“A Buddha’s Babble is a true gem. And yet, ironically, it remains Ramesh Balsekar’s most underrated book. There is such deep wisdom hidden between the easy writing and the subtle humour of these pages...”
Every ‘yoii’ are not THAT. THAT is every ‘you’.
THAT will always be there without ‘you’, but ‘you’ cannot be there without THAT.
Unless this is very clearly understood, every seeker will want to be ‘one with THAT and will, therefore, be frustrated. What is to be very clearly understood is that every individual entity is connected to THAT Source. And the highest understanding is that every human being, in his daily living, must continuously remain connected to THAT Source and never be disconnected from it.
The individual entity - the Ego - gets disconnected from the Source whenever he considers himself or the ‘other’ as the doer of some action, and blames and condemns him for some action. The connection finally ends when the body dies and the Ego no longer exists as a separate entity.
In A Buddha’s Babble, Ramesh Balsekar uses pithy writing, telling parables and large doses of humour to get this point across. Such is the magic of his writing that no reader can remain untouched by its inherent wisdom.
