Description
The renowned Indian sage Ramana Maharshi is beloved by Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, and Taoists alike for the inspirational power of his teachings, which transcend all religious differences. Here is a collection of Sri Ramana's instructions and discourses culled from three works: "Who Am I? ," " Spiritual Instructions ," ""and" Maharshi's Gospel. "These teachings are arranged by topics such as work and renunciation, silence and solitude, peace and happiness, and the discipline of self-inquiry. Reading this book, presented in question-and-answer format, evokes the feeling of being with this outstanding teacher at one of his intimate teaching sessions.



About the Author
Maharashi was born in 1879 into a Brahman family. His father died suddenly in 1892 and this death experience led to his Self Realization. He moved to the sacred mountain Arunachala, Tiruvannamalai, which he never left.

Jung studied medicine at Basel, and worked at the Burgholzli mental health clinic in Zurich (1900-1909). He met Freud in 1907, and became his leading collaborator. He became critical of Freud's approach in 1913, which caused a break between them.
