Ramesh S. Balsekar, an awakened sage, discusses the philosophy of Advaita with an inspired clarity. Speaking and writing in English, he has authored over twenty books and has spoken with seekers daily from his Mumbai home for the last two decades, offering unique insight into the basic permise of this philosophy, that all there is is Consciousness.
This is an English translation of a Marathi classic "Amritanubhava" by Jnaneshwar, a 13th century saint-poet of Maharashtra, India. This is one of the earliest texts of Advaita Vedanta. "… is perhaps the brightest gem among the Advaita classics, brilliantly expounded here by Balsekar in his illuminating commentary in the light of the teaching of his master, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj."

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.
