Morari Bapu, complete name Moraridas Prabhudas Hariyani was born on 25 September 1946 on auspicious day of Shivratri in village Talgajarda near Mahuva, Gujarat, to Prabhudas Bapu Hariyani and Savitri Ben Hariyani, in a family of six brothers and two sisters. He is born in a family following religious traditions called Vaishnav Bava Sadhu Nimbarka Sampradaya (lineage). He became to be lovingly referred to as "Bapu" (meaning Father or elderly person) by people. His grandfather, Tribhovandasji was a great Ram Bhakta (devotee of Sri Rama) and used to make young Morari memorize five verses of the Ramcharitamanas each day, on his way to school and back. Further, he at young age was also encouraged via letters from his paternal great grand father, Mahamandleshwar Vishnu Giriji Maharaj, who was head of "Kailas Ashram" at Rishikesh, to be proficient in the Bhagavad Gita and the Vedas.
Morari Bapu has started his career as a primary school teacher in nearby village to Talgajarda. He worked there for several years, while also doing Ram Kathas.
