Acharyas Act On Compassion During Corona: Part 1

By Mohanji Acharyas from Canada, UK, USA, Peru, Serbia, Macedonia, Croatia

From 11th to 30th March 2020

Inspired by Mohanji’s proclamation of  “Karuna during Corona” during this global crisis of Coronavirus pandemic, Mohanji Acharyas have responded to this call by accelerating the pace of our activities. In doing so and keeping in mind the word ‘Karuna’, which is Sanskrit for compassion, we are viewing the crisis as an amazing opportunity for people to reinvent themselves in a positive way. And to this effect, Mohanji Acharyas (and other Mohanji Foundation volunteers) all over the world, have come forth in full enthusiasm, swinging into action on all available social media channels selflessly offering our programs free of charge.

We share below all of our contributions during this time. In addition, we also strive to lead by example by choosing to live vegan/vegetarian lifestyles. Compassionate living means being kind not only to others of our own species, but to all sentient beings who share the planet with us. 

Firstly, we are super excited to share that in March 2020 we launched our new Mohanji Acharyas (MA) YouTube channel

CANADA

MA Manisha conducted 42 programs out of which 41 programs were daily chanting of Gayatri and Mahamrtyunjaya mantra and one was an online ‘Power of Purity’ meditation.

MA Violeta conducted 5 online programs. She shares below her experience from the last few weeks,

“Breakthrough experience for me was when I intended to do an Online Mai-Tri session with camera on. I didn’t feel panic since I felt I was not the doer (the state of surrender of activities to a spiritual master). Chanting on the Zoom platform with the camera off was not a big problem, especially because my voice was reinforced by Mohanji’s energy and power. The voice was strong and clear. A message was given to me through a comment by MA Sanjay Acharya who said that I should lead the chanting sessions more often. As the situation with Coronavirus in Canada was getting worse, I felt an urge to do more, to influence more people to be positive. I could feel a burning sensation through my spine (usually felt due to master’s blessing). My cheeks were flushed red. I was constantly online on Facebook, sharing interesting posts with messages of love, faith and hope. Inspired by Mohanji, I started answering some questions on Facebook Toronto Vegan group, mentioning that I knew of a few online group meditations. When people started enquiring, I contacted my fellow Acharyas and organized an online Zoom ‘Power of Purity’ meditation for vegans the same evening. There were 10 people. In spite of  3 internet interruptions, 8 participants stayed till the end. I was spending more time online, busy chanting, meditating or surfing the internet. I noticed that there was silent resistance growing in my closest family members. They didn’t understand the deeper meaning of these activities. Feeling particularly exhausted one day, I felt I needed to go to the Mohanji spiritual center to recharge and rejuvenate. I heard bitter words from my husband accusing me of neglecting home and family. I just took a deep breath, went to my prayer room, bowed in front of Mohanji’s photo, surrendered the entire burden in front of his lotus feet and asked him to bring the Mohanji spiritual center to my home. I left the room comforted and suddenly magic happened! My husband apologized and said that we should go to the center and my nephew even offered help with preparing lunch. It was like stepping into a different reality. This showed me that empowered by Mohanji, I can be stable and handle any situation with calmness and patience, no matter how chaotic or painful it is.”

MA Ljiljana conducted about 25 sessions (online chanting for increasing positivity and Mohanji’s meditations‘Blossoms of Love’, ‘Freedom’, and ‘Power of Purity’) with around 240 people participating. Ljiljana shares, 

My very first spontaneous reaction to this situation when I noticed that people had started becoming fearful, was to call the people that I knew, especially those who live by themselves like the elderly. I sensed great anxiety and confusion in them from listening to the official news, programs and from talking to others. I also spoke to my friends and family and passed on courage to all of them through my positive attitude, inspiring them through what I am doing these days, how many different activities I was performing in order to help, and how rich I am feeling inside because of it. I advised them to stay away from the TV as much as possible, because it only increases the fear. I told them to take good care of themselves, to think positive, to learn to accept life as it is, to listen to good and relaxing music, to occupy themselves with some work and to surrender to Divinity God as per their orientation.
Inspired by my great spiritual master, I also wrote true stories/articles every day and when I shared them, I received very positive feedback from friends and strangers alike. Some of those comments were:

Please continue writing, I really need it”,

 “Thank you a lot, I am working on all of these points that you advised”,

 “Please keep sending”, 

“That is very true”

and other words of gratitude. I was feeling really strong inside, contented, and happy that I could, as a instrument of my master (Mohanji), make a difference in someone’s life.”

MA Dheena Naidoo conducted 12 programs. Dheena shares,

I commenced my programs/activities on March 19, 2020. The main purpose of these programs was to send healing energies to all beings in the world during these times of the pandemic situation. When I was notified of online programs, I could not connect online as the connection/system I have is weak and cuts off frequently. 

I continued with the programs I was doing on a daily basis. The following activities were included in my daily offerings: Devi Kavacham, Shiva Kavacham, chanting of Maha Mrityunjaya mantra, Gayatri mantra, the chant ‘loka samastha sukhino bhavanthu’, one of Mohanji’s meditations each day and concluding with Mohanji Aarti (sacred ritual which helps energize and cleanse oneself and the space of the heavy energies).

These sessions were conducted daily from 8.00 am to 10.00 am with four regular attendees. They enjoyed the sessions very much,  feeling good spending their time in prayer together and sending out their positive energies to people who were trying to overcome their fears of the virus. The energies in the room were very high at times, increasing their own spiritual energy. They felt very protected as a result, and their fears of contacting the virus began to abate. They also began feeling an improvement in their connection with Mohanji.”

Mohanji Acharyas

UK

MA Moushumi conducted around 25 sessions online such as the Mai-Tri method, chanting, breathing techniques, body stretches, meditations, reading Mohanji’s blogs and ‘Power of Purity’ book.

Moushumi shares,

“I received a few messages from people when I conducted sessions in this way. As most of us are housebound, introducing these exercises has helped them a lot. Some of my friends’ children have loved it too. It’s always beneficial, to relax physically, emotionally and mentally before starting any activity and this was everyone’s favorite part.”

MA Shyama conducted 17 sessions (10 devotional singing sessions and ‘Power of Purity’ book reading, 6 chanting and 1 meditation) with a total of about 1200+ views.

Shyama shares,

“After the sessions, I have received positive comments from people saying the bhajans (devotional singing sessions) were soothing and that the chanting was lovely or that they liked the messages from Mohanji. On a personal level, it’s been a journey of self-discovery. Using social media platforms is alien to me, – it took a while to learn the various methods of connecting to people online, with a lot of energy support from Mohanji’s and also other Acharyas of course. Going live on Facebook is quite nerve-wracking, but I’m learning to let go, knowing Mohanji will take care. It’s wonderful to see people join us regularly. Immense gratitude to our dearest Mohanji for holding our hands, guiding and inspiring us.”

MA Chai conducted 19 sessions leading about 8 chanting sessions, which included Gayatri and Maha Mrtyunjaya mantra chanting sessions, 2 meditation sessions and 9 sessions of Mandarin programs, with a total about 700 views.

Chai shares,

“The news of Coronavirus has been spreading faster than the real virus itself. Living in the UK, I was worrying about my mother and family members in Malaysia. The Malaysian government had announced a lockdown a week before the UK. “What can I do? ” – this was the question that appeared in my mind, and then Mohanji‘s message, ‘Call for Action’ came at the same time. Without a second thought, I volunteered to translate the subtitles of Mohanji’s messages on Coronavirus, with the hope that these messages could reach more of the educated Chinese, especially the families far away. But I’m not a technology gadget person in daily life. In fact, I don’t even have an internet connection installed at home. No WiFi at home? In this century? Can you believe that?! Surely I must be joking?! 

