      Description:

      ‘It is not an action. It is a happening.’

      The daily talks with Ramesh Balsekar used to be an eloquent and delightful happening of the Teachings of pure Advaita (Non-duality). When the ego asked: “How can the intellectual understanding which is a conceptual understanding become the truth for me?” Ramesh would explain: “It can only be known from personal investigation and experience that ‘no action is my action’. The teaching can be of use only if it helps you to live your life in peace.” Every conversation would be new and fresh, laced with deep insights and abundant humour.

      Ramesh, a Master of Advaita, taught for over twenty years, sharing with seekers how a sage lives his life and pointing to Totality with stories and anecdotes from life as it happens. With laughter, Ramesh himself would say: “For those with an interest in the subject, it’s the most beneficial entertainment in town.”

        • ASIN : 81 88071528
        Description:

        Must the Upanishads be ‘difficult’? Actually, they are rather plain and direct. They do not construct any complex system of ideas and beliefs. Nor do they build up any elaborate picture of the world. Instead, in some what brief and uncompromising language, they ask what is plainly and simply true: beneath all the complications of our uncertain beliefs.

        This sceptical questioning was their traditional difficulty. It went against the habits of faith and obedience upon which traditional society depended.

        As a result, the Upanishads were kept traditionally secret and inaccessible. They were hidden behind a forbidding reputation: as teaching an esoteric and mystical doctrine, to be kept away from all but a few special initiates.

        Today, with our modern freedom of thought, we have learned to be more open about questioning things that are usually taken for granted. In particular, we can be more open about the kind of radical questions that the Upanishads ask.

        That is the idea of this book. To help open up the Upanishads and their radical questioning, for ordinary people.

          So you think you know all about India…its ancient history, its glorious heritage, its jaw-dropping wonders? Well, think again.

          Take architecture, building and town planning for instance. Do you know about the world’s biggest domical roof? The world’s largest monolithic statue? The world’s biggest sundial? Do you know about the hanging ceiling? The pillar without a foundation? Or about a model town 1,000 years ago? Medieval flush system latrines? And of concealed plumbing in ancient India?

          Or take literature. Do you know about the man who told two stories using one text? The oldest grammar book? The world’s longest poem? Or, for that matter, of poet Magha’s geometrical composition?

          In medicine, chances are you haven’t heard about incredible ancient surgical instruments. Or about the artificial nose created 2000 years ago. Or the curative sounds of the medicated drum.

          In science and technology, did you know of robots that existed 1000 years ago? Or the pillar that has defied rust for 1600 years? Of the journey from zero to infinity? Of the ancient technique of drilling pinholes in stones?

            Description:

            In Search of Sticks simultaneously challenges the intellect while surfacing raw emotional response. James, by the standards one generally uses to measure a life, is accomplished. Still, he twists. What if, in the final analysis, it ends up being as much about that which wasn't done rather than just what was acted upon? Paths are chosen. Steps are taken.
            A compelling parallel story unfolds - Hope's African existence. It was emphatically stated that "God does not have favourites." But is this true? A picture is painted and its canvas is littered with the likenesses of disease and poverty and the images of those trapped in the geography of violence. Despite the forms of tragedy that present themselves, this story is full of hope. The victories are told in the small tales and the sheer numbers who do not sell their souls.

              ‘“How does one thank someone who gives you: Freedom, from guilt and regrets of the past; From fears of the future; From the idea that one is not free; Trust, in the moment that has to be exactly as it is; Acceptance of and Contentment in whatever happens? This time when I met him I understood that the Guru is not loving; He is Love. He is not kind, He is compassion. And most of all, He is not in my heart; He is my Heart. For this blessing, There is no way of being grateful enough.”

                ‘With no roadmap to follow, Susan chose to face breast cancer without chemotherapy, radiation or hormone treatment. Today, after 8 years she is still enjoying superior health and is a personal and group therapist. This is her story.
                After having a quarter of her breast removed, Susan could not accept the rationalization of chemotherapy, radiation or hormone therapy.
                Forced by the lack of resource materials available for "cancer and alternative healing options", she began her courageous journey of exploring and practicing natural healing.

                In a self-guided approach, Susan is candid, honest and powerful as she taps into her inner wisdom, reconnecting to her own emotional, physical, mental and spiritual self . . . transforming her life forever!
                After regaining her health, Susan has been inspired to share her ctiallenges, insights and healing journey — she wants others to know that there IS another way to heal.

