It sounds rather unbelievable but reality dawns only when one listens to Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan with an open mind. Also when one sees how many fields of human endeavor Guruji has mastered, it becomes clear that the meditation HE teaches is an extremely powerful tool to achieve self confidence. People find it difficult to excel in one chosen vocation. But Guruji has mastered every sphere of positive human  activity with an unbelievable ease and panache. These gifts are not ordinary. Ranging from Music to Engineering, from Sports to Agriculture, from Spiritualism to Science; Getting to know Guruji is a wonderful vista of discovery. The one common underlying message is that if we raise our inner consciousness through true meditation then excellence is just a small step away. The inner reservoir of self confidence needs to be tapped which is possible only through true meditation.

Apart from being the Spiritual Preceptor of Dera Sacha Sauda who teaches free ...more

E doesn't proclaim himself as God. He'll be a friend to you in this journey of life. He had dedicated his whole life for the service of humanity. Thousands of followers who are following the oath showed by him are also working towards helping the mankind. There is no such person in today's era who has influenced such a large crowd. And people with a different opinion are requested to not post hurtful comments. We understand it's your choice but we are not here to debate. And as far as I'm concerned he is the greatest leader.

Great man. Always work for humanity, practice 106 human-welfare tasks. Motivates his 5 million volunteers to work on same. Has his name in Guinness Book of World records for largest blood donation, tree plantation etc. and that too multiple times. Not only this, in any natural calamity such as earthquakes etc. ; goes himself and sends his welfare force to help the victims

I have never seen anyone like him who serve the humanity. I have seen his followers help the people in following areas : help widow women's by providing shelter, help disabled person by free treatment, make him able to work and provide him training for work, serve the humanity in natural disasters. Even recently he helped the people of the Nepal by providing them house hold articles include food, water, clothes etc. In today's world where everyone thinks for himself, guru ji always think about others. I am happy to be a part of this.

2 Guru Gobind Singh Guru Gobind Singh; born Gobind Rai, was the 10th Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher.

Sacrificed his whole family to fight against justice. He lend his son's life, mother's life and his own. Today, if there is any reduction in injustice and crime, it's because of him. He was one man military. He said "If you can gain justice with peace, do it. But if you can't, raise your voice and hold the sword."

I've seen many people talking about dirty about Sikhism and swearing to our god. He has told one, there is no heaven and no hell. Whoever dies, he soul will automatically come to god's house. Death is the biggest punishment of all time and visiting god's house is the biggest forgiveness anyone can achieve.

In his name, we all live and achieve the light of love. He drives out all darkness from life and gives eternal happiness. His was the greatest leader of yesterday, still is the greatest leader of today and will be the greatest leader of tomorrow.

An inspiration! Sacrificed himself & his family to save the freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of choosing/practising religion.

Guru Gobind Sing Ji is The greatest Leader and first challenger to mugul kingdom in defending and protecting Hindu religion, He establish Sikh religion who is the Pure soldier of His Army. Guru Gobind Singh sacrificed His whole Family and Himself for the sake of humanitarian, He is The Majesty of all Kings of This world and Ruler of many decades! For more information on Guru Gobind Singh Ji life go and search on Google under Sikh Religion!

He was a great warrior & brought a revolution... He taught mankind that we should fight 4 our rights... He laid his Father's, Mother's & 4 young Sons life 4 fighting against injustice... 4 me he is a true HERO.. Because a true hearted prayer is gone unanswered... 🙏😇

3 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States in its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. Abraham Lincoln was born in Feb. 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky. ...read more.

Great man, but lets get this straight, yes he DID end slavery but he had no control over the South (confederate states) and only carve a path for "creative" bigots to exercise their hatred a different way *cough* "JIM CROW" *cough* and even after he ended slavery he did nothing after that thus ignoring the ever-persistent elephant (Racism) getting only bigger. I just wish people would stop viewing him as a the white saver against the oppressed blacks because if you look at it closely all he said was their shall be no slavery "emancipation proclamation" and did nothing in that matter after that. Again great man but to view him as a savior is just wrong. Slavery was going to end eventually and the WHOLE reason why the civil war happened was because you of slavery and if a different president who fought for ending slavery (there's not a lot but there is a few) who would do the same.

