Gentle Hammer, Friendly Sword, Silent Arrow

Madhukar Thompson (Author)
Synopsis 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 extracts and the zen-like clarity of the article make this book an ideal introduction to Ramesh's teaching.

About the author

Madhukar Thompson

A native of Germany, Berthold Madhukar Thompson left the West in 1980 after achieving success as a businessman, becoming a fervent disciple of Osho. After his master died in January 1990, Thompson became a student of Sri H.W.L Poonja, and served as his personal assistant. On several occasions, Poonjaji publicly declared that Thompson had attained enlightenment, but he eventually left his teacher, believing him to be mistaken. The author has since 1993 pursued an ever-deepening dialogue with enlightened adepts throughout India and in the U.S. In the meantime, Thompson wrote seven books and eight cartoon books. Today he teaches Vedanta mainly in China and Taiwan. He lives in India and Hawaii.
