Babaji studied in a local village school. Babaji attended only basic schooling and was a favourite student of the entire faculty. As a young lad, he was a very active student and would engage in service all the time, helping teachers, staff and other students. From cleaning to cooking to serving others, Babaji was always joyful, being a role model for other students.
As a young student, he was also the class leader and would serve with pride. Teachers loved to delegate responsibilities to him, as the work would get done. The school would serve mid-day meal to the students. Many a times when the cook did not show up, Babaji would seize the opportunity and cook food for the students and serve with so much compassion.
