He was born in a middle-class Hindu family at the foothills of the Himalayas on the land of spirituality in Uttrakhand on 17th, February 1974 in Patigaon village of Champavat. His parents aptly named him Jagdish 'the Lord of the world' as they were told by the astrologers that this boy would one day shine.
In his early childhood, Acharyaji was closely attached by his mother named Bhagirathi. She was well cultured, humble and a spiritual lady she used to perform daily ritual like Puja, havan and chanting of Sanskrit Mantras. She has given very good account of herself to impart the best knowledge and moral values. She was not only a mother but also a mentor and a guide of his early childhood. His mother Bhagirathi used to tell many stories of old Lord Krishna and Maa Ganga. One day his mother told him that they are going for Ganga Darshan in Haridwar. The small child was so happy and he was very much excited to see Ganga and land of Indian deities.
However, the day has come to see Ganga with naked eyes; it was truly an exhilarating experience for a small child. He came very close to his mother and cheered loudly “MAA” I have two mothers one is you and other is Maa Ganga. Mother was so happy and said yes my son, Ganga is mother of all Hindus, I may die but she will remain forever with you. The Ganga darshan has left a very deep impact on the heart of child.
However, as we know that nothing is permanent in this world except the change and unfortunately change has come to say goodbye to his mother in the age of 6 years. He felt himself helpless without his mother and the only thing remained in his mind was memories of Ganga Darshan in Haridwar.
The journey was on track through various stages and circumstances to teach the lesion of life. The members of his family noticed that young boy's vision itself was different from the others. During this period an amazing incident took place which was a turning point in his life, very often he began to have spontaneous experiences of Maa Ganga and Lord Krishna. These spontaneous experiences enforced him to leave the family at the age 11 years.
One day the followers of Shrimad Bhagwat and a group of his disciples came to request him to visit Mathura during Srikrishna Janmasthami. Acharyaji could not reject the request of his disciples and visited Mathura. It was a lifetime experience for Acharyaji to know more about lord Krishna and his teachings. The inspirational and influential role of Lord Krishna extended his stay in Mathura. The Character of Lord Krishna made him an enthusiastic seeker to know more about the doctrines of Shrimad Bhagwat.
