The Hindu group has recently released the second edition of the book Sri Ramana Maharshi.
This is a wonderful book that delves into the life, teachings and legacy of Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi and the ashram. The content in the book significantly differs from the previous biographies and reminiscences of Bhagavan in its presentation. The content curator, Mr. T.S. Subramanian, has meticulously researched the narratives and confirmed it with the current devotees of Bhagavan residing in the ashram. A good part of the photo collection is exclusive, courtesy Sri Ramanasramam and some of the photographs are by Mr. S.R. Raghunathan.
The first forty pages of the book discuss the biography of Bhagavan. The next few pages of the book are devoted to how the current administration preserves the aura of spirituality and how the legacy is preserved in the archives of the ashram. The final section is on Arunachala, the wonderful divine Hill. If Bhagavan was attached to anything in his life, it was this Hill. The book also contains two fold-out posters: one of the Maharshi reclining on the sofa in the Old Hall and the other of the route of Giri pradakshina of the hill.
