Yogi Ramsuratkumar


In the glorious Arunachala Puranam, it records the appearance of Paramashiva as an infinite effulgence of light, called lingodbhava, in Tiruvannamalai, South- the exact location of the sacred Arunachala Hill. He assumed this form to unveil His infinite form and liberate the Gods, Brahma and Vishnu from their egotistical patterns.

In this supreme manifestation, He blesses humanity with the promise to be available in the three-fold form 1.) form of the sacred hill Arunachala that continuously radiates the energy of Enlightenment 2.) form of worshipful Siva Linga deity in the Arunachaleshwara temple in Tiruvannamalai and 3.) as a living incarnation to continuously guide the people in the path of Enlightenment. This lineage includes the great Incarnations Seshadri Swamigal, Ramana Maharishi and the powerful, well-known Guru – Yogi Ramsurat Kumar.

Yogi Ramsuratkumar was born in the town called Laalgunj near Kashi, in North India, on December 18, 1918 and from a young age, was always attracted to the dense spiritual life that existed in the sacred city of Kashi. Finally in 1952, in order to pursue his ultimate purpose, he left Varanasi for Anandashram in Kerala. Yogi Ramsuratkumar himself says that his moment of enlightenment was the moment of initiation from Swami Ramdas into the mantra, “Om Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram” . Upon coming to Tiruvannamalai in 1959, Yogi Ramsuratkumar received initiation from Ramana Maharshi, when he was ordained as the next successor of the ancient Arunachala Sampradaya and the ancient kingdom of Adi Arunachala Samrajyam.

From the main Tiruvannamalai train station to the Punnai Tree, then from the burial ground to his own house which was owned and maintained by his devotees Yogi Ramsuratkumar began enriching everyone who approached him. His extremely profound and unorthodox teachings attracted the seekers even from the west. Yogi Ramsuratkumar became highly established not only in the great town surrounding Arunachala but also in global platforms.
