Narada

Q: Could you please explain the guru principle to us?

THE STORY OF NARADA
A: There was a great sage called Narada in the Hindu mythology. He worshipped the maha Vishnu, the maintainer. He went to maha Vishnu and asked, “I am praying to you since time began. Why am I not achieving the highest grace? What is the blocking factor? I am not able to achieve the perpetual bliss state where I am always happy, blissful for no reasons. Why isn’t it happening?” Maha Vishnu said, “That is very simple. You don’t have a guru, that’s why.” Then Narada said, “Oh, if that’s so, then please guide me to find my guru.” Maha Vishnu said, “Tomorrow early morning, during Brahma Muhurta, the subtlest time between 3am and 6am, the softest, the subtlest possible time, you walk on the river Ganga, you’ll find your guru.” So Narada went to the river and started walking. He walked and walked and there was nobody. He continued walking. After a long time, there was one boatman in a boat to help people cross the river. Narada was disappointed. He thought that maha Vishnu made fun of him. So he went to maha Vishnu and asked him, “Why did you make fun of me? I couldn’t find a guru, I walked all the way, miles and miles, but there was no one. Just a boat and a boatman.” Maha Vishnu became very angry. He said, “You could not find your guru. And you discriminated. So now I curse that you will take one thousand births and only after that you will find your guru.” He was devastated. He said there had been a mistake. Because maha Vishnu said he should have taken the first man and that was the boatman. But what will a boatman teach? He thought, how can a great sage like him take a boatman as his guru? But maha Vishnu was angry because he had not fulfilled the instruction completely. So Narada went to his father Brahma and said, “This has happened and I’m very, very devastated, what should I do?” Brahma had a solution, he said, “Go back to maha Vishnu, and ask him to write the script of the thousand lives, the horoscope what you would do in the thousand lives.” Narada went to maha Vishnu and asked him, “Would you be kind enough to find out my destiny for the next thousand lives?” So maha Vishnu said, “That’s not a problem.” He is god, so he wrote the whole thousand lives’ horoscope and gave it to Narada. He took it to Brahma, and Brahma said, “Ok, lie down on the floor. Spread it. Roll on it from one side to the other.” He rolled and maha Vishnu said, “Ok, I relieve you from this problem, now go back and walk on the banks of Ganga to find your guru.’’ So all 3 were happy. Narada went for a walk on the banks of Ganga again. And again he found only the same boatman. But he already learned his lesson so he didn’t want to take a risk. He went to the boatman, and requested him to accept him as his disciple. Narada then realised this was Lord Shiva.
So, Narada’s problem was a concept in his mind, ”A guru should look like this”, etc. Nobody can attain any guru as big as Lord Shiva. He is the yogi god, or the highest of yogis. All the yogis aspire to be like him. And Shiva is not exactly an entity (though in this story it’s an entity) but Shiva is a state. The state of Shiva is a perpetual bliss state, Sat-Chit-Ananda. ‘Sat’ means the essence of the universe, essence of the creation, of everything, of the creator. ‘Chit’ is our substratum which is the unitised form aspiring to merge with and be the essence of the creator. When the ‘Sat’ and the ‘Chit’ merge, it’s pure bliss, absolute joy, ecstasy, that is Satchitananda, the state of Shiva. This is what every being aspires for. This is what all spirituality is about. Don’t think that Shiva has an image with the snake on the neck. It’s a state that every being wants to achieve- consistent never-ending absolute bliss and ecstasy without any reason.
All the pleasures that human beings know are temporary. If certain things happen, we are happy, if certain things are absent, we are unhappy. We are like a pendulum going from happiness to sorrow. What we are looking for is perpetual happiness, the state where we are absolutely happy with or without a thing, a person, situation or time. In that state, whatever, wherever, or whoever you look, you only see the vibration. You only see the brightness, whether it is an animal, a bird or a plant, a tree, fruit or a human being, we cannot differentiate. We will only see the brightness, the love, and the unity. The consciousness gets united, and this is absolute freedom, 100% freedom because there is no duality. There is no you and I, there is only oneness.

Q: If we are ill or have a bad period in our life, how to recognise whether this is a situation requiring action or this is cleansing and I should do nothing about it?
A: Any pain or illness is acquired and collected, because of suppressed emotions. It’s all related to the mind. Disease is enhanced and decreased by the mind. Even if the healer heals you, it is temporary, because with the same mindset, it will reproduce. Many people say, “I don’t like this, I like this. Or, I don’t do this, I do this…’’ This is a clear sign of having a very controlling mind. We should actually flow like a river, because what life gives you should be enjoyed whether it is good or bad.
If we are neutral, there’s no suffering. Otherwise, mind makes us suffer, “this is not what I want’’, so acceptance is zero, resistance is high, suffering is absolute. I’ll give you a simple example. When do we eat food? When the clock says it’s time. Not when the stomach says it’s time. Fundamental problem. Because mind is in control. Mind says it’s 1pm, go and eat. Stomach doesn’t even want the food. But we pump it in. This is number one. Likewise, if you listen to the body, it always talks the truth. But we listen to the mind. What happens? Suffering and diseases happen.
Some people told me yesterday that when they are with me here, there’s no hunger, there’s very high energy, so I asked, ”What is it like when you are in the city in your normal life?” They said, ”We eat a lot.” In a different environment, when the mind is absolutely still, the energy is absolute. Otherwise mind takes most of the energy away. In our senses eyes consume most of the energy but they cannot unless the mind is there. In our everyday life also, mind takes energy more because of its oscillation to the past, guilt over the past, or anxiety over the future. By the evening you are tired. And if you look all this time, you have not listened to the body.
The simple remedy for most of the illnesses is listening to the body. Not after the diseases happen, but on a daily basis, even if you are very healthy. There are certain advanced kriyas which need master’s guidance, you can’t do them yourself, but the master guides you. The first level is breath which is easier to catch and once you catch the breath then start going inside. You will drop the breath and you will become the breath particles or the prana which flows through the meridians, we shift from the breath to the prana. After you connect to the particles of prana, which go through the meridians into your system or parts of the body through 72 000 meridians, the next step is you get connected to the sound (nada). And once you go to the nada, first ever nada which catches is the heartbeat, the loudest of the sounds. Then we go to the vibrations of the nada, from the heartbeat to the reverberations. That is the first sound and the reverberations, like ripples of the water. Once you reach the reverberations, you are entering into every cell of the body, each organ of the body. Each organ has a different sound, a different vibratory level and different kind of flavour, flavour in the sense like nature. Each organ is distinct in our system. Not only our system, animals are the same. Once you connect to that, you will understand, each organ talks, it responds and it has a different style or character. What you call a human body is consolidation of all these characters, we fail to see it, that is why we are asking a question how to heal ourselves. All yoga postures which have ever been created or taught, is in tune with these vibrations of the organs. Each posture caters to or corresponds to the vibrations of each organ. This is specific, distinct and relevant. Every microcosm has a distinctive character. And every macrocosm is a collection of microcosms. Various characters mixed together is a macrocosm. That is the visible side of it. But the microcosm which is the invisible side of it, will still have the character. Like if you take one drop of water from the ocean, it has its own character. It definitely tells where it has come from, it will have its taste and feel, but it has a consciousness of its own.

What we are looking for is perpetual happiness, the state where we are absolutely happy with or without a thing, a person, situation or time. In that state, whatever, wherever, or whoever you look, you only see the vibration. You only see the brightness, whether it is an animal, a bird or a plant, a tree, fruit or a human being, we cannot differentiate.

Q: Why does the unconscious mind attract negative thoughts much more easily than positive thoughts?
A: If you have land, you don’t have to cultivate weeds. It grows by itself, but to have beautiful plants, you need to plant and nurture them. Likewise, negativity grows by itself. If you don’t want, your neighbour will give you. But you have to nurture positivity almost like a soldier. Because negativities like hatred, fear, anxiety, insecurity are of lower vibration, they are easy to access. While kindness, love, compassion are of more subtle nature. You have to tune into it. So, if you have to stay in these subtle higher vibrations, you have to make some effort for it. But the other ones come to you.
E.g. if you drop a ball it will bounce a few times, settle down and stay there. The moment your mind settles down on the lower- such as watching soap operas, or gossiping- you will stay there. You cannot evolve higher because all that the mind is capturing, storing, churning, and contributing to the world, will be of lower nature. When you start expressing your higher nature, you need some effort, and there will be much opposition. Place the seven billion people inside a pyramid. At least 40 % are physical people- they only understand physical gratifications such as alcohol, food, sexuality etc. Their gratification level stays there. You can easily see these people. They will be happy only with physical gratifications.
The next level is about 30%. They are of emotional nature. These are the people who watch soap operas. These people thrive on emotions. They feel better than the physical people, because they might be writing poetry, or drama, etc, but at the same time they cannot handle life, they are operating in the emotional plane. You can operate in the world in many ways, but there two main ways: one is respond to the world, second is react to the world. Reaction is from emotions. Response is from the intellect. Some people are reacting all the time. The more you react, the more you fight, resist and complain.
Then, the third level is intellectual people. They are the scientists, creators, the architects, they feel better off than the physical and emotional people because they use their intelligence, but they stay there. The intelligence itself is such that it’s a harder ball to crack. It’s an artificial comfort, ”Oh, I’m aware of all this, I know about atomic theories, or astrophysics.’’ So you feel much better off than a normal man. But again, they cannot handle even a small occurrence in their life.
Either it is physical, emotional or intellectual, there is always a deficiency factor. The deficiency factor is the strength of spirituality. And there is always an element of ego in all these three layers. The next 15% are the spiritual people. They feel better off than everybody else because they are in the spiritual path. But again, they are dogmatically connected to spirituality, like an obsession. Most of these people are still searching. They haven’t found what they are looking for but they realise there is something beyond the physical, emotional and intellectual and there is a spiritual plane which is much more reasonable and valuable, or relevant in one’s existence. You can see many such people in places such as Himalayas. They think they can find what they are searching for there and they get stuck with various fake gurus, exercises and different activities and then they try to brainwash themselves. They try to tell themselves that they have found it. But they are searching and they may not even understand. They delude themselves by saying that they’ve achieved it or they’ve found it. But the criteria of real spirituality is inner silence. If this question is asked, they will have no answer.
And the 1% of the people grow beyond the spiritual, into real realms of spirituality, which is complete nullification. They attain the true spirituality, complete emptiness inside, complete purity, no mind, absolute stillness and perfection, always in the bliss state. There is no duality, no you and I. There is only oneness. This is the absolute state of spirituality. This is attained by very few. Because most people don’t know what they are looking for, so they go for sensations, like, ”Oh, I had a great experience in the meditation today. I spoke to Jesus.” Then I asked, ”Ok, what did Jesus say?” ”He said so many things, you are a great man and all that.” Usually, if you have connected and spoken to an entity as powerful as Jesus, you will not even talk later. You would have attained absolute silence. The whole idea of spirituality in whatever path you follow, is to attain stillness of mind and absolute silence of mind. If this is not achieved, we are moving from one sensation to another sensation. It’s like going to a different café or a restaurant each day. You can taste various food and you can have some sensations then you go home and later on you are hungry again. So even a spiritual path is often like that. This is why in one lifetime if you can catch the highest, you have done with your life. You have done a great job in your life. Otherwise sensation after sensation…with the mind stuck at every level. Body is moving forward, while the mind is stuck in various places. This is agony.
When this communion started, when I was talking to various entities, at one point in time, my urge to be silent and my urge to be away from people was increasing. In fact I was working at that time. But the inner withdrawal was happening and as the silence was increasing, the peace was overflowing. I can tell for certain that if we are able to communicate with any entity, even an entity on the level of angels or guiding patrons, whatever you call it, you become almost silent inside. The mind will become still. This is for sure. And the mind projects reflections, like you are craving to speak to higher entity like Jesus or baba or Babaji, after some time mind will project, you may get a feeling, oh I had a great experience, I spoke to him, but again, coming back to your daily life, if you are still turbulent, if your mind is still restless, this is an absolute sign that this was a projection. Nothing has happened. So we should make sure that we are not deluded at any point in time. This is very important to know in the path of spirituality. We should always remain clean and pure. Otherwise what happens is delusion after delusion and we get stuck with delusions and we even become egoistic about it. We tell people, “Look here, I’m always in touch with the higher entities, I’m talking to Jesus, I’m talking to Shiva…’’ But people will not take you seriously because they know how restless you are.
If you really, really want to pursue spirituality with 100% conviction, and 100% will power, determination, remember three things.
1. Detach from people’s opinions about spirituality. Detach from such people and all concepts. And understand yourself.
2. Number two, if you get a chance to connect to anybody who’s operating on a higher, subtle plane, never leave that person. Out of seven billion people, there are hardly 5% who are connected to the source. So if you get such a person, connect to them like a leech. Because such opportunity doesn’t come twice in one lifetime.
3. The master who came to you is the one sent to you. Don’t go searching for the master from your imagination. He may not fit your will or imagination. You may have imagined a master in a particular form, whom you have seen in a picture or your imagination. But that doesn’t matter. One who came to your class is the one who will take you to the next level.
If you clearly understand these three principles of true spirituality, digest it, practise it, 100% guaranteed, you will touch the highest. Because all these years, you have been only searching for yourself. But you have been searching outside of yourself. That is why you couldn’t find yourself. Remember these principles.

