It stands to reason that if you want something desperately you would take great pains to find out what it did for those who have ‘got’ it. So if you desire Enlightenment, it would make abundant sense to at least check out what the ‘Enlightened’ ones have to say about the state of self-realization. That is what Enlightened Living does for you.
Enlightened Living presents an impressive array of Masters – from Adi Shankara to Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, from Ashtavakra to Ramana Maharshi, from Jnaneshwara to Nisargadatta Maharaj and Sengtsan – to share with you, in the simplest terms possible, the reality of the state of self-realization.
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.
