Cesar not returning to Tiruvannamalai


Another teacher, Cesar Teruel, who would come to Tiruvannamalai for the winter season, is not returning to India. This seem significant, given his story about Sri Ramanasramam. He was sent there by Sathya Sai Baba, and, according to his account, there, in front of the statue of Ramana Maharshi, he experienced a deep and spontaneous shift in consciousness.

A few months later, returning to the ashram of Sathya Sai Baba, Caesar met Sri Ratan Lal, a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba, and decided to stay with him and follow him as his teacher. According to Cesar, Sri Ratan Lal guided him to regain the same experience that he had in Ramana Maharshi Ashram through the question "Who am I?" or Self Enquiry.

Since July 2005, after his teacher, passed away, following his teacher’s request, Cesar has been conducting public Satsang in south India, both in Puttaparthy and Tiruvannamalai. He also gives satsang in Europe, Ukraine and Russia. Recently he started offering satsang in Thailand, where he will be this season, instead of Tiruvannamalai.


Here is his notice from his web site:

I heard people are already buying tickets to attend my talk
in India next year so I have to inform in advance
I will no longer go to India.

The city of Hua Hin in Thailand will be the place
where the talks will take place in winter from January till March.

I know I mentioned in Tiruvannamalai last time
I was going to come back next year
but life circumstances are not allowing this to happen again.

    People may say all kinds of things, that they have experienced this or that – that may be true or not. When people claim that they have been requested to give satsang, who is there to confirm or deny it? Ratanlal always stressed that he is no teacher, and hence has no disciples. He stressed that he was just sharing what the Divine (Sai) Baba had taught him. He was humble, a seeker amongst seekers. Nowadays there seem to be lots of so called teachers. Some claim to be disciples of one or the other. Others claim to be of the lineage of this or the other. Who is there to deny it?

      Whatever the case, best is to see (and hear and notice the peace that may or may not come to you) for yourself. Words of others are not nearly so good as your own direct experience.

    To me bhagavan is with me all the time.

    When I check into my office first thing i do is open Ramana Ashram website check ‘Quote of the day’ and leave the brower open and continue with my work. In between i keep checking the quotes. And the picture of bhagavan and flash images of Arunachala.

    I do visit Ashram when I can and try make it regular despite attachements in life.

    Is there anyone comes to Tiruvannamalai and does not experience a considerable shift in consciousness ?

    Ramana would ask something along the lines….”who is it that is experiencing this shift in consciousness ? Find out…”

    And so his simple message endures while these ones experience their considerable shifts in travel planning !
