      JNANESWAR MAHARAJ OF ALANDI 

JNANESWAR MAHARAJ AND HIS WORKS

After the death of parents, the four though faced insurmountable social ostracism, they never fell victims to them; on the other hand they turned god ward, who they knew would never let down the pious. There occurred then many awe-inspiring episodes in their life. They demonstrated many miracles that opened the eyes of the die-hard traditionalists. Once, when Changdev a great saint came riding a tiger to see Jnaneswar, Jnaneswar met him midway seated on his wall with brothers making it move by his atmic powers. Several incidents impressed the public with their super natural powers. Alas! all of them did not live together for long, Sopan and Markabai died young. Nivrittinath absorbing himself in the activities of the Sampradaya was going on tours frequently, leaving Jnaneswar immersed in reading and writing philosophical master - pieces. Being a saint of high order and philosopher of immense scholarship, particularly in Advaitic school, he utilised all his potentialities to writing commentary on Bhagavadgita, the song celestial.

He authored many works, but only four of them became classics. Of the four-Jnaneswari, Amritanubhava, Abhangas and Changadeva prasasti, Jnaneswari is universally recognised as the Grandharaj in Marathi literature.
