One of the advantages of having an Online Book Seller business is that you get exposed to books otherwise unknown (and get first pick of the interesting ones :-)). I was undertaking a renewed interest in Zen, Buddism, etc. and focusing on ACIM (A Course in Miracles), when this book came in... immediately upon reading some of it I began margin writing and underlining and reading until every bit was consumed. Basically, the same nonduality as ACIM promoted, but with such simplicity and consistency... The Self alone is Real. All else is unreal.
Wow. Of course, anything more is redundant. However, I have found this text a very useful focusing tool to daily bring myself back to this point and remember. Beyond being one of the books constantly kept by my bed and taken when there might be a waiting period (like for a doctors appointment), it has caused me to explore other books by/about Ramana and led to the recent purchase of Nag...uh...someindiannameguruguy (not sure of spelling), another very similar Guru but who was a householder and business owner which is closer to my Life. Neem Karoli Baba is also a Great Guru who is very inspirational, but, never seems to have actually tried to promote or write books on his teaching. Sometimes I wonder how people can revere Jesus Christ and Buddha when all we have is hearsay often written hundreds of years after they lived... then there are these who have lived during our age and have living accounts of witnessed miracles and evidence... yet they are little known or thought of. Go figure.

This is simply one of the very best books regarding the Self and Non-Duality. The pure distillation of Ramana's teaching and a marvelous gift to Humanity. Enjoy!!!

Sri Ramana Maharshi is not a theoretician like Shankara or Ramanuja. He is not even a practical philosopher like Jesus or Sri Ramakrishna. He abstains from platitudes and recommendations for worldly conduct almost altogether. Unlike Gandhi, Ramakrishna, Vivekananda and others, he is very reluctant to discuss matters as mundane as diet, sexuality or material life in detail even though he recognizes the value of satya, bramachraya, ahimsa and aparigraha. For Ramana, these virtues spring from the realization of the Self, not the other way around. Although he is a clever interlocutor, he has no genuine interest in debate. This is simply a distraction from the supreme goal. He is willing to explain the practical aspects of yoga to neophytes, but ultimately even these discussions return to his favorite question: "Who am I?" Atma Vichara is the foundation of his approach to spirituality; it is the Vedantist's ultimate weapon in the battle against false ego.

The ultimate goal is to realize the Atman, the Self that is identical with all reality. Without a recognition of the basic nonduality underlying maya one cannot hope to achieve liberation in this life. If Vedanta were adopted by more people, or could be understood intuitively or intellectually by them, there is no doubt most, if not all, of the social ills in the world would quickly disappear. Ramana's message is simple but unfathomably profound for those who wish to experience it. Those who wish to remain armchair yogis should not bother reading this book. Self-inquiry is a simple practice that quickly yields advancement along the yogic path. It should not be undertaken by those who fear commitment.

This book is kind of hard to comprehend Maharshis ideas and feelings about his philosophy and teachings of life and devotions that he puts forth in this book.

A wonderful collection of Sri Ramana's answers to questions about Enlightenment, how to get it, what it is, and more. It's easy to read. So wonderful to have his direct teachings, almost like Darshan.
