Composed by Sri Muruganar. Translation by Prof. K. Swaminathan
Published by V. S. Ramanan, President, Sri Ramanasramam
In the 1920s and 30s Muruganar composed a long book entitled Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai that was modelled on the Tiruvachakam of Manikkavachagar, a Tamil devotional text written more than a thousand years ago. Muruganar’s book comprises a series of long poems that praise Sri Ramana and occasionally record some of his teachings. The book has never been translated in full, but this selection of 473 verses, translated by Prof. K. Swaminathan, contains about a quarter of the original text, along with translations from some of Muruganar's other poetical works.
