A beautiful collection of short penetrating quotes, selected from the Maharshi's teaching by editor Matthew Greenblatt. The text is set amongst 82 sepia-toned photographs of the Ramana Ashram, the sacred mountain Arunachala, Ramana's many visitors, and of course Ramana himself. The text gives a hint of the flavor of Ramana's teaching, and the photographs will touch all those who love this great Indian sage and saint.

The editor's introduction includes a brief biography, and the Forward by Douglas Harding is well worth reading.

Excerpts from the book:



All spiritual teachings are only meant to make us retrace our step to our Original Source. We need not acquire anything new, only give up false ideas and accretions. Instead of doing this, we try to grasp something strange and mysterious because we believe happiness lies elsewhere. This is the mistake.



The cause of misery is not in life without; it is within you as the ego. You impose limitations on yourself and then make a vain struggle to transcend them. Why attribute to the happenings in life the cause of misery, which really lies within you? What happiness can you get from anything extraneous to yourself? When you get it, how long will it last?
