Sripad BV Muni Maharaja was born in 1973 in the month of kartik in a Gaudiya Vaisnava family in Orissa, India. His parents were high class Vaisnavas. By their mercy from very childhood he had a very deep impression in Krsna consciousness. Their house was non other than a Math where aratis, kirtans, reading puranas and bhagavatam etc went on throughout the year. Many high class Vaisnavas were coming there regularly even without formal invitation. Therefore, from very beginning of his life, Maharaja had the chance to serve these Vaisnavas. Still, at the age of twelve, Srila Prabhupada's Bhagavad-gita (which was translated into Oriya by Srila Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja) attracted him towards the worldwide preaching movement of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. At that time his elder brother, who had already joined ISKCON, instructed him to strictly chant a minimum of 16 rounds per day, and he followed. After a few years, he couldn't continue his life at home anymore. Therefore he renounced home and village and came to the lotus feet of his revered gurudeva Srila Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja in 1991 and accepted Harinam from him. Then he became known as Krishna Prasad Das Brahmachari.

 Srila Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja was very affectionate to Krishna Prasad Das Brahmachari and gave his personal service often. Before his aprakat lila, Srila Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja gave him personal instruction to preach Sriman Mahaprabhu's mission in Orissa and abroad. Also he instructed him to sing Vaisnava songs. By Srila Gour Govinda Maharaja's mercy, he was able to sing very difficult Orissan classical melodies and play instruments without learning from any music school or teacher. After Srila Gour Govinda Maharaja entered aprakat lila, through one of his intimate disciple he directed Maharaja to have the divine association of  Brajarasika Rupanuga Vaisnavacarya His Divine Grace Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja. Very mercifully Srila Gurudeva gave diksa and later sannyasa to him. By his order Maharaja is now looking after Srila Gurudeva's center at Bhubaneswar (Sri Gour Govinda Goudiya Ashram) and preaching His Message all over Orissa and abroad.
