We had BTW meditation on Friday 29th Jan at Pune.
Mohanji told me earlier me that I need not inform him about the time of meditation and that, as we start the Aum chanting, he will get connected. It happened that way!
My father-in-law’s best friend Mr. G S Thorat, who is a CA, runs a massive firm and is a consultant for more than 20 sugar factories. His first sugar factory will start functioning soon. This was his time first to meditate ever! He was deeply affected by it. Later on, he asked so many questions about spirituality and meditation. We were discussing that till late night over dinner. 🙂
Seema Khot who is the Head of Corporate Social Responsibility with SUZLON Foundation, and my dear friend, said: ‘Deepali I never wanted you to remove your hand from my head!’
Mohanish said that his abdomen and back had become water and were forming waves!
All had their unique experiences. All, including my Mummy-Puppa, had lost time sense. They were amazed when I told them that we sat for 1hr and 15mins!
This was a short, sweet and intimate meditation indeed.
Mohanji, they all asked me to convey “Big thanks” to you.
I would like to share with you a small miracle, or shall I say, Divine help that came to me two days back.
As you must be aware, Glaucoma in the eye is a very serious disease and it is hereditary. Since my mom lost her eyesight because of this dreadful disease, the doctors had advised me to check my eyes regularly. For months I have been thinking of doing that, but never pushed myself to go to an eye doctor although my visit was long overdue (last checkup was 3-4 years back). I have a very bad habit of keeping myself miles away from any doctor. I know I have suffered, but I hate going to doctors or taking medicines unless and until it is very,very essential.
Now here comes the divine help. Two days back somebody kept an invitation on our door step regarding the opening of a new clinic close to our house. My husband Baji said that ,since it’s close by, we should get our eyes checked to see if our numbers have increased or not. As usual, my first reaction was “NO” but later on I agreed to go and check my eyes for Glaucoma (I don’t know what made me change my mind). When we went there, the doctor checked my eyes and gave me the sad news – that Glaucoma already started and that the damage on my left eye is already 24%. That was a shock! He asked me to come the next day in order to do a more detailed check up. He said that, if I waited for another month, Glaucoma attack would have really ruined my eyesight.
I knew right away that there was a Divine hand in this. How many times I told Dr. Bajaj (the eye doctor who stays in my building) that I would come one day to his clinic to get my eyes checked, but that day never came. Now as I contemplate, I know that my Sai was making me meet Dr. Bajaj quite often to warn me of my coming illness, but I failed to get that signal. We are at times so ignorant that we fail to catch the warning signs given by the Masters. I feel Baba was so concerned about my eyesight that finally he had to ‘serve it on a platter’ for me and got this clinic opened next to my house, plus sent an invitation! I thank my Baba from the bottom of my heart for this great blessing and miracle. He is ALWAYS with HIS devotees, helping and guiding them all the time.
When I returned home I went straight to my Mandir and meditated. I did not want to allow the fearful thoughts about losing my eyesight to pollute my inner space. I opened my heart in deep gratitude, thanking Baba, Mahavatar Babaji, Swami Nithyananda, and all other Masters for their divine help. However, since Mohanji is my ‘most immediate’ Guru, who is always there for me, especially in the matters of urgency, I connected with his 3rd eye and then also sent him an e-mail to appease my agitated mind.
The following day, another miracle related to my Glaucoma issue took place.
Before going for the scheduled appointment at the clinic, I was a bit nervous, of course, but then prayed and connected with Mohanji’s 3rd eye sincerely. I could feel a beautiful energy and somehow my fears just vanished! I also read Mohanji’s e-mail reply in which he said: “Indeed Sai arranged it. Do not worry. I will be with you the moment you think about me.”
After a thorough checkup, the doctor looked at me rather shocked and said: “Your left eye, which had the 24% damage, has somehow recovered to only 5%, while the right eye is completely normal!” He couldn’t believe that the percentage of Glaucoma could fluctuate so much in just 24 hours!!!
