I was at Subhasree’s, after a troublesome period of experiencing energetic disturbances in my sleep. It did happen during the day as well. Eventually I chose to receive Mai Tri healing as a last resort to help settle things. Subhasree explained to me that it was important to be open to receive, whichever way Mohanji chooses to work through you.
I prayed to Mohanji, “Let me know whatever you want me to know.”
You see, I was experiencing separation from my guru, who guides me from beyond. This caused me to feel abandoned and unwanted. I prayed to Him before I came to London, “Please, I need confirmation. I need to know You are with me and that I am loved.”
My intuitive guidance was blurred at this point and I had doubts about my own guru, who recently broke His own image and caused many people to be upset. I know gurus do that! They have harder tests than us! They have to break every bond in order to move to higher realms of spiritual heights!
I knew my guru was a high being, but I had no physical contact with Him, only strong intuitive guidance, which connected me to His consciousness like an umbilical cord connects a baby in the womb to the mother.
My guru is very strongly linked to Mohanji.
Mohanji’s presence during the healing was palpable. He actually was there! Very gentle. Very soothing! As healing energies began to flow, my tears started to roll!
My guru was there! He was always there! He never left! His funny, witty, loving, flirtatious, even naughty, presence was unmistakable!
I had no doubt, He was with me, I was still loved and protected, despite my various outbursts and doubts about Him, He loved me beyond judgements and conditions my mind had set about His image! I remembered Mohanji’s messages. “A master is never bound by our mental frames. Trust Him! Because the mental frames will keep on breaking!” I bowed to both my gurus and asked for blessings.
Rights and wrongs are man-made! They change.
God isn’t bound by man-made laws of the society.
My Guru showed me the image of Lord Krishna with the chariot wheel, charging at Bhishma, despite His vows of non-involvement in the battle. He broke His own image to protect His disciple, Arjuna!
Such is Guru’s love for us. In truth, we are all Arjuna. We just doubt ourselves and forget we are loved!
I am so blessed to receive this communion through Mai Tri healing.
I am writing this account for those of us who might have felt disconnected or abandoned by the guru at times. It is not easy to cope with that! Though the real guru is our own soul, we need the external guru to connect us within.
Mohanji has always been there to rescue me. Even before I knew about Him!
I received clarity later, much later, as my healing actually continued for days after. I was still in bliss, sleeping soundly, eating well and generally getting deeper and deeper in solitude of the loving embrace of my spiritual mother, my guru. Days later I recognised.
In my mind’s eye, was the question, why do I call Him (Mohanji) my brother?
Mohanji had rescued me from being an exotic dancer, hundreds of incarnations back. He had called me his sister since then!
Lord Hanuman, the one Who is Swift as the Mind and Fast as the Wind, who is the Master of the Senses, and Honoured for His Excellent Intelligence, Learning and Wisdom, Son of the Wind God and Chief among the “Vanaras” (Who were part of the Devas incarnated in the species of the monkeys to serve Sri Rama during His Incarnation), To that Messenger of Sri Rama, I take Refuge (by prostrating before him).
Treta Yuga (The era of Lord Rama) is long gone, however, Lord Hanuman exists even today. He exists in the form of our devotion, utmost surrender to our Gurus and divine. He exists to show us the presence of supreme consciousness, the Para Brahma. Time and again, many devotees have experienced the presence, incarnation and vision of Lord Hanuman.
Needless to say, the one who has eyes can only see! God is everywhere!
One such miraculous appearance of Lord Hanuman happened through the form of our ‘aradhya’, (Respectful) the one in whom we see supreme consciousness – Mohanji. This happened recently while Mohanji was in Palakkad, Kerala and on the auspicious day of 4th anniversary celebration of Shirdi Sai Baba temple in Palakkad.
This miraculous appearance was not just visualised by one person, but multiple people. The grace didn’t even stop there, this appearance was even experienced by another devotee thousands of miles away, many days after this actually happened, just by mere watching photos!
Unbelievable, it may seem, but the sincere and true account from the people who witnessed it directly says it all. Here is a compilation of the experiences by three people who have witnessed this event directly.
Experience sharing by Mahesh Bhalerao
I was very fortunate to meet and receive blessings from the most unassuming and humble Siddha Saint Devi Amma at Her residence in Bangalore. This is the second time I was meeting Her. I had met Her earlier with Mohanji.
Last time Devi Amma explained the secret of why She is holding the pillow all the time near her stomach area. It was a very interesting story and we all laughed. I really love to listen to Her voice when She speaks, as every single word is very divine, loving, full of energy. Mohanji considers Devi Amma as His own mother. Agastya Muni had told Devi Amma that Mohanji is His son and Devi Amma also considers the great Sage as Her father.
This time around like a child, I requested Her to tell us a story and She explained how She met Hanumanji for the first time and how Hanumanji Himself confirmed His identity.
Hanumanji made Her listen to His each and every breath and His every hair saying Ram, Ram, Ram, to confirm His identity.
Remembering that explanation makes me feel amazed every time.
While leaving Devi Amma’s place, She gave me a paper bag saying it has some fruit and specifically an orange for Mohanji, an apple for Mila and a pomegranate for Devi Mohan.
