During his education in the Calcutta University, he acquired vast knowledge of various subjects, especially Western philosophy and history. His Guru, Ramakrisna Deva had great influence in his early life. His Guru taught him that all living beings were an embodiment of the divine self; therefore, service to God could be rendered by service to mankind.
