Basavanna was an extraordinary visionary from the 12th century India who gave a unique spiritual path to the mankind. Based on the principles of Arivu (true knowledge), Achara (right conduct), and Anubhava (divine experience), this spiritual discipline brought social, religious and economical revolution in the 12th century. Millions of practitioners followed this path leading to the enjoyment of the divine bliss in their lifetime. Along with enriching the individuals, the eternal message of this path has the power to uplift the society even to this day.
This path advocates a holistic approach of Lingangayoga (union with the divine). This comprehensive discipline encompasses bhakti (devotion), jnana (knowledge), and kriye (action) in a well balanced manner. The essence and practices of this spiritual path is recorded in Vachanas , the unique mystic literature penned by Sharanas. Vachanas deal with a wide spectrum of subjects. Adapting the messages of Vachanas will help a person enrich his personal, professional, and spiritual life.
