Review:

This is not a book to be lightly read and laid aside:it is bound to be an unfailing guide to increasing number of pilgrims to the Light Everlasting. Despite the fact that the great Sage of Arunachala taught for the most part through silence,he did instruct through speech also,and that too,lucidly,without baffling and beclouding the minds of his listeners.One would wish that every word that he uttered had been preserved for posterity.But we have to be thankful for what little of utterances has been put on record.Sri Ramana's central teaching is:Self-inquiry.Instead of wanting to know this and that,seek to know the Self.Ask 'Who am I?'instead of asking about a hundred other things. Self-inquiry ought to be the easiest of all tasks.But it seems to be the most difficult because we have become strangers to our Self.This is the ultimate Truth.This is one's eternal,natural,inherent state.Sri Ramana's teachings as found in the "Talks" will bring hope to everyone.No one need think that he is beyond the pale of redemption. --Dr.T.M.P.Mahadevan/Professor of Philosphy/Madras University.

"The words of this Sage still flame out in memory like beacon lights.'I pluck golden fruit from rare meetings with wise men.'wrote trans-atlantic Emerson in his diary,and it is certain that I plucked whole basketfuls during my talks with this man.Our best philosophers of Europe could not hold a candle to him..." --Paul Brunton/Author of Best Sellers like In Search of Secret India/Egypt etc.,
