Vedanta Desikan, the Vaishnavite saint, lived in the 13thth centuries. He was an apostle of Vaishnavism as St. Paul was of Christianity. Total surrender to God Sara1Jiigati , to attain His grace is a cardinal tenet of Vaishnavism and Vedanta Desikau's songs fully reflect this approach to God. Jana Bai, the Maharashtra saint, lived probably in the 14th century A.
Though a servant-maid and of a low caste, she attained the highest level of spirituality, feeling God's presence everywhere, in and around her. Her songs reflect her childlike devotion to God, and unflinching faith in His benevolence. Sankaradeva, the Assamese Vaishnavite saint, lived in the 15thth centuries A.
He was a multifaceted personality. He was saint, poet, singer, actor, religious teacher and social reformer.
He wrote several works in Sanskrit and Assamese. He can be deemed the Assamese Tulsidas.
Apart from generating a renaissance in Assam, in the fields of religion, music, dance and literature, Sankaradeva made a unique contribution to Assamese social life, by introducing village prayer houses, called Namghars, in villages, where people could meet for singing Kirtans and socialization. He was against all caste distinctions. This great martyr wrote soul-stirring songs, about the transience of the material world and the true bliss that can be attained by remembering, loving and adoring God and chanting His holy name. Bulleh Shah, the Sufi saint, lived in the 17thth centuries.
Though, he was the Ruler Biidshah of a town, was rich and married, he left everything and became a recluse, filled with a passionate love for God, whom he addressed as the Beloved. His songs contain the essence of Advaita-Vedanta, that God is not only omnipotent and omnipresent, He is also immanent in every living being.
