By Mohanji Acharyas from Finland, Denmark, India, South Africa, Australia
From 11th to 30th March 2020
This is the part 2 of Mohanji Acharyas’ selfless actions during the Coronavirus pandemic. To read the first part, click here.
MA Nimika conducted 13 online programs (Mai-Tri, chanting for energetically benefiting the world, kids session with storytelling and ‘Freedom’ meditation and short Facebook videos on tips to create awareness) reaching around 1925 people on Facebook and 25 on Google Meet. Nimika shares,
“I received a message from Aditya, asking me to go on Facebook Live. I was terrified at this thought since all my close friends and family would be watching me. I surrendered to the Divine and knowing that there are bigger plans in store for the future, I would need to erase this fear of facing the public. One day, during my regular Consciousness Kriya practice, I was guided to conduct a live Mai-Tri session. As I started going live everyday, I slowly felt the shyness going away and my confidence increasing. Despite some criticism and losing confidence for a moment, I knew that I could not cease my positive actions and just had to continue. Feeling I needed to do more to make a positive impact on Facebook viewers, I prayed to Mohanji to guide me, and that’s how I was guided to create short videos on tips to create awareness. The journey till now has been very intense. A lot of fears have been removed from me and I have gained a lot more awareness now. Even though many times I felt targeted by the negatives to end my sessions, my own faith and the guidance from the Divine kept me going.
I know there is a lot more to learn and a lot more needs to be done, but with the presence of the Divine, we will all be successful in creating the positive change that is so needed in the society. People have said they felt peaceful and relaxed after my sessions.”
MA Ulla conducted 9 programs in Danish (Online Mai-Tri, ‘Power of Purity’ meditation, puja (spiritual practice of worshiping a guru or a deity), mantra/devotional songs singing, Satsang (friendly discourse) on the topic ‘Positivitet imod alle odds’ which in Danish means ‘Positivity against all odds’ where she addressed the things we can do to change our mindset into a positive approach, reading of the ‘Power of Purity’ book, reading Mohanji‘s message on Coronavirus).
“I think none of us were prepared for the urgent call for action from Mohanji when it came. I wondered how I would be able to take action online, as I did not have any online experience as a person or with the media portals such as Facebook live or Zoom. I felt highly uncomfortable having to go public and live. Deep fears started arising. I am very grateful to Mohanji for giving me the opportunity to confront those fears and limitations and prove them wrong. It only strengthened me and my purpose. I am happy that with online events, I can now reach more people, make more people aware of the existence of Mohanji Foundation, Mohanji’s teachings and programs than before.
In Online Mai-Tri, two of the participants had never heard about Mohanji before. The overall response of the session was positive, people feeling relaxed as if a burden was taken off their chest. Bodily reactions such as jerks were reported too.
I use this opportunity to connect to people afterward the session. I feel that with the Corona crisis and Mohanji’s call for action and online events, finally we have an opportunity to connect to Danish people and hopefully eventually create a community. With many positive responses on Facebook live, even requests to do more online events and the overall interest for our activities in Denmark increasing, I will certainly keep conducting sessions online even if the Corona crisis ends.”

MA Rajesh Kamath conducted a very special 9-day homa (sacred ritual of deep energy cleansing with the fire element as the main divine agent of cleansing) during the morning hours in Bengaluru. This happened during Navaratri (nine day Indian festival celebrating Divine Mother) from 25th to 2nd April and was broadcast live every day on the Mohanji Official Facebook page. The ceremony was performed in Mohanji‘s physical proximity, tremendously enhancing the inner transformation. Rajesh shares,
“We thank the attendees of the Navaratri homa. With Mohanji‘s inspiration and grace, the response has been spectacular.
Each day, we averaged 30,000 reach, 5500 engagements, 200 peak viewers, 7500 unique viewers who spent 23,000 minutes. Total for 9 days, 253,000 reach who spent 210,511 minutes with around 50,000 engagements. Many thanks to the people who made it happen – Acharyas George, Devi, Ananth, and Jelena. Most importantly – Mohanji, who was always working tirelessly behind the scenes, has cleansed and cleared tons of baggage through the homa, thus effecting extremely powerful transformations for the participants (whether they realised it or not).”
Experience sharings by the participants:
Asma, Iran: “During the first three days of Navaratri Homa, I prayed to Mother Kali to make me free from any anger and emotions. So I was feeling so anxious those three days and didn’t like to talk to anyone. But after I attended all the Navaratri Homa, I now feel so light, even weightless. My soul is so calm. This was a long time wish to attend a Fire Ceremony but it was fulfilled by Mohanji’s grace.”
