Title: Who am I - nAn yAr?
Post by: Nagaraj on October 09, 2012, 10:05:47 AM
I just felt, among thousands of posts here, it is incomplete without Sri Bhagavan's, primary teaching, in his own words. This was essentially what he asked everybody to read. Hence, i am prompted to open this thread, reproducing the Who am I, nAn yAr, translated by Dr. TMP Mahadevan. request members to not use this thread for discussion, if required, we can open another thread for discussing anything regarding Who am I nAn yAr.



Who Am I? (Nan Yar?)
The Teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

As all living beings desire to be happy always, without misery, as in the case of everyone there is observed supreme love for one’s self, and as happiness alone is the cause for love, in order to gain that happiness which is one’s nature and which is experienced in the state of deep sleep where there is no mind, one should know one’s self. For that, the path of knowledge, the inquiry of the form “Who am I?”, is the principal means.

Dear Nagarajji, Friends,

Part of my current sadhana has been to listen, read and contemplate on "nAn yAr".  I would love to read  the tamil version of this work. If anyone is able to share the tamil pdf of this work I will appreciate it.

Om Namo Bhagavathe Sri Ramanaya

Dear latha and others,

The Tamizh original of NAn YAr? is available in both question and answer version and also as a full essay version.

The Q & A version is preferable, because it is as replied (in writing)  by Sri Bhagavan as was questioned by Sivaprakasam Pillai.

Arunachala Siva.
