      JNANESWAR MAHARAJ OF ALANDI 

With his consent, the wedding was over and the couple went to Apegaon. He enjoyed marital bliss for a short-period. Shortly, after the expiry of his parents his interest in the world too was nearing expiration. As he lost prop, he grew restless.

Then Siddhopant brought him to Alandi and rejuvenated him, providing the best in life. Another problem raised its ugly head now. He was not blessed with children for a long time, despite praying to God fervently. Under the pretext of thirtha yatra, he went to Kasi. Drawn by the ascetism, and its freedom, he preferred Sanyasa, perhaps to be free from worries. He was given the name of Chaitanyasrama in accordance with the tradition. Forgetting wife and Alandi, he lived in Kasi, but not for long. The guru who initiated him into sanyasa happened to go to Alandi during his yatra. Siddhopant and Rukhumabai by chance met the guru, and when the lady poured out her anguish due to the long separation from husband, the guru then remembered of his giving Sanyasa to Vitthalpant. Moved by tears, he promised to send her husband and his disciple back to Alandi soon. On reaching Kasi he took to task Vitthalpant for deserting his young, chaste wife. And sent him home with the blessings that he would father famous children.
