Bibliography of Ramana
Sri Ramana Maharshi was born in 1879. To the 17 years reaches illumination through a notable experiences as if he had witnessed the death of the physical body, while he stayed in full conscience. After this transformation, he left home and he felt strongly attracted by the sacred mountain of Arunachala. For there he went and never left it. In the ashram that was formed around himself, he taught Advaita Vedanta’s (non-duality) by the purest and simple discipline of Self-inquiry.
Written by Artur Osborne, devotee of Sri Ramana Maharshi
The knowledge of Sri Ramana Maharshi is put here with the intention of helping those souls that feel the difficulty in meditation through own experience, and too, those souls who look effective forms to eliminate the thought, and all the disturbances of the ego mind.
Note: The method of Sri Ramana Maharshi is the method of Self-Inquiry and it can help Kriyayoguis on Laya Yoga, that means – the disappearance of the mind.
For us to understand Sri Ramana Maharshi and their teachings we advised to read the following books. They were not written by him but by devotees and people that stayed very closed to Sri Ramana (among these, the more acquaintance was Paul Brunton).
Who Am I? (NÃN YÃR?)
As all living beings desire to be happy always, without misery, as in the case of everyone there is observed supreme love for one’s self, and as happiness alone is the cause for love, in order to gain that happiness which is one’s nature and which is experienced in the state of deep sleep where there is no mind, one should know one’s self. For that, the path of knowledge, the inquiry of the form “Who am I?”, is the principal means. Extracted of pag.19 of the book, Ramana Maharshi - Spiritual Teachings
