Youngest brother of the renowned actor and playwright Girish Chandra Ghosh, practised law at Calcutta High Court. Met the Master for the first time at Girishchandra’s house. Initially used to refer to the Master derisively as the “Rajhansa”. Learning this from Girishchandra (or Atulchandra himself), the Master had remarked, “Why, that is indeed a compliment! The rajhansa is after all the king of swans, and if given a mixture of milk and water, takes in only the milk.” Ashamed, Atulchandra asked the Master by what name he should call him. The Master replied “By whatever name you call (me), you shall have response” (Punthi, p. 480). At Dakshineswar the Master had advised him, “One has to call God with one’s whole heart; if called with all one’s heart He will certainly respond.” Atulchandra, contemptuous at first, soon became a devout follower of the Master, blessed by his sacred company on numerous occasions at Dakshineswar and also at the homes of devotees in Calcutta. He took a munsif friend of his to the Master at Shyampukur on 27.10.1885 (The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, p. 897). He was one of those who received the Master’s grace on 1 January 1886 at Cossipore (Punthi, p. 615). Once when Atulchandra was fanning the Master at Cossipore, alone, he had a vision of Radha and Krishna on the person of the Master. His left side manifested Radha while his right side manifested Krishna. His skill in diagnosis of a disease and ability to determine its prognosis by feeling the pulse of the patient was much appreciated by the Master. On the night of the Master’s mahasamadhi, Atulkrishna had felt the Master’s pulse and warned the others of an imminent crisis (Punthi, p. 628).
