V. Ganesan grew up till the age of fourteen in the presence of his great uncle, Sri Ramana Maharshi. After the mahanirvana of Bhagavan in 1950, Sri Ganesan went on to get a Master’s Degree in Philosophy. After his return to Arunachala, Sri Ganesan was able to absorb reminiscences of Bhagavan that had never been recorded before. In addition to this, his close contacts with saints, sages and seers like Yogi Ramsuratkumar, Nisargadatta Maharaj and J. Krishnamurti, helped him to deepen and widen his understanding of the essence of Bhagavan’s Teachings.
For thirty-five years Sri Ganesan was the manager of Ramana Ashram, Tiruvannamalai, and for twenty-five years he was the managing editor of The Mountain Path, the ashram’s Newsletter. He looked after the old devotees of Sri Ramana as his sadhana, allowing him to absorb little-known reminiscences about Sri Ramana. His sessions of spiritual sharing are given at his home in Tiruvannamalai. He has authored several books on Sri Ramana Maharshi.
