In response to the earnest desire of a large number of devotees of Bhagavan Sri Ramana, the answers to some of the questions put to His from time to time are printed in a book-form under the title MAHARSHI'S GOSPEL for the benefit of the world at large.
These questions occur to ever so many of us, and we struggle within ourselves to solve them. The answers given by Maharshi are the quintessence of Divine Wisdom, based as they are on His direct knowledge and experience. His answers are of inestimable value to the earnest seeker of Truth.
The profound truth of Advaita that the one and only Reality is the Self absolute or Brahman, has nowhere been more lucidly expounded than in these pages. Because, on the one hand, it is on the basis of the highest experience that is His, that Bhagavan Sri Ramana speaks, and on the other, it is from the viewpoint of the common understanding of the layman that the aspirant seeks to know the Truth.
Truth is the same for one and all, and Sri Bhagavan directs the earnest aspirant to investigate and critically examine his own intimate experience and to seek for himself the core of his being, the Heart, which is eternally identical with the One Ultimate Reality, of which every else seen or known is merely a phenomenal manifestation.
Every word that comes from the lips of the Sage is of the essence of Upanishadic wisdom, of which He is Himself the Supreme Embodiment.
The devout reader will find in these pages practical advice, and will gain the conviction that his essential nature is Divine;
