He joined the Order in 1951 at RK Mission, Karimganj.

His last visit to Shillong was on 2010 when he initiated many aspiring disciples and has imparted initiations in the past years during his visit here. He has hundreds of followers from the city who expressed their shock and condolence at the news of his death on Thursday. Many devotees thronged the RK Mission, Shillong throughout the day on Thursday to pay their last obeisance to the departed soul.
