Description
About the Book

In German universities there is a tradition of honouring a beloved professor. This is done by compiling letters and articles by students who have carried on correspondence with him over the years. These contributions are edited, bound in a book and presented to him. This compilation, called Festschrift, is an expression of deep appreciation for the teacher.

Like a large immoveable rock: Letters from disciples of a modern sage is a book of accounts written by friends Advaita sage Ramesh Balsekar, narrating how their lives have been influenced by his Teaching.

In its you will find the words of several men and women for whom awakening has occurred. For a few other disciples the search has ended, but the fruit is not yet ready to fall. Ramesh has said that awakening means the permanent and complete annihilation of the sense of doer ship. (By doer ship what he means is the sense of identity, the egoic structure, the conceptual framework and attendant memories of the self.) And for yet other, the meeting with Ramesh brought recognition that he was the guru they had been seeking.

As Ramesh points out, Advaita Vedanta deals with the final impediment – the illusory self, the very one seeking enlightenment.
