Mohanji’s ‘Shiva dreadlocks’ – cut off today!

A last look at Shiva's dread-locks before they were removed. Clearly not the normal dreads that are seen everywhere!

Many of you may be aware that over the last couple of months Mohanji’s hair underwent a natural formation of two mighty dreadlocks (were visible from the back). During his recent stay in the US he went to a hair stylist who specializes in unlocking dreadlocks and this man was amazed – he said he never saw anything like it and that there is no way those two dreadlocks can be untangled!

In spiritual terms, twisted, matted ropes of hair (called dreadlocks) are known as a symbol of renunciation and spiritual stature, an expression of disregard for profane vanity.

Lord Shiva and his followers were described in the scriptures as wearing “Jataa”, meaning “twisted locks of hair”. According to the ‘Hymn of the longhaired sage’ in the ancient Vedas, long jatas express a “spiritual significance which implies the wearer has special relations with spirits, is an immortal between two worlds and the master over fire.”

In modern times, many people grow their dreadlocks out of fashion or cultural expression, using various methods and styles. However, in Mohanji’s case they formed naturally, certainly due to his Shivic energy – knowing Mohanji, I wouldn’t be surprised if more leelas occur in relation to the two dreadlocks now that they are cut off. We’ll certainly preserve them as a memento of his unique leelas…

With love, Biba

    Jai Gosai , i have taken diksha from Sri Sri Swami Dijeshanando
    Saraswati Ji (sri sri bijay Krishna Goswami) in year 1990.but previously I was neglecting Ista mantra. i am chanting guru mantra from last 1 yr and i can feel
    that guru is protecting me everywhere. but he is no more in this
    material world . The problem is i want to proceed in sadhan. it’s not for
    showing people or dominate anyone. i want to awaken my kundalini.

    from one person who claim that he has siddhi on all these mentioned and
    he has given everything to me. But whenever i try all these …
    feeling….no one came ….nothing happened. but he telling that
