Author of 'Happiness and The Art Of Being - An Introduction to the philosophy and practice of the spiritual teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana.' Michael travelled overland to India when he was 19 to help find some deeper meaning to his life. He discovered the book 'Who Am I' by Ramana Maharashi and went to Tiruvannamallai where Ramana had lived to find out more about him. There he connected with Sri Sadhu Om who had been a student of Ramana Maharashi and ended up living there for 20 years. He learnt Tamil and translated many books into English. He is widely regarded now as the principle scholar of Ramana's teachings and spends his time translating his work.
