How to get rid of the feeling of inferiority, strengthen the will and take the initiative?
Focus on MANIPURA – the solar plexus.
Manipura represents who we are, the center of personal power, self-confidence and identity.
How do we know that our third chakra is out of balance?
The blockage of this chakra is expressed through fear, anxiety, selfishness, manipulation, feelings of inferiority, shame.
Physical indicators of disorders in this energy center are: stomach problems, liver, spleen and gallbladder diseases, digestive problems, back pain, nerve damage, diabetes, obesity, anorexia, bulimia and arthritis.We feel paralyzed and have no sense of self-worth. Prone to stress because there is no strength to deal with daily challenges.
If this chakra is in balance, it gives us the will of a spiritual soldier, we become fearless, strong, self-confident, able to face any situation. We are well connected to our higher self and know that we always have support from above and, thus, move forward boldly in pursuit of our goals.
This center is most exposed to external influences because it is in charge of receiving energy and information from the environment and processing them. As a result, this center is contaminated and blocked in most people because we are constantly exposed to environmental pressures that we do not have time to deal with properly. This especially applies to people who experienced traumas and unpleasant experiences in childhood which they have not coped with.This manifests as accumulated energy blockages that can cause stomach problems later.
As our level of consciousness grows, so does the energy of the solar plexus, and blockages are released and better flow occurs in this center.
When this center is in balance we shine from within like the sun and we spread that light around us. We feel the power from within and have no need to compare and compete with others. Instead, we discuss and cooperate with other people, which is a clear sign that we are confident in ourselves and our choices.
Some yogic positions that can help us release the flow of energy in our third chakra, boost our confidence and self-respect, increase our will power and improve the functioning of the digestive system, stomach, bile, liver, kidneys, pancreas, adrenal glands, small intestine, muscles are:
1. Adhomukha Svanasana – Downward Facing Dog
Benefits on physical level:It strengthens arms and legs, stretches hamstrings and shoulders, and energizes the body.
2. Ardhamatsyendrasana – Half Sage Matsyendra Posture

How to Spot Talent and Support it
As Indian people, we typically push our children to work towards engineering or medicine. How does one find the true interest of a child of say 13 years old, when they are about to enter high school?
A child’s preferences and talents are likely beyond engineering or medicine, and it is fine if they don’t get into one of those fields. There are so many other possible professions, such as:
These are of course just a few among many possibilities. Take time to understand what interests your children and encourage them to pursue their passions, so that they will be happy with what they do in life. Ultimately, that’s what we want;, our children’s happiness.

Srisailam is a holy abode of Lord Shiva, located in the dense Nallamala forest range in Andhrapradesh, India. The Lord at Srisailam is known as “Mallikarjuna” and is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas (locations scattered across India, frequented by pilgrims and associated with Lord Shiva). There Shiva’s consort, Parvati, is worshipped as “Bramarambal”. Srisailam is special as it radiates its powerful presence both as a Jyotirlinga and Shakthi Peeth (108 locations scattered across India, also frequented by pilgrims and associated with the divine feminine). As Mallikarjuna, he is the fragrant Lord adorned with white Jasmine and the Goddess, in the form of a bee (Brahmara), draws honey from the flower. The Goddess is showing us the path of “being like a bee” and soaking in the nectar of Shiva Consciousness.
Crystallising into Cosmic Consciousness – A peek into Akka Mahadevi’s Life and Works
The nectar that is Shiva has drawn many mystics to His holy abode. One such mystic is the great saint Akka Mahadevi. Akka Mahadevi showed great devotion to Lord Shiva even as a child. Having been initiated by her Guru, she could connect effortlessly and spontaneously to Lord Shiva as Chenna Mallikarjuna invoking and visualising him as Shiva Linga (a form of Shiva representative of an ‘egg’ or the primordial, first creation) ,even invoking his presence on her palm.
“Like a stream flooding the caked bed of a lake,
like rain pouring on a parched sapling,
like the pleasures of this world and the fruits of the next coming towards me together today.
Seeing the feet of my guru, I feel redeemed
“Look, I wear clothes for the sake of linga,
I wear jewels for the sake of linga,
I work for the sake of linga,
I see for the sake of linga,
my being within and without, exist for the linga,
I act without seeming to act.
One with my Chennamallikarjuna
what can I say about my being
just one among many?”
Legend has it that a Jain king who was enamoured of her beauty, wanted to marry her and pursued her relentlessly. Mahadevi, who was wedded to the consciousness of Shiva, did not accept the king’s proposal.
I am in love with the one
who knows no death, no evil, no form.
I am in love with the one
who knows no place, no space, no beginning, no end
who is fearless and lovely.
I am in love with the one
who knows no fears nor the snares of this world
the Boundless One who knows no bounds.
More and more I am in love
with my husband
known by the name of Chennamallikarjuna.”
“A gleaming smile; evenly placed pearly teeth;
tiny brown locks kissing the forehead; a skull garland; and a serpent on the neck.
He was not golden hued but white colored like a jasmine flower, smeared with white ashes all over his person – a form of supreme beauty and purity; a form of supreme dispassion.”
However, the king was persistent and to placate her parents, she agreed to marry him under two conditions. The first was that he would embrace the religion of Shiva and the second was that she would be in penance post their wedding and that she would not be disturbed until she came out of it herself.
The king agreed to both her conditions and they were married. The years rolled by. Mahadevi was deeply absorbed in her penance. The king could neither fathom her devotion nor her spiritual stature and was losing his patience. He approached her out of desire and disturbed her penance. Mahadevi, upset with his behaviour, chided him to direct his senses in search of Shiva and not waste a lifetime chasing a body that would soon decay. The king realised his folly and bowed in front of her, realising that her stature was not that of a mere mortal.
“Should there be one husband in this world
And another in the other world?
Should there be one husband for worldly purpose
And another for spiritual purpose?
My husband is none other than
All others are like puppets hidden in the sky.”
“Like the peacock that dances on a hill, like the swan that splashes around a lake, like the cuckoo that sings when the mango tree bursts into bloom, like the bee that enjoys only the fragrant flower, I will enjoy only my Lord Chennamallikarjuna.”
Mahadevi then left the kingdom in search of her Lord. She defied all social and man-made barriers in search of the true soulmate – Chenna Mallikarjuna, casting off even her clothes, allowing her natural long tresses to cover her, thus living in total abandonment. Initially people thought of her insane wherever she went and threw stones at her. She didn’t care and continued to progress towards her ultimate quest.
As she neared the Nallamala forest, she came to a place called Kalyan. Legend has it that the villagers there started to see good things happen once she arrived there. They started referring to her as “Akka” or elder sister and that’s how her name became Akka Mahadevi.
Another version states that Akka Mahadevi attended a parliament on religion and philosophy held by the saints of her time at the Anubhava Mantapa (Hall of Experience) and had discussions on philosophy and esoterics of spirituality. Greatly moved by her quest for the ultimate, she was conferred the title “Akka” – elder sister – by her contemporaries, thus acknowledging her spiritual stature.
Her love and longing for the lord only strengthened with time. She pined for her Lord Chenna Mallikarjuna. Chenna Mallikarjuna was her Guru, her lover, soulmate, husband. Finally, he became the one who filled her very breath. He was the one inside and on the outside. Her vachanas (a form of poetry with a specific metre) capture the myriad facets of Lord Shiva. She saw him as a creator of the bindings as well as the one breaking it, setting her free. She understood that Shiva was all the beings of the forest, the trees, and yet implored Chenna Mallikarjuna to reveal himself to her.
She pleaded with him to show the way out of the endless drama, like one would guide a little child holding its hand. She expresses in her vachana how the expansion happened as a play of numbers. Six passions were reduced to three and three became two and finally duality dissolved into one.
