Ohm Namo Bhagavate Shri Ramanaya!!!
It seems that Ramana Maharishi's life and his spiritual journey was unique and spontaneous flowering of an inner urge which he took cognizance and pursued ascetic living and hard life to seek the truth.
Dear usaiyer sir, if I may, a correction. Bhagavan realized the Self after his death experience when he was 16. He did not pursue ascetic living or hard life to seek truth. He had no guru, practised no sadhana, nor studied religious books. After realization it could be said that he lived what may be called an ascetic life although even this is questionable. That is about it.
