Alasinga Perumal (1865-1909) was a disciple of Swami Vivekananda. He Played a Pivotal role in Swamiji’s going to the west and also helped materialize many of Swamiji’s ideas regarding starting of Ramakrishna Movement in India.

Hailing from an orthodox background, he was born in Chikkamagalur in Karnataka and later, after many ups and downs in life, Shifted to Madras where he taught in a collage. He met Swamiji in 1892 when the latter visited Madras as a wandering monk. Swamiji addressed many of his letters to Alasinga and had much appreciation for Alasinga’s selfless and pure Character.

Here is the story of an extraordinary individual whose legendry dedication and commitment, and devotion to his Guru are an everlasting source of inspiration and strength.


“One rarely finds a man like our Alasinga in this world-one so unselfish, so hard-working, and devoted to his Guru, and such an obedient disciple is indeed very rare on earth.”
--- Swami Vivekananda
