A good resource to have at a reasonable price imho.
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.
