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
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.
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.
