This is the fourth revised edition of Conscious Immortality first published in 1983. It is a record of conversations and observations made by Paul Brunton and Munagala S. Venkataramiah, the compiler of Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi during the second half the 1930s. Just over half the record in Conscious Immortality can also be found in "Talks."
Since Brunton's notebook is a historical document, the ashram has reprinted the notebook adhering as closely as possible to its original format and style. The editing has been minimal.
There is a wealth of instruction in the notebook and the devotees can gain immeasurably from this new edition.
