"Turn Eastwards"
« on: February 01, 2009, 10:05:05 AM »
In May 1938, Bhagavan Ramana, after having gone through the whole book of Mme. Pascaline Mallet's book 'Turn Inwards', spoke for about an hour on that book.  He said that the writing was full of feeling and the writer was sincere. The book is written in simple style and finishes off with remembrance of Himself. 

A few errors here and there might be pointed out to be corrected in subsequent editions.  Nandanar Charita had been repeated twice under the mistaken notion  that the incident was on two different occasions. Prithvi, Appu, etc., lingas were wrongly located.

Bhagavan Ramana thinks that the book was well written.  He interprets "Turn Eastwards" as "Turn to the Source of Light".

This book is a good supplement to Mr. Brunton's book.
