A multi-faceted personality, he is also an author, motivational speaker, philanthropist, and spiritual teacher.

As a child, he became fascinated with nature and would often escape to the jungle near his home and spend hours, sometimes even days, in the wild. He also developed a life-long love for snakes as a result of his childhood experiences. As a youngster, he fell in love with motorcycles and traveled to various parts of the country on his motorcycle. After graduating from college, he went on to become a successful businessman. A spiritual experience at the age of 25 made him rethink his life’s purpose. He eventually realized his true calling and went on to become a yoga teacher. He then opened the ‘Isha Foundation’ to teach yoga. Over a period of time, the foundation became involved in various social and community development activities.
