An Invitation to Freedom Ebook

An Invitation to Freedom is now available as an ebook. This powerful guidance that was originally offered in pocketbook and audiobook form was requested by many to be shared as an ebook, particularly as a digital format is easier for many in the current climate. Previously available only in the US and Canada, we are happy to be able to now share it worldwide. An Invitation to Freedom is a living master key to Self-realisation. The profoundly clear and direct pointing cuts effortlessly through the superficial veils that appear to hide our true nature and swiftly introduces the mind to its source, the Heart. The Invitation is quick, simple and powerful. Follow its guidance earnestly, and you will find yourself Home. This could be the greatest discovery you will make in your life. You can find An Invitation to Freedom ebook in our Mooji Sangha Shop,  as well as Apple Books and Amazon Kindle. ‘If you are longing for Self-discovery and the urge to be free is alive and compelling, this Invitation is for you. Grace has put this yearning inside your heart, and so it is possible to come to this direct recognition without delay.  It works, it works, it works—yesterday, today, tomorrow and always.’~ Mooji

Suspension of Activities at Monte Sahaja ~ Satsang will Continue Online

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to unfold, we have had to make an unprecedented decision about Monte Sahaja, the ashram and retreat centre in Portugal. The pandemic has had strong repercussions for many around the world, and Monte Sahaja has also been significantly affected. Thankfully we have not had any cases of COVID-19 in Monte Sahaja or our local community; however, we have been facing many of the changes and challenges that have come alongside the pandemic.  With restrictions on large gatherings for the foreseeable future, the uncertain nature of travel, and considering the health and well-being of travellers to and from Portugal, it has become clear that many of our activities will need to be suspended for some time, particularly (but not only) those related to our programs and guests. We have looked carefully at many scenarios, and in this climate it is simply not possible for us to continue to operate in the same way or support many of the services previously offered.  Moojibaba will of course continue to offer Satsang from Monte Sahaja for the worldwide Sangha. These will be shared through Mooji TV and YouTube, as well as on Sahaja Express and through Online Retreats. However, many of the additional activities and operations are no longer sustainable during this time, and Monte Sahaja will remain closed. A small group of caretakers will stay on at Sahaja to maintain and take care of the land and facilities, and also to continue to support the sharing of Satsang. We will use this time to improve the ashram’s services and infrastructure until such time as we are truly ready to open again. This will continue into the foreseeable future and is likely to remain in place for some extended time. We will keep you updated as to where we are in this process.  We are a close-knit community and this will affect us deeply. We will do everything in our power to take care that the transition is smooth for our community. While this is clearly a challenging time for everyone, we know in our hearts that this is the right decision and trust that the outcome will also bear fruit in many unimaginable ways.  Living alongside Moojibaba, we are deeply inspired by him as a living example of the realisation of the Self and by his natural trust in God. In this time, as in any other, he truly embodies the intuitiveness and spontaneity he points us to, meeting life freshly and openly without any personal intention, no matter what life brings. He says, “Yes, there will be many changes, both external and internal, but I encourage you to face them in the light and spirit of pure consciousness and not personally. This will truly be an inspiring time for every true seeker—a time of renewal and a call for a fresh vision. Every trial or crisis has its hidden gems. Sometimes you have to be shaken to awaken, as Truth is what you seek. Trust and remain true to what you have discovered inside your heart. This Sangha tree will continue to bear many good fruits. I ask that each one remain in the heart and continue to stand in and with the Truth you have come to know and Be.” The team also draws great strength from the love and care shown by the worldwide Sangha, who are very much present in our hearts now and always. Thank you all and much love,Monte Sahaja [quote_section quote="Barns burn down. Now the sky is seen." left_brush="yes"]

70th MAHASAMADHI OF SRI RAMANA MAHARSHI

30 December 1879 - 14 April 1950 Today we honour, celebrate and give thanks for the great sage of Arunachala, Sri Ramana Maharshi. Revered as one of the most prominent spiritual Masters from India, the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi continue to inspire thousands of people and bring them into the discovery of the Self, one’s true nature. We venerate Bhagavan's presence and Grace which, to this day, nourishes the hearts of devotees and seekers of Truth all over the world. Moojibaba has tremendous love and respect for this saint, whose teachings he absorbed deeply in the heart through Satsang with Sri Poonjaji, a student of Sri Ramana. This account comes from Sri Ramanasramam, telling of Bhagavan’s last days in his physical form: “On April 14, 1950 it was apparent that Sri Ramana’s physical end was near, in spite of intense medical care he received since the sarcoma in his left arm was detected. In the evening, as the devotees sat on the verandah outside the room which had been specially built for Bhagavan’s convenience during his illness, they spontaneously began singing ‘Arunachala Siva’ (The Marital Garland of Letters). On hearing it Ramana’s eyes opened and shone. He gave a brief smile of indescribable tenderness. From the outer corners of his eyes tears of bliss rolled down. One more deep breath and no more. “At that very moment 8:47 p.m. what appeared to be an enormous star trailed slowly across the sky passing to the north-east towards the peak of Arunachala. Many saw this luminous body in the sky, even as far away as Bombay and struck by its peculiar appearance and behaviour, they ascribed this phenomenon to the passing of their Master. “To this day the power of Sri Ramana has not diminished. Often visitors to the ashram have remarked, ‘But one can feel his presence very strongly.’ Before Sri Ramana gave up his body, devotees went to him and begged him to remain for a while longer as they needed his help. He replied “Go! Where can I go? I shall always be here.” ‘That which is born must die;that which is acquired must be lost. Were you born? You are ever existent.The Self can never be lost.’ ~ Sri Ramana Maharshi

