Siddhartha Krishna was raised in the family tradition of Yoga. He was educated at the Kailas Ashram Brahma Vidya Pitha, a monastery focusing on the teaching of Vedanta whose name is related to well-known scholars and Masters such as Swami Vivekananda (founder of the Ramakrishna Mission), Swami Ramatirtha (founder of the Ramatirtha Mission), Swami Tapovan (Master of Swami Chinmayananda, founder of the Chinmaya Mission), and Swami Sivananda (founder of the Divine Life Society). Later, he taught courses on Sanskrit grammar and Indian philosophy at the same monastery, and also edited their publications on Vedanta. In his further study he has specialized on Veda and Yoga philosophy as well and has published translations of and commentaries on Sanskrit texts.

Siddhartha also writes two columns in the quarterly magazine Australian Yoga Life and one column in the Yoga Journal China. Currently, he teaches at the Omkarananda Patanjala Yoga Centre in Rishikesh, India, and as a guest instructor abroad.

Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas has produced CDs of some of his philosophical discourses in which he discusses the ancient texts in a way which supports the more universal understanding of the Yogic wisdom and its source, the Veda, in accordance with modern intellectual thought.
