As a child, he became an adept in the puja system of worship of the all-pervading divine, because of the loving, fatherly training imparted by Acharya Yogananda Nath ji.
In April 1994, after finishing ninth standard in school, Swamiji started his journey to the Himalayas and reached Uttarkashi. This is where he met his first Acharya Swami Chaitanyananda Saraswati ji Maharaj, with whom he started his study of scriptures. He also received his Sannyasa Deeksha from Swami Chaitanyananda ji in the name of his Guru, Swami Brahmendrananda Tirtha. Swami Chaitanyananda Saraswati ji Maharaj was a direct disciple of Swami Sivananda ji Maharaj of Rishikesh and studied the scriptures directly from the famed Tapovan ji Maharaj.
In 1998, when Swami Vishnu Tirtha ji Maharaj came to stay at Kailash Ashram, Swamiji had the opportunity to study other scriptures as Siddhanta Kaumudi, Nyaya, Tarka, Vaisheshika Darshana, Mimamsa Darshana and other Darshana Sastras.
Swamiji also had the good fortune of studying with other Acharyas – Swami Chitchaitanya Puri who was the disciple of Swami Ganeshananda Puri ji of Sadhana Sadan, Haridwar and Swami Paramananda Bharati of Sringeri Mutt.
Studying with these acharyas, Swamiji mastered a wide range of scriptures and spiritual practices with corresponding insight into allied fields such as Buddhism, psychology and quantum physics. With his minimal formal education, Swamiji has a formidable insight into latest scientific developments.
As a child, Swamiji learnt yoga from his father and grandfather. The reason for his undying love for Yoga – Yoga Darshana and Sankhya Darshana – stems from his studies and personal experiences in the field. The quest for answers for the many knotty questions that arose after the subsequent studies of Yoga Sutra lead him to a great master hidden in a remote place unbeknown to the world at large. The ashram of this peerless master of Yoga, Vashi Yogi Mani Yettan, who always shunned lime light and fame, is situated in Vilayodi, Kerala. This recluse not only taught a special form of pranayama to our Swamiji, but also provided answers to all the hitherto lingering questions about yoga, from the vast repertoire of his experiential and scriptural knowledge, where the answers were beyond the ken of pedantic speakers, authors or their books.
In 2003, at the age of twenty-four, Swamiji took up teaching on his Acharya’s instructions. He taught at the Sivananda Ashram, Ujaili till 2010. Ever since, he has been teaching at the Adi Shankara Brahma Vidya Peeth.
From an early age, Swamiji developed writing as a hobby and since he had studied Sanskrit in school, he could learn to read and write in Sanskrit easily. This led him to author various books, some of which he wrote making use of his teaching notes. He has authored books on Patanjali Yoga Darshana, Yoga Pradipika, Sankhya Karika and others. Swamiji’s vision is to produce books pertaining to our ancient traditions.
Adi Shankara Brahma Vidya Peeth is publishing the complete works of Shankaracharya, titled “Shankara Sārasvata Sarvasvam” in 18 volumes, out of which five volumes are already released. Swamiji has been overseeing the editorial aspect of production of the volumes.
