Pain and Suffering – Part 3

Ivana Kalinic, senior MTM practitioner

The day when Mohanji’s accident happened, I was on the phone with Barbara, and we were talking about how we both felt that something huge was going on, negative. We didn’t know what exactly. And at that point, Milica called me, and she told me to do a session for Father (Mohanji) urgently and that she would let me know what was happening. I was not worried at all; I was very focused and stable. I immediately sat and tapped into the situation.

I first saw Father, and huge, black energy, like a balloon, hit him strongly in the chest area. I saw that the intensity of the hit was so hard that it caused hard pressure. As his blood pressure increased immediately to a very high point, his ears started to buzz, and his arms were completely numb. And at that point, I didn’t know that he had a car accident and that the airbag opened up, so I was witnessing this part.

I could see his legs were also very numb, especially from the knees down; it looked like energy had started to withdraw from the body. That is when I received the message from Milica that they had a car accident, a head-on collision, and that Father was injured by the airbag, which opened and caused a severe hit in the chest.

Simultaneously on an astral level, so many things happened at once. Some of the things I will not share it is irrelevant to this story – it’s about the personal stories of many family members, which he took over at that time.

One scene that I saw was very important. I saw all the saints from our Tradition, various saints. I recognised some of them, and some were unknown to me. I could clearly say that they never incarnated on Earth. And they were all gathered around Mohanji, around his physical body. Only Shirdi Baba stood next to him; they were all very quiet and occupied. They didn’t even notice me; they didn’t even look at me. I was standing and observing. And they were all either praying or chanting; some were performing fire ceremonies. To me, it looked more like a ritual than some healing process.

I found it strange. I thought to myself that they were kind of passive, not actively healing his body. I felt something strange about that. Probably at that time, I was not ready to understand it, to comprehend it. I could see that, of course, in his true form, Mohanji was glowing in golden light. He was very well; he was smiling. He was not affected at all; his physical body was there.

At some point, they took him somewhere, and they didn’t allow me to come. I didn’t know what was happening. Meanwhile, Milica told me that it is a secret and not to share it with anyone, that only Preeti Duggal, Devi and me know what happened, and that he was not in the hospital. Hearing that he’s not in the hospital gave me additional confidence that all is well. That is when I closed up this process for that time.

In the morning, they went to the hospital. I knew Father was in pain, but even then, I didn’t realise the seriousness of the situation because the day before, I sent him a message, and at some point, he responded to that message. It was not related to the car accident; it was before the accident. He was basically responding to me from the hospital, which happened a few days back. I thought, “Okay, he’s responding to messages; let me directly check how he is.” He told me that he was having pain in the chest and heart, but he didn’t take any painkillers because he didn’t want to become numb and not understand whether the pain increased or decreased. 

But, even from the hospital, he was working, responding to messages, etc. That is when he also told me that the heart had a concussion and that the doctors were finding it serious, and they wanted to admit him to the hospital. Still, I could not relate to the seriousness of the situation because he looked completely fine in the sense that he was not panicking; he was not creating any drama. Of course, we know he never does that, but without that, it was hard to understand the seriousness of the situation in those circumstances.

When he mentioned the heart and the doctor’s diagnosis, I asked him, “Can we from the MTM group do a session for you for that situation?” He said, “Yes, but only work on the physical body. If I’m being recalled, do not touch that. And that is when I understood the actual seriousness of the situation. I started to panic. I remembered the scene I saw with the saints all together around them; I understood that it was a ritual of transition for exiting the body. Those rituals were for that purpose, not to heal his physical body. That is when I freaked out. I sat again to tap into this situation. I knew he said not to touch anything else, only to work on the physical body.

Then I understood and thought, “Oh my God, if they recall him, they’re not going to listen to us, and we are not allowed to interfere.” I thought maybe if we pray, that is how we can affect the situation. So I contacted the other members of the MTM group, and I asked them to all get together and witness what was happening and to pray. I thought they would not listen to me, but if more of us pray that he stays, perhaps they will be compassionate about this. Suddenly, some of these saints seemed so strict to me. I thought there would be no negotiation about it when they made their decision. That is when reality actually hit me. I understood what he meant when he said that his body belongs to the Tradition. Once they decide to recall him, it is going to happen. I mean, we cannot do anything about it. I felt totally helpless in that situation.

That is when I understood how selfish I am to think about myself in that situation, whether I am ready or not for his leaving. I could see that the entire Tradition was not really happy about how we treated Mohanji. I started to feel sad about how much we take his presence on Earth for granted. I mean, having a saint of such stature who can sit anywhere else in the universe and be of help and in service, and he’s sitting with us, and we are taking his time for granted, we are taking his presence for granted.

While witnessing that, I was still on the messages with him. I shared the feeling, and he sent me a heart. I was thinking again about how selfish I am. He was in ICU, waiting for the examination of his heart, and he was comforting me about the possibility of losing him. I mean, what a paradox.

When I saw his physical body during the session, in the second part, I saw that the heart was swollen, and one of the arteries had some leakage. And I could see that it is very seriously possible to have a fatal outcome. Again, I saw the saints sitting around. Some negotiation happened. I couldn’t understand everything, but I understood that some suggested that he leaves, and some suggested staying. Later on, Mohanji explained that some of them offered him to take another birth and live a short life, like up to 30 years and then exit.

Even in the first session the previous evening, I could see that they took him somewhere; I couldn’t see where, but he was happy. They allowed the heart issue to stay so they could call him back at any time.

The next day, when I looked at the situation again, when negotiations were happening, I could see that the possibility of him leaving was still open. So that is when I started to pray and pray more, and the MTM group prayed for him. At some point, I saw all of them leaving, and Mohanji’s physical form remained there.

At the same time, simultaneously, we were on messages. I told him that they all left and, “It seems like you’re stuck with us.” And that message didn’t reach him. WhatsApp said that it was sent but not received. That is when my mind started to get more and more active. I thought of the story he told us so many times about the guru whose disciples took him for granted, and at some point, he left his body. When he was on the way to the hospital, the Guru was still speaking to all the nurses and his disciples who were there. When they came to the hospital, they said he had died an hour ago. His last lesson for his disciples was proof of his stature, where he talked to them while he was dead.

That is when my mind started to think, “Oh, my God, what if he is actually dead, and he’s messaging me?” Because I knew anything was possible. I was restless until he received my message. I said, “Okay, luckily, we got out of it this time, but this can happen at any point.”

A few days after that, when Mohanji came to Novi Sad, I visited him with Barbara and Monika. He was so calm and happy as always. He was not affected by the situation at all. The second time when I did this session, I could physically feel his pain, the pressure on the chest area. Even now, whenever I talk about him in that sense, I can feel this pressure and pain. I’m amazed how he was not affected, not even a little.

When he was in the hospital, my mother asked me how I was and whether I was well. I realised I had completely forgotten that the previous day when he had an accident, during the day, not in the evening, I suddenly felt a sharp pain in my heart, and I could not breathe for a few minutes, and my arms were totally numb. Only when she asked me how I was I understood that it was kind of a premonition where I could feel that something was going to happen. But I totally forgot. 

When I saw him in Novi Sad, Mohanji told me, “People who are deeply connected would feel when I’m leaving.” Then I also remembered that 4-5 years back, I saw the vision of him leaving the body in 2022. I know that we got out of it this time. We had the grace from the Tradition that he stays a bit longer, but I’m also fully aware that they can withdraw him at any time. When we spoke, I told him that we were not ready for his leaving, and he said, “What not ready? Circumstances make you ready. Whatever happens to my physical body, do not slow down, and do not stop the work. Just keep going, keep doing your work.”

I understood how much I was attached to his physical form even though I communicate with him telepathically mostly. Even though I know that he will be even more accessible to us when he leaves the body, I can still feel the sorrow regarding his leaving. I hope that we will all take this as a wake-up call, as a warning that he might leave without further announcement, and that we need to take his presence on Earth with deep gratitude.

I now understand that every breath that we take is a blessing. But every breath we take, having Mohanji around physically, is a pure grace of Tradition. I am deeply grateful for this opportunity to walk with him, contribute to the platforms he established, and witness what he does for the entire world.

Even during this situation, he had tremendous physical pain but no suffering. And he had no distractions during pain. He was constantly working like nothing ever happened. And that is a true inspiration for me, always to see how selfless he is, how he constantly serves, without any expectations, without a need for gratification and for applause, just selflessly serving this world, as long as he lives. I really hope that he will stay with us long, but if he decides to leave or the Tradition decides to withdraw him, I am ever grateful to have this opportunity to be in his life. I also know that his mission and work will continue through all of us, and he will be available and guiding us even then.

Pain and suffering – Part 2

Dear friends, this is the continuation of the previous part, “Pain and suffering“, by the closest witnesses of Mohanji’s recent car accident and the learnings behind that.

Milica Miskovic, personal assistant to Mohanji

1. Moral of the story

I will share my experience of that terrible day. I was there in the car when the accident with Mohanji and the group happened. I was sitting in the back seat. The next day, I was with Mohanji in the hospital. It was an unbelievably shaky moment for all of us, a frightening experience.

The accident happened; it was a head-on collision. The cars collided, but our vehicle was slightly turned to one side. That’s why the most impact was on Mohanji.

He was seated at the front adjacent to the driver, his seat leaning slightly backwards in a comfortable position; his body was not erect. He was partially sleeping, in a half-lying position. That meant the head was not in the front. One airbag came in front of him, the other one on the side. His head was saved, and other parts were saved. The hit was completely on the chest. He had tremendous pain in his chest. The doctor later said that usually, if that kind of impact happens on the chest, the heart stops immediately. Instant death happens.

He survived. It was his rebirth.

After the hit, he was holding his hand on his chest and was struggling to breathe. Yet, Mohanji did not display any shock or turbulence. He chokingly asked us, “Are you all okay?” We recognized his voice was choking. He could hardly speak, and was holding his chest. We told him we were okay. He turned to Christopher and told him to take care of the people in the other car. He opened the door and got out of the vehicle. 

Christopher went and offered water to the passengers of the other car. It was an old couple. Mohanji also walked towards the other car and made sure that the old couple was okay. Then he slowly walked towards the walkway on the other side of the road and stood there.

