He lost his parents at the age of 9, so his grandfather Achyutam who was a well known Astrologer in the court of Tipu Sultan and a reputed jeweler and exporter of spices to various countries, looked after him.

But still he is short of GOD. With his death all his accomplishments disappear. Spiritual discipline: The last discipline enables him to acquire divine qualities, his Soul, bereft of his identification with his body, intellect and mind. The Purusha. Shivapuri Baba implores every man to achieve this, reccomanding the practice of the three Disciplines, simultanousely, not dissociated. In the begining, the first two will be predominant. At the end, the third becomes Predominant.
