DIVINE CALL OF NATURE

Mohanji

by Cathy Johnston, UK

Having gone through 30 years of various gynaecological procedures (and subsequent total hysterectomy 10 years ago) following the respective births of my two giant-sized babies (10 lb each), I had become used to living under the governance of my ever-increasing bladder alerts. Wherever I travelled I’d automatically, mentally calculate my liquid intake and the very real prospect of a cross-legged stagger to the nearest bush (in the face of a commonplace lack of public conveniences).

Most often, my decision was a toss-up between remaining hydrated, and taking the risk, or deciding to dehydrate to avoid a crisis. The latter usually prevailed. Day times weren’t the only problem, this was a 24/7 vigil with sleep disturbances a ‘normal’ for me. Aeroplane and coach journeys were the things of nightmares. Careful consideration and planning beforehand were extremely necessary for me.

Mohanji 3

When the opportunity to attend Mohanji’s Serbian retreat (October 2019) came up, the first considerations that came to mind were all of the above.

(A couple of months before the planning of the travel for the retreat, I had had the dawning that my next birthday would be the big six zero. I had then decided, once and for all, that the time was right to get my problem sorted before I began my 6th decade and duly made an appointment to visit a female gynaecologist in Manchester. Unsurprisingly, it was confirmed that I had a prolapsed bladder and required one of two surgeries. Another appointment – for the investigation to decide which one of the two operations I needed – was planned for the Wednesday after I’d arrive home from Mohanji’s Serbian retreat.)

I have to admit I was sorely tempted not to attend with the thought of flying 2 hours to Zurich followed by a 5-hour coach ride (did it have an onboard loo?) was too much to contemplate. I was traveling with my younger son via a stop-over with him in Switzerland, and who, by sheer and ruthless pester-power (and a lack of real empathy or knowledge about the debilitating and restrictive condition I lived with) convinced me there would be a loo on board the coach and that all would be well.

Mentally, I decided I’d abstain from all liquid refreshments and be prepared to arrive at the retreat feeling like a prune. I could re-hydrate in the comfort of my room with my lovely private en-suite. (Just as well I’d planned ahead as there wasn’t a loo on board the coach – we did, however, stop halfway at a service where I made 3 trips to their ladies room).

Before booking, I had also noted the ‘code of conduct’ sentence that prompted those who needed to leave the room regularly (speaking directly to me!) during satsang, would be best advised to sit at the rear of the hall to avoid interrupting Mohanji’s flow, etc. The first satsang arrived during our first evening together with around 200 other attendees, so I made sure I arrived early to pick my seat at the back, not wanting to have to elbow other, like-bladdered women out of the way.

(Incidentally, all of this particular retreat’s events/words/language was entirely alien to me – not to my son of course who had occasionally uttered these Indian sounding words in my presence – so my expectations were basically, zero!)

The evening of the first satsang arrived (satsang – what does this mean?), and I duly sat at the end of a back-row seat. Unfortunately, as fate would have it, the blonde lady in front of me had rather big, fuzzy hair and my views were so restricted that I found myself constantly bobbing up and down as I became more and more drawn to the truth this Mohanji person was speaking. I became very frustrated (also a little exhausted after such a long journey) but cannily spotted the next seat for the following day that I would nab. I’d get there early once again to avoid any drama!

rereat

The following day’s satsang arrived with me smugly seated at the end of a curved middle row, close to another exit door. I settled in and was so happy with my perfect view. I’d monitored my liquid intake and knew I could last about an hour before having to ‘nip to the loo’.

About halfway through, my mind became distracted by my usual obsession as I wondered when a good time would be to duck out invisibly, not wanting to draw attention to myself or disrupt the flow. I was also beginning to cross my legs and in all honesty, didn’t want to miss a trick of what was going on. I was totally captivated by this person. He spoke to my own heart, directly, speaking my truth and reassuring me about myself. I was transfixed and also uncomfortable with the increasing knowledge of an imminent dash becoming quite necessary.

Mohanji2

Suddenly, out of the blue, Mohanji stopped speaking and asked aloud ‘does somebody need to go to the toilet?’ My heart stopped and skipped a beat as I shrank down into my seat and averted my gaze, praying to God no-one would recognise my body language and realise it was me!! God only knows how I managed to sit through the next half of the satsang, but I was really puzzled. I wondered, “Did this person read my mind? How can this be? This has to be a coincidence,” blah blah, as I raced out at the end.

At some stage later that day, we all toddled off for our ‘Conscious walking’ session in the glorious sunshine on the beautiful Serbian mountainside. Sitting quietly on a rocky outcrop at our mountain top destination, my son and I were discussing the experience so far when I felt a gentle hand on my head as someone navigated the bumps of the hill around where we were sitting. I thought absolutely nothing of it and looked up and smiled at Mohanji as he gently ambled on with the group he was walking with.

Conscious Walking

My son, looking wide-eyed and directly at me, was gasping; “Mum, Mum, Mohanji has just blessed you! Do you realise what this means?” I was smiling but really, in total ignorance of the whole shaboodle so far. Nothing was normal to me. The whole experience so far was a million miles away from my everyday life. All of these people talking so freely about their emotions and problems and this wonderfully wise guy walking casually amongst us all. (I was trying really hard to process but as the days wore on, my mind was becoming more and more mushed.)

I can’t remember the exact sequence of events but at some stage, we were informed that the timetable for the following day was to begin an hour earlier at 6 am and we were to go directly to the dining hall to drink a litre and a half of water followed by 12 almonds. Really? Why would this be? How was I going to cope with the two-hour yoga session afterward? (In truth, yoga was the deciding factor for attending this retreat and if it hadn’t been on the agenda, I definitely could have resisted the power of pestering!)

I was genuinely distraught, my body was craving for some yoga but I knew, deep down, that my whole week of yoga was in jeopardy with this ridiculous new instruction and the subsequent million dashes I’d have to make during yoga, in every session, disrupting the others, etc. and causing embarrassment to myself. Darn it! I felt that this week was going to be ruined for me and that I’d return home as unfit as I’d arrived.

The first session of yoga, following our new water and nut regime, was amazing. Yoga like I’d never experienced and from the word go, we were totally immersed in the feelings within. Starting with the gapless breathing (again something new for me) followed by the traditional full-body workout yoga session.

 

I hadn’t anticipated the overwhelming emotions at the commencement of ‘Shavasana’ when a wonderful guitar sprang to life and the most mournful voice began to sing its tune. I was unsure if this was a live or recorded performance and longed to know if it was live.

Upon rousing, I saw it was the beautiful Natesh, but my taps by this time were already on full-flow and thankfully, from my eyes. I couldn’t control my sorrowful weeping and was very confused as to what was happening to me. (Luckily, my Son was there to console me but I was growing more and more puzzled with all of these new sensations and feelings that were overwhelming me.)

The following day was almost the same, if not, more tears and it was only during the second half of this second day, during the afternoon, that it suddenly dawned on me that ‘Hold on! What’s going on here? I haven’t been dashing out to the loo, this can’t be right, I’ve seen so many people nipping in and out of the yoga sessions and not ONCE have I had to leave the room, this is bizarre, maybe I have soaked up all of the water because of the long dehydrating journey?’ 

I tried hard to fathom it all and maybe, after the 3rd day, I began to mention this to some of the other women I had made friends with. Each one of them smiled knowingly, some even giggled and I was totally dumbfounded. ‘How could anyone heal someone else’s bladder without surgery? What is happening to me? Who is this person?’

who is Mohanji

Words are so feeble a tool to try to convey the atmosphere during this event and I kept thinking to myself; ‘being here is believing, there are no words adequate enough to encapsulate the feelings and emotions bubbling up so frequently unannounced’.

