Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Michael James spent more than eight years studying the original Tamil writings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana and of his foremost disciple, Sri Muruganar, in minute detail under the clear guidance of another close disciple, Sri Sadhu Om, and since the passing away of Sri Sadhu Om in 1985 he has continued to study and practise the spiritual path revealed by Sri Ramana. Together with Sri Sadhu Om, Michael has translated into English most of the original Tamil writings of Sri Ramana, and also Guru Vachaka Kovai, which is the most comprehensive and reliable collection of the sayings of Sri Ramana, recorded in 1255 Tamil verses composed by Sri Muruganar, with an additional 42 verses composed by Sri Ramana himself. Their translations of these works, which include detailed word-for-word meanings of most of the original verses composed by Sri Ramana, and their translations of many of Sri Sadhu Om's own Tamil verses, have been published in several volumes. This book contains Michael's own translations of the whole of Sri Ramana's prose treatise Nan Yar? (Who am I? ) and of most of the verses of his philosophical poems such as Upadesa Undiyar, Ulladu Narpadu, Ekatma Panchakam, Anma-Viddai and Upadesa Tanippakkal. An electronic copy of this book is available for free download on Michael's website, www.happinessofbeing.com, and many of his other writings are available on his blog, www.happinessofbeing.blogspot.com.
