Advaita Bodha Deepika and Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi
« on: June 18, 2008, 10:56:30 AM »
Apart from three books about which I posted during the last 3
days, one of the other books esteemed by Bhagavan is "Advaita
Bodha Deepika".  This is a condensation of the philosophy of
Sankara and other sages.  Sri Karpatra Swami made this work
into  Sanskrit verse, of 12 chapters.  After him, some great man
rendered this in Tamil prose.  However, for some unknown reasons,
only 8 chapters are available from the Tamil work and the original
Sanskrit.   Sri Munagala Venkatramiah (Sri Ramanananda Saraswati,
the compiler of "Talks") rendered it in English. The English translation
was thorughly corrected and revised in Bhagavan's Presence.  I
request the fellow Forum-members to read this book, if they can
get hold of it.  It is available in Sri Ramanasramam.
