Vaster Than Sky, Greater Than Space
Modern day Mindfulness
What if all that you believe yourself to be - your body, mind, emotions, and conditioning - is actually what you are not? What if this is merely a self-portrait shaped by false identification, habit, and assumptions
In ever-growing gatherings worldwide, the revered teacher Mooji has opened the eyes of thousands through his rare ability to shine light on the ineffable with uncommon clarity, humour and warmth. Now, in Vaster Than Sky, Greater Than Space, Mooji invites and inspires readers everywhere to discover the true essence from which we all arise.
Throughout the book he addresses various questions that come up for seekers, such as:
How do I find peace, joy, love and happiness?
Is it really possible for an ordinary person with a job and family to attain enlightenment?
Are intimate relationships a help or a hindrance to awakening?
I don't believe in God, and I don't consider myself a devotional type of person, but the word Truth resonates with me - are your teachings relevant to me?
You use the phrase 'timeless presence'. What does it mean? How can anything be timeless?
How does one transcend personal conditioning and suppressed emotions, and so come to lasting freedom?
If we are essentially free, why does it seem so difficult and distant, so remote or rare to realise the Truth?
Through our own earnest search for truth, Mooji helps us arrive at the answers, not by offering concepts but by leading us back to our hidden yet inherent knowing.
Mooji (Anthony Paul Moo-Young) was born in Jamaica in 1954. As a teenager he moved to London, where he later worked as a street portrait artist and then as an art teacher in the local college. In 1987, an encounter with a Christian mystic inspired Mooji to 'walk out of his life' - an expression he uses to convey the profundity of that meeting. In 1983, Mooji travelled to India, where seemingly by chance, he met his Master, Sri HWL Poonja, or Papaji, as he is affectionately known by his devotees. At Papaji's feet, whatever still remained of an active ego was finally uprooted.
Recognising Mooji's radiance, people from various parts of the world soon began to approach him to simply sit in his presence and to ask questions regarding their search for Truth. The capactity to guide them arose spontaneously in him. While Mooji's presence exudes compassion and devotion, his unity with Truth is also potently shared through self-inquiry, the unsparing light of wisom which dispels the delusions and suffering common to human experiencing. In his direct and open interactions, each one who meets Mooji with a genuine urge for freedom is pulled by his profound unconditional love and the power of his pointings into the recognition of the infinite Self we already are.
Mooji continues to share Satsang worldwide with all who yearn to discover their true nature.
