Dear Nagaraj,

I am not very sure about a Sanskrit version.  It has been
done in Telugu, as per information given by a devotee
in Tiruvannamalai.

Thanks Dear Subramanian,

I was trying to read the Tamizh rendering of Akshara Mani Malai. Its so beautiful. Unfotunately, I have not learnt Tamizh thought its my mother tongue as I was bought up here in Bangalore. But due to personal interest, I learnt Tamizh myself, Though I manage to read easy tamizh reading and understand most of it, still I find it little difficult to understand few words in all tamizh works of Bhagawan. I have to stick to English and learn the meanings, thats the only resort now :)

Dear Nagaraj

There is one web site. They play recorded akshara mani malai song. If you download it, you can sing along with them.
In Ramana kendra people also sing on specific days in group. So you can catch the correct prounciation.
There are plenty of great works in tamil literature in the field of advaitam but outside India do not know. It is Bhagavan's grace, lots of western people
have a chance of Tamil language. The credit goes to Bhagavan.

Dear Nagaraj and Ramanaduli,

There is an official blog of Sri Ramanasramam, www.sriramanamaharshi.org.  You can go there and there
is a sub-route to "e library".  There all songs of Bhagavan
Ramana have been recorded in melodious music.  You can
pick up AAMM and listen to it, while reading from the book.
You are sure to learn it without mastering the language, as
my wife does many Kannada songs of Purandara Dasa and
Jnanadeva's Marathi abangams. 

Arunachala Siva.
