Ramesh Balsekar is widely regarded as the world's greatest living sage. He has said on many occasions that his primary inspiration for exploring the spiritual life came from Ramana Maharshi; he takes up Ramana's teaching and enlightens questioners from the advanced level of his Advaitic teaching, the teaching of non-duality. This anthology of the writings of Ramesh Balsekar gives thematic extracts from all of his own written works to date and is approved by the sage himself, as well as his leading disciple, Wayne Liquorman, and will serve to stimulate its readers to study more of his books and edited talks - and indeed to meet him in Mumbai.
Ramesh S. Balsekar is known and loved by seekers from around the world as an eloquent Master of Advaita, or Nonduality. After retiring as President of the Bank of India, Ramesh translated many of the daily talks given in Marathi by his Guru Nisargadatta Maharaj. The teaching began in 1982 after Maharaj had twice directed him to talk, and since then he has written over twenty books on Advaita. Ramesh is widely regarded as undeniably unique and uncompromising in his presentation of the concepts, and for the clarity and 'purity' of the teaching. He lives in Mumbai, India.
