Swami Turiyananda

Swami Turiyananda was born in wealthy family, on 3 rd January, 1863 in North Kolkata. His monastical name was Harinath Chattopadhyay.

Hari lost his parents in his childhood when he was so little in age. But his elder brother had taken his responsibility and tried his best for growing him up. He passed his final examination of school but refused to join to college. He decided to devote his all time to meditation and analyzed Sankara’s Advaita Vedanta.

When he reached at the maturity age about 17 years, first time he met Sri Ramakrishna at Dakshineswar. He was influenced by him and started often to meet the master and finely he was regarded as “Yogi” by Master. Hari gave her all possible services as a member of youngster’s team and during the illness of Sri Ramakrishna; he also served him at Cossipore.

When the Master passed away, Hari connected with Baranagar Math and took ordination as Sanyasa assuming the name “Turiyananda”. He left the monastery after three years and passed his all time doing Tapasya at various places. Sometimes he preferred alone or sometimes with his monastic brothers. When Swami Vivekananda went to the West for the next time, he took Swami Turiyananda with him. Swamiji returned from west to India but Turiyananda continued his work in New York and Boston and after in California. However, his health got worse so he left America in June 1902.

When Turiyananda came back to India, he shocked to hear about the death of Swami Vivekananda. Later he devoted his several years in practicing vivid contemplation in Vrindavan, in the various places of Himalaya, Kankhal, Almora , Dehra Dun etc.

Finely, he took root in Varanasi in February 1919. In last few years, cause of having diabetes, he suffered much and then died on 21 July 1922 by repeating Upanishadic Mantras.