He had no logical explanation for this and agreed that it was nothing but the divine grace. I was so choked with emotion and love for the divine that I could not control my tears. I immediately called Mohanji to thank him. I know for sure that he indeed was present at the clinic when the test was going on.
I couldn’t wait to share this miraculous experience with my dear Baji who was equally overjoyed – we both agreed, this can be nothing but a divine miracle!
I wanted to share these two small miracles with you to inspire you to walk the path in surrender and gratitude, and know that, once we operate from the inner space of gratitude, the grace of the Masters is always with us.
I am deeply indebted to you for helping me gain insight. This happened on the day Baba instructed you to initiate Prof. Hassan and Deepali to give Shaktipat. I am sharing my experience, along with some background, for the benefit of our friends.
Experience: On 18 Jan 2010, I returned back from work in the afternoon, quite tired (not that I had really worked hard) and after a quick bite went for a nap…. I had a dream in which I saw Mohanji make me stand up straight with his right hand firm under my chin….and then he made a swift and sort of violent swing of his right upper limb in front of my body….I was expanded, my eyelids felt heavy, I was feeling a loss of balance and, in a panic state, I shouted to Deepali for help………and then I woke up vividly remembering the dream.
Background: Moushami, Deepali and myself had a heavenly and blissful time with Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji during the Inner Awakening in Dec 2009. Mohanji has been already spiritually uplifting us and he blessed us prior to our departure. Paramhansa Nithyananda Swamiji’s cleansing made me light of my karmic baggage. I had already been fully convinced with the ‘click’ that had happened to me with Mohanji, that the ‘faith’ and ‘unconditional love’ are way superior to my intellectual conditioning. Mohanji’s assurance, the BTW meditations, and his blessings, changed me a lot. With this background preparation I went to Swamiji – with a strong ‘vitarka’. Before that for nearly 5-6 months Deepali and myself have been having wonderful understandings of spirituality with Sudeep. Prior to that I did learn a lot from Shri Prem Nirmalji about the spiritual path, and he did help resolve most of my intellectual questions. The 49 Healing Breaths and meditation technique he taught helped me to get grounded. I was destined to follow this spiritual path at this age. The satsangs with Mohanji, however, gave me better understanding and the ‘click’ I mentioned before. Since then I have been yearning to be consistently compassionate and just want to surrender to the Masters with full faith. But constantly I have been feeling the blockage at my ‘anahata’. During the energy darshans in the Inner Awakening at Bidadi, I asked Swamiji for blessings to help me out of my personal problems related to my obsessive thought processes/flashes and the unnecessary intellectual arrogance I have developed over years, which prevented me from being able to share pure unconditional love. He assured me personally: “I will take care of you” and also to all the participants in His high energy Shiva state that He will lifelong provide us His ‘abhaya’.
However, since my return, I have been lethargic, tired, unable to carry on the meditations, irritable with family members, etc. I could just manage the chantings and seek Swamiji’s and Mohanji’s blessings.
In a helpless state, one day, I started connecting with Mohanji’s third eye in deep surrender….
Insight: Later in the evening (18 Jan), I shared this dream with Mohanji and he immediately said: “Sanjay, it was not a dream. You have been connecting with my third eye since some days now and hence I came there astrally to help you. You were very resistant and I had to force you. I have taken away a lot more chunk of your karmic baggage”. I later told him the background happenings since return as mentioned above. Mohanji replied “In one of your past lives, your family had forced you into the ‘bhakti’ marg which you were totally against of. The recent ‘Bhakti’ experience with Swamiji has triggered and surfaced the old past life memories. Your present feelings and turmoil are a part of cleansing that Swamiji has done and this sort of experience has been mentioned in spiritual literature”. What a beautiful insight!
I am feeling much, much better now after the astral experience and explanation. I offer my sincere gratitude to you Mohanji for your unconditional love. I am attempting to sincerely ‘feel’ Swamiji and you from the depth of my heart. I must confess that a major part of my brain has still gone into drafting this letter, but I am convinced that someday I (self) will be able to pour my heart out.
