Give Your Burden to the Ganga

Give Your Burden to the Ganga Give Your Burden to the Ganga - Gangaji in Varanasi with woman

January 27, 1994, Varanasi, India

This video from Gangaji’s visit to India in 1994 was filmed on a sandbar in the middle of the Holy River Ganges (Ganga). With the river and the ancient city of Varanasi as backdrop, Gangaji answers questions about the desire to be present in the moment, the desire to simply be, the desire to give up this game of up and down that we take so seriously.

“Relax. Stop chasing any thought that you are not already present, not already being. Stop separating yourself out. You are that which is always present. Presence is eternal. To try to ‘be present’ already assumes that you are not. This assumption is a lie, and this lying is exhausting. Rest in ‘I am,’ and see if there is any lack of presence.”

Let the Oneness Be You

Let the Oneness Be You

Do you feel that your life circumstances, or certain aspects of your personality, or your struggle with difficult emotions, exclude you from wholeness? Do you believe that in order to realize wholeness you must somehow “contain” the totality of divinity within yourself? In this compilation of monologues and interactions, Gangaji directs you to “Give it up! Stop trying to contain the whole in a part. The part is contained within the whole.”

“As an ordinary person, you can recognize what is free, conscious, and in love—even in an ordinary person.”

The Answer is Alive in You

The Answer is Alive in You

“Anything that comes and goes is ultimately not trustworthy. What does not come and go? This is the discovery.
Then trust is really a surrender to telling the truth about what is always here. Then it gets very simple.”

In this clip Gangaji demonstrates that her role in your life is to support you in discovering for yourself that the answer is alive in you. Check and see. As she says, no one can check for you.

Surrendering to Love

Surrendering to Love
Our hearts have been broken. And they will be broken. The more you surrender to love the more your heart will be broken. It’s not like your heart gets unbroken over and over. No. Broken. More and deeper. And there will be pain. So what? If your life is about protection from pain, your life is about suffering. I love. I, love. I love. What freedom!