Shift to Beingness, Feel the Absolute

Satsangs from Serbian Retreat with Mohanji, 9-14th May, 2014

Q: Could you tell us more about how to handle collective karma in certain country, in Serbia or South Africa?
A: Collective karma can never be handled individually. We are at a particular place or time because we are supposed to experience a particular karma. This is also why we are born in a particular place, to a particular set of parents, and we had a particular type of education, knowledge, awareness, understanding- this is all fundamental. Likewise, collective karma, collective consciousness creates events. And many people get affected or get fulfilment from the events. This is because we chose it. We wanted to be there in that environment.
Many people who had been with Jesus, have come back many times over into particular places because they had to experience similar or exact type of events and emotions so that they could clarify themselves, overcome and then merge with the consciousness. So every place and situation has a reason, amounting to our experience in the deepest way. But whatever the situation is, if you have seen the light, or if you have higher awareness, you are supposed to express it. You are supposed to live it. And lead through life. This is what Mahatma Gandhi did, this is what all the great leaders did, they lived the truth. They lived the conviction. Maybe that specific generation will not understand, but generations to come will understand. Usually, anybody who spoke the truth, was not appreciated by the contemporaries. But eventually, they became heroes. This is ok, this is the way the world goes. You are seeing the light and you are eager to convey it. The world may say you are crazy, they may not appreciate you, but that’s not our problem. Our purpose is to express, because we have our body. What we are expressing is ultimate truth. If you are living one day, live your conviction. If you are living one day, live truth. If you are living just one day, live like a king.

Mohanji quote - Whatever the situation is

Q: If we are supposed to help somebody and that person is a victim, and we become addicted to that role. Then it’s not actually a helping hand. It is difficult especially as we aren’t established in total awareness. Both professionally and personally we are selfless, but how to respond when at the same time I feel I’m not helping that person. The same thing is with a beggar in the street. I know I’m not helping him if I just give him money. Begging for a living is his lifestyle, he may even be a part of illegal begging business.
A: A school teacher told the children, you should be kind to people and every day you should do some act of kindness. Next day one child said, ”I helped one woman to cross the road.“ Another child said, ”I also helped a woman to cross the road.” Fifteen children said the same thing. Then the teacher realised they were taking the same woman from one side of the street to another 15 times, ha ha. So, if a person is married to victimhood, all you can do is to show the light. You are not supposed to interfere. Victimhood is sometimes chosen. Forget about the victimhood. Any act of kindness or charity that breeds dependency is not an act of kindness at all. You should stay liberated and if you can, liberate another person. This is fundamental. Second thing, you are only supposed to do within your capacity. You cannot change all the beggars in the street because that’s the government’s job. Individually you have limitation. You could join hands with government and help them if you could. But understand you are supposed to do only within your given capacity. Most importantly, any act of kindness cannot be subjective, it has to be objective.

Mohanji quote - Any act of kindness

Q: What effect would the meditation have on children? For example a child aged three or four, or pregnant women? Is it good to bring children to meditate?
A: One-word answer is tranquility. Meditation is actually a serious affair. The meditation won’t help much if children don’t know what they are doing. Children might want to explore life, to experience, express and if we make them sit and meditate, they might not enjoy it. They might be very restless.
I would say that the best thing to do for children is to tell them stories. The bedtime stories are very effective and very useful. Especially the bedtime stories about saints and people who positively influenced the world. How powerful they were. They could have anything in life, but they didn’t want anything. This is strength. When you can have everything, but if you don’t need anything, you are bigger than a king. If you tell them these kind of stories before sleep, this will work during the sleep. It is good to tell children something which will enhance their life.
In my opinion, most of the nursery rhymes and these kind of things which children get to sing and experience, do not help them at all in their character building. For example, ‘Humpty, dumpty fell down, broke his crown. And neither king nor queen or anybody could not help Humpty Dumpty.’ What is the child learning? Helplessness. Like, ”London Bridge is Falling Down…” teaches Destruction. We should give the children something which will strengthen them, make them optimistic. We should ideally teach the children about gratitude, love, compassion and about people who always looked ahead (‘What else can I do?’) Those who are weak, without energy to move on, they always bang on the past, ”This happened in the past, so I am like this.” This is escapism and of course these are unsuccessful people. Those who are successful always looked ahead, ” Ok, this has happened now, let me move ahead.” These are the stories children need to know. And when you convey such stories to them, they will reach a state of meditativeness automatically. They will contemplate on it. This will work in their mind. There are possibilities of this nature. Not the stories of greed, of conquerors who conquered a lot of places and then died.
”Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramahamsa Yogananda influenced a lot of minds, turning them towards spirituality because people realised that there might be life beyond what we see or experience with our limited awareness. And this helped people to explore further. Likewise, you can start with children and bring them to the level of awareness where there are very high possibilities on Earth. You are not born here for nothing. You are here to change the world for the better and if we start creating the thought process of children in that mode, you will have a much better world. And children will be peaceful. reading bed-time storiesThey will be strong. Today education is driving people crazy, ”Compete. Fight. You can even step on other’s toes. Kick the other guy, but win.” Competition is taught from the schools. And it’s not helping the children. They are suffering right from the childhood till they die. So give them right thoughts. Children are born with consciousness. They will take time to evolve to the state to see what we see, but they are fully aware in their state. So we can show them where to look though there’s no need to show them what to see. They will look at these guidelines, and they will evolve, contemplate and automatically meditate. Meditation is not essential in life. If our mind is staying with every thought, word, action, we are meditating all the time. Meditation helps when mind is scattered. Osho says that everybody should meditate at least twenty minutes per day. But if you are too busy, you must meditate for one hour.

Q: Is there a practical way to differentiate between our own desires and desires that we collected from others? Between the inherent ones and acquired ones?
A: If it is our own, we will have pleasure derived from it. If it is others’ we will have pressure. The difference is pleasure or pressure. Everyone has a nature. And if we do what is our nature or what is appropriate for our nature, it’s always pleasurable. That is why a person who wants to be a photographer, will enjoy photography even if he is penniless. Because his heart is there. If you put him as an oil field engineer, he will have a miserable life, although he earns a lot of money. Connect to your nature, so that you are doing what you love to do. Similarly, if we are doing dharma, what we are supposed to do, we will have pleasure, happiness, because there is relief or fulfilment attached to it. Otherwise it’s always pressure and lack of fulfilment.

Q: Can you explain to us the tiny difference in the spiritual path between discipline and contentment in routine? As you said, we should not be bound by anything, but in being disciplined we very often fall into a routine. How to recognize that? Routine is not good.
A: Be conscious about it. It is the nature of subconscious to accept things as they are and store, repeat and reproduce what you repeatedly to. Subconscious cannot see. So, even if you repeat an action for discipline, it will be considered as ‘this is how should be’ by the subconscious and will be repeated. The moment subconscious takes over, conscious mind is not available. For example, when you sat for the first time on the driver’s seat, you were fully conscious about all the techniques that would help you to learn driving. But once you learnt driving and got your licence, you are not so conscious of your driving, you may be singing a song or thinking about food, but the car is going. Similarly, subconscious takes over and manifests, so at every point in time be conscious or disciplined.
Real discipline is equal to conscious discipline, not subconscious routine. Discipline is a good idea, especially in the spiritual path. If you are disciplined about your spiritual practices, for some time, it helps to bring the mind to one point. But if it slips into routine, then there is no control on the mind again. It might have slipped on. That is a very thin line which you should be conscious about.

Q: Adults may talk whatever they want, but children watch their example and learn that way. I can recognise myself reacting like one of my parents. I’d like to know what is them in me and what I am? Is there me at all or do I only live them?
A: Children do absorb impressions. This is why it is always said that parents should lead by example. They should live the life they want to see in their children. Now it is very difficult to differentiate what you have inherited as an entity before you came, and what you have acquired from your parents or your society. It’s very difficult to say, once water and milk is mixed, which is water which is milk. Of course, if there is an imitation of responses or reactions, it clearly states that it is collected from the society or parents.
Q: As for routine and discipline, where is the place for the heart?
A: Discipline is just to bring the mind to an order. If the mind is scattered, there is no heart anyway. Once the mind is stable in one order, it’s only heart. To see your own reflection in the canvas called consciousness, we need to have the mind still. Once the mind is still, there’s only heart.

Q: Mohanji, you are teaching us these days that we need to be witnesses. Can you tell us about the point where we need to cross that line and participate?
A: Witnesshood is also an exercise, you know, where mind is involved. So, first level of witnesshood is in the mind. Then you realise there is something witnessing the mind as well. For example, you see a beautiful flower. Eyes are looking at the flower. If the mind is not present with the eyes, you will not see the flower. You will look, but you will not see. So, mind has to be present for the eyes to see. There are five senses, and to operate these five senses you have only one mind. When we observe that the mind is witnessing the flower, what is this factor that witnesses the mind? We go backwards like that, it’s like peeling an onion, you peel layer by layer and finally there will be nothing. Like that, if you keep witnessing, the witnesshood witnesses itself. Finally there will be nothing to witness. There will be no witness either. It all dissolves. That is why I say an activity should shift to beingness to feel the absolute. There’s no effort in it any more. The effort is in the first level of witnesshood where you have to train your mind. After training the mind, just as you learn driving, the first task is to configure the whole mechanism, and make sure that the mind flows in the right direction, so that you can drive the car. But once you learn to drive, the subconscious takes over. Likewise, once you train the mind to witness, and then the witnesshood becomes the nature, then you are going layer by layer. Effort is to stay in the witnesshood position. Things are happening, you are staying as a witness all the time.

Mohanji org 818 FB

Connect to your nature. If you do what is appropriate for your nature, it is always pleasurable.

Q: Do healings in us happen when we reach a certain level of witnesshood? I’m asking this because of my personal experience. One is when my severe pain disappeared when I simply surrendered to the divine. The second situation was when somebody was near me helping me to go into meditation and due to that the pain disappeared. Was I witnessing it and induced the healing that way? Is it possible to heal when one reaches certain level of witnesshood?
A: It’s not witnesshood. It’s being in the present. Healing is our very nature. Look at the animals. They lick their wound and finally they will be on the road if you don’t interfere. Likewise, we human beings have the capacity to heal ourselves and other people. But our mind is too complex. We gather a lot of dust from the surroundings. We have ignored the ability to heal ourselves and other people. We do have a power to heal, even if you have not learnt any skill. See, if you learn a skill, you are just being conscious that power to heal is activated. The initiations are all activations. We already have something. If you do not have copper in the wire, then you cannot transfer electricity, right? The copper inside the wire is essential for the electricity to travel. Likewise, your base, your substratum is substantial for any type of healing to happen. Whenever people initiate somebody, they are just activating that skill in you which is dormant. And why is it dormant? Because our mind is overworking. Mind is full of phobias, fears, trash, anxieties, which has subdued our nature. The moment we start understanding and appreciating our true nature and decide to explore it, it’s there. It’s already there. We are everything. We have diminished ourselves to nothing. This is why we are suffering.

Your Strengths Lead You

Satsangs from Serbian Retreat with Mohanji, 9-14th May, 2014

Q: In my case, difficult situations in life didn’t strengthen me or made me grow spiritually, but they pushed me even lower, almost disabling me. For example, I cannot do yoga, I have difficulty to meditate… I feel that fear totally controls me. I went through hardships, my father died, I lost my job, everything happened in a moment and I remained totally frozen. Then such heavy emotions started overflowing. I try to hold on something. Job is not a good idea, they threaten me every day, situation in the country is discouraging, too. I can’t find my peace. I try to connect to you, but it seems that these are all much stronger. Why would I choose that?
A: Because of lack of awareness. It’s getting repeated. That’s why I said, purva samskara (past or past life impressions) come back again and again. Whatever you have trapped inside gets repeated in life. If you keep this as your single-pointed intention during this retreat, things can change. What you cannot do yourself, you can do collectively. If the intention is very clear, it has to manifest. But clarity should be there. Absolute clarity, “That is what I want to be.’’ When that clarity is there, things will happen. Otherwise it’s a mixture, always a mixture. We collect various things from various places. We collect from the fiction films, television, people, society, education, religion, from everything. And we mix it up completely, so we get a confused result. But you can have clarity, you have every right to have clarity. Keep a single-pointed intention that total cleansing will happen this time, and keep that intention clear, see how it happens.
I have power to change, but I do not have authority to change a person without the free will of the person. On the white path, it’s always free will. If you are ready to let go, we can help. But free will and Karma are never intercepted or interfered into. No manipulation is allowed.

Mohanji quote - If the goal is total liberation

Q: Why doesn’t the highest materialize more often in the actual world?
A: First of all, stop production of negativity. Production also means accumulation. I’ve written two blogs, Who is Afraid of the Truth 1 & 2 where I’m covering one of these aspects. Negativity breeds negativity; it doesn’t need to be cultivated. But to stay positive and to cultivate positivity, you need to have extreme determination, tenacity, clarity about where you are going and what you are doing. Many people are just ritual oriented with spirituality- they get trained in some programme and they just continue. They think that this is what takes them higher. Any practice or path that you take is just a boat to cross the river. If you stay in the boat forever (and you can), you will be entertained but will not reach the destination. It’s important to set the goal. And if the goal is liberation, do not stop at any sensation or anything smaller. Until you stay totally liberated or attain total liberation, do not stop. Do you know why we usually do not progress in spirituality? Because we get stuck with sensations. We get stuck with some experiences and we want them to happen all the time. If we see colours during meditation, we expect the colours to come each time. It shouldn’t, it need not- you might have evolved further. Just like a river, keep flowing. And whatever twists and turns happen, just flow. This is fundamentally spiritual growth. Then you reach a stage where you are totally peaceful, totally at ease. There is no expectation, contamination or agenda, and it will reach a stage of total bliss at any point in time, any place. There’s one thing you must definitely understand when you are walking the path of spirituality. There is nothing to learn, there is only to unlearn. Whatever you want to become, you already had. And what prevents you from this understanding, is the mind. If you clearly understand this idea, half the war is won. All that you are unlearning is what you have acquired from here. If you decide to be flexible, if you decide to flow like a river, you will 100% eventually reach your destination.

