Banshidas Babaji ( (IAST: Bānśhidās Bābājī; 1858 - 1944) was a Hindu saint of the Vaishnava community. In childhood he was worldly. Leaving home in his youth, he took refuge in Navadwip Dham and immersed himself in Krishna Bhajan. Sridham spent most of his life in Navadvipa.


Banshidas Babaji appeared in the village of Majitpur in 1859 in the greater Mymensingh district of East Bengal in British India (now Pakundia police station in Kisherganj district of Bangladesh). In Purbashram his name was Bhairab Chandra. He was the first child of poor prisoner Sreesanth Mallabrahma (Varman). His mother, Smt. Sarvasundari, was a devout nun who was devoted to all members of his family in the midst of hundreds of poverty and hardships. Their other two sons were named Kulchandra and Rajchandra and they had four more daughters.According to the children of other ordinary fishing families in Bengal, Bhairab also grew up in extreme poverty. The family lived on as much fish as he could catch every day. Life was extremely difficult and without all sorts of conveniences. There is no question of getting formal education. At a young age, Bhairab had no other job but fishing and selling. This was life. What more can be expected? Bhairab used to spend the whole day in the river with his father and other fishermen. After sunset, he would return home and go to the stable. There he used to listen to the impermanence of inanimate life in the vernacular, Sri Krishna and Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu rlilakatha and Mahatma of Harinam.
