19 – 26 October
As you may know there was a significant fire at the Zmar Eco Resort on Saturday, 24th September. It started in the afternoon and took some hours to get under control. By grace, no one was hurt.
Over the past 5 years Zmar has become a beautiful and important part of our Sangha family, and our hearts and prayers are very much with the centre and its staff. It was all due to their dedicated presence and loving service that we have been able to offer powerful Satsang retreats with thousands of beings from all over the world.
It took some days to fully assess the damage from the fire and the impact it will have on Zmar’s operations. After visiting Zmar this afternoon, we are happy to report that the Silent Retreat with Mooji Baba from 19 – 26 October will be going ahead as planned. The Satsang Hall, accommodations and the land are completely unaffected. All the retreat activities usually offered to complement Satsang, such as bhajans, laughing yoga and morning yoga, will still take place.
Naturally, the areas affected by the fire will be closed during the retreat. For those familiar with Zmar, this includes the kitchen, dining area, café, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, pool deck and spa areas. Zmar will still be providing all meals, and these will be served in a new temporary kitchen and dining area being set up especially for the retreat.
We feel an immense grace and auspiciousness in offering this retreat as planned, and we are deeply grateful to be able to support our Zmar family. We are looking forward to welcoming all who are attending the retreat on 19th October.
In loving service,

19 July 2016
From all that has been shared today,
I won't even ask that you intentionally try to remember anything.
It is better that you just allow the space of being to be
without putting anything in it. Nothing new, nothing old.
Just be aware of the sense of being, the feeling of pure presence.
No one needed to support it, control it, or water it.
It is simply here, as it is. Water it with your attention.
Be one with it and It will remind you and remain in, with and as you.
It will bring your mind back
into its natural unity, harmony and wholeness.
Don't ask how. Just keep quiet. Trust.
Best now to stay in this state of emptiness which is a stateless state.
The mind will say, 'Okay, we have been patient and good
for two whole hours, now its time to party!
Let's find some friends, go find a pub or something.'
My advice: Don't do this. Honour your seeing.
Digest your experiencing. Keep quiet.
Respect what you are discovering,
That which the ego-ridden mind fails to grasp.
Therefore, it wants to reject it—the state of effortless grace.
There is far more to you than what your mind has to say about you.
Allow a little space to my pointing
so that your seeing matures into greater clarity
and auspiciously a deeper level of consciousness
will begin to rise to the surface of the mind.
Unexpected things will come into being
to strengthen you in ways you cannot imagine.
They will establish and reveal a deeper
and more profound understanding of your true nature.
The flow of grace will begin to remove your fears and doubts
and replace them with an increased feeling of peace
and a natural sense of joy and lightness of being.
Trust This fully.
Just in the way that the natural progression of
a caterpillar is to become butterfly,
the natural progression of a human being
is to become conscious of themselves as timeless Awareness.
Like this, each one will rise above the shallow waters of ego.
Your true destiny is to wake up to your universal Consciousness-Being,
which is the light in this world.
Don't wait for someone else to go in front of you.
You honour your own Self.
It is not a person.
Remain unattached and centred in the heart
and you will attract the Supreme.
So let today close with this blessing:
May all whose hearts are beating for freedom and Truth
flower into perfect awakening and unity with the Real.
May their minds expand in wisdom and compassion,
love, openness and universality.
May you find the one true thing worth discovering in this life
and be timelessly free and happy.
And may all who meet you on the path of life
be inspired by your presence.
May they be so moved by your peace and genuineness,
your love and openness, your strength and joy
that they are compelled to search within themselves
to find the light that they see in you.
Like this may your light shine for all and forever.
This is the true communion of a human being,
the human soul and spirit:
that in connecting and sharing with each other from the Heart
we impart blessing and uplift the collective universal consciousness
without turning it into a task.
Just by meeting with the love that you are,
with the peace that you are,
with the joy that you are,
nobody will forget you.
Existing in the Truth of your Self,
your light is bringing so much joy,
hope and inspiration in this world,
You must become the proof that God exists.
Blessed is the one whose life and presence is the evidence of Truth.
Don't think of yourself as being too little for this great discovery.
You are already the universal consciousness. You are already whole.
Don't let your mind hide or distort this truth.
Every power is given unto human beings
to transcend the dark ways of the mind.
Take courage. Don't complain.
Everyone must go through the thick forest of existence
and must feel the doubts, pains and the fears
that come due to ignorance of the Self.
You have the power to transcend the veiling hypnosis
of conditioning and limited personal identity,
and to win yourself back from these states of delusion.
And you will do it. It is only a question of time.
There are some beings who can't wait. Enough waiting.
They will remain immersed in the one true Self.
So until we have the opportunity to meet again
go in peace and with the love that I feel for You
who are the Truth embodied.

