Be as You are : The Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi Paperback

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Ramana Maharshi was one of the most significant spiritual teachers to emerge from India during the first half of the century, and remains widely admired.

This recent collection of conversations between him and the many seekers who came to his ashram for guidance contains the essence of his teaching.

His concern throughout his long life of imparting his experience to others was to convince his listeners that self-realisation - or enlightenment - is not an alien or mysterious state, but the natural condition of man.

This state can be easily discovered by undertaking the self-investigation clearly described in these talks.

The lucid instructions to each section provide further illumination of this greater seer's message.

Review by

Maharishi gives the clearest indication of who we are.He is at pains to lead us to the understanding that the Self(Atman) IS what we already are.There is nothing to search for. Who will search for what.Are there Two of you?One the Seeker and the other the Sought?No-The Seeker is the sought.FULL STOP.
