Acharya Dr. Rama Nath Dwivedi, who
left his earthly abode on January 11, 2014 (Paush
Shukla Ekadashi, an auspicious day as per Indian
calendar) at the age of around 96 years was
a prime source of inspiration for all of us.
It is eternal victory for the sacred one,
from whose hands flows Nectar, who has
patience, who is learned and whose famous
form has no fear of aging and death.
He was born in the second decade of the
twentieth century in village Arati Dube ka
Chhapara (Ojhavalia, Balia, U. P.) as the second
son of father Pandit Anmol Dubey and mother
Paramajyoti Devi. After initial education in a
neighbourhood school at Basarikapur, he moved
along with his elder brother Acharya Dr. Hazari
Prasad Dwivedi to Shantiniketan, where he
studied for about two years in the inspiring
presence of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore.
