(1897–1981)

A teacher from a humble background, who earned his living as a cigarette (bīdī) seller in Mumbai. Initiated into a Nāth Siddha sampradāya, he achieved wider fame with the publication of a collection of his tape-recorded sayings in English translation, I Am That (1973). His essentially Advaitin teachings have since been championed by a number of Western, and Western-educated, disciples, such as the ex-banker, Ramesh Balsekar (b. 1919).
