Talks with Sri Ramana MaharshiThe “Talks”, rst published in three volumes, is now issued a handyone-volume edition. There is no doubt that the present edition will bereceived by aspirants all over the world with the same veneration and regard that the earlier edition elicited from them. This is not a book to be lightly read and laid aside; it is bound to prove to be an unfailingguide to increasing numbers of pilgrims to the Light Everlasting.We cannot be too grateful to Sri Munagala S. Venkataramiah (nowSwami Ramanananda Saraswati) for the record that he kept of the“Talks” covering a period of four years from 1935 to 1939. Thosedevotees who had the good fortune of seeing Bhagavan Ramanawill, on reading these “Talks”, become naturally reminiscent and recall with delight their own mental record of the words of theMaster. Despite the fact that the great Sage of Arunachala taughtfor the most part through silence, he did instruct through speechalso, and that too lucidly without bafing and beclouding the mindsof his listeners. One would wish that every word that he uttered had been preserved for posterity. But we have to be thankful for what little of the utterances has been put on record. These “Talks”will be found to throw light on the “Writings” of the Master;and probably it is best to study them along with the “Writings”,translations of which are available.Sri Ramana’s teachings were not given in general. In fact, the Sagehad no use for “lectures” or “discourses”. His words were primarilyaddressed to the particular aspirant who felt some difculty inhis spiritual path and sought to have it resolved. But, as the samedifculties arise in the quest after the Self and as the method of resolving them is the same, the Maharshi’s replies to questions havethe quality of universality.It is not all that can ask the right questions or frame them properly.The “Talks” of the Guru, therefore, is not simply to answer to the point, as in an examination paper. He has often to get behind thewords that constitute a question and correct the questioner even in