Aylam Sundareswaran Rajkumar, India: “Thank you, Mohanji, for doing this homa. Every day, I was getting darshan (vision) of a particular fiery Navadurga deity. I felt most of the negative elements gone. The presence of Mahavatar Babaji and many other masters was also felt and seen. The result of negative attacks done by a colleague 30 years ago was removed. I had told you, Mohanji ,during my Kailash trip last year when we first met, that I always used to ‘see’ you before that. Now I understand the reason why. Great spiritual masters used you for removing the negative attacks.”
Nirupma, India: “I attended the homa every day, experiencing it as very powerful and for the first time felt the vertical connection building up during the chanting.”
Helena Bjelaković, Croatia: “I attended the homa only on the first day but I felt the energy even during all other days as if I was there. It was interesting that on that day, I smelled smoke on several occasions. Every day I was feeling more energy and the determination that I want to work on myself more.”
Mina Obradovic, Serbia: “Mere words are insufficient in expressing my gratitude to Mohanji for organizing the Homa. It came at the perfect time, exactly when I needed it the most. I attended all 9 days, though I fell asleep a couple of days. As instructed in the guidelines on how to attend Homa, I set my intentions every day before starting to chant. My intention included the healing for me and many people close to me. One of them who I intended to benefit from the Homa experienced transformation afterwards – she who insulted another person and while being a person who never apologizes or introspects, admitted she was wrong and apologized. This was big news for me, and I knew the Homa had something to do with it. This person’s pride somehow reduced a lot – she was now more humble, open and more friendly towards everyone. She also started expressing much more love than before, like a child, innocently and freely. I was simply amazed. Mohanji’s power can literally move mountains!”
Izabela Jovovic, Serbia: “I personally attended all 9 nights. At Zoom meditations, I talked to meditators about the Homa, what it represents, what are the benefits and my experiences of the first 2 days. I also shared the information with people who did not attend Zoom meditations. 10 of them then joined the Homa. Everyone who spoke to me had a very nice experience and great energy cleansing during chanting. They confirmed they had difficulty in chanting focusing on the chakras (energy centers in our body) where they felt the most blockages, with laughter and tears. I hope I will write a longer blog about personal experiences about this Homa. So many deep insights, so much of burden released (physically and energetically) and great enjoyment in chanting. Each energy center and mantra were stories for themselves. Lord Rama’s last mantra literally carried me!”
Ekaterina Nestorovska, Macedonia: “I participated two times. After the first time, I felt light and so energized that I couldn’t fall asleep after it, even though the homa timing in my country was from 1:30 to 4 am. One lady who was new to Mohanji‘s teachings but was joining everyday, said it was so wonderful and that she left like a feather. She said she thinks a lot of stuff got burned from within. Even though she is a newcomer, she connected instantly and is eager to join all the activities.”
Chai, UK: “The 9-day homa conducted by Acharya Rajesh happened to fall right in the time of my online program schedule which was tight. Another challenge was that in my time zone, it was starting at half-hour past midnight. I managed to join one full session. My access to the internet is only via my cell phone. And the mobile phone connection data had almost finished. So I had to save the remaining 2GB data for the daily 7 am programs while waiting for the new phone package to be activated. On the second day, I only stayed on the homa till I learned the chant, and then turned off the mobile data. I was worrying about the next day’s program, because the process of porting the phone from one company to another would take 2 working days after activation, which is usual. So, on the day of waiting, no translation, no internet was allowed. In the late afternoon, I had a thought that maybe I could talk to Mohanji. Going into my prayer room, I talked to Mohanji about the situation casually, like talking to a friend. Then forgetting about it, I moved on to cooking and dinner. After about 3 hours, I checked my phone and couldn’t believe my eyes! I was seeing the internet data sign shown on the top left corner on the screen – 2 days turned out to be only 2 hours! Wow! Ha ha! No surprise! Only Mohanji can do it. Miracles do happen with M power. The only thing is – are we ready to comprehend?”
Ljiljana Petrovic, Canada: “I participated in all 9 days of Navaratri homa, performed by Acharya Rajesh. In spite of internet connection issues, I felt I was there with them. The chanting performed by other Acharyas was so powerful, very strong and receptive. Mohanji‘s presence was felt strongly. I kept pictures of my family members and friends beside me and I thought about so many people that I know, wishing them all to be with me, to benefit from the homa. Description and intention of each homa was very well explained by Mohanji Acharya Devi Mohan. Sometimes the very strong singing of a special bird was incorporated in the whole scenario, as if it was chanting along with us. Especially on day 7 of homa. I was wishing I knew the meaning, since the bird’s presence was indicating some connection. Also during those days, I noticed indications of personal cleansing at every level for which I am very grateful to Mohanji who opened the door for me to enter.”
Laurie, USA: “While watching and chanting along during the Homa, I always felt connected to strength and it greatly relieved any anxiety I was feeling. I also would feel tremendous energy changes at times when Rajesh was appearing to pray and while getting the coconut ready to sacrifice to the fire. I knew it was helping me on many levels whether I can articulate it or not. Above all it was a great comfort.”
