Shri Jnanadeva's Bhavartha Dipika: Popularly Known as Jnaneshwari

M R Yardi (Translator) Bhavan's Book University

The Bhavarthadipika of Shri Jnaneshwar, popularly known as Jnaneshwari, is like the Bhagvat-Gita, a superb philosophical, poem. It is a literary gem presented by him to the Marathi language. He lived in the thirteenth century A.D. and took living samadhi at the tender age of twenty-two. As he himself said, "This whole universe is my home, "He vishwa chi majhe ghara'. His message is universal and is relevant even in the present time. The author has made an humble attempt to translate this work in lucid English, so that the English-speaking people will understand his philosophy and the spiritual discipline recommended by him.

In the view of Shri Jnaneshwara, any of the three ways of knowledge, action and devotion, recommended in the Bhagvat-Gita can lead to self-realisation. But more often than not he had laid stress on the disinterested performance of svadharma in a spirit of dedication to God. In the eighteenth chapter he says, 'One should workship God with avtions'. According to him, this svadharma is the performance of one's duty, which has fallen to one's lot as a result of one's natural aptitude and experience. This, however, does not mean that one through improper means. If men perform their duty with dedications as a worship of God, they will strengthen the social fabric and also attain God-realisation.
