Following is a list of some enlightened/realized masters. Omitted are the controversial ones (by my reckoning). Please note that 'living' masters are clearly not required, as the realized master is not the body. (Pls see eternal sadguru). Also see advisory at bottom.
2. Gautama Buddha: Still enlightening thousands of aspirants through various paths including Zen which has flourished in East Asia, and is moving to the West. Where do you find Him - everywhere. Remember Him and He will be there. With a Guru there's no such thing as distance. Where is the Buddha not ?
Very good reports from all.
Maybe remembered directly, or be found in Ramana Maharshi and Arunachala!
Arunachala, The Holy Hill, is located in South India at Tiruvannamalai, and is believed to be Lord Shiva (the Self) manifest as a hill. Arunachala is reputed to have enlightened many, including Ramana, and still calls aspirants.
5. Lord Krishna: The descriptions in the Bhagavad Gita of the enlightened state, and how to reach there are without doubt the utterances of an enlightened being, even though the Mahabharata may be suspected to be myth. Leave all dharmas and surrender all to Him - He will deliver you surely. Great for the devotionally inclined.14. Ajja - featured here a while back, is still alive and available (i think in Anand Kutir Ashram, Pondicherry, South India). See comment below.
15. Check out Robert Adams and disciple Ed.
