Upadesa Undiyar is a thirty-verse philosophical poem composed by Ramana Maharshi in 1927. The original was in Tamil, but Bhagavan later wrote other versions in Telugu, Sanskrit and Malayalam.

Michael James made a word-for-word translation of the Tamil text in the 1980s and added a long introduction and a commentary on each verse. This work
(Upadesa Undiyar of Bhagavan Sri Ramana) was published by Sri Ramana Kshetra but it has been out of print for many years.
Since it is not likely to be published again in the near future, I sought and
received Michaelís permission to post the whole work on this site.