Mahadevi’s vachanas also suggest methods for spiritual evolution. She stresses on inner purity and magnanimity. Any practices without these would be futile. She questions how one cannot offer anything to Shiva, if one cannot melt one’s ego and be pure inside.
Through the vachanas, it is evident that she was a great yogi who had touched the subtle realms of stillness and she suggested a Turya language to describe this subtle experience that transcends expression. The fragrance of a jasmine flower is celestial and cannot be described in words. Along the same lines, Mallikarjuna – the Lord adorned by white jasmine – cannot be described more beautifully than in the poetic expressions of Mahadevi.
In one of the vachanas she asks, “Will the fragrance of sandalwood diminish if it is shredded to pieces? Similarly, how can one be any less if it is His consciousness that is filling up this mortal body?”
She also awakens us to the truth of existence: “Oh Lord, we have chosen and entered 84,00,000 wombs life after life but at this moment please have compassion to release me from the endless cycle.”
“On the vast, majestic expanse of the ocean
following the path of the stars,
the ship transports every kind of thing
to every island on the way.
If you can be in ecstatic communion
with my lord Chennamallikarjunayya
you’ll be transported back
to where you came from.”
One can understand the pure consciousness through the power of the consciousness itself. In another vachana, she says that she gained knowledge of Shiva through Shiva himself.
“Like treasure hidden in the ground,
like flavour in the fruit,
like gold in the rock and oil in the seed,
the Absolute is hidden in the heart.”
Book knowledge is no knowledge and has to be burnt to ashes. One has to wear the ashes of detachment and gain knowledge of the self. Merging into Shiva is the only way to become Him.
“Oh Lord! The hell of knowing you is really salvation.
Oh Lord! The liberation of not knowing you is really hell.
Oh Lord! The joy without your love is really miserable.
Oh Lord! The misery with your love is real joy.
Oh Lord Chennamallikarjuna!
I live on, As if the bond you tied me down with is no bond.”
Akka Mahadevi, in search of her Lord, wandered through the forests without a thought of food. In her words, she begged the trees for food and they became devotees of Shiva by donating their fruits to the linga within her!
She was willing to offer herself to the flame of the Shiva Consciousness burning in her. If the clouds thundered, she considered it as the play of the divine to bathe her. She has expressed her non-attachment and her spirit of total abandon in her vachanas.
“For appeasing hunger, the village fields,
For thirst the ponds and lakes
For sleeping the temple ruins
For company of the soul
There is Chenna Mallikarjuna”
In another beautiful vachana, she describes the futility of running away to find peace. She says that just as one can be free from noises by building a house in the marketplace, by being born in this world one has to find peace, shunning anger by accepting both praise and criticism.
“Having built a house on mountain top
Can you be scared of wild beasts?
Having built a house on seashore
Can you dread the waves and froth?
Having built a house in the marketplace
Can you fight shy of noise?
Listen, being born in this world
when praise and blame follow, shunning anger
one must keep one’s calm
Akka also states that not everyone can understand the greatness of noble ones.
“Would a fly darting nearby know the smell of flowers as the bee would know?
O lord Chennamallikarjuna only you would know the way of your devotees:
How would these mosquitoes on the buffalo hide?
I’ll be as the world, and behave as the world behaves.
Holding on to form I’ll move with it.
I use the exterior, forgetting the inner world.
Like burnt rope, I shall retain my appearance, I’ll be like the others but I’m not that.
I’ll be like lotus on water, Chennamallikarjuna.”
All the pain, the longing and separation became a play when she finally found her Lord within. The form dissolved into formlessness and Akka Mahadevi crystallised into cosmic consciousness.
“How can milk swallow ghee and remain separate?
Who can separate fire from the sun’s radiance?
Great One without bounds
seeing how you are hidden within me not separated
I opened my eyes.”
“When the body has taken your form
Who shall I serve?
When the mind has taken your form
Who shall I meditate upon?
When the life-breath has taken your form
Who shall I worship?
When awareness has become yourself
Who shall I know?
as you are everything
and all I know is you.”
One can feel the vibrations of the great saint when visiting the Akka Mahadevi caves. The ambience of the caves in the cloudy, drizzling weather was no different than being in Kailash. The trek up to the caves with the river on one side and the hills on the other was breath-taking.
Inside the cave, there is a naturally formed (swayambhu) linga. Deep inside the cave, in a small precipice, there are water droplets falling onto the linga 24/7/365, like perpetual abhishekam (ritual bathing intended as worship and resulting in purification). Nobody knows where the water originates! One has to crouch and make their way to the linga through a narrow pathway. One can then place their forehead on the linga and pray to the Lord. It is an activation of the higher energy to help us along our journey.
The great Sri Narasimha Saraswathi, considered to be an incarnation of Dattatreya, used to go there every day to perform prayers. It is also said that great siddhas went there every day to pay obeisance to the Lord.
The Srisailam trip was certainly a once in a lifetime experience! One that we will cherish forever and hopefully crystallise in our consciousness!

“Whatever comes in a very abundant and cheap way in life, please recognize it, for that carries a most valuable treasure behind it.”
Some years ago a young woman came for Vasi Healing® 1 sessions. She was a college student in a demanding degree program. Her plan and goal were to finish her degree in a shorter span of time than usually allowed and then apply to graduate school. Because of this she carried a lot of tension and stress each day. A naturally cheerful and kind person, the daily grind had gotten to the point where she felt anxious much of the time.
Whenever stress arose, her abdominal pain, usually a dull hum, would increase. So would her blood pressure. The diagnosis of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) was confirmed some years prior to our meeting. It is a hormonal disorder, thought to emerge from both genetic and environmental factors, and she could find no relief. Having worked successfully with this disorder as well as endometriosis in the past, I knew she would need to make some changes in her life.
We know that hormonal imbalances can be improved to some degree with a change to a healthier diet and lifestyle. Meeting her for the first few sessions I quickly realized that achieving a change in diet would probably not happen. Fresh vegetables were an alien species to her. As for her daily routine, it was absolutely filled with school, study, work, and more study. Getting her to carve out some time for physical exercise was going to be a challenge as well. The goal, of course, was to help her lower her stress level so that her body and mind would be cleaner, lighter and a more receptive platform for the Vasi Healing sessions. Since lifestyle and diet adjustments would not be accepted, I had to find a novel approach, one uniquely suited to this particular young woman.
Then I recalled something my teacher Palpandian had told me some years prior. We were not discussing healing or anything in particular when he began to explain the beauty of the obvious, the abundant, the common, and how these tiny moments are overlooked. Instead, we are always thinking about and reaching for the big things in life – the scarce or highest things we habitually think about while ignoring what is coming to us without effort throughout our days. The other component is how each thing we involve ourselves in has a particular attitude associated with it.
We go shopping and during that time we have a purchaser’s attitude. When we leave the store and return home we do some cleaning and then later some cooking. While cleaning we have a cleaner’s attitude and while cooking the attitude of a cook is needed and natural. Of course, we drop the attitude of purchaser, cleaner and cook as we leave each activity. We do not need to carry the attitude into the next activity. We can summon the attitude for any activity when necessary. But when we allow ourselves to constantly hang in the pursuit of a big or scarce thing, like the eventual goal of getting a law or doctor’s degree, the attitude doesn’t leave us for even a moment. Then something unnatural happens. The attitude crystallizes in us and becomes an identity.
As an identity, a false sense of self begins to live inside. It is as if a police detective carries her attitude as an identity so that when she leaves her job and returns home to her family, she lives with them only as a detective and not as a mature, loving mother and wife. She would investigate who left the refrigerator door open with a cold and calculating manner. Everything with her family would be, “Hey, who did this? Why did you do this?” A singular approach to life like this dries out our natural capacity to enjoy and respond to the varying buffet of life’s events. This is living in stress and after it accumulates over time we adjust to this unnatural response. Then it is called anxiety. The same had happened to this young lady who always felt so much stress about completing her degree quickly. She simply never dissociated from that identity and immersed herself in the other activities and roles that Life likes to offer us each day.
