Ramana Maharishi was a very popular saint who lived in Tiruvannamalai. Ramana Ashram is very popular among Indian and foreign devotees. It is being visited by thousands of devotees everyday. Seshadri Swamigal was also a saint and was contemporary to Ramana Maharishi. He also lived in the holy city of Tiruvannamalai. When Ramana came to Tiruvannamalai as a small boy, Seshadri Swamigal was one among those who supported and helped him.