Meanwhile, Paula and I got out of the car and checked if Mohanji was okay. He nodded he was alright, even though he was holding his chest and he was breathing with difficulty. We gave him some water. He still had pain and difficulty breathing for some time. He didn’t talk about it. There was steam coming from the front side of our car. He just told us to take out all the bags from the car and bring them to the walkway. Because of our dizzy brains, we kept the bags just outside of the car on the road, and then Mohanji said, “Bring them to the walkway.” We were also totally dazed by the shock of the accident. We didn’t catch his instructions the first time. We placed the bags on the side of the road where Mohanji was standing.

Meanwhile, Christopher was attending to the people in the other car. The next thing Mohanji told us to do was to take pictures. Christopher and I took pictures of the car from various angles. Meanwhile, Paula and Christopher called the police to come and inspect. Christopher asked Mohanji if he would like to go home. The accident happened only 1km away from the house. Christopher said we could ask Jelena Fassbender to pick up Mohanji and the bags. Mohanji agreed, and Christopher called Jelena, who came in 5 minutes. Mohanji and I left with Jelena to the house. Christopher and Paula waited for the police to come to do the formalities.

The moral here was — it doesn’t matter when or what happens, but you should always maintain your presence of mind. You should be practical and do what it takes without getting emotional, angry or upset about it. And never blame someone in such times and eclipse your practical mind. Mohanji was doing things normally, as if nothing had happened. No time was left for emotions. His instruction was to get moving.

2. Full picture and learning points

For a full picture and a complete understanding of the situation, I will take you through what happened before the accident—a rewind. Mohanji, Devi, Mila and myself – Milica arrived from Dubai to Ljubljana by aeroplane on October 7th. Madhu described that in part 1. Devi and Mila took a car from the airport to Italy. Christopher and Paula received Mohanji and me at the airport. From the airport, the four of us went to meet some visiting friends in Ljubljana. It was around 5:00 – 5:30 pm. We had some food together. It was the only food Mohanji ate until the next evening, after the accident. 

After the accident, when we got home. Mohanji lay down and began resting. He decided not to go to the hospital at night. He wanted to come in the morning so that he didn’t have to sleep in the hospital and wait for the morning check-ups.

Early in the morning, Mohanji, Paula and I went to the emergency. Jelena and Christopher were at home. Christopher was also hit, so he was resting. He had planned to go to the hospital later. The doctors asked what had happened, and Mohanji explained. They asked if he remembered the whole thing clearly to know if his head was hit and if he had lost his memory. If that were the case, it would have meant a head injury. Mohanji fully recounted the whole sequence, so they confirmed the head was okay.

Mohanji was completely calm, talking to the doctors and us as if nothing had happened. That bit of pain that he described was not a bit at all. The doctor explained to us what happened to him and how scary the situation was, that his heart could have stopped. When I asked him if he was in pain, he said, “Of course, there is pain. It is a physical pain. But I choose not to suffer.”

They took his blood and did ECG. Doctors said they found something in the heart and decided they needed to proceed with the investigation. That’s when they took him for an X-ray. At the X-ray, they said there was some problem with the chest even though there were no fractures. 

Doctors came to talk to us, and they first said they had bad news to tell us. They had said his heart condition was critical because his heart was squeezed when the accident happened, and an enzyme secretion was happening continuously. And that anything could happen from now on and that they needed to keep Mohanji under observation.

They took him for a CT scan. When the results came, they said their assessment was correct; he needed to stay in observation. They admitted him to the critical cardiac care unit (CCCU) and kept him under observation until evening.

We came back with clothes and food for him at around 4 pm. Mohanji hadn’t eaten anything for about 20-22 hours. He asked us to talk to the doctors and check if he could leave for home. He preferred not to be in the cardiac care unit. We discussed it with doctors, and they told us that he shouldn’t leave and required Mohanji to be under observation and treatment for almost two weeks. Only if he signs that he is leaving at his own risk can they let him go. Mohanji decided to leave, signing the papers for which he was responsible.

Mohanji appreciated the staff very much. He said the hospital was very good, doctors and nurses were very good. They really took care. His decision to go was because the cardiac care unit was full of pains and cries, so he preferred to rest at home instead. That’s one reason.

Secondly, after Slovenia, there was a trip to Zlatibor, Serbia, already planned. If he had accepted their advice to stay there for two or three weeks, he would have missed the programs already announced, including Empowered 5. This means he put his responsibility before his life. He always does that. He cares for his commitment more than his life.

A few points I took from this experience are:

1 Seriousness of the situation. One doctor stated that Mohanji’s accident was very severe. He said an impact as strong as Mohanji experienced leaves a person dead on the spot. For Mohanji, this is a kind of rebirth.

2 Physical pain but no suffering. When doctors checked the examination results, they told Mohanji that he must be having tremendous pain because nothing was visible on his face. Mohanji was behaving as if nothing had happened at all. When doctors asked him about the severe pain, he confirmed he did. They were confused why it wasn’t visible on his face and asked about it. He said, “Pain is in my body. I choose not to be affected.” He separated himself from the body. Usually, a person in that kind of pain would cry and ask for help, as we were seeing in the critical care ward. He refused to take painkillers too, and his face was still cool. They were surprised. He was talking to them as he generally speaks.

3 Humility. He was completely calm sitting in the emergency room with all the other patients. When he gave his arm to the nurse to take blood, the nurse couldn’t find his vein. They tried the other arm, and they still couldn’t find it. They kept piercing the arms to find the vein to extract blood. I started to feel panic thinking how many times, at many places, they pierced his arms. I looked at his face, and it was completely cool. He was allowing everything to happen—total acceptance. No matter how uncomfortable, every situation can be handled with humility and acceptance. This was his message.

4 No fear. He didn’t say anything when they told him they had bad news. He obviously didn’t feel anything, even though I was deeply concerned. It was almost like, “If I have to go, I’ll go, without any fear or regret,” even though he didn’t utter it verbally. His lack of panic or fear and the constant smile surprised the doctors. They thought he would be upset or worried. I was there witnessing this.

5 Signs of leaving. When doctors told him about the bad news and put him in the critical category, they decided Mohanji shouldn’t walk anymore. Until then, he was walking. During the examination, he was allowed to walk. When they found out the real impact of the accident, they said he was in critical condition and should not walk anymore. In between all this, he was replying to people’s messages. He was discussing many things with many people over WhatsApp. While waiting for the X-ray, he was texting Madhu, which we already described in the previous part of this blog. 

He was finishing everything and texting in a very concluding tone as if he was preparing to leave. It was as if he was in between life and death. He wished a happy birthday to one of our core team members, Barbara, and replied to even the silliest messages, as well as some small domestic emotional complaints from some people or a blessing for surgery or prayer for protection in general. He completed the incomplete so that everything was done as if preparing to exit. Even though he replied to people, he didn’t tell anybody about the accident or his condition, except Madhu. The instructions he gave Madhu were about continuing his mission on Earth.

6 Acceptance. In one moment, he had a small feeling of botheration. He wanted to go to the toilet, but doctors wouldn’t let him go without a wheelchair. I felt he saw this small space between the bed and the toilet as insignificant. He wanted to walk to avoid making a big deal out of it, but they insisted that his condition was critical. That is when I felt he was a little annoyed, but in reality, he had no annoyance. Nothing ever annoys him. 

Whenever he was out of the CCCU, and in between the check-ups, he replied to people’s messages. He had his phone with him all the time, but he wasn’t allowed to use it in CCCU and during examinations. In between, he was replying, respecting and using every bit of time on Earth. After being annoyed for a second about doctors (even though he never articulated it verbally, it just reflected on his face for a brief moment) insisting on using the wheelchair, he accepted the situation. He immediately understood these doctors were just doing their job, and he went by their suggestion.

7 Focus on purpose. We had just come from the hospital to home in the evening. He was sitting on his chair, and the first thing he did was discuss matters of the Center of Benevolence which is very close to his heart. He was discussing it with the UK team members who were visiting Slovenia. He also discussed the next songs with Jelena Fassbender; he was giving instructions. We were all kind of amazed. He was obviously in a lot of pain, having refused painkillers. He had just survived; he was still technically in critical condition. He was supposed to be in the hospital under observation in CCCU. He had signed himself out at his own risk. Even though he was in a lot of pain, nothing got affected at all. Nothing stopped.

8 Responsibility before life. He accepted the trip to Zlatibor even though his pain hadn’t reduced for many days after the accident. His one promise is worth a thousand promises. It was literally dangerous to fly with him to Serbia in his condition. But he smiled, laughed and made it look like nothing.

9 Compassion. Instead of thinking about himself, he took extra care of us too. He made sure people in the other car were safe. Secondly, he empowered us to try to be as stable as possible. I was in shock, sadness, and fear, but next to him, I was empowered to go through all that. He didn’t allow emotions to tear us up because there was still so much to do. He allowed no sympathy or entertained any self-pity.

After the accident, many characteristics of Mohanji changed. I noticed his habits were different, and his eating inclinations changed. He is much quieter, and his answers to people’s questions in satsangs appear shorter than usual. The whole feel of being around Mohanji is different. Quieter and somehow far more intense and powerful. When he eats, it feels like he is eating only to maintain his body. It was the case even before, but it is much more evident now. He was conscious of his expenses and requirements earlier; now, that has also become quite minimal. He has become quite aloof and detached.

Being an eyewitness to all this, I felt like sharing these points. Nobody expected this to happen, but it gave us a deeper understanding of many things in life and how Mohanji handles it. We have plenty of things to read and understand from this. Above all, it was a warning bell, a reminder of gratitude because we don’t know when Mohanji will leave this world.

I believe that we have taken his presence for granted. We have taken him lightly. I travelled with him to many parts of the world and saw how much he works. In hindsight, I feel that his time, efforts, intentions and commitment are all not understood or taken for granted. This is a time to introspect. Mohanji has always talked about our spaces at every location, where he can invest his energy to stabilize the spaces and the people. If he had left on October 7th, which according to the doctors was very likely, as they said it’s a miracle that he had survived, all the times we took him for granted would have become deep regrets in our hearts forever which cannot be compensated with any further action. He may work equally or more non-physically, but it’s still not the same as his feet touching a land dedicated to the mission. It’s not the same.

