Stories of Indian Saints
Translation of Mahipati’s ‘Bhaktavijaya’ in Marathi By Dr.Justin E Abbott and Pandit Narhar R. Godbole
This book is an English translation of Mahipati’s Marathi text “”Bhakta Vijaya”” which records the legends of Indian saints, irrespective of their difference in caste, community, creed, language and place of origin. What little knowledge we have on the Saints of Maharashtra comes mostly from the two books, Bhakta Vijaya and Bhakta Lilamrita, written by Mahipati (1715 – 1790) who lived in Tharabad, about 35 miles from Ahmadnagar, Maharashtra.””Bhakta Vijaya”” contains soul-stirring stories of several saints including Jayadeva, Tulsidas, Matsyendranath, Gorakhnath, Jnaneshwar, Eknath, Tukaram, Namdev, Janabai, Gora, Kabir, Rohidas, Narsi Mehta, Ramdas, Sena, Mirabai, Bhanudas, et al.
