A great mathematician and avowed interest in spirituality- does it not sound contradictory? Please throw light on this, Guru Maharaj Ji. Ans. Undoubtedly, Shrinivas Ramanujan was a great mathematician who was born on the sacred land of Bharat. In his short life span of 32 years, his contribution to the field of mathematics was so great, that even after a century, lovers of mathematics shower praises on him. … The talent in mathematics was therefore not a hereditary lineage for Ramanujan. … By the age of 11, he had mastered the subject of mathematics to a level comparable with the college students… But apart from all these qualities, Ramanujan was endowed with an extraordinary quality which made him stand apart from other mathematicians.
