Sorupa Saram is the only known work by Sorupananda, a guru who lived and taught in South India about 500 years ago. He is said to have the power to silence the minds of even skeptical visitors. Sri Ramana frequently told the story of how he had effortlessly immersed a group of critical pandits in the silence of Self for three days after they had complained about the literary style of his chief disciple, Tattuvaraya.
Sri Ramana valued this work so highly that he included it on a six-item reading list of philosophical texts that he gave to Annamalai Swami.
