Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 159 & 160

by Christopher Greenwood

Day 159 – Beware of ‘Quick Fix’ Spirituality 

The other day I spoke to Mohanji, and our conversation focused on the progress of the activities happening here in Slovenia. As we talked, the conversation started to touch on the path Mohanji is laying out for everybody, a Dharmic path of righteousness, which he is bringing to the world. He said that following the path of Dharma is precarious because you have to stay within the rules of Dharma for all activities, whereas if you are with adharma (unrighteousness), there are no rules; you can do whatever you like. The dharmic principles are included in what Mohanji delivers through his transformational practices and methods, such as Mai-Tri and MTM (Mohanji Transformation Method); they always include the statement, “As karmically correct or allowed,” so karma is never interfered with.

He shared when we were speaking that this isn’t always the case for other people who are seemingly delivering practices and transformation or offering quick-fix solutions or a path to spirituality. In healing, for example, he shared that many people apparently can heal – they can cure a disease, take some ailment away, or do something for somebody, but people might not see how they’re doing that. Healing needs to be fully understood because someone may be able to give somebody quick relief from pain or an illness, but if it was karmically necessary for it to happen, it still needs to happen. What that means is that somebody could potentially have temporary relief, but you don’t know the cost because karma can’t be easily moved.

This could potentially come back and come back with interest; the person who they’ve gone to could just shift it to another time, maybe another lifetime, so it’s temporarily gone but comes back with more. The person or the practitioner can be seen in high light, but actually, they’ve not done much. In fact, they could have potentially created something worse. He shared the story of a young lady who was very interested in kundalini activation happening quickly. She paid a tantric practitioner something like 500,000 INR to activate this. 

Mohanji has shared that Kundalini will naturally rise once all the blockages have been removed. Once all the existing karmic blockages have been taken out of the system, it progresses naturally, which is what he explains well during Kriya and the training, which everybody does as part of Kriya. If there are blockages and yet people jumpstart Kundalini, then it can deviate. It can either go to the Sun (Pingala) – create some madness, or to the Moon (Ida) – create depression. 

This is what happened to this lady; she had gone into a kind of madness. When she came to Mohanji, he asked her to go back to the same tantric practitioner and ask him to put it straight. She did that, paid again, and did the Pooja- the necessary ritual, but still, she was the same. Finally, the practitioner admitted that he didn’t know how to change it; he didn’t know how to take it back.

This is why, in Mohanji’s initiation, protection is created so that when Kundalini does rise, there’s no deviation; it’s safe. Then through the practices that we have of karma yoga (service), everything is being reduced and done in a stable way. It may not be a quick fix like what others might offer. It takes time, but then there are no quick fixes in spirituality. People going for them must be wary of the cost because sometimes people may not even know its repercussions.

Day 160 – Catching the Dimensions of Mohanji

I’d shared a message a few days back about the mosaic of Mohanji, his various dimensions and that the more time I spend with him, the less I understand. I also shared some words from a great saint who said that people wouldn’t fully understand Mohanji whilst he is alive, but those with him will be remembered long after that.

Recently, Soma ji, the Ammucare Team President, shared an incredible story, which gave me a clear insight into something much grander and incomprehensible than what my eyes can see about Mohanji, who’s in front of me. It was an incredible incident at the recent food serving for the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar, India. For those who might not know, Kumbh Mela is a colossal event where all great saints, sages and sadhus gather to take a dip in the river. It’s a very auspicious time of the year for this activity, and it holds a lot of spiritual significance in the Hindu calendar. Most years, Mohanji takes people there, I also joined one year in Prayagraj, and it was incredible.

I was there when Mohanji decided we needed to arrange food for the event. It came to him, and he wanted to ensure that people were fed there because many great saints and sadhus would be attending. It’s a fantastic opportunity to be able to serve there. It was difficult due to COVID, and the team was very cautious. They didn’t know how to do the Seva considering the many logistical difficulties, but Mohanji was determined. Despite these concerns, Mohanji didn’t take no for an answer, so the usual ‘Get it done’ order came. When he says this, it also comes with the empowerment to make it happen.

