EMpowered by Mohanji – 11

Some of the participants share their little nuggets of inspirational and transformative experiences as we inch closer to the big day – December 4th, 2021 for Empowered 2.0

Verina Mohanlal, SA


I was introduced to the Mohanji family and path in 2020 whilst my sister was in the hospital recovering from post-C-section complications. She sadly passed away in Oct 2020, and honestly, I was and am extremely heartbroken. At times my faith was tested, but over the months, I kept reading Mohanji’s messages and watching videos, and as days have gone by, I have recognised myself accepting more. I joined this programme to connect better with myself but most importantly to find myself, and this week alone, decisions became clearer, procrastination became less. It is little things that have made a huge change in my life. I continuously am grateful and pray for a more enlightened path.

I look forward to meeting Mohanji in person one day and also continuing this journey!

Sadhana Subramanian, USA

Dear Mohanji, I am new to this path, and one of my friends introduced me to you and your various platforms. So far, I am happy with all the learnings that I am imbibing from you. Not sure I understand everything, but you actually answered so many of my questions without me even asking. I am able to connect a lot of dots based on your teachings. Thank you.

Cathy Johnston, UK

Exhilarating!

Clear, crisp and concise, bite-sized nuggets of divine wisdom. How lucky am I?

Trying to digest every word at each precious moment spent in Mohanji’s warm & benevolent presence misses the point. To just ‘BE’ in his presence, to wallow in his glory, to grow with his family, mere words can’t convey the enormity of the privilege I feel.

The only school desk I long to return to – will treasure my notes close to my heart. Jai Mohanji! My Beloved Mohanji!

Prajakta Sonawane, India

I am falling short of words as I may not fully justify what I have gained. In short, I have gained myself, which was lost in the last 36 years. Mohanji’s presence made me realise so many things, and one of them is his talks. I feel it is not me who is operating; it is Mohanji operating this physical form, and I am so happy to serve as his medium. Lots of love to Father (Mohanji) and all the M family.

Ankush Khandelwal, India

I feel that I got some very simple and more practical techniques that can be implemented to increase awareness. This was the most amazing experience. It felt like having one to one session and getting all the answers without asking any questions.

Runa Gupta, USA

I gained a deep sense of immense gratitude, reduction of tamas, one-pointed focus towards my purpose, a loving spiritual family and the Guru’s direct guidance. These words fall short of describing the wealth gained.

On Day 2, I was thrilled when Mohanji shared the Silent Technique because this was a technique I had instinctively been practising last many months and it felt validated.

After the workshop, I listened to the Shiva Kavacham when I started to experience my heart centre feeling softer and more open than before. Part of my Silent Technique practice was to look within/focus on the heart centre to experience the silence. However, I never felt that I was truly able to go deeper.

But now, I suddenly felt like a barrier had been broken, and I was one step closer/deeper to my journey towards the Silence within me. I could even feel the words of the Shiva Kavacham rising from the silence and sensed the silence in the gaps between each word. My heart was opening. I felt a gush of inexplicable gratitude to Mohanji, who is working on all of us. All that I had to do was simply show up for this workshop and be present for this time!

Regula Pfenninger, Switzerland

This workshop helped me gain clarity with a strengthening of purpose. I am automatically observing more of my inner self with the outside. I am grateful for all the guidelines we got in this nourishing workshop and the privilege of being able to participate in this program. There is less fear when confronted with problems that seem impossible to resolve. I feel very happy to learn and to go on learning.

Bhagyashree Parulkar, Malaysia

Honestly, I came to know about Mohanji because I am a Sai Baba disciple. During these 11 days, I was talking to Sai Baba in my prayers that “You made me (your Bhakta) to connect to NOW to MOHANJI. So tell him to hold my hand and show me the right path. This would be for me your direct confirmation. Give me some hint, Sai!”

And unexpectedly, during this workshop time, I got udi sent from Shirdi! I live in Malaysia, and so during this time, getting Udi from Shirdi was a big promise and assurance from Sai to me confirming, “You are on the right path.”

Prafulla Chandra Bansod, India

It can’t be summed up by words. I believe it’s a continuous relationship that I have with Mohanji now, on my journey in this life, where he looks after me in all aspects. I feel very secure and experience different aspects of myself strongly, and I am accepting it with prayer and trust every moment. I have surrendered myself at his feet. Let Mohanji take care of me!

Tihana Frleta, Hrvatska

I am very grateful to Mohanji for this opportunity. I already feel a big change in perception and acceptance; I feel his energy flow helping me to get rid of unnecessary patterns and be more authentic. I’m already attuned to his advice to feel others more. Also, I find it very interesting that my work schedule matched to follow the whole program live.

BHATT NEELA, UK

From the beginning, it feels like receiving a hug in the form of Mohanji’s energy that stays with you continuously. In one session, he made me feel whole again. When he smiles at you, you know that he is with you.

Nirmal Saini, Australia

Mohanji changed my life totally. I have so many experiences and transformations that you brought into my life. When I connect to Mohanji mentally or physically through this online program, I always cry a lot. I feel I just want to be with him—so much energy around me. My body gets tuned into energy in his presence (the body spins and sways like a pendulum). Most of my answers I get when I listen to him and sometimes through thoughts while in his presence. I am looking forward to going deeper in silence in the presence of my beloved father, Mohanji. Love you, Mohanji!

Katarina Knežević-Nikolić, Serbia

I am deeply grateful for this gift. It comes at more than the right time in my life and helps me tremendously on my path of liberation. Somehow, on my path during the last couple of years, I have focused more on helping other people actualise themselves, and forgot about myself, lost my connection and my brightness which created challenges. I am grateful for being reminded of who I am and what is necessary to continue my journey into the light and be the light. Love.

Tamara Tapić, Serbia

I feel encouraged, supported on my path in my insecure baby steps. I am learning by example since Mohanji is pure love and kindness that I can feel. He is providing clear guidance about what, why and how. I feel truly empowered on the long journey in front of me.

EMpowered by Mohanji – 9

Happy Diwali to all of you from the Testimonials Team!

As the countdown begins for Empowered 2.0, here are some transforming experiences from participants of the first Empowered workshop that was conducted in September!

Nikita Naredi, India

The lid of Pandora’s box got opened!

I never realised I was Pandora’s box of so many emotions, patterns, and inadequacies. I knew a few of them; a few kept surfacing now and then, and the resolve to sort them out was always there since my encounter with and blessings of Mohanji. It would surface with so much impact I could never imagine till 2nd September when the Empowered workshop began.

Since the time I joined this program, I felt I had been put in a washing machine in the spinning mode and believe me, the spinning is very, very palpable. The scum is coming out, and the awareness is profound.

Every participant would be having their own share of a rollercoaster ride, but mine is presently only of negativities. I started understanding my negativities and realised they are patterns repeating over and over again, and Mihanjis golden words brought about a great acceptance.

I had no out of the world experiences which many participants have quoted: no feeling of warmth, no visualisation but only realisations and acceptance.

Through this program, I got the courage to speak out my infirmities to myself, my spouse, and my child, which I would earlier feel very inhibited and ashamed to talk and discuss. 

I indeed feel empowered and going through the recorded videos again and again for better clarity and really looking forward to Empowered 2. 

Amala Sankar, Kerala

I had this true feeling of Guru’s energy entering into my heart centre. Now the heart beats with the Guru. Each moment I look inside me, I can see the light of my Guru handed over to me, making it brighter. This has been essential for me this time; it is Sai Baba’s blessings to me. Faith in Baba connected me with Mohanji. I’m very happy now and feel more focused. Koti Koti pranamams, thank u Mohanji and team. Lots of Love. 

Each and every moment of my life has become more worthy, and I am trying to make myself worthy. Many thanks for your blessings. This program helped me to find what I was searching for the past few years. I was trying to discover myself, and now it finally happened. The process of purification started 11 days ago with God’s grace, the true feeling of Baba hearing my every thought and blessing me when the time arrived. 

Love you, Mohanji!

