Sadhu Natanananda was a distinguished scholar and devotee who first met Bhagavan in Skandashram. His collection of dialogues with Bhagavan – Upadesa Manjari in Tamil and Spiritual Instructions in English – Has appeared in several editions of Bhagavan’s own Collected Works. Sadhu Natanananda also edited Vichara Sangraham (Self-Enquiry) in both the essay and the question-and answer formats. Bhagavan also gave him the job of arranging the verses of Guru Vachaka Kovai, Mariana’s Authoritative compendium of Bhagavan’s teachings.
In the early 1950s Sadhu Natanananda wrote Sri Ramana Darsanam, a book that contained many previously unpublished stories about Bhagavan. However, it is not merely a collection of anecdotes. Sadhu Natanananda uses these stories to make a penetrating analysis of Bhagavan’s life and teachings.
Also included are previously unpublished poems that give a rare glimpse into the inner experiences that came to Sadhu Natanananda as a result to Bhagavan’s teachings and grace.
