Swami Swatantranand Ashram, Rishikesh, India
Nothing on this earth or in the heavenly realms can overwhelm or overcome you when you know who you truly are. Your true Self is perfect, complete and unchanging. In Satsang, a gathering in Truth, this discovery is made possible. Welcome to Satsang.
We are deeply honoured that Mooji has been invited by Buddleia Media Pvt Ltd to host a four week Satsang event in Rishikesh, India, in 2020.
These four weeks of Satsang with Mooji offer a powerful opportunity to be immersed in the energy field of Satsang. The Satsangs are free and open for everyone who is called to discover who they truly are. During Satsang, Mooji speaks with seekers of Truth as they bring forward any burning questions, doubts and testimonies in relation to their search for lasting peace, joy and liberation.
Mooji is a true light in this world, whose presence, wisdom and loving guidance point us to who we are beyond the limitations of our conditioning and identity. In open interactions with this great spiritual Master, seekers of Truth from all backgrounds and traditions are introduced to the direct path to freedom through self-inquiry and The Invitation—which is proving to be one of the most effective aids for true and lasting Self-discovery.
Universal in his appeal, Mooji’s wisdom, compassion, openness and humour profoundly touch the hearts of those who meet him, thereby inspiring each one to find within themselves the deep peace, love and silence they recognise in him. Every human being has this eternal purity inside, and in Satsang it is being unveiled.
Satsangs begin on Wednesday, 12 February and are free and open to all. Satsangs are generally scheduled from Wednesday to Sunday (not Monday or Tuesday) from 10:00 – 12:00. This may change so please check here closer to the date. Everyone attending Satsang must arrange their own food and accommodation.
If you would like to help before or during the Satsang season please come to Swami Swatantranand Ashram on 3 & 4 February between 10:00–12:00 or 14:00–16:00 pm, to let us know about your availability.
Satsang with Mooji is for those who are genuinely drawn to Self-discovery. This environment is not for the merely curious, but for those with a sincere and wholehearted commitment to Self-discovery. It is possible to attend any or all of the Satsangs throughout the season.
We highly recommend that everyone who is considering attending first watch these important videos:

There are two ways to participate in the Open Satsangs with Mooji in Rishikesh. You can come to the event to be in Mooji’s physical presence, or you can join the free live Internet broadcast through Mooji TV.
Attending physically at Rishikesh
Being in the physical presence of a living Master and fully immersing yourself in the energy field of Satsang is a rare and blessed opportunity. Mooji’s loving and unfathomable presence itself can trigger transformation in one who is ripe for awakening. If you are drawn to attend in person, please make sure you have read and agree to follow the above guidelines.
Watching online via live Internet broadcast
If you are unable to attend physically at Rishikesh, joining via live Internet broadcast is an excellent alternative. Open Satsang with Mooji in Rishikesh will be broadcast live for free. You do not need to register to watch the online broadcast. You can watch the live broadcasts and the recordings on Mooji TV.
For Mooji there is no separation, no distance to those joining online and he sees absolutely no hindrance or disadvantage to your awakening in attending in this way.

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas on the banks of the sacred Ganga River, Rishikesh has been a centre of spiritual and religious activities since ancient times. Rishi, meaning ‘seer’, was a name given to monks living in caves in the surrounding hills, the holy men to whom the Vedas (Hindu scriptures) were originally revealed.
Today, Rishikesh is known as the world capital of yoga. It is home to many internationally renowned ashrams and countless meditation, yoga and spiritual courses.
