The words of this sage,Sri Ramana Maharshi still flame out in my memory like beacon lights."I pluck golden fruit from rare meetings with wise men" wrote Emerson in his diary,and it is certain that I plucked whole basketfuls during my talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi.Our best philosophers of Europe could not hold a candle to him.. --Paul Brunton This introduction by Paul Brunton should induce any seeker to understand Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sri Ramana Gita is one of the important works on the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi,composed by his premier devotee Vasishta Ganapati Muni. It records the instructins of the Maharshi on various themes of spiritual importance and mode of sadhana in answer to serious queries addressed to him by sincere devotees and aspirants.Most of the queries belong to the period 1916 and 1917. The questions taken up in Ramana gita are often intricate relating as they do to the deepest experiences in yoga and involve very subtle perception and analysis.Fortunately the commentary by the scholar,Kapli Sastriar,the illustrious disciple of Vasishta Ganapati Muni throws aflood of light on all abstruse points and is of great help for the proper understanding of the high philosophical concepts and deep spiritual import embodied in the teaching of the maharshi. Althouh each of the chapters of Ramana Gita deals with a differrent subject,special mention must be made about Chapter V on Hridaya Vidya,which contains Sri Bhagavan's discourse given on His own accord and not in answe to any question from anyone. Sri Sankaranarayanan,an ardent devotee has translated this volume into English.