[From USA, name withheld]: “Hi, I wanted to share my experience of the Navratri homa. I started logging into Facebook only on the 4th day and that too for about 30 minutes at the end. But the experience was so powerful and I felt such strong vibrations that I almost thought it was an earthquake! I then went into a trance for at least 20 minutes. It was magical. On the last day of the homa, I attended for the entire 2:30 hours and felt very very light – almost like I could fly. I sincerely thank the entire team – Mohanji, Deviji and the entire Mohanji family who made this possible.”
Bhavani Nair, USA: “I did attend all nine days of Homa and experienced peace and deep connections at the time. Towards the last few days, when we were moving up the chakras, I experienced just extreme sleepiness as I was chanting. It started happening from heart chakra (energy center in our body) onwards. I was extremely fatigued and passed out while chanting for 10-15 mins. When we came to the throat chakra, I experienced some type of energy forming in my throat as if I was getting sick. I passed out at the end of the homa while chanting and woke up after hearing Father’s (Mohanji‘s) Gayatri mantra. In the last few days I just experienced some energy in the crown (top of the head) and the higher chakras. I remember feeling fatigue, pains, and headache. Sometimes I wondered if I had contracted Covid-19! My husband Bimal had been sick since the start of Navratri and watching him in a helpless state brought out some not-so-good emotions in me. I was feeling that all the work had just fallen on my lap. It was just an extreme 9 days with Acharya work, kids, home, him being sick and participating in the homa late at night. It was a very purifying time though, I believe, and only deep reflections will bring forth the changes that have taken place in each one of us. Thank you to Divine Mother (who was being celebrated during Navaratri) for helping us all in these times and Father (Mohanji) for always holding our hand and walking with us.”
Bimal Nair, USA: “The night before the start of Navratri, I was working at the airport finishing up the work week as the pandemic was sweeping down into NY, and affecting all life matters, especially air travel. I finished my duties though my wife was concerned and wished that I stay home since I was very tired. Looking forward to my days off with the family, I came home in the morning and went about the day. A little after noon time, I started to get chills. The chills led to a fever and I knew I was not well. The evening came and I was in full sickness mode wearing multiple layers of clothes, blanket, and holding a hot cup of water to keep me warm. The first night of the Navratri Homa was beginning and I participated as there was nothing else for me to do. Second day came the same way, as I curled up in the corner of the couch as I watched Rajesh perform the Homa with chanting from all the people there in Bangalore. I would stay up as much as possible during the Homa, but I do remember nodding off here and there, maybe it was my sickness, maybe it was the energy of the Homa but I could not keep my eyes open the whole time. Night after night, I was there witnessing the Homa – it was almost a ritual for the whole week, a routine where everything was planned around the Homa. The fever continued the whole week, all nine days and more as of now. The situation with my sickness was that although it did not go away, it never got worse either!
I do have faith that it was the Homa that prevented the sickness from taking over. This is the first time ever in my life where I was literally shut down, so I could participate in such a Homa. Navratris have come and gone but this was no ordinary event. I believe this one kept me and my family safe from darker times. Now that it is over and I have gotten tested for the dreaded virus and we are awaiting the results, I feel it does not matter – I know all is taken care of. The Guru Mandala and the tradition keeps its children protected. I don’t know what I would have done, had it not been for this Homa that kept me safe and sane when I needed it the most. Thank you all in Bangalore for making this happen and thank you Father Mohanji for all that you do for us!”
Jayashree Mukund, USA : “I was able to feel the extremely high energies from the Homa and it was very transforming on the personal level.”
Geeta Iyer, USA: “Felt high energies over my Sahasrara (energy center of our body on top of the head), almost all the 9 days, when I sat to chant along and also after the end of homa each day.”
MA Devadas conducted 6 programs (group chanting, ‘The Power of Purity’ book reading, ‘Blossoms of Love’ meditation) in Malayalam language with a total of 1384 views and 558 engagements. The participants found the ‘Power of Purity’ book reading profound and some of them said they felt their doubts clearing while listening to the topics from the book.
MA Revathy conducted 6 programs of online chanting with the total reach of 1046 people.
“Many participants said they felt very positive after the chanting and meditations and that the vibrations after the chants were very powerful. They said the OM chanting took them to a different level and they felt very peaceful and calm after that.”
“I have received a feedback request to continue with the sessions and I myself have felt the stability within me growing through the chanting of these mantras and the reading of ‘Power Of Purity’ book.”
