Mohanji’s Birthday Celebrations Worldwide

Mohanji

Mohanji’s birthday message to all: A melting Heart

My Dear Embodiments of Pure Love

 What is worth living for? What is real wealth? What is success? All of us would have had these thoughts at some point in our life.

Modern Education teaches us that material success is real success. It tells us that bank balance means security. And, assets means power. Conquests of materials and positions mean success in the world of duality, our waking state world. This is total and complete delusion. These never stay. These never pay. These never last. We came empty handed and naked. We shall leave empty handed and totally naked. But, when will mankind realize this simple truth? Or will they realize it at all?

A  few moments of joy, a few moments of sharing, a few moments of bliss and love is all that we could earn in this life time. Whatever we collect from here are impressions of false pleasures. All things false collapse sooner or later. False becomes colorless in no time like imitation gold. Pure gold always survives time and keeps shining against all odds. We see many scenes as we walk this journey called life. People appear and disappear like butterflies. Everything is momentary and temporary. Nothing stays forever except our age old companion, our SOUL that walks with us every step like our ignored shadow, silent, witnessing and yet inevitable.

I always considered myself as a VVIP in this ocean of existence. Very Very Insignificant Person. The ocean of this layer of existence itself is so vast from the mind of a human being. It’s 7.3 billion people just on earth and still counting, plus numerous other beings visible and invisible. Among all these myriad expressions of life, what is one body with the name of Mohanji worth? How does this form and presence matter to this world? I live with this mindset which helps me stay totally grounded. All are equal and all are significant one way or the other. We should love all and serve all as ourselves. Nothing selfish is worth it. 

Likewise, the birth and death of this form has no further significance than the birth and death of numerous forms each moment. As we speak, many are leaving and many are coming into this realm of duality. Those who are coming are coming here to feel the same things which we all have felt through our lifetimes – agonies and ecstasies of numerous patterns. Everybody born and to be born have experienced these waves of time and lived their life, collecting some pebbles of experiences, memories, and some desires. This is the only earning of everyone born in this world of duality. In short, the subtle seeds of the pending desires is all that we earn and carry when we leave. What else can we take home? What else can we carry with us?

With a melting heart, I write these words. I LOVE YOU. Each and every one of you out there. Thank you for taking time and wishing me, being in my company, loving me so much and praying for me. Above all, serving the helpless in my name. How can I even begin to express my gratitude? I am sure you see my totally melted heart. It is you that made this life worth living. It is nothing but your sincere love that drives this machine called Mohanji. It is your love that urges me and inspires me to do more and more and more. It is all you. I am you. You are my wealth, my health, my expression and compassion. You are myself. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to each and every one of you who took time to wish me personally and write those beautiful words which urge the chronic introvert in me to move on with this incarnation further and further. I thank you again for waking me up to this life and walking with me, cherishing my existence, celebrating my birthday as if it is your birthday, which is true as when we met, we took a new birth. We became a new person, a personality. This is what each meaningful encounter does for us. We are reborn each time we connect and grow together. Hence, it is our birthday. Our DAY. The DAY to celebrate the core of ourselves; we as embodiment of compassion, embodiment of kindness, embodiment of supreme consciousness (Parabrahma) and Embodiment of Liberation. We are the walking and talking truth that we have always been searching around us. This moment is a moment to search within. A moment to recognize, feel, understand and connect with the truth that this birthday represents. The re-birth, the re-enactment, the supreme truth beyond all illusions. The real YOU. Hence, we celebrate our birthday and not just my birthday.

Thank you again, to each and every one out there who wished me, connected to me, did selfless services of multiple flavours which touched the lives of many people of different species and to all those who wished me through blogs, Facebook, WhatsApp and every other means. I cannot even begin to name all of you, except locations. When I say locations it is all encompassing – as in Mohanji at those locations or you in me. I am deliberately avoiding names here to avoid confusions and disappointments. Name is part of ego. We remain beyond the realms of ego, I hope.

