Guru Vachaka 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 This new translation of the entire work includes previously unpublished explanatory notes by Muruganar and supplementary teaching material by Sri Ramana that illustrates or expands on the words of the original text.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 from this website, one by Sadhu Om and Michael James, and the other by T. V. Venkatasubramanian, Robert Butler and David Godman.
