A Conversation with Tayiji on her experiences with Mohanji

Q: Tayiji, Jai Mohanji!

T: Jai Mohanji!

Q: Tayiji, please tell me, is Mohanji an ordinary person or is he an avatar? What is your opinion about this?

T:  In my view, Mohanji is not an ordinary person because he has appeared to me in many forms of God. So how can I say that he is an ordinary person? And in my view, he is an avatar. An ordinary person can never take the form of God. Hence Mohanji is not an ordinary person.

Q: Tayiji, did a guru or any great man ever tell you something about Mohanji being an avatar?

T: Many gurus have said so, one of them is Tyagananda Saraswati living in an ashram in Hyderabad. He said that his guru gave him a rosary and instructed him, “A Guru named Mohan will meet you after 15 years, give it to him.”

When Tyagananda Saraswati finally met Mohanji, he told Mohanji this and placed the rosary in his hand.

He saw the third eye on his (Mohanji) forehead. He also told Mohanji, “You cannot have one Gayatri Mantra (sacred chant), there should be many Gayatri Mantras. You are not a regular saint- All the gods and goddesses dwell in you.”

Once, Mohanji stayed in Delhi with a Guruji Maharaj for 2 days. And when Mohanji was about to leave, the Guruji Maharaj also started going with him. Mohanji said, “I am an ordinary person, why are you coming with me?” He replied, “You are not an ordinary person, you are a great man. Three generations ago, our Guru wrote the names of some soon-to-arrive great men. Your name was among them.”

Another time, Mohanji and his father met a young man in Kerala from the Naga community. The young man showed him a Shiv linga: “This is a fire shivlinga, can you take it?”

So Mohanji extended his hand and said, “I can take it.” The young man warned, “It is fire, no ordinary person can lift it. And only one who is of Shivansh (shiva nature) can take it. If ordinary people touch it, they will get paralyzed.” The young man then told Mohanji, “You are not an ordinary person, you are the form of Shiva. You are Shiva.” Saying this, the man prostrated at Mohanji’s feet.

The man asked Mohanji’s father, “Immediately upon birth, did Mohanji laugh or cry?” Mohanji’s father replied that Mohanji had laughed. The man said, “Your son is not an ordinary man, he is an avatar. Let him do what he wants.”

Mohanji’s eyes are very intense, only the yogis can recognise their brightness. Ordinary humans cannot.

Let me tell you one more incident. In South India, there is an astrology called Nadi astrology.
It tells about the previous births, based on the pulse of an individual. A Nadi astrologer said that Mohanji had not been interested in incarnating. But thanks to the prayers of mankind and some yogis, he had to incarnate and come to Earth. Mohanji will stay for 1008 years. His glory will travel the whole world, preaching the eternal religion (Sanatana Dharma). And finally, he will reside in India to the age of 75 and give salvation to mankind by giving darshan.

Q: Tayiji, please tell us who is Nadananda ji?

T: Nadananda ji is a highly-respected avadhuta (austere monk). He lives in his ashram at Kurnool in Andhra Pradesh. He gave the title of Brahmarishi (supreme sage) to Guru Mohanji and said, “Based on the communication from the Gurus in the Guru Mandala (a sacred league of sages), I am conferring the title of Brahmarishi to Mohanji.”

He also entrusted his powers to Mohanji and said, “Guru Mohanji is fourth in the list of 16 glorious Maha Gurus (great sages) of the Guru Mandala.”

Q: Tayiji, when and how did you meet Mohanji?

T: Mohanji came home with our son in 2011. When he came, Mohanji was wearing jeans, shoes and his hair was long. Seeing this, I doubted whether Gurus are like this! So we prostrated at his feet, he came in and sat on the couch. Looking at me, he said, “Some people are suspicious of me and wonder how can someone wearing denim and shoes be a Guru!” I was embarrassed about my thoughts and asked for his forgiveness.

During our conversation, he casually asked, “Why did you stop performing the aarti (worship) of Shirdi Baba?” When we earlier lived in Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh (India), we used to perform Baba’s aarti every Thursday. And as happens in Shirdi, we used to sing all the songs of the Aarti.

We discontinued this practice for some reason after coming to Delhi. We were very surprised that Mohanji came to know about this. We sought his forgiveness. He advised us to start again. So we started singing Aarti once again.

Q: How did you get the idea of writing the Ashtottari (108 names) of Mohanji?

T: Whenever Mohanji came to our house, he would be accompanied by others who would narrate their experiences. I wondered why I should not write Ashtottari in his name. This was my resolve.

I wrote Ashtottari in August 2013 and when Mohanji came home, I told him that I wrote his Ashtottari. He simply looked at me and said, “Ashtottari is very good, but you did not write the name of my parents and my Gotra (lineage).” I was taken aback. After asking him again, I included the name of his Gotra and his parents.

