1. MOHANJI’S BIRTHDAY IN PURI
This year we celebrated it in the spiritually esteemed and holy town of Puri in the state of Odisha, India.
The day began at 5:30am with a special homa (fire ceremony) conducted for the benefit of the ancestral lineages of the participants and volunteers present on the retreat and many more who joined online from their homes all across the world.
These homas, specially inspired and blessed by Mohanji, are examples, albeit on a smaller scale, of Mohanji’s key work of cleansing the entire living and ceased ancestral lineage of all living beings. Mohanji and the present group of dignitaries joined the homa towards the end, and after all offerings had been made, Mohanji gave his blessing for the ceremony to be officially closed.
As the homa was going on, Mohanji was also invited as a special guest to attend a local The Fruit Tree Plantation Drive in Puri. The project, initiated and carried out by the Happiness Foundation, involves planting fruit trees all along the roadside pilgrimage route to the Shri Jagannath Temple.
Mohanji’s official birthday celebrations began in the afternoon with representatives from all major countries joining together to light oil lamps. After the lamps had been lit, we were treated to a wonderful vocal performance by vocalist, Manaswini, and a traditional Odishi dance performance by Premananda Sahoo.
2. PUBLICATIONS LAUNCHES
Then we came to launch of official publications, which began with the launch of Mohanji Platforms Global Impact Report and the official Mohanji Foundation Calendar for 2023-2024.
3. BOOK LAUNCHES
The launch of these more formal publications were followed by the launch of the book, Home for a Refugee, by Mohanji’s wife, Devi Mohan.
Devi describes the word ‘Home’ in the title as representing the Supreme Consciousness, to which Mohanji has been gradually guiding all of his followers to, and the word ‘Refugee’ as representing the condition of being lost in the world of suffering and spiritual ignorance.
This was followed by the book, The Ultimate Gamble, by Mohanji’s Executive Assistant, Christopher Greenwood. The book captures Chris’ learning over his three-year-plus journey of living and working with Mohanji and the tremendous transformation that he experienced during the course of it.
Next, the brand new book, JagaMohana: The Oneness of Divinity, was released by author Subhasree Thottungal. The book gives expression to the experiences of many who experienced the deep spiritual unity of Lord Jagannath and Mohanji that was clearly perceived during the time of Mohanji’s first visit to Puri. The book gives expression to the fact that divinity is that which lies beyond all form and all names within the perfect unity of consciousness.
There were also three children’s books that have been brought out by the Mohanji Platform, Early Bird’s Club. For this launch, Mohanji got up to speak and affirmed to the whole audience that we are never really adults, but only grown-up children. As a result of this, he tells us, we should create an environment for our children to develop as naturally as possible without simply trying to force them to become other ‘bricks in the wall’.
Nurture and Empower
Nurture and Empower
The next release was a special printed edition of the Awakening Times, which marks the ninth anniversary of bringing forth this conscious magazine to help liberate all beings and to add value to the world. Mohanji again came to stage, congratulated the team and said: ‘A magazine should talk truth. Something that communicates with the public should only talk truth. Maybe people don’t want to hear it. Society likes to talk of untruth and not truth. It usually takes a couple of generation to know that somebody was telling the truth. So these things will becoming the testimonial of those who told the truth at their time. My suggestion to the people making this is to stay with truth, even if it’s bitter.’
Also released were new translations of the classic book, Power of Purity, into Danish
4. DIGNITARIES AND OTHERS HONOURED BY MOHANJI
After the book launches, the following present dignitaries (and many more) were personally honoured by Mohanji: Shri Sulakhe Maharaj – former Chief Priest of Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, Swami Goswami Sushilji Maharaj – National Convenor of the Indian Parliament of Religions, and Peetadheeswar (Maharishi Brighu Foundation), Haji Syed Salman Chisty – Gaddi Nashin (Ajmer Sharif Shrine of Kwaja Moinudeen Hana Chisty) and Chairman of Chisty Foundation, Ajmer, Swami Shivanand, Shri Unni Bhaskara – leading entrepreneur in the aviation industry and a long-time friend of Mohanji’s, Shri Padam Singhania – prominent industrialist and entrepreneur, Dr Shankar Gopal – Padmashri awardee and leading architect who specialises in harmony of structures with nature and her elements, Dr Murthy Devarbhotla – entrepreneur from Hyderabad and co-founder of Amicability Diplomatic Club, Shri Yogesh Mathuria – peace activist and strong campaigner for unity across all manmade barriers and boundaries, Shri Narayan Suryakumar – CEO of Ramaiah Institute (Ayurveda), T. M. Sankaran – uncle of Mohanji who played a loving host to Mohanji during his college years, Dolf Zantige – water scientist and creator of full spectrum coherent water (Analemma/Somarka) in India, Dr Umesh Dayanandan – homeopathic doctor and childhood friend of Mohanji.
Sulakhe Maharaj then came to the stage to present Mohanji with a special Mahavastram, or ‘Great clothe’, which has actually been worn by the Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Murti in Shirdi. The garment was provided as an ‘armour’ to protect Mohanji and all of his global family. This gifting came along with many tender words from Maharaj, including his wish that Mohanji will continue to allow us to externally call him Mohanji whilst we forever hold him in our hearts as ‘Gurudeva Mohanji’.
In the middle of the releases, we finally had the grace to welcome the man who orchestrated this year’s Mohanji birthday being celebrated in Puri: Pattajoshi Janardan Mahapatra, Chhattisha Nijog Nayak and Chief Servitor of Lord Jagannath Temple, Puri. As Pattajoshi made a very humble entrance and greeted Mohanji and the rest of the dignitaries, we also welcomed Mahaprasad Kar, son of late Padmashree Shree Prafulla Kar, to the stage. We were then all blessed to hear a number of bhajans performed by this wonderful vocalist.
The launches then continued with the release of a number of guided meditations, including the Shirdi Sai Baba Miracle Meditation in multiple languages and also a brand new guided meditation, Love Beyond Dimensions, composed by Mohanji Acharya Subhasree. Also released was the brand new official Mohanji App, created by Mohanji follower and entrepreneur, Graham Caldwell, who miraculously learnt a number of new programming languages in a very short time just to create the app.
As we proceeded into the evening, we invited Pattajoshi and the other dignitaries to relight the lamps and we were then treated to another session of traditional Bharatnatyam dancing from the HSTD team.
Nearing the conclusion of this spectacular event, which has also come to act as the main yearly gathering for the global Mohanji Foundation, Madhusudan Rajagopalan, CEO of Mohanji Foundation, came to the stage and paid a special recognition to many of the core team members across the world whose work has been especially important, inspiring and influential in the past year of activities.
The evening concluded with a speech by Mohanji, who gave his overwhelming approval for the organisation of the event and the dedicated work of all the volunteers. Finally, to cater for the large audience, two birthday cakes were cut and Pattajoshi and Mohanji gave their blessings and took photos with all who wished for them. The entire evening was truly a spectacle to behold and one that set the tone for further celebrations in the years to come, which Mohanji has confidently stated will henceforth take place in our new burgeoning MCB spaces worldwide!