Aarti comes from the Sanskrit word ārātrika आरात्रिक – which means the holy light that removes darkness. It’s a beautiful way of showing respect to Sri Ramana Maharshi, Sri Poonjaji and our beloved Master, Mooji Baba. This is our offering of gratitude for the sages who have brought these pointings to our hearts.
Our great Master is a rare one who brings together Jnana yoga, Karma yoga and Bhakti yoga. This aarti we offer is a beautiful expression of devotion, of Bhakti yoga. It carries the pure vibration of divinity, love and gratitude.
So don’t worry if you can’t pronounce the words properly, an open heart is all that’s needed. Feel free to join in. If you are watching via broadcast, you can find a link to the original Sanskrit words and their English translation on the Live Satsang page.
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has donated via the Amazon Wishlist over the past few years. It has been so beautiful to receive these items given with such love – all of your support continues to be an important part of building and maintaining Monte Sahaja, as well as supporting the live broadcasts and making Mooji Baba’s pointings so accessible worldwide!
Now that Monte Sahaja has grown, some restructuring has come into place, and for now the best way to support Sahaja and the sharing of Mooji Baba’s teachings, is to make a monetary donation, choosing one of the options presented on our donate page.
We are deeply grateful for your contributions and continued support! If you have any questions regarding donations, please write to us at .
With love and gratitude,
Lisbon, Portugal, July 2016
May all whose heart long for this peace,
this joy, for lasting freedom or to truly meet God,
come to the complete realization of the Self,
be timelessly happy and become liberated beings.
May you continue to expand in wisdom,
in serenity and in joy and love.
May all who meet you on the way of life
be touched by your presence,
be inspired by your light,
by your peace and openness.
And may they be so moved and inspired
that they feel compelled to search within themselves
to find the light that they see in you,
and like this find happiness for their own Self.
May true blessings of peace and unity continue to flower inside the hearts of this country.
May your growth be truly a growth in spirit,
and not merely a growth in material prosperity.
May you grow into a nation of love and wisdom,
of true unity and richness of spirit,
and inspire other nations to discover what you are discovering.
Let it be so.
Om shanti, shanti om

