Ramana Maharshi-Self Inquiry

Fortunately, we all have a wonderful set of gurus, maharshis in the past 100 years, and they are really par excellent. They all manifested on this earth to provide the absolute knowledge in different forms to suit to the taste of the seekers. One of these gurus is Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi.
He was born to a middle class family,in Dec 30 1879, studied in missionary school till 16th year , in Madhurai, Tamilnadu, India. He renounced his interest in the mundane life, reached Tiruvannamalai and conducted penance for many years silently.All the years he was inquiring who really he is. It is not the body, mind, but some thing else. He has no guru but enlightened by his inquiry.
The Inquiry is " who is that knowing every thing, who is that answering to the call, who is this I :"
He was very simple lived saint, or guru. He has lots of disciples. I felt a bit difficult to understand the philosophy or method he suggested because it is very abstract and direct method for self realization. But his method is sure way to reach the destination.

Ramana maharshi left his body in 1950. Though he has not encouraged to show any type of miracles, but many are associated with him. He lived in Tiruavnnamalai, and that place has a pious hill called Arunachala. At the age of 16, when he heard the word arunachala first time, he fell unconscious and further reached this place.
What Saint sundarachaithanya says is though there is no guru to him in this life, his past life completed all the needed education through guru, and this life completed the last remaining small karma to attain his siddhi or Moksha.(nirvana).
He is surely the guru whose teachings must be read. He throws light on the areas which were not touched by any body in that way. Many followers, disciples compiled his history, teachings in the form of books
