Maharshi Mehi was born on 28 April 1885 in a small village of Bihar, Majhua (Khoskhsi Sharanpur), India. From very early age he was a seeker of truth and had an intense thirst for inquiry. His search finally to the feet of his teacher, Baba Devi Sahab, in 1909.

Mehi showed traits of a true yogi right since his childhood. Unlike other kids of his age, the child Mehi, as recounted by his sister Ms. Jhulan Dai, was unusually calm & composed. The child Mehi got the first jolt of his life very early as he lost his mother, Janakwati Devi, when he was barely a kid of four years. His elder sister was very kind to him and she and his father took a very good care of him. He was admitted to the village school, when he turned eight. At this school learning was imparted in the local Kaithi script.

Baba Devi Sahab was the main spiritual Guru of Mehi. However, before he met Baba Devi Sahab, his intense yearning for true emancipation had led him to three other gurus (spiritual teacher).

As directed by his teacher, Mehi spent many years in intense meditation and eventually located at Kuppaghat on the banks of the Ganges near Bhagalpur in the state of Bihar.

Maharshi Mehi Paramhans is revered as a great saint in the tradition of Sant Mat. He made an in-depth study of Vedas, main Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, the Bible, different sutras of Buddhism, the Quran, saint's literature and from this assessed that the essential teaching contained in all of these is one and the same.
