Acharya Jetindraji Nayar was born in Ludhiana, but later migrated to settle in Kolkata. After completing his M.Comm, LLB and C.A., Acharyaji practiced as an independent chartered accountant for over 40 years. His spiritual pursuit started in 1976, and in 1988 being mesmerized by Gurudev's Jnana Yagna, he longed to pursue further studies in Vedanta.

Under his guidance, Acharyaji was Sevak for multiple study classes in different parts of the city. Jetindraji and his wife completed the residential 2 year Vedanta course at Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, Mumbai in 2013, and have been appointed by Param Pujya Guruji to be the resident Acharya in Chinmaya Mission Chicago, Yamunotri.