This is about the first BTW in Pune and the first BTW after I was initiated into giving Shaktipat…….
22nd Jan 2008 – A17, Vijayashree Towers, Dattawadi, Pune.
Hardly 72 hours have passed since I was initiated into Shaktipat and there I was, landing in Pune on Jan 21st. With Mohanji’s permission, I organized BTW meditation.
Mrs. Vimal and Mr. Shrinivas and my dear and respected mother and father-in-law helped me a lot to get things organized. They have a big photo of Sai Baba and Akkalkot Swami. We kept those in the drawing room. With beautiful ethnic looking lamp and incense stick our decorum was ready.
I had invited 2 of my friends whom I knew are deep devotees of Baba- Mr. Ramdas and Mr. Sudhir. We were total 8 people- my in laws, my son Mohanish and nephew Aditya, and my sister in law Neeta.
I had given the time of 7.30pm and had informed that to Mohanji. I had constant anxiety about how would I know when should I start giving shaktipaat and where to give!!!! How would I know he is present!! He said that, “Deepali, you will be completely guided”. I had deep trust that I will be; I was lost on how. He asked me to send sms before we start but I did not send…………..
One person was late but, sharp at 7.30pm my third eye and Sahasrara told me that Mohanji has arrived. I became a bit restless as I wanted to start on time. We started at 7.40pm without waiting for that person. After initial ‘Aum’ makar and breathing, I started the CD. The whole atmosphere changed drastically. Mohanji indicated telepathically very clearly about Shaktipaat…. when and where…… all was taken were. …. beautifully and methodically. …… no more anxiety.
After meditation……….. all shared that it was wonderful, it was different. All had lost the sense of time and space the moment CD was started. Everyone gave different versions of when that last person came……… ha… ha.. !!!
Mr. Ramdas 60 year old, real simple person said that he never thought he would sit at one place for such a long time. He said probably this is happening for the first time in his life. He felt tremendous energy surge during shaktipaat. He was so overwhelmed that for 1 hr after the meditation, he was sharing his life experiences with Baba… the way Baba helped him, saved him.
Mr. Sudhir, paint technologist, said that he never experienced such peaceful sitting before. There were disturbances around but nothing disturbed him. He said, it was for the first time he experienced deep silence. He also said that thoughts reduced drastically after Shaktipat…. I felt it was very good understanding.
My father-in-law who has read extensively about spirituality and vedic sciences said that he straight went into no thought zone. I noticed that he did not even raise his right hand for blessing. Rare indeed….
My mother-in-law who is always so deeply involved in pooja, was also not sure of sitting quietly for long time because of her join problems and cough. She stated that she had wonderful experience of silence and happiness. She actually wanted to laugh. She said “I had told Baba to take care of me and let me be able to sit for long time.” And she actually did. She changed posture once but she did not realize that! She was coughing a lot. I made her drink water in between, but she has vague memories of that!
Neeta said that she was in a double mind of whether to come. Will I be able to sit? But she said that she did not realize the time. The most important thing she conveyed that was, “Deepali, I felt so safe when you were giving Shaktipat. I have never felt so before!”
Aditya felt big energy travelling down from crown chakra….. the experience he never had before. He felt so much relaxed and rejuvenated. He was bubbling in joy for a long time.
Mohanish said he was enveloped in the capsule of white light after the first Shaktipat. He experienced energy running everywhere in the body. He also had few muscle twitches and some of them were painful. Everyone enjoyed the meditation and Shaktipat, the concept which was so new to all of them. That only strengthened their faith in Baba.
All felt lucky to have this meditation. I sincerely want to express my deep gratitude towards my Mother and Father-in-law, Mummy and Papa. They sweetly accepted my new role and helped me not only to organize but also encouraged me to progress. I am deeply indebted to them and indeed lucky daughter-in-law.
This was my first meditation to be conducted ever in life. I thank all those who attended because they came out of total faith on Baba. I had just said…. I am conducting Baba’s meditation. Can you come? What a simplicity.
