Voices from Satsang

Experiences and Insights from Satsang with Mooji and life in Monte Sahaja

Hello Sahaja!

We would like to introduce some of the team who support the worldwide sharing of Satsang with Moojibaba. This would not be possible without the spirit of selfless service that flows so generously from their hearts, and which continues to inspire, refine and uplift the spirit and life of the worldwide Sangha. Those seen here are among the many who through Satsang have changed in deep and profound ways. We rarely have the opportunity to hear from all, as many of them serve behind the scenes. We hope you enjoy and resonate with these few words from them. Welcome to Hello Sahaja!


In this candid talk, Moojibaba is interviewed by some of his students. Many who have had the opportunity to work with Moojibaba feel him to be an integral part of their team, and we are delighted to include this interview on the Hello Sahaja! page. He is asked questions like ‘How did Monte Sahaja come about?’, ‘What is a good student?’, ‘How do you experience yourself?’ and ‘What is this life all about?’ Moojibaba responds with humour and insight to speak about Monte Sahaja, discipleship, the paradox of self-realisation, and our true and essential nature. ‘My Self is just like a vast expanse of emptiness that is with this body right now. Without doing anything, I’m not trying to enjoy, but I can’t help but enjoy. My life is just joy and peace. That’s the foundation, that is the background and the foreground also. My life is like that.’


In this wonderful interview, Lakshmi speaks about her first meeting with Moojibaba, the early days of Monte Sahaja, witnessing her own and the Sangha’s spiritual evolution, and how Moojibaba is in day-to-day life. Lakshmi gives us a unique and insightful look into the heart of Moojibaba and Monte Sahaja from a close devotee over the perspective of many years.  ‘[Meeting Mooji] was one of those events in your life that you know your life is going to change forever... and it really did, in the most profound, beautiful, Godly way.’ ‘What makes Sahaja so magical is that it’s been built by a living, awakened Master and those of us that have come to learn from him. The whole space has been built on our Satsang, with our Satsang. From the very beginning that relationship has been there—with the land as well—this deep respect and love for the land and the people that come.’


In this insightful and engaging interview, Siddhartha shares about his journey to Satsang after an awakening experience led to significant changes in his life. He goes on to speak about how it is to be in Monte Sahaja, how Satsang has impacted and enriched his relationship with his wife, the changes he has seen in himself since meeting Mooji, and the inspiration he draws from seeing Moojibaba move in day to day life. ‘Mooji is just so open with everyone... it is like they are the center of his entire universe. And the real beauty in that is that he is not the center of his own universe. It is like they have become everything for him, and they feel it so deeply.  How can you give so much of yourself constantly to others? And in such a way that’s not contrived, but it just flows so genuinely from the heart—everything in his presence has this magnificent love behind it. I just pray that we can become like that; to me this is the real proof of everything he is pointing to.’


‘My God, such a simple pointing and guidance! It was even playful the way he put it — what a revolution inside myself.’ Govinda speaks in a very clear and straightforward way about how he first came to Satsang, and what his experience has been of Mooji’s satsangs and living in Monte Sahaja. He reflects on how Mooji’s very simple pointings have had such an immediate and liberating power for him. He also speaks about getting a spiritual name, and what this meant for him. Govinda ends his interview with a poignant story about encountering the idea of infinity as a child, and reflects on how this early seed of awakening eventually led him to Satsang.

Shiva Shankar

‘I felt like I had a thirst for a long time, and for the first time in my life, it was quenched.’ In this simple yet profound interview, Shiva Shankar speaks of a strong experience that first brought him to meet Moojibaba, how his team and way of working at Monte Sahaja are so unlike previous work experiences, and the powerful event that led him to receive his new name.  Shiva Shankar also reflects on what it’s like to move so closely with Mooji and speaks about how everything he does is permeated with a love for Truth and Satsang.  ‘He is not a master for Satsang, he is a master 24 hours a day. He always takes care of everybody in the most loving way… the care for everybody is always in his mind first. When you’re close to him you see that he’s not teaching you a theory, his being is teaching you, his way of being with people… This love and great peace is always with him.’


Mahima’s joy and wisdom shine through in this intimate interview. Mahima speaks about the blessing of working closely with Mooji, the vibration of Monte Sahaja and those who live there, the spiritual teaching of death, and the essence of Mooji’s teaching. ‘It’s the most natural vibe, you can say. It’s the most natural you. It’s you before ‘you.’ To be able to be guided by a living Master to that place in this lifetime is… full gratitude for this life! You could spend millions of lifetimes and not know this Truth.’

Sangha Sharings

In this collection of short videos, people whose lives have been enriched by Satsang share their experience of participating in events around the world, visiting Monte Sahaja, and being and deepening in Satsang with Moojibaba.


