at the bank of the holy river Ganges into a family
of renunciates. His father Baba
Santosh Puri - a sanyassi from childhood,
who practiced with severe yogic austerities on
an island by the Ganga River until he was blessed
with a vision of goddess Ganga - after which his
Devi Puri Ma - a young seeker of Truth, from
Germany arrived to the island to renounce all
heritage, to devote her life to meditation along
After ten years of austerities,
Ganga Puri was born an expected gift of Mother
Ganga. His childhood passed in the company of
holy men and women as his only relatives. Still
his father insisted on the best education possible,
by no means forcing the boy into the spiritual
path. Ganga Puri graduated with a degree in Physics
& Mathematics from the Grahwal University
After the mahasamadhi of his father (Alahabad
Kumbh Mela) a fundamental change of realization
overcame the student of Science and Ganga changed
his life into complete devotion to the Divine
Truth. Meditation and yoga practices became his
main intention, as they are today.
At the Gurukul Kangry University
of Swami Dayananda Saraswati, Ganga Puri successfully
obtained a post-graduate diploma and Master's
Degree in Human Consciousness and Yogic Science.
As a Yog-Acharya (master of yoga), he devotes
his energy to lead yoga courses and Vedic studies
for the aspirants of truth. Besides his studies,
he has been continuously been blessed by the teachings
of traditional Indian gurus and yogis.
Since 2001, he has overtaken the
spiritual heritage of his yogic father and assumed
responsibilities for the maintenance and courses
of the Santosh

for spiritual research and studies of the yogic
art of living.