Dear Mohanji, it was a wonderful experience conducting the meditation. Hope I was able to pick up your suggestions and have done it correctly.
One sincere request, I need your photo nice and charged with energy. People want to see you also. Sorry for the long mail…. It is a story of the first achievement.
I just read Mohanji’s latest Shirdi Sai blog post and can’t get my mind off of all the stories/experiences of the unfathomable ways in which He brings us back into his loving fold through lifetimes.
Yesterday evening’s BTW was fully Shirdi Baba – the intensity of his presence was unmistakable, and so was the love he bathed us with.
Determined to make one healthy pumpkin snack for our BTWers, I lost the track of time – it was only when the door bell rang that I realized it was already time to start BTW. I ran up the stairs to call Mohanji. At a first glance of him I thought he was sleeping, but the moment he looked at me, I knew for sure that he was in a highly expanded state – his eyes were like two piercing lasers and gave me goose bumps. They were somehow too intense to bear. Heat was emanating from his body and could be felt clearly from one meter away. He told me: “Tonight Shirdi Sai will be present in a big way! You’ll see”.
Many people were already awaiting Mohanji in the meditation room and some could not even fit in. We started right away. I was the first to receive Shaktipat – this time the warm energy that emanated from Mohanji’s palms and fingertips could be felt instantly, and the energy ‘pull’ that came with this warmth was that of pure love and sheer power which instills confidence and safety. It made me ‘drunk’. For some time I completely lost the track of time and sense of body – I felt like one big chewing gum, stretching in all the directions. Then I felt a prompting to stand up and start the Shaktipat – I stood for a while to balance myself by focusing my inner gaze onto Mohanji’s third eye. Shaktipat just flowed – endless waves of blissful warm energy gushed through my spine, manifesting in the outer world as warm energy in the palms and fingertips.
The experience was captivating and none tried to verbalize it – Dr. Deepa just said that it was unlike anything she experienced before: “This time I really felt it!” Then something interesting happened – Q&A and Satsang just started, but most of the people present said they had to leave early as they had other engagements for the evening. In no time, they all vanished (as if someone kicked them out), except three of them. I was a bit perplexed as this never happened before – I knew it was not a coincidence. I was still feeling Baba’s presence and a suddenly quiet room felt cozy. For the next 2-3 hours, four of us enjoyed the most wonderful, intimate Satsang with Mohanji, a heartfelt sharing about Shirdi Baba, mystical experiences, love – it was all flowing through Mohanji and we soaked into it fully. From deep within, sweet memories from my life in Shirdi were flashing into my conscious mind. I felt very open and beautifully vulnerable – I could feel that my heart chakra was expanding and top of the head vibrating. As the evening was progressing, it became evident to me that those who stayed were honored by Baba, i.e. that this atmosphere of intimate sharing of experiences was created for them so that they could be reminded of their connection with Him by realizing it themselves. As Mohanji said in the blog post about Shirdi Sai: “A master should be internally felt and absorbed, not heard or seen.”
One of the three, who is currently ‘at the crossroads’, facing a few tough challenges of life, received Sri Sai Satcharitra as a special gift from Mohanji ( i.e. from Baba through Mohanji).
The special nature of this LIVING book, and immense blessings/protection of Baba that comes to all those who read it, was explained through Mohanji’s vivid description of his first experience with Sri Sai Satcharitra (which, I feel, is his to share if he wishes to). Stories of how Baba places us into most unexpected life situations and imparts knowledge through experiences awoke in us a childlike sense of wonder and excitement about life – there comes a point when one realizes that yes, it is truly so – faith and surrender is all we need to master the game of life and qualify for the highest…
Thanks a lot for a lovely experience. We had a great evening meditation on 16th with your divine presence.