Carla Hartog & Bas van Velzen, The Netherlands

I feel immensely grateful to have joined Mohanji’s workshop. Especially after his spontaneous visit to our temple, the program was again a blessing and a boost to my/our spiritual path. The PAUSE technique is really helpful! The emphasis on commitment, conviction, consistency is ‘ringing’ in my head. Just once, on the 10th day, I felt discouraged. I had thoughts, “I am stuck in this cycle of birth & death; please HELP!” Thank God, it lasted just for a day. Overall, I need to absorb, contemplate and be alert to go by the flow and go beyond comfort zones. I am looking forward to participating in the next workshop. We have registered already. Meanwhile, there is a lot of work to do, and we’ll stay connected! Thanks, Subhasree, for all your dedication to the work and thanks to all the volunteers.

Maria Lopatina, Australia

And here I begin! More and more, I believe in divine timing, and meeting Mohanji and being part of this beautiful community is not a coincidence. I always dreamt of having a spiritual guru, although I was not actively looking for one, but just trusting the Universe to send me one. Just the day before the Empowered 1.0 workshop, I called my friend to chat. Although we don’t meet and speak with each other often, she is the one true friend you can count on. I hope she feels the same. She passed me the info about the Empowered program. When I looked at it, I felt no hesitation and signed up straight away. 

From day 1, I felt a strong connection with Mohanji; every word by Mohanji was a great reminder and an awakening. The exercise on day one showed me the areas that I need to work on: discipline and patience. I think Mahonji had a strong effect on me from the first day! The next morning, I began waking up with no alarm between 4 and 5 am, meditating, sitting in a lotus pose without changing for an hour or more, where I would previously struggle to sit for 15 minutes. It’s a miracle, and I believe Mohanji has something to do with it. Through the program, I got all the answers without asking any questions.

I struggled in the last three days to keep myself awake, but it seemed like when I needed to hear something important, my eyes were open, and my ears were listening. I could continue to share many things; the most important thing is I thank the Universe for such a gift. My dreams are comings true! Mohanji, I instantly fell in love with you. You are amazing, and you have an amazing team.

My ride with Mohanji

my ride with mohanji

By Chakradhar Yakkala, Switzerland

I met Mohanji for the first time in October 2017 and have been meeting him regularly since then. More than the teachings and the worldly activities of Mohanji, what attracts me to him the most is the stillness he carries and the energy he exudes. Every time I visit him, I just plug into his silence, and I enjoy that silence within myself so well. It is like a drug for me, intoxicating and invigorating but never incapacitating. In addition to that, he always pushes my awareness a notch higher every time I meet him.

Earlier this year, I attended the retreat that happened in Istanbul in February 2021. I learnt and practiced Conscious Gapless Breathing there for the first time. One day after finishing that practice, as I lay down, as usual, to relax (with closed eyes), Deviji played some soft music. During that period, my breath rate dropped below a certain threshold. As one’s breath and mind are interconnected, not a single thought occurred on my mindscape while the awareness was at its peak. In such a state, I saw an expanse of a blue-colored matrix that had no limits. It was all-pervasive, and various forms were appearing and disappearing on it. I could not recognize any of those forms except Mahavatar Babaji. He appeared briefly, and His gaze had immense love, which I could never articulate in words. If he had continued that gaze for a little more time, I would have definitely gone mad with love.

I enjoy travelling, so after the retreat, I planned to travel across Turkey. After a few days of my solo travel, I felt dull and had severe body aches. I ignored them and pushed myself to quench my thirst to explore without listening to my body. After 90% of my expedition, I reached Izmir, a metropolitan city in Turkey.There I was struggling to talk and developed a persistent cough. I tested myself for Covid-19, and as one would expect, I was tested positive. I isolated myself in a hotel room and took the medication given by Turkish Government health care workers. I suffered from a severe cough and intermittent labored breathing.

I informed Mohanji of my situation, and he wrote back reassuring me that he is with me and watching over me always. He blessed me and asked me to connect more to his form. Thus, I spent a significant amount of time each day just looking at his picture. At this time, I recalled an event that happened during the retreat in Turkey. During our 1-1 time with Mohanji, he gave me a powerful mantra and asked me to chant it every day. That mantra is about being free from all kinds of diseases and having perfect health. I felt that he must have foreseen the situation that would take a toll on my health; hence, he gave me that mantra.  

A few days later, the cough became persistent, and every time I coughed, it felt as if somebody was piercing me with a knife in the diaphragm. I received a message from Mohanji during this time. He wrote I had a severe attack, but he had reduced the intensity of it.The same evening, my breathing was severely impaired, and I had to call for an ambulance to get admitted to a hospital in Izmir. The following morning, I felt it was time for me to go back to the soil. I could accept the severe bodily pain I was going through but could not accept dying in pain, as I had always dreamt of dying in a blissful state. So I wrote to Mohanji, “If I have to die, please make me free of pain”, as I did not want the pain to be my last experience of life. Mohanji replied that he is doing everything he can about my situation, and there was no need for me to worry.

I stayed for almost a week in the hospital on oxygen support.  I constantly watched another Covid positive man that was sharing the room with me. He was in his 70s or 80s, suffering terribly, and looked like he might die any moment. Whenever I felt a bit low, I would close my eyes and visualize Mohanji in the center of my forehead. I would experience a strong presence of him and in no time would feel normal again. After I got discharged from the hospital, I informed Mohanji of my status, and he told me that the worst is over, and I am on the road to recovery. He also mentioned that a lot of cleansing has happened, and a sort of re-birth will occur.

After getting discharged from the hospital, beginning of a new life

From the time I tested positive, my friend Judith from Switzerland wrote to me daily to check how I was doing, updated Mohanji regularly of my status, organized prayers and Mai-Tri sessions for me, where Mai-Tri practitioners from Switzerland and UK took turns and did Mai-Tri for me on a daily basis. She played the role of a Mother when I needed help the most, and I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to her and all the people who prayed and performed Mai-Tri for my recovery.

Once I returned home to Switzerland, I noticed that no matter what was happening in my life, I was just in gratitude all the time for still being alive. The most precious thing in our life is that we are alive, and most people tend to forget this and take life for granted (and expend a lot of time indulging in petty emotions). There is no guarantee that we are going to live next moment, so be grateful that you are alive now. Every morning I would wake up, look at Mohanji’s pic in my bedroom, smile and remind myself that I am still alive. One day when I woke up and smiled looking at Mohanji’s pic, he sent me a telepathic message, “Look, look.” At that very moment, my awareness got absorbed inward. I could see that although my body was awake, my emotional and psychological structures were dormant (literally sleeping) within me. I could see some energy (like electricity) flowed through those latent structures, and only then, they became alive and awake within me. This process happened within a span of few seconds after waking up.

Thus, my experiential understanding shifted from “I am this body and mind” to “I am the energy that is empowering this body and mind.” There is a world of difference between knowing this fact theoretically by reading some books or listening to some Masters and knowing it experientially. Once your identification shifts from the body and mind to the energy that flows through them (even for a brief period of time), you become inclusive in nature because you realize that it is the same energy that is flowing through and empowering every being.

After a considerable amount of recovery post Covid, I started practicing Conscious Gapless Breathing again. One day while I was lying down and relaxing after the practice, I wanted to get up but could not. Instead, something else got out of me, and I was witnessing myself in a different space. That space was just empty, slightly grayish, a little dark, and was extremely powerful. I was looking at myself sitting in that space and was observing the central axis in me. As I sat there, I remembered my friend and tried to transmit that power to him also. Sometime later, I did not know how to return from that space to my body as I have not figured out the mechanics of life yet. So, within myself, I said, “Mohanji, Mohanji, Mohanji”, and I was able to get back to my body from that space. Only then I could actually move my body and get up from the floor.

Recently, I attended the retreat in Montenegro. I went to Mohanji to thank him for being with me when I needed him the most. His words were, “So you went to hell and came back.” The following day, Mohanji said, “I heard that you were crying a lot”, referring to my struggle during Covid. I replied, “I thought it was time for me to go.” He then said, “It is a good practice, right? Now, when the time comes to go, you are already prepared!” I agreed affirmatively.