MA Hemkant conducted 7 online Mai-Tri sessions which were viewed by 200 people. Hemkant shares,
“I received approval as a Mai-Tri practitioner in January 2020 but could not start practice. While attending Acharya training with Deviji in Bangalore, Mohanji empowered all the Mai-Tri practitioners to conduct online Mai-Tri sessions. Gratitude to Mohanji for this blessing as it helped me to start my Mai-Tri seva. Mohanji had also conveyed to me telepathically on the 17th, “Go online. Show your face to the world that you exist as Mohanji Acharya.”
After attending the Bangalore training, I had planned to go to Kuruvapur and then to Pune for the Acharya program on 21st March 2020. Due to the pandemic, this Acharya program got postponed and there was some confusion as to whether to go to Kuruvapur or not. Finally, on 16th March 2020, I had a strong feeling (which I know was guided by Mohanji) to travel back to Vadodara as there could be the possibility of getting stuck. This guidance was well before the lockdown news which had come around 25th March. Getting stuck at one place would also have meant that I would have most likely been unable to conduct online programs. Hence I left Bangalore on 17th March itself, by train via Pune-Mumbai route. During this travel of two nights and a day, there was absolutely no space for fear or anxiety. I felt fully protected with Mohanji’s energies around me.
After reaching Vadodara, I began conducting the online programs, first on Zoom with friends and then shifted to Facebook as it was easy to use, with video recording facility without any additional setup or difficulty.
Initially there was a lot of struggle while conducting online sessions. Sometimes the internet was not working or getting disconnected often. It happened twice that my laptop just switched off in the middle of the online session. Once during meditation, the voice coming out of the wifi speaker was muffled or was getting cut off. And sometimes my young son would disturb me etc. I don’t know what exactly all this was about, but some type of challenge was always present until I finally got settled online.
After a couple of days from the start of the online events, I had the opportunity to attend an online Mai-Tri session with Mina. This was of great help. I realized that I need to be interactive. And when I started online programs this way, it was a great experience to be calm, confident and it settled my mind well. Mina’s session also gave me good clarity on how to conduct an online Mai-Tri session and from the next day onwards, with Father’s grace, I could start conducting online Mai-Tri sessions in Hindi. Deviji’s online Mai-Tri sessions also helped me understand the golden dome process much better. Many thanks to Mina and Deviji.
I had a few experiences after online sessions started. On one day, I could smell some fragrance and on another day, I was feeling a very deep connection with Mohanji. Another time, I had a vision whilst conducting an online Mai-Tri session that many masters are there around Mother Earth and that they are all healing her. Mother Earth was getting filled up with divine white bright light from all sides. I could also see Mohanji behind me, sending healing energy. Suddenly, I then saw a Goddess above Mother Earth, in ‘ugra svaroopa’ or fierce posture holding a trident pointing at something. I kept seeing this form of the Goddess for many days. My wife says that she feels if she is experiencing the ‘Life is Beautiful’ movie, since amidst all the negativity around. there is nothing but positivity in our home.
On 21st March, my 11-year-old son, Soham shared his feeling that this virus has been created by nature so that all humans become vegetarian. Interestingly, we have never had any discussions pertaining to this topic, so it was Soham’s own understanding. I am convinced this understanding must have been given to him by Father Mohanji! Deep gratitude to Mohanji for providing such a wonderful platform so we are able to serve even without leaving our homes. Thank you, dear Father, thank you Mohana Sai for being with us, inspiring us, empowering us, nurturing us, protecting us, making us messengers of positivity in the midst of negativity around.”
MA Preeti Duggal conducted 12 programs (1 online chanting, 11 online chanting and Mai-Tri method) with a total of about 4000 views. Preeti shares,
“After the first chanting session itself, people responded with their appreciation of the session and they said they felt motivated to do it at their homes too. They mentioned the deep calmness within afterwards. After the Mai-Tri sessions, several people reported that they were able to sense a lot of releases happening.
Listed below are just a few of the many responses to the sessions:
- One of the attendees, a woman, was going through a lot of fear and anxiety as one of her family members was in the hospital because of the Coronavirus, and the remaining 7 were quarantined at home. She had been unable to sleep for days because of fear and anxiety. But after she started attending the sessions all her fears were released, she could focus well and felt a lot more strength to handle the situation.
- A woman who is in her early pregnancy was feeling very low and filled with fears about the future, but after attending the sessions released those fears. She could connect with Mohanji and felt the protection for herself and the baby.
- During one of the sessions, one person felt the presence of Babaji and Mohanji together holding her hand. She said she was in tears the entire session, and felt much lighter and happier after that release.
- One woman who attended had some issues with her in-laws. In one of the sessions, I asked for people to forgive everyone in their lives, even those who had given them pain. She forgave her in-laws and after a couple of hours, the father-in-law passed away peacefully. She was happy that she had been able to release that pain and the burden and said she was sure that with Mohanji’s Grace, her father-in-law also felt better and could leave the body peacefully.
