Interview with Mooji, October 2016
Updated: Apr 2, 2022
In October 2016, while travelling in Spain and Portugal, Ruti and I were generously hosted by Neo-Advaita teacher Mooji at his ashram in S. Portugal. I had interviewed Mooji before by Skype for my book Spiritual Transmission, and this was an opportunity to interview him face-to-face. I asked him some challenging questions - with respect and appreciation - about his motive to start an ashram, mistakes he had made as a teacher, the motivation of some of his students to teach, the distinction between spiritual-platonic and sexual-romantic love and intimacy, etc. Mooji answered them all in his relaxed and pleasant way. The recorded interview conveys well the closeness and warmth between us.
