London – Silent Intensive with Sri Mooji – November 2014

Silent Intensive with Sri Mooji in London
7th to 11th November, 2014

Retreat with Mooji

“Don't worry about anything at all.
You are not here by accident, but by the will of the Supreme Self.
This present form is just a costume for a while.
But the one who is behind the costume,
this one is timeless, wise, joyous and whole.
You must know this.
As you discover this you will spontaneously trust this
and so be free from all worries and all sorrows.

This world is so full of love.
And your heart, your being is so full of love, so full of peace.
You don't have to go to some place else to find peace.
It is right where you are.
Satsang helps you to recognise this.
Welcome!”
~ Mooji

Silent Intensive

Sri Mooji introduces Satsang as the most effective aid for the recognition of the timeless Truth which is our true reality. His presence, guidance and words encourage, challenge and never fail to illuminate.

At times humorous, at times tender, occasionally sharp and always loving, the master responds to the questioners as they speak of fear, suffering, confusion, relationships, spiritual practice and how to live their lives in wisdom and peace.

It is Sri Mooji's unsparing and non-dual pointing to Truth, through the method of self-inquiry, which forms the essence of these Satsangs. His words act like an unsparing sword that cuts through the mind's misconceptions and delusions and leaves you fully naked as your pure Self.

Satsang is not a place to please your mind. It will dethrone the mind and set your Heart free. All are welcome to step into this fire of self-discovery. The master encourages all sincere seekers: "This fire will not burn you, it will burn only what you are not".

During, before and after the Satsang sessions we will move in an atmosphere of silence.

Om Shanti


Guidelines

  • Mooji highly appreciates your questions concerning truth. He encourages everyone to follow the prompting of the heart and present whatever is burning within during satsang. He will not receive questions afterwards. You may also submit your thoughts or questions by letter.
  • Please honour and respect the silence before, during and after the satsang. Keep your interactions with others to a minimum, so to be immersed fully in the satsang. Take all necessary interactions outside the building.
  • All satsangs are recorded and can be ordered in the Sangha Shop. Those wishing to have a copy of any session can visit the shop in the hall, after Satsang.
  • Switch off your mobiles phones or tablets completely during Satsang. Even a muted phone can interfere with the sound.
  • Do not take photos or videos inside the Satsang Hall. We have designated photographers and will post photos on the website.

Satsong Concert

The Mooji Dana Team is pleased to offer an opportunity for Intensive participants, their friends and family, and everyone who feels drawn to come, to have Satsang in the form of music and praises to the Supreme - Bhajans!

Bhajans are devotional songs that repeat the different names of the Divine and evoke in us the various aspects of the One Supreme Being — our true source and timeless essence. Chanting the holy names merges the mind in the limitless Heart, thus allowing love and gratitude to flow naturally. We invite everyone to sing and dance with us this evening with full heart and joy.

Mooji Dana, as we feel it, is the essential oneness of giving and receiving. The team exists to create opportunities for all to get involved and join in the activities around Satsang. It is synonymous with Seva (selfless service).

There will be a live broadcast of the Satsong Concert, free and open to all.
To join, simply tune in at broadcast time to the Live Satsang page on the mooji.org website.
Click here to view world times for this Satsong Concert.

For those of you who cannot watch the broadcast live, we will provide a link to the recorded Satsang some time after the broadcast is finished, on the Live Satsang page.

We invite you to donate freely from your heart, whether you are joining the Intensive physically in London or watching from home, or if you are drawn to support Satsang with Sri Mooji. It is due to the generosity of the International Sangha that we have been able to share Sri Mooji's pointings with so many hearts around the world. Thank you!
