Prabhavisnu Swami was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1950. He first met his future spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, in 1971 in London. Srila Prabhupada inspired his new disciple to follow in his footsteps and dedicate his life to spreading the sankirtana movement of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. In the following years, Prabhavisnu Maharaja served as the temple president of the Bhaktivedanta Manor just outside of London. In 1975 he was called to India by Srila Prabhupada to act as temple president in the Bombay, Juhu Beach centre. From 1975-1979 Prabhavisnu Maharaja helped establish Krsna consciousness centres in India and Bangladesh. Dedicating himself fully to preaching Krishna consciousness worldwide, in 1979 Prabhavisnu Maharaja entered the renounced order of life. He was then appointed the Governing Body Commissioner (G.B.C.) of ISKCON to oversee preaching work in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, Burma and other parts of the world. In 1987 he was requested to be the G.B.C. representative for Australia and New Zealand and to initiate disciples in: Europe, Britain, India, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand.
