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.
Papaji is probably more responsible than anyone else for the current wave of interest in “nonduality” in the West. His admirers call him Papaji, and he was a devotee of Sri Ramana Maharshi. There are at least four reasons for Papaji’s remarkable influence. First, he was very effective at giving people glimpses of enlightenment. Second, he emphasized the aspect of neo-Advaita that appeals most to Westerners: the idea that realization is available immediately without effort. Third, he authorized hundreds and even thousands of Westerners to be his “ambassadors” which many of them interpreted as permission to teach. And fourth, after Osho died in 1990, many of Osho’s followers flocked to Papaji. The modern Western satsang movement was created by his students when they came home from India to teach.
