Gauri said ... [about Mooji]
The real problem with Mooji is his insistence on self-enquiry as the one true way. He has borrowed this - apparently from Ramana and Papaji - because he has nothing to offer himself and needs to establish a lineage to furnish his claims of Messiahship. Little does he know Ramana only advised on self-enquiry to those who asked about it. Ramana simply upheld the ancient Indian context when a method was requested of him. Silence not self-enquiry was the hallmark of Ramana's teaching. Ramana never needed a method ... Teaching self inquiry does not endorse spiritual authenticity. Mooji's emphasis on self inquiry is a cheap sales trick from a cheap con artist who is well known to have never been acknowledged by Papaji.
Mooji has publicly announced on his posters from late 2006 to be the standardbearer of Ramana's lineage. However, as Gauri says, his only tool is self-enquiry. Mooji is a secondhand car salesman offering the liturgies of spiritual greats who have walked before him ... which he has the audacity to claim for his own personal ambition.
His background is in mystical Christianity and Seventh Day Adventism, an End Time religion which emphasises the imminent second coming of Jesus (a role Mooji believes he fits perfectly!) Apparently at last year's retreat he personally enlightened six people and in private he boasts about his siddhis. Where do these "powers" to enlighten people come from? Isn't this an obvious corruption, distortion and conceit taken to ludicrous extremes!? Mooji also cannot bear to be in the company of those who have "excessive ego" - especially women who have to be moulded to his energetic (and sexual) needs. There are even rumours that he has slapped around some of his former girlfriends. How this squares with the Lamb of God, we do not know ...
Mooji is enacting a self-serving religious drama. He is a self-obsessed bore who spends most of his time talking about himself in excessive and tedious detail. This is a dangerous form of self-indulgence which pampers his sense of personal vanity. Mooji surrounds himself with sycophants and feeds on the adulation of the gullible, the weak and the needy. His politically correct spiritual performance caters perfectly for his young naive audience lost in Zen aphorisms and New Age wish fulfillment.
Mooji's satsang is a Papaji-lite tribute band completely devoid of inspiration, originality and true feeling. He has polluted and prostituted both Advaita and Arunachala for his own egoic ends.
