Yatra with Mohanji

I have a desire to be able to go with Mohanji and the family on pilgrimage to Mount  Kailash. This time it seems not possible in a physical matter, but my mind and heart are with you. The connection is what is most important, I realise that every day; in His presence is a pilgrimage. It turned out to be a poem.

Yatra with Mohanji
(on the Road to Kailash and everywhere else)

It is just a feeling
Is it your grace again?
That is guiding me from within
And is calling me to walk with you

Still the road hidden, and my vision a bit dim
But the Path that we follow is Bright
Be aware, Just a single step can change the course of a life
But by grace Your footprints glow in the night

So walk in peace and walk in Grace
Surrender yourself to the One
Who is going nowhere but stays in a place
Of Stillness Beyond the Beyond

Now it does not matter where I’m going
Does not matter what I’m going through
All the People’s faces
all events and places
even what I thought to be me
turns out to be only YOU

A Man I Know Of

Mohanji, kriya intensive in Bosnia 2019 (17)

There is a man I know of,
who works tirelessly every moment,
he gives all he has, and then some more,
touches many a heart which is open,
Is he a reality, the mind questions,
but there is no mistaking his actions!

There is a man I know of,
who empowers all those who look to him,
often with his own flesh and blood,
with no thought of its effect on his own resources,
how is he made this way, I often wonder,
because there is no logic to his generosity!

There is a man I know of,
who shines bright like a thundering lighthouse,
without a care for the fate of his safety,
just so he can guide the tossing ships,
lost in the darkness of the stormy seas called life.

There is a man I know of,
my heart swells up when I think of his nature,
I feel sad and happy at the same time,
for I know he will go unnoticed by many,
until, all we have is his legends.

There is a man I know of,
and I am honoured to have met him in person,
for time can do what it wants with him,
but I know I will find him forever,
in the deepest corner of myself.

A Mystique Yogi Nath Mohanji

35472402_1816767375047658_8204880560481370112_o

“Mohan”

He captivates everyone
Like His name
He walks with grace
Glow on His face

A bewitching smile
With an innocence of a child

On His path
None goes empty
Animals or humans
He showers His blessings

He gazes with compassion
With never ending love

Some address Him as Guruji
Some call Him Master or Baba
Some call Him Father

For me He is my all in one
A “Big Brother”
An assurance He gives me
“I am always with you ”
Is a reminder from my beloved Guru
All I can say is I love Him
All I can see is Love personified

Jai Matha! Jai Bhagwan!!
Jai Mohanji! Jai Guru Parampara!!

Grant Me Your Grace

devotional poem, prayer, grant me your grace
I’m only human caught in this trap of my mind
Mohanji Guru
Help me believe in what I could be
And all that I am my Guru
Is a soul seeking Your love
Show me the way back home
Show me a way into the silence
For that is all I wanna be
Master grant me Your grace
Beloved master for my sake, teach me Your ways
To become like You
And follow Your example
One step at a time
Beloved master
That’s all I’m asking from You.
Just give me the strength
Papa Mohanji
To do every day what I have to do.
Yesterday is gone
But today is my hope
And tomorrow may never be mine.
Lord help me today, show me Your way
Beloved master
One step at a time I will take
Do You remember, master when You spoke to me
You told me You know my heart
Sometimes I am in pain master
But Your words have graced me
What can I say
Thank You my dear Mohanji

The Urge of the Soul

devotional poem, kneeling prayer

Oh beloved master
I knock at Your beloved heart again
listening to your satsangs 
brings out the best in me

Your profound truth marries
my very existence
Your message plays
the music of love
the soul becomes the dancer
lost in the symphony of this divine delight

of pure bliss
the soul opens like
a thousand-petal lotus
giving of His perfumes
just to see Your face
help me rise above

The mind’s limitations
emotions that imprison
my freedom
merge me into the oneness of Your love

Guru you have lifted
my thoughts into freedom
the seed of longing
has been planted firmly
into the beloveds heart

My Heart in the Guru’s Love

Mohanji 10

Oh beloved Mohanji
Your kind and gentle voice
Whispers softly into my ears
Reminding me of who I am

Your love has infused
My cells with grace
My heart is burning intensely
I am saturated with bliss
The soul has been nurtured
By Your never ending love

Every breath is in Your name
Every utterance is in Your will
Your teachings are the rarest
Jewels in this world

Your presence brings
Happiness in this world
Satisfaction to the heart
You gave me hope through
My depressed state of mind
You have conquered the mind
Only to teach us Your inner wealth
Jai Mohanji

Mohanji, the Formless One

Mohanji 9

I pray that You guide me
Against the storms of life
I pray that You make me like You
Through the journey of life

Help me dissolve all my expectations
Let my ego die in the quick sand of life
Nothing should be the obstacle of separation
Rise me above all the limitations of the mind

Help me to never stop writing to You
Failure will come to play a part of my life
But let the divine awareness take place
In my heart

I will rise like the setting sun
And be like the Moon hidden
Behind the dark clouds
I will find my way above the clouds
Only to whisper You name in delight

Beautiful form, oh beloved master
Oh formless one
I’m waiting for thee
Allow my rebirth into freedom

Bathe me into bliss
Strengthen my faith
So, so that devotion
Does not waver
Oh beloved master
I am in eternal delight

Mohanji, I Can’t Imagine My Life without You

Devotional poem, Praying hands, I cant imagine my life without you
I cannot imagine my life without You
I just wanna be with You
I just wanna be with You
Papa Mohanji
Can you hear me my Lord

Oh my dear Lord
Let the heavens hear me above
I cry out to you Lord
Just listen to my pain
I am lost without You my Lord

I am drifting away with this storm
Come and rescue me my Lord
I am nothing without You
In this crisis the pain
Hurts so much that darkness creeps

Within my mind
Help me keep my faith strong
In You forever and forever my Lord
You all I have as Guru
And as my friend

Hear my cry Lord
Hear my cry Lord
I cannot imagine my life without You
I need Your hand father
To take me through this storm

Come and take my hand
Father of grace
And loving compassion
Raise me up
to be more like You

Oh lord hear my cry
Oh lord hear my cry
I cannot imagine my life without you

Mohanji, Make a Way for Me

Devotional poem - Mohanji Make a Way for Me

Tears rolling down my cheeks
Awaiting Your presence
Heavenly Father knows that
Your child awaits thee
I seek shelter in Your infinite grace
My soul craves for Your darshan
Mohanji recuse me from my dilemma

I am empty without Your love
I come with nothing but my true self
I offer all that I have at Your lotus feet
I seek nothing but Your love

My heart is calling out to you
Hear me papa Mohanji
In the midst of my suffering
And turmoil
My heart plays the music
Of love for You

My heart still longs for You
The flame of love burns
ever so brightly for You
Your majestic face
Can never be forgotten
From my mind heart and soul

Your presence is the medicine
For my soul and my troubled life
I long and yearn for this priceless treasure
To behold the glory of your presence
I just want to hug You Father
For that is all I want
Papa Mohanji
