Sunday May 3 we will meet at my office in Binghamton at 2 pm for 15 minutes of silent meditation followed by a discussion and commentary on the book: Talks with Ramana Maharshi: On Realizing Abiding Peace and Happiness, published by Inner Directions in 2001. Here is a link to a free download of the book: http://www.dasglueck.de/download/maharshi/talks_with_sri_ramana_maharshi_complete.pdf
Do not be put off by the size of the book. Only read if you are drawn to do so. Here is a link to an excellent, brief, clear description of the self inquiry practice taught by Ramana Maharshi: http://realization.org/page/topics/self_inquiry.htm.