Que todos aqueles cujos corações anseiam por esta paz, esta alegria, pela liberdade duradoura ou por verdadeiramente encontrarem Deus venham à realização completa do Ser,
sejam intemporalmente felizes e se tornem em seres libertos.
Que continuem a expandir em sabedoria, em serenidade, em alegria e em amor.
Que todos aqueles que se cruzam convosco no caminho da vida sejam tocados pela vossa presença.
E se sintam inspirados pela vossa luz, pela vossa paz e abertura.
E que eles fiquem tão comovidos e inspirados que se sentem compelidos a procurar dentro deles próprios para encontrarem a luz que vêem em vocês, e desta forma encontrarem a felicidade para eles próprios.
Que verdadeiras bênçãos de paz e união continuem a florescer nos corações do povo deste país.
Que o vosso crescimento seja realmente um crescimento do espírito, e não meramente um crescimento em prosperidade material.
Que possam tornar-se numa nação de amor e sabedoria, de verdadeira união e riqueza de espírito, e que possam inspirar outras nações a descobrir o que vocês estão a descobrir.
Que assim seja.
Om Shanti Shanti Om.
Here Satvi and Vasudeva share their experiences of being with Vidya in the last few days before she dropped her physical form:
When you read from the Ribhu Gita at the end of the Satsang it was like you read about Vidya!
On Monday 9th, in the morning she said with strength and authority, “Now, quickly bring me to the clinic.” That was after she couldn't manage her body any more, couldn't stand on her feet any more.
Before this, although having difficulty in the body she preferred to be in her home. Complete detachment from her body – and at the same time taking care for it as much as possible and more and more accepting help in practical things – and wellbeing in her spirit were present throughout the whole time. "There are no problems" and "I am fine" she always said and one could feel it was so. Many people wanted to visit and although that was bodily exhausting she always accepted. The way she was, calmed the visitors’ fear and worries.
Being in her presence was a blessing for everyone. Vidya never complained and was always radiant, joyful and pure love.
Many asked why she could be like this – always joyful, radiant, loving, without sorrow. And then she talked clearly and full of love and wisdom about your pointing, about you, about Sahaja, about her time and her work there. Often people then wanted to know how they could find you and she told them about YouTube, mooji.org and mooji.tv.
In the clinic, the body became less and less very quickly, but still the same contentment, love, radiance and patience.
Recently, pointing at the calendar at the wall, she said smiling: “Mai (May) - when you read it backwards it says I AM.”
Vasudeva, who was visiting her in the clinic with us, also said that it was a blessing to be in her presence. He might write some words himself.
For the last 24 hours, Vidya was in the hospice of the clinic. The lady who was introducing her to the transfer to the hospice asked how Vidya was. Vidya answered: “I am always well” and that was, and is, the truth. One could feel it in the beautiful room, where the dead body lay on a bed. The room was filled with love and light. And with the whole family coming with children and grandchildren, receiving and radiating love themselves.
Words seem too small to describe what this wonderful liberated being, Vidya, gave until her last breath and gives.
You, beloved Guruji, will feel in your heart and write the words which describe the timeless boundless truth, Vidya.
Infinite love and gratitude.
Satvi and Thomas
It was a very loving environment with people taking care with full heart, not a normal hospital.
Vidya was very appreciative of everything and everyone she saw.
Her first words to me were “Om Namah Shivaya” and “Guruji Ki Jai!”
Visiting her that day felt more like I was receiving her darshan and blessings instead of me bringing something or being of any help to her.
Thank you, thank you, thank you...

Recently, we have been approached by many beings, particularly those following Mooji Baba on Facebook and YouTube, asking for more information about Sahaja Express.
Sahaja Express arose with the sole intention to share the freshest and most direct guidance with those seekers who are more spiritually mature and who are following Mooji Baba’s pointings deeply in the heart. The material usually comes from spontaneous satsangs and is therefore often more informal, intimate, unedited and raw in nature, but immensely powerful. Initially, information about Sahaja Express was shared only with those who had participated in retreats with Mooji Baba and with those who had spent time with the Master at Monte Sahaja and received his direct guidance.
We did not publicise this subscription service further than this as we did not want to create an impression that we were advertising a commercial product. However, as there have been increasing numbers of people inquiring about this service, we are now opening the opportunity for all to subscribe to Sahaja Express. Information can be found on mooji.tv/subscription.