Mohanji quote - Whatever you want to become you already had

Q: Suppose we feel that a person is annoying us for a long time and anger has accumulated to the point of boiling stage. Then for our own release of that emotion, is it ok to e.g. go into the car and shout it out into the ether so that we do not harm that person, but nevertheless let it out of our system?
A: I would rather take it head on, this is my habit. I normally never like going elsewhere or diverting it. I like to face things head on, address things head on and sort it out at that point in time. Do you know why? Because its trace is settled. There are three ways to handle every situation: emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
Spiritually, you will not even be affected. You may not even know that this guy is abusing you.
Intellectually, you will say, “He is expressing his character. My character is different. I need not respond.’’ You have every right to express your character, your constitution and your mindset. And if you are established in spirituality, your only expression will be love, compassion. And hatred, jealousy, these are all sicknesses. As a doctor, how will you treat a sick man? The same way you are treat a person who is suffering all this. With a “Can I help you?’’ One man was abusing another man. He was calling him donkey, monkey, useless, stupid… So the other guy was calling him, “You orange, you apple, you plum.’’ So one guy asked him, “Don’t you hear? He is abusing you in very bad language.’’ He said, “He is expressing his character, I’m expressing mine.’’ This is possible, this is from the intellect.
If you have a need to express any kind of negative or low emotions, understand there is a weakness. If you feel unaffected with whatever happens outside of your body, in the society, in the environment, or in the workplace, understand you are strong. This is an expression of a still mind, a mind which is satiated, which is clean, which is pure, and which is fully established in truth.

Q: If one is unfair to me, and I see through it, and that it stayed in me biting me from the inside, I would like that it doesn’t touch me at all, but it nevertheless does. Why would I unnecessarily be bothered? What could I do to be peaceful and not affected by it?
A: I handled corporate business for many years. It is always said, when you are at the top of the company, you are always lonely. There could be poisonous snakes inside and outside the office. I always used to handle them head on. I tell them I understand their problem, or I understand their ways; I could be pretty dangerous if they want me to go in that way. I sometimes challenge them. I say, “You do whatever you like, but you must be able to stand what I do. If you are able to stand, then let’s have a deal.’’ It works. Mostly the manipulative people are cowards. They cannot look eye to eye. They shiver. So, the moment you are stronger, they go underground. I’ll give you one example from my professional life.

I was the country manager of the company in the early 2000s in Sultanate of Oman. We used to handle car carriers and oil tankers. So my standard instruction to my operation team was that which tanker comes first is boarded first. This is the standard instruction. They do not have to check with me which shift to board first. Once I was attending the conference in Hong Kong, I had a paper to present and I was talking in the programme and I was very busy that day. So I saw a lot of missed calls from my office. Normally this guy calls me from the office only in the case of emergency. I went into the office and called the manager of operations and asked, “What’s the problem?’’ Then he said, “There is an instruction from my head office in Dubai that we should board a particular vessel first, even though it has not come first. What should we do?’’ “I’m responsible.’’ I said. “Follow my instruction. Don’t follow anybody else’s instruction. Just follow ethics in business.’’ So the operation manager went ahead and boarded the first vessel first. Instead of flying home directly to Muscat, I flew to Dubai. I went straight to the office. I met this man who was head of Dubai operations, the country manager. I told him, ”You interfere in my work, you take the responsibility. If you take the responsibility, you can do this. Otherwise, don’t mess with my work. Let me do my job, you do your job.’’ Ever since I had no problem from Dubai. You know what I mean? Better to face it on and talk straight. It’s not rude. It’s being practical, and it’s 100% ethical. Nobody can say that I did something wrong. If it was the other way around, if I had allowed it, this would have undermined my position, as well as position of the operations manager and my staff. They would be disoriented. The point I’m saying is, you can always stay with ethics in business or in any activity in life.
If you are not affected, it surprises the person who is trying to harm you. They may try something more. Otherwise, the best thing is to confront the whole situation head on.

Q: Thank you. Then what about people who are deliberately cynical and manipulative, though I may do what you suggested? Like in “The Antichrist” by Friedrich Nietzsche, what if they persist in this negative intention until they see the effect? And then you have to do something while it keeps bothering you?
A: These manipulative or negative kind of people are working from the level of insecurity. They have to cling onto something for survival, while we don’t have to. Because the white path, the path of liberation is powerful. We are liberated in existence while we are living every moment. So, if you continuously express liberation, let them do whatever they like, it doesn’t matter. In the spiritual world also, there are manipulative people. There are people who blame each other, that’s why I said, ”Who is afraid of the truth?’’ I mentioned all this. Either they kill the true master, or they character-assassinate the true master or try both. But eventually, truth will always win. So it’s better to always be truthful. Whatever you do, it should not be for a selfish interest. That is power. Real power. The moment we have a selfish interest, we have a manipulative mind, then we have to safeguard ourselves. If we have the intention that it’s good for the people or situations, or being kind by nature, we are powerful.
Let them do whatever they like. We cannot change the situation. Accepting yourself as you are is very important. You can’t be somebody else. As the saying goes, ”All others are taken already.” Ha, ha… You have to be yourself.
Second, accepting the environment which you chose consciously or unconsciously. This also you need to accept. These two are essential in everybody’s life, whether you are spiritual, or non-spiritual, it doesn’t matter, but these are realities. You cannot change them.
There’s one more thing. What attracts these things to us? Have you thought about it? What is attracting such situations and such people into our life? There’s something in us which attracts. This is what we must consider. The same thing which attracted me to you, or you to me, similarly, something else attracted this, too.
Number two, think about another thing. ”Can I use this to step higher?” or ”Can I climb higher using the negativities?” This can make you stronger, your will power can be stronger. Use this as a stepping stone for something higher. This is possible as well. So two things. One is introspection, ”What attracts these people?’’ Secondly, negativities are actually good, because they help you to introspect. If you do succumb to it, it is powerful. It can help you to take one step forward. You attracted this group to you. This is not a manipulative group. But another set of people who are probably manipulative has also come. So there are various aspects of you in this plane, isn’t it? It’s worth analyzing, and worth detaching from.
You should also remember, whatever you resists, persists because you are energizing it. Which plant grows more? The one which you water and muck more. So here you are energizing a negativity, it will grow very tall.

Q: I agree completely, but what is older, hen or egg? I would absolutely love to let go of this magnetism for this negativity. I’m looking forward to getting up one day and saying, “Wow, it’s gone!’’ But how?
A: I took your anger away. I can also take this away. Remember how angry you were? Now there’s no anger.
Q: (Sighing with relief) Yeah…
A: There are two things to understand.

Number one. Without the learning happening, the thing should not be removed. This is a karmic theory. The learning has to happen. That is why even great masters allow you to go through the process, so that you understand, this is the story. Then they help you. It’s not that they want to test you all the time, but learning has to happen, otherwise there is no progress.
Number two. The moment you surrender, I remove it. Right? That is how you met me. Give full application, surrender whatever you can and tell me what happens in three months time.

Q: What about family members in such relationships?
A: Certain set of souls come together in a family, and you are a part of it to experience a particular set of relationships. If we are talking about manipulative, not so good relationships in this life, it could be your colleague in the office. If it is so deep and intense, it could be your relative in your next life. This is how it happens, you cannot avoid it. Whenever there is an emotion overflowing, it definitely creates a destiny. It doesn’t die just like that. It leaves a deep impression in your subconscious, which provokes a new reality. It materializes into a new life. Feeling of injustice always leads to anger. Anger leads to further emotions, sometimes guilt. It’s a vicious circle. One leads to the other. And that gets imprinted so deeply in our system, which provokes an experience of that nature.
This is exactly where we have to stop. This is where we need awareness. This is why we need to be connected to the higher vibrations or higher frequencies. When we are connected to higher frequencies, none of these matter. “Ok, this is life, this is happening, I move on.’’ That level of detachment will keep you strong. Then you will live your life in a completely different way. You will dare. You will have no idea what fear is. We are too much in a hurry to be a good boy or a good girl in the society, for which we move backwards. We follow other people’s opinions about us. They have no idea who we are. They are only looking at the physical form. And our expressions end up deciding who we are. We must understand that even we do not know who we are. This is why it is important to connect to your nature. There are some strengths in you which are going to lead you through life, which stay from the birth till death. And there are some weaknesses in you, which if you do not energize too much, they will drop off.
Energize the strengths, and do not energize the weaknesses. It means if you concentrate on your strengths and build upon it, 100% guaranteed you will be successful in life.
And in the case of relatives you don’t have a choice- they have come to your life together as soul mates. All the people who are associating with you in this life are your soul mates, you cannot change them because you took the decision before you started this journey. Let it be. No friction, no resistance. But when you are choosing certain friends, choose the friends who elevate you, who will pull your hand and will not judge you. Instead of friends who will constantly talk about other people, and try to drag you down into discussion about people. Discussion about people is absolutely nonsensical because they have nothing to do with us- they are not paying our bills. And if you concentrate on holding somebody’s hand and helping them take the next step, your life is worthwhile.

Mohanji quote - Take one decisionI always say, give more to the world than you have taken from the world. Take one decision, ”I’m going to give much more to the Earth, than I have consumed from it.’’ Your life will be a totally different story. We are only demanding from the Earth, we are not giving anything back. This is why we have agonies. We don’t feel. We are asking for more but we should give back more instead. And giving to the world is not a big deal, it’s not about money. Actually the most expensive thing which you carry with you is time. Because you have chosen a particular duration for this life, every moment has a value. Spending time is money in real terms, much more important than physical money.
So, when I say, give back more than you take from the Earth, e.g. a small child is crying. You put your hands around the child and say, ”I love you.” Mean it. Not for the sake of pleasing somebody, but from the heart you say, ”I love you.” That is enough, because the child will understand. Likewise, you deal with life or the world with love. That itself is a big favour to the Earth. Decide there will be no violence in your thoughts, words, actions, and you’ll consistently express love in every segment. It’s not in spending money, it’s in your attitude, that the Earth is happy.
Whenever you say, ”I love you” to a person who is suffering, your only interest should be his or her happiness. There should be no selfishness. As I was explaining to somebody earlier, when you give something to somebody, whatever you can share, always give with a feeling of gratitude that this person has enhanced my being because he or she accepted it. Not because ”I’m better off, and I’m helping”. That should not be the attitude. The attitude should be that of gratitude. That person has made my life better, and I’m grateful for that. So that all the time you are operating in the selfless mood. When you are hugging somebody you mean it. Then there is nothing to worry. The moment that we are masking, or the moment we decide to pretend, we have to remember the pretension. The moment we are real and true, there’s nothing to remember. We can be natural. I am telling you to be natural, so the mind is clean.

Satsangs from Serbian Retreat with Mohanji, 9-14th May, 2014

Dialogues with Mohanji, part 1

Mohanji opening the retreat in Serbia 2014

Mohanji opening the retreat in Serbia 2014

As I explained earlier, time is very fast nowadays so our actions get enhanced in real time. Hence this time is very suitable for something drastic to happen in life or you can make genuine life changes using this time. This silent environment also helps enhance your actions.
This whole programme is also in tune with the current times when the Moon has more strength. Moon controls a lot of factors, with a direct impact on water element and the mind. We do all the transformation and work while feeling silence in every aspect. Whenever you try to become silent, the mind will be more active. Mind will want you to talk, so please be aware. You have to do this consciously.

Detoxication

Q: I stopped smoking two weeks ago and now it is very difficult for me to breathe. And I also feel emptiness. Is that the void that I used to fill with my smoking?
A: If you leave anything for some time, not only cigarettes, it will leave a vacuum. This is very normal. There are two reasons.
One is that you left smoking, so there is a vacuum. You are undergoing a change- doing a completely different thing from your normal activity and in a different environment. The best way is to fight and overcome it. If you surrender to it, the tendency will resurface. First, satisfy the mind with the right thought, “This is ok, I’ve had enough, I’ve gone through it, I don’t need it any more. This is fine.’’ Then, substitute the habit with breathing.
The second reason is stored emotions. One of the powerful techniques we do during the retreat to expel the stored emotions, is gapless breathing in the morning.

The body craves for nicotine. Scientifically, I think it takes about 12 days for the body to adjust to the state of no nicotine. So this is normal. And breathing will improve slowly, slowly. Allow, but continue with the breathing.

Breathing

Q: I learnt that when you breathe in, you go down taking the air to the base of your spine and when you breathe Mohanji MMS_7752out, you go up the spine. Now we are doing it the other way round. We breathe in, taking cold energy up, and we breathe out taking hot energy down. Is there any difference between the techniques?
A: It is like drawing water from the well. You are taking stuff from the inside and throwing it outside. The whole exercise is to expel whatever is stored inside. If things do not get expelled, it is very likely that you will continue with the habits, the same routines. You have to have software change inside, for which you need to empty. If we do not empty ourselves, we cannot fill in anything. Because we are already over-full from many lifetimes with past experiences, impressions and the samskaras. So we are consciously trying to remove everything and become ourselves- completely empty. I’ll explain it in a simpler way: imagine the body as a trash can, without head and limbs. The impressions of every encounter with people, places and situations leave a residue into the system. The heavier the impression is, the lower it goes. The lighter stays up.
When you breathe, you consider the spine like a pillar which you use to reach the highest. but the actual spine is in the middle of the body. But if I explain it like that, you will never be able to meditate. How will you know the exact centre of the body? So, I always say ‘spine’ because it is easy to connect.
When you take the things away, the topmost point is the top of the head in our system and the lowest point is the space between your anus and scrotum. This is the central line. The kundalini has to start from the lowest point and reach the point of the head. So breathing has to change from the front to the middle to reach the highest. The whole breath pattern must change, but you can’t change this in one day. You need to try and slowly detach from the front to the middle and start breathing like this. Work together. There are techniques but they can be taught only when you reach a certain level.
So the initial thing is to expel, to throw out. And then you start feeling with silence. The scriptures say, “You must taste each breath.’’ Don’t just breathe, but taste it. That means you should be really, really aware of your breathing and breathe so that it will be only in the vertical level. The advantage of having vertical breathing is that, whatever happens outside, it will not touch you. You will not be affected by people, places, situations, events. You would do your job but you would always be balanced and firm. Absolute silence. But it doesn’t mean we are sitting and procrastinating, in the jungle or caves. We are not affected by anything. We are absolutely superbly peaceful inside, for which this breathing helps.

