This is the second of three volumes that comprise lengthy first-person accounts by devotees whose lives were transformed by Ramana Maharshi. The narratives span the entire fifty-four-year era of Bhagavan’s teaching career.
Some of these accounts have only appeared previously in Indian language publications, some have never been published anywhere before, and some have been taken from books and journals that are hard to find outside India. Taken together these books reveal what it was like to live with and be moulded by one of the greatest spiritual teachers that India has ever produced.
This is the second edition of the book. Translations have been revised, photos have been added, and there is an extra chapter about Swami Ramanagiri (a Swedish sadhu) that did not appear in the first edition.
The author, David Godman is the world’s foremost researcher and scholar of Sri Ramana Maharshi’s life and teachings. He has written or edited many books about Sri Ramana, Sri Ramana’s direct disciples, and related topics. He has spent most of his life in Tiruvanammalai where Sri Ramana’s ashram is located.