The following day of the retreat, the participants that were leaving early were told to come and receive Shaktipat (energy transfer) from Mohanji. When I went to receive Shaktipat, he said to me, Chakradhar, you are leaving! Why are you leaving? I hesitantly replied that I wanted to travel and explore Croatia, and that is the reason for my early departure and not participating in full retreat. Then he said to me, “You should go where your soul guides you, not where your mind guides you. See, you previously went where your mind guided you in Turkey, and you fell sick; before that, your soul guided you, and you were healthy, right?”

I said to myself, all these Gurus use heavy vocabulary such as soul guidance, guidance from the higher self, etc., and I have no clue what they talk about. I went up to him a few minutes later and asked, “How do I know if the soul is guiding me or the mind is guiding me?” He said that it is very simple. “If your mind is guiding you, it is seeking for repeated experiences and pleasures; if your soul is guiding you, it is seeking for transformation and silence.” These words were so simple, yet so profound. He then added, you are a scientist right; this is elementary stuff!

I left for Croatia and was happily exploring city after city. The last stop in my itinerary was Plitvice Lakes National Park, which is a 295km2 forest reserve, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there in the midst of nature. On my last evening there, I walked to a restaurant that was 30min away from my accommodation. On my way back, I felt like walking a bit in the forest before returning to my hotel. I walked on a well-demarcated path on the periphery of the forest for some time.  I saw some marked trails that led into the forest, so I took a turn and walked alone as there was no one around. The marked trail ended at a certain point inside the forest, and I was supposed to go back on the same marked path where I had come from.

I have always had a wild streak in me since childhood. Very few people in my life have seen that side of me. As a result, I have experimented quite a bit in my life and with my life. Sometimes, it turned out to be great and, at other times, terrible, but I have always learnt some amazing lessons. Instead of walking back, I entered the forest. I said to myself, “Although it is an unmarked territory from here, let me explore it. If I continue in this particular direction, I will still reach my accommodation, but through the forest. I have already walked this far in this direction, and I do not want to turn around now. Let me walk all the way!” Thus, I continued to walk inside the forest for almost an hour in the direction I thought was right.

Then, it dawned on me that somewhere I made a wrong turn and have walked deeper into the forest. Otherwise, it should not have taken this long for me to reach my accommodation. I had no clue where I was, and it was already 7:15 PM, and the sun was about to set. A bit of frustration, and a bit of fear started to creep in. I visualized Mohanji in my heart center and asked him, “Could you please guide me?” He guided me to walk in a particular direction. I walked in the appointed direction for approximately 40 minutes. I felt like I had arrived nowhere. By then, I already got a few cuts and bruises, and the heel of my right foot was bleeding continuously. I felt a bit dejected, not able to clearly figure out which way to go. I again got a message from Mohanji, “Keep walking son, even if you do not see any clear path, keep walking in the same direction I showed you.” I continued walking for 20 more minutes in that direction and stopped again, not knowing if I was doing the right thing. Once again, Mohanji sent me a message, “Keep walking, son; you are almost there.”

I continued walking for 15 more minutes. I was so dehydrated that the surface of my lips started to peel off (I neither carried any water nor I had come across a pool of water in that part of the forest I walked). On the other hand, that forest is home to bears, wild dogs and wolves. I took out my phone that was running out of battery and thought of calling the owner of my accommodation. I wanted to inform him of my status in case I managed to survive the night with wild animals and dehydration, so he could send a search/rescue team the following morning. Once again, I felt the message from Mohanji, “Continue in the same direction for ten more minutes; if you still do not see anything, make a phone call, but not now.” So trusting the message, I continued for another 10 minutes, and to my amazement, I reached the village where my accommodation was, just 5 minutes before it became completely dark. Only then, I understood why Mohanji said to me in Montenegro, “Do not go where your mind guides you!” Hahahaha!

Although my story appears to be different on the surface, on a deeper level, I feel that it is very similar to the stories of most people. Most of us walk into traps; somebody who has a physical compulsion will walk into one sort of a trap, another with an emotional compulsion will walk into a different sort of a trap, and similarly for the one with psychological compulsions. The bottom line is that unconsciously most of us walk into traps; what kind of a trap you walk into differs based on the predominant constitution you carry. Moreover, in many cases, by the time one realizes that they are stuck in a trap, they might have dissipated a significant amount of their lifetime and life energies. The only way to avoid it is to enhance your awareness and to connect to a higher frequency that will nurture, assist and facilitate the evolution of your awareness.

Finally, I would like to thank Mohanji immensely for always making my perception and awareness evolve, and would like to stress the fact that if someone connects to him, he is available to that person always. One needs to have the necessary subtlety and receptivity to recognize it and cherish it. 

The Master who never leaves your hand

Lessons living with Mohanji – days 41 & 42

By Christopher Greenwood

Day 41 Lesson – Round-up of the 41 days – If there’s a transformation, it’s worth it 

Good morning, everybody. 

Today is day 41 of the ‘Lessons Living with Mohanji’ series. Firstly, I wanted to say thank you so much for everybody’s support and the private messages that have been sent. I didn’t have any expectations on how far this would reach people. I’m really happy to contribute to our global family in this way, especially if it’s helping with the connection to Mohanji and our purpose because we have a lot to do in the world. 

Mohanji reminds me of this constantly: what more can we do? How can we improve everything? We have great platforms, and each of them has its vision, purpose and objective in the world. How can we use them to reach more people? 

Mohanji gives clarity and guidance for this constantly so that raising awareness and the collective consciousness of the world can be achieved. He said before that he’s here to bring Satya Yuga, the Golden Age, to Earth. In satsangs and here in the house, he’s clarified a few times that actually Satya Yuga already exists. It never left. It’s a frequency, a higher frequency we can connect to. For this to happen, we collectively need to start living the highest potential of human existence – kindness, compassion, unconditional love. 

This is a potential inside us all. Mohanji is available to take us there. But as I’ve mentioned before, he says that it’s for us to walk; he can only guide us, but he’s holding our hand on the way. 

Over the past days, I’ve spoken about the beauty of the Mohanji platforms as opportunities for our purification and for giving back our skills to the world, which benefits us and our entire lineage. What we invest in now will serve us and the future generations to come. I think it’s worth it. 

I’ve also shared many messages about the operating stature of Mohanji as I experience him. There is no nonsense; there’s only today, no postponement, no delay, no procrastination – it’s now. Also, before being spiritual, he’s more practical, and he doesn’t rest. It is a fire in the house: we either move and transform, or we get burned. There’s no “Okay; maybe I’ll be doing this”. It is being fully committed, or maybe it’s not the right thing for us. 

I’ve shared some overview of the house, daily life, interactions with family, his parents, and all the beings around the house. There’re also some extra dimensions of his work, which aren’t completely perceivable to me, but I know they exist. They are becoming more apparent; the longer I stay here, the more I can observe. 

As today marks 41 days, I wanted to focus on transformation. This is probably the main lesson I’ve been able to take from my time here and from my life generally. Since I’ve been connected to Mohanji, there’s been a transformation in my life for the positive. Sometimes there have been big turbulences and quite challenging situations. As soon as I connected to Mohanji, lots of things started to shift in my life. But what I found is that by keeping steady, understanding what purpose I set for myself, accepting situations as they come, riding with that flow of life – there’ll always be a positive outcome at the end. 

Now, I would say that I’ve come from a relative depth of unconscious existence. I used to spend the majority of my time just crashing through life, from one experience to the next, chasing them. Many of them have been drunk, unconscious states. But now, there’s much more clarity and contentment in my life. I hope that listening to these messages would have helped me share that transformation with you all.

Mohanji has been open about this, too. He said that unless there is a transformation for you, it’s not worth being here. Especially in regards to me staying here, he said, “If it’s going to become too much for you and it starts to become a burden and suffocation, then maybe now it’s not the time. I don’t want to make people crumble; I want people to have a happy life. But if you’re willing to transform, then I’m happy to take you to the highest, or wherever you can reach”. He also said that he’s not here to make followers; he’s not interested in collecting more followers. He’s here to make masters. So, it will be our own progress that will be a benchmark of our connection, conviction and our alignment with this path of liberation. 