Pain and suffering – Part 1

Dear friends, regarding Mohanji’s car accident that happened on Friday, Oct 7 2022, in Slovenia, on their way from Ljubljana airport to Sveta Ana, we dedicate this blog to the learnings and observations connected to it from a few direct witnesses. We will hear from Christopher and Milica, who traveled with Mohanji in the car, Madhusudan, who had close communication with Mohanji post the accident, and so on.

As those who are connected to Mohanji and consider him our family, we don’t think much about when the time will come for him to leave. Somewhere deep down, we refuse to believe this will ever happen. But death is an inevitability. All that is born will die. Mohanji’s consciousness was never born and can never die too.

“The life of avatars are usually understood only after they leave the body.” – Mohanji

Christopher Greenwood, executive assistant to Mohanji

As everyone must know, we had a car accident with Mohanji on Oct 7, 2022, in Slovenia. The accident itself was quite intense. We were probably about three minutes from home in Sveta Ana when we encountered a head-on collision.

What I can remember is it almost appeared as if it was from nowhere. It seemed like a scene had been cut and started again at a different place. And the crash was happening. When it happened, there was a loud bang. I remember my ears popped, followed by a tinnitus sound, and I hit my head. When I saw what happened, all the airbags, and all the dust that I felt in my lungs, I heard someone screaming in the back.

First, I looked at Mohanji. He was shocked, holding his chest. He was okay, breathing. I asked if he was alright. He said he was. I looked behind to see if everyone else was okay. There were Paula and Milica together in the car. And at that time, I didn’t think of anything else other than getting out and seeing the car. I quickly jumped out and ran. I went to open the door to see the other driver. He and the passengers were okay. The lady was holding her chest, but everyone was okay. I went back to our car. Mohanji opened the door and came out. He stood on the side of the road, and I noticed I had a burn on my hand.

Everything happened pretty quickly. The impact was big, but everyone was out of the car within a few seconds. It felt surreal. Somebody called the police. I asked Mohanji if we should get Jelena to come in and pick him up. He agreed. He had some pain in his chest and shoulder.

He and Milica collected the bags and went away. I stayed and sorted everything out with the police. When all this finished and the car was taken away, I got back home when the statements were taken. I found out that Mohanji was sleeping, and the people had been doing Mai-Tri on him.

I was pretty shocked. Being in a car crash is one thing, but being in a car crash with Mohanji, who’s pretty important to the world, in fact, very, very important to the world, was a massive shock. I just couldn’t believe it had happened. So, obviously, you take some of that responsibility on yourself. It was quite a weight. Mohanji was asleep, so I didn’t get a chance to speak to him.

Pretty soon, people who had been doing healing on Mohanji called me. I think it was Preeti who called first. She told me not to worry about anything, that everything was going to be okay, and that this was meant to happen. As discovered, the reasons for the accident were bigger. Someone said it was a combination of many things, attacks on our people and situations of crisis in the world, which Mohanji took as a hit on himself.

For me, this was quite a hard thing to accept. The fact that it was for a reason sounded nice, but the car crashed, and I was physically seeing what was happening, and now Mohanji was in bed. It was quite a challenge to accept that. Ivana Kalinic had also called me. She had done an MTM session for Mohanji. She told me not to worry and that I didn’t need to take any guilt for what happened, but it was still heavy on me.

Everything had finished, and we went to sleep. The next day, Mohanji went to the hospital to get checked. He told me to stay and rest. I was waiting, speaking to Milica and finding out what was happening. I was also messaging him, and as he went through each step, he let me know. He was also joking, making it lighter in a way. It was as if he was conveying, “This happened—fine, what else can we do?” Later, we didn’t have too much conversation. 

Later, I got checked, and we went to the hospital to give him some food. When I was there, the doctor came in and gave the verdict, and they said that they had bad news. Their strong suggestion was for Mohanji to stay in observation. But Mohanji decided to leave at his own risk. In between, he was getting many phone calls. A whole deluge of messages came in. Milica was doing a great job, speaking with doctors and taking care.

When we spoke first thing in the morning, Mohanji was immediately back to business. The question, “What do we need to do today?”. There was no “why” or any inquiry, any analysis. No time for that. We immediately started discussing the next steps: sorting out the insurance, finding out what the damage was, how do we get a new car etc. Getting a new car was a priority. Devi and Mila needed it for transport back to Serbia.

Mohanji said it should be exactly the same car, a newer version, but if we’re getting a newer version, it should be a hybrid. And also, it should be better, safer, a four-wheel drive, and white in color. So, the same car, newer model, extra features (which don’t really exist in this model of car hybrid, often at all), four-wheel drive (which is not a standard), and above all, a specific color of it. Personally, I never doubted, but this was something in the back of my mind. When he said this, I just thought, “I don’t really know about this.”

Anyway, we took the steps. Paula gave me one of the websites for cars. We looked, and it must have been on the first page, where the car was. The same Toyota rav4, a newer model, still with factory warranty, hybrid, which is what we wanted because of energy consumption and fuel, also a four wheel drive. Plus, it was white. I just laughed.

I know how Mohanji works, although it’s difficult to understand. Not only had the accident happened, and the possible metaphysical reasons behind it, but also what had been fixed was the closure of it within a quick time, not even a few days. With Mohanji, there are no loose ends.

Mohanji said that we should make sure that the car is all checked out and perfect. It was perfect, the right mileage, the right year, everything. It had only just come for sale a day earlier or on the day of the crash. I couldn’t believe it. We made a phone call, and we went to take a look at it on Monday. After checking the car, we only had two hours to reach the garage before it closed, and on the way, we hit traffic. We thought we would miss it. We called the guy, found another garage and arranged for it. Everything was taken care of.

We arrived, checked the car, drove around, and we agreed to get the car. Finding this car was incredible but not a surprise. We had arranged everything in just enough time to reach the airport before Mohanji arrived so that we could see him off. As Mohanji left, we sat down to discuss what had been done, the whole incident from start to finish. Before the trip, Mohanji said, “Why are we spending so much time in Slovenia this weekend? We have plenty of time on our hands.” It was like a joke. We didn’t know what would happen. By the end, everything was finished.

Alongside that, we worked on bringing Sai Baba to our Peace Center in Slovenia next year. Three months ago, I said to Mohanji that June next year is when we wanted to bring Baba. I said it’s pretty tight. He said, “If you have conviction, you set the intention, the strong sankalpa, it can happen.” I talked to Paula, and we decided to make a plan and make it happen. So we did that. I drove a caravan all the way from England to Slovenia so that it could be our first volunteer accommodation to get things moving. That reached in time for Vijayadashami, Baba’s Mahasamadhi.

We focused on making a strong sankalpa. We intensified the sankalpa in Wales temple and made great progress. This was like a counteraction to the accident that happened. We pushed so much that something else had to happen. We can’t have so much light without something bad coming. When we left, Mohanji turned to Paula and said, “Baba IS coming in June. So let’s make sure everything’s ready.” This time, he didn’t say it might be possible. He said Baba was coming.

In the midst of the accident, no program had stopped. We had visitors that weekend from the UK. Mohanji met them and spoke with them. We had programs on the land too. We Received guests from a Shirdi Baba temple in Vienna. We spent time with them, served them food, and we did everything which we should have done without any complication, saying, “Oh, we can’t do this now because there’s been a crash; we can’t do this because Mohanji is sick.” We were doing this because we said we would do it. It is needed.

The Global Volunteers Meet was near, and Mohanji was getting many messages about the accident. Just before my speaking slot, Mohanji told me to tell people what had happened because he was getting so many messages. Hence we announced it to all the global volunteers.

Madhusudan Rajagopalan, the CEO of Mohanji Foundation

I first heard about the accident around midnight that day, India time. Before the crash, I had spent a few days with Mohanji in Dubai. That evening, once he landed, we were in touch. I was checking if the flight was comfortable. Later, I went to sleep, and at midnight, Milica Miskovic called me and said that they had had an accident. The car was in bad shape, Chris had some burns on his hand, and Mohanji got a hit on his chest. My first question was how Mohanji was and how the others were. The next morning, around 10 AM, Mohanji messaged me, saying that it was a pretty nasty accident. If not for the security features of the car, if it was another car, this would have been death.

His message was to offer his gratitude to Shirdi Sai Baba, Mother Mookambika and Guruvayurappan (8-year-old Krishna) in temples. He said their blessings and protection saved them; otherwise, this would have been finito. He told me to convey his gratitude for saving him to our contacts in Shirdi, Mookambika and Guruvayurappan of Kerala. Then he shared that the most impact came on him and that others seemed okay.

Two things stood up for me in that message:

  1. His first response was gratitude.
  2. His second thought was concern if everyone was okay. Our people, as well as people in the other car.

We who have been with Mohanji for a while know there is some invisible army that travels with him and protects Him. As I was chatting with him, my question to him was about that. He said, “Nevermind. That is not relevant at this point in time. My protection is not my responsibility. Therefore I don’t think about that.” What He conveyed through that is, first, total acceptance. Secondly, detachment from his physical form. For him, his physical body is just a means of doing certain things in the world. It allows him to express, communicate, and do things.

I have had many opportunities to travel with Mohanji in a car and drive him sometimes, and whenever I do, I always feel super safe because I know his protection is always there for the whole crew, not just him. He also said, “Remember, even Adi Shankara was attacked, Osho was attacked, Sai Baba was attacked. In their own places, Masters are powerful. When you are in strange environments, when you are out of your place, nobody is 100% safe. Life is like a walk across the room. You just have to go through it practically. There is nothing to think beyond that.”

Not a moment in the entire conversation, starting from then till now, when I write this, have I heard even one question from him, saying, “Why did this have to happen? Why did it happen?” He didn’t dwell on that question for even a second. Even if somebody else initiated that conversation (I know that a few people asked Him “why”), He immediately answered, “It doesn’t really matter. We’re not going to get anything through thinking about why this happened. Instead, what we should be thinking about is purpose. What are we here for, what work are we doing, and what work are you supposed to be doing. Just keep your focus purely on that. Don’t look at this; I will be fine.”