Those little activities, of driving around doing errands, putting away the groceries, sweeping the porch, are so common and obvious. Even more common and overlooked is the gap between activities that are sprinkled throughout our day. These moments demand nothing from us. Palpandian referred to all these as “cheap moments.” The value of seeing how we move from one small thing to another with a naturally corresponding attitude cannot be overstated. It is both appropriate and healthy to involve ourselves in life in this way. Obsessing about some big goal all the time isn’t necessary for its attainment. Instead, it drains us out of the present moment. It distracts from our life’s immediate now. Our deep desire and spirit for accomplishing what we wish toachieve, along with the obviously needed work are truly enough.
What does all this have to do with the young lady suffering from PCOS? In my attempts to help her lower her stress levels it became obvious that she was hanging on to the student identity. Because of this, she wandered through her days and nights carrying this unnecessary burden. When out to eat with your boyfriend, what good is it to worry about the schoolwork you will do tomorrow? Can’t we just enjoy the ease of the present moment, gazing at the menu of the best Italian restaurant in town as we choose the pasta dish we’d like to have? Dwelling in activities that are not present by thinking about them reinforces the false student identity, when in fact we are in that very moment only a restaurant patron. We can easily assume the attitude of the present activity of choosing between the ziti or linguini.
Working with her in this way whenever we met for Vasi Healing treatments assisted her in loosening her attitude of straining to achieve every day. The treatments themselves give a deep, rich and lasting sense of relaxation, so the combined approach was very effective. Within a few weeks of treatment, while giving Amritha Kalai (One of the three therapeutic methods of Vasi Healing) it was obvious to me that she had achieved health. I felt her return to the “fetal state” in a very palpable and real way. At that moment I knew she was healed.
Amritha Kalai2 is one of the primary three aspects of Vasi Healing and is known only by Palpandian’s lineage. The scope and efficacy of Amritha Kalai in healing are beyond ordinary logic and what is defined by physical laws. While I am not permitted to speak openly of its intricate nature, I can say that it holds the possibility of what can best be described as “miraculous healing.”
And the young lady? Six months after our two weeks of treatments she returned to her physician for scans and the ovaries were now completely free of all cysts, her blood pressure and hemoglobin A1C were all normal without any medications. This was three years ago. Since that time she graduated in the time frame she had wished for and moved on to her graduate degree program.
I encourage you to be aware of and appreciate the “cheap moments” in your life!

Biljana: This year Guru Purnima was on 13th July 2022. I celebrated it with our Mohanji family in the Mohanji Centre in Novi Sad. A group of dedicated volunteers from Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Macedonia and the Netherlands came earlier and gave Mohanji flowers or fruit as expressions of gratitude. We also bowed down, touching his feet, surrendering to his consciousness in deep love.
Mohanji Centre, Novi Sad
I realised the deeper meaning of touching a Master’s feet, especially daily, and not only when Mohanji comes. It is like offering prayers of surrender that are useful to get rid of ownership. We can practise the exact position, even mentally, and the same feeling at home on our own. How practical it is! You let go of your burdens and set the intention for your vision and ultimate life goal every day, and that way, while staying focused and keeping your ego under control, you energise the highest in you.
“This is the greatest gift I can get in all my previous lives and maybe the coming lives as well; touching and kissing the Lotus Feet of MOHANJI. MOHANJI is my Guru, Guardian, Guide and Goal. May Swami always permit me to be the servant of His servants, nothing more, nothing less.” – Dirk
Biljana: When we would give flowers, fruits, etc., to one of his assistants, he would look at these in such a detached way, with a smile and gratitude, but totally dispassionately. He had a subtle smile from time to time, and I saw he was working on something else in us simultaneously. He accepted gratitude. Seeing our hearts, he showed how it is not important to him what or how much we brought, but our grateful, respectful hearts full of love. Sincerity and openness in this gesture is the most precious gift. By giving him these symbolic gifts, our hearts melted. Yet, at the same time, we received something precious that we will carry beyond this lifetime until liberation and complete dissolution. He blessed all the fruits and, in the end, told us to distribute them to each other.
Then Mohanji gave a word to Dirk van de Wijngaard from the Netherlands. Dirk used to live with Sathya Sai Baba and is now Mohanji’s staunch devotee. In his deep love, he is in communion with Mohanji all the time. Dirk says, “Sai Baba and Mohanji are one and the same. Actually, Mohanji is my All-in-one Sadguru (true guru). If you pray to Krishna, Mohanji will appear as Krishna; if you pray to Radha, Mohanji appears as Radha, etc. In my meditation, I can see all in Him! Mohanji is not this body; He uses it so that you can experience His Light, His presence, His Guidance, His Divine Love, just as Krishna, Rama, Jesus, etc., took form. Mohanji can also come to love or test your devotion in the form of a bird, cat, dog, crazy man, beggar, weird person, etc. So, when you become a serious full-time devotee, you will feel Mohanji’s presence full time, and you will never, ever, be alone anymore!
“I am still with Sathya Sai Baba. He came now in the form of MOHANJI. Mohanji has all forms of all Gods and has no form. His real ashram is in the hearts of His children who live His teachings with pure and sincere selfless devotion.” – Dirk
On 9 July 2022, around 03.30 am, when Dirk was in deep meditation, Mohanji said telepathically, “Dirk, I want you to be with me on Guru Purnima”. Dirk asked, “For silent meditation, Swami? Mohanji replied, “Yes.”
On 12 July, Dirk arrived in Serbia for the first time in this life. He felt he had also been there in previous lives. In the early morning, as usual, Dirk got up at 02.30 am to take a bath. He did his prayers, recited his mantra, and made a beautiful garland of flowers for Mohanji on Guru Purnima. Then Mohanji, his staff and Dirk travelled by train to Belgrade and arrived there at 06.45.
He planned to be in complete silence for the whole day! But Mohanji laughingly interrupted his silence that day four times because Mohanji invited him to talk about his experiences at all the sessions. Dirk skillfully caught and held the audience’s attention several times in different cities. People were eager to hear about his experience with Sathya Sai Baba, Shirdi Sai Baba, Mohanji and the ring. Masters orchestrate events as per higher need, or dharmic purpose, i.e., the cosmic order, not based on personal desires. That is how his plan to spend this day in silence didn’t pan out. Surrender to that higher purpose was stronger.
Mohanji told a story of how, after pranapratishta (infusion of energy or life force into an object or icon) of Shirdi Sai Baba in the Mohanji Centre of Benevolence in Nonoti, Shirdi Sai Baba appeared in different forms. Once, he was a beggar. He came, and he sat down. He asked nothing. He spoke perfect English. One of our team members donated some clothes and a blanket to him. Later, as Mohanji was having a meal, he heard a voice say, “You are inside eating, while I am outside, hungry.” Mohanji looked outside and saw a dog. He told someone to feed the dog, and they fed him well. It was Baba in the form of a dog, and the team were able to give him food. Both vastradan (giving clothing with an attitude of gratitude for the opportunity to do so) and annadan (serving food with an attitude of gratitude for the opportunity to do so) were given.
As only an 8-year-old boy, Dirk lost his mother. She was raped and murdered. They lived in The Netherlands. Sorrow and longing for her were tearing him apart. He accumulated a lot of pain and heaviness in his heart. His father was a drunkard who scorned him. When he was 29 years old, his wife left him with his “best friend”. After she left him, Dirk had no interest in life and people anymore and started heavily drinking alcohol. One bottle of whisky/cognac and 24 half-litre bottles of beer per day!
