Yogi Shailendra had a deep inclination towards ancient knowledge of Vedas and yoga philosophy since childhood. He got a good environment back at home for spiritual practice as his father had a very spiritual and rational approach towards life. By the age of 21, he studied astrology, numerology, and his normal academic studies.
After completing college, he started at a job, but his mind wandered towards knowing the unknown and it grew to ultimate passion. He took the initiation from Avdhoot Baba Shivananda and started his intense practice and had a wonderful experience in deep meditative state. After that, it was impossible to stay in the clutches of materialistic world, so Shailendra moved to Rishikesh to further enhance his journey and advance his level of sadhana and yoga practice.