I was sitting with Mohanji the other day, he was in the room, and I was busy doing some work when he called me over to his chair and said, “Take a look at this. Read this message”. It was a message from Soma Ji. It was a fascinating experience shared by the people serving food at Haridwar. I’ll share the link to the full story because it’s extensive, and I won’t be able to do full justice as I speak now, but I’ll share it in summary.

The team in Haridwar had arranged for food to be delivered on that day. They had put all the food together, collected it, and arranged an auto rickshaw as they wanted to reach the ghats (steps leading into the water where people go to bathe) just before evening so that they could feed the sadhus dinner. As the team drove along the road, maybe a few kilometres from where they wanted to go, a Naga Baba appeared from the forest. (If you’ve ever seen pictures, these are the saints who are mainly naked with long matted hair, big beard, ash smeared all over them from head to toe, quite a sight.)

 He shouted at the driver, “Where are you taking our food?” This would be a terrifying sight for me to see this Naga Baba appearing from the jungle, calling out and commanding. The team continued to drive, but the auto rickshaw just stopped. It completely stopped dead; it wouldn’t move as if it had completely broken down.

The Naga Baba shouted again, “Where are you taking our food? This food is for us!” The team said, “Okay, Let’s give them the food; we’re going to be feeding people anyway.” They followed the Naga Baba through the forest, and I think it was quite a long walk – through the darkness, through all the trees and plants and everything; they didn’t know where they were going. Soon they came to a clearing, and as it opened, more than eleven Naga Sadhus were sitting in a circle, waiting for the food. The team brought the food and began to serve. One Naga Baba said, “We know who sent this food. He’s very far away, but we know the one.” 

They later said, “He is an Avadhoota; you’ll never understand him. He is beyond your comprehension and understanding. You do not know his grandeur.” After the team finished serving the food and gave their prostrations, they returned to their auto rickshaw, which automatically started working again.

I was reading this message (it was a text message) and looked up at Mohanji, smiling away. These incidents are always an opportunity for me to catch a tiny glimpse of something much bigger than my eyes can see. The only thing I can do in those situations is laugh because it sometimes brings relief when I’m focused on trivial matters and dealing with too much seriousness. Mohanji sits there in his chair, organizing these types of things.

Now I’ve even asked, “How is this possible?”

I feel I am handling something major, and here Mohanji, from his chair, is ensuring that he’s even feeding people in this forest in Haridwar. Now I could see why he was insistent that food should be served this year at the Kumbh Mela.

 For me, these are some of the real insights which give a glimpse into who Mohanji is. I can’t say that I can understand them; as the saints said, we may never fully understand. These small insights are a little window into something much more profound and bigger than I see on the surface. I think it’s only through these experiences that revelations come about what Mohanji is doing and his stature because he never says anything himself. He’s always very humble and will never outwardly say that these things are being done, and I’ve seen that in many cases now.

Thinking back on some other experiences that I’ve read about or stories that I read from blogs, it’s almost as if you can thread together beads of moments when something has been shown. Nothing is outwardly told, but if you catch it, it’s almost like you can slowly put together a bigger picture of a dimension of Mohanji – for example, Ganeshananda Giri, who’s a great master that walked with Sai Baba, completely revered Mohanji. When he met Mohanji, Sai Baba told him that because of Mohanji’s past, he needed to be in suitable accommodation, so he arranged a five-star hotel for him. He’d never been into a five-star hotel himself. Mohanji didn’t need this, he would be happy sleeping on the floor somewhere, but Baba had told them to arrange this, which gives a flavour.