Q: Okay. Then, how did you get the idea to write the Sahasranama (1000 names) of Mohanji?

T: Mohanji would often come to our house, accompanied by some people. One day, I felt that after listening to so many experiences, I too was having my own experiences. So I thought why not write his (Mohanji) Sahasranama? When I told him this, he laughed and said that the Gurus don’t have Sahasranama. I said, if you are doing all the work that God does, why can you not have Sahasranama. So I started writing the Sahasranama in August 2014.

One day, we came to know that Mohanji was staying in a nearby hotel. So we went to meet Mohanji in the hotel, prostrated and sat down. Mohanji looked at me and asked, “You are writing the Sahasranama, yes? How many names have you written so far?”

I replied around 61 or 62. He said – no, you have written 74 names.
When I came home, I saw I had indeed written 74 names. I kept on writing this way.

In between, I could not write for two months when a baby was born in the house. Later, I restarted and completed it in December. One day, my son came home and was talking to Mohanji on the phone, “Today is my Tayiji’s birthday, please bless her.” So Mohanji spoke to me and blessed me. I said, “Guruji, your Sahasranama is now complete on my birthday.” He replied, “How is this possible? It will be done on my birthday.”

Then I started verifying once again; many names were repeated two or three times. There was also some mistakes after eight hundred names. After correcting these, I kept writing more names. An instruction came to write these in English. Once the English edition was ready, by the time we could courier it, Mohanji received the Sahasranama in Dharamshala, exactly on his birthday.

Q: Tayiji, when you had already written the Ashtottari (108 names) and Sahasranama (1000 names), then why write the Mohanji Chalisa (40 devotional couplets) as well?

T: In the Ashtottari and Sahasranama, every leela (play) of God is translated into a name. But in the chalisa, all his leelas are described. For example, Hanuman’s deeds are described in the Hanuman Chalisa. In the same way, I have tried to write some of Mohanji’s leelas in his chalisa. My aim is that just as Hanuman Chalisa is read in so many houses, if Mohanji’s chalisa is read in many houses, people will know his glory.

Q: Now please tell us about your experience with Mohanji.

T: I will narrate my experiences with Mohanji between 2012 to 2018:

In May 2012, Mohanji was going to come to Madhuban in Gurgaon, India. Shubha (known fondly as Amma- mother) and I both wanted to go and meet him. Mohanji was supposed to arrive at 5 pm. There was such a loud storm between 2-3 pm that the doors started knocking. There was so much rain and dust that we gave up hope of going to Madhuban.

Around 3:00 – 3:30 pm, the storm and rain gradually subsided and everything was clean. The sun came out, then we went to Madhuban in the evening and met Mohanji. We were surprised that a storm would come suddenly and stop. Sumit was there and said that Mohanji has done a Yagna of Panch Tattva in a temple in Gurgaon. The storm was a result of that. We were stunned again to know that Mohanji had such a hold on the five elements.

Later that year, Mohanji came on the occasion of Dussehra. I requested him to allow me to do his Pada Puja (worshipping the feet). Mohanji said, “You are already doing my Pada Puja everyday then why do it specially now?”

I had never done his Pada Puja before. I had only been doing Pada Puja of Shirdi Baba with devotion every day. It is the glory of Mohanji that he said so.

In 2013, my son informed me that around 10-15 people including Mohanji are coming to eat. My sister had gone out. I had not cooked food for 10-15 people. I got worried, my daughter-in-law was at home. I got up early, took my bath and lit a lamp in front of Baba and then prayed: Babaji is coming to our house for the first time. Others are also coming. Please give me the strength to cook delicious food for everyone. Later, both my daughter-in-law and I started cooking together. We made 2 – 3 dishes and then made more food.

After a while some devotees helped us, they made rotis and papad. Some work was done in this way.

When sitting to eat, Mohanji said to the others, “She has been up since morning and praying- That I cook well, make delicious food, praying to Baba. See how tasty the food is. Have you all eaten?”

The food of 15 people was eaten by more than 25 people. People kept coming and eating that day. This is also one of his great leelas.

One day in 2014, we all went to meet Mohanji when he was heading out. He sat in the car and we all greeted him. And one such message arose in my mind, “Who is Mohanji – is he Sai Baba or Dattatreya or Mohanji?”

Suddenly, he opened the door of the car and looking at me, said, “I am Saibaba, I am Dattatreya, I am Mohanji.” Saying this, they closed the door.

I can tell other experiences of 2015. One day I was sitting near the dining table. The kitchen glass door was closed. A globe entered through the door.

In it, I could see the world: blue sky, white clouds and some flying birds, big tall buildings and people, instead of sea and sand below. And that globe went a little way and disappeared again.

