Translated from the original Sanskrit by Dr. H. Ramamoorthy and Nome
1st edition 1995, p 396 + xxxiii hard cover
This translation is the first time that this essential and classic work of Advaita Vedanta has been published in English, and in full. It is a consummate work of the spirit, an astonishing description of direct Nondual experience and understanding.
H.H. Sri Chandrasekharendra Sarasvati, a Sankaracharya of the Kamakoti Pitha, has stated in glowing terms that the "Ribhu Gita" is to the Sivarahasya as the "Bhagavad Gita" is to the Mahabharata.
First-hand descriptions of the experience of Nonduality are precious and rare. None is more powerful than this classic. Its uncompromising declaration communicates the uninterrupted direct experience of the Sage known as Ribhu. The language is accessible, forceful -- and points clearly beyond the limits of time and circumstance. The Indian cultural frame, traditional dialog between Guru and disciple, is subsumed into the directly penetrating insight that is absolute, beyond any concept.
May we all recognize in this text the freedom and happiness of the Absolute, our True Nature, as reflected in the words of the great Sage Ribhu!
