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In the early 1950s Sadhu Natanananda wrote Sri Ramana Darsanam, a book that contained many previously unpublished stories about Bhagavan.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Also included are previously unpublished poems that give a rare glimpse into the inner experiences that came to Sadhu Natanananda as a result of Bhagavan's teachings and grace.

Testimonials
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.

I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