Translation was happening very slowly with my mobile phone data. Another of Mohanji‘s messages came: we have to come out of our comfort zones to go LIVE on social media!!! What a shock! Okay. Fine. Severe chest pain began when the message got into my mind. At this point of time, the UK team was working together and taking turns to lead the Gayatri and Maha Mrtyunjaya mantra chanting, and also short meditations on Zoom where everybody was happy. We had about a week of team programs. But Mohanji knew we could go further to reach more people. So, individual social live sessions had to happen. With any challenge or kind of test, I would respond with chest pain immediately. But Mohanji knows. 

Everything had to be translated to Mandarin, before I could start on Facebook Live. My first Facebook live in Mandarin happened on 23 March 2020, 7 AM UK time, which is 3 PM in Malaysia. I translated into Mandarin the basic instructions for practice of A-U-M, the 5-speed breathing exercise and chanting of Gayatri mantra and peace mantra, and posted them on Facebook a day before so people could follow and chant along. ‘Freedom’ meditation was included at the end of the program. 

Before the program started, I mentally talked to Mohanji and asked for protection with Mohanji Gayatri. The Facebook live continued with severe chest pain and words often stuck in the throat or the mind somehow going blank on and off. I thought of Mohanji after the breathing exercise. When I started to chant the Gayatri mantra, my lips were trembling, but I smiled to myself and surrendered, letting Mohanji take over. Suddenly, the fragrance of vibhuti filled the room. I felt Mohanji was there, sitting next to me. I could feel something coming out from the chest. Feeling light, I continued chanting. The program ended with His grace. This was again a reminder to surrender fully and wholeheartedly. There is no time to think of how or when or what others think about you. Mohanji just made it happen. And the Mandarin program which began on 23rd  March 2020 continues till date. It has become a daily feature. 

Through the pandemic, so much relearning has happened as well as the resharpening of skills and of reinvention as well and cutting the comfort habit and the fear. Mohanji’s messages on Coronavirus have given clear signs and direction. Press the reset button on ourselves. Just come back to our true selves. The pure and original. Kindness and compassion. The Avadhuta-to-be. As Mohanji said,

“When you give time, I will give timelessness.”

The results of engagement with the Chinese group is far behind other nations. But I believe there is always a starting point where Mohanji plays his role and the whole tradition of liberation (tradition of powerful spiritual masters) supports beyond caste and race. I am willing to continue to be a medium, a useful medium for the Tradition. Please use this appearance called ‘Chai’ to serve all the children of Mohanji, all the children of the universe. May I always be in the consciousness of Mohanji under his lotus feet.”

USA

MA Lata Ganesh conducted 33 programs (mantra chanting, yoga, breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation, reading Mohanji‘s ‘Atmananda’ series of blogs (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5 and part 6) and online Mai-Tri Method) with a total reach of about 4500 people on Facebook in only 5 sessions. Generating a sense of unity within the Mohanji USA team despite geographical distance, Lata worked with the country team to organize a 12-hour group mantra chanting to raise the frequency and enhance positivity in the world – from dawn to dusk – which was a big success. About 20 participants took part in leading the chants and about 100 people participated. Approximately 30,000 chants were chanted. The Mohanji Canada team also participated in the chanting.

Lata shares, 

Mohanji‘s ‘Atmananda’ series of blog readings generated much interest in the larger community of my friends and colleagues and other Facebook communities and groups, offering an expanded reach.
It has been a great experience for me, starting with helping me go beyond my comfort zone. I got a lot of inspiration from the Mohanji family around the world and I am thankful to each of them. It is also heartening and encouraging to note that people from unexpected quarters are viewing my 4 Facebook videos which have had 987 views so far. Every day for the past two weeks, I have had calls/texts from people thanking me for the session and expressing how they overcame their physical and/or emotional pain and felt totally at peace and free. One participant, who is very regular for both the daily sessions, did not connect on one morning and I called at the end of the program to enquire about her. She said that she has been struggling with sleep for the past several weeks now but on that day, she slept so well and though she heard her alarm go off, could not get out of the bed because she was in blissful sleep and witnessing this beautiful dream of Mohanji, who had knocked at her door and entered her house calling out her name. The experience was so real for her and it was actually when I phoned her to enquire, was the time when she woke up from the dream and was still in a daze. My heartfelt surrender and gratitude to Mohanji for inspiring and empowering me and others every moment.”

MA Piamas conducted 8 energizing programs (6 live yoga sessions, 1 group chanting session, 1 session of relaxation breathing exercises) with a total 981 views.

Piamas shares her journey in brief, 

The past couple of weeks have been quite an adventure in conducting live programs as an Acharya. After Mohanji gave His initial messages to the Acharyas, urging all of us to take action, I really felt the urgency to conduct some online activities. However, a couple of days went by, and I was not able to put myself out there. I felt stuck, and was feeling frustrated with myself because I had a fear of putting myself out in public. A couple of days later, Barbara had reached out to me to offer help if I needed any, with conducting programs. She suggested that I offer something daily online. As if Mohanji knew about my frustration and this feeling of being stuck, I feel as if He had sent a messenger, Barbara, to help motivate me and help me get ‘unstuck’.
Many people have benefited from the online chanting and yoga sessions I conducted. One person thanked me for offering the online yoga, since she is no longer able to attend her weekly yoga classes at her gym.  Another person said that he felt extremely relaxed after a session of chanting of the Gayatri mantra.
I have learned to come out of my comfort zone, and to share information and classes through Facebook live streaming.  I experienced Mohanji’s ‘presence without presence’ when the viewers experienced the relaxing energies generated by chanting the Gayatri mantra. I also felt an indescribable sense of peace and stillness in myself after conducting the online live chanting.
I am so thankful for this opportunity of self growth, and being able to add value to people’s lives. I am thankful to Mohanji for allowing this to happen, and surrender everything to Him.”

MA Bhavani Nair conducted 18 sessions (5 Online Mai-Tri sessions, 1 ‘Power of Purity’ meditation, 7 chanting sessions, 2 Facebook live videos to spread awareness, 3 kids program). 

Bhavani shares some of the testimonials she received after the sessions:

  • Vidya Shankar: Thank you, Bhavani and Vidya for a wonderful session.
  • Mona: I echo the same sentiments. Thanks ladies, I very much appreciate your efforts. It’s imperative for kids to learn and imbibe good teachings and meditation and especially during these challenging times.
  • Ojal, Mrig enjoyed today’s session, Mrig was jumping with joy saying she could concentrate better today and liked the story as well. Thank you very much, Bhavani, for the wonderful session for kids. I really want both of them to learn and impart Mohanji’s teachings in their life. Praying to Mohanji to bless them – Jai Mohanji!
  • Thank you, Bhavani, for the Mai-Tri session. Actually, this afternoon I joined Lakshmi’s session and after a few minutes, my network was lost. I got so bored then Lakshmi phoned to say that I could join your session in the evening. I can feel how Mohanji is working behind the scenes each time. I was meant to be with you guys to experience the powerful Mai-Tri, beautifully sung Hanuman Chalisa and Krishna song on the occasion of Ekadashi. For me, each session is completely different and equally powerful. My heartfelt gratitude to dear Mohanji. Love you all!
  • Hi, I joined a couple of the sessions and the experience I have had is remarkable. And to be honest with you, I have been practicing the creation of the golden dome on my own, anytime I am feeling different. But I have not been able to attend the last two sessions since all my classes resumed through online learning and I have a class at that time. And on other days me and my mom had been practicing lighting diyas during sundown and chanting on our own. I felt bad for not letting your wife know though. But please let her know the experience was so worthy and I have used the method to connect with Ma Durga or Lord Shiva through the White light energy. I can’t thank you enough for this. Before this, I felt like I was losing touch with God and goddesses because every time I prayed my mind wandered off but nowadays, I have been catching myself connecting with them through the vision of some white light.

