The Power of the Presence, part one
By David Godman
Publisher, David Godman Books, Colorado, USA
The subtitle, ‘Transforming encounters with Sri Ramana Maharshi,’ explains the basic theme of the book. Each volume in this three-part series contains chapter-length accounts, usually narrated by individual devotees, which reveal what it was like to come under Sri Ramana’s influence and be transformed by his powerful presence. Each volume in this series contains a wide range of accounts arranged chronologically. There are stories by devotees from all walks of life, all of whom felt the magnetic pull of Sri Ramana. Some describe how Sri Ramana’s power and grace liberated them; others narrate how contact with Bhagavan transformed their lives and their world view.
