He and His Father Are One

Written by Viji Sagar, USA

Mohanji pada Pooja

 

It was a cold and dreary winter afternoon with a constant drizzle.  It was cold and wet, a perfect day to stay indoor cuddled up with a nice book.  One could feel the chillness  penetrating all the way to the bones.  None of this would stop me from driving an hour to bring home Mohanji’s padukas. I have been eagerly waiting for them a few weeks now, and I couldn’t wait any longer.

Once the padukas were home, they were received with full honor and arti was performed before being placed on the altar.  It was late when we came home so I had planned to do pada pooja the next day when I came back from work. Being the first day of the work week, I got extremely busy.  The same thing repeated the next day and the day after. A couple of days slipped by without doing the pada puja,  so I convinced myself that I would do the puja on Thursday which was an auspicious day anyway.

Thursday rolled around and I went through the usual routine of work and the long drive home completely forgetting about my commitment to do pada puja.  Around 7pm I was lazing around on the couch watching TV, when there was this urge for me to get up, because I had to do something, but just didn’t know what it was.  I tried to ignore it and focused on the show I was watching but that urge intensified to the point that I could not enjoy the show any more.  At the same time, I also noticed that my little dog was sitting in front of me just staring at me as if he wanted to say something. When I got up to get him a treat, he just walked to the altar and sat next to it wagging his tail, as if to remind me to do the pada puja.

I quickly got the stuff together for the puja and realized I did not have fresh flowers.  How could I do pada puja without fresh flowers for my beloved Mohanji’s padukas? So once again, Lady Tamas took over. I told myself that I would buy fresh flowers and do the puja on Friday morning L.  In the meantime, I decided to chant the Sai mantra and played the sai sahasarnama on You Tube from my phone. I left my phone in the next room and settled down on the floor to chant Sai mantra.  As I sat down to chant, I looked at Sai Baba’s pic and thought to myself, Baba is senior anyway, I will chant for Him on Thursday and tomorrow I will do the pada puja. It is absolutely ridiculous, the games the mind plays on you when you engage it.

I started the chanting and after just nine chants of the Sai mantra, miraculously the music switched over to Mohanji Gayatri mantra. I was shocked and confused. How could this happen? The Sai mantra was playing on YouTube and the Mohanji Gayatri was on iTunes?!!  The phone was in the other room so I could not have done it by mistake and there was no one else in the house. I dared not question or analyze further at this point L.  I picked up some viboothi, and placing it on the padukas instead of flowers, I completed the pada puja by chanting the gayatri.  I proceeded to perform arti and after bowing to Baba and Mohanji and apologizing for my ignorance the phone automatically switched back to sai sahasarnamam,  as if to tell me apology accepted J

Mohanji pada Pooja 1.jpg

There were multiple lessons for me in this episode.  1.There is no hierarchy in the guru parampara.  It is one unified force that works together for our evolution and ultimately liberation.  2.Material things (flowers, incense etc.) are not a requirement to show our love and reverence to our guru. It is all for our personal satisfaction. 3.) When needed, Gurus communicate to us through multiple mediums, be it a dog or an iphone. 4.) MOST IMPORTANTLY, if you make a commitment to your guru, he ALWAYS shows up with open arms to receive your offering of love.  Remember to keep your end of the commitment.

Many Mohanji family members were Sai Baba devotees first before they met Mohanji.  In my case it was reversed. Mohanji was my guru first before I became aware of Sai Baba.  Through this experience sharing I hope to help those who question the stature of Mohanji, or still see a distinction between Baba and Mohanji, to realize that HE and HIS Father are ONE.

Beyond the Mind Can See – Mai Tri Healing Experiences from UK

Shared by Subhasree Thottungal, Dec 2017

 Mohanji blessing

With complete surrender to Mohanji, I would like to share a few experiences from Mai Tri Healing sessions which have started recently in London. These clearly show  how we feel Mohanji’s  presence with us and see beyond what the mind can see!

Vijaya’s experience

On 2nd Dec there was the first one. Sister Vijaya was taking the healing. I surrendered completely to Mohanji before starting the process. The process went on very well where I had absolutely no feeling of my own presence, as if I wasn’t even there! I felt Mohanji’s presence through his energy flow.

When we completed the process, sister Vijaya got up with a big smile and said she actually saw Mohanji! She saw Mohanji walking from afar from dark towards her. Bright light was surrounding him. His face was completely shining.

Then He actually spoke to her, two sentences, which was quite relevant to her. She also said during the process, “My hand stayed at one of my chakras where I felt having more blockages. After the healing, I felt much better. Of course, I had no idea where the blockage had been before and I didn’t even realise where I was keeping the hand longer. As I said, I had surrendered myself completely and during the process I had no feeling of my own presence.”

Listening to her experience, I conveyed my gratitude to Mohanji for being present during the healing.

Anonymous Experience

The second experience happened on 7th Dec. With due respect, I am keeping the receiver’s name anonymous here. I was meeting this gentleman for the first time and I had no idea of his reasons for seeking healing. It’s not important or necessary for a healer to have any background at all. As the healer is merely a channel here. It’s Mohanji’s divine energy that does the healing.

So before starting the process, I surrendered completely to Mohanji and prayed to Him to be with us. When the process started, I felt very intense energy flow and at particular chakras. I also saw Mohanji sitting on the chair next to us (where he used sit when He visited my home earlier), dressed up in his casual jeans and T-shirt and looking at us very intensely. I smiled inside seeing that Mohanji is here with us. There was pin drop silence. Suddenly, from nowhere, rain started. The sound of raindrops on the window was very loud. I immediately recognised, this is an indication of divine energy present with us at that time. Healing finished. Rain stopped! I bowed down to this divine supreme energy and my heart felt gratitude to Mohanji.

Little did I know till I got the confirmation from Mohanji directly that, ” It wasn’t even rain. It was shower of grace”! Ah what a wonderful experience this is. To me who is being an instrument in this divine process and to the people who are receiving the divine energy directly!

Vincent’s Experience

Vincent and his wife have been Mohanji’s followers for quite a few years and have attended the retreat programmes with Mohanji in London a couple of times. Lately, he has been going through severe back pain. He came for the healing session on 19th Dec, promptly at the time he had agreed. His eagerness and enthusiasm showed his surrender to the divine masters and was a very positive start.

We started the healing session with surrender to Mohanji and with a prayer to be with us. I felt Mohanji’s presence and very calming and peaceful energy flowing through the entire time. When we completed the session, Vince was so much in awe of the positivity, relaxing and calming effect, especially since he had come with no expectations, as he said. He also had a beautiful experience during the session. He shared his experience as below, “Thank you for the Mai Tri healing session. I had come with no expectations. During the healing I saw an iron moving across 7 deity pictures. It took me by surprise and on the stomach area and the calf muscles started to contract. But I felt a great or massive tingling through the body. For 2 days I had the sensations and feeling joyful and relaxed. A lot of visions coming up mostly related to past lives too. I am very thankful for this session and to Mohanji for this healing energy.”

Nilesh’s Experience

Nilesh have received Mai Tri healing from Devi earlier this year as a distant healing, when he was in hospital for some illness. He had a very positive experience from that healing and he wanted to have the healing sessions again. Off late he was feeling very emotional and something was bothering him that he wasn’t aware of. However, he felt a lot of blockages needed to be cleansed. He came with lot of devotion for Mohanji and complete surrender. When we started the session, immediately, I felt Mohanji’s presence and a very intense energy. The energy was so strong especially in a particular chakra that I felt as if I was shivering, my lower spine was burning. I saw Mohanji very intense and like fire!

When we finished the process Nilesh said he felt Mohanji immediately and as he closed his eyes, he saw Mohanji. He felt strong energy entering his body but soon he felt very relaxed and calm.

From the experience that I felt, through this process of healing, Mohanji has definitely cleared some strong blockages for sure and given Nilesh the protection.

A few days after this healing when I met Nilesh, he conveyed that, since that session, he has felt a lot better, lighter and his emotional imbalance has gone. He definitely looked much happier.

Rajkumar’s Experience

Rajkumar has been suffering from a severe skin problem for the past 3 months, at his very old age. After trying a lot of strong medications, there was still no relief. While being desperate for a relief from this suffering, he came to know about Mohanji’s healing process. Rajkumar had had the opportunity to meet Mohanji earlier and is very fond of Him.

