“You are unlit camphor – the same material which is lit in a Guru is already sitting inside of you. All it takes is one spark.“ Mohanji
On the day of Mahasamadhi of beloved Shirdi Sai Baba, the day when a great soul expanded in the consciousness to be forever accessible to so many souls like us on spiritual path – giving tangible experiences, teaching us valuable lessons, giving unconditional support, love and blessings…, on this special day I chose to share with you a profound experience that I had three months ago.
For the first time in my life (this life), Shirdi Baba appeared right before me, deep within my inner space, looking straight into my eyes with indescribable intensity – his presence was incredibly powerful. His eyes were fixed on me like two powerful rays – I couldn’t blink, move or even breathe. Shirdi Baba’s powerful eyes spoke to me and into me, but the voice was coming out through Mohanji. “God is presence. Soul is presence. Guru is PRESENCE!“, he said with the intensity that I love with all my heart and remember beyond the limitations of a lifetime.
While all of this was happening, I was in a superbly deep, blissful, intensely soundless state of breathlessness and bliss, a state in which super consciousness takes over and none of the rules of the waking state of mind of 3D world apply. This state of intense inner absorption and pure beingness that simply happened to me, as if I got sucked into the depth of my being all of a sudden, is known to me under the name of Samadhi.
I was blessed to experience this state several times in this lifetime. It was not a result of me doing any specific spiritual practice, but sheer Grace.
However, I could never stay in it more than an hour or two. I felt shy to write about it exactly for this reason. “What is the point of bragging about something that came and left? This is just ego seeking attention and praise. If you attain a permanent state of bliss, then write about it“, my mind complained. So three months have passed since my Samadhi experience in Belgrade and I never wrote about it – until today.
The moment I saw one beautiful quote from Mohanji posted on Facebook, I knew it was time to write and write until all of this is expressed. This is the quote that inspired me:
“You are yourself. Your experience is unique to yourself. OWN THAT. Be proud of that. Start your journey from that point. You will evolve higher and higher. Information is in the air. When your antenna develops the capacity to decode information that you are eligible for, you will automatically receive it. This means, when you have profound spiritual experiences, during meditation or in the company of masters, do own them, nourish them, cherish them. They are your own. That is the point from where you will grow. The guru principle will make sure of that. So, no need to worry. Own your own experience and be proud to talk about it. Do not worry about others who might ridicule you.It does not matter even if the entire world may laugh at you and consider you as a dreamer. They are doing so, because your consciousness is unique to yourself and others cannot see what you see. Believe in yourself – Your SELF.“
So let us travel back in time to a day before the first ever Festival of Consciousness in Belgrade, Serbia on 24 July 2021, when a merry group of 20+ from our global Mohanji family (many of whom just flew in to Serbia for the Festival), gathered in a rented apartment in Belgrade to celebrate Guru Purnima with Mohanji. It was supposed to be a smaller group and someone mentioned that Mohanji may agree that we perform Paada Puja, the ancient way of expressing deep gratitude to one’s Guru. The rush in which all of it happened was unprecedented – none knew who was supposed to inform whom and who got invited in the end. I wish all the beautiful souls connected with Mohanji could have been there and hope this text will serve that purpose in a subtle way…
When I entered into the apartment with Mohanji and his core team, I was surprized to see how packed it was. Familiar smiles from around the globe – US, UK, India, Netherlands, Balkan region, they all surrounded me. There were also several other people who came to know Mohanji more recently. Paada Puja got included into this gathering because one of Mohanji’s close devotees, Mohanji Acharya Bhavani from USA, requested Mohanji through Subhashree if he could fulfill the dream that she had for years but never got the chance to experience it – that of performing Paada Puja for him. She heard from some of the devotees from India that Mohanji mainly doesn’t allow it, but she was hopeful.
Even though Mohanji actually agreed to it prior to reaching the venue, when he sat on his designated chair and Paada Puja preparations were being finalized, with flower petals, turmeric, rice, and other ingredients being placed near his feet, he suddenly changed the story and started ’shaking the tree.’
“I am not sure this Paada Puja should be done. I bet that most of you don’t even know what it signifies and why it is done! You just came here to do it because others are doing it. I’m not going to agree to it!“ His tone was shockingly strict all of a sudden and none dared to answer any of the direct questions that he was shooting out like arrows.
