The Spanish edition of 'Be With You', ('Estar Contigo - Realidad sin Pensamiento'), a pocket-sized book of Spontaneous Quotations from the Self-Realized Master, Shri Ramakant Maharaj, has just been published. It is available from Amazon in both Kindle and p/b format. 'Don't be fooled by the size of this book! The content has enormous import', said the editor, Ann Shaw. 'These teachings have the power to cut through all our comfortable illusory concepts and awaken Reality within us'. Shri Ramakant's Admin Team spoke of this timely translation that will introduce many Spanish-speaking seekers to Maharaj's teachings. 'This Master is as yet unknown to the majority of seekers. He is an authentic, rare, Self-Realized Master who spent nearly 20 years with the legendary Nisargadatta Maharaj. This translation is also important for the Hispanic population, as Maharaj is due to visit the States in September'. 'Be With You' is a unique and forceful book containing authentic and essential, non-dual teachings in a user-friendly format, so that the ego can be hammered continuously as we go about our daily business. These utterances are not only unique, they are pragmatic. They come from Thoughtless Reality, direct from Source, keeping us alert and reminding us of our true identity, so that the attractions of the illusory world are kept at bay', said Ann. 'Estar Contigo' paves the way for the larger book (at 450pp), of Maharaj's teachings, entitled 'EL SER SIN SER: Conversaciones con Shri Ramakant Maharaj' which will be published shortly. This book is the Spanish translation of 'Selfless Self: Talks with Shri Ramakant Maharaj which was published last year to great acclaim.

BWW Review: DIRTY DANCING - A Lackluster, Disappointing Version of the Iconic Film
by Christina Mancuso - May 18, 2016

Spectacular dancing, heartfelt story, brilliant actors, classic songs.... The iconic film, DIRTY DANCING had all the makings to translate seamlessly onto the stage. However, unfortunately, it failed to deliver on all accounts. Written and conceived by Eleanor Bergstein, who has little to no previous stage experience, DIRTY DANCING is a lackluster and disappointing version of the far superior original. Perhaps it would've been best to leave Baby in the corner. (more...)

Brill Publishers to Launch Reference Work 'Textual History of the Bible'
by BWW News Desk - Mar 26, 2016

The Bible is where it all began. Judaism would not be what it is today without the Bible. This foundation of Judaism has been transmitted and translated by both Jews and Christian over three millennia. The Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient witnesses show that scribes and translators have created manifold texts and Translations. While doing so they wrote and rewrote the texts, inserted their interpretations and occasionally even erred. The so-called 'text of the Bible' has a multitude of ancient Translations. The scholars, students and the interested public that want to be informed about these areas are often at a loss in their search for an appropriate reference work. Until today there was no such comprehensive reference work to study the Bible in its many versions and to understand its complicated textual history. (more...)

French Edition of SELFLESS SELF is Now Available
by BWW News Desk - Apr 18, 2016

The French edition of 'Selfless Self: Talks with Shri Ramakant Maharaj' has just been published. 'Le Soi Sans Rien: Entretiens avec Shri Ramakant Maharaj' follows 'Je Suis'. Alan Jacobs, President of Ramana Maharshi Foundation UK, was the first person to announce: 'Ramakant Maharaj is Nisargadatta Maharaj's successor, and 'Selfless Self', the natural successor to 'I Am That'. This important book from Self-Realized Master, Shri Ramakant, direct disciple of Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj, was first published, in English, in 2015. Watkins Books, London, describes it as a 'companion to I Am That', while others claim that its simple clarity actually unravels 'I Am That'. Ann Shaw, editor of 'Selfless Self', explained: 'When Nisargadatta Maharaj left his body in 1981, he left behind him a massive hole which seemed impossible to fill. But now, no longer! Ramakant Maharaj, is an authentic, Realized Master who conveys the highest spontaneous and direct knowledge with utter simplicity. This is unprecedented'. The Master's teachings are unadulterated, powerful and transformative, as many seekers continue to find out first-hand, either from reading the book and/or visiting him in person. Many who have given feedback say that this book has finally brought them to completion. It has taken them Home. Others have expressed their conviction that they will never need to read another book again. 'Selfless Self' has become my bible', said one reader, and you only need one bible. This is what I have been waiting for. This is IT!'. Jean-Claude Dhainaut, the translator of 'Le Soi Sans Rien', offers an excellent example of the impact the book had on him. He can only use one word to describe his experience, and that word is 'miraculous'. He explains: 'Last year, almost as soon as I had started reading 'Selfless Self', I immediately felt compelled to write down some lines. The power and clarity coming through the Master's words was so immense that I began translating into French, what I thought were the most revolutionary passages. I wrote down everything by hand. 'I had never translated a book before, and certainly not one that was 500 pages in length! It was as if 'Selfless Self' was propelling me forward. The book was completed within eight months. Shri Ramakant describes 'Selfless Self' as a miracle. Well, 'Le Soi Sans Rien' is also truly nothing but a miracle'. 'A Self-Realized Master is essential', says the Master. 'So many people teaching today with only book knowledge, (what he terms 'dry' or 'literal' knowledge), some body experiences, but no knowledge in a 'Real' sense, no Self-Knowledge! How can they guide? This is like the blind leading the blind'. He often says, 'Everyone should be enlightened because when you see through the illusory world, your suffering will come to an end'. His sincere wish is for these teachings to spread across the globe. The publication of 'Le Soi Sans Rien', as well as other Translations in progress, are bringing the Master's wish closer to fruition. 'Le Soi Sans Rien: Entretiens avec Shri Ramakant Maharaj' is available both from Amazon and large bookshops. (more...)
