A few years ago, Mohanji Canada hosted Devi Mohan at their Retreat. Mohanji Datta Tapovan Ashram, Canada, is set on a magnificent property amidst a wonderous sprawling natural landscape. As the first bhakta, Devi Mohan is such a pure instrument of Mohanji’s energy; and when Deviji dances, Shakti Maa dances; hence everyone was caught up in the rising frequencies of bliss.
During the dancing and singing of our beautiful Canadian bhaktas, which I was following closely, everyone called out to our Acharya Sanjay Mohanji to sing one of his beautiful songs dedicated to Mohanji. He and his brother had recorded one earlier that year.
He started singing “Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji, Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji, Mohanji, Mohanji, Mohanji, Mohanji…” and just like that, I slipped into bhaav state. I was lost in absolute love for Mohanji.
Tears rolled off my cheeks, but I did not notice. My body vibrated with a rising crescendo of energy. I was lost, lost in bliss. I sang and danced lost in the Rasa Lila of bhaav state. Bliss state. Mohanji, Mohanji, Mohanji …
It was after that experience that I understood the true significance of Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji. Parabrahma means Supreme Consciousness. Mohanji is found in every atom; he is here and everywhere. Mohanji is my very life-breath.
Parabrahma is a form of adoration and blissful recognition of who Mohanji really is – ‘Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji.’
It is a spontaneous expression of bhaav. It is a form of unconditional love. Sometimes when I write, when inspired by Mohanji, it is easy to just get carried away. The words just roll off the keyboard without any preparation or planning. Mohanji is a song that plays non-stop in my head no matter what I am doing. Chanting just takes my breath away.
Hence, from that point in time, my heart told me that this was the only way to address Mohanji in future. When I write ‘our beloved Parabrahma’ in social media posts, please know it is from a state of absolute bhakti for the ultimate ‘Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji.’ Simple. Pure and freely expressed.
Don’t we all have our own expressions of love for Mohanji? Father (Mohanji) always gently reminds us to BE ourselves. Just BE without the need to imitate, impress or direct others. For it is in our BEINGNESS that we enter the GOLDEN AGE!
When I had first joined the South African Mohanji family, we went to the Mohanji Ladysmith Retreat in KwaZulu Natal. The loving warmth and purity of the Mohanji Ladysmith bhaktas allowed me to experience my first state of bliss. The two shining souls we all know from Ladysmith are our beloved Lakshmi Mohan Ananda and Maheswari Mohanji.
Lakshmi had kept playing Lord Shiva’s Maha-mantra “Aum tryambakam yajaamahe sugandhim pushtivardhanam…” From the first moment I had heard the chant, explosive waves of rapture started building up in me. All I know was that I danced and/or floated to our beloved Parabrahma’s photograph on the stage and sang the end part of the song directly to him.
It was as if his photograph had come alive. I could see Mohanji laughing and smiling back at me.
In contrast to this world of endless limitations of the mind, the bhaav one feels is so natural, spontaneous and free. It is almost like I know my beloved Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji so well, from numerous other lifetimes. Although I recognise and love all Masters, I know irrefutably that I came to meet my beloved Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji in this life.
The Mohanji Peace Centres, Shirdi Temples and Mohanji Centers of Benevolence worldwide are going to change our lives forever. For the first time, we will be able to join like-minded people all over the world in peace and unconditional love. This is our ultimate expression of BEINGNESS. Mohanji came for this reason. Let us not waste a moment to be with him even though he is always with us in consciousness.
At your lotus feet beloved Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji!
