What do you expect Enlightenment to give you that you did not have already? What is the difference between a sage and an ordinary person? What is the ego? Ramesh S. Balsekar, author of more than 30 books published in various languages all over the world, clarifies here that "you" cannot have an ego, from which you seek freedom.
You are the ego, the separate entity, the seeker who seeks the freedom of enlightenment, and finally arrives at the successful conclusion that what he is actually seeking is freedom from his sense of personal doership. Biological reaction is not the ego's reaction.