When he was texting me from the hospital, he said, “This proves that I have a heart, and nobody can now say I am heartless.” So, he was joking. I said, “Besides the fact that there is no injury, I’m happy your sense of humor is still intact, despite all of it.” His response was again very light, saying, “I never care for all of this. That’s my body’s problem. With or without it, I can function fully.” Again, the takeaway was that he had absolutely no emotion whatsoever about the fact that he was in physical pain. Or about the question “why” it happened.

All he was thinking about was — okay, I have to go through this, I will go through it, nobody else needs to bother much. Mai-Tri practitioners were giving him Mai-Tri, doctors were giving him attention, and he was taking all of it in a very open manner. He didn’t protest against anything. The only thing he refused was taking painkillers because he doesn’t like any interference with the body’s natural system. He said he could endure a little bit of pain, but He doesn’t want painkillers which will disturb His natural system.

In the hospital, he said, “They may take my phone away. The show should go on even if I cannot attend things. Don’t slow anything down. Don’t pay attention to me; pay attention to our activities. No delays. Don’t slow down. Remember this. If I have my phone with me, we shall communicate. If not, this is my instruction until next time.” In one breath, he says they may take his phone, okay, that prognosis is not okay, and in the second breath, he is saying all that. The show should go on. No delay. I took it as an instruction, and I continued.

He decided to leave the hospital, saying that he didn’t like the hospital’s atmosphere where people were sick, weeping, crying, and alarms were beeping. When he left the hospital, He asked me to inform our doctors about the accident — Dr Wasir, a cardiac surgeon and Dr Umesh, homeopathy doctor. They are the doctors he regards very highly, so he wanted them to be updated.

That evening, I didn’t have any further communication. The next day, I got an update from Milica that he had already started working that evening, sending messages, responding to people, and giving instructions to some others. Our people in Shirdi, Mookambika and Guruvayurappan, conveyed their concern and love for him and that the prayers had been done. The main priest of Shirdi Sai Baba temple in Shirdi, Sulakhe Maharaj, said something very sweet. He said, “Please tell Mohanji that he’s doing so much good work for people in the world. Their love, affection and gratitude are what is working like armour for him.” He said he would personally start offering his prayers for Mohanji. I updated Mohanji about this. He thanked me and said there was no need for them to do anything out of the way, but I am very grateful for what Sulakhe Maharaj and others have said.

To sum up everything, I would say Mohanji’s key lessons from this are:

  1. Acceptance. I had not known that he had had this accident. If somebody had chosen not to tell me that Mohanji had this accident which could have been life-threatening, if circumstances were otherwise, there would have been no way for me to guess that something so major had happened.
  1. No stopping. I chose not to ask him questions and discuss other work matters for a couple of days. There were various projects that we were discussing when I left for my flight from Dubai, so I tried to keep it on hold for a few days, but that conversation started again on Monday. As far as he is concerned, the accident was like a temporary distraction, and it made absolutely no difference. Milica sent me some pictures of his activities on Sunday. I saw him playing with the dog in the house, and he was watching some cycling race or some expedition. He was open about walking. So, practically, if someone did not know that all of this had happened, there was no way they could have guessed.
  1. Pain but no suffering. He told me on Monday that his chest was still hurting. If he was stationary, it didn’t hurt that much, but if he was moving, laughing or talking, it gave him a little discomfort. Doctors told him it would take one or two weeks for that to subside. He also said one of the doctors had told him that normally, for an impact like this, at this speed and this level of collation, and the airbag activated fully, this could have led to a cardiac arrest, so it was a miracle that he was alive. The doctor was both surprised as well as very grateful. He said it should take him another week or ten days for the situation to come close to normal.
  1. Focus on purpose. Some people attribute the accident to various reasons, negative forces, this and that — in all of these cases, his response was to dismiss that line of thinking completely. Of course, many things in this world are possible. But he didn’t encourage that line of thinking — “this might be why this happened. That could be why this happened.” He just said, “Nevermind. This is not important. Focus on what needs to be done.” This is typical of Mohanji, but in this case, in what could have been a life-threatening situation, he lives his teachings.
  1. No attachment to the physical body. When Milica sent me the pictures, I told her that here everybody was worried about him having pain in the heart, and this man was walking around, seeing people cycle, enjoying, observing that — this cannot be a normal person’s reaction. Everything that we see is far away from who Mohanji is, and we may not really understand who he is. It’s quite clear that he is not the physical body. What he does and is, and what we see as the physical body, are two very different things. His physical body is a very small portion of what he is in a position to do.

Experiences with Mohanji, India 2022 – Part 2

By Linda Abrol, Netherlands

After being diagnosed with a life-threatening autoimmune disease, I miraculously and rapidly ended up in an Ayurvedic hospital in Kerala by a renowned Indian-Swiss doctor: Dr George.

I had a difficult time practising Kriya. My mind was even more busier than at home, and at home, it was extremely turbulent in my head. It is not related to a certain amount of work. It is always busy in my head. I would say that it is related to my digestive system. I noticed years ago, for example, that concentration in meditation would prove a challenge after eating pepper, even black pepper. 

Coffee or strong tea would make my mind race like a rollercoaster. And nowadays, even while avoiding these things, I can’t get my mind in an off-mode most of the time. And I notice that my digestive system is getting more and more sensitive with ageing. Especially here in India, where the food preparations are totally different than at home, I notice my mind is getting in overdrive despite the two or three massages and the homas and yoga every day. I have no duties here. I am being pampered like a princess, still feeling so restless. 

So, while sitting in silence for a while after the Kriya practice this morning, I found my head almost bursting with activity that made no sense at all. I was feeling somewhat hopeless. The noises of the environment didn’t help much either. A stone factory was located at a neighbouring plot, and the work started exactly during my Kriya timing (I had to change my timing twice, for they seemed to start earlier every day). I made one last attempt to experience some peace. I connected to Mohanji’s Shiva-Silence. As I read in one of his blogs, I visualised his Shiva form in and all around me, including all the vibhuti in his hair that appeared one day in India. 

Vibhuti (Holy ash) flowing from Mohanji’s head

I mentally took one step backwards. I became aware of my awareness. This works sometimes. But it doesn’t work all the time. I think it is grace that makes it work. But this time, I suddenly reached another dimension from one moment to the other. I became almost totally thought-free. It was as if my mind slowed down from 200 km an hour to 3 or 4 km. Sounds were not outside of me anymore. I had disappeared. Everything was within me but not disturbing me at all. If I must describe what was left of ‘me’, I would say that I was a slow-moving wave. Empty and full at the same time. No mind, no desires, no fears, no nothing. Just peace. A fluid kind of peace. Everything was within me. And clear. No question to be answered. The words ‘Thuriya state’ kept coming up a few times. Thank you, Mohanji!

After a few more cleansing massage therapies, my mind started getting calmer and calmer. Negative thoughts and ‘to-do thoughts’ would disappear almost completely. Between therapies and homas, I enjoyed translating the second half of ‘Miraculous Days with Mohanji’ to Dutch, which I was able to complete at the end of my stay. In this way, I stayed connected to Mohanji all the time. And to Rajesh, the author, who wrote this amazing and easily accessible mixture of deep spirituality, true faith and devotion, miracles and humour. Actually, what I did was work, and work was, of course, discouraged while in the clinic, but for me, it was mainly relaxing, so I simply didn’t call it work.

Shortly after the treatments had started, I had a strong feeling: your blood is ok now. This was strange because nothing had really happened. The therapists were only preparing my body. ‘We make the body weak at first, and then the toxins will be released much more easily.’ But somehow, the thought released the feeling of being sick. The mental identification with sickness seemed to have been replaced by: I am fine, and the body is under construction

In hindsight, the rest of the ‘retreat’ as I would now call my stay became a pleasant holiday with occasional awkward massages, but that was quite manageable. It soon became clear who resonated with whom, and two weeks before my departure Christiane and then Thuliya arrived. Two soul sisters – that’s what I would call them. Outside, the rain was pouring down, and the atmosphere inside was getting warmer and cosier. Whereas in the first detox week, I still had all sorts of mealy-mouthed detox thoughts leaking out of the depths of my being along with the toxins (Nobody likes me. I say all the wrong things. I am nothing, uninteresting, lonely. Very stupid (and the worst): You let yourself be spoiled and pampered like this. It really proves that you are useless to society. That last one came from very deep and insidiously stuck in my mind and definitely came from a previous life. 

A seer once told me about a previous life as a rich English daughter, in which I really had nothing to fight for or live for. Everything came flying, so to speak. I felt so bored and useless that I became ill and died at the age of twenty-five. Hence the feeling of being spoilt was a threat to me rather than a blessing. And hence, probably, my severely useless feeling as I spent the last six years rehabilitating from whiplash and then a broken shoulder tendon. And that is probably why I was so happy when Mohanji made me feel useful again! 

In this life, I love to serve people. The feeling of being able to add value to the world after a long rehabilitation period, to have a purpose again! Old traumas create beliefs. Suppose ‘dying of uselessness’ from the previous life has become a belief – deeply rooted in my subtle body, then it is logical that the past ‘useless’ rehabilitation period reflected and triggered that belief in my system: you are useless now, so you will die. A life-threatening disease was born. 

I realised that this whole issue was a mental detox, and I let it run its course but did not identify with it. I looked at it as an observer, a witness, without suppressing the feeling, and I spoke casually about it. Together with my openness about the inner mess to other guests (patients sound so sickly), their hearts opened up to me, and some of them left their Swiss unintelligible German behind for a while to include me in the conversations. Apparent indifference towards me at the start quickly changed to – I immediately saw that you were something special. And: I’m going to miss you very much when you go home. 

So, not only did the company of the other guests become very warm and pleasant but also my body soon felt calmer, much better than at home. When Dr George went back to Switzerland after eleven days, he said to me: ‘It’s nice to see someone who is always smiling.’ And the smile came from within. Not the scared, bare-toothed laugh. (My inner voice once said that when I used to laugh my teeth out, I was actually afraid. I can now see the truth of that).

Every day, I realised how special it was that I was there in that hospital and how, since I have known Mohanji, everything has actually accelerated. And how strange it was that I meant it when I said: ‘I have a feeling this is going to heal, even though officially there is no cure for it. And if not, I’ve had a nice life. I have nothing to lose.’ Of course, I have a lot to lose, but underneath there is a quiet undercurrent. I can’t even call it acceptance. And it has nothing to do with my head. It just is. And then again, I think: how special is it that after one year with Mohanji, I have made such huge leaps in all areas of existence. Like a ‘blossom’ that bursts open and releases the fluff. 

