He later studied and graduated in Yoga Philosophy (Eastern and Western) from Kurukshetra University in Haryana and continued his studies Post Graduation at Punjab University, North India.

Throughout his studies (formal education) he was greatly inspired and motivated by Swami Vinodanand ji, one of his teenage Guru’s who taught and initiated him practically in Basic Yogic Kriyas, Pranayama and Meditation. Having completed his University Education and learning Basic Yogic Kriyas from Swami ji, he began travelling India and Nepal sharing the Ancient Vedic Wisdom of Yoga, Philosophy and Meditation. While in Rishikesh, Swami met HH Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar jr, whose wisdom inspired him to start teaching “Art of Living” courses and programmes.
