Mohanji in Wayanad : Fruits of a long wait!
We met Mohanji at the Bangalore airport to end one and a half years wait to bring Him to the southern part of India especially to God’s own country, Kerala. We were racing to make it on time as the traffic delayed us by an hour , and it turned out that we were at the arrival gates the very moment he came out of the airport. Vineeta and Preeti were there before us. Vinita greeted us with a wonderful lunch at their guest house. We were then ready for a six hour long drive to Wayanad, one of the spectacular northern regions of Kerala. It was late night when we reached Meenangadi, where MohanJi stayed for the rest of the trip. We organized the first ever ‘Power Of Purity Meditation’ in Kerala followed by a satsang and Shaktipath.
When the guided POP meditation was over, the participants opened their eyes with a beautiful smile and each face radiated the touch of pure divinity. Shaktipath was a deeply satisfying blessing for all. They were all curious to know what Mohanji had planned for the next few days. Very soon, we realized that He plans nothing. Everything is spontaneous. “Spontaneity is true spirituality” – Mohanji
More love was showered on us the next day when Mohanji was invited to the houses of His devotees.
We got the opportunity to visit some beautiful pilgrim spots in and around Wayanad with Mohanji. A place worth mentioning was Thirunelli temple , which is known as the Kashi of the South . Mohanji said that its one of the powerful temples in Kerala and we truly felt that. There in the lap of nature, the energy in and around the temple was tremendous.
Here is a picture of MohanJi prostating at the ‘feet of Lord Vishnu’ surrounded by Lotuses.
Then we moved on to Ayurveda Yoga Villa , which was a serene river side ayurveda resort , where we decided to stay overnight absolutely falling in love with the place. In a few hours we understood that the stay was predetermined as everything was falling in place, and in just a few minutes a satsang for the people at the resort was organized leading to a Homa in the morning and a POP session a while after. It was worth mentioning that the management and staff were exceptionally helpful and the requirements were provided . Mohanji expressed his gratitude and willingness to have a retreat every year in this beautiful resort!
The homa we performed in the morning cleansed the Karma of people who have offered it onto the fire along with a coconut. The fire clearly showed the presence of entities during the homa.
We took the monsoon showers with us as we moved on to the next destination which is an island temple called Kottiyur. This is supposed to be where Daksha performed his Yaga or fire ceremony, where his daughter Sati, the wife of Shiva burned herself in the fire. Shiva became furious. Shiva’s army came and destroyed the whole yagna.
On 7th, a program was organised at M.S.Swaminathan Research Foundation, a Community Agrobiodiversity Centre , which included a farm tour , and an interactive session with the scientists and staff. They also honored us with a delicious lunch.
As our journey grew more interesting we were all started feeling the lightness & inner peace of the ‘Mohanji consciousness’ which is pure consciousness itself. Each one realised in their own way that Master’s life itself is His teaching and how lucky we were to spend this time with Mohanji. On the 5th, we took our time to visit an ardent animal lover , who is taking care of an indigenous breed of cow, known as Kasargode Dwarf. He is on a dedicated mission to save and propagate the breed. Mohanji intends to bring the indigenous Indian breed of cows and bulls into His ashram at Wai!
In the evening we had a special program along with Dr.Raman (a retired professor, and consulting dermatologist, and a motivating spiritual master or according to Mohanji – a ‘true yogi.’) who introduced MohanJi to the seekers from all walks of spirituality. Satsang was followed by the much awaited book release , Mohanji’s first ever book in his native language – Malayalam.
The book is a translation of Mohanji’s ‘In Search Of The Precious’ translated by Dr.P.K.Namboothiri. Dr.Raman released and handed over the first copy to Dr.Padmanabhan. M.D. Ayurveda, retired DMO.
Mohanji expressed his sincere gratitude to the whole team who made this possible. Gratitude is extended to Prof. Sadasivan, Dr.Padmanabhan, Dr.Raman, Anand Padmanabhan, Madhusudanan Nair, Beena Sadasivan, Uma Madhu, Ajitha Padmanabhan, Ajay Krishna, Santhosh, Ajay, Sabu Adithyan, Dr.Sanjeev , Dr.Krishnadas and many more. Mohanji loved the place and the people. He looked forward to return every year to this enchanting place.
With a deep senses of satisfaction, of a job well done, we set a mile stone in the spiritual life of many.
Our Journey now takes us to the north…. We shall talk about it in the next blog.