                  Description:

                  ‘You don’t need this book!’ Karl would say, ‘You stand to gain absolutely nothing from it. He would probably add he hopes nobody gains or understands anything from him. What’s more, he would mean it!

                  In Karl you encounter Advaita in its rawest form - undiluted, uncooked, unconditioned by thought and untainted by frills or more concepts. It’s bang-in-your-face, inescapable Advaita . . . ‘What-you-cannot-not-be!’
                  Jean-Paul Sartre said, ‘The Other is hell’. How does one define ‘The Other’? Are the people around us ‘The Others? Is the little echo in the mind also ‘The Other’? Who sees when the eyes open? Who defines? And then who defines the definer? Questions, questions.

                  As Karl eloquently describes it, ‘You realize yourself in the comfortin the absence and in the discomfort in the presence. Because the presence is always the experience of separation, from the beginning. Even Awareness needs an experience. The presence -separation, absence - no separation. Heaven and hell. And in both you realize yourself.’ He then takes even that away as well by saying ‘If there would be a reality in the presence or in the absence, then it will be hell again because it would be two.’
                  In his irreverent, uncompromising style Karl presents the abject futility of any and every endeavour towards finding ‘a way out’. Many newcomers scurry for cover when they encounter this ‘disheartening and cold’ approach. Some come back later, on the rare apperception of the absurdity of any ‘one’ wanting a ‘way out’! But the ones who do return, stay on to enjoy the Karl Renz circus of irrelevance: irrelevance of what is spoken, irrelevance of the listener and irrelevance of the speaker. Grace in action!
                  Karl Renz, now based in Mallorca, Spain, travels throughout the world simply responding to few of the numerous invitations to hold meetings. He has no agenda, no teaching, no techniques, and no desire for whatever gets said to be understood. To him, his talks have no special significance as being different from, say, the barking of a dog or the gibberish sounds that he sometimes makes during the talks - not different than the next sip of coffee! The next (moment), for him is simply the next, an embrace of helplessness!

                    Description:

                    This contemporary Guru Pournima tribute is a collection of favorite commentaries on the Guru-disciple relationship by Ramesh S. Balsekar conversations, letters and poems, each a profound expression of gratitude shared between Guru and disciple in this most divine and mysterious of all relationships. Guru Pournima is a celebration honoring the Guru on the auspicious full moon in July-August in the Indian month of Ashada, dating back to the ancient Indian sage Vyasa, who was born on this day. Tradition has it that the disciples of Vyasa asked him for a way to thank him and honor him for all he had given; he suggested that they dedicate the fullest full moon of the year as the Guru's moon, hence Guru Pournima.

                    This book is an offering of thankfulness to Ramesh for his modern, eloquent and simple Teachings of Advaita, non-duality. And, it is also yet another gift from Ramesh. His utterly clear Teachings, written and spoken, have touched thousands of seekers from around the world over the past 20 years. This book reflects the experience and outpouring of gratitude of so many seekers who have met and learned from Ramesh through books, letters and satsang. Each format is its own vehicle, and each equally masterful and effective in conveying Ramesh's timeless message, bringing relief from the suffering of the burden of shame and guilt, hatred and malice, jealousy and envy, which obstructs the peace that is right before us in ordinary daily living.

                      This book encapsulates the Advaita Vedanta teachings of Ramesh S. Balsekar. The first part-Gentle Hammer-features a series of aphorisms, each of which sums up one element of his teaching. Once the seeker’s ego has been weakened by this gentle but persistent hammering, the Friendly Sword is ready to finish the job.
                      This second part consists of Ramesh’s answers to 24 key questions put to him by the editor, Madhukar Thompson, at a seminar given in the idyllic surroundings of Kovalam Beach, Kerala, India.

                      The third part-Silent Arrow-is a reprint of “The Search for God-Truth-Reality,” an article that Ramesh contributed to “The Mountain Path,” a bi-yearly magazine published by the Sri Ramanashram. In this article, Ramesh manages to condense his entire teaching into a few pages. It is written with such precision and profound insight that, while reading it, the reader is led to experience silence-the highest form of teaching. The pithy aphorisms, the brevity of the question-and-answer exreacts and the zen-like clarity of the article make this book an ideal introduction to Ramesh’s teaching.