On 25th June 1989, Dirk was a 33-year-old alcoholic when he had a very clear dream. In the dream, a man appeared. He had a full bush of hair like an African man, a beauty spot on his cheek, and was sitting on a huge lotus flower in an orange, lady’s night dress. In the dream, this man lovingly, in a motherly voice, told him, “Now the time has come to tell you about the Love of Life and the Life of Love, come to Me, and I will give you a mission.” Dirk thought he was going mad and went to his doctor the next day. Along with liver problems, he also told the doctor about the dream of this “Turkish man with big bunch of hair like an African man”. He asked, “Doctor, have I gone crazy?” The doctor said, “No, but you have a serious liver problem, and you also do not eat food anymore and are coughing blood, so you will live no longer than 6 to 9 months!” And then the doctor said, “Wait a moment, I’ll bring something. The doctor came back and showed him a book titled Sai Baba Avatar. On its cover was a photo of the man Dirk had dreamed of. He asked Dirk, “Is this the man you dreamed of?”
Cover of the book Sai Baba Avatar
Dirk said, “Yes, that’s him, that’s the Turkish man with African hair.” Dirk saw exactly the same man who had appeared in his dream! The doctor said, “No, he is not Turkish; he is from India. His name is Sathya Sai Baba. He is an avatar and lives in India at a place called Puttaparthi. Please go there. You have nothing to lose anymore. I cannot save you from death; please go.”
Dirk had never been on an aeroplane, but decided to visit India. He got a ticket with help and, with two bottles of whisky, he went to a foreign country for the first time in his life.
Dirk went to Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram in South India named Puttaparthi, but because he was an alcoholic, nobody was paying much attention to him. During his first darshan (vision of the divine, usually associated with “seeing” a deity or enlightened Master), seva dals (servants of the ashram) came to Dirk, and told him that Sai Baba had invited him for an interview. Dirk told them that he was not religious and that he was not a pure, devoted person like all others there. Dirk thanked them but said, “I can never be with such holy persons. I am an alcoholic who is dying, so better take someone else!”
The seva dals did not give up. They helped Dirk to get up and brought him gently to the interview room. Sai Baba sat down and asked Dirk, “How are you?” Dirk said, “Good.” Baba answered, “No, no, no.” He tapped Dirk on his chest three times and said, “Swami knows, mother pain, mother pain, mother pain.” Dirk burst into tears. They flowed in abundance, like a waterfall. Baba knew everything about him, he saw the agonising wound from Dirk’s childhood. Sai Baba materialised vibuthi (sacred ash) and told him to eat all of it.
Dirk returned to the shed where he stayed with 500 other men, lying on the ground with mosquito nets. He became very, very sick and got a high fever. Three holes appeared on his left foot, and the puss flowed slowly but constantly out of them. It lasted for about seven days. Then an American Sai devotee, who was also a doctor, came to Dirk and looked at the puss that was coming out of the three holes and asked, “May I ask you a question?” Dirk was very sick and said with a weak whispering voice, “Of course”, and the doctor continued, “Did you drink a lot of alcohol?” Dirk said, “Yes”. Then the doctor said, “Swami Sri Sathya Sai Baba is completely cleaning your liver!”
The next day Dirk went to darshan, feeling newborn, and got an interview again. He thanked Baba for His help and asked,” Swami, how to honour God?” Then Swami started laughing and said, “God is not in need of honouring at all; selfless service to the poor, helpless and needy is the only way to serve and please God.”
Dirk met some people and started to build his first orphanage in Kengeri in India. Afterwards, he asked Sai Baba people in the Netherlands to start helping Sai Baba by rendering selfless service to the poor, helpless and needy. He could NOT find a single Sai Baba devotee who wanted to help him. So, as Dirk promised Sai Baba, he started his own NGO and started talking in many places about selfless service to the poor, helpless and needy. After a few years, many villages (26) were helped because the people believed in Dirk, and 100% of all donations went to the projects in India and later Nepal (14 villages), orphanages, old-age care home shelters, many school buildings for free education of the “Harijans” (people considered in India to belong to low caste), hospitals, job training centres, etc.
About 25 years ago, Sai Baba granted Dirk another interview, and there were five politically connected ladies present as well. Immediately Dirk sat at Sai Baba’s Lotus Feet and kissed His feet nine times. Then one of the ladies came forward, and Swami said, “Don’t touch!” She mumbled, “But Swami, this boy is kissing Your feet so many times!” Then Swami very politely said, “Yes, he does, but he is doing it in Holland also, minimum twice a day!” (Dirk always kisses a photo of the Holy feet). Thus Sai tells them that he is omnipresent and knows everything, “Exactly as my MOHANJI is!”.
Then Swami told Dirk that He is very happy with his sincere devotion and hard work for the poor and needy, and Swami materialised a golden ring with four huge diamonds. He put it on Dirk’s right ring finger. When Dirk was out of the interview room, he met a diamond grader from America who said, “Wow, these 4 diamonds are of perfect quality. The value is at least two hundred thousand dollars; you are very lucky!” Dirk looked at the man and ran to his room. He slammed the door and started crying profusely, complaining to Baba’s picture, “Why did you give me this ring? I do not want gold; I do not want diamonds. You are seated in my heart; You are my mother and father; all I want is your love, nothing more, nothing less. I thought you were real, but you are fake! All I believed in was fake! Tomorrow, I’ll give you this ring back, and if you don’t accept it, I’ll commit suicide!” The whole night, Dirk cried, and he went the following morning for his “last” darshan.
Swami gazed silently into Dirk’s silently crying eyes and gave a hand signal that Dirk could come for another interview. Those days there were always 200,000 to 300,000 people, some of whom visited Baba every year for 20 yearsand never got an opportunity to touch His feet or get an interview! So, all Mohanji’s devotees, you all are so lucky, do not miss this one-in-all-your-lives opportunity. Sathya Sai Baba is now Mohanji, Shirdi Sai is now Mohanji, and Krishna is now Mohanji! Hundreds can tell you the omnipresence and omniscience of Mohanji.
Again the five ladies were also in the room. Immediately, Dirk gave the ring to Swami, kissed Sai Baba’s feet nine times, and then started to massage His feet. When Dirk got rid of the ring, he felt he could fly, so happy, so released, so FREE.
Swami then threw the ring amid the five ladies and did a silent telepathic talk with Dirk. “I know very well, my boy, why you came here. Boy, you always come only for Me. But as for those, they are interested in miracles or presents and treat me as if I am the Christmas man! They came for career, name, and fame. I act like a shopkeeper and ask them, ‘What do you want?’ If you want coffee, I will give you coffee. If you want me, I will give you myself.” Then Swami’s loving, motherly face turned into a fierce, strong father-like face, and He commanded, “Give back this ring!” The ladies handed it back to Him. Baba showed His omnipresence.
Mohanji does this often also, but many people do not catch the hints, even as they sit right in front of Him! Baba said, “Last night, my boy cried the whole night; my boy said he does not like gold; my boy said he does not want diamonds. He was determined that I was fake, and he didn’t even want to touch and kiss my feet nine times as he usually does every morning and evening. (Baba didn’t mention the suicide part of Dirk’s inner monologue). Then Swami brought the front of the ring to His third eye and gently blew on it three times. Then, instead of four diamonds, it had nine precious stones. Again, He slid it onto Dirk’s right finger. However, it was two sizes too big. Then Sai Baba said to the ladies, “Oh, look! The size of the ring is too big.” Then he gently gave one tap on the ring, and immediately the ring shrank to the perfect size for his finger. Again, Dirk wanted to take it off, but Swami said firmly, as an order, “This is for the protection of my boy.” Now Dirk saw the ring from a different perspective – it was telling him, “Through love for God, be the brightness that you are, complete, realised and fulfilled.” It is not eight plus one or seven plus two, but nine, fullness. Total oneness. After this transformation and explanation, Dirk melted. It all made more sense to him, and he accepted the ring with gratitude. Yet, he still didn’t know why he might need such protection.