Since 2007, when I met Mohanji, till now, I had quite many opportunities to witness such intense energy and knew it was for a higher reason – he was creating more space in the inner ’vessel’ of our receptivity. I was remembering my Yoga Teacher Trainings back in 2007 and 2008 when I first heard about the very notion of ’Adhikara’ (eligibility) and Patrata (the inner vessel/container with which we receive Divine grace and higher knowledge).
All the Vedic teachings, including Yoga, rest upon what is called Adhikara – ascertaining the aptitude of the student, the very inclination to learn, regardless of what we think we already know. In other words, eligibility through humility.
There are other dimensions to it as well. For example, in order to run, we must first learn to walk. That is why in Yoga there are many preliminary practices: adopting the Sattvic (balanced) lifestyle, purifying the mind, learning how to withdraw from the senses and the outside world in order to dive into the inner world – all of this is part of Adhikara before one can actually come closer to experiencing the state of Yoga.
In this context, the second aspect that I mentioned earlier is of great importance – Patrata. If our inner container (patra) is full of unresolved emotions, concepts and prejudices, expectations, attachments, aversions, etc., there is less space for grace to enter. Patrata actually means the capacity to hold the grace, to hold that experience. Whenever a person of higher consciousness speaks and we are not able to grasp what he/she is saying, or when a Master from much higher vibratory planes is present and we are not able to see him/her, this is because our patra is full.
It is important to note that we are the ones who choose whether our patra is filled with unresolved emotions or empty. Blaming someone else is nonsensical. To keep our patra empty, the key aspect, the fundamental prerequisite is surrender. Surrender to the Divine, surrender to one’s Guru. Without surrender, there is no Patrata.
If we do have Patrata, when Divine grace arrives, when the sacred presence of the Master is experienced, we just need to mentally bow (symbolizing the notion of ego bowing down to the consciousness) and let the Grace envelope us. There is nothing else to be done – nothing to think, nothing to ask, nothing to expect. Simply to be in gratitude – and surrender.
At this very moment, when Mohanji was shooting out fierce questions, I felt a strong, overwhelming, heart-expanding and mind chatter-freezing energy. It was pulling me inward, through a mighty suction-like force, deep into a blissful inner absorption. A part of me was aware that some people, Bhavani especially, started crying when Mohanji said that we have no clue why we want to do this Paada Puja and that he won’t agree to it. But I already started blanking out, diving into complete silence, and then briefly resurfacing. Next thing I remember is that he said that he will consider having one person do it, but not all of us. This statement was followed by an awkward silence. This is where the amazing humility of our dear Subhashree from UK came out in all its beauty – she was supposed to be the only one to perform the Paada Puja, but she requested Mohanji if Bhavani could do it instead (I missed this part and came to know about it from Bhavani).
After that, the next memory I carry is that Mohanji finally agreed to it after Bhavani totally broke into tears, trying to verbalize while sobbing how much this Paada Puja meant to her, how long she dreamt about it, how much she prayed for it, with all her heart…. Bimal and Ulla next to her were crying as well. All of us felt the insane intensity of this moment. Many egos were cracked, many patras emptied through those tears… When the familiar blissful tune of Guru Paduka Stotram was played and Paada Puja finally started by Bhavani who was relieved from her torment, I let go of all the efforts to remain on the surface and surrendered to the inner suction. The last scene I remember before my eyelids dropped was the sweet face of dear Mario from Zagreb who was crying and still making the effort to take photos. And then I was gone. Something grand was happening and my mind was nowhere to be found to analyze any of it. The ‘I’ was absorbed within.
There was no feeling of horizontal/linear time and at some point, not sure when, a part of me made the effort to resurface and peek open my eyes to see whether all of the people present finished with Paada Puja, so that I could do it as well. The memory of my first ever Paada Puja back in 2011, after Mila was born (when we had a different kind of drama at the onset, but towards the end of it I unexpectedly went into a deep Samadhi state right after performing Paada Puja and placing my forehead on Mohanji’s big toe) suddenly appeared as the only thought in the ocean of silence.
The moment this memory came, it was followed by a desperate urge to make an even stronger effort to remain vigilant, to keep making the effort of resurfacing and opening my eyes regardless of the intensity of the inner pull – I simply could not miss this golden opportunity!
In that unprecedented inner struggle of mine, the sound of Mohanji’s voice came with the words “OK, over.“ To my dismay, I now fully opened the eyes to learn that Paada Puja was finished. Subhashree started removing the platter with flowers, turmeric and other puja items. I felt desperate, on the edge of breaking into tears. I pleaded to Mohanji: “Please, can I do it as well? I thought there were more people who wanted to do it. How come it is already over?“ He tested my faith a bit, mumbled something about me dragging my feet, and then finally agreed.
