A Guru Poornima to Remember!

July 25th, 2010 – Muscat, Oman  

The Glow of Ultimate Surrender


Dear friends,  

Thank you for the beautiful Guru Poornima messages through e-mails and sms-es. Mohanji received many messages and phone calls on that most auspicious day when we express our gratitude to the Masters/Gurus who contributed to our growth. He has been bed-ridden for almost a week due to a very bad sprain of lower back, which made him quite immobile for almost a week (this even prevented him from writing the Part 3 blog on Babaji).  

Radiating Energy At All Circumstances


This surely was a unique, truly memorable Guru Poornima.  

I feel grateful for the easy-flowing lifestyle of Muscat that allowed for a smaller, cosy gathering yesterday evening – a few of us present thus had the most intimate experience of various Masters, especially the Great Shirdi Sai……   

With the help of Jaju family, our altar looked very nice, with pictures of all the dear Masters beautifully decorated with flowers and candles – we were set to start at 6.30pm as planned. For the first time since Mohanji had this sprain (divine timing!), Mohanji managed to walk down the stairs to grace our humble Guru Poornima program, consisted of Sathya Sai & Shirdi Sai Arati, meditation, and Arati to Bade Baba (Bhagawan Nithyananda).  

Just before Mohanji joined us, I was noticing the changes on his face – there was a visible presence of Jesus… It was only then that I realized that I forgot to add my favorite icon of Jesus Christ to our Guru Poornima altar – what a beautiful, unique reminder…  

When we reached the point of singing the Shirdi Sai Arati, the heat within us was building up drastically. As the Arati went on, Mohanji was instructing us when to do what,  he was throwing flowers on us as individual blessings, and Dr. Deepali said that she was amazed to see Mohanji singing the Arati in PERFECT MARATHI.  

Divine Collaboration of Flames and Energy


That Arati, indeed, felt so beautiful and sacred. All the candle lights became tall (almost  3 times the usual height of the regular candle flame) and had the most beautiful golden glow. Every one sensed the presence of the Divine Masters…  

The time came for our Power of Purity meditation. Energy was already so high that we needed no breathwork preparation. Giving Shaktipat in that energy was a truly sacred experience…..  

After I gave Shaktipat to all the people and was returning to my seat, Mohanji signaled lovingly that I should come to him (he was still sitting on the edge of the sofa, as his lower back pain did not permit him to get up to do Shaktipat). And what a Shaktipat I received from him at that moment! It was so different, with most beautiful Fatherly love…  

The most loving, Shirdi Sai...


The heat of his palm filled me up completely. His palm was connecting between my Agnya and Sahasrara chakras, reaching both the chakras!!! – it was so expanded, i.e. much larger than the normal size of his palm, which I am familiar with. And my head fitted into that warm palm so comfortably, so perfectly – there was a sensation of being completely embraced and protected by the Father. The intensity of Love I felt was indescribable. I knew instantly that it was Shirdi Sai!!!… After the Shaktipat, I hugged him/Mohanji and rested my head on his lap in full surrender, as he patted my Anahata from the back – it was the most beautiful, melting, Divine sensation…  

Shaktipat to Dr. Deepali after Bade Baba Arati


Bade Baba’s Arati after the meditation was special as well – Shirdi Sai idol, and Bade Baba’s photo were placed on the sofa next to Mohanji, and we did Arati on all three. All of us witnessed Mohanji entering into a trance state. At that point, the energy in my head was nearing the bursting point – all kinds of energy sensations were taking place within my system. I tried taking photos, but managed only a few-the pull to go within was too strong.  

Arathi lights and the magnetic pull of his Thejus...


Right after the Arati, Mohanji uttered some important messages and got up to leave the room and take rest – I was actually surprised to see him sitting throughout all the Aratis and meditation, because for the last few days, he was not able to stand or sit longer than half a minute due to acute lower back pain. Dr. Sanjay and Dr. Deepali assisted him in walking towards the stairs, but he denied any assistance and walked on his own – at that moment all of us recognized instantly the walk of Shirdi Sai… It was so touching to see that – one of those moments when our mind finally registers what our heart has been telling us all along…  

Indeed, for quite some time, Baba was there with us, through Mohanji (overtook his body completely), spoke with us, ate prasad that Dr. Deepali made, spoke precious words of advice to each one of us….oh, so divine, unforgettable…  

