In the 1920s and 30s Muruganar wrote Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai, an anthology of devotional poems in praise of Sri Bhagavan that was modeled on the Tiruvachakam of Mickkavachagar.
While he was composing in Sri Bhagavan’s presence, he took a break to go out and think about the title. When he returned to the hall, he was astonished to discover that Bhagavan had not only named the poem Ramana Puranam by writing this title on every page of the manuscript, he had also completed it by composing and adding about 300 additional lines.
Mr. Robert Butler, Dr. T. V. Venkatasubramanian and Mr. David Godman deserve the grateful thanks of all fellow devotees for translating and annotating this important text. It is now available to devotees who know English.