On the same day, a small globe came in front of the mother’s photo, during my sister’s pooja.

I asked Dhritiman Biswas Ji at home that day about this. He asked, “Do you still not know who was that world? It is Mohanji.”

In June, Mohanji took us to the tomb of a Punjabi Guruji in Chhatarpur, Delhi. My sister Shubha and an Englishman were also with us in that day. The three of us went with Mohanji. Since it was a Thursday, our car was stopped far away. So we had to walk towards Guruji’s tomb. I was thinking I can’t walk this far Baba. I am not able to walk for long. Mohanji was ahead and walking quickly.

Suddenly his walk slowed down a bit and he started moving with heavy steps.

I suddenly remembered the Mahadev (Shiva) TV show. In it, Shiva carries his consort Sati Devi on his shoulders. This scene was tangible, Mohanji’s hair was also long. We all met near the stand, so I told this to Mohanji. He said, “You have no illusion, Mahadev is not a serial. I carried both of you on my shoulders because you were praying right- saying I can’t walk-That’s why I did it.”

So again, we started going in the queue. There were many people there that day, and suddenly Shirdi Baba, Sai Baba appeared on my forehead. They both were running towards me laughing, raising their hands and blessing me. This went on for some time. When we started climbing the tomb, the scene stopped.

Then I told this thing to Mohanji. He said, “You were saying in the morning that you do not see any gods. You were feeling sad. That is why I got you their darshans. Anyway, all gurus are one.” Without any sadhana, I saw both Gods by the grace of Mohanji and so I was very happy.

After that, I always used to perform Mohanji’s aarti in the evening. But I had a habit of watching a TV serial at 6:00 pm. So somedays, I would do Aarti early, or after the serial or during the ad breaks.

After a few days, Mohanji came to the house and he said in front of everyone, “What is the matter? I come everyday and listen to your Aarti. One day you hurry, one day at 6 o’clock, one day at 6:15, why are you giving aarti like this?”

He knows everything, but he said so to get rid of that habit from me. So I apologized to him. I stopped watching the serial and started performing Aarti at the same time every day.

Let me tell you some experiences of 2016. In April 2016 on the night of the Kshetra Purnima (full moon),

I could not sleep. At 2-3 am, I heard my own voice. I was screaming loudly. “Who are you? You have come in a disguise. You are not Mohanji.”

Then suddenly my voice was heard. “You are that original element.”

In the same month, once I was listening to a Qawwali (Devotional music of the Sufi sect) on TV. The devotion in the Qawwali brought tears to my eyes. Suddenly I noticed that Mohanji is sitting in meditation at some distance, wearing white clothes. As soon as I saw Mohanji, I started calling him and moving towards him. After taking some steps, my feet suddenly stopped. I was trying to take a step, but could not lift my feet.

After a few days, Mohanji came home. I asked him about these two experiences. He asked, “You are writing about my Charitra (nature), is it not? I am the core element, now you know it, so write. No one can come to me in their body, they can come only in their consciousness.”

Then on the day of Guru Purnima, I saw Mahavatar Babaji, Lahiri Mahasya, Yukteswargiri and Paramhansa Yoganandji standing near the lift. And our Guru Mohanji was coming in. He wore a white dhoti with a golden edge, a white kurta and a Rudraksha garland around his neck. He went inside.

I had a rose garland in my hand. I thought who among these four gurus should I garland? As a result, all four gurus disappeared. When Mohanji came home later and I asked him, he said that he was in USA on the day of Guru Purnima, taking class. He wore the same golden border dhoti.

I saw Lord Narasimha ji (The fierce part-lion part-man avatar of Lord Vishnu) in the corridor one day that year. I was sitting near the dining table. Seeing Narasimha ji, I was terrified, scared. He had golden hair, a golden crown, big eyes, big teeth. He kept his hands like this and went in. He wore a dhoti till his knees, a vest with some designs and jewellery in both hands. He also wore Mohanji’s ring in his hand. And he went towards Mohanji’s room. Mohanji appeared to me as Narasimha that day.

On the day of Kartik Purnima that same year, Rajesh was also in the house. The three of us together worshiped Shiva. We have a custom of lighting 364 wicks on Kartik Purnima.

Mohanji was at home that day. When we told him this, he said, “You people should worship. I would come automatically while lighting the lamp.” Saying this, he went into the room and closed the door.

After lighting a lamp, we offered prasad to God and performed the aarti of Mohanji and Shivji.

Then Rajesh and Amma touched Mohanji’s feet. When I went to touch his feet, I noticed a lot of sand in Mohanji’s feet. I keep quiet and asked him later when he was eating. He replied, “Today is Kartik purnima, is it not? So I went travelling. That is why there was sand. This is why I wear my dhoti lower, so that no one sees my feet.”

