|One of the earliest saints in the bhakti (devotion) tradition whose writings are available to us, Namdev lived in thirteenth-century Maharashtra and was a tailor and calico printer. In his early life, Namdev observed Hindu rituals assiduously and worshipped idols, but eventually he met his Master, who taught him that the true worship must be practiced within oneself. Namdev taught the importance of meditation on Shabd and the uselessness of all rituals and pilgrimages. This volume presents a short section on his life and teachings, as well as translations of many of his poems that sing of the grace of the Master and the bliss of dying while living. "While still living, I have learned to die, I have no fear now of death", he wrote.