The protection ring
Eight hearts surrounding create one star in the middle. The nine stones are connected with the planets, Sun and Moon. The ring has a special name – navaratna, a Sanskrit compound word meaning “nine gems”. Because the sun is the centre of the solar system, its gem is positioned in the heart of a navaratna. Nine is the number of gods; it is a holy number. The ring is for completeness. One of the stones symbolises the moon. The moon is also significant. That is why Shiva is shown with a moon on his head. The moon is connected with the mind, and prayers to Shiva can dissolve negative emotions. To get enlightenment, it is necessary to have a single-pointed focus. Other stones are for Mars, etc. All of the stones take on a benevolent significance when praying during the full Moon.
That night, in his meditation, Dirk started hearing young girls crying loudly. In the morning, he met a professor from Nepal and told him about the strange crying. The professor asked, “Have you never heard of trafficking?” Dirk said, “No”. The professor explained that young children from the age of five are kidnapped from poor villages in Nepal, drugged, taken thousands of kilometres from their homes, and sold for 300-400 euros into the brothels of Delhi and Mumbai. Dirk then understood why Swami had given him the “protection ring” the day before.
He went alone to Mumbai and Delhi. He started two rescue centres, one named “Rescue Foundation” in Mumbai and one named “STOP” in Delhi, with Professor Roma Debabratta and also started a rescue team. The underworld put a 100,000 US dollar bounty on Dirk’s head. His Indian friend was killed. Dirk felt protected by the ring many times. He acted as a tourist-paedophile, made friendships with the brothel keepers and rescued many young girls with his team. Till present, they have rescued about 4,000 children, and 200 pimps and traffickers were caught and sentenced to prison sentences of 15 to 20 years. Now the organisations are self-sustaining and getting sponsors from all over the world.
“This is Rama, the first girl I rescued from the brothels of Delhi. She was only 12 years old and was being raped daily by 20 ‘customers’ and had contracted HIV. After the rescue, she had many operations. Rama worked in our rescue team afterwards for about ten years. She was very dedicated to this mission, working with discipline and devotion. Having helped hundreds of other victims, she passed away two years ago. I feel she is still with me as my Guardian Angel. I feel this Angel always helps me be a good servant to God’s children, as she was.” – Dirk
Big buildings were realised, and when Dirk became popular and known on television, he heard the voice of Swami in his meditation, which gently politely said, “No name, no fame, be a star, not a film star.”
After almost 25 years, the day after this message, Dirk decided to quit the organisation in Holland. All the projects in India were self-sustaining, receiving funds from sponsors from all over the world.
Dirk said, “Whenever I would bring a rescued girl back home to her mother in Nepal, I always felt it was me – myself – returning to my mother. It made me intensely happy.”
In the early morning, 5 June 2022, just when Mohanji visited the Netherlands, Dirk had been wearing the ring for 25 years. Sathya Sai Baba and Shirdi Sai Baba appeared in his dream. They said, “Hey boy, get up and bring the protection ring to our son.” Dirk was not sure, “To Mohanji, Swami?” he asked. Sathya Sai looked surprised at Shirdi Sai, “Are we talking to an idiot? Yes, of course, MOHANJI, who else!?” Then Dirk knew it was not just a dream but a genuine communion, and he asked Devi Mohan for a top secret, private interview with Devi and Mohanji.
Dirk explained the order he got from Shirdi Sai and Sathya Sai and gave the ring to Mohanji. Mohanji just said, “Ok.” As Dirk always learned ‘no name, no fame’, he told his daughter Parvati, “Parvati, never, ever tell anyone that I gave away the ring!!!” Dirk said he 100% handed over “his” daughter to her real father, Mohanji!
“I always beg ‘my’ daughter Parvati, ‘Please never, ever, be a part-time devotee,’ because when you become a full-time devotee, Mohanji has to be full-time with you! And for sure, He grants permanent darshan in the ashram of your heart.”
Dirk: A few days later, Parvati travelled to Montenegro, and when people asked Swami Mohanji about the ring, He answered, “Oh, you can ask Parvati; Dirk gave it to me!” That is how our divine beloved Swami Mohanji is, no secrets for Him. Always transparent, just as He lives His teachings. To be an example, like Jesus. Let us understand who Swami Mohanji really is. Let us not wait till the time He will announce, “My Father and I are ONE.” I humbly beg all of you, “Please become full-timers, not part-timers.” Jesus had only twelve disciples, and Buddha only five.
Through your divine heart and practising Swami Mohanji’s teachings, you can walk with Him full time, just surrender your crazy-horse mind, which makes you a slave to temporary pleasures and brings you back to a fake life full of pain, while now again, Jesus (in the form of Mohanji) comes and asks you to come with Him. Actually, there is nothing else I long for in this world. I can only think, live and practise Mohanji’s teachings. Helping hands are better than praying lips! I cry every day knowing that Swami Mohanji loves me. If they want to give me one million paradises, I will refuse ALL, I only want to be with MOHANJI, and I NEVER EVER want to be ALONE anymore. MOHANJI IS MY UNIVERSE < MOHANJI IS MY WORLD < MOHANJI IS ALL I was LONGING FOR ACROSS ALL OF MY LIVES.
My Humble pranams (prostrations) at the Lotus Feet of MOHANJI, my Sadguru, Guardian, Guide and GOAL. May Swami Mohanji bless me with an Uninterrupted Flow of Divine Love towards His Lotus Feet and make me the lowest and humblest servant of His servants. Jai Sai Mohanji.
Biljana: I think Dirk realised that whether you give Mohanji $10 million or a flower, He would be the same – totally disinterested and detached. I can recollect when I attended Consciousness Kriya initiation, as a refresher, or volunteered as a photographer. Mohanji behaved the same way. The growth of the mission did not change Him that way. He has been showing the same detachment and dispassion. It is for His protection because when one is highly active in adding value to the world, increasing awareness, and helping elevate humankind to ‘kind-human’, there are forces which make an effort to keep people suffering and in illusion. They work through certain channels of negativity and would like to destroy Him. Masters know that, and they support Mohanji’s mission because that is the need of this time – to re-establish dharma (righteousness) and raise the vibration of the Earth. Mohanji does it in His way. He reminds people of their full potential, to be themselves. He later explained, “Turn pain into purpose. All successful people who have excelled in something had some pain in life.”
Dirk and Mohanji
While Mohanji was leaving the Guru Purnima celebrations, He told us to continue. Dirk proceeded to tell us more stories. One of them was about the importance of humility. I could feel how Mohanji was working through him. The rhythm and tone of his sentences, and messages were exactly like Mohanji’s, as delivered in His satsangs (gathering of spiritually oriented people with the aim of evolving into higher awareness). Dirk illustrated with anecdotes from his own life. Surprisingly, Dirk said that he had never listened to Mohanji before. The first time he listened to Mohanji was the previous month when He had a program in the Netherlands.
Do not be arrogant, self-important, or egoistic. Life will pull you down. Be humble instead. A lorry driver in India was very proud of his income of 15,000 rupees. He was looking down on rickshaw drivers who would earn only 50 rupees. It went on for a while.
One day, while passing by the rickshaw drivers and laughing at them, a bee suddenly entered his mouth and stung him. The piercing pain came as a shock, and he lost control of the lorry. It turned over, and took a lot of damage. He wanted repayment from the insurance company. He talked to an officer and asked for the money. “What happened?” asked the officer. “A bee came into my mouth and stung me.” “We don’t give insurance for that,” said the officer and asked him to pay for the damage he had caused. He had to pay 7,500 rupees twice over. That is how life brings events to humiliate you if you are arrogant or conceited.
