Paravidya Upanishad

We hold the copyright of two books hitherto unpublished, based on the teachings of Ramana Maharshi. In this respect in May, 2006, Ramana Ashram brought out the first book, The Paravidya Upanishad (The Supreme Science as Taught by Sri Ramana) written by Lakshmana Sharma "Who", an original devotee of Ramana Maharshi. The book comprising over 700 slokas expounds and explains the teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi. Much of the preparatory work in bringing this work to the public was done by a Mr. Sunder Hattangadi, a U.S. resident. Hopefully the second book by Lakshmana Sharma entitled Vedanta Saram of which we also have the copyright, will soon appear in publication.

Does this mean that the first book (and possibly the second, if Ramanashram buys the copyright too) is only availalbe for sale at Ramanashram?

The first book, Paravidya Upanishad is now available through Ramana Ashram and through various Ramana Maharshi specialist sites. The demand will be too limited for regular book stores to stock it.

Actually the copyright was not purchased by Ramana Ashram - permission was given to them to publish the first book. At this time no discussion has been made regarding the second book., i.e. Vedanta Saram.
