Narada Muni is the Spiritual Master of Srila Vyasdeva and who was directly initiated by Lord Brahma the originator of the Brahma Sampradaya.
"Narada, who happened to be the son of a maidservant, had no education, nor was he born into a high family. But when his mother was engaged in serving great devotees, Narada also became engaged, and sometimes, in the absence of his mother, he would serve the great devotees himself. Narada personally says, 'Once only, by their permission, I took the remnants of their food, and by so doing all my sins were at once eradicated. Thus being engaged, I became purified in heart, and at that time the very nature of the transcendentalist became attractive to me.' (Bhag 1.5.25)"
