      JNANESWAR MAHARAJ OF ALANDI 

At once Chaurangi regained the snapped limbs. Needles to say, people adored and joined his cult. His following thus swelled in size.

Matsyendranath initiated Gorakshanath. When Gorakshanath became very popular through his message, the cult attracted many young and learned men. Gahininath is one among such people who on being initiated began preaching, visiting several places in his desa paryatana. Like the phenomenon of magnetization by induction, some of the followers, on acquiring eminence, and grown to the level of sainthood, initiated the deserving aspirants also. So the sampradaya grew in every direction and brought credit to the founder. The Nath sampradaya drew strength and sustenance from several works authored by Matsyendranath. They are many and authorative also. Matsyendranath has yet another name - Meenanath, perhaps, due to his birth from a fish. Although he was Mahavishnu born to spread bhakti cult, he must have some earthly master. So he took initiation from Jalandaranath. As he spent his whole life in touring and preaching, practically every part of India claimed him. Gahininath initiated several young and learned men to carry on the message to the four corners of the world. Among them Nivrithinath was one, whose inherent qualities and resourcefulness ignited several sparks and lighted the whole Bharat. Saint Jnaneswar got his initiation from his own brother Nivrittinath at Brahmagiri, called by another name of Triyambak then.