When I went to his house for the healing session I saw him in tremendous pain. His whole body, hands full of rash, swollen, right hand even had some fluid. He was very frustrated with this long lasting trouble and looked very angry, too. He was desperate for the healing session.

After the healing session Rajkumar felt very calm and his uneasiness and frustration and anger disappeared. He requested to have continuous sessions for a few days. During the healing, I felt so much compassion from Mohanji, hence I gladly agreed to go next two days to have the sessions.

The next day when I went, Rajkumar opened the door and he had a big smile on his face. He said he felt much better than before. He showed me his hand which had been swollen and had had fluid the day before, that was now normal and skin was drying up. I wasn’t surprised, as I knew Mohanji’s healing was doing the job. But definitely I felt so much gratitude for Mohanji’s love and protection.

We completed the continuous three healing sessions and each day, he was feeling better. While his skin condition was improving, he was certainly much happier and relaxed. There was a release from other emotions that were happening and he was very much aware of Mohanji’s healing doing the cleansing of blockages.

As I continue to conduct the healing sessions with complete surrender to Mohanji and His healing powers with unconditional, non-judgmental love and compassion for everyone who is coming to receive the healing energy, my heart fills with gratitude and immense love for Him. I am witnessing different experiences of different people and getting a glimpse of how Mohanji is working on everyone tirelessly, unconditionally.

Through this healing, I notice improvement in my own condition, too, physically and spiritually.

I have started to realise slowly why Mohanji asked me to start doing Mai Tri Healing! Being a tiny instrument of Mohanji’s consciousness is the fulfilment, total oneness with Para Brahma, the Supreme consciousness!

Koti Pranam at Mohanji’s lotus feet for having showered everyone with His unconditional love and the round the clock protection. 🙏❤🙏

Mohanji’s Divine Presence

Mohanjis Divine Presence 1

Shri Guro paramam rupam viveka chakshushomratam,

Mandabhagyaa na pashyanti andhah suryodayam yatha|

The absolute form of the guru is like nectar to those who can truly see. To those who cannot see through veil of illusion, the true form of the Guru is shrouded like the sunrise is to a blind man!

When one has pure devotion and surrender to the divine, divine will appear in any form. There have been many truly connected Mohanji’s followers, who have felt His presence in various occasions either via direct visions or even through indirect but realistic indications.

Two such sincere and honest experiences are described below, which clearly shows how Mohanji’s divine presence have been felt by these true devotees.

 

Mohanji is ever pervading!         Mohanjis Divine Presence 2

Experience shared by Mr. Sankaranarayanan, Priest, Chenakkathoor Temple

I was in Sabarimala temple assisting the Chief Priest during the season from November 2017 till mid Jan 2018.  Lord Ayyappa temple Sabarimala, situated on a hilltop, is located in a forest Pathanamthitta, Kerala.

Lord Ayyappa is the son of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu who appeared as “Mohini”, the beautiful lady, was born to bring an end to the demon Mahishi. Ayyappa, as a baby was adopted by the king Rajashekharan of Panthala and named as Manikanda. Later on, at about the age of 12, taking the vow of celibacy, Manikanda left the palace and went up the hill to Savarimala and resided there as Lord Ayyappa.

Mohanjis Divine Presence 3-6

This temple is one of the most sacred temples in India and is open in specific days of a year. Reaching the temple is not so easy. Pilgrims have to walk on foot about 4 km through the thick forests or get to the river Pamba and then climb the hill for about 5 km. In order to come to the temple, the devotees have to follow strict traditional practices, rituals, preparations and dress codes. In preparation for their visit, pilgrims wear black beads around their neck, dress in black or blue mundus/dhotis and abstain from the consumption of non-vegetarian food and alcohol for 41 days. They also take a vow of celibacy for the 41 days prior to their pilgrimage.
Mohanjis Divine Presence 7-8

Despite the strict rules and physically straining path to reach the temple, 100s of thousands of pilgrims arrive in the season when temple is open.

Mohanjis Divine Presence 9-10

Mohanjis Divine Presence 11 center

To go inside the temple to the sanctum sanctorium, the pilgrims have to climb the 18 steps called “Pathinettapadi”. These steps signify a very important message, that in order to reach the divine, you must be free from the 5 human senses, 8 negative attitudes (ashtaragas – kama, krodha, Lobha, Moha, Madha, Maltsarya, asooya, dhumb, 3 Gunas (Satva, Rajas, Tamas) and the rise above knowledge and ignorance.

When you rise above all these 18 steps, you reach Ayyappa, divine, you become one with Him!

During the end of December 2017, a few people from Chennai City visited Sabarimala. They had met Mohanji, who was visiting Chennai at that time. Mohanji had directed them to meet me as he was aware that I am in the temple in this season assisting the chief priest. They approached some of my colleagues to meet me for some special rituals and gave Mohanji’s Card to one of them. Later on my colleague handed over the card to me. I arranged the rituals that the devotees requested. I had also taken tokens for special darshan for them in the evening. However, I could not meet them after the rituals. I searched them everywhere but I could not find them amongst the crowd.

The Chief Priest and his brother saw Mohanji’s divine Card (for the first time) and were amazed by the power of Mohanji’s Glowing Eyes.

During the evening pooja session, one of my colleagues came to me and told me “Sankaran, your Guruji has come to the temple for darsan! I ran towards the sanctum sanctorum to see Mohanji. I was deeply surprised because I knew that Mohanji was not in Kerala and how could they see Mohanji here in Sabarimala! And there was no warning from anybody that Mohanji was coming here. On the way, many of my other colleagues also told me the same as they all had physically seen Mohanji. One of them even asked me whether we should book accommodation for Him. All 18 of my colleagues saw Mohanji! I was in a total shock and searched Mohanji but I didn’t see Him anywhere!

It was evident that Mohanji appeared in sookshma (subtle form) in the temple. His appearance had multiple messages. This showed a deep meaning to some of those people who were skeptical and even had remarked that these modern gurus are all fake.

To me, it indicated Guru’s protection and love towards me, that even though he was in Chennai at that time, He responded to the skepticism or some of my colleagues to save me from any kind of explanation or proving to anyone about my Guru.

Mohanji takes care of His disciples, as He can take care of Himself. He does allow people to fall in frequency by not understanding Him though. But, when it is a question of protecting a true follower, He never misses.

I clearly understood Mohanji is everywhere and we cannot understand HIM till we rise up those 18 steps to reach to the divine himself!

Deep gratitude my Guru for your timely actions and showing me every time your presence. Thank You!

Power of Purity!  Mohanjis Divine Presence 14 left

Experience of Mrs Nalini as shared by Devadas from Palakkad

Mrs Nalini is about 65 years old and have been practising Power of Purity Meditation at the Shirdi Sai Baba temple in Palakkad for last 2 years. Right from the day 1, she has had visions of Mohanji very vividly.

Recently, one day she called my wife Anila and said, “You know, Mohanji came near me three times today. First time it was with white kurta and dhothi, it was blue kurta and saffron dhothi second time and final one was with white kurta and saffron dhothi wearing black slippers. I could feel his breathing falling on my hands”. Anila explained about her strong connection with Mohanji.

Mrs Nalini is used to telling us these kinds of experiences from her first Power of Purity meditation.

Sometimes she will see Mohanji standing in water and blessing her, sometimes Mohanji will become Krishna and bless her. Similar to what 75 year old Taiji from Delhi had experienced which she converted into Sahasra naam of Mohanji (thousand names), Mrs. Nalini has also started seeing Mohanji in many forms. Devotion, connection and conviction draws the master to you and he appears to you as per your flavour and intensity of connection.

Mohanjis Divine Presence 16 left

When Mohanji visited Palakkad in December 2017, a few of us were sitting with Mohanji having a small satsang. He casually asked Anila about the meditations in Palakkad. She started talking about the general aspects of it.

Suddenly Mohanji asked Anila, “Did that lady tell you about my visit to her house?” We were amazed that the experience that Nalini aunty shared with us was what Mohanji was telling us too! It was like a shock wave.  But we all realized once again, Guru is everywhere, we just need to have the eyes to see him! Another realization. Deep gratitude. Jai Mohanji!

Honest and sincere experiences like these only confirm the below verse from Guru Gita, that Lord Shiva Himself had explained to Devi Parvati about Guru and Guru principle.