MA Bimal Nair conducted 3 meditation sessions for kids in his class. 

MA Geeta conducted 17 sessions (14 mantra chanting, 2 ‘Power of Purity’ mediations, 1 Sai Satcharitra reading session) all on Zoom with a total of 170 participants. The chants have been 108 counts of Gayatri/Mahamrityunjaya/Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya/Roga Nivarana mantras, Dhanvantari Mantra, and Aditya Hrdayam.

Geeta shares, 

Wanted to report an experience of someone who participated in this morning’s 108 Gayatri mantra live chanting that I led. She is an older lady who is not tech savvy so she called in on the phone line to join the session, instead of a computer. She said she sat down to chant after a bath and lighting a lamp. It was sunrise time when the chanting began. It occurred to her to get up and open the blinds and let the morning sun pour in.  Every morning, there are birds on the patio that visit to have their breakfast of the birdseed that she scatters there. She said as she opened the blinds, there were a few birds sitting outside the patio door. While some flew away after a couple minutes or so, like most birds do, seven birds continued to sit there, absolutely still. She said those seven birds sat motionless for about 40 minutes with their bellies down to the ground as if meditating and listening to the chanting. She said she stood there the entire time looking at them. She said she was desperate to document it by taking a video but since her phone was playing the chanting, she didn’t want to touch it, in case it disconnected the Zoom call. Feeling awestruck, and recognizing this as something unusual she was privileged to witness, she asked that her deep gratitude be conveyed to Mohanji for this grace.

Someone texted to ask me one day if I have recorded myself chanting and if I am playing it back every day. I clarified that it is a live chant everyday. To my reply on my WhatsApp group, I then received this response:

“That it is live and your own presence, can be felt even through the airwaves. May Waheguruji give you abundant good health always. Tere bhane sarbat da bhalla. Thank you, Geetaji!”

‘”was wonderful joining the chanting group. Look forward to many more chants and chanting. Thank you.” – person joining from Mysore, India

‘The chanting today was very special for me. Very energising AND calming. Ma (Divine Mother) was with me.”

MA Jayashree conducted 16 sessions (14 ‘Power of Purity’ (POP) meditations and Q&A sessions, 2 group chanting) with a total of 74 participants. Jaya shares the POP meditation experiences of some of the participants:

Thanks a lot for the POP today. Really appreciate the amazing energy. Jai Mohanji

– Thank you. This is the best and the worst of times, so to say. Amazing work is being done by you

– Thank you so much, dear Jaya . I would like to join tomorrow as well. I felt very happy, content and positive.

– Thank you Jaya,you conduct such a beautiful session, more people should enjoy

– All thanks to you for conducting these sessions

– Felt very peaceful and kept me calm all throughout the day

– Your talk was very good.

MA Laurie Ann conducted 17 “Conscious Recovery Meditation Meetings – CRMM” programs (Mohanji-inspired program for alcoholics and addicts in a 12-step recovery format consisted of inspiring readings, one of Mohanji’s guided meditations and open sharing). Laurie shares, 

“Inspired by Mohanji, CRMM was created in 2019. During the Acharya training in Mohanji’s physical presence, I could feel the divine suggestion to create a “Meditation meeting” for the recovery community who are used to attending 12-step meetings. The recovery community consists of alcoholics and addicts who are clean and sober, not using drugs or alcohol and in active recovery. I myself have been clean and sober for 18 years, and during most of that time have dealt with deep depression. The meditations have helped me lift the level of my depression and so I wanted to share them with others in recovery, as I felt that many of them also battle depression issues. For this initiative, I used Mohanji’s tenets of positivity, kindness, unconditional love and ahimsa (non-violence) to not just expose this community to these ideals, but to suggest that we all “strive to practice them in all aspects of our lives”.

I was going to add a phone/online meeting to my regular routine of three in-person meetings a week and had been thinking about also starting a Facebook page for CRMM for a while. This was way before the Coronavirus hit. Then when the virus hit, I thought to myself, “This is why you should have done this already”. 

One of the regulars in the CRMM is an elderly gentleman with health issues. So I immediately got a conference call line number in place in time for the regular Thursday 7:15 am meeting and started the FB page, ‘Conscious Recovery Meditation’ the same day as well. I made changes to the flyer and put it on the Facebook page and sent it to my recovery network.

Since 12th March 2020, I have conducted three CRMM phone meetings a week. As I was looking after my own mental health, I increased my daily chanting and knew it was helping me. I decided to do a ‘beginner’s’ short chanting session intended for the same recovery audience and called it, ‘Chanting in Recovery’. I researched the health benefits and distilled them down so that it would sound relevant and meaningful enough to prospective (recovery) attendees to entice them to give it a try. The unofficial start was on Wednesday, 18th March. I did get a flyer made up by the graphics team. However, I wanted to do some more beta testing with my audience and have held two sessions a week since then. It has already been advertised as a regular program to the main recovery group/attendees and on the Facebook page.

Addicts are typically medicated for ADHD, bi-polar disorder, manic depression due to significant trauma and are often overusing caffeine and it is harder for them to sit still and get calm.  The attendees always thank me for holding the meeting saying they feel calm, relaxed, hopeful, serene, etc.  Some state how grateful they are for these meetings and state they are keeping them afloat during the time of the Coronavirus.

During this time, I have noticed that many friends and family have needed more support. So I have made myself available to anyone at any time if they are in crisis or in need. It is in line with the Native American belief of the community I belong to, that you are ready to do a sweat lodge outside of the ‘normal lodge schedule’ whenever anyone expresses a need for it. These on-demand CRMM meetings are my version of a ‘Mohanji Inipi’ (Sweat Lodge).

Gratefully an Acharya!
In love and service”

MA Elham shares,

“After Mohanji’s Call to Action, our (my husband and I) lives changed to miraculous days. We started having daily programs with the group of people in Iran which previously had been on a weekly basis. People were so happy and grateful to Mohanji for this daily encouragement to positivity. Every day we had 25-45 people attending, which was amazing. Many beautiful experiences, much sharing, awareness and transformation has happened in the last few weeks by Mohanji’s grace. We were full of energy everyday despite very few hours of sleep and it’s all Mohanji’s energy, nothing else. He really empowers us, the only thing we need to do is surrender. Full surrender with the heart and then the rest is assured. 

We would like to share with you all, some of the beautiful experiences of the participants in the last few weeks of Mohanji’s Call to Action. Here’s another confirmation of Mohanji’s ‘Presence without presence’ and the Power of our great Tradition. 

We surrender everything at the lotus feet of Mohanji Baba and the Tradition. 

Asma: During the online Mai-Tri session I was recalling all my life memories, all the pains and injustices that had happened to me. I was crying and calling out to the Gods and Mohanji for awareness. Then I felt a flow of white light inside me. We could feel Master Mohanji’s love through you. So thankful to Master Mohanji and you.

Bahar: A few weeks back before I joined the group, awareness was coming to me that someone extremely dear is going to come back to me and I was even waking up from sleep with gratitude for this blessing. It was afterwards that I joined your group and understood that the one who came back is Master Mohanji. It’s not been a long time since I have known about him, yet I feel him at every moment by my side. During Mahamitrunjaya chanting, I saw a waterfall of golden light on my head and then it was expanding around me as a bright golden ball. Then I saw Mohanji pouring golden powder on my head and Ajna chakra and then he tapped on my Anahata Chakras. My tears were rolling over at this joy and blessings. So grateful to dear Mohanji and you. 

