Bir Krishna Goswami spent his childhood in Long Island, New York. As an academically gifted student at North Western University, he began reading Srila Prabhupada’s books. Impressed by Srila Prabhupada's scholarship and saintliness Bir Krishna Swami became a member of the Krishna conscious community in Gainesville, Florida in 1971. Shortly thereafter, he was initiated as Srila Prabhupada's disciple. In 1972 he began travelling throughout the United States distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and lecturing at colleges and universities. This continued until 1974, when Bir Krishna Swami became directly involved in the publication of Srila Prabhupada's books in English and in Spanish. In early 1978 Bir Krishna Swami entered the renounced order of life in Lima, Peru. In 1995 he began to work on the GBC (Governing Body Commission). At present his zone includes Fiji, South-eastern United States, and Slovenia.Visit website