More and more, I had the overwhelming feeling that I was witnessing something truly sacred and divine and I felt genuinely humbled to be enveloped by the grace of this person and his beautifully natural and unassuming family.

cathy 1

One particular word (Mohanji used more often than any other) tickled me and brought to mind a Beatles tune ‘All you need is Love’. It was Mohanji’s pronunciation of the English word, ‘Love’ that sounded like ‘low’ which made me smile every time he spoke it and this tune became cemented, on a permanent loop within my mind.

I became convinced throughout the remainder of the retreat that I had been touched by the grace of God and had even had a flesh-hug from the same. How could I possibly explain this to the people back home? Where would I begin to describe the goings-on and wonderfulness of it all? I then began to dread the prospect of being without these people, this new, spiritual family I had found.

I also had the prospect of my second gynaecological exploratory appointment looming on the Wednesday after my return home at the weekend. ‘Would it be prudent to go along? Would this be an insult to Mohanji and maybe reverse my ‘miracle cure?’ What was I to do? Who would know the answer? Would attending this second consultation back home cast doubt upon my faith?’ I was in a quandary and towards the last day, I began to ask the advice of one or two people. My son was adamant and quite assertive in that I had to keep my faith and cancel the consultant’s appointment. Someone else told me the answer was within me. Turmoil!

The final evening dawned and it was my time to have a one to one, 3 minutes with Mohanji. I was more troubled with thoughts about my elder son and his future life and the recent near-fatal accident of my husband to think about using these precious minutes to ask about my personal, troubling decision. So I nervously blathered on to Mohanji about my husband and our life of striving together, ignoring the ‘Elephant in the room’ question.

After Mohanji had delivered his reassurances regarding my spoken troubles, I thanked him but just as I was about to open the door to leave him, I turned around and asked him outright, “Did you heal my bladder?” to which he responded, in his gentle, half-smiling way,

“I am always at work.”

My journey homeward bound was to stay two nights with my son in Switzerland, before flying back to the UK. During the first day out in Switzerland, I was dismayed to notice a slight return in my need to find the nearest ladies’ room and on my return to Geneva airport for my trip back to the UK, I glumly noted the frequency was increasing.

My 21:30 flight was delayed by two hours which meant a dismal hanging around a half-empty airport and once past security I found myself dashing towards the nearest loo. Typical of my pre-Mohanji cure, once inside the cubicle I had a frantic dash to prevent an accident and I felt utterly despondent and really confused as to all that had just occurred, in the space of a week. Did my indecision to cancel my consultant’s upcoming appointment reveal my lack of faith and put doubt into my mind regarding the healing?

I was at a complete and utter loss, with no-one to help or support me, so I looked up from the cubicle and asked Mohanji out loud, “Please Mohanji, tell me what to do, am I being punished for doubting or lacking in faith and by keeping my appointment will this undo all of the work you have done? Please help me.” I was feeling very sad and unhappy and so unsure of myself and the decision I had to make.

transformation

As I walked towards the washbasin and pressed for the soap, I looked into the mirror and suddenly noted that the song coming from the piped music was none other than ‘All you need is Love!’ I literally laughed out loud and smiled at myself and spoke out loud to Mohanji in complete and utter thanks.

My answer had arrived, and he’d known all along that I had had that tune in my head, throughout the whole week. How funny! God has got a great sense of humour and does work in the most surprising ways.

Needless to say, I duly cancelled my consultant’s appointment for the Wednesday ahead and have never looked back (or have had to keep my eyes peeled for the nearest convenience!).

Once again, words cannot begin to convey my gratitude for the whole, surreal and ultimately, humbling experience but most of all for my reintroduction to the God within. Mohanji, (I’m smiling now, typing his name) the world will indeed be healed. All we need is Love.

Limitless Grace

shaktipat

by Mohana Padma Priya

His Grace has followed me everywhere; he has shown me his presence and support so many times that it is impossible to count. His love has opened my heart and helped me see my true nature, to find selflessness and love inside of it.

This is a short story of how Mohanji’s teachings and his presence has transformed me.

I met Mohanji in April 2016 for Kriya initiation. Before that, I had been to only 2 meditations and knew about Mohanji barely for 2-3 weeks. In such a short time, he came into my life. I was looking for a Guru for a few months and prayed to Lord Krishna to bless me with a Guru. I did not expect to meet him in person in this life; I always imagined that the Guru is somebody who is far away and you know him from videos or books. After the first meditation, I heard that Mohanji was coming to my country and he would initiate people into Consciousness Kriya. I had no idea what it was but I felt that I should apply. So I did and got accepted in 2 days.

Consciousness Kriya initiation

I was so happy to meet him and became his disciple. By that time, I had watched a lot of videos and read his blogs; every word was the truth that I felt in my heart. The first time I met him, he came into the room and came straight up to me and touched my arm. That meant everything to me, to be able to have a real, living Guru, to be in his aura, to sit in front of him and receive his blessing and to be initiated by him. After the initiation, I felt that I didn’t need anything else; I have received everything, he has given me everything I ever wanted. I was so thankful and nothing else mattered to me.

“Kriya is basically an intention for the highest. It is a gift given by great masters for contributing to the aspirations of mankind to realise his or her original form. A state of bliss!” – Mohanji

After the first meeting, the journey started. There were huge transformations, satsangs and retreats, a lot of ‘friends’ left me as a lot of people couldn’t understand what was happening with me; there were understandings and misunderstandings, fighting my inner wars, family issues, service and work… All was ok because I had his love.

However, one year ago I completely fell apart, I couldn’t finish university, I had no job and no place to stay. I felt stuck and without focus. After 3 days of 24 hours of non-stop crying, I somehow gathered myself to write to Mohanji about my situation and ask for guidance. He sent me to Belgrade. I stayed there for a year and worked at a Mohanji center. I had very low income and I was living off from the goodness of the M family; they welcomed and accepted me as their sister and always lent a helping hand.

While there, I started volunteering for the MYC – Mohanji Youth Club. They needed somebody to design a website and I volunteered to do it. I had no technical knowledge in designing websites but the moment I said that I will do it; I got a vision of how it should look. In one week of work, we had the website going. The people were happy with it and liked the design. For that one week, I felt wonderful, learning and working on the website. I never expected to enjoy it so much. After some time, a lady from the foundation offered me a job to design a website. I was so amazed; it was all Mohanji’s grace. He gave me a profession. Before that, I felt so lost and I wasn’t sure what I would do without work; I was into graphic design but I wasn’t sure how to start and what to do.

Today, this is my profession and I always wanted to work from home, so he also fulfilled that desire of mine. As somebody who started one year ago, clients are coming out of thin air, they are contacting me and I can feel the grace every time somebody asks me to work on a project, and I have a deep understanding that Mohanji is behind this. It’s all him. He does the work; he sends the people for our fulfillment and liberation. There are no words to express my gratitude to him. He has always been by my side and supported me and all the people who are connected to him. He is a bubble of love and grace.

I bow down before his holy feet with the deepest gratitude in my heart. Thank you, dearest Guruji, for everything.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 8 – “A Mother’s concern”

state of guru

Our beloved Parabrahma is not only a Master, but plays varied roles as a mother, a father, a friend, a son and so on. He understands our instincts and carries us through the turbulence that occur in our lives. He takes care of incidents that may seem impossible for the mind to comprehend! He bestows His unconditional love and compassion on each one of us, protecting us and holding us in His embrace. All that is required is faith and conviction that the Master will never let go of our hands!

Aniss had some concerns regarding her daughter and she narrates how beautifully Mohanji took care in this story in Mohanji Satcharita Chapter 8.