Afsaneh: I lost my husband due to the Coronavirus a few weeks ago. I’m an energy healer so during those days when my husband was in hospital, I was trying to send him healing daily but feeling so drained afterwards. So one day I prayed to Mohanji to help him before starting the healing and it was then I got a message like a command saying, “Don’t interfere in his karma”. After that, I couldn’t give energy even though I tried hard. So I lost my husband then and understood I should not be interfering in karma while healing. I feel Master Mohanji is by my side guiding me all the time during this turbulent time of my life. One day after the loss of my husband, I was so down. It was impossible to accept this loss. Then I opened Mohanji’s Universe Instagram page and I saw this message and I was sure it’s Master Mohanji’s message to me: “When I say  ‘I’m with you’, I mean it. I don’t need the body to be with you – Mohanji”. I’m certain now that he’s my spiritual Master and am so grateful and joyful to be eligible to be his student. 

Mehrdad: After chanting Maha Mrtyunjaya I was feeling so high as if I had drunk 10 cans of energy drinks! I couldn’t sit still and wanted to run 10 kilometers! This can’t be normal :))

Kashani: During an online Mai-Tri session, my head started spinning and my breathing got so heavy that I felt nausea and had to lie down. Then I saw a vision of an old man with colorful lines on his forehead spreading a blanket and sitting on a wooden bench. I understood that he was a Master but didn’t know him. Then he looked at me and his gaze was giving me peace. 

(She found the picture below on Google and identified him as the man she has seen in her vision. She asked me if I knew his name and if he was still in the body (Om Sai Ram). She said she had been waiting for 20 years for such a master, looking here and there. Her wish was to be on a deserving level to become his student. So thankful to you. We’re a Mohanji Family.)

Ayda: Recently I made a new friend. He’s sick and doctors have said he has a maximum of only one year to live. Since the first day of meeting him, I have felt so close to him and he has the same feeling towards me. I was in a dilemma, wondering: “What’s this? I’m married and how come I have a feeling of love towards another man?!” The feeling was very pure but I couldn’t understand the reason; so I prayed to Master Mohanji to tell me the reason and help me. After the prayer I went to visit my friend in hospital. He told me,”When I met you, I was born again!”. With this statement I received my answer by Mohanji’s grace. 

When I was born, I had a twin, a boy but he couldn’t make it and passed away in a few days. Now I have found my brother! He’s the one I lost 39 years ago and now he’s 21. I told him about this inspiration and he replied, “I was feeling that I have known you before and the feeling was so weird. I was afraid to tell you in case you misunderstand me”. He also agrees that we’re siblings and this love is so pure. I’m so grateful to Master Mohanji for this blessing. This is all because of his grace that I have my brother back.

Raha: During Mahamrtyunjaya chanting, I had an experience unlike anything I have had before. I was chanting but then I saw an eye, the pupil color of which was changing to purple, then blue, then green. I couldn’t feel my body and was seeing Mohanji in white, holding my hands and directing me towards the eye. I could hear your chanting from the cave inside the eye. I was scared to go inside. I felt myself as a ball of light and flames of fire from the bottom which were not burning me, and every part of me was spinning. Then I was hovering and could feel that Mohanji was present all the time. I saw all the planets in harmony. Everything was in harmony, peace and silence. We were all in God’s embrace. I could see light from each corner of the earth coming out. (P.S. It was the time that all the online programs started, March 18). Mohanji put his hand on my heart and a light came to my forehead and I could hear your chanting all the way, it was a kind of guidance. I was not ready to come back when you said to be ready to open the eyes. Then I could see some humans together from the sky pouring light onto the earth and I felt they’re great Masters. Mohanji too was there with them. I was thanking everything and everyone. I saw the Coronavirus inside myself. It became one with me. I embraced and honored it and prayed to it to complete its mission. Finally Masters guided me so I could come back. For a long time I remained in that bliss. 

Another experience happened during meditation when I saw white and black clouds and it was so weird to me since I knew I was meditating and concentrating inside and now what was this. Then I saw colorful lights, purple, blue and more in my forehead. Then between my eyebrows a tunnel of light opened and it started talking to me through that. It was saying, “Don’t be scared of anything. Don’t be scared of anything that happens. Even if you get sick, I’m with you. If anything happens to the world, I’m with you. Don’t be scared if others mock you. If they leave you alone, don’t be scared. You’re here in my protection and peace. You’re in my embrace. I’m so happy you’re here.” I could see that Mohanji is inside me. It was so peaceful. So grateful to Mohanji. 

Azin (a nurse): Since I joined the group, I feel much stronger than before. When I go to work and whenever I feel low due to the hospital situation I ask Mohanji to help me and give me strength and he absolutely does so, always. I experienced a miracle and I believe it was because of Mohanji. After participating in just two sessions, there was an incident when a pot of boiling water accidentally dropped on my face, leg and hand. I thought I would be hospitalized for this but was stunned that there was only just a little burn, nothing significant. I’m sure it was his miracle. 

So we close this report with the translation of a poem of one of the participants in the name of Hamed who started saying poems for Mohanji as soon as he connected to Father. The poem was in Farsi so hopefully even after the translation, you can feel the deep bhaav (devotion) in there. 

Your eyes are tailored to be God

But I believe you himself are God 

I was in heresy the whole my life

Now along with you I can be God”

MA Vidya Rajagopalan conducted 14 sessions (5 Sri Bhagavatha Purana series for kids, 3 group reading of Sai Satcharitra, 4 mediation for kids, 1 ‘Blossoms of Love’ meditation, 1 chanting session of Vishnu Sahasranama chanting and Om Namo Bhagavathe Vasudevaya) with a total of 600+ views.

“The ‘Blossoms of Love’ meditation was my most powerful ‘Blossoms of Love’ yet. All who attended felt the intensity of the meditation and a few even asked about the breathing we did at the beginning. It was a group of Sai Baba devotees and they were doing the BoL meditation by Mohanji for the first time. I attended the Navaratri homa too each day and greatly thankful for being able to participate.

The Sri Bhagavatha Purana series for kids started on March 27. It has been a very satisfying and enlightening experience for me personally. I am doing this with my daughter, and it is wonderful to bond through preparing for the live broadcast each day. I have always loved the stories from the Bhagavatham and have read it before. But as Father (Mohanji) says, the experience is different now. I am able to see the unifying ideas that the stories present and feel a sense of purpose as I read them. It is amazing how these stories, as old as they are, are relevant even today as they were much earlier. I am able to feel that and believe it shows in my expression each day. An example of even more divine grace was that Day 9 of the reading happened to be Ekadashi, very auspicious for chanting and prayer and fasting. So overall this is a humbling experience – to think that I could present morals to the general public through the Lord’s stories and go live on Facebook too! I am also noticing that I feel a sense of pride and joy at being a Mohanji Acharya, in a way that is deeper than before. At a time when many are feeling anxious and stressed, we are joining together in an effort to help others stay positive. In fact, there is no fear or stress; only a sense of purpose – what more can I do and how can I do it? I am extremely thankful and grateful to dearest Father for all this – koti koti pranaams, Father!

My eternal gratitude and lots of love for Father. I would also like to thank all the Acharyas and others involved in the Foundation activities.”

PERU

MA Mirela started with online Zoom sessions on 17th March and conducted 7 sessions till 30th (4 online Mai-Tri Method, 1 satsang (friendly discourse), ‘Blossoms of Love’ and ‘Power of Purity’ meditations) with a total 177 views of those who joined.

