Who knows GangaJi?

I just got a notification that my Hindi meetup group is going to a meditation event given by Gangaji, so I went to the website and saw a white woman.

I have never heard of this woman, but I'm intrigued, so I think I'll go to the event and see what it's all about. The event is next Friday evening.

Here is her website
And some quick info:

"Antoinette (Toni) Roberson Varner was given the name Gangaji by her teacher H.W.L. Poonja in 1990. Before that meeting, she had spent decades searching for lasting happiness.

Gangaji shares a simple message-This is an invitation to shift your allegiance from the activities of your mind to the eternal presence of your being. Gangaji travels the world speaking to seekers from all walks of life. A teacher and author, she shares her direct experience of the essential message she received from Papaji and offers it to all who want to discover a true and lasting fulfillment. Through her life and words, she powerfully articulates how it is really possible to discover the truth of who you are and to be true to that discovery."

This should be a great example of how Hinduism is universal, available for all people of all races because underneath our ethnicities, we have the same soul.


  1. डियर अम्बा ,

    आपके पोस्ट के title को देख कर पहले तो लगा कि आप पवित्र नदी गंगा के बारे मे बात कर रहीं है । यहां भारत मे गंगा नदी को सम्मान व आदर के साथ गंगाजी भी कहा जाता है ।
    गंगाजी फाउंडेशन की जानकारी के लिये आपका धन्यवाद ।

  2. Hahaha, you're right, that title is rather misleading.

    I'll have to read more closely on the website and see if there was a reason she was given that name.

    I'll let you know what the talk it like!