And the other aspect is, if you breathe like this, there is 80% or 90% chance that when you die, the soul leaves the body through the top of the head, the same place where it came inside the body as a child. For 90% people, the soul exits through the mouth with the last breath upon death. This is a 100% chance of having another birth. The whole aim of the spiritual path is to bring the soul back through the same point (top of the head) so that you can die at will. The main reasons for the soul not able to come out through the top of the head are ego, mind, concepts, all sorts of blockages we have collected from the society, education, parents, religions etc- all this clutter makes us heavy. So the soul can only leave through the mouth with the baggage. Whatever we have accumulated is carried forward to the next birth as a pending agenda or desires.

Slipping into sleep and slipping into death is almost similar. For example, we have no control on our sleep, we just lie down and go into sleep. If you are able to sleep consciously- which means your consciousness is available during transition from waking to sleep- then at the time of death, the same will be available. If you can maintain the awareness through waking, dreaming or sleeping states and if you transcend these two states with awareness, that means you are fully aware all the time.

This is a very powerful technique, this meditation during sleep, or during transition from waking to sleep. Basically you are watching yourself slipping into sleep, which means you are aware of the transition from waking to sleep, so you are an external entity watching yourself and seeing yourself changing realms. If that can be done, there is a major shift in the consciousness. Most of your thoughts will die, most of your desires will die, and you will be steadfast with your lean karma- only what you are supposed to do on Earth.

Q: How can we use this vertical breathing as an introduction for the meditation “360 degrees’’?
A: The purpose of 360 degree meditation is also to bring the breath to the centre. Rooting in the spine means breathing through the centre. As I mentioned earlier, I cannot say to concentrate on the exact middle of your body because you will get confused. So, it’s better to say the spine. Even in 360 degree meditation we are talking about prana. Prana is not entering through the breath. It’s entering through the top of the head. This is why even if some refrain from breathing, they have no shortage of prana. But we have to say breath, otherwise we would confuse people. E.g. ‘Concentrate on your nose, breathing, etc.’ They will get completely confused. We have to use certain generic hings so that it helps. If people ask me specifically, I answer. People asked me, “Where does prana enter the body?’’ I answered, “The same place where the soul came from.’’ Because it’s all the same. Prana nourishes the soul. So 360 degree meditation is basically vertical breathing in a systematic way so that it teaches you to stay in the center. That is why it is quite popular now. A lot of people are meditating and they are moving into silence. See, whatever takes you to silence is good for you. Because mind is restless by nature.

Q: When we did breathing exercises when we were lying down, I couldn’t breathe. I feel I stopped breathing and floated upwards. It’s a new experience to me, is it ok?
A: In such situation be natural, because naturally you detach yourself from your body which is anyway a thing to be detached about! When you detach from the body, so much release happens immediately in your system. While this is not enlightenment, during the stage of enlightenment, the soul expands suddenly, and the body is oriented only by prana (from the top of the head) and independent of air or breathing. This air constitutes the pancha prana, the five types of air which are running our body. When breath becomes still, immediately it’s switched over by prana. This is not the death state. It’s an absolute state.

Bodies and souls

Q: Historically, it seems to me that we have more and more bodies and less souls because a lot of souls are not turning back to bodies. What can you tell us about this? Is it possible that there are bodies without souls?
A: You need to have a body to experience this plane of existence at Earth. Technically, from the dark side, you can also have a body without a soul. They can rejuvenate a body without a soul and operate on it, akin to charging the battery of the mobile phone. As long as the battery exists, the phone works. We don’t practise these kind of things. But to have normal expressions and normal experiences, you need to have a soul. A soul is needed to have the path of destiny, a pattern of life, experiences, expressions and character from birth till death. But Earth is a plane almost like a laboratory. You can have multiple experiences with the same body. Even in general terms, one person can be a father, a child, a husband, or a brother, any different kind of combination. In this plane, the main expression of relativity is through relationships. And generally, the string that links everything is called emotion. This is our plane of operation.
When the Earth started taking a different speed from 1986, the whole vibratory level and behavioral pattern of all beings have undergone a structural change. So, whatever was the basic nature, got enhanced. In the last 4-5 years, you can observe that people who are spiritual by nature, became more spiritual. Negative people became more negative, kind people became kinder. As I said, this is the plane where body is required for experiences and positive and negative can exist at the same time in almost equal power. Many souls have come to experience this speeding time, both positive and negative. As per my calculation, all the emotions have to come out by the end of 2017. All the negativities have to be cleaned. From 2018 to 2022 in the second half of the transition, you will see things settling down with a lot of stuctural changes across the world. I’m expecting a lot of destruction and calamities, akin to a house that cannot be repaired any more. You have to demolish and rebuild it. People are becoming more emotional, chasing terrestrial things, finding no satisfaction, coming back and searching elsewhere. They cannot find it searching outside and then they start searching inward. All these phenomena are happening simultaneously now. One year is equal to fifty years today. Your effort is multiplied at that level. If you put an effort in the positive way, it multiplies in that level. If there is a negative effort, it also multiplies. We have to be very conscious about it. If there are many on the path of enlightenment, there are as many on the path of depression. This is a sign of the time. Also, it is very difficult to differentiate between the positive and the negative even in the spiritual path. But you will understand on close observation. Negative always uses fear of the mind. Cults always use fear to bind people. Positive has nothing to do with fear ever. I always say, “I don’t know what fear is.’’ There is no room for fear. We are actually extremely powerful, until the mind blocks us.
But true spirituality is always the path of liberation. Liberation means you are liberated on a daily basis and at the time of death. It means, we are fine today, whether there is a particular place, food, situation or person available or not. That means we are peaceful every moment. If we are peaceful that way, how can there be fear? Many masters, paths, or teachers today (I’m not talking about religion, religion is not from today, it has been since ages) are using the white symbols, such as liberation, to bind people. This plane is the plane of manipulation. So we should be careful about this, too. In reality, you are born free and you have to die free. There is no way you can be bound by anybody. This is unfortunately why when any master speaks the truth, we kill him as soon as possible so that people can use their teaching the way they want.

Sleeping with awareness

Q: Three weeks ago, I was completely aware of the moment when I slipped into the sleep state. But that happened only once.
A: This is good enough, but there is good news and bad news.
Follow-up Q: Bad news first :)
A: Bad news is that you are not in control of the situation. Good news is that you experienced it. Now you know what to experience. You know this thing now, so you can practise it consciously.

Q: When I fall asleep, I am aware of everything, both the dream and waking reality, even the surroundings, but I can ask questions to the unconscious me who is sleeping. And I get immediate answers which I almost cannot catch and remember. They are like a flash, and I get the complete answer to my question.
A: This is what we call trance. That is not what we talked about earlier. In the state of trance, there is no ego so you will usually connect to any body, person, entity or even your higher consciousness in that state. The masters who are connected to the source are always available, just like electricity, all you have to do is switch on. The moment you move into the trance, you are connected to the masters. Or you could be connected to me as you are close to me. So, it doesn’t matter which body, but the source is one. Expressions or the bodies are different because of different reasons. In the higher level, it is one consciousness, many expressions. If you just transcend one level from the Earth, you will know that these names have no value, like Mohanji, Baba, Jesus… everything dissolves. Then it’s just consciousness. So, mostly when you are in the state of trance, you connect to the consciousness which is available. But on the terrestrial plane you might be connected to me- a person called Mohanji- but through him, ultimately connecting to the consciousness. Bottomline is you get your answer. But the mind will discriminate, oh, did Mohanji speak, or did another person speak, did Jesus speak, or did Baba speak? But in absolute sense, it is all one and the consciousness answered you. Generally, if you are able to see yourself in the trance state, your breath pattern will be vertical. Secondly, when you are in vertical breathing, you can easily slip into trance state, too. This is not a meditative state, it’s beyond. Furthermore, you will be in 360 degree awareness.
Follow-up Q: I am using this also for problem-solving. I trained myself to wake up and write down these answers I get and then go to sleep.
A: Problems are only on this plane. Other planes don’t have problems, haha.

Visualisation

Q: Yesterday and today, when I closed my eyes, I see a yellow square. I think that is a symbol of muladara, or something like that.
A: It is not yellow, it is golden. It’s the symbol of the path. Symbolwise, it’s the fire, stomach centre. But this is not that actually. Many people see the golden square or golden triangle. That is because that’s our path. Golden path is the path of liberation in the ultimate, which means we are travelling towards total liberation where we are merging with the supreme consciousness, having the brightness of a thousand suns. In Ganesha mantra it says, “Surya Koti Samaprabha”. Surya means the sun. Koti means ten million, one crore. Brightness of ten million suns, that is the body of Lord Ganesha. Similarly, the path is total brightness, which means everything dissolves and you become the total brightness.

Q: When I meditate, I can see my eyes circulating around looking at surroundings, and I breathe spontaneously, is it right way to do it, or not?
A: Continue with it, what works for you may not work for other people. The aim is that you reach silence and 360 degree awareness. Somebody may not need this action of moving eyes around, but will immediately reach stillness in all directions. When there is action, mind is working. Whichever direction there is difficulty, that is the sign that there are blockages. The more blockages, the more difficulties. And that is usually related to relationships. What binds you to the Earth are relationships, e.g. my family, my daughter, my son, my wife, my house, my property, my dog… everything. Solution is awareness, witness it, detach from it, witness it, detach from it. “Ok, this is happening, I move away. Again it’s happening, I move away.’’ This is a constant exercise.
Finally you will be automatically in the detached position and watching even while in relationships, while people are becoming extremely emotional. That solves relationship problems.
The main reason for gravity is our guilt from the past. Second is our concept about morality against fulfilment. Life is about fulfilment. But morality makes us bound. So there is a struggle between fulfilment and morality or even character. These are all related to relationships. I’m not saying fulfilment is killing somebody; fulfilment means harmless fulfilment. If you are able to stick to the fulfilment, then you are in the right track. Fulfilment is always related to karma. Karma -> fulfilment, karma –> fulfilment. That is how life goes. Blockages are related to mind. Mind has concepts, morality, guilt and all sorts of garbage. When we take a decision about our life with all that garbage, we have failures.

Acceptance and objectivity

Q: When you are living with the people of very negative…
A: You are lucky. You can develop objectivity, that is the best thing. See, when you are with the negative, we become extremely detached and objective. Have you noticed? This is a good thing.
Follow-up Q: Well, I have a mother-in-law…
A: I can’t help mother-in-law… This is my experience, I meet thousands of people. The people who have a beautiful family life, stick to a comfort zone spirituality, which means they do it just for the sake of practice. I hardly see them evolve to higher dimension. But when there are many problems, for example, one man used to come to me in Dubai many years ago. He was a watchman of the port. His salary was very, very small. But religiously, he would come and he used to give me some money. I said, “I don’t want your money.’’ I never used to take money anyway. He said, “What is the difference between my money and rich man’s money?’’ I said, “Your money is much more valuable. That is why I’m not taking it.’’ But he would insist and he was evolving so high that sitting in the port that he would know what I was doing. The connection became so strong that he would be sitting there and he would say, “Mohanji, you met these and these people. One person was very sceptical. He was not receptive.’’ How much he evolved by just connecting! But everything was going wrong with him. He had no money, stayed with 8 people in one room, could afford little food but all the difficulties strengthened him in spirituality. On the other hand, very comfortable people with nice family etc keep asking the same questions for years. Not an inch of progress. Fundamentally, your destiny is decided. When you took the body, you decided, “In this time period, location, body, I will live on earth.’’ So positive or negative surrounding is also selected before you took the birth. It is acceptance that is very important. Accept yourself, you chose this body, you chose this life, and you chose the situations. People come to your life at certain points in time, but they will come. So there’s no value in such things as “Why did they come, I never expected it!’’ They were supposed to come, they came. Even your meeting me today was decided before. Otherwise you could have met any of the other seven billion people. But we met. We are sharing the space. This has value. So acceptance is primary for spiritual success. Unless you accept your situation you cannot evolve, because you are in conflict with the basic.

Passion for Compassion

Talk at the MeVeg Congress in Dubai on 3rd December 2013
meveg- Dubai 2013 Mohanji Passion for Compassion
Have you thought about why we have discussed food so much today? Because something is terribly wrong with the whole thing. Something is not right. That is why we are talking about food so much. Whenever we disconnect from ourselves, we have to release the stress in some way. So we either eat a lot, or we indulge in sensory pleasures. This is exactly why we are discussing food so much. The moment you start connecting with yourself and listening to your own body, your vibrations and eating habits will completely change. You will eat only what you need to eat. Diseases are also similarly related. Whatever you trap, becomes disease.

