HAPPY YULETIDE to all our bloggers
Dhyan Hareesh (Madhukar Thompson) was a sannyasin who some of us knew. He was a good cartoonist, with an independent bent of mind. He died when drivng his motorbike in an accident in India in 2011. It was a tragedy. He was in love with advaita vedanta.
Maadhukar records in his book ‘A Seeker’s Quest for Enlightenment’ an answer from Ramesh Balshekar to the question, How do you feel about people who come to you from the Osho ashram in Poona?
Ramesh says: What do I feel about them. Nothing. Whether they come to visit me from Poona or from Switzerland1 From Poona, from Lucknow, from Kerala – makes no difference to me.
Question: do you have any message for those people form Poona?
Ramesh: Do I have a message? Certainly! A very simple message: if you are able to accept that everything happens according to the will of God, then you will be a happier person. That is the message.
BUT it is not in your hands as to whether you are able to accept this or not. This is what the Americans call the bottom line. Is it your will or God’s will? IT is God’s will! That’s the bottom line.
