Mooji is a spiritual teacher originally from Jamaica. He was a student of Papaji who was a direct disciple of the advaita and non-dual master Ramana Maharshi. Mooji has called his relaxed philosophical approach, “the lazy man’s way to enlightenment”.
In November 1993, he met Papaji in Lucknow, India where it is said that he was able to see the ever-present source and truth of existence. In his later years, Moo-Young has held satsangs throughout the world and invites others to contemplate or inquire as to what their source is. Like H.W.L. Poonja, Moo-Young’s teachings are simple and he encourages his followers to keep quiet and avoid the mind’s influence and abide in the Self which is the witness of all phenomenal existence and therefore before any ‘thing’, including thoughts and all that is perceived with the five senses (citation needed). Many of his followers watch his satsang sessions through YouTube. Mooji is one of the most well known contemporary teachers of the advaita Vedanta tradition and a “rising international legend”.
Up until 2011 Mooji lived in Brixton, London. He now lives in ‘Monte Sahaja’ near the town of Funcheira in the Alentejo region of South West Portugal where he is developing a spiritual center.
