Just an observation: in Mooji's "important message" video
there are a few strong clues for everyone to see that Mooji is quite out of touch with reality and is the opposite of humble.
A few of the things he says:
"This is Moojibaba here."
The -ji suffix means "respected". "Baba" means "wise old man". So he says: "This is respected wise old man Moo here."
A bit later he says:
"I have never done anything to harm anyone and I never will, I feel"
Really? How can anyone in all seriousness say they have never and will never harm anyone? Everyone has harmed others. You have to be seriously lacking in empathy if you manage to overlook all of the harm you have ever done to anyone.
And later he says:
"God would not uphold and support anyone who takes advantage of his children."
What does that even mean? It's a very strange thing to say. One thing the claim implies is that proven abusers have been able to do their deeds without God upholding them. So he defines God as a being with very limited power, whose "upholding" means little or nothing. What kind of God does Mooji believe in?
Another thing I noticed is that Mooji has published a book called "White Fire: Spiritual Insights and Teachings of Advaita Zen Master Mooji"
So to keep count of how Mooji sees himself: respected wise old man Advaita Zen Master Moo.
According to Wikipedia "Zen master
is a somewhat vague English term that arose in the first half of the 20th century, sometimes used to refer to an individual who teaches Zen Buddhist meditation and practices, usually implying longtime study and subsequent authorization to teach and transmit the tradition themselves."
In which Zen school has Mooji studied, and which Zen teacher gave him Dharma transmission? None. What Advaita guru has authorized him to start teaching? None. He attended some non-lineage teacher's satsangs for a few months, that's all. It takes a lot of arrogance and lack of respect for both traditions to pull the title of Advaita and Zen Master out of your ass.
Edit: I forgot to mention Mooji's priceless statement at the end of his denial-video: "I want to encourage you to keep benefiting from the wonderful interactions you've had with me over the years." Okay Mooji. I'm happy for you that you think so very highly of yourself.
