"Home is where you are."
Gangaji's classic book, Freedom and Resolve, has been republished by Hampton Roads Publishing.
In this book Gangaji invites you to examine your life and to wake up from the trance of who you think you are and experience the truth of who you really are. The resolve is not to go back into the trance by turning away from that essential experience of waking up, but to freshly inquire anew, as thoughts or feelings of separation arise.
“The secret gem of truth has been hidden in the core of your own heart all along. My invitation is to stop all movement of your mind away from truth so that you can discover directly, for yourself, this jewel that is alive within you.”
We are living in an unusual time, a time when ordinary people with limitations and conditioned habits have the opportunity to awaken to self-realization — and not only to awaken, but to stay true to what is real in the face of thoughts, emotions, desires, and other “obstacles” that may arise in consciousness. This book from Gangaji points us directly to the diamond of truth that we really are. It offers us clear support in allowing any seeming obstacle to become a conduit for deeper awakening as the diamond is “polished naturally by life itself.”
“You can see the core of yourself - the hidden treasure of yourself - in a teaching story, in my story, in your story, and all other stories.”
In this new book Gangaji uses the telling of her own life story to help readers uncover the truth of their own. Gangaji guides readers to the realization that once they can uncover and speak the truth about themselves, deep and lasting fulfilment is possible.
Gangaji often says she is just like you and me, that she would be happy to tell us if she weren't, but she is. In this book she speaks openly about her life, offering it as proof that it is possible for all of us, regardless of past history and current circumstances, to stop telling our endless stories of suffering and awaken.
Written with Roslyn Moore, Gangaji traces her life from the time she was an unhappy child in Mississippi up to the present. This is a straightforward, easy-to-read autobiography, illuminated by dozens of photographs. There is also an editor's preface describing the creation of the book, an excerpt from a satsang, a section of questions and answers, and an appendix with letters exchanged between Gangaji and her beloved Papaji.
The classic teachings of Gangaji are now available in an elegant updated collector's edition for beginning and returning students.
Formerly published as two separate paperback volumes, this new hardcover edition features new material, photos, and a foreword by Catherine Ingram, author of Passionate Presence.