The Master gives you what you need and deserve, not what you want. A baby cries when hungry, thirsty, tired or wants gentle attention. When the baby cries, who comes to attend to it? It is the mother or father. If you are in the market, other people would just say, “Oh, no, some baby is crying again.” Like that, when you are sad, desperate, or eager for his presence, to whom do you pray? Who responds? Your Master responds because you are connected with him through the love in your heart.
I remember Mohanji once said that other Masters do not feel responsible and will not come to help. Also, when you pray to all Masters, nobody is responsible. But when you pray to one Master, all Masters feel love. But instead of all Masters coming, like a mother or father who comes to attend to and console their baby, the Master comes to do whatever he can for you.
But you will not get whatever you want. Like a good parent, he knows what is good for you and what you need, so he gives you that – he gives you what you need and deserve.
In my striving to be one with Mohanji, this wish crept in and grew. I was longing for regular communication with him and to work together, under his direct guidance, as I used to do, 10-12 years ago. I already have responsibility in the mission as the head of several global teams and a member of a few more. Just by being connected with Mohanji, I can see what is needed and attend to it; I am inspired to start new initiatives, etc. But this desire was torturing me. I was thinking about it very often: how to get even closer to the fire. Just as I was thinking of him, instead of longing for merger, Maya (illusion) was planted in my mind, slithering like a snake. I didn’t tell anyone about it, and I wasn’t consciously aware of it.
While translating what Dirk van de Wijngaard was telling us, a huge sense of wonder and amazement filled me. He told us how he suddenly came to Novi Sad, although he didn’t plan it. He wanted to spend Guru Purnima with Mohanji, in his proximity, even just in the corner and just be in silence on that day. He said that while he was in deep meditation, he heard Mohanji inviting him, “Come here; I want you to be with me on Guru Purnima.” Dirk was wondering how he would manage to travel, since his finances did not allow for an airplane ticket from The Netherlands to Belgrade, plus accommodation. He told his group about it, and a friend offered, “I’ll pay your costs; you can go.” That is how all obstacles were removed, and Dirk arrived in Novi Sad, telling these stories to us, the live and eager audience.
After all the stories of his communion with Sathya Sai Baba, Shirdi Sai Baba and Mohanji, Mohanji turned to me and said, “See? We don’t talk via WhatsApp or some other thing. It is all telepathic communication.” That way, he gave me an answer to my longing. I should strive to communicate with him internally, in meditation, during Kriya practice, or simply in deep silence. That was a hit in the face and a big relief, as he is always with me. I don’t have to see him or message him through gadgets. As we are of one heart, we can communicate telepathically, and it can become better and clearer with time and as I listen to him within more and more. Such communication, “innernet”, is not bound by time, space, or even this body. I will be grateful for that forever.
Bilja and Mohanji
Dirk: But please remember ABC: Always Be Careful. Many mentally sick or selfish, egoistic people who say: “Mohanji speaks through me” are mostly mental patients or fakers who want to become interesting. They tell you nice stories you want to hear or will even ask for money, or they say they can give you Shaktipat (transmission of energy from the Master) or enlightenment for 10,000 dollars, or something equally ridiculous. (Laughing) Never believe them. Just stay single-pointedly focussed on our dear, beloved Power of Purity and Sincerity, Maha Avatar (all in one) Guru Brahma Mohanji, who only wants our love, expressed through discipline and sincere devotion.
You can achieve the highest through sincere and honest prayer and helping with selfless service to the poor, helpless and needy and helping the animals, flowers, trees, birds and fish. If you think of Swami Mohanji and your chest becomes warm, and tears come, then rest assured that Swami is giving darshan in the ashram of your heart.”
Please tell everyone to be single-pointedly focused on Swami Guru Brahma, Sadguru, Maha Avatar, Lord Dattatreya, Krishna, Rama, Sarada Devi, Radha, Parvati MOHANJI. MOHANJI is THE ONLY REAL Son in the Universe. MOHANJI’S divine love is always available for those who are in need of pure divine guidance. If you really love him, there is actually nothing else. Swami Mohanji’s smile is all I am longing for, nothing more, nothing less. Please let us be full-timers. Only then will you experience his Greatness, his Pureness, his dedication to being responsible for those who completely surrender to him. Let Swami never walk alone. Swami Mohanji, our Divine Mother and Father, sometimes waited 2,000 years to see you again. So, surrender 100% and live his teachings – then you will never, ever be alone anymore. Swami Mohanji will always care for you as a true Mother/Father does. Really, I pray that my life story will make you all full-timers who follow Swami Mohanji’s lotus feet unconditionally and never ask him where he brings us. Because if you become a full-time devotee, you are already home!
No need to go anywhere. You will get electrified by Swami Mohanji’s burning divine love. Such is my experience, do not think, love him. He has taken this form to meet you and tell you that you were lost for many lives in a temporary, fake world.
Dirk: Please, all of you, take Swami Mohanji’s divine hand and never let Him go anymore. Jai Sai Mohanji. I never want anything else. I only want the uninterrupted flow of divine love to Swami Mohanji’s lotus feet – nothing more, nothing less. So that I become the servant of servants of my everything, called “Mohanji”. Swami Mohanji is a Universal Atomic Bomb of Divine Love. We all should work hard to put His teachings into practice so that Swami is very happy with our full-time selfless service. When our love is unconditional, we activate this bomb. When He explodes because of our truthful, faithful, sincere, single-pointed, divine child-like, pure devotion, the whole Universe with all creatures will feel His divine love. I wish I could cut myself into 7.5 billion atom sized pieces to inject in each living creature the divine pure love of my EVERYTHING, who now came as MOHANJI.
Jai Sai Mohanji,
Dirk, servant of His servants, nothing more, nothing less.
Dirk, “Servant of His servants, nothing more, nothing less.”
|| JAI BRAHMARISHI MOHANJI ||
Written by Mina Obradovic
I know many people won’t believe the words in this article, but I will proceed with sharing it because I feel that it can inspire one or two people, and that’s sufficient for me.
For a long time, for years, I had a wish to know the answer to the question, “Who is Mohanji, beyond the physical body?” I asked Him to reveal Himself to me, to show me what His real form is, His real state.
I always believed Mohanji’s body is a joke, that He is playing with His physical body, that He’s not just that. By bringing a body, I have always believed that He’s playing with us, because this body seems very ordinary, and He is not that. One of the many times when I had asked to know His real form was in Rishikesh in 2017. I learnt that He was always trying to show me, but my emotions always came in huge waves, and He couldn’t do anything. If our cup is full, nobody can pour water into it.
I had experienced that He isn’t his body before, because I have seen Him inmany places at once, but I have not experienced it in as much detail as I experienced this time.
A few weeks ago, I visited Him during His private visit to Novi Sad. I always try to go to Him expectation-free. When I was sitting near Him on the floor, I asked Him, “Who are you, Mohanji?” He didn’t reply. He was on His phone, finishing His work. At one moment, He told me to touch His feet and see what I see in His body. I have seen before that His body parts are not ordinary. I know this through the eyes of Mai-Tri (https://mohanji.org/mai-tri-method/).
1. The Universe in Him
I touched His feet and the first thing I saw was that something was spinning. I looked closer and saw they were planets. I sharpened the focus more, and I saw the vastUniverse contained in His physical body, with all the galaxies and planets. My body was in Novi Sad, but my subtle body was suddenly teleported there.
I saw the Sun and other planets there. Everything was inside Him. The Earth was so small, like a dot inside His body. The Sun was also very small. All the planets and galaxies were available to me, like buttons that I can click on and teleport to whichever one I wish. I had many options. Within this zone, I could go anywhere. It was all in His body – planets of various shapes and colors.
If you read my blog series “Montenegro and Me” (https://minaobradovic.wixsite.com/understandingtruth/post/montenegro-and-me-part-1), you will know I have a special feeling for the Sun. I realized that I can rapidly move around the Universe, I had no physical body. It was as if Mohanji had organized a feast for me, one for which I’dbeen waiting for years.
