On Saturday 18 May 2019, for the first time in Ljubljana, the lovely capital of Slovenia, Devi Mohan shared the grace of the Power of Purity meditation with a lovely audience and had a introductory talk about the teachings and life message of Mohanji.
Devi said: “Considering the pouring rain outside and the effect of the full moon, the group was so beautifully insulated in a bubble of bliss, so touched by the energy and the joy of experience sharing after meditation, that no one wanted to leave. Instead of 7pm, the event finished two hours later :-). Deep gratitude to Vija Vaja dance studio owner who us to stay as long as we wanted.“
One of the ladies present said: " Devi, your positivism is so special and contagious." Here are a couple of images from this beautiful evening.
Among other topics, that evening Devi spoke about the importance and priceless value of being in the physical presence of someone who has attained expanded consciousness beyond duality, i.e. mastered the mind. Devi shared how she recognized the depth of this message from the book “Autobiography of a Yogi”, the book that changed her life. And now, her life with Mohanji “writes novels” in itself :-).
All in all, it was a beautiful evening of high energy and depth of sharing of Love, supported by full Moon...
All looking forward to the Satsang with Mohanji on 8 June.

In joy, love and lightness once easily loses the sense of time, which is why the gathering lasted much longer than intended :-) All are joyously preparing for the experience of the first bigger Satsang with Mohanji in Otočec, Slovenia (near border to Croatia) on 8 June 2019.

Right after the presentation, the experiential part ensured - the audience enjoyed a downpour of divine energies during Mohanji's signature meditation, the Power of Purity. Depth of meditation was greatly enhanced by Mohanji Energy Transfer (MET) whose instruments were Devi and Jelena. Tears of gratitude any beautiful experiences were shared after meditation. Some felt the spiral of energy on top of the head (which is what Devi spoke about while describing the experience of Sun Gate at Machu Picchu). On of the ladies present said that she felt like a new hot blood was running through her veins, and that it reached even the part of her leg where she had varicose veins and blockages of energy flow. For the first time after a long time she could feel warm energy there.

During Satsang with Mohanji in Otoced, Slovenia, the audience will have a chance to experience Shaktipat from Mohanji directly.

Devi said: “I was honored to be part of the platform which gave voice to some of the greatest leaders in history of humankind: Swami Vivekanada, Nelson Mandela, Dalai Lama, Jane Goodall, and many more. For its 2018 theme, the Parliament of the World’s Religions drew from the movements of goodwill and cross-cultural respect that are embodied in the spirit of the interfaith movement: “The Promise of Inclusion, the Power of Love: Pursuing Global Understanding, Reconciliation, and Change” was the main theme of the event. I spoke on the 2nd day of the Parliament, partaking in the panel discussion “Interfaith Peacemaking Perspectives from Across the World”, highlighting the importance of interfaith peacemaking through selfless service and experiential spirituality rooted in inner truth. Edited version of the key parts of my speech at the PoWR can be viewed here .

YOGA IN GREENLAND IN JUNE 2018
Devi said: “On 21 June 2018, the summer solstice (the longest day in the year - and it surely was!) and International Day of Yoga we started the journey at 4am. Before midnight we were at the polar ice, in its eternal daylight. We surely were up for a challenge, way out of our comfort zone. Sleeping in the tents, surrounded by an unforeseen quantity of mosquitoes, no bathrooms - but the moment we saw the Big Ice we forgot about all that. It was so worth the trouble. There was something about it - the vast whiteness and purity of the polar ice spoke to our hearts. I could literally see/feel the ice radiating energy. It was just so indescribably beautiful. And our dear Uncle (the Eskimo elder Angaangaq Angarkkorsuaq) welcomed us with great love, warmth and humor to the home of his ancestors. His speeches were really touching. He said the ice was only one third of what it was before. The glaring reality of our environmental crisis was right before our eyes. And this is why we were here - to raise the awareness of other people who, preoccupied with daily life, simply don't see this reality. I felt blessed by meeting some amazing people doing great work for humanity.
Eskimo Elder Angaangaq Angarkkorsuaq said: “It is the human heart which needs to melt. This is a priority if we are to stop the melting of our mother ice.”
I was amazed by the beauty of the white polar radiance of Mother Earth. The sacred ice spoke to my heart, as it did in the Himalayas....
We offer our humble contribution in raising the awareness about the urgency of changing our approach to environment. Yoga photos by Marcus Hansen, embodiment of humbleness.”

So much love from the children was never anticipated. After Yoga our HSTY team visited their school nearby and could witness first-hand the conditions in which they were studying. And yet, they radiated so much joy. Interaction with the children was so beautiful, proving that love can overcome any barrier, including that of language. Devi entertained the children with several lines in Marathi language from the movie “Foreignchi Patlin” in which she acted in 1998. Meeting a movie heroine and practicing Yoga with people from various countries was a surreal and joyous event for the children and our HSTY team as well.

