Shyamdas was born in Connecticut, USA, on February 11, 1953, as Stephen Schaffer. When he was eighteen, he journeyed to India in search of the well-known saint, Neem Karoli Baba. He found Maharajji in Vrindaban and then fell in love with the Vraja area, the site of Radha-Krishna's lilas. Shyamdas then studied with many bhakti yoga teachers in that enchanted place and took bhakti initiation from His Holiness Shri Goswami Prathameshji, one of the most respected descendants of Vallabhacharya. Shyamdas ahs written numerous books about the Path of Grace and has translated devotional material from Braja Bhasa, Hindi, Gujarati, and Sanskrit. He presently divides his time between Vrindavan and the United States, where he teaches, sings and continues to write on the Blessed Path of Devotion.