Every evening, I would wave goodbye to the people who were going home. Even though it was night, I liked to make sure that no one left on their own. I myself left at a reasonable time on 30 August and was waved off warmly by the doctors and by my new friends, Christiane and Thuliya. Now, I will have to wait two months to have my blood checked in the hospital at home, and everyone is curious about the results.

Herewith, part 2 of this testimonial comes to an end. This whole wondrous experience was staged and guided by Mohanji’s grace from the initial shock of the very beginning to the wonderful and surprising end of an adventurous and unexpected extra journey. More on that later in parts 3 and 4.

My destiny with Mohanji – Part 1

Aditya Nagpal, India

How it started

Before meeting Mohanji in December 2013, I felt as if nothing was in place. I did not have a job, had relationship problems, and had bad habits. However, I was attending the Power of Purity meditation regularly in Bangalore. That gave me reasonable peace of mind in difficult times.

Soon, Preeti Duggal invited me to meet Mohanji at her place for meditation and satsang. When we opened our eyes after the meditation, we saw Mohanji sitting right in front of us. This was the first time I saw Mohanji. There was something different there, something I had never felt before. 

Being unfamiliar with spiritual words at that time, the only thing I remember from the satsang was that Mohanji looked into my eyes for a brief moment. I will never forget that eye connection. The shift started happening there. I did not realize it then, but now I fully acknowledge and know what he did when I look back. That was the initiation I received, and I am eternally grateful to him for that. After the satsang, we all received Shaktipat from Mohanji.

I wanted to share certain personal things with him and was called to his room after the satsang. I sat looking at Mohanji, and I could not express what I wanted to share. I was extremely low in self-confidence and was afraid to talk to anyone. There was so much going on inside me, but I just could not say anything. But omniscient Mohanji knew what was going on. He told me to start doing some seva and meet him again after a year and tell him what transformation has happened. I followed it. 

During the early years (2014/2015), I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with Mohanji. I got Shaktipat from him many times. After some time, I started seeing changes in myself. My awareness about myself began growing, and I became aware of my habits and eventually gave them up without forcing anything. I started loving Mohanji and his teachings. I had found a path for myself. I was not very deeply connected to him (at consciousness level) at that time, but I had accepted him as my Guru and started to follow him fully. After a few months, I started seeing a huge change in my confidence and behaviour.  

Getting a job and moving to Hyderabad

I did not have a job for almost two years. I had lost hope. But after I started practising Mohanji’s meditations and after meeting him, I realized that there was nothing wrong outside, but the blockage was within me. All the negativity was sitting inside me. I was pessimistic, and Mohanji changed this. He eradicated my negativity, and it changed things for me externally as well. I became positive; I was not depressed anymore; I felt happy vibes most of the time without any reason. I gained confidence and got the job very soon after that. It was I who had blocked it. 

I settled quite well in the job in Hyderabad. Soon I was ready to conduct Meditations as suggested by Mohanji. But things took a dramatic turn, and my company crashed, and I was laid off. This was disastrous for me. I did not know how to react to this. But at that time, Mohanji already had an impact on me, and instead of crying over spilt milk, I accepted it and started looking for another job. 

It was a difficult time, but I felt Mohanji’s presence with me all the time. I often saw him standing in front of me and heard him saying, “Don’t worry! You have to live in Hyderabad for long. You will establish my base there.” These words came true eventually. 

I got another job within 10 days. I worked in this company for almost 3 years. I started Ammucare seva work in Hyderabad, and with his grace, new people started joining. My confidence grew immensely, and I also conducted yoga sessions in my company. This was a big transformation for someone who was afraid to talk to anyone. 

Test of faith

All was going great until a distraction happened. A known person whom I had met in Bangalore spoke ill of Mohanji. He had some bad experiences and blamed Mohanji for them. I became extremely angry as I loved Mohanji and never thought anyone could talk like this about him. When I met Mohanji in Bangalore, he asked me to ignore this. That meeting somewhat settled me down, but some distraction was sitting inside me. 

Another time somewhere in the middle of 2017, I had another experience that kind of distracted me. I went into a relationship and was swayed by it. I became emotional and was unable to connect to Mohanji and do his meditations. During one of my meetings with Mohanji in Bangalore, I told him that I was distracted and unable to meditate and connect to him. I did not tell him what exactly was happening with me, but he knew it and brought it up in our conversation. He said, “No, you are not distracted, I am always with you, and you are progressing.”

Then he told me to put a poster in my room and write ‘Body, Mind, Intellect, Ego and Soul’ on it and see how much I was connecting to my soul each day. He said no need to try and connect with me; just watch this daily. I followed it. I started watching it daily and contemplating on it, and it worked for me big time. I could clearly observe myself going through various emotions in my relationship. This helped me remain stable during that phase; I continued seva in Hyderabad. During this period, I was a little distracted, and even though I was following Mohanji with full dedication, I was unable to connect to him fully.

Turning vegan

After following Mohanji, I became a vegetarian in the early months. With his techniques, I became more aware of myself and could see the connection between food and my emotions, which turned me into a vegetarian. In 2018, as I continued practicing his techniques, I started to have the same feelings about milk products. I realized that whenever I ate something that had violence in it, it had a negative impact on me. This turned me into a complete vegan.

Sai and Mohanji

During the period when I was unable to connect to Mohanji fully, I got deeply connected to Sai Baba. It can’t be a coincidence that my first visit to a Sai Baba temple was with Mohanji in Bangalore. Soon I became a frequent visitor to Shirdi, and I loved that place and its energy. Every visit to Shirdi gave me something. 

I also started doing Ammucare seva in Shirdi. I was connecting deeply to Sai, which was extremely transformative for me. I had some wonderful experiences in Shirdi. I also used to follow Mohanji with full dedication, but there was some barrier to the physical form. Maybe I was not completely ready for a living Master. 

On one of my visits to Shirdi when Mohanji was there, I thought I would miss the chance to meet Mohanji. But his plan was different. In the evening, after having some snacks in a café, I started walking towards the main Sai temple, and suddenly I heard a strong voice. It was something like ‘Meet Mohanji tomorrow and then leave’. This was so strong that I cancelled my bus trip immediately and stayed back to meet Mohanji. The next day, I had a short but wonderful meeting with Mohanji. 

During our conversation, Mohanji asked me, “What did Baba say to you?” I replied impulsively, “Baba told me to meet you.” He laughed at it. After this meeting, I started seeing and feeling some kind of oneness between Sai and Mohanji. It was something like after every visit to Shirdi, and after worshipping Baba, my connection with Mohanji would become stronger. It was as if Baba was pushing me towards Mohanji. Baba was telling me that Mohanji is your Master; go to him. I still had some physical barriers in my mind. But one thing I was sure about, my connection with Mohanji was becoming stronger.

Inevitabilities

By Cathy Johnston, UK

October 2019, a low point in life, inevitably led me to the one possible place in which to unearth the real skills required, to face the cruellest of tsunamis that were gradually creeping forward to engulf my Mum. A pivotal point in the tapestry of my entire existence, the one single jewel in the crown of my story, nowhere else before this place ever really existed, nor, for that matter, mattered at all.

At that lowest of lows, when I’d reached the stage where I could no longer look up, destiny brought me to a meeting with Mohanji at a mountainside retreat in Serbia. This was the day my real life unwittingly began. Little did I know, at that most confusing and perplexing of times, how much I would grow to depend upon wholly and deeply love this complete and utter stranger.

However painful the experiences before my meeting with Mohanji, nothing compared to the inevitability of saying the longest of goodbyes to Mum. I always knew this would be the hardest wrench in my life, and yet! Miraculously (others have observed), I have this newfound inner strength shining forth as I feel this power emanate, this cope-ability with the full security of safely being ‘held’.

I am never alone and feel him whenever I wish. He is my forever constant, my always ‘there’. He’s in my every teardrop; he soothes my weary brow. When my chest heaves and sighs, he’s in it. Holding my hand that’s holding my Mum’s, guiding the right words of comfort when confusion engulfs her, tormented in grief.

Words fail to do justice to the inexplicable and profound showers of grace delivered by Mohanji and the palpable guidance I’ve genuinely felt and feel as I write. Unconditional love can only be experienced to comprehend fully; that the love we’ve believed to receive whilst living this mortal life doesn’t come close to the ocean-deep love of a benevolent God.

Mohanji’s simple yet profound practices have brought steadiness to the uncertain waves of the dramas of life. Chanting his name during moments of broken sleep, I can lull myself back to a dreamy slumber, enabling my spirit to face the surprises of the new dawn ahead.

Because of Mohanji, I’ve learned to appreciate these precious moments, alone with Mum, as I hold her beautiful, artistic little hands in mine, hands that brought joy through her paintings and strokes of her erudite pen.

As I stroke her gorgeous, silken, grey hair, realising that this, this moment, this here and now, is a real chance to ‘be’ love, to ‘show’ love and to fully ‘know’ love with the very best friend I’ve been so lucky to have, on this journey called life.

How privileged I am to be able to help Mum in her greatest time of need. How lucky is she, with Mohanji in the wings, guiding her away from the inevitable pains of her drawn-out end. As harrowing and distressing as these moments could seem, I have him to come home to; to nourish my being.

Skanda Vale and London – Part 3

June 2022

On Friday, I got a ride from Selma to the BE YOU event in St Albans, near London. Nico and Sita rode along with two Swamis from Skanda Vale. Again we felt carried and pampered by Mohanji during every part of the trip. The hotel was surrounded by greenery, and I was grateful that it was outside the city.

We had a lovely get-together with Parvati on the terrace in front of the hotel. Sita told us that she had read that morning in Guru Subramaniam’s autobiography that he was an incarnation of Swami Brahmananda from the Ramakrishna order. She was incredibly surprised. In all the years she had known Guru Subramaniam, she had never heard anything about this. Swami Gopal had confirmed and is regarded as the incarnation of Sarada Devi, the wife of Ramakrishna. Therefore, a trip to the Ramakrishna ashram in Bangalore was usually a regular part of our annual trip to Swami.