We simply didn’t know how to express our gratitude and love – Dr. Sanjay and I were massaging the feet of Mohanji/Baba, Dr. Deepali massaged the hand and offered the prasad she made (Dr. Deepali describes the experience beautifully: “He called, “Deepali, where is your Prasad? Get it for me.” Moushami quickly ran and got Prasad in a bowl -it was made up of dalia (broken wheat) and jaggery (gud). Mohanji, i.e. Baba, started eating Prasad and said, “How can I not have this Prasad. It is made with full bhakti. It is so delicious.” I could not control my tears. He then said: “Now you know who I am.” He ate Prasad till he finished the last grain of it! Later, when we were chatting, I realised, Baba ate the Prasad that I made. He ate nothing else. Did not even ask for a glass of water. Satisfaction ran through each cell of my body. Each cell expressed gratitude to its fullest”).  

In that intense energy, we could not talk and were at the edge of tears all the time. While Dr. Deepali suddenly broke into tears during the scene with Prasad, Baba’s expression, visible on Mohanji’s face, was that of complete dispassion, and yet deep Love. As always, his words were crisp but reaching the heart like arrows…   

At one point Dr. Deepali commented: “And Mohanji, I was amazed, you sang that Shirdi Arati in pefect Marathi” – the response was a smile and reply: “I was singing my own Arati.”  

Om Sai, Sri Sai, Jai Jai Sai!


After the most intimate 30 min. or so with Baba (through Mohanji), we felt it was time to leave him alone to rest, and went downstairs. When I visited Mohanji after some time to ask about the dinner, Baba was already gone and Mohanji agreed to have us upstairs with him again, and to have the dinner.  

We discussed all the experiences with great joy, our hearts overflowing – we felt so indescribably blessed – can Guru Poornima get any better than that…  

And finally, I would like to share with you the transcription of Guru Poornima message given through Mohanji after the Aratis:  

“We began our journey in the complete consciousness of Shiva. We started our life as Shiva with full consciousness and full awareness. We were pure when individual soul became separate, from the Omnipresence, from the Parabramha. We were complete. And we were aware that we were complete. Even now we are complete. But we are not aware. This is the difference. So when we came out of Parabramha as an individual soul, started our journey, we were pure and we were complete. We had the full consciousness of our Father. That is where we started.  

Just like a drop coming out of the cloud, when it forms out of the cloud, it is pure. When it starts falling on the way to reach the earth, it starts accumulating so much of dirt from the atmosphere. When it touches the earth. It gets contaminated again. Contamination continues until it reaches the ocean. When it reaches the ocean, it becomes a part of the ocean. It loses its identity.  

Like that, when we started from the cloud, we were pure spirits, fully conscious of our Father and our stature. Then the contamination started. We flow through many lives till we reach the ocean. The Father, or Shiva, came back as Gurus or Acharyas to guide us; to divert us from calamities towards purity. We listened to some, we did not listen to some, because we had too many mental blocks. We had too many conditionings. As we were falling down from the cloud, all that we accumulated was stored as conditionings and we got contaminated. Conditioning and contamination!  

We started looking at individuals as different from the Father while everybody is part of the Father. There is no gender; there is no time or space. Everything is Father. Everything is Allah. There is nothing else apart from Allah. When we started moving, we started accumulating all dirt. We lost our identity. We got deluded. What we are trying to do is remove the delusion at least to some extent and go back to the Father. Become one with Allah. How can we do that?  

… .. Only by cultivating non-violence in thought, word and action;  

… .. By making non-violence a part of our life;  

… ..By becoming pure  

How do we become pure?  

… ..By deliberately, becoming pure in thought, word and action.  

We become complete by removing all the himsa and violence from mind, thought, word and action. Slowly, we lose all our contamination. By the time we merge with the Parabramha, the Father, or the ocean, we would be pure. Only when we become pure, we can reach there. Otherwise we get stuck in the pathway.  

All the water flowing in the river does not reach the ocean. Contamination of water happens on the way. Diversions and detours happen. So, like that! If our aim is to reach the ocean, purity is the only way. Fluidity is the only way. We have to keep being flexible; we have to keep flowing. We have to tide through the situations. We have to look at everything as a part of the existence. Non-resistance and flexibility of movements is life. So keep flowing.  