The same day Mohanji asked Amma, “Who did you see while doing abhiskek (pouring water) of the Shivalinga?” She replied that instead of Shivling, she saw Mahavatar Babaji. He remarked that the form of Shiva always changes. The form of Shiva is not what you think.

I will tell you about my experiences in 2017. I fell down in March 2017. I had a large operation of my hip joint replacement. When I came home after the operation, Mohanji came to see me and after seeing me he told my daughter and son, “A big accident was going to happen. I got her out by one of her legs.

The same day, when I came to know that he was coming, I was welcoming him in spirit in the early morning, by laying roses in the corridor. Then instead of Mohanji, Dattatreya came in running. There was so much light behind him, that it rose like smoke. He was only wearing a dhoti and a Rudraksha garland around his neck. There were three heads and only two hands. With a rosary beads in one hand and a water pot in another, he was laughing and walking quickly. When I said this to Mohanji, he said, “Yes, I am visible nowadays as Dattatreya. In Canada also, a devotee saw me as Dattatreya.”

That devotee stretched out his hand and asked Mohanji to walk over it. Soon all the devotees lay down there and spread their palms and said, “Walk on our palms.” Mohanji felt bad about this and he refused. On their repeated requests, he walked on their palms. I asked Mohanji, did they not have pain with your steps? He said, “It did not happen because I made myself lighter.”

Then I understood how Lord Ganesha sits on the mouse and how Lord Karthik sits on the peacock. I felt that God makes himself lighter to sit on his mount.

In April, Mohanji was coming again to see me. Then I spread jasmine flowers in my feelings and started welcoming him. Instead of Mohanji, light came like a flame, gradually growing in size and came towards me. When I asked about it, he said, “Nowadays I have become like light.”

One day at 3:30 am, I suddenly heard loud Hanuman Chalisa. A rendition sung by Bal Subramaniam from South India. After that, I heard Hanuman Chalisa sung by MS Subbalakshmi. Both Hanuman Chalisa began to be heard loudly. I saw a chariot decorated with flowers on the road. And hundreds of people were walking behind the chariot. And I saw Raghavendra Swamy sitting inside the chariot.

Raghavendra Swamy is an enlightened being, a yogi, and he took living samadhi at a place called Mantralaya. That place falls on the banks of the Tungabdra River near Kurnool in Andhra Pradesh, India. I was telling all these things to someone very loudly: “Tungabdra is a river. This is Raghavendra Swamy. This is called the Mantralaya.”

Then suddenly I saw a very big hall, all the people were sitting across the hall. And singing praises of Raghavendra Swamy.

I was late. And then when I went to him, I accidentally touched a little bit of his cloth. Then everybody was screaming- Do not touch the guru. When I went ahead to bow to him, his face was Mohanji’s.

The whole head was shaved. Raghavendra Swamy is also shaved. Tilak was on his forehead and then he was sitting, like Raghavendra Swamy. So I wondered, if it is Mohanji, why is his head shaved?

While bowing to his feet, I picked up his dhoti a little to check if they were Mohanji’s feet. And I could see Mohanji’s feet. So I was shouting loudly- Mohanji’s hair, Mohanji’s hair- and the scene stopped.

When Mohanji came to the house and I told him, he said- it is a good thing that you are seeing great yogis.

But he did not say that he came as Guru Raghavendra.

Let me tell you about three more experiences of 2017. In August 2017, I went to Mohanji’s room. I wished to pay my regards to him by touching his feet but the doctor had told me not to bow down. I sat down in front of Mohanji with his permission. Mohanji was doing some work on his mobile, and I wanted to sit down for some time and get up. Suddenly he lifted his legs from the chair and stretched them on the bed in a cross.

He asked me to sit. After some time, when I got up, he said – come now and touch the feet. I had not told him I wanted to touch his feet. Then I went to him and I saw him in many forms, such as Shri Rama, Krishna, Narasimha, Hanuman, Dattatreya and Sai Baba. Speaking their names, I was touching his feet.

And when I said the name of Dattatreya, Mohanji asked me to stop, “See how my feet have become when you were saying the name of Dattatreya.”

When I saw, his two feet were on top of each other on the bed. And the top leg was shorter and softer, like that of a 15-16 year old boy. Mohanji explained, “You were speaking the name of all the deities with devotion. This is why while speaking the name of Dattatreya, my foot became like this. Dattatreya’s foot is like this.”

My happiness knew no bounds. This was no ordinary thing. I made obeisance to him repeatedly by touching his foot. Without my saying, Mohanji knew my wish and let me touch his feet. He said that, “When anyone touches my feet with devotion, I feel good. Otherwise I feel sad.”

