Monte Sahaja

The Centre for Self-Realisation in Portugal

Sahaja is not merely a physical place, Sahaja is your natural state. All beings come to rest here in the heart of hearts itself, it is your place. Welcome home!


MONTE SAHAJA IS CLOSED FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2021
Monte Sahaja will remain closed over the Autumn and Winter. This means that it is not possible to come for visits of any kind, including day visits or shorter guest stays. Even though restrictions are easing in Portugal, this closure is very likely to stay in place until Spring, 2022.

Monte Sahaja

Monte Sahaja is a Centre for Self-Realisation for mature and genuine seekers of Truth drawn to spiritual awakening. The word ‘Sahaja’ means the natural state of Being, and Monte Sahaja is a sacred place dedicated to supporting true seekers who deeply aspire for liberation from the grip of ego identity. It is a rare place in this world as it is entirely dedicated to the complete realisation of the Self.

Mooji’s lineage is Advaita, the ancient path of non-duality, which teaches that our true nature is one with the pure awareness that is the indivisible reality. Through his intuitive and direct approach, Moojibaba imparts this understanding as a living experience with great immediacy and accessibility to seekers of Truth.

Awakening to our real nature does not mean we are to acquire something new, but rather that we must discover within ourselves that which is timelessly pure and in harmony with God. Therefore, there is no need to renounce one’s family, worldly duties, ambitions, religion or any other human expression. It is this very universality, simplicity and naturalness that draws people to Satsang with Moojibaba.

Sahaja Precepts
Living and working alongside Moojibaba in Monte Sahaja has given rise to the Sahaja Precepts. ‘Sahaja’ refers to ‘the natural state of being’ and these precepts are an essential guidance for all who are in search of that which is the highest and most true within themselves.

About the Land

Monte Sahaja is situated in the hilly region of Alentejo in southern Portugal. Its varied terrain offers many beautiful spaces to explore, such as small ponds, hidden paths and vistas, and quiet places for meditation and contemplation.

Springtime at Monte Sahaja is a glorious season where wildflowers flourish profusely over the savanna-like landscape. There are also many Olive trees, Cork Oaks, Medronhos, Carobs and Eucalyptus trees on the land and in the surrounding area. The fresh springtime breeze is often fragranced by an amazing palette of wild and traditional flowers and the smell of Eucalyptus trees. Moojibaba enjoys this time of the year very much.

During the summer months, Alentejo becomes very hot and the lush landscape of spring and early summer begins turning in colour to raw sienna and umber. Some say they are reminded of the African Serengeti or certain regions of Australia. Alentejanos are well used to the destructive wildfires that are easily started during the driest months. Monte Sahaja fully supports and complies with the local and regional efforts to keep fires to a minimum. We also endeavour to conserve water wherever we can.

More Information About the Closure
We fully appreciate the natural urge to come to Monte Sahaja. It is usually possible for those who are deeply immersed in Satsang with Moojibaba to apply to visit Monte Sahaja.

However, as we are closed, it is not possible to visit in any way. This is very likely to last until Spring, 2022. We will post any changes to this situation here as soon as anything is confirmed.

We would also like to thank the Sangha very much for your love, care and support during this time. Although it is a time of great change, it is also an opportunity for deep introspection. We encourage all those drawn to Satsang with Moojibaba to make full use of the many online resources, including Sahaja Express and the free media on Mooji TV.
