Description

Publisher's Note

Sri Ramana Darsanam was originally published by Sadhu Natanananda himself in Tamil in 1957. Since 1973 this work has been a Sri Ramananasramam publication.

David Godman, the compiler of Be As You Are, has edited and arranged the text for this first ever English edition. The translation itself was done by Dr. Venkatasubramanian.

We are also including two long poems by Sadhu Natanananda - Atma gita and tiruvarut Selvam - that have never been published before, even in Tamil. They were discovered in the ashram archives a few years ago.

We are happy to publish this collection of Sadhu Natanananda's writings and we hope that spiritual aspirants will find this work useful in their pursuit of truth.

Back of the Book

Sadhu Natanananda was a distinguished scholar and devotee who first met Bhagavan in Skandashra. His collection of dialogues with Bhagavan - Upadesa Manjari in Tamil and Spiritual Instructions in English - has appeared in several editions of Bhagavan's own Collected Works. Sadhu Natanananda also edited Vichara Sangraham (Self-Enquiry) in both the essay and the question-and-answer formats. Bhagavan also gave him the job of arranging the verses of Guru Vachaka Kovai, Muruganar's authoritative compendium of Bhagavan's teachings.

In the early 1950s Sadhu Natanananda wrote Sri Ramana Darsanam, a book that contained many previously unpublished stories about Bhagavan. However, it is not merely a collection of anecdotes. Sadhu Natanananda uses these stories to make a penetrating analysis of Bhagavan's life and teachings.

Also included are previously unpublished poems that give a rare glimpse into the inner experiences that came to Sadhu Natanananda as a result of Bhagavan's teachings and grace.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom

Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
