Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam

Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam is a devotional work composed by Mukavai Kanna Muruganar, a devotee of Ramana Maharshi, an enlightened Master who lived in South India at the foot of the holy mountain Arunachala until his maha nirvana in 1950. It is more than just a devotional work, since it embodies the teachings imparted by Ramana to Muruganar, through the medium of silence, and through the practice of self-enquiry, in which the aspirant dwells upon the 'I' sense in order to investigate the nature of his own consciousness.
Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam is simply the outpouring of love and devotion of a single devotee for his guru , and as such it is the reflection in the consciousness of another of the luminous presence of Sri Ramana Maharshi .
The love he feels for Ramana is no different from the knowledge of the truth of his own existence that Muruganar , like all devotees , so urgently seeks:

He is my Master manifesting as the light of true knowledge whose nature is love , and that same knowledge is the means by which I worship him , so that the awareness that is holy silence ,wherein love and knowledge are industinguishably merged ,has arisen within my heart as my true nature .
