Dr. Deepali: At the outset, let me sincerely thank Rajeshwari for almost single-handedly organizing the Thane-Mumbai BTW event on 21-22 Oct 2010. This Mumbai trip was not only relevant in terms of the two meditations that were conducted, but it was also a BTW family’s multinational gathering which happened for the first time at this scale…. Marina came from Germany, Babu flew from Bangkok, his parents and uncle-aunty came from Chennai, Kim Anh from Vietnam, Mohanji, Sudeep, myself and Moushami from Muscat, Mohanish from Pune, and Rajeshwari was there to welcome all of us!
Rajeshwari: Mohanji’s recent visit to Mumbai was one of the biggest blessings of my life.
On one side it was a moment I was so looking forward to, while on the other, I realized I had very few moments to bask in the bliss of his presence as there was so much to be done/coordinated and time was really too less, for it was not just Mohanji but my large BTW family which was coming along and most of them were coming to Thane for the first time. This made it even more important for me to ensure that everybody felt at home and were well looked after.
That day early morning, exactly when Mahavatar Babaji’s Arati was playing, Mohanji walked into my home. Tears of happiness welled up as I hugged him, just like a child who has been waiting for a long time to meet her beloved father. It was as if I had arrived Home…..
The meditations were slated for 21st evening in Thane, and 22nd evening in Parel area of Mumbai.
As Mohanji always says, magic of BTW is not in the words of the meditation but in the Grace of the Masters who shower their blessings on us and take us at least one level up during every meditation – and hence, each mediation is unique. That is indeed what we have witnessed this time as well!!
Meditation in Thane on Oct 21st
Dr. Deepali: Our meditation venue, Hiranandani school hall, was almost full and meditation went very well. At the end, when we started Shirdi Sai Baba’s Arati, I clearly saw deep blue-purple light coming out from Mohanji’s back and surrounding and embracing the full hall. It was certainly the presence of the Masters and Mohanji’s grace. This was the first time I saw this energy /light with my own eyes. I felt deep gratitude towards Mohanji for giving this experience of direct presence of Masters, through him, to all of us.
Many of attendees were very receptive to the energy during Shaktipat. But few had very active analytical mind which was resisting the energy flow. Their being was thirsty for the energy experience, but body was not ready as mind was preventing it. Mohanji has infinite store of energy. But if we do not bring empty pots, how can we receive/collect the divine energy? Human mind is skeptical since ages, but it is time to change and accept the grace.
I would like to mention an observation. In spite of sincere request by Rajeshwari, many mobile phones were on and kept on vibratory mode. The ringing/vibration of mobile phones was disturbing the CD player sound and the meditators. We found that it was disturbing Mohanji too, who was in a highly expanded state. During deep silence, as we dive into subtler and subtler layers of existence, this disturbance could give huge jerk to the meditators and may even harm the person! We are experiencing the grace, can we not be in total silence and simply connect with our souls? Why should we allow external factors to disturb our inner peace?
One young man was driving his motor bike on the road next to the meditation venue. Suddenly he received a telepathic message from Shirdi Sai Baba: “If you want to see me, come inside. I’m here!” Without second a thought, he pulled the bike into the compound, parked it, and walked into the hall. He entered almost by the end of the meditation. He clearly felt and saw Sai Baba instead of Mohanji. As a reconfirmation, after a few minutes, he heard Shirdi Sai Baba’s Arati which was played after the meditation – he could no longer control the tears… He came to Mohanji, touched his feet, and conveyed this whole miracle. Interestingly enough, he had never heard of Mohanji before nor did he know that this meditation will be happening at Hiranandani school.
Sumeet was another person who experienced Sai Baba that evening. When he found out about Mohanji’s arrival to Mumbai, he could not resist himself and came all the way from Jammu to meet Mohanji and attend this meditation, during which he experienced Sai Baba embracing him and was deeply touched.
Two friends had come from Jogeshwari to attend this meditation. They just said, “We experienced what we were missing till now… it was only love and grace, totally unconditional!”
These were only some of the many experiences.
Meditation on Oct 22nd – in ITC Grand Central, Parel, Mumbai
Rajeshwari: As we arrived to the venue and were getting ready, one of the participants – Hima (this name has been given to him by Mahavatar Babaji to whom he is greatly devoted) arrived with a beautiful Babaji moorti (idol), his own work of art and devotion, which he was guided by Babaji to gift to Mohanji. This was indeed most unexpected. And there I was, holding it in my hands and clearly feeling that this was not just a statue, but the grace of BABAJI that arrived.
I unwrapped the cover and had quivers all through, as I witnessed him radiating his unmistakable glow and infinite grace on all of us.
As we sat for the meditation, probably few minutes after being given Shaktipat, I felt the energies of Bade Baba, Shirdi Baba and Babaji merging in and out of me and enveloping me with warmth and grace. This experience remains unforgettable – never before had I been able to sense the grace of Masters so clearly…
In fact, after the meditation, Hima said: “When you gave me Shaktipat, I saw a golden Shivalinga in my third eye”.
