It was exciting to book my flights to Serbia. The opportunity to see Mohanji again after a few months was a beautiful blessing. My plan was to volunteer during the Acharya training in October and return. While looking at the flights, my husband said that if I stayed a little longer, I would be with Mohanji for my birthday. It was a great suggestion and having managed to get a few more days of annual leave from work; we booked the trip to include the weekend retreat after the Acharya training.
This was my first visit to Serbia and how beautiful it was. All the wonderful ladies of Mohanji Foundation Serbia made me feel very much at home with their loving hospitality. Despite the back to back programmes and hectic schedules, they made sure I was comfortable, and well looked after. The Acharya training was intense and amazing. We were all so blessed with wonderful experiences with Mohanji.
There was a gap of a day to travel to the venue of the retreat after the training, and my birthday fell on that day. Therefore, it seemed unlikely that I would see Mohanji, but I couldn’t be disappointed as we had all been with him for more than a week, enjoying his loving presence with us immensely.
Following a long drive, we arrived at the beautiful hotel where the retreat was taking place. After helping the team to set up in the satsang hall, I went to my room to shower and rest. A little while later, there was a gentle knock on the door, and it was Monika asking me to join the rest of the team upstairs.
Unknown to me, through my husband and a fellow Acharya from the UK, the team had found out it was my birthday. To my utmost surprise, there was a cake organised for me. Everyone sang and wished me a happy birthday, and it truly was! The unexpected joy of having Mohanji, Deviji and little Mila coming into the room to wish me happy birthday was just awesome!
Having a loving hug from Mohanji on my birthday was so very special. After touching his feet with love and gratitude, I verbalised a prayer that I have made to Mohanji many times in my heart – “Mohanji, please bless me to love you more and more each day.” Placing his hand gently on my head, he said, “Tathastu!” (So be it). That wonderful affirmation from Mohanji, and the gentle touch filled with so much love, gave me immense joy. Often, words are not enough to describe our intense feelings, and this was one such magical moment.
While Mohanji was talking with the team about the preparations for the retreat which was starting the following day, and listening to the conversation flowing around me, I sat near Mohanji’s feet, totally filled with love and gratitude. A birthday wish fulfilled in such a wonderful way, will be cherished forever. Whenever I remember Mohanji’s single word of a powerful blessing and the gentle touch on my head, I’m filled with so much love, comfort and peace. It was a promise to my heart that he will always be with me.
My heartfelt gratitude to the Serbian team for making my visit so beautiful, to Deviji and Mila for all the memorable times, and to Mohanji for his loving grace which he showers on us all, fulfilling wishes, even the silent ones that we express to him in our hearts.

I was praying to Baba for direction yesterday as I was a little disappointed and within 15 minutes with his grace he made me write down the lyrics of the song “Mere Mohan Mehar Kar” and thanks to Neelu who volunteered to make the video on such short notice.

Mohanji, The Avadhoota in Jeans, is all forms in one form, All masters in one form, All divinity in one form. Para Brahma ! He is our Adi Guru, the ultimate destination.

With deep reverence and gratitude, we offer this blog post as expressions of love from devotees across the globe as ‘Pushpanjali’ (offering of flowers) at Mohanji’s lotus feet.
All mountains soar but one soars above the rest. So too are my experiences with Mohanji. Let me record the most cherished one. “More than 40 years back, I had the unique privilege of being initiated into japa yoga by my Guru who was an exalted master. He told me very clearly, “if you stay loyal to this path and tread steadfastly, your Parama Guru will come in search of you.” Little did I realise then, the significance of this powerful message. But in the course of my journey, I used to reflect on His words often, praying and hoping that the Parama Guru that He talked about may come in sukshma (subtle) and not sthula (physical) form. Even after coming into contact with Mohanji, I didn’t realise this until recently that my eternal Parama Guru has indeed arrived! True masters’ words never fail.
With Anantha koti pranams at my Parama Guru’s feet
A Soul who has no Birth and no Death is unshakable as a Guru, whom we all have in the form of Mohanji.
Birthday wishes to dear Father Mohanji who is there for all of us always, every moment. On this auspicious day, I wish that may He keep on guiding us on the golden path, our thoughts and actions always and for ever.
My sincere Pranams. With deep reverence and love I wish you a very “Happy Birthday” and a big “THANK YOU.” Please keep your grace on us always and let us rest at your lotus feet eternally. Every single day is an experience for me with you and I know you are watching us and I have no words to describe my gratitude for all that you have given us. There are times when I fall back and I don’t do things as you have said, but I have always felt you pull me back and put me on track .
