Almost a year and a few months ago, one morning, this thought came to me…”Mohanji is ageless.” Peculiarly, the next morning around 3 am, I woke up (in the Brahma muhurta – the most auspicious period to connect to the self and the Supreme Consciousness) and happened to see a spiritual blog by someone deeply respected by Mohanji. Well, I am not a serious reader as such and don’t look out for blogs to read, but this one had appeared in my notifications. Following the experiences that happened post reading, I realise this was a divine plan for me to come across the blog at that auspicious time.
Well, the blog mentioned about a place named ‘Kataragama’ in Sri Lanka. Reading through the descriptions, I understood that this is the place where Lord Murugan (the son of Shiva, also known as Kartikeya or Subramanya) had reincarnated. This is also the place where one of the most famous amongst all spiritual seekers, ‘Mahavatar Babaji’ was taken into the discipleship by his Master/Guru Bhoganathar. At the age of 16, Guru Bhoganathar taught him the art of ‘Kaya Kalpa’ – which enabled him to remain a youth forever!
Reading this brought a thought in me that “Mohanji is ageless”. The first chord was struck.
The next point that struck yet another cord in my awareness was when I read that after Babaji returned to India, Sage Agastya initiated him to the secrets of the breath, which was followed by the birth of Kriya Yoga. This reminded me of Devi Amma’s (from Bangalore) confirmation of Mohanji being the spiritual son of Sage Agastya and that Mohanji initiates genuine seekers of liberation into Kriya Yoga. A similarity that my naive mind couldn’t ignore as mere coincidence!
Joining these dots gave me the awareness of the oneness of Babaji and Mohanji. Well, why ponder here and there. Let me ask the Master himself, I thought. But Mohanji, as always, never claims himself as an incarnation of any other Master.
He always says,
“I am born as Mohanji, I will die as Mohanji. I am only Mohanji.”
Well, after this naive expectation to hear a confirmation from Mohanji himself, I understood that realising the truth of the oneness of Mohanji and Babaji, is a truth that was meant for my awareness only and will stay as my truth. No justification, no evidence, no approvals, nothing is required. The awareness of this truth is beyond any revelations.
The next morning, I received a WhatsApp message from my friend Preethi Gopalratnam from Mumbai. This was a conversation between her and Mohanji on Kataragama. She had expressed her wish to visit Kataragama with Mohanji! Preethi was an ardent devotee of Mahavatar Babaji and always felt that Babaji had sent Mohanji to her to answer her seeking to experience Babaji in a physical form! This message from Preethi was a silent confirmation from Guru Mandala about what I realised the previous day with Katargama being a critical point of reference. We both spoke later, exchanged our realisations and surrendered our wish to visit Kataragama one day, with Mohanji. That was November 2018.
I had written a blog on this experience which you may find in this link here – “The truth beyond revelations”
