From the back cover:

The simple message of Sri Ramana Maharshi, one of India's most revered spiritual masters whose teachings, forty years after his death, are speaking to growing audiences worldwide. Be As You Are, edited by the librarian at the sages ashram - still flourishing - at the foot of the holy mountain of Arunachala, is a compendium of those riches as bequeathed personally to pilgrims hungry to discover what is ' the ultimate truth.'

'Nothing more than being in the pristine state,' declared Sri Ramana. Indeed it is claimed that his highest teachings, to those capable of receiving them, consisted of nothing but silence during which he transmitted a silent flow of power enabling individuals to experience, directly, what he meant by enlightenment. This book is for those of us who would remain perplexed, but enriched, by the silence.
