Santaji Jagnade Maharaj showed keen interest in bhajans and kirtans. He showed little interest in materialistic life. Soon he became a follower of Sant Tukaram Maharaj. He followed him like a shadow and it is through him that we got to learn much about the Abhangs of Sant Tukaram.

Santaji was the original write of Tukaram Gatha. He carefully noted down all the wise sayings of the great saint.
