Yogi Ji attained his education in Rishikesh. He was a scholar, and a quiet and deep thinker during his student life. At the age of ten he received his first initiation into the path of yoga and meditation from a yoga master. He was very curious by nature, which led him to ask Swami Ji the answers to some of his profound questions. A majority of the time, his query was thoughtful and reflective. He began studying the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads and learnt how to connect with the supreme from Swami Ji. HE ESTABLISHED IDEALISM AS A YOGA STUDENT.
Throughout his life he has met and learnt from many masters and gurus. At the age of twelve he met his Spiritual Master, Hardav Singh Maharaja, who initiated him into the Nirakara Tradition (a tradition of believers of formless and all pervading God). Yogi Ji performed seva with his Guru Ji for several years both in the Rishikesh Ashram and on tours throughout India, assisting with many aspects of program management for crowds up to 20 Lakh.
At sixteen, he returned to the Himalayan mountains for two years, where he had beautiful awakenings whilst on pilgrimage which inspired him to stay on the yogic path. He also met Narayan Datt, from the Udarsingh Panchayati Bara Akhara disciple of a powerful Mouni Baba and Tantric Master who taught Yogi Ji about mantras and the use of mountainous herbs.
In 2010 Swami Shankarananda Giri initiated him into Kriya Yoga. Yogi Ji has also been inspired for many years by the teachings of Swami Sivananda and Paramahamsa Satyananda.