Slowly the winds rest in space, the sounds sink into silence.

                            In the throes of a global recession as economists advised fierce fiscal restraint, Rik and Zara Leaf sold their house and spent a year traveling around the world with their son Zion and daughter Riel, investing their life savings in the adventure of a lifetime.
                            The thought of abandoning conventional wisdom and getting away with it was too exciting to pass up. Of course the decision to really, go for it, involved lots of anxious “what ifs” and, “are we out of our frigging minds?”
                            The family filmed horror movies in Canada, ate mafia-made pizza in Germany, got caught sneaking onto a Hollywood set in Hawaii, survived a feral dog attack in Malaysia and dorsal fins emerging from the surf as they swam off the Australian coast.
                            Throughout the year they produced a video series called, “Where in the World are Zion & Riel?” QR codes, linked to these videos are included in the book, creating an amazing interactive reading experience

                              Are you ready to face the media?

                              When the media wants to talk to you, you can’t run and you can’t hide. All you can do is prepare.

                              Media interviews can be intimidating. Facing the unknown can be unnerving. The root cause for fear is that you exercise no control.

                              Remember, you have zero control on what the media asks. But you do have 100% control over what you answer. But for that you need to know how.

                              How will you be perceived? What key messages do you want to convey? What pitfalls must you avoid? How best can you create appropriate sound bites? Most important, how can you say what you want to say and say it effectively -- with poise and confidence?

                              It all distills down to this: what the media wants to know, what you want to convey and how to manage the interface so that, in the tightly edited version that will finally appear, your message gets through loud and clear.

                                Enstasy is neither religious nor spiritual, nor metaphysical or mystical and yet, it is all of these… a glimpse, into Higher Truths while tasting their supreme nectarine bliss...
                                Deep, profound meditations, which occurred upon the author’s return from her entry into death and Eternal life… where she had been graced to bathe within Consciousness... as Consciousness...
                                As you read and maybe re-read, delving deeper into the world of Enstasy, it is my sincere prayer that it opens a gateway into discovering your own wings of freedom, gently carrying you into that infinite expansion of consciousness, beyond limitation... leading to the ultimate goal of life…
                                Oneness with the Supreme… Your own Higher Self…

                                  “I no longer care if I get enlightened or not. In fact, I don’t care even if I do care !” Such is the seeker’s attitude just prior to the occurrence of enlightenment, according to Ramesh S. Balsekar -- a life-long devotee of Ramana Maharshi and disciple of Nisargadata Maharaj. This book -- the sequel to Enlightenment May or May not Happen-deals with a wide range of topics including karma, reincarnation, the nature of manifestation, the guru-disciple relationship and the contrast between enlightened and unenlightened experience. The central theme, however, is the spiritual search and what can or cannot be done to speed up its progress. All conversations featured in this book were recorded, transcribed and edited by Madhukar Thomson. Brimming with earnestness and authenticity, they document Ramesh’s unique ability to adapt ancient Advaita Vedanta teachings to suit the predicament of the modern-day seeker. The text is illustrated by a series of cartoons which serve to remind us that even the serious business of spirituality has its funny side, and which ensure that the book, and the seeking itself, are lively experiences, full of enjoyment and liberally sprinkled with laughter.

                                    “How can I tell if I’m making progress in my spiritual search?” “Can I speed it up at all, and if so -- how?” Answers to these and other crucial recurrent questions can be found in this book. But be warned: these answers are uncompromising and may shatter your misconceptions. Ramesh S. Balsekar -- life-long devotee of Ramana Maharshi, and disciple of Nisargadatta Maharaj-has been sharing his wisdom with seekers from all walks of life, for the past 20 years. Gently but insistently, he points to the fact that there is nothing anyone can do hasten his or her spiritual progress, because the individual seeker, the “me”-entity, just does not exist. The outcome of our spiritual search is not in our hands. Rather, it is in the hands of that power -- call it Consciousness or God-which turned us into seekers in the first place. All manifestation is a reflection of that same impersonal Consciousness, and it is That which is seeking and which does or does not become enlightened, according to Its own ineluctable functioning. Madhukar Thompson recorded, transcribed and edited all conversations featured in this book. Brimming with earnestness and authenticity, they stand as a vivid testimony to the modern-day seeker and provide invaluable insights into his/ her predicament. The text is illustrated with a series of cartoons which underscore key aspects of Sri Balsekar’s teaching. They ensure that the book, and the seeking itself, are lively experiences, full of enjoyment and liberally sprinkled with laughter.

