Serving Hamsananda Puri in 1999

After the Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism volunteered in the Ramakrishna Mutt, serving Swami Ranganathanandaj, he left to Calcutta where for sometime he served in the Belur Mutt. He traversed the sacred Himalayan pilgrimage towns like Haridwar and Badrinath, even until Nepal and Tibet and then returned back to Calcutta in 1999.

At this time, SPH had begun serving Hamsananda Puri who used to stay in Tel Ghat in Calcutta. SPH would spend time reading Ramakrishna Punthi (Portrait if Sri Ramakrishna) to Hamsananda Puri in the original Bengali language, which He learned just to read Ramakrishna Paramahamsa’s original words.

The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism narrates the days before he attained mahasamadhi and left the body, Hamsananda Puri suddenly initiated SPH with the name “Paramahamsa Nithyananda”. SPH then recalled this same name being told to him when He had the divine darshan of Mahavatar Babaji during His time in Gaurikund. He then realized Mahavatar Babaji had initiated with this name which now Hamsananda Puri was repeating to Him. With this, the Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism received sanyas cloth from Hamsananda Puri, and he was declared as the successor of the Kashi Sarvajnapeetham.
