Freedom. Truth. Discovery.
It’s Who You Are.

Have you ever felt that you’ve yet to be fully and truly alive? That just beyond reach, there might be something far more vast, immediate, and real?

“What you’ve sensed was the ‘absolute You’ beckoning,” teaches Gangaji, “the boundless awareness and love that is your true nature.” And with The Greatest Discovery, you are invited to answer that call to this ecstatic expanse of being.

A Word-by-Word, Moment-by-Moment Journey into Awakening

When hearing Gangaji for the first time, many listeners—even those who’ve practiced self-inquiry on their own for years—describe a “direct transmission” of infinite and loving consciousness. It sounds “mystical,” but as Gangaji often says, she is just an ordinary person. So what’s happening?

“We create suffering,” she explains, “when we come to believe that we are the waves and weather of our physical, emotional, and mental turmoil—but who we really are is the ever-present and immutable water.” And by simply inquiring into these inner obstacles in the presence of others—and sharing each step thought-by-thought—Gangaji creates a heart-centered attunement that lofts us into the profound experience that her listeners describe.

The Greatest Discovery marks a unique new offering from Gangaji. First, it’s a concentrated distillation of her current core teachings on dozens of real-life issues, including nine guided practices. But more than that—these intimate meetings are meant to be an immersive journey to spark the direct experience of awakening as you listen, … answer the call, … and embark on your own adventure into spiritual discovery.

Gangaji is one of the few teachers who unequivocally and consistently points directly to pure consciousness as our true nature. She is also one of the few that talks in no uncertain terms about the inevitability of death and loss in a way that helps one to go through the fear and dread which these subjects raise in all of us and which we would rather avoid facing at all costs. She consistently models and -demonstrates the path of freedom through self-inquiry. Highly recommended!

Her voice alone is a trigger to drop into deeper states.The teaching of her lineage from Ramana Maharshi seems to be a most direct and potent one, which I have 'tracked' without successfully joining since R's sayings were reprinted in the 70's. I feel empowered to keep at it, to keep 'stopping' into stillness. I have recognized that the enlightened
being formerly known as Toni Varner was a trainee in an Arica Institute 40 day on Maui in 1974 for which I was a trainer. I thank her for persevering to become a being who can model and 'invite' so beautifully.

Excellent, But first, get her magnificent Diamond in Your Pocket. This makes a very good companion to it, with a more personal, intimate approach, and with inductions and exercises.
