Berthold Madhukar Thompson, spiritual teacher and guide, acclaimed author, highly esteemed international citizen, founder of Neti Neti Press, spoke to spiritual seekers around the world, responding to the deepest spiritual quests and questions of our time. He first began to write about his experiences on the spiritual path in 1997. During the next four years he created 13 books (including postcard cartoon books). He offered his wisdom based on his own experiences and on the non-dual teachings of his preceptors Osho, Poonja (Papaji), Sri Ramana Maharshi, Ramesh Balsekar and D. B. Gangolli. Madhukar assisted seekers to end all outward searching and discover and experience directly within their own hearts, the nameless and formless Truth of who they truly are! His spiritual search on earth ended on May 24, 2011, reposing his soul to the hands of his beloved mother INDIA.
