FOREWORD TO THE ORIGINAL TAMIL VERSION
The Tamil-speaking world knows the life-history and the spiritualinstructions of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi well through the bookswhich have already come out. He shines in the resplendent ArunachalaHill (Tiruvannamalai) as the sun of knowledge which destroys the sorrowsof those who worship him. In this book named Upadesa Manjari (bouquetof spiritual instructions) Sri Natanananda, a true devotee of his, who servesand praises him by laying at his lotus feet many garlands of songs, has brought out Bhagavan’s words heard by him at different times. They consistof questions and answers comprising four chapters entitled
upadesa
(instruction),
abhyasa
(practice),
anubhava
(experience) and
arudha
(attainment). I humbly request devotees to accept this small book whichoffers wholesome food for the spirit.VISWANATHANSRI RAMANASRAMAM2-2-34INVOCATION

I seek refuge at the sacred feet of the blessed Ramana, who performs theentire work of creation, preservation and destruction, while remainingwholly unattached, and who makes us aware of what is real and thus protectsus, that I may set down his words fittingly.IMPORTANCE OF THE WORK Worshipping with the instruments (of thought, word and body) the sacredlotus feet of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, the very embodiment of the beginningless infinite supreme Brahman, the
Satchitananda
(existence,consciousness, bliss), I have gathered this bouquet of the flowers of hisinstructions (
upadesamanjari
) for the benefit of those who are foremostamong the seekers of Liberation and who are adored by learned persons,in order that they might adorn themselves with it and attain salvation.This book is an epitome of the immortal words of that great soul, Sri RamanaMaharshi, whose teachings entirely dispelled the doubts and wrong notionsof this humble person even as the sun dispels darkness.The subject of this book is that eternal Brahman which shines as the pinnacleand heart of all the
Vedas
and
 Agamas
.That incomparable Self-realization (
atmasiddhi
) which is praised by allthe Upanisads and which is the supreme good to be sought by all nobleaspirants (
brahmavids
) is the theme of this work.