Almost every politician lies daily, because they exist to tell the public what they want to hear, and Trump lies more that he talks, which is saying something, but as far as I can tell Lincoln didn’t lie very much in his honoured and short life, so a shout out to him

I don't know who all these gurus are, so I can not vote for them, although they seem like good people. Abraham lincoln is a great leader because he brought america to the right place. without him, america might still be a slave country

Has no right to be on this list, in the first place. Lincoln, is not a true NATIVE American Indian, because he has European ancestry (an invader who originates from another continent).

4 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). ...read more.

He is a leader still with us. God's only begotten Son, inspired many, without any intention to lead, but to reconcile us with God - who initially planned to wipe us out. He decided to send His son Jesus instead. Jesus was so influential a crowd was rousing up, ready to start a revolution & place him in charge, but upon recieving word of this, Jesus slipped away, as He intended to save our souls & provide us with a means to reconcile with God the Father - not rule. His wise words are like no other, & His teachings contain far more wisdom than anything taught by Buddha (who atheists like to point to), & unlike Buddha, he was a leader in every sense of the word. Not that He cared about numbers, but their free willing loyalty - to the point He even said things to thin the numbers to all but the most willing. He wanted Disciples - not blind followers who go through the motions.

Of course, an atheist or any unbeliever will say anything to discredit Jesus & His followers. Jesus ...more

Jesus Christ is the greatest leader of all times! NO ONE ELSE! Not Ghandi, not Hari Hari Khrishna, not Buddha, not allah (all of and serve and/or worship satan and many others), Only Jesus the King of Kings and Lord of Lord's Lord of and OVER ALL! God the Father, Jesus his Son, and the Holy Spirit are one and they are the greatest leader(s) of all times! If you don't know this Jesus of Nazareth, you need to know him. No matter what you are going through he is the ONLY WAY, THE ONLY TRUTH, THE ONLY LIFE! NONE OF THOSE OF SATAN CULTS OR SECTS CAN BE OF HELP, ONLY JESUS, THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORD'S AND HIS POWERFUL BLOOD AND NAME!

All of history is based on the belief of a higher being, God. I personally grew up learning about God and his son Jesus. Some may say why does forgiveness have to be proven? Because people can't just believe by their ears. They have to have proof. As a higher being, a part of God, Jesus was sent to earth to show his love for his people. It was proof that he forgave us. I agree. The whole world's history is based on love and creation. It founded many of today's religions, civilizations, and ideologies.

What a shameful it is that we are making the list who is best and human race has run to make their leader number 1 this has been the difficulty all over the world that we always thik what I thik is right but these are mens who work for all over the world for good of humanity, this is the difference between us and them, here we can make best use those of leader to whom we don't know we can know about their life and can learn a lot from them this is what this men were always intended to teach us. SO MY BROTHERN MAY LONG LIVE YOUR RELIGION AS MUCH AS OUR, FOREVER.

5 Maharana Pratap Pratap Singh or Pratap Singh was the ruler of Mewar, a region in north-western India in the present day state of Rajasthan.

Maharana Pratap is the tallest of all leaders because he was fighting a cause for the general public. If he could have asked for a easy life he would have got it. But he was a selfless leader who knew with whom he was fighting with, he was a warrior of greatest order. Akbar could not win him in his life despite having many times more strength of the army.

Maharana Pratap was that legend who never surrender against any ruler, He is the person who well what the dignity and honour of the person. He never gave up. On his death even his enemy Akbar also started crying, what else can show how great he was who was very loyal and faithful towarad his kingdom and to the people! Jay Rajputana!

The only person in the history, who never compromised with his soil's freedom! True Legend!

6 Alexander the Great Alexander III of Macedon, commonly known as Alexander the Great, was a King of the Ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and a member of the Argead dynasty.

Shame on all of you who support Gurmeet Ram Rahim as a leader. A pervert and a rapist he is, you compare him to men like Buddha and Bhagat Singh!
By far and wide, Alexander the great established the largest empire of the world by taking a handful of people from Macedonia. By the virtue of leadership, Alexander is an unparalleled leader.

Lol is this indian list of great people -- of course its ALEXANDER THE GREAT OR CAESER. Nelson Mandela good as well and Gandhi actually awesome, there's a lot way "Greater" people as the leaders on the list than those who on the top...

The only one man who head down half of the world. Where he attack win win and only win the winner is his blood. Salute man

Even the battle he nearly died in he won.

Undefeated

Uncompromising

Immortal

By far the best militair leader in world history

7 Buddha Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha, or simply the Buddha, after the title of Buddha, was an ascetic and sage, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.