My heart was beating fast and my head was heavy from immense energy. I washed his delicate feet with utmost care amd placed the yellow and red powders and flower petals on them with utmost care. Then I just surrendered, placing my forehead on his big toe…
At that moment, I felt that a huge portal got opened above my head – portal to higher consciousness, portal to purest Grace. I just surrendered at its doorstep. There was no trace of a doubt – Guru’s feet truly are the doorstep to the highest realms of consciousness. They are tangible, they are real and they are precious, making the impossible actually possible, making the unreachable actually reachable to us – provided that our Patrata is formidable.
With heart filled with love, I sat back on my pillow on the ground and could finally let go and surrender to the suction force, letting the mighty inner river carry me wherever it wants. This is when Mohanji conducted one of the most beautiful Satsangs ever. I am so grateful to Bhavani that she recorded it, cause I don’t remember almost any of it, just the part about the presence.
The words are so beautiful, that I decided to transcribe some parts of the Satsang, but definitely recommend you to watch it in its entirety and feel the energy, feel the Grace. This was mind blowing – exactly like 11 years ago, on the same blessed day of Guru Purnima, Shirdi Baba spoke through Mohanji with intensity, love, clarity and depth that is beyond words:
“What is a Guru? What are you celebrating? Without knowing clearly, it is not a celebration, it’s a mechanical action. What do mechanical actions give you? No result. You just had an activity, but no transformation. Many people connect to a Guru without having a clue why they are connecting.
Some of you just did Aarti. You burned camphor. All of you have camphor inside you. Guru is a lit camphor. What happens when unlit camphor comes closer to a lit camphor? It catches fire. Like that, everyone is a Guru material – nobody is lesser and nobody is more.
Guru is a lit camphor. And then, when you come close, you should also get lit.
But what is preventing that lighting? Either you are not close enough to light the fire, or there is something in between which prevents that fire to catch. Many times, the second is the cause. What comes in between? Patterns. Our habitual patterns. Doubts. Usual anxieties, fears, insecurities connected to patterns. Then you fail to see the lit camphor. You just see the person, the man, the human being, which completely eclipses the state he is in.
Now a different question – what is a Guru? Material which is your aspiration. Which aspiration? To be a lit camphor. To be enlightened. To be complete. To be fulfilled. To be expansion, not limitation. That’s the Guru.
But if you don’t achieve that by connecting to a Guru, what are you doing? You are doing nothing. Do you think practices will get you there? No way. Practices are a discipline. Practices are for allignment. A disciplined action for the sake of allignment. That’s of course good, because without a discipline you cannot progress. That’s for sure. But, a mechanical activity never takes you there.
Another thing – somebody else is following, so I am also following. Do you think that will work? Then that somebody leaves and you also leave. If you are not clear, any time you can leave. And what are you leaving? The opportunity to get lit. […]
It takes time to become ’dry wood’ that catches fire. It requires a lot of sunshine. It is painful. All the emotions and all the things which brought you to Earth, repeatedly, lifetime after lifetime, should become completely dry.
It’s not a boring thing. You experience extraordinary freedom, where you need nothing from Earth. Otherwise, all positions are binding, all posessions are binding, all relations are binding. Everything is binding. So how do you come out of this? That’s where you look at a person who has already come out of it. As an aspiration.
But please understand. You are unlit camphor – the same material which is lit in a Guru is already sitting inside you. All it takes is one spark. It doesn’t take much effort – when you bring camphor to the fire, it just catches fire. But this camphor should reach the fire in order to catch the fire.
Usually we don’t allow it. By the time it comes closer – oh, old habits, old patterns, they pull you back. What pulls you back? Habits. Patterns. Fears. Confusions. Phobias. Doubts. They take you back. They keep bringing you back. And then, what do you get? Another lifetime of same patterns, same thing repeated, over and over again.
So Guru Purnima is the day when aspirations can have actualization. What is the aspiration? To be free. Simple. Free from what? This binding cycle of birth and death connected to patterns that bring you back.
Patterns bring desires. Patterns bring inclinations. Tendencies, insecurities – everything is brought by those patterns. And patterns are repeated actions or experiences which have percolated into your system – you carry this through your death, into the next body. Same software goes into your next body. And that software functions as a human being. That’s what we call a human being.