There was Vittal Babaji, a great Dattatreya pontiff who gave him the title Raja Yogi within five minutes of meeting Mohanji. He asked Mohanji to sit with him next to him on stage, which is unprecedented for a pontiff of that stature because there’s strict protocol. Mohanji has no protocols, but a lot of people in these traditions do. If you’re the pontiff, then you’re at the front; nobody sits beside you. People will sit behind, just like the Pope sits at the front others sit behind, but Mohanji was asked to sit next to Vittal Babaji.

 It’s showing something, a clear message for me; these are precious opportunities and confirmations of something impossible to comprehend with the usual two forward-facing eyes.

Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 93 & 94

Christopher Greenwood

Day 93 – “Does Mohanji ever get irritated with all the people wanting his time?” 

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re doing well. 

As we’re planning for the Turkey retreat with Mohanji, it’s a stark reminder of the reality that we’re facing now in the world. It’s a complex situation, and many considerations have to be taken into account. 

I was thinking back to my Acharya training a few years ago, where Mohanji said that we can expect to see many calamities in the coming years, especially between 2020 and 2022, running then until the end of 2020s. I don’t think I could ever have imagined what we’re facing now—such an unpredictable situation. 

One thing I’ve noticed, especially in recent months and weeks, is that many of the meetings we’re having are around spaces. That’s very important because these spaces in the future will probably be a place of solace and stability for many people. 

The vision for each is going back to the ways of the tradition; living in harmony with nature, beautiful, spacious, with forests, with water, with all the elements, with good vegan food, locally grown and organic products, wholesome practices, chanting, kirtans, yoga, and spaces for meditation and connection to the self. 

As the world turbulence increases, it will be much more difficult to find peace and a space to connect. Because if it’s not calm and peaceful outside, and it’s uncertain, how can you connect inside? So, many of the meetings are about moving everything forward step by step with what we have.

Coming back to Mohanji, his philosophy is “Do it today, no postponement, no delay, it’s now”. Because tomorrow we don’t know. But if we take a step today, at least we’ve taken that much. 

Yesterday, I received a great question from somebody. I felt that the answer I was sharing was also useful for this voice recording because it could give more of a dimension to Mohanji about how he approaches life, and especially how he approaches people. The question was: “Does Mohanji ever get irritated or show any sign of emotion when dealing with such a high volume of different people, where some people may be genuine, and others have impossible expectations?”

It’s a good question. Coming up to a year now being this close to Mohanji, I’ve shared that many different types of people come to him and connect to him in different ways. In fact, it’s completely unique. I’ve been in situations where somebody has asked a question to Mohanji. They got one answer. And then someone else has asked the same question and got a completely different answer. 

The same for me, when I’ve asked Mohanji a question, I got an answer. Then, if I asked him the same question again, he’d give something else. So now, I generally take the first answer. Otherwise, it can be confusing. This may seem simple on the surface, but I believe and perceive that he’s connecting with all possibilities. At a specific time, he responds to what’s presented to him. So, every interaction is unique, based on the situation, as per the time, the space and the person present. 

I’ve also noticed that he simply gives what he can regardless of their background, position, wealth, or status. His approach is something that I’m learning from watching him as well, because people who come to him, there’s no judgment from Mohanji’s side; there’s nothing. He really lives and treats people with respect. That is what we should be doing with everybody we meet – recognizing the positive qualities in them and nurturing them. Even if there are negative qualities, there’s good in everybody. That’s what we want to try and bring out. 

Regarding the irritation aspect: from my speaking to him and some situations which have happened here, he doesn’t get irritated or angry emotionally in that sense. There’s only ever an intensity. It’s not anger, but I feel an intensity. It could look like that on the face of it, but it’s more of a shakeup when tamas or laziness starts to creep in. Especially when the ego starts to sprout, he gives a big hit, which can really shake you up. But once it’s over, it’s over; he doesn’t hold on to that experience. It completely leaves his mind, and sometimes he won’t even remember. 

