Sant Namdev, the Marathi Vaishnava Honored By Sikhs

Sant Namdev was born in a family of tailors to a mother who was devoted to Lord Vithala of Pandharpur who is Shri Krishna standing on a brick. 

Sant Namdev wrote a number of abhangs and his honored to this day by vaishnavas in Maharashtra. However, not many people know that Sant Namdev spend a number of years in Punjab and also wrote in Hindi.
Such was his stature as a saint poet that sixty-one of his hymns are included in the Guru Granth Sahib. 

In contrast to his work in Marathi, which recognise God with form - vitthala, Sant Namdev's poems in Hindi adore god in his nirguna-nirakar form.