I look at life in simple terms. Because I do not understand most of the things you have said. I feel that intellectually we can analyse so many things, yet analysis never helps you to convert it into wisdom. It is good to know and all these things are important to understand, but unless knowledge becomes wisdom, there is no change in life. Knowledge has to be converted to wisdom. Knowledge sits in the head. It only takes you up to your grave. When you die, it dies. But wisdom sustains you, it sustains the species outside on the Earth. If you look at the scriptures of any religion, all the prophets, all the great masters have spoken simple truths. We have complicated it. We have interpreted it in the wrong way. So my understanding of life is keep it simple. Eighty per cent of our vital functions are not in the control of our conscious mind. That is why we are alive here. Heartbeat, circulation, respiration, digestion and most of the other vital functions are controlled by the subconscious mind. We have nothing to do with them. So when we have nothing to do with it, we stay alive. However, the idea is to be conscious about it. The first level is be conscious about the breathing. Be conscious about the vibrations of yourself, that is from swara to nada, (nada is the beats of the body). Heartbeats, circulation, there is always a rhythm. Be aware of the rhythm. Then you start going within and you start transferring things which the subconscious usually handles, to your conscious mind. You can stop the circulation of your blood. You can eat what you like. You can digest at will. You can do everything which you call a miracle play, and which masters are performing.

MeVeg Congress in Dubai - Mohanji - Passion for Compassion
I’ll tell you my experience. Many years ago I used to go to the Himalayas. Even now I go. Actually I am just returning from the Himalayas. Yesterday I was there. I was also exploring. I met a man sitting outside an ashram. The mother of the ashram was taking food outside the ashram to give to this man. I asked her, “Why are you taking the food outside? Why can’t he go inside?“ Then the mother said, “He does not eat food.“ I said, “Are you making fun of him? You are giving him food?!“ She said, “No. If you give it as an offering, he will consume it.“ Then I was curious to know whether he actually ate the food. He was a young guy. He looked like he was in his 20s, and sufficient food for four people was given to him. He consumed the whole thing. I said, “Mother, you said he doesn’t eat. He eats! I cannot eat half of what he has eaten!“ She said, “He consumes food, but he disintegrates it from the throat. It doesn’t go down. He has already stopped the secretion of juices inside. So he does not actually need food, but if somebody offers him food as a blessing, he eats it. “ And so he had disintegrated it. He had already stopped the functions, so he was safe.
This was interesting for me at that point in time because actually this is exploration. Perhaps you may have read Encounter with an Ageless Saint of Himalayas . This is a true living guy. He is more than a hundred years old. He asked, “He was chanting the mantra to avoid food. What actually happened? I can chant the mantra, and the food is still consumed. Where is the problem?“ So this mantra, chut dipasi, was chanted to disintegrate the food from the throat, and there was no appetite. But what happened is it was in the mind level. Whatever you do in the mind level cannot be converted into reality. It just happens in the mind as a routine. So it should go within. Deeper. Whatever you try to do as a method to convert yourself should be deeper. This is the point.

passion for compassion 2 Mohanji

If you read that blog, the story is there. It might be interesting for you. I won’t talk further about it. My point is that it’s interesting to know there are so many variations.
Now the subject I’ve been asked to talk about is Passion for Compassion. This is basically because, as you have said, the population of seven billion people is growing into nine billion people. What have we consumed? We have almost consumed all the forest. We have consumed most of the animals which are in the forest. We have almost consumed all the animals which are in the forest and taken their land. One third of the total grain cultivation is used for feeding animals. To produce 1 pound of meat, you need 12 pounds of grain. If you give this 12 pounds of grain to one small family, that family will survive for a month. One pound of meat will fulfill only once. So our whole ecological calculation is wrong and we are trying to firefight now. Where is the problem? The problem is in our understanding. We have no idea how the Earth feels about it because we form and we destroy. On average (I’m not a person of statistics, please forgive me for that, this is from what I’ve read on the internet) seven billion people consume millions of other beings. You can imagine how much space is consumed, how much food is consumed, and at the end of the day, what are we producing?
And no animal in the world dies with happiness. Forget about the pictures in the advertisements. This is not true. You know, a happy cow removing its meat and giving it you. It is not so. It is killed. And further, I was not aware, until I watched programs from the USA, I never realised that the dairy industry is equally responsible. I never knew that eight million calves are slaughtered per year in the USA alone. I never realised 1.5 million pregnant cows are slaughtered in London alone. Just imagine! I feel that motherhood is one of the most beautiful things on earth. Completely unconditional. A mother feels unconditionality towards the child. And the cow cries through the night. You can see the videos on YouTube. The cow cries the whole night through looking for her calf. The calf had already been killed. It was a male calf and it was killed because the dairy industry does not need it. And then, the cow is slaughtered later.
Likewise, one of our people in Europe, made a blog based on my speech called Velocity of Violence I asked, “What changed you? What made you feel so?“ One thing I saw. A herd of cattle was taken to the slaughterhouse. One of the cows delivered a calf in the truck. The truck driver had promised to deliver the cows to the abattoir at a particular time, otherwise he would lose his job. So he put the calf outside on the road, took the cow and slaughtered the cow. The calf was rescued by the police. The pictures are in the blog too. This was very hard. The new mother was slaughtered because the world needed the meat. And the calf was fortunately taken away, otherwise it would have been taken to the slaughterhouse as well. This is one thing which touched my heart.
The second thing was some CCTV footage from the UK. A flock of sheep was coming in for slaughter. One lamb was drinking milk. First he killed the mother, then he killed the baby. You know, while the child was drinking the mother’s milk! I cannot even believe that we do this kind of things! These are a few things that really touched my heart.
And how does passion happen? When conviction is clear. When your conviction is absolute, passion is automatic. What was Jesus’s strength? He was fighting against the established systems. Dangerous. He ended up getting assassinated. But what saw him through? Conviction. Conviction leads you to passion. And especially anti-cruelty. I am not a campaigner of any food habits because I do not really know what it is all about. I have understood something from what all of you have said here. But if you ask me about any technicality, I will not be able to answer. However, I believe in non-violence. If you have to consume food, let it be non-violent. A tree produces an apple, an orange or a tomato. We do not cut the tree to pluck the tomato. It’s like the nails. It doesn’t hurt the plant. If you pluck a mango from the plant, it doesn’t hurt the plant at all. And actually the plant wants it because this is for the continuation of the species. When you throw the seed away, it grows into another plant. So, the total alignment of the whole thing should be understood clearly. Earth wants that. Earth would like to have continuation of species. Not destruction of one species for the creation of another one.
Second thing is that, some people have sent me emails asking what about forest animals. There is a programme on National Geographic Channel which provides clear guidance on that. A herd of deer are running and lions are chasing them. They all move in a particular direction, and then suddenly one particular deer takes off in another direction. It’s like an understanding amongst this clan – ok, you people escape, I will sacrifice myself today. Sacrifice and victimhood are two completely different things. What motivates a person is the sacrifice. Sacrifice motivates you. Victimhood, i.e. if you are bound, captured and destroyed, is a completely different ball game. It amounts to murder. Sacrifice is not murder. It actually gave its life away for the survival of the rest of the species. This is an understanding. And the same video shows lions being fully happy. They have eaten, they were sleeping while the deer were slowly walking in front of them. So there is an understanding going on here. Nature is always wise. It is justified. Things they do are well justified. They will never do something like what we do. We kill for pleasure. Three days ago I was recording a video because Animals Australia wanted my opinion or comment, whatever you call it. So I recorded it and sent it to them. One person asked me what was the role of humans in the preservation of nature. I said it was only destruction (laughter). We have already destroyed nature because of our non-understanding. We have no clue. That is why so many species are extinct today.

Unconditional Love

Unconditional love is not passivity

Q: Unconditional love is our true nature. How is it possible in this world, where somebody can attack your wife and children? There is a lot of aggression, isn’t it justified to respond and defend yourself? So how can you not respond in a violent way if something like this happens?

M: Unconditional love is not passivity. Unconditional love is basically the nature of life. Everything is coming out of unconditional love, everything is dissolving back to unconditional love. But people who do not understand themselves or adopt other desires and characteristics; they express various emotions in daily life. When the Shaolin Buddhist temple was established, the whole warfare of kung fu was taught only for self-defense, not for attacking. Why do monks established on the spiritual path, learn martial arts? You have to defend yourself.

Shaolin monks

Why do monks established on the spiritual path, learn martial arts? You have to defend yourself.

But attacking somebody is violence. Defending yourself cannot be called violence. So definitely unconditional love is our true nature, but that doesn’t mean that you can become a doormat and let everybody walk over you.
You know, this non-understanding has affected many people. They became spiritual and became helpless. And when they become helpless, they expect other people to come and help. It doesn’t happen. So, unconditional love is definitely our true nature and we should defend ourselves, but not attack.
Another thing – if somebody abuses you, and you don’t respond, they get confused. They will do everything possible to intimidate and provoke you, but if you continue to be uninterested or unresponsive, they will go away. You have every right to express your true nature, which is unconditional love.

Tests of unconditional love

Mohanji quote - People take many births

When Jesus was alive, many people were connected to him. Not only his disciples, there were so many who were not walking or travelling with him yet were deeply connected to his consciousness. Many of them were really committed and really affected when he was crucified. But they were helpless to fight against the masses. Those people lived his teachings of unconditional love but failed to express it when a crisis like crucifixion happened. So, those people take many births further, to learn to be loving in all situations and conditions. Because conditional expression blocked them from their interest of becoming one with Jesus. So they took many lifetimes to feel, experience and then again express unconditional love always like Jesus.
–“How can somebody do injustice? How dare they?” These questions keep coming back, anger happens and then you slip in the path again. Even today, how much we resist in our own lives? We resist every situation, we want analysis for every action. And analysis takes the fragrance from every experience. It’s very, very important to be one with the experience and float with the experience. It doesn’t matter whether it is good, bad or whatever; just go through the experience. Because that will keep you in the now, in the present.

Have you ever wondered, if we just look at the masters of the past centuries and just understand them, there is no need for any further masters or guides in life. Each one of them expressed completeness, in all aspects. But each one had a flavor and they delivered the truth in their own way, for their people and their period.

Q: So masters have to keep on coming?

They keep coming, yes. If you take the Bhagavad Gita, which Krishna delivered to Arjun; Arjuna understood that time. Today we need explanation after explanation for every 4 verses, and still we don’t understand. That is our nature, we have diluted ourselves many times over. Krishna is a very potent and flamboyant character who has provoked various expressions in people over generations. Each point of his life is celebrated – as a child, youth, warrior, politician and also saint. He lived every aspect. But I have seen some interpretations where RaasLeela- the union of all people together when Krishna arrives- is interpreted as sexual union. There are even pictures of Krishna with many women together. Actually, Krishna has a very high consciousness, he is an avatar. So, all the entities, the men, women, children, cows or animals, everybody would like to be in his presence and energy, because his energy is so powerful. People didn’t want to leave. When Krishna is there, everybody likes to be with him. Same was with Jesus as well. Wherever Jesus went, people got attracted. Not because of their knowing who he is, but the energy pulled people like a magnet. Similarly, wherever Krishna went, people, animals, birds, everything got attracted to him. So that is why in many poems, people are crying – when will Krishna come back? This is not a sexual union, it is basically the union of energies, i.e. a unit energy is merging with the ocean, the unlimited energy. So, this is the actual idea of RaasLeela, of everybody coming together , dancing and singing when Krishna comes. So the union of energies is like “we”/ our soul, merging with the supreme soul.
People even talk about Krishna’s 16008 wives. They take it as a licence- Krishna had so many wives, so I can have many as well. I remember one master used to smoke, so he told his disciple, “It’s ok, you smoke, but you will not become me just by smoking.” By imitating the master, he will not become him. He will only become addicted.
Krishna basically killed a particular king who had many prisoners. When Krishna conquered that land, he freed the prisoners: “Go home, you are free now. If you have a problem, come back to me”. So all the prisoners- men, women, children, even those imprisoned for 40-50 years, went back home. W But the religious didn’t receive them, because they were ex-convicts. They didn’t even have food to eat as nobody wanted to welcome them home. So they went back to Krishna and told him: “When we were in the prison, we used to get 3 times food, now we can’t even get 1 time food, but we are free. For what?” Krishna immediately ordered all these women to be given the royal wives’ status. Royal wives means they get some money from the court or the kingdom. When everybody got a house and monthly pension, their status rose in the society and they were accepted. They were all given the status of the royal wives, not that he married everybody. You can’t find such a great administrator ever. You can see the power of all aspects in him- the wisdom, action, speed.
When you operate from a high level of clarity, there is no confusion. Confusion always lies in the lower aspects of our existence. For example, when we are operating from the mind level, should we do this or should we not? We always go up and down. It consumes a lot of energy and has a bad effect. And our dependence on external factors for our satisfaction can also change and affect us a lot. This effect isn’t due to our incapability but because we are pulled down by our dependence on other situations, people or objects.

Meditation Insights

Mohanji gives insights on experiences during meditation
Satsang at The Attic, Connaught Place, New Delhi on 20th August, 2011
Mohanji org 1100 FBQ: In the age of Internet, we tend to look at various things and we follow that for a while, and then move from it. But isn’t it true that it is the faith and not the medium that matters most. Because there have been cases – for example, in the case of Lord Buddha where even he, after the entire stage of meditation, hadn’t found anything. Yet the moment he felt he hadn’t found anything, he found everything. So I believe there are cosmic energies in this world. Positive energies are drawn towards positive emotions and positive faith. Shouldn’t that happen, or should we define what the right medium is for us? Or should we just have the right faith?
A: I have understood your question. Whatever we do or whatever we think has limitations. Whatever happens has no limitations, i.e., certain things happen to us – we take birth. From birth till death, we have brought sufficient money to complete the journey, i.e., we have defined our birth and death before we were born. Each person has defined himself in that way.
Now, your question was about the consciousness that moves you, right? If the consciousness that moves you is in an unlimited plane, there cannot be any emotions, nor can there be any detours. You will be walking a straight path till the destination, and you would have the corresponding experiences. But what happens is that we get influenced during the journey and we decide to take detours. This may not suit the original agenda of your birth. That is when conflicts happen, disappointments happen and expectations are formed upon detours.
Can you segment your question and ask so it’s easy for me to answer? This is quite interesting for me.