He also mentioned that transformation doesn’t have to be dramatic so as to become enlightened straightaway. Even if we’re shifting from a lethargic and no-movement state to one where we have purpose and are taking small steps, it’s worth it. Even if it’s about becoming less angry or less affected by situations of the world, it’s worth it. 

So, I’ll end the recording today with an open “Thank you” to Mohanji for all he’s done for me personally, for the opportunity that I have to speak with you all, and for his kindness and friendship, for the time that I’ve been here with him in Bangalore, as he’s looked after me so well—even with the basics, providing shelter, great food, and deep companionship. 

I had intended to conclude these sessions after 41 days. I didn’t intend to carry on. But as there are people here willing to listen, I’ll keep sharing and keep speaking until it’s no longer useful for people. If you have any specific questions about what it’s like to live with Mohanji, I’m really happy to answer. Feel free to make use of me as I have the opportunity to be here. I’m happy to answer any questions, no matter how small or trivial you think they may be. 

The final “thank you” goes to my office team; they do such great work supporting this, especially the one who’s transcribing all of these recordings. I won’t share the name because maybe they’ll get embarrassed. 

As I’ve mentioned in one of the last messages, we’re looking to extend the team, too. So if anyone reads this and feels a calling, write to me, and we can discuss. 

Have a great day ahead, and I wish you a happy day.

Day 42 Lesson – To serve Mohanji is to live his teachings 

Good morning, everybody; I hope you’re doing very well. 

I was thinking back this morning of the reasons why I started these messages. It was to share with people what it’s like to live with Mohanji because I understand that it’s a unique situation to spend this much time with him here. Also, we have an unprecedented situation (COVID) where people cannot meet Mohanji physically, which could potentially get worse as we see a new strain in the UK. It really is an unprecedented and unpredictable time. 

I also know a number of people would like to serve Mohanji personally, e.g. prepare his food, clothes, administer any medicines, and generally help with personal duties. When he’s travelling, this work is greater than when he’s at home. But now, since he’s here, it’s mainly about preparing meals and making sure that everything is well arranged for the live video events, this type of thing. 

But what I’ve come to know, actually, is that he’s more than capable of looking after himself. He’s very independent and a very private person. He’s spoken in public many times that he’s an introvert by nature. He likes having personal space and time to himself, which is why I try to keep my best focus in the meetings we have in the morning. Then, he just updates me in the evening, so we use his time efficiently. 

Also, I understood that he allows everything from people; whichever way people would like to connect to him, he allows. There’s a lot of people who feel compelled to serve him, and he allows that because they gain satisfaction from it. But I sometimes think that it might be easier for him just to do the tasks himself. However, he’s fantastic in allowing everybody who desires to serve him to do so. 

More recently, it’s been a bit more difficult, and I really appreciate Mohanji’s response to the people who have asked, “How do I serve you? What is the best way to serve you? I’d like to spend more time with you”. He gives them a simple answer, which I’ve heard many times before, but it’s a great reminder for me and for others too. He said: “The best way to serve me is to simply live my teachings, bring brightness to the world, and share with the world your gifts and your talents, and especially help the helpless“. That means he’s happiest when others are happy, when they are looked after and cared for, especially when all beings have been fed, and their bellies are full. This is sometimes why, when I’m speaking to him in the morning, he can suddenly stop, and he will ask me, “Have the birds been fed? Can you hear them?” because he’ll hear the birds chirping away or making noise. I’ll check, I’ll go outside, and I can see that they haven’t been fed. So, I’ll feed them. But it means that he’s felt their hunger. 

So, to serve Mohanji is simply to live his teachings. This is the best service we can give. The best ritual he advises to people is feeding the hunger of all beings because that helps us, and it helps them. 

Before working closely with Mohanji and staying here, I had my own experience of understanding this. It was over a year ago now, when I’d recently become an Acharya. After the training, he sent all of us an email, which was really, really kind; it really touched me. He was offering assistance. He said if there’s anything he could help with at all, we could write to him and ask for help. Then he would do his best to fulfil that.

I was a bit overwhelmed with the kindness which he showed because he had just given us so much during the Acharya training. I thought, what more could I ask for? That night, I thought to myself that I would just like to have something really ordinary, something very human and basic, a human experience with Mohanji, e.g. to share breakfast, a Dosa breakfast. Then I went to sleep and had a dream with Mohanji; it was a very vivid dream, where we were at a Mohanji style retreat. I was packing, but it looked like I was going to be late and miss the bus that was going to take us from one location to another. Then Mohanji came into the room and said, “Don’t worry, you can travel with me to the next stop”. On the way, we stopped for some food; it was breakfast time. We went into a café, and that was my chance to have a Dosa breakfast with Mohanji. So I ordered Dosas to eat with him. I ordered two and had just enough money for those. One was ready, so I went back to the counter, collected it, took it back, and gave it to Mohanji sitting at the table. Then I went back to collect the other Dosa from the counter, when, in a flash of an eye, the cashier turned into a homeless person or a beggar who simply asked me for money, “Do you have money?” I didn’t have any because I had just bought the Dosas. I asked if he was hungry instead. He said yes, so rather than sitting with Mohanji, I sat down with him, and we split the Dosa in half, and we ate it together. I must have woken up then and remembered that. 

That was profound for me because I clearly understood that having breakfast or feeding the hungry and the helpless was the same as having it with him. That stuck with me. 

I didn’t know that I’d have a chance to eat Dosas for breakfast with him after this, especially here at the house. 

So today, this is the message that to serve Mohanji is to very simply live his teachings and help the helpless where we can. When we do this, he actually feels it, and he knows. 

Have a great day ahead.

Tranquilizers and detoxifiers

In these turbulent times, the best antidotes are the teachings and meditations of Mohanji, which has anchored many people. Here we have three beautiful people from the Mohanji family sharing their experiences about anchoring themselves.

By Charles Ndifon Londi, Canada

Anyone who knows Mohanji or has heard about him will be taken aback by the title of this article, but perhaps those who don’t know him will quickly seek him out for a new panacea for their ailments as they must not have had success with medications earlier taken. Yes, life is stressful with new challenging situations cropping up daily where people either have to face them, pretend the challenges don’t exist, flee, or impotently wish the challenges away. 

Some of the problems may stem from eating and drinking habits, in short, one’s lifestyle. Those who succumb to the challenges of life visit the doctor’s office for help and are given all types of drugs to stabilize their aberrant minds, possibly with side effects that may need other medication. I have personally experienced this and can tell you that being a life casualty is not a good thing. So what do tranquilizers do? They are drugs that reduce anxiety, fear, tension, agitation, and related states of mental disturbance. 

Mainstream pharmaceutical tranquilizers may fall into two main classes, major and minor. Some tranquilizers like benzodiazepines can cause mood swings, hallucinations, and depression. In the final analyses, it seems that one sets out to solve a problem and ends up with an even greater problem. However, this is not to denigrate pharmaceuticals, but only to honestly point out that there are some pernicious effects.

Let’s welcome a new class of tranquilizers and detoxifiers, the impalpable but potent elixirs dished out by Mohanji to all who would listen and whose intent is to be totally free on the physical, astral, causal, and mental levels. They have their etiology in a deep and focused understanding of life and its true purpose, created on the luxuriant playfields of supreme consciousness. I have personally used these remedies that are tasteless but sweet. 

These are the Mohanji quotes, podcasts, guided meditations, conference talks, retreats, Mai-Tri Method sessions, and general exhortations on many facets of life. It is said that the taste of the pudding is in the eating. I am voraciously eating whatever pudding Mohanji places on the table and hope you too can have a taste as I had in the experiences below. They led to the breakage of patterns, bindings, self-imposed restrictions, socially accepted ideas, outmoded thinking, etc. I am fighting hard that these patterns and restrictions don’t return as they are a subtle form of self-bewitchment.