- A man who attended had a history of conflict with his late father since childhood, and had not reconciled with his father till his passing. So he was harboring a lot of guilt and pain because of which he could not sleep and had stomach issues too. But during one of the sessions, he felt his father was with him and smiling. He could feel his guilt getting released and now he is much better and his issues have greatly reduced. He asked for a distance healing which I did, and with Father’s Grace, he could release even more baggage connected to the father-son relationship issue.
- A man after attending the session for two days had a lot of body pains, especially around the shoulders and neck but by the fifth session all pains got released and he was feeling much lighter and happier.
- A lady was on medication for severe arthritis and had not been able to bend her knee for months. But during one session her knee could bend easily and she even sat cross legged for the entire session! She realised this after the session ended.
Many more people messaged me about their fears, and anxiety related to the Coronavirus, their future, jobs and financial situations but they were feeling so much better after the sessions and looked forward to attending every day.
For about 6 people who were attending the sessions, I had to do a distance healing too after the session.”
MA Rekha Murali conducted 19 sessions (9 online chanting of Gayatri Mantra and Mahamrityunjaya mantra, 1 online Mai-Tri, 9 Satsangs (friendly discourses)). Rekha shares,
“The entire Mohanji family swung into action on Mohanji’s inspiration to conduct various programs within our capacity to reach out to people to help them face the Corona virus crisis.
Mohanji India started with a half hour chanting every night targeting the major cities to overcome the panic and fear and spread light and love in this world. This was planned on Zoom. However as there were not many takers for Zoom, all of us shifted to FB live.
It felt a little strange on the first day but soon my faith and surrender helped me overcome this feeling and I was able to connect with ease. The chanting was fairly simple and by the time we finished the 108 times of chanting, time would pass quickly.
Soon I took up an online session of Mai-Tri method for the well-being of Mother Earth. With this, I started feeling more comfortable speaking and addressing others. This session gave me ideas to take things further with Mohanji’s grace and I decided to do something different.
So, I started a satsang with the intention of reading the Maha Sudarshana Mantra eleven times each day for 11 days. The Maha Sudarshana Mantra is an extremely powerful and auspicious Mantra that removes all the unnecessary elements in life and improves the overall well-being. It can be chanted for 9, 11 or 21 days. My sankalpa was to chant this for 11 days to remove fear from people’s lives and for peace on Mother Earth. Along with this, I took up reading excerpts from the ‘Power of Purity’ book and meditation.
Each morning at 9 am, I was prompt and ready to chant with the group. Initially, it seemed pretty easy although I would prepare sincerely and choose topics carefully. I noticed that the topics were just flowing connecting one to the other and that I was able to relate it with my experiences. The topics that I chose were regarding conflicts, challenging times, followed by reacting and responding, duality and ended with purity on the four levels of physical, mind, intellect and spiritual. On the last day, we ended with the topic of searching for a Guru. It flowed smoothly and I was amazed at how dear Mohanji had orchestrated the whole thing seamlessly.
My personal experience on chanting the Sudarshana Mantra was amazing. I started with gusto and was enjoying the chant. It is a mantra that removes all the unnecessary elements in our lives purifying us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I was under the illusion that all was well with me and I could just chant and talk to people. Soon the chanting had its effect on me. It was clearing things from very deep layers within. When I would chant, my entire body would pulsate with energy and I even had a vision of Maha Vishnu once while chanting online.
Although I was prompt and happy to chant each morning, during the course of the day, I had a lot of negative feelings coming up. I started feeling worthless, unwanted, unloved. I would just tear up whenever I had some quiet time to myself. I plunged into more and more MF activities and this too did not help. The sadness persisted. I requested a Mai-Tri healing and that accelerated the removal of these elements within me. Within a day, I was back to my cheerful self and that happened to be the last day of the Maha Sudarshana Mantra chanting! I was able to share this experience with the people that morning.
Each word of Mohanji’s from the ‘Power of Purity’ book was assisting me, helping me contemplate, replace the negative feelings and thoughts with positive ones and that was what kept me going through the 11 days. Mohanji patiently allowed me to clear all the negatives and held my hand as I did my morning satsang.
My sincere gratitude to Mohanji and a big ‘Thank You’ to all those who were present and chanted with me those 11 days. My heartfelt gratitude to Mohanji and the Tradition for blessing me with this opportunity to complete a sankalpa with all the participants.
