Anthony Paul Moo-Young, known as Mooji, was born on 29 January 1954 in Port Antonio, Jamaica. In 1969, he moved to the UK and he is presently living in Brixton, London. Anthony worked in London’s ‘West end’ as a street portrait artist for many years, then as a painter and a stained glass artist, and later as a teacher at Brixton College. For a long time, he was well known as Tony Moo, but is now affectionately known as Mooji* by the many seekers and friends who visit him.
Mooji is a direct disciple of Sri Harilal Poonja, the renowned advaita master, or Papaji, as his followers call him. In 1987, a chance meeting with a Christian mystic was to be a life-changing encounter for Mooji. It brought him, through prayer, into the direct experience of the Divine within. Within a short period, he experienced a radical shift in consciousness so profound that outwardly, he seemed, to many who knew him, to be an entirely different person. As his spiritual consciousness awakened, a deep inner transformation began which unfolded in the form of many miraculous experiences and mystical insights. He felt a strong wind of change blowing through his life which brought with it a deep urge to surrender completely to divine will. Shortly after, he stopped teaching, left his home and began a life of quiet simplicity and surrender to the will of God as it manifested spontaneously within him. A great peace entered his being, and has remained ever since.
For the following six years, Mooji drifted in a state of spontaneous meditation oblivious to the outer world he formally knew. During these years, he lived almost penniless but was constantly absorbed in inner joy, contentment and natural meditation. Grace came in the form of his sister Julianne, who welcomed Mooji into her home with loving kindness, and afforded him the time and space he much needed to flower spiritually, without the usual pressures and demands of external life. Mooji refers to this period of his life as his “wilderness years” and speaks touchingly of a deep feeling of being “seated on the Lap of God”. In many respects, these were far from easy times for Mooji, yet there is no trace of regret or remorse in his tone as he recounts these years. On the contrary, he speaks of this phase of his life as being richly blessed and abundant in grace, trust and loving devotion.
In late 1993, Mooji travelled to India. He had a desire to visit Dakshineswar in Calcutta where Sri Ramakrishna, the great Bengali Saint, had lived and taught. The words and life of Ramakrishna were a source of inspiration and encouragement to Mooji in the early years of his spiritual development. He loved the Saint deeply but as fate would determine, he would not go to Calcutta. While in Rishikesh, a holy place at the foothills of the Himalayas, he was to have another propitious encounter; this time with three devotees of the great advaita Master Sri Harilal Poonja, known to his many devotees as Papaji. Their persistent invitation to Mooji to travel with them to meet the Master made a deep impression on him. Still he delayed the prospect of meeting Papaji for two whole weeks, choosing first to visit Varanasi, the holy city.

You say you have been trying so hard to find the Self.
But you, the one who is trying so hard to find the Self is who or what exactly?
Nobody is challenging this identity. In fact, many feel uncomfortable to have their notion of self threatened.
Therefore, it is easier and more comfortable to perpetuate this collective assumption that the ego is real.
And yet, do you know how important it is to be aware that you are aware of this? It would expose the ‘seeker’ as a mere idea or assumption inside the consciousness you already are and reveal the true Self behind the imagined self.
The person who is searching for freedom can never find it. This ‘person’, the one searching, is itself observable, isn’t it? Please try to understand and confirm this.
Here’s another grenade insight:
Because the person is always a complexity and a nuisance, freedom cannot be ‘for’ the person. Freedom is freedom ‘from’ the person.
For an intelligent being, the ‘person’ or personal identity is the most desirable thing to loose.
And every day I am trying to push you out of this little bubble of personhood into your real existence, the vast realm beyond all concepts—the realm of perfect Being.
Thereafter, you will look at any and every human being and see only the Source because you are looking from and as the Source itself.
This is God meeting God—the true meaning of Namaste.
~ Mooji, India 2015
The pure Self in the play we call existence gets identified with the person, then it has some affection for what I call the ‘infection’, and it deeply believes it is a person.
To walk in the forest of mind is a very unstable place.
Be bold and courageously say, ‘I am the Self’.
I am not asking you to perform any spiritual gymnastics.
Just quietly within your own being allow my words to point you to the place that you can never not be.

“Intelligence, sentience, everything that manifests and the source of manifestation, all together, all the beings together, you may say ‘this is God or consciousness, pure consciousness’ .. All this diversity springs out of one unicity.” (Mooji) Thank you for this message. http://www.mooji.org
Nothing that you acquire can be the permanent state. Only what you discover. The realization of the self is a very simple thing in itself. What It is, is just simple and natural.
This Satsang happened in Rishikesh, India 2013 under a tree which Papaji used to sit, sometimes referred to as “Papaji’s tree”.

Mooji gently guides those at Satsang in Port Chester,New York, into the unassociated state of “Simply I Am”. Some would call this a guided meditation; Mooji refers to this as being simply here in pure un-associated awareness. Mooji often says that the highest joy of the Being is to contemplate itself, so perhaps this could be called a ‘guided comtemplation’. The music “Winding Back Thru You” is generously provided by Parson-McNamara in service to truth, and is the perfect backdrop for this no-distance-journey back to the natural state.
Spontaneous Talks With Mooji
05.05.2012, Monte Sahaja, Portugal
To live a life that most people call “life” or “existence”
can be a very narrow thing, very personal affair,
but to be in your universality is to be conversant with all things.
Not necessary that you are conversing with all things,
but your Beingness is large enough, everything fits inside your Beingness.
As a person we are claustrophobic.
So many concerns so many things have to be kept up,
so much self-consciousness, so much looking after this body.
As Consciousness we are universal, we are not personal.
It can be an instant of recognition.
Even if you live in a place like a little, tiny village,
it doesn’t stop you from being universal inside your Self.