A Mother’s concern

By Aniss

I had come back to Pune from another country last year. Once in Pune, I enrolled my daughter in a similar school that she used to attend abroad. However, we stumbled upon a problem. CBSE Board in India makes a study of the language Hindi compulsory and my daughter could not speak a word of Hindi. She had never studied the language, ever! Understandably, I was extremely worried about her situation and wondered how she would cope. There was no way that she would be able to clear the Hindi exam.

It so happened that soon enough I met Mohanji during one of His trips to Mumbai. It was an amazing experience indeed being in His divine presence. I explained to Him the problem being faced by my daughter. I told Him how I was worried that my daughter may not be able to pass the Hindi language examination. I added that I did not want her to fail in Grade 9 because of this. She didn’t even know the Hindi letters!

Mohanji told me, “Don’t worry. Tell her to focus on studying. I am with her. She will pass the 9th grade.”

Soon my daughter began her schooling in Pune and also started taking private lessons for Hindi, but her progress was very slow. It is not easy trying to learn a new language beginning with the alphabets. Moreover she was in Grade 9 and the requirements of the language were obviously higher. Exams were soon approaching!

The final exams were imminent and she was just not ready for her Hindi examination. Through sheer hard work, she had gained enough proficiency in the language to pass the 5th grade exam, but not the 9th. The only thing that kept us going was Mohanji’s assurance. Our faith remained in Mohanji’s promise that she will pass this subject anyway.

It turned out that this year’s exam was tougher than usual and many students were not happy with the results. My daughter too believed she might not get through.

When the results were announced, we discovered that she actually obtained a passing score in Hindi! It so happened that she had earned a few marks lower than the passing grade, but since the Principal was aware of her situation, the school decided to grant her additional marks and move her to the next grade! She was able to go to Grade 10!  I was amazed and humbled when I learnt about this!

I understood immediately that it was the Master’s grace and compassion that helped us through this situation. The seemingly impossible task was made possible by Mohanji! Before I met Mohanji and shared my problem, I worried about the outcome of this. But that one sentence from Him gave me so much assurance and I laid all my worries at His feet.

I know that when we surrender our life to Mohanji and have faith in Him, we do not have to be worried about anything.

Read Mohanji’s blog on the Sun and the Man!

Mohanji

Once we are on the bus that Mohanji is driving, Mohanji will take care of everything. We only have to enjoy traveling, that’s it!

Grace through Faith & Surrender

Real life experience shared by Devotees

Mohanji_grace

Dr. Harpreet Wasir, Preeti Duggal, Ekaterina Nestorovska and Reena Kumar share their experiences that show the presence of Mohanji’s protection and grace at every moment, regardless of His physical presence. If we have a strong connection to our beloved Guru, not only does He taken care of us but also those who are connected to us.

i am with you.jpg

Dr. Harpreet’s Experience Sharing:

We begin with Dr Harpreet’s recent experience of grace and protection.

Harpreet_Mohanji_Grace.jpg

“I had three difficult cases to operate upon. A heart valve replacement surgery followed by two heart bypass surgeries. The first two patients were from Iraq who had come to us because they could not afford surgery there. Before I start my surgery, I always dedicate it to Mohanji  and also leave the results to Him after I finish.

At a critical juncture when the heart was beating in my hand during the surgery, I got a call that my mother, who is aged 80 yet an active gynaecologist, had slipped and fallen. In the middle of the surgery, I somehow managed the decision to get her to the emergency department. With Mohanji’s grace, she reached the X-ray room of the emergency department around the same time as I was leaving the operating room.

Harpreet_Mother

When my mother was on the X-ray table, all the doctors who examined her were sure that they would find hip fractures or a spinal fracture. When I reached the emergency department, I realized that I was carrying Mohanji’s eye card in my chest pocket which was highly unusual. I realized that I badly needed His presence for my cases today and, hence, had kept it. I kept the eye card in my mother’s hand before her five X-rays were due. I told her to hold it and just remember Mohanji whom she has met only once.

eye.jpg

I stood in utter breathlessness and in complete surrender to Mohanji. I just put my mother in His care. I was in a state of utter silence and thoughtlessness, simply connected to Him. Most astonishingly, despite the doctors being sure of a fracture, all the X-rays were normal and I was able to take her home for pain management.

On reflection, I realised that I carried His card not just for the patients who came to me for surgery, but most unexpectedly for my mother too. It feels like Mohanji, being a Guru, pre-emptively knew about this event. He gave me serious patients so that I would keep His card in my pocket so that it could be given later to my mother for her protection, thus ensuring all her X-rays were normal.

Harpreet_Mohanji_blessing.jpg

As a doctor, I work with people’s lives. But I always feel that it is He who does it through me. He pre-empted all events as He always does for those who have utmost faith and surrender. It is for all of us to know that Mohanji not only takes care of the present but also of the future. Our faith is always answered.”

Harpreet_Mohanji_i am with you.jpg

Jai Mohanji,

Dr. Harpreet Wasir, Delhi

Preeti Duggal’s Experience Sharing:

Preeti_Mohanji_grace2

Preeti Duggal shares here how Mohanji’s grace was evident at a time of crisis, enabling Preeti to embark on a sacred pilgrimage as planned.  When we surrender, grace flows…

“I would like to share the rays of grace which Father always showers on us unconditionally. To attend the Bosnian pyramids pilgrimage, Preethi Gopalarathnam and I were flying from Mumbai to Frankfurt en route to Zagreb. When we reached the airport, the airline staff informed me that my ticket for the journey had not been booked. It was booked only for Preethi Gopalarathnam. The travel agent had forgotten to block the seat for me and, hence, the ticket was not booked.

It was a moment of panic for a few minutes, but as always Mohanji was our saviour. At the last moment, we had to buy a ticket which was luckily available though at twice the price. The flight from Frankfurt to Zagreb was full, but with His blessings, we found a seat in a flight a few hours later. Seated alone at Frankfurt airport, I realised how with very little difficulty, Mohanji had arranged my trip. At 2:30am in the night, He checked with me if everything was fine.  I have no words but only gratitude and love for Him. Thank you Father for always being there for me at times of crisis. I learnt a big lesson too. Never take things for granted.”

Preeti_Mohanji_grace1

Madhusudan Rajagopalan, who was a witness to this incident, added his views on this incident as below:

“This incident happened between 12:45 to 1:15am for a flight scheduled to leave at 2:55am. Look at how grace worked – they were very coolly dealing with the situation (acceptance) and planning alternatives instantly (practicality). How amazing that the tickets were available at such short notice for both legs – onward and return. Mind you, their return was from Belgrade to Mumbai, so it was a multi-city itinerary, not a plain return ticket.

Due to all this drama, they were able to reach immigration only by 2.30am and amazingly, the flight was delayed! As Mohanji always says “Big problems are solved through minor hardships” and that’s what had happened here; eagerly laid plans were not disrupted and valuable lessons were learnt about extra diligence while planning a journey;  and of course ample demonstration of how He works silently to protect us. I don’t think we even fathom how lucky we are!”

fire of awareness

Jai Mohanji,

Preeti Duggal, Bangalore

Ekaterina Nestorovska‘s Experience Sharing:

Ekaterina_Mohanji_Grace1

Ekaterina Nestorovska states how she experienced  the protection of  Mohanji at a time when she felt vulnerable. As with many of us, this is just one of many such incidences in her life. Ekaterina’s connection and faith in Mohanji and His unconditional love and protection towards us all is shared beautifully here.

“At work today I was asked to stay late and it was dark by the time I had left. To get to the bus stop, one has to walk through a deserted road which has no lights, houses or people. It’s a well known unsafe area. As I was leaving, I felt an impulse to listen to a protection chant  sung by Mohanji and played it through my headphones. As I was hurrying to reach the bus stop, I noticed a man on the other side of the road who passed me by, walking in the opposite direction. He suddenly turned around and started following me. As it was so dark and lonely, anything could have happened and no one would have known. As he started whistling, I started repeating Mohanji’s name. I didn’t have any fear and had faith that I was protected. I, of course, had the urge to walk faster to get to the main road and to the bus stop. Once I got there, the danger was gone.

