A Sadhu's Reminiscences of Ramana Maharshi
By Sadhu Arunachala (A. W. Chadwick)

Major Chadwick was a direct disciple of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, so naturally, he has much to tell us not only of Bhagavan and his teachings, but also of the many things that happened in Bhagavan's presence. In this book Chadwick gives us only what has been, for the most part, unrecorded in the books of others. Thus, this text serves to supplement the previous publications, and to provide the reader with insights not already rendered in previous books. The pen picture of Sri Ramana is so vivid and complete that many disciples have testified to its being faithful in spirit and accurate in detail.

Further the highest Truths have been quite clearly stated, and many a reader will be drawn back into the Self while reading the text. You will enjoy reading this book.

Advaita Bodha Deepika
Translated by Swami Ramanananda Saraswathi

In this work, the author has attempted to explain how ignorance veils the true nature of the Self, which is non-dual, resulting in one’s belief that “the Self does not exist” and that “the Self does not shine forth.” When the mind gives rise to this illusion, it projects onto individuals and the world and presents them as being real. By hearing the Truth, contemplating the Truth and abiding as the Truth, through the use of Self-Inquiry, direct Knowledge is gained and puts an end to one’s false belief that the Self does not exist.

This book, one of the few esteemed by Sri Ramana Maharshi, was thoroughly translated and revised in his presence.

Annamalai Swami, His Final Talks
Compiled and edited by David Godman, Pocket Edition

Annamalai Swami came to Bhagavan in 1928 and spent the next ten years serving him, initially as his attendant, and subsequently as the supervisor of all the building projects that Sri Ramanasramam undertook during this period. Through his devotion and close association with Bhagavan, Annamalai Swami himself underwent enlightenment.

In the 1980’s people began to visit Annamalai Swami in order to get instructions on Bhagavan’s teachings. The visitors to his ashram were often surprised by the elegant clear way in which Annamalai Swami passed on the teachings that had been given to him by Sri Bhagavan. Though he had virtually no formal education, his deep experience of the subject matter enabled him to communicate it with rare authority.

This book, published by AHAM Publications in a small “pocket book” format, contains some of the instructions given to visitors during the last six months of his life. This is a book well worth the readers time.

Arunachala Holy Hill
By Skandananda (R. Henninger)

Sri Arunachala, which is referred to as “the Holy of Holies,” is beyond any doubt true, at least for the many who have experienced it. Sri Arunachala has attracted numerous sages, siddhas (perfected beings) and yogis, and has provided numerous caves serving as dwellings for these Yogis, and shelter to others living in huts around the base of this Holy Mountain. The extremely ancient soil on which Arunachala rests allows us to postulate that this Holy Mountain has been there through the various continental drifts, even from the time when the continents of MU, or Lemuria, and Atlantis took shape, before the development of the earth formation we know today.

The great power of attraction and diffusion, which comes from the very center of Sri Arunachala, has been affirmed by countless sages and saints who have come to the foot of the mountain. Sri Bhagavan Ramana is quoted as having called this mountain not only his guru, but as being the Self or God in physical form. The Self is beyond all concepts, all analysis; it is the very Source of all sources, it merely IS.... without name and form… truly a unique and silent riddle!

Bhagavan encouraged his devotees to follow the ancient tradition of walking around the mountain. The path, going around the Mountain, leads us gradually into its Silence or inner being and eventually enables us to attain mystical union with Arunachala. The book is itself intended to be used as a guide by all those wishing to circumambulate Arunachala (called, giri pradakshina) with a deeper insight into the spiritual meaning of the hill and of the temples and shrines that surround it.

At The Feet Of Bhagavan
By T. K. Sundaresa Iyer

Precious indeed are the records left by those to whom the Master has shown His Grace. Fortunately for us, sincere devotees have come forward to share their experiences with Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi, by putting them down in words. Posterity owes a deep debt to the blessed memory of these old devotees.

