Sant Keshavadas was born in the year 1934, on a small village near Mysore. At the time of his birth, a priest had predicted that the child would spread the Bhakti of god throughout the world. At his younger age, he had a vision of Lord VISHNU, and due to that, he had chosen the spiritual path.

Keshavadas and his consort followed his advice sincerely, and travelled to foreign countries and spread the teachings of Sanatana dharma, and established temples. Their teachings were praised by the people in western countries, and due to that, he made frequent visits to foreign countries, in order to spread the holiness of Hinduism among the foreigners. According to him, divinity can be attained only through humanity, and he had done lot of social services at his ashram like providing free food to the poor people, giving clothes, and helping in the marriage of poor girls etc.