Ownership is a big trap. You can’t even own your body. There is nothing you can own. Everything is a trap. Once you see that, all your habits, positions, possessions, notions, concepts, everything you get to see from above, from the state of detachment. Then you see your path.
Every Guru’s aspiration is to make others the same. I can only share what I am to you. I cannot share something else. So, when you go to many doors and knock, but don’t enter, nothing happens. Knocking is happening, activity is happening, but nowhere you are entering! Until you have entered, you don’t get food. Only if you go inside and sit down at the table will you get food.
Today is Gurupurnima, I am not mincing words.
So a Guru, a Master is a lit camphor. And aspiration of every unlit camphor is to become lit. That is why I always say to take time to select your Master. Don’t go to anyone thinking it’s a lit camphor. Maybe there is nothing. Maybe it’s just a flash of a box, unlit camphor box. But because there’s a flash, we get attracted.
By nature we get attracted to light. Children get attracted to light. We are the same. But there are false lights also. Flashes. See, Moon has no light without Sun. But Moon is not Sun. I hope you understood this. […]
If you have clarity, you can get lit. Lit camphors sometimes do not seem like anything. You have to come closer to see they are lit. And to understand, to recognize that, you have to spend time.
That’s why in Prashno Upanishad, when disciples approached the Master with a question ’Can you show me God?’, the Master said: “You stay with me for a year. And if you like me and I like you, we will work to find the God together.“
Consistency. Consistency is very, very, very, very important! If there is no consistency, there is no transformation. And sometimes transformation comes much later, like a bamboo shoot. Bamboo, when it’s planted, it takes about 5 years to grow a couple of inches. And then it grows rapidly, all of a sudden! It’s not like it grows a bit more every year. Sometimes you don’t see growth. But something is happening inside. So what you need is consistency.
Now, what comes on the other side? Doubts. Doubts come. What can you use to overcome doubts? Conviction in yourself. Remember. In yourself, not in the Master, not in anything outside of you.
The outside world is available to you only once you are awake. So, whatever is outside of you is definitely not your priority. You truly are what you are inside, not outside. But we pitch all our life on things outside. And the whole life we are deluded. And we pitch an expectation based on comparisons. That’s the greatest stupidity! You cannot be like anybody else. You can only be you. Absolutely you. With all your positives and your negatives. Everything is you.
So on Gurupurnima you need to aspire to be a Guru. And the material is already inside. Nobody can take it away. Nobody can take the camphor away from your heart centre. It is there. It is inbuilt. All it takes is a spark. For that spark to happen, you need to have conviction, consistency, connection: C C C! […]
It is important that doubt should not enter. Evil means anything that is heavy. Anything which detaches you from the truth is evil. Not that evil as evil exists. Don’t look at it as a ghost or something. 😊 Anything that detaches you from the truth is not good for you. Anything that connects you to the truth is good for you. That’s the God aspect.
So both exist – the dark side exists and the light exists. Light has more power because light just needs to be present for darkness to disappear.“
At this point of the Satsang, already sucked in for a while, enjoying the bliss of my inner space and Grace that overflowed as purest love in my heart, all of a sudden the radiant face of Shirdi Sai Baba appeared – so clear, so intense. Or rather, his face was revealed to me because the presence was there all along.
He was looking straight into my eyes! Two eyes, like two transcendental rays of intense presence. His eyes were piercing. There was no “I“ to hold back – my awareness was expanded in all directions, so blissful, so empty, so light…
Baba’s eyes became more expressive as he started speaking to me telepathically, but at the same time those words were given sound somewhere above (or around) – through Mohanji’s voice. This was such a special experience! Baba was looking at me, speaking to me, but far above, on the surface, Mohanji was uttering those same words through his mouth:
“God is presence!
Sun is presence. Soul is presence.
Understand – Guru is PRESENCE!
Guru does nothing. Don’t think that Guru does something for you. He does nothing, he is so lazy 😊. Guru’s presence lights you up. This is what happens.
Sun is not doing anything for you, is it? But Sun’s presence makes the Earth function. Electricity does nothing for you. But when the electricity comes, lights come. You understand? God is same. God is not doing anything in the particular for the Universe. God’s presence makes the Universe alive. You see? Soul’s presence makes this body alive. Guru’s presence makes your purpose alive.
So don’t think that Guru is doing something for you. Never have that misconception. Then you can actually delete a lot of expectation. He doesn’t do your laundry – your karmic laundry. He has his own laundry to clean. Your karmic laundry is your problem.
Guru brings sufficient light so that you know that you have karmic laundry. The light tells you: “Hey, there is a lot of clothes to wash.“ Otherwise you may not know.