Here are the writings of Sri T. K. Sundaresa Iyer. He was not only a Bhakti (devotee) of the highest order, but also an erudite scholar though he did not possess any academic qualifications. Sri T. K. S., as he was addressed affectionately by all, acted as an interpreter to English speaking visitors in their conversations with Sri Bhagavan. He also replied to the correspondence received by the Ashram on spiritual matters, consulting Sri Bhagavan every time he had to reply to specific spiritual questions. Thus he acquired a full and comprehensive knowledge of Sri Bhagavan’s teachings. thus helping many seekers in clarifying the path of Ramana.

Sri T. K. S. was considered by many to be a Rishi (teacher) in appearance and in experience. His reminiscences of the Master portray the beauty, tenderness and compassion of Sri Bhagavan’s personality.

Be As You Are: The Teachings Of Sri Ramana Maharshi
Edited by David Godman

In this book edited by the former librarian of the Sri Ramanasramam library (the library of the Ashram of Sri Ramana Maharshi), the teachings of Sri Bhagavan have been presented in the form of a series of questions and answers in which the great sage outlines his views on various subjects. The chapters have been arranged so that his highest teachings come first. Each chapter is devoted to a different topic and each topic is prefaced by a few introductory or explanatory remarks. The questions and answers, which form the bulk of each chapter, have been taken from many sources and assembled in such a way that they give the appearance of being a continuous conversation. The sources of the quotations that make up the conversations are all listed at the end of the book.

This book is compiled in a manner that provides both easy reading and an in-depth grasp of Sri Ramana’s teachings. This is a great introductory book to the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi.

Bhagavan and Nayana
By S. Shankaranarayanan

This book provides an insight into the relationship of Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi and the disciple he referred to endearingly as Nayana, who was better known as Kavyakantha Ganapati Sastri, and who was famed as Vasistha Ganapati Muni.

Nayana was a mighty spiritual personality in his own right, and had a large following of illustrious disciples. It is a standing testimony to his spiritual sincerity and intellectual honesty that he recognized the uniqueness of Bhagavan’s teaching, accepted him as his Guru, and proclaimed him as the Maharshi to the whole world.

This text sheds insight into one of the most unique disciple-Guru relationships.

Bhagavan Ramana And Mother
By A. R. Natarajan

The need to know more about Bhagavan’s mother cannot be over stated. There is something unique about every aspect of Bhagavan’s life, and this is most true in relation to the bonds between him and his mother.

Though his mother attained mahasamadhi (conscious dropping of the body) in 1922, Ramana’s phenomenal and photographic memory enabled him to recall, even decades later, every little detail about her. These recollections have been fully recorded by several of Bhagavan’s students, so that posterity could know about and enjoy the tender and heart warming incidents.

This book is a homage to the special relationship between Bhagavan and his mother, Azhagammal. The author sought to recreate the holy atmosphere by making the narrative simple, and by containing a profusion of photographs in color and black and white.

Buddhism and Christianity in the Light of Hinduism
By Arthur Osborne

People often came to Arthur Osborne to ask for help in understanding, or rather in learning how to live Bhagavan’s teaching of Advaita (non-duality). Osborne felt that this teaching was so essentially simple, and yet he was aware that there seems to be a human tendency to complicate it with embellishments of theory and ritual. It was in response to these questions, about how to understand and live Bhagavan’s teachings, that Arthur wrote this book.

Osborne saw that we live in an “age of instant coffee and instant communication,” and that we also want instant enlightenment, almost irrespective of the path we take to get there. Mr. Osborne felt that a religion to which you are dedicated, or having some sort of a system of discipline, is still the best way of training the mind and the body until one is ready to let go and take the infinite step into eternity. He stresses that Bhagavan Ramana’s teaching was this step beyond religion and that it could be followed from any faith.

Arthur reminds us of the often misunderstood or forgotten heart-teachings of the world’s great religions, while he provides us with a beautifully clear explanation of Advaita. This book is written in a way that makes the reader feel that the experience of Advaita is within one’s grasp; and that is perhaps it’s most important message.

The Collected Works of Ramana Maharshi
By Author Osborne

This book gathers all the Maharshi’s original works—including “Self-Inquiry,” “Upadesa Saram” (Spiritual Instructions), “Who am I,” “Five Hymns to Arunachala,” the two sets of “Forty Verses,” together with all his miscellaneous works, most significantly being Atma Vidya (Self Knowledge)in one volume; as well as contains his explanations of some significant works of the sixth century sage, Adi Shankara.

