Shri Manik Prabhu Maharaj
Shri Sadguru Manik Prabhu Maharaj was a great saint and yogi who walked the earth in the early nineteenth century to restore love and humanity lurking in the doldrums and to liberate religion from the confines of narrow dogmatism. Regarded as an incarnation of Bhagwan Shri Dattatreya, Shri Prabhu was a philosopher par excellence and a great thinker who lived and breathed his philosophy of SAKALAMATA SIDDHANT – the gospel of love, humanity, and oneness that firmly rests on the Upanishadic principles of ‘ekam sadvipra bahudha vadanti‘, while teaching it to others. A poet-saint that he was, his innumerable compositions in Marathi, Hindi, Urdu, Kannada, and Sanskrit, which, apart from being literary masterpieces in themselves, are divine hymns that proclaim the essential oneness of the ultimate reality, not to mention their inherent musical brilliance. Shri Prabhu attained Sanjivani Maha-Samadhi at Maniknagar in the year 1865. The institution founded by Shri Prabhu in the year 1845 for the propagation of his teachings is today known as Shri Manik Prabhu Samsthan and is among the important spiritual organisations of the country. The Samsthan is presently headed by His Holiness Shri Dnyanraj Manik Prabhu Maharaj, the present Peethadhipati in the illustrious Guru-Parampara.
