Master Sri Maha Krishna Swami was born in Índia in 1935 and from his boyhood he had self-discovery as his single interest in life: discovering, broadening and expanding himself to the Universal Self. At the suggestion of Mahatma Gandhi he went to Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, the sage of Arunachala, and received the Sacred Initiation from him.
In the period he stayed with Ramana, Sri Maha Krishna Swami absorbed all that the Silent Force from this Sad Guru transmitted him through the Sacred Upadesa. He learnt how to master the mind and consequently brought under control the body and the senses. By the practice of deep meditation he became conscious of the Universal Self, which is the very essence of man.
After a few years a need for heading the West had arisen. And Sri
Maha Krishna Swami heard these words from Bhagavan Sri Ramana: “In the
West you will teach the Direct Path of Self-Realization to all. Do not
spread my name, but the Supreme Truth.”