During the silent retreat at Zmar from May 18-25 2016, we will provide live satsang translation into Portuguese, Spanish and Italian for the participants in the satsang hall as well as the online viewers.
Further information to follow.
Please note that the live translation service is offered by a team of devoted, non-professional interpreters. Therefore it is possible that some of Sri Mooji’s words may be omitted or not translated correctly. We are aware of this, but we also feel that it is so helpful and valuable for many beings to understand the satsangs in their native language. However, Sri Mooji’s own words always remain the highest reference.
Durante o retiro de Zmar de 18 a 25 de Maio de 2016, vamos oferecer traduções ao vivo de satsangs para português, tanto para os participantes presentes na sala como também para aqueles participando online.
Mais informações em breve.
Tenha em consideração que as traduções ao vivo são proporcionadas por uma equipa de intérpetes dedicados e amadores. Existe por isso a possibilidade de algumas das palavras de Sri Mooji serem omitidas ou traduzidas de forma incorreta. Estamos conscientes disso mas sentimos também que é uma mais valia e uma ajuda tão preciosa para muitos seres poderem ter acesso aos satsangs na sua língua materna. No entanto, as palavras de Sri Mooji deverão ser sempre a primeira referência.
Durante il ritiro che si svolge a Zmar dal 18 al 25 maggio 2016, tradurremo in diretta il satsang in italiano. Il servizio è rivolto sia ai partecipanti presenti in sala, sia a coloro che seguono il ritiro tramite Internet.
Forniremo presto ulteriori informazioni.
Vi preghiamo di tener conto del fatto che le traduzioni in simultanea si svolgono grazie alla dedizione di un gruppo di discepoli, che tuttavia non hanno competenze professionali. Quindi è possibile che alcune delle parole di Sri Mooji non vengano tradotte o non vengano tradotte in maniera corretta. Ne siamo consapevoli, ma riteniamo comunque che per tanti esseri sia utile e prezioso poter comprendere i satsang nella propria lingua madre. In ogni caso, il punto di riferimento massimo sono sempre le parole che proferisce Sri Mooji stesso.
Ofreceremos traducción en directo del satsang en español durante el retiro en Zmar del 18 al 25 de Mayo del 2016, tanto para los participantes en la sala como para la transmisión en directo.
En breve proporcionaremos más información.
Rogamos tengan en cuenta que el servicio de traducción en directo es ofrecido por un equipo de intérpretes no profesionales pero entregados en su labor. Es por ello que algunas de las palabras de Sri Mooji pueden ser omitidas o traducidas incorrectamente. Somos conscientes de ello, pero sentimos que es de gran ayuda y valor para muchos poder entender los satsangs en su lengua materna. No obstante, las propias palabras de Sri Mooji siempre se mantendrán como la fuente de referencia original.

Ramana's Garden Children's Home

of his Master Papaji
Sri Mooji returns to the home of his Master, Sri Poonjaji (Papaji) for the first time since 1997.
This video is a rare and very moving account of these few days in Lucknow where he visits the Master's home
and Satsang Bhavan, and includes some stories from Sri Mooji's time there in 1993 and 1997.
It was in August of 1997 that Sri Mooji had returned to London, one month before the Master left the body.
Now, with the passing of some nineteen years, he was to stand outside the gates of the Master’s house once again.
The smell of rose garlands set a mood of quiet anticipation as the last members of the visiting group arrived.
The visit was a beautifully moving occasion as Mooji Baba entered Papaji’s home in Indira Nagar, Lucknow.
Approximately, twenty five members of Mooji Sangha accompanied him for darshan.
Bhavani, Vandita and Bharat Mitra, a close disciple and spiritual son of the Great Master, Sri Poonjaji,
were instrumental in bringing Mooji Baba back to Lucknow. The family of Sri Poonja received Mooji Baba
and his followers with great kindness.
After sharing some beautiful memories with the group, Mooji Baba proceeded to the Master’s bedroom
where he laid his head at the foot of the Master’s bed. Several devotees entered the room and sat
in quiet reverence in the sacred space. After a short while, Sri Mooji Baba, deeply moved, uttered the following words.
Just as I had the privilege to be with you,
I now bring all those that you invite through me to You
to have the privilege to sit at your feet.
Nothing is mine—all is You.
Thank you for this privilege.
May we remain always at your feet,
And inside your heart.
how privileged we are that we can be here
to sit at your lotus feet.
Master of Masters,
Bestow upon each one your full Grace.
Thank you that you have sent
your son, Bharat, to bring me here.
I Love You.
I bring with me those who you have chosen to come here.
Blessed are they who will continue to take your Darshan in this way.
I pray that they will come to know and love you as deeply as we do.
We experience that your true place is inside our hearts as the inseparable Self.
Thank you for this moment and this knowing.
Returning here I see that so many things
in the outer world have changed,
but You remain timeless and unchanging.
How blessed we are.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,
O Supreme One.
Though we sit here at the shrine of your earthly abode
it is You who give the inner eyes to see and feel your formlessness.
It is your eyes that we look through. Thank you for this miracle.
Your being, your heart, your loving presence,
Blessed is this day.
Veneration to your holy name.