I decided to try out the Mai-Tri Method with a beloved Mohanji Acharya, Preeti Duggal, barely months into Mohanji consciousness. What happened just as the session was about to begin (particulars of it confidential) wasn’t clear to me until the facilitator explained it to me. I thought I had suffered a sudden malaise but it was a divine dose of Mohanji tranquilizer and detox that came in. 

Then in another instance, actually a regular practice, I decided to prepare myself to face a recurrent situation that could lead to a confrontation with someone close. What other recourse had I then to dwell in the sacred place of the highest, in my heart center, where dwells my Master who brings along the great Masters to commune and bond with me. I was surprised by how understanding, detached and calm I was to face the situation. 

So I have decided to fly always to my heart center to be with Mohanji in The Bliss of Silence Meditation. While there the troubles that come sound like waves on a very distant shore. There I am tranquil, purged, and detoxified of all heavy emotions, cares, and worries. 

These all-natural remedies are for everyone who earnestly wants to heal not only the physical body but the four other inner bodies and be free and liberated to stand in the light, love, and bliss of the Supreme Consciousness. Would you like some Mohanji tranquilizers and detoxifiers?

By Raja Sekhar, India

I am from Hyderabad. I was lucky to be introduced to Mohanji’s path by Savithri ji. I feel blessed to be able to participate in the Power of Purity Meditation sessions through Neena didi and Aditya ji. I have participated in annadaan and distribution of cloths to the needy along with our team. Furthermore, I feel so blessed to have seen our beloved Mohanji in person and to have received his magic touch by attending the inauguration of Bhima Pushkaram with him. This happened through Krishnamurty Garu and Rajesh Kamath ji, and I am ever grateful for having had this wonderful opportunity to meet Mohanji.

Every day, Mohanji is blessing me to translate one of his English quotes to Telugu and post it in the Mohanji Telugu group. In this regard, I offer my sincere thanks to Soujanya ji for effective help and support in the group.

Whenever I go outside, either walking or in a vehicle, I keep on continuously chanting the Mohanji Gayatri mantra, which is evergreen and ever effective in clearing all my obstacles on the road and in my mind.

One of the major transformations in me after meeting our beloved Mohanji is quite contrary to my previous immediate and rash reactions to situations; I am becoming decreasingly less reactive to those situations. There is a considerable change in my reactions/responses.

My firm belief is that Mohanji is preparing me to be less burdened with Earthly attachments and is showing me a way to attain Janma Rahithyamu (birthlessness). I am grateful for the opportunity to communicate some of my feelings and experiences with my beloved Father – Parabrahma Mohanji! 

By Jayan Jayamadhavan Palakkal, India

I met Mohanji in Dubai in April 1999. I saw a noble heart and a Philanthropist in Mohanji. Mohanji used to deal with people with a cool mind and organize things on a large scale. Many people got jobs and placements through his contacts.

In August 2000, while on a journey in India, Mohanji lost his daughter Ammu. This was a turning point in Mohanji’s life. Mohanji’s visits to the Himalayas and the formation of the Ammucare Trust happened later. I was able to join Mohanji during blood donation camps and other activities in a small way.

I used to meet Mohanji almost every week while in Dubai or whenever possible during visits to Dubai. Once Mohanji was meditating in his room, I met Mohanji afterwards and received a book on Shirdi Baba, the Sai Satcharita. Mohanji told me to visit Shirdi, which I did in 2006 December, and I started experiencing some amazing miracles of Baba.

Whenever a crisis happened in my life, Mohanji was readily available for guidance, and I continue to receive this blessing. I remember the time when Bless the World meditations started. Mohanji’s Shaktipat was felt by me on several occasions in his presence and without his physical presence also.

Mohanji explains spiritual matters in such a simple and easy to understand manner. Mohanji’s healing powers are felt by people around me.

In 2012, Mohanji predicted the shift in consciousness and the changes happening in the world. He advised people to go vegan and also predicted the virus attacks! Under his guidance, I was always able to plan things better and ride through the complicated situations of life.

Thank you, Mohanji, for the wonderful experiences and your guidance as a Guru.

Many Masters or this one?

By Preethi Gopalarathnam, India

This is an important message! I heard the podcast Real vs Unreal by Mohanji and I felt I had to share my experiences and learnings. If you have not heard this, please listen to it. The link is attached at the end of the blog.

I have known Mohanji for the last seven years and have been associated with Mohanji Foundation in various capacities. During this time I have met some very interesting people. Some people have come here, bloomed and are shining bright, polishing themselves and adding value to the world to the best of their capacity.

Some have come and done some great work and have gotten distracted because of personal, mental, and financial issues and have slowly dimmed out. Some have joined the organisation because their friend or family have joined and are connected. These people come on someone else’s belief. They believe everything and everyone and lack their personal anchor to the truth. So many times, I have seen them become disillusioned and leave either unhappy or not satisfied.

There are some, however, who join this organisation and then join multiple such organisations too. They believe in many Masters, and they usually say, “All Masters are one”, so I will learn from everywhere. It’s like taking multiple tuitions for one subject to crack the exam! You attend class after class but no time to assimilate and learn because we are busy with classes.

I have been fortunate to meet and observe all these flavours of people, and these are my observations only. I felt a strong urge to pen them down, and please read through it and take it only if it makes sense to you.

Yes, it is true that all Masters operate from one Consciousness, but the first question to ask ourselves is, are we in that oneness state to realise that? Unless we are there, it is someone else’s truth we believe in. It’s not our experience. If we go back to all the books and life history of great Masters like Yogananda and Vivekananda, we see that they respect all Masters, but they are firmly rooted in one Master and one Guru. Why?

Don’t they know that all Masters are the same? My understanding through my experience is as follows.

At some time in life, we ask for spiritual progress, we pray for guidance, and this prayer is a deep, earnest call from our soul. I can take my example. I connected to Mahavatar Babaji first. I prayed to Babaji, asking him for a true Guru whom I could relate and connect to. Then I was led to Mohanji. Now, how do you know that the Master in front of you is the right one?

Simple, your knowing comes from how sincerely you prayed for guidance and help! This is how I found my Guru. I did my own thorough analysis before I took Mohanji for my Guru, though. It was not instant realisation though there was an instant connection.

I saw for myself the state of purity that he was operating from. I observed his interactions and knew he was genuine. He practised what he preached. He was humble. He respected all Masters, but at the same time, he was a storehouse of power. I started seeing miracles in everyone else’s life and mine too. It was only then I took Mohanji as my Guru. It was logical, and it happened naturally. After taking him as my Guru, I had this confusion. What to do with Babaji now that I found Mohanji?

I see many people who are connected to Babaji, Sai Baba, Ramana Maharishi and many other great and powerful Masters. They find Mohanji, and then I watch them divided. Do they follow Mohanji or the Master who got them to Mohanji, who is powerful and not in their physical form. If the Master is in the body, you can directly go and ask him, so no confusion! I have been there in that space and suffered this confusion, so I felt I should share my experience. Mostly they pray to both and follow both, and that is what I mean by they are divided.

Initially, after I met and connected with Mohanji, I used to get these messages of people channelling Babaji etc., and I have initially gone there too, thinking the source is the same. Everyone is nice and loving, and you feel great energetically. But then we can’t follow everyone and every teaching, right? If we get two contradictory practices, what to do?

I would like to share my experience here. On one occasion at a friend’s place, I had the experience where Lahari Mahasaya and Sai Baba both appeared in the picture of Mohanji that I was holding. I was telling her that I feel sad about why Babaji had to send me to another Master and why he couldn’t come directly and speak to me as he does to all the other people we read in books. It was at this moment that I looked down at the picture I was holding of Mohanji.

It was unmistakable; both these Masters appeared in Mohanji’s eyeballs, each on both eyes. It was unmistakable! I was trembling and shaking, in tears because from inside came a realisation, showing me that all Masters exist, embody and speak through this one Master now. While my question to her was naive, it had purity, so the Guru answered it for me.

