Uncovering the Truth in your Own Life StoryBook - 2011
JUST AS THE LIFE STORIES of the Buddha and Christ have served those on the spiritual path for millennia, our own lives can serve as important teaching stories. In Hidden Treasure , one of the great spiritual teachers of our time, Gangaji, uses the telling of her own life story to help readers uncover the truth in their own.
Antoinette (Toni) Robertson Varner was given the name Gangaji by her teacher Sri H. W. L. Poonja in 1990. Before meeting Poonja, she had pursued many paths to enlightenment. Raised in the 1950s in the racially divided South, she married young and had a daughter. After the dissolution of her first marriage, she moved to Northern California and immersed herself fully in the spiritual culture that was flourishing there-but all of her efforts to achieve lasting fulfilment ultimately fell short. In the wake of her disillusionment, she made a final prayer for help. In 1990, the answer to her prayer came unexpectedly, taking her to India and to the meeting that would change everything. There, on the banks of the River Ganga, she met Poonja, also known as Papaji, who opened her mind to the eternal presence of being.
In this life-changing book, Gangaji guides readers in recognizing that while their life stories follow universal patterns of human suffering, if they uncover and speak the truth of these stories they can open the doorway to the possibility of living freely and in truth. Hidden Treasure invites reader to discover the fulfilment than can exist for anyone, right here, right now
Gangaji is dedicated to the recognition of peace and freedom inherent in the core of all being. An internationally renowned teacher and the author of The Diamond in Your Pocket, she is supported by her foundation's global network of volunteers. She has met with hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life in open meetings and retreats.
