Mooji – An Invitation To Freedom

Mooji is a spiritual teacher originally from Jamaica, he moved to Brixton in London as a teenager and became a street portrait artist in the West End, and later taught art at a local college.

In 1987 at a chance meeting with a Christian mystic, he had a life-changing encounter through prayer, that brought him into the direct experience of the Supreme within.

This inspired him to ‘walk out of his life’ and in 1993 he embarked on a spiritual journey through India, eventually landing at the feet of the man who became his Master, the late Sri HWL Poonja, AKA Papaji.

Following in his footsteps Mooji now regularly conduct large Satsang gatherings throughout the world, sharing self-inquiry and directing his students to question, who or what they are at the deepest level.

Can’t see what Westeners see as so fascinating with these foreign guru types. That said, the whole concept of religious beliefs is a bit foreign to me . When I listen to him he makes nice sounds but is not really saying anything. There is no real message within his words.

“Not really saying anything”…?? That is exactly the point! He is great at articulating the “nothing” from which life itself springs. “nothing” is a problem for your mind to process, therefore it sees it as of no significance. Thus you lose it instantly. Lose everything, grasp “nothing” and you shall have become the only thing that ever was….awakened to your true self.

I understand what you’re saying and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with saying it either, his words will resonate with some more than others. At 1:15:41 Brian asks him What is God? I think his answer answers your concerns about his words having no real message.

Man Mooji is such an amazing being! Love how he says that and it does make sense in a way. I hope to one day find out exactly what that means though my eyes if my being awakens one day. Thank you so much Bryan and London Real. This is a top 5 interview for sure.

Thanks for having Mooji on but monetising him by not showing the end of the show is just wrong I feel, but hey that’s capitalism I guess.

What an amazing interview ! Mooji is a great been. Thank you, thank you, thank you LONDONREAL for this great moment. And thank you Mooji for your spontaneity, purity, transparency and honesty. I really felt every moment of this interview. This was Real . Namaste .

I know Mooji for many years and have spent time with him. This was one of the worst interviews I have ever seen. You should of done more research prior to this. Mooji isn’t here to feed the intellect but to free the mind, via the heart. Otherwise this seems like a New Agey thing. Mooji is Mooji and an interview like this can never express that.

Elwyn Round

I enjoyed the interview. mooji has plenty of satsangs online to do just that what you desire.

amitmodha311

Disagree Keith and this interview isn’t supposed to free the mind, it’s a behind the scenes and fly on the wall interview.

There are a LOT of neo-advaita/non-dual teachers out there. Mooji has always felt legit to me.

Fantastic interview. I love listening to people who when you listen to them talk, there really is no way to fully “understand” what they say. Because it’s logically incomprehensible and must be felt and experienced.

Wonderful conversation. I loved it. Great to hear Mooji being asked a different type of question than he receives in Satang. Also shows where London Real is at, having a man like this on. I must say, to have Dan Pena and Mooji on is so intriguing, as they are very different people. One has mastered the outward journey and one has mastered the inward one. Loved the contrast, love the show.

I like a lot of your content and I know you want to funnel business but this streaming system sucks. On mobile, it resets everytime you leave the tab and takes forever to load …