I have composed a small poem in your memory dear Mohanji. Please allow me to give it to you on this happy occasion .
Journey in time
I was a wandering soul until we met
The time stood still as our eyes met
I felt the divine in you as I wept
Day and night as I slept
I couldn’t describe love before
But you showed me love and more
I didn’t know what I was meant to be
But you sent people to help me
I went up and down as days passed by
You gave me strength and asked me to fly
I was lost in thoughts most of the time
You showed me how my doubts were as bitter as lime
Lord Krishna was Arjuna’s charioteer in the battle of Kurukshetra. The Parthasarathy.
Blessed are we to have Mohanji as our divine charioteer in this lifetime. Surrendering the chariot of life to him, handing over the reins, we do the things we have to do, meet the challenges we have to, love and share, fight our battles, group and depart, just the way life wants us to. Harmony outside, harmony within, liberation a reachable goal with Yogiraj Parahbrama Mohanji holding the reins and leading!!
Pranams Father. Wishing you a wonderful birthday. May you be blessed with good health and happiness always. Thank you for holding my hand when I thought all was lost. You gave me a purpose to live post retirement. Deep gratitude for everything. Love you.
It brings me immense happiness and at the same time my heart is overflowing with gratitude for your coming into my life, and I have reached a stage that every breath of mine exhaling out is only because of your utmost grace.
ON THIS GLORIOUS DAY I WISH YOU MANY HAPPY RETURNS OF THE DAY
I cherish his friendship the most. I have never called him “Father,” nor will I ever be able to, like most people do.
I cherish the way he explains the most complicated things in a simplistic, hilarious, story telling method. Being in his presence, we learn to shed our ego and open our hearts in acceptance.
He is probably the most ‘peoples’ person’ in the Spiritual Genre, with no frills and tantrums. His “Down to Earth” persona, breaks the common perception of a modern-day Guru, who people identify with a particular dress code or a particular mannerism. As he always says, “I am You,” and one can perceive the depth of these three words, when one surrenders with absolute faith.
Humble pranams at your lotus feet. Wishing you a very happy and blessed birthday and a year ahead. Immense gratitude for everything that you have done and are doing for us. Pray we live up-to your teachings, your grace and protection always be with us and we never leave your hand.
How can we ever fully comprehend the infinite blessings of being connected to a Sat Guru of your stature? How can we ever feel enough gratitude? How can we ever qualify ourselves to assist in your mission? It is only with your grace that we can even make an attempt. It is a great blessing and privilege to be connected with you and I wish that your birthday, which we cherish and celebrate, is just one pearl in a long string we are allowed to witness.
Congratulations and may your mission grow in the world as well as in our hearts ️
Mohanji, a few words is not enough to describe You. However, to sum it, I will say that You are God’s gift to humanity in general but especially to those who want to know the truth of existence. Your sincerity, simplicity and selflessness are really signs of a true Guru. Jai Mohanji.
I enjoy more and fear less. I witness life occurrences with more faith and compassion and less (negative) emotions. This was only possible through your deep and clear teachings and more significantly, your example! Dear Mohanji, for your birthday I wish you joy and peace and in the years to come may many more honest seekers find their way to your light!
I see You as the Superstar of the spiritual world. Just as the stars are self illuminating and can light up the sky even in the darkest of nights, You dispel the darkness in our lives by leading us in the path of light and love.
On this auspicious day Mohanji, I would like to offer You my deepest gratitude in few forms:
Jai Mohanji. You held my hand tight and took me on the path of truth, awareness and to my original destiny. In every second, You are with me. Now I just can’t imagine my life without ‘My Mohanji.” You are my true Master. Long live Mojanji. Pranam.
Your presence in our lives is something that we cherish and value beyond what words can express. Your thoughts fill us with joy, innocence and gratitude. Your teachings give us purpose and clarity. We have experienced that love and faith in You gives us contentment and stability in life. We are eternally grateful for Your love, grace and blessings, today and always.
Happy Birthday Mohanji! My life has taken a total turn with Your presence. Instead of fears and sadness, there is an indescribable joy in my heart. Thank You for showing me the way to light and holding my hand at every step.
Love always and forever.
To put this into a few words is not at all enough. I feel so blessed to have You Mohanji in our lives. I don’t know what I did in the past to have the grace of You. I cherish You in my life because every time I get bogged down by negativity or negative thoughts I remember You and feel extremely lucky to have You in my life. You are the constant positivity in my life. You are my path and You are my destination. Thank You is a small word, I love You so much Mohanji.
