I am not very keen with classifications of people. You can find everywhere tops based on looks or different talents or flaws. Anyone is special in its way and there is no real comparison to be made. But this list might help you find more about some of this people and look for their works, read about them.
Watkins Books has taken the effort to make a list of Spiritual People that are around us. This year they published this list with this three main criteria taken into account:
1) The person has to be alive
2) The person has to have made a unique and spiritual contribution on a global scale
3) The person is frequently googled, appears in Nielsen Data, and is actively talked about throughout the Internet.
It’s not important who is first or third or whatever. All this people are doing something great for the others! So I erased the number leading the names. The names are important, not the number it got on the list.