Mirela shares,

“It has been a very challenging experience for me, especially in the beginning, firstly because I am not good at dealing with FB, Zoom, etc. and secondly even though I completed the requirements to become a Mai-Tri practitioner, I had never actually done it because I was doubting myself. So while I was looking at other Acharyas doing things online, the anxiety was building up, but I knew that I had to do it – it wasn’t about me. Helena Bjelakovic from Croatia and her son Milan taught me how to use Zoom, and Mohanji Croatia offered their Zoom account,and as we are in different time zones, our programs were not going to overlap. I viewed different Acharyas programs on Zoom and FB many times, and wrote down in detail everything I was going to say. I am confident when conducting meditations, since I have been doing it every Sunday in my apartment for more than 2 months, but going on my FB profile to tell people to join me on Zoom was another challenge. I got physically sick the day of the first Zoom session. Nevertheless, there is this moment when you realize that it’s not about you, that you are just being available, and that Mohanji is doing everything, and that you have just to surrender. I think that I go through those moments every day. Ownership of my actions is still very present; I am aware of it.

So we started on the 17th March, and every day we have had  a session at 6 pm, Peruvian time. As the majority of people don’t know about Mohanji and are not familiar with Indian culture, we are trying to do different things every day. One day we have the Mai-Tri method, then HSTY stretching exercises with ‘Freedom’ meditation, then longer meditation (‘Blossoms of Love’ or ‘Power of Purity’), reading a story plus meditation, satsang about certain topics (anxiety, fear, uncertainty, anger, acceptance, etc) with meditation and so on. While having satsang, we are combining two views on certain topics – life coaching point of view and Mohanji’s point of view. Why are we doing that? We want to show to the participants that Mohanji´s teachings are not something far from their reality, that his teachings are spiritual, and firmly rooted in reality, practicality and/or everyday life. I am a certified life coach, but the one usually talking about the life coaching point of view is Martha Bazan. She started helping me last year with WhatsApp posts, and has completed Mai-Tri method training as well. As the participants loved those satsangs, and we didn’t have enough time for all questions, we decided that starting the 1st of March on each Wednesday, we will have a full hour satsang session for those interested, followed by the usual yogic stretching.

People’s comments are very good – they feel peace, silence within, less anxious. After Mai-Tri, some participants wrote to me how they could feel energy in their bodies. Some of them wept, especially while working on the heart chakra. They love the vibration of mantras. Some told us they feel blessed to be the part of the group, and that our sessions are keeping them calm. It is nice when we meet every day at 6, because we have Juana who lives in Brussels, Maria Ines in the Aruba Islands, Estela in Cordova, Argentina, Andrea in Santiago de Chile, Maya in Ecuador.

Regarding the Navaratri homa in India, I was listening in just for short periods of time because it was starting right after our sessions, and usually people were writing to me privately after sessions, telling me about how they felt, their problems, asking me questions, etc.”

SERBIA

MA Devi Mohan conducted 14 sessions (6 online Mai-Tri sessions, 7 days of leading Navaratri Homa, 1 YouTube video for the channel Sai Baba’s Devotee Speaks) with a total of about 66,000 views.

MA Izabela conducted 9 meditations through Zoom (‘Power of Purity’, ‘Blossoms of Love’, ‘Bliss of Silence’) with a total of 138 active participants. She also conducted 3 satsangs (friendly discourses) together with MA Dragan after his Online Mai-Tri sessions. 

Izabela shares, 

“Other than experienced meditators, I also invited acquaintances who had never meditated in their lives or ever tried Mohanji‘s meditations. Apart from meditating, each session was made personal as we also shared experiences from that day or we spoke on a certain topic, e.g. panic and fear and how to overcome them with awareness, accepting ourselves and others, love, etc. The meditators shared with us that we Mohanji Acharyas are like the Sun to them, giving them stability and confidence in this period. Most of them said extremely strong energy was felt during meditations – a sense of group connection; a sense of Mohanji’s presence during meditations and Mohanji Energy Transfer; a sense of calm and that everything will be fine after meditation; a feeling that they are not alone and that we are family; a feeling that they can ask me for help as an Acharya and not just meditate together.

During the post Mai-Tri satsangs we talked about everything that surrounds us right now. I shared a few  tips and tricks on how to quickly reduce anxiety, as well as about the benefits of the online Acharya programs.

Before the lockdown after 5 pm in Serbia started, I held 3 meditations at the Lotus Yoga Studio with a total of 49 participants. 80% of the meditators were people who had never participated in Mohanji‘s activities before, and 50% had never meditated in their lives. It was an opportunity to introduce them to Mohanji’s meditations, teachings, and other techniques He has given us, and they also received Mohanji Energy Transfer three times.”

MA and HSTY teacher Monika Balenovic led the live Himalayan traditional yoga session ‘Balance your body and mind’ on March 29th, which included light yogic exercises, asanas, breathing exercises for purification and deep relaxation. The full class can still be seen on HSTY Facebook page. Apart from yoga class, Monika also shared her experience through a Facebook video inspired by Mohanji on being quarantined in India with the motto – ‘From isolation to Transformation’, as well as some useful advice on how to deal with negative emotions and stress in these turbulent times.

MA Mina conducted 10 online Mai-Tri sessions, some in English, some in Serbian language, with a total of 72 active participants. 

Mina shares, 

“Apart from being a witness of positive transformation in people’s attitude and stability in life through Acharya programs, I am amazed by the promptness and precision with which Mohanji activated all of us Acharyas in such a short span of time by sending so many voice messages of inspiration and empowerment, encouraging us to take action and give to the world the best we can, during the time of crisis. No person would give so much time to train and empower so many people to work for the benefit of the world, selflessly, and without any expectation of gaining materials, popularity or glory. No selfishness in Mohanji’s tradition. Only purity. He literally proved who He is by His work during the crisis. In fact, many people had astral (non-material) experiences, witnessing what Mohanji actually does that His physical body doesn’t show. One woman told me she saw Mohanji working as a light force through Acharyas, reaching and working on thousands of people at the same time – even including the families of those who participated in Acharya programs. She said all of them received something, whatever they were ready for – freedom from drinking or smoking habits, release of fears and blockages and even healing from diseases they had had for years. She said only God knows what all Mohanji does each moment. A few other witnesses confirmed that He did such things while simply sitting or sleeping, as His consciousness travels to places and helps many even outside His physical proximity.

Regarding my programs, I can’t put in words the benefits people were blessed with, through Acharya programs. Many of them felt it themselves and will feel it in the future when they realize what kind of baggage Mohanji has removed from them. I think the experience of the woman I mentioned above, describes Mohanji’s work beautifully, so I have nothing to add: ‘He lives for the world’ is the sentence that best describes Him.”

MACEDONIA

MA Ekaterina conducted 3 programs (online chanting for increasing the positivity in the world which was open only to the youth with two participants from USA and Germany, online Mai-Tri and online bhajans (mantra) singing) with around 30 participants in total. Ekaterina shares,

On the day I was supposed to conduct online Mai-Tri after work, I wasn’t feeling well and had a headache. I thought that this would get in the way of me being able to conduct the session well. So I performed Mohanji Aarti (sacred ritual which helps energize and cleanse oneself and the space of the heavy energies) and felt better immediately. Then when we started, another obstacle showed up – people weren’t able to hear me. But I remained calm, believing that it all had to be right and that with Mohanji’s grace, it would all be solved. And it was! It’s all due to His Grace. When we set an intention, He clears the path. We had a nice session – there was a feeling of stability and confidence. At the end we imagined Mohanji in front of us, expressed gratitude to Him and imagined that He was hugging us. It was such a beautiful feeling.”

