Avadhuta Foundation

The Avadhuta Foundation preserves the teachings of HWL Poonja, affectionately known as Papaji, and also that of his beloved teacher, Sri Ramana Maharshi.

If you identify with what comes and goes, you will be unhappy. If you identify with what is permanent and always there, you are happiness itself. – Papaji

 

Precious Teachings

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.

*The word Avadhuta comes from an Indian term Avadhoot for one who has “shaken off” or “passed beyond” all worldly attachments and cares, including all motives of detachment (or conventional and other-worldly renunciation), all conventional notions of life and religion, and all seeking for “answers” or “solutions” in the form of conditional experience or conditional knowledge. (Quoted from The Avataric Samrajya of Adidam.)
