Under whatever name we worship, it leads us on to knowledge of the nameless, formless absolute. Yet to see one's Self in the Absolute, to subside into it and be one with it, this is the true knowledge of the truth. This is a typical translation by the Author of the Tamil original verse, Ulladu narpadu (Forty Verses of Existence) authored by Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sri Ramana hardly contributed any writings and probably this is the only major work. His Philosophy and Spirituality were more expounded by clearing the doubts of devotees by way of Questions and Answers.
