The “Talks with Sri Maharshi” are mainly selected from conversations that D has had with him since 1912. Some of these were later incorporated into the Ramana Gita and one or two booklets. These talks are given with a view to introduce the general reader to the main work, the philosophy of Sat-Darshan. The conversations with Sri Maharshi have been generally in Tamil, intermixed with a few English and Sanskrit words. We do not say ‘you’ in talking to him, nor does he refer to himself as ‘I’. They are used here for the purpose of English version. The name of ‘D’ is not mentioned as it is considered unnecessary for the purpose of the subject.