Mohanji, when I met to you in the morning on Friday, I was not clear whether I am going to be there for the evening meditation or not as I had to take my family for a birthday party. Not only me, even Manoj, Rashmi & Dhanraj all 4 of us did not plan to come at all. We all had different excuses not to attend the meditation. My mind was telling “You already met Mohanji and why do you want to go again.” But your energies pulled all of us so much that we could not escape. Thanks a lot for your loving guidance. I believe in a Guru who will not allow the student to ignore or escape. Even if the student wants to escape, it is not possible for the student as Guru’s loving energies overtake our ignorance. Thanks a lot for your unconditional love towards all of us.
Mohanji, during the mediation your love was just flowing out. Throughout the session you looked like Jesus Christ. I could not turn my attention from your glowing face with Jesus’s love. I was in total bliss and full of gratitude while immersed in those energies. During the meditation, as I was following the instructions, all of sudden I connected to your 3rd eye and immediately your 3rd eye became like a big light, like a shining Sun. My soul just entered into your 3rd eye, into that glowing light. The moment I entered I do not know where to go. Some voice told me to run into the light. There I saw a big statue of Siva and Shakti in the form of bright golden light. It’s so big that it covers one entire planet.
Then suddenly Shirdi Baba came and gave me Shaktipat. After the Shaktipat they showed me the way to go down. And there I was in the group of souls. There were many souls in different colors. Each group with a different color identified as a plane they exists and each plane has its own level of consciousness. I was in the golden color group and also I saw there were many other people (millions of souls). There I saw Mahavishnu with lots of Masters. All the Masters looked like Vishnu itself, as if Vishnu multiplied into many forms. All the Masters were talking to each and every soul and guiding them into the next level of existence. As per the Masters, it is the level of love we have that decides our next plane of existence. There are more than 13 planes of existence and each plane has got some billions of planets. After the Masters’ interview I was sent to a different plane where Brahma manifests our soul into the body. In each of these processes they do lots of cleansing, depending on the level of understanding we have towards unconditional love and the gratitude we have towards the Creator. I do not know what is the meaning of the above experience. But I enjoyed the whole session and I was totally in bliss.
During the whole process you were with me and guiding me with love.
Mohanji, my limited mind does not know how to express the gratitude to you for the guidance you are giving to all of us. We are very fortunate to have a great Master like you in our midst. I feel all our prayers are answered through you.
My heartiest pranaams to all of you reading this sharing, to all the volunteers of ACT, Mohanji, all the Masters, the omnipresent One…
14th of January was a very special day for me – while all my friends in my home country (Serbia) celebrated the New Year, I too was celebrating, but in a much more rewarding way. It was one of those ‘divine coincidences’ that our date of blanket distribution was fixed for exactly that day (the Sonarpur School was shut a day before, when we initially planned to conduct this event).
Furthermore, while on my way to Sonarpur School (outskirts of Kolkata) I found out from Meenakshi that Jan 14th is the Hindu New Year as well! All of us were so excited realizing that we are starting New Year with such a nice act as ACT KOLKATA’s Blanket Distribution.
Meenakshi’s mother, who was visiting her from Delhi, joined us as well, along with our enthusiastic volunteers from ITC Sonar – Snigdha, Mr. Haldar & Javed. I must mention that from the day one we have been receiving great support from ITC Sonar. Mr. Sisir Acharya has done a great job with all the procurement issues.
From the moment we reached the school everything was happening so smoothly. Kids were already waiting for us and very soon we had all our donations (blankets, notepads and pencil boxes) nicely arranged for the distribution – all the children were sitting in front of us so humble and well behaved. The age group of children at this school is 5-20 years. They have a church as well where they have children from 1 – 3 years old. The school has 81 children and church has 25 children. In total, there were 106 children to whom we distributed the blankets and basic school stationary.Such poor surrounding and so much of love and care in the air – the reason for that is that school is free of cost for all 106 kids, run by limited funds of Dhankehet Manovikas Kendra, which sponsors books and uniforms for children and salaries for 5 teachers. Out of the total 106 children, 23 are with special needs and 25 crèche children – all were overjoyed with our presence and with the gifts. One of the teachers was deeply touched by our help and told us that the last time school has received ANY help was some 3-4 years back when blankets were donated. They couldn’t express all their happiness and gratitude for having us with them.