So, it’s always situational. What I’ve experienced as well is, depending on my mental state at the time, how connected I am internally, whether I’ve got a bit of a scattered mind at that time, or I haven’t got as much focus or clarity, I’ll get the corresponding response back. He is like a mirror; he gives me that reflection so I can understand where I stand that day. 

I’ve always thought, but I can’t tell for sure (because Mohanji doesn’t speak about this), is that Mohanji can always see why people are coming to him. And if he can’t see it, his attitude is that he is a dog of the tradition – loyal, faithful, and ever ready to serve. He then feels everybody who comes in front of him has been sent by the tradition, and he really respects that. Everything that comes to him, whether it’s bad, good, or a gift, is straight away offered to the feet of Baba and the tradition. 

That’s Shirdi Sai Baba, who has played a big part in his life. Therefore, he’s always treating people with respect, humility, and love. When we were travelling, and actually everywhere else, straightaway everybody’s welcomed, with water, food, whatever they need, he makes them feel comfortable. 

A learning for me is to put aside my mind and my opinion and accept that whoever is meant to meet him will meet him—the reasons why I don’t know. I also don’t need to know. I just recognize that there will be a purpose behind it. 

Another thing I’ve noticed is that often, beyond what a person’s status is, their position or the power, the purest of hearts that call him, the sincerest ones, he reaches them. And he’ll go to lengths to respond to a pure call from the heart in a variety of different ways. 

Expanding on that question, “Does he ever get irritated? How does he deal with all the people when some of them are genuine, and some might have impossible expectations?” I think the best example of this is that previously, he knew that some of the closest people would actually betray him. And if he didn’t know, he accepted it as it happened. In the past, there were some challenging times when those closest to him completely tried to destroy him, tarnish his image, and make sure that there would be no more Mohanji in the world. 

There’s no anger; there’s no resentment for him. He believes that life will take care of that. Also, he often says that he is here to give people their fulfilment, in whatever way, shape, or form that is. So, if their idea of fulfilment is to have the experience of tarnishing his name or betrayal, then for him, he is here as the method for that experience to take place. Either way, for him, everything is fulfilment. Nothing is good or bad. It is what it is. And the karmic cycles will do whatever is needed to address those. 

From these observations, and from the learning about the mind being the seat of emotions, and the fact that what we project out into the world we receive corresponding experiences back, it makes it easy to see what it’s like when someone’s operating from a state of no-mind or very minimal mind. No emotions are really kept. There’s just a response at the time; whoever’s in front, and whatever has to be delivered is delivered. 

I hope you have a great day ahead. I will speak to you soon.

Day 94 – Mohanji revealing

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re doing well. 

I’ve mentioned before in previous voice recordings that there’s never a dull day living with Mohanji; there is always activity, movement, and momentum. He has a very clear focus on what he wants to achieve. It really amazes me because, over time, more and more are coming to life, various projects are coming forward, which are all complementary to the one purpose of raising the awareness of the Earth, raising the consciousness to a frequency where Satya Yuga or a Golden Age could become a reality. Each day, each hour, each conversation that he’s having is focused on how things can be moved forward in that direction. 

For example, he gave great orientation to the team leading the land developments for the Centers of Benevolence – about the next steps given this time and the challenges with COVID, how quickly we can move it forward, doing what we can with what we have. 

We’ve been planning the Turkey retreat to be organized well. Today also marks the beginning of the Global Summit. This is the annual event of all the heads of all the platforms across the Mohanji organizations, where we come together and reflect on what we accomplished in the previous year, and then look forward to the year ahead – what are the goals, what would we like to achieve, etc. This kicks off today. 

Lately, I’ve been observing that the speed has increased with all the new activities that are coming forward. For example, I shared one of the alignments between Ammucare and another group of people who will come together to form some great projects and initiatives, about which more details will be shared in the future. 

As I witnessed these as well, it reminds me of a message Devi Amma shared to Mohanji. This was during a time when he was going through serious adversities; many people were going against him. That was clear character assassination. And whilst he was doing everything he could for the good of the world, all these things were happening to him. At that moment, he wanted to know if there was learning that he needed to take from that. 