6. MOHANJI FOUNDATION:
On Thursday, February 23, we celebrated the birthday of our beloved Mohanji. Birthday parties were held at Mohanji centers in Novi Sad, Belgrade and Čačak. Music was played, delicious vegans snacks were served, hugs were exchanged and smiles were shared.
The magnificent Lotus band played live at the Mohanji Centre in Belgrade and touched the hearts of people around the globe.
We celebrated the birthday within our family’s inner circle, but we were also blessed with the company of some new people.
It just so happened that a guest visited the Belgrade Centre on Mohanji’s birthday for the very first time. Her experience was really amazing.
“Good afternoon, dear people, good afternoon, indeed!” This is how I greeted today the hostess of the Mohanji Centre in Belgrade after our close encounter of the third kind in the centre last night. Namely, I visited this place for the very first time last night, on the very day of Mohanji’s birthday. I was somewhat sceptical and a bit excited, and I immediately plunged into a warm and welcoming atmosphere filled with music, wonderful voices of singers and some loving people who sat on the floor of the room. Such a welcome slowly but surely dispelled all of my doubts and prejudices. After a wonderful meal, a divine group meditation, after Mohanji Energy Transfer (MET) through Jelena’s gentle touch, the most delicious vegan birthday cake I have ever tasted – a deep inner feeling whispered to me – “Welcome to your spiritual family after an endless, lonely journey!” I have been a spiritual seeker ever since I knew about my earthly Self. I have been through different situations, got tired of them all, and I assured myself and my Ego that I do not need a spiritual teacher or a group, and that I can and must reach Liberation on my own. Until I heard my soul cry, “I want to find my Spiritual Master!” And the rest is history. I run upon Mohan Devi on YouTube and was overjoyed, once again listened to several of Mohanji’s speeches, contacted the Belgrade Centre and visited it. This morning, the alarm woke me up from a beautiful dream in which I was singing with my sister at the top of my voice, and found me in deep Peace and Joy, which has not happened for a decade or two. Good afternoon, good afternoon, indeed.”
Our dear Ivona Pleskonja has also shared her amazing experience:
The birthday celebration of our beloved Mohanji at the Belgrade Centre was magical and special for me. Joy, love and unity spread from all of our hearts. The Kirtan was powerful, everything vibrated in prayers🙏🙏🙏. The meditation was particularly powerful. I felt the entire Universe, especially when I received the MET, I saw with my inner eye that I was in the Universe and that I was shining like a huge star with the hand of the Mohanji Channel on the top of my head. I literally felt like a Star that treats all celestial objects as its children. I do not know which star it is, but the feeling is so LOVE and so strong that I cannot find the right words to describe it.
Happy birthday, Mohanji
Jai Mohanji Namaste
This has been a special day, charged with joy, love and unity.
We are grateful for every minute together that Mohanji gave us, we keep on moving with peace and love. 🙏
Mohanji centres in Novi Sad, Belgrade and Čačak
Mohanji Centre of Benevolence in Obrenovac
We are extremely happy because of the realisation of Mohanji’s vision to conduct programs in Mohanji Centres of Benevolence throughout the world. This day, 25th February 2023, will remain for remembrance and history.
With great joy and excitement we inform you that the first program has been conducted in our centre of benevolence in Obrenovac. The reason for organising it was a birthday celebration of our founder – Mohanji. And how to celebrate it other than with Conscious Dancing, a beautiful technique that was given to us by exactly Mohanji.
Our gracious Mohanji Acharya, Biljana Vozarevic, masterly led us through the dance and deeper connecting with ourselves through movement, so that everything was vibrating with love and togetherness.
Mohanji centre of benevolence is a realisation of Mohanji’s vision to live united regardless of nationality, skin colour, ethnicity, religion, caste, gender, or age. All are welcome to together unite the world with love, kindness, compassion, companionship and righteousness. In this way we use our time well on this planet and pave the way to our personal transformation through our own experience. The transformation from sound and noise to inner silence, from gross to subtle, from binding to liberated existence where a man can have everything, while needing nothing.
It is very important to stay united and together walk united, support each other, without criticising, judging, comparing or competing with each other. Our motto is respect, appreciation, acceptance, recognition and love. In this way, we contribute to reduce anger, hatred, jealousy and moral bankruptcy in the world. Mohanji Centre of Benevolence will establish and nurture true values through generations. It will practise authentic and transforming Mohanji’s techniques so that as many people as possible radiate the highest in themselves.
Sigurni smo da je prvi program održan u Mohanđi centru mira na Balkanu, prelepim povodom, dao ton za sve buduće proslave i programe koji će se održavati u ovom i drugim centrima na ovim prostorima. Presrećni zbog realizacije Mohanđijeve vizije održavanja programa u centrima mira širom sveta, ovaj dan će ostati za pamćenje i istoriju.
We continue to build other projects on the land, so that we have enough capacity for all future programs. More photos