I found the Sun and deeply wanted to know the inside of it. I understand that it is a rare opportunity to be able to travel like this. In normal terms of a karmic being, this is impossible. I set the intention to go to the Sun and I immediately found myself there. I was inside, everything around me was bright, but it didn’t burn my body. I didn’t feel any heat because I had no physical body. While my physical body was in Novi Sad, the subtle body couldn’t be burnt.
2. The Sun: The Inside
Inside the Sun, I saw people in human form sitting in a circle, and their bodies were golden. Everything was so bright. They also had no physical bodies – nobody did. There were about 30 of them and I understood that they all live there. Some of them were smiling, some were blessing, and some had their faces normal, focused, with eyes closed. In the center of that circle, there were beings in non-human form, dancing. They were smaller than humans and their arms were moving in rhythm. They looked peaceful and happy. They were like some small animals or helpers. While they were dancing, – I didn’t see,but rather felt, – movement on Earth in the same rhythm of their bodies, and assumed their dance was not just dance. It was work.
I began to understand the variety of the Universe. Mohanji gave me this experience to understand that small emotions like possessiveness, anger, and guilt are not worth it. They are so small compared to our real potential ,and we get stuck there.
It was like a puzzle for which I kept collecting hundreds of pieces, scattered around the Universe. What does this space look like, what is this planet, who are its beings, how do they look, how big is the Universe, in which all galaxies exist, etc. Piece afterby piece kept falling into my lap without much effort. To say Mohanji is something, isit’s useless, unlessif not experienced. I was given this to have that experience it alone. I kept digging.
I already started being familiar with the inside of the Sun, but I didn’t see any entrance. I wondered whether new beings also come through ansome entrance, or whether it’s always the same beings always. I saw that people live there. Some new people come too, provided their frequency matchesis matching that of the Sun. The frequency is like a ticket there.
Around the circle, I saw small fire circles, flying in the air. Some beings were playing on them, jumping from one to the other. I felt that they were also working, not exactly playing.
3. The Sun: Body and mMind Pull
The vision of the Sun began to fadestarted fading away. I felt Mohanji’s pull, almost telling me, “Don’t go too far.” I set the intention to stay in the Sun some more. I knew my time was limited. Mohanji never gives such experiences for long. He shuts the show down before you know it. I needed to be quick.
I tried to enter the Sun again. I managed for a short while, but then I felt greatso much of attachment to my physical body. It kept pulling me back. I tried, and again, I was pulled back. I felt like a feather pulled back by steel. Like a bird in a cage.
The Sun felt beautiful. I wanted to stay there, but I was being dragged back to my body. I asked Mohanji to cut the connection to my physical body. He tapped my back with His palm once. As He tapped, I felt a jump out of mythe body, a very intense one. I didn’t feel any pain, but when I started moving inas energy form, my physical body slightly moved left and right as if I was plugged ointo electricity.
I was there again. It worked. But then I felt pulled by the mind. I felt many thoughts in mythe mind, and my presence there was disturbed. It was like losing connection onin a television picture. Back and forth, I was struggling to stay in the Sun without the binding of body and mind binding.
Thoughts felt like heavy stones. I never experienced that they are so heavy. Even one thought was so disturbing in that state.
I had another request for Mohanji, but I wasn’t sure whether to articulate. I decided to be natural. I decided I wouldn’twon’t lose thethis opportunity. I asked Him to cut off the mind. He tapped my head, and I felt a jump to the Universe again, near the Sun. I went inside again, effortlessly. I was fully present now. No body. No mind. I saw more of the inside.
4. The Sun: More Segments
Initially, I thought that what I was shown was is the whole inside of the Sun,; this circle and those people and beings. Then I looked and saw that it’s was just a small portion. There is huge space next to it, around it, above and below it, and there are many more “segments”. They looked like separate rooms, divided by transparent walls. Even though the “walls” were transparent, you need permission to enter different zones. I tried entering some thatwhich I saw ahead of me. I moved, but Mohanji was holding me, as if I had a tail and He kept me from goingheld me not to go further. I tried more, but couldn’t gain access. Initially I didn’t realize it was Him who was holding me. I wondered why I could not gain access. Then I realized, in some zones, if you entergo, you can’t return back to the body. If I went, I would have landed in different places, and it could ruin this life completely.
Each segment of the Sun, each “room”, was a different zone, a different frequency. We all have a particular frequency to operate in on this Earth. If Mohanji allowed me to change it for long enough and enter some rooms, I would not have been able to enter this frequency again. I had to maintain my frequency, have a glimpse and come back. If He shifted my frequency so suddenly, I would be stuck.
5. Pulled Bback from the Sun
The vision became black and I found myself outside of the Sun. I realized I wasn’t inside anymore. I wondered if this was my mind working again, if it was my fault. I understood that He pulled me back because I could not stay there for long. I went back to the center of the Universe. I was free to go anywhere again.
6. Another Ggalaxy’s Sun
The desire to spend more time in the Sun didn’t get replaced with something else, so I internally repeated it, “I want to visit the Sun again.” I didn’t however specify in which galaxy, and I found myself in a purple-reddish planet, dim in color. I was wondering which planet was this. I realized it’s not a planet, nor the Sun from our galaxy, it’s was the Sun of another galaxy. It was much larger than our Sun and it looked very different, even from the inside. Inside, I didn’t see any people. I’m not sure if it’s because I didn’t have the permission, or because nobody lives there. I assume it’s the first one.
7. Other Galaxy Pplanets: Purple and Grey
I was back in the center of the Universe with all galaxies in front of me again. I had a variety of options again. I entered a galaxy which had a purple planet. I came closer and it felt very pleasant. I went to check if there were any are some beings there.
I saw them. They were in the form of humans, very tall, maybe 10 times that of human size. One was sitting on the ground, and his body was of a purple shade. He had some symbol on his forehead, also purple, made out of a diamond or a crystal. It was transparent. His head wasHe had some tightly enveloped in some cloth on his head and with a pleasant fragrance. Pleasant, but not too familiar to me. He was focused on something that he was doing with his hands, on the ground. From my earthly perspective, Iit looked like wood engraving, from my earthly perspective. One of his legs werewas bent, knee was near his face, and the other leg was bent, but resting on the side.
I feltwas feeling happy to see him. It felt like there are many more beings in the Universe whose frequency can be similar to ours. Even though there are planets of lower frequency too, I realized Mohanji only took me to only to positive planets.
When I finished checking the purple planet, I felt like discovering more. I was looking at where next to go next. I knew my time was limited. I quickly moved to anothersome other planet. It was right next to the purple one. It was grey and the beings who live there had no shape, no eyes, nothing. They looked like bubble-gums, changing shape while walking.
8. Back to Earth, Moving with the Whale
I wanted to dive deeper into this Sun, but I felt another pull from Mohanji not to go too far. I then came back to our galaxy and back to Earth. It took only a second to move away from that galaxy, locate ours and reach the Earth. I found myself flying above Earth. Gravitation had no value. I could literally go anywhere, visit anything. But one and only craving is always clear, to merge with Mohanji’s consciousness.
In some moments, I was afraid He would cut off thethis experience before I gotget thea chance to enjoy all of it. I felt like a kid in a candy shop. But, He didn’t stop it. He always fulfillsed all themy desires of my life.
I entered the ocean to find a body through which I couldcan experience expansion. For a few years, for me, the ocean feels very close to what Mohanji’s consciousness feels like. It’s unpredictable, so deep, to stay in it you have to be fearless, to dive deeper you need to be fearless, and it nourishes without expectation. I felt excitedment. I was looking for a suitable body in the water through which to experience the ocean. I was looking for thea body of a whale. I couldn’t find any. I looked, and a shark appeared in front of me. I entered the body of the shark and started experiencing the life of in the ocean.
