Hailing from a traditionally scholarly family and born to S Rajagopala Ghanapatigal and Vaalaambal at Mullaivasal in Thanjavur District, Krishnamurthi Sastri started his quest for knowledge at a very early age.
He learnt Krishna Yajur Veda under his father through the age-old tradition of Gurukula and since then there has been no looking back in his illustrious career. His academic excellence in Sanskrit and Hindi has been proved many times in Sanskrit promoting institutions like Kanchi Mutt, TTD, Madras Sanskrit College, University of Madras and Hindi Prachar Sabha. Dr Sastri's career as a Sanskrit Teacher started at Vaideeswara Oriental School in Mettur Dam, Salem District in 1966. After a stint of seven years there, he served as a Lecturer of Vedanta in Madras Sanskrit College for one year and then became the Vice Principal of S V Vidya Kendra, Tirumala, where he served for two years from 1974 to 1976. Then he served as Professor of Vedanta at Madras Sanskrit Colllege between 1976 and 1999 and became its principal serving between 1999 and 2003. At present he is serving as Academic Council Member in Lal Bahadur Sastri Sanskrit Vidyapeet, Delhi; Jt. Secretary, The Sanskrit Academy, Chennai; Member, Research Admission committee, Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha and Expert Committee Member, Sarasvati Mahal Library, Thanjavur. When asked about the titles and honours that he has won so far, he said, 'I have been honoured by a few institutions with some titles but feel shy listing them'. However the list is endless and to name a few, he was honoured with the title Veda Bhashya Ratnam by Kanchi Sankara Mutt, Vedanta Visarada by His holiness Sankaracharya of Sringeri, Veda Sastra Parangata by Samskrita Sahitya Parishad, Trichy, Meemamsa Siromani by University of Madras, Veda Bhashya Vidwan by TTD, Tirumala and Vedabhashya Ratnakara by Jeer Azhagiya singar of Ahobila Mutt. Krishnamurthi Sastri has authored and published many monographs and books like Veda and its relevance in today's life, Samkshepa Dharma Sastram, Yajusha Mantra Ratnakaram, Krishna Yajur Veda (both in Grantha and Devanagari lipi) and a critical edition of Alankara-stava by Vinukonda Venkatarama Deivagna. Dr Sastri's wife Prema Krishnamurthi, who has stood behind her husband supporting all his endeavours, is also a great intellectual.