A truly wonderful day with a wonderful occasion.
Celebrating Mohanji’s birthday for the first time in the UK Mohanji Centre of Benevolence in Aberdeen, Scotland, was wonderful. The day started with the online morning group Kriya followed by a breathtaking sunrise. Surrounded by nature, the bright golden light filtering through the trees was a beautiful blessing from Mohanji. During the day, the home and the surrounding area were cleaned and then purified with vibhuti water and chanting.
The celebrations in the evening included a hybrid session of chanting, bhajans and birthday cake cutting with almost 30 people. An update on the soon-to-begin Shirdi Sai Temple building work was shared with the participants. We are really excited to have this Mohanji space in the UK and look forward to hosting and celebrating many more events in the future.
Thank you, dearest Mohanji, for your grace, love, blessings and protection ever present for all of us. We wish you a very happy birthday. Jai Mohanji!

On the auspicious occasion of Mohanji’s 58th birthday, Mohanji Malaysia family gathered to celebrate with an outpouring of Joy, Love, Devotion and much Laughter! It was a lovely Sunday (19th February, 2023) morning where the sun shone so brightly and the birds sang so beautifully. These, and the warm, bright smiles of all attendees definitely set the tone for the day and celebration.
The celebration began with the Guru Paduka Puja (holy feet worship) to offer our gratitude to Mohanji, our beloved Father, for his unconditional Love and Guidance throughout time. Each family member took turns to one by one pour milk and rose water over the paduka and Shirdi Sai Baba with the 108 names of Mohanji playing in the background. It was then followed by the Mohanji Aarti where everyone took turns individually or as a family to perform the Aarti while singing to the lyricss with full of devotion and utmost respect. There was a shift in the energy at that moment which was felt by all alike.
The highlight of the celebration had our dear family members Ash and Hannah dedicating Shiva and Krishna devotional songs to Mohanji. Their voices mesmerised us and brought all of us to a different level of existence. One family member even described it as a magical and enchanting feeling with heart expanded and being gently lifted into a different dimension. The participants were afterwards transported into Mohanji’s gentle and protective embrace as all meditated to our beloved Father chanting the Shiva Kavacham..
Taken from a letter written on his birthday in 2019, our beloved Mohanji had expressed that neither him nor his birthday are special. Instead, to view and celebrate it as a “Consciousness Day” where we remember him as a consciousness and that “You & I are One”. Always dear Father, always. And for this we are always grateful for all that you do and are, and will celebrate you in any way.
We had a beautiful birthday surprise in the form of a decadent vegan cake prepared specially for the occasion. Everyone sang Happy Birthday to Mohanji full of Love and Joy. This was then followed by a lovely vegetarian lunch filled with talk and laughter as most were catching up after a long time since the lockdown and restrictions. All in all, it was a lovely day filled with lots of positivity, blessings and lightness. We are ever so grateful to Dr. Thiages and family for their grace and kindness in hosting the celebration of our dear Mohanji.
And once again, Happy Birthday dearest Father from the Mohanji Malaysia family. We love you!

