This popular book, recounting the author’s visit to the Ashram of Sri Ramana Maharshi in 1949, was first published in 1953. It has been out of print for many years and is now republished in a limited edition by Sri Ramanasramam.In Days of great Peace inspired many westerners to seek spiritual guidance from Sri Ramana Maharshi in the Years following His Mahasamadhi.Through a narrative that is both simple and profound, the author takes us on his journey to the hermitage of the renowned Sage of Arunachala in South India. Basking in the radiance of the great Rishi, his mind turns inward, following the path of Self-inquiry of ‘Who Am I?’. He describes, with perceptive insight and emotion, how in the gracious presence of the Master, thoughts are stilled and one rests calmly in the thought-free, egoless state, which he calls ‘samadhi’. Before his final farewell of the holy Sage, he establishes the link of love that binds him to the Guru in an embrace that leads inevitably to final emancipation.Mouni Sadhu has left us a small treasure in this book. Readers will remember and cherish it through-out their lives.
