Is there any such thing as free will? Is everything in life predetermined? Does God play dice with the universe? Questions that intrigue seekers of the truth, are answered with great insight, sincere earnestness and absolute clarity in Ramesh's typical free-flowing dialogues, spiced with his delightful good humor, during the morning 'satsangs' or meetings with visitors from all over the world.
Through his teaching, Ramesh exposes the sense of personal doership as the root cause of all suffering. He describes how the process of this simple understanding can lift the burden of a life of struggle, and the peace and tranquility that can arise when one learns to accept totally what life offers, at any given moment, with grace and ease.
When asked how long it takes to grasp this understanding, Ramesh answered, "Three Days. Three Days!" So, here is a taste of a modern sage's daily talks, over three days, with visitors at his residence in Mumbai.
