India - The Land of Saints

India is rightly known as the land of saints. Its soil is the birthplace of numerous spiritual luminaries who have given India its ‘Indianness’. Indeed it is said in the Hindu scriptures that it is the saints who make a place of pilgrimage sacred. Here you will find more than 200 books on Indian saints and the literature penned by them. Some of the prominent saints who have graced this land with their footprints are:



According to the Matsya Purana, sage Manu was the first man (and the first human) created by God. In the above Purana it was mentioned that Lord Brahma created, using his divine powers, the Goddess Shatrupa (as Saraswati was first called) and out of the union of Brahma and Shatrupa was born Manu.


Manu is also the author of Manusmriti, which means "Manu's laws/rules." Manusmriti is believed to be the word of Brahma, the Hindu creator of the universe. Hinduism holds Manusmriti in high esteem, classifying the work as the authoritative statement on the principles of dharma (the Sanskrit word for "duty" or "law").


What are Hindu saints called?


Hindu saints have often renounced the world, and are variously called Gurus, sadhus, rishis, swamis, and other names. Many people conflate the terms "saint" and "sant", because of their similar meanings.


What do Hindu saints do?


There is no prescribed canonization progression in Hinduism, but over time many persons have reached the status of saints among their followers and among Hindus in general. Hindu saints have often renounced the world, and are variously called Gurus, sadhus, rishis, swamis, and other names.


A guru guides the spiritual progress of their students (known as shishya). Through the guru's spiritual, psychological, and practical insight, instructions are tailored according to what they see is required for the student to learn and advance spiritually.
