Bhakta Haridass was born in a Muslim family at a remote village under Khulna District (now in Bangladesh) on 1450. His parent’s names are not known. About his childhood very little is known. At the age of. eighteen he came to Shantipur in Nadia Dist. (W.B.), the famous for Vaishnava-cult and met the great Vaishanava Acharya Sri Advaita. He was initiated by Sri Advaita and entered his school as a student and studied Sanskrit grammar and philosophical books — the Bhagavad Gita, Sreemad Bhagabatam etc.

Acharya gave him by the new name of Brahma Haridass. He initiated Haridass into Krihna cult — “Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare/Hare Rama. Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.” After diksha Haridass went to a remote forest near Benapole for deep meditation. Here he recited with devotion this Maha-Mantra three lakh times daily.

Then the Muslim Jamindar did not approve of Haridass’s devotion to Vaishnava-cult. He made use of prostitute named Heera and ordered her to pervert this Vaishnav saint by initiating him into the life of lust — wine and women. But strange are the -ways of Providence: the woman who was sent to corrupt Haridass was redeemed herself and saved from committing a great sin by Haridass, who converted her into Vaishnavism and she became Vaishnava sadhika.
