Biography

Aum Cara was born as Puneet, on Mar 31st, 1974 in N Delhi, India in a very well-educated family. His father was a maths whiz, his mother was a school teacher.

Aum Cara was a little different from ordinary kids right from the start. He would be lost in his thoughts all day. was quite introverted & shy, speaking very few words, only when needed. He was very interested in sports & geography (maps).

Aum Cara’s spiritual search started at the age of 8 when he saw a spiritual movie of a boy who went on to become a monk in the Himalayas. He told his mom that one day he might become one.

At the age of 14, Aum’s grandma passed away. Aum was the only grandson in the entire family and dearest one to her. His grandma was in her early 90's when she expired. As per the Indian custom in those days, Aum was asked to lit the fire on the pile of wood carrying her dead body at the cremation. It did not take long for the body of 90+ years to burn to ashes. It also did not take long for this event to set Aum on a journey of self-discovery.

Aum searched for a couple of years. He wanted to be different. He didn’t want to do what everybody else was doing. Being born, playing, getting an education, going to school, getting a job, getting married, having kids & then starting the same cycle with them. He wanted to understand the ‘meaning of life’. What we came into this world for? If we were all to die one day, what was the use of doing all this what everyone was doing anyway? Aum read lots of philosophical books. He could be found reading & searching for books that people seldom sought. Aum explored Tolstoy, Gandhi, & various spiritual texts like Gita and books by Vivekananda, etc.

At the age of 16, Aum finally found what he had been looking for. It had been near him physically for the past 4 years, but now the right time had come. Aum came to know that this ‘uncle’ of his, who seemed to be a very wise man and different from all other people he knew, was a hidden spiritual master. Aum started going to this master. In Sept '90, Aum took initiation from this hidden Gem of a spiritual master... a master who he found to be so genuine, charismatic & yet so reluctant..

Aum’s life changed ever since. While other teens his age partied, he was lost in his Guru & the teachings, meditating up to 17 hours a day & also participating in seva (selfless service) of monks & poor people & satsangs with his Guru.

Studying very closely with his Guru for a number of years, Aum was sent to the western world on a mission that was revealed to him only in 2005.

Aum was given the inspiration to spread the message of his masters in the western world - the 'unfiltered' teachings of Om - the Divine.

With his Guru’s blessings, Aum Cara now strives to spread this spiritual message and Nishkaam meditation of Om with as much purity, honesty and love with which it was given to him by enlightened masters....

He is always seeking ‘thirsty students of life'.
