Non-duality is a path of knowledge that urges us to enquire into the nature of our existence. According to Advaita, turning inward to find our true identity is the path to enlightenment. Unlike other spiritual methods, the teachings of an Advaita saint don’t include elaborate practices or rituals.
Instead, the focus is on asking who we indeed are (‘Who am I?’) and realizing (via experience and knowledge) the absolute truth that’s instantly available to anyone who’s willing to seek.
Many modern spiritual thinkers consider Ramana Maharshi to be the most excellent sage of the 20th century. However, this book helps many people to know and understand his teachings.
His ashram feet of Arunachala hills are the epitome of spirituality. It is a practice of many people from several parts of India, especially Southern India, to visit the ashram and get a sense of enlightenment.
