Ramesh is widely regarded as the world’s greatest living sage. Thousands have enjoyed meeting this spiritual master, who courteously answers questions with great heart-felt compassion and then fires finely honed arrows of truth straight into the hearts of his audience with unerring accuracy.
He has said on many occasions that his primary inspiration for exploring the spiritual life came from Ramana Maharshi; he takes up Ramana’s message and enlightens questioners by drawing upon his deep knowledge of Advaita. Advaita is the teaching of no-duality, which holds that everything is one, that we are all an intrinsic part of the universe, not separate from it. Balsekar’s words are powerful, accessible, witty and always to the point.
This anthology of the writings of Ramesh Balsekar gives thematic extracts from all of his written works to date and is approved by the sage himself, as well as by his leading disciple, Wayne Liquorman. It will serve to stimulate its readers to study more of his books and edited talks – and perhaps indeed to meet him in Mumbai.