Mohanji quote - There are some things in life

My special thanks and gratitude to our ambassadors and team leaders who envisioned and encouraged such an overwhelming celebration across the globe. I would also like to extend my sincere thanks to the new (silent) global management team who without fail guides the team managers so efficiently and promptly. Thanks to the new Social team who are proving their efficiency so effortlessly and happy to see them grow. Thanks to the new Kriya team too. In general, I am happy to see the flow, the sincere enthusiasm, lack of ownership or ego, lack of inertia and self-inspiration at works which can be easily read as unfailing conviction. I was told that our posters are being shared by many through Facebook and elsewhere. The credit goes to the social, admin and creative teams who are giving birth to such enchanting posters based on my messages.  The credit for so many likes and shares goes to you. You are truly helping to spread the message. Thank you. And superb pictures, guys… Special thanks to the inimitable Monja, Madhu, Palak, Biljana and Zoran. A good picture is worth a 1000 words. A great angle is poetry.

Thanks to the testimonials team and all those who are sharing your experiences through blogs, which is indeed inspiring and giving hope and clarity to many well beyond what we can see. I also came to know that some of you intend to write books and publish on us and our mission which is highly commendable. I wish this effort brings forth great success and fulfilment to you who are doing books. I welcome the new locations and those who are inspiring centers in new locations and also inspiring new activities in existing locations. You are doing a great job. We are looking at lot many new events such as trips to Kailash in August 2016 and Machu Pichu in March 2017 apart from the retreats in Serbia, Croatia, Bosnian Pyramids, Macedonia, USA and India. Apologies to Canada for reducing my time there which I am sure you will understand. Just to make you feel better, let me confirm to you that we also reduced my time in UK as well as South Africa. Time is tight this year.

Last but not the least, My special thanks to all those who are reading, sharing and following my messages and implementing them in real life. You are my inspiration. Your growth is my mission.

Mohanji brought in his birthday in the lap of the Divine Mother at Vaishno Devi. He climbed up the holy mountain with a small group to seek Mata Vaishno Devi’s blessings.

The Vaishno Mata shrine is in the Trikuta mountains is believed to be the abode of 33 koti (type) deities.

It is believed that at some point of time each one of these 33 koti (type) deities have worshipped Goddess Vaishno Mata, and left their symbolic marks inside. It is also believed that during the pooja and Aarti, these Gods and Goddesses arrive at the Holy cave to pay their obeisance to Mata.

Mohanji cut a birthday cake that was specially delivered to him in Vaishno Devi with love.

MOHAN JI SCHOOL OF SUPPLEMENTARY EDUCATION FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEDGED,  JAMMU

Revered Shri Mohan ji’s birthday was celebrated with great fun, laughter and enthusiasm at “Mohan ji school of supplementary education for the underprivileged (MSSEU).

 

 
It was a dream come true for the children when the staff of the school came to know that Mohan ji himself shall be gracing the occasion to cut the cake and shower his blessings on everyone.

Arrival of Mohan ji
Mohan ji along with his guests from Coimbatore, Mumbai and Serbia were received by the founder of the school Mrs.Jyoti gupta, Madam Nirupma Chaudhary and others at the entrance and welcomed them with tilak and arti ceremony by the school children. The program formally started with Madam Nirupma giving the short information about the different activities taking place in the school from time to time. She also made aware about the different art and craft items made and displayed by the children to the invited guests.

Mr. Karan read the welcome address about the school and wished Mohan ji on behalf of the children while Muskan recited her small poem. Mr.Arihant Gupta sang a devotional bhajan with his guitar expressing his love for Mohan ji. Finally the group song was sung by the group of children. The birthday cake was cut by Mohan ji with the excited children. It was distributed among everyone present there. Later the food was also served to the children.
Mohan ji school of supplementary education for the underprivileged (MSSEU) extends its heartfelt gratitude and love to Revered Shri Mohan ji for inspiring and putting a seed in my mind to create this small temple of learning which used to be a small group of four to five children who would get together in the evening and I would use to teach them to make small crafts items like collage making, needle work on fabric and pottery etc. with my personal background as a law graduate with diploma in Textile designing and a small course in pottery.

The school was finally opened and named in the year 2011/12 on a small piece of land with the divine blessings of Mohan ji where the children who are down trodden and cannot afford to educate themselves are always welcome. Now the strength of the children has grown up to sixty and I feel so proud to say that the school has produced a girl student named Sobha who was able to fulfill her studies up to B.ed college and remain a part of the faculty here for a long time. I am thankful to all the teachers who have been a part of it from time to time especially Madam Nirupma who always takes lots of efforts in educating, shaping and guiding the children with great energy. The school is also thankful to its two new faculty members, Deepak and Ram pal for putting their young thoughts and ideas into the children’s minds.

