Darshan is the blessing received in the sacred presence of an awakened being, a divine entity or image.

Many thousands of people who have watched Mooji, a spiritual teacher from the non-dual path to enlightenment, have experienced his wisdom, love and power through being in his physical presence or through the hundreds of internet broadcasts shared by his Sangha team. Often, at the beginning and end of these intimate and intense gatherings, the Master would look into the camera for a few seconds. Through his gaze, he makes contact with his many followers worldwide and draws each one into his continuing love, guiding support and reassuring presence.

It spontaneously arose to call these moments Mooji Darshan.

We receive many requests from people around the world whose main spiritual guidance is experienced through these Sunday satsangs, spontaneous meetings and retreats, all lovingly captured on film. Mooji Sangha is presenting this short video, Mooji Darshan, in response to the call to meet and look into the Master’s eyes directly. We hope you will feast your eyes, minds and hearts as we do.

Inseparable love,
Mooji Sangha AV Team

Moojibaba’s Words Before Entering His Silent Retreat NEW
thumb image

Many years ago, when these profound changes began taking place in my life, I suddenly found myself spending a lot of time on my own. I had the opportunity, in those days, to just sit by myself in undisturbed peace and silence. It was not my intention or decision to do this. I just went along with what felt right inside my heart and being. It all felt as though God had arranged it like this. Quite a long time passed in silent introspection and self-awareness. Little attention was left for anything else. I lived in a kind of timeless state cocooned inside this silent, blessed feeling of being.

Over 25 years have passed since, and I realise I have not taken any time to just sit by myself. I know that it was absorption in the power and continuous flow of grace from the Supreme Being that makes all this possible here and now. This time of deep immersion in the Self made all these years of travelling around the world sharing Satsang possible. It is still here today in service to your own awakening. I have shared with some of you that an urge has been steadily arising within to rest again inside my own heart-retreat. I do not have any grand ideas or projections about the fruits it will yield.

Here I am extending this invitation to you, my Sangha, to enter into your own inner retreat over this coming month or so. Most of you, of course, have activities and work that must continue, but at the same time I encourage you to be in this inner state and to stay very conscious of the Self even while the outer activities go on. Spend time really sitting and imbibing what I have pointed to as your true nature and position as the unchanging, unmoving awareness. It is not difficult. The pointing is very straightforward, very clean, very clear, but you need to sit with it and not be impatient. And watch…not only the things which keep coming and going but That which does not come and go—the awareness Self. Be one with That for it is not separate from you. Notice that your work and daily activities are spontaneously flowing even better as you keep your mind inside your heart.

This invitation is for all who seek the Truth and are in the hearing of this, wherever you are. Take this chance to keep your attention inside the heart of being. Each time the mind drifts away bring it back to silent, formless awareness. Inside, you must remain, know and confirm yourself as the unmoving One. And this harmony between the unmanifest and the manifest as one integral wholeness will reveal itself as your fundamental nature. Gradually, pure understanding will transmute into final awakening.

Nothing learnt in this world stays with you profoundly if it only stays in your mind as concepts. You must drink my words and pointers in deeply. It is like when you are in love, you welcome and embrace love totally inside so it becomes one with your being. This falling in love-ness, this internalising of the attention, is a very natural thing. It is not a wasteful movement. It is not a personal attainment. It is a universal impulse expanding and expressing itself as blessedness and love to the world.
Being aware of the Self compels and propels us out of the ignorant role and state of personhood and into Universal Consciousness. So while daily life unfolds, I am encouraging you to keep your attention immersed in the source which is your true Self.

Finally, please give this your full-hearted attention: continue growing in your love, respect and service to one another. It is a very mature and illumined Sangha that learns from and inspires each other towards full awakening to the timeless Truth. A true Sangha supports and encourages this truthfulness and integrity to face what is true and what is false without sacrificing the love, harmony and deep respect that are the perfume of the One Self. Without love, there is no Sangha and no real life. I do not know if there is anywhere else on this planet where love, wisdom and Truth are so profoundly alive and venerated as here inside the Sahaja-Heart.

Beloved ones, don’t waste your life pursuing the ephemeral. Transcend ego. Don’t miss your chance.

Timeless love
Moojibaba

Monte Sahaja, Portugal.

Monte Sahaja – Winter Closing
thumb image

Beloveds,

After a rich and profound season of retreats and satsangs with Mooji Baba, it is time for a period of rest and deep meditation and introspection for our beloved Master and the Sangha team serving at Monte Sahaja.

In light of this, there are no Sunday Satsangs scheduled until Spring 2017, providing the opportunity for each one of us to evaluate the strength and fruits of our own inquiry, as we are compelled by our own desire to directly digest and assimilate the Master’s pointings.

This time is also to provide the opportunity for each one of us to evaluate the strength and fruits of our own inquiry, as we are compelled by our own desire to directly digest and assimilate the Master’s pointings.

During this winter period, we will also continue to upload new material on Mooji TV and Sahaja Express.

Mooji Baba shares this with you, ‘I am always with you internally; I cannot always be with you physically. Now I should be able to speak with you in a more mature way as you yourself can listen with more maturity. If you have been walking with me, you should now be strong enough to be by yourself as conscious presence. I am very happy to see that flourishing take place in you. My face will always turn towards the ones who are flowering through my guidance and teachings. I will water them and look after them. The energy of life will always go to nurture the earnest seeker. A simple, yet consistent, maturing in the recognition of your real position and nature is all that needs to take place inside of you.’

May each one shine with the pure light of Self-recognition and inspire the search for the highest in all beings they encounter.

With deep love and gratitude,
Mooji Sangha team

Sahaja Express

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.

About the Aarti ceremony before Satsang
thumb image

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.

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.

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.

PARTING WORDS from MOOJIBABA

20160322rishikeshfinalwords
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.

Gifts for Mooji

Mooji receives many beautiful gifts and every gesture is deeply appreciated. However, his humble living space is really too small to hold all of these offerings and he already has all that he needs. So we ask to please not send him any personal gifts.

Mooji loves planting trees at Monte Sahaja. If you feel you would like to show your love and gratitude by offering a gift, you can donate to Mooji Foundation to help pay for a tree or to help with the sharing of Satsang with beings around the world.

You can make your gift at the donation page. Please choose ‘Wherever most needed’ from the drop down menu and add ‘plant a tree’ in the Paypal comment box.

Thank you for your understanding and for all your donations to Mooji Foundation.

Love,

Arunachala Animal Sanctuary

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.
