Bhagavan Shri Ramana Maharshi (1879-1950) was great saint achieved enlightenment at Arunachalam in Tamilnadu State. Great saints took birth with a specific reason to enlighten, liberate the people and to guide towards dharma and spirituality. This is also stated in the Hindu epic Shrimad Bhagavad-Gita. Please refer the following sloka told by lord Krishna himself to Arjun.
Yada Yada hi Dharmasya
Tatadmanam Srujamyaham (Geeta Chapter 4, Verse 7)
This means “O descendant Bharata, (Arjuna) whenever there is a decline in dharma and an abundance of unrighteousness I take form”.
Similarly great saints take birth on this earth to teach the people and to give guidance towards Dharma and spirituality ultimately to attain moksha. Bhagavan Shri Ramana Maharshi is also a saint born to teach for finding the God within each person by looking inward. He taught that the Atman within each person is God himself. The physical body and the Atman are two separate. The physical body dies whereas Atman has no death and it is present always. The atman reincarnate by taking another suitable body. Therefore he reiterated his devotees to know “Who Am I” by looking inward which is the fundamental secret of life. He also taught his devotees that nothing happens when it is not destined to happen on the other hand if it is destined to happen it will certainly happen. “Then why we should have to worry for the things which are not in our control”. Therefore maintain silence which is the only way to be calm and observe what is happening.
Meher Baba (Merwan Sheriar Irani) 1894-1969 was a great spiritual master born on February 25, 1894 to Sheriar Mundegar and to Shereen Ben belonging to Persian Zoroastrian family in Poona now known as Pune of Maharastra state. Before the birth of Meher Baba his mother experienced several indications that she is going to give birth to a great person.
Early life of Meher Baba: Meher Baba was a normal child like any other children of that age without any inclination towards spirituality. He was used to play games and excellent in singing and in playing musical instruments. His ordinary life took a turn towards spirituality at the age of 19 years (1913) with meeting of old Muslim women by name Hazrat Baba Zan. She kissed on his fore head and immediately he experienced a great spiritual and mystical feeling. He became unconscious for some time. She created spiritual awakening in him. This experience was so great to him that made him to stop all the normal activities. Later he met other great spiritual masters (perfect Masters) Shri Hazrat Tazuddin Baba of Nagpur, Narayan Maharaj of Kadagaon, Shirdi Sai Baba and Upasini Maha Raj of Sakon. Thus Meher Baba has five great Gurus or Masters who guided him for attaining a higher spirituality level and God realization in his life. After working with the five masters for about seven years vigorously, he started establishing his own circle of reliable disciples to spread the spiritual knowledge to the people. When Meher Baba met Shirdi Sai Baba in 1915 he stared into his eyes and called him as “Parvadigar” meaning the Almighty. Read more…

There is a saying, “God could not be everywhere, so he created Mother” which is so true. She gives birth to us putting her own life at risk. If there is anyone who doesn’t expect anything from us in return for everything they gave is a mother. Her love is unconditional and everlasting.
