Since retiring as president of the Bank of India, has been teaching Advaita (non-duality) for over twenty years to seekers from around the world. He has also written a number of books on Advaita. In the conversations in this book Ramesh points to the 'intrinsic closeness' between modern physics, Hinduism and Buddhism in their similar recognition of the 'Unbroken Wholeness' of the manifest universe. In the context of his concept of how life happens, Ramesh answers the question: "What is it that distinguishes a sage from an ordinary person?" His answer: "A sage enjoys the shanti (peace) of nirvana while living his life in the samsara of dukkha (misery)." In the conversations Ramesh opens the way to freedom from bondage to the conceptual universe.