Before we started our distribution, kids and their teachers have gifted us a nice performance –they sang 2 songs in English for us. It was so lovely. Hearts of all the volunteers melted… After that, each and every child has left signature on a chart paper which we hanged on a wall low enough that even 3-year-old ones could reach it. Little ones who can’t write as yet scrambled something with love (photos will tell this story more vividly). Later on teachers and volunteers signed as well.
This is going to be our New Year’s gift to Mohanji and Ammucare. No artist can create an art peace such as this wall of gratitude and love. One of the teachers wrote in her cute beginner’s English: “We are so happy for Ammuchare Charity Trust”. Two others wrote: “Happy New Year”, so overjoyed for having us with them.
We took a quick round of the school and became speechless.
Photo images will tell you all about the classrooms and overall conditions in which these children study. However, nothing stops them from smiling and singing… nothing should stop us from doing the same… Moreover, nothing should stop us from increasing their happiness and helping them as much as we can.
Thanking once again all the volunteers of ACT Kolkata, I look forward to many more nice initiatives like this one…
I entered Jenny’s office and was greeted by a spirited group of dhyanis. I had prayed all the way and sensed that there was something special awaiting us today. The weather was fabulous after the rains. The breeze reminded me of Bangalore days. As soon as I sat down in my asana, I felt a strong surge within that connected me with the divine mother, maha vidyas, yoginis, ascended masters. Normally I do conduct breathing routines before power of purity meditation cd is run. But the space was so charged that everyone became so still just by hearing my chants. I have experimented that shakti moves us and stills us when required. Mother Bagalamukhi puts us into a state of stambhana (temporary paralysis). I prayed to divine mother and everyone should experience this state as the divine chants raised the intense tejas, and vayus powerfully along the spine.
I felt the gush of sparks and currents as kundalini rose powerfully to merge with her consort Lord Shiva at sahasrara padma and then the energies rose further and began to dance above my crown. The lasya of shakti and tandava of shiva is the most powerful dance of energies before the ‘ultimate union’ and beyond all words. The light and heat that emanates is so intense and surprisingly very calming within. I would have loved to remain there forever. But the role of relaying shaktipath from Mohanji yanked me out of my sitting position.
I was in Rudra avasta, my hands were steely hard and the power surging out was very focussed and intense. I am always connected with Mohanji and the experience of relaying shakti is simply amazing. I have to admit there is a beautiful experience in receiving and relaying. In my previous posts I have shared how amazing it is to receive shaktipath. Sharing such experiences challenges our ability to articulate. The best feeling is always reserved at the end of meditation when I see the bliss and gratitude on the faces of people around. The whole space is teeming with energy, no one wants to utter a word as they are basking in that sacred space that is so expanded, calm and beyond any definition.
I did ask one gentleman in the group, how he felt. He just stepped forward and gave me a tight hug to thank me profusely. I would like him to send his experiences soon.
Prashanth shared that he never felt so still before. He was pleasantly surprised and happy with his immense progress in his state of mind during meditation.
BTW meditations have shifted gears and a true testimony of it will be when we hear from all of us. So I request all of you who have attended the meditation to share their experiences.
Last Friday’s BTW had a very special flavor – our BTW Muscat Centre already feels like home and the loving vibes made everyone feel welcome. The group energy was already wonderful when we started the preparatory breathing/chanting. Amazing flow, intense energy abundant with cleansing heat, powerful presence of Masters, and a beautiful Satsang afterwards, made this evening truly memorable.
While performing Shaktipat I clearly felt the intense presence of Baba and, at times, Mahavatar Babaji (through the lovingly captivating heat in the spine), as well as Paramahamsa Nithyananda (through the heat in Ananda Gandha). This time I was aware of their presence and felt so incredibly honored to be in a position to be the instrument of Shaktipat, THEIR instrument. It indeed is a dream coming true… During Shaktipat I felt that several people were NOT THERE at all, a strange feeling as if they are resting on the bottom of the ocean and I am reaching only a small part of them floating on the surface. During Shaktipat to Asawari’s parents, in an instant I had the most beautiful vision of two of them ASCENDING into the light. They looked so peaceful and beautiful, and were kind of cool about it, as if they knew all along this would happen. 2012, here we come! I rarely get to see an elderly couple so at home with meditation and radiating so much peace – I just felt so happy for them.
