"I no longer care if I get enlightened or not. In fact, I dont care even if I do care !" Such is the seekers 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.