Manikarnika Ghat in Varanasi, India on 3 April, 2016:
our brother, our son, our father, our beloved,
who transcended the body in Sao Martinho Das Amoreiras, Alentejo, Portugal a few days ago.
We love and honour you, dear Govinda.
I embrace you inside my heart and present you before the Supreme Lord of the Universe,
blessed be your soul in all its experiences hereafter.
I am with you, you are with me, we are with you, you are with us, as one in Paramatman.
O, infinite existence—we love you timelessly.
We welcome your spirit, your loving presence inside our hearts and our lives.
We light this flame in honour of your name in the presence of the Almighty God.
Let it be so.
We are happy to share all of the photos from the fifth week of Open Satsang with Sri Mooji in Rishikesh, India.
We would also like to let you know that all of the photos from the Darshan line and other photos with Sri Mooji will be posted soon after the Satsang season.

It is said that 2600 years ago, there was one man who having come to the discovery of the timeless within himself forgot his person and became a light in this world. 2600 years later, new Buddhists are emerging and following these ancient teachings and experiencing for themselves what he discovered.
2000 years ago, another man also found the Light and himself became the light of this world. To this very day, many people are immersing themselves in this Christ-light to find the living truth within themselves. And there are many other examples.
And we know in these times, the lives of Sri Ramana Maharshi or Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj or Papaji, they pointed out the truth in the most direct way, an ancient wisdom that had also sprouted here in India but remained dormant until the great sage Adi Shankara revived interest in the path of Advaita—the non-dual path to Self-realisation. These great masters continue to shine the light and grace of this perfect understanding, and many many beings have thus come into the light for themselves.
This is our chance now, to make use of the same timeless pointing, the same place pointed to. These masters had bodies just like ours. They looked at the same moon and the sun just like we do, but they saw the power, harmony and the all-encompassingness of Truth. And like moths to a flame, they died to themselves to bring this light into the world.
It is now our turn, our chance in this present age. No one is exempt from this discovery, because all beings are, in essence, this Reality. I am not speaking poetry to you but what I have seen and comprehended in and through my own experience—that this chance to awaken to the eternal truth and timeless existence is there for everyone. Wherever you are, whether you are on the other side of this screen or sitting in this room, know that wherever there arises this urge, this pulse for freedom, for ultimate understanding, for coming home, for Self knowledge or Self-realisation, right there is a door to your complete awakening.
However diverse we may appear to be, in truth, we all speak the same one language, and that language is consciousness. All the other languages like Hindi, English, Russian or German are only translating consciousness. Consciousness is our common language, our essence and source self—the ground of being. I don’t have the sense I am here to convert or persuade anybody. Already a movement began in you to bring you here. The food need only be put on the table. If you are hungry you will put it in your mouth. But here, the food is put in your heart also—if you have the love and space for it. My teaching is like a tree that bears immediate fruit and its fruit keeps getting sweeter and sweeter each moment.
I know amongst you there are those whose lives will never again be the same, for whom there is no past to go back to and as for the future, they perceive it as mere speculation. They find the fullness of their lives now—not in the now of time, but in the now of timelessness. The clock of time ticks away, but the opportunity to discover the timeless is being revealed to all seekers of truth according to their capacity to hear truth deeply.
In each one there must arise the urge to be free from the influence of the psychological mind—to be free from the hypnosis of personal conditioning. Sometimes it can appear as though you are making too big a sacrifice, like, ‘Why must I give up the things I enjoy most in order to find my truth?!’ But no one is really being asked to give up anything but rather to give attention to the unchanging space which is the background to the movement called mind. And in paying attention to that with full heart, you discover your natural mind and your true Self.
I have nothing to give you. I only point to that which has been overlooked though, in truth, it is the womb of this universe. It is the resting place, the dying place and the birthplace of all life. It is the giver, the creator, the sustainer, the destroyer, and beyond the dream of all such play.
To humanity, this should be a great news, a real chance to find lasting happiness, because it’s not merely news but an invitation to look within and discover the one true Self—the non-dual pearl of ultimate Truth. Man’s latent desire is to discover that which, in fact, he can never not be, but yet he remains asleep to this—a sleep that robs him of his inherent joy. Let each man come to know that his true heart is the light of this world. He must strive to prevent his mind from hiding this. When he succeeds, his earth will become heaven.

