( 6 February 1856 - 23 December 1926 )

Swami Shraddhanand Saraswati was born at Talwan (Jullundur) in 1913 (Vikram Era) corresponding to 1856 A.D. in a well-known and well-to-do khatri family. His father, Shri Nanak Chand, was in the service of the East India Company. Swamiji was originally given the name of 'Brihaspati', but later, he was called Munshi Ram by his father. This name continued to be in vogue till he was initiated into 'Sanyas'. He was youngest in the family. His school education began in Varanasi and ended in Lahore after passing the examination for law . He was married to Shrimati Shiva Devi. His wife died when he was only 35 years old and left behind her two sons and two daughters. Munshi Ram had started law as a Naib Tehsildar but he relinquished this post after a short time. Later, he practised as a lawyer at Phillaur and Jullundur, but gave up this lucrative profession also when a call came from Swami Dayanand Saraswati to serve the Arya Samaj, an appeal that he found irresistible.