Participants learned why this chakra is so important for one's spiritual awakening, which asanas and pranayama help in opening of heart chakra and had the first hand experience of the same. Intensity of the experience was totally unexpected. Some said this was the first time in their lives that they felt such strong, melting sensation in the chest region. The Power of Purity meditation right after yoga, with beautiful Mohanji Energy Transfer that melted many inner blockages, further deepened the experience and left us speechless. It was an unforgettable evening of Grace and immense blessings. Mohanji's subtle presence was clearly felt.”
Weekend Program with Devi Mohan in Durban, 22-24 Sept 2017

With each hour of the program we were becoming more and more close to each other. All fell in love with Yoga during our morning HSTY sessions during which Devi made us enter into positions we never imagined before in her fun and captivating way. All new lightness and joy was experienced by all after each Yoga session.
On the second day we had even more people attending the program and the stories that Devi shared with us brought tears to our eyes. Awakening Yoga Nidra was an overwhelmingly intense, cleansing and transformative. The experience expanded our horizons and soaked us with Grace and bliss. The program ended with joy through dance - a lovely Bharatnatyam performance by Kiara Govender, followed by Mila's spontaneous dance performance that made us all childlike and blissed out. At the end of the program we were a true family and nobody wanted to leave. What we gained this weekend is truly precious - cleansed, transformed and expanded in love, united as one big family, we felt deeply enriched and elevated.

YOGA with DEVI MOHAN at the SEDONA YOGA FESTIVAL in March 2017
Devi conducted three Yoga sessions at the Sedona Yoga Festival in March 2017, representing Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga. This is how she described the experience:
“Sedona Yoga Festival is a really amazing platform for Yoga and experiential spirituality which included an overwhelming array of high-quality sessions and workshops that included Yoga, meditation, breath-work, crystals, kirtans and bhajans, gong baths, various forms of alternative healing, etc.
It was especially wonderful to experience the exchange of energy between Mohanji and such amazing audience. He was a true mirror of their maturity and beauty. It was magical and deeply touching.
My first session was indoors with approx. 20 people. I was amazed to see that most of them practiced Yoga for more than 15 years, traveled to India, have been practicing Kriya for years, and/or are Yoga Instructors themselves. I totally did not expect that. However, they were as humble and receptive as they could be and their maturity created truly amazing group energy. This trend continued throughout Sedona Yoga Festival. I thanked them on this experience and felt truly honored to be in a position to be the instrument of Yoga teaching to such wonderful people.
Right after my first Yoga session I attended a beautiful session led by Tao-Porchon Lynch, a true inspiration to all Yogis, Yoginis and/or Yoga Instructors out there - although 98 years old, she is superb in her Yoga practice, full of life, love and enthusiasm. She really touched my heart and I so enjoyed her radiant presence.
It was an amazing honor to meet Mark Whitwall, a distinguished teacher of 'Heart of Yoga' and one of the best contemporary Yoga instructors from the tradition of Krishnamacharya (1988 – 1989). It’s always a great blessing to exchange insights with a true servant of Yoga.
Second Yoga session was outdoors, on a beautiful terrace with a view of the stunning red rocks of Sedona. Exactly during sunrise the time for Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar) came and made it magical.
In all my Yoga practice this was the first time that I really felt it – immense heart-melting gratitude and expansion while flowing with the Sun Salutations and chanting the mantras saluting the Sun, giver of life, friend of all, the one who illumines our lives… It was heavenly. All present truly appreciated Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga.
I always give great value to Yoga Nidra experience in the end. I must say that this was one of the most amazing Yoga Nidra experiences I have ever had. My consciousness expanded and I could feel all those who were present within me. It felt as if we entered a bubble of bliss – no other sound existed, only the intense vibration and sublime beauty of the experience. There were some other workshops happening outdoor at the same time, but we could not hear any of it (this was confirmed to me later on by several other people present at the Yoga session who came forward to express gratitude). Divine energy of the vortexes engulfed us. It felt like Mother’s embrace, so loving, so gentle… I chanted several ancient mantras in Sanskrit language in the end and could feel them more intensely than ever before. After the session was over, I thanked the beautiful souls present and cried for no reason. All of us were deeply touched by this experience of oneness and love.”
Yoga with Devi Mohan, at the World Bank IN Washington DC, April 2016
Devi said: “It was a true priviledge and great joy to conduct a Yoga session to the staff of The World Bank in Washington DC. It is commendable that lovely people of all nationalities choose to forsake their lunch and gather several times per week during the lunch break to enjoy the blessing of Yoga. This was my second time to conduct Yoga at The World Bank and this year experience was even greater than 2 years ago.
The receptivity and dedication of these lovely people was truly awesome - intensity during each asana and deep relaxation during Yoga Nidra brought blissful radiant smiles to all :-).
It would be great to see Yoga during lunch break as the trend in all corporations... Gratitude to dear Lata Ganesh and a lovely Yogi Davinderji who made this happen.”

Techniques that were presented were all highly effective and easily applicable in daily life and challenging life situations. Examples were strengthened by sincere sharing of Devi Mohan’s real life experiences which touched the hearts of the seminar participants.
The following topics were covered:
How to calm the mind and consciously direct our thoughts for the highest good, center ourselves, improve concentration and control our emotions – practical application of meditation, Yoga, ancient breathing techniques (Pranayama and Swara Yoga) in order to attain these goals.
Deeper understanding of human aura, energy centers (chakras) and meridians – experience and life lessons through chakras with real life examples.
How to deal with stress, anxiety and other challenges of a fast-paced life full of pressure.
Energy laws (Law or Attraction, Law of Karma) and how they truly work.
Basics of healthy food and a holistic approach to life and health.
Importance of gratitude.
Feedback from the seminar participants was exceptionally positive. Devi said: “This seminar was a true milestone as it was the first seminar of this sort conducted at the University. I look forward to many more such seminars in the near future. “
