Expect an unusual answer to the question, “Who am I?” in this conversation with a western woman who teaches in the lineage of Sri Ramana Maharshi, one of India’s most beloved sages. Gangaji says, “I had spent years putting down the whole guru movement and any westerner who came back from India with a Hindu name seemed absurd to me.” After decades of searching, she found her true self and now assists others in removing obstacles to their own realization of truth to discover “the fullness, the radiance, the boundlessness” of their being. Gangaji serves us a banquet of spiritual wisdom and will help you discover who lies in the deepest recesses of your own being.
Gangaji is the author of You Are That (Satsang Foundation & Press 1996) and numerous audio and video recordings available from Satsang Foundation.
