meantime, in July, we received news that my son (aged 23 years) who was working in Bangalore had been hospitalised and he was in the ICU with blood in his sputum. We did not panic as he had a history of cystic bronchiectasis from childhood but proceeded to Bangalore.  When we entered the hospital, we found my son happily eating food from outside, amidst so many other critically ill patients. On enquiring with the doctor, he told us that he was admitted in the ICU as a precautionary measure since there were chances he could vomit blood again. Thankfully, nothing happened and my son was discharged after two days of hospitalisation.

On our return to Chennai, we happened to consult an astrologer about my son’s health condition because in all these years he had never been hospitalised as our family physician had assured us that it was a congenital condition. After getting the details of his birth date and time, the astrologer got back to us saying that the situation was very grave and totally out of hand. He recommended some pariharam – quick fix solutions to thwart the ill-effects of the planetary positions. This led to a panic attack within me. I was distraught and prayed to Shirdi Sai to save my son’s life.  I blacked out in a state of panic and grief engulfed me at the supposed calamity. I had thoughts of suicide and went into a state of depression. I prayed that my life should be taken away instead. I spent the whole night in a state of fear and became hysterical, weeping continuously.

However, the same astrologer called up the next day and assured us that he had placed the ‘prasnam’ (issue) again before God and realised that there was no threatening condition to my son’s health.  To gain more clarity, we consulted one more astrologer who assured us of the longevity of my son’s life and that there was no cause for concern. It was only a minor health condition.

Amidst all these, the Bhoomi puja of the temple was conducted as planned. We went again to Bangalore for the health check-up of my son. The same doctor, whom we saw in the ICU before, refused to look at his past medical records which I held in my hand and started speculating on the reasons for his health condition without doing any tests.  He categorically stated that it could be any major health problem. He also added that various tests could be done afresh and to await results hoping for the best. His attitude was one of diagnosing a health condition for the first time. Had he compared the old records with what he had taken in the ICU, he would have understood that it was a congenital problem and not alarming in any way. He could have saved us the ordeal and trauma that we underwent. My son was taken aback by his negative approach. When he came out he just asked me why he should go, when he was just 23 years old! This question from him completely broke me! I was mentally shattered. It is not a question a mother would like to hear from her son. Fear gripped me although I assured him that nothing was wrong with him and that he would be alright.

We took all his reports to our family physician in Chennai who assured us that he had no progressive affliction and there was no danger to his life. Two of the bronchioles in the lungs had lost their elasticity. This was definitely not life threatening as the condition had not deteriorated and they remained the same as they had since my son’s childhood.

But the hospitalisation, astrologer’s prediction and the Bangalore doctor’s negative assessment took a heavy toll on my emotional health and I started getting nightmares. I earnestly prayed to Shirdi Sai for a solution by showing someone who could take away my fears with an assurance about my son’s health.

Around this time in Oct 2018, my husband went for the Consciousness Kriya programme in Bangalore. He was worried about leaving me in this condition and arranged for people to be with me. Although I did not give it much thought, I asked my husband to talk to Mohanji about my son. Mohanji blessed him with an ‘Eye Card’ and advised my husband to give udi (holy ash) mixed in water to my son.

On his return, he took me to Kishore’s house (regular POP meditations were conducted here) on Diwali for an introduction as I continued to be restless, worried and living in fear. The following week, I attended a POP meditation at their house for the first time. It was then that Revathi told me that I could message Mohanji in case I had some pressing need. She also shared many experiences which gave me the confidence that I could approach Mohanji.

The same night, at 8.35pm on 15th Nov 2018, I messaged Mohanji about my negative thoughts and lack of peace.  Lo and behold, at 11.42pm, I received the message, ‘Blessings, blessings‘ from Mohanji. Immediately, just by reading the words, great calm and peace of mind enveloped me. From that moment on, my mind released its fear; negative thoughts just disappeared and I slept well. The words ‘Blessings, blessings’ had so much power… Mohanji had understood my situation and He had sent healing through the words and cured me. I realised this very soon. We are all His children and His grace protects each one of us.

Since then, I have attended all activities and POP meditation sessions in Chennai and find great solace and security in Mohanji’s love. My Mohanji family brother and sisters, Kishore, Revathy and Rekha Murali have always been very loving and supportive. After reading Mohanji’s posts and quotes on FB, I am very touched and have completely surrendered all my activities to Him.

With this surrender, an ardent desire arose in my mind to see Mohanji in person and to take His blessings. We came to know that Mohanji would be attending and addressing a public satsang in Thrissur on 27th Dec, 2018 and we immediately made plans for the journey.

