The most voluminous collection of dialogues with Sri Ramana Maharshi, covering almost every spiritual topic imaginable and recorded in English by Munagala Venkataramiah during the years 1935 to 1939. All the notes made to produce this book were shown to the Sage for approval, and every effort was made to record correctly both the question and answer as they occurred.

We highly recommend this book to all serious seekers.
