The person that came to be called Sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar was born on December 1, 1918, along the banks of the Ganges in a village adjacent to Kashi, near Varanasi (Benares), India. Very early in his childhood he showed signs of a spiritual thirst, being equally drawn to the Saints and Sadhus that lived along the banks of the Ganges.

When he was 12 years old he had an initial spiritual Awakening. When pulling water from a well one night he saw a sparrow on the stone coping of the well wall. In a child-like impulse he threw the rope towards it, striking the bird causing it to fall to the ground. Stricken with uncontrollable sorrow and drenched in tears, he took the bird in his hands and pouring water into its beak in an effort to revive it, but the bird was dead. The bird's death raised a number of questions in his mind. He regretted his act and resented the fact that he acted impetuously, and if had not, the incident could have been averted. The suffering that he experienced filled his heart with compassion towards all creatures

When he was 16 years old, moved by an immense impusle to search for God, he left his home carrying nothing with him and began his journey in search of a Guru. In 1947, now 29 years of age, found him at the ashram of Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry. A disciple there suggested he visit Sri Ramana Maharshi at Tiruvannamalai. He lived there for three days and was filled with an even greater spiritual energy. There he obtained a newspaper clipping that led him to Swami Ramdas at Kanhangad in Kerala. He then returned to Varanasi. The following year, in 1948, he returned to Sri Aurobindo ashram. Then he went to Ramanashram and stayed there for two months, in proximity of Sri Ramana Maharshi. He felt the need for a Guru and returned to Swami Ramdas, then returned once again to the Himalayas. In 1952, moved by a powerful inner force, he returned to Swami Ramdas, and discovered his full brilliant spiritual light.

In 1959 he came to Tiruvannamalai to stay. For nearly 18 Years the Bhagwan spent his days usually with a group of followers under a tree in a farmer's field by the railway station, the Arunachaleswara Temple (the big temple at Thiruvannamalai), or on the parapet wall near the Ther (temple car or chariot) place.

In 1977 a devotee of the Bhagwan arranged a house on Sannadhi street near the temple. Devotees started visiting him in this house, spending hours discussing their spiritual and personal problems and Bhagwan solved their problems seemingly with ease. During the same period various devotees began writing books and articles about the Bhagwan’s life and the experiences they had under his auspices. They also created songs in praise of the Bhagwan in books and on recorded tapes, and in doing so, his fame began to spread.

In 1993 devotees sought the blessings from the Bhagwan for an Ashram and the Bhagwan granted permission. The ashram was eventually constructed not far from the southeast Lingam on the circambulation route in a place that was at one time called Agrahara Collai close to the Sri Seshadri Swamigal and the Ramana Ashram on Chengam Road, Tiruvannamalai.

On February 20, 2001 at 3:19AM in the Ashram at Thiruvannamalai, Bhagwan Sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar attained Siddhi(Mukthi) with Mahasamadhi.