The Thrissur meeting with Mohanji is one of the most cherished moments of my life. I was super excited to meet Him. After the satsang, I was so excited that I quickly climbed the stage in eagerness to seek His blessings much to the chagrin of my husband. But then Mohanji lovingly smiled and took a sweet I offered (I’d prepared the sweet at home and had taken it with me) from the box and promised to eat it. He also assured me most lovingly that He will look after my son. I could feel pure love and selflessness emanating from Him. Soon, I got another chance to get close to Mohanji on stage. My husband and I seized this opportunity to invite Him for the proposed Kumbhabhishekam  (consecration ceremony to homogenise, synergise and unite the mystic powers of the deity in a temple) at our Shirdi Sai temple and He most lovingly promised to come. My heart just overflowed with happiness.

As Mohanji held my hand, I conveyed my deepest wish to Him; it is my greatest wish that my entire family (my son included) should be with Him as His devotees. He said, “It will happen.”

All that I require is patience and I am 100% confident that this will happen, now that my Guru is with me. He has also assured me, “I will take care of him.” I don’t need anything else.

My heart overflows with love and gratitude as my Guru Mohanji is always with me!

THE SCAR OF RICHNESS: PART 2

Written by: Mina Obradovic

What have I done as a boy from that life to fall so low in my spiritual path and lose all what I have worked hard for? Where did Guruji go and why didn’t I have any protection afterwards?

This is a continuation of the previous blog THE SCAR OF RICHNESS: PART 1

“Let’s go”, said Guruji and indicated with His head that He is starting and He wants me to accompany Him. I didn’t know where we were going, nor I cared. I knew Guruji knows the best, hence I followed Him. I said, “Guruji, I have surrendered to you.” Guruji said, “Don’t rush. Wait for some more and say that again.”
I didn’t understand what guruji meant by saying this, but I continued walking anyways. After a few hours, tired of walking, we reached a temple of Lord Krishna, seated inside the green hills. Guruji led me to it, left me there and started walking away.
“Where are you going, guruji?”, I asked Him. “Didn’t you want to show me something?”
Guruji turned around and said, “No. You stay there.”
Even though it was unexpected for me to stay alone in the middle of an unknown area such as this, I obeyed Guruji’s words and stayed there in the temple premises as He continued walking the dusty road towards the open field. He went back to the house where we used to stay which was three and a half hours away from this temple.

vcm.org.in

Our humble ashram was small and only two of us lived there – Guruji and I. It had one humble bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchen. Guruji and I used to sleep in the bedroom on two thin and simple mattresses. Shayna was a lady who used to cook for us. She didn’t actually live with us (she lived with her mother in a near by house), but ever since she started cooking for us she spontaneously started spending more and more time in our ashram, either cleaning the altar, walking around or just sitting inside in Guruji’s presence. Despite of spending that much time in our ashram, she never forgot her mother. She took extra care of her and made sure she always has good and fresh food to eat, clean place to sleep and whatever else the mother required from her loving daughter. Shayna was always silent and through her silent nature I could learn more than through some people who speak a lot. She never charged anything for her services to us, and she was a deeply connected devotee of Guruji. Guruji never wanted to take anything for free, so He always used to bless her with much more than she ever gave Him. Although Guruji often seemed as if He doesn’t care about anything, including me and Shayna, we were somehow always taken care of by Him.

Guruji almost never expressed affection towards anybody, including me and Shayna, but there is no doubt that His love was beyond our imagination. Since Shayna started cooking for us in the proximity of Guruji, I witnessed her life transforming. Only looking back, I can see how much Guruji made our lives meaningful and how much of light and blessings He showered upon us. Like I said, His love might not have been recognizable to everybody who used to meet Him in everyday life. His “carelessness” sometimes used to lead us to wonder if He has any feelings at all. Most of the people considered Guruji as a mad man, a poor beggar or as a wandering monk. Some even thought that He used to sexually abuse Shayna, but they never understood the purity of the connection they actually had. They had the purest God-disciple relation which was hardly understandable by the prejudiced minds of the society. Shayna knew whatever people thought of her, but she was never affected. I believe she kept her divine connection to Guruji close to her heart without exposing it too much to others. For her, it was enough for that she knows the truth and that Guruji knows it as well. She was indeed a Saint. She always continued doing her job without any other involvement. Even her mother used to treat Shayna carelessly and used to convince her that Guruji is just using her kindness for negative purposes. Shayna always maintained respect towards her mother, which Guruji always encouraged her to do. Once, when Shayna was insecure on how to handle her mother’s impolite behaviour, Guruji told her, “A mother is the Divine Mother. A father is the Divine Father. No matter what, treat them as such.” Shayna obeyed to Guruji’s advices and, ever since He said this, she used to serve her mother with full reverence without complaints. She deeply believed that every mood swing of her mother is Divine Mother’s way of testing her endurance. Shayna never fell for these small tests and always remained as tranquil as water when it came to serving her mother. This way of service gave her many spiritual powers even without herself being aware. Her intention was pure and innocent, far away from gaining anything for herself.

