Swami Vivekananda Bengali: Born into an aristocratic Bengali Kayastha family of Calcutta , Vivekananda was inclined towards spirituality.

In his longing to know the Truth leading to the realisation of God, he found the confident response of Ramakrishna Pramahamsa that he had seen God, the only convincing answer.

He accepted Ramakrishna as his guru, who himself was most eager to have Naren by his side, as he was convinced that Naren was the one person who could understand and disseminate his teachings.
