Ankush was born into a mixed Dehravasi, Murtipujak, Swetambar Jain and Vaishnav Hindu family. Growing up in India, he studied at Christian schools, where Bible study was part of the curriculum.
In adulthood, he took a keen interest in Buddhist teachings, and meditation practices of Theravada Bhuddhism, in particular. He attended several 10-day silent Vipassana courses under the S. N. Goenka tradition.
After which, he was introduced to the non-dual concepts of Advaita Vendanta, and Satsang with awakened teachers. His favorite teachers include Sri Mooji, Papaji, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Adhyashanti.
Most recently, satsang with Sri Mooji in person, and online has been significantly transformational and continues to be so.
Ramana Maharshi, Mooji-ji, Papaji ki Jai!