One day while Shayna was cooking (at the time when the stories about Shayna being sexually involved with Guruji were circling in our neighbourhood), for the first time ever she said, “I love Guruji with all my heart.”

I indeed liked hearing those words from her, because she rarely ever spoke. Suddenly the strangest thought appeared in my mind, “Is there a chance that Guruji might be sexually involved with her anyway? They say a guru doesn’t have such needs, but is Guruji of that high stature already? Even if He is, maybe He is sexually involved with Shayna for some other purposes. The connection that I believe they have seems a little bit unreal to me, when I think. She is young and pretty, and He is old and looks like a beggar. Why wouldn’t He want anything sexual to do with her?”
I was deeply embarrassed by these thoughts for even existing in my mind! I didn’t like their vibration and I deleted them from my system immediately! I swore to always trust Guruji hundred percent and not to care about what He does and says, because I know He knows the best!

After Guruji left me that day in the temple premises, I stayed there for a couple of days holding the toes of Lord Krishna’s idol with my both hands and meditating on them. Guruji never taught me this practice, but He somehow conveyed it to me telepathically. I simply knew what to do when He brought me to the temple that day. These small signs of our telepathic connection were proving my connectivity with His consciousness. I was happy to see myself progressing, as Guruji and I started merging into One.

Days passed, and I telepathically felt Guruji calling me to come back to our ashram. On my way to there, I came across a man who used to give his old clothes to me and Guruji to wear when we didn’t have our own. His name was Gaada. He was a very good man, in his sixties, but what he spoke that day affected me negatively, in a most unexpected way. He happily greeted me and asked me about Guruji. I told him that He is in our ashram. He asked, “Where is Shayna?” I told him the same – in the ashram. Despite of Gaada’s pure intention, those two questions were enough to catch a spark of doubt towards Guruji (the one that arose within me a couple of days ago) and nurture more doubts to sprout. A bunch of thoughts kept poisoning my mind, “Guruji only cares about Shayna and sex! He has a need for it and He lied to me! What is this life about? Everything is a lie! His selfishness costed me my time and energy!” Crying in despair I knew these thoughts were not true, but I was too weak to fight them! I was trying hard to remember everything good that Guruji has given me until now, everything that He sacrificed His own self for – for me, but everything suddenly seemed unreal! Whatever I remembered ended up with a thought, “Oh, is it? May be all is just a coincidence. May be all this is not true.” A thought that I should have written down all the good things that Guruji gave me in my life pierced my mind sharply and I regretted badly that I have never done that. As I started to feel drained, my body started to feel extremely weak. I lied down on a stone and started thinking. I tried fighting those thoughts by bringing the logic out – “Guruji has expressed non attachment to the earth so many times until now, so why do I feel He has a need for anything at all? If sexuality is a problem, then let it be. Even if my Guruji sleeps with thousands of women, I will never doubt Him!” The negativity overpowered me, and not because they are more powerful than the positive, but because I knew no way to exit this situation on my own! I needed tools to avoid this trap of the mind, but I did not have any!

silverbulletin.utopiasilver.com

Today, I am happy to share these blogs with you, because today I have tools which are still helping me and which will help you fight the negative – tools that I have earned through blood and sweat, through THE SCAR OF RICHNESS.

After my mind was already contaminated, I rushed to Guruji in pain and feeling of betrayal, and I found Him calmly sitting on the floor in His usual lotus posture. I was screaming of pain, accusing Him of everything negative that happened in my life after meeting Him. Regardless of the fact that I could have chosen another 95% of the positive things instead of the 5% of the “negative” (they were anyway lessons that I chose to experience before taking birth), I anyway chose the 5% of the negative, KNOWING very well that those 5% were also REDUCED by guruji’s grace – before meeting Him the negative side of my life used to be 80%! I was crying in blindness and Guruji was sitting and listening. His physical expression said nothing, because of which I was becoming even more angry! “Why doesn’t He care about me?”, I shouted inside. He kept watching the show as I continued crying in despair. “You are a liar!”, I said and regretted badly. Nothing ever injured my heart like the feeling of Guruji betraying me, but, He never betrayed me indeed! His physical form was expressing no emotion. Trapped in the illusion that He is the physical, I believed the cunning entities who were silently whispering lies in my ears that He doesn’t love me. Guruji never liked any of His children falling into the negative, but today that was not at all visible on His face. His expression had no emotion, but the warmth of His subtle heart silently said, “My child, be careful, I am your saviour. Hold me and you will hold Light. Lose me and you will lose Yourself. I am You. I am Light.” With the dark lens of illusion and emotions before my eyes I could only see darkness, and could not hear Guruji’s innocent home calling! My telepathic connection with Him already started dissolving! I started losing Him… I started losing myself…

Only a few more loud voices of my mind pierced the silence. I walked away from the ashram without saying anything else.

