Ranjit Maharaj

Ranjit Maharaj

Ranjit Maharaj was born in Bombay on January 4th, 1913. Intensely religious as a child, he used to eagerly worship Lord Krishna. “But when I was my guru I forgot Lord Krishna,” he would declare shortly.

At the period of 12, he met his master Siddharameshwar Maharaj, a huge guru from the Navnath Sampradaya ritual who was also the master of Nisargadatta Maharaj. Ranjit Maharaj stayed with his Guru from this time until Siddharameshwar’s death in 1936.

While Siddharameshwar’s guru trained the extended and difficult path of dhyana or thought, Siddharameshwar honestly communicated information, gyana, of the final actuality to his disciples, including Ranjit Maharaj. This way, he said students could achieve englightenment very fast, like a bird as opposed to the Pipilika Marg or the way of the ant trained by his Master. It was this path that Ranjit Maharaj also taught his disciples.

Ranjit Maharaj did not begin to educate until 1983 at the age of 70 when rising numbers of seekers kept showing up at this door, following the death of Nisargadatta Maharaj two years earlier.

Satsang took place every day at his small flat in a busy commercial area in Mumbay. His teaching was in the stability of his master’s which emphasizes simplicity and honesty in speech.

Ranjit Maharaj made his first explore to the west only in 1996. He visited and gave meeting in USA and also in Europe.

Inside early 2000, Ranjit Maharaj suffers a stroke, which left him paralyzed on one side. In a moving face attachment, still in this state of health, he traveled almost 1,000 km by ambulance for the annual pilgrimage to Siddharameshwar’s Samadhi in Bagewadi in Karnataka.

Maharaj simply said, ‘That man is a jnani. He is a disciple of my Guru, but he is not teachings.’
