The struggle with addiction can generate a tremendous amount of mental suffering. In the willingness for vulnerability with oneself, that suffering has a chance to be freed. Gangaji responds to a question about addiction, while compassionately pointing to the deeper addictions of self-hatred and self-denial.

"All addiction is a misguided search for spiritual knowledge. At a certain point you realize that searching for yourself in this way has only brought deeper suffering, self-hatred, and self-denial. At that point you have the opportunity to stop all searching and burn up in the impulse to escape."
