Younger brother of Swami Trigunatitananda, disciple of Holy Mother and one of her most trusted and devoted attendants (1899-1911). Joined the Order in 1900 and named Swami Satyakamananda after receiving sannyasa. Enjoyed the blessed company of Swamiji, Swami Brahmananda and other monastic disciples of the Master. Sent to Mother’s residence at 10/2 Bosepara Lane to assist Krishnalal (later Swami Dhirananda) in nursing Swami Yogananda then critically ill. Holy Mother fondly called him “My Kartik”. Edited the Udbodhan for some time but had to leave the Order in 1911. His reminiscences of Holy Mother were published in a book Sri Ma which gives a wealth of information regarding Holy Mother and provided source material for the first biography of Holy Mother by Brahmachari Akshaychaitanya and all other subsequent biographies including that by Swami Gambhirananda.
