Ganga Puri enjoys the priviledge of being born in Haridwar (the gate of Heaven) 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 mother, Narmada 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 the Ganga.

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 in Srinagar. 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 Puri Ashram . The ashram is a retreat center for spiritual research and studies of the yogic art of living.