CROATIA

MA Helena conducted 40 programs (17 online chanting sessions, 17 online meditations and 6 online Mai-Tri sessions) reaching more people than she anticipated. Helena shares, 

“I also inspired others from the Mohanji Croatia team to get involved and give their contribution. People are thrilled with the idea because then they too could contribute in these days of uncertainty in various places across Croatia such as Rijeka, Pula, Krk, Split and Velika Gorica. I also inspired a couple of us from the region to practice Consciousness Kriya at 5 am in the morning, and we indeed formed a group.
The daily chanting and meditation has personally increased stability in me. I feel more peace within myself and then I have been able to pass it on to others. I feel the presence of Mohanji and other masters intensely. The desire to contribute as much as possible to spread positivity every day through these contributions and a large number of conversations with other people, is increasing. Even people who have other spiritual masters come to these programs, and they come back because they feel it is the same energy.
Initially there were many people from Zagreb (where an earthquake recently took place). After the earthquake, everyone expressed that they were calm, without panic. They said they were aware that they had gained this calm attitude through our programs. Big thanks to Mohanji. They know that only He saved them that day. I will soon write about my personal experience regarding this.”

Online program in Farsi

By Mohanji Acharyas Elham and Farshad

26th January 2020

The sixth session of the online group ‘Power of Purity’ meditation in Farsi was a huge success with the blessings of Mohanji. Around 35 people participated, out of which at least 16 were new. It was amazing to see that families joined us in small groups for this meditation and we had at least three such groups with few kids of 3/5, 6 and 15 years old.

The online program started with Aum chanting and Brahmari Pranayama followed by POP in Farsi and then a prayer for Mother Earth and its children by chanting Lokah Samastah 21 times.

Later on, Farshad talked about karma, awareness along with a few related short stories. Elham spoke enthusiatically about veganism and the violence behind the animal products. Finally, people asked many questions and we closed the program after 3 hours and everyone was so happy and grateful to Mohanji. The participants were saying that their questions were getting answered before they even asked!

Ayda said since a few days ago she has started chanting Mohanji’s Gayatri mantra. She said it felt like a dam was created to protect her from negative thoughts and her mind is now peaceful and calm. Ziba said a problem happened to her last week but when she remembered Mohanji’s face and connected to Him she got calmer. She’s so grateful to Mohanji for that.

People are getting more connected to Mohanji each time. They are very keen to know more on these subjects and keep asking how they can reinforce their connection with Him. We’re completely aware that it’s Mohanji Baba that quenches their thirst of truth and we are so grateful to Him.

Abundant Grace of Mohanji

By Mohanji Acharyas Elham and Farshad

16th January 2020

With the grace of Sai Baba and Mohanji, we started conducting the group Power of Purity meditation in Farsi at LA Pars Equality Center (a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the Iranian-American and other Persian-speaking communities by providing extensive social and legal services), Los Angeles, California, USA.

It’s interesting to mention that we reached out to them before becoming Acharyas a year ago, but they didn’t agree to have any program there. After the Acharya training, we approached them again with a request to conduct a one-hour program every month at their place. Not only did they accept but they also offered us two hours weekly to conduct programs! Such a miracle! Such is Mohanji‘s power!

On the way to the center, we were in a rush. Suddenly, a car came in our way and I turned away to the left but another car was there and Farshad and I were both just waiting for the sound of BOOM! We then felt very powerful energy that pushed the car to the right and we passed both cars miraculously! The Guru protects us 24/7 irrespective of the distance! Thank you, Father (Mohanji) and the whole Guru Mandala!

Finally, we arrived at the center. There was another challenge – one of the speakers was not working. They tried different ways but it didn’t work at all. It had been working fine just half an hour ago! Eventually, we decided to use the TV as a speaker which was not very loud but worked.

The Director kept telling me that we should not expect many people to come at the beginning but said that gradually they will come. We were not worried because the Tradition sends people and we should only be there as instruments. Out of the blue, nine people showed up! I started explaining a little bit about the meditation and asked if anyone would like to receive Mohanji Energy Transfer. Only one lady raised her hand! Then, they asked more about MET. I explained in simple terms and one by one, they raised their hands to receive it. Finally, only one lady was left who didn’t want it and then she said, “If everyone wants it, then I want it too.”

The meditation went very well. There were a few questions at the end. Farshad explained about the mind and how it functions and how to be a witness to it. The participants faces reflected happiness when leaving.

We’re always at the lotus feet of Baba Mohanji!

Online empowerment 4

By Mohanji Acharyas Elham and Farshad

12th January 2020

We conducted the fourth online group meditation which was attended by 21 people. As before, we started with pranayama (breathing exercise) followed by the ‘Power of Purity’ meditation in Farsi. Then, we all listened to the very sacred and powerful Shiva Kavacham chanted by Mohanji. In the end, we all together chanted Lokah Samastah Sukino Bhavantu 21 times for Mother Earth and her children and sent them light and energy.

During the chanting, something happened which I would like to share with everyone, specifically with Mohanji Acharyas. There was a problem at Farshad’s workplace, someone called him and so he left before the Q&A started. I felt very lonely and the thought, “How should I handle it?” came up because Farshad was supposed to talk about Yugas (eras) and then Shiva Kavacham and the story behind it. By Mohanji’s grace, I became aware that He does everything and thought, “Why should I be worried?”

IMG_2783

Whenever any technical and mechanical problem happens at Farshad’s workplace, it takes at least 2-3 hours for it to be resolved. But on this day as I was still talking to the participants and deciding to conclude the program earlier than originally planned, Farshad walked back in! It was less than 20 minutes since he left! He then talked about all the topics and we answered some other questions on how to stay positive and not be overwhelmed by sadness and sorrow. (This was a chosen topic due to a flight crash in Iran with 176 victims, everyone was in deep sorrow).

The next day, the same error happened in Farshad’s work and it took 11 hours with the efforts of 3 technicians for it to get fixed! It was very clear and obvious that Father solved the problem on the day of the meditation. Mohanji does help us and remove obstacles. The only thing we need to do is to keep the faith in Him and keep doing our work. The rest, He takes care.

Everyone who attended reported a very deep and cleansing meditation with Shiva Kavacham and they felt Mohanji’s energy.

We also had two kids during the meditation. The 4-year-old girl’s father said that she was asking when the meditation will start the whole day! Another one, a 3-year-old girl also attended!

Our deep gratitude to Mohanji who shines like the Sun on us.

Always at Mohanji’s lotus feet

Online Empowerment 3

By Mohanji Acharyas Elham and Farshad

5th January 2020

We had the third online group meditation. 19 people attended and 5 were new. We started with a short Brahmari pranayama (breathing exercise) followed by the ‘Power of Purity’ meditation in Farsi. At the end of the meditation, all of us prayed together and chanted Lokah Samastah (21 times) and sent energy to Mother Earth and all the beings. Then we talked about siddhis (spiritual powers) and answered all the questions of the participants. Some of them shared the beautiful experiences they had during the meditation. Most of them felt very intense, positive energy.

One of them said he was with his 4-year-old daughter in meditation and she sat next to him till the end of the meditation.

Another person who was meditating for the very first time said that she was in tears during meditation. She said she had anger towards her dad because she was blaming him for her mom’s death. She couldn’t meet him or talk to him after her mom passed away almost 1.5 years ago. Later, she wrote to me that two days after the program, she invited her dad home and that she doesn’t have the feeling of anger or blame anymore, instead she feels love for her father. She said that she has deep peace and unconditional joy inside and never had this kind of feelings before. She was so grateful to Mohanji and on the same night of the meditation, she had a dream of meeting Mohanji! Knowing many stories of people astrally meeting Mohanji in ‘dreams’ and getting transformed by His presence and blessings, we were sure this was not ‘just a dream’.

We’re so grateful to Mohanji for letting us be His instruments and to witness how He transforms people.

Pranams at His feet!