Gurus will come and go. Shapes have no value. Many shapes have come to talk to people. Whenever there is a demand, shape has been given, the shape has been taken. Form has been made.  

If someone says this is the right path, it could be the right path for some people; another path is right for some other people. Third path is right for another set of people. All paths are right. All paths lead to Allah, Parabramha or Father. Everything goes to him. Everything has come out of him. There is nothing to separate. This is the existence.  

All are Buddhas. All have the same quality. All have same powers. It does not matter if it is a man, woman or cow or a goat. Soul is the same. Soul is the same in a small child and an old man. Operating system is different. Machine is different, electricity is the same.  

I bless all of you and wish you happiness, joy and peace. Use this life to dissolve because it is high time. It is not worth coming again.”  

May we get established in faith and patience, “Shraddha and Saburi” and exist in full Surrender to the Masters and Existence….  

With deep gratitude and surrender,  


The Secrets of Feminine – by Dr. Deepa

I have not been able to attend BTW meditation for quite some time as my husband and I were busy in the wind of activity. Few days back, I decided to join Dr. Deepali for the first ‘Power of Purity’ meditation in Hindi conducted at her house, in my neighborhood. I also cajoled my daughter to join us as I thought the meditation would help her relax before her SAT exam.

Since lately I have been going through a lot of stressful activities at work, home, and outside – mind was agitated for quite some time and going deep into meditation was thus a challenge.

However, most unexpectedly, something amazing happened at the very end of the meditation –  just before opening the eyes, in just a FRACTION OF A SECOND, I somehow received the following strong message/realization:

Women have to play many roles in life. In spite of being disadvantaged in comparison with men(physical weaknesses, hormonal havocs, multiple responsibilities, often controlled at home and work, living in a ‘man’s world’ etc), as women we can still achieve excellence in our lives. This can be achieved by learning to perform our various daily roles by embodying various characteristics of Divine Feminine represented by the Indian mythological Deities. So this is what suddenly reached my awereness in that fraction of a second;

As a Wife – Be like the Goddess Sita:

Sita serving Rama lovingly

– always giving, sacrificing, loving, graceful, accepting, dignified and tolerant.

As a Mother – Be like Goddess Parvati:

Baby Ganesha in the lap of Mother Parvati

– love your children unconditionally and be a pillar of strength to them in all walks of their lives, always.

As a Student – Be like Goddess Saraswati:

Saraswati – Goddess of Knowledge

– always seeking to learn and gain knowledge and wisdom in your respective fields of interest as knowledge is the power.

As an Earning Member: Be like Goddess Lakshmi-

Goddess Lakshmi

– who is beautiful and graceful, Mother of Wealth and Prosperity. Empower yourself by learning finance, investing and creating wealth for society, family and self. Just like Her picture shows (with gold coins flowing from her hand), enjoy and spend your wealth. Do not hoard your wealth but circulate it. Bless the needy by donating for their welfare.

And to complete the personality of a woman – Be like Goddess Durga:

Durga Mata

– radiant, fearless, patient and independent, seated on a lion representing power, will and determination one needs to overcome the demon of ego.  Her many hands and many weapons have been gifted by various Gods.

God has blessed you with many talents use them to achieve the goals you have set for yourself. You can be multitasked – develop this skill to achieve what ever you wish for professionally, or at home. She is with you.

Be like Goddess Kali Chandi (another form of Goddess Durga)

Goddess Kali

– and fight the demons/enemies within, i.e. fight all negativity.

With love to all,


LOVE – Across the Universe!

The Grand Cross Meditation(s) on June 26th, 2010

The White Flower - Grand Cross gift from Marina

Dear friends,

So much has happened on the day of Grand Cross meditation that it became a real challenge for me to present it to you in a condensed form. As a group of sincere, experiential spiritualists, we did our best to contribute to the wave of Love and positivity that was spread on our beautiful planet on June 26th.

BTW meditation was conducted at more or less the same time in Dubai, Muscat, Greece, New Delhi, Thane, Mumbai, Munich, London and Belgrade (and other locations where it was done individually). All were tuning in and all had their own profound experiences – Mohanji’s presence was clearly felt at all the locations.

