Ramesh Balsekar Thoughts on Enlightenment

From enlightenment one attains real bliss. Real bliss is the absence of even wanting the bless. It is total acceptance or total surrender. With total acceptance there is surge of great tranquility, peace and trust. Enlightenment is an understanding in phenomenality of what the position is. It is an understanding pure and simple in which there is no comprehender and no one to surrender anything. This understanding can only come at the proper time and no one can say when. So long as there is expectation and a ‘me’ wanting, it is difficult that it may occur. Enlightenment is the removal of the identification with the individual body-mind-mechanism. In a jnani (the enlightened one) there is no separate doer. All concepts have ceased. All that has changed is the jnani’s attitude, the perspective and understanding. A jnani merely witnesses. A jnani witnesses even his role. A jnani witnesses all the reaction, without getting involved. He does not react nor does he accept.