You are the dispeller of darkness, the Lord of Compassion and Unconditional Love.
This is the transformation which happened in my Karmic family, for my dear husband, children and myself. Dark forces bled our happiness for several years. Light and Salvation in the form of Mohanji did away with our trauma. No words can describe the Feeling. Kriya and Your Path to Liberation …
With Deep Gratitude and Humility I bow at Your Feet. Jai Mohanji Baba.
I cherish You in my life because I can see Sathya Sai and Shirdi Sai in You to whom I am deeply connected. I see God in Your physical form. I see All in One Master i.e. Mohanji. I can feel Your love and the transformation which is slowly taking place within me. I love being in Your presence and listening to Your Satsang. I enjoy the Power of Purity Meditation which I consider a big gift You have given us and it gives me an opportunity to see You often during the meditation.
I wish You a very Happy Birthday and may You always be with me wherever I am.
You are my Truth. You empower me to be myself, to live truthfully and freely. You are always Near. I am thankful for all that You do for the Universe and for Us. We love You, we cherish You. Have a happy and blessed birthday Babaji.
I cherish Your presence in my life, because whatever You say, just resonates with me and You explain things simply, for everyone to understand. Mohanji, You exude love, kindness and compassion and it makes me want to be a better person, while striving for liberation!
You have brought my husband and me, under one guide, one mission and have aligned our purpose. We are so distinct yet complementary now. You have given my body, our marriage, our material belongs a purpose, which is happiness in Sewa.
Unconditional love, compassion, selfless service, purity, faith, awareness, acceptance, gratitude and liberation were mere words till You made them a reality. You make life lighter. Thank you for making our lives so beautiful.
Happy birthday to our beloved Guruji. Thank you Father for coming to this world and made our lives meaningful. Thank you for being with us all the time even when we are not aware. Thank you for leading us through this journey. Thank you for holding our hands through life. Wish you long life, happiness and peace.
Love you so much for ever our beloved Father
I cherish Your presence in my life because I am a completely different person after meeting You! I have never had more understanding, more peace, love, patience, compassion, happiness, a mind clear of heaviness. I have never had more knowledge on what I can do, understanding of my natural self before meeting You. I have never had such STABILITY in my life than after meeting You. I am not swayed away with every wave of life that keeps changing from bitter to sweet and from sweet to bitter. Waves of life are the same, but my inner self is not. I care lesser and lesser about bitter & sweet, and I care more and more for the happiness and stability of all beings of this world.
Thank You Mohanji for keeping me with You every moment.
I cherish being with You as Your teachings expand my awareness, warming my heart. You are ever-present even when doubts cloud me. Sitting outside the Ramana Maharishi Ashram in front of Arunachal, my monkey mind questioned if You are with me and lo and behold there was a clear sign. Mohanji’s eyes, nose and beard appeared as clear as day light to say “I am with you always.” This picture says it all!
Thank You for being me all the time, every time, Mohanji.
Mohanji for me is an unknowable vast consciousness yet an incarnation of a tangible force of compassion and a determined compass for liberation.
We are deeply grateful that Existence has sent Him to us, like a lighthouse, a family and a friend – never a stranger. We pray that Mohanji be continued to be blessed with excellent health and boundless energy to fulfill what He has come to do. Though the consciousness is the alpha and omega, we deeply celebrate His divinely blessed coming in body to walk amongst us all. We are grateful. We are blessed to have His presence so palpable in our lives.
Mohanji, you are my Viswa Mitra, a friend for lifetimes. What I cherish most is your humility and the unconditional love that you have for all beings with absolutely no discrimination. Your ability to make everyone feel comfortable and happy is so admirable. You speak to each one of us at our level of maturity, helping us understand the most complicated things easily. In your presence, it is a no thought stage with no desires and total bliss!
Lots of love and hugs! Help me stay in your consciousness now and for ever.
Wishing You a very Happy and wonderful Birthday. Your coming into our lives is like a rebirth in this lifetime. Ever grateful for Your presence in our lives Baba. Your guidance and love has added fragrance to our lives. Our wish for you. Pallandu pallanu pallaayirathaandu pala kodi noorayiram…
Many happy returns of the day Father. Thank you so much for being a part of my life, leading me from darkness to light. I am eternally grateful. Wish you a very long life and may devotees follow your path and teachings without deviation. Love and Regards. Thank you so much for all you have given me
A thought about “Mohanji”
A glance of “Mohanji”
A name “Mohan/ji”
I cherish anything and everything when it relates to Mohanji. I am indebted to Him for His loving presence in my life.
