RAVIDAS JAYANTI

Ravi Das, popularly known as Raidas, like Valtniki belonged to a depressed class. He was born on Ravivar (Sunday), in a Harijan family, in a village near Varanasi , and was therefore, named Ravi Das. He was the contemporary of another great saint Kabir.

Ravi Das was not much educated but possessed great insight and divine powers. He performed many miracles. He spent most of his time in meditation, bhajan, kirtan and satsang on the banks of the Ganges . The rest of the time he engaged himself in making shoes.

Shoe-making was his paternal profession. He also composed many beautiful hymns in praise of God. Like Kabir, Ravi Das also did a lot to bring in social change and reformation by his teachings and bhajans. That was a period of corruption, hypocrisy and religious intolerance. In the name of religion many ill-practices were in vogue. Ravi Das did his best to educate the masses by his own example and teachings. He believed in the essential unity and equality of life and in the tenet 'work is also worship' He earned his bread from the sweat of his brow.

On Ravi Das Jayanti, procession bearing his portrait is taken out to the accompaniment of music through the main bazaars and streets of the city and towns. In temples dedicated to Ravi Das, his image is worshipped and prayed. At some places, feasts are also held on this occasion. Ravi Das was a great saint, and he symbolizes social unity and equality. His life and works are a great object lesson in nishkam karma yoga, and mutual brotherhood. In Varanasi special celebrations are being held on Ravi Das Jayanti.