The great son of India give her recognition in the world. Country of Buddha, the Land of piece spread message of non violence.

He has lived life is one of the greatest example how to live a peacefully.

Teachings of Buddha is ultimate

Just simply thinking of Buddha helps me meditate. The thought of Him is just calming to me.

8 Julius Caesar Gaius Julius Caesar, known by his cognomen Julius Caesar, was a Roman politician and military general who played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire.

Victorious against the odds in the Gallic wars, becomes the first roman to lead an invasion of Britain, disposed a pharaoh, defeats one of the great military strategists in history to win a civil war and become the most powerful man in the Western world, his assassination by a descendant of one of the founders of the republic leads to the death of the republic, and birth of an empire that has left many present influences on the world especially Europe, there's even a month named after him a man that stands amongst gods, Julius Caesar is Nietzsches uberman.

He came, he saw, he conquered...What can I say about this great dude? HE built a great empire, but at the time, he didn't have enough time to really develop rome to its full potential. That was Agustus Caesar.

Julius Caesar influenced the forging of the all-powerful Roman Empire.

He is a cool Roman. He should've defeated the conspirators.

9 George Washington George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Absolutely not. He was a racist scum who once peed in Napoleon's mouth. Imagine a world leader peeing in your mouth! Disgusting as it might sound, he also didn't respect John Adams, HIS FREAKING VICE PRESIDENT, well. He had like 600 or 500 slaves, too.

How can you beat a leader who had the opportunity to rule as a king, and yet choose the life of a humble man? So far I've seen on this list numerous great men of sacrifice, duty, courage, and faith. But Washington embodied all these traits, and instead of sacrificing himself in the war he fought. He choose the hardship of living and building a young nation. Because dying is easy. Living is hard.

He practiced what he preached and risked it all. In the end he was victorious.

He made america what it is he was the leader of the army who wanted liberty,justice, and freedom

10 B. R. Ambedkar Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956), popularly known as Babasaheb or B. R. Ambedkar, was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards Untouchables (Dalits), while also ...read more.

Greatest human being who first taught the basics of humanity, highly intellectual personality, prepared the Constitution which even today after 68 years of Independence has not only guided India towards prosperity but also has its relevance in today's scenario. All those countries who have respected end Their constitution have progressed well. He was the great person in India who fights for low caste persons. He tried his best for equality in caste. But some people who didnot want it they oppose and that poison is till now in my country. I think that people in our society show it that there is not any differences about caste in there mind but they setup this thinking in there mind internally. It is shame for those people who r like this. We should look the thinking, hygiene and status of quality and qualification in a person.

Greatest person who made the change in the India, made India proud by giving one of the finest constitution which make India a great Republic.

A great scholar, leader and revolutionist of all time. He turned the course of 5000 years old social living and behavior of the Indian society for the betterment of every sector of the society.

He is the greatest person who fought during his entire life for the liberation of downtrodden of India all those who are oppressed and depressed and the exploited such as dalits, women, workers, farmers and landless labourers. He helped these sections of Indian society to achieve real independence by providing Indian people the finest Constitution and made India a Republic.

12 Guru Granth Sahib

Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is the Guru of all humanity. Shows the path of real truth and indicates that God is one and he is present everywhere. He has no shape, no colour, no body like humans. But he exists and takes care of all species.

They are our great guru in the world

He was the real hero..

Guru Granth Sahib is the Purest Granth and above every teaching.

13 Guru Nanak Guru Nanak was the founder of Sikhism and the first of the ten Sikh Gurus. His birth is celebrated worldwide as Guru Nanak Gurpurab on Kartik Pooranmashi, the full-moon day in the month of Katak, October–November.

This is the first human being who told us the formation of universe 500 years before ( scientists telling us today but same way as guru nanak)... He told us you r the part of God, we only need a vision to see him. He told us this universe is the body of God.. It is a concious energy compile how it want. He told us everything and everywhere is God. This whole thing is just a play.
( I HATE NOW you GUYS HAVING A RACE TO PROVE WHO IS THE GREATEST LEADER... SHAME ON THAT HUMAN BEING WHO MAKE IT UP)

The guru of the world

Guru Nanak Dev ji was like a lighthouse for the world in those dark times... And his teachings are still like a power house for us...

Part of god on the earth.