“Akhanda Manadalakaram Vyaptam yena Charaacharam

Tadpadam Darshitam Yena Tasmai Sri Guruve Namaha”

 

Salutations to Shri Guru, who has revealed that state which pervades the entire sphere of this Universe, which is composed of animate and inanimate objects.

 

Blessed are those souls, who in this life, are able to realize the value of Guru principle and can feel the presence of Guru in every form, every moment, everywhere!

How Mohanji Changed My Life

Mohan's Universe - Palak Mehta.jpg

By Palak Mehta

It’s not possible to stop time. We either move with it or stagnate. There are so many lessons that can be missed out and so many subtleties that fade away if not caught, documented or remembered. That’s exactly the stage I am at right now. Time is moving me and I have no control over it. I have no control to stop, relax or express gratitude. It’s very easy to forget the truth, you know. Firstly, we don’t understand the truth or see it. Secondly, if we get to see even a glimpse of it through a God-given opportunity, how does one prevent one’s mind from polluting it? What if distractions or emotions take the better of me and I miss this golden opportunity of lifetimes to stay with the truth. If I don’t stop for a moment now, it will all fade away becoming faint first and then non-existent eventually.

That’s why this blog is more for my sake than for anyone else. I need this to hold on to the glimpse of truth which has been shown to me and not let it fade away. This is my story – some pieces have been difficult to accept, some have overwhelmed me with love, and some have highlighted my weaknesses. If I could go back to my childhood and envision a life for myself, it wouldn’t have been half as magical as it is right now. The only reason for that is MOHANJI who many know as a person or a Master but to me has been a personification of the God energy itself.

Why is life so deeply satisfying now? Why do I feel there is a purpose to life? Why am I not embarrassed anymore to be myself rather than what’s expected from a traditional Indian girl? Why am I not disempowered? Read on and you will find some crazy adventures, some really tough times and most importantly some ‘subtle showers of enormous grace’. It’s that grace that has been hugely at play. An atheist would not believe it, a dubious mind would question it. But heck, this grace is so real for me because the experiences were so tangible. I feel that even the human mind cannot deny it. It’s simply what happened. It is my experience.

Mohanji and Palak in Kathmandu Hotel.jpg

When I was in college, a seemingly “random” decision led to the most important meeting which gave meaning and purpose to my life. My friend had invited me for a meditation during a phase where life had become a rollercoaster. Uncontrollable challenges and mishaps bottled up with emotions and expectations. I had a very good childhood and my parents gave me everything I wanted, my sister had and has loved me throughout, friends have always been there by my side, my boyfriend at the time had always stood by me. Around the time I was in college, things began to get scary, to say the least. Relationships around me started turning ugly, friends couldn’t understand what I was going through, my boyfriend stopped supporting me, my family was going through their own troubles. I was a wreck! I did everything – from reiki to pranic healing to writing down my feelings and detaching, everything was a momentary relief. With each hard blow to my expectations, I kept getting disappointed, hurt and detached.

It was at that time my friend told me about Mohanji and a meditation that was going to happen. I looked at his blog but my reaction was neutral. When the date for the meditation came near, I had caught a bad flu and was extremely sick, weak and bedridden. But I had a hunch that I must go and attend this meditation. I got a nice vibe about the event – very subtle and not overpowering. Believe me, when I tell you, I suddenly got the energy to get up from my bed, walk down the staircase and go for the meditation. I was delayed by 15 minutes and told my friend Samira that I might miss the meditation. She replied and said that the organizers had just announced that they would wait for a bit more because more people were expected. Upon reaching, the first person I saw was Mohanji sitting outside the venue. He smiled at me and we exchanged a namaste (a traditional Hindu greeting with folded hands). I didn’t think much about Him after that and went straight inside. The meditation was a nice experience. We were all blessed with Shaktipat by Mohanji. We got his eye card which I kept in my wallet.

I moved on in life and forgot all about it. I never made an attempt to get in touch with Mohanji’s team. However, as time passed by and I looked back one of the days, I realised how my life had completely changed in the past 10 months. Not only did I get physical answers from Mohanji to my questions but my blockages were also removed in these months. Blockages that had been slowing me down for 4-5 years or more! Situations had completely changed. I myself was more empowered to spontaneously detach from things that didn’t serve me well. Now I had done other meditations and healing too but I knew it very strongly that attending that one meditation with someone called Mohanji changed my life.

10646896_895319163829306_3540731882325028169_n.jpg

I just didn’t feel the need to do other techniques, or run around looking for answers. I was spontaneously losing interest in college and superficial relationships. I wanted to find out more about myself, my purpose in life, etc. My yoga teacher told me that I should search for a Guru. I actually smirked, A Guru, how, who, where? I never actively looked for anyone. More questions sprouted out, yet no one’s answer ever satisfied me. A couple of times I thought of messaging Mohanji but doubted, ‘What if He’s very religious and biased?’ Haha! It sounds funny to think about it now. 🙂 Finally, as more months passed by, I decided to message Mohanji on Facebook and ask him a question. His answer shocked me. It was a simple question but this reply cannot come from a human mind. I was certain. I was in awe and instantly in love with Him. What I felt was God. My creator. It’s the best feeling in the world.

I met Mohanji in 2009. My perception of life has completely changed since then. The tests of life continue unabated but I feel so lucky and blessed that I have His guidance to guide me at each and every stage of my personal and spiritual transformation. Mohanji always says that the level of acceptance of everyday life is a sign of spiritual transformation. He has given us the courage to accept life as it comes. A few years after my graduation, around 2012, I had a deep urge to move out of Delhi – the city I had grown up in. I was getting stagnated and saturated. I wanted fresh air. The energy in Delhi just didn’t suit me anymore. I was feeling miserable and depressed. I just had to get out and find myself again. In India, it was uncommon for girls to live independently away from their family. Most people objected to this idea while very few people close to me were supportive of my decision.

I took a decision to move to Pune. I only had enough money to survive a month or two. I had packed my bags and decided to just go along with what life would bring. Needless to say, I was quite anxious to be in a new city, with no friends, family, job or much savings. The future was uncertain. I shared my decision with Mohanji. Like a perfect mirror, He did not interfere in my journey. He asked me not to worry and ensured me that there would be a decent place to sleep and the protection and food will also come. These blessings from Him and the tradition of the white Masters pacified me quite a bit.

11403363_10152975441797444_8458005787632214113_n.jpg

Mohanji mentioned about the Pune ashram. He had never visited that ashram. Since His activities in Pune were less, it was unlikely for Him to go there as well. Since it was unutilized, He had chosen to keep it closed to avoid running expenses, etc. Nobody was staying there at that time and He offered me to stay there. It was a rent-free space where I would be practically alone that would help me settle down. This was a big blessing because I was being given a full-fledged house without any cost and, most importantly, without conditions. Mohanji never asked me for anything in return for this gift.

Now that I was on my own, I had to instantly get a job. It was a choiceless situation and I couldn’t afford any delays. I had actually lied to family and friends in Delhi that I already had a job in Pune so that they won’t panic and keep calling me all the time. I started to feel nervous and anxious about the future. Everything was uncertain. On the very first day that I landed at Pune, I went for an interview for a teacher’s position in a school. The kids were speaking Marathi and that scared me even more since I didn’t understand the language. 🙂 I looked for more job opportunities. I applied for the position of a senior fine arts teacher and had a particular salary in mind. However, when I was interviewed, they said that position was not available anymore and offered me the position for a junior fine arts teacher with a much lesser salary. I was quite bummed. I thought to myself, How am I going to survive? I was not at all confident teaching junior classes plus needed the salary of a senior teacher.

I came back home depressed and decided to call Mohanji even though I was not sure if I would get him on the phone. He himself picked up my call. I was crying. He asked me what the problem was. I explained how nervous I was and worried about my future and getting a secure job. He asked me a straight question. “What is your expectation of salary? Remember, you have no cost for stay, electricity, and water”. That was a huge shot of awareness that certain things in my life were taken care of. Suddenly He said “Go back to your employer and tell them that you are ready to join. I shall do what I can”. I did exactly that. After hanging up with him, I felt waves of peace and calmness. The Master always does His job! I decided to take it easy. Mohanji had removed the fear from me.