Q: First segment – Isn’t it the faith of following a path, rather than the medium that matters most?
A: Faith is the key; faith moves mountains. So when you have firm faith, like faith in Shirdi Sai Baba, no harm can reach you, because the faith itself protects you. Then you can be one hundred per cent sure that you will never fall, depending on the intensity of the faith. Guaranteed!

Q: Second segment – What is that stage when one says I have to take a U-turn? Because, I forget the name of this rishi who meditated for a long time, he practiced the Gayatri Mantra so that he could meet Devi. And just when he thought that it had all gone to waste, he took sannyas. The moment he took sannyas, Devi appeared and asked him what he wanted. He said “Look, I don’t need anything now.”
A: Basically when you do something with an expectation, and even if you do it for a purpose, usually what happens is that the intensity may be less at some point in time. Or through doing, you have very very weak limitations. We feel that through our doing, we can achieve a lot, which is not true. By being, you can achieve much more. Beingness is intangible, doingness is tangible. That is why by doing, we are often adding another habit to our system which becomes a burden in the end. Once you drop this burden, you see light. So what was preventing us from seeing the light? – The action. It’s like a feverish action because it’s like “I want to see, I want to see, I want to see”. Finally, what happens, is that you see nothing.
So in Buddha’s state, he says that he was meditating and meditating and nothing was happening. And then he dropped everything. See, you can take your kundalini through sadhana (spiritual practice) up to the third eye. Or up to the throat chakra, then the kechari mudra to the third eye. But from the third eye to the crown chakra, how do you take the kundalini up? It has to happen – eligibility is the factor. So when Buddha dropped everything, he felt the leaf falling from the tree through his consciousness. And he felt every movement of the leaf. So that is full awareness, 360 degrees. Where you don’t exist, you are one with the whole world. A leaf should fall through you, it cannot fall outside of you. Because you are omnipresent. The moment you feel the leaf is falling outside of you, you have not dropped your body consciousness, that’s lost. The bird was singing within you, not outside of you. Likewise everything falls in place, and complete annihilation of the unit happens. Then you are merged with the one consciousness.
How does that happen? Beingness. You can do any sadhana you like, because you like to taste it, or test it. But it is not taking you anywhere. That is why I said that in the spiritual supermarket, there are hundreds of sadhanas prescribed, whether tantric, or yogic or whatever. But you do that for personal satisfaction and not enlightenment.
Enlightenment happens only through beingness. When you drop everything and be with yourself. To achieve that, you need detachment, even from whatever you do. This is the reason why sometimes doingness can’t take you further. But you wouldn’t know unless you do a lot and it’s not happening. But you would have spent a lot of time. So what is the detour? The detour is basically your understanding that this is not going anywhere. I have had enough of it, drop it. The moment you drop it, everything falls in place. Then you no longer have any binding.
Helplessness is the other side of ego. If ego is on one side of the coin, helplessness is on the other side. That is why God gives us situations where we are helpless. Then we surrender, so there’s no ego. That is the sign of why we prostrate at the feet of God. Head and heart are in the same line and there’s no ego. When ego is nullified, grace flows. Likewise for purity. Satkarma – do good things, then purity automatically develops within you. And then automatically you get lifted. And then you won’t want to do anything, or say anything. There’s nothing to express. You feel that you are fine as you are. You were always fine, but something, i.e., your mind, was telling you that you were not fine. Now however, the mind can no longer talk.
Now I’ll give you a very simple practice. If you can follow this, in a year’s time, you’ll see the progress. First of all, whatever binds you – even this meditation if it binds you – drop it. If words are binding you, drop it. If you feel that you are getting addicted to it, drop it. Your soul’s purpose is complete liberation as soon as possible; its interest is in getting back home as early as it can.
So, imagine a cricket ground. There is one door and everyone is rushing in, elbowing and trying to get in. Our thoughts are like that, trying to elbow their way into our mind to express themselves. Just like a policeman watching the crowd. He’s not interfering or doing anything, he’s just watching the crowd. What happens? Automatically people will start forming a queue and the rush stops. People know that he could be dangerous, so out of fear or out of awareness, the queue forms and it’s orderly. Slowly, slowly, continue to watch your thoughts – first you watch for 5 minutes a day, next 10 minutes a day and then after 10-15 days, make it 15 minutes a day. You are only watching, not doing anything. Then the thoughts will start segregating. Right now we are terribly worried about the space where there is no activity. However, you will start loving that space after some time.
Now why we are in a hurry to go around and fill our space up? Because we are worried about the vacuum, the empty spaces within our mind. And mind stops existing if there are a lot of empty spaces. But why should mind be there? So we will start falling in love with that empty space, and that space expands further and further. If it goes further and further, mind itself dissolves. Then karma dissolves – there is no karma to express through the mind. Then what happens – shanti, complete peace. This is possible, just by watching, just by being a witness.

Q: This is my first session. For the last couple of months, I have been attending, but not on a regular basis. I was not at all a firm believer of meditation. I used to laugh when people went for it. My friends are sitting here only, and they forced me to give it a try once. In my first experience, I felt a very strange thing that has never happened to me before. I felt that I got connected with my father, with the divine light of my father who passed away two years ago. I felt that the soul of my father entered my body, the top of my skull actually – I felt that it was vibrating vigorously and then it went away. Now after that, whenever I do meditation, I do it in anticipation that I will surely get the same connection. But the same thing has never happened again. And in the middle of the meditation, I feel very restless and uncomfortable. So many thoughts keep hovering in my mind that I lost my father very early, when I was just a small kid. And I could not perform the duties which I should have done for my father. So this makes me very uncomfortable and very restless. I request you to guide me.
A: The first was true. He actually conveyed this to you. You reached a level of vibration where he could actually convey a message, which was not possible in the normal run because we are in a mode of activity and thoughts where no messages of a subtle nature can reach you.
Now, you can’t go back to the past and reverse anything. What you could possibly do to still express gratitude and honour your father is the pitru-karmas, shraadh rite. If you do that, that automatically elevates the soul. When we cry for a departed one, it pulls the soul back, which is not good. This is because it has its own agenda and you are preventing that. However the moment you start expressing through shraadh, that I am happy with you and thank you very much, I couldn’t do much for you but this is the best I can do for you now, that would be gratefully accepted in the other realm. And definitely it happens. There are amazing results. I don’t have time to explain, but some people have conveyed amazing results by just performing the shraadh rite, which I had guided them to do. This connectivity is important. That way, you will evolve and he will evolve. But he conveyed his message.
When you express yourself in the form of an entity, such as a body, residue remains. And the residue has a power to convey. So you have got the message and this is the right message. He blesses you and loves you. You could convey back the same through the shraadh. Then you will see the grace flowing in your life. That is why I make it extremely important for taking blessings in this communion, first from the parents. Matha – Pitha – Guru – Deivam. Mother – Father – Teacher – God. Then everywhere you are patching up, and grace flows abundantly. Conflicts dissolve. Otherwise we always have regrets, guilt, we have fears and these things prevent our progress.
And do not expect the same result twice, because that will not happen. Like, if I tell you, on the 20th, at 10am, come for the meditation. Next week, I cannot tell you the same thing because it’s another date, another situation. So we are moving as per a time-space juncture. At a particular time, a particular event happens to a particular person. We are moving according to that and we cannot change that. Tomorrow, or in the next moment, it may not be the same. The same person may not experience the same thing, so life has to continue like that.
Yes, it was a real connection. That is why I said that you should own your experiences. In this meditation, whatever experience you have is real. I’ll give you an example to clarify this point further. One person who has never meditated before came to the meditation. His father had died when he was 11 years old. Now he’s 38. And ever since, he had never been able to find the documents of his property. They had searched everywhere and couldn’t find them. So he and his relatives could not even partition the property. In the meditation, his parents came, blessed him and told him “We are very happy with you. You are a very pure son of ours. By the way, you have been looking for this document; search in this particular place and you’ll find it.” And they found it. Sometimes tangible results happen. You have to own it. Understand that it is real. Otherwise you cannot progress further. Mind will always say – you are imagining. You have to differentiate between imagination and reality.

Q: Sometimes other people come back with comments. I have shared a lot of my experiences in my articles and I have a lot of brickbats coming back to me.
A: That is because another person cannot understand your constitution or consciousness. What you experience is completely personal or different than another person’s. Whatever you’ve experienced in your life so far is your personal experience. It’s not the same for another person. If somebody else cannot see, it only shows that person’s level of consciousness – it could be higher or it could be lower. So do not expect another person to understand you. But if you write it down, it will tell you where you are travelling. That is why I recommend writing down your experiences. Once you are confident about saying that you experienced it, conviction happens. Conviction leads to faith; that will automatically take you higher. Once there is faith, every door opens. If there is lack of faith, nothing happens. Others may feel that your experience is imagination, good enough. That is not your concern. We talk about other people; that is not at all required. Likewise, we are always concerned about what other people say about us. That is also nonsense because they can say anything. So if we can avoid these two things, life becomes easier.

Meditacija Moć čistote u Novom Sadu 3c chin mudraQ: Many times, I feel that God wants to convey some message to me, but I am not able to understand. And I feel restless many times. Initially, when I used to come to the meditation two years ago, I sometimes dreamed of Lord Shiva and it was a very uncomfortable kind of thing. And after coming to meditation, I had a very similar dream of Lord Shiva. And during meditation, I felt some discomfort. There was a time when I felt a divine light and like a current through my body. That really scared me, and then I left meditations and all other things. Then I again started this and felt that life has become soothing again. But I am often scared of meditations when I am alone.
A: The more you can move to your spine, the more your fears will disappear. Fears are all in the emotion and mind plane. With consistency and faith, you will automatically shift to the spine. Whatever the impression, whether it is a good feeling or bad, continue with it. And walk the path. As I always say, do not try to walk north first, then east, then west and so on. Keep walking to whatever destination you have set, till the end of the road. It doesn’t matter which guru you follow, as all gurus are the same, or which path you follow. That consistency will erase the bad effects. Once the clarity increases, the awareness increases, you will see everything more clearly. It’s like climbing up a hill – from down below, it seems like a very high hill and very difficult to climb. But when you reach the top, you see everything very clearly. So like that, you keep climbing. Once you start walking the steps, you will be fully protected, one hundred per cent guaranteed, and guidance will come to you. If a message from a higher consciousness has to reach you, they will make sure they reach you. And if something is not coming to you at a particular time, you do not need it then. If it had to come to you at that particular time, it would have come.
Your experiences all exist within your consciousness. They come out at an appropriate time. When you are ready for it, it will come to you. If you put a seed in the soil during the summer and don’t water it, it will not germinate. Maybe the seed will stay dormant though and come out when the rains come. Like that, in a particular environment and at a particular time, things will happen for you. But you should not hang on or cling on to any of these impressions. Keep moving, and do it in a consistent way so that automatically things start clearing. Faith is very important – whichever God you believe, have full faith in him. And that itself will eradicate all issues.

Q: What does the stiffness of spine signify during the meditation?
A: Actually, the activity is happening through the spine and it can create an effect that suits your constitution. So when the spine is stiff, it means some movement has happened. Some energy has shifted and it has created the effect of stiffness. It will go back to normalcy once this leaves completely. For some people, it was perspiration in that area. For some, it was heat. That is their constitution. But the bottom line is that it had an effect.

Entities

Q: When does the soul enter the body?
M: I would say the soul is inside when the first part-the spine- is born. fetusSo, I would say that the soul enters as soon as it can come in, but many people say third month. I would say much earlier, because by the time the body is being prepared, there is a soul element active already.
The soul doesn’t simply enter, it’s like a slow transfer. Of course, the soul enters through the top of the head and all the way, but gradually with time. Like a cloud.
Or like you pay some advance and then you pay the whole amount later haha .
This is also why I am completely against aborting children; it’s very cruel. Secondly, if somebody does something like that – to get out of the effect of the tragedy takes lifetimes.
Q: Unless you do service to children.
M: Yes, but that is not an excuse, you know? The karmic debt is very heavy.

