Guru Vachaka Kovai


Guru Vachaka Kovai, meaning ‘The Garland of the Guru’s Sayings’ is the most authoritative collection of Ramana Maharshi’s spoken teachings. The first Tamil edition of the book, published in 1939, was extensively reviewed and revised by Ramana himself. Ramana also composed new verses and provided supplementary teaching material which further expands on the original text.

This book eloquently and powerfully encapsulates Bhagavan’s teachings from the latter decades of his life. Recorded by Muruganar, a close devotee, Guru Vachaka Kovai presents and covers the full spectrum of Ramana’s teachings, making them as accessible for us today as they were to the many visitors and students of his time. 

Please note these unique books have travelled from India. Some have very minor cosmetic imperfections and are offered at a discounted price.

438. Consciousness is freedom from attachment; consciousness is immaculate; consciousness is intimacy with God; the consciousness that is free of forgetfulness is freedom from fear; consciousness is the immortalising ambrosia; know that consciousness is everything.

439. To know the vast length and breadth of consciousness, the depth of its base and the height of its summit, is alone the attainment of tranquility. Outside of this tranquility it is impossible for even the gods to know in its entirety the state of consciousness.
~ Guru Vachaka Kovai


About the cosmetic imperfections: these can vary, but are of the nature of a few pages having small folds in the corner, page cutting errors, smudges on inside pages, a few printing ink marks on the paper edges or damage to the cover or spine.
