My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A wonderful book about various writings from Ramana Maharishi, the silent sage from Thiruvannamalai. The silent saint has written some manuscripts like Ulladu Narpadhu and has translated works of others like Adi Shankaracharya into Tamil.

This book is a collection of manuscripts authored by Ramana Maharishi and his translations. It a very good book to read to understand that thoughts of this silent sage. His philosophy is one of introspection. Mindful meditation is what he suggests. Just observe what you are doing and do not react to situations. This is the message he gives repeatedly in each translation.

The translations of Atma Sakshatkara (an exposition of philosophy by Shiva to his son Shanmukha) and Devikalottara (an exposition of philosophy by Shiva to his consort Parvati) were the highlights for me. Completely blew my mind apart.

Read the book to understand the true philosophy of Hinduism.
