The Ramana Gita is perhaps the most important part of the heritage bequeathed by the Sage of Arunachala The text consists of three hundred verses arranged in eighteen chapters. What we have now is the first English commentary and a fresh translation of Ramana Gita.
The work does not deal only with the philosophical content of the teaching. There is much of practical import; the discipline to be adopted to realise the truth for oneself. Sri. Natarajan provides both in introduction and his lucid commentary, significant background material for gainful appreciation of the discussions. The presentation should appeal to every one who is attracted to this Path or even interested in higher values of life.
Extract from the Preface by M.P. Pandit Sri Aurbindo Ashram, Pondicherry.
A special feature of this book is that the Sanskrit verses are a facsimile of Bhagavan Ramana’s handwriting.