Mooji Answers During the Coronavirus Pandemic

In light of the coronavirus pandemic, many from all around the world have written letters to Moojibaba with questions, doubts and concerns arising during this challenging time, particularly in relation to the search for Truth.A special series of Mooji Answers videos is being released over the coming days to answer some of the many messages that have come. In this first session, Through This Confinement You Can Be Set Free, Mooji responds with great insight and love to a broad range of questions, including the stress and panic arising for some in response to the coronavirus, the fear of loneliness, self-inquiry and gratitude, and the common difficulties that may arise when meditating. He also shares how life has given this space away from the usual distractions and encourages us to see this time as a powerful opportunity to wake up to our true nature. “I want to tell you, all that happens in the world, from the greatest to the smallest things, are somehow held in God consciousness. Don’t cling to the initial reaction from your mind that you are imprisoned. Actually I’d like you to change it and think that you are being set free to spend a little time with yourself, to examine what really is here. Many wonderful things are going to come. I wish you all good health, and openness of heart, and a great life now, and a great life to come also, here on this Earth."Monte Sahaja, Portugal 1 April 2020 News and Resources You can find a dedicated page with guided meditations, news and other resources here.

Message from Mooji about COVID-19

It is a challenging time for many around the world, and we would like to share with you some resources, especially a touching talk where Mooji addresses the growing concerns we face as a human race in the light of the coronavirus pandemic. In this message he offers great encouragement on the topic of fear, and shares guidance on how to stay true and wake up in this time of crisis. “I see that this time, challenging as it is, is also offering us a new path; a path of Grace. Life is offering us an opportunity to go within. The love of God serves every living being. So Grace is here to guide us through difficult times.I pray from my heart that each one will grow inwardly. That we come to a higher level of life in the true sense. That we see with more a unitive sense that we are one family, living together with greater love and understanding. Bless you, bless you, each and every one.”~ Mooji Guided Meditations, News and ResourcesYou can find a dedicated page with guided meditations, news and other resources here.

Coronavirus Update about Monte Sahaja & Lisbon Intensive

As you may know, there has been an outbreak of a new, infectious coronavirus called COVID-19. It began in China several months ago, and is now affecting other countries throughout the world. The health and wellbeing of everyone is of great importance to us and we have been carefully monitoring the situation since it came to our attention in late January.  With a growing number of people affected worldwide, including outbreaks throughout Europe, we feel it is wise to cancel the Lisbon Satsang Intensive (29 April - 3 May) and also close Monte Sahaja for some time. This closing begins now, and means that we will not be offering the Guest and Extended Stay programs that were scheduled for March to May. We are also implementing a 14-day self-quarantine for the team returning to Monte Sahaja and the local area who were supporting the recent Open Satsangs in India or travelling elsewhere recently. These precautionary measures are being taken to support and protect the health and wellbeing of our local community and also the Sangha to the best of our ability. We feel these are the responsible steps to be taken at this time, which are truly in the best interests of everyone, especially those who would participate in our events and programs, and those who live in Portugal and our local area, many of whom are elderly and therefore more vulnerable at this time.  We hope you will join us in praying for the health and wellbeing of all who have been or will be affected by the virus, wherever they are in the world. May its growth and impact diminish quickly; may the sick recover to newfound strength; may we all use this challenging time to continue growing in ourselves, to discover the power and grace of the eternal light within us.  Our Prayer “Let us offer prayers and blessings for all people and all nations of the Earth. Let us bless that, though intense, this will also become a time of conscious awakening and healing for everyone. We know, from the lessons of history, that great difficulties, disasters and challenging times also can strengthen and unify us by dissolving the differences that appear to divide us. Calamities often strengthen us internally, making us more deeply aware of the highest values of life.Troubling times encourages us to work together, to genuinely care for each other.Such events make us more aware of our collective strength when we work together as one united human family.May we grow in unity, love and understanding. The Lord’s Blessings be upon all people and nations affected at this time.May governments and all helpers move in an inspired, co-operative and harmonious way,so that collectively we are able to put right whatever needs to be put right within our capacity.Our prayer is that this disease comes to an end soon.We believe, trust, know this will happen. This is a prayer for our entire world and its leaders. We pray that the greater, higher Truth which dwells inside us allraise us up in conscious awareness of our true nature and Beingso that we become more kind, more open, more loving, wise, peaceful and powerful in the Truth we are. May we live fully in the joy of our real nature in accordance with the will of the Supreme God Almighty.”~ Moojibaba

Sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar Mahasamadhi

Today is the anniversary of the Mahasamadhi of the great sage, Sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar, also known as the 'Divine Beggar' and the God-child of Arunachala.We love, recognise and honour Sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar, one of the most revered sages of India, whose spirit touched thousands of people, and whose grace continues to shower blessings upon all. Moojibaba met Yogi Ram in Tiruvannamalai in 1994, and from their first meeting to this very day, Moojibaba has a deep heart connection, love and respect for this great saint. "The most essential and important thing in our life is that we should have faith in God, absolute faith in God. If we do not have Guru Bhakti and faith in God, whatever we may possess is of no use. If we have Guru Bhakti and the blessings of the Guru, then it is more than sufficient and it is more than what we can possess materially in this world. "Do all the work, in the world, but keep your mind always on the Almighty, the creator of all things and you can never go wrong. "Always remember God. Each and every event, everywhere, is by His Will alone and is for our own good. Each thing in our lives is always only Blessing, even though it may not appear so, at the time." ~ Sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar Yogi Ramsuratkumar Ashram Moojibaba sharing about his encounter with Sri Yogi Ram Photos of Moojibaba's visit to Yogi Ramsuratkumar Ashram, January 2020 You can read here a beautiful account of the life of Sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar
