The classic collection of essential wisdom from the most important Indian Saint and Sage of modern times.
Sri Ramana Maharshi is widely thought of as one of the most outstanding Indian spiritual leaders of recent times. Having attained enlightenment at the age of 16, he was drawn to the holy mountain of Arunachala in southern India, and remained there for the rest of his life. Attracted by his stillness, quietness and teachings, thousands sought his guidance on issues ranging from the nature of God to daily life.
This book brings together many of the conversations Maharshi had with his followers in an intimate portrait of his beliefs and teachings. Through these conversations, readers will discover Maharshi's simple discipline of self-enquiry: knowing oneself and looking inwards as the road to true understanding and enlightenment.
This updated edition will appeal to anyone looking for peace, self-awareness, and guidance on how to embrace the self for well being and calm.
“One of the last of India's spiritual supermen”
“The heritage of India is enriched with numberless saints and yogis. Ramana Maharshi represents that tradition, and his spiritual greatness is guiding millions of people.”
The Dalai Lama
“An exposition of the Maharshi's teaching which is at once intimate and objective.”
