TALKS IS ALL PURE GOLD -Major Alan Chadwick During the four years from 1935 to 1939,Munagala Venkataramiah,a veteran devotee and author of this work,painstakingly recorded the conversations that took place in the old hall between Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi and his devotees. People from all faiths and every walk of life came to sit at Sri Bhagavan s feet:Whether ignorant or erudite,a simple peasant or royalty,they traveled from the far corners of the earth to place their doubts before him or just to sit in his divine presence.His infinite compassion and unique insight ensured that none left his ashram empty handed. Their questions covered every aspect of the spiritual search and every problem troubling the human mind:Maharshi s answers gently led the questioner to the correct solution,each question answered according to the questioner s own level of spritual development.All had their doubts dispelled,their hearts suffused with peace and their beings uplifted in his presence.This book is a truthful chronicle of such happenings. Reflecting the warmth,the humour and the deep spirtual atmosphere generated by the Master s presence,this work is a treasure-house for all who seek the highest truth.Sri Bhagavan s teaching,self-enquiry,is the core of this work.However,doctrinal questions from the various faiths,Hindu,Christian,Buddhist,Theosophical etc., have also been answered by the Maharshi.His explanations have revealed the common thread underlying all faiths and the absolute unity of the spiritual quest,irrespective of the diverse paths encountered on the journey to the Highest Goal. First printed in the year 1955 the book has been reprinted sixteen times. Somerset Maugham visited India and met Sri Ramana Maharshi.It is said that the famous important work of Somerset Maugham 'Razors's Edge' is based on the philosophy of Sri Ramana Maharshi.

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.,
