      JNANESWAR MAHARAJ OF ALANDI 

On returning to Alandi, he turned a new leaf. Fortunately one after another, his wife delivered four children who though lived for short period, each left a mark in the world as man of outstanding merits in the world of religion. They had many hurdles before reaching the goal as the orthodox brahmin society of those days excommunicated the family on the ground that they were born to a sanyasi. The social stigma was too much for them to bear at their place. And some inhuman bigots openly suggested to undergo prayaschitta by ending their lives. The children were not allowed to have the customary yagnopavitha ceremony. Everywhere humiliation in its ghastliest form appeared to the pious couple and drove them out of Alandi. And taking them to Prayaga it gave a water burial - Poor couple mingled in the pavana Triveni. Their Jalasamadhi, though left the young children in the mid-sea, the Panduranga Vithal of Pandharpur who was the chief cause of their emergence into the world did not leave them. He was virtually present with them. And invested them with supernatural powers, and as such, each blossomed into a rare flower, whose fragrance thrilled the whole world. Nivrithinath as he was called later after joining the Nath sampradaya was a renowned person who brought immortal fame to the cult by his scholarship. And also inducting into the fold. Jnaneswar, who ultimately became the brightest star through his contribution to the thestic world by his philosophical works. The other two - Sopan and Muktabai died young, but before that they stunned the world with their atomic powers through miracles.
