Original Translations from the Marathi
by Anand Mundra
Like Rumi from Persia or Kabir from North India, Jnaneshwar, considered the greatest of the Marathi poet-saints, captures the power and knowledge of his spiritual attainment in a few spare words. His poetry offers an exquisite combination of knowledge of the truth and love for the divine. These poems have been read, recited, and revered by the Marathi-speaking population of central India for nearly 800 years. His poems have not been readily available in English. This book presents original English translations of a selection of Jnaneshwar’s poems, as an introduction for Western readers.
