This chapter discusses three main topics. The first is the lifeworld of Jñanadev as the nourishing soil of his writings. The second is the central direction of his philosophical thought, which was revealed chiefly in the Amritanubhava. The third and final topic discussed is the so-called Warkari Panth, which is a popular movement largely inspired by Jñanadev's work and centered on periodic pilgrimages to the sacred city of Pandharpur.
