Swamiji was born on December 19, 1960, and spent his childhood in different parts of India. Unlike other children, he showed an inclination towards spirituality from a very young age. He spent his free time in meditation and in seeking answers about the goal of human life. All the while, he continued excelling in his studies, completing his B.Tech. from the reputed Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi and followed it up with an MBA from the equally reputed Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Kolkata.
His education did not provide the answers to his questions, and his yearning to know the Absolute Truth only grew stronger. Just a few months after joining a big corporate house, Swamiji concluded that it was not the life he sought.
After resigning from his job, he took up the order of Sanyas (monkhood) and set out in the quest for God-realization. He travelled to many places in India and had the opportunity to associate closely with various saints, reading and understanding their philosophies.
