Satsangs

All who are interested in the Maharshi’s Teachings are welcome to attend our Satsangs.

In Person Satsangs

Face-to-Face Meetings have resumed on a monthly basis, funded by donation. The next meeting will be on 18 June from 2-6 pm at Colet House, 151 Talgarth Rd, London W14 9DA. (Barons Court is the nearest tube station served by District and Piccadilly lines). The meeting will include some reading, meditation and discussion. All devotees of Sri Ramana Maharshi are welcome. To join, please contact us.

Online Satsangs

These satsangs are held on the second and last Saturday of every month at 2 pm (UK time). To obtain the Zoom link to participate in any of these Satsangs please contact us.

Starting from 12 March Michael James will explain in-depth 'Aksharamanamalai' - Marital Garland of Letters - composed by Sri Ramana Maharshi in 1914/1915 when living in Virupaksha Cave. The effect of these verses, an outpouring of intensely ecstatic devotion, is heightened and enriched by the use of the imagery of bridal mysticism. These 108 mantras, a beautiful garland of verses, are soaked in intense love and deep and profound thought. It tells in glowing symbolism of the love and union between the human soul and God, and is among the most profound and moving poems in any language. Although he who wrote it was established in the bliss of indissoluble Union, it was written for the sake of devotees and expresses the attitude of the soul that still aspires.

These talks should be available as usual on the Sri Ramana Teachings channel on YouTube soon after each meeting and a parallel series of articles will be appearing on Michael’s blog.

Michael will take any questions arising from this topic followed by any questions on which devotees might need clarification. Since the meetings are recorded and then shown on YouTube, no private questions will be answered on Zoom.

Books

Books concerning Ramana Maharshi and other spiritual books can be purchased by emailing books@ramana-maharshi.org.uk. Postage will be charged in addition to the prices listed. You will need to provide us with your postal address and state whether you would like to pay by bank transfer or cheque. For devotees living outside the UK, to make an online money transfer, Wise (previously called TransferWise) is a good option. The Foundation does not have any other facility for payment.

Because of the high cost of postage, we recommend that devotees in the USA purchase books from Arunachala Ashram in New York, and that devotees in India obtain books from the Ramanashram Bookstore.