Entities

Sometimes if the entities have occupied a land for a long time, only the physical body leaves after death. Sometimes the constitution and the soul aspect cannot leave.
Q: Why do they remain? Why don’t they go into the white light?
A: When the ownership is not changed, it implies that they are occupying a land. The new owner in physical body is staying along but the entities don’t agree. The entities are harmless, they are actually good. Don’t think they are bad, or they want to harm you- in most cases, that’s not true.
For example if we go home and somebody else is staying there, and then we are not really accepted, we feel bad and lost. So, the tantric way of ridding them is to bind them into some object and keep them. If there is an activity in any house and tantrics are brought – they bring them to one object and bind them. I do not agree with that because- if you can liberate them- liberate them!
Why do they stay here? Basically, if any being, whether human or animal, dies with a feeling of victimhood or binding, it stays on and doesn’t go.
Q: What about entities that are not human bodies?
A: That I will tell, otherwise this will be incomplete.
Usually, for 80% of the people on death, the last breath and soul leaves through the mouth. In other words, a natural death. fontanelle - soft-spotBut the soul entered the body through the top of the head. This is why the top of the head of newborn babies is very soft. So the soul entered through this opening, travelled through the middle of the body and spread to every organ. Hence the kundalini energy is supposed to be between the direct top of the head and the direct bottom of the space between the scrotum (or vagina for women) and anus. This is the constitution of human beings.
So, the whole idea about spirituality is to take the soul back through the top of the head. Hence every exercise – kriya yoga and all the yoga paths, teach how to bring the soul back to top of the head at the time of death and go out. To leave in this liberated manner, you need to be liberated while living.
If the soul exits through the mouth, you can guarantee there will be a rebirth. But if the soul exits through the top of the head, usually the karmas pressure will not be there. That means you have exhausted everything, and you are taking it back and going out. This is why in spirituality, how you are is more important than where you are.
So, if you are very stable spiritually and you are breathing through the top of the head and through the spine most of the time, there is no need to go anywhere. You are already in tune with the universe, and when you leave, you are actually leaving all the way back.
But if the consciousness is on earth plane- if you are bound by objects, people, situations, events, emotions- then this cannot happen. The last strongest emotion while leaving the body is very important for the next life, or the journey ahead. Hence in old times, the grandmothers tell the grandchildren “Before you go to bed, you surrender yourself to the God, you are sleeping in His lap.” This is training the child to connect to god every time, because there is a state of death in every sleep. Deep sleep state is equal to state of death- complete nullification. Every person goes through this process every night. So it’s important to connect to god in that plane, while living, so that when you leave- you can leave in the the right path. Two types of entities stay back, confused entities and crippled entities.

The confused entities

The confused entities are stuck with earthly things- the emotions, people, events, situations. They carry victimhood, injustice, thoughts of injustice- all these kinds of things; and they are confused.

The crippled entities

The crippled souls are the souls which die due to murder, suicide or other situations. They didn’t want to die, but they died. In the Auschwitz or the Pol Pot’s regime, people were tortured and killed, with the feeling of victimhood while dying. On the other hand, every day there are numerous animals being bound and killed. Their soul also exits in a hurry from the body, because it’s not a natural death.
Any unnatural death always makes the soul leave the body in a hurry. And it cannot even leave through the mouth; it leaves through the anus or the nine holes on the lower part of the body. So those souls are still hanging around. Those with psychic ability see that when an animal is slaughtered, multiple souls go out of the body, not just one soul. Because these souls on death enter into any body possible. They stay along because they don’t know what to do. They do not have the process of going through the cycle and coming into the womb and taking birth. They enter into whatever possible, any body possible. Including other animals. It’s like the pilot suddenly ejects himself because the plane is crashing- the soul is ejected out from the body and not in the normal way. So these souls are mostly the crippled.
Crippled souls are very very weak souls, because they have no energy to even create another body. That is why they enter into any body possible and they just throw them around. But again, as I said, they are all helpless and not harmful. And in the presence of higher masters- who are connected to the source- many get redeemed and sent up into the white light. Even a picture of a master is good enough, because it represents the form of the person who is connected.

original-living-entities-existed-in-such-a-hot-sp

Sometimes if the entities have occupied a land for a long time, only the physical body leaves after death. Sometimes the constitution and the soul aspect cannot leave.

Positive vs. negative entities

Likewise, the confused souls, can be seen roaming around with people. They have possessiveness; they have almost every emotion that we entertain. These are the ones who try to play around a bit. But when they understand they can’t play, they are very decent haha. Especially if you talk straight, saying “Don’t play, we will deal with this” and then they are fine.
Always, whenever there is a positive, there is a negative- there are entities of negative nature. They are as powerful as the positive. They are children of the same god. But by nature they are negative. The difference is: the positive always liberates you, keeps you liberated; the negative always binds you, keeps you bound. The clear influence in spiritual path we can see: somebody who follows a powerful master for a long time suddenly twists his/her mind and goes into a completely different path. This is a clear sign of influence of the negative. They try to tease you all the time, but if the hook falls, then you are pulled. But many people who are deeply connected to a master will never budge, they will never fall. But the moment you are weak – that is the moment the hook falls, you are hooked. This is why the deep connectivity to the consciousness of the master of the white path is essential to stay tuned. If that connectivity is maintained, nothing can enter you or your household. There are even negative entities who talk great spirituality but understand that they are binding, because they put fear. Any path which puts fear in you is reasonably of the negative nature. But any path which liberates you of fears is of positive nature. This is a clear sign you can follow.
And usually the negative entities play from the back side, they don’t come up front. They can’t attack directly. I like direct fight. They know they can’t do anything. So they pass by and try to stab my heart. But they could not. Then I threw everybody out from the whole region. Because, see, if they want to attack you, they will attack the people who are very close to you. I always used to tell Biba “When you are in my house don’t worry, nothing will touch you, but when you do not follow what I say then you are vulnerable.”
But in the white path, in the path of the truth, you cannot bind anybody, so you cannot insist that you should follow what I say, you can only suggest. The other path is binding; they insist you should follow, so there is a huge difference here. I never say “You should follow me”.
So, the positive and the negative represent the duality. People who get ritualistic are immediately hooked by the negative ones.

These are all various aspects. It is very difficult to discuss or explain the planes of operation, because what you could normally see is a body and a few words, but that doesn’t explain the consciousness.

I always tell those who are connected to me – connect to my eyes when you wake up in the morning and when you go to bed, and if you are keeping a picture of mine keep it facing east. These are the two things I normally say, which are found very effective.

Protection

So, how you protect yourself is very simple: connect to a higher consciousness, it can be Jesus, Krishna or any entity who is established or well connected or well represented from the white path; then usually no one can touch you. Many people cannot connect to a living master, because there is a personality to handle. They can easily connect to a master who lived before. It doesn’t matter, as long as you connect to a higher master, whether in the body or not in the body. Once you are connected, it is his responsibility. Also it is said in the scriptures- If a person chants Gayatri mantra for example, he cannot be eaten by vampires. It’s a proverb but there is a deeper meaning in it. A person chanting a mantra increases his vibratory level to a great height and then in that vibratory level, no normal entity can reach him or touch him.
I always tell those who are connected to me – connect to my eyes when you wake up in the morning and when you go to bed, and if you are keeping a picture of mine keep it facing east. These are the two things I normally say, which are found very effective. But the point is, whatever is outside will exist anyway, i.e, the situation remains the same. You have to protect yourself. And protection should be with clarity.
If there is a problem with the form, you can follow any person, but be clear about the white path. The gurus will have no expectations and will never bind you. They will always keep you liberated. It is your choice whether to connect or not. This is the white path. In the white path, the free will is always respected. In the dark path, there is no free will; there is binding. But many people who are of tamasic nature, they like the dark path because they don’t have to take any decisions. No responsibilities. “It’s in the book” or “Guru says – do this”; there is no more thinking, no more talking. The worst I have found in the spiritual path are the ones who use certain things to bind people- catch the consciousness and hold it. There are certain paths like that. And I always feel what they are doing; because if I bind you I’m also bound. I can’t leave. So why would people trap themselves, I always fail to understand. But there are people, terrestrial and insecure. They want money or power or something else, so they collect people, bind them and keep them, but they are also bound. They don’t understand that, you know?

It is important to stay clear from the influences, while alive. It’s very simple, we need to say “no” to many things, that is: a guru may look exotic, with all the correct signs which we have in mind, but which path he is following is very important. The moment they start binding you- you should leave, escape, it’s important. Always stay liberated, this is very important.
Q: If you have one, how do you liberate yourself from this astral connection?
A: Astral connection is not a problem, because that is your homeland.

Q: What if you have a spirit in…?
A: In that case, if you deeply connect to a master in the white path and also chant certain mantras, they will disappear 80% of the time. Even Baba, Jesus, Krishna, any entity you can connect, living or not living that’s not a problem, but then chant the mantra intensely, so that it becomes too hot inside for them to stay .

Q: Suppose the person is reasonably cleansed, on the right spiritual path and unhooked from unnecessary clogging, traps etc. What if other people keep hooking onto him/her? Can that person be pulled down again?
A: Well, it’s your choice; it’s up to you. You can still stay immune as well as help other people. The level of entanglement is your choice. How deep you should get involved- this is your choice. I always suggest do your best and get out of the place. I always tell the same to healers and doctors: You do your best, but the cure is not up to you.Healing is not up to you; this has to happen. Keep your conscience clear and always work on the level of purity, so that you are immune and nothing can happen to you. But if you keep entertaining the injustice aspect or a victim aspect: “Why did this happen to this person?”, “Oh poor man!”- that kind of over-emotionalization attracts that emotion into you. Or that situation or its essence comes to you. So it is important to deliver what you can and go away. That way, you can be free and the other person is also free and liberated.

Basing in the Spine

Satsang with Mohanji in Cape town, September 2013

You may have observed, in the last couple of years at least, that time has become very fast, absolute speed. This is a very interesting time. It’s actually a blessing to be alive in today’s time. This is mainly because one year of our current time is almost like fifty years about a century ago. That is the phase we have come to. The speed has increased. To be alive at this time is very important. And if you are alive with awareness while you are here, this is even more important. Many of us do not know what the importance of this time is while we are here.

Feel the Earth with awareness. It is a blessing to be alive in this time. Be one with the universe.

Feel the Earth with awareness. It is a blessing to be alive in this time. It takes you to complete dissolution, complete oneness with the universe.

Many of you have heard about the shift that happened in 2012. What has happened during this time, basically it started in 1986 according to me, is that this momentum started increasing. According to me, the transition of time happened approximately in 1986. You can’t really say ’on this date’. Likewise you can’t say that the shift happened on 21st December 2012. I would call these landmarks or milestones, something you can feel or be tangible about in time. We have milestones on the road because we need to know how far we have travelled. It’s similar. So we keep certain dates in mind so we can say,“Ok we have arrived here, now we can take the next step. We are moving forward.“ However, most importantly it’s not the milestone that matters, it’s awareness that matters,“Oh, I have reached here, this is my destination and this is the distance.“ Time started speeding up and bodies that move with time like ours have no choice. We do not have a choice. Body is evolving, body is moving forward with time. Time takes us and the advantage is if you are moving with awareness with time, the speed is like that. It takes you to complete dissolution, complete oneness with the universe. So the shift is for sure and the advantage of our time is that is as I said earlier, one year is almost like fifty years before 1986. We have started moving forward increasingly. The disadvantage is that if we are not aware of our time, we will not be stable. We will always be entertaining anxieties, fears and instability. Stability happens when you know,“Yes, this is the speed, I am moving with the speed and the destination is total dissolution. Being one with the universe. There is nothing in between.“ If we move forward with this awareness, it’s a very good idea. That is why this meditation is about unhooking. If you do not unhook yourself from the past, past places, people, situations, time, locations, and you are not free, your mind is not moving with your body with time, and it is not easy. Because part of our consciousness lies in the past, part of it is in the present, so there will be some conflict in our daily life. This is one point. Please remember that.

360° Awareness

Completeness

The second point is about why we insist on 360 degrees, if you follow this meditation (you can download it from http://www.mohanji.org free of cost, I do it as a service). Why 360 degrees? Usually every human being operates in 120 degrees, in front of the face. This is not enough for full awareness. This is enough to just operate in daily life. Because all our senses are in the front, our mind goes out with the senses to the front. When mind is with the eyes, we see. Otherwise we just look, we don’t see. When mind is with the tongue, we taste. Otherwise, if we watch TV while eating, we will have no idea what we are eating and we will not know the taste. If mind is with the ear, we listen. So mind has a major role to play and we have five senses to know the world. What is the world? We taste it, we feel it, we touch it, we hear it, we smell it. This is what we do. So with the eyes, with the nose, with the ears, with the tongue, with the skin, we feel the world. Everything is in the front. We are front-oriented. All beings are front-oriented. What about the 240 degrees behind us? This is important. Until that is connected you are never complete. I am sure each one of you has felt some level of incompleteness at some point in time. This is not the real you. Who am I? Everybody has asked this question. I am not what I seem to be. I must be more than this. The answer is in completion. Completion means when you took the first birth ever on this plane, you came with full awareness. You came to experience the world. And to experience this world, you need the support of the elements such as earth, air, water, space, fire. This is what we call the body, a mixture of all these. When we leave the body, it goes back to nature. So we are picking the body from nature to experience the world, and we dissolve the body, and we go further. This must be the original idea. We came here to feel the Earth. But if you look at the Earth, what is the main thing that we experience here? Of course we can easily say relativity. Relativity created the birth wherever you are. Relativity created duality. Or relativity created realities in any plane, but here on Earth the main thing is relationship. We are here to experience relationships in relation to something that we are. You are apart from me because in relation to where I am sitting you are sitting elsewhere. So we started experiencing relativity in various dimensions such as father, mother, brother, sister, children, boss, enemies, friends, whatever. All the relations. This is why we came here. But then our operating tool was the mind. You needed the mind to feel all this. Mind gave you identifications. Mind told you this is you, you are this name, you are this qualification, you are this form, this tradition, this family, like this we became more and more compartmentalised or in other words put in frames. We have framed ourselves. We don’t have any frames. But because we have a body, because we have identifications, we started feeling the frames and mind produced ego, ego says,“ This is what you are, you are the qualifications, you are the money, you are the position, you are the purchasing power and all this.“ Then we lost track, we got entangled in this. That is when we missed the other 240 degrees. But it is available. It is always available, you can get it any time you want. You can tap into it any time you want. Please understand awareness is almost like your shadow, always ready for you to tap into. But we don’t know that it’s following us! We do not look at our shadow. We do not even remember that there is a shadow. We don’t tap into it because we get caught up in daily life. Once this is conglomerated, we are complete again. That is why basing on the spine is important. We have to shift from the front to the middle. Anxieties, fears and all these things that come into us make us vulnerable, incapacitated, disabled, only when you operate from the front. The same things cannot touch you when you are based in the spine. Try it, you will know.