Later on, I found out that Mohanji was en route to Badrinath with two companions and they had to return back from Joshimath due to inclement weather. It had been all over the news. There were huge cloudbursts which caused flash floods in the river Ganga leading to landslides which destroyed the roads. Nobody knew the last time when the Ganga was so furious. Close to 50,000 people had been swept away. Mohanji was stuck in the floods in Joshimath in North India when I called Him. Can you believe it? And I was worried about such petty things.

Anyway, in a few days, I decided to follow up, as suggested by Mohanji, on the interview I had given as a junior fine arts teacher. When I went to give my final round of interview, I was shocked to be offered a job for the senior most fine arts teacher! When I went to pick up my appointment order, I was truly surprised to see the salary printed exactly the same amount that I had told Mohanji as my expected salary. I could not believe my eyes. Mohanji casually said he would do what he can. But, he did exactly what I had asked for! But not before making me aware of the grace at work and the blessings that have come my way. My heart was filled with gratitude.

Mohanji works subtly. You will not even know that He is working. He is unassuming. You cannot catch Him at work. He never promises. But He delivers if you have unshakeable faith in Him. He allows you to be with Him or leave Him. But, He maintains availability of His energy. Energetically, He is always available to each and every one who loves Him. And He indeed does His job. I know that Mohanji has been literally living out of a suitcase ever since He left his job – traveling and moving relentlessly. He gave me the stability of a place even when He Himself had never been in one place physically for months if not years. As I write this, I realise His sacrifice for my sake. Something that He does all the time for all of us but never displays and, most often, even plays down.

11140106_826829890717465_7050583810771725477_n.jpg

I have to share another miraculous experience. After almost 2 years of working in the school, I had stopped enjoying it and decided to leave the job. I was fine with leaving it but didn’t know what I could do instead. All good paying schools had the same restrictions and I was always into alternative education. The thought of joining another regular school as a teacher was depressing! I had no clarity and discussed it with Mohanji. I was passionate about graphic designing and it was something I had just picked up over the years after Mohanji had first introduced it to me with Photoshop. Mohanji suggested that graphic designing or web designing were also good fields for me. The thought of that job was exciting for me and Mohanji blessed me. I decided to take a risk and applied for the job of preferably a web designer else a graphic designer. I won’t say I was an expert at it at all and had no professional training or experience in it. I made a small portfolio, learnt a few tricks from YouTube and started job hunting. My mantra – Mohanji is with me. That’s all that mattered. What happened next was amazing!

My friend Kirti told me that there are openings for the job of a graphic designer in an office near her. I went to apply and found out that they had openings for web designers instead. Now that sounded even more exciting! But again, I had zero experience in web design. I had heard they don’t pay much but I decided to apply anyway. During the interview, we had to design a mock website in 2 hours. Everyone in the room, except me, got 2 hours to do it. The HR person gave me one whole day to make what I wanted to make. It’s uncanny. I like to design at my own pace and being new to the field I was very slow. But the time I got helped me so much. No one else amongst all applicants got a chance like this! They not only offered me a job, but gave me a senior web designer’s position with a much higher salary than the other applicants! It was unbelievable and 100% Mohanji’s grace.

By His blessings, I always got a decent job and salary and focused on settling down in Pune. The energy at the Pune ashram was beautiful and I lived there all alone rent-free for about 3 years. I cannot thank Sainath Wutukur enough for putting this as a part of his donation for Mohanji especially at a time when I needed it the most to settle down. I really wanted that isolation and peace and a chance to be with myself. Mohanji hardly ever visited there physically yet one could immediately feel the high energy upon entering. My cleansing had begun.

I was amazed to see how Mohanji and the tradition had protected me through this rough transition phase through their unconditional support never expecting anything in return. What the solitude in the ashram gave me for 3 years will forever ground me and is truly irreplaceable. Deep cleansing happened to me in the ashram. For the first year, I would simply sit down and cry. I had no idea where these emotions were coming from. But I would simply observe them pass me by. Everything I had taken on from other people, the heaviness, the concepts, the emotions, the blockages, so on and so forth. I would feel myself going through the removal of layer after layer with the challenge of not getting bogged down by the present tests coming my way.

Life was liberating as well as very challenging after that. In the middle, there was a phase in 2014 where things became very tough at work. I started to feel horribly stuck and sad and felt that nothing was working out for me. I have mostly been a positive person, but that was a very low phase. I couldn’t be with Mohanji, do the work I wanted to and had no friends and family around. The Kailash with Mohanji 2014 pilgrimage had been announced and I felt a deep pull to go to Kailash but didn’t have the money or any stability to go. The future was uncertain. Since I was in school, I wanted to be on my own but now I was getting worried about my decision. I was feeling so low that I didn’t know if I had the inner strength to be positive anymore.

One of those days, I happened to speak to Mohanji on the phone. In front of Him, I cannot hide my feelings. Planned or not, everything that I feel pours out. I was sad and heard His voice and started to cry (no, that’s not all I do, promise!) and told Him how sad I was in general and that I was feeling so stuck not to be able to do the things I wanted to do. I could not be with Him. I couldn’t even go to Kailash. That instant He told me in his firm voice that he’s taking me along with him. I told him that I can’t afford the trip. He said, “Don’t worry about that, no thinking is needed from your end. You are going and I am taking you. Period.”

10502030_674569922610130_4376683331156396163_n.jpg

I was speechless. The trip was expensive. I had done nothing for Him or His mission to deserve such an opportunity. I had contributed practically nothing. And He has never asked for anything from me. Ever! His support had always been unconditional. He always wanted to make everybody happy and I thought it was such a gesture. But this costs money. Lots of money! How will I ever repay Him? Travelling with Mohanji to Kailash was the last thing I could’ve expected and wondered what I had done to deserve this. He said it again and asked me to start exercising and prepare for it.

But why did He offer to take me now for such an expensive journey for free and pay all my expenses? I’m deeply indebted to those who contributed and sponsored my trip, I wish I can do the same for someone someday. The Kailash yatra (pilgrimage) is not only a blessing for an individual but also for the ancestors and the entire family. This was purely unconditional and, till date, Mohanji hasn’t asked me ever to pay back for the trip. I didn’t know the reason behind so much grace but all I know is that from the day I met Him in 2009, I’ve just held onto Him through thick and thin. Yet this was clearly something Mohanji did out of His way. Especially when He himself hosts most of His programs for free and has the rest of the programs at just around the cost price.

Again, the reason for this I only understood later. No one goes to this sacred place unless they are called. I was meant to go. The time was right but I had no means to go. But only a true Master knows what’s needed for us and at what time. I needed Kailash at that time to shift my life and open the way forward and Mohanji obviously knew that. A true Guru is only interested to raise you in awareness. He neither cares about any ‘thank you’ nor does He expect anything in return. It’s easy to write this theoretically but to be like that all the time is a rarity. Such masters are very rare.

My Kailash yatra was filled with blessings and miracles. 2014 was the year of Dev Kumbh where one parikrama (circumambulation) equals 12, and we only went for the Outer Kora. My schedule was Kailash busy during those days. While most people in the group had been exercising for months for the pilgrimage, I hadn’t exercised for even one day or prepared for it. But I still managed to complete the Kailash yatra fit and fine! All sheer Grace! Only I know how low my stamina levels were and how unprepared I was for the yatra. Before the parikrama of Kailash began, I did a parikrama of Mohanji to take His blessings. My Guru is the way to Kailash for He himself is Kailash. All is within HIM.

Several other miracles happened during and after the trip. But mostly, many of my life’s blockages went away after Kailash. It was almost like Kailash a new life. Had I not gone there, I would’ve still been living with all that baggage. It’s hard to even imagine that now. I was so passive and wouldn’t always be able to stand up for things or do things I felt I needed to do. I would get emotional at each stage which would disempower me. I wouldn’t consciously take the leap to let go of my fears at that time. I felt insecure because I was on my own. But all this changed after Kailash. Kailash is a powerhouse. It purifies you. To maintain the purity at all times later is our job.

The first year Mohanji went to Kailash with a group, a lot of cleansing happened to everyone after that. So I was expecting something similar in this second pilgrimage too and had a hunch that there would be a lot of tests after Kailash. But honestly, nothing had prepared me for what was to come. Some people close to Mohanji started disconnecting from Him. It starts with having expectations from a Master or putting Him in a frame and judging Him and then eventually leading to negativity. These were people close to me too who I deeply cared about. But they started accusing Mohanji and a lot of His followers, about several things.