We need to remember something; we asked sincerely for guidance from a Master who has left their body or God. If we were in the state where they could communicate with subtlety and directly with us, they would have done it, right?

The fact that they sent you to another living Master proves the authenticity of the Master and your need for this particular Master and their sign of approval for you to move forward with him or her.

It doesn’t mean we are leaving our God or older Master; it means they will start speaking through this living Master, so we understand. Then, in this case, I personally feel the search has to end there. It is this Master in front of you who they will speak through if they want to from now on. Isn’t that why they sent you here in the first place! If you are still in doubt (the mind I tell you!), surrender this to your original Master and say, I did this as your guidance now you take care. Mohanji has said several times the story of a man who took a buffalo to be his Master, and he attained the highest. The sincerity and faith of you, the seeker, is all that matters here.

This experience at a friend’s house was a surreal experience for me, and I know it was true because it transformed me completely. My search for Gurus and people connected and channelling Masters stopped there. It happened naturally and automatically.

I would also like to share another observation. My deepest transformations started happening with Mohanji after this. It has been a rapid journey after that. It took me a while to understand that the connection became pure, and all distractions and loopholes for doubts were eliminated so that the Master could deliver. I could be receptive only after that incident. I still have a long way to go, but that’s surrendered at his feet now. It’s his job; mine is to hang in there however difficult the ride turns out to be!

Shiva – the place where all rivers meet

Ulla Shiva

by Ulla Bernholdt, Denmark

I want to share my personal experience during the six-day program of Shivaratri 2021, which I feel transformed me and has led me to higher awareness.

The program consisted of different modules led by Mohanji Acharyas, including daily blog reading, chanting, homa, Conscious Gapless Breathing, meditation and experience sharing leading up to Mohanji’s satsang on Shivaratri and a 12-hour live Homa from his home. In one of the scheduled zoom calls, Mohanji Acharya Sjarn read a Mohanji blog about Shiva, a blog that I have read before and may have understood from a mental point of view.

Shiva State of Consciousness – an aspiration of every yogi

But this time, I felt different. While listening, I could feel Mohanji’s energy very tangibly inside me moving up my spine to the top of my head. I spontaneously began to see inside my head the different teachers and Masters that I have connected with and all the different processes that I have practised at different stages in my life. It then dawned upon me that the driving force, the connection and the source of all experiences behind them were Shiva.

Shiva is the red thread connecting all the beads from seemingly quite different processes I have encountered – from Christ to Zen to Mohanji’s Consciousness – just to mention a few. The scattered pieces of a puzzle began to synthesize. The energy and joy rising from that realisation were almost uncontainable. I had been searching for the One – the indivisible, and Shiva had been there all the time! Oh, what joy!

Actually, I was not home while listening to that zoom call. I was riding my bicycle while trying to concentrate on listening to every word at the same time. There I was in the middle of the road and the daily business as usual, and it seemed a bit surreal to me, compared to the feeling I had inside of elevation and expansion, feeling overjoyed, ecstatic, and immensely grateful to Mohanji and the Tradition. I felt like flying! The scene reminded me of the one in a feature film: E.T, riding the bike in the air, do you remember it?

I have been meandering through many rivers (following many different paths), and in a split second, during the reading of Mohanji’s blog, I found myself in a place where all the rivers come together.

I felt I was watching the source of the rivers, the Sangam where rivers meet, and the sea where they end, all at the same time. To me, Mohanji is such a place. Because he encompasses all aspects in every one of us, every state we are in and every stage of our evolution, and he responds accordingly, allowing us to have our individual expression and course. Many a time, I have heard him answering people according to their mode. Once, we were taking a dip with him in the Ganges’ holy waters during a Himalayan retreat, and a person asked if the Ganges really is that sacred or if it is just a symbolic representation, a myth? Mohanji answered that it is just a symbol, according to the doubting mind of the questioner. At least, that is my personal interpretation of the situation.

Another reminder for me of the unity of Shiva was that during the daily zoom calls, I reunited with friends I have met and spent time with a long time ago in some other contexts than with the Mohanji family. Here, we were brought together again by the love of Shiva.

One of the elements in the meetings was Mohanji’s Power of Purity meditation which I have been fortunate to conduct for other people many times, but not being able to participate in myself more than a few times. In the meditation, I felt Mohanji’s hand on my forehead and the top of my head receiving his Shaktipat.

The whole process starting with the inner cleansing, participating in Conscious Gapless Breathing, fruit fasting, chanting, and culminating with Mohanji’s Satsang and the powerful Homa has been such a gift without any effort just like the flow of a river following its natural course. I am sure our Shiva, Mohanji, has enabled many of the participants to explore deeper aspects of themselves during these days.

As I end this testimonial, I would like to thank all the Acharyas and participants involved in the process and our dear Guru Mohanji for their untiring selfless service and intention to reach higher awareness of Shiva.

Freedom from patterns

By Trent Leighton, Canada

I first encountered Mohanji roughly two years ago through a video on the Sai Baba Speaks YouTube channel. Initially, I was struck by the immediacy and power of his divine transmission but also extremely suspicious that he was intent on poaching devotees of Sai like myself from our Guru. As I began to dig deeper into the life and teachings of Mohanji, these doubts and misgivings quickly evaporated. First of all, it was clear to me that Mohanji was, in fact, deepening and authenticating my connection to Baba, not competing against him. Secondly, he was providing an open invitation for me to address long-overdue issues in my life through a practical, real-world spiritually, problems and blind-spots that I had been ignoring for decades by hiding behind a false persona of devotion and second-hand self-realization.

Having been involved with a number of teachings, traditions and spiritual communities since my teens, I learned early on the art of the spiritual bypass, that is selfishly using the Guru as a means of escaping life demands. In a matter of months, Mohanji completely put the breaks on these deeply entrenched patterns by instilling what I can best describe as an unconditional and loving motherly demand to use his grace to address matters in my life head-on, with firm conviction and faith. At the top of this list was my drug and alcohol abuse that has exacted a huge toll in my life for the past 25 years.

I had become an expert in manipulating books, meditations and teachers to hide this reality, the fact that Mohanji not only pointed out but did not let me use his realization to perpetuate my addiction. Every time I attempted to convince myself that getting high would accentuate his meditations, Mohanji would slam the door shut, literally and viscerally. I have never experienced anything like it in my life; the absolute full stop that his watchful eye has provided every time an impulse or urge to use drugs arises.

This reality culminated with the Kriya training in which Mohanji initiated a series of deep considerations in my life that continue to this day. One afternoon shortly after the training, a clear and distinct voice spoke the following “Have you ever stopped to consider, Trent, that going to treatment for your addiction is the most spiritual decision you can make for yourself right now?” My immediate response was no, I had never entertained such a possibility and in fact, had always viewed substance abuse treatment for those with much more serious addictions that my own.

The most amazing blessing and a testimony to Mohanji is that going to treatment actually happened. He provided me with an opportunity to apply spiritual solutions to a very real problem on September 3rd of this year, where I entered an intensive program for 48 days that has absolutely transformed my life. In the process of confronting years of pain, mental illness, denial and self-indulgence, I learned that ‘sobriety’ is much more than not using drugs but rather, is about actively embodying the love and selflessness the Master freely provides on a moment to moment basis, regardless of what life presents.

The gratitude and joy I feel from Mohanji are impossible to put into words. He has unequivocally fulfilled his promise to watch over his devotee’s every need while blessing me with the realization that the relationship with an authentic Master is reciprocal in nature requiring me to not only receive but to live the teaching by continually giving back.

The secret miracles

cover

By Soma Seal, India

Since meeting Mohanji in 2014, in my journey on the spiritual path, karma yoga – the path of service has been my purpose. I have found my joy and peace volunteering for Ammucare. After being given the responsibility as the president of Ammucare since 2018, I feel Guru Mandala has bestowed me with a golden opportunity to serve the helpless and purify myself. In this role, I get to see the flow of divine grace in every single seva activity done by Ammucare through each volunteer as an instrument.

