During the mid part of the twentieth century, a steady stream of visitors traveled to the ancient land of Tamil-Nadu, in the southern region of India to experience the remarkable presence and clear teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi. The Maharshi’s name needs little introduction for then as now, seekers who wish to awaken from the powerful illusions of the ego and abide in the perfect peace of their true nature have turned to his teachings. There was a spontaneous simplicity and humility about him. A sense of universal equality, and heart-melting love. His actions were natural and spontaneous and reflected a life that was fully identified with the one consciousness- the Self in all beings.
