FROM THE BOOK PREFACE:
In The Guiding Presence of Sri Ramana, Sri K. K. Nambiar, an ardent devotee, has given us an intimate glimpse into his life as guided by his Master, Bhagavan Sri Ramana. We are grateful to the Ramana Kendra, Madras, for requesting its Chairman, Sri K. K. Nambiar, to give a series of talks on his reminiscences of Sri Bhagavan. These reminiscences which span over five decades of service and devotion to Sri Bhagavan and Sri Ramanasramam, have now been collected to form this book.
The instances of Bhagavan's Grace abound through these pages. The famous instance in which Bhagavan appeared to him in a dream and demanded of him a bound notebook is well-known to Ramana-bhaktas. It is vividly recorded in Day by Day with Bhagavan, p. 246 and My Recollections of Bhagavan Sri Ramana, p. 129.
Sri Nambiar's professional work took him abroad, to England and America. He gives us a vivid description of his meeting with two very sincere devotees of the Master. The first is Mrs. Victoria Doe of UK who had never seen Bhagavan but was devoted to Him in thought, word and deed.
The second was Mrs. Eleanor Pauline Noye, a devotee living in California, who had been to India and sat at the Master's feet; and was living in constant thought of Him. These are but two of many interesting instances related by Sri Nambiar portraying the grace and guidance of Sri Bhagavan in even the smallest details of a devotee's life. It is always a pleasure and joy to read and ponder such reminiscences which make the presence of Sri Bhagavan vivid and enduring.
Sri Nambiar has proved to be a pillar of strength to the Ashram administration from the days of Bhagavan; he is now serving on the Editorial Board of the Ashram journal, The Mountain Path. He, along with his wife, Smt. Janaki Nambiar, always participates in all important functions at the Ashram.