However, there are situations when I feel certain activities are just impossible to do because of hurdles, lack of funds, lack of manpower, resources etc. Then I see the grace flowing, and everything gets done smoothly. It is in such situations I realise the invisible supreme power behind Ammucare. That supreme invisible powerhouse is Mohanji.

Every single project is a story of Mohanji’s grace, miracle and a solid example about what conviction, consistency and faith can do!

mohanji

Let me narrate one recent story. This is about feeding the sadhus (wandering monks) in the three holy cities of North India in September 2020. In 17 days, Ammucare fed more than 43,000 sadhus and needy people in these three cities – Varanasi, Haridwar & Rishikesh.

As per the Hindu calendar, there is a particular period of 15 days, which is extremely auspicious to pay homage to our ancestors. This is called ‘Pitru Paksh’. Along with many rituals that Hindus do in this period, feeding sadhus is one way of praying for peace for the souls of their ancestors or loved ones who have left their mortal body.

Just before this period was about to start, I saw a video by one of the Mohanji Acharyas regarding the importance of feeding sadhus during Pitru Paksh (homage to the ancestors). Since then, I had this strong urge to do some seva during Pitru Paksh. Soon after, I received a message from Mohanji. 

He said that Ammucare must feed the wandering monks in Varanasi, Haridwar and Rishikesh who are not getting enough food as the ashrams are closed now. He also mentioned that feeding the sadhus would help not only by bringing peace to the souls of ancestors but would also help everyone to release a lot of their karmic baggage. Mohanji also specified that we must feed good quality food, ensuring their health and safety. There should be no compromise on the quality of the food that we serve to the sadhus.

Hearing Mohanji’s message, I realised it was a command from the Tradition. Watching the video, my urge, and the message from Mohanji – all put together was a divine command that I must plunge into this seva. One more of Mohanji’s leelas (divine plays) was about to begin.

Mission – feeding as many sadhus (monks) as possible.

I was excited. I had full faith that when Mohanji commands, he will also ensure that it will happen. I started the background work on this project. As we were progressing, there were many hurdles, many doubts unfolding – new cities with no volunteers, no local support and above all lack of funds! We were focusing on good quality food for hundreds of sadhus. I had a rough estimation done. I thought we would need at least Rs. 2 Lakhs (Rs. 2,00,000) for this. While we announced this project to raise funds, I was wondering how to collect this amount. The date was approaching fast, and we had to start quickly. One morning, after the announcement posters were circulated, I was feeling very low, almost felt like crying. I suddenly felt so nervous and weak that this project would not happen. I cried to Mohanji – “Mohanji, please help.” I could feel his assurance.

Within a few hours of this episode, Mohanji Acharya and ACT UK volunteer Subhasree called me. She said that seeing the poster for this project earlier that day, she had reached out to some people in London and one kind donor had donated 1000 GBP (that’s almost Rs.1 Lakh) immediately! I had goosebumps all over. That’s nearly 50% of the budget I was targeting! I had tears in my eyes; I didn’t have enough words to thank Mohanji. He had responded to my prayers in the morning and how! As always, no delay! Soon, yet another donor donated, and I had the estimated funds before I even realised what was happening!

This was only the beginning. My dear friends, sit back comfortably and listen to this story of miracles that followed on!

With enough funds in hand, we were ready to start. My second hurdle of no volunteers & no contacts in the cities were getting addressed. Somehow, we started getting connected to the right people at each location. Our breakthrough was our first connection to Kashi Gayatri Ashram in Varanasi. Our volunteers Savitri and Krishnamurtyji played a key role in getting this connection. Within a week, we were able to establish other connections as well.

Exactly as per Mohanji’s advice, we started the Annadaan (feeding) program in Varanasi on 1 Sept. Initially the food was to be delivered from a restaurant at a higher cost which worried me. This was sorted out, and the food was cooked at this ashram by the ashramites. We ensured that the food served was of the best quality. The fresh food was then picked up our volunteer and distributed. 

All along, the entire process was being carefully monitored by our volunteers. 

When an activity is not merely an activity but a command of Guru Mandala with the grace of Guru, the scale in which it happens become miraculous and magnificent. This is what I witnessed here too. Even though our initial plan was to distribute food to 100 sadhus in Varanasi, the first day itself, a few Naga sadhus who rarely come out accepted our food packets. That in itself was confirmation of the presence and blessings of the Masters.

Not just intention, but our perseverance is very important when we do seva activities of this scale as we are constantly tested in the form of some roadblocks. This project was no different. On the fourth day, we ran into a roadblock. The Kashi Gayatri ashram people informed us that they would not be able to continue as the police were not allowing the distribution of food anymore. We didn’t give up. We started exploring other options and soon found two other connections in Varanasi. A student from Banaras Hindu University, with a passion for serving others, came forward to help us. He connected us to Kabir Mutt (Mutt – living place in the name of Kabir who is a great saint of the Fifteenth Century.)

We really consider it our great fortune that we could serve all three meals; breakfast, lunch and dinner to all the residents of the Mutt. Every day, 160 people were served food, and on 17th, we were able to serve 600 people.

Not just this, yet another miracle happened when we found the third location in Varanasi. Mohanji Acharya and ACT USA volunteer Lata Ganesh connected us to her sister, and another noble soul, Guruprasad, who also loves to serve. He took charge of getting the food cooked at his place and distributed the food in Khemeswwar Ghat, Chowki Ghat, Kedar Ghat and the famous Dasaswamedha Ghat. Every day, more than 200 people were served lunch.

Though we had problems initially, Mohanji actually opened new connections by bringing like-minded people to us. In fact, we now have an Ammucare volunteer in Varanasi permanently! 

These are true miracles of Masters. By the way, don’t be surprised to hear this – there were miracles after miracles, with police finally giving us permission to continue the cooking and food distribution at Kashi Gayatri ashram and that service was reinstated. 

It is unbelievable, where we thought initially of serving just a few hundred sadhus, in the 17 days in Varanasi, 4770 people were served food. 

Now, coming to the second holy city, Haridwar. There, we got connected to Sri Gautami Nityannadan Trust, and annadaan started on 1 Sept serving hot food all three times of the day. With each passing day, we saw the crowds swelling. The sadhus enquired from the volunteers about our organisation which was offering food to them daily and blessed everyone abundantly. The food was first offered to Mother Ganga. Every day more than 800 sadhus and needy people were served breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, on the final day, food was continuously served from 8 am to 4 pm, to sadhus and children. Almost 1200 people were served hot food on that day.  

Not just offering food to the holy river Mother Ganga, but every evening, Ganga aarati was also done, sponsored by Mohanji Foundation team, which brought a completely magical atmosphere, the divine essence to everyone who was there at the time. 

Finally, in these 17 days of Pitru Paksh, we served food to 16000 sadhus, children and needy people at Haridwar. Additionally, we provided food and grocery items for a month to 32 families. 

Now, coming to the third city, Rishikesh. The incidents in Rishikesh reminded me of the divine plan of Mohanji to serve only satvic (pure) food to the sadhus. Our initial plan in Rishikesh was to get the food cooked at a local restaurant. For some reason, this plan didn’t work out, which made me quite stressed and flustered. I made quite a few frantic calls here and there, but nothing worked. Next morning, I was talking to Bharat Bhai on something completely different, I just happened to mention about Rishikesh to him, and he connected us to Swami Narayan Ashram at Rishikesh. This is an ashram where young Brahmin boys from needy families from different states of India are brought with the consent of their parents, and nurtured here and taught the Vedas to carry out the traditional Vedic rituals for the good of mankind. This ashram is on the banks of the River Ganges. When I saw the beautiful video of the food being packed into boxes and a gate leading to the banks of Mother Ganges, I was totally mesmerised.

Soon, we arranged with this ashram to prepare and distribute fresh food. I then remembered Mohanji’s instructions! He wanted us to serve only freshly cooked satvic food! One more miracle of Mohanji! He ensured that we got connected to the right people, at the right place and ensured that the food was cooked and served fresh. 