Because of this written questions to Mooji Answers are not being accepted at this time.
We highly recommend you join the live broadcasts that will happen five days each week during the India season at Mooji Live, as often the question burning in your heart is also in the hearts of others and you will find there is no need for you to ask directly.
Rishikesh, India 2016
A welcoming of our beloved Master at the beginning of the 2016 Rishikesh satsang season.

RISHIKESH SATSANGS 2016
Sri Mooji will be sharing Satsang at Swatatranand Ashram in Rishikesh, India from 17th February to 20th March 2016. The Satsangs are Free and Open to all, and will also be broadcast live on mooji.tv/live-satsang.
Sri Mooji receives many gifts from beings all over the world. Though he deeply appreciates all the loving kindness he receives, unfortunately his living space is too small to hold all the beautiful gifts and he finds he has to give many things away. So, he asks at this time, please do not send him any personal gifts.
However, if you still feel, even after reading this, that you would really like to give something to him, you can send a contribution towards buying the trees that he so dearly enjoys planting at Monte Sahaja.
Thank you for your understanding.
If you would like to contribute towards buying the trees you can do so on the donation page.
Sam Garrett is here. You are about to meet him through his music. It is pure Soul music that emanates directly from the inner soul of Being. Here is a pure voice singing pure words — lyrics that pour out from the very womb of life.
Sam Garrett’s gift is a voice that can sing the sweetest Reggae then shift to deliver the most heart touching Bhajan. Many of you have already had a taste of this when Sam shared his form of Sat-songs featuring the beautiful voice of NyOh at the recent Satsang Intensive in London with Mooji. Like Mooji, a universal love pours out from Sam’s heart and this love is infecting more and more people around the globe. Perhaps this joy may soon touch your heart too.
Sam currently has two CDs available:
Namaste and Be Easy.
A new album called Grace is due for release this March 2016.
Sri Mooji was asked 'What is the meaning of life?' by the online magazine Excellence Reporter.
'This is perhaps one of the most seemingly profound questions within the human kingdom. Yet at closer scrutiny it is revealed as one of the most elusive in as far as coming to any one satisfactory answer.'
Seasons greetings from Sri Mooji and all at Monte Sahaja
The very significance of Christmas is this Christ Consciousness,
the Christ-light, which is the real light of the world.
The light of consciousness,
the light of the Self in its purest dynamic expression,
is what we call the Christ
that manifested in the human form called Jesus so many years ago,
but the source and origin of this light
is timelessly unchangeable.
Just in this moment now,
I invite you to consciously, willingly embody the spirit of Christ.
You can do this, in fact, because it is here already;
it is essentially what we are.
When you fully wake up to the reality of the Self
through complete and final understanding,
you will see that it is nothing new.
It is always timelessly present, complete, and perfect.
The recognition might feel new,
but that which is recognised
is timeless and is ever-present.
I am inviting you to embody this Christ Consciousness,
which means to fully acknowledge, welcome,
and be your source Self.
You can recognise this
for it is your real nature,
this Christ-light or Krishna Consciousness
which is the same thing.
I remind you of Sri Ramana Maharshi's statement:
He says that ‘The “I” removes the “I”, yet remains the “I”.’
Another way of putting that, in the form of a prayer,
is 'Replace me with you.'
It is the same thing.
We are very accustomed to relating to ourself from the status of a person,
so now this sense of the person is saying:
'Replace me with You who are my source.'
This Source is not outside of or apart from yourself.
'Remove that which appears to be what I am, but in reality I am not.
Replace this ego-identity with my true Self.
Let there be only You who are pure and complete Truth.'
—This prayer is generated by the pure consciousness
which has blessed this human form with
the timing of its own Self-revelation.
The 'You' in that prayer also means ‘my true Self’,
because in reality there is no ‘you’ in the universe;
there is only 'I'.
