Swami Shri Adgadanand Ji Maharaj came to the recluse of the worldly saint Paramanand Ji at the age of 23 years in November 1955 searching for the truth. The hermitage of Parmanand Ji was at Chitrakoot Anusuiya, Satna, Madhya Pradesh (India) amidst the dense forests infested with wild animals. Living in such inhabitable forest in the absence of any facility, this rightly reflects that he was a great sage.

Shri Paramahans Maharaj Ji was born in Ramkola village of Deoria District of Uttar Pradesh in an ordinary family. His mothers name was Fulmani Devi and fathers name was Shri Jagrup Sharma Ji. When an eminent astrologer saw him as a child he asked, How did you beget such remarkable child? He would either grow up as a king or an accomplished guru!
