Explorations into the Eternal : Forays into the Teaching of Nisargadatta Maharaj

Ramesh S. Balsekar, in this volume, reaches beyond the communication of past knowledge to a creative exploration of the teachings of Nisargadatta Maharaj, inspired by the thirst of other seekers for enlightenment. In his contemplations upon the sentience of the human spirit, Balsekar has used Maharaj's wisdom as the touchstone for his own ventures into the realm of conscious and unconscious. This book forms the third work in Balsekar's trilogy which has been aimed at fulfilling Maharaj's personal enjoinder to "write and talk about my teaching". In the earlier volumes he offered insights into the teachings (Pointers from Nisargadatta Maharaj), and textual applications (a close examination of Saint Jnaneshwar's "Amritanubhava" in Experience of Immortality. These well-received scholarly writings established Balsekar as an authentic interpreter of Maharaj.

Balsekar at the last appears as the true messenger himself - daring to articulate the riddles of life-acceptance and "true seeing" which have emerged from his own internal reflections. With a new vigor in his approach and a reverence for the classics, he has become his Master's most apt spokesman: a philosophical devotee and a peerless stylist. Through Balsekar's intellectual journeys, the reader will come to experience again the gifts and greatness of Nisargadatta Maharaj's immortal work, I AM THAT. Widely acclaimed during his visits to the other countries in recent years, Balsekar's lectures have won for him a responsive audience.

About Nisargadatta Maharaj

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj was an Indian spiritual teacher and philosopher of Advaita (Nondualism), and a Guru, belonging to the Navnath Sampradaya. Sri Nisargadatta, with his direct and minimalistic explanation of non-dualism, is considered the most famous teacher of Advaita since Ramana Maharshi. In 1973, the publication of his most famous and widely-translated book, "I AM THAT", an English translation of his talks in Marathi by Maurice Frydman, brought him worldwide recognition and followers.

According to Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, the purpose of spirituality is simply to know who you are. His discussions are not for academic scholars. He is a rebellious spirit, abrupt in his style of discussion, provocative, and immensely profound, cutting to the core and wasting little effort on inessentials. He talked about the 'direct way' of knowing the Final Reality, in which one becomes aware of one's original nature through mental discrimination, breaking the mind's false identification with the ego, knowing that "You are already That".
