About the Author

Ramana Maharshi (1879–1950) was one of the greatest spiritual teachers of modern-day India. At the age of seventeen he attained a profound experience of the true Self. After some years of silent seclusion he finally began to reply to the questions put to him by spiritual seekers all over the world. Though he wrote little, his many conversations and verbal teachings were recorded by followers.

This book is by far the best introductory book on Sri Ramana's teachings. The contents are in Question and Answer format. After reading this book, most readers would want a practical book which puts Sri Ramana's teachings together in a logical and practical format and also would want to start practicing self-enquiry. For them I recommend the book 'Path of Sri Ramana, Part I' by Sri Sadhu Om. (Sri Sadhu Om is a direct disciple of Sri Ramana and also the closest associate of Sri Ramana's foremost disciple, Sri Muruganar). 'Path of Sri Ramana, part one' is by far the best practical book on Ramana's teachings. It walks you through the logic behind self-enquiry step-by-step and then, in the final chapter, describes the technique of self-enquiry. You should be able to start practicing after reading this book.

To those who want to read the original works of Sri Ramana with excellent commentary, I recommend the following books:

1. Upadesa Undiyar of Bhagavan Sri Ramana: "The Song of Siva". By Sri Sadhu Om and Michael James. Second edition, published 2004 by Sri Ramana Kshetra - Kanvashrama Trust. This book contains the thirty verses which are the essence of Sri Ramana's teachings. The book contains original Tamil verses, word for word English translation, followed by a running translation of the entire verse. All verses also have excellent explanatory notes.

2. Sri Arunachala Stuti Panchakam: Commentary by Sri Sadhu Om. 2007, Published by Kanvashrama Trust, Tiruvannamalai - 606 603: This book contains the five songs sung by Sri Ramana in praise of Sri Arunachala (the name given to God in Thiruvannamalai). The book has the original Tamil verses, word for word English translation, followed by a running translation. Some verses also have explanatory notes by Sri Sadhu Om.

The book is nicely organized into questions and answers. This book is a very concise resource for those interested in the advaita-vedanta philosophy of Ramana. Readers who are accustomed to Ramana's previous books might find this a very exciting addition to their collection, primarily beacuse of the crisp nature Ramana's answers. For the beginner, it might take a little time to get used to the Q and A format. But this can be overcome by brooding over the question for a while before reading Ramana's reply. I would recommend this book to any person interested in the philosophy of existence.

As good practical view of his method of enlightenment. Much of the book is in Q&A format.
Talks about the role of Ego as hindrance. The key seems to be to stop the mind thinking.

This book gives a great introduction to the wonderful guru, Sri Ramana Maharshi. "Who am I?" Ask yourself that question and go as deeply as you can with the answers until you find the true self. That's just for starters.

This book will help the reader find clarity of mind.

Sri Ramana sums up the principal things which the Spirit of India has accumulated during thousands of years in contemplation of yhr Inner Self. The individual life and work of the Maharshi exemplifies the innermost striving of the Indian people to find the liberating original Source.

A man of amazing insight into our essence. He with seeming effortlessness explains who we are and who we are not directly and with metaphor. I know that I will be reading this book from cover to cover, a day at a time, for more than one cycle. I have a feeling that each new reading will open something new, or maybe soften something old that is not really working for me.

Yes ... You will enjoy this. The best of this Mystics works in one place. Nothing too lengthy and the broad spectrum of topics covers the majority of human experiences. I return to this again and again.

While reading other works of Ramana, such as Talks, this is the best I have read as a succinct overview of his Teaching, and of Advaita (NonDuality). Each segment is an introduction to one vital aspect of the over-all Teaching, and each segment brief enough to be read in a matter of minutes. Reading Ramana is like sitting in the Presence of True Holiness: the spirit through the writings, that of Ramana and others like him, enhacing the wisdom and impressing it mysteriously upon the Heart: or as Ramana would say, the Guru pushing from without, the Guru pulling from within. OM Shanti