The satsang not only cleared aspects in me, I, as an instrument, was able to reach out to many others. People wrote back saying that each day the reading and chant felt as though it had been tailored for them. I share here two experiences by a friend who lives in the Middle East:
“I thoroughly enjoyed the topic being read today. My life too has been a nomadic one since I left Singapore 8 yrs ago, and the past 3 yrs have been full of change. I used to be in Singapore for a month and in Dubai for a month, managing kids in one place and in-laws in another. In the process, many many transitions like friends, objects and relatives fell away. After spending 20 yrs in Singapore where I used to think I had truckloads of friends, the passing years have taught me or shown me my true friends. It has been a lesson truly: out of sight and out of mind. Hard-hitting but relevant. Amidst all this change is when I met Mohanji. And having met Him and being associated with Him and listening to Him, my life has taken a 360-degree turn. How-and-when type of expectations dropped and life became fuller, richer and simpler, I can’t pinpoint exactly how but it’s certainly lighter and peaceful. I can only marvel at Him for chiseling me in such a lovely manner. Utter gratitude..Every time I manage to log in to your reading, I feel it’s just for me.” – anonymous from Middle East
“Dear Rekha, I heard your session today and again it put to rest many questions in the heart. Mohanji‘s simple and straightforward replies are like a salve to the soul. Yes, in this path there have been waves of joys and sorrows and deep- seated issues have risen from within especially in the last few days. I have offered all these as offerings into the Homa. Just feeling grateful for all activities done by Mohanji Acharyas that helps one confront and release unnecessary baggage in these chaotic times. It makes the journey so much lighter and brings in renewed confidence to wait for life to unfold as it has to, knowing fully well that my Guru holds my hand through all the trials and tests. I guess the days I need to get some spiritual downloads from Him, it has been made possible by Him through you. Can’t thank you enough for doing this for the past 9 days. Gratitude to Guru Mandala, Mohanji and you as his lovely instrument”
“Thank you so much! Simply love listening to you. Lots of love, Rekhaji” – Indrani Acharya
“Thoroughly enjoyed the reading..change is the only constant in life”- Padmini Ravi Kumar:
Besides this, on 2nd April I had an opportunity to do a satsang in Tamil. I was a little nervous as my vocabulary in Tamil is not too good. But with Mohanji’s grace, it seemed effortless and the talk flowed freely. Thank you, Mohanji!
Overall, it has been a huge lesson for me. I have been on my toes, busy with many activities and have learned to value time. The transformation, the peace and calm within are tremendous. I am now learning to live in the moment, burying the past with no worry of the future!”
MA Nirupma conducted a couple of Facebook live sessions of Satsang and chanting. Later on, she started writing articles inspired by Mohanji on Facebook and received a very good response and was viewed by around 1022 people. She also writes poetry inspired by Mohanji’s teachings in Hindi.
“I started working for ‘karuna for the Corona virus’ mission after my return from Bangalore Acharya training with Devi. In my small way, inspired by Mohanji’s teachings, I am helping the people around me and around India. For a few days, I did FB live satsang and chants in the morning and at night at 10 pm. And a Mai-Tri session, but could not continue offering this due to unavoidable circumstances.
I have written the following articles inspired by Mohanji’s teaching on my Facebook page.
– Healing Mother Earth
– Root cause of sickness
– Blossom in Love
– Be Together Be Love
– Present Scene of J&K
– Chant! Chant! Chant!
– Time to Unlock
I also wrote poetry in Hindi inspired by Mohanji’s teachings:
– कृतज्ञत , a poem expressing gratitude towards nature
– ‘Viyras’ about how a small virus has come to alert humans to leave greed and live in harmony with other beings
-‘ Shunye’ based on Mohanji‘s teaching explaining how a scattered mind changes into a unit when settled and then dissolves
– ‘Jai Ma Durgaa’, praise to Ma Durga
– “Anand hi anand” explaining how one is in complete bliss when totally with Guru. Whether you are awake or sleeping, Guru is with you and transforms you so you become one with his consciousness.
– “Chodne hain tou chod nisha” explains about not living life for the worldly self but being in Guru’s grace, living life for others and attaining self so that one becomes an example for others.
– “Ram jai jai Ram” explaining about Lord Ram as the cause of my existence.
I did a reading of Durga Stuti for all the nine days of Navratri, the translation in Hindi of Durga Saptashati, a Sanskrit text of 700 verses praising Ma Durga. It explains how Durga, Ma Kali have the power of all the gods, and how the various demons were killed so the gods could live peacefully. It also explains how the goddess helps mortal beings by fulfilling their wishes, protecting them from diseases and taking away all fears.
I prayed for the welfare of humanity at large, to release people from fear of the coronavirus and chanted Gayatri Mantra and Mahamrityunjay mantra 108 times every day.
Hope to continue in my small way, adding value to society.”
MA Milica conducted 7 programs (3 ‘Power of Purity’ meditations with Satsang (friendly discourses), 2 group Mai-Tri method sessions, online chanting session, ‘Freedom’ meditation) with a total of 173 participants and she recorded one motivational video inspired by Mohanji. Milica shares,
“Going online was really going out of the comfort zone for me but it was truly liberating once it all started. Mohanji‘s energy was felt in each session and was truly transforming. Response from participants was absolutely amazing and all shared how it is helping them so much. Most comments were how light and peaceful they felt. One participant said I am loving lockdown with sessions like this.