Sita and I shared our enthusiasm about yet another synchronicity. It felt like it had come full circle. I had still not fully understood my connection with and attraction to Skanda Vale and thought about it from time to time. Even when I said goodbye inwardly to Guru Subramaniam before leaving that same morning, I still didn’t understand how I had ended up in front of his picture in his ashram.

The next day in St Albans, I stood at the book table and picked up the book The Silence of Shiva. I asked Mohanji inwardly if he had a message for me and randomly flipped open the book. To my utter amazement, the first three lines I read told me that Guru Subramanian of Skanda Vale was the incarnation of Swami Brahmananda of the Ramakrishna order. This was too coincidental for words. Mohanji is not beside us. He is within us and all around us. He guides us in the smallest details of our lives. The incident made me feel even more embraced and supported by The Tradition.

During the weekend, I would sometimes sit and watch Mohanji give Shaktipat or sign books and bless items for people. He did everything with such intense attention that I loved to watch from a distance. To see him standing there so quietly and serenely, all in white, like a true Jesus with both hands raised to give the blessings, was a sight to behold.

When he was signing books, I saw a woman with a big pile coming. “In Silence with Mohanji”, the little booklet that I had written, was one of them. It wasn’t hard to see because it was the thinnest of all. Would Mohanji really sign it for her? I thought. What a blessing it would be to see him sign my booklet as if I still needed that confirmation as the crowning glory of my work. Something in me genuinely doubted that Mohanji was going to sign the booklet.

When he finally did it, it relaxed me and made me happy. The woman later told me, ‘When I gave the book to him, Mohanji said, “The woman who wrote it is also here. She is sitting over there,” and he pointed to you.’ That made me so happy. A little Satwic ego can do no harm, isn’t it? Mohanji knows what we need. Due to many extreme circumstances over the past six years, I had developed insecure feelings, and Mohanji leaves no stone unturned to re-empower me.

After the Consciousness Dancing session, we had a meditation, Blossoms of Love. During the meditation, all participants received Mohanji Energy Transfer (MET). I had not experienced this before. In my life, I had had many experiences with different kinds of healing power, but I was not prepared for the special effect of the MET. It was as if a small hole was drilled in my crown through which a tangible beam of light came in, into my head and torso. How does one feel light? I don’t know either, but that’s how it felt. And after the brief touch, the sensation lingered for a deliciously long time. An opening had definitely been created or accentuated. Thank you, Mohanji.

As I walked toward the event hall at one point, the thought came to me that every moment is meaningful and that we can make use of each moment to make a difference to someone. We had the possibility to not only receive Mohanji’s energy but also to give energy and attention. I did not know why this thought came to me. Surely we were in the middle of a program where everything was already organized?

When I walked into the room, a woman was sitting alone on a chair. I sat down next to her for a moment as she had my booklet on her lap. She told me she was going to have it signed. I asked her how she experienced the event because I didn’t know her, and maybe she was new. She told me that she had been informed by a friend and since her beloved dog had died only two weeks ago, she felt she had to come. I empathized with her. I know how it feels. And maybe someone else experiences it even more intensely.

Two tears rolled down her cheeks, and I literally felt her dog’s presence. He tried to give me a message by touching my left leg. I got an image of her dog licking her tears. My dogs have never done that, so it was not a familiar image to me. I asked, ‘What would your dog have done if he saw you in tears?’ Without hesitation, she said, ‘He would lick my tears.’ I said, ‘That’s exactly what he came here to do. I see it. And I feel that he is here.’ My hair stood on end, and I now understood why I had just thought of being open to offer help at any unexpected moment. Thank you, Mohanji!

A second chance to touch someone’s heart came when, after the event, I offered to distribute the leftover flowers to the attendees. Standing behind the book table was a kind lady. I asked her which flower she would like. I got to choose, she said. I tuned into her for a moment and chose the sunflower from the bouquet. She was moved because that had been her favourite flower since childhood and had a special meaning for her, another special moment that we both won’t forget easily.

At the airport, a friendly airport assistant guided us past all the long lines of people waiting. We had to wait near the gate, and a little later, Dirk van de Wijngaard, his wife Mina and Parvati arrived, also accompanied by an assistant. It turned out that they had booked the same plane. Our minds and hearts were already filled to the brim, but there was still room for more satsang, airport satsang.

Dirk was, as usual, full of stories which he shared in everlasting ecstasy and enthusiasm, and we were an eager audience. I especially loved the story about the angel-like picture of Mohanji, Dirk (on his knees) and Subhasree in Mohanji’s arms. A few rays of light touched the hearts of both Dirk and Subhasree and were living proof of their pure and unmatched devotion. I had been there when the picture was taken and felt the vibration of their love there and then.

Dirk confirmed that it was he who had given the ring to Mohanji as per the instruction of Sathya Sai and Shirdi Sai Baba, telling him in a dream: “Hey boy, get up and bring the protection ring to our son.” I had had an immediate strong notion at the restaurant that it must have been Dirk who was the giver of the ring when I heard Mohanji talking about it to Vijay, who sat opposite him at the table. At that time, it was not yet clear who exactly had been the giver. From where I sat, I heard only bits and pieces of the story. When Dirk confirmed my feeling and explained how the stones were connected with the planets, the sun and the moon and that the ring was actually meant for protection, I sighed with relief and felt that this was the answer to my prayer for protection for Mohanji!

Dirk and I have known each other for more than thirty years, and it was through his inspiration that I set up People’s Trust Zijdeverwerking. A foundation to support a Vocational Training Centre in the People’s Trust project for the poorest of the poor in Srimanahalli near Bangalore. Dirk always keeps popping up in our lives and is a blessed example of absolute, pure faith and devotion. Was it a coincidence that I was sitting right next to his daughter Parvati on the plane and that Dirk and Mina were sitting with Nico and Sita of all places?

The security officer at the airport wouldn’t let me proceed since she thought that some strange glow was seen on the scan at the heart level. I think I know what that glow was. The official asked me to remove my rudraksha mala. She thought that maybe the mala was causing the disturbance. But it wasn’t. Even without the mala, I was a suspect. Probably a Divine Thief lives in our hearts. Parvati had the same experience! She was even shown her scan by the official. And something strange and inexplicable was really clearly visible as a yellow-golden glow in her torso.

For me, it was, without doubt, the golden energy of Mohanji’s divine love that rendered our heart chakra charged with literally visible energy, that we carried home to deepen the integration of his love and served as a strong and steady base for ‘survival’ during the cleansing period that started right after we arrived home. But that is material for my next testimonial.

A warm heart full of gratitude for Mohanji and the lovely UK team, our new family. We felt carried by the warm welcome all the way from home and back. Flying to Manchester in the same plane with Mohanji and flying back with Dirk, Mina, Parvathi, Sita and Nico and feeling carried on the wings of love all the way. Thank you, Mohanji. Thank you, team UK! With all our love!

A safari of lifetimes with Mohanji – 2022

By Sandra Shankar, South Africa

The rush of pure adrenalin became a powerful magnetised trigger to prepare for the coming of an epic sunrise in Africa. The manifestation of a glorious ‘physical’ consciousness connection with his grace. Caldwell Hall Reimagined Rewired 2022 retreat in the Midlands with beloved Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji was finally happening. 

I was breathless with excitement at the prospect of meeting his wonderous hallowed physical form and bathing in his golden auric field. What I do experience INSIDE with Mohanji is a luminescent inky blue energy signature. Like the colour caught by the camera outside the windows in this picture taken during the retreat.

Evening satsang at the South African Caldwell Hall Retreat: Reimagine Rewired 2022 in the Midlands of KwaZulu Natal

On the OUTSIDE, we experience the golden hues resplendent in the next photograph. Mohanji was on safari at the time. Again, the camera catches the intensity of the colour spectrum we can see with our naked eyes. 

Can you imagine how much we miss since we cannot see the full-colour spectrum? So, belief in complete faith and absolute surrender is a must.

It did seem like the Continent of Africa had been dark for too long. Yet, in hindsight, there was detached awareness intermingled with the tantalising ambrosia of inexplicable joy too. Can one help but FEEL that indescribable shiver of excitement at the thought that our beloved Para Brahma was coming? My eyes close in wonderment. Here. Finally. Here.

Live the moment. Savour the moment. Enjoy the nectar of these moments fully. Don’t hold back, says our beloved Parabrahma ever so lovingly. Not missing a beat, I deep dive into his expanded universal presence without hesitation. Spontaneous, unbound and free. It feels like I just won VIP tickets to my favourite concert. Woohoo!

INSIDE. There was a lot happening. As most of us seasoned bhaktas already know, the churning starts long before we make it to the showgrounds. The ‘quickening’ results in inexplicable dreams, feelings, body aches and pains, thoughts and, at times, perplexing images from lifetimes past. For sure, Mohanji starts working on us long before we get in close proximity.

South Africa had one of the most damaging storms in years, and many lives were lost in the flooding, collapsed roads and deadly mudslides. Other utilities like water and lights were disrupted for the longest time. Yet that did not deter me from packing my bags and making the trip to meet my beloved Parabrahma, at Calderwood Hall, in the picturesque Midlands of KwaZulu Natal.

On the evening before leaving, I stood on my balcony, savouring the beautiful hues and textures of the beautiful evening. Staying so far away from the beloved Mohanji family gives one time to pause and reflect on the significance of Mohanji’s physical presence and value his PRESENCE without presence.  

My heartbeats quickened as I stood on the balcony gazing out at the richness of orange, gold and black hues in the steadily darkening skies. Then I admonished myself for acting like I was meeting my beloved Parabrahma for the first time. In fact, I always think he is here and everywhere at the same time. Isn’t he in the soft and gentle breeze? In the dancing rustling leaves? In the magnificent and mighty tree in front of me? The night sky dazzled with a splurge of diamonds that winked and waved mesmerisingly at me. They were alive.

I was completely enraptured by the splendour of nature around me. Then as my awareness kept expanding, I started to FEEL Mohanji in the softness of the wind moving through my hair, in the leaves, the inky blackness of the evening and the stars in the heavens. Here and everywhere at the same time. Thus, blissfully expanded, I lost track of time.

