Bhagavan Ramana's poetry
« on: March 16, 2009, 02:39:06 PM »
Atmakuri Govindacharyulu has observed:

Bhagavan Ramana is the only poet who composed in Sanskrit,
Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam and His works have all appeared
in print. 

I also believe that there is no other poet in this world to match
Him in this regard.

Volume Number 5. Sri Ramanasramam, Tiruvannamalai.)
