Maharshi Arunmozhi (Tamil)
The Ashram has already uploaded some Audio books like ‘Collected Works of Sri Ramana Maharshi’. Sri Muruganar’s ‘Ramana Sannidhi Murai’ etc. and some ancient Tamil spiritual texts, highly regarded by Bhagavan Ramana, like ‘Ribhu Gitai’, ‘Ashtavakra Gitai’, etc. More such texts like ‘Ozhivil Odukkam’ etc. will be uploaded in course of time.
Now we are uploading a Tamil publication of the Ashram. Paul Brunton came to India in the early 1930s in search of Truth. This journey led him to many saints, yogis and fakirs but his search continued. A gentle persuasion by Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swami, the Sankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt, led Brunton to the Sage of Arunachala, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi in his ‘Hermitage in the Jungle’.
Brunton chronicled his encounters in India in his best known book ‘A Search in Secret India’. Three chapters of this book deal with the encounter of the most remarkable kind that he had in India, namely, his meetings with Ramana Maharshi at his ashram at the foot of Arunachala in Tiruvannamalai and the extraordinary experiences that he had there. Relevant portions of these chapters were published by the Ashram in the book ‘The Maharshi and his Message’, later translated into Tamil and a few other languages. The Tamil translation entitled ‘Maharshi Arunmozhi’ is now uploaded in the voice of Sri Govi.
Quote from Bhagavan
At least on one’s birthday one should mourn one’s entry into this world (samsara). To glorify and celebrate it instead is like delighting in decorating a corpse. To seek one’s self and merge in the Self – that is wisdom.
