The Desire That Is Deeper Than Survival
May 17, 2000

Black Mountain, North Carolina

Do you desire to know the truth of your being above all else? What do you think you must do for that desire to be fulfilled? In this video from the archives, Gangaji lays out how the desire for self-knowledge, for self-realization, will never be satisfied by strategies we typically employ for our survival.

“Our training for survival is to know what we want, what that looks like, how to go for it, what are the obstacles, and how to sidestep those obstacles. This is important in the realm of survival, but we are speaking here of a desire that comes from an altogether different realm, an unnamable force that is demanding your attention. If it wasn’t, you wouldn’t be in this room.”
