Born in Rishikesh, Yogi Ram grew up in a traditional Brahmin family. The wealth of Indian traditions was part of his life since he was a young boy. It was at this early age that he already felt a strong urge to delve deeper into the mysteries of nature and life.
Although different saints and Yogi’s crossed his path during his childhood, in high school and at university, the real turning point towards a holistic yogic life took place in his early twenties. While he was building up his music business Ram realized that his ‘modern life ambitions’ were not giving him the quality of life he was looking for. Peace and satisfaction were missing. This turned him back to his traditional roots. A long period of intense yoga sadhana and self-study followed.
Swami Hanuman Giri (Guru ji) is Ram's mentor. Guru ji performed his sadhana back in the forest and high Himalaya for over 35 years. He was and still is completely focused on the science of Self Realization. His presence in the ashram is a tremendous blessing.
