A brief bio of Acharya Shri Vidyasagarji is given below : 
His childhood name was ‘Vidyadhar. He was the second of four sons. As a child, he was fond of eating fresh butter which was used to make ghee. He wasn’t a demanding child and accepted what was given to him. Vidyadhar used to visit temples and teach his younger siblings the principles of religion. He was attentive and submissive towards studies. In spare time, he also used to paint.

He took diksha on June 30,1968 in
 Ajmer from Acharya Gyansagar ji, who belonged to the lineage of Acharya Shantisagar.

He was appointed Acarya on Nov 22, 1972, when he was only 26.

His conduct as a Digambara monk has been exemplary. He has given up eating salt, sugar, nuts, milk, yogurt and oil for life. He only eats and drinks one time in a day. He is known for his strict ascetic conduct and his ability to compose verse in Sanskrit, Hindi and Kannada with equal ease.

He has made tremendous contribution to Jain literature in the form of six Sanskrit Shatakas, Champukaavy, Mook-Maatee (epic), ten shatakas, three volumes of poems and 24 volumes of poetic renderings of Jain scriptures. 

Since his diksha in 1968, especially after becoming Acarya in 1972, he has staunchly promoted Jain values and the Jain religion. He is revered by millions of Jains and non-Jains and it is a matter of pride for Bundelkhand that the learned Acarya has spent most of his vihara and caturmasa kala in Bundelkhand.

Acharya Vidyasagar is the most renowned saint in the Digambar Jain community and wields influence beyond the community as well. He has been a source of inspiration to the people for starting institutions for the welfare of living beings at different places. The number of monks (munis) and nuns (āryikas) initiated by him and are directed by him exceeds two hundred (117 Digambar Muni, 172 Aryikas), they stay in more than 60 locations in India during chaturmas, ranging from Gujarat to Jharkhand, and Haryana to Karnataka. This ensures that only a few monks or nuns are staying in a particular place.
