Swami Virajananda may not be well known, but he was a fascinating and inspiring individual who was the first person to join the monastery after the founding original disciples of Sri Ramakrishna. They were all poor, living in a haunted house, yet they overflowed with spiritual fervor and enthusiasm. 
He freely associated with such great souls as Swamis Brahmananda,  Vivekananda, Turiyananda, Premananda, Saradananda.
Regarding Swami Vivekananda, Swami Virajananda recounts his impressions the first time he saw him:

"His eyes were captivating, just as the American newspapers had said. Light appeared to emanate from his entire body. What a charming figure - combining beauty and power, a nonchalant air and a dazzling personality! My first reactions were love, devotion, and a sense of fear."