When the meditation was over, the intensity of energy continued. Mohanji did not ask for experience sharing this time, as if he could not hold back the flow of knowledge outpouring through him at that time. It was beautiful, with his ‘trademark clarity’ and the ‘umph’ of Shaivic expression.
At the same time, little Moushami, our youngest meditator, was so sweet in assisting me with cutting and distributing the fruits offered as prasad, biscuits and green tea, which we both joyously accepted to be our ‘Dharma’ at the given time
(as per Mohanji’s instructions, we are no longer serving any heavy food after BTW, only fruits and something very light) It was so sweet to observe all present still in the sweet trance of intense energy, absorbing the wisdom flow, and enjoying the fruits and tea. A fire place next to us and snow blizzard outside would have been a real icing on the cake.
This time Mohanji’s words were recorded, so I’ll share with you a few poignant points/excerpts which left a deep impression:
– “Increasing the awareness is nowadays sold so much in the world that people don’t know how to do it. The BEST and SUREST way of increasing the awareness is to FEEL, to start with the basics, just like small children. Feeling the ground, feeling the air, feeling a flower, feeling your clothes – feel, feel, feel! And then the awareness grows. But actually, what happens is – as children we all used to feel, but then we got conditioned. This dimension is then taken for granted – the automatic sensitiveness leaves and conditioning enters. So, if we have to increase our awareness, we have to increase our capacity to feel” (In the recent blog post “Great Masters – Shirdi Sai Baba”), Mohanji explained this point in more detail).
– “Shaktipat is a software change. It channelizes energy directly and changes your current set up into something else, something that helps you on your current journey. So, each person gets exactly what that person needs. There will not be one inch more or one inch less. And then the effect will be seen in the days to come. The experience of your life will change – situation may be the same, but your response will be different. Your equanimity will increase and others will respect you more.”
– “When you keep your hand in a blessing position, energy is partially recycled within you and partially it is going out. So, you are blessing others and also cleansing yourself, which is what this meditation is all about – full purification, like taking a bath internally. You will feel the difference happening, that freshness, vibration, in the days to come. And the third eye Shaktipat, once I do it, the whole life time you are connected to me, i.e. the moment you connect to my eyes, you will feel the vibration. Then you will know that I am working on you, i.e. that I’m connected. You will receive guidance, get thoughts/answers which are distinct, and you will know “This is not my thought”. For this to be experienced, FAITH is essential. When faith is there, automatically your subconscious will connect with the closest reliable source that is available. That is automatic. Maybe conscious mind will want Mahavatar Babaji as your Guru, but you will automatically connect to a Guru from whom you can receive, as per your eligibility. So just be grateful and continue increasing your eligibility.”
– “When you perform to your ultimate in an organization, even if the Management cannot see you, others will see you – because a performer is always valued in the world. So, the best way to beat the Tamas (lethargy, procrastination) is to be fully focused and thus increase your capacity to perform. If the intellect is working, not emotion, your work will be valued. However, what we see happening normally is the complaint “Oh, I am working so much and nobody is noticing”. You can see people working till late at night and thinking “Why is my boss not noticing me?” – but he would be doing only a routine, clerical job, there would be no brain in it, no innovation and no real confidence. Then, the self esteem goes and that person feels that he does not have the capacity for another job. In that way, people spend many years in one company but never grow. Therefore, avoid this ‘frog syndrome’ as much as you can, because the water sometimes becomes too hot, but you lose your ability to jump out. If you are experiencing stagnation for a longer time, do not ignore it.”
