About Dnyaneshwari

Dnyaneshwari is a commentary on the Bhagavad Gita in Marathi by Saint Dnyaneshwar. It is one of the greatest commentaries on Bhagavad Gita and Saint Dnyaneshwar was only sixteen when he wrote it. Written in the 13th century, Dnyaneshwari brought the Bhagavad Gita to the common man, which until then was the monopoly of Sanskrit scholars. It is written in the verse form. Saint Dnyaneshwar has used numerous similes, day-to-day incidents and examples from nature to convey the meaning of Gita to common man. The commentary is especially noted for its discussion on Kundalini yoga.