When I got home, I saw a huge dog lying at my front door. I felt as if it was a sign of protection. I went in quickly to get some food to feed it. Everything happened so quickly that I didn’t have time to think much. But it truly felt like I just have to be in the hands of Mohanji and flow with whatever comes. There is nothing else to do!

Jai Mohanji,

Ekaterina Nestorovska, Skopje, Macedonia

Reena Kumar’s Experience Sharing:

Reena_Ronit_Mohanji_Grace1.jpg

Reena Kumar narrates her experience of how Mohanji’s divine protection ensured that her son Ronit was able to sit for his exam and do well, despite a serious accident.

For me, Mohanji is sakshat bhagwaan (God incarnate). He is so compassionate and listens to his devotees. My son Ronit is very careless and casual as one tends to be during adolescence. During his tenth grade, he rarely studied. I used to be worried about his attitude. Before the exams, Ronit was able to meet Mohanji. Mohanji looked into his eyes and said “Don’t worry.” A few days later, Ronit met with an accident before his last exam. By Mohanji’s grace, his eyes and brain were fine. However, he had severe injuries to the hands, shoulders, legs and feet. Usually, no one waits for an accident victim in Gurgaon, but 18 people waited with Ronit and called us. His scooter was in a terrible condition. It couldn’t be moved but people helped me park it as my husband took Ronit to the hospital in his car. By Mohanji’s grace, I was offered water and someone dropped me home.

My son wasn’t able to study for his Maths exam as he had severe pain and went for the exam on a wheelchair. When the results were about to be declared, we were very stressed as Ronit had sat for the exam without any preparation. He got 70 marks in maths. That could be possible only with Mohanji’s grace. Mohanji had saved his year of work. Ronit told me, “Mohanji had said ‘Don’t worry’ before the accident. He was with me, Mumma.”

Mohanji’s grace was evident again on the day of the results helping Ronit with what he wanted to study further – science. In his school, admission into the science stream was impossible with Ronit’s result (71 percent). Because of Ronit’s casual attitude, the principal was reluctant to allow him to take science and said that it was impossible. My husband prayed to Mohanji and wrote to Him. Ronit and my husband waited for three hours and Mohanji’s reply came. He said “I am proud of Ronit.” At the same moment, the principal rang the bell and agreed to give admit Ronit into the science stream. She told him, “You are exceptional to get science at 71 percent.”

Such is the grace of our Master that we can neither understand nor express enough gratitude. He is infinitely kind, loving and caring. We must recognise His leelas (divine play) and follow His teachings. We should try on our part to be humble and good representatives of our Guruji. Wherever we go and whatever we do, Mohanji’s name should rise higher and higher and spread around the globe.

The real life experience shared above, reiterates the following.

Faith can move mountains and create miracles. The divine grace and protection of Mohanji towards those who love Him is always evident. No matter what the situation or which part of the world we are in, when we ask for help, He’s always there to protect and guide us.

Ahimsa, the Vegan Way – a True Inspiration from Guru Mohanji

Author: Shyama Jeyaseelan, UK
As Mohanji says, “If you are sure the world must change its ways, the only way to make it happen is to start with changing your ways. Transformation is essentially individualistic before it becomes collective. And the world is what we have made of it through generations of insensitive existence.

Ahimsa the Vegan Way - an inspiration from Mohanji

I would like to share a transformation that took place within me with Mohanji’s love and grace. Year 2016 was very special for me. It was the year when the sacred pilgrimage to Kailash became a reality, Mohanji was in the UK for Guru Poornima and the UK retreat, I received Kriya initiation from Mohanji and the year when I had the privilege of being at the Skanda Vale temple in Switzerland for the inauguration ceremony of the Somaskanda Moorthi while Mohanji was present. It was also the year Ahimsa the Vegan Café, a dream inspired by Mohanji, opened in London!

Ahimsa the Vegan Way 2 - an inspiration from Mohanji

On Guru Poornima day, an evening programme with Mohanji was organised in central London. I had the blessed opportunity to cook and serve food to Mohanji that evening. It was a simple meal but Mohanji’s kind “Thank you” made me very joyful inside. During the meal, I shared a feeling that had been bothering me for a while.

I mentioned that when our cats are unwell, I feel very sad and do my best to take care of them to make them better. However, even knowing how much cows and calves are suffering in dairy farms to provide us with milk, I was still unable to give up eating dairy! It made me sad how insensitive I was being towards the suffering of other beings. Mohanji simply said, “Don’t worry, it will happen.”

My family had been vegetarian for many years, but ate eggs and dairy products. Until meeting Mohanji I had been unaware of the horrors of dairy farming. As I read articles or watched videos of the dairy industry, I prayed that things would change in the industry. I also realised that by becoming vegan, along with many others, I would be able to contribute towards positive changes in society. Although the intellect knew what was the right thing to do, the mind always won with many excuses. I didn’t want to give up my cakes and coffees! That summer, after the retreat and being treated to beautiful vegan food for 4 days, I came home determined to stop eating dairy. Disappointingly, for various reasons it did not happen. Then the 2017 retreat took place and I was thinking again on the way home if I was going to be strong enough to do it this time.

The next day I was cooking paneer and two things happened simultaneously. I remembered Mohanji saying at some point during the retreat that the Guru we are seeking is within us. At that moment, I had the amazing feeling of Mohanji’s presence filling up my body. As Guru and God merged into one, the decision of becoming vegan was one of the easiest choices to make. How can I give the most compassionate Guru something obtained by means of cruelty and suffering? That moment was the turning point for me to change.

The 1st week after I stopped eating dairy products, I felt very light physically. Emotionally and mentally, it was joyful to know that I was contributing in some small way to make positive changes to society. Approximately 542,000 people in UK are vegan now! When I say Brahmarpanam, the food prayer before my meals, I have the happiness and satisfaction that I am offering sattvic food to my Guru and God.

Ahimsa the Vegan Way 3 - an inspiration from Mohanji

Looking back, I realise whatever sadhana I do on a daily and weekly basis had started the change in me, but the process was accelerated by Mohanji’s love, grace and blessings. My heart is full of love and gratitude to Mohanji for giving me the strength to change. The bhajan below is sung by one of the children at the Sai centre. The words are so beautiful that it melts my heart every time I hear it. I also had the privilege of offering it to Mohanji during the retreat last year.

“You are my heart, my soul, my own

You are my own eternal guide

You are the one I adore

You are the sun, the moon in the sky

You are the stars that shine at night”

You are my all, my beloved Mohanji.

With eternal love and gratitude,

Shyama Jeyaseelan

Sadananda – Mohanji

Mohanji Silence

Written by Sandeep Mishra
477208_511442525549885_1050861091_o

After meeting Mohanji and coming under his wing, I always prayed to him that he might send me a sign or something to show that he and Sadananda Baba have some connection. I knew it was a pure mind game, but I couldn’t resist this thought.

Sadananda Baba established four ashrams and allocated one festival to each ashram. In this context the Ramnavami function is held at Rayapura, Hubali. It is also the same ashram where Sadananda Baba took his Maha-Samadhi.

Before making my travel plans, I told Mohanji that I was planning to visit the Rayapura Sadananda Samadhi Ashram for the Ramnavami function (on April 8th). To that he replied “Bless You. My Pranaams and Prostrations to Sadananda Baba”. After reading his message I felt a very strange happiness. I took it casually, fooled by Mohanji’s humble nature (forgetting his true stature, and acknowledging him with merely human emotions. Not always, but yes sure, this time I did).

