M. (Mahendra Nath Gupta)

Mahendra Nath was born on Friday, 14 July, 1854, 31st of
Ashadha, 1261 B.Y., on the Naga Panchami day in Shiva
Narayana Das Lane of Shimuliya locality of Calcutta.
Mahendra Nath\u2019s father was Madhusudan Gupta and mother
Swarnamayi Devi. Madhusudan was a bhakta (a pious man)
and Thakur was aware of his bhakti. Mahendra Nath was the
third child of Madhusudan. It is said that Madhusudan got this
son after performing mental worships of Shiva twelve times
one after the other. For this reason, he had a special affection
for this son and he was particularly careful that this child may
not come to any harm. The boy Mahendra was extremely
good -natured and had great love for his parents. Mahendra
could recall many incidents of his early childhood. For
example, he went with his mother to witness the Ratha
festival of Mahesh when he was five. On their return journey
the boat touched the Dakshineswar ghat. When everybody
was busy having darshan of gods and goddesses in the temple,
M. somehow got lost and found himself alone in the Nata
Mandir in front of Bhavatarini shrine. And not finding his
mother there he began to cry. At that moment somebody
seeing him crying consoled and silenced him. Mahendra Nath
used to say that this incident remained always uppermost in
his mind. He would witness with his mental eye the bright
radiance of the newly constructed and dedicated temple. He
who came to console him was probably Thakur himself.

As a boy Mahendra Nath studied in the Hare School. He was a very bright student and always held first or second position in his class. On his way to and from the school there was the shrine of Mother Sheetla of Thanthania. This shrine can now

be seen in front of the College Street Market. On his way to
and from the school he would never forget to stand before the
deity to pay his obeisance. By virtue of intelligence and hard
work he won scholarship and honours in his Entrance, F.A.
and B.A. examinations. In his Entrance examination he won
the second top position. In the F.A. examination though he
missed one of his Mathematics papers, he was placed fifth in
the merit list. In his B.A. he stood third in the year 1874. He
was a favourite student of Prof. Tony in the Presidency
College. While still in the college he was married to Nikunja
Devi, the daughter of Thakur Charan Sen and a cousin sister
of Keshab Sen in 1874. Sri Ramakrishna and the Holy Mother
had great love and affection for Nikunja Devi too. When
Nikunja Devi lost her son, she almost became mad with grief.
At that time, Thakur would bring peace to her mind by
stroking her body with his hand.

Before entering the education line, he served for sometime
with the government and then in a merchant house. But he
could not stick to them. Thakur had already arranged a
different way of life for him. He took up teaching in school
and college. In Rippon, City and Metropolitan colleges, he
taught English, Psychology and Economics. When he started
going to Thakur in 1882, he was the headmaster of the
Shyampukur branch of Vidyasagar\u2019s school.

Rakhal, Purna, Baburam, Vinod, Bankim, Tejachandra,
Kshirode, Narayana and some other intimate devotees of
Thakur were all students of his school. That is why they all
called him Master Mahashay. For the same reason, he became
famous in Sri Ramakrishna\u2019s group of devotees as
\u2018Mahendra,\u2019 \u2018Master,\u2019 or \u2018Master Mahashay\u2019. Thakur also
