Who was the guru of Ramakrishna Paramhansa

Are there currently enlightened people at the level of Ramana Maharishi or Paramhansa Ramakrishna?

Prahlad Jani is an Indian sadhu who had a spiritual experience at the age of 11 and has been a follower of the goddess ever since Amba Mata became . He himself is also called Mataji known . Jani has lived as a hermit in a cave in the rainforest near the Gujarati Temple in Ambaji since the 1970s. He wakes up at 4 a.m. every day and spends most of his time meditating.
He has not had any food or water since 1940.

Jaggi Vasudev, a mystic from South India, is regarded by his followers as an enlightened living soul. He heads the Isha Foundation (NGO), which offers various programs for Kriya Yoga techniques and is also committed to environmental awareness and humanity.
This video describes his firsthand account of his enlightenment experience.

Recently, a mummified monk was found in Mongolia who is believed to be at least 200 years old and still alive!
The enlightened people don't need to be in the spotlight, so it is difficult to know if there are such others Sadhus currently there in the material world.

It it is also believed that Mahavatar Babaji is an avatar of Shiva living in human form. In his book, The Second Coming of Christ, Yogananda explains that Jesus Christ went to India and spoke to Mahavatar Babaji. This would make Babaji at least 2000 years old.

The realization happens differently for different people and there are some online forums where users describe this. For some people, the perception of time changes, for some physical changes, for other types of changes.


@ moonstar2001, I got my answer with another spiritual sadhu named Prahalad Jani (basically from Rajasthan) which is featured in many documentaries and indeed leads a humble life.
