Another good video by anti-cultic abuse activist Mr. Henri Jolicoeur: Henri gives an analysis of Mooji's relationships with current partner Sara (Krishnabai) and with ex-wife Radha. The relationship between Sara and Moo has been confirmed by the spiritual teacher Joan Tolifson on social media. She spent time with the couple in a social setting. Why not send her a email if you nee

Here is a comment from under one of Henri Jolicoeur's videos: "I’m so grateful to see you still putting content up about Mooji. I was a devotee of Mooji and spent quite some time with him in Portugal and know first hand the evil from him. He is more dangerous than he is helpful and you are right, he has no idea of the deeper states. People these days are easily fooled by “pretty wor

A comment lifted directly from social media today. Quote: I was drawn in for a while to his satsang and followed him for a few years. I left as it became obvious to me that he was sleeping with his 'young-enough-to-be-his- daughters' beautiful devotees and hiding it. I also saw how he encouraged people to worship him and bow at his feet which is a strange thing to do when you are a

Hi Sydney Girl, I agree with Rick Ross - it's difficult to tell if your sister mentally ill or under undue influence. Possibly it could be that both metal illness and cultic influence are working in tandem with each other. How are her children and do you have any contact with them? If you have their mobile phone numbers you could try making contact to see if they are worried about thei

Also, Everyone - I found an interesting podcast discussing Moo's Cult. It's a good listen! One woman describes how she almost fell victim to the on-line recruitment drive and slick marketing of the Moo Organization. At 7.42 minutes she describes how she became very into Moo. At 9.15 she describes the end of one of the videos she watched - she sees a young woman traili

Henri Jolicoeur makes yet another video criticizing Mooji, Papaji and the whole false linage fiasco. Mooji previously claimed to be a direct spiritual descendent of Ramana Maharshi - but since multiple people came forward to debunk this blatant lie, Moo did a backflip and wiped the spiritual linage claim from his website. What else has Moo lied about??????

That is a very sad case, Sarv. I don't think I have read about it before now. I did have some correspondence with someone a while back, who reported a disturbed, mentally unwell person working at Mooji's ashram in Portugal who was not offered any kind of support for her illness. The attitude of the cult members was "there is nothing we can do for her" but they didn't s

Thanks Amitao, Henri Jolicoeur was indeed threatened with legal action over one of his videos, which he he did take down. All the other anti-Mooji content of his Youtube channel remains available, however, including this video: The association between the legal firm and the Moo organization dissolved rather quickly, from what I hear. I do not know why. I suggest the "Moo-Moo's&

Hi Gaja, It's good to see you posting here again. I hope everything is going well for you! I have a question for everyone: Where is Mooji? I've noticed this year that Moo has been increasingly absent. The Moo Organization issued a mysterious statement back on June 23rd this year, stating that the weekly release of their online Satsung had "reached a natural conclusion"

Hi Sarv, I came to the same conclusion as you some time ago. Mooji uses hypnosis/trance. His videos leave you in a state of very relaxed confusion, if you are susceptible to trance induction. I felt very fuzzy-headed after watching the Mooji material and I began t have 'nihilist' thoughts, such as 'nothing matters'. I became very suspicious that something was not right with

Great advice here from a Buddhist Monk - If you want to be happy then you should: 1. Keep your Morality 2. Give to others 3. Meditate Notice how morality comes first? Meditation only comes in at 3rd place. There is a reason for this. at 17.50 mins. Also, meditation is this day and age might be doing something as simple as slowly and quietly baking some bread, as long as you do

Hello aladdin_felip, I read your posts with interest, thanks for contributing to the conversation. One thing I would like to point out (which I'm fairy sure you are aware of anyway) is that Mooji does not teach traditional Advaita Vedanta - he teaches some mish-mash of ideas that he had made up himself. If you would like to understand what traditional Advaita Vedanta is, then please ta

Hi GreenLion, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I had a similar experience recently with a friend of mine who I will call 'Jeff'. I am currently distancing myself from Jeff, because I don't think I can help him and I don't need to get involved. The thing with Jeff is that he has a partner who is also extremely concerned about him and is watching the situation. I

Hi Heythere101, I found the listing in Hawaii that you are referring to: I wonder if Old Tony knows that people are profiteering off his name? No doubt he would ask for a cut of the takings if only he knew!!

I found this comment on a social media site today: "I have personally found Mooji’s Satsang refreshing and felt drawn more towards his energy than any other spiritual teacher. I have heard all of these allegations and found it disappointing but also realize that Mooji is a man with human desires. I also see the challenges he faces and all the expectations people place on a “guru.” What

Hi Everyone, I saw on Facebook today a post about all the intimate relationships Tony Moo has had - There is a picture of some of the women Tony has allegedly been involved with.

Latest news - Jeff is confused, distracted and very stressed. He does not reply to my text messages, then when I do call him, we make plans which he promptly forgets! I invited him and his partner around to our house and he said he'd let me know once he'd asked his partner, but then I didn't hear a word. The date passed without word from Jeff. Then a late night text message from J

Hi All, and thanks for the comments and support. The meditation group is taking a hiatus as Jeff's mother has fallen ill and will need his care. I think she ate something that disagreed with her over Christmas and things have gone down-hill from there. My partner and I are supposed to pay Jeff a social visit some time next week - nothing to do with 'the group' this time, but

Hello All, I went to my third meditation evening with 'Jeff' and the others. There were even more of them than ever before, the lounge-room at Jeff's place was crowded. We had to squash up together to fit in. Jeff was in fine form, I even wondered if he had not been viewing cult material on Youtube in order to perfect his weird persona. Possibly not, but I remain very cynical. He

Yes indeed, Shamrock. A lot of people are susceptible to this kind of thing. I even live in a relatively conservative area with an aging demographic. We are not talking about hippy-central here. The other thing which I forgot to mention is that during the second session, "Jeff" whipped around the circle to see what people took away from the first meditation session. Most people did

Yes, Zizlz, I guess it is power - but it's anonymous power. I suppose that could be gratifying for a certain type of person? But a lot of the revenue raised by selling the Q t-shits and posters and setting up the (now defunct) Facebook groups would be raised by others? Meaning that potentially anyone could be making money by jumping on board? Here, I don't really see much simila

Hi Everyone, I was just browsing Wikipedia this evening and took a nostalgic peek at the 'Mooji' entry.
