His Holiness Vedavyasapriya Swami Maharaja was born in an Audichya Sahasra Brahmin family on 1st August 1944.
Vedavyasapriya Swami worked as a research biochemist in purvasrama both in East Africa and USA. Within a week of arrival in the USA, he had association of the disciples of His Divine Grace, Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada.
Circumstances led Vedavyasapriya Swami to give up mundane research and take full shelter of the Supreme Absolute Truth. Since before his first initiation by His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada in 1977 in New York, Vedavyasapriya Swami has served the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) in various capacities including personal secretary to the GBC, President of ISKCON of Queens, NY, Director of Bharatiya Community Services in New Vrindavan, West Virginia.
After 1987 Vedavyasapriya Swami shifted attention to serving India following the instruction of Srila Prabhupada that every Indian trained in the West must help to serve in India.
Since 1991 Vedavyasapriya Swami Maharaja has been based in Vrindavan, India, and his services have included overseeing the functioning of one asrama in Vrindavan and also the Bharatpur Asrama; and wider services of Regional Secretary in Punjab and Haryana, and as Chairman of North Indian Temples Divisional Council for the seven years following its inception.
