1 Madhukar Thompson
Enlightenment
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 0966524527 / 9780966524529; Softcover; New; 
“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. Printed Pages: 318. 111628

2 Madhukar Thompson
Enlightenment May or May Not Happen
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 0966524519 / 9780966524512; Softcover; New; 
“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. Printed Pages: 300. 111627

3 Ramesh S. Balsekar, Edited By Madhukar Thompson
Enlightenment May or May Not Happen: Talks on Enlightenment with Ramesh S. Balsekar
Zen Publications; Mumbai, India; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 
The whole problem is that the individual seeks enlightenment as an object which can bring happiness, or the cessation of unhappiness. But so long as there is a 'me' seeking enlightenment, enlightenment cannot happen." This book, and its sequel Enlightenment? Who Cares!, document the teachings of Ramesh S. Balsekar, as expressed in response to questions regarding the spiritual search and related issues. In conversations recorded during his daily teaching sessions, Ramesh repeatedly affirms the impersonal nature of life and seeking. As the spiritual search progresses, the seeker's identification with the fictitious "me"-entity weakens until there is no one left to care whether enlightenment happens or not. "When you come to that stage, it is likely that enlightenment will happen at any time." A series of humorous cartoons accompany the transcripts, underscoring key aspects of the teachings they illustrate. Printed Pages: 300. 017361

5 Madhukar Thompson
Gentle Hammer, Friendly Sword, Silent Arrow
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 0966524535 / 9780966524536; Softcover; New; 
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. Printed Pages: 184. 111633
