About me

Introduction The author of this blog, Michael James, lived in Tiruvannamalai from 1976 to 1996, and while there he spent more than eight years studying the teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana under the clear guidance of one of his foremost disciples, Sri Sadhu Om, by assisting him firstly in the translation of Guru Vācaka Kōvai, and later in the translation of Bhagavan’s own writings. Since then he has continued to study and practise Bhagavan’s teachings, and to revise and refine many of the early translations he did with Sadhu Om. Among his latest refinements of those translations are:

Upadēśa Undiyār