I kept the bag carefully not to lose or misplace it during my travel from Bangalore to Palakkad. I was travelling to Palakkad to be present for the 4th Vardhapan Ceremony of the Shirdi Sai temple in Palakkad. As soon as I reached Mohanji’s house, I met Him prostrated at His feet and got His blessings. Mohanji, very lovingly commanded me to freshen up and get ready to go the temple. Least at that point, did I know what I was going to witness soon! Anyway, I freshened up and wore a new dhoti that was gifted by Priti, and all excited, I went to Mohanji again with the fruit bag that Devi Amma had sent for Him.
Mohanji was sitting with Appa Murali, a great devotee of Maa Kali. Meeting various divine masters and receiving their blessings making my life extremely fulfilling, has been only possible due to my Gurudev, Mohanji’s grace.
The time came to hand over the fruit bag, I did explain to Mohanji that each fruit was for specific person and that the orange was for Him.
Soon after, all of us present in that room witnessed an amazing play of divine masters, exhibiting the oneness.
Devi Maa had evoked Hanumanji in front of us when she delivered me the fruits! As soon as Mohanji received the orange, His upper lip started to swell up and was steadily growing outwards, His eyes were intense. His face turned clearly appearing as Lord Hanuman’s face!
Witnessing this, I had no other reaction but the Maruti stotra was flowing out of my mouth and tears flowing.
It was as if time stopped till I finished Maruti Stotra. When I finished the chant, Mohanji looked at me and asked me if I had completed the stotra and then asked everyone to move on and get going towards Sai temple for the ceremony. He could barely open His mouth and speak.
I looked at Devadas and his eyes were closed and my sister Anila was looking at me, trying to tell me that it was Hanuman with her hand actions. I was very happy and felt that if Hanuman Ji was with us, Shree Rama was with us too! Later on, I realized that Shree Rama was waiting for Mohanji in the form of Sai Baba at the temple.
We all reached the temple and Mohanji was received with lot of respect. Mohanji then proceeded to carry out the Dhwajarohan – a flag hoisting ceremony to formally inaugurate the three-day long Vardhapan programme.
Mohanji always reminds us that CONNECTION, CONVICTION and CONSISTENCY are key to spiritual growth and I realised how true this is today. With the heart filled with unconditional love and devotion for Guru, it’s possible to experience what usually seems unbelievable. When doubts appear as clouds in our mind, we fail to see the light of truth. Then again, if we surrender completely, ignoring doubts, truth appears right in front of our eyes and enters our heart. We become inseparably one with our Guru, like Hanumanji with Lord Ram.
Deep gratitude Mohanji, for Your grace of giving me this amazing darshan!
At your feet Father… as always…, Jai Shree Brahmarishi Mohanji

I have gone through various difficult situations in my life in recent times. But since I’ve connected to Mohanji, they were not just bearable, but very often smooth and even elegant. After my divorce, l didn’t have a place to stay. Within two weeks, l moved into a beautiful apartment and it is all because of Mohanji’s Grace. Mohanji loves me and takes care of me every moment. For the last couple of months, I have even had an opportunity to travel with Him to various places in India. Being in the close proximity of such a powerful master is a very deep cleansing process for myself and definitely a ladder for my spiritual growth. He knows what we need, when we need. Everything is provided and taken care of. All we need is to be available and open to receive. During this time of travelling around India with Him, I have had many amazing life changing experiences. One of such experiences, which opened something completely new, very subtle, I would like to share with you here. It helped me to understand Him better.
On 28th of January, it was the inauguration of the programme to celebrate the 4th Anniversary of Shirdi Sai Temple in Palakkad, Kerala. As a guest of honour, Mohanji was invited to inaugurate the celebration. A couple of us were staying with Mohanji, at His parents’ house and just before we went to the temple, Mahesh Bhalerao, who had come that morning from Bangalore, brought a bag of fruit for Mohanji. That was a present from Devi Amma, a very warm, sweet, powerful authentic Siddha, who loves Mohanji as her son.
At that moment, Mahesh told us, that Devi Amma was chanting Hanumanji’s mantra, while giving him the present for Mohanji! For those who are not familiar with the name Hanumanji, short explanation is that He was the bravest, the most loyal, persistent and ardent devotee of Lord Rama, who has a lot of value in scriptures like the Ramayana. In Hinduism He is one of the most worshipped deity, hidden behind the being who has a face like a monkey.
Mohanji is Hanumanji! Yes, Shiva has many forms!
In such a miraculous moment, we left the house and went to the Shirdi Sai temple. After He had received a warm welcome with priests applying sandalwood paste on His forehead and trustees garlanding him, Mohanji was invited to hoist the flag and begin the celebration. While standing in front of the flagpole, surrounded by a lot of people, His face continued to change. His upper lip became bigger and His cheeks became very firm, but He didn’t show any kind of confusion, on the contrary, Mohanji was standing there, as steady as a mountain. The moment He took the rope and started to raise the flag, I was blown away. His cheeks expanded even more, and the colour of His eyes changed into oily dark green.
After a very powerful whole-day ceremony, we came home.
Mila, Mohanji’s daughter ran into His arms, asking, “Papa, what happened to your upper lip, you have no teeth, I can’t see your teeth.” Mohanji was smiling like a child and said: “Papa has teeth, can’t you see them?”
After a couple of days, three of us were sitting with Him and talking. I couldn’t keep all the impressions from that particular day within me anymore!
