Here’s a short excerpt from the book’s chapter on the immortalized Hindu sage Ramana Maharshi:
While many of India’s greatest seers have expounded spiritual wisdom with a charisma presence and inspirational eloquence, the iconic sage Ramana Maharshi more so lived his life in accordance with the axiom that tells us actions speak louder than words. Despite the fact that he rarely wrote or publicly spoke, the Saint of Arunachala attracted masses of devotees with an unshakable commitment to God and the practice of meditation. This apparent difference between Maharshi, who was given the name Venkataraman Iyer at birth, and some of Hinduism’s other immortalized figures, however, isn’t to say that his life wasn’t infused with a sense of the divine mysticism that the world’s oldest religion is known for. In fact, just as in the case of Paramahansa Yogananda, Ramana Maharshi emanated an unusual spiritual radiance at a young age.”
