Atmananda Swami

Rama Panicker was a great scholar in many subjects like Sanskrit, astrology, philosophy and Ayurveda.  He worked as a Sanskrit teacher in 'Vidhyarthi Chinthamani' Sanskrit school in Tellicherry (former name of Talassery). He met Sree Narayana Guru when Guru was visiting Talassery. Impressed by his knowledge in Sanskrit the Guru invited him to be a teacher at Adwaitha Ashram Sanskrit School. He joined as the Headmaster of Adwaitha Ashram Sanskrit School.

Later he was initiated as a Sanyasin by the Guru and received the name Atmananda. Atmananda Swami was invited by Govitananda Swami to Kancheepuram Ashram.  He visited the Ashram many times and helped Govindananda to improve the Sree Narayana Seva Ashram. He wrote and published many poems about the Guru including the famous ‘Sree Narayana Dharma', which is one of the best books that gives a true insight into the thoughts and philosophies of the Guru. On November 12, 1969 Atmananda Swami attained Samadhi at the age of 100.
