Great article Sahara, which is very relevant. To quote it again for others:Dr. Cath defined a cult as a group of people joined together by a common ideological system fostered by a charismatic leader, where, he said, ''the expectation is that they can transcend the imperfections and finitude of life.''
He said: ''Often they set up a we-they philosophy: We have the truth and you do not.''
For anyone else reading that article, here’s the 2017 Sahaja timetable from:
I believe they also have jobs there & work hard between the daily brainwashing sessions. “Satsang” can reportedly go on late into the night.

07:15 – 08:00 Breakfast

12:30 – 13:15 Lunch

It’s my belief the psychological regime they’re put under systematically causes these (serious) mental health issues. The videos alone leave the viewer in a very confused & disassociated state, none of this takes into account the interactions which happen at a more personal level.
They seem to share the mindset someone’s inferior for “not getting it” (being confused or resistive) or becoming mentally unstable as a direct result, they reason this away with “Mooji’s not suitable for those who need therapy” (gaslighting). To hear there’s no real support doesn’t surprise me at all.
On another note, Tony's latest video "stand with the sages" is absolutely hilarious, he's resorted to outright blackmail :D
It's quite tragic the way he lacks so much credibility these days he has to (by implication) group himself in with these historic figures to play his mind games. This is like something from a (strange) controlling relationship, he's behaving a like a psychotic possessive boyfriend.
This is what happens when a controlling individuals control is lost!
So Tony never makes any claims, is humble, just sold incense & people flock to him. Err.... ok.