Here’s the account of Dubai meditation and synopsis of what happened at some of the stated locations:

Dubai, June 26th- the Grand Cross experience

Since early morning, Mohanji and I were in full action, running from one end of Dubai to another  in order to complete the Seva tasks for the day. Last was the blessing of one house in Mirdif – the lady who invited us had many beautiful artifacts in her new home, but did not know how a picture of Sathya Sai Baba appeared in her kitchen. After we spent some time together, she understood just how big of a blessing this is and that it is not a coincidence that Mohanji, from all the people, was the first person she offered lunch in her new house. Baba’s leelas always bring ever-new joy!

The young Sathya Sai Baba

We rushed to Ashima’s apartment but, by the time we arrived, most people have gathered already. We barely had a few minutes to freshen up – such haste is not our normal practice before Mohanji conducts BTW and goes into expanded state, but I guess this was a part of Grand Cross scenario…. 🙂 At the edges is the chaos, but at the center, where the Soul resides, the order is found. The gateway to that center is only through Love.

Expanded Heart - gateway to higher dimensions

Grand Cross teaches us that, by lifting the consciousness and experiencing the unconditionality of pure love, we reach the center free of all the chaos, free of all the agony of the gross. It is like an eye of the storm. Only brave ones dare to enter, only brave ones dare to love unconditionally…

The impromptu meditation that Mohanji conducted on that day arrived straight from that sacred space. It was not about the words, it was about the tangible experience of that overwhelming energy. I have seen Mohanji in Samadhi before and could understand, by the way he was uttering the words, that he was in that state and that talking is a great struggle for him. But the experience he delivered (i.e. that was delivered through him) was superb. I became like a stone statue – at that time no photo taking and no movement was possible from my side. At one point I had a clear intuitive message to change the CD, which I did somehow, and we all allowed the love and devotion to blossom following the loving tunes of Arati from Siddha Yoga tradition.

Since so many people came that some had to even sit in the hallway, Shaktipat during meditation was simply not possible. Mohanji thus said that he will give individual Shaktipats to all after the meditation. That lasted for more than an hour and gave us enough time to bathe in the experience until it was time for Mohanji and I to fly back to Muscat.

The humble Jayan receiving Shaktipat

At the airport he went into expanded state again, as so many people from different locations across the globe were still tuning into his consciousness. I knew how difficult it was for him to move while in that supple stage – as we were moving through the security checks and boarding the plane, I witnessed the sweet balancing of all those activities at different planes of existence, all happening at the same time… Through that consciousness, we were all connected, although at different locations:

BTW in Munich (Germany) – sharing by Marina

“I felt we were having a private audience with Mohanji. Very dense and intense energy. Brilliant and touching. Lots of heat got generated. In fact I felt as if lava was surrounding my body when I gave Shaktipat. White lava. And it was as if we were hovering on a soft white cloud of love and light – I felt and saw the most intense yet gentle heat of white (!) fire within that cloud. White lava and fire! Just brilliant – pure and powerful!

The soothing radiance of Marina

 And one of the most touching feedbacks came from a lady who described the big and bright light she saw, the enormous heat she felt in her hips and lower back and that she saw flower petals opening up at the top of her head at one point during Shaktipat. In fact I also felt an opening on her head when I touched her Sahasrara. When she talked about her experience after the meditation her eyes and mine just locked – clicked – and tears welled up, on both sides.
What an energy that Mohanji and the divine forces let flow through us!! Nourishing and purifying at all levels.”

BTW in New Delhi – sharing by Dana

“[…]During the meditation so much of heat got generated that my chest and cheeks were burning and throat was so dry. Contrary to that, my palms were ice cold. I couldn’t wait to drink some water as well as to place my cold palms on my burning cheeks.

My body was vibrating even before we started with breathing techniques and meditation. Richa told me later on that I didn’t have a human form at all. I was moving amongst all of them as a white light (actually she described it as “if I was touched, I would fly higher – like cotton”).

Dana - the white light

For the first time, my home was full of people. When I came to give Shaktipat to Suzy, an amazing thing happened – the moment I placed my palm on her crown chakra, I became so expanded that I felt again like a giant from Alladin’s lamp. It was like being connected straight to the source… putting your finger in the plug point which is Creator Himself.”

