Anybody to explain warkari tradition and its relation with nath sect?

- Warkaris is branch evolved from Nath sect. In fact, Dnyaneshwar's elder brother Nivrutti Nath was a desciple of a Nath yogi. Gathering more information on this-Mannoj 09:25, 16 September 2007 (UTC)


For this page.

A photo is needed - Somebody has done this - Mannoj 09:33, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

More info on siblings needed

Info on bhagawata sect needed

The first section says:[edit]

He was a yogi born in a socially marginalized high-caste family.

In the section on childhood, it says that he was from deshastha brahmin family. I think the first section should also say that he was from deshastha brahmin family.Tkul 22:38, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Considering the Universal nature of Wikipedia, First para rightly explains the Kulkarni Family's social status (socially marginalized high-caste family.) Adding the word brahmin there would make it difficult for a reader unfamilier with the word Brahmin. However, that detail is put, as you have mentioned,in the childhood section - Mannoj 09:33, 16 September 2007 (UTC) __________________________________________________________

Haripath[edit]

Can anyone comment on the text at Haripath? If it's in Marathi, it's either archaic or poetic, as I can't do much more than gloss Hindi cognates from it. Are the passages copied there correct for Haripath? - Taxman Talk 05:33, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Request for clarification/expansion[edit]

In this translated portion:

Translation: I will bring great knowledge of Vedas, Upanishads, Shastras and Bhagvadgita from Sanskrit in my mother tongue Marathi. Thus, provide status to common poor people who know Marathi but don’t know Sanskrit. He regarded the upliftment of all sectors of society as very important and stressed that caste should be based on qualities not birth.

is he saying he wants the caste system to continue but be based on different factors, or is he really saying he wants no one barred from access to the Vedas, Upanishads, etc because of their caste, language, etc? (I cannot read the original quote, so that is why I am asking ... the rest of the translation -- his desire for the upliftment of all -- is very clear, but that one part about reconfiguring the caste system seems a bit unclear.)

Also, I wondered if any editor could fill in any details about his desire for Samadhi after he returned from his final pilgrimage. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Iddli (talkcontribs) 20:00, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

The section on sanjeevan samadhi needs to be updated. It is believed that he took the samadhi; however, references may be missing.Tkul (talk)Tkul —Preceding comment was added at 01:57, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

"Gyaneshwar"[edit]

I notice that Gyaneshwar is a redirect here. I was trying to look up a more recent "Sant Gyaneshwar", a guru who was apparently involved in some sort of illegal activities and was ambushed and killed in 2006. Frank Black wrote a song about him, but I don't think he has released it on any official album (it's on the 2007 Live at KEXP compilation). I can't find a lot on line about this topic, but see this February 11, 2006 story from Associated Press. Anyway, I suspect that Gyaneshwar should be a disambiguation rather than a redirect, (or that that this article should have hat text) and that this other person was also notable enough for an article, albeit less notable than the subject of the present article. - Jmabel | Talk 03:43, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

The incident only does not prove his notability. Wikipedia is not news. --Redtigerxyz Talk 09:51, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
The incident, plus the fact that Frank Black wrote a song about it, means that someone is going to want to look it up. I did a bit more looking around. It merited BBC coverage. Someone looking that up and finding this article is definitely going to have a W.T.F moment. I certainly did. - Jmabel | Talk 22:07, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
Need references for the Frank Black thing. BBC coverage is also News. --Redtigerxyz Talk 05:20, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Amrutanubhav[edit]

We need more info on this work. Can anyone post some links/ material on it? -Mayuresh 16:06, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Title and First Section[edit]

"Sant Dnyaneshwar" is almost never referred to as just "Dnyaneshwar". I find it rather odd to have the title and first section refer to this great saint without his title. I would rather have this entire text moved to the "Sant Dnyaneshwar" page and have the searches for "Dnyaneshwar" redirect there, instead of having it the other way round. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kkdeshmukh (talkcontribs) 19:43, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Image[edit]

About the photo: Is different from most available pictures. This picture looks like that of an older man, not someone of age 21 or under Wikwiki (talk) 05:39, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Image2[edit]

About the image shown in the article as Sant Dnyaneshwar: Its not the real picture of sant dnyandev as its showing the age more than 21 year and he never holded 'Chipali's" in his hands. We can better use the traditional picture of Sant Dnyaneshvar maharaj, If link given to me I can send wiki the same. swapniladitya (talk) 10:39, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

  • The image used File:Jnandev.jpg is an encyclopedic image printed by the press of artist Raja Ravi Verma who is known for his mythological art in 1910s. Although you might disagree with some iconographies of the image like chipalis or maybe clothes or dislike the way he looks older than what you perceive him to be, the image is a widely known one and hence can be used. Although, if you prefer a better image of his, you can suggest that if its in public domain. I will be happy to change the image to a better one which matches with more popular and common depictions of Dnyaneshwar. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 10:58, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
