"Who can understand the state of the one

Who has dissolved his ego and
Is abiding always in the Self?

For him the Self alone is.
What remains for him to do?"

—Ramana

Timeless in Time: Sri Ramana Maharshi is a beautifully illustrated book on the life and message of an Indian saint of recent times. Sri Ramana Maharshi (1879-1950) was a unique spiritual teacher in India. He was the living embodiment of the Indian tradition of Advaita Vedanta, which focuses on the oneness of God with the human soul and all created things. The photographs, illustrations, and text combine to convey the powerful presence and teachings of this remarkable man whose legacy is still influential amongst generations of disciples and admirers in India and around the world.


Ramana was not a learned pundit or an accomplished academic philosopher; he was rather a living exemplar and embodiment of the deep spirituality and wisdom of the Advaita, or non-dualist, Vedantic tradition which has extended from the early Vedic writings, primarily the Upanisads, to the present. From early childhood, Ramana seemed obsessed with the central Advaitic question "Who am I"? and was able to answer it, as it were, in terms of his own state of realized consciousness of the undifferentiated oneness of being. He is said to have become enlightened when he was only sixteen years old.