JYOTI GUPTA
(Founder MSSEU)

Ka Aangan in Jammu

He spent the evening with children in Jammu. He first visited Mohanji ki aangan, a school fit underprivileged children, where the children performed skits and songs for him, and handed him a number of creative birthday cards. After the cake cutting ceremony, Mohanji then served food to all the children and blessed them with peace and happiness.
He then visited Mohanji School of Supplementary Education, a school to teach additional skills, including creative and vocational skills, to children. The children displayed their creative talents in poetry, singing, art work and painting.

MUMBAI

On this auspicious day of Mohanji’s birthday Mumbai did anadaan seva at Hanuman Tedki Mandir. This temple is believed to be here since the time of pandavs and it is here that Hanumanji, Maata rani and Ganeshi gave their blessings for victory to the Pandavas…the idol of Hanumanji is a Svayambhu.

It was a different experience for all. Freshly cooked hot food was served to many. It was nice to see them eat to their heart’s content. Many also took parcel.

This seva was a success due to the efforts of Manilalji, our volunteers Deepa, Ruchi and Ritu and last but not the least due to courtsey of our dear friends Preethi-Madhu, Priti-Kedar and Sharad; Rajesh and Seeta for their support.

Without the love and support of all these lovely people this seva would not have been possible.

Thank you all and heartfelt gratitude. See more at ammucare.org.

Seva was followed by Power of Purity meditation, chanting and aarti to Father and masters at Vashi and Mahim center.

We are every so grateful for his Grace upon us to allow us to follow Him in this life’s journey. As we ended the evening with Aarti, we were totally surprised with an opportunity to talk to Mohanji himself. As usual when Ganesh sent the pictures of the evening, Mohanji asked that we call. We were fortunate to convey our Birthday wishes directly and naturally the evening lit up with thousand lamps as Mohanji talked to everyone and the house was filled with laughter and joy, as wishes for Mohanji started early morning on April 23 from one end of the planet and went day long and night long and culminated as we ended our April 23 and Mohanji began April 24 in Dharmshala. How Beautiful…

Skype Satsang with Mohanji
The awesome week ended with a fantastic Skype Satsang with multi locations in USA – Virginia, Connecticut, North Carolina, Kentucky and Michigan. As Mohanji was answering the questions by some seekers, everyone present got their unasked questions answered. One of the newer members of our team, Reyes Gonzalez-Gutierrez from Spain had a question on what is prayer and how to pray to which Mohanji so beautifully explained: “The best prayer is the prayer of Gratitude. From outside you only see one form, the form is only a representation of your total constitution; the form is not you 100% as it does not include the total consciousness which is ever present. The moment you start connecting to you within, you then see the heart beat is happening evenly, beautifully, the breathing, the respiration, circulation, digestion, mental waves, connection of nerves everything is synchronized and you will see you as a full universe within you. When you connect with that universe within you, you are connecting with God who runs the universe. What is outside of you is just the reflection of what is inside you. Once you are aware of this whole point, huge gratitude will happen. That is the best prayer ……..if you clearly understand this, you will be clear about existence and there will be no ambiguity, you will love everything around you and yourself.”


Thank you, dear Mohanji, from the depths of our hearts. It has been an incredible journey and continues to be, as we live and learn by our experiences and continuous contemplation which you help us and guide us go through. Deepest gratitude and love as we await your presence in about a month.

CANADA

Vardhapan……Mohanji’s Birthday Celebration – Toronto

Mohanjis birthday in Canada 2016 a

 

The Divine Celebrations for The Divine Soul Mohanji Started on Friday 19th with an extremely intense POP session. Deep silence and a broad smile on faces spoke all. Strong energy was felt by devotees connected by the phone for meditation as well. Though they were on the other side of the phone, they felt cool breeze and felt shivers and goose bumps during this session. Mohanji’s ways are unfathomable 


On Saturday the 20th, The Sun was at His Glory, bright and Powerful. As though Mohanji was giving us a message in the subtlest manner “I AM WITH YOU”. The day started with Mohanji Invocation and Mohanji worship. This was followed by Mohanji Paad Pooja (Sandals) with saffron and Rose water.

