Sri Ramana MaharshiHe was born in what is now Tiruchuli , Tamil Nadu , India. In , an attraction to the sacred hill Arunachala and the 63 Nayanars was aroused in him,  and in , at the age of 16, he had a "death-experience" where he became aware of a "current" or "force" avesam which he recognised as his true "I" or "self", [web 1]  and which he later identified with "the personal God, or Iswara ", [web 1] [note 2] that is, Shiva. This resulted in a state that he later described as "the state of mind of Iswara or the jnani". He soon attracted devotees who regarded him as an avatar and came to him for darshan "the sight of God" , and in later years an ashram grew up around him, where visitors received upadesa "spiritual instruction"  by sitting silently in his company asking questions. Ramana Maharshi approved a number of paths and practices,  but recommended self-enquiry as the principal means to remove ignorance and abide in Self-awareness, [web 2]  together with bhakti devotion or surrender to the Self.

THE Scriptures tell us that it is as difficult to trace the path a sage pursues, as it is to draw a line marking the course a bird takes in the air while on its wings. Most humans must be content with a slow and laborious journey towards the goal. But a few are born adepts, flying non-stop to the common home of all beings: The Supreme Self. Mankind takes heart when such a sage appears, and though unable to keep pace with him, feels uplifted by his presence and has a foretaste of the felicity before which worldly pleasures pale into nothing. Countless people who went to Tiruvannamalai during the lifetime of Maharshi Sri Ramana had this experience. They saw in him a sage without the least touch of worldliness, a saint of matchless purity, a witness to the eternal truth of Vedanta.