Mohanji asked Devi Amma, as she is connected to and in communion with Sage Agastya, to ask him about it. His reply was that there’s nothing for Mohanji to learn. In fact, he has come fully accomplished, and all he needs to do now is reveal himself. 

As these new activities are coming and taking shape, I see them as different dimensions of Mohanji’s purpose and vision in the world, especially in alignment with the ancient Sanatana Dharma principles of righteousness. One of those events, which clearly indicates that, was yesterday’s big event. It was the inauguration of the Sri Jagannath temple Trust in the UK. This temple Trust asked Mohanji to become an advisor to that activity. Their mission is to bring Lord Jagannath, Krishna, the Lord of the Universe, to the UK. It is a grand vision. 

Those things don’t happen, as I believe and understand, without the blessings of the Lord, without a plan. So, asking Mohanji to be involved in that and him agreeing and fully supporting that again aligns with those principles of restoring righteousness. 

I’m not a scholar, an academic. I haven’t studied too many spiritual scriptures in depth. But one statement which always stuck in my mind, which was shared at the Acharya training, was from the Bhagavad Gita when Krishna was speaking to Arjuna. And he says: “When there’s a decline of righteousness or a decay of Dharma, I happen.” 

When I look at all the activities within Mohanji global platforms, they aim to promote righteous ways of living, Ahimsa or non-violence, responsibility, respect for everything around. 

Another initiative that is coming forward was only spoken about on the bus as we were going to visit the land in Chikmagalur, where the centre of exclusive sadhana practice will be. The conversation was about the fact that there’s not really a way for people to become aligned to Sanatana Dharma principles. People who believe in the path of living righteousness, Ahimsa, non-violence, living with respect, high human refinement – how can they connect with it more formally? 

I am not quite clear about it, but there’s something within the Hindu system where it’s not easily possible to become recognized as being aligned to that way of living. So, they set out to bring together an idea where people could go through a formal ritual, process and registration so that if they wanted to and felt inclined, they could say – I’m a Sanatana Dharmi or a Hindu. 

This will be a formal process where people can take on that responsibility and a commitment to living that way of life with a new name. So, this was only a thought a few days ago, and with the pace at which Mohanji is moving, it’s now ready to implement and rollout, and it will be coming soon. It’s another dimension of what Mohanji is bringing to the world. Rather than a lesson, it’s an observation of what’s happening and the speed at which it is happening. 

An interesting thing I wanted to share as well, something which I’m recognizing as being consistent, is the change in the shape of Mohanji. 

Yesterday, when it was time for the inauguration event of the Shree Jagannath Temple Trust, we prepared everything to be ready; the camera was there, and the microphone was checked. Mohanji took some time; I think he went to see Amma and Acchan. When he came back into the room, he was different. Not completely different, but his hair colour, facial complexion, and body shape had changed. 

As we recorded the session, we set the lighting up as we normally would do. It was no different from any other event we tried to set up for. But for some reason, no matter what I tried to do with the lights, I couldn’t reduce the brightness displayed on the Zoom session. It was incredibly bright and golden, and no matter how much we turned the lights down, it remained. It was interesting, very interesting. 

I’ll leave you with that for today. I hope you have a good day ahead and speak soon.

The dimensions of Mohanji

Shirdi pose

By Charles Ndifon Londi

In this beautiful thought provoking testimonial, Charles Londi talks about his encounter with Mohanji through a vision 28 years ago. Now, many years later, he recognises the importance of connecting with the consciousness of Mohanji to understand his different dimensions.

Meeting Mohanji 28 years ago.

The figure floated on the ethers near the ceiling, scintillating with light. It was as if I was seeing or watching this strange apparition with my naked eyes. That was in the summer of 1992.