I felt strong and confident. I kept swimming. I was so fast and my body was fit. The shark caught its preya pray and started eating the some animal. It felt uneasy to participate in that. I left the shark’s body to look for a whale. I was looking, and in the a distance, I saw one. I entered and started swimming. I was swimming and swimming, and it felt enormousso huge to be in such a huge body. The water was moving as I was moving. Such a huge amount of water was moving, because I was so huge.
I continued swimming. After a while, I wanted to jump out of the water and come back. I felt most of it, but not fully. Mind was creeping in. I continued swimming. I dived into the depths of the ocean. It was becoming colder. Darker and darker. I changed the course, returned back to the surface and jumped again to see the Sun. This time, the experience was much clearer.
The jump – I felt it totally, big body, large strength. Seeing the Sun – I felt it in my eyes and on my face. I felt as if I was saluting the Sun. Going back in – I felt it fully; too. from theThe heat of the Sun to and entering the cold water again, feeling its freshness all around me. Feeling my huge size. I felt it all.
Two attempts to jump out. One was not fully successful, and the other was successful. In between, diving deep in the ocean occurred. Diving deeper, must have changed something.
I felt that the way I entered the whale is the same way how other beings enter our body. Some beings who do not have a body enter the body of humans, and we call them entities or spirits. The body of the whale already had a soul, but I moved with it and experienced the body.
I continued swimming. As I was swimming, I saw a large barrier in front of me, something like some wide wooden object, a part of a ship perhaps. I realized that I couldn’t move anymore. I tried breaking it with my head, and I couldn’t. I kept trying. Then I realized and felt – thatbut I wasam not “Mina” there. I wasam big and strong now. I can break anything. I am bigger than the biggest ship. With this awareness, I hit it with my head again, and it broke into pieces. I continued swimming.
How was I not able to break it initially? My Mmind had dragged me back again to identifications. Believing deeply that I am this body, I am this form, I am this name. This is why we usually fail, because we don’t believe we are multidimensional. We think we are only this dimension, but we are many. Experiencing the big whale moved my limits and dissolved a portion of my identifications.
9. The Ending
Mohanji asked me if I ‘m was done. I couldn’t forget that feeling of expansion. I felt another pull from Mohanji to come back, so I set the intention to go back to my body. He tapped my back and I was back in the room, of in Novi Sad.
I finally saw, experienced, witnessed and understood who Mohanji is. He is the whole Universe and all its galaxies. It’s all inside His body. His body is a big joke, and for Him, this very life is a big joke for Him. When I saw that the whole Universe sits in Him, I wanted to check how much of this energy is used by Mai-Tri practitioners. I saw it’s such a small portion, and if Mai-Tri still gives huge results,. Ccan you imagine what is the rest of it? If one cup of the Atlantic Ocean had the power to heal 5000 people, wouldn’t you wonder what the huge rest of it can do? This is the point. When you are the source, you have no shortage of energy. There is no amount you can possibly give that can be a loss for you.
One of my big wishes was fulfilled. Mohanji never forgot what I asked for in Rishikesh. He played a fool like He always does, but giving me this experience five years later, proves His stature.
I was 100% sure that He’s not what He seems to be, the physical body. People could have explained to me, but experience is experience. I have touched Mohanji’s feet many times before, and I didn’t see anything. I only saw the body. To experience this, it also needs His decision to show us. is also needed
In the end, I thought – then about whether are all these emotions are worth it.? No. Ownership, emotion, possessiveness, me and mine, my house, my car, my dog, it’s not worth it. I was settling into the realization that there is a huge possibility ahead of us. Maybe I cannot go back to this state again by myself, but I can have the remembrance, and that helps.
In the beginning when I first went, I didn’t want to stop. No country could have given me this experience. No regular person either ralso. The feeling of not wanting it to stop happens when we are expanded. For it not to stop, we have to shift ourthe frequency. When we shift the frequency, but oncey one time, it remains’s already shifted. “You can’t sit in first class all the time and think you will be in 10th class. You’ve got to riseraise to the that level of the 10th class. Once you reach the 10th class, do you have the inclination to go to 1st class? Once you reach a certain frequency, you don’t want to come back.,”, says Mohanji.
I asked Mohanji why does He looks so ordinary. But I already knew the answer. Real masters never show themselves so easily, it’s us who have to discover. Even if they perform a miracle, we need to discover where it’s coming from. Which level of consciousness. If we want them, their state, we really need to have determination.
Also, imagine, Mohanji’s original frequency is silence. If He sits in silence, how would the show go? How would it work? Is it possible? People cannot connect if there is no response from the master, that’s why they take bodies in the first place. So, yes, Mohanji is playing the a fool, in an ordinary man’s body. That’s because He has to work with the frequencies here, of differing ent natures.
10. Possessiveness cChallenge
In order to understand this story even better, I will give you a small flashback to earlier days. For a long time, I struggled with possessiveness towards Mohanji and a few other people. It was an old pattern and my biggest challenge in this life. Over the years Mohanji told me multiple times that this has to be deleted completely, otherwise I will have no progress in life. I needed to settle the understanding that I cannot own anybody, into every cell of my system. A few months ago, Mohanji even told me that when I lose possessiveness, I will become powerful. Over the years it reducedkept reducing, but now was the moment to finish it for good.
The experience of a few weeks agofrom the day before yesterday could take place only after I put serious effort into removing possessiveness. In the Empowered series, Mohanji said, “You have to make steps, I’m ready to give the whole Universe to people, but rarely does somebody make serious steps.” I took it very seriously and I’ve done things that were very hard for me for the past few months, only because I knew it would remove possessiveness. Maybe it was not visible on the surface, but my only desire was to get rid of it, because I knew my connection to Mohanji is affected if such emotions stand between us. Through the experience of the Universe, He showed me who He is and what life without emotions looks like. How huge it is. How big our options are. Even the Sun was a small dot in His body. Let alone Earth. Just because we are used to some stinky old patterns, emotions, and we are afraid to step out of them, we stay there and we are stuck. In the meantime, we become stinky, too.
In Conclusion points
Mohanji is the Universe waiting for you to explore. But a seeker needs consistency in connection, with conviction, to enter. Mohanji is easily available, but what are people coming for? Usually entertaining patterns and emotions. If you come for Mohanji and display tremendous patience, this is what you can get. I waited for years and finally got it. Whether I articulated it verbally or not, my heart yearned. A real master always hears our desires, but we have to be consistent.
It was impossible for a unit to travel the entire Universe which has millions of frequencies. All frequencies are not suitable for us. And we cannot access what we want, we can only access what matches our frequency. For example, I probably only witnessed those frequencies which are suitable for me.
My relationship with Mohanji changed with this. I started witnessing Him, the Universe, instead of the unit – walking, talking and playing in the drama.
It was unbelievably effortless to move as Mohanji consciousness. Be it in the a body of a whale, monkey, donkey, bird. This is what expansion in consciousness means. In no time, I could be anywhere. I could enter a whale’s body and feel it, I could have entered a giraffe’s body. I could go to any place, any galaxy, so effortlessly.
With only one tap, He removed body and mind limits. So, it is all possible, everything is possible. Then why isn’t He cutting the mind? Because of karma. Karma needs a mind to perform. Karma needs mind. The cause of birth is karma. But for Mohanji to do it, how fast it was.
Some people will never see, and that’s okay. But if Mohanji is the only point of our connection, if all you need is Mohanji, this is what you become. We get the whole Universe is aton our plate. And the army of great masters stands by us, protects us, and provides us with everything we need to move.
I hope this inspired you to think beyond our regular mind-limited operating frequency. Let us together rise to larger possibilities. The gross will always pull us back because it’s gravitational, but the subtle is levitational. Gravitational is easy, levitational is harder. The gross will always be more interesting to minds, but the subtle is more important.
