I have been practicing meditation for 34years. After reading this book,It gives me clarification, knowledge and inspiration how to balance my spiritual conscious life with the material world.great book.
"The Spiritual Teaching of Ramana Maharshi" may be of inestimable value to intermediate and advanced spiritual seekers, but, without equivocation, most of the messages in this book are way, way over my head. While learning about this saint from other sources including some videos, it is apparent to me that he is extremely advanced and is therefore in such an exulted state that presenting truths to an exceptionally untried seeker (like myself) may be a bit challenging; akin to Stephen Hawking describing "M Theory" to a frog. In many ways this work is congruent with "The Holy Science" in as much as it reads like an auto repair manual. Also, I'm not typically a great fan of dialectic (i.e. question and answer) type of works - they just seem cumbersome.
I'm sure that this book will have much value to other readers that are more spiritually mature than I am, but for me 3 stars on the board and a real 2.5 is all I can give.
While reading other works of Ramana, such as Talks, this is the best I have read as a succinct overview of his Teaching, and of Advaita (NonDuality). Each segment is an introduction to one vital aspect of the over-all Teaching, and each segment brief enough to be read in a matter of minutes. Reading Ramana is like sitting in the Presence of True Holiness: the spirit through the writings, that of Ramana and others like him, enhacing the wisdom and impressing it mysteriously upon the Heart: or as Ramana would say, the Guru pushing from without, the Guru pulling from within. OM Shanti
Good content, but difficult for readers to get the big picture. Due to the fragmentary nature of being excepts from numerous talks, the book comes across as a collection of somewhat authoritarian assertions by a revered guru, rather than persuasive, systematic explanations. I would recommend it only to people with a good background on non-dual vedanta.
Wer wissen will, wer er eigentlich ist, findet in diesem Buch essentielle Hinweise. Ramana Maharshi weist den Weg, wie das eigene Selbst zu finden ist. Was ist die Charakteristik dieses Selbst? Was bedeutet es aus dem Selbst zu leben? Das Buch gibt die Antworten.
Wer nach den Anweisungen des Buches aus dem Selbst lebt, meistert sein Leben und ist sich bewusst, dass er reines Bewusstsein ist, dem als Instrumente ein gesunder Körper und ein glasklarer Intellekt zur Verfügung stehen.
Ramana Maharshi lehrt direkt aus der kosmischen Innenschau, unabhängig von Lehrmeinungen und religiösen Ansichten. Er veranschaulicht im Buch sein Wissen mit Zitaten aus der Fülle des Vedanta.
