Ramana Maharshi – A Spiritual Giant of the Twentieth Century
Ramana Maharshi was one of the greatest saints of India. Eminent psychologist Carl Jung described him as the ‘whitest spot in a white space.’ He was known for being a fully self-realized being. Born as Venkataraman Iyer, he was transformed by a ‘death experience’ at the tender age of 16 and left his home to embrace the life of a saint.
His self-realization was a great gift to the world. Ramana loved silence and simplicity. Many people came to visit him and were transformed by the quality of his strong presence. Even today, many people go to Tiruvannamalai to visit his ashram.