I personally had two incredible experiences. First was during a Mai-Tri group session where I witnessed light covering me inside and out. I felt expanded and light even the next day. Each cell in my body felt so alive and buzzing in the light. I find Mai-Tri such a blessing in these times as we easily get influenced by heavy emotions around us.
Mohanji has shown us His presence and blessed us all as all participants felt the same bright light. Another experience was during chanting Maha Vishu chant for the whole world to be well and protected. Mohanji South Africa organised this event and we all took turns to chant continuously for 12 hours. I had been very unwell that morning and had aches and pains all over my body but when I started chanting, I became so energized and recovered totally. The mantra hasn’t stopped playing in my head. I immediately recorded a video of my experience to motivate other people to join in too.
First session of Mai-Tri was opened by a friend who has coronavirus and she shared how much the one-on-one Mai-Tri session and previous session of ‘Power of Purity’ meditation have helped her and how she is recovering so fast. She wrote a powerful testimonial the same day expressing her gratitude to Mohanji. All participants were so deeply touched by her sharing and Mohanji’s powerful energy during the session that followed and transformed us all. It was unforgettable.”
A participant on one of my online Mai-Tri sessions shares,
“Towards the end, my eyes were softly drenched in tears. It was a deeply moving experience, hard to put into words. Something was happening within me. Mohanji with His celestial entourage, our Datta Sampradaya, was at work. The wondrous energies in my body were shifting into higher gears. From head to toe, I suddenly became alive on the inside. I went into a very expanded state. The divine electric currents within me were (and still are as I write this) acutely palpable. My body heated up, and grace was flowing through by way of the electric currents running through me. I felt SWITCHED ON…”
Another person who was diagnosed with Covid-19 and attended all my online sessions shared her experience of healing here.”
“Some participants of the online Mai-Tri Method shared their experience. One said she felt like a laser of light going through her. One reported later that it actually helped her Consciousness Kriya practice when she experienced seeing the great Mahavatar Babaji. One said the energy during Mai-Tri was intense and focused and that in Mohanji‘s energy she felt centered. Another who experiences stress because of her work situation, low immunity and lack of energy to cope, felt she lost the sense of connection to the divine, and after the session reported she felt deep relaxation as the Mai-Tri energy reached her and she said a burden and weight was lifted off her. She was very intrigued as to how this Mai-Tri knew what to release from her system. She felt the session was still releasing blockages from her even after it ended. One could also feel the stress was lifted off her. A man messaged to say that the Mai-Tri had helped him through his break-up and difficult circumstances around it.”
MA Sameera Khan conducted 3 programs (1 ‘Power of Purity’ meditation, 1 Online Yoga and 1 chanting session). She was a co-host with MA Milica Bulatovic for the meditation session.
“After the meditation session one of my WhatsApp acquaintances had mentioned that he really enjoyed the meditation, another mentioned that she thoroughly enjoyed the meditation without me even asking her!”
After my Online Yoga for Calm and Inner Peace session, the video received 65 Likes/ Loves and 351 Views from my personal page alone. One viewer mentioned that this was, “So cool” that she can just walk directly from her bed into a live Yoga class :). Others were thankful that they could at least practice and attentively learn the asanas within the comfort of their own home. This is a huge relief for many who appreciate physical activity but do not have the means at home.
I do feel people need to be somewhat physical at home as well as this can boost their immunity and mental stability. Traditional Yoga is especially important for maintaining both internal and external immunity. Thank you to my Master Brahmarishi Mohanji and our late Yoga Guru, Sanjay Sir for inspiring me to continue and spread the traditional teachings of Yoga.
On March 31st, South Africa conducted a day of Maha Vishnu’s Chant of “Om Namo Bhagavathe Vaasudevaya”. This was a continuous day of chanting, with chanters chanting from 30 minutes to 1 hour online. Amazing energy and inspiration came out of this and myself continued mentally chanting even after our chosen time slot. The vibration of immense peace and stillness could be felt throughout the day. Due to the positive vibrations felt amongst the chanters, South Africa is currently planning another full day of chanting 😉
Jai Gurudev, Jai Mohanji for making this possible. This was definitely not possible especially with the many challenges arising such as technical issues and personal issues regarding confidence and nervousness of online activities. For many of us, trusting and going with the flow with complete surrender to Mohanji was the only means by which all of this materialised.

