Questioned after his journey to India why he didn't visit Ramana Maharshi at the ashram that bears his name, in Tiruvanamalai, Carl Jung
answered that he wanted to maintain his objectivity towards the Indian spirituality. A close meeting with Ramana, with his specific environment, would have influence him in this respect.
Paul Brunton, the author of a book that contains several chapters dedicated to Ramana Maharshi, declared at last that Ramana has been innate endowed for
the life of retreat, isolation and indifference concerning the world around, and his ashram is not what it would have to be.
This site tries to elucidate the following questions: is
Ramana Maharshi an authentic spiritual master or just an empty image created by the Indian superstition? What is the nature of his spiritual experience? And, last but not least,
does he transmit us a way for the discovery of our inner essence (the Self)?
Ramana Maharshi started his spiritual journey after an inner experience which he described many times lately. He was just a young boy named Venkataraman and son of a lawyer from Tiruchuli.
He met spontaneously with the fear of imminent bodily death and he discovered thus his inner Self. Then he felt attracted without any apparent reason by Arunachala and followed this attraction by quitting
everything worldly in his life. Soon enough, he became the Maharshi.
