Great men are not accidentally born, they are born when the world waits for them in eager expectation, says Swami Vivekananda. The saints come, do their job and go, such is the phenomenon of Nature. India, that has always been the home of spirituality, was groping in darkness and had totally forgotten the age old system of yoga.
Solid materialism had taken the place of fine spiritualism. Dark clouds of ignorance were hovering all over, yogic transmission had become quite foreign to us. At this state, when spirituality was tottering helplessly some great personality was urgently needed, to set things right for the upliftment of mankind.
At such a time, the power of Nature descended in human form, as Samarth Guru Mahatma Ram Chandraji Maharaj of Fatehgarh, U.P., India. This spiritual genius was born on Basant Panchami, the 2nd February 1873 in a respectable family. He explored the vast fields of spirituality and evolved the remodelled system of yoga with the result that it has become easy for all the souls to grasp it and a good deal of time has been saved thereby.
