His vast experience and study of vRamana Maharshis teachings shine ca new light on the true nature of vthe human.
a rare book as its more of a study and meditation on consciousness and also a workbook with very clear instructions on how to aquaint oneself with the innate eternal unsullied aspect of the being .
I recommend reading this book again and again as you will discover hidden secrets within just by taking his words as gospel.
Conciousness is an unbroken thread,a few pages a day will open new doors that would have otherwise remained closed .
An essential read for the sincere aspirant
The book reveals that in his talks with people at Sri Ramanasramam Sri Bhagavan tailored his teachings to the capacities of his questioners, and hence often diluted his own teachings if the person before him was unable/unwilling to receive his highest teachings. As these 'Talks with Ramana Maharshi' were later published and widely circulated it led to widespread misunderstanding about what exactly are the highest teachings of the Sage. Michael James' book, by concentrating on the works written by the Sage himself, clears up that misunderstanding.
Happiness and the Art of Being is a masterpiece. It is so rich in depth and meaning that although I have just finished reading it for the second time I will be re-reading it over and over again. In order for Self-realisation to happen Bhagavan spoke of the need for 'the push of the Guru from without, and the pull of grace from within'. I regard this book as a very significant part of that 'push' that Bhagavan is giving his followers today. What greater service could a book provide than that?
You see Michael not only speaks English but he is also extremely knowledgeable and proficient translating Tamil and Sanskrit into English. As you know Bhagavan Sri Ramana wrote his teachings in these languages not in English.
The usefulness of translated texts are hugely dependent on the accuracy of the translation. Plus the passion, enthusiasm and skill of the translator is a vitally important factor.
It becomes clear from reading this book that Michael James is filled with love and is completely devoted to Bhagavan and his priceless teachings. This wonderful book is a manifestation of this love and devotion.
The knowledge in a translated book can be very easily misinterpreted and misunderstood. Lucky for us Michael James spent many years in India and more than 8 years in the presence of one of Bhagavan's closest devotees Sri Sadhu Om.
Michael therefore has the rare gift to be able to combine his knowledge of English, Tamil, Sanskrit and use it to help him share his deep understanding about Bhagavan's teachings with us. The same understanding he gained through the many years of study,devotion and the time he spent in the close company of Sri Sadhu Om.
If you speak English then there are a lot of books on Bhagavan Sri Ramana to choose from.
I highly recommend this book to you along with Michael James & Sri Sadhu Om's other books / translations of Bhagavan Sri Ramana's teachings.
These books could be the only books you need on your spiritual journey (contradiction I know).
If you speak English and want to deeply understand the teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana then quite simply buy this book .. you will be so glad and grateful that you did.
I must point out like most great books it is best to read it many times as your understanding deepens on subsequent readings until eventually no more reading is necessary. All that remains is to be.
All the best to you and thank you very much for reading my review of this wonderful book.