Undoubtedly, I experienced the power of Mohanji’s PRESENCE without a PRESENCE! Alive in every atom. I am still ‘mind boggled’ thinking this feels like being synched with the universal hum or ONENESS of creation. Did I need to stop and think about connecting with Mohanji in his expanded form? No. I needed to FEEL it FULLY. That’s what happened.

In fact, one of the few words I exchanged with Mohanji at the retreat was, “I FEEL you everywhere.” He replied, “I know.” I said, “I know you know.” To think so much was said in such a few sentences! As I write these words, I am still bedazzled by his unconditional loving grace, which allows me to glimpse his expanded state of consciousness. Then I think, I am that too! We all are that.

You can be reassured that our beloved Raja Yogi Mohanji is not just a physical being. He is effectively the OCEAN IN A DROP. It is humbling to have his divine grace protect and guide us on this epic journey to self-discovery. Truly, I am the dust beneath his lotus feet.

Mohanji says, “Those who have ‘eyes’ will see.” I think to myself. I see and feel. How blessed am I to be born here and now? When I think I cannot love Mohanji more than I already do, he takes us to even deeper depths of bliss state! Only possible with Mohanji. One knows to expect nothing because we are on the most thrilling rollercoaster ride of our lives, experiencing entire lifetimes in varying phases of karmic completion. 

All we have to do is let go of limiting concepts and acknowledge the karmic cyclic patterns that trap us in a web of deceit. To me, that means having the courage to surrender everything at his lotus feet and walk away, not looking back. It takes sheer guts and the heart of a lioness to do that. SURRENDER. No sweat, I do that spontaneously with Mohanji.

At the retreat, there were a string of supercharged experiences which I will expand upon in point form as follows:

Conscious Infinity Walk

As we walked in a single file chanting the Mohanji Gayatri mantra, the energy accelerated, and I felt like I was pulling two heavy ropes. I had to heave and tug, and suddenly it felt weightless. It was as if Mohanji was synchronising everyone’s energy. We were all encapsulated in a supercharged energetic flow. It was invigorating. Transcendental. Fierce.

Conscious Dancing

Milica was amazing as she led us through the prep and explained how to flow in dance through the songs. The combination of song and dance was intoxicating. I was lost from the get-go. My body took on mudra postures, and new dance moves faster than I ever thought was possible. Hahaha. When the Shakti song came up, my body bent into a blissed-out ‘C’ shape …backwards! Mohanji’s energy came in waves and degrees of intensity. 

Sometimes it was so intense I felt bound in a place, unable to move. I can’t remember much as I was lost in the rapture during the various melodies. Music is a brilliant conduit for higher frequencies and takes us quickly into altered states of consciousness. It was surely a state of transcendental bliss – A true rasa leela. 

Shaktipat

All I remember was that as Mohanji gave shaktipat, my body was encapsulated in energy. It felt as if Shiva and Shakti were being balanced. My body reverberated with the flow of energy that his grace delivered as much as I could receive. The ‘feminine divine’ flowed majestically. Our beloved Parabrahma gives us as much as we can handle. I was told my shaktipat took an unusually long time. Humbled and ever grateful knowing how great a blessing it is to be blessed by his grace. So caught up in my own world, I did not pay much attention to those who reacted as entities left them or were caught up in the rapture like myself.

Book Signing and Blessing of Somarka Coherent Water Tubes (aka Analemma Water Stick in Europe) & Beads

As Mohanji energised the water tubes, continued to sign my books, and energised the beads, I found my hands raising my Somarka living water tubes (Analemma water Stick) slowly in an altered state above Mohanji’s head. ‘Living water’ on its own boosts our operating frequency by 300%. 

Can you imagine the consequences of Mohanji further energising already supercharged water in its original state? Mind-blowing right? Whenever I energise my water with my Somarka water tube (Analemma Water Stick), my hand reverberates with energy. When I drink it, my body hums even louder.

Water is a pure medium that carries the highest frequencies in nature, thereby allowing Mohanji to work more expediently across all our energy sheaths. Now can you imagine its effect on a human body which is 98% water-based? Just mind-boggling.

I am raising my Somarka Coherent Water Tubes (Analemma Water Stick) in an expanded state after Mohanji energised them

These are purely superfluous movements in reaction to being so close to Mohanji.

Miraculous Aid & Recovery after Puncture

This is the story about how our beloved Mohanji’s divine leela played out. Before leaving home, I had put Bhagavan Satya Sai’s ashes on four of my tyres to ensure all was well regardless of what could happen on the long journey to the retreat. The roads were really bad after severe storms lashed the country that week. It was the fourth day. It was the end of the 2022 Caldwell Hall Retreat in the Midlands, and everyone started leaving. 

Revona had spotted that one of my car’s tyres was flat earlier and asked Yash to tell me. Shocked at our predicament, I wondered briefly how to handle the situation. As I looked up, Mohanji was also getting ready to leave the resort. There was no fear, just logical reasoning in my head about how to handle it expediently. 

Suria and Lenny are new Mohanji family members from the north coast of KwaZulu Natal. Lenny had written a beautiful English song dedicated to Mohanji. He played his guitar and helped us practice. By the time Mohanji walked in, everyone was in full flow. Baba loved it and said it must be recorded and sung all over the world. Just wait till you all hear it!

Returning to my predicament, Suria came to me and said not to worry; her husband Lenny has an electric air pressure tyre pump which would get the tyre back to normal and allow me time to get to a garage to fix it. Yash gallantly remained with us to ensure we were ok and left late too. Mohanji ensured we were loved and cared for during this predicament as he does throughout our innumerable lifetimes with him. How perfectly exquisite is that?

The tyre pressure remained constant during the three-hour ride home with my fun, divinely gifted, gorgeous cousin Nirvana Singh. It was still fine the next day when we went to get the tyre fixed. They found a big metal nail in it. 

Thinking back, our beloved Suria and I connected instantly during the retreat. I could clearly see the hand of grace making all these vital connections with loving family members integral to the speedy resolution of the problem. They were unknowingly complicit in the creation of a miraculous leela that saved the day. Nirvana and I drove home incident-free. Just WOW! 

Mohanji does not have to be present in his physical body to create miracles. The retreat was over, but Mohanji’s grace wrapped us in an invincible shield 24/7. It is easy to be fearless and flow with spontaneity knowing my beloved Para Brahma’s got my back.

One thing I know for sure is that we are all connected through lifetimes through his grace. Regardless of where we live, we are all complicit in Mohanji’s grand play on a global scale. 

His grace is the unconditionally loving hand that deals out the cards. Our simple, unassuming master and friend of the Universe is the greatest living miracle the rest of the world has yet to see. 

Those who feel him know enough to be IRRESOLUTE, FEARLESS and FREE. We will never let him go knowing that Mohanji, in turn, never leaves us. Those who do, leave without understanding the 360-degree cosmic consciousness at play. 

Knowing is understanding!

We are aware. We are SELF-aware. We are ONE.

I am MOHANJI. MOHANJI is me. There is no separation.

I am unshakable.

Gratefully yours

By Maja O, Ecuador

Dear Ones, this is a humble attempt to recollect some moments on my journey with Mohanji as an expression of gratitude for all that I have been blessed with. As I am reluctant to write, I dare do so only because I was propelled to do it during my meditation. I surrender it fully to my Gurudeva Mohanji’s lotus feet.

I met Mohanji in 2010, on his first visit to Belgrade. I was invited to meet him by a dear cousin of mine whom I respected deeply. The reunion was held at Toma’s place, and a small group of people gathered and listened to the satsang. During the discourse, my ego kept judging Mohanji’s words as if testing him based on my previous spiritual experiences that I considered significant. My final verdict was that this man speaks the truth and has experienced it. But it was only from the mind/intellect level that I approached Mohanji, as the ego did not allow a deeper connection.

A couple of days later, we had a big satsang with Mohanji, to which he came directly from his wedding in a different city in Serbia. (To be honest, I don’t quite remember clearly whether this particular experience happened in this event, but it did happen, and I relate it to this occasion, though in full honesty, my memory is not clear, and it might have happened later on.)

In any case, even before knowing that Mohanji had arrived at the venue, in my heart, I felt bright light emanating in joy upon feeling Mohanji’s presence. It was screaming with overwhelming happiness: “Finally!” I was taken by surprise when I looked at my chest and asked: “Ok, I seem to be very happy to meet him. But who are you, and where have you been hiding so far?” My soul was silent. It cared not for my mind’s chattering.

Before Mohanji left Serbia on his first visit, I made a mental request to him. We were lined up to receive Shaktipat, and when it was my turn, I looked at him and asked him in my mind to resolve my current situation. Back then, I was struggling a lot to get a job, and I had a lot of family and health issues. For years I was trying to find any job abroad, that I thought would be the solution, and even though I kept knocking on many doors, they remained closed.

Needless to say, he delivered even more than what I had asked for. Some four months later, I was in Mexico, on the Caribbean, selling diamonds. I did not have to chase this opportunity; it landed effortlessly in my lap. This experience not only helped me regain my strength and confidence, but it was also the beginning of my living abroad.

Living abroad also meant not being able to see Mohanji often. However, whether I was aware of it or not, he has always been with me. Our connection is also reflected in the lives of my family members, and I will briefly relate the two most important events. When my mother was about to pass away, Swamiji Bhaktananda kindly accepted to do a Mai-Tri for her.

Through him, I found out that Mohanji was with my mom at the moment of transiting. With his grace and her good deeds, she was able to attain liberation from the birth-death cycle, that she would no longer be reincarnated on Earth. Her soul had moved to higher realms as she continued her journey to complete dissolution. I had a close relationship with my mother, and after hearing Swamiji’s words, I could not hold back the tears of deepest gratitude overflowing from me.

Every time I think of it, I have tears of joy. It was as if Mohanji fulfilled one of my biggest wishes, and whenever he reminds us to think of what we should be grateful for in our lives – I think of this. Even as I write this now, my heart wants to explode as tears roll down in gratitude and joy.

Another event is related to my father’s car accident. He was in his 70s and was driving really slowly on a very fast inter-city road. Another car at full speed hit him from behind, and as he flew up in the air, the car turned and landed on the ground upside down. The old, small Peugeot was completely demolished. My dad had just a small scratch on his leg. He was completely fine, other than being in shock. He was fully aware that it was divine grace that had saved him, as it is a complete miracle to walk out unhurt from such an accident.