“We saw You as Hanuman that day” I said. He was smiling at me and said, “Where does Hanuman sit, when Lord Krishna is a Charioteer? Hanuman sits on the flag. Those who have eyes to see, will see.” It is interesting that most people assembled at the flag hoisting ceremony did not see anything. They did NOT notice the change on Mohanji’s face!
It’s important for me to mention though that during my 3-month-long travel with Mohanji, never before this event or post this event day, have I seen any changes in Mohanji face! I am convinced that what we saw on that day is not an ordinal physiological change. This was indeed a strong message to us, whoever could see and understand it. I am definitely one of the lucky ones!
Thank you, Mohanji, for giving me the opportunity to see! Once You said, “We’re on the path of annihilation, not entertainment. I’m the fire, be at least the flame!” I am eternally grateful for having an opportunity to witness and to understand, for the first time, more clearly than ever, what it means to be an empty vessel. Thank you my beloved Guruji Mohanji for giving me a chance to experience the Truth!
It’s all Your grace!
Endless love and gratitude at your Lotus Feet.

The last 10 years of my life have been an onslaught of many emotional roller coasters, the last one being an unwell child which shook the very core of my existence. As a mother, I couldn’t do anything to help my suffering child except pray, chant, hold on to faith and practice very badly at times, patience that everything would come out fine. With Mohanji’s ongoing support, divine guidance and blessings, individual prayers and distance healing sessions, grace flowed. After some painful treatments, karmic healing and spiritual understanding which had to take place, recovery took place and she got better very rapidly. Thank you Mohanji for guiding me and for being with me.
Despite this unbelievable full recovery of almost two-and- a-half years of a child’s sickness, unbeknown to me, the journey had taken its toll on me. Suddenly, after two very active years of looking after a sick patient day and night, I had nothing to do, no one to fill my empty moments of inactivity and I began asking a lot of questions. I couldn’t sit quietly to do any of my spiritual practices which I don’t forget. I thought I had to do 5000 hours of chanting, breathing, etc. to raise my vibrational level and get me out of tamas!
The mind became overactive, scrupulously clever and devious. As I was closely watching my thoughts, as a witness, a thought came in through the back door and before I knew it, I was overloaded with 5000 thoughts. Tamas was setting in deep taking me away from my active self. I became a ‘couch potato’. My spirit was stagnating down, spirally downwards.
I didn’t have any deep experiences of any kind to solidify my conviction that a higher awareness exists or any conviction at that time to hold on to. It became a Catch-22 situation – the more I thought the more it took me away from my conviction and faith, even though I was honoured to have met and spent time with Mohanji on many occasions. My mind wanted to meet a deeper aspect of who Mohanji is. My mind wanted to know more, I wanted a deep inner revelation to see who Mohanji is, to see a facet of this divine consciousness that we call Mohanji.
Well, this opportunity came to me recently.
I attended the 2017 Himalayan Retreat with Mohanji on the ghats of the river Ganges. It was 100% joyous, all my earthly five senses were to the max, and I was abuzz with the aromas of the Ganga Aarti incense sticks which the fresh Himalayan winds were bringing to the cold nose. Ah those unforgettable perfumes! The wonderful sounds of devotees’ bhajans and colourful sights of the melodious aarti on the ghats of Ram Jhula, dancing with Mohanji and other devotees – every moment was unforgettable. The crisp cold dips in the Ganges together with jugs of freezing cold water poured from our Guru’s hands cleaning away karmas from life times after life times. The delicious homemade scrumptious tasty vegan dishes all cooked fresh three times a day tingled my taste buds. Precious days!
These wonderful sunny days at the Divine Resort in Rishikesh were blissful to say the least, however, the last day was approaching and my heart was sad it was coming to an end. I was beginning to experience love which, for whatever reason, I had failed to receive as a young child. I selfishly wanted to spend more time in the presence of our Guru hoping that my heart chakra could open. Luckily, I realised very quickly, at the first Satsang Mohanji conducted, that I had come with an expectation. So, I decided that the best course was to go and spend some time alone after the retreat contemplating in an ashram to quieten my buzzy mind. However, to my surprise this was not to be the end. My Guru had other plans for me! This was just the beginning of my travels in India along with Mohanji. There was much more to come. I was fortunate to be invited to travel with Him along with a few other devotees, to many other locations. So, I was braced for the ride of my life. Oh boy!
Unimaginable days passed during which we met masters and avadhootas, and visited many samadhis and powerful temples. The other devotees talked about their own experiences of visits with powerful masters. Over the six years that I have been with Mohanji, I have read many accounts of fabulous deep unforgettable experiences/dreams/visits at the astral level from masters and gods. I had none of the above! I felt maybe I was not worthy of any such astral experience until I perform at least 5000 million hours of Japa, or that I should clear more karmic baggage in order to receive. See where the mind could take you?
I had, however, experienced several instances where Mohanji protected me during my travels in India in some very tough situations: one was when our Guru made possible a small tyre fixing shop to be miraculously there in the middle of the vast un-inhabitable barren land in the middle of the Indian countryside. My punctured tyre got repaired by the tyre shop keeper and I got to Pune airport in plenty of time for flight! Thank you Mohanji.