Let me tell you another experience of 2017. One night at 3 am, I could see an idol of Lord Hanuman (Hindu God and ardent devotee of Lord Ram).

That idol was so big that if you saw the feet, you could not see his face and if you saw the face, the feet could not be seen. And in front of the idol, there was kanji (starch from hot rice) in a very large handi (pot). The pot was steaming. And salt was kept in a big bowl.

Seeing Hanumanji, I said to him, “Hanumanji, are you also drinking Kanji like Mohanji? I will come with rice.”

Saying this, I was bringing white rice in a big pot. Then Mohanji appeared there.

Why did I say Mohanji, although his face is that of Hanuman. And the body is all of Mohanji. He wore a dhoti of magenta color. And wore a dhoti on top. The color was a mixture of red and white. And he was standing there and I kept salt, rice and a ladle for him to eat. Mohanji spread his hand and said, keep it four steps ahead. I recognized the ring in his hand.

Then Hanumanji was standing there just like Mohanji. And Mohanji became like Hanuman there. He said, “Keep it four steps ahead.” I did not understand what to keep there- was it the ladle? The scene later stopped.

Then in October, I saw a very big black circular boulder. It was surrounded by floral designs. Inside there were two feet embedded in the stone, more than a meter long. When Mohanji came, I asked him for an explanation. He said those were the feet of the tradition. I considered myself blessed to see the feet of the tradition. And I would pay obeisance to them daily.

Let me tell you about some of the experiences of 2018. In February, Mohanji had come home. He was sitting having snacks in the evening. I was sitting near the dining table in front of him, suddenly the electricity went away.

I had been simply gazing at him at that moment. I saw that his forehead was completely shining in gold. A glow was seen shining in the color of gold. Then electricity came back and he started having breakfast.

I kept quiet and then Mohanji asked, “Tayiji, what did you see?” I replied, “I saw gold colour on your forehead.” “Yes, I am in gold color when I am in the subtle form.”

When Mohanji came on 24 July, he was sitting in the morning eating dosa for breakfast. Before eating the dosa, he was praying as usual, offering the food to all the gods and goddesses. I was sitting there in front of him, Rajesh was also there. Mohanji prayed, gave a piece of dosa to Rajesh and said, “Give it to Tayiji.” Then Mohanji asked me to eat. When I ate, I found that the piece of dosa was sweet. He asked, “How is the dosa, Tayiji?”

“It is sweet, Mohanji.”

“Yes, I make food nectar before feeding it to the deities.”

I had never seen Ram in my life. Nor Shiva nor Krishna. Not even Sai Baba. But Mohanji blessed my life by showing himself to me, in the form of all these deities. I want to express my gratitude for this and bow down to him a billion times. I want to express my deep gratitude for the darshan (visions) he gave me on this birthday. Mohanji, I bow down to you a billion times.

Being fearless

mohanji1

By Shyama Jeyaseelan, UK

It is the second week of May. The UK is finally seeing a decline in the spreading of the Covid-19 virus. Lockdown measures are slightly relaxed, although restrictions for travel, school, shopping, socialising and for the elderly, as in many other areas still continue. After the loss of thousands of lives and devastation to so many families, we are hoping that life will return to relative normalcy soon.

The UK is one of the countries to be severely affected during the pandemic. During the peak time in April, nearly a thousand lives were being lost every day. Fighting this invisible force was a huge challenge for the country as it was for the rest of the world.

During this time, we all faced many other challenges too. Many people lost their livelihood. No jobs meant little or no income to support our families. While many people were asked to work from home, front line workers had to continue to go to work, potentially risking their lives daily. The National Health Service (NHS) was struggling to support its staff with adequate personal protective equipment (PPE). Many NHS staff members fell ill, and sadly many lives were also lost.

Despite all these challenges, the human spirit survived. We saw so many charities and organisations coming forward to support and help the NHS, to help the elderly and the vulnerable, to support those people who had lost their jobs. Mohanji ACT Foundation team also came forward to help wherever possible with many acts of kindness.

With generous donations from the Mohanji UK family, food donations were made to local NHS hospitals to help the staff. This meant that many of them did not need to face a long shopping queue at the end of a long and stressful working day. Food donations were made to food-banks where those without jobs come and receive supplies to help them with their daily essentials.

While work places brought many changes to most people, as an NHS worker, my work continued as normal. It also meant that social distancing was not possible, I had to make physical contact with patients as before. There was no PPE for regular ultrasound scan sessions, only when coming in contact with confirmed Covid-19 patients. During the first few weeks we did not even have masks to wear.

ACT4

We have all learnt that life will always bring challenges, some harder than others, but when Guru’s grace and protection is present, we are immune to the shocks of daily life. This is something I have seen in so many ways within this short time.

