Once again, one hundred years ago, Alagammal climbed the sacred Arunachala Hill, in order to stay near her son. What had begun as an aging parent’s wish to live with her child, gradually became the surrender of a sadhika to her sadguru, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi.
In this book, the story of Alagammal’s spiritual journey has been told for the first time in the form of a narrative, a katha. The facts and dates are historical. The portrayal of her life’s journey is the humble attempt of the author to depict the pain and struggle of a young mother and widow whose destiny it was to lose much on the human level and yet to gain the ultimate release from the cycle of birth and death. This is the story of the journey of a soul from individual to universal motherhood.
Sri Ramanasramam is very happy to commemorate this historical event with the publication of Alagammal’s Journey, A Sadhana Katha .

Sri Ramana Leela
By Krishna Bhikshu, a fervent lawyer-devotee first published this Telugu biography of Sri Ramana in 1936. This is one of three biographies published during the Maharshi's bodily lifetime. The contents of the book was read and revised before Sri Ramana on at least three occasions, prior to reprinting. Ramana Leela, therefore, is the only biography of Sri Bhagavan that has been so thoroughly scrutinized by the Sage, and hence rings with authenticity. This English translation was first published in 2004.
