Saints of Maharashtra (Bhavan’s book university) by Savitribai Khanolkar is a short and easy to read book. It has biography of saints of Maharashtra from 13th century to 17th century. It portrays how all the saints yearned for only one thing – Self Realization. All the saints knew that God is one and were beyond any caste, creed or so-called religion of Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Judaism and so on. Their religion was devotion and love for God. They saw God in all, true definition of a saint.
Miracles performed by Sant Tukaram and Sant Ramadasa fill the reader with amazement and respect. Lives of Janardana Swami and his disciple, Eknath portray how to fulfill daily responsibilities of a householder while being in meditation all the time. This is exactly what Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has taught us. Shri Mataji has given us all the tools to attain the stage of Sant Eknath, we just need to do it, that’s all.