The events that ran up to the aforementioned were uncalculated, unplanned, and followed a tortuous route. I had wanted to seek closeness with God, The ALL IS, The True Reality, or the Supreme Consciousness, and hide under its wings from the vicissitudes of life that were buffeting me like an evil storm. So I joined Ma Cecile’s charismatic prayer group even though not a Catholic at all. She was a devout Catholic, very prayerful, kind-hearted, and simple, but was hated by the local parish priest who termed her an emissary of the devil probably because her devoutness, purity, truthfulness, and dedication attracted so many people to her prayer group that produced many miracles that were the talk of the day in the small town where I worked as a very young teacher. 

I wanted to be like Ma Cecile and always wiggled myself near her in hopes to be touched by the power of the Holy Spirit (Master Power) that descended on her at each prayer session and had her shaking violently like a leaf in a typhoon. I accompanied Ma Cecile once for a 3-4 days retreat to holy grounds where Mary, Mother of Jesus, was said to have appeared. We swam in the muddy and slimy waters of the swamp on the holy ground, ate the mud there that was believed to relieve one of all afflictions, and we were expected to walk on knees with a heavy cross to the top of a hill that had an effigy of Jesus nailed on the cross. What self-mortification! What excruciating pain with bruises all over! Many people gave up halfway as it was not easy to reach the top of the hill that had a cross with Jesus’s effigy nailed to it. I did not make it too. 

Ma Cecile made it to the top of the hill with a heavy wooden cross each time she came for the retreat as attested by everyone who knew her. This particular retreat was to be crowned with a 9-day novena in honour of Archangel St. Michael after each person had returned to their homes. No meat was to be eaten in the interval, and everyone was to maintain inner and outer purity in all affairs while devoutly reciting a special prayer to St. Michael on each of the nine days making a total of nine different prayers. I lived in the same town as Ma Cecile, so had the additional advantage of drinking only ‘holy water’ blessed by her during general evening prayer sessions. Then each individual returned home to do his special prayer to St. Michael for the day at the hour he/she had fixed. I went through my 9-day novena hitch-free, ending my prayers to Archangel Michael before midnight on the 9th day. After that, I did other prayers and read a little till about 1:30 am. Then I went to bed, but it was not easy falling asleep. In the twilight zone between wakefulness and sleep, when one is still very conscious, something abnormal happened.

Yes, I had prayed to St. Michael for nine days for help and protection in my life, but I did not harbour the thought of a visitation by him. I just had the inner conviction that I had done my part, and it was left to St. Michael to complete it.

”Hey, who is this being enveloped by bright light hovering in my bedroom?”, I asked myself. ”Is this St. Michael, and if so why isn’t he a Whiteman as shown in photos. And where are his giant wings and long spear used to pierce the devil?”, I mused. The being floating up there was dark in complexion, had long black flowing curly hair, a black beard, and a black moustache that stood in sharp contrast to the images painted of Archangel St. Michael. Then the being started gliding towards my bed. I wasn’t frightened, but I developed goose pimples from head to toe as he floated and sat on the bed sill. He asked me, ”Do you believe you can be saved?” I answered, ”Yes, by the grace of God.” Then he asked again, ”Where do you feel pain?” I was dumbfounded and for want of something to say, so I just pointed at my thigh saying, ”Here.” The magnificent being then used his hand and struck me on the thigh three times and vanished. 

I had forgotten about my vision with the ethereal being upon meeting Brahmarishi Mohanji, but some time ago, upon looking at his photo and contemplating it, it suddenly burst upon me, like sunshine from behind the dark clouds, that this is the being who had appeared to me 28 years ago and struck my thigh three times and disappeared. I think when the time is propitious, the meeting between a Master and his student is inevitable in any lifetime, and a span of even 50 years before the meeting is just a moment.

He has all the features of that night visitor that I have not been able to associate with all the other Masters I have come across. Worthy of note is that he is a Living Master in the flesh, and has taken on the onerous task of gathering his students/children, breaking their patterns and bindings that have glued them to the deceptive matrix of Maya in creation for eons, and taking them back into the resplendent light of the self-subsisting Supreme Absolute, THE ALL THAT EVER IS. Thanks for seeking me out, thanks for the connection.

