Swami Sarvagatananda (1912 - 2009)

Born in 1912, Swami Sarvagatananda joined Ramakrishna Order in 1935 at Kankhal, India. He was a disciple of Swami Akhandananda, one of the direct disciples of Sri Ramakrishna.
Other than Kankhal, he served Ramakrishna Math Centers at Karachi (now in Pakistan) and Visakhapatnam, India before coming to United States in 1954 to join Swami Akhilananda at the Vedanta Societies at Boston and Providence.He became the head of the centers in Providence and Boston in 1962, and continued in that position until 2001 (Providence) and 2002 (Boston). Even after his formal retirement from active work, he continued to meet with devotees and to guide them. His untiring service to the Vedanta work in Boston and Providence, his unbounded love for devotees and, above all, his sterling spiritual life have been, and will continue to be, a source of inspiration to all.

At the age of 96, he passed away on May 3rd, 2009 at the Ramakrishna Vedanta Society, Boston, MA.
