"Papaji's words are signposts merely pointing. It is up to you to come into direct experience with the truth, it is up to you to 'Wake up and Roar.' The fact that you have found this book or it has somehow found you, means that you are being led by Grace. I urge you to go all the way with an open mind and an open heart."

~Prince Ea

Listen to Prince Ea's audio foreword to the book here:


Eli, Papaji, and GangajiAfter an 18 year search through all the major spiritual traditions and teachers, in 1990 I landed in Delhi in my search for a true teacher. This slide show was shot as I searched until finding a living Buddha in Lucknow. I narrate as I take you on the journey through India to the final meeting with Papaji, a then unknown teacher in the West.

~ Eli Jaxon-Bear

Wake Up and Roar reveals the final truth of how to realize yourself and live a life of fulfillment and love.

We have created a short video of never before seen footage that is only available here.

Before Eli brought a video camera with him to India, there were no audios or videos of Papaji’s satsang. This video contains never before seen footage of Gangaji, when she was still Toni, walking along the River Ganga on her way to her first meeting with Papaji; Eli asking Papaji a question from behind the camera at Papaji’s home, and Gangaji’s final question to Papaji, in satsang beside the river Ganga (where he calls her Miss Toni). It also includes a private meeting with Papaji at his dining room table in Lucknow, as he gives Gangaji a teaching that is never spoken in public.

It is truly beautiful to witness both Gangaji’s and Eli’s love for their teacher in these rare clips.

Please sign up and we will send you an email for accessing the video. Your email will never be shared with anyone.

After a search took him around the world and into many traditions and practices, Eli Jaxon-Bear’s path and his search ended when he was pulled to India in 1990, where he met his final teacher, Papaji. Confirming Eli’s realization, his teacher sent him back into the world to share his unique psychological insights into the nature of egoic suffering in support of selfrealization. Eli infuses the teaching with his teacher’s living transmission of silence. He presents a unique map of egoic identification as a vehicle for ruthless self-inquiry and final realization of true freedom. He dedicates his life to passing on the transmission of his teacher. Eli currently meets people and teaches through the Leela Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to world peace and freedom through universal self-realization.


Gangaji is an internationally renowned teacher and author dedicated to sharing a path of freedom through self inquiry. In 1990, the answer to her final prayer for true help came unexpectedly, taking her to India. There on the banks of the river Ganga, she met Papaji, who opened the floodgates of her self-recognition. Today, Gangaji travels the world speaking to people from all walks of life. She powerfully articulates how it is possible to directly experience the truth of who you are and in that, discover true peace and lasting fulfillment. Her books include: The Diamond in Your Pocket: Discovering Your True Radiance; Hidden Treasure: Uncovering the Truth in Your Life Story; and You Are THAT! Satsang with Gangaji.
