Discussion of the book Annamalai Swami: Final Talks edited by David Godman

Sunday March 29 we will meet at my office at 46 Riverside Drive in Binghamton at 2 pm for 15 minutes of silent meditation followed by a discussion and commentary on the beautiful little book: Annamalai Swami: Final Talks (2006), edited by David Godman. Annamalai Swami was one of the devoted disciples of Ramana Maharshi, and trained with him from 1928 until Ramana's death in 1950. This book is a transcription of talks given by Annamalai in the final 6 months of his life, ending in October 1995 at the age of 89. In the book he responds to questions from students, and in the process gives a very clear understanding of the perspective taught by Ramana to him. It will be an interesting and helpful discussion for anyone interested in self-realization.
