His parent was cloth merchant and they are a follower of Jainism. He grew up with a maternal grandparent until 7 years and then he returned to his parent. Since childhood he was rebellious, but he was a bright student at school. At the age of twenty, he got admission to Hitkarini College, but he had been transferred to DNJ College, Jabalpur because of a dispute with the professor on subjective content. Again, he was expelled from class and barred from attending classes except for the examination.

He started work in a newspaper in Jabalpur part-time and attended public speaking platforms where he narrated the speech. Now people have started showing interest in his speech because of his logical thought and his way of philosophy. He did an MA in philosophy with high marks. Post education he started work at the college as a professor, but he was expelled from his job due to his controversial speech.

Now he moved to Mumbai and he presented Dynamic Meditation in 1970 the same year he introduced his first disciples.