20160220_095707_HDR

At some point one of the devotees felt as though Mohanji was physically sitting in front of him and She was actually washing Mohanji’s Lotus Feet, Silent tears of Gratitude drenched her heart within. The 108 names of Mohanji chanted were felt strongly each time Abhishekham was performed. Another devotee felt as though she had a Déjà vu. Sweet loving tears flowed down her eyes in the warmth of Mohanji’s presence within and around her. She said washing Mohanji’s feet was a yearning she had from Lord Jesus time and that Mohanji fulfilled her wish in this life.

After this Divine experience we chanted Mohanji Mantra continuously for two and half hours.

With each mantra chanted a pinch of rice grain was held against our heart chakra and then offered on Mohanji’s Lotus Feet. The rice grain filled with divine energy was later distributed amongst devotees as Prasaad. The chants grew louder and stronger, the senses within started getting dispersed. There was a time when numbness was felt in the body and mind. IT was so calming within. Altogether 21 Jap malas ( 2268 mantras) were performed. The energy and the enthusiasm amongst us was amazing. At the end we all did Aaarti , Mohanji was gearing the program with full vigour. HE ALWAYS DOES HIS JOB!! After performing the naam jaap, the rest of the day our minds were silent to an extent that we felt like we tasted the Thoughtless State 
While gracing us with his Mantra Mohanji had said that it draws energy from him and even if a million people draws energy from him it will just be like a bucket from the ocean. In these turbulent times chanting a mantra not only gives us the strength to bear the unforeseen but heightens our awareness and keeps us connected to the One Consciousness which Mohanji represents.
21st February, Sunday morning breakfast sandwiches of cheese, peanut butter and jam was prepared along with cookies and juice for the needy and handed over to The Sathya Sai Centre of York Region. Later the volunteers in the centre distributed amongst the homeless and the needy in Toronto downtown shelter. See more at  actfoundation.org.

Satisfying someone’s hunger is Mohanji’s prime priority which has taught us how we can share more and more. Gratitude in the Lotus Feet of a Divine Master for walking us the Path of Unconditional Love, Compassion and Service. A devotee informed us that it was full Moon Day and performing Havan would be most the most sacred worship for Mohanji’s birthday. Hence in the given time a Havan was performed and the energy that filled us up was to the brim. Again he showed his presence by accepting everything that was offered in the Havan.
Monday 22nd the celebrations continued with POP meditation in a Coporate office. People felt light and relaxed.
Tuesday February the 23rd, The Day a Great Master, a Divine Soul chose to walk this Earth out of sheer compassion and love for his people had arrived. All were so excited. The morning started by offering Shawl and food to Shirdi Sai in The Shirdi Sai Temple. Sai Baba looked so happy and gracefully accepted the shawl; HIS smile said Mohanji is happy.
Mahamrutyunjay Yagna was performed in the evening for Mohanji’s good health and Long Life. It left us speechless. Aaarti was performed at the end.


Swami Bhaktananda (First Disciple initiated into Sanyaas by Mohanji) had beautifully explained the importance of doing Aaarti. The flame that we light and rotate in front of our God/Masters image/statue with faith and devotion represents the fire element that every person has in their body. As we know Fire destroys everything that comes in its contact, doing Aarti increases the vigour of fire element in our body and cleanses us of all the impurities and negativities that we gather in our day to day life.
These little gestures were a way to show our love to our Master. This is nothing compared to what a Master does and goes through for His Devotees. HE never asks or wants anything from anyone, our happiness and our journey inwards is all that HE is working for day and night. We pray together that this light called MOHANJI that has been sent to us in this life brighten more and more within and we merge totally in this Glow. The celebrations were concluded by another Corporate POP session on Wednesday the 24th. Mohanji’s energy is always strong and loving. Neha who was conducting the meditation had a profound experience of how a Masters grace can heal, this has been shared in another blog Mohanji hears the unspoken. All were smiles and thanked us for sharing this wonderful mediation with them.
Mohanji’s Grace knows no bounds! If emptiness is maintained within, one experiences HIS Grace in Leaps and bounds!!
Jai Ho Mohanji!
Jai Gurdev!