I was with Mohanji at his parents’ home in Palakkad recently, along with a couple of others. There was a special occasion of the 4th anniversary of Palakkad Shirdi Sai temple. Mohanji was one of the chief guests invited to attend this 3-day long programme. On the first day, Mohanji was supposed to hoist the flag and inaugurate the function. In the morning while we were busy getting ready for the day, I found that I had become the unofficial photographer (with my small Samsung phone which didn’t really take any good HD close-ups) as it was the only thing available.
Mahesh arrived very early that morning from Bangalore directly from Devi Amma who had sent fruit for Mohanji, Devi ji and Mila. Earlier as Devi Amma had handed this to Mahesh she had chanted a mantra invoking the deities’ essence into this gift, especially Lord Hanuman.
When Mohanji took this gift from Mahesh, I noticed that Mohanji’s lower lip had swollen up and the upper lip was steadily doing the same and His eyes were intense but still. By this time, Mahesh recognised Mohanji’s transformation and was on his knees chanting, he understood whom Devi Amma had invoked. I was slowly starting to realise what was happening in front of my very own eyes. I looked at Jelena to see if she had clocked what was going on. I saw from her face that she had also noticed the miracle that was unfolding. Mohanji’s face was physically changing in front of us into Hunumanji’s face, the half-monkey half-human devotee/servant/son of Ram and Sita.
I prostrated at Mohanji’s feet, Mahesh and Jelena did the same, tears started to well up, but I was in disbelief. I couldn’t believe what was taking place as my overactive mind was confused. I began to take photos snapping from as many different angles as possible to make sure what I was seeing was true and it was all recorded for other devotees to see. Frantically I kept on clicking pictures. None of the photos showed or mirrored exactly what I was physically seeing, that of, Mohanji’s lips increasing in size and cheeks puffing up. Why were my photos not showing what I could clearly see?
We had to leave on time to attend the flag hoisting ceremony at the Sai temple. Mohanji is always very punctual no matter what! No one said anything and there was a complete silence, but my mind was not silent – it was racing like mad in disbelief at what I was at first hand witnessing. Hanumanji was right here in front of me, the greatest devotee of God was present here in this very room, then car but for some reason I couldn’t take photos of this phenomenon!
I wanted to go live on Facebook and record all this or at least tell the whole world what was happening, even just to tell some of my close friends who knew Mohanji, what was happening. The problem was in my utter disbelief in this wonderful darshan of our greatest true Bhakta (devotee). My photos were at that time reflecting my inner self – my disbelief! In order to record this miracle taking place I had to shut the mind down. Digest, accept and let everything unfold in silence, no questions. Stop doing and just witness this beautiful miracle taking place in its full entity without the mind. Realisation dawned on me, I was not present. The mind had taken over.
Mohanji was briefed on the flag hoisting procedure and timings and my own awareness of the present moment was growing, I slowly started to see in my photos Hanumanji raising the orange flag. My mind was emptying slowly but surely. Silence was being established after a long time of noise.
It was later explained to me that at the top of Arjuna’s Chariot there’s an orange flag with a picture of Hanumanji flying high lovingly and powerfully protecting the chariot and the people in it. One incident from the Ramayana touched my heart. During the construction of the bridge from India to Sri Lanka Hanumanji’s devotion to Ram and Sita was so fervent and resolute, that He grew in size and laid across over the sea from India to Shri Lanka, so Ram could step over Him without falling into the sea, and continue His mission to rescue Sita from the Ravan’s clutches.
Many times during the inauguration day, my heart felt full with gratitude. Time and time again my eyes filled up with tears in realising the enormity of how fortunate we were to have such an unpretentious Guru in our lives. He works unselfishly and tirelessly every single moment of the day through His conviction and purity to raise the vibrations of the earth towards betterment for all species. Mohanji’s swollen face as Hanumanji Himself was fully visible for all to see and wonder, but He remained sincere and a true humble silent devotee to the Nath tradition. There was no huge drama or speech, He was the witness to the witness. Later, I showed Mohanji the pictures I put up on my personal Facebook profile, these were shots of Him as Hanumanji and still He was silent to the whole miraculous phenomenon that took place the day before. Mohanji hardly spoke about the incident at all.
A few days before this incident Mohanji had been asked by an old sincere true devotee/ priest of a Hanumanji temple just outside of Trissur, what would Mohanji like as a request to go forward. Mohanji answered without any hesitation was simply “please protect the entire Mohanji global family”. He could have asked for anything but chose (due to the turbulent planetary situation with Saturn) to ask for protection of the entire Mohanji group. The old priest said, “It is done”. Many people have been writing of personal experience where they have felt Mohanji’s hand protecting them.
Today for me there are no burning questions in my mind as to what happened on that day of the flag hoisting, only inner realisation that it is only through silence of the mind, acceptance, of what is without judgement or documentary and in increasing awareness, true faith and patience that all your desires, intentions and thoughts get revealed. Lifetimes get cleansed in its own good time by the Guru, no sooner or later. My wish to see a deeper facet of Mohanji was granted. Befriend silence and much more will come to you. Wow, that simple!
My deepest of the deepest gratitude to Mohanji for giving me this precious opportunity to travel with Him and Mohanji family, allowing me to be a witness to a deeper side of Him, HANUMANJI! Allowing me to ask Him questions even though He knew they were sometimes irrelevant and mind-oriented questions. He patiently answered them with clarity and most times seeing ‘the penny drop’ in me.
I thank You Mohanji for every moment in Your presence even now, You are 1000 of miles away from me but am aware You are here with me in essence, in everything bathed in pure divinity. Please accept this account of my experience at Your lotus feet.