All beings know themselves as ‘I'.
When you feel that 'I am this body',
then another body is given the label 'you'.
But when you pray to God and say 'Replace me with You,'
it means replace the ego identity with pure consciousness,
because God means pure consciousness.
When the focus of the attention in the body is not in service to the ego-self
but only to the state of presence-consciousness-self,
and even onward from presence,
then at a certain stage we will be able to see
that even the state of presence itself
is perceived to be phenomenal.
But if this is not yet clear for you,
then first abide in the state of presence.
By transcending the ego-self in this way,
you will find that the usual troubles of the world,
such as those related to work, money, and relationships—
all the things that seem to become burdensome at times for the personal identity—
will be lightened up and gradually thin away as one awakens to the true Self.
Many things which we discover anew in life have already been there all along.
They have been there since time immemorial,
yet have merely gone unrecognised.
Therefore I say again:
When you wake up to full understanding, to the full realisation of the Self,
you see that it is nothing new.
The recognition may feel new,
but That which is recognised is timelessly present.
Your being is always complete, full, and whole.
It is not the size of your body.
It is also not the size of your thoughts,
but it will seem to become the size of your body and your thoughts
and be experienced that way
until the Self is ‘awakened’ to its true nature.
I am now inviting you to consciously embody,
fully acknowledge, welcome, and be your source Self,
which is the Christ-light, the Krishna Consciousness.
Simply leave aside all that arises in the mind
and remain as the intelligent space in which they arise.
BE THAT SPACE.
Don't waste time focusing on small things,
on trying to ‘over-clean your house’.
There are spots on the moon, but they do not affect its light.
Don't put too much energy into trying to get rid of small things.
Focus that energy instead on the source
from which even the mind and consciousness are observed to arise.
That is most powerful.
That is what I call ‘the one medicine for everything’,
because when your mind is focused on the Self,
the power of that has the capacity to bless every aspect of your expression
These things become self-evident and very clear inside.
As wisdom dawns and blossoms in your Heart,
it is like there is an angel within you that gives you right guidance—
the right approach without any sense of separation.
A Merry Christmas, a beautiful evening, and a beautiful day to you
wherever you are.
Not just a human day, but a day of God.
Not a day made of hours,
but a day full of grace.
It is our great joy to announce the release of the ebook of White Fire — a collection of some 800 sayings which encapsulate and compress Mooji's essential spiritual teachings into pill form.
We received many requests this year for the White Fire ebook and to celebrate its arrival we are offering a special price until 12 December.
If you feel in your heart to spread the word or to leave a book review please do so. Book reviews can be found here. Many thanks for all your heart-felt appreciation and support for Mooji’s beautiful books.
In loving service,

Several years ago, Sri Mooji visited the Arunachala Animal Sancturary in Tiruvannamalai and was deeply touched by the heart work that is taking place in service to the rescued animals brought to the centre almost on a daily basis.
The team's intense compassion, skill and loving care offered to the various animals was breath-taking. Sri Mooji felt compelled to support the ongoing work of this remarkable centre.
Today the Sanctuary is launching a month-long fundraising campaign for the whole of December and we invite you to visit their special webpage for the campaign:
"Within a field of love, our staff of 16 with two full-time vets, using traditional and alternative medicines, lift suffering from the over 5000 homeless dogs and the thousands of other animals in need – big, small, wild, domestic, owner, homeless (including birds and reptiles).
Our belief is that deep healing only takes place if a creature feels safe, cared for, and loved. Our extraordinary photo section tells it all. Take a look. It really is special."
With Love & Gratitude,
Satsang Intensive held via broadcast by Mooji Sangha Groups all around the world.