Tour Malaysia

By Mohanji Acharya Chai Siong

27th Nov – 12th Dec 2019

1st program on 27th Nov 2019:

The first Acharya program in Malaysia was held at Kuala Lumpur that marks a new milestone for Mohanji Malaysia. Not only was it the first Acharya program, but it was also the first-ever Chinese Acharya program for Mohanji organization worldwide.

FB_IMG_1578241106602

Even though it was a weekday and in a location notorious for its heavy traffic, a group of 14 people, totally new to Mohanji‘s family, turned up for the program.

FB_IMG_1578241042760

The program began with an introduction about Mohanji and His organization. The participants were taken through some light yogic exercises followed by a technique to develop deep focus called Gapless Breathing. The Gapless Breathing was very intense, boosting the prana (life energy) for everyone.

FB_IMG_1578241014159

We then flowed into Conscious Dancing which everyone was eagerly waiting for. It was a joy to watch everyone letting go of their inhibitions. The ‘Power of Purity’ meditation with Mohanji Energy Transfer then followed, taking everyone deep within themselves.

FB_IMG_1578240997007

The attendees enjoyed every moment of the program especially the Conscious Dancing. Faces were glowing with happiness and even though the program had ended, they were very reluctant to leave for home.

 

2nd program on 3rd Dec 2019:

The second Acharya program in Chinese was conducted in Sungai Siput (250 km from Kuala Lumpur),  my hometown located in the northeast of Malaysia.

Although an announcement of the program was done only 4 days earlier, a total of 22 people turned up for the program and this again despite it being a weekday. All the attendees were new to Mohanji’s teachings.

FB_IMG_1578241884213

The program started with sharing an experience of my journey with Mohanji and how I had benefited from His teachings. The story of my journey from self-acceptance until now of a life of inner freedom really tugged the heartstrings of all present.

FB_IMG_1578241984619

The receptivity of the group was very high as they fully participated in all the activities. We continued with Gapless Breathing which raised the group energy extremely high. Conscious Dancing increased the energy to another level. There was a complete feeling of happiness and the whole room was filled with laughter, tears of joy and love.

FB_IMG_1578241936882

With the ‘Power of Purity’ meditation and Mohanji Energy Transfer, all movements quietened down into stillness. By the end of the program, all were completely soaked in Mohanji‘s energy.

Two of my family members from Thailand are now looking forward to bring the program back to Thailand. I have agreed to help organize one such program in the near future.

This program marked another milestone to spread Mohanji‘s teachings further in Malaysia. The desire to bring Mohanji’s teaching back to my hometown is now fulfilled.

 

3rd program on 7th Dec 2019:

I conducted another Acharya program in Kuala Lumpur along with Mohanji Acharya Bridget.

Bridget and I were given an opportunity to hold a Mohanji Acharya program at Sai Amritam in Kuala Lumpur, a very powerful energy centre of Satya Sai Baba and Shirdi Sai Baba.

Bridget recalled that more than a year ago when she stepped into the centre, her whole body vibrated so much and she was breathing so heavily that her friend thought she was having a heart attack. In fact, she was blissed out.

The evening started with some chaos around the centre as there was a night market happening in that area. Bridget and I were caught in the traffic and no one wanted to give way. We were very worried as it was almost time to start the program. Amazingly without them asking, a truck reversed all the way from a side lane to let our car (only our car) pass through and we were able to make it to the centre on time.

We were welcomed by Brother Alex, a gentle, soft-spoken and truly elevated soul. He has been tasked by Satya Sai Baba to take care of the centre. He even arranged light refreshments for the attendees.

Notice of the Acharya program was given only 3 days earlier pending confirmation with Brother Alex for the program. Even then, a total of 9 people, mostly young men turned up.

FB_IMG_1578242969130.jpg

The program started with an introduction by me followed by some light stretching exercises. The young men were a bit surprised as they then realized they had many muscles that they had not used before, despite working out at gyms. We then flowed into Gapless Breathing. This is Bridget’s first experience as an Acharya, taking people through this deep inner cleansing process. It took a while for the group to get the technique right and from there on, it just flowed.

FB_IMG_1578242934021

Conscious Dancing took the energy to another level. The young men were a bit shy initially but as it progressed, they were actually dancing all around the room and the Nada Yoga sounds made were truly a deafening explosion. There was a lot of release of inhibitions. The room was filled with so much fun and laughter as each moved freely according to their own style and rhythm.

FB_IMG_1578242914319

Everyone finally settled into silence and calmed down with the ‘Power of Purity’ meditation. Mohanji Energy Transfer was another blessing as Brother Alex shared with the group that he saw Satya Sai Baba blessing everyone through the Acharyas. Both Mohanji’s and Satya Sai Baba’s presence were felt very much during the meditation. Whiffs of the fragrance of vibuthi intermittently filled the room as they walked around and watched the whole event.

Some of the attendees were totally spaced out by the end of the program and there was a glow on everyone’s face with smiles of happiness all around.

FB_IMG_1578242998171

Brother Alex also shared that Satya Sai Baba had in fact arranged for the program to take place at the centre. He shared many miracles that had taken place at the centre. Satya Sai Baba also spoke to me while I was entering the centre. Perhaps I should share it in a different story.

Mohanji Malaysia hopes to be able to hold more programs at this centre soon.

 

4th program on 12th Dec 2019:

An Acharya program in Chinese was conducted at the Mohanji Malaysia Centre at Kuala Lumpur. Initially, 10 people who missed the first program requested for this program. Eventually, only 5 people turned up. Without wanting to disappoint them, despite the time constraint, the program was scheduled for the last evening before I left for the Philippines.

The program started with the Shanti mantra. I welcomed the group with a gentle reminder that one must find time to connect with the inner self along the journey of spiritual growth.

An introduction to the program kept the participants in high anticipation of what was to follow. A few warm up yoga stretches were introduced which then led to Gapless Breathing followed by the highlight of the program, Conscious Dancing.

With divine songs playing towards the end of Conscious Dancing, participants melted and immersed into stillness and silence. All then sat in silence for 15 minutes and were then taken into a deeper silence with the ‘Power of Purity’ meditation.

Participants shared that they felt the grace of the masters in the whole program. During Gapless Breathing, all of them felt energy balls twirling in their palms and during Mohanji Energy Transfer, everyone had various experiences, perhaps too difficult to put in words.

One person shared, “The balls started twirling in the center of my palms and rolled around very fast. I felt I was having two twirling balls in my palms. It was so amazing! I cannot believe it happened but it was so real!”

Another said, “Fantastic!!! I have never had such a deep experience in my life like this.” He continued, “I am experiencing what is energy, what is vibration. Every cell in my whole body was vibrating. When my body was vibrating, suddenly I felt stormy energy touch my crown and I felt I went somewhere really far. I am so glad that I joined the program.”

One more person said “I saw a rainbow surrounding my head. It was so beautiful! And I felt like there was a magnet on my crown.”

At the end of the program, I shared my own experience of the Kailash pilgrimage. Participants went home filled with happiness and contentment. Indeed, Mohanji‘s “Presence without Presence” was felt very much during the whole program.

This marked the last Acharya program for me during my visit to my home country Malaysia and it was a splendid way to bid farewell to the year 2019.

Online Empowerment 2

By Mohanji Acharyas Elham and Farshad

29th December 2019

We conducted the second online group ‘Power of Purity’ meditation in Farsi. Again, 16 people participated and 4 of them were new to Mohanji’s teachings. We started with a devotional song and then gave a little explanation about the meditation. We guided everyone through the Brahmari Pranayama (breathing exercise) to calm the mind, followed by the POP in Farsi.