Krishna – The One and Only Truth of my Life

Written by Deepa Nair

27th Aug, 2013

On the occasion of Janmashtami I wish to share the truth existence  experienced during last 4 years. It is Krishna and nothing else. But the truth was shown to me after several tests only. When Vivek, my son left his physical body I could feel the strong and loving presence of lord for the first time in life. Till then, completely lost in terrestrial existence I could never feel the love he was showering on me. On the 3rd day after Vivek left us lord came to my hand in the form of Bhagavatham. Ever since lord is guiding me with his unconditional love. Lord asked me to see my child in all the children and serve them selflessly. He showers endless blessings to his devotees.

Soon after Vivek’s death I got the fortune to meet lord as a young boy in Guruvayoor temple who assured me that Vivek is safe in his abode. But illusion is so strong that it keep on creating doubts in the mind of devotees. The kind lord answers all prayers of his beloved devotees again and again.

In the path of liberation whenever I stumbled, lord sent his representatives to pick me up and lead me forward against all odds. There are numerous occasions like that.

These tangible experiences prove lord’s immeasurable love and kindness for his devotees. Two of them I want to share with you.

Although I was getting profound experiences in POP meditations, I had doubts about possibility of hallucinations. Some external opinions added to it. I prayed to Krishna intensely for help. Shernazji was the instrument to clarify this doubt. One Friday I could not attend the group meditation and I meditated from home. Then  I had a beautiful vision of lord Muruga blessing me. Next day Shernazji took me to a swami who is in the consciousness of lord Saravana. Without any enquiry swami told me that he came in my meditation to bless me. He assured me that I am going to have a soul union with Krishna soon.

The next one is the most profound experience I had. I lost my son at the age of 38. Due to tubal sterilisation which I had done and my age doctors were negative about the chance of having another child. But due to intense mental depression I was not able to digest this fact and went for the treatment. There was no result and after one year I left that desire too. On my birthday on March 2012 Baba sent me blessings in a unique, miraculous way.

I had earlier mentioned about Mukundanji in Dubai famous for Baba’s consciousness. That particular day I was in a very bad mood feeling the emptiness and with a troubled mind I was spending the day. Suddenly I felt the presence of Baba with me and started meditating on him. I had a clear vision of Baba blessing me putting both hands on my head. In a trance state I phoned Mukundanji. Usually I never call him and he will not go to bless anyone unless Baba asks him. When I called him he was surprised. He asked me to come down from the flat. It was a surprise for me. There is at least 20 min driving from his place to my home. But when I reached down I saw Mukundanji waiting for me. He was taking the blessings to one of Baba’s devotees and when he reached near my home Baba asked him to give it to me. He gave me some rose petals from Babas garland in Shirdi and asked me to keep it with me in my bedroom. Baba’s message was to keep faith and rest is assured.

During the Kailsh Yatra I was cleared of many of my past lives karmas by Mohanji. Again in many dreams, lord asked me to keep faith in him and serve unconditionally. In the month of August I had the most powerful astral journey. Sree Sathya Sai Baba came in my dreams for the first time and lead me to the abode of Krishna, taking my hands. I wish I could share the beauty of that experience in words. I saw my child and many other children in lord’s abode. When my body was lying motionless in Sharjah, the real me was taken to different astral planes. I could feel the oneness among all, could experience the detachment and finally I had the bliss of merging to Krishna consciousness. Lord asked me to take pilgrimage with my family to fulfill certain vows and towards the end of it I got the miraculous news that I am blessed with a baby. We got Anagha Lakshmi on 22nd April, 2013. Now when I turn back and see the journey I can see that it’s all Krishna’s mercy. Again and again lord appeared in my life and he is the only truth. This journey will continue…

The power of pure devotion and selfless love can be experienced only with his grace. Even devotion is his gift. I am blessed with  the experience of lords mercy and love in day today life. I had doubts and had been judged wrongly for my devotion and love. But masters kept me under their protection. I had seen Krishna in my father, husband, children and above all in my guru. Today seeing Krishna in every being around me, I am able to face all the challenges with smile. “Whoever is your guru, surrender to the guru tattwa flowing through him”. Soul is much more powerful than body. This is my own experience in the path of truth and the messages I am getting constantly.

As a closing note I humbly invite the soul presence of all family members on the occasion of inaugration of “Vivek memorial hall ” in my small village. This too is a wish came true by master’s blessings. The inauguration is on 1st April at 3pm .

Wishing all of you Krishna consciousness.

Love Only.