The first time I heard of people maligning Him and accusing so many people around him for various things, I was in disbelief. I knew people who were trying to pull Him down and even loved them yet it was shocking to see how they could twist things around. Some completely denied their own experiences and started believing others’ words. The people who doubted their faith and trusted others’ words did not bother to talk to Mohanji directly even once. I was also tested but I could not properly speak up. I was frozen with disbelief. Now I realize that passivity is equal to ingratitude. The one who stays silent when adharma (unrighteousness) is being done is as complicit in the crime as the one doing it. In fact more so, since staying silent when a wrong is being done to someone is akin to stabbing them in the back.

My experience over the years has shown that the time when the mind gets clouded, when you do not want to accept certain things is the best time to ask your GU-RU for light. That’s the best time to surrender to your Guru and he will 110% hold your hand and answer each doubt that you have. You will be amazed how silly such doubts would be. But during testing times, they seem huge. But if you approach Him with ego and accusations as many did, that’s exactly what He will project. Because He is a true mirror. He has nothing to prove. The tradition allows your free will if you’ve made up your mind to disconnect.

There were many who said that they have surrendered to the tradition and the tradition says that disconnecting is the right path. How very funny 🙂 sometimes they say that Sai Baba bought them to Mohanji and once their faith shakes they say that Sai Baba said that there is no need for an external Guru. How can you discard the living Guru in front of you because your mind fluctuates? And never bother to clarify with Him directly? What kind of surrender is this? When all this was happening, I was shocked and saddened to hear the accusations on Mohanji, on so many others and on me. Mohanji told me, “Palak, people don’t understand unconditionality. They cannot imagine a relationship without any hidden agendas.” For years, since college Mohanji had protected me and blessed me. I had numerous miracles of His grace before moving to Pune. I have felt what true love feels like – unemotional, joyful, fearless, empowered, radiating and unconditional – all of this from the time I met Mohanji. My life got meaning since the first time I asked Him my first question. How could I suddenly deny all my experiences?

My near and dear ones are very accepting and okay with my life choices now. There is a lot of love and support from them as well. But when I was tested and life was tough, none of these people were there. None of them could understand what I was going through. None of them were ready to accept my free will. Mohanji, being a true Master knew how tough it was for me karmically and supported my journey. Most of what passes for love in this world is conditional – with expectations. But I have tasted that unconditional love from Mohanji especially when I needed it most and He never expected anything from me in return nor have I repaid Him in any significant way. Right from helping me get independent, stabilizing me personally and professionally, helping me get life skills and being my father, mother, friend and guide through thin more than thick. And I am so grateful for that. I thank Him deeply for unconditionally assisting me in my journey without expectation. I can proclaim this, without a shadow of doubt, that I am today where I am because of Mohanji and I can never be grateful enough or forget that ever.

I end this article with the lyrics of the Krishna Das song – “Mere Gurudev” (My Guru Lord) which sums up my gratitude for Mohanji.

Mere Gurudev, charanon par sumana shraddha ke arpit hai

Tere he dena hai jo hai wahi tujhko samarpit hai

My Gurudev, I offer these flowers of my faith at your feet

Whatever I have, you have given to me, and I dedicate it all to you.

Na priti hai pratiti hai, nahi puja ki shakti hai

Mera yeh man, mera yeh tan, mera kan kan samarpit hai

I have no love, nor do I know you.

I don’t even have the strength to worship you,

But this mind of mine, this body of mine,

my every atom is dedicated to you.

Tum he ho bhaav may mere, vicharon may, pukaron may

Banaale yantra ab mujhko mere sarvatra samarpit hai

You are the only one in my heart and my thoughts.

You are the one who I call out to.

Now Make me your instrument…all I am I offer to you.

With endless love,

Palak Mehta

Blessings through His Eyes

Sujata Joshi, UK, December 2017

I have had a truly amazing experience! I have been going through a ‘spiritual crisis’, for about couple of years. While being very strongly connected to my Guru and guided constantly by him telepathically, my life was going through a big testing phase. The energy surge because of the Kundalini rising has been something that I was struggling to cope with. Social isolation, physical ailments, loss of sleep and hunger: my body was a mess!

I was guided by my Guru to seek help from Mohanji. Of course, I have been following Mohanji’s blogs, posts, youtube video, etc, all guided by my own Guru (with whom, I have only telepathic communication).

When I reached out to Mohanji, he gave me assurance and advise on what to do, with unconditional love. And as soon as I followed Mohanji advice and guidance, I had this amazing experience. I would like to honestly explain this.

Today, as I received Mohanji’s speedy response to my message.  I followed his guidance and began vertical breathing. After thirty minutes, as he said in his message, I chanted the Shiva Mantra Mohanji had kindly sent me. I realized that my body had relaxed and the unpleasant intensity of the situation had disappeared. I could hardly keep my body upright, as the tension from last three nights had disappeared.

Somehow I managed to get into bed, though I was too relaxed to know how. I slept deeply so soundly that in fact, it felt longer, though it had only been one hour!
Eventually, as I slowly awoke, the mantra I was given by my Gurudev for protection, was automatically chanting in my head. I felt uneasy again and thought, not again! However, my intuition guided me again to search on Mohanji’s Facebook page, though I didn’t know what I was looking for at the time. Eventually, my fingers stopped at this photo of Mohanji’s eyes.

eyes

 

I don’t know what I was doing, but somehow I felt to hold it in front of my eyes and focus on one eye at a time, at specific intervals.

For about an hour, I experienced intense blocks of heavy energy lift up from the back of my head. I was guided to see how I acquired these burdensome emotions as a small child and that they were due to certain forced and manipulated emotional overloading. But it was too strong for me to unhook from on my own. I experienced Mohanji’s strength in dislodging these blocks, as they lifted up in coiled snakelike formations and reached the top of my head. But It was impossible to stay focused until they release from a hole like space at the top.

kundali

Each time I felt weak, I felt Mohanji’s presence holding me strongly and sending even more strength through his eyes. It went on for quite a while, about an hour.  But I did feel slack at one point due to the intensity of the situation. At this point, I felt a little ‘lull’  – like mother would cradle sick child. As if to re-invigorate me, I felt a glimpse of Mohanji’s eyes through my closed eyes, in the backdrop of Kailash shikhar.

I felt rejuvenated and the remaining blocks were also lifted and released from top of my head as Mohanji kept sending more and more energy. My head shook violently from side to side, as it always does if energy is not able to flow through my system. Today, that stagnant lump of heavy emotions was blown apart, by Mohanji’s powerful loving gaze. I cannot describe the feeling of elation and lightness I experienced as a result of this very difficult, yet liberating episode. I can tell you, it was not easy to release these energetic blocks, with which I have suffered all my life.
SJ and MjiMohanji’s presence felt to me like that of Lord Shiva’s; powerful and so understated, innocent like a child. Very simple, very unassuming. 

I cannot begin to thank Mohanji for this selfless act of subliminal protection, though I have never physically met him or known him personally.

After I shared this experience with Suubhasree, she encouraged me to write about it. It is not natural for me to publicly share my experiences for fear of seeming self-important or delusional. But I cannot deny the immense difference this episode has made in my life-quality. The clarity of perception and openness to share are the most beautiful presents I received as a result of this.

It doesn’t end there, though.  After sharing the experience of the release of energy blockages, I had visions of Kailash and Mansarovar, repeatedly and clearly, for several days. It had an important distinction: Kailash in my perception (my third eye) got brighter, kept rising up until it became a brilliant, white and gold pillar of light.I had no idea why, or what it meant, but it felt very positive to have the darshan. (I am really a Krishna devotee). I couldn’t understand why I received darshan of Kailash, though I do greatly revere Lord Shiva as well!

shiva-mount-kailashAs I shared this, I closed my eyes again. Instantly, I felt immense joy! There was dancing!  Lord Shiva was dancing! The excitement and laughter of an innocent little child were contagious!

I feel so privileged to be part of this group of friends who encourage you to share and support your experiences.

The grace of selfless, unconditional divine love truly flows through this amazing instrument called Mohanji.
Long may it continue.

