So, you’ve come at last, have you? These words, uttered by Nisargadatta Maharaj, greeted Ramesh Balsekar the first moment he entered Maharaj’s tiny loft room near the red-light district in Bombay.

Capturing the spontaneity, wit profound wisdom and incisive intuition that was Nisargadatta Maharaj, Balsekar distills the essence of Maharaja’s teaching.

Having never met the sage until that day, Ramesh thought Maharaj must be talking to someone else-but there was no one else there. Thus began the relationship that would lead to Ramesh’s transformative awakening. Aged 60 and recently retired from his position as President of Bank of India, Ramesh began attending Maharaj’s daily talks, eventually serving as a translator for the growing number of westerners drawn to Maharaj by publication of his book, I am that, Within one year of meeting Maharaj, awakening happened.

The writings in this book, Ramesh’s first, were spontaneous, the notes of a devotees reflecting on his Master’s teaching. Not written with an eye toward publication, nevertheless the respected editor and publisher of I Am That, Sudhakar Dikshit, looked at the manuscript and convinced Ramesh it should be published.
