Ramesh S. Balsekar

Once there is a clear apprehension that an individual human being is an inseparable part of the totality of phenomenal manifestation and that he cannot pull himself out of the totality as an independent and autonomous entity, man naturally ceases to have personal intentions. When he is convinced that living is a sort of dreaming in which he cannot have any effective control either over his circumstances or his actions therein, all his tensions cease, and a sense of total freedom takes over. He then willingly and freely accepts whatever comes his way within the totality of functioning that this dream-life is.

Such a nice picture of Ramesh, but I just cant place it. The chair is his own, the heads are people sitting near his feet, like we do in his home, the flowers on the high stool could be a birthday arrangement, but the yellow curtain? Where did that come from?
