Gangaji's Foundation
“There is a certain point when the desire to serve something is more important than the desire to get something. That is a secret, wonderful moment. This is where we meet.” ~Gangaji​​
Those serving within and through Gangaji’s Foundation play an essential role that Gangaji could never play.  When we are inspired by the gratitude in our hearts, we help this beacon of freedom burn ever brighter. Gangaji, the staff, and this passionate community wholeheartedly welcome your participation and support in making this invitation available to all who are interested.

About Gangaji's Foundation

Filled with gratitude for the recognition that her teacher, Papaji, had pointed her to, Gangaji asked him how she could truly thank him. He said, “Give your life to this.” Without having any idea what that would mean, she said “yes.” That was in 1990.

Gangaji's first meetings were held in her own living room. As word spread, the meetings got larger and Gangaji knew she needed help. With welcoming, open arms, volunteers and donors stepped forward, and in 1993 the Gangaji Foundation was established with a small staff.

New volunteers and contributors showed up to record and transcribe meetings, to publish and translate books into other languages, to provide scholarships, host video groups, and send free books to those living behind bars. With emerging digital technologies, new opportunities arrived, connecting us all across the globe.

Today, the community continues its work, bringing this message of peace to new mediums—Gangaji’s website, podcasts, social media and live video streaming. Remarkably, now people can access an online video library and meet and speak with Gangaji online, not in her living room, but in their own.

"In 1990, I found myself in the room at Gangaji’s very first meeting. Since that lucky day, I have witnessed the unfolding of this invitation to freedom through the Gangaji Foundation. As an original Board member, I have seen the remarkable continuity and consistency in the message and in the dedication of those who receive it. We all stand on the shoulders of volunteers and donors who have come before (many still here!), and we contribute our spirit and passion as we move forward." — Suman Pregerson (with Gangaji in above, early 90s.)

“When I had lost my grip on the tolerance of my physical body being confined to the penitentiary, your Universal Love, graciously swooped down and embraced my heart with the AWARENESS OF OUR HEART.”
