The Collected Works of Ramana Maharshi (New)
by Maharshi, Ramana
Publisher: Sophia Perennis
Book ID: 9781597310048, 1597310042
Please inquire for availability
This is the definitive authorized (tenth, revised) edition of the works of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, containing almost everything written by him, both his inspired compositions and a collection of translations from ancient Advaitic texts, which together represent the essence of his teachings. They fall into two categories: those exemplifying the path of surrender through love and devotion to the Divine, and those more directly related to jnana, the path of knowledge. The first group includes the Five Hymns to Sri Arunachala, of which the first poem, 'The Marital Garland of Letters', has been described as among the most profound and moving poems in any language. The second group centers upon Sri Ramana's practice of "self-inquiry", his method of asking 'Who Am I?' in the most absolute terms, and allowing the answer to arise from a Reality far deeper than the apparent identity of the person asking it.
Sri Ramana Maharshi, as the foremost jnanin of modern times, is the essence of the Advaita Vedanta, the quintessential expression of Hindu spirituality. Yet he in no way represents a path of Knowledge as opposed to that of Devotion; in his own words: 'Imperfect jnana and imperfect bhakti are different; perfect jnana and perfect bhakti are one and the same.' Sri Bhagavan has affirmed that seekers who study these works are certain to attain the Bliss of Liberation.

Allen, Lasara Firefox
Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd.
