This extended interview chronicles the life and teachings of Ramana Maharshi. I recommend it to anyone who wants to know the basics of who he was and what he taught.
These are filmed talks or dialogues on which I attempt to explain Bhagavan’s teachings on self-enquiry.
Guru Vachaka Kovai is the most authoritative collection of Ramana Maharshi’s spoken teachings. Compiled by Muruganar and edited and corrected by Bhagavan himself, it covers the whole spectrum of Sri Ramana’s teachings. This excerpt contains the first 57 verses of the work, taken from the edition made by T. V. Venkatasubramanian, Robert Butler and David Godman.
Upadesa Tiruvahaval is one of the poems of Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai. In addition to lines that praise Bhagavan and express gratitude to him, Muruganar also includes explanations of the first two benedictory verses of Ulladu Narpadu.
In this excerpt from Sri Ramana Darsanam Sadhu Natanananda describes events that took place in Bhagavan’s presence and then goes on to explain their inner significance.
