His father Jagadamba Singh was a renowned wrestler of the area and was ambitious of making his son a wrestler and accordingly the boy was named as Bheem after the name of great wrestler and mighty man of Mahabharata BHEEM. His father was his first Guru and Bheem like traits were initiated in him when he was exposed to wrestling in 1965. His father also used to give him some primary lessons of spiritualism through the stories of great epics Shrimadbhagwadgita and Ramcharitmanas.

He continued his school education and was then selected for graduation in the engineering stream in an extremely reputed institution called University of Roorkee.

Here he came in touch with Swami Vigyananada Saraswati Ji of at Yog Niketan Trust, Rishikesh when he came to conduct yoga camps in the university. After observing his devotion Swami Ji agreed to stay in his hostel room, although swami ji was given accommodation in the guest house. This proximity with a noted Guru, laid the foundation of beginning the process of learning in the realm of Yoga. During holidays bheem used to visit Yog Niketan Rishikesh for learning advance steps of yoga from Swami Ji.