Hearing the experiences of people always reinforces the huge responsibility and blessing that those of us who got initiated into Shaktipat have been endowed with by Mohanji. My humble gratitude to Mohanji and all my BTW family for giving me this opportunity to add a selfless chapter to my life. May the Grace always shine upon us!
Marina: On both evenings, before we started giving Shaktipat, Mohanji blessed us, Shaktipat initiates, first. So also before the second session at the ITC, I was called to sit in front of him, and the Shaktipat I got through Mohanji that evening was just out of this world! The “I” or “me” completely dissolved! I don’t know how to describe it any better, but I became Mohanji. As bold as it might sound, I felt his essence moved into my body and being. He completely melted into my cells.
I had to cry, my heart was racing, but was immediately embraced by the divine and calmed down. I felt so extended, as if opened to the whole universe and, at the same time, I could have embraced the whole universe. Total peace, serenity and love enveloped me. In this state I started giving Shaktipat to the meditators. I was experiencing total timelessness and stillness, yet also the strong connection to Mohanji, the powerful energy waves and crystal clear awareness, while moving from one person to another. Mind-blowing and delicious! And I also sensed which guests had a constitution that was more receptive, and which ones did not…”
Deepali: Mohanji was in great expanded state. All of us were feeling his expansion way before the meditation started. Since afternoon he was requesting all of us to be on time. He said: “Masters always come on time. How can we start late! ( We were little late to start the meditation at Hiranandani). Meditation and grace do not happen at your convenience, make yourself available to receive.”
We all experienced his deep and intense energy at ITC. After meditation, Sanjivani, a film Producer, who had also come the following day – said: “I never experienced such a deep silence before. During Shaktipat, I felt that energy is charging every cell of my body, I was on a different plane. In fact, as soon as Mohanji entered inside the hall I could feel his energy. Throughout the meditation I felt as if I was in the sky and I saw Chakra and Lord Krishna approaching me. Also I could feel there was only light around me and nothing else. I was completely surrounded by light all over me.I could see Shirdi Sai Baba throughout the meditation, I saw Darbar from Shirdi and Saibaba smiling at me. I received four Shaktipats that day and each one of them were so powerful that even until next day morning the top of my head was feeling heavy. After the meditation in Grand Central, when I opened my eyes, I was throughout seeing Saibaba in Mohanji and the energy was so powerful that I couldnt keep my eyes open. I could only see light all around me. I was floating and my head was heavy even after 1 hr of meditation…Thank you Mohanji and Biba again and again for changing my life, for making me a better individual. ”
Sumeet spontaneously shared- “Mohanji, I have no words to express my joy and the experience of your grace. I do not want anything, just let me know what can I do for you, how can I serve you?” He was in tears. Majority of us visit Masters and God to ask for something. The way Sumeet shared his genuine gratitude as he spoke on the microphone, it touched everyone present and many others had tears in their eyes too. He said: “It is a divine grace that I reached here from Jammu.”
Moreover, Sumeet had a surprise awaiting him – he wanted to meet his friend Abhishek from Delhi who introduced him to Mohanji and his web site – but never expected that he would meet Abhishek in Mumbai!
One other man said that he was fully guided by Babaji to reach here for this meditation. He also did not hear about Mohanji until that morning. How beautiful! Later we realized that, many were automatically guided to attend this meditation. The experiences and miracles that we share with our friends do initiate someone to get connected with the Masters. All is the leela of the Masters. Those who attend meditation are all sent by Masters.
Mohanji always mentioned that –Masters happen, at the right time, to those who deserve their blessing.
After the meditation, I., Y. and his friends said- “We felt welcomed! Mohanji talked about unconditional love and he actually gave it! We felt we are meeting our family!” Wow…. I felt this was the most beautiful expression and understanding of Mohanji’s energy. Unmistakably, all were touched by Mohanji’s presence, energy and grace. So many asked—’When will Mohanji come here again!?’
Marina shares the experience of post-meditation dinner with Mohanji
I was high on energy, floating in lightness as well as moving full steam. In front of me the plate with food. Delicious raw vegetables. While popping a piece into my mouth I have this flash of puzzlement.
What am I doing? Why am I feeding this body? This mass of energy. What’s the point in eating, putting food into this body? There is no form. There is no body! There is no direction. There is just infinite space. I have the impression that food could easily drop to the floor if I place it in my mouth.
Something is here, but it seems just some kind of cloud, maybe a conglomerate of denser energy where the “I” thinks it is located. Why eating? Why talking? And still, something in this cloud is breathing, looking, laughing, talking… What is it that is existing? Just presence and silence! Presence that is laughing, looking, loving.
Dr. Deepali: Many who attended the meditation in ITC gave donation for Ammucare. But what really touched me was the way they gave donation – they gave whatever came to their hands from their pocket.
BTW group expresses deep gratitude to ITC Group for offering their hall for this event; sincere thanks to the General Manager Mr. Kuldeep, all those who manned audio/PA system, and the catering personnel in ITC. Moreover, sincere appreciation to Hiranandani School for making their hall available for this event.
And finally, BTW family offers special gratitude to all those who contributed for the upcoming Ammucare Blanket Distribution charity events in the slums of Delhi, scheduled for Nov 9th and 14th , 2010 – a wonderful opportunity to experience the Grace….
