Which books did Bhagavan recommend?
« on: February 20, 2014, 06:30:41 AM »
I seem to recall reading that Bhagavan recommended Anammalai Swami read a few different books. One was Ashtavakra Gita if I remember correctly. Can anybody share the full list of books Bhagavan recommended to Annamalai Swami and perhaps any other books he recommended? Stories of saints, poetry etc?

On another occasion, when I [Annamalai Swami] asked Bhagavan to select some reading material for me, he gave me a short-list of six books: Kaivalya Navanitam, Ribhu Gita, Ashtavakra Gita, Ellam Ondre, Swarupa Saram and Yoga Vasishta.

He laid particular stress on Ellam Ondre, telling me, 'If you want moksha write, read and practice the instructions in Ellam Ondre'.
