Today, not having the benefit of Bhagavan's physical presence, we find ourselves turning to his recorded works and images for our ongoing darshan. Indeed, contemplating a photo or rereading Bhagavan's timeless utterances provides inspiration and guidance for all who would seek him.
The present edition is a spiritual excursion into the heart of Bhagavan's teaching. A companion volume to the ever-popular "Heart is Thy Name", this collection seeks to pay tribute to the aesthetic virtues of its predecessor.
This collection picks up were the previous ones left off and offers fresh glimpses of the Maharshi and the Ashram environs, garlanding them with penetrating selections from "Talks" and other works of Sri Bhagavan. As with the earlier collections, the citations in this volume have been freely adapted without the burden of editorial commentary in order to facilitate a more meditative reading.

Compiled by Swami Rajeswarananda. This small book published by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan contains an integral compilation of the Maharshi's teachings in a lucid essay form, ending with a dialogue of questions and answers.
Gems from Bhagavan
An extremely useful collection of the Maharshi's teachings, compiled and edited by Devaraja Mudaliar, and broken into thirteen subject-chapters with such titles as "Heart," "Grace and Guru," "Fate and Free Will" and "Mind"; all of them incorporating the salient teachings of the Sage.
pp.58 $4.00 Extracts
By 'Who' (K. Lakshmana Sarma). An English rendering with explanatory notes of 350 Sanskrit verses embodying the oral teachings of Sri Bhagavan. About 300 of the verses are originally from Sri Muruganar's Guru Vachaka Kovai (The Garland of Guru's Sayings).
Heart Is Thy Name, Oh Lord
Definitely the most attractive book ever published by Sri Ramanasramam. In "Heart is Thy Name, Oh Lord", Bharati Mirchandani has exquisitely harmonized two incomparable aspects of Sri Ramana Maharshi -- his simple, direct teachings and His Divine Presence.
This subtle art of weaving together photos and quotations in a complimentary manner delightfully brings home the Master's unique personality and message.

Maha Yoga of Bhagavan Sri Ramana
By 'Who' (K. Lakshmana Sarma). This profound exposition of Sri Ramana Maharshi's teachings is the result of an intimate association with the Sage for more than twenty years. The author spent two or three years translating to Sanskrit some of the Maharshi's Tamil works, and during this period he received long and pertinent instructions on all aspects of the Maharshi's practical philosophy. This book is the most thorough and intriguing study of his teachings, providing a firm theoretical foundation on which to understand their practical application. (2000 Edition)
Edited by Arthur Osborne. This is a comprehensive selection of dialogues with Sri Ramana Maharshi, with brief, insightful explanatory notes that clarify and simplify the practical application of his teachings.
Thus Spake Ramana
Edited by Swami Rajeswarananda. A pocket-size book containing 125 passages selected from Sri Ramana Maharshi's teachings.
