Even if you have all the success, fame and money you want and the good health to enjoy it – are you happy and fulfilled? Why is it that we find ourselves seeking something more from life – all the time? Ramesh Balsekar says that, at some time or the other, each one of us has had a taste of what that is: an uninterrupted experience of peace and harmony. He also shows how we can arrive at this constant state of calm in our ordinary, daily living.

A simple examination of one’s personal experience will reveal that what usually disrupts the peace and harmony in life is a thought about something we think we – or someone else – should or shouldn’t have done. Hence, a massive load of guilt and shame for oneself, or hatred and malice for the other, is perpetuated. By simply investigating one’s own experience, it is possible to get relief from this bondage. What mystics have said for ages, is here viewed from the perspective of modern living: that actions are ‘happenings’ and not something ‘done’ by someone. This understanding is what actually contributes to and helps us in discovering the state of equanimity and peace, which we most ardently seek.

Try it, and you will see how simple it really is.

Ramesh S. Balsekar

Ramesh S. Balsekar (1917-2009) is known and loved by seekers from around the world as an eloquent Master of Advaita (Non-duality). After retiring as President of the Bank of India, he translated into English, many of the daily talks given in Marathi by his Guru Nisargadatta Maharaj. He began spreading the teaching in1982 after Maharaj had twice directed him to talk. After this, he wrote over 30 books on Advaita as well. Ramesh is widely regarded as an undeniably unique and uncompromising teacher in his presentation of the concepts, in keeping with an early premonitory remark by Maharaj that as a teacher Ramesh would not be "parroting" the words of his Guru. The basic concept of Ramesh’s teaching is that, “All there is, is Consciousness”; all actions are happenings – the functioning of the Primal Energy and not the doing by anyone. He framed his concepts in the context of daily living, from his experience as a bank president and a family man.