Jai Shri Brahmarishi Mohanji
“Those who have eyes will see”:
The Mahesh’s, Jelena’s and Priti’s experiences of about the appearance of Lord Hanuman in Mohanji’s face have been direct experiences and indeed experiences that will remain one of the highest experiences of their lives as well as everyone else’s who reads this.
During the Rishikesh retreat in December 2017, a view from Mohanji’s room window also spotted as Hanuman’s face directly looking at His room. This was spotted by two devotees and was captured by their ordinary phone camera.
Back in 2014, on Hanuman Jayanthi, Lata and Ganesh’s residence in Virginia USA, Hanuman appeared on Mohanji’s photo! On the morning of Hanuman Jayanthi, while Lata had already left for work, Ganesh performed the special puja on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanthi, offered prasad and aarti. Just before leaving the Puja room, he suddenly felt the urge to take a picture and took out his phone to click one. However, since he was in a rush, without seeing the photo that he had just clicked, he rushed to his office. On his way, while stuck at a traffic light, he took out his phone to call someone. Suddenly the photo that he had clicked before leaving home, popped up. The vision in the photo was astounding for him, as it showed Mohanji’s face as Hanuman’s face. This was a photo taken in a room with normal sunlight, no flashing lights used or no trick photography done. An ordinary phone clicking a normal photograph, had indeed captured an extraordinary vision. This was an indication of a very high value, that his devotion had been accepted and divine presence had been exhibited! Whether you are in proximity of the master or thousands of miles away, the true connection with consciousness, together with devotion and surrender can bring forth any miracles! Here is the extraordinary photo that was captured by Ganesh’s ordinary camera, leaving a powerful thought for everyone!
Mohanji’s stature is such that, in a very subtle and unassuming way, He shows His reality to the people who are very much connected to His consciousness, without much hype about anything. Connection to His consciousness being the key, whether in the physical proximity or not whoever is destined to experience Mohanji’s multiple dimensions will indeed get a chance to see it. Divine miracles will be a reality to devotees when there is pure and unconditional love and surrender to the master. Merger with the supreme consciousness then is not far away!
“Beware. Be aware. I am not another. I am not Rama, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Sai, Hanuman as well as any masters or avatars of the past or future. I am Mohanji of the present time. I am born as Mohanji and will die as Mohanji. When “I” do not exist, everything exists, including this one that is known as Mohanji. Be clear. Do not be deluded. Do NOT connect to me as someone else, or else you will be disappointed. Your superimposition will not work on me. Connect to me, if you want to, as Mohanji, accepting all the weaknesses and strengths that this incarnation carries.” Mohanji

On the occasion of Janmashtami I wish to share the truth existence experienced during last 4 years. It is Krishna and nothing else. But the truth was shown to me after several tests only. When Vivek, my son left his physical body I could feel the strong and loving presence of lord for the first time in life. Till then, completely lost in terrestrial existence I could never feel the love he was showering on me. On the 3rd day after Vivek left us lord came to my hand in the form of Bhagavatham. Ever since lord is guiding me with his unconditional love. Lord asked me to see my child in all the children and serve them selflessly. He showers endless blessings to his devotees.
Soon after Vivek’s death I got the fortune to meet lord as a young boy in Guruvayoor temple who assured me that Vivek is safe in his abode. But illusion is so strong that it keep on creating doubts in the mind of devotees. The kind lord answers all prayers of his beloved devotees again and again.
In the path of liberation whenever I stumbled, lord sent his representatives to pick me up and lead me forward against all odds. There are numerous occasions like that.
These tangible experiences prove lord’s immeasurable love and kindness for his devotees. Two of them I want to share with you.
Although I was getting profound experiences in POP meditations, I had doubts about possibility of hallucinations. Some external opinions added to it. I prayed to Krishna intensely for help. Shernazji was the instrument to clarify this doubt. One Friday I could not attend the group meditation and I meditated from home. Then I had a beautiful vision of lord Muruga blessing me. Next day Shernazji took me to a swami who is in the consciousness of lord Saravana. Without any enquiry swami told me that he came in my meditation to bless me. He assured me that I am going to have a soul union with Krishna soon.
The next one is the most profound experience I had. I lost my son at the age of 38. Due to tubal sterilisation which I had done and my age doctors were negative about the chance of having another child. But due to intense mental depression I was not able to digest this fact and went for the treatment. There was no result and after one year I left that desire too. On my birthday on March 2012 Baba sent me blessings in a unique, miraculous way.
I had earlier mentioned about Mukundanji in Dubai famous for Baba’s consciousness. That particular day I was in a very bad mood feeling the emptiness and with a troubled mind I was spending the day. Suddenly I felt the presence of Baba with me and started meditating on him. I had a clear vision of Baba blessing me putting both hands on my head. In a trance state I phoned Mukundanji. Usually I never call him and he will not go to bless anyone unless Baba asks him. When I called him he was surprised. He asked me to come down from the flat. It was a surprise for me. There is at least 20 min driving from his place to my home. But when I reached down I saw Mukundanji waiting for me. He was taking the blessings to one of Baba’s devotees and when he reached near my home Baba asked him to give it to me. He gave me some rose petals from Babas garland in Shirdi and asked me to keep it with me in my bedroom. Baba’s message was to keep faith and rest is assured.
