(Grim) History has shown that the danger quotient usually increases when
a charismatic leader retreats from society to an isolated compound and brings followers with him.
",,,oddly enough spme of those people who were with Osho are now with Mooji. Really fucking scary.
Here is a Mooji quote from 2013
August 18, 2013 ·
What chance is there to discover the final Truth?
Here, with me, every chance, because I don’t accept you in the way you present yourself. This self-portrait I disregard. It is a poor work of art or heart.
You want to be here as Miss and Mr Sannyasin, Miss and Mr Hormone, Miss and Mr Spiritual, Miss and Mr Special, Miss and Mr Chosen, Miss and Mr Yogi...
I am sorry... not here. I have no space for you.
Try again another time.
When you run out of titles, come back.
But who will take this risk?

If anyone wants further information, there's a detailed description of
the Rajneesh/Osho ashram as it was in 2007, in Anthony D'Andrea's book, Global Nomads Techno and New Age as Transnational Countercultures in Ibiza and Goa 2007
Might be good to plough through the entire chapter - people who know the routine at Mooji's place can compare what they know to the descriptions of the Osho ashram meditation center and see if there are any similarities.
THe book is available via PDF here:
While in India, many of these
Ibiza-based expatriates have become sannyasins, following Osho to Oregon
and then back to Pune. As sociologist Danielle Rozenberg states, Ibiza is
an ‘island of sannyasins’ (Rozenberg 1990: 82).
During the 1980s, while participating in Ibiza’s nightlife, they have
imported various New Age techniques from the US, including the use of
MDMA for therapeutic, meditational and recreational uses. In their interactions
with British and German clubbers on the island, sannyasins have
inadvertently contributed to the emergence of the rave movement, a culture
centered on electronic dance music and digital art. Techno then rapidly
flowed into the mainstream explosion of rave parties and corporate nightclubs
in Western Europe, thus delineating one countercultural genealogy
that runs from Pune, to Oregon, to Ibiza, to London, and to cosmopolitan
segments of the global youth.
Those at the ashram (and one must have considerable funds to afford residence at the ashram ) are expected to be open and expressive in their emotions.
They may learn the habit of obedience while there and if any of them get linked up with Mooji, perhaps this is convenient for him. Could they have already been schooled in obedience at the Osho ashram before being recommended to see Mooji?