I reached Rayapura on the morning of April 8th. After freshening up I went to take the Baba Samadhi Darshan. Here I observed that as I was about to enter the Ashram, they started playing my favorite Bhajan. The same thing happened last year on Ramnavami too. I finally made it into the Ashram, sat down with all the people and lovingly contemplated Baba’s idol.

Suddenly I felt that I should connect with Mohanji’s eyes. I took out his “Unconditional love is our true nature” eyecard, from my wallet. I tried to look into his eyes. I could see some Arabic type letters ( I don’t really know that alphabet) below Mohanji’s third eye (just as I had seen Mahavatar Babaji and Sai Baba too on Mohanji’s third eye. I have shared the Mahavatar Baba experience in a previous sharing and Mohanji is aware of it). While looking into the eye card the angle of the card was such that the back part of the card was facing towards the ground. After seeing those strange letters I tilted the card in such a way that I might see the letters more clearly, towards the light. With this adjustment the card was standing straight and the back side of the card was facing Baba’s Idol.

A person known to me suddenly asked me about Mohanji’s picture “Is it a new Baba?”. I was a little startled by his sudden question and didn’t want to say anything. So I turned the card back, pretending that I was just looking at the card. When I flipped the card I saw Mohanji’ s image in the prostration position towards the light. As soon as I saw his picture on the back side, his words about the prostration to Sadananda Baba came into my mind. And my heart knew “He meant it and he did it”. I was so overwhelmed!

When I came to Mumbai, I messaged him that the trip had been wonderful and that I had seen him prostrating to Sadananda Baba. Mohanji replied “I am Glad”. I asked him about those strange letters. He just said “I know” and did not say anything more about them. There are a lot of incidents that happen. Mohanji only explains if an incident is relevant, or if it is something I might need to know at that particular time. When eligibility comes, all is revealed  .
After this incident, the question in my mind about the link between Sadananda Baba and Mohanji vanished. I don’t know what else to write because I never knew what to write and how to write. It is Mohanji who always takes care of all the events in my life. Mohanji you only did this miracle and you only witnessed it. You only asked the permission to write and you only wrote. I just want to thank you for holding my hand and taking me to the light. I know I am not worthy. I don’t know what more to write. All I can say is thank you and offer you love from the heart. Love you always Mohanji <3.

The Mohanji Factor – Part 1

Being married to a Master is certainly no ordinary life. The Mohanji Factor is hard to define. Can we really understand the Divine through the narrow lens of our limited faculties? In this (two part) blog, Biba Mohan opens a window into her home and heart, sharing precious glimpses and perspectives of life with Mohanji.

Image 1-18 April 2010 – a date that marked a union beyond time
April 18th 2010 – the date that marked a union beyond time

The intention behind this text is to share with you how the great challenge – and even greater blessing – of being married to Mohanji truly feels. I do hope this will dissolve the doubts and concerns of some.

When I decided to marry Mohanji, I knew very well that I was marrying uncertainty. There would be no structured living. The regular, clock-work married life was never my cup of tea anyway. I liked challenges and this is surely something we have plenty.

Five hours after Mohanji and I got married at the Registrar’s office, followed by the usual meal and family gathering, we were in a different city conducting meditation. Some of the relatives were disgruntled and I could not find words to effectively explain why we had to leave early… That moment marked a marriage most unusual in its nature. I knew I was marrying changes, fluidity, out-of-the-comfort-zone challenges and liberation. This was fully in line with my rebellious nature – I always liked doing things in accordance with what felt right to me, what had my inner confirmation. When a journalist from Dubai way back in 2008 interviewed me about my Yoga teaching and movie acting experience, I was surprised to see how she chose to name it – “Rebel with a cause”. I thought about it more deeply and it struck me how true this is.

Image 2-rebel-with-a-cause-1

Not that my rebellion was making me focus on what I am against, but I always stood for my own truth and believed that only when we have the courage to live our truth can our life become truly fulfilling.

Religious dogma and certain societal rules that made absolutely no sense to me did not stand much chance in my world. For example, when Mohanji and I got married, I felt free to choose my own wedding gown instead of the usual white – I thought “after all, it is my wedding and I should be wearing something I truly enjoy.” The same applied to the choice of the wedding ring. I never enjoyed wearing a ring on the ring finger, only on the middle finger. I came across a ring that truly symbolized our union – two hearts connected in eternal flow of energy, celebrating Love with no hooks, Love beyond all barriers, Love pure and eternal…

Image 3 - The wedding ring of Truth
The wedding ring of Truth

I cannot think of Mohanji as a man or a husband. I perceive him to be a being of sheer purpose; a free being who also happens to be my husband, but first and foremost an entity that is here and everywhere, with many people in multiple aspects of being-ness, moving effortlessly between tasks and places.

Very often people cannot see beyond the obvious. They are unaware that they are judging a situation using their mind’s limited faculties. When Mohanji sometimes scolds me in front of others, certain questions soon come my way: “Why is he so abrupt and rude with you?” or “Does Mohanji ever spend time with you? Does he talk to you with love, kindness and consideration? Does he spend time with Mila?” I, therefore, decided to write a blog on this, to set the record straight.

My answer to that would be the following – Mohanji is objective and totally impartial. He grants me no special favours, nothing more than anyone else receives. I never expect any either because I know his heart and I know his dedication to the higher purpose that he lives for. He is, as he says, “purpose-bound”.

Image 4-Mohanji_s ‘purpose-bound_ expression
Mohanji’s ‘purpose-bound’ expression

I see that purposefulness happening all the time. Indeed he is like a mirror, filling into the vessel that you bring to him. If you bring anger and a hatred-filled mind, he responds in the same way with laser sharp definiteness in order to blast it off you that very instant. The same principle applies to me in those moments when he scolds me.  If you bring love, however, he is love and he melts… The mirror called Mohanji sincerely and objectively reflects your own constitution.

Whenever he has uttered sharp words to anyone, I have clearly seen things change in them almost immediately. His presence always transforms and heals. Many people, however, come with expectations. Those people will also leave with complaints. Expectations never work with Mohanji. He never caters to such desires. He always says “I never intercept or interfere with anyone’s karma. All I do is remove blockages so that they could move on effectively in evolution”. Those who complain have clearly not understood him. When I once told him that his straightforward approach may be taken as rude behaviour, he said: “What have I got to do with people? I never do anything for myself. I do it for their own good. I do it out of love and compassion and the need to shake them up, to wake them up from their deep slumber of routine habitual ignorant patterns. I am doing it out of love, not hatred. When someone scolds another out of anger and hatred, it is not good for either party. What I do is not out of anger or hatred for the person. It is out of love. That makes my responses pure and clear. If someone does not understand that and thus decides to leave me, how can I help it?” Indeed, the crucial difference is in the intention – are the reactions based on love or hatred? This should be clearly understood.

Image 5-The blessing of scolding
The blessing of scolding

Whenever he scolded me, I never felt the usual sensation of the heart chakra shrinking, the painful emotional scarring which is often remembered long after. On the contrary, I always felt something was being removed from me. Some blockage would be cleared, followed by an inner shift, bringing a sense of relief, clarity and blissful lightness. What’s even more interesting is that I do not even remember any of his past scoldings. I honestly cannot remember a single one. And even he will not remember what he told me or anyone else after the incident unless someone reminds him. He always operates in the present, sliding to the next and next event effortlessly. Nothing stays in his canvass as he glides through life. Nothing can hold him beyond the specific time. This, I must say, is the unique quality of a Master – if a Master cannot scold his disciple and prick the balloon of his/her ego, then he is no Master.