Sukhbeer, our local connection and another volunteer Henry from the UK helped us with food distribution in Rishikesh.

While food seva was progressing in these three cities, I received yet another message from Mohanji. His advice was that we should do annadaan in other holy places as well. He mentioned Thiruvannamalai, Gokarn, Puri, Rameswaram, and Badrinath etc. 

Keeping the intention of serving food in these cities in the future, we thought we could at least start immediately in Thiruvannamalai, and soon we were able to serve more than 7500 people! Not just that, we could give out a month’s groceries to 200 sadhus at Tarapeeth. 

We could take up these additional locations as by now; we had a steady flow of funds! (Remember how I cried on the first day)

I was wondering if we could arrange Rs. 2 Lakhs (Rs. 2,00,000), by now we had a surplus of Rs 12 Lakhs (Rs 12,00,000), six times more than my expectations. Although we had aimed to feed a few hundred, in reality, in the 17 days of Pitru Paksh, we had served food to 43000 people in all these locations. 

Now let me bring another angle to this whole miraculous story.

As I had mentioned earlier, for Hindus, this time is very auspicious. However, not many people get the opportunity to be able to do such rituals and feed monks and pray for their ancestors. As we were continuing this seva, many people across Mohanji’s global family and outside too, took this as a golden opportunity for them and started sending us requests for special pujas to be performed for their ancestors on the Amavasya day (New Moon day), which is the final day of Pitru Paksh, along with the annadaan. To be able to perform the rituals and annadaan for peace and solace of their ancestors, brought so much joy and peace to all those people who had requested us. This gave me additional satisfaction in being able to serve so many people from all over the world.

Mohanji’s command to me that day through the message had brought transformation in many people; not just feeding 43000 people but bringing moksha (liberation) to many ancestors, bringing satisfaction and peace to so many people. It was indeed a golden opportunity for Ammucare, its volunteers, and to me personally, a truly fulfilling experience. A miracle of my Guru Mohanji that will remain as bright as thousand Suns forever!

Thank you Mohanji, my eternal Father, for giving me this opportunity in the first place and holding our hands every moment, facilitating every single step and accomplishing everything so beautifully.

I wish everyone who reads this true experience that I have narrated with complete honesty, is able to understand that the true miracle of a Master is not about materials, but in transformation!

That’s what I witness every moment in my life, walking with Mohanji.

The Pathway to Mohanji

Mohanji4

By Moushumi Patankar, UK

The story started before I was born into this materialistic world again.

My grandma and mum used to follow Mahayogi Swami Umananda Saraswati. I was in my mother’s womb when she said, “We need a girl to help the community, the world.” I came to know about this a few years back when my mum mentioned this. And then slowly, I saw the full movie of my life so far, myself as a unique character in it.

Now, when I see the events that happened in my life in the past (since childhood till now), I realise that I have always been protected. Protected by whom? By Datta, my Guru Mohanji, and my Kali, the one divine energy in various manifested forms.

As a child, I started going to Shree Datta Mandir in Vile Parle, Mumbai, India with my grandma. Such a beautiful temple it is. In the centre of the grounds, the Datta Temple is located, to the right is a huge Audumbar tree, and just outside of the temple grounds, there are statues of two cows. It’s a perfect set up. I used to go there with my grandma every evening. We used to sing so many Datta bhajans together. When I think back, I realise that my grandma was the main instrument who introduced Datta in my life. She came into my life to gift Shree Datta, to show me the righteous path, to guide me to my Guru.

Life went on with so many ups and downs, as usual. Only one thing was and is always present, the protection of divinity.

I got married and came to the UK. A new place, new people and as an introvert, it was truly difficult for me to approach and interact with people. This period of relative isolation gave me the chance to seek what I needed inwards. The only support was from God, the divine energy which was making me stronger day by day. I used to search for my life’s purpose, the intention of me living here in this world. One thing was clear to me. I did not want to end my life by waking up, eating, watching TV, again eating, and then sleeping. Often we do not know the agenda of our life, as the conscious mind is individualistic, and the soul is happy to watch the show without any interference.

I was always very passionate about helping people. I would often search for various reasons to help others but would end up being taken advantage of, or sometimes becoming a doormat. Whenever this happened, I used to think that there was a reason behind this. I offered my gratitude to all these people and situations which happened in my life.

Actually, all these experiences made me so strong because of the presence of Datta in my life. He made sure that I did not lose hope.

In 2012 I found Skanda Vale and since 2016 I started visiting often, as I felt the divine connection more and more. Such a beautiful path was being created for me to reach Mohanji. Obviously, I was totally unaware of that. I always enjoy being in Skanda Vale, taking part in the various poojas in the temples and service activities.

While spending time there, I used to feel that having a Datta Temple at Skanda Vale would be so wonderful. My grandma’s assurance flashed in my mind, “No need to think, Shree Datta will come there.” At that time, I never believed that it would happen. I used to feel this was my imagination talking, but no, my grandma’s message became the truth. Her message to me was that I shall get all my favorite deities here. Since 2016, when I started visiting Skanda Vale frequently, Mohanjiappeared in my life.

That was the best birthday gift I ever got. It was like I took birth again in this life, the ‘New Me’ was born.

In one line I could say, Skanda Vale came into my life for me to meet Mohanji. And because of Mohanji, I got Datta Digambara in Skanda Vale. I remember this beautiful experience which happened on the day of the consecration ceremony of the Lord Dattatreya idol. I was indeed so happy that Shree Datta was finally going to be a part of the Skanda Vale ashram. On that day, we were all standing in the Vishnu Temple in Skanda Vale, waiting for Mohanji to start the rituals. I saw him coming and felt that he was definitely going to say something to me. He came, he said, and he went. I felt total happiness in abundance. Do you know what he said? He asked me, “Are you happy now?” After all, he is a Master, my Guru. If not he, then who knows about my happiness? Indeed I was happy! Finally, Datta (the divine incarnation of the trinity Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwara) was going to be here in Skanda Vale forever. And that meant Mohanji too!!

Dreams do come true. Miracles happen. Having Datta’s presence in Skanda Vale is a real miracle for me. And it is no coincidence that my connection to Skanda Vale happened years before Datta came to this beautiful ashram in Wales.

Whenever I visit Skanda Vale, I spend time sitting in front of the Shree Datta statue. I get the feeling that my grandma is there with me. It’s been more than 18 years since she passed away. She started my journey with Datta and then made sure that Shree Datta was still with me and would never leave me.

The various pieces of the puzzle fitted perfectly together when Mohanji appeared in my life. Life took a beautiful turn and the journey started with Mohanji. There was a vast ocean in front of me, an ocean of opportunities to serve society. Dreams do come true. So many experiences and so much learning (or unlearning?)

I have already written about the experiences that happened at the London retreat in 2018, and how my life transformed from having an inferiority complex to becoming a confident person.

Acceptance, no expectations, and unconditional love; these 3 things are so important to live this life. He always says, “Be Mohanji! See Mohanji in everyone!” Each and every situation teaches us something. All are instruments to take us ahead in this spiritual path. Who makes this happen? Mohanji indeed. Holding our hand continuously…

Poem by Moushumi

Mohanji always gives abundantly. He is everything to me. His physical presence is enough to transform us if we want it to happen. Have faith, surrender to your Guru, he is always holding your hand, continuously. Such is his unconditional love.

I always remember this quote,

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

Years ago, before my grandma passed away, we promised each other that we would always stay together, but she passed away and I felt that she couldn’t keep her promise. She had left me. But later I understood that she had gifted me my Datta Digambara, my Mohanji. My gratitude to my aaji (grandma) for taking care of me, for holding my hand and showing me this path. Now Mohanji is here holding my hand till the end of my breath, and forever.

Sashtanga Namaskara to you Mohanji.

A true companion is someone who is around you when you need him, but will never limit your freedom or free will. A true friend is one who is stable, will never leave your hand in any situation, and loves you without any expectations. A true guru is one who always keeps his followers free and unbound. In all relationships, the bottom line is FREEDOM. – Mohanji, on Born Free, Live Freedom
