Brahmanand Swami was born in the village of Khan near mount Abu in Rajasthan, on the auspicious day of Vasant Panchmi of Vikram Samvat year 1828. Â He was born in the Barot caste of father Shambhdan and mother Laluba.
Once Ladudan went to the local King palace and there he sang a few poems praising the King and his virtues. Â Seeing the poetic genius of the young Ladudan the King asked Shambhudan Gadhavi to allow Ladudan to be taught Pingal (science of constructing poetry) at the royal expense. Â Thus Ladudanji learnt Pingal and other scriptures and became an erudite in poetry, and other scriptures.
Soon Ladudanji was a well known poet in the royal courts of Dhangadra, Jamnagar and Bhavnagar.1 2 3 4 5
