Giriraj Swami was born Glenn Phillip Teton, the only son of a respected Chicago lawyer who was later appointed judge. While studying at Brandeis University in Boston, he met His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and later accepted formal initiation from him.

Giriraj Swami is currently focusing on one of the main personal instructions he received from Srila Prabhupada—to write. He is the author of Watering the Seed and Many Moons and the editor of Life’s Final Exam: Death and Dying from the Vedic Perspective and is working on several publications.