 During our Acharya training, I remember Mohanji saying many times,

“The Tradition is with you. Be fearless. Be compassionate and loving. Serve the society.” 

This reassurance and guidance was definitely in need at this time of crisis. With Mohanji’s grace, there was no fear of the disease in me, whether it was at work or during service activities. Any of my patients could be carriers of the virus or might be in the incubation period of developing the illness. Never once did Mohanji allow a drop of fear to come in my thoughts. When people ask if it’s stressful going to work, the answer was a truthful, and cheerful, “No, I’m ok.” Fear, worry or anxiety would have definitely reduced my immune system and made be vulnerable to falling ill, and Mohanji made sure I felt stable within. It was also really nice to share that stability and positive attitude with my colleagues; it helped us all to have a relatively normal work environment.

fear

All the Acharyas and other Mohanji Foundation volunteers were doing online programmes as inspired by Mohanji. My resistance to learning to use new technology, fear of facing a live camera, and all other feelings of insecurities melted away as we all realised the importance of doing these online activities. Reaching out to as many people as possible with love and bringing positivity at a time when so many people were facing various fears was paramount.

Amongst the various programmes, we were also chanting the Gayatri mantra and the Maha Mrithyunjaya mantra every day intending to bring love, light and positive energy to Mother Earth and all her beings. This was benefitting us immensely too. The energy and the vibrations of the chanting were definitely energising and rejuvenating, increasing our immunity. When I received unusually high numbers of requests for distant Mai-Tri sessions, I realised the amount of healing Mohanji was giving me also. How beautifully he takes care of us, whether we realise it or not.

Many of the ACT volunteers were not able to physically help with the food donations due to various reasons. This meant that I was able to help often, and it was truly a privilege to have the opportunity to help the NHS staff, the Covid hub staff and the homeless shelters by distributing essential food supplies. It was a heart touching moment to see the happy faces of the doctors when a volunteer took ice-cream bars to a local accident and emergency department. Mohanji has given us this amazing platform, to help and make a difference in our local communities, to make a positive contribution and it’s truly wonderful to be a part of it.

fearless quote 2

Mohanji has said this period in confinement is a time for contemplation and reflection. Nature has given us time to slow down and to reassess what is truly important in our lives. It has been a time for me to appreciate my time with the family. With universities and schools closed, my children are home and it’s wonderful to be together, to tease them, to laugh and enjoy their company. It’s great to play with our cats in the garden. We have been blessed with warm weather on most days and it has given me the time to sit in the garden and enjoy nature, to connect with the elements. This is something I have not done in years.

Social media has brought the global family to our homes. Friends and relatives, whom I have not spoken to or made contact with in many months, have been in touch. It has been a time to reconnect and to ensure the well-being of our dear ones. Even my parents who are in their 80s face time us to see the cats!

 I’m truly grateful for the many moments of grace that has been possible only because of Mohanji. Thank you Mohanji for your presence in our lives, and for giving us the guidance and the platforms to serve the society with love, compassion, and kindness. Thank you for inspiring us with your words and actions to serve selflessly and fearlessly.

With Mohanji – Anecdotes from My Spiritual Journey

By Pramod Nair, UK

OM SAI RAM

Interface and interaction with numinous souls in diverse physical forms is indeed the feat of fate or destiny or, of course, our Karma. Either way, it is BLISS.

Sree Bhagwan 2I, being an ordinary mortal plunged in family life, had but no thoughts except for the daily rat race of my life. The light of my inner soul dawned after I met my Guru, Poojya Sree Bhagwan in 1998 who incited my spiritual quest and philosophical qualms. Henceforth, I had no looking back and the consciousness that this Guru has been known to me since eons left me spellbound. Every physical form must go into oblivion as is the law of nature and my Guru attained Samadhi on 15th August 2017 leaving me and my family in an abyss of grief. This preface is indispensable when I narrate my acquaintance with Mohanji on the 17th of September 2017. Behold, I perceived the same feel of vibrations I experienced with my Guru, Poojya Sree Bhagwan, the soul bond and my inner call to meet him surged another infinite accord in my life with Mohanji.

Nityananda Swami of Ganeshpuri had blessed my maternal grandfather and grand-uncle in the course of their numerous visits to his ashram and I used to watch on YouTube the aarti going on there. It was by prospect, or by providence that my eyes fell on a discourse by Mohanji on Swami Nityananada and this enticed my instantaneous interest. This led me to view another talk of Mohanji on Shirdi Sai Baba.

My inquisitiveness to know more grew without bounds and I set on a trail to find the means and ways to meet Mohanji.