                                      Most spiritual seekers have no real idea of what exactly it is that they are seeking -- even after having spent years chasing the chimera of Enlightenment.

                                      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.

                                      In this book Ramesh Balsekar, arguably the most renowned exponent of the ancient philosophy of Advaita today and the author of 30 well-known books, presents you a clear perspective on the self-realized state, in his hallmark lucid style.

                                      If you have believed the sage to be a glorified vegetable, passionless and neutered to all pleasure and all pain, if you have believed that he is in a never-ending state of cocooned bliss or if you have believed that there is some-‘one’ out there to enjoy that ‘blissful’ state, this book shows you just how mistaken you are.

                                      To make its point, 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. Pointers are used, insights are bestowed and cobwebs vigorously dusted away till what you are left with is a deeply satisfying clarity -- which may or may not be intellectual.

                                        Watch out. This is not another of those feel-good ‘oneness’ Advaita books. This one is a double-barrelled shotgun taking pot shots at the conceptualising mind -one barrel being fired by the great Indian mystic-sage Dattatreya (Avadhut) and the other by Karl Renz, the contemporary ‘Avadhut’. There is no escape here not just for the ‘fragmented-mind’ but also for the enlightened ‘whole-mind’!
                                        Though Echoes of Silence may come across as the quintessential playground for a relentless game of deconstructing the ‘mind’, you cannot however miss its omnipresent soothing core of Silence! Paradoxically, only Timeless, Motionless Silence echoes and pervades here despite the volley of ‘living’ words being fired by these two maverick ‘entities’ separated by centuries and geographies, who apparently have not much in common - except, perhaps, their ‘own’ non-existerice!
                                        So, what comes out of all this? Non-existing masters prattling empty words to non-existing seekers seeking non-existing liberation? Can you, as the-one-existing-now, take it?! Find out for yourself... as you set forth on this turbulent voyage, with these two bafflingly wise masters at the helm, through the treacherous seas of the mind. Survival is not guaranteed - for any ‘one’!
                                        And the good part? You survive, no complaints. You perish, no complaints again. You simply cannot find ‘the complainer’ here complaining to anyone about anything at all. All that remains is the carefree bliss of the eternal song of the duet of one... or none.

                                          I am not, but the apparent universe is my self. We all sentient beings are, Activated as puppets, mere concepts. We exist in each other's consciousness, As mere objects, mere appearances. Our existence is in Mind, is in constant Flow of Thoughts As mere concepts, Dreamlike existence. There is neither seer nor seen. There is only seeing, the function of seeing. All beings are mere illusory concepts. We are not the performer of any act, or any thought. Acts and thoughts are merely happening as conceptual functioning of totality. Every event, situation, every being, every happening is a miracle.

                                            Of course, he does, Otherwise how would the mechanism of daily living operate? In fact, total free will is the very basis of daily living. Whether it was the caveman three thousand years ago or you today, the human being has been free to decide what to do in a given situation. However, is it everyone’s personal experience that what happens thereafter- the result or consequence of that action -- has never been in anybody’s control. So where does that leave free will? It free will a tool for self-evolvement? Is it a device for the human being to accept responsibility for his actions? Or is it merely anational boon which is worthless is worthless in daily living?

                                            Ramesh S. Balsekar discusses the issue threadbare in his crisp and lucid style and comes up with amazing insights which could forever change the way you perceive your free will.

                                              Can Spiritual Understanding be imparted through letters?

                                              It’s a long-distance love affair. The Master is in Mumbai, most of his disciples thousands of miles away. The Teaching deals with Advaita, or non-duality. And as the Teaching gently seeps deeper, doubts and questions sprout; and often, the only way the disciple can seek guidance from the Master is through mail. The correspondence that flows is truly remarkable since it is both subjective and objective, unique and universal, personal and impersonal. To the disciple the correspondence may denote letters from one individual to another. For the Master, they are merely words emanating from Consciousness to Consciousness. Consciousness Writes offers you the fragrance of Advaitic teaching and a rare glimpse into the Master-disciple relationship -- enveloped in the warmth of intimacy and the sparkle of Ramesh’s wit.
