Sri Ramana Maharshi

Sri Ramana Maharshi (1879-1950): The silent sage of Tiruvanamali living at the feet of the Holy Mountain called “Arunachala,”… taught a simple path of self-inquiry and of always pondering the ultimate question: “Who am I?”  Quoted from prahlad.org

“As a young man of 17, in South India, he suddenly had an overwhelming sense of imminent death. So sure was he that he was about to die that he simply lay down and relaxed into the inevitable. Holding still as a corpse and holding his breath, as though already dead, he inquired into ‘who’ it was that died. What he realized was that the ‘I’, the awareness itself didn’t die. This was not just an insight, but a deep and permanent awakening to his eternal Self. A few weeks later he traveled to Arunachala Hill, an ancient sacred site, where he spent the next 50 years teaching others of this Self, and giving the silent transmission of awakened consciousness until his death in 1950.” from http://www.teleport.com/~atma/ramana.html