Sugar-coated words due to second agendas are the quality of politicians, not spiritual Masters. Every true disciple should recognize the value of scolding and accept it with gratitude, for nobody can fight the in-built ego mechanism, but a Master can. In my case, the situation is unique and slightly more challenging because my Master is also my husband and when disagreements happen all wives like to be right at least sometimes. 🙂 However, I don’t have that right – and can’t complain either cause that was my own conscious choice!

Image 6-Love is…
Love is…

I have witnessed something beautiful about Mohanji in many life situations till date – he carries no anger, hatred or enmity towards anyone. He just responds to situations objectively and moves on. One day he said “Look at the birds and animals. They accept life situations as they come. A poor cat was hurt in a traffic accident. Its legs were broken. It dragged itself to one side of the pavement and licked its wound. It stopped crying almost immediately and started handling its new situation. Look at its objectivity! Why are we so resistant? If it was a human being, he/she would instantly find someone to blame and make the given situation worse. Lack of acceptance of what is given is one of the primary causes of human sorrow. Nobody ever gets anything that he/she does not deserve. So, acceptance of reality is important in order not to be stuck with a place, person or a situation.”

Indeed, it is our resistance that leads us to the blame game, to sorrow and self-pity. But this does not apply to Mohanji. This was especially noticeable during the times when he worked in the corporate world (until mid-2012). Wherever he worked, he never waited for others to complete his work. He used to work hard, day and night, and never switched his mobile phone off (I must admit, I was not too pleased with that…). Always available and ready for work! Despite his hard work and despite bringing a lot of new business to his company, his management often treated him in an unjust manner. He would just brush it aside and say “I operate in my capacity and they do so in theirs. Life moves on.” Mohanji brushed off the injustice and left them to handle their own karma. The same applied to those who cheated him or let him down in life. He just detached from the person, place or event and moved on. Total acceptance and objectivity were obvious in all his work. He always used to say “If you are good at what you do, you will be in demand. The sun cannot be hidden even by the thickest of clouds for long.”

Image 7-The sun that shines even in darkness
The sun that shines even in darkness

Mohanji is a thorough introvert. I know this better than anyone else. He likes to be left alone. I always remember a story from his childhood – when a primary school teacher asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, he said “I want to be alone.” This made the teacher brand him as a retarded child! I am sure her opinion would have changed if she could see the Mohanji of today.  As the number of people coming to him has increased manifold over the last few years, his private time has become increasingly precious and limited. He never complains. He only requests discipline and understanding from people. At the same time, Mila and I are not just brushed aside. He never misses even the minutest detail and always ensures that we are taken care of and protected. He attends to us, wherever he is, in one way or the other, often through someone. All I know is that in the end our problem gets solved. Bear in mind, he does the same with almost everyone who is connected to him. Can you imagine the size of his workload in this world?

The numerous testimonials coming out each day through emails and blogs are a true reflection of what Mohanji is to the world. He is the same to me. He means the world to me. To many people across the world, he means the world to them too. He has touched many lives over the years. Many people have come and at the same time, many have left disillusioned too. As mentioned above, it is usually those who come with many expectations that leave disillusioned. Mohanji used to tell me: “This person will not stay. He has come with expectations. I cannot fulfil his desires. This is against his karma. I will not do anything against his karma.” Mohanji always stays with the truth and ethics of spirituality. I have seen him doing things which even made him sick and bed-ridden – people would come to him with serious problems and out of sheer compassion, he would remove their affliction and bring it onto himself, leaving them liberated. This used to worry me. Then I would remind myself “He knows what he is doing. He has clarity of purpose and a will of steel. I should not interfere.” Still love would overwhelm my heart.

Image 8-Still love would overwhelm my heart…
Still love would overwhelm my heart…

As I sit down to write my thoughts, a thousand faces travel through my mind. The faces of those whom Mohanji has touched over the last 7 years since I have known him. He has empowered thousands. He has touched so many lives across the globe positively, blessing them with exactly that what they were lacking in order for them to evolve further. Moreover, spirituality aside, he has enriched many people’s lives through consultancy work without any expectations. One can actually touch and feel the “Mohanji Factor” in people’s lives even though some may not want to accept it due to their ego. But, as I write this, I know that his existence on earth has empowered and continues to empower thousands. What is a life worth, if it is not lived for others? Many people have written blogs and sent in testimonials about the “Mohanji Factor” in their lives. Many have chosen to ignore it, calling it a coincidence. I sincerely feel pity if grace cannot be received and cherished gracefully. Mohanji has always kept on delivering in whatever form he chooses. He has never expected anything from or cared about those who love him or criticize him. He just made himself available and kept on delivering. The Mohanji Factor continues to touch many lives every moment. Needless to say, it makes me proud to be a part of this mission, to be a part of this grand movement of unconditional love.

Image 9-The Mohanji Factor continues to touch many lives every moment..
The Mohanji Factor continues to touch many lives every moment…

Mohanji has always believed in delivering fully and completely at all times, without any scheming or second agenda. But if there is one thing that Mohanji detests in people, it is artificiality, along with pretention and masks. Without naming anyone in particular, he would often say “These people need nothing from me. They will get nothing. They do not care for liberation. They are wasting my time – I can give them nothing. They came to share with me their pretension and insecurities. Some of them have come to compare me with another. I have nothing to do with it. They wasted my time and theirs.” On another occasion, I heard him tell someone on the phone “Oh, she has nothing to do with God realization. She is just after some spiritual sensations. I am the wrong person for that. My path is that of an annihilation of everything and merger with the supreme. All she needs for spiritual elevation if that is her true choice is a conscious shedding of her pretensions. She can reach the highest only by shedding her masks.”

Some of my friends tell me “You are like a single Mom. Your husband is never around.” That may be true physically, but Mohanji makes his presence felt to us in numerous ways all of the time. My husband called Mohanji is handling a large mission, connecting continents and a multitude of beings. He works more than 18 hours a day. He sleeps very little. Even if he sleeps, the same is used for a purpose which is not personal. In the moments when I would witness his barely noticeable breathing and enhanced radiance (signifying astral travel and work on other planes) I would be reminded that this is what I asked for and got blessed with – so how could I ever complain? I could not possibly imagine all the challenges that would come our way but was mentally prepared to accept all that would come with this decision. We even lived together for three years before we actually got married. I knew that he would belong to the world and I was happy that I would get to serve the world through him and together with him, which is what I always wanted to do in life. When I asked Baba in 2006 for a Master as a husband, what I actually meant was ‘May I marry only if that will further enhance my service to humanity and elevate me further. Nothing compares to a union through which one can celebrate and serve Love.”

Appearance of BABAJi on Mohanji’s Eye-card

Mahavatar Babaji

by Sandeep Mishra

With the permission of and with reverence to Mohanji, I am hereby writing my other divine experience.  Before narrating it, I would like to surrender and prostrate at the feet of my Guru Mohanji.  Being the Parabrahma, the supreme power, Mohanji is the only doer. I am an object and the use of “I” is just a grammatical necessity _/\_  J.

I do the Power of Purity mediation at home regularly with Mohanji’s permission.  On February 9th 2014, I attended a Power of Purity Mediation session in Mumbai for the first time.  I always wanted to have one of Mohanji’s eye-cards, as I only have a digital copy, not a proper paper eye card with “Unconditional love is your true nature” marked on it.

At this first session of Power of Purity mediation I was given an eye-card. I was very happy.  I wanted it and I got it J.  The mediation went well. I had a nice experience during the mediation.  Afterwards I took Prasad J and returned home happily. At home, before I went to bed, I took out the card and tried to connect with Mohanji. At that time I saw MAHAVATAR BABAJI in the lotus posture on Mohanji’s third eye. Moreover, I can see it now and all of the time!

