From the back of the Book

Sri Ramana Maharshi was born in 1879. In his seventeenth year he attained enlightenment through a remarkable experience as if undergoing death of the physical bode while remaining in full consciousness. Following this transformation, he left his home and was drawn irresistibly to the sacred hill of Arunachala. He never left it. In the ashram which was formed around him he taught the purest form of Advaita Vedanta (non-duality) through the supremely simple discipline of Self-Enquiry.

…but the most remarkable thing about him was his personality. The impression of benevolence and dignity which this makes is really striking.
The New Statesman

…his presence had transformed a minor place of pilgrimage into a spiritual home for thousands of men and women of disparate creeds from various parts of the world-all seekers of truth-who have seen light and found Peace.

It is an unusual book for an Englishman to write-since in describing the life of the guru he has enlarged on many aspects of Indian spiritual life and thought, and has shown that he has understood much of what to the West seems to be meaningless or too difficult to comprehend.
Eastern World

He proved in his person that a consciousness transcending both the physical and mental plane was compatible with full use of the physical and mental faculties. Altogether the book gives an attractive picture of one who belonged to the true line of India's spiritual teachers.
