He capably imparts to his students, the unique state - of – the – art yoga discipline given to mankind by India’s ancient sages, to combine the body, mind and spirit as a unified entity. In the year 1978, a great Himalayan yogi – His Holiness Swami Sachchidananda Saraswati  happened to meet and observe the exceptional qualities embedded in a 5 year old baby-boy ALOK RANJAN. His Holiness was so stunned and fascinated with the child that he decided to impart a rock – solid yoga training to him and took the tender – aged boy with him to the Himalayas. Here, under the personal supervision and tutelage of his spiritual guide and master, Alok Ranjan rapidly blossomed and grew to become a perfect GURU, brilliant and adept in the yogic philosophy and discipline applied to the development of the mind, body and soul. Notably, his holiness never came to this part of the world and he spent his divine moments mostly in the holy caves of Gangotri and Gomukh. He left his material body and merged with the absolute at the ripe age of approximately two hundred years.

After returning to this material world, Alok Ranjan stepped into the realm of modern education and graduated in English literature from Hindu college, University of Delhi. He is well versed in the religious scriptures like Vedas, Puranas, Upanishads and other systems of philosophies like Buddhism, Jainism, Sufism etc. He is drunk deep in the philosophies of orient and occident.
