Editorial Reviews

Review

This is not a book to be lightly read and laid aside:it is bound to be an unfailing guide to increasing number of pilgrims to the Light Everlasting. Despite the fact that the great Sage of Arunachala taught for the most part through silence,he did instruct through speech also,and that too,lucidly,without baffling and beclouding the minds of his listeners.One would wish that every word that he uttered had been preserved for posterity.But we have to be thankful for what little of utterances has been put on record.Sri Ramana's central teaching is:Self-inquiry.Instead of wanting to know this and that,seek to know the Self.Ask 'Who am I?'instead of asking about a hundred other things. Self-inquiry ought to be the easiest of all tasks.But it seems to be the most difficult because we have become strangers to our Self.This is the ultimate Truth.This is one's eternal,natural,inherent state.Sri Ramana's teachings as found in the "Talks" will bring hope to everyone.No one need think that he is beyond the pale of redemption. --Dr.T.M.P.Mahadevan/Professor of Philosphy/Madras University.

"The words of this Sage still flame out in memory like beacon lights.'I pluck golden fruit from rare meetings with wise men.'wrote trans-atlantic Emerson in his diary,and it is certain that I plucked whole basketfuls during my talks with this man.Our best philosophers of Europe could not hold a candle to him..." --Paul Brunton/Author of Best Sellers like In Search of Secret India/Egypt etc.,

26 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Luc Andre Mandeville on November 21, 2005
Format: Paperback
In truth, if I was to choose the proverbial only book to bring to a desert island, this would be it! A lifetime of strong and profund insights from one who was considered a Jivanmukti (liberated while living) in India. In the form of dialogs with Western visitors and Hindus, about liberation (moksha). At the contact of his words, a genuine ring of truth will enlighten you from the very depths of your soul! Gently powerful and endowed with transformative power! If you are not familiar with Sri Ramana Maharshi's prose, you should begin with another shorter anthology of extracts from his dialogs called: The Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi in his Own Words, by Arthur Osborne. Contrary to the present work, it is arranged thematically. Welcome to Sri Ramana's liberated teaching. This is the Indian hardcover edition, there is also an American softcover edition. Give a copy to a spiritual friend!

18 of 22 people found the following review helpful By L. Ron Gardner on December 21, 2012
Format: Paperback
As an esoteric eclectic, I have devoted the past four decades to both the study and practice of the foremost spiritual traditions--Theravada, Zen, and Tibetan Buddhism; Hindu Raja Yoga, Advaita Vedanta, and Kashmir Shaivism; Daism (the teachings of Adi Da); and Christian Hermeticism, and in this time I have never encountered a spiritual book better than Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi. If I could give it six stars, I would. The book is a collection of enlightening talks between Ramana and numerous individuals representing the entire spectrum of spiritual development. The talks, which took place between 1935 and 1939, include conversations with such notables as Paramahansa Yogananda and W.Y Evans-Wentz, author of The Tibetan Book of the Dead.

I am well aware of the progression of Advaita Vedanta gurus since Ramana, and I've read the books by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Ramesh Balsekar, Papaji, Jean Klein, Andrew Cohen, Gangaji, Adyashanti, and many of the others who have come after Ramana. As a spiritual teacher, when I'm asked to compare these "gurus" to Ramana, I usually become like Sparky Anderson, who managed the Big Red Machine in the 1970s. When Sparky was asked to compare other catchers to the Reds' catcher Johnny Bench, his reply was: "I don't want to embarrass anyone." Sometimes someone will insist that Sri Nisargadatta's I Am That is better than Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi. All I can do at that point is be like Jesus and "forgive them, for they know not what they say." Nisargadatta, unlike Ramana, did not awaken as the Heart and radiate Hridaya (or Cit) Shakti, and he didn't talk about Amrita Nadi, the radiant force-current between the Hridaya, or Heart-center (just to the right of the center chest, and distinct from the anahata, or heart, chakra).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book deals with a specific timeframe of his teachings. It is a rare work, and an excellent work.
I do recommend trying to get a hardback of this book, the quality of the paper in the softcover isn't very good. Either that or an electronic copy.
Anyways, it's hard to write a review of a book (really, two books) of this magnitude. It isn't introductory material, if you haven't read Maharshi's Gospel, Who Am I?, Be As you Are, those maybe better to read first. This books takes those to the next level. And it's huge. Google search it and read some excerpts from it, I implore you. Don't miss out!

Format: Paperback
For an earnest seeker this books is worth its weight in gold. This book along with Collected Works of Ramana Maharshi and Day by day with Bhagavan is sufficient to satisfy the needs of anyone seeking to understand Advita in the most practical sense. It would not be far fetched to say that this book grows with the reader providing insights based on the maturity of the reader.
