The Nectar of Self Awareness (Amritanubhava) - Jnaneshvar

Chapter 1 - The Union of Shiva and Shakti

Jnaneshvar (1271-1296 CE) was a revolutionary, a pioneer in the expression of mystical truths in the Marathi language. Prior to him, all such literature had been framed in the classical Sanskrit; and Marathi, the popular language of Maharashtra, had been regarded as unfit for the transmission of sacred knowledge. Jnaneshvar changed all that. And today, the people of Maharashtra honor Jnaneshvar as their greatest poet-saint; millions visit his tomb at Alandi each year, and his songs are still sung daily in temples throughout the land.
