Advaita zen master Mooji (Anthony Paul Moo-Young) was
born in Jamaica on January 29, 1954. As a teenager, he moved to
London, UK, where he worked as a street portrait artist and then as
an art teacher at the local college. In 1987, an encounter with a
Christian mystic inspired Mooji to "walk out of his life." In 1993,
Mooji traveled to India, where he met his master Sri H. W. L.
Poonja, or Papaji, a direct disciple of the great Advaita master
Ramana Maharshi. At Papaji's feet, whatever remained of an active
ego within Mooji was finally uprooted. For several years following,
he remained alone and fully immersed in his inmost being. In 1999,
people began to recognize Mooji's radiance and approached him to
simply sit silently in his presence. Soon they started asking him
about the nature of consciousness and their own search for
Mooji is unlike anyone else you're likely to meet, for his presence compels one to question one's very nature and existence, and exudes a loving compassion and devotion. People from all walks of life are deeply touched by this indefinable presence, and perhaps for the first time experience a natural sense of happiness and peace as they begin to discover who or what they truly are. Mooji's unity with Truth is also potently shared through self-inquiry--the unsparing light of non-dual wisdom that dispels the delusions and suffering common to human experiencing. Each one who meets Mooji with a genuine urge for pure understanding, for freedom, is pulled by the profundity of his unconditional love and the power of his pointings into the recognition of the infinite Self we already are.
