Publisher's Summary

The Diamond in Your Pocket, the first major book release from Gangaji, describes our never-ending search to find fulfillment, which, paradoxically, is already present if we will only stop long enough to discover its true source.

"I have discovered that it is actually impossible to find happiness," Gangaji explains. "As long as you are seeking to find happiness somewhere, you are overlooking where happiness is...in your true nature." With The Diamond in Your Pocket, the American-born teacher who has influenced the lives of thousands through her retreats and public events helps us to reconcile the observations and questions that arise along the spiritual path.

Like a precious gem, The Diamond in Your Pocket cuts through what is false, and illuminates what is true, through a brilliant series of contemplations and insights you will want to hold dear and return to again and again. Gangaji shows us, thought-by-thought, how to stop the endless activity of our minds and experience the brilliance and radiance of who we really are in every present moment.

    "Beyond words"

    I am not a "follower" of sages or guru's... however, when truth is shared, the energy of love that is being emitted is self evident. Diamond... speaks to a deeper part of myself beyond the minds incessant desire to figure out what to do or who to be... it just is. I understand this may be an obscure review however, if you are so called to be here reading reviews ... feel into what brought you here... what is beckoning?

    I highly recommend listening to Gangaji's voice ... although there isn't a lot of variation in her tonality ... the resonance of love / truth is without a doubt heard loud and clear!

    "Diamond in Pocket"

    This is one of the best and straight forward explanations on the art of living. It is a must hear for anyone on the path of truth. I believe that it is one of those "pieces" that can be listened to again and again and still it seems fresh and vibrant. I can't say enough positive about it.

    Story
    "Timeless Wisdom"

    Gangaji is an American-born spiritual teacher who expresses non-dualist teaching in a very direct, personal, and accessible way. She writes, "This is an invitation into the core of your being. It is not about religion or lack of religion. It is not even about enlightenment or ignorance. It is about the truth of who you are, which is closer and deeper than anything that can be named. In any moment, in a split second, there is the possibility of recognizing the boundless, limitless, eternal divine truth of yourself...The recognition of this truth is what this book is about." I couldn't convey the subject of this book any better.

    "When the student is ready...."

    When the student is ready the teacher will appear. This is not a book for everyone but if you are ready for this teaching, it will change you. It is a teaching of self realization and Love. Beautiful truth!

    A storyteller, reader, and writer (in that chronological order) since childhood, Audible helps me to bring all 3 together.

    "A Spiritual Classic"

    I'm convinced that this book will someday be regarded as one of the great spiritual classics of our time. Simple, yet subtle and profound, it is the very finest distillation of Gangaji's own teachings, and of what is sometimes called The Perennial Philosophy. Original in its approach, yet universal in its appeal, it speaks to us from a realm of truth that transcends all belief-systems. It can be used in conjunction with any religious path, provided that it is a path open to radical trans-dualist insight. Penetrating psychological insights and breath-taking spiritual insights harmonize in a way which can change lives.
    However, the author reads rather fast at times, and in spite of her admirable simplicity of language, the meaning of the text is so dense and rich that I recommend also buying the print book. In any case, many passages require listening to over and over again.

    I am a male in my early 50's. At this point I only listen to non-fiction audiobooks, primarily those dealing with spirituality and self-improvement. Audiobooks have had a huge positive influence in my life over the past year!

    "Best suited for the more advanced spiritual reader"

    I have read and taken away much good from books by Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Louise Hay, Gary Renard and others. In listening to this book, it became evident the material is at a deeper level than what I have been exposed to. While at times I found the going difficult, the struggle was worth it. I will need to listen to this book multiple times to grasp all of the concepts covered. In summary I will say if you are just starting out in your spiritual quest, perhaps this is not the best book for you. Come back later, but do come back.

    "Difficult to Follow"

    The reader of this sound more depressed than anyone I could ever imagine.(flat monotone) I did listen to it as I was working, but I doubt I would have finished it otherwise. There were some interesting thoughts to contemplate here and there, but this book, if read at all, would have been better served by reading the physical edition.

    "Could have been better.."

    Though the message was reasonably positive the reading could have been a bit more upbeat.