14 Winston Churchill Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, and a writer.

Winston Churchill, was a Zionist, a cancerous tumor in human form, racist, eugenics, bigot, extremist, terrorist and pure evil. He killed over 2 million Indian's, in the Bengal Famine of 1943-1945, with a racist mind. Around 6-7 million Indians died in that famine. For his part Churchill proved callously indifferent... He was resolutely opposed to food shipments to Bengal and diverted food to Italy for allied forces... Churchill felt it would do no good -famine or no famine, since Indians "breed like rabbits". Churchill, was racist towards India and all Indian's. Churchill hated the Irish and Palestinian's. Churchill, was also racist towards Native American Indian's, Aborigines and Maori's. Churchill, had terrorist plans to invade Eire/Irish Republic.

All British crimes and atrocities, must never be forgiven and forgotten and also never brushed under the carpet, forever. Only racist, ignorant, intolerant, evil and bigoted native-Briton's, will disagree with my ...more

He was of course, known for his role in WWII but he is a deplorable man on a personal level. Advocated for colonialism, was a racist, and was responsible for the death of million natives of British Raj. I could ONLY commend him for leading Britain in WWII.

One of the greatest leaders of all time!

"We will fight them on the beaches we will fight them in the streets, WE WILL NEVER SURRENDER"

He saved the brits from Hitler and Nazis he was awesome

15 Napoleon Napoléon Bonaparte was a French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the Revolutionary Wars.

Came closer to conquering Europe than any leader in history, including Hitler and the Roman emperors. By the time he invaded Russia most major empires knelt before him. After he was defeated in 1814 he escaped exile and came back for the 100 Days, and convinced the French Army to desert the king in favor of him just because he was so well-loved by the French people.

Sad that most people nowadays only remember him for being short.

How is napoleon number #14 he is napoleon! how can he be outvoted be some clowns for example buddha. We don't even know if he was real and lets be real here if he even was real most of the stories were probably exaggerated unlike napoleon he and his work are as real as internet he was only beaten because everyone taught it was a good idea to just join up together and gang up on him.

His Civil Code was acceleration towards the end of feudalism.

He should be top 1 or 2. Pull a random dude from the streets. 9 times out of 10 they have heard of the name Napoleon. Those other dudes outranking him? Who the hell are they anyway?

20 Shivaji Shivaji Bhonsle, also known as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, was an Indian warrior king and a member of the Bhonsle Maratha clan.

The last great constructive genius and nation-builder that the Hindu race has produced… He was truly an original explorer, the maker of a new road in medieval Indian history with no example of guide before him.

Greatest Maratha Leader.. The true greatest Maratha king... The empire of Maharashtra.. Shiv chhatrapati

Nelson Mandela is the Greatest leader of all time! Forgiving his enemy on release from prison after 27 yrs, encouraging and leading the quest for reconciliation not only in South Africa but all over the world. So it is obvious that it is him that ruled over the greatest empire of all time. He conquered the world without a single shot! Even his enemies bowed to him. His principles cut across all and every kind of boundary.

Great person who lived his life for society...

Nelson Mandela was the great social reformer...

Only truly evil people, who are racist, extremist, ignorant, intolerant, xenophobic, imperialist, anti-immigrant, cancerous, Zionist, warmongering, capitalist, globalist, threatening, support the evil apartheid system and bigoted, who disagree with the fact that Nelson Mandela is a true freedom fighter for his beloved Bafana Bafana/South Africa, hate humanity, should consider comitting suicide or run themselves under a bus.

24 John F.

25 Elizabeth II Elizabeth II is Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. Elizabeth was born in London as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and she was educated privately at home.

This cancerous, reptilian, racist, terrorist, fraudulent and evil woman, has no right to be the satanic mother of 54 nations, (53 of them, looted, pillaged, plundered, exploited etc. , by Great Britain, during the previous millenium - mostly non-white rich and debt-free nations, who are now poor, thanks to their anti-immigrant, adulterous, terrorist, warmongering, greedy, selfish and racist colonial power, Great Britain). Only Anglo-Saxon British people who cannot see the truth and disagree with these comments, are lifelong racists, ignorant, intolerant, narrrowminded, evil and bigoted, and not worthy of being labelled human and also not worthy of their existence on our planet.

This fraudulent, poisonous, rogue, cancerous, racist and evil woman, fully deserves no right to be on this list in the first place. A member of an evil shadow government (Committee of 300), she and the rest of her bloodline/satanic evil, inbred and nefarious family, find war, blood, murder, suffering, death and destruction etc, towards humanity, anywhere in the world extremely amusing (including the murder of Princess Diana).

I love the queen. She should lead
