Glimpses of the Life and Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi Frank H. Humphreys R.P.C. INTRODUCTION I do not like to stand between the earnest reader and this interesting piece of religious literature. But weak as I am, I shall do what little I can, being asked to do it. This is an impressive and instructive description by a young man (eager in search of Mahatmas for enlightenment) of his visit to, and experiences with Mahatma Sri Ramana Maharshi, a living Saint of South India who is known and revered as having attained the goal of the Vedantic religion, and who is the fountainhead of the soul-force to humanity in these days of rampant materialism. The description is concise and vivid and needs, in my opinion, no preface or introduction. In the Master’s presence, what a great vibration there is in the body, and how elevated the mind and invigorated the spirit are, a man can only feed but cannot express. The Master’s teaching is just what is needed in these times, when men are short in life, weak in body, and feeble in spirit, their entire attention being drawn to things material – apparent and temporal – in preference to what is spiritual – real and eternal. The whole teaching of Mahatma Sri Ramana Maharshi turns on the only pivot: ‘knowest thou thyself, thou wilt know everything and wilt have no more to know.’ He advocates a very simple process of enquiry, viz. “Who am I”?. A pure and constant thought of Atman – devoid of form, name and attribute – takes the thinker to the source of all thoughts – the heart, where the enquirer and the enquired are merged, or in a way lost in the enquiry, which is Mukti, liberation or Self-realization. This realization is the real worship of Atman – God within and without.
