The first ever published Work of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi is His Tamil prose translation of Viveka-chuda-mani in 1908. (Detailed account on this, is published in The Mountain Path – Oct 1985). At the repeated request of Krishnayyar and Gambiram Seshayyar, Bhagavan did this translation and mentioned therein, about the excellent poetical translation in Tamil by Tiru-vidai- marudur Ulaganatha Swami. In the introduction to this work, Bhagavan pointed out that Sri Sankaracharya after writing the commentaries on Prasthana traya, revealed the essence of the Prasthana traya, in this short treatise for the ardent seekers. Viveka-chuda-mani serves as an elegant commentary on the core teaching of Bhagavan’s “Who Am I”. A deep study of both of these works reveal that these two are complementary to each other. Hence the Sanskrit 580 verses, matching with the identical Tamil 662 poems, the prose of Bhagavan in Tamil and its English translation are presented here in Audio and text (pdf) formats with 25 sub-titles.
