This book provides a wonderful collection of Ramana Maharshi's teachings in poetical form, written by Muruganar, one of his closest disciples, and read by Ramana himself before publishing.
The translation into English is also perfect. I'd advise this book for everyone interested in the philosophy and metaphysics of Advaita Vedanta or nonduality. Apart from the clear sayings of Ramana, without any technical terms, it is wonderful to be reminded throughout the book what one really is and how it is possible to experience THAT Parasat, Brahman, Siva, the Absolute or how you may call it again consciously.
Maybe this book along with others on this matter will give one the inspiration to try to find out, where or what the BLISS is, which most of us are not yet aware of. Ramana provides the perfect method for it - try it, and you will find out what "real happiness" is! Something beautiful in an ugly world.
Perhaps the most eloquent exposition of Ramana's teachings, the Garland is much more than a book. It is a relic of the deepest realization of the true nature of the Self. I highly recommend this book for all seekers. It is in my top five of all time spiritual classics. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.

Guru Vachaka Kovai
A collection of articles discussing the philosophy and practice of the spiritual teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana, written by Michael James and forming an extension of his main website, www. The following is an extract from my introduction to this e-book : Guru Vachaka Kovai is the most profound, comprehensive and reliable collection of the sayings of Sri Ramana, recorded in Tamil verses composed by Sri Muruganar, with an additional 42 verses composed by Sri Ramana. In this title, the word guru denotes Sri Ramana, who is a human manifestation of the one eternal guru — the non-dual absolute reality, which we usually call 'God' and which always exists and shines within each one of us as our own essential self, our fundamental self-conscious being, 'I am' —, the word vachaka means 'saying', and the word kovai is a verbal noun that means 'threading', 'stringing', 'filing' or 'arranging', and that by extension denotes a 'series', 'arrangement' or 'composition', and is therefore also used to denote either a string of ornamental beads or a kind of love-poem. Sri Muruganar first came to Bhagavan Sri Ramana in September , and the next year he settled permanently in Tiruvannamalai.

In the late s Muruganar, an accomplished Tamil poet who had lived with Bhagavan for several years, began to collect the verbal teachings of his Guru, Ramana Maharshi. He recorded them in four-line Tamil verses. No questions were recorded, just the answers and statements on a wide variety of spiritual topics. By the late s, Muruganar had completed over of these verses, virtually all of which recorded a direct teaching statement that Bhagavan had uttered. In a decision was made to publish these teachings in book form. Bhagavan then asked Sadhu Natanananda, a Tamil scholar and devotee, to arrange the verses by subjects since there was no particular order or sequence in the material that Muruganar had amassed. After Natanananda had done this work and shown it to Bhagavan, Bhagavan himself thoroughly edited the work, modifying the sequences and adding many revisions.
