About Swamini Vimalananda

Vimalananda (also called Khagen Maharaj) (1872–1908) was one of the monastic disciples of Vivekananda and an early monk of the Ramakrishna Order. He was involved in the publication of Prabuddha BharataBharata
He is also a younger brother of Rama and the son of Kaikeyi. His mother wanted him to be the king of Ayodhya after Dasaratha, thus she forced her husband to put the legal heir to throne, Rama, to exile. Bharat never accepted the throne and waited for his brother to return. He rather placed Rama’s sandals on the throne.
. He was actively involved in running day to day operations of the Advaita Ashrama at Mayavati during the early days of the Ashrama. He also inaugurated the Ramakrishna Math at Ulsoor in Bangalore in 1906.He died in 1908 at the Mayavati Ashrama.
 
Khagendranath Chatterjee was born in a Hindu Brahmin The conventional Hindu caste system divided society into four sects and Brahmin was known as the learned class who gained the knowledge of sacred texts written on Hinduismfamily in 1872. His father, Benimadhav Chatterjee, was an engineer.

108 His cousin Haripada Chatterjee, later Bodhananda, was also a monastic disciple of Vivekananda. He was interested in philosophy and spirituality from an early age and by the time he joined Ripon College, he was the leader of a group actively pursuing a spiritual life.

109 Also in the group was Kalikrishna, later Virajananda, another monastic disciple of Vivekananda and a president of the Belur Math. In 1890 he passed his matriculation examination and earned a scholarship. He continued with his First Arts studies in Ripon College.

110 Khagen was initiated to Ramakrishna's ideals by reading a collection of his teachings by Sureshchandra Dutta and a biography of Ramakrishna by Ram ChandraChandra
The name Chandra originated from Sanskrit, meaning ‘the illustrious one’...
Datta. They visited Kankurgachhi Yogodyan on the occasion of celebrating Ramakrishna's birth festival by Ramchandra Dutta. In Ripon College he came in close contact with Mahendranath Gupta, (called M), the author of Sri Sri Ramakrishna Kathamrita, who was then a professor in the same college.

112 M inspired them to visit the monastic disciples of Ramakrishna in Baranagar Math. In 1892 he went to Jayrambati and met Sarada Devi. He was later initiated by her into spiritual life.

113 He gave up his studies on account of poor health and spent more time in the monastery in the company of the disciples of Sri Ramakrishna.
 
In 1897 he met Vivekananda when the latter returned from the West and became a disciple. In 1898 he was sent to Mayavati to manage the affairs of the Advaita Ashrama. Vimalananda joined Swami Virajananda as one of the workers of the Mayavati Ashrama.

117 Swami Vivekananda was full of praise for Vimalananda's command of English language. 117 He was involved in editing Prabuddha Bharata. Vimalananda became engaged in work as well as spiritual practices. His health which was generally sickly improved in the hilly climate.

118 Swami Vivekananda visited Mayavati in 1901 after the demise of Capt. Sevier. During this period a small shrine was set up by Vimalananda and others for worshiping Sri Ramakrishna with rituals, flowers, incense and other offerings. Swami Vivekananda disapproved of ritualistic worship in Advaita Ashrama which was in his ideal a non dualistic institution. Vimalananda wrote to the Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi seeking her opinion in this matter. However she confirmed that Advaitism was the highest ideal of the Ramakrishna Order, that every member of the order was Advaitin and what Swami Vivekananda did or said in this matter was right. 702 Vimalananda's doubts were thus put to rest.
 
He came to Allahabad together with his brother disciple Swami Swarupananda and gave some lectures on Vedanta. He came back to Mayavati as his health broke down. He went to Chennai to remain in the company of Swami Ramakrishnananda for a few months. He went to Bangalore to help Swami Atmananda (Shukul Maharaj) to help him run the newly established Bangalore Ashrama.

120 In 1906 Swami Swarupananda died. Vimalananda therefore returned to Belur Math and turned down offers to visit Vedanta Societies of New York and San Francisco.

121 In later part of 1906 he returned to Mayavati with Mrs. Sevier. Returning there he got engaged in the editing work of the Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda. In February 1908 he was detected with Tuberculosis which was then incurable.
