Sant Namadev was also a companion of Sant Dnyaneshwar.

Namadev used to converse with Lord Vitthal daily and he complained to the Lord about other people making fun of him for his attachment.
Lord Vitthal then asked Namdev to go to Visobakhecher who lived in a nearby village and receive spiritual teachings. Namdev was not ready to leave as it meant he will not be able to visit the temple for two or three days. Lord Vitthal convinced him to meet Visobakhecher.

Man is master of his destiny – Swami Vivekananda

Man is master of his destiny.

Have faith in yourselves, and stand up on that faith and be strong that is what we need.
In this external world, which is full of finite things, it is impossible to see and find the infinite. The infinite must be sought in that alone which is infinite, and the only thing infinite about us is that which is within us our own soul.
The majority of us cannot see beyond a few years, just as some animals cannot see beyond a few steps. Just a littler narrow circle – that is our world. We have not the patience to look beyond, and thus become immoral and wicked. This is our weakness, our powerlessness. Swami Vivekananda