The first thought was to spot if he had a Facebook account and to my surprise he had and he was visiting the UK. My yearning to meet him augmented by time and my thoughts frantically set on informing about him to my consort and better half, Aroma! On informing and briefing on Mohanji, I enquired if she was interested to meet him as he was visiting the UK. Ignorant of who Mohanji was, Aroma expounded on his picture that he appeared like a CEO of some company. To my surprise, he used to be one, and this intrigued me further to reach him.  Mr. Vijay gave in sequence that he would be in Bath on the 17th September 2017 and we started our journey along with our friends Rohit Phillip and Sue Tasher to Bath, from Penarth.

Certain meetings spark imperative kinship from the past, not explicable to ordinary mortals. Such was our meeting with Mohanji.  Memories imprinted in our brain shape as dreams and there, I found myself entangled in the spiritual aura of Mohanji leading us both down a pleasing panorama.

MY INNER REFLECTIONS WITH THE DIVINE

5th January 2018

Visions are a supernatural apparition or a spectre of events which can define certain spiritual encounters and I experienced one, after my usual chanting. It goes thus…

I was physically in front of an idol and that idol to my bewilderment was Mohanji and accolades were accorded as Jai Mohanji and Om Namah Shivaya many a time by the devotees amassed around.

The aarati focused towards the deity in the sanctum sanctorum threw light on two shivalingas ingrained by silver plating and arrayed by exquisite flowers.

The bliss I endured was unfathomable and I spanned over to my substantial entity chanting Om Namah Shivaya wide awake.

4th Feb 2018

Any unprecedented event spoiling our tranquillity initiates us to think about the position of our stars – a typical Indian Hindu mind. I being no exception was in the same path due to lack of a good job which compelled me to pilot my celestial stars and their positions. Lo and behold, the divination I acquired was that I was engulfed in SHANI DASHA. The burden of filling up many job applications took its toll on me and as my last resort for my chaotic mind, I approached my benefactor and saviour, Mohanji.

As usual the serene reply from him, “Don’t worry,” ascertained me to adopt an unwavering mind to subsist life as it comes with the equivalent momentum as if I had a job. The shani mantra of “Om Sham Shanishwaraaya Namah” came to my salvage and I supposed all would be resolved. The feel was akin to the one I would cognize when my Guru was with me.

The impediment in implementing my job offer in London impelled me to mention this to my friend who took up the issue and started punching numbers on his phone in the process of contacting someone. Caught unawares of what was happening behind him, he declared that a job has been set for me in a care home in Wales. Meanwhile hidden in the backdrop was a familiar face smiling at me and I jolted to comprehend that it was Mohanji’s face which was showing up at all glory in front of me.  My friend was in no frame of mind to stop praising the new job I was offered. Amidst all this cacophony I felt I was hallucinating, but inevitably was not and perceiving Mohanji nod at me in complete agreement to take up the Job, I knew it was no dream and my eyes could not betray me.

As an arid land absorbs every tiny drop of water, this job offered solace to my scorched mind and the affirmation Mohanji transmitted through his smile and nod goes beyond rationalization. The job was undeniably a stability pill for me and added to that, caring for the elderly was a spiritual endeavour.

Eventually, I was gratified because I would be with my dear ones in London itself. What more does a human need? Indeed, a family package!

9th Feb 2018

The craving of the soul is unfathomable. It leads us to supernatural situations and places. One such hunger in my inner self was Shiva Kavacham by Mohanji which haunted me day and night. I resolved to explore the usual online source YouTube, but in vain. My thoughts started speculating on why I was deprived of understanding this Shiva Kavacham by Mohanji. Later, it was made clear by Mohanji himself who appeared to me as a 3D image and elucidated the power of this Kavacha and explained why it was covert.

The inner quest materialized when I got a copy of Shiva Kavacham from Subhasree and  I solicited permission from Mohanji to listen and chant this.  I was very glad in return to tender her a pdf copy of Shani Mahtmyam in English which my Guru used to read daily.

On February 23rd (Mohanji’s birthday), my inner self boomed with the yearning to render Mohanji my deepest and inner feeling in the form of a stuthi or poem and it poured out from me frenziedly, the medium of expression being Sanskrit. Will share it when the destined time approaches

10th March 2018

This day was very propitious to me as it happened to be my Poojya Sree Bhagawan’s birthday. If in physical form he would have turned 93.  Darshan of Avadhoota Nandandaji was soul gratifying followed by the sight of Mohanji standing and praying in a hall which was veraciously bedecked with tables and chairs set like in a fine dine restaurant.

My thoughts raced to connect this vision with the current job offered to me, that I had accepted in a fine dine restaurant in Cheltenham.  Same day I could visualize oil dripping from the photo of my Guru, Poojya Sree Bhagawan, which emanated the fragrance of sandalwood.