I will give you another example. When you sit down quietly, just close your eyes and feel the spine. Automatically your consciousness, your awareness will shift to the third eye, the space between the eyebrows. This is the proof. We are going beyond the normal senses to the higher dimension. Third eye is the higher dimension, it is the pathway to the higher dimension. We have that faculty within us. We don’t need any religion, any guru, any guide or anybody to tell us this because we are complete. This is the truth. All are complete. Gurus and masters are road signs, they just tell you go this way, this is the destination. It is up to you to walk. This is an individual journey, because we are individuals, we are born alone, we will die alone, and we are experiencing various aspects of relationships while we are here.

Mohanji quote - Anxieties and fears cannot touch you when

Coming back to time. The shift has happened, time has become faster, speed has increased, being in the present is the right thing to do now. If you are not in the present, the tilting times, the shifting times can pull you down. This is one aspect.

The second aspect is that one year now of your concentrated effort is almost like fifty years of your concentrated effort pre-1986. So this time is very important, you are growing faster. Now you can see another dimension. What has happened after 2012? Just look. Whatever the basic nature of every being is, there are seven billion people in the world, each person is a unique creation, nobody is a factory product, everybody is unique, nobody can be compared with another. This is the beauty of creation. Not only human beings, all beings. All are unique. So, whatever our basic nature has been, it got enhanced. It just got boosted up. A person who is by nature compassionate, became more compassionate and started expressing it. A person who is by nature angry, becomes more angry and starts expressing it. A person who is generous by nature becomes more generous and starts expressing it. But we are all a mixture. We are never one aspect only. So various aspects have come forward and started expressing. This is what we see in the world today. And this will be seen more in the days to come.

We shift from one yuga to another. We call it yugas in the Indian tradition, there are years with a particular taste, smell and touch, or flavour. Each yuga has a different flavour. So we have gone through various yugas and we are supposed to be in Kali yuga. Kali yuga is a yuga of speed and activity and also extreme representations of duality like good and bad, or as you can see in fiction films a villain and a hero. This aspect is enhanced at this time. Every time has had it, but this time it is much more the dimensions and the diversions. This time the war between good and bad is much more i.e. the kind and the cruel. You can see this aspect much more in this life time or let’s say in ten years, from 2012 to 2022. And from 2022 onwards it is said to be the birth of Sathya yuga, the yuga of truth. That is what we are being prepared for. Most of the great masters who are still operating in this plane, are working only on this now. Please be aware. That is why their consciousness is also available. We are using various methods to reach them. Each person has a style and method to reach them. That is also fine. As I said, it is not what you believe in, nor what your religion is, what your path is, or who your guru is. It is not important. It is important that you are aware that it is truth which you are seeking. The consciousness that Jesus, Buddha, Krishna represented, that is the path of the truth. In earlier times, we crucified whoever told the truth. Because we’ve never liked the truth. We liked to live on pretensions and lies. We always liked relative truths, not real truths. Jesus all his life spoke only truth. He always walked the path of purity. Why did we assasinate him? Because we didn’t like truth. If you look at our history, you can see, Socrates spoke the truth. We gave him poison. All the masters, all the great souls who came here out of compassion to guide the world to a better understanding, better awareness, were assasinated as fast as possible. Then we put the picture on the wall and say this was a great man. There are advantages to it. First we disposed of him. Second, we can interpret his teachings the way we like. This helps us. How? We create our own religions. And we can always say,“This is not me, I didn’t say this, he said that.“ Anyway he is not here to kick your butt. (laughter) We are very funny people.

Anyway, the time of truth is enhanced and you can see this happening. Don’t just believe what I say, feel it, you will know what I am saying. I am just giving you an outline. But this is an individual journey. Since it is an individual journey, it is your responsibility to explore for yourself, not explore anything outside of you. Because truth lies within you and truth can only be reached inside. Outside it’s all relative truths. You are separate from me because I am separate from you, but consciousness-wise we are one. We cannot have a separation. Soul-wise we are related, we can’t have separation.

The_Spiritual_MastersElectricity is the same. It sometimes goes through a washing machine, it washes clothes. Because it goes through a dish-washer, it washes the dishes. It goes through a refrigerator, cools things. So electricity is never different, but the utensil is different. The operating tools are different. Likewise your body is different, my body is different. It’s the same, their aspects are the same, both are made of elements, and soul-wise you and I are one. This is the fundamental understanding we must have as we go further in the path of spirituality. Once you are clear that we are one, there will be no difference in this. Whatever is in the universe, it’s an expression of ourselves. There’s nothing apart from us. From 2012 to 2022, first is the initial phase. We are actually going through the initial phase in the last few years until 2016 and there will be much more negativity than positivity. It is always like that. If you look at the history, negative wins first, negative comes and gets written first, then eventually positivity comes forward. Coming back to Jesus’s life, just imagine, if Jesus accepted all that people wanted him to accept, do you think there would be Christianity today? Nobody would remember him. His power was his staying with truth, uncompromising. No conformity. And his dramatic exit, there are many theories which say that he lived after he left the cross. One person from Europe asked me the same question. I said,“Are you bothered about that!? Why don’t you just follow the teachings? It doesn’t matter.“ Like, if I die tomorrow, or if I leave everything and go tomorrow, my only relevance is today. Because if I live a life as a hermit in the caves of the Himalayas, how does it matter to you? As long as I am providing to the world, as long as I am catering to the world, as long as I am talking, that is the only time when there is the relevance. So relevance is when you are acting and contributing. There are members of our family who left the family, who passed away, we love them, no problem, but are they relevant in our daily life? No, because they have completed the task and they moved on. Similarly, Jesus’s main contributions were all when he was talking, when he was moving, when he was performing. After that, whether he lived or whether he didn’t live, this is not our concern today. See, we are more worried about the history than about the teachings/message! Masters - by Mohanjis Devotee Sabrina Koletic

We should be focusing on the message! I always say, don’t marry the guru, marry the teachings. Gurus can be quite erratic. It is important to know that it is truth which we are looking for. The reality is that what we are looking for, is not the person. The person is a representation. Person represents the ultimate truth so he delivers. So, the victory of the negative will always happen first, as we saw in the feature films the villain makes all sorts of problems in the beginning, then the hero comes back and destroys him, ha, ha. Likewise, Jesus was assasinated, but today people all over the world worship him. The same with all the great masters. We do not accept or worship them today because often a person who is contemporary is not accepted. Again, it’s because we have to handle the personality. The person and the personality are difficult to handle. The message is easier to handle. Because we have the picture in the mind, we add that picture to the person who does not exist, it’s easy to understand. So we are actually following the mental image rather thatn the whole person with the personality. When you have to handle a real person and the personality, it is not easy. Just imagine, do you have a high picture of a guru or a master, glorified image, and somebody tells you,“ Hey, he goes to the toilet every day.“ My, god! Finished. (Laughter) Because we can’t accept such realities. We expect the person not to go to the toilet, not to eat, ha, ha, he should be like this. This is our problem, we created the image. We put the person in the frame, now if the person is beyond the frame, we reject the person. This is human nature. We must be aware of it. So, it is important to know that eventually truth has to win. Because truth cannot be hidden for long. It’s like the waves of the ocean. When the waves are hitting more and more, we will not know what the peace within the ocean is. Yet, sometimes when the ocean is calm, we understand that it’s very peaceful. We are that peace. That is why operating in 360-degree-awareness is important to move forward and being in the present is very important. We are living in an interesting time, excellent time, and this is my message to the world: Be yourself. This is your individual journey. And I always ask people to carry two things with them. One is faith. Believe in any religion, believe in any master, believe in any god, but be 100% in it, not partially. Because you can only wear the shirt that suits you. You can only wear the dress that suits you. Even if I say, this is not good, this is not bad, this is good, this is bad, I am lying. Everything is relative in the world outside, but the truth is one within you. We are living in a relative world, it’s all in relation, as I said. Whatever you see outside is relative. It is not permanently morning. There will be night coming up. And it cannot be permanently night, it can be morning sooner or later. This is the way the world goes. Relative truths are fine provided you know this is relative. Otherwise if we start believing in it, we’ll have a problem. Why? Expectation builds up. We build up expectation and expectation always brings suffering, sorrow. Expectation leads to sorrow. Dependency leads to sorrow. We say,“I expect this person to behave with me in this way, oh, he behaved differently. I don’t like him any more.“ Relationships are finished. This is how fragile we are. But if we allow the person to be oneself for oneself, this is their expression, this is their life, too. This person has come to the Earth to experience whatever they are experiencing and we just allow them to be themselves. We are peaceful, others are peaceful. This is the way existence will be further for the birth of Sathya yuga. I assume this is my mental calculation, my mental awareness, that post 2022 Sathya yuga takes birth, the yuga of truth, the yuga of happiness, perpetual bliss, within which you can probably see a lot of destruction, a lot of calamities, as I said, it’s a clash between good and evil, or I would say good and bad are basically cliche words because so many feature films happened (laughter). I would say it’s between reality and non-reality, or between relative truth and truth. This is probably the better understanding, that we must base ourselves in truth, sooner or later. And as Sathya yuga progresses, like we chose our birth, we will choose our death at will. FontanellesHow will we do that? We will change our breathing pattern from the front to the middle. That means the soul entered through the top of the head. That is why if you look at the top of the head of small children, it’s very soft, that is the way the soul entered the body. The soul will exit through the same space for which breathing will happen through the middle. The pathway through which the soul entered became closed because of our ego, wrong identifications while in the relative world. That will change to real identification of who we are,“Who am I? What am I here for? What is my purpose?“ All these will start hitting. Once we are clear about that, we will automatically know that our breathing pattern has changed and that change will lead to total liberation.

Mohanji’s talk on the Bosnian Pyramids

Meeting with Dr Semir Osmanagic, founder of the Bosnian Pyramids, 30th May 2015

We are almost at the edge of pure unconsciousness. We started from pure consciousness. From pure consciousness to pure unconsciousness, and then the cycle begins again. So we go through a cycle and the pyramids represent pure consciousness. If you consider them as 100% man-made, there could be some error. This is because not all the people who are here are from Earth.
Some have brought the supreme consciousness and they have clear landmarks, clear identifications as well as clear objectives. People have found microchips from millions of years ago in Siberia. Technically, they could not be more than hundred years old. Yet there was a civilisation which used microchips in the past. To demonstrate this, I’ll tell you a short story.

A STORY OF RAM, HANUMANJI AND THE RING

Lord Ram, his wife Sita and his assistant Hanumanji were flying back to India from Shri Lanka after the war. Sita was playing with her ring and it fell down into the ocean waters. Hanumanji dived down into the water to retrieve the ring. However, when he reached the bottom of the sea, he saw many rings there. He returned empty-handed, as you are not supposed to take anything which is not yours. He had not taken anything, and so asked,“Which one should I take?“ Lord Ram said,“On Sita’s ring there is ’Ram’ written on it.“ Hanumanji dived down again, and he found the ring. Upon checking, however, he found that all of the rings had ’Ram’ written on them. He went back to Ram and asked,“What is happening, all the rings have ’Ram’ written on them? Sita only had one ring. How did it multiply?“ Lord Rama replied,“Hanuman, we have been here before. This whole drama has been acted out before, and this is many times later that we are talking. There has been a Hanuman in another era, and we have a repetition of life.“

Nothing has started from here. If we are all together here, then we are related in some way. I am not a technical person, and I cannot say anything about whatever the professor has said. However, I look at it from a spiritual and energetic point of view. All I can say is that his purity of intention and purpose is absolutely beautiful. This is definitely a positive thing, to give something positive to the world. Because, if you look around now, it’s all about greed and control. We are giving something here which elevates your consciousness, your awareness. This is probably the biggest gift you can give to the world.

Yesterday somebody asked me a question and I explained the following. I believe there are pyramids which are receivers and pyramids which are transmitters. I consider most of the Egyptian pyramids as receivers for the land (even though I have never been there, and I’m not sure why I never had any interest to visit Egypt, yet had an interest to come here). So I consider pyramids of this nature as energy sources (I have not been inside. I am talking hypothetically). These pyramids here are transmitting. So the movement is like a fountain or volcano. These ones are visible from outer space. Those beings of higher nature who travel with energy, can see and feel what is going on here using these. And also the energy inside suits their energy. If they want to come here, these are portals of landing. All of us have a frequency and if the frequency doesn’t match, we cannot stay in that place. Beings who are completely selfless, and completely objective, come to such portals to exist or to work, and their intention is pure. They are not coming here to take something. They are here to expand or develop the current era, current space. That’s why when Biba said to come to these pyramids, I said,“Let’s go there.“

I also have a feeling about energy sources such as this one. There are four types of places: very bad, medium, good and very good. This comes into the very good level as far as the energy is concerned. To enter such places, there should be a permission, a call. That is why the professor has said many people have disowned it. Because they cannot enter. When you operate in a gross frequency, you cannot enter a subtle place. It is simple logic. Please think or believe that you have been called. Otherwise neither you nor me would be here now. There is no coincidence. And all you need when you are in such a space is emptiness. Don’t think. Just feel. How you can use this space is very simple. How or who you are, that much you get. If you are absolutely empty, that much you will be filled. If you are already fully filled, there is nothing more to give. So be empty and embrace the energy.

(To Professor Semir Osmanagic) Thank you so much for being you.
