Ramana Maharshi's Books
The Collected Works Of Ramana Maharshi
Edited by Arthur Osborne.
It contains the famous pamphlet "Who Am I". Osborne′s presentation of Ramana Maharshi′s teachings shows readers the purest
form of Advaita Vedanta (non-duality) through the supremely simple discipline of

: "Maharshi Ramana′s book is not much of a book, just a small pamphlet titled Who am
Ramana was neither a scholar nor was he educated very much. He left home when
he was only seventeen, and never returned. Who returns to the ordinary home
when one has found the real home? His method is a simple enquiry into your
innermost core by asking "Who am I?" He is really the founder of the
enlightenment intensive, not some American fellow, or fella, who pretends to
be the inventor of it.
I have said it is not a great book, but the man is great. Sometimes I mention
books which are great, written by a little man, very mediocre. Now I am
mentioning a really great man who wrote a very small book, just a few pages, a
pamphlet. Otherwise he was always silent. He spoke very little, just once in a
Kahlil Gibran would have been immensely benefited if he had gone to
Maharshi Ramana. Then he would have heard The Voice of the Master. Maharshi
Ramana would also have been benefited by Kahlil Gibran, because he could write
like nobody else. Ramana was a poor writer; Kahlil Gibran was a poor man, but a
great writer. Both together would have been a blessing to the world."
