Born in June, 1961, Maharshi arrived at Sree Rama Dasa Ashram at Thiruvananthapuram and met His Holiness Swamy Sathyananda Saraswathy along with his family.

Swamiji was deeply wounded by the organized media polarization and harm done towards Hindu community in general. As an attempt to uplift the community and to expose the organized media suppression of Hindu news, Swamiji eventually started a news paper called Punnyabhoomi. Maharshi worked as the chief organizer of the news paper constantly traveling across the length and breadth of Kerala since 1995. In 2001, Maharshi became the chief of operations for the news paper.
Maharshi had undertaken massive efforts of coordinating people and logistics for Sathakoti Lalitha Sahasranama Archana that was immediately followed by Sahasra Koti Lalitha Sahasranama Archana. Having worked very closely during his entire life time, Maharshi moved to Bangalore to look after the Ayyappa Swami temple near Bangalore at Huskur.
