What do you expect out of enlightenment ? or what do you expect enlightenment to be ? Ramesh addresses this question and presents his concepts of 'Impersonal Consciousness' and 'No One is a Doer', as 'be all and end all' of enlightenment.
I have read "Consciousness Speaks", and "Sin and Guilt, Monstrocity of Mind", both by Ramesh before reading "The Ultimate Understanding". The first two books are more easy to read and understanding. I visited Sri Ramesh in Mumbai, India and listened to 4 of his talks on audio cassettes. All that helped me while reading "The Ultimate Understanding". Even then, I do not seem to have understood what all is presented in the book.It is more like snippets of thoughts under various chapter headings which need deeper contemplation. It needs more patience and prior knowledge to understand "Ultimate Understanding", as it is not a continuous story.
I would recommend any one to read "Consciousness Speaks" and "Sin and Guilt, Monstrocity of Mind", before attempting "The Ultimate Understanding".
This book is dedicated to the great T.G. Gray, also known as Wei Wu Wei. Ramesh Balsekar is one of those rare sages from India who has adapted his terminology to the Western language and understanding. So, if you want an introduction in Advaita Vedanta, Ramesh' book is a perfect starter, and may bring you to the river's edge.
On page 57, Ramesh writes:
"there is no 'me' to make any spiritual effort".