And of course, there is a great wealth of satsangs for you to absorb on Mooji.TV.
Space of Freedom (2015)
What is satsang? What is happiness? What is freedom? Is there anything unchanging? What is the role of the Guru in the search for Truth? These are some of the questions that documentary “Space of Freedom” addresses with the help of Sri Mooji and other interviewed seekers.
The documentary was filmed in Winter 2015 in Rishikesh, India during the five weeks of Open Satsang with Sri Mooji. It contains the unbeatable wisdom of the Master, beautiful imagery and heart-touching music.

When our attention is turned inwardly
and doesn’t rest on any form, any thought
any object, any emotion…
You’ll find our master right there.
For this reason I say, Papaji Is
Today we call everyone around the world
who has had the privilege
of meeting Papaji in form and in the Heart.
We are here because of Him.
We are as we are because of Him.
He has always reminded,
"Don’t give so much importance to the form.
I am the formless."
Om Sri Satguru Papaji Ki Jay!
In the Timeless
Now available in the online shop.
We are delighted to announce the release of The Mala of God – a book of prayers, blessings and drawings by Mooji.
The Mala of God is a spiritual gift, an expression of the grace-filled heart brimming with prayer, devotion, love and gratitude to the Supreme, yet it is imbued with the unsparing clarity and power of non-dual wisdom. With profound simplicity, Mooji unveils the intimate mystical ways of the praying heart and directly introduces the Formless to those yearning to discover their true nature and unity with the Awareness God-Self. Even one prayer fully absorbed is enough to set your heart free in the infinity of Being.
The Mala of God is available from satsang shop.
In loving service,
on the 8th of August 2015, final day
of the Silent Retreat in Monte Sahaja, Portugal

We give glory to God, the Absolute, the Supreme for what has taken place here in His presence and which cannot be undone. That the Supreme brought all of us in perfect timing and in accordance with His will, arranged this gathering so as to penetrate each heart and to bring each one in front of the face of God.
As each one goes his or her way may we carry the gracious perfume of the holy spirit.
May we keep joyfully merging our sense of separateness into the Supreme harmony.
May we grow into full recognition of the auspiciousness of our life lived in the consciousness of the One Self.
Let it be so for all time.
Om shanti shanti shanti shanti.
And may the tendencies of the lower nature which gravitates towards the flesh and form and is easily attached to the fickle things presented by the mind, be broken.
May those whose minds and bodies are bound by sicknesses also receive the grace and healing of the holy spirit.
And may the spirit of Truth increasingly reach into the hearts of all people, and raise humanity back to its proper standing and awareness; that we are the embodied forms of consciousness or the children of God.
May peace and perfect knowledge and understanding rain upon the earth in accordance to the will of God.
Let it be so.
Om shanti, shanti, shanti, shanti.
Let it be acknowledged as blessed that we are living and moving together on this planet as one human family growing in consciousness of our true nature as the timeless Self.
Let us be happy that we are contemporaries in the great search for the living and everlasting truth,
and that our chance to awaken is here and now.
The search for truth is as old as humanity itself and it continues today as we gather here as a fresh wave of humanity standing at the door of our own awakening.
May our spirits be fully revived and embody the spirit of Truth, which is our essential nature and being.
May each one carry in their heart the grace and the blessing of the Masters of all time
and all religions who have themselves realised the everliving truth and lived,
thereafter, for the education and spiritual upliftment of the human kingdom.
Let it be so for all time.
Om shanti shanti shanti om.
May it be so also that stubborn negative habits, stagnant or suppressed energies that we have been carrying, are laid at the feet of God today. May we cut the connection with egoic identity, the cause of suffering, and baptise our minds in the beauty and fragrance of the holy spirit of God who is Unborn Awareness.
Let it be so.
Om shanti shanti shanti.
