From the chapter PART III Diary of the book “Guru Ramana – Memories and Notes” by S. S. Cohen.

27th July

10.15 a.m. Maharshi calls the old devotees Professor Venkataramiah and Mr. Visvanathan, and makes them sit down. Mr. V. reads Atma-Bodha of Sri Shankaracharya, one verse in Samskrit and one in Tamil. Maharshi and Prof. V. follow in copies in their hands. The Tamil verses are Maharshi’s translation of it, on which he has been occupied since about a week. There has already been a Tamil translation in existence, but it did not please the Maharshi.
