Consiousness is all there is. So "Who" is to know or seek "what"? All there is is the impersonal functioning of Consciousness, or God, reflecting within Itself the totality of manifestation. Live life making decisions and accepting the consequences as if you have free will---knowing it is Consciousness seeking, doing, living, deciding...... Ramesh Balsekar is an awakened sage whose long life has been devoted to Ramana Maharshi and whose final Guru was Nisargadatta Maharaj.
Ramesh Balsekar reminds visitors that anything any sage has ever said, anything any religion or scripture has ever said is a concept. In a delightful and unique manner he shatters commonly held fantasies about truth, about seeking, about how life happens. His crystal clear and profound teachings are backed by his complete understanding that 'Nobody does anything'.
About the Author:
Ramesh S. Balsekar is a disciple of the late Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, a renowned Advaita master. From early childhood, Balsekar was drawn to Advaita, a nondual teaching, particularly the teachings of Ramana Maharshi and Wei Wu Wei. Ramesh has written over 20 books, and discusses the Indian philosophy of Advaita daily in Bombay, with visitors from around the world. The basic concept is that "all there is, is Consciousness"; all actions are happenings, the functioning of the Primal Energy, and not the doing by anyone. Ramesh frames the concepts in the context of daily living, speaking from his experience as a bank president and a family man.