Mohanji - Babaji appearing on his third eye

The next day I asked Mohanji about this and he said, “You are on the right track… Keep connecting. It is reaching where it should.” His words were more than a confirmation and assurance of higher elevation.

My mother is a simple minded woman and she is also a SADANANADA BABA devotee. She is very well connected to BABA. Whenever I start reading about any satpurusha (very holy and enlightened person), I generally don’t tell her so as not to confuse her. However, she always gets his vision or dreams of him. I spoke to Mohanji about this and he said it is a soul connection and that we all are connected J.

From the next day onwards, my mother started visioning white light in the form of NAAG (snake). I was not surprised and it was more than double assurance for me.

I know I am not worth much at all, and yet he has given me the wonderful gift of glimpsing the no mind state (timeless state). I now know what to strive for. I heartily thank you Mohanji. Thank you for your unconditional love, your attention and for everything. I know that I can give you nothing in return because everything is you, and everything is yours, even I am yours. Please keep us away from all mundane desires, from ego and jealousy. Please keep your blessing on each and every one of us.

Love you Mohanji _/\_  ❤

Importance of Mohanji’s Time

Written by Palak Mehta

quote-1

Respected Family and friends,

Maybe I’m not eligible to say this, but I’d rather voice my observations and appear silly, than live with the burden of not speaking up when I felt prompted to do so. So many people call Mohanji directly for every little thing, most of which have no depth or definite purpose. When a true bhakta calls from the heart, He appears anyway out of pure love and even gives Darshan in physical form (we have read so many experiences by devotees).

Cute smiling M, natureHe’s the busiest of us all! Not a second is spent idle. He’s operating in multiple dimensions, saving lives, liberating souls, leading various beings to light. His bhaktas are in so many planes of existence… even though sometimes it may appear that He’s attending a casual function or cracking jokes with us. Again, we’ve had numerous testimonials of His non-physical, simultaneous seva and life-saving operations reported by devotees. A lot of these have even been blogged. It’s also true that He doesn’t just spend time with anyone. There is always a larger purpose than what we perceive it to be. Tradition paves the way for Him.

He is asked thousands of similar questions by emails, Facebook messages, but each time before most of us even realize what is troubling us, He posts it as a status message (where everyone gets their answers to their satisfaction and no one is left waiting) or as a blog post or a lot of times gives individual signs of the solution to everyone.

testimonial-1

For Him all are One. All are Alike. All are pieces of God … and He treats everyone just the same with only the most genuine and the purest unconditional love… He is the incarnation of compassion who’s beyond duality. He blesses and loves even those who detest Him. He’s far beyond being conditional or having any expectations!

621428_10151172991903153_2056071689_oFor Him All are welcome. So many times during important meetings and work-related matters, people keep coming to meet Him… and guess what? He STILL obliges all. He includes everyone in it. At the cost of His own time, his own working space… We have seen it so many times! In fact always! Because how can an embodiment of pure unconditional Love with no ego and only compassion discriminate? That makes it Our duty to respect His space… His guidance will anyway always come from within our hearts. Let us not forget, Our Guru is completely self-sufficient. It’s US who need Him and not vice versa.

testimonial-2

Even when Mohanji was working as a CEO for a multinational in Muscat, he still replied to everyone, giving guidance to all, traveling worldwide, conducting satsangs and meditations free of cost, out of pure compassion. He’s never believed in selling spirituality. In days gone past, people practiced Guru Dakshina, giving back to your Guru in whichever way you can, whether it be in kindness, time, money, seva. Any way which suits your constitution.

There are people who just by taking His name, connect to Him and get everything. A lot of people have achieved the highest without even meeting Him physically, His consciousness gives us everything! Purity and Faith is all that’s needed to open up to His grace…Just living His teachings. Yet, as Mohanji says, people mail, call and message Him telling Him they want to meet Him but don’t move a finger to make it happen. Most of them fake it and then usually get busy with the worldly life and miss an opportunity to get Darshan of a living Master. Many are not even eligible to meet Him physically, but it’s His big heart, and compassion that He accommodates everyone. It is after lifetimes and lifetimes that we have got the blessing to have Him on the Earth.

testimonial-6

Now what breaks my heart is when we see Mohanji taking everything upon himself and literally infusing life force into people who had no hope for the future, changing their reality by giving their life a higher meaning, by giving them the energy to face reality, to go through their karma when things get tough, His grace protecting them from storms of life like a stone shelter, releasing them from so many problems… and after receiving all that, they forget about His blessings and attribute this energy to random ideas about spirituality that they have picked up. I’ve seen many go through these positive experiences because of Mohanji and then say that it was their astral connection with their archangels getting stronger! Be aware! ALL exist WITHIN Mohanji. Without consideration of Guru Dakshina, and even after all that grace, they’re still confused as to who their Guru is!!

220733_207547149275524_176140_oAfter Mohanji unconditionally gives everything, when it’s time to release His blessing in the form of time/seva/dakshina etc, people question, “Is He my Guru?” Ugh!!

I’ve seen Him take cancers on himself and burn them, incurable diseases on himself, people’s lifetimes of karmic trash on himself and burn it… In fact a lot of us have seen Him do that. He has to suffer that. His physical body has to suffer that, even if for Him it’s burning in just a few minutes/seconds, it does affect His lifetime on Earth. Yet once healed and cured, people find hundreds of excuses to forget this grace, let alone spread it to the world. Excuses like, “I wish to be in silence, I don’t like to post pictures of seva, so I don’t want to do the seva, I did a course on… the other day, maybe it’s that which is making me all spiritually tuned”.

And Guru’s grace is completely ignored. How we take His time and presence on the Earth for granted!

Those who are feeling the transformation and His energy will feel blocked if they’re not letting it out and contributing and spreading the love. I do so many times when I’m super busy and can’t do any seva. I feel stagnant because He is infusing us with His energy all the time and I’m not able to let it out and spread it. Those times I really pray to Him and try to surrender more and more… Those times, He always, always, always and always answers that internal call from the heart and the block is removed.

Those who cannot connect to His consciousness while He is in body will find it challenging to understand the path once He expands beyond His physical body. Mohanji is indeed a force… a force brighter than a thousand suns which you feel inside your heart… which will be ever so active even when He’s beyond His body. He doesn’t need a language to communicate to our physical presence nor us. All our thoughts exist within Him, so telling Him our plans is a silly and frail idea! 😉 Formalities and Being inauthentic with Him is deluding our own self! Full Faith or Zero Faith!

As He always says, being genuine is worth it!

My life is an example of His unlimited grace. A recent example is me shifting to another city alone, with no job in hand, limited time & savings.. only in complete Faith. Since 2013 beginning, several changes started happening and I started feeling a strong urge to move out of the city- Delhi, I happened to share this with Mohanji and He completely supported the idea and blessed me. Mohanji asked me to stay at His Pune Ashram and take care of it. I tried to avoid it, but After Him repeating that strongly, I got His message and just went with the flow. Just like hat, He converted me into an Ashramite. We started meditations here. All He asked me to do was to be flexible. I had no expectations from Him (and pray to remain without expectations all my life), but I knew for a fact before shifting that His grace would get me a job soon. I was certain. Within a week I got the job as a senior fine art teacher in a good school, while the only opening they had was for a junior one! When I was given the official letter a month later after joining, my salary had increased than what they had told me during appointment! It was the exact salary I’d mentioned to Mohanji that was ok for me when I met Him in Delhi.  Another experience was yesterday during blanket distribution, which you can read here.

There is no dearth of devotee experiences where Mohanji is saving lives, liberating them, protecting them while being physically present somewhere else.

