During the first years of writing these essays people volunteered to translate them into English. These were either no professional translators or no native speakers so the translation may need editing at times. Still I am thankful to all those who helped so that we can present some of the essays in English.
A word about the essays in general
They are spiritual inspiration based on Advaita Vedanta. Yet they do not and cannot follow the teaching methodology. So they can support your study of Advaita Vedanta, but in order to study Vedanta, you will need a living teacher who personally guides you along the teaching methodology.
The essays are timeless. They can be read again and again and each time you can discover another gem. It is best to read the essays in the order they have been written.
Some of the German essays have been revised, however, the translation may be of the older version and not revised.
These essays are addressed to westerners. Indians, not familiar with western thinking may have difficulty recognizing traditional Advaita Vedanta behind the texts. But rest assured that the tradition is minutely followed in the actual teaching given in the classes.
So far, I do not offer any teaching in English. That’s why there is no intent to translate this website as a whole.
But if you are curious about the untranslated contents of this site, try https://translate.google.com.
It does not produce perfect translations but has much improved in the last years, and I would recommend it.