Osborne’s presentation of Sri Ramana Maharshi’s teachings shows readers the purest form of Advaita Vedanta (non-duality) through the supremely simple discipline of Self-Inquiry. This discipline, as taught by Ramana Maharshi, embraces the path of action as well as that of knowledge, for it is to be used in the events of daily life as well as in silent meditation. In this way, the circumstances of life, instead of being obstacles to spiritual work, or the path to liberation, are made an instrument of spiritual work, when approached with love and devotion, and without self-interest.

These collected works, lovingly edited by Osborne, are from translations made at the Maharshi’s ashram. In this book, Osborne has preserved a wealth of transformational insight benefiting the lives of spiritual seekers for generations to come.

Everyone interested in the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, will find that Author Osborne’s works are a “must read.”

Conscious Immortality: Conversations with Sri Ramana Maharshi by Paul Brunton and Munagala Venkataramiah

Currently out of stock.

During his visits to Sri Ramanashram in the 1930’s, Paul Brunton and Munagala Venkataramiah made notes of visitors’ conversations with the Maharshi. Their intention was to collaborate in producing a book, but this did not materialize. The notes they made were later donated to the ashram. This resulted in a manuscript being rearranged thematically under various headings. A glossary of Sanskrit terms and footnotes have been added to explain references made to other texts, and teachers. The book does not purport to be a comprehensive exposition of the Maharshi’s teachings. Rather, it is a compendium of topics as remembered and recorded by the two devotees over a limited period. This book is enjoyable and insightful and makes for easy reading. Also, it is one of the books which are most highly and consistently recommended by the AHAM staff.

Crumbs From His Table
By Ramanananda Swarnagiri

This pamphlet contains conversations the author had with Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, as well as some of the most succinct messages on spiritual Truth which some of his friends had with the Master in the author’s presence.

The author states, “the uniqueness of Sri Bhagavan’s teaching consist in the fact of his insistence on the inquiry method, from the very beginning, instead of waiting till later for the purification of body, mind and intellect, because the use of the inquiry right away gives one that mental quiet.” The author states further, “Sri Bhagavan’s teaching can be practiced in addition to, and without detriment to, other practices, from the very beginning, with immense and incalculable advantage.”

V. Ganesan, the grand nephew of Sri Ramana Maharshi, has said this booklet is one of the very best accounts given of the deeper or subtler clues of Sri Bhagavan’s Teaching.

Day by Day with Bhagavan
From a Diary of A. Devaraja Mudaliar

This is the published diary, covering about two years from 1945 to 1947, of a devotee who lived at Sri Ramanasramam altogether for four years and had daily contact with Bhagavan. Reading about the small happenings at the ashram, as well as Bhagavan’s actions and words, we gain insight into the daily life of the ashram, and Bhagavan’s interaction with and influence on spiritual seekers. Sri Bhagavan’s love and compassion for all those living at the ashram, as well as his concern for daily visitors, and even his compassion for animals, shines through the pages.

Questions from visitors from diverse perspectives, and Bhagavan’s answers to them, flesh out the teaching of Bhagavan from many sides. A woman with seven children and many household duties asked what she should do, given that she was unable to meditate and did not feel that she was capable of Self-Inquiry. Bhagavan replied, that she should simply “be aware,” i.e., always be aware of “I-I” as she went about her day. To some questioners, Bhagavan responded in Silence – his most powerful teaching.

Five Hymns to Sri Arunachala
By Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

The Five Hymns to Arunachala are the earliest poems written by Sri Bhagavan, except for a few short verses. Bhagavan was about 35 years of age when he wrote these verses. He was still living in a cave on the holy hill. Some of his followers who were sadhus (renunciates) used to go into the town of daily to beg for food and one day they asked him to make a song for them to sing as they went. Initially he refused. Then one day he walked around the Hill, composing the first hymn, “The Marital Garland of Letters,” as he went.

