Yeah, its like the days when books were written on perishable materials such as papyrus and parchment.

Only way that texts could be preserved decade after decade was by continually creating fresh copies by hand to replace older copies crumbling away.

Todays digital texts are unstable and will not remain accessible unless a lot of us cooperate in their preservation.

Texts that challenge someone's monopoly of power are less likely to be preserved.

Mooji's latest book is grandiosely called "Immediate Awakening for Everyone", which seems as definitive as the lengthy medical disclaimer now on his website to keep anyone away that might become a liability.

Played the crowdTuesday, March 27, 2018 at 9:41:00 AM PDT
I'm very happy to read this. The line "playing to the crowd" just hit me so hard.

I have six months into a stay in Mooji's Ashram. I was very down and lost because of pressures I was under there. Suffering and seemingly surrounded by people who were psychologically absent (no not in a good way). It was all 'satsang' so it's all accepted and allowed, until they decide something is wrong with you and then you're quietly bustled out.

One day I was herded in front of a group of fifty people while Mooji was holding court. It was so inappropriate. And I tried to explain what was happening. But he just started talking and everyone started giggling, and it immediately struck me "Wow, he's just playing to the crowd".

And then I chose to push that feeling away. If you've been there, or if you're still there, then you know how the grouptalk allows you write off what I'm saying.

"If you're in your mind, he won't see you"
"He wants your 'A' questions not your 'B' and 'C' questions"
"You're projecting"
"He gave you what you needed in that moment"

And any number of little slogans that you've been conditioned to believe that allow this sort of behavior to be justified. But it wasn't. I pushed away that thought of him playing to the crowd, because there was no one there who would allow that idea.

But it's exactly what he was doing.

Mooji is a questionable "guru", along with anyone else endorsed by Papaji (Andrew Cohen, Gangaji, etc.) - basically the whole neo-Advaita movement.

“One of the tragedies of Papaji’s teaching ministry is that he either told, inferred, or allowed hundreds of individuals to believe they were fully enlightened simply because they’d had one, or many, powerful experiences of awakening. These “enlightened” teachers then proceeded to enlighten their own students in a similar way, and thus was born what is known as the “neo-Advaita“, or “satsang” movement in western culture.”

– Eyes Wide Open: Cultivating Discernment on the Spiritual Path.

The quality and clarity of the information he imparts is sometimes questionable. And when he's not sure about something, he often cracks a joke and redirects attention to another topic. Either he is not spiritually enlightened, or he’s a poor teacher. The information he shares may not (always) be wrong, but is it useful? While he’s (mostly) harmless, his satsangs are a waste of time.
