Sri Ramanopadesa Noonmalai

By Ramana Maharshi

Edited by Michael James

Translation by Sadhu Om and Michael James


192 pages

Published by Sri Ramana Kshetra, Kanvashrama Trust, Tiruvannamalai, India

This is a new word-by-word translation of some of Bhagavan’s key works by Sadhu Om and Michael James. The works included are Ulladu Narpadu, Ulladu Narpadu Anubandham, Ekatma Panchakam, the Appalam Song and Atma Vidya Kirtanam.

In each of these works there is a word-for-word rendering, with the original Tamil term being followed by the English, a complete translation of the verse, and a few explanatory notes that usually elaborate on the philosophy expounded in the verse.

Michael James has added a long explanatory introduction.