In love and gratitude 🙏🏽 to Mohanji

My Master,  MOHANJI… unconditional love and unlimited grace personified

By Mohana  BhaktiPriya

My humble pranaams at his lotus feet.
To write anything about Shri BRAHMARISHI  MOHANJI  will be just like lighting a matchstick before the mighty Sun. All the grace and the love he showers on us so silently cannot be put into mere words. However, I will make a small effort to do that with his grace. In this context, the use of the word “I” is just a grammatical necessity. Otherwise, it’s all HIM. My Praana (life force), my Shakti (energy), and my Aatma(soul). Before narrating the blissful experiences with Baba (as I affectionately call Mohanji)  I would like to talk about some of my experiences from my childhood till date that have paved the way for a beautiful and divine connection with Mohanji.

Advent of Masters in My Life 
images

When I was a mere 13-year-old, I was graced with the opportunity of reading the world famous  Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda in my mother tongue Telugu. I enjoyed the book very much except for the technicalities of Kriya Yoga which were nonunderstandable at that age. I could understand the longing of Shri Yogananda for the Lord Supreme and his Guru. It was like  I was present there with him in all his experiences. And the truth that God or Sadguru is the only permanent companion who loves you unconditionally and stays with you forever even after many lifetimes, was etched deep in my mind. I read and re-read the book many times all through these years. Every time I read it, I felt immense bliss.

Years passed by, and when I was doing my postgraduation, I got deeply connected to Shri Shirdi Sai Baba through one of my friends. When I first visited Shirdi and had the divine darshan of Shri Sai Baba, I felt I had reached home at last. Tears were flowing incessantly by just looking at the statue of Shri Sai Baba. It became very painful for me to leave  Shirdi and Baba. After that, I read the Sai Satcharitra and it made my connection with Shri Sai more deeper.

After my marriage, I experienced Sai’s grace at every step, though it was a big cleansing process. My parents are very spiritually inclined, non-orthodox and easy going and it was my father who introduced me to the Autobiography of a Yogi. It was a sea change for me after marriage, as the family I married into was very orthodox, ritualistic and didn’t believe in Sadgurus. But Shri Sai Baba was always with me, taking care of me. I had to go through many trials and tribulations, but he was there all the time, whether be it my very painful abortion at six months of pregnancy, and the depression following it or the more tension-filled pregnancy delivery of my first child and many other problems.
When my older son was three, we were transferred to Omkareshwar (in Madhya Pradesh) where the famous Omkareshwar Jyotirling is located.

sri-mahakaleshwar-temple_1418295733

After a couple of months, we went to visit  Shree Mahakaleshwar Jyotirling in Ujjain. I had just a brief darshan of Lord Shiva. Till then I didn’t  know much about Lord Shiva. But after his darshan in Ujjain, an intense longing to know more developed. On the internet, I read the real meaning of the Mrityunjaya mantra and then I just chanted and chanted it unknowingly all the time. I experienced a deep peace while chanting. I was with the mantra all the time I was doing my household chores. After some days  I had the opportunity to listen to the audio of Shiva Mahapuran by Shri Chaganti Koteswara Rao. He very lovingly explained how Shiva melts for the bhakti of his devotees and I melted into Shiva Bhakti completely after listening to all 108 episodes. Tears of joy were drenching me fully. All these divine moments I experienced, could only share everything with my parents and my brother, who were very happy for me. My second son was born with Lord Shiva’s blessings after a year and we named my little one Sri Omkaar.

At this time I also got connected to Shri Paada Shri Vallabha, the first avatar of Lord Dattatreya. I read about him in the Guru Charitra many years ago, but the real connection started when I read his biography, Sri Paada Vallabha Charitaamrutam.
The book revealed so many things and I got to know later, that he arrived to hold my hand to lead me to my beloved Master. (This I understood  after I got connected to  MOHANJI).

My Connection with Sri Mohanji

Babaji01_HimalayasWe moved to Faridabad (near Delhi) after spending four years in Omkareshwar. And after a mere six months, I got to know about my beloved master Shri Mohanji. I always read the abridged version of Shri Paada Vallabha Charitamrutam online before going to bed. It had been a practice for the past two years. While I was reading in October 2015, the mention of Shri Mahaavtar Babaji caught my eye. I had read about Babaji in the  book Autobiography  of a Yogi” and was always fascinated by his mystic divine persona. But this time I wanted to know more about  him. I searched online and I came across Mohanji’s blog on Mahaavtar Babaji titled ‘Babaji Beyond Definitions’. After a couple of days, I dreamt (it was an astral experience, as later explained by Mohanji) that I was undergoing a self -realisation experience: I could see everything  in me, the whole universe. I knew Babaji was there, but couldn’t see him in his physical form. After the dream ended, I was wide awake and was overwhelmed and filled with gratitude and bliss for the whole experience. I prayed to Babaji that he comes to me in his physical  form and guides me through  my life. He was listening. He sent Mohanji.

P1I was just totally drawn towards  Mohanji after this. I continually read his blogs and the devotees’ experiences. And was filled with so much joy that at last, I found my Sadguru in a physical form. I never expected that so much grace will be bestowed upon me. Again, I shared all these things only to my brother and parents as they could understand what I was experiencing. Love and devotion for Mohanji were increasing day by day.

I wanted to meet him at least once in my lifetime. I got to know from an experience of a devotee from the blog, that he is on Facebook and I messaged him. He responded after a few days and blessed me. That was a boon to me. I couldn’t believe it was all happening. In December it was my birthday and the best birthday I ever had. I got his divine blessings when I informed him on Messenger. I was just connected to him almost the whole time. I could see his image even after I closed my eyes. When I watched one of his videos for the first time, tears flowed incessantly. I felt like I met a lost parent after many lifetimes. Slowly his grace was showing in my day-to-day life too. I felt very happy and blissful. I was so eager to meet him in person. In February 2016, I tried to meet him but wasn’t able to attend the Satsang. My heart bled that day. That night he (his energy in the form of vibrations in my body) consoled me and I had my first astral Shaktipath from him. I was so blessed that when I couldn’t reach him, he himself came to me. From then onwards his energy started speaking to me occasionally. He was taking care of me like a mother does with a small baby. My gratitude towards him took the form of a verse and I  wrote my first poem for his birthday. My initial experiences with him and the poem are posted on the experience blog ‘Mohansuniverse’  named ‘Guru Saakshaat Parabrahma’ in Feb 2016.

By his grace, my connection grew deeper and I started writing poems in Hindi and in Telugu continuously and shared them with him. To my surprise, he liked them and asked me to share them Facebook. First  I was reluctant but agreed to do so as Baba himself asked me to. A couple of months later Baba shared a video on Facebook made by a devotee. I was just fascinated by this new mode of expressing love for him. I thought  I should try it once. And I made a video that was much appreciated and can be seen on  https://youtu.be/ybLu4ljzpuM   Making videos looked more interesting to me than writing poems and  I was graced with many opportunities to make simple, devotional videos on Baba.

I missed another opportunity to meet him in the March of 2016 and I wondered if I could ever meet him. But through consciousness, I was getting connected to him more deeply, almost 24*7. He patiently and lovingly replied to my messages and then in August 2016, when he returned from Kailash he stopped using Facebook. It was a big blow for me because I felt I couldn’t  talk to him now. I couldn’t  share my poems and videos with him directly. I was sad and a bit depressed when his energy started speaking to me and consoled me. This was more beautiful than speaking to him via Facebook  – he was always online. After this experience, I made one more video on him which is my favorite and Baba loved it too. This can be found at https://youtu.be/lwP9X67OnsM

Soon I longed for the company of people who were connected to Baba. And though the Mohanji Whatsapp group I met Jyoti Bahl. Baba gave me what I needed. A dear friend and an accomplice in making future videos. Baba has very grand plans for everyone and they get revealed in their own time. I got also connected to Palak Mehta, another more loving soul and I soon made two videos on Mohanji’s 18 lessons and Mohanji’s quotes on animals. Baba knows that I was not a professional but he chose me to do this beautiful work. He encouraged me always even though I didn’t have the requisite acumen.

The Transformation after Baba’s Arrival

I am not an ambitious or career oriented person. (even though I am a postgraduate in Statistics and was a very bright student). I am content with my household chores and my kids, and I have been often (subtly) criticised by my family for this which led to low self-esteem. But now, Baba has given me fresh life with many ways to be involved in his work.

