Ramana Maharshi

Ramana Maharshi means "Great Sage" maha = great from, rishi = Weiser, name Venkataraman) (* 12.30.1879, † 04.14.1950 in Tiruvannamalai, India).

Ramana Maharshi taught self-inquiry ( Atma Vichara ) by the question "Who am I?". He is considered one of the best known practices and representatives of the Advaita Vedanta of the 20th Century. Dozens of Western Satsang teacher called on him today and see him as their predecessors.

Ramana taught preferably by means of what followers "language of silence" called. However, he referred questioners like to Atma Vichara ("self-inquiry"), where he tried it with the question "Who am I?" On their "true self" to point. This "ultimate truth" in the Advaita as "being-consciousness-bliss" (Sanskrit: Sat-Chit-Ananda ) described. In the practice of self-inquiry, it is possible, according to Ramana, false identification with body and mind successfully dissolve. After that date the one reality that can not be something new in appearance. (Source:Wikipedia)
