Jacobs, Ramesh S. Balsekar and Alan
Ramesh S. Balsekar is known and loved by seekers from around the world as an eloquent Master of Advaita, or Nonduality. After retiring as President of the Bank of India, Ramesh translated many of the daily talks given in Marathi by his Guru Nisargadatta Maharaj. The teaching began in 1982 after Maharaj had twice directed him to talk, and since then he has written over twenty books on Advaita. Ramesh is widely regarded as undeniably unique and uncompromising in his presentation of the concepts, and for the clarity and 'purity' of the teaching. He lives in Mumbai, India.
