Vishrant was born Vincent William Cooper in 1954 and grew up in challenging circumstances. He came from a dysfunctional family and suffered abuse during his childhood and schooling.
Despite the hardship, Vishrant maintained a rebellious spirit and an awareness of energy from a young age. He became angry and turned to street fighting and petty crime as a teenager.
However, Vishrant believes these difficulties shaped his orientation toward higher consciousness. Eventually, he came to understand that true rebellion meant going beyond the mind and finding one’s real nature.
