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) place.

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

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,