16th March 2018

My association of the soul which was connected to Mohanji persevered. I dreamt away to glory, perceiving Mohanji as my mentor or spiritual guide. We strolled into serene places and it was bliss.  Out of the blue! Mohanji handed me a silver paper with Sanskrit inscriptions of the chant Om Ram Ramaya Namah. Surprises persisted, yet again Mohanji took out another article, which was inscribed in Tamil, and it delineated on Shirdi Sai Baba and Keno Upanishad. Since the language of Tamil was Greek and Latin to me, my friend was asked to read out the inscriptions to me. Mohanji presumed my dilemma on the Tamil language and proposed that it would all be clear and the inner meaning will be revealed. Soon, I was handed a golden hued watch by Mohanji seeking me to adorn it and with the words of utmost importance and divinity he held: ‘LET YOUR SERVICE TO HUMANITY BEGIN’. My inner thoughts revealed that the watch was a reminder of how precious time is and the goal is to live in the present, serving as a tool to enforce service to humanity.  As all holy books and teachings preach ‘MANAV SEVA MADHAV SEVA –  SERVING HUMANITY IS TO SERVE GOD’.

The mantra entrusted to me was to be included in my daily chant and then I realized that Rama Navami was on the 25th March. In addition to the chants, I also had the opportunity to read the English version of Kena Upanishad which precisely depicts Brahman with attributes and without attributes, and for being a treatise on “purely conceptual knowledge”. It reaffirms the idea of “Spiritual Man”, “Soul is a wonderful being that even gods worship”, “Atman (Soul) exists”, and “knowledge and spirituality are the goals and intense longing of all creatures”.

16th March 2018

After my Sharana Mantra and Mohanji’s Gayatri Mantra, I felt an inner urge to peer out of my window and gaze at the Sky. I felt the clouds impinging on each other to conform a silhouette. I contemplated more closely at the shape formed by the clouds and could view that it was Kalyan my younger son’s face and it emanated pain. I looked again and it was the same. Disturbed, I sat down in meditation and was in the process of sending healing vibes to him, in case he was in pain. Kalyan had gone for a night out with other children from the school on the 15th of March. He was all thrilled and robust the previous day. At the defined moment, the landline rang and it was from the school reception asking me to instantly collect back Kalyan from his camp place. He was ill and had been vomiting. Mysterious are the ways of the divine masters, enigmatic and it’s with awe we realize how they render a helping hand and guard us in our troubled times. I surrender to the divine, bow to the supreme masters and my faith in the Guru is impeccable.

3rd April 2018

My visions sustained and this time I was in a Satsang where Mohanji was encircled by many people who came to see him and get blessings, after his Latin American visit. I remained a witness and was imbibing the scene, when Mohanji spotted me and asked me to sit beside him and placed his hands on my shoulder lovingly. After few moments Mohanji got into a trance sort and his bhaav (expression) changed followed by the presence of Vibhuti on his right palm. He applied it on my forehead and blessed me by placing his hands on my head. The flow of energy from his hands to my body surged in and I was in total ecstasy. The divine energy was activated in me. The vibhuti which I tasted did have the divine fragrance as well.

Meanwhile, Mohanji started giving vibhuti to people around him and many thanked me, because they felt I was the reason behind Mohanji giving vibhuti and I personally thanked Mohanji for this amazing experience.

THE HOLY CHANT: THE KEY TO ETERNAL BLISS

I have been chanting the Sharana Mantra given by my Sadguru Rama Devi, who was my Guru, Poojya Sreee Bhagawan’s Guru. Before departing the earthly abode, she imparted this mantra to his disciples, Poojya Sree Bagawan and his consort Tara Devi on 1st November 1978. This universal Mahamantra is:

CHARANAM SHARANAM RAMAMBAKE

CHARANAM SHARANAM TRAYAMBAKE

Charanam means holy feet, Sharanam means Surrender, Ramambike means the one who gives material and spiritual wealth. Trayambake means the one who knows my past, present and future.

It literally means “I surrender to that supreme source or power which gives me material and spiritual wealth, I surrender to that supreme power who knows my past, present and future.”

My Guru used to say it is a mystical formula. It only asks the spiritual seeker to surrender. One has to chant from 5.30am to 5.45 am every day for it to give the desired result quickly. I have been doing this since 1998.

In reality, when you surrender your ego at the feet of the Guru/God, the Guru/God takes heed of all your trouble. You are no longer carrying the “I” sense, it is renunciated to the absolute Guru.

If one understands the Guru tattva, the source is the same, the form changes. This can be understood if you love your Guru, you see him in everyone and everything. I see my Guru through and in Mohanji. The love, care and presence which my Guru gave me is what I see in him.

My Guru used to tell me,“Pramod, I am always with you”

When I met Mohanji he said the same thing, “Pramod, I am always with you”.

Incredible are the ways of true masters.
