Translated by Dr H. Ramamoorthy and Nome
The Song of Ribhu comprises instructions and teachings the sage Ribhu that were given to his disciple Nidagha to assist him in realizing the Self. This is a full English translation of the Tamil text of Ribhu Gita that was read communally at Ramanasramam in the 1920s. In those days everyone at Ramanasramam, including Bhagavan, would sit in a circle and take it in turns to read extracts from the text, which repeatedly affirms the nature of reality and one’s identity with it. This is the only book that was regularly read in this way.
