Uncovering the Truth in Your Life Story
An inspiring book from one of our greatest living spiritual teachers.
Just as the life stories of the Buddha and Christ have served those on the spiritual path for millennia, our own lives can serve as important teaching stories. In Hidden Treasure, one of the great spiritual teachers of our time, Gangaji, uses the telling of her own life story to help readers unveil the truth in their own.
Antoinette (Toni) Roberson Varner was given the name Gangaji by her teacher Sri H. W. L. Poonja in 1990. Before that meeting, she had pursued many paths to enlightenment. Raised in the 1950s in the racially divided South, she married young and had a daughter. Following the dissolution of her first marriage, she moved to Northern California and immersed herself in the spiritual culture that was flourishing there; but her efforts to achieve lasting fulfillment ultimately fell short. In the wake of her disillusionment, she made a final prayer for help. The answer to her prayer came unexpectedly, taking her to India and to the meeting that would change everything. On the banks of the River Ganges, she met Poonja, also known as Papaji, who opened her mind to the eternal presence of being.
“Gangaji is one of the smartest, clearest, and most poetic spiritual leaders of our time. Her writing in Hidden Treasure is compassionate, transparent, generous, and ruthless….[it] brings me home to the truth of who I am in seconds.”—Alanis Morissette, Grammy Award–winning singer and songwriter
“This gently flowing but often disarming volume invites readers to examine the narratives that shape them, and is a call to pass beyond personal stories to find a deeper, more universal self.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