BTW in Muscat – sharing by Dr. Deepali

“[…]I could clearly see the soul of each person present. I also could see the attachment of the EGO with the soul. I also saw Mohanji’s energy working on them. I realized that the side movements which I felt distinctly throughout the meditation were nothing but fight between ego and his energy. Ego was resisting the energy. It did not want to leave the soul. Soul was quiet, watching the game. Soul is a pure energy; unaffected by anything. The fight was quite serious. Mohanji had tough time to fight with each one’s ego. Ultimately Mohanji won the fight. His energy is so pure and hence it is strong. He gave only two choices, either work with awareness or with emotions.

The purity of Dr. Deepali - her Seva of recording & transcribing Mohanji's talks

This fight was to make a big shift towards awareness. I remembered that, during QA on 18 June 2010, he had mentioned about these choices. He actually installed the choice of awareness. This is the need of the time. Consciousness is shifting at faster speed. If we catch up, we get it. Otherwise, we wait; we may have to wait for a life time or few life times.

There was resistance by each person’s ego. Degree of resistance was different. At last, Mohanji gave everyone a thick solid shield and lifted them up in the higher consciousness. Hope each person understands what they have been gifted with. He achieved the purpose of today’s meditation. This was a beautiful experience.”

BTW in London – sharing by Fabian:

Fabian and Nicole - BTW in London, Grand Cross day

“This was an extremely powerful Shaktipat for all the participants. We started the meditation in sync with the Dubai group at 2pm London time (which was 5 pm Dubai time) so that we could join Mohanji’s group astrally. After the meditation we had a brief satsang and during the sharing of experiences we found that two meditators had the same vision of mainly Egyptian content. Metta to all, Fabian”

Belgrade BTW (Serbia) – sharing by Marija:

“On this special day in the universe we chose to ‘get wired’ to the opening of the new chapter in universal consciousness, chapter of increased awareness – through love, understanding and compassion.

The glow of sweet Marija's smile and third eye

Belgrade’s Power of Purity Group was great both in quantity and quality.  The presence of Mohanji’s expanded state was so large, like I’ve never experienced before. Once I started giving Shaktipat, my heart started beating unbelievably hard until the very end of meditation. The heat on my palms was so intense, as if they had 100 degrees in them.  Also, I could clearly feel strong vibrations along the spine of many who were present. At one moment, after giving Shaktipat to Dusan (highly evolved boy you could read about in the “Blast in all Directions” blog post) my entire hand became numb and my face started getting numb too (later on, his father Goran said that Dusan went home singing out loud, smiling and being so open and extroverted, despite the fact that he is most of the time quiet, observing, and more introverted).  What a great transformation!! 🙂

Our multi-faceted Goran, Master of Kendo, Tai Chi, and more 🙂

As meditation continued and the group energy expanded even more, I felt as if our entire room lifted off the ground and that we were about to start flying collectively, just like in the greatest fairytales :-). It is just that this was real, cuz the energy was so tangible, and present.  After meditation was over, there was a long silence, and I was practically speechless.  I saw the happiness in people’s eyes, their level of openness, and the invisible bonds we all made together.

Thank you Mohanji, thank you all the great Masters, thank you Universe for allowing us to witness changes both in ourselves and in the world itself, and for reminding us that we are made of pure energy and love.  It is Oneness that we all are part of, and that we need to go back to.”

And finally, I would like to crown this blog post with the following words of Mohanji, echoing into eternity:

 There is deep clarity in the path of Shiva. Same consciousness operates. The path is both simple and extremely difficult. Simple because there is nothing to do. Just like the monkey’s child clings on to its mother, disciples cling on to the tangible Guru and the Guru takes them to the highest possible elevation, only as much as the disciple can handle. The child monkey is not climbing any tree. It cannot, by itself. The mother climbs. The child holds on. If the child leaves its mother’s hands, it could fall into the depths and die. So, the path is both simple and difficult. The main difficulty is the fall due to our ego. Sometime, when great experiences are happening to all around us, through us, we feel that we are giving those experiences and we forget the hands behind our power.

The power happens to us, due to the Grace. The unfailing grace happens from the Lord Almighty. When we forget the Almighty and His angels, do-er ship happens and then we fall. Do-er ship increases our ego. It makes us alienated from the reality. So, our path is all about FAITH, PURITY and SURRENDER. Then, we will always remain in the lap of the Almighty. We will always remain well protected. We will always operate in Supreme Consciousness.

In deep surrender,


Mohanji and Biba - holding on, with Faith, Purity and Surrender...
