Anthony Paul Moo-Young known as Mooji (born 29 January 1954) is a spiritual teacher originally from Jamaica.

Mooji prescribes self-inquiry, directing his students to the non-dual Self by asking the question "to whom do these thoughts arise?" .

Moo-Young was born and grew up in Port Antonio, Jamaica. In 1969, at the age of fifteen, he emigrated to England after his father died. He went to live with his mother who had been living in London since he was a baby. He taught himself to be an artist employing various media including stained glass, ceramics and sculpture. For a while he taught art at a college in Brixton.

In his later years, Moo-Young has held satsangs throughout the world and invites others to contemplate or inquire as to what their source is. Like H.W.L. Poonja, Moo-Young's teachings are simple and he encourages his followers to keep quiet and avoid the mind's influence and abide in the Self which is the witness of all phenomenal existence and therefore before any 'thing', including thoughts and all that is perceived with the five senses (citation needed).