During the Kailsh Yatra I was cleared of many of my past lives karmas by Mohanji. Again in many dreams, lord asked me to keep faith in him and serve unconditionally. In the month of August I had the most powerful astral journey. Sree Sathya Sai Baba came in my dreams for the first time and lead me to the abode of Krishna, taking my hands. I wish I could share the beauty of that experience in words. I saw my child and many other children in lord’s abode. When my body was lying motionless in Sharjah, the real me was taken to different astral planes. I could feel the oneness among all, could experience the detachment and finally I had the bliss of merging to Krishna consciousness. Lord asked me to take pilgrimage with my family to fulfill certain vows and towards the end of it I got the miraculous news that I am blessed with a baby. We got Anagha Lakshmi on 22nd April, 2013. Now when I turn back and see the journey I can see that it’s all Krishna’s mercy. Again and again lord appeared in my life and he is the only truth. This journey will continue…
The power of pure devotion and selfless love can be experienced only with his grace. Even devotion is his gift. I am blessed with the experience of lords mercy and love in day today life. I had doubts and had been judged wrongly for my devotion and love. But masters kept me under their protection. I had seen Krishna in my father, husband, children and above all in my guru. Today seeing Krishna in every being around me, I am able to face all the challenges with smile. “Whoever is your guru, surrender to the guru tattwa flowing through him”. Soul is much more powerful than body. This is my own experience in the path of truth and the messages I am getting constantly.
As a closing note I humbly invite the soul presence of all family members on the occasion of inaugration of “Vivek memorial hall ” in my small village. This too is a wish came true by master’s blessings. The inauguration is on 1st April at 3pm .
“The Guru is God Himself manifesting in a personal form to guide the aspirant. Grace of the God takes the form of Guru. The Guru/Disciple relationship is the highest expression of friendship for it’s based on unconditional love and wisdom. It is the loftiest and most sacred of all relationships.”
I consider myself twice blessed as I had the great fortune of knowing two great saints at a very close proximity, apart from many virtual gurus. I met my first Guru, Paramahamsa Ramananda, after my marriage, who initiated me into meditation out of His great love and kindness. Soon after that he attained samadhi at a ripe age of 93. Though I found his unmistakable guidance at every step of my life, my heart longed for a Guru who is approachable and with whom I could converse freely and satisfy my spiritual quest. I would fervently pray my Guru to bless me meet a “true saint”.
My prayers were finally answered and the auspicious day had come when I met Guru Mohanji. His unconditional love, compassion, warmth and friendly attitude stuck the chords of my heart. I started to feel that YES this was the Guru I was looking for. Other than praying Him sincerely I knew nothing. He would respond to the prayers immediately and always said that ‘a true devotee’ is his weakness. I started experiencing a lot of spiritual upliftment in his divine presence and my family and friends also started noticing the shift taking place in me. Just being in His divine presence was enough to experience the change taking place mentally and spiritually.
One fine day Guruji called me aside and said that he wants to initiate me into “Shaktipat”, so that I am helpful to the people around who are in distress to remove the negative vibes and blocks. Since He cannot be everywhere physically, he told me to do my part for the society. He assured me that it will be through me He will be operating and I being only the medium. My happiness knew no bounds as this was my mission in life, to be helpful to the people around. I was wondering how a True Guru understands the psyche of His disciple. I just couldn’t thank all the Gods and Gurus who were guiding me above for giving me this rare opportunity to help others.
I noticed on my first POP meditation Guruji’s hand doing Shaktipat to me first. When I started to give Shaktipat to my friends, I strongly felt the invisible hand of our Guruji over mine. It was blissful to feel how a True Guru keeps up His word.
I messaged my experience to Mohanji for which he said he was there during the meditation and he was very happy the way it was conducted. Last but not the least, in his usual sense of humor he said that the “dosas” which I made as an offering to him were very delicious. What a fortune it was to hear this.
When a Guru’s grace falls on the disciple, so many bad karmas gets washed away due to their compassion and benignity. All that we need to do is to follow the Guru’s teachings and love Him sincerely from the heart.
2nd June 2013, was marked as a memorable day indeed for the entire Bless The World family. The launch of first ever music album sung by the devotees of Mohanji, expressing their deep love and gratitude towards Him, which otherwise is so beyond words.
The journey began when during the Power of Purity meditation in Muscat, Nandita Singh, one of the BTW members (resident of Gurgaon) saw a vision of many people performing Aarti of Mohanji. Nandita kept this to herself on that day. Next day when she visited Mohanji again, Mohanji said “Aarti has been written by someone and is in Pune.” Nandita understood the message. The vision was then shared with others, and then there was no looking back. ONE STEP TAKEN BY A DEVOTEE WAS SUPPORTED BY THOUSAND STEPS OF THE MASTER.
He paved the path and showered guidance at every step from there on. Within next 24 hours Harshini, another devotee had the Aarti written. This was unexpected for our human minds. Yet Grace and the devotee’s devotion failed the mind. We all then started looking around for singers and musicians. Word was spread over. But Master didn’t want to wait! Within minutes of spreading the word, one devotee ‘happened’ to visit Shirdi Sai Baba temple at Lodhi Road, and her attention was taken straight to the singer performing there. She asked him, and he agreed to sing the Aarti. NO DELAYS! The first Aarti was sung and recorded over the mobile phone! Master’s plan had started to take shape in front of our physical eyes. This first Aarti created ripples in the hearts of many, and touched the devotion unexpressed in them.
