Ramana Puranam


Introduction to Ramana Puranam

‘Ramana Puranam’ is a long poem that was jointly composed by Ramana Maharshi and Muruganar in the 1930s. Muruganar wrote the first two hundred lines (approximately) and Sri Ramana later completed it by adding over three hundred more. It was eventually published in Tamil as the first poem in Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai, a work by Muruganar that was modelled on Manikkavachagar’s Tiruvachakam.