So don’t think that God is really interested in you, that Guru is interested in you; that your soul is interested in you; that Sun is interested in you. Don’t think like that. Who is interested in you? – YOU. Other people may be interested in you because you are paying their bills. Otherwise they may not be interested in you. 😊 Cut off all the misconceptions. That is why I’m telling you this. Cut everything off, all these fogs. Then only do you see the truth.
My job is to shake you up. Your job is to stabilize. So my job is not to stabilize you – my job is to shake you up. And in this shake up, you should stabilize. Then nobody can shake you. Eventually, you become unshakeable.
Maybe somebody can stir you, but not shake you. 😊
The moment you realize God is presence, you will feel God. The moment you realize soul is the presence, you will start experiencing and enjoying life. Because when the soul goes, life doesn’t exist.
You will have no fears, no worries, no anxieties. You will experience life as it comes. You’ll be happy with it. “Hey, look here, I am alive today. What comes my way is fun.“
Whether it is positive or negative, there is no value here. Just experience. And each experience, it becomes a heavy memory only if we resist. If it just becomes a memory, that is good. Because that’s what we are here for.
The whole experience we call life are just memories. They don’t stay, right? Why the bad memories are staying? Because you are revisiting them. No memories will be there for a long time. Only those memories which you revisit, or manipulate, using your brilliant ideas. 😊 […]
Behind most relationships is insecurity. Be very clear. We are not with them because we love them.
Nobody sacrifices anything in this world. There is always an expectation.
Sacrifice is a very noble word – where you are happy that something goes out of you, or goes away from you. You are happy. How many times this happens? – think.
A true Master makes others Masters. Not followers. Not disciples. I want to see that you are all lit candles. Lit camphor. The world will be brighter. That is why we have a “Festival of Consciousness.“
I am not interested in head counts. When I die, what will I do with the head counts – have a satisfaction that I had many head counts? But if many of you have found your truth, this makes me happy. Because I could share what I have.
I don’t know what I have. Let me be very honest. I am not claiming that I am enlightened or that I am a lit camphor. I am sharing something that I understood. That’s all I can share. I can only share what I have. If I did not understand, I would not tell you this. This is important.
Did I shake you up a little bit? :-)“
(end of transcription)
I really wanted to take the time to transcribe this, because these words – they are so powerful, so filled with depth, love, light, truth. They deserve to be read and re-read many times…
It took me a while to come out of this state. I didn’t want to. Nobody would. I felt that somebody tried to give me something (possibly prasad, not sure) and I was not able to open my eyes. Then our dear Preeti Duggal came. Sensing that I am still in the bliss of being in the inner presence of Baba, she just placed the cloth that she brought from Shirdi, the sacred cloth that was kept on Baba’s murti in Shirdi.
She placed it on my heart and kissed me. I was so sensitive and there was just so much of beauty and love in that experience. Emotions built up and I broke into tears, trying not to be too loud, but there was nowhere to hide. I saw Baba, heard him speak through Mohanji and now I could physically FEEL him on my heart through this cloth. I could feel his scent, feel the warmth of his love through all my senses, inner and outer. It was such an overwhelming experience. Tears were just a minor expression of how deeply touched and overwhelmed I was…. There is no words to describe what Baba gave me in my past life and now – how great is his love…
After all of this, the answer to my mind’s silly commentary is:
This blog is not about me being special. It is nothing but a testimony to the greatness of a blessing of having a living Master in one’s life. The blessing of having the presence of the one who is so empty that all other Masters (in this case Shirdi Baba) work through him, so surrendered that the power of the entire Universe pours in through him when/if needed. It is also a reminder to me, at times when I lose my humility and take Mohanji for granted, a reminder whom I was blessed to have in my life…
Mahavatar Babaji (whose recent blessing through Mohanji will be described in Part 2 of this blog) and Shirdi Baba are two great Masters, two amazing Avatars who have revealed themselves to me more than once through a direct experience.
But ever since I have my own Guru, a living Master in-charge of mirroring my highest aspiration back to me, in-charge of chiselling my ego until it is not only cracked, but fully broken, so that Divine can express through me in the greatest of glory – I now understand one great truth. I understand that all Masters respect the sacred Guru-Disciple relationship and will not appear in a separate manner. Everything is funnelled through the Guru, the living representative of Guru Tattva.
