The Sage of Arunachala preferred to teach in silence. But when he did use words, he used only a few words and he used them with telling effect. What struck you most about what he said was the authority of knowing that backed each word uttered.
Though all of what Ramana said was rich with meaning, if one has to grasp the very core of his teaching, one needs to sieve and filter, doggedly staying focused on the very fundamentals of what he taught. Even those who have read many books on Ramana’s teachings will find this book different: focused on the ultimate happiness as one’s very nature.
More importantly, this book brings across points about Ramana’s sayings which have not been given adequate attention and significance. To give three instances:
* The very thought of God is Divine Favour. It is by God’s grace that a thought of God arises in the mind.
* There is absolutely no need to hurry about anything: everything must happen only at the precise time appointed by the Universal Law.
* The ego of the sage is like the remnants of a burnt rope.