We are living in a time where everything intangible such as spirituality is ridiculed or condemned. Saints and holy men are crucified. People have become addicted to scandals, craving for it. Saints are disrespected. This is a clear sign of the decay of the society. Instead of using the teachings of saints for personal elevation, people destroy the guru principle in themselves by scandalizing saints and expressing ingratitude. Pretentious morality is more highlighted than valuable teachings.

Many people come for personal advantages. If they fail in achieving that, they go out and complain or scandalize. They contaminate the minds of people. Many people are prejudiced towards the saints due to the scandals the media has profusely published. There is a statistics that 380 hours was spent by media to cover the Shankaracharya’s scandal. When the court could not find any fault and acquitted him, total time spent for covering that news was 3 minutes! Hence common man is biased. They would not see the truth. They will only see the negative publicity!

Please forgive me if this was too honest, but the way some people pretend in front of the Master, wasting His precious moments on the Earth, is so disheartening that I just really needed to share this today.

Love,

Tradition never leaves you

Written by Sumit Partap Gupta

Tradition never leaves us…once we embrace the tradition
Tradition never leaves us…once we embrace the tradition

With the Grace and blessings of our Master would like to share some key insights and hidden messages in the amazing blog “Born from the fire.”

This story awakens my understanding and throws light on many aspects of the eternal truths of our tradition. This truly opens one’s eyes..

Tradition never leaves us…once we embrace the tradition; it takes care of us always through time and space, through lifetimes which is an eternal promise. Atmananda Chaithanaya who is Aghora Baba himself found and met Rama Shastri. Rama who was living his life compassionately and doing his business ethically could easily recognize His Gurudeva.  It was his well-kept purity of inner space that allowed him that instant recognition. In today’s business world, due to greed for profits, most people never take care of their inner space and contaminate them unconsciously. Business also can be done in a pure way which benefits everyone. This is a great lesson to be learned. The advantage of being pure within is the gift of the “true eyes” to see.

When Atmanandaji  gave money to Aruna the second time to fetch some sweets from Rama’s shop, He was very much aware that Rama would not be in the shop and that his granddaughter would readily accept the money for the sweets.  The hidden message was that Atamanadji knew that Panduranga’s journey was about to get over and after eating the sweets, Panduranga’s last desire would be fulfilled and he would breathe his last. To cut Panduranga’s last karmic bond Atmananda himself gave money to Aruna for sweets. There are two aspects to it. The same morning, Rama Shastri had delivered sweets and food as usual.. Atmananda could have saved some sweets for Panduranga. He did not. Instead He chose to spend money from his pocket and buy more. In a way, as I understand, Atmananda fulfilled two debts at the same time. 1. He paid for the services rendered by the pious Rama Shastri. (There were no sweets in his shop. Atmananda materialized the sweets and also paid for it). Secondly, he indirectly paid Panduranga also, for his services, through the final fulfillment of his deep desire for sweets. And this also can be looked at as a kind of Dakshina or a gift of money a father might give to his son who is embarking on a long journey. Even though physical cash was not given, this can be considered as dakshina.

He is everything, yet he is nothing. Non-conformity in its perfection!
He is everything, yet he is nothing. Non-conformity in its perfection!

On the other hand Aruna’s mind didn’t understand the logic behind Atmananda’s action of sending him to fetch the sweets but he never questioned his Master. He never asked  “ Why “. A perfect sign of our tradition. The all-knowing master is never questioned and the ego, intellect and mind is totally surrendered at the feet of the master. His wish is the disciple’s command. We must also understand that a thought indeed sprouted in the mind of Aruna as to “WHY” which itself showed that he has indeed miles to go in surrender. Atmananda perhaps wanted to prove this aspect to Aruna too. That is probably why he chose Aruna for this errand. Atmananda was also about to leave his body. If Aruna does not shed his last remnants of resistance now, he may have to come back again into the birth-death cycle. A golden lesson indeed!

Aghora Baba represents Shiva, Vishnu & Shakti Bhaav. These are the three main aspects that constitutes three major paths of Hinduism. Shivaite path, Vaishnavaite path and the Shakti path (The goddess). (This is not Shaktipat, the transfer of energy from a guru to a disciple)  In other words, Aghora Baba represented the whole Hinduism. The Shiva Bhaav was evident from his face and appearance, celestial fragrance emitting from his body represented the Vishnu Bhaav, His action of carrying a skull always in His hand and dancing naked on the burning pyre along with His group portrayed His Kali Bhaav. So, he represented the whole aspects of Hinduism in its totality. He is everything, yet he is nothing. Non-conformity in its perfection!

It takes deep devotion and clear and clean inner space. The rest is grace.

Aghora Baba used to dance naked and be with naked women. People accused him of promoting prostitution and indulging in all kinds of bad habits but Aghora Baba represents   “The Source ” and One who is the source Himself is beyond any expressions, impressions and cannot be put into any frame of morality. In fact with His own life, he was mocking at the fragile morality of the villagers, who wear masks of morality at convenience. Deep fear held them back from attacking the powerful Baba head on. This is also another mirror to the society. A challenge to be fearless! Living in burial ground, that too with His disciples, fire rituals in funeral fire, dancing in fire etc signifies, total denial of any norms and total control over fear of all kinds. Modern man may call it insanity. But, Babaji’s life is more of a bold statement towards the fragile, fearful and tamasic society.

Aghora Baba is fearsome to the society. But, when he touched the young Rama Shastri, he had motherly love and kindness. He was kindness incarnate. This is a far cry from what the society thought of him (as a drunkard, womanizer and a mad man). Society gave him fears and Babaji removed his fears. Another sign of our tradition! General society often condition minds. It sows seeds of fears. A true guru removes all fears and instills faith and devotion instead. This was the transformation that Rama Shastri experienced. Inner purity was all that mattered for the blessings to flow.

Later years proved the selflessness of Rama Shastri and Babaji came back to bless him as Atmananda. And he was also blessed with the recognition of the familiar fragrance. There are many occasions in life where mind does not permit recognition when the action takes place. This takes grace. And Rama had sufficient grace to have this recognition. It takes deep devotion and clear and clean inner space. The rest is grace.

His all actions are purpose bound, just like his words. There is nothing wasted, even a breath.

Atmananda is unassuming, ordinary to public eyes, but extra ordinary to those who have uncontaminated inner space. This is typical of any Datta Guru. He has amazing siddhis, but will never display them for his benefit or to create an impression. His all actions are purpose bound, just like his words. There is nothing wasted, even a breath. This is a golden lesson for life. Waste nothing in life, everything is precious and god given. There is absolute clarity in thoughts, words and action. But, never interferes in karmic flow of others. Again, this is typical of our tradition. Every words or actions of his have multiple purposes. His visit to the place where we see him in this story has two or three different reasons. Panduranga’s fulfillment, death, Rama Shastri’s fulfillment, Aruna’s education, clearing karmic debts as well as promises etc. What we can perceive with our limited understanding is just the tip of the iceberg of the reality on which great saints operate. A great eye opener indeed!

Inner purity is all that matters for the blessings to flow.

The Shopkeeper’s uncle represented mindset of those people who look at life in a superficial way, they judge people immediately based on outward appearances and habits. They never care to go beyond the deceptive outward appearances sometimes taken by Higher Entities to distract people. They lose heavily in life.

The shopkeeper’s mother portrayed a mentality of a meek housewife who is neutral, influenced by both positivity and negativity time and again, a regular person full of fears. She is a typical housewife who has no voice of her own and is always afraid to leave her comfort zone, even if it costs the ultimate truth. Her conforming nature to the approved norms of the society despite evidences of truth otherwise.

The other lesson we can learn is that NEVER judge a Master from a worldly point of view and through other peoples opinion. Always listen to your heart and your own truth. Other’s words could be terribly deceptive.
