H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji)
His admirers call him Papaji, and he was a devotee of Sri Ramana Maharshi. First, he was very effective at giving people glimpses of enlightenment. Second, he emphasized the aspect of neo-Advaita that appeals most to Westerners: the idea that realization is available immediately without effort. The modern Western satsang movement was created by his students when they came home from India to teach. Hari Wench Lal Poonja was born into an upper-class Brahmin family on October 13, in Gujrunwala in western Punjab, a part of India that is now in Pakistan, and raised in nearby Lyalpur, now called Faisalabad. He was the nephew of Swami Rama Tirtha, a famous saint who died four years before Poonja's birth.
Poonja discovered Ramana Maharshi in a remarkable manner. One morning, in , while he was sitting on his veranda in North India [now part of Pakistan], a wandering mendicant appeared before him. Papaji brought him some fruit and invited him to eat a meal at his home. He asked the mendicant if he knew anyone who could help him see God. He had already left his career in the Army and was devoting himself to sacred repetition and the performance of religious rituals. These efforts, aimed at experiencing God, had so far been fruitless.