It was clear to me that it was Mohanji’s divine hand that was holding my father as he was flying in the air. I also knew that it would be hard for my family to accept and believe in it. This reminds me of how little I personally am aware of the things Mohanji does for me every day, even beyond this time and space. 

I’d also like to write about a challenging period when I was about to see Mohanji and attend his programs after five years of not being in his physical presence. The first hit ended up at a very low frequency where my body was in pain, my ego was hurt, and my mind was blaming Mohanji for it. I was even considering cancelling my participation. But luckily, as soon as my mind and ego rebelled, I asked myself how do I really feel about it. My soul saved me by giving me a message that I would regret it for the rest of my life if I didn’t go. It was the only answer that mattered, and I proceeded with my plans ignoring all the nagging of my mind in the background.

Once in Serbia, I was unpleasantly surprised. Certain friends of mine who used to be deeply connected with Mohanji since day one were no longer with him and were telling me untrue stories about him. I was not expecting this. Their words confused me, as I could clearly see that they believed in their own stories, and yet I was unable to come to terms with their words and who Mohanji really was through my interaction with him.

I feel gratitude for the blessing that came through a new friend whose one simple sentence cleared the sky and made room for me to breathe the fresh air of truth again. Upon asking Mohanji about it, mainly about how could it be that these people truly believed the negative things they were saying, which was untrue, he simply said that we all have our weaknesses and should be alert and aware.

I feel love for these people, and I did not feel anything negative towards them. I just see them confused and am praying they will be blessed with more clarity and that they will come out of it with the least possible karma for them. And in this context, it is useful to remember how Mohanji always reminds us to trust our own experiences and not the opinions of others.

So finally, I was able to reach the retreats and face Mohanji’s constant poking. I was not the least upset because of it, as I was aware that Mohanji is pure love, but the truth was that I had come with some resistance. By the end of the retreats, he cleared this completely and placed deep devotion in my heart. What surprised me about the programs was how different they were from past ones. Before, he used to be physically present with us almost all the time, and we would go through constant experience sharing together.

Nowadays, he makes us connect more to his consciousness so that we are not attached to his physical body. Another difference I noticed was the clear increase of power that was emanating from him. My impression was that it had to do with the ceremony of bestowing the Brahmarishi title to Mohanji when Avadhoota Nadananda transferred his spiritual powers onto Mohanji. The great Masters were showering him with blessings even without him asking for it.

Before, we received Shaktipat every so often at the programs (or at least that was my impression). But this time, we had to wait till the end of the retreat. I remember the guy on the bus sitting next to me, enthusiastic about it as we reached the tunnels Ravne in Bosnian Pyramids: “Wow, it’s coming! We gonna receive it! Finally! Shaktipat!” I have to admit I couldn’t help thinking: “Why is he getting so excited about it; what’s the big deal?” But I did not say anything to my fellow friend.

However, once the Shaktipat commenced, literally a volcano started erupting from within me, and it wouldn’t stop. Only Mohanji knows what got burned in that sacred fire of Shaktipat. And it was yet another reminder for me to not be so easily judgmental and to respect deeply every aspect of the Tradition as my understanding of it is so small and limited. 

One of the deepest transformative experiences I went through, thanks to Mohanji, was the Mai-Tri process and the Empowered program. It was through the Empowered program that Mohanji gave me stability, as well as the awareness through which states of fearlessness, silence and stillness, and thoughtlessness were made possible. It was as if he poured on us the blessings and grace needed for reaching our true selves, and all we had to do was follow his guidelines with dedication and merge into the consciousness so readily waiting for us.

Experiences of these states were important for me when working with Mai-Tri practitioners, as they assured deeper connection and surrender. I have gained much clarity, and so much of karma has been cleansed through the amazing practice of Mai-Tri given to us by Mohanji. I’d like to thank all of the practitioners who have worked with me. I am especially greatly thankful to the Mai-Tri practitioner from the USA, whose faith and full surrender to Mohanji have made this practice a completely transformative experience. Thanks to her, I have been given clarity on how much I have taken things for granted in my life and how high my expectations were instead of focusing on the blessings present here and now.

It is thanks to Mohanji that I can eat the most delicious food of grand variety, live in a house made of natural materials in the nature that I wished for, and have the opportunity to serve, which brings joy and meaning to my life, as it also cleanses my karma, have friends who are my true soulmates, and learn daily from the people and situations in my life.

I used to think that I was not receiving enough because I could not afford to go to the retreats and pilgrimages. I was shown that I have exactly what I need for my spiritual growth here and now. I’ll give just one simple example. The Mai-Tri practitioner explained to me the attitude that I lack and need to develop in this lifetime, which would bring an important transformation in me. The very next day, I received a voice message from one of my best friends, who is the epitome of these qualities. She wholeheartedly expressed all those previously mentioned by the practitioner.

My Guru was right there in front of me, and it was not by mere chance that we call each other soul-sisters and that we regularly thank each other for all the valuable lessons. And all the people of the place where I live have also taught me and have changed me, of which I now have more understanding and appreciation. In short, Mohanji has provided the perfect conditions that were needed for my particular spiritual growth. Gratitude opens us up for receiving the grace which is definitely flowing to us in abundance. We just need to put the right glasses on (or remove the glasses of the mind) to see things properly.

This was just one aspect of what the connection with Mohanji can bring. A deeper one is found through silence. There’s much more, and this text does not do justice to all that I have received from Mohanji and the Tradition, but I wrote only about what came to me now. Mohanji urges us to share experiences for our own sake and for the possibility of inspiring others. So I thank you all who have read this, and I surrender it fully to my dearest Mohanji’s feet, to whom I owe everything. Eternally grateful for all the love and light you have blessed me with, Mohanji.

Deep desire fulfilled

By Supreet Bedi, Canada

I have been Sai Baba’s devotee for a good 21 years. My journey with Sai Baba started from Sathya Sai Baba. I was very young at that time and didn’t understand what the Tradition had blessed me with. Although I was with a living Master, I didn’t put that much effort into my relationship with my Master. Before I understood Baba’s stature, he left his mortal coil. 

With Mohanji in my life, I felt it was a second chance given to me. People used to travel from far places to see Sathya Sai Baba. While I was in India at that time, I didn’t put in the effort to go and see him. I did not understand why living Masters are so important. 

One day, sitting in my temple, I talked to Mohanji, and I said to him, “Mohanji, when you come to Canada, please come to our house and stay with us. I know you always say that there should be no expectations from Guru. This is my desire, but I am happy with whatever you decide. I have wasted the opportunity with Sathya Sai Baba, and I want to use this chance given to me with you to learn and grow.” 

After this conversation with him in the morning, I received a call from Sanjay bhaiya in the afternoon stating that he feels I should have Mohanji’s Padukas! Mohanji partially fulfilled my desire that day itself. Having Mohanji’s Padukas means having Mohanji in our house, living with us.

In August 2021, Mohanji came into my dream, and it seemed like he was in Canada while I, along with a few other people, were talking to him. All of a sudden, Mohanji said, “Let’s go to the Conestoga mall!” I replied, “Mohanji, I’m not sure if they’re open right now because the timings after Covid have become really short.” My dream ended there.

When I woke up, I realized the significance of the words “Conestoga mall” was to tell me that he is in the same city where I live. At that moment, I still hadn’t caught the real meaning. I thought he was telling me that he would come to Canada soon. Time passed, and finally, in March 2022, Mohanji came to Canada. I couldn’t even imagine that he would come to our home as the trip to Canada was very short. Yet, he proved me wrong by letting me know that he would come to our house. I was again in tears of gratitude and thanked Mohanji for his kindness. 

Mohanji had to go to British Columbia (B.C.) for a few days, so Mahesh bhai said that he was not sure when Mohanji would be able to come but perhaps, on 23rd March. I have a habit of asking Baba’s answers through little chits. Just to know when Mohanji was going to come, I made a few chits and placed them at Baba’s feet. The answer was 29th March. I did all the preparation for 23rd March but told my husband that Mohanji would not come that day. He will definitely come on the 29th. Later that day, Mahesh bhai explained how coming that day would not be possible and it would materialize only after Mohanji came back from B.C.

As I needed to arrange a day off from work, I asked Mahesh bhai when he thought Mohanji’s visit would be feasible. Mahesh bhai said he is not yet sure as Mohanji was unwell. I replied to him by asking him to convey to Mohanji not to worry about coming to our place as his health is more important, and I am very happy and content; he has already showered immense love on me.  

Mahesh bhai and I agreed that Mohanji would not come to our house. In the afternoon, Mahesh bhai called and said, Mohanji did not agree to it. He says I will go to her house; I will keep my promise; she has been praying for this for so long! So, the visit materialized on 29th March, just a day before Mohanji went to the USA. Although the visit was short, he fulfilled all my wishes and gave me immense contentment! I can never pay the debt of his infinite love.

Thank you, my Mohanji, for everything! Thank you for holding all your children so close to you! Koti koti pranams at your lotus feet.

Acceptance through dreams

I got connected with Mohanji in mid-2020, but I still had my tests through situations and dreams. Finally, I got accepted. I remember it was 20th June 2021 when I had an early morning dream. In that dream, I saw myself along with my younger daughter at a beach-like place. There was sand and water, along with some curtains with flowers in an open space. The wind was also blowing. It felt as if it was some kind of retreat, a dream of some sort of a festival. I saw Mohanji, and he allowed me to touch his feet. At the festival, I also saw Preethi Gopalarathnam (Mohanji Acharya from India). 

The dream ended here. I didn’t catch the significance. The same day, I came across a blog in which it was mentioned that touching Mohanji’s feet is a sign of his blessing and grace. At this point, there was no announcement of any festival. On 23rd July, a festival happened, to be precise, it was the “Festival of Consciousness.” It happened within 15 days of my dream, and guess what? Preethi had also travelled from India to Europe to attend the festival. Mohanji showed me this place to confirm that the dream was not just a dream but the truth. 

Thank you, Mohanji, for accepting me as your child. I will always be very, very grateful to you for your love, kindness, and compassion for all your children. You leave none longing for your love! Koti, koti pranams at your lotus feet.

Festival of Consciousness 2022 – Coming soon!