Mohanji Navavasara Jayanti, Mohanjis birthday celebrations in Datta Tapovan South Africa 2016

Written by Swami Bhaktananda Bharati

Nine days celebrating the birth anniversary of our Beloved Master, Guru, Guide and self…. Mohanji Navavarsana 2016 Celebrations. It was a spectacular event, with so many people having such wonderful experiences. The one outcome of these nine days, was that we all bonded even closer as a family. This to me, is the sign that Mohanji was at work. Thank you Babaji for every single thing that you do for us. How can we ever express how much we appreciate what you have done. If Ananta Sesha, with his thousands of heads cannot express your glory, how can we express even 10% of what your unconditional love means to us? Read the full blog.

Johannesburg

South Africa kicked of Mohanji’s birthday celebrations on Saturday at Shumbashaba, equestrian facility.

Saturday was magical and humbling for the volunteers. More than 145 children came to the celebration without prior notice of it being a special day.  The children who arrived were really in need of food and care and everyone felt that Mohanji send the needy.  Most of the children was never seen before at Shumashaba.  They received a warm meal, fruits, cake and a party pack.  We thought we are celebrating his birthday by giving, but on Saturday Mohanji gave many gifts of the soul to us.
Celebrating Mohanji’s birthday a devotee bought all the stock from a small vendor on the street totaling R800. This man was in total disbelief when the devotee started taking more and more of his stock on a extremely hot day. At the end he bought everything. The vendor was lost for words. People around noticed what happened and started clapping. After the devotee loaded the car, the street vendor ran to others and started telling them what happened. It was an incredible experience.

Another volunteer

On Saturday night it was raining heavily while driving one of our volunteers noticed a blind old man had fallen on the side of the road. He parked on the side and other two people also came to help. They lifted a blind man and asked how they can help?
Could they take him to the taxi or give him some money? He said no leave me here I need to beg longer as I promised my daughter that I will collect enough for her school fees and I will not come home until I have enough.
Others gave him some money and our volunteer took the man in the car to rest a bit and asked him more questions.
He asked how much do you need for your daughter and gave him the full amount and then drive him to the transport home.
It was like living a dream the way it all happened. Mohanji’s grace flowed through the volunteer and with the awe and gratitude of a blind man completely transformed our volunteer. He said when you help someone you become as happy as they are!
Seva packs were distributed to needy in Johannesburg.  Goodness was very enchanted with her new blue handbag gift from Mohanji celebrations.

Sulosh Pillai says, “There was an absolute shock and then total joy and a thunderous round of applause! as we announced that In honor of Guruji’s birthday all health clinic patients will get all their medication paid for by us! So proud to be an instrument of Kindness courtesy of Our Guru Mohanji! Blessings”

Keshnie Shanon Pillai says, “Happy Birthday to my beloved Mohanji. Thank you for all your guidance, patience and love. You give me the strength to stand. I hope everything I do is a testament to your unconditional love and nurturing. In honor of your Birthday my friends and I handed out pressies to all the children in the Paediatrics Ward of our hospital. With your grace we brought a little bit of laughter and joy to the lives of the most innocent and precious beings on the planet. Please bless them Guruji, that they are well soon. Let them be healthy and happy and take unconditional love forward to the world. Thank you to the mums of these magnificent kiddies for allowing us to take pictures and post them. Blessings all round”

Mohanjis birthday celebration Australia 2016

 

AUSTRALIA

On Sunday February 21st, members of the Mohanji/ACT Australia family visited the Maribyrnong Immigration Detention Centre a centre for refugees, asylum seekers and illegal immigrants. As access to this center is difficult, we worked with a volunteer organisation called Brigidine Asylum Seeker Project. They regularly visit asylum seekers at this Centre and take required aid to the detainees.
Our volunteers (Ananth, Raksh) spent a good 1.5 hours with inmates from Sri Lanka. They said: “We took with us some biscuits, fruits, dates to be shared with them and few others who were around at that time meeting their family/ friends. The stories of how they survived a 20 day boat journey, the hardships, the unforgiving seas, etc., can never be expressed by words.”
