Michael James spent more than eight years studying the original Tamil writings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana and his foremost disciple, Sri Muruganar, in minute detail under the clear guidance of another close disciple, Sri Sadhu Om, and since the passing away of Sri Sadhu Om in 1985 he has continued to study, practise, translate and write about the spiritual teachings of Sri Ramana. In all his writings on the teachings of Sri Ramana, Michael focuses on their actual practice, which is atma-vicara (self-investigation or self-enquiry), a state of simple self-attentiveness — clear and calm contemplation upon our fundamental consciousness of being, 'I am' (which is also sometimes described in more devotional terms as the practice of complete self-surrender). While describing and discussing this practice, Michael also discusses its philosophical basis, explaining the rationale for seeking to experience true self-knowledge — perfectly clear consciousness of what we essentially are. Together with Sri Sadhu Om, Michael translated into English most of the original Tamil writings of Sri Ramana, and also 'Guru Vacaka Kovai', which is the most comprehensive and reliable collection of the sayings of Sri Ramana, recorded in 1255 Tamil verses composed by Sri Muruganar, with an additional 42 verses composed by Sri Ramana himself. Their translations of these works, which include detailed word-for-word meanings of most of the original verses composed by Sri Ramana, and their translations of many of Sri Sadhu Om's own Tamil verses, have been published in several volumes. In addition to his translations, Michael has written 'Happiness and the Art of Being', which is a detailed introduction to the philosophy and practice of the spiritual teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana, and which contains accurate and carefully worded translations by the author of the whole of Sri Ramana's prose treatise 'Nan Yar?' (Who am I?) and of most of the verses of his philosophical poems such as 'Upadesa Undiyar', 'Ulladu Narpadu', 'Ekatma Pancakam', 'Anma-Viddai' and 'Upadesa Tanippakkal'.

Sri Ramana's original works are quoted throughout the book with excellent commentaries. For example, Michael James has presented all the twenty paragraphs of the original essay version of Sri Ramana's 'Nan Yar?' or 'Who am I?' in different parts of the book with detailed commentary for each paragraph of 'Nan Yar?' Such a detailed commentary of 'Nan Yar?' is not available anywhere else. He seems to have mastered classical Tamil and it shows in his translation and commentary of 'Nan Yar'.
The final chapters deal with the technique of self-enquiry and will be very useful for serious practitioners of self-enquiry (atma-vichara).
Those who prefer a more concise discussion of Bhagavan Ramana's teachings can read Sri Sadhu Om's Path of Sri Ramana, Part 1. Both books follow similar pattern of discussion. (It should be noted here that Michael James spent more than eight years with Sri Sadhu Om who was a direct disciple of Bhagavan Ramana and also a close associate of Sri Ramana's foremost disciple, Sri Muruganar.) However, as mentioned above, 'Happiness and the Art of Being' also contains detailed commentary of Sri Ramana's original works like 'Nan Yar?' Personally, I enjoyed both the books and feel each has its own flavor.
Strongly recommend this book to any sincere student of Self-Enquiry (or Atma Vichara).
