RamanaSwamy is a renowned exponent of the Ram chait Mana abd has been reciting Ram katha for over fifty years throughout the world.He was born in Tiruchuli, Tamil Nadu, India. In 1895, an attraction to the sacred hill Arunachala and the 63 Nayanmars was aroused in him, and in 1896, at the age of 16, he had a "death-experience" where he became aware of a "current" or "force" (avesam) which he recognized as his true "I" or "self",[ and which he later identified with "the personal God, that is, Shiva. This resulted in a state that he later described as "the state of mind of Iswara or the jnani".[web 1][note 3] Six weeks later he left his uncle's home in Madurai, and journeyed to the holy mountain Arunachala, in Tiruvannamalai, where he took on the role of a sannyasin (though not formally initiated), and remained for the rest of his life.
About Ramana Swamy
Understanding life through the prism of perception could only satisfy our endless queries of thoughts and conclusion arising out of our egos. But the mystery of this existence is not just limited to our sensory perceptions. The profound abundance of conscience fragments creates the illusion of our existence under a framework of time and space.This is what we call GOD and his creation.
The Ramayana is an epic poem which was first written from memory (smriti) by sage Valmiki in the Sanskrit language.
