Newasa

Sant Dnyaneshwar / Sant Puyaneshwar / Sant Jnaneshwar (1275-1296) (also known as Jnanadeva) was a 13th century saint-poet born in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra state, West India.

He was a yogi born in a socially outcast high-caste family. He was the first noteworthy proponent of Bhagawat dharma, a sect of bhakti (devotional worship) tradition in Hinduism. Dnyaneshwar composed Bhavartha deepika or Dnyaneshwari to explain sacred knowledge of the holy book Bhagavad Gita to the masses.

Sant Dnyaneshwar wrote Dnyaneshwari in Newasa town of Ahmednagar district. He took sanjeevan Samadhi, a yogic path to salvation by giving up life at the young age of 21.
