Translated by Dr T. V. Venkatasubramanian, Robert Butler
Edited and annotated by David Godman
Kovai (The Garland of the Guru's Sayings) is the most
authoritative collection of Ramana Maharshi's spoken teachings.
The first Tamil edition of the book, published in 1939, was
personally checked and revised by Ramana Maharshi himself.
The Guru Vachaka
Kovai verses, recorded by Muruganar in the last decades of
Ramana Maharshi's life, cover the full spectrum of his
teachings. This new translation of the entire work includes
previously unpublished explanatory notes by Muruganar and
supplementary teaching material by Sri Ramana that illustrates
or expands on the words of the original text.
There are two
translations of Guru Vachaka
Kovai available on this page, one by Sadhu Om and Michael
James, and the other by T. V. Venkatasubramanian, Robert Butler
and David Godman. Please identify which of the two you want to
purchase when you make your order.
