Swamiji was born in an affluent and religious Brahmin family at Hoshiarpur (Punjab) on 19th March, 1919. His father was a noble and pious Civil Engineer widely known for his honest and religious way of life. From the very beginning Swamiji was unattached with the material world and at the tender age of 19, he left his home from Vill. Shahpur near Sargodha (now in Pakistan) with absolute renunciation, in search of God and Real Truth of life. After about one year of visiting various places and seers, he arrived at Kailash Ashram Rishikesh (Haridwar) and met Maha Mandaleshwar Swami Vishnudevanand ‘Giri’ Ji Maharaj which marked the beginning of learning Sanskrit language and study of scriptures and spiritual books under the guidance of his mentor Swami Vishnudevanand ‘Giri’ Ji Maharaj. +more