The Marital Garland tells in glowing symbolism of the love and union between the human soul and God, and is among the most profound and moving poems in any language. It was written for the sake of devotees and expresses the attitude of the soul that still aspires.

The second, third and fourth poems were written at about the same time, and they also adopt the same attitude.

The fifth hymn is of a different nature to the first four. The great Sanskrit poet and devotee Ganapati Sastri, who was a follower of Bhagavan, begged him to write a poem in Sanskrit. Bhagavan replied, laughing, that he scarcely knew any Sanskrit, and no Sanskrit meters. Sastri, however, explained a meter to him and repeated his request. When he returned the same evening, this hymn had been written in perfect, flawless Sanskrit.

The spiritual significance of these hymns is best expressed by denoting the author, Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi, enough said.

Forever Is In The Now
By A. R. Natarajan

Ramana Maharshi left no doubt concerning the spiritual path we must follow. He gave us a distinct path, a straight path for Self-knowledge, that of Self-Inquiry. He illumined and made available the “Science of the “Heart.” While philosophic thought generally concerns itself with God, Self, the unknown, Sri Ramana Maharshi focuses attention entirely on the individual; or, more precisely said, the individual “I.”

Though we think we are familiar with the “I,” properly directed inquiry would reveal that the assumptions on which we proceed, and things we take for granted are not valid. For one would be examining, frontally, such questions as the nature of the mind, its relationship to the spiritual Heart, the true import of “I”, and whether it is confined to the body which we have taken it to be.

This selection of conversations between Sri Ramana Maharshi and various seekers, their arrangement, and the editorial notes have been made with regard to assisting the reader in directing his/her own experience. The purpose of this book is to serve as a practical guide to Self-knowledge. Such knowledge opens up for us our own natural, but hidden happiness.

Forty Verses On Reality
By Ramana Maharshi
Translation and commentary by S. S. Cohen

All the Masters of the Upanishads maintain that man is not the elements out of which his body is made, but the mind, or intelligent principle, or being, which uses the body.

This book comes with both synopsis and commentary. In the synopsis, the translator not only gives the gist of every verse, but also provides information intended to help the reader to locate a specific subject. The commentary provides a background and understanding that allows the reader to fully grasp the significance of what Sri Bhagavan has written.

In “The Guiding Presence of Sri Ramana,” Sri K.K. Nambiar, an ardent devotee of Sri Bhagavan, has given us an intimate glimpse into his life as guided by his Master. These reminiscences, which span over five decades of service and devotion to Sri Bhagavan and Sri Ramanasramam, have now been collected to form this book. The instances of Bhagavan’s grace abound through these pages.

It is always a pleasure and joy to read and ponder such reminiscences which make the presence of Sri Bhagavan vivid and enduring.

Guru Ramana
By S.S. Cohen

This Book contains some of S.S. Cohen’s reminiscences as well as the notes which he took down at various times during his 14 year residence in Sri Ramanasramam. Part I contains his first impressions of Ramana Maharshi, Ramana’s spiritual influence on his disciples, the conditions prevailing then in the Ashram, plus some autobiographical reflections and episodes.

Part II consists of extracts from his notebooks, where he occasionally jotted down the English translation of Bhagavan’s answers to questions almost as soon as they were given.

Part III is the diary which Cohen kept of the last two years of Ramana Maharshi’s life. It describes, in particular, the closing scenes of his life. This book provides the reader with a significant insight into Ramana Maharshi’s teaching from the point of view of one of his Western disciples.

The various books by S. S. Cohen are worth the readers consideration.

Guru Ramana Vachana Mala
By Who

This is an English rendering, by "Who" (Sri K. Lakshmana Sarma), of 350 Sanskrit verses, most of which were written by Sri Muruganar, the chief disciple of Sri Bhagavan, which embody the verbal Teaching of Sri Bhagavan. Included are explanatory notes. The three chapters, entitled “Discrimination,” “The Quest” and “Experience,” lead one from a discussion of the Ultimate Goal, through a description of the way to achieve the goal, and finally end by urging you to not just read about the goal, but rather to experience it.

Any text written by Who is worth the readers consideration.
