. . . Swami Sarvapriyananda . . .

Swami Sarvapriyananda grew up in Bhubhaneshwar in the Indian state of Odisha. From childhood onwards, he was inclined towards spirituality and was inspired by the lives of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda. His family was also devoutly religious. His parents and grandparents were initiated devotees in the Ramakrishna Order tradition.[2] He has stated that his first goal in life was to become a pilot and the second was to find God, with the second goal later becoming his only goal.[2][3] Sarvapriyandanda joined the Ramakrishna Order in 1994 and took his monastic vows in 2004.[4] His family, at first, objected to his decision to become a monk but later accepted his decision. After passing school, he completed his Business Management degree from Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar. After completing his college studies, Swami Sarvapriyananda immediately joined the Ramakrishna Order to become a monk.[5][6] In 2004, he took vows of sannyasa from Swami Ranganathananda. His guru was Swami Bhuteshananda, he took diksha (initiation) from Bhuteshananda before he became a monk, in his student life itself.[7]