A dear friend from work, Gitanjali, who attended BTW for the first time with her Mom, was glowing while bidding goodbye to me – she was supposed to hurry to a wedding party after the meditation, but said that now the party lost its allure completely. She said that she was still in a trance-like state, blissed out.
I spoke to her two days later, and she said she still felt that beautiful ‘trance’ effect and that some drastic changes happened at work – two long pending problems were resolved and everything became much more positive. I was so happy to see that she experienced the magic of BTW during the very first session.
And finally, here’s a wonderful experience shared by Dr. Deepali, one of the few whom I felt were ‘at the bottom of the ocean’ during Shaktipat.
Love to all,
Dr. Deepali’s experience
“Meditation on Friday 8th Jan 2010 was unique for me. As we started Om chanting and initial cleansing breathing exercises, I got lost. My body did not exist. It was dissolved. I remember the beginning of instructions on the CD. But frankly speaking, I lost the track of CD. I was in a different world.
When Shaktipat was given on the Third eye, I felt that the frontal bone is soft and finger is smoothly going inside. It sort of lit up all meridians. I was into deep silence. I saw Paramhamsa Nityananda, Mohanji and Sai Baba standing in front of me in this order with Mohanji in the middle. Slowly the trio merged together, formed a flame and went through my third eye. Beautiful indeed!
Whenever I saw Mohanji during this deep meditation, I saw him in his real form. I would NOT like to describe his real form for a reason…. someone may get biased about the form and may start creating mental construct of the image. And, mental construct is a trap in spirituality and prevents us from going into deep meditation.
Later, I saw myself sitting next to Sai Baba on a wooden bench, under the famous neem tree in Shirdi. Baba was explaining and giving some guidance to me. I was listening to each word intensely. However, mystically, words were absent. After some time, Baba moved his hand on my back with the mixed gestures of reassurance, comfort and best wishes. This experience was very deep and touching and I just wanted to bow down to Mohanji. Then I realized… Biba is saying, slowly open your eyes. With great difficulty and odd gait, I fell on Mohanji’s feet. Surprisingly, he moved his hand on my back exactly in the same way as Baba moved! I went back to my place and was in deep silence again.
The understanding Mohanji gave on this experience is that, 3 masters forming a flame indicated that all masters are the same… the only Shaivic energy. That flame going through the third eye probably cleansed some deep samskaras. Absence of words may also mean that, I am still not ready to receive the message! Mohanji, deep gratitude to you and all the Masters for this experience and understanding.
What I would like to convey to readers……. when we expect something, we get only that during meditation. It keeps you away from getting what Masters want to give you. It sort of blocks their energy. It is better to receive and accept what comes.
Second thing, I always wondered why to write an experience even though Mohanji repeatedly insisted to own up the experience. I thought reading others’ experiences generates bias in you. But now, I feel, owning the experience gives you more clarity of what you experienced. One may hold on to experience if it is not shared. Holding on to anything is against spirituality. Sharing helps you to transcend that phase and progress. Mohanji are my both understandings appropriate? It would be nice if you could write on this.
Last evening’s Bless The World meditation was such an intense, pure, intimate experience with my inner self, that it is difficult to express the same in words.
I would like to thank Jennifer for making her office available and ready with all arrangements in spite of her physical absence due to ill health. But I could sense her presence at the beginning as well as at the end of the meditation. She was seated right in front (not her usual place) wearing a white kurta and a black shawl, and turned back to acknowledge us all with her bright smiling face.
Pradeep’s pre-meditation warm up of our senses took me to the innermost recesses of my being, where I lost myself completely. Even after the actual meditation began, I was still traveling somewhere in space until the time when his hands touched my Sahasrara. The Shaktipat seemed to go on forever, and when he energized my third eye, a gigantic figure of Mohanji stood before me, pressing deeply upon my third eye
and I felt myself melting completely inside his huge frame.
Thereafter I do not recollect much of the meditation as I thought I was dreaming until I felt hot and warm and heard Mohanji’s voice, bringing me back to the room.
I thank Mohanji and all the Masters for their presence and their blessings that see us through the week.
