Sri Suddhanda Bharati, was a freedom fighter, a great orator and
a Tamil poet, well versed in Tamil scriptures.  He was running a
magazine called Bharata Sakti.  He came to Bhagavan Ramana in
late 1920s and spent some years with Bhagavan Ramana.  He was
also an adept in Sivaraja Yoga.  One can see his photograph in the
8-volume edition of Arunachala's Ramana, the Boundless Ocean of
Grace.  He looks skinny, tall, very fair with shining eyes.  He compiled
the first Tamil biography of Bhagavan Ramana titled Sri Ramana Vijayam, covering upto 1934, was published in the same year.  The life of Bhagavan Ramana, the construction of Mathrubhuteswara Temple and its consecration, Ramana's Maha Nirvana etc., were
later added by Sri Sadhu Om and the book was published with
these information in 1958.  This is the second biography of Bhagavan
Ramana, after B.V. Narasimha Swami's Self Realization.