MA Sonia conducted 6 programs in total (chanting and Bhajans session, online Mai-Tri Method) with around 1272 people who joined or viewed. Sonia shares,
“Personally, public speaking was always the biggest block for me and throat chakra (energy center in our body) consistently inconsistent in expressing myself, since a very young age. When all of us received the message from Mohanji to go live and do online programs following the lockdowns that happened globally, I knew that it was now time for change and it was only with Mohanji’s grace that it all flowed through. Yes, there were challenges, from throat being blocked, to internet connection dead for almost 12 days now, to feeling sick in the stomach, having to change laptop 5 minutes before the session due to technology problems to sneezing badly one hour before the session. But nothing stopped me from going live, once I accepted that this fear had controlled me for too long and it was time to let go. There is nothing to lose when Mohanji is holding my hand and guiding through.
Once I wore the Acharya Mala (sacred beads blessed for Acharyas), Father took over and it all flowed through, no more sneezing, nothing at all. 20 people joined online and had beautiful experiences. Personally for me, I felt a lot of light in the room and heart expansion, Mohanji’s presence was felt throughout. The next day I was asked to do Facebook Live, which I had never used before. This was a breakthrough for me – to go online and speak to unknown people out there, who I can’t see. On top of it, I still had a sore throat. I surrendered it all to Mohanji and went ahead with it. It was very beautifully received, just like the session before that. Some old Facebook friends joined and were very appreciative of the session.
I also did my first fundraising online experience, sharing and singing bhajans (devotional songs) session for Ammucare Charitable Trust on 2nd April to help raise funds in this tough time, as they reach out to thousands of people to provide meals on the table. This was well received and reached 314 people, and I will be sharing more on this. I surrender it all to my beloved Guru Mohanji, who is the inspiration, facilitator and the doer in all the actions. Attendees of the online programs I conducted were very pleased and expressed words of gratitude. They said it was beautiful, intense, angelic, blissful. Some said they were out of senses and in another world and that they are looking forward to more such sessions. Some got goosebumps hearing me chanting.”
MA Rakshitha conducted 30 sessions (16 sessions of Mahamrityunjaya mantra chanting, 13 sessions of Gayatri mantra chanting, 1 session for chants of Nirvana Shatakam, Hanuman Chalisa and a couple of devotional songs) with a total of about 620 participations. Rakshitha shares,
“Usually when I conduct the monthly meditations at Sai Mandir here in Melbourne, I go very blank and allow Mohanji to take over. Many times a lot of information comes through my voice-box, information that I would not even have known until that time and very new to me. I have clarified a couple of these with Mohanji, asking if this was true, to ensure I was not bluffing and he has confirmed that the messages that came through me were correct.
During the 15th March meditation at Sai Mandir, when we finished with the breathing exercises and short Mai-Tri session, I was suddenly telling people that we were going to chant 41 days of Gayatri Mantra & Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra for the world – one in the morning and the other in the evening. I was even asking for volunteers to help me set up Zoom ID and help me with chanting. Within a few minutes we had 3 people who had volunteered ( of the 7 that attended the session) and we kick-started the chanting sessions the very next day.
Everyday at 6 am since 19th of March, we have been chanting the Gayatri Mantra for purification and protection. There are 2 girls who have taken up the chanting on alternate days and I remain as their backup. I do all the groundwork for them (Whatsapp messages, posters, screen sharing etc.) and serve as their backup and chant with them every single day. We regularly have 6-8 people who join us for this session.
In the evenings at 8.30 pm since 16th March, we have been chanting the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra for relieving stress and fear everyday. We do have few people who expressed their interest to take the lead of chanting on certain days and we happily offer them to be the voice for the day. The day where no one has offered to chant, I chant them myself during the Zoom sessions. So far I have done about 7 chanting sessions by myself. The remaining days I do all the groundwork, give the opening and closing comments on a few days. We have about 12-15 participants who join us regularly for all sessions.
On 22nd March, I went live on my Facebook profile offering some chants (Nirvana Shatakam, Hanuman Chalisa and a couple of devotional songs) in the form of music.
Apart from the above, during March I have offered 3 online sessions for my work colleagues, 2 of them were online Mai-Tri sessions, one session teaching them various breathing techniques to achieve inner balance and de-stress, and one Conscious Walking session. Everyday I spend about 1-2 hours speaking to friends/ family/ acquaintances around me spreading positivity, and doing counseling sessions as these are stressful times. Most of them were attended by 5-6 participants.
I have sent a few messages on Whatsapp stressing the importance of chanting, and also clarifying the 3 levels of protection one must do during such sensitive times (Energy level protection, emotional protection & physical protection), which were well received by everyone and I received a lot of personal thank-you messages, asking for permissions to forward the same to their circles.
I would also like to confess here that though all the above seems like Rakshitha has done it, there was nothing that Rakshitha actually did, other than being present herself physically. They were all happening through my physical body. There is only one doer and one creator and HE IS MY DATTA SWAROOP PARABRAHMA MOHANJI. With absolute surrender at his Lotus Feet.”
