Swami Rama Tirtha
Truth is Your Birth Right. Assert
it and Be Master of Universe. Truth
is “Tattva-Masi” - “That Thou Art” — Rama
Swami Rama Tirtha was a Vedantin of the highest realization. Vedanta according to him is
no dogma or blind faith, but the Reality of realities. It is the realization of our true Self, Sat-
Chid-Anand, the state of All-Being, All Knowledge, All Bliss. Swami Rama was not only a
religious teacher, but was also a fearless social reformer, and an undaunted patriot.

Swami Rama Tirtha (1873-1906)
Swami Rama Tirtha, previously known as Gossain Tirtha Rama, was born in 1873, at
Murariwala, a village in the district of Gujranwala, Punjab, India. His mother passed away
when he was but a few days old and he was brought up by his elder brother, Gossain
As a child, Rama was very fond of listening to recitations from the holy scriptures and
attending Kathas. He often put questions to holy men and even offered explanations. He
was very intelligent and loved solitude.
Rama was barely ten years old when his father got him married. His father left him under
the care of his friend, Bhakta Dhana Rama, a man of great purity and simplicity of life.
Rama regarded him as his Guru, and offered to him his body and soul in deep devotion.
His surrender to his Guru was so complete that he never did anything without first
consulting him. He wrote numerous loving letters to him.
Rama was a brilliant student, especially in mathematics. After completing his degree, he
served for a while as Professor of Mathematics in the Forman Christian College. It was at
this stage that his spiritual life began to blossom. He began to read the Gita and became a
great devotee of Lord Krishna. His intense longing gave him a vision of Sri Krishna. He
used to deliver lectures on Bhakti under the auspices of the Sanatana Dharma Sabha of
Rama Tirtha commenced his spiritual life as a Bhakta of God and then turned to Vedanta,
studying under the inspiration of Sri Madhava Tirtha of the Dwaraka Math.
A great impetus was given to his spiritual life by Swami Vivekananda, whom he saw for the
first time at Lahore. The sight of the great Swami as a Sannyasin kindled in him the
longing to don the ochre robe.
His passion for the vision of the all-pervading Lord began to grow more and more. He
longed and pined for oneness with God. Indifferent to food and clothes, he was always
filled with ecstatic joy. Tears would often flow in a limpid stream down his cheeks. It was
not long before he had the vision he yearned for, and thereafter he lived, moved and had
his being in God.
