Who is Mohanji

Mohanji describes himself as a friend of the world, as a person trying to raise the awareness of generations from selfishness to selflessness. He has dedicated his life to serving the world with this single purpose – to raise humans to achieve the highest values of human potential such as kindness, compassion and non-violence. Or in other words, make the transition from human-kind to kind humans.
Mohanji firmly believes that humanity is the best religion for humans and the best practice is ahimsa, or non-violence – in thoughts, words or actions towards fellow beings across all species.
In Mohanji’s words, “True wealth comes from what we give to this earth, not from what we take”.
His core teaching is simply “Be You”; accept, understand, recognize and express your uniqueness into the world.

To fulfill his purpose, Mohanji has founded various charities and non-profit organizations that act as platforms for people to express their kindness and compassion through selfless acts that add value to society. These include Mohanji Foundation, Ammucare Charitable Trust, ACT Foundation, Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga, World Consciousness Alliance, Early Birds Club to name a few. Mohanji Foundation is headquartered in Switzerland and today, there are over 17 countries where some or all of these institutions are formally registered while followers are present in over 90 countries.

I am what you consider me to be.

Liberation is the cornerstone of Mohanji’s teachings where he points us at where to look but not what to see. He places great emphasis on liberation from the bindings, concepts and habits of life. He himself practically demonstrates this by leading a life free from the bindings and conditioning of the mind – totally natural, with total acceptance of life as it comes without resistance, irrespective of people, time, space, situations or concepts.
“True mastery is the mastery of one’s own mind.” says Mohanji, who maintains that spirituality is expressed in the awareness with which we live and experience our daily lives. He advocates the path of Pathlessness where the spontaneity and flow is all there is; being totally yourself!
He believes in romancing life, approaching every situation in life with wonder and curiosity of a new-born child without preconceptions or judgments.

When we see God in every being, we can only have romance in our hearts because we romance God through every being.

Key Pillars of Mohanji's philosophy

He emphasizes purity, faith, unconditional love and selfless service towards fellow beings of all species, as the foundation and pillars of a balanced human existence. He considers the prayer of gratitude as the highest prayer that increases inner richness and attracts both grace and abundance.
His morning prayer is, “Thank you for letting me serve one more day in the world” which is followed by a question to himself, “What more can I do for the world today?” He encourages everyone to do likewise and constantly assess the worth of their existence on earth by the value they have added to the world, within their capacity and scope of influence.

Spirituality is a lifestyle

Being a family man and a former corporate professional, Mohanji believes that spirituality is a part of every aspect of one’s life, proving it with the example of his own life.
He plays all the roles in his life as best as he can – a dutiful son, a loving husband, a doting father, a supportive friend, an encouraging guide and a steadfast citizen. In every aspect, Mohanji performs his role to perfection.
Even though his public life started in 2012, it was an arduous journey to reach from there to his current level of global recognition. He was never afraid to walk alone despite the many hurdles, objections, betrayals and falls on that journey. Coming from relative anonymity, he raised himself to global recognition through his service, love and firm conviction in humanity.
He believes that his presence on earth is due to the grace and support of the powerful tradition of liberation and the various masters who lived in eternal freedom according to that tradition.

Life is about achievements, but is not about the cups and trophies in the wardrobe. It is about the blessings that you rendered to the helpless. It is about our ability to make a positive difference to another being. True achievements cannot be counted in fingers, but can only be measured through one’s spiritual progress, one’s level of liberation. True achievements are the tangible moments that we lived selflessly. This is the only place where everyone wins. All material achievements are gain for some and loss for some.

Global Footprint

Mohanji has created a number of platforms to allow those who choose to associate with him to add value to society through consistent acts of kindness and compassion. He leads by example and is constantly busy in helping and serving others, making himself available to champion causes that develop and improve society. He has founded various charities and organisations such as Ammucare, ACT Foundation, Mohanji Foundation, Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga, World Consciousness Alliance and Early Birds Club to name a few.
Today, there are around 15 countries where some or all of these institutions are formally registered while followers are present in over 80 countries. They collectively work to further his mission of helping people reach their highest potential and thereby making this place a better world. As an expression of gratitude to the world, Mohanji has made his practices and techniques available for free to the worldwide community.
In line with his path of ahimsa (non-violence), Mohanji firmly believes that practical initiatives are required to provide cruelty free alternatives to help people make conscious choices to avoid causing pain and suffering to nature and its beings. Towards that end, he has inspired Ahimsa Vegan (a vegan chain of restaurants), Vegan First (India’s first portal for vegans, that hosted the international Vegan Conference in New Delhi in 2019) and Ahimsa Wear (a label for vegan and cruelty free apparel) amongst other initiatives to create a cruelty free world. In recognition of his selfless service to the world, he has been widely feted and awarded by various organisations from around the world.

Leading by Example

Amidst all the adulation, Mohanji always considers himself a mere projection of the powerful tradition of liberation, sent to reiterate the same essential truths that Masters have been propounding since ages. He makes the esoteric and arcane wisdom of the ancients available to a contemporary audience without diluting their import or depth. His teachings are simple, practical and universal, cutting across religions and nationalities.
He speaks from the heart and is an original. He envisions a bright world that vibrates with positivity and compassion. To this end, he marches on boldly launching and building new platforms tirelessly.