The dimensions of Mohanji

We hear talk of phases of the moon, and will it be strange or foolish to use the word ‘phase(s)’ in relation to humans? Not at all, when you are dealing with an enigmatic personality like Mohanji in my opinion. He is visible and invisible, palpable and impalpable, outer and inner, and he advises people to connect with his Consciousness and not with his body. This is an indication that there is more to him spiritually than his body that is seen and felt. And above all he says, ”I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU.” How strange when he cannot walk down the road with us, one-dimensional conscious individuals would say. I have a friend who needs his phone number at all cost to be sure he can really make contact with him. 

However, it is my wild guess that when Mohanji says, ”I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU”, it presupposes that we should not even need him as he is ever-present as the air we breathe–and where there is a need, there is a lack of something. Could Mohanji be saying that WHAT IS IS, and there is no space to be filled as there is no emptiness? He even says it loud and clear that the need for the Master is binding in itself. These statements and considerations lead to the conclusion that there is more than one side to the person millions of people look up to. Understanding the multifarious dimensions of this magnanimous individual will determine the reality of each person who looks up to him for spiritual guidance. Let us first look at the outer physical aspect of Mohanji–the talking, walking, eating, and breathing man. This estimation is within the confines of his role as a spiritual leader and has nothing to do with his day-to-day personal life which shouldn’t be my concern or that of anyone else.

How nice it will be to have Mohanji as a personal friend, have his phone number, walk, talk, and eat with him daily! This is one aspect of Mohanji that some people will most love and which in their valuation, will guarantee that they have the presence of the Master in their lives. How great, but can everyone have that privilege, and can this be extended to everyone on the planet? Let’s look at what can compromise this desire for closeness with Mohanji had he the time and energy to personally befriend everyone intimately. 

Everyone is limited by geography, and various other financial and situational constraints, along with the current restrictions due to Covid-19. Wow! If meeting Mohanji physically and personally were the only way to be certain of his presence in our lives, then it will be a herculean task. And some people may ask, ”Is it worth all the trouble at all?” It should, however, be noted that people have sacrificed all material and financial resources and faced all sorts of difficulties just to meet a Master they bond with as their lives will be meaningless without such a meeting. Notwithstanding, there is another aspect of Mohanji, which is more important than actually meeting him in person. Meet the other dimension of Mohanji that is known by mostly esoteric students and which should be central to the understanding of spiritual devotees.

This aspect of Mohanji can be termed the Inner Master. One needn’t get out the door to be in contact with this aspect because it is an ISNESS, a Principle; ever there and ever now, closer than one’s own breath, floating on the invisible vibrating ether. In fact, it would seem that each step towards this aspect of the Master is a step away from it. This elusive dimension of Mohanji requires only faith, dedication, commitment, perception, and recognition of it for what it is to make it a reality in one’s life. One may never have the opportunity and means to see the other dimension of Mohanji without hassles. Could it be that one may clutch the outer Mohanji and be light-years away from the boundless, timeless, and limitless Eternal Principle that is subject to no physical man-made laws, is a law unto itself and is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient at each moment? And no matter the thousands of kilometres that separate them, the inner Master can be with his devotee at all moments through the inner channels even if the devotee is ignorant of the fact.

This write-up doesn’t seek to undermine the importance of the physical aspect of Mohanji or of meeting it. He operates in the Supreme Consciousness at all times in all dimensions of himself, but as Consciousness is the only state worth consideration, so the inner Consciousness is amplified. It is at all times national, international, universal, inter-universal, planetary, and interplanetary, galactic and intergalactic. As a spiritual student, one knows better than to cling to the outer aspect of Mohanji and he reminds everyone at all times about this. This constant reminder precludes the possibility of frantic worship of the personality that most humans are prone to.
