"Who Am I?"



Offered and Blessed on Nisargadatta Maharaj's

125th Jayanthi (Birthday) Anniversary Celebrations

Foreword- Shri Ramakant Maharaj

"Now is the time for the world to hear this Knowledge! I want you, Ann, to write another book, this time with the title, WHO AM I? Keep it simple and straightforward without any references and confusing Indian terms. It is my wish that this simple, powerful knowledge reach many more seekers, far and wide.

I want you to write this book in a popular style, for westerners, in particular. You know the culture. You know better. Use modern language with references to today’s fast lifestyle, a society consumed by the internet and mobile phone culture! Frame the Knowledge in a contemporary way, so that the ordinary person, will be able to understand it! Make it light and fun!

Now is the time for the world to hear this Knowledge. Now is the time! This Knowledge is not the property of this “Sampradaya” (Traditional Lineage). It is “Universal Knowledge”! Make WHO AM I? simple and attractive, so that it becomes popular. This Knowledge is for everyone. We have to help others come out of suffering. We have to put an end to their suffering! It is our duty to show them how to wake up from the dream, and be free!

While we must never force this Knowledge on anyone, at the very least, we can try to make people aware! By presenting them with an alternative viewpoint, or a different way of perceiving themselves and the world, we can help bring them out of the illusion, and free them from suffering! All we can do is plant the seed, and then let the rest happen spontaneously. Whether they accept it or not, that’s up to them. We cannot force them! So, go ahead! Go ahead!"

Who Am I? offers answers to anyone searching for a greater understanding of who we are and why we are here. And not only that, the uplifting, vibrational wisdom it contains, enables a true experience of the Self. Who Am I? is a refreshing read as it crosses all barriers. Not limited by any belief system, philosophy, religion, spirituality, or genre, it speaks to us all.

This book is not just another self-help book offering guidance, advice, or quick-fix tips for living. Who Am I? is alive with presence, purity, energy, truth and light. This beautiful, self-transforming gift has the power to awaken readers to feel the magic in their everyday existence, and realize that life is much more than it appears to be.

Who Am I? is also a love story depicting the lover in search of the Beloved, taking us on an illuminating and impassioned journey of Self-discovery. The search ends when Truth and Love shine from within and light the way back home to the Self, where in quietude, the Ultimate Reality that we are, that we have always been, and will always be, is revealed.

If readers absorb the knowledge and follow the suggested practices, slowly but surely, they will be liberated from who they once thought they were. And then, finally, with conviction, they will realize their true nature which is complete, immortal, infinite Presence and part of the one Reality we all share.

Who Am I? is written in a simple, light, and humorous style. While the content addresses some heavyweight, existential questions, it is intermingled with references to contemporary lifestyle and celebrities, to produce an easy-to-read, captivating book for all ages.

Timeless Years


Shri Ramakant Maharaj

2012 - 2022


Foreword- Anvita Sawant

"It is my immense pleasure to say a few words about the new book Timeless Years with Shri Ramakant Maharaj.

Both Charles and Ann are blessed disciples who had the opportunity to spend quality time with Maharaj. Their dedication and devotion to Shri Maharaj has been simply exemplary. Maharaj had a lot of respect for the profound work both Charles and Ann put in to spread the ultimate truth to the broader society through the release of his book Selfless Self.

In 2018, when Ann brought the Bible form of Selfless Self, he was very delighted. He also requested Ann to “proofread” Ultimate Truth, such was his confidence in Ann's understanding of his teachings.

This book is straight from the heart and shows the love and dedication of Ann for Shri Maharaj. Maharaj used to say that the Sadguru graces his disciples to become like him. That grace is surely conferred on Ann."

Timeless Years With Shri Ramakant Maharaj 2012 - 2022 is the story of a couple who travel to India to meet their Guru, Shri Ramakant Maharaj, a rare Self-Realized Master, (Jnani). Unbeknown to them, they would become the propagators of his Teachings. Shri Ramakant Maharaj spent almost twenty years with the world-famous Guru, Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

Sitting in the presence of an authentic Guru is like bathing in sacred sunshine. The sun’s rays of truth and love illuminate the disciple. Listening to the transcendental knowledge and experiencing the transmission of the Guru’s shining, loving presence, purifies the disciple’s heart. With each bow, the ego is stripped back, heralding a timeless bond between them.

This book outlines the process of Self-Realization, under the guidance of Shri Ramakant Maharaj, (including extracts from the couple's diaries and journals), as well as many of Shri Ramakant's discourses. This fascinating, down-to-earth account, peppered with humour, offers a unique insight into the paradoxical nature of the Guru-disciple relationship, which is at once, both personal and impersonal.