It is meaningless to wish You a happy birthday as You have no birth or death. But I still love to see You in this form which I think connected me to You. I love You Mohanji. Wish You a lovely birthday and wish every heart turns out to be Your beautiful residence. May they cherish Your stay and fill themselves with unconditional love.
When a child is born it’s said that, “It’s a rebirth of the Mother,” as she undergoes that immense pain to give birth to her child.
Mohan Ji gave birth to us. We wish more power and strength to Mohanji.

Wishing You a very happy birthday and many more to come! Wishing You a very healthy and long journey touching lives far and wide. Thank You for proving again and again that the physical trappings are but ephemeral. Ever so grateful to You for awakening the divine consciousness in me and merging it with the Divine Consciousness that is YOU.
We met Mohanji when he came to the UK I think 2012. Since then we have an affinity and Love for His teachings and Q&A answers- articulated so simply and to the point. Then with His subsequent visits to the UK, we grew fonder of Mohanji, who gave us incredible confidence and unconditional LOVE.
Mohanji has certainly shown His true self and His power. I felt that His energy has expanded to show people how to Love and serve the needy, including the animals and divine souls who have taken birth for whatever reasons.
Mohanji has given us a great blessing by initiating us to Consciouness Kriya. Back in year 2000, the Naadi predicted that would happen to us as per previous life.
We have been to Master’s retreat twice and what I have witnessed and seen I cannot write, but Master had confirmed this.
His Birthday is on the 23rd of February and we will celebrate it in awe and Love, and trust there will be many more where we could be in His physical presence. We are sure He will be with us.
Before Mohanji came into my life every breath every moment was painful, as if stepping on glass and swallowing fire. Nothing made sense and I had no reason to keep living. The spark of divine presence, beauty and compassion that is Mohanji gives me a reason to wake up each day.
Being with Mohanji I feel love for myself and others, something I never dreamed to happen in this lifetime.
How can I begin to express my gratitude for finding me and showing me myself.
After I lost my father who brought me to this world, God came to me as my father in the form of Mohanji. His unconditional love, compassion and caring guidance to me and above all accepting my service to Him and the mission, has completely transformed the Aishwariya before meeting Him in this life.
How can I thank You enough Mohanji for what Your presence means in my life and I cherish this beyond my own existence.
All I can pray to God is that let my Father, Mohanji’s hand be on my head till I exist.
I wish You a very happy birthday! On this auspicious occasion many beings will benefit by the service of Your followers. You have inspired and supported many of us to achieve things and go to places we could only ever dream of! You have brought so much love and light into this world and I pray that as our gift to You, we can continue to follow Your practices and teachings to spread even more of Your divine love and light to every corner of the world!
Wishing You on Your birthday is not just another opportunity to convey our gratitude to You for being in our lives, as we cherish Your presence every moment, every breath. Your grace in our lives, not just the two of us and our two sons, rather on our families is unfathomable, incomprehensible and we remain grateful for the rest of our lives.
While wishing for Your long life and good health (for Your physical form), we wish to continue to be Your instruments in accomplishing Your larger mission and serve You eternally with our utmost conviction, faith and surrender.
Mohanji’s presence in our lives is the biggest blessing we could have ever asked for. Awareness, purpose, gratitude, kinship, compassion, fearlessness – words cannot do justice to describe the lessons we learn from him every day and every moment. He is a constant reminder of what we can truly be, if we get away from the mundane thought processes. Our whole family is grateful that we are able to connect with him and revel in the security of grace that encircles us at all times.
February 2018 is when a new testimonials team commenced their seva with Mohanji’s blessings. Since then there is a growing awareness of the true value of sharing experiences and that has certainly kept the team busy.
Adding value to society in any form or shape is our biggest dharma and what better way than to be able to spread the divine leelas of Mohanji. Through this process we are slowly realising that each experience is not a mere coincidence but a piece that fits into the larger canvas of our individual paths. “Guru Leela” the book of testimonials shared by devotees is one of our offerings at the lotus feet of Mohanji. This was only possible with Mohanji’s grace and it is continuing to spread the vibrations and energy of Mohanji.
Guru Leela and Mohanji
We are eternally grateful to You for being with us every moment initiating every thought, flowing through every word and implementing every action. You play with us with amusement and love but you are ever watchful and protective.
With Your grace, we place our intention to carry on with spreading Your divine leela being Your instruments for ever till every soul in this world is able to see, feel and breathe your divinity.
Wish you a very Happy Birthday and many more to come!
And last but not the least, here is the devotional song “Guru Mohana”, the cherry on top of the Birthday cake (Vegan and Sugar Free!).