By connecting to Mohanji, attendees could receive Mohanji’s energy and blessings. At the end of the meditation, we all sent prayers and energy to the earth by chanting Lokah Samastah 21 times as Mohanji instructed.

We then had a long experience sharing and Q&A session. We talked about Mohanji, the Tradition, how the mind works, about its nature and practices to calm the mind. It was a long program as it took 2 hours and 45 minutes. Despite it being a late night in Iran, people stayed until the end of the session. The presence of Mohanji and all the masters were strongly felt. Two of the participants even felt Shaktipat on their third eye. Some people felt Mohanji’s and Babaji’s presence.

We’re so grateful to Mohanji Baba and the Guru Mandala. Always at the lotus feet of Mohanji.

A journey into your inner space

By Mohanji Acharya Rekha Murali

13th December 2019

Meera Gopalakrishnan warmly invited us into her home and hosted us for a program, ‘A Journey into your inner space’ in Chennai, India. There were 8 participants of which 6 of them were new. The entire program was done in the local language – Tamil!

Meera, being an ardent devotee of Kanchi Sankaracharya (popularly known as Periyava) of the Kanchipuram Shankara Mutt had invited friends who were also devotees of Periyava.

We started the program with an introduction to Mohanji and the Mohanji Foundation. This was followed by Aum Chanting which helped in settling the mixed energies.

Meera read a page from ‘The Power of Purity’ book with great bhaav which was summarised by the participants along with their viewpoints. The topic was human conditions!

Some stretches were done to loosen up the body before settling in for the ‘Power of Purity’ meditation in Tamil in Mohanji’s beautiful and powerful voice. Mohanji Energy Transfer was also done during the meditation. Emotions were released, visions and experiences felt as tears flowed freely during the meditation.

This is when the Masters – Mohanji and Kanchi Periyava revealed their presence in the room. Towards the end of the meditation, the gratitude song was played. I selected a very popular, devotional Tamil song on gratitude which is played after all homas, pujas and yagnas (sacred rituals that are done in India). The song is titled ‘Kurai ondrum Illai’ which roughly translates as ‘I am content with what I have, dear Krishna!’

Sankaracharya – Kanchi Periyava

After four lines of the song, the song on the mobile suddenly stopped and switched to another song in Tamil dedicated to Shankaracharya called ‘Vizhi kidaikkuma, abaya karam kidaikkuma.’ Meera and I looked at each other stunned.

The translation of this song is as follows:

“Will the Master see me? Will I be protected by him? Can I get protection at his feet?

One after the other when misfortunes strike, can I get to hear his voice saying not to fear?”

The song ended with ‘Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!‘ At the end of this song, there was not a single dry eye in the room. Some of us had never heard this song before. There was complete surrender at the feet of the Guru, irrespective of the Master. Everyone felt the presence of the Masters and the energy in the room was very high.

discussion

After this incredible meditation, sharing of experiences began. One participant shared that she normally would sense the feet of Periyava on her crown (head) but that day during the meditation, she just felt that she did not exist and that she had merged into Periyava. There was no separation.

Here are some of the other shares:

“Namaskaram, I had a new experience with Periyava, the ultimate power “Guru”.”

“I really enjoyed this meditation. I feel very happy about having done this meditation.”

“It is a good experience and a new one. Lovely day!”

“I got a lot of peace of mind coming here. Thank you!”

“This meditation was very pleasant. The mind was very peaceful. It was calming. I am feeling a lot of purity within.”

sharing

 

After the lovely experience sharing and discussion on the presence of the masters, we concluded the program with the ‘Guru Paduka Stotram’ penned by Adi Shankara!

We were served a delicious sweet and fruits as prasad by Meera. A ‘Power of Purity’ book was also gifted to Meera.

Everyone wanted to have another ‘Power of Purity’ (POP) meditation soon. All the participants left happily with a commitment to meet once every month at this venue for POP.

There was a request for Mai-Tri Method for an eight-year-old boy. This boy had behavioural problems and was extremely hyperactive. The Mother reached out for help as she was losing her patience with him. I spoke to the boy for a few minutes and he willingly and happily agreed for a session. As I started the process, he was fidgety and kept giggling. But within five minutes, the child calmed down and stayed absolutely still with eyes closed. After the session, I casually asked him how he felt and his spontaneous reply was “Super, Aunty!” Pointing to Mohanji’s picture, he said that Mohanji had come and asked him in Tamil (‘Nalla irukaya?’) how he was and said “It is time to leave now. See you. Bye-bye!” The child was so calm after the session and quietly sat down with a book. Later I was told that he was quiet for the rest of the day.

In his most humble way, Mohanji gave each one of us what we required that day and taught us to accept all masters as one. Thank You Mohanji! There is indeed no separation. You and I are one!

Awaken Love Within in Mohanji’s Consciousness

By Mohanji Acharyas Lakshmi Mohanananda and Maheshwari Mohanji

16 November 2019

A program which took place at Mohanji Randburg Centre, South Africa had been put together spontaneously in a very short time with the grace of Mohanji and the good nature of Aunty Julie from Randburg centre. Eventually, the program turned out to be beautiful.

The atmosphere at Randburg centre was very calming and Mohanji‘s presence was greatly felt. The afternoon began with MA Maheshwari’s reading “The right prayer” from ‘The Power of Purity’ book which set the tone for the afternoon and the people connected with it very well.

IMG-20191124-WA0010

This flowed into MA Lakshmi Mohanananda’s talk on Gratitude and Self-love. Mohanji truly works through the Acharyas to deliver what is right for each person. All the people who attended felt that they needed to hear those words and it had some specific significance to each of them. The discussion flowed in a beautiful direction as people asked questions and others shared their views and experiences. Every person felt comfortable to open up and speak up about their feelings.

Maheshwari then led us into the ‘Blossoms of Love’ meditation which further evoked the sense of self-love and gratitude. Mohanji Energy Transfer was delivered, followed by the “I Am” song. After this, the heart chakra of everyone opened up and everybody hugged each other. The room was filled with love and joy.

After a short break, individual Mai-tri was done, followed by gratitude to Mohanji whilst listening to the “Shree Mohanji” song. Since all those who attended had experienced Aarti before, we together concluded with Mohanji’s Aarti.

There was a child who also joined the program. Initially, he didn’t want to interact much, but during the discussions, he opened up, managed to sit for the full meditation and Mai-tri as well. After Mai-Tri was done, he gave Lakshmi the biggest hug ever.

Much love, salutations and prostrations to Mohanji. Thank you to Mohanji Randburg Centre for hosting this program.

One day in Mohanji’s Consciousness

By Mohanji Acharya Devadas AC

23rd November 2019

A beautiful Acharya program took place in Trivandrum, Kerala, India.

The program started on a sacred note with Adhanga Puja and Pada puja (two sacred rituals).

Our beloved Umesh Unni, Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga (HSTY) instructor was our special guest that day. Umesh gave a brief about HSTY and taught us some of the basic yoga techniques.

We performed the noon Aarti (sacred ritual of offering light to a master or a saint) to our Guru, after which we all gathered for a small satsang (friendly discourse).

20191123_114632.jpg

The ‘Power of Purity’ meditation was then conducted. Most of the participants felt the power of the meditation. A few of the participants were new.

Post lunch, Mai-Tri Method was done based on requests, followed by chanting of the Mohanji Gayatri mantra and bhajans. Mohanji‘s Presence without Presence was felt throughout the program.

The program concluded at 4 pm with prasad (food offered to the master) distribution to all the participants. After consuming such divine food offered to and blessed by Mohanji, everyone felt lighter from within and without.

Our sincere thanks to our beloved Mohanji for gracing us with this event and to dear Srijith and Bhavana for the opportunity given to us to conduct this program at their house.