Indeed, it’s been a while since I have noticed that my greatest experiences of Grace always manifest through Mohanji, in one way or the other. They appear through him. Everything is funnelled through him. This focus is the laser beam of Grace. My living Guru is all the Gurus.
Finally, I have learned this crucial lesson from Mohanji: all we need to do is stay attuned to the consciousness of the Master at all times. Whether in the body or not, he will keep us from the harm’s way and take care of all that is needed for our own merging with the Ocean, in its divinely given time.
Another important lesson is: many people come to a Master expecting or seeking enlightenment. That is still a personal agenda. Only those whose devotion is so pure and great, who fall in love in giving and serving so much that they lose all personal agendas, only they can reach the ultimate goal.Being fully empty of all agendas is the key.
While writing this text I stumbled upon my old blog about the Gurupurnima celebration that took place exactly 11 years ago. I totally forgot about it and was deeply touched when I realized that Shirdi Baba gave us a powerful experience through Mohanji on that day as well!
In the commentary to that blog, I verbalized what Mohanji explained to me that day – how Masters work through him. This is so relevant in the context of this Gurupurnima 2021 experience. I would like to share it with you:
“When all identities get nullified (this can happen when individual karmic push is limited or non-existent), when the individual is operating on a dharmic mode, higher Masters perform through that body, mind or intellect, which is not contaminated by karma. When we say “Shirdi Sai worked through Mohanji”, it means the consciousness which has the characteristic of Shirdi Sai, expressed through the physical frame called Mohanji. This can happen through anyone. This is not particularly reserved for Mohanji alone. But, extreme nullification, silence of mind, and surrender should happen.
We do not permit such things to happen because we are ruled by ego and we keep doubting. We lack faith. Total faith and purity are the main pillars on which spirituality gets built.
Spiritual practices of the previous birth do help. Spirituality never loses momentum, as it happens through lifetimes. The continuity is never hindered. So, the purity level of this life has its roots in the past lives. Therefore, in a way, ‘Mohanji’ is made over life times. You are made over lifetimes too. You can also reach the consciousness that he operates in and grow beyond that also. Practice purity and selflessness in thought, word and action. Operate with total faith and purity. That’s the best of sadhanas.“
I realized how this unexpected blessing in Belgrade closed a magical 11-year-old circle of Grace, because on that day, on Gurupurnima 2010, Baba gave me a beautiful, heart-melting experience through Mohanji.
It happened in our living room in Muscat, which was our meditation and Satsang hall as well. It was interesting to note that from all the people who have gathered there, 11 years later, none but me remained on this path. And from a small group of people meeting in Muscat every weekend, we have now grown into a global family – simply mind-blowing..
The physical, most loving experience with Baba through Mohanji started with the Shaktipat that I received from him after Shirdi Sai Aarti that we performed with lots of love:
“And what a Shaktipat I received from him at that moment! It was so different, with the most beautiful Fatherly love… The heat of his palm filled me up completely. His palm was connecting between my Agnya and Sahasrara, reaching both the chakras!!! – it was so big, i.e. much larger than the normal size of his palm, which I am familiar with. And my head fitted into that warm palm so comfortably, so perfectly – there was a sensation of being completely embraced and protected by the Father. The intensity of Love I felt was indescribable. I knew instantly that it was Shirdi Sai!!!… After the Shaktipat, I hugged him/Mohanji and rested my head on his lap in full surrender, as he patted my Anahata from the back – it was the most beautiful, warm, melting, Divine sensation…“
I would like to end this blog with a summary of a beautiful conversation I had with dear Bhavani. She felt deep inside that the powerful presence she felt that day was that of Shirdi Sai. She was aware of my experience, but deep inside craved for a confirmation.
Upon reaching USA, right after Guru Purnima and Festival of Consciousness in Belgrade, Bhavani went to a Shirdi Sai temple in New York where she usually goes. She said that they always play Baba’s song there and no other song.
However, when Bhavani went to this temple, right after this experience in Serbia, she was amazed to hear the same Guru Paduka Stotram that was being played in Belgrade…
Bhavani said: “As soon as I heard it, I recognized that he was telling me that it was HIM who was present in Mohanji’s body. He was making me aware of that. He was there from the beginning, that’s why everybody, including myself, lost the mind. That’s why you were in a deep state and everyone was crying. It was his presence. I did not share this with anybody till now.“
Om Shri Sainathaya Namah.
Jai Mohanji, Hari Om.
With a hope that, through these words, the Presence of Guru Tattva reached you and touched you in the ways that are transformative for you,
With deepest love and gratitude,
