Welcome to Yogi Ramsuratkumar

Brief biography



The person that came to be
called Sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar was
born on December 1, 1918, along
the banks of the Ganges in a
village adjacent to Kashi, near
Varanasi (Benares), India. Very
early in his childhood he showed
signs of a spiritual thirst,
being equally drawn to the Saints
and Sadhus that lived along the
banks of the Ganges.

When he was 12 years old he had
an initial spiritual Awakening.
When pulling water from a well
one night he saw a sparrow on the
stone coping of the well wall. In
a child-like impulse he threw the
rope towards it, striking the
bird causing it to fall to the
ground. Stricken with
uncontrollable sorrow and
drenched in tears, he took the
bird in his hands and pouring
water into its beak in an effort
to revive it, but the bird was
dead. The bird’s death raised a
number of questions in his mind.
He regretted his act and resented
the fact that he acted
impetuously, and if had not, the
incident could have been averted.
The suffering that he experienced
filled his heart with compassion
towards all creatures.

When he was 16 years old,
moved by an immense impusle to
search for God, he left his home
carrying nothing with him and
began his journey in search of a
Guru. In 1947, now 29 years of
age, found him at the ashram of
Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry. A
disciple there suggested he visit
Sri Ramana Maharshi at
Tiruvannamalai. He lived there
for three days and was filled
with an even greater spiritual
energy. There he obtained a
newspaper clipping that led him
to Swami Ramdas at Kanhangad in
Kerala. He then returned to
Varanasi. The following year, in
1948, he returned to Sri
Aurobindo ashram. Then he went to
Ramanashram and stayed there for
two months, in proximity of Sri
Ramana Maharshi. He felt the need
for a Guru and returned to Swami
Ramdas, then returned once again
to the Himalayas. In 1952, moved
by a powerful inner force, he
returned to Swami Ramdas, and
discovered his full brilliant
spiritual light.

In 1959 he came to Tiruvannamalai
to stay. For nearly 18 Years the
Bhagwan spent his days usually
with a group of followers under a
tree in a farmer’s field by the
railway station, the
Arunachaleswara Temple (the big
temple at Thiruvannamalai), or on
the parapet wall near the Ther
(temple car or chariot)

In 1977 a devotee of the Bhagwan
arranged a house on Sannadhi
street near the temple. Devotees
started visiting him in this
house, spending hours discussing
their spiritual and personal
problems and Bhagwan solved their
problems seemingly with ease.
During the same period various
devotees began writing books and
articles about the Bhagwan’s
life and the experiences they had
under his auspices. They also
created songs in praise of the
Bhagwan in books and on recorded
tapes, and in doing so, his fame
began to spread

In 1993 devotees sought the
blessings from the Bhagwan for an
Ashram and the Bhagwan granted
permission. The ashram was
eventually constructed not far
from the southeast Lingam on the
circambulation route in a place
that was at one time called
Agrahara Collai close to the Sri
Seshadri Swamigal and the Ramana
Ashram on Chengam Road,

On February 20, 2001 at 3:19AM
in the Ashram at Thiruvannamalai,
Bhagwan Sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar
attained Siddhi(Mukthi) with
Mahasamadhi being celeberated the
next day, February 21st, at 3P.M.
Among notable followers of Sri
Yogi Ramsuratkumar are the
American author Mariana
and a spiritual
teacher Awakened under the
Bhagwan’s auspices, Lee
