Lakshmana Sarma had the good fortune of spending twenty years in the immediate proximity of Sri Maharshi.

The popularity of the Author and the Book is well illustrated by the fact that it has gone into ten reprints.

Format: Paperback
The scribe, if you will, the Author Who has done a beyond excellent job of completely explaining Ramana's Teaching along with it's parallels in Advaita. Non Sectarian, and from a profound view of understanding; that Ramana him self went over and gave final approval. Very nice insight of Ramana's Depth.
A good resource to have at a reasonable price imho.

This book was a labor of love of a devotee of Ramana who felt no need to even mention his own name and simply called himself "Who" because his love of truth and devotion to it was so pure. He continuously brought his writings to Ramana for approval and Ramana supported his efforts, which must have meant that Ramana saw the value in this book coming to be as it has. Very practical and useful pointers to deepen in Self-inquiry.

Format: Paperback
Maha Yoga is an excellent little intro to Ramana's teachings and to advaita. There are loads of little spiritual books out there. This one is different. Ramana Maharshi checked this actual book and suggested changes here and there and it shows. The English is a bit dated and the writing style is somewhat stiff, but what is inside will blow the seeker to bits, as is supposed to happen (I think).

Maha Yoga by "Who" (K. Lakshmana Sarma) is a very educative book on Advaita (based on the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi) and in realizing who we really are. If you do not read this book you may be the loser unless of course you are already a Sage. I would recommend that you also read another book by the same author entitled Sri Ramanaparavidyopanishad --- The Supreme Science as taught by Sri Ramana. Both these books erase a lot of preconceived notions about the reality of ego/soul/body/world.

As per Bhagavan Ramana in this book, our true Self being already the Supreme Self or Sat-Chit-Anandam-Nityam-Purnam, we on account of ignorance (due to avidya maya) constantly misidentify our Supreme Self with the perishable body and its illusory occupant, the ghostly "ego" which we identify with a name. We then make superfluous efforts or sadhanas to realize the Supreme Self which we already are right now. Because of our misidentification with the body and its illusory occupant we call "I" our natural abidance as Sat-Chit-Anandam-Nityam-Purnam is hidden. So it is not a case of gaining Reality at some time in the future as much as losing our imagination and belief as this superimposed identity as a person inhabiting the body (which we suppose to be our real Self) as quickly as we can.

The author repeatedly reminds the reader that mere theoretical knowledge of advaita is as good as useless. Only actually realizing that we are indeed only pure Self awareness or Sat-Chit-Ananda by erasing the ghostly ego or personal feeling of individuality like Bhagavan Ramana did is what really counts. Unless that happens one should diligently pursue the quest of the Self through Self enquiry. Only by repeated practice of tracing the ego or the primal "I thought" back to its source or the Self, will result in the eradication or extinction of the vasanas that foster samsara and rebirth.
