This is not a book one would want to scan through lightly, but rather is for the serious student who is willing to take the time to read perhaps only a verse or two and then cogitate on it before proceeding forward. If one is patient, much is then revealed, and questions we did not yet even know we had are answered.
This is truly a generous work of the Heart, and we are privileged to have it at our disposal.
I also highly recommend the version by Sadhu Om.
There is much talk here on Sat-Chit-Ananda. This is who we are. The commentary by Sadhu Om is an ongoing explanation of what Ramana Maharshi is saying so you get two enlightened voices in one book!
Here we have pure optimism. They say you and I are pure happiness but we've forgotten. Well I've forgotten anyhow!
I find little hope in the various schools of Buddhism with their fixation on nihilism or bigging up materialism because they claim to meet in the middle. There is little immortality in meeting science halfway. Science is also Sat-Chit-Ananda.
What Ramana Maharshi is saying is similar to what Jesus said in the gospel of Thomas.
