Dubai, June 25th, 2010
It’s been a long time since Mohanji and I came to Dubai together – to me, it felt like a year at least. As a matter of fact, I felt as if I went through a time machine of a sort and suddenly found myself with the same loving friends from the past. 🙂
Since Mohanji was to conduct two meditations in two days, I knew that a hectic schedule awaited us – but when love is there, all is enjoyed…
After a relaxing morning with our Dubai hosts -Shernaz and family, we all went together to Aiyappanji’s apartment in Deira to attend Sai Baba’s Noon Arati. Mohanji knew that Solenki Maharaj, Chief Priest of Shirdi, is in Dubai and will be doing the Arati himself. He insisted that Mohanji comes as well. This was a great joy and great honor – whenever we visited Shirdi, we experienced many loving leelas of Baba through his beautiful instrument, the humble Solenki Maharaj. I was so happy to see him again.
The bhajans and Arati were very beautiful, but when Solenki Maharaj entered, I felt a sudden shift in energy. Tears suddenly came for no reason. And then he led the most amazing Arati – starting with Shirdi Sai’s and finishing with Sathya Sai’s Arati. The place was rocking! I felt goose bumps all over my body – it was as if energy was exploding all around me. So much joy, so much love… What a great experience! And the casual conversation with Solenki Maharaj afterwards was so intimately divine – his innocence always touches my heart…
The sincerity and purity of Aiyappanji impressed me as well. He has devoted his entire apartment to Baba – his selflessness is amazing. Mohanji and him know each other for many years and were recalling how Baba initially connected them (and so many other people) in His unique ways. I tried saying ‘thank you’ to Ayappenji for the lovely lunch, but he was smiling telling me that it’s not allowed. So sweet.
After all the high energy experiences, we were pretty much ready for the BTW scheduled to take place at Dr. Manjari’s and Devang’s apartment in Bur Dubai. We came a bit early because a few people wanted private consultation with Mohanji. The moment we all rejoiced in was when Dr. Manjari, a few minutes after our arrival, brought little Kavya into the room and handed her over into Mohanji’s arms.
The familiar stare happened again – she was clearly glued to the brightness of Mohanji’s third eye and looked so beautifully dazed. The same thing happened when she first met Mohanji a few months ago.
Later on in the evening, Manjari brought Kavya again, and, sure enough, the stare without blinking was on from the moment she came near to Mohanji.
He kept smiling and saying ‘She is connecting with my third eye’. I was so amazed to witness these divine events at the soul level, in bodies that are so different in size :-). They had their own communication and Mohanji told me later on that he was amazed how she looked straight into his third eye – babies usually don’t do that… 🙂 He said that, soul-wise, their age is almost similar…
Before we knew it, the room that initially looked so big and empty, was now jam-packed with people – I didn’t know whom to greet and hug first – my cheeks were aching from constant smiling 🙂 It was so nice to meet my dear, dear friends again, to share the joy of BTW experience, to bask in that energy…
Since there were altogether 6 of us initiated into Shaktipat present, I knew that, regardless of the number of people, Shaktipat won’t be a problem. Since I could take my time with each individual, I went very deep with the experience of giving Shaktipat and felt it was so amazingly intense. I could even feel their heart beat!
After meditation was over, I reqested all present to keep their eyes closed – we played a beautiful Arati from Siddha Yoga tradition (Bhagawan Nithyananda of Ganeshpuri) sang by Gurumayi. It arrives from the space of pure bhakti and really touches the heart. As one person said, it “boosted the taste of nectar that was already experienced during BTW – a great experience…”
Indeed, this Arati was experienced so deeply because that is our path – Siddha path of non-doing, path of perfect surrender, shraddha and saburi… Bade Baba (Bhagawan Nithyananda of Ganeshpuri) was very similar to Shirdi Baba – a great Siddha and avadhoota (Mohanji’s connection with Bade Baba was explained in detail in the ‘Ganeshpuri trip’ post on this blog).
After meditation and Arati, Mohanji cemented the bliss of the evening with a truly amazing Q&A – his words were like arrows. I will not even try to summarize it – the transcription of the entire Q&A will be posted soon. All I can say is that IT ROCKED! (later on in the evening Mohanji told me that he received a telepathic message from Shirdi Sai Baba who said: “So? Meditation ROCKED!” – Mohanji and I laughed endlessly about it – our amazing Baba, so full of surprizes, so overflowing with love…)
At one point during Q&A, Mohanji invited our guest and sincere Shirdi Sai devotee, Professor Muralidhar, to explain more about his gigantic Seva task of setting up a Shirdi Sai Baba temple at Bellary in India. Since he was on visit to Dubai, seeking funds for the temple construction, it was through the Grace of Baba and his instruments (Manoaj, Pradeep) that he joined us for meditation. He spoke about his TANGIBLE inner experiences with Shirdi Sai Baba and how he mustered the courage to assume responsibility for this huge project with zero funds. His sincerity was touching.
Later on I found out that during the 2 days in Dubai, he managed to collect the amazing amout of AED 16,000 – the EXACT amount that was required at this point. That is the grace of Baba… – he always makes sure we know who is running the show and what all can be done when we surrender…
I am still receiving e-mails about the TANGIBLE experiences from BTW. As is always the case with Shaktipat from Mohanji, all had their own experience and received that what was required…
One person said that, during BTW, he could clearly see the light gushing out of Mohanji’s Agnya chakra in three different colors. That light had a special effect on him. Lilly said that she could clearly see gentle green light emanating from Mohanji and healing all present at all the levels – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. She experienced the effect of that healing.
Here are a few more testimonials:
“After Shaktipat from Mohanji, I couldn’t sleep properly at night. My eyes were burning for the last 2 days. Although today the burning of eyes stopped, sensation at third eye and Sahasrara is still there. Thank you once again.”
“I felt our strong connection becoming even more intense. My heart is just overflowing with love. My onus, I realized, is to accept everyone at their own level, without judgement. I felt this intensely in BTW. Now I feel the heart unbridled and there is a big shift within me.”
“It’s lovely to sit with Mohanji. The energy just shoots up and dances within. It’s sheer ecstasy to soak in the uprising energy and spread it around.”
In all the excitement, I forgot to announce the Grand Cross meditation which was to happen the next evening. Later on I understood why this slipped my mind – the turnout was so big that people could not fit into the venue. Another confirmation that I am not the doer and all, indeed, happens for a reason.
Account of the Grand Cross Meditation follows soon.
With love that rocks :-),
