This small booklet contains a little-known 19th century text on advaita that was highly appreciated by Ramana Maharshi. Attributed to Vaiyai R. Subramanian, about whom very little is known, it summarizes key advaitic tenets, both theoretical and practical. In the 1930s Ramana Maharshi gave a list of six must-read advaita texts to Annamalai Swami. This text (Ellam Ondre in the original Tamil) made it to the list.
