Sri Mugavai Kanna Muruganar expressed his devotion by composing 30,000 exquisite Tamil poems over a span of 50 years in praise of his Satguru, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi. These poems have been published under various titles including Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai, Sri Ramana Jnana Bodham, Guru Vachaka Kovai etc., while some have been lost forever. Sri Muruganar took great care not to reveal many details about his own spiritual journey. However, he has left subtle clues buried in the depths of his brilliant poetry.

This book, Muruganar In His Own Words, is a celebration of this beloved poet’s spiritual journey — his inspiration, his struggles, his singular love, his complete surrender, his meticulous documentation of his Guru’s teachings, and his supreme realization — all revealed through his own words from the epic collection of his verses. Though these verses were written in classical Tamil, this book seeks to make them accessible to everyone including non-Tamil readers. It also delves into Muruganar’s influences from ancient saint-poets, the socio-cultural context during his youth, and his friendships with literary figures and devotees.

Most importantly, this work highlights Sri Muruganar’s unwavering single-pointed devotion and reverence for Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi. We pray to Sri Bhagavan that devotees will benefit from reading this book and also understand the value of devotion and surrender.
