About us: We are 2 members of Ramakant Maharaj's Admin Team. This is our 3rd month here in Nashik, attending the ashram in the presence of Shri Ramakant Maharaj. We are sure that there are many like us, who have been searching for a disciple of Nisargadatta Maharaj. We are so fortunate to have found this Master, that we felt we had to tell the world about him, so (with help), we created a website www.ramakantmaharaj.net

We would like to tell all serious and dedicated Nisargadatta Maharaj followers, that a direct disciple of Nisargadatta, Ramakant Maharaj is living and actively teaching here in Nashik. Students of Advaita are, of course, included in this understanding. And if you have any questions, lingering doubts, and/or nearing the end of the journey, and wish to be in the presence of the Master.... come and be with him in Nashik!

Maharaj welcomes serious seekers with the base knowledge of Nisargadattas' teaching at the very least. You have to have read/studied "I Am That", otherwise time and energy is being wasted.

From this base knowledge you can go forward. Self-enquiry, meditation, devotion, self-abidance are all deepened as a result of being in the Masters' presence. A push is given........

Our Story: We have been following and practising the teachings of Nisargadatta Maharaj for many years. It became obvious to us that a living teacher was necessary, even essential, to "go forward" as it were, so we searched and searched for a few years specifically for a Realized disciple of Nisargadatta Maharaj who was teaching. We were told by informed sources (not naming any names), that there were no teaching disciples left. However, we knew, we had a gut feeling, that there was someone out there - there had to be. Surely nearly a third of century on from his passing there was someone....

Last year, we came across someone "in the know" on Facebook, and asked if he knew of any living disciples of Nisargadatta Maharaj who were actively teaching? He replied, saying he only knew of one - one was enough for us - Ramakant Maharaj. He is a direct disciple of Nisargadatta Maharaj and took the Naam Mantra from His Master in October 2nd 1962...over 50 years ago! He is actively teaching from his ashram in Nashik, Maharastra. We had struck gold!

After speaking to Maharaj on the phone, we Skyped with him for a few months, before planning our trip to India to meet the Master. After being in the Master's presence for a few months, all we can say is that we have found much more than we were looking for. He goes straight for the jugular, addressing issues of mind, intellect, ego, illusion, discrimination, etc. The practice is ongoing and more real and flowing. We are full of gratitude to the Master and his Master, Nisargadatta Maharaj, for the transformation that is taking place. Ramakant Maharaj says: "I am not making disciples of you, I am creating Masters."

The seeker is being slowly, silently, erased for ever!

What more to say? Jai guru!
