Biography

Swami Adbhutananda, born Rakhturam, was a direct monastic disciple of Ramakrishna. He is familiarly known as Latu Maharaj among the followers of Ramakrishna.

Swami Adbhutananda was the first monastic disciple to come to Ramakrishna. While most of Ramakrishna's direct disciples came from the Bengali intelligentsia, Adbhutananda's lack of formal education made him unique among Ramakrishna's direct disciples.

He was a servant boy of a devotee of Ramakrishna, and he later became his monastic disciple. Though unlettered, Adbhutananda was considered as a monk with great spiritual insight by Ramakrishna's followers, and Swami Vivekananda regarded him as "the greatest miracle of Ramakrishna".