I do all Baba’s work after my household chores are complete and after taking care of my family. I always work at night after my little one is asleep. Baba gives me the energy to do all my day jobs and also for his work. So, in short, it’s him doing all the work through me. He has removed  Tamas from my system altogether. Now I always look forward to doing any form of service to him whenever I am free from my family chores (actually it’s a big service to myself as I enjoy a lot doing Mohanji’s  work).

I was always a loner with a few good friends who are in touch with me still. After Baba came into my life, I felt I must also have people connected to him as my friends. It took almost a year for that wish to fructify. He gave me a wonderful, supportive and loving family, the Mohanji family. I know only a few of them but I value them and their friendship a lot. Palak Mehta, Jyoti Bahl, DB ji,  Sanjay Bhaiya, Rajesh Bhaiya, Taayiji and ShubhaAmma. All of them are very supportive, loving, caring and sharing. I thank Baba from the bottom of my heart for gracing me with such friends.

I am not a happy-go-lucky person, I don’t talk much, am very sensitive, very emotional, short-tempered and have lots of other drawbacks. In spite of all this, Baba loved me unconditionally, cared for me and supported me every moment. He let me be myself. He let me enjoy myself with all these drawbacks. He made me laugh at my mistakes, enjoy fully my small accomplishments like a child. He was slowly transforming me to accept myself as I am, which I could never do my whole life. Now, I enjoy myself, am happy being alone, am happy being emotional, am happy being sensitive. In fact, he transformed all these drawbacks into intense devotion for him. I cherished being in his consciousness always. That needs a person to be silent. I longed for his presence only, for that I should be alone. And I felt his overwhelming and unconditional love every moment, for that one has to be sensitive. And my intensely emotional nature was transformed to an unfailing faith and devotion for him. By his grace, and only by his grace, I connect to him so deeply. I’ve never longed for anything or shed so many tears of gratitude and love for any other person.

He is always with me. And he makes me feel his presence always. Whether I am working in my kitchen, taking care of my kids and family, or doing his work. He even watches movies with me ( a very rare thing that I do) and enjoys them too. He enjoys the peppy dance numbers that are played on the TV or when I get to listen to them. He listens to the devotional songs with me (which I always do) and likes them a lot. I sing a lot of bhajans whenever  I am alone and I know that loves them, despite me being a very bad singer. He even accompanies me to my children’s school functions. He enjoys their performances and he likes the National Anthem a lot when it is played at the end. He accompanies me to the grocery store too and suggests a better product to buy. His presence is always felt by me by the intense and sweet vibrations usually on my head or hands and feet. Even he scolds me using this procedure. Whenever I am doing something nonsensical or something that he doesn’t  want me to do he warns me with a sharp piercing pain in my toe. My third eye is vibrating almost all the time and this also indicates his presence. Whenever I am making any videos for him or just trying to chant one of his mantras at night sometimes I fall asleep as I feel tired. The next moment he gives a sharp nudge on my elbow and wakes me up or either lifts my hand up and drops it down gently. At first, I thought I was imagining, but later I understood it was his doing. He always makes sure that I complete my work before going to sleep.

Gratitude for what I have already and for what Baba’s grace showers on me has grown tremendously. The moments when I do my daily prayers and offer food to all the five deities thrice a day are the most gratitude-filled moments of my life. My prayers are always without any rituals, except for lighting a lamp before him and an incense stick. Apart from that, I sing some of my favorite bhajans with so much bhaav, that it becomes difficult for me to come out of that bliss and continue with my other daily chores. I always  feel that I am at his lotus feet and offering my prayers before him. It doesn’t require any effort to connect with him blissfully but it requires great effort to concentrate on other mundane things of life. He let me taste the celestial nectar of  devotion. Now that I have tasted it, my whole being always craves for the moments of stillness and bliss. It’s only his grace that I am able to experience such effortless and intense devotion  towards him.

Meal times are another favorite of mine. I normally eat alone as, by the time I have finished feeding Omakar, the family has finished their meal. In the initial stages of my connection with Baba, I offered food to all five deities as suggested by him. With time I could experience Baba actually accepting my offering through the subtle sensations in my body. And when I say thank you for all that he has blessed me with, my eyes fill with tears. It still amazes me. Since I eat alone no one else has noticed it till now.

Baba always makes sure that I have ample space and time to connect with him blissfully. Being in his consciousness all the time has reduced the need to express myself, and to come out of the silence requires a lot of effort. This has made me more aloof and I have had to face some negativity from others due to this. They don’t affect me much as Baba takes care of everything. And he sometimes subtly suggests that I need not be alone to experience this connection. These days he converses with me even though people are present around me and when I am speaking to someone else. I am very grateful to Baba,  for his grace.

Baba takes care of my family too. Omkar is also very connected to Mohanji. He loves him a lot and always kisses Baba’s  pictures. Once when he was very ill I just assured him that  Sai Baba and MOHANJI will take care of him and make him healthy again. He believed it. And he said that in his sleep he met Sai Baba and Mohanji and when he woke up he was smiling with joy and the illness was gone. I was speechless with gratitude. After this incident, Omkar meets Baba occasionally in his sleep. Omkar likes the Mohanji aarti a lot and often drifts to sleep only after listening to it. I can definitely say that Omkaar is a blessed soul.

My Astral Experiences

From the first day that I connected with Baba, I have had very beautiful and amazing astral experiences. Two days after I read his blog on Mahaavtar Babaji, I got the self-realization experience as the first astral experience. After two days I experienced, that my Ajna chakra was rotating and my whole body was experiencing a kind of energy rush. At that time I didn’t know anything about Chakras.Within a week I experienced it again. And the most blissful experience after that was, I met Shri SaiBaba at Shirdi and he very lovingly sat near me and spoke to me for a long time, but I can’t remember a word of what he spoke.

As days passed, Mohanji regularly met me astrally. I could actually sense very clearly my subtle body leaving me (I felt some energy inside me being pulled from my head and I am out of this body), and traveling (sometimes flying like a bird) along with Baba to so many places. I always had a chance to see him work in many places other than this earth. As an intergalactic Master, he has so many beings to take care of who are suffering terribly because of the negative forces and many of the poor beings love him a lot. My most favorite astral experience is the one below.

Just like a sci-fi movie, I was in a some highly advanced type of metro train with Baba which could travel in thin air. The view from the train was very beautiful with colonies illuminated with colorful lights just suspended in space and we were going past enjoying the scenic panorama. Just then Baba had to attend to someone and I was alone. There came one person(looked somewhat like a human) and started chatting with me. He was a very troubled soul and was discussing with me all the negativity of their world. By what I could understand, there is conceit, deceit, all the negativities (which we experience) in other worlds too. The experience ended there. Or, I could remember only that much. I always wonder why he takes me (who doesn’t  even know how to efficiently handle my own life) to places, where I do also get involved in the circumstances and try to help. And many of them are very tense situations like the one, where a group of people was being chased by extremely dangerous negative forces and Baba was protecting them. While I couldn’t witness the real fight as Baba sent me back home saying, bedtime enough of adventures. While I was about to come into my body, a very beautiful divine face (he looked almost like Lord Shiva) with a white light in the background, was looking at me with so much love and concern. I can still remember his expression very clearly even though it’s almost two years since I had this experience.

My most recent experience was one where Baba was traveling in a train with so many people. I was waiting for him at the station. I don’t know how, but I sensed that an accident was about to occur to the train in which Baba was traveling. I panicked and somehow changed the direction of the track and the train was safe. After seeing Baba alighting from the train, I rushed to him and fell at his feet with an overwhelming feeling of relief and joy at him being safe. He smiled at me and said, “So everything was going on LIVE to you”. That’s where it ended. My koti koti pranaams at his Lotus feet.

Meeting Mohanji

Almost all of my above experiences were graced upon me before I met Baba in person. I was just anxiously waiting to meet my GOD in human form. It took almost more than a year of waiting and an intense tapas for this to happen. As far as my limited understanding goes, he tested my patience and the depth of my devotion. In December 2016, I was planning to go to meet my parents after a gap of almost 18 months. But I had to meet Baba too. I knew he comes and stays in Delhi for some days. When I enquired, DB ji told me that Baba may come to Delhi. I didn’t want to miss this chance of meeting Baba. He encouraged me to go to my parents when I asked for his advice through consciousness. But I decided to wait for him and I canceled going home.