With a quiet joy and presence, Fabian reflects on the core of Moojibaba’s pointings and what they’ve revealed inside his heart.  “I was suddenly feeling so happy and everything dropped away. In this moment, I knew who Guruji is and I knew that’s what I am inside truly.” Video of 'I-watching' can be found here


In this reflection, Rohini shares about the grace of her first meeting with Mooji, how his pointings have resonated inside her and the beauty and living truth that is Monte Sahaja.  “He tells you it’s possible today. This is the essential pointing which made me feel, Yes now the journey is over, I can just stop here. That’s the grace of a living master. When you stop, you stop in restfulness. Sahaja is a manifestation of his pointings. He’s telling you about love and freedom, but you come here and you see, it’s alive here.”


Julie describes how being in Satsang has greatly benefited the relationship with her family and has transformed the way she experiences life.   “I kept remembering Mooji’s words, that if you can perceive it, it’s not you, and this space opened up. So much love and peace came into my life. I didn’t know this peace and love was possible and that it’s inside me, where Moojibaba points us to.”


In this touching sharing, Nikki talks about her connection with Moojibaba and how all of the challenges in her life have served as an opportunity to come home to her true self.  “I just felt in my heart a closeness to Mooji and a deep place of gratitude. My heart said, I’m home. That’s what this life has been for, to come home. That was the invitation."

Meera & Anand

This is a beautiful interview where both Meera and her son Anand speak from the heart about Satsang with Moojibaba. Meera shares the profound seeing that has taken place through following his pointings and the recognition that life takes care of life.  In speaking of how Satsang has helped him, Anand shares, “It’s simple. Once you make a discovery that everyone is the one Self, then everything becomes so much easier.”


Shruti reflects on what it’s like to be at Monte Sahaja and of her inner experience in following Moojibaba’s pointings.  “I can’t describe it in words but it’s a gentle form of love. And there’s such silence. You feel it vibrationally. For me, it’s heaven. Things have just become so effortless. There’s a real sense of stillness; I feel very content.”


“This life has changed incredibly since I crossed paths with Moojibaba. There is a deep joy, and love and appreciation for myself, gratitude for life that just springs naturally from the grace of his sharing and the following of his pointings and guidance. I have never in my life met another human being whose guidance and words have landed with such profound clarity and deep trust.”


Char shares how she journeyed on the spiritual path and her experience when she encountered Moojibaba and the Invitation. “…something combusted into spirit. All the theories, all the concepts became the living experience of my life. My life was not awful before. It was actually quite beautiful. But compared to now, there’s no comparison.”


“I couldn’t believe how clear Mooji’s voice was and how still his presence was...I couldn’t believe there was this man who was so effortlessly focused. He helps us to see something that is undeniably there. He asks not for belief, not for something that is ‘later on’. It is something you verify as your Self. We are studying the reality of our Self, and we are investigating all of our ideas about who we are. We are suffering from something that we take ourselves to be but we are not. The spiritual process is to uncover and come into this place where you really are. It is to discover yourself without conflict.”


Nihal shares how lingering dissatisfaction, despite running a successful business, led him to the spiritual path and the fulfilment he had been searching for all his life. He recounts the initial struggles he, like many others, came across and how profound understanding was more simple than he thought. "I don't have to fix myself. I just have to find out who I am"


With simplicity, honesty and openness, Jesse speaks about his relationship with Mooji, the impact of satsang in his life and the inexplicable gratitude that naturally arises when one comes to the discovery that Mooji points us to. "These satsangs speak on behalf of you. It’s a shared truth and knowledge that Mooji is sharing…It’s your birthright to be free and know your self beyond the conditioned mind." Jesse refers to the satsang video "Are you the Seer or the Seen?" which can be viewed here.


Govinda reflects on his first experience of Satsang with Moojibaba and the powerful impact and transformation it has had on his life. “For the first time in my life I experienced what ‘to look inside’ means. It was like an immediate baptism. It was a completely different way of experiencing existence. It was so fresh and true.” Govinda refers to the satsang video: "Can the Seer be Seen"


In this interview, Gayatri shares openly about what it is like to work closely with Moojibaba.  “He works in such an intuitive and spontaneous way and so selflessly. That’s one of the things I’m so struck about and inspired by. When he works, it’s just joy, pure joy. I find Guruji so powerful and so amazing because of how simple his teaching is. There is this space that is totally unmoving. See what life is like from here.”


In this interview, Dr. Sanjay shares about his experience from his time at Monte Sahaja. “It’s inclusive of everything, this is the best thing about this place. It’s a very open place.”


