AVADHUTA* Mission Statement

Papaji’s official Avadhuta Foundation was established in 1993 to catalog, preserve, and make available to the public, information about the Indian teacher and guru, HWL Poonja, affectionately known as Papaji, and also that of his beloved teacher, Sri Ramana Maharshi. It functions both as a library and bookstore to distribute books, DVDs, CDs, photos of Poonjaji and Sri Ramana, as well as archive and share Papaji’s satsangs. We are dedicated as stewards of Papaji’s message to faithfully present his teachings. This requires that we are true to his words and that we present them as accurately and purely as possible.

*Avadhūta is a Sanskrit term for a type of mystic or saint who is beyond egoic-consciousness, duality and common worldly concerns and acts without consideration for standard social etiquette. An avadhuta is a liberated sage who takes the role of a guru/teacher to show the path of liberation to others.
