Sri H.W.L Poonja, lovingly referred to as Papaji, was born in the western Punjab, October 13, 1910. His family life and child hood were intensely devotional. Even as a young man his only interest was to find someone who could show him God.

In 1944 his longing was fulfilled when he met his Master, Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi. He realised the Self in his presence, in the shadow of the holy mountain Arunachala.

He met his family responsibilities as a mining supervisor in the jungles of Kerela. After retirement he travelled a lot and settled in Lucknow, North India, only after health problems prevented him from travelling. It was in this hot and dusty town that hundreds of Western devotees had the luck to sit in the presence of this truly free being.

Papaji died in Lucknow September 6, 1997. His ashes were immersed in the Ganga at Haridwar.
