A maths teacher who became a saṃnyāsin and a proponent of Advaita Vedānta. Born in the Punjab as Gossain Tīrtha Rāma, he had started his religious career as a devotee of Kṛṣṇa; subsequently, he turned to Vedānta, and was inspired to renounce after seeing Vivekānanda. Rāma Tīrtha travelled to Japan and the USA, where he attracted a substantial following. His collected writings have been published in several volumes as In the Woods of God-Realization. A Mission which takes his name is based at an āśram in Uttaranchal.