Looking back it seems this Aarti triggered many devotees and gave them the way and opportunity to express their otherwise indescribable love for their Master. All stored emotions oozed out and took shape of many more Bhajans. The GLOBAL BTW family came together;Master was simultaneously working through all. HE became the lyricist, the musician, the technician, the coordinator and even the producer. Suddenly all were empowered and one could just step aside and see the flow of this phenomenon in complete awe. Bhajans started to flow in from across the globe. Now we needed a professional studio with musician. This was meant to be much bigger than we thought. It was not just one Aarti, but a collection of many Bhajans, and definitely not just one CD. Our list of Bhajans was extending with every passing day.
We soon found a recording studio. Aartis and bhajans were recorded again, with lot of rehearsals and in professional supervision. Before we knew we were working on almost 3-4 CDs, including CDs in Mohanji’s voice. He graciously accepted our request of coming to the recording studio and gave His voice to chants. The CD is in the making.
The production and preparation was a zero tamas activity. There was no scope of delays as it was happening at a break neck speed. One technical challenge that we faced at the last moment was the production of the CDs. When the final songs were recorded and finalized, there were only four days left for the launch. We approached Moser Baer for the production and they agreed to give it in this short time. Usually their minimum time line is two weeks. But it meant that they had to be giving all the cover designs, labels, etc in few hours! Tamas was beaten to death and four CD cover designs and CD labels were made in just four hours and delivered to Moser Baer! This certainly is unheard of in the music industry! And again, the design work was also done in-house and was the expression of love and devotion for the Guru
What was next! THE LAUNCH of this ‘phenomenon’.
A historic event indeed! Three albums were released; Fragrance of Devotion
and Mohanji Gayatri Mantra.
These CDs are a collection of Aartis and Bhajans; written, composed, and sung by His devotees, expressing their deep love and gratitude for their beloved Master.
The guest of honor was Mr. Dipak Haksar, COO of ITC Group. The singers shone with bhakti by having live performances and Mohanji Himself gave satvic prasad from Madhuban to all. The event was further graced when Mohanji presented Mementos of appreciation for inherent selflessness to all the volunteers. It was a day of immense love, grace and celebration for all.
The day ended with million smiles, love flowing in every heart, and a deep sense of gratitude, however the events of the day tried their best to deviate us from it all. This was a special event, first of its kind, for every member. The entire family was working as ONE to bring it together. Be it the production of CDs, preparation of venue, organizing the prasaad, or managing the event on the day. Few members got together even a night before to prepare the small packs of incense which were given to the people as a small token of ‘fragrance of devotion’, to label the CDs, to run through the list of ‘to do things’. It felt like a wedding in the family 🙂 The morning of 2nd June started off well, the venue was dressed and decorated with flowers, musicians came, volunteers were all dressed in Indian attires adding to the flavour of the evening, singers rehearsing, with Master’s pictures in the background.
The entire ambience was only to be felt, HE was in every atom in that moment, so visible. Then the physical form arrived, Mohanji reached the venue 30 minutes before the scheduled time. From our experience of organizing events in Delhi, we knew there was a reason to this, too. He quietly went into the library of Sri Ramana Kendra (the venue) to wait for the event to start. People were walking in, volunteers welcoming them with tilak and a small pack of incense. All were seated, eagerly waiting for Mohanji to enter the main hall, when JUST THEN WE HEARD SOME BLASTS. One after the other and we had a sudden power cut at the venue.
The main electricity unit of the building had caught fire. Everyone ran to the unit and there was a sudden panic due to the fire. Mohanji was informed and He immediately walked to it, too. In the meantime the fire extinguishers from across building were brought in, and the fire was put to rest. Mohanji stood there, SMILING, almost GIGGLING, and we knew who did it 🙂
And then we witnessed one of the most amazing things of the evening, NO ONE PANICKED ABOUT HOW THE LAUNCH WILL HAPPEN WITHOUT ELECTRICITY. Everyone was calm and composed, and certain that the live performances will happen as scheduled without microphones, audiences will sit without fans and air-conditioning in the Delhi heat. And just then Mohanji announced that we will go ahead without the electricity and WE DID!
Master has His own ways! With this incident, we cannot even comprehend what He removed from so many of us. His ways are beyond our minds, all we can do is have FAITH, Surrender to His Divine sports and allow ourselves to flow. Launch evening was the perfect example of this.
Even without the electricity we had the most beautiful evening of Devotion. Devotees sang from their heart, which needed no microphones and speakers to reach the heart of others. About 60 people took turn to perform Mohanji’s aarti, with loud singing from hearts, high beats of claps with tabla and harmonium, we all experienced an indescribable HIGH.
We are certain that the lives of all those who are a part of this ‘phenomenon’ have changed. Bringing this collection together was no less than a miracle. None of these singers or composers or even the producers, had ever stepped into a recording studio in their lives before this. Their inspiration is Mohanji and their intention is to share with the world the joy and transformation they experienced through Mohanji. When the hearts were open, the words flowed, the music came, shy housewives sang, corporate officials turned writers; a group of novice not-even-musicians followed the call of their hearts and sang praises of their Master, every word expressing deep Gratitude and Love
Mr. and Mrs. Ranjan – Composed and sung Bhajans for ‘Fragrance of Devotion’, share one of their many experiences.