In this delightful encounter, we hear Amar speak about the early days of Satsang with Mooji and his life around Monte Sahaja and the local village.  Amar also describes what it has been like to witness the ashram evolve over time: “It’s a total transformation, there’s nothing on this planet like this... it’s pretty amazing.”


Thor reflects on how Satsang has deeply changed him and shares about a powerful and touching encounter with Moojibaba that has stayed with him ever since. "A lot of peace and a natural sense of contentment has expressed itself in my heart.”


Sudeep describes his experience of meeting and spending time with Moojibaba and how his understanding inside deepened when he came to Satsang.   “You see that living truth in Baba (Mooji), which I love because it’s so rare. He’s living that Truth. It doesn’t matter if he’s in front of 3,000 people or just in front of me - he’s the same beautiful nothingness, emptiness and beauty… that unconditional love.”


Ravi talks about how he has been reading the scriptures for a long time, but with Moojibaba's pointings these words have become experience and have transformed him and his family’s life.   “Mooji has given me the greatest gift anyone could give. He has gifted me to me.”


In this brief and heartfelt sharing, Michelle speaks about her discovery of finding Moojibaba inside her heart. “When Mooji talks in Satsang, he talks to me directly. He is actually in my heart. What he is showing us is what is in us and it’s who we are, it’s who he is."


This beautiful sharing takes place on the banks of the Ganga. Lorana expresses how true healing has come as she has learned to discover her place as the observing presence.  “When you are the observer, life takes care of itself.”


Murali shares in such a simple and direct way how applying Moojibaba’s pointings has benefited his day to day life. “Guruji’s guidance and pointings are making such difference in our lives.”


A member of the Delhi sangha reads a truly moving poem, honouring the life and work of Moojibaba. “How has this land come to be?It is the intent of our Master that we all walk freeIt’s an end to the drama and to the strife,O what a sacred, blessed life.”


Pablo shares a letter about how his life changed since he met Moojibaba. "Thank you for calling me and thank you for supporting me. Thank you for creating a place where all of this can be possible."

Written Testimonials

A collection of written sharings from people around the world who have been touched by Satsang with Moojibaba.


I had a nice life filled with happiness, good friends, travel, no hardship. However, there was always a dissatisfaction, a nagging sense that there must be more to this life than just the mere enjoyment of pleasures.Then I met Mooji and I finally found what I’d been looking for. When he first walked into the room, the honour and respect that was emanating from him was more than palpable. Something about his presence left me deeply touched and this feeling has never changed since. The humility and kindness that he brings to every action, every encounter, is simply extraordinary and I find him to be the best example I have ever met of how great a human being can be. To live and work with Mooji and his community in the last seven years has brought so much joy and tranquility, I can only begin to wonder why I could be so lucky to have such a good life. I particularly enjoy witnessing how many people from all walks of life come to meet Mooji and are transformed by following his guidance and through their experience of being with him. I hope as many people as possible get to discover the same joy and peace that Mooji shares with the world. Then, perhaps, we might all increase our own kindness and understanding and take care of each other and our planet in the most considerate way we can.

Thank you, Moojibaba, for this Grace-filled life


Moojibaba, you welcomed me into your home and Ashram Monte Sahaja about 2 years ago.  I could say my life has become more beautiful, more vibrant. That it flows spontaneously and that the need for planning and projections into the future or dwelling in the past have become almost non existent. That the turbulence of emotions and thoughts are recognised to be clouds passing, sometimes felt to be wild and strong but always they are observed, the involvement in them thinning away. But all this pales when my Heart rejoices in the greatest Gift your Grace has revealed inside me. It is not apart from me, it has not been given to me. It's perfume is this silent, unfading joy, a silence and peace inside my being. You have opened my eyes to God, my very own Self. He alone Is. For this Moojibaba I cannot thank you enough.


Thanks! I am here only the last week, but I could feel great love from the Sangha team, which helped me to merge deep inside. This is my great chance to be here and enjoy every second of the presence of Guruji. My gratefulness to everybody for organising Open Satsang, to Guruji, to Existence! Thanks, thanks, thanks! Love is everywhere. Only Love.


Beloveds, All gratitude to the Supreme One, who arranged and manifested this season of Satsang in Rishikesh. He alone dances, moves and plays as each and every one. You, Beloved Sangha, are the embodiment of this dance, the pure and beautiful joy of God’s Heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you!Love you, love you, love you!