Mohanji is my Father, my teacher, all of the universe, and the beauty in the smallest things at the same time. Mohanji means unconditional love and eternity. I feel so grateful & blissful that he is walking with me in every step that I take. I can feel his presence and love always. That makes me flow like a river through life, accepting all the challenges and blissful moments with awareness and humility.

It’s the feeling of expansion and true love. Being Mohanji is living the highest truth. Dear Father, thank you for always being by my side, for giving me a true purpose in my life, and for making me feel your unconditional love always. I wish you great happiness, love, and good health.

Love you always!

Thank you for being in my life. You are always there for me. The tender wind that carries me. A light in the dark shining your love into my life. You’ve been my inspiration. Through the lies, you are the truth. My world is a better place because of you. You were my strength when I was weak. You are my voice when I cannot speak. You were my eyes when I could not see. You see the best there is in me. You lifted me up when I could not reach. You gave me faith ’cause you believed. I’m everything I am because of you. Unconditional love. Happy birthday Dear Brahmarishi Mohanji. Have a wonderful day of celebrations. Keep shining like a million suns. Love you eternally. Happy birthday Mohanji!

On this day 58 years ago, the world was blessed with smiling baby who did not come crying into this world but smiled, with full knowledge that this will be a difficult life but one filled with so much purpose. 58 years later, so much great work is being celebrated. Meals have been fed to all beings of the earth, water and air. Lives have been transformed and people are leading lives filled with purpose and stability. So many have hope in such desperate circumstances.What an immense pleasure to be able to serve on the platforms created by You. Happy Birthday Guruji. Love you endlessly. Thank you for all that you do for us, all the seen and unseen, known and unknown.
What Mohanji means to me:
The Truth of Me my True Reality which I have yet to experience fully, I see in You Mohanji – magnificently magnified.
Freedom’s Friend You are, my wondrous Wayshower,
My Pillar of Strength, and Cosmic Compass.
You mean to me my safe Harbour in Consciousness, and safety and support in Your Dynamic Stillness.
Covered in Your Kavach of Devi and Shiva, the Light of God Golden You are.
Love is Your Nature, Pure and Priceless.
You hold me close and raise me up to be Me as You, and You as Me in the Wholeness of the Unity – the Oneness in God.

My Guru, guide and friend. Aspiring to reach my highest potential by overcoming the pull of tamas and the limitations of my mind. Dear Mohanji, I would like to wish you a very happy birthday!! I know that you will be inundated with messages today and tomorrow. But I wanted to give you my good wishes on this special day. For your birthday, we are launching a new initiative called ACT4Africa, to expand our ACT4Hunger and ACT Foundation activities to more areas of the world. We are also launching the Shirdi Baba temple project at the MCB to be able to get the funds for a proper temple space at the MCB. Thank you for adding value to our lives, for your example, your grace and constant guidance. We are so happy that the greatest gift of all, the Scotland MCB is in place now. Wishing you a fabulous birthday! Lots of love from Vijay, Ranjana, Nilam and Vivek

Happiest birthday to you, Lord. We should congratulate ourselves for having you on earth. Your birthday is more beneficial for us than you since you don’t have any agenda here on earth, and you just stay completely selfless in helping us and anyone who prays for help. How many times you took people’s burdens and baggage to yourself and your body, we don’t know. To how many people you have reached out to, we don’t know. In how many dimensions you are working, we don’t know. How you’re operating, we don’t know. We just know you’re the strength and light of hope for many! We know you’re the most compassionate being in the world. We know you don’t rest even if it seems you’re resting. We know you are so humble that you never talk about what you have done and doing for us. We know you see all our flaws, and still, you love us to the fullest, unconditionally. So grateful for your existence. So grateful to Amma and Achan for gifting you to us. May you live long and healthy. Always at your lotus feet. Love You, Mohanji Baba