I was driving in my car to office, one and a half hours drive from my home in Gurgaon, when there was a strong urge to write and sing a Bhajan for Mohanji.
Sitting in the back seat of the car, my eyes closed, it was as if words started filling me. In just a matter of 30 minutes the words for the Bhajan were with me. I have never in my life written even a poem what to talk of Bhajan of three stanzas but here it was – ‘Hum Sabke Ke Pyare Mohan’. I instantly knew that my desire was given words by some divine power – who else could it be but Mohanji Himself!
I had an old Hindi Bhajan and I found that the words given to me were fitting beautifully to that. I discussed with my wife Vibha and we decided to sing it. We thought the song came out quite well and we were eager to present it to Mohanji. Nandita then informed us that a CD of Aartis and Bhajans is being planned but that the music should not be a copy of any song; and it should be original! She then said just take Mohanji’s name and try new original music and it will come! Neither me nor Vibha are music composers nor we have that in us. But on being coaxed by Nandita we sat with the harmonium and there was an absolute miracle. The music flowed and in less than 5 minutes the Bhajan in its present form was before us! We were totally overwhelmed with emotions at Mohanji’s help!
It was a exhilarating experience to sing the Bhajan live in Mohanji’s Divine presence on 2nd June at the launch of the CD at the Ramana Kendra.
Arihant Gupta – Singer and Composer for the Album ‘M’, shares his journey of the making his debut album.
Birth of “M “(Music Album of devotional songs)
There is so much to tell about the experience of working of our father Divine Mohanji with me that one finds it difficult from where to start. But I would like to start right from the beginning.
Our group of BTW family members in Jammu started our journey to Kud ‘Mohanji’s Dham’ in J&K by passing through Udhampur, as Mohanji had to meet the children in ISKCON temple there. I had decided a long time back that I will seek my Guruji’s opinion regarding my deep interest in music so that He suggests me which path to follow, as my efforts were useless otherwise. Finally when we reached Kud and were sitting with Him next morning I got the opportunity and I told Him. To my surprise Mohanji’s response was so quick and positive that without even thinking or testing me for once He straight away asked me to create an album of devotional songs for BTW family and most importantly He had so much of faith and confidence in me about my capabilities which no one had, not even my own parents. Even though they always have been a big support but they also feared if I would be able to handle such a huge responsibility.
I was overwhelmed with happiness and the confidence my Master had in me. He also mentioned that in SIX MONTHS time the album will be finished and launched. Then every bit of detail, like number of songs and title of the album, source and matter for lyrics etc. were automatically taking place in the same manner.
From there started the journey and Birth of “M”. I had my own bit of doubts that how everything will go and take final shape. But since my Master had so much of confidence in me I became fearless and started working on the album. I wrote the first lyrics and then composed my first song ”O gracious one” which gave me inspiration to work further. Despite such a busy schedule with my studies, I was working on this album with a lot of interest and many creative thoughts started knocking at my door. It was clearly visible how Master was working through me and managing everything.
I would also like to mention that whenever my thoughts were clear and surrendered to Master only then His Grace would flow in me. At times when mind was occupied and I felt as if I was out of connection with Him, doesn’t matter how hard I tried nothing happened. It was only when my heart was clear and thoughts channelized that music, lyrics and different compositions came within me.
One of the most astounding of all experiences was of composing of “Hare Krishna“. We had come back from Kumbh Mela and I had a strong feeling that something really big has to happen. The very next day as I was sitting in my room alone after dinner and trying to sleep, suddenly a thought to play guitar came in my mind. The lights were all off and as I connected with Mohanji and started strumming on my guitar something out of the world happened. I started chanting Hare Krishna, which had completely taken over me during Kumbh Mela and with my eyes closed I first experienced white light. The words and chords automatically started flowing and so did the framing of song structure. It is hard to believe that the whole song was composed and designed in just 15 minutes, which is impossible as compared with the quality of the composition formed.
I was speechless and in a state of complete bliss!!!
Then came the time of final exams in college and I still had five more songs to work on. I started getting restless and a bit hyper as to how the things will go further. But with my faith in Master, the things went so easily, comfortably and beautifully.
Finally the composition part was done and now we were left with recording the Album in studio, but unfortunately I fell sick and was hospitalized. Constant thoughts of completing the album were always on my mind. There also with divine grace of Mohanji I recovered so quickly, that everything happened on time once again. Soon we started with recording of my vocals and guitar. Since time for producing the CDs needed at least 5 days, we were running short of time. But with Mohanji’s grace and His presence all the time we were able to give music to all 9 songs in just 18 hours. On last evening I and Guna (our studio guy) started at 1pm and completed the work at 6am the next morning. I still remember that even after working the whole night I had so much of energy in me that I was completely fresh without any urge to sleep or rest.
As Mohanji was in Delhi at that time, I went to meet Him after completing the work. He had just taken his bath and came out the room, we both had an eye contact and smiled. He, with such humbleness and simplicity, asked me, ‘how did it go? Are you satisfied?’ I was overwhelmed with happiness, wanted to tell Him everything I experienced, but His smiled conveyed that He knew already.
My father told me once that I and your mother may not be there with you forever but one thing you must know, that you have your divine father Mohanji is with you and will always be there with you forever.
