A small group of young adults who came to “get blessings” from Mohanji were quickly drawn to him.

They thought he was the coolest “guruji” and wanted to take him on a trek.  How cool is that?

Mohanji joined a small group of young adults, ranging in age from 15-20yrs, at Great Falls Park in Maryland. He enjoyed being in Nature, walking through the trails, watching the rapids and observing the flora and fauna.

 The kids were eager to show him around and were full of giggles and chatter and questions about spirituality.

They were free and pure, and their questions were straight from the heart, not censored by the mind.  We don’t know who had more fun, Mohanji or the kids!!!!? Only HE can tell 🙂

We love Mohanji

After Mohanji had worked out our minds and intellect through satsangs he decided our bodies needed a workout.

Good morning!!!!

Yoga sessions started at 6:30AM.  The presence of the Guru definitely drove the tamas right out of our bodies.

Everyone was present on time and enjoyed the simple yet challenging yoga postures.  We all watched in awe as Priya, our young & gorgeous yoga guide twisted like a pretzel, flipping back and rocking forward effortlessly. 

Oh, to be young and flexible

May be one day…..a long time in the distant future….we will get there, but for now we were happy to just have fun in a group and attempted the  moves.

We were expecting anywhere between 3-10 participants and we were pleasantly surprised to see over 25 participants. Mohanji guided them through a breathing exercise called yogic breathing. Once they were rejuvenated, Mohanji spoke to them about life transitions.

The elders were very open and receptive. One of the ladies could actually see Mohanji’s aura.

By the end of the talk they all wanted him to come back every week and speak to them. They were shocked that he does not live in the US and very innocently asked if we could transport him or keep him back here.

Unconditional Love

When eye cards were distributed and one lady very innocently wanted to know what to do if she fell in love with him by looking into his eyes Ha! Ha !

The whole space was reverberating with love and joy. Mohanji brought great joy to this group of seniors, making them forget their ailments and aches and pains at least for the short period of time he was there.

Grace!!!!

Grace!!!!

I could see hope in their eyes.

OH!! JOY!!!!!

OH!! JOY!!!!!

Mohanji was like a rock star among the seniors, who were clamoring to speak to him and get shaktipat. We had to whisk him away, like a celebrity so the seniors can go ahead and eat their lunch.

Job done!!!

Mohanji was warmly welcomed by Dr. Satish Mishra and Dr. Daniel Chelliah and introduced to several dignitaries including the Indian Ambassador to the US. Many were interested in the spiritual and service projects and have sought to meet Mohanji to discuss further on how we could work together to bring message of peace and unconditional love to the people especially the youth in the United States.

The day was here when the first big meditation was happening in VA, at Stacywood community center. As we were about to finish the preparation for the meditation, people started to come and were being seated. Fifteen minutes before the start we had about sixty people all from different cultures and backgrounds.

"I am always with you." Mohanji always says, i.e. His consciousness permeates everything and is everywhere. Just keep connected.

It was so beautiful to see how a Master brings the variety of vast world into a small room 🙂 By the end of the meditation when people opened their eyes Mohanji was among them sitting in front.

Mohanji did a Satsang, a lot of devotees got their questions answered and a lot got their messages through others’ answers. After the Satsang, Mohanji delivered Shaktipat to all the devotees who came. It was a beautiful sight to see people so connected even those who came for the first time.

People from various backgrounds received the blessing of shaktipat from Mohanji