Baba melts as easily just as Bholenath. On Jan23rd 2017, I got to meet him at Taayiji s house. One week before this he graced my parents with a wonderful darshan at Bangalore. My parents even had lunch with him sitting on the same table with him, which according to me is a blessing beyond my imagination.

My first meeting with him was very wonderful. I had a chance to show him the Ashtottari video done by me. He never forgets our wishes and fulfills them all, however petty they might be.

After this meeting,  I met him thrice and when I went to meet my parents I also had an opportunity to meet another great master Avadhoota Naadanandaji in Kurnool which was also a dream come true.

Sadguru is Lord of Lords

“If you think of God or Guru, it’s only by his grace.”

It’s only because of the grace of all the masters in my life that I could understand the fact the Sadguru is more than  God. And my endless gratitude to the creator that, I could experience this beautiful truth through Mohanji who is for me the Lord of lords.
All the blissful experiences  I ve had  of Baba was just  because of a sincere connection to his consciousness. Connection to his consciousness gives you everything. I never meditated the divine meditations (PoP, 360degrees, Bliss of Silence, etc)  he had given to this world (Till now I feel I can’t sit in meditation for long). I never even chanted his mantra a whole 108 times, I never did any other Sadhana. By his divine grace I just connected to him just as a baby always longs for it’s mother. I did nothing else. In fact I can’t  do any other Sadhana. There might be a lot of past life connection with him, otherwise I couldn’t feel such a beautiful feeling of devotion towards him. Whatever it may be, just connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness gives everything. I experienced  it by his grace. The whole point of writing down these experiences was to relive them myself (and I did it, and was in tears with gratitude towards Baba) and also to let Others know, how  unconditionally he gives to everyone, and how he showers grace silently on every being (however insignificant it might be) he is connected to. There might be so many other things  he must be doing  to me which are beyond my comprehension such as clearing the mountains and mountains of my past lives Karma. And some which had to be gone through, he might be taking on himself silently and there by suffering so much physically. Not even Gods go through so much pain to elevate their devotees. It’s just a Sadguru’s unconditional love. Every second of their life is lived for others, ignoring all the sufferings in the noble path.

I would like to end this beautiful journey with a couple of stanzas from the Guru Sotram which I love to recite daily. And the translation is as per my understanding.

Na Guro radhikam tatwam,
(There  is no other great philosophy , other than getting to know about your Guru)
Na Guro radhikam tapaha
(There is no other penance higher than connecting to your Guru)
Tattwa gnanaam Param naasti
(There is no other knowledge which  is higher than the Guru)
Tasmayi Sree Gurave Namaha..
(I bow to thee,  my Master)

Guru raadi anaadishcha,
(Guru in the  form of guruprinciple has been there since time immemorial)
Guru Parama daivatam,
(Guru is Lord of Lords)
Guro  para  taram naasti,
(There is no other one as noble as a Guru)
Tasmyi  Sree Gurave  Namaha.
(I bow to thee… My Gurudev)

Everything  at your lotus feet… My Gurudev…
Endless love and Gratitude…
Thank you for everything.
🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji!

I am always with you

Mitesh with Mohanji in SA

By Mitesh Khatiwala

Most people who have been around Mohanji have always heard him say, “Don’t worry. I am always with you.” While comforting, most people casually interpret it as a manner of speaking. However, some of us who have had the good fortune and grace to be around Him for a while know that He means it when He says it to anyone. Recently I had the benefit of experiencing the efficacy of that statement through a couple of events in this year and last. The first was the amazing Badrinath with Mohanji pilgrimage in 2016 – part pilgrimage, part adventure, part edge seat view to nature’s fury, part … (you get the picture) and the other was an amazing occurrence during casual interactions with a colleague back home in South Africa. Without further ado, here are the events.

Badrinath with Mohanji 2016 – August 2016

Mohanji had planned the Badrinath trip in 2016 before the Kailash pilgrimage to help pilgrims acclimatize better before the grueling Inner Kora. Other people apart from the Kailash participants were also welcome to join. The timing for the Badrinath trip couldn’t have been worse since there were cloudbursts leading to landslides and floods in the area. The weather was completely unpredictable which sent the logistics haywire. The trip was full of adventure and we had to use a couple of extra days, than planned earlier, for travel due to the inclement weather. Hence, we were left with only one day to do the places surrounding Badrinath. There are primarily two clusters of important places in Badrinath – one is Charan Paduka, Neelkanth Parbat, etc up in the mountains and the other cluster (Vyas Gufa, Ganesh Gufa, etc) is on the route to Mana village (Mana is the last Indian village on the China/Tibet border). Since both are at opposite sides of Badrinath, doing both in one day is not feasible. Hence, it was decided that half the group would do Mana and the other half would do Charan Paduka. Mohanji went with the group that went to Charan Paduka. Since the climb is steep, the group that headed to Charan Paduka had to ensure that people joining the group had to be relatively fit to undertake the climb.

I couldn’t join the group to Charan Paduka as I had kept the heater on in my room the entire night and due to that was feeling very nauseous. I somehow went to the reception area of the hotel and saw Mamu and Kedar. From them, I got to know that Devi Maa is also at the hotel. I went to a roadside shop and got 2 packets of biscuits and ate them. After about 45 mins or so, I was feeling better. Mamu informed about the visit to Mana village and around to visit Vyas Gufa, Ganesh gufa, etc. Mamu arranged for a taxi to take us to Mana village. It was me, Mamu, Devi Maa, Vigneshwaran and Kedar. The trip was very leisurely. We were chitchatting all along and posing for pictures wherever we got a chance. I was busy taking pictures of the group all along the way. When we were heading towards Vyas Gufa after visiting Ganesh Gufa, we took a halt to admire the scenic beauty and were clicking pictures of the same. I noticed that the sky was amazed by its beauty. I decided to take a picture of it and took a few shots. I didn’t check my pictures closely at that time. We continued with our visit, visited all the gufas and surrounding places and then returned back.

After sometime, I was looking at the pictures taken earlier and noticed a peculiar thing in one of the pictures taken en route to Ganesh Gufa. The cloud shapes in the sky showed a clear face of Mohanji. His face high up in the clouds was as prominent as we see in a photo. When I showed it Mohanji when He returned to the hotel, He said that one of the devotees was thinking of Him very intensely and hence He came there in the form of clouds. I later showed the picture to Mamuji (Narinder Rohmetra). He said that he was worried about Mohanji considering the steep climb to Charan Paduka and was thinking of Mohanji around the same time. Our happiness knew no bounds. As always Mohanji tells us, “I am always with you wherever you go.”

Total solar eclipse – August 21st 2017

At work, most of the people I interact with on a daily basis know that I follow Mohanji. A few of them talk to me to try and understand a bit more about Him. One of my colleagues was interested to know more about Mohanji. Even though she was from a Christian background, she had always been seeking and exploring alternative spiritual philosophies especially Buddhism. She has been going through the videos on Mohanji’s YouTube Channel as well as the Mohanji.org website regularly. The topics of our discussion sometimes were around Mohanji.

Recently there was a total solar eclipse on August 21st which was visible mostly in the USA and surrounding regions. A few days before the solar eclipse, she had a few questions regarding the eclipse and I directed her to different blogs and YouTube videos of Mohanji. During the eclipse, she messaged me a live picture of the eclipse that was sent by her friend from the USA. I took a casual look at the picture but did not notice anything in particular. Our conversations on the eclipse and about Mohanji continued for some time. During this time, she happened to use that pic as her profile pic on Whatsapp. When I happened to take a closer look, I noticed Mohanji‘s face appearing next to the Sun. That was when I looked again at the picture she has sent me earlier and noticed that I could clearly see Mohanji‘s face. I wondered how I missed this seemingly obvious observation earlier.

I immediately wrote to her that if she knew that Mohanji is always with you. She was curious to know why I said that. Using an imaging application, I circled Mohanji‘s face on the picture she had sent me earlier and sent the updated picture back to her. I again told her, “See! Mohanji is always with you!” Now when she saw the picture again, she was really amazed and bewildered. Since then, her faith in Mohanji has increased manifold and so has my belief in Mohanji’s oft-quoted statement, “I am always with you”