Such an amazing season. Thank you so much to the entire team for all you do to support and welcome us. Full love to you all, and of course to Babaji. I feel very grateful to be part of this beautiful family by the grace of God. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Radha Ma

This is what Monte Sahaja is all about. It’s a sacred land of pure love and joy. It’s an ashram of peace and happiness, the home of a living Master who doesn’t turn his back on anyone who genuinely searches for the truth of them self.  I have lived in the area with my children for a year and a half now, and I have never been so happy in my life, despite a divorce and other challenges life has brought. I feel totally blessed to live close to my Master and for being part of his beautiful Sangha family, who support each other in all possible ways.  I love you timelessly Guruji, and I’m so grateful for showing me that home is in myself, in my Heart.


I met Mooji for the first time 4½ years ago at a silent retreat and that meeting has completely changed my life from that day onwards. When I saw Moojibaba that first time during the retreat, I recognised immediately in his eyes and his presence the same indefinable vastness that I had seen in myself so many years before. And I knew instantly that I had found my Master. I've come to discover that this emptiness inside is actually the source of myself, and the only place from where true love and happiness can spring from. How can you say thank you enough for that? I've never met or seen any human being with such amazing and unending compassion and love. That is the truth.I love you so much Guruji. You have completely saved my life.


Today I want to express my gratitude. I have been here in Monte Sahaja for nearly two years now. A place where kindness is the natural way of being and interacting with people. Where everyone lives like family. Where love, support, acceptance and selflessness are a way of living. Where judgment has no ground to grow. Where everyone is embraced, no matter their culture, race, background, age or religion. Where people see through conditioning and every obstacle is met with love and compassion. All that is genuinely expressed moment to moment. A place where people are sincere, honest, open, light hearted and truthful.  The beauty that I see and experience every day, I never even dreamt I could experience in this life. And the most beautiful things is that the physical place of Monte Sahaja, and Moojibaba’s pointings and guidance, showed me the beauty and peace that can never leave my being. I can only say, thank you, thank you, thank you, endlessly thank you to Mooji and the Sangha family all over the world for saving my life. And thank you to life that brought me to where I Am now.


This was the most intense, fulfilling sharing time with Guruji and the Sangha, and all beings in the stream of waking up! Really the feeling of Heaven on Earth, in the light of Truth. Heart knows it has a tremendous impact and influence for all here! Only gratitude and love for making this happen!  It’s a divine gift to this world! From the smallest created detail to the complete organisation of all, I can only feel love and peace within everything and all! My heart is overflowing with gratitude and joy and love.


My deepest heartfelt gratitude to Sri Moojibaba for the direct, clear, loving pointings. And to the whole beautiful and caring team for such perfect organisation to 'handle' so many people in such a perfect, loving, caring and peaceful way. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you… so so beautiful. Thank you!


From the first moment I listened to the Invitation at home in Ireland, I realised that I do not need to do anything in order to be who I truly am. I continue to recognise this joy and spaciousness as who I am and I am so grateful, coming to Satsang has helped me to stabilise in my true Self more and more. Beautiful. Thank you so much.


Eleven years in your Grace...   You uncover the Light of everyone you meet and shower Blessings over all the world.  What great fortune!  Endless Gratitude and Love


It’s a strange thing when one truly sets out to transcend this sleep of ego and identity. There doesn’t seem to be much space in the world for those. One very quickly runs out of people to talk to in any helpful way. Who is there around who can actually help you remember your original Oneness? Who has that power and authority? When the Master appeared in my life I never looked back. The day that I felt the directness, simplicity and truth of his words sink into my being, I stopped wasting time with anything else. Here is one who tells the Truth, the highest Truth, and by the Grace and miraculousness of God, somehow has the ability to guide others. And he doesn’t boast about it. He never asked to be followed, but he is good to those who do. He doesn’t need to listen to every seeker’s individual drama, yet he does, with great patience and all-embracing Love. His heart is full with the Truth, and so are his pointings, for they come from there alone. Where, in all of that, is there space for anything but integrity? Is that blind devotion? No, because the core of this relationship with my Guru is his teachings, not his person. I follow him because the only thing he has ever told me was to look inside and see. And be.


From the moment I first saw Moojibaba, felt his words and his immaculate presence, I knew that I was in the presence of a living Master, and that he was the one who could bring me home to myself. Now, having had the privilege of knowing and being in the presence of Moojibaba for a long time, I know him to be the absolute embodiment of purity, of Truth, of compassion, of unconditional love and care. I witness him always moving from selflessness and working tirelessly for those who yearn for Truth. I watch his students flower and become true lights in this world. Moojibaba has brought an ever shining light into my heart, immense joy, a peace that cannot be touched and a love that is so great that I sometimes don't understand how my body can contain it. He has brought me into the recognition that I could never be separate from God. Thank you Moojibaba, words fail in expressing my gratitude and love for you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
