The sanskrit recital of Ribhu Gita is available from Ramana Ashram as a MP3 CD.
It is a pure Sanskrit recital without any English translation.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

This book is an English translation of Ribhu Gita (may be the only one existing) from Aurobindo Ashram press, Pondichery. This book needs to be purchased. However the book does not seem to have any Sanskrit text, only English.

http://books.google.co.in/books?id=8XL-bc7TzRwC&dq=ribhu+gita&printsec=frontcover&source=bl&ots=R32qQVaVJw&sig=OrkJuVEfFetx8O37u5ypgHpLNi4&hl=en&ei=8rATS__UGtiZkQXXte2iBw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CAsQ6AEwATgK#v=onepage&q=&f=false

This is how to order the Ribhu Gita mp3 CD from Ramana Ashram:

The missing piece is the Sanskrit text.
Let me try to find it out.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

Dear srkudai,

The Sanskrit Original with English translation has been published
by Motilal Banarasi Das and Co.  long time back.  I shall check
up with Vedanta Book House, Bangalore as early as possible.
I do not know about the recitation in Sanskrit.

Arunachala Siva.

The one I have is a translation by Ramamoorthi and "Master Nome". It's a pretty big book.

Can anyone give me more information regarding both authors and particularly "Nome". I ask because I would like to be sure that the translation is really in an unaltered form compared with the original text.

Love
Oh Arunachala, blazing fire of Jnana, in my heart I pray and think of Thee from afar, root out the ego, merging me in the Self.

Dear srkudai,

Many people have given information to you, which I trust, is
more than adequate for you.  Nome's real name is not known.
He has written an article about Bhagavan Ramana in the same
name, in the centenary souvenir issue.  I guess, it is No - me.

The CD of Sri Ramanasramam, contains recitation only of
Chapter 26 of Ribhu Gita, which is the heart of the matter.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,

I bought this Ribhu Gita., Sanskrit - English prose translation
today at Sri Ramanasramam.  They gave a discount for the book
since it is Bhagavan Ramana's Jayanti.  It does not contain the
prayer songs to Nataraja, (one at the end of each chapter) as in Tamil version of Ulaganatha Swamigal, since this was included as
per Nataraja's order to Swamigal.  I am yet to start on Lingeshwara
Rao's book.

Arunachala Siva.
