- Dr Shrimali was married to Bhagavati Devi at the tender age of 12. However, the life of a householder never attracted him and he decided to move on towards spirituality and the realms beyond.

- In his journey, he met many pseudo sanyasis and the real gems as well. From these gurus who led a life in caves of Himalayas, he learned all the ancient Indian sciences.
- After 18 years of soul-searching journeys, he met with his Guru Swami Sachchidanand ji in Siddhashram who ordered him to go back to the grihastha ashrama and lead a life as a householder, much required to spread the knowledge of mantra and tantra and dispel the notions and beliefs attached to them.
- He started publishing Mantra Tantra Yantra Vigyan with the objective of simplifying the knowledge of Vedas and Upanishads for the common audience. He also established the Siddhashram Sadhak Pariwar” to perpetuate the glorious tradition of Guru – Shishya, where the Shishya is initiated into the fold by the Guru through the diksha (consecration) ceremony.
