Great scholars who did
research on his Jnaneswari have vociferously declared that there are very few
works that could stand comparison with it, in regard to poetic diction,
selection of similes, delineation of central tenets, presentation of analytical
observations, exposition of his new thoughts, freshness of approach, and finally
sweetness of language. This magnum opus immortalised him more than the miracles
he demonstrated during his life time. It is an unrivalled independent work that
displays his superhuman powers. Tradition says that it was taken down by one
Satchidanada Babu while recited by Jnaneswar during his stay in a Siva temple.
How superb! What versatility!! How can it be otherwise when it was the voice of
Siva that dripped like nectar and turned into characters when transposed! Hence,
its hold on all the theists all over the globe through translations made. There
is no wonder that the Varkari sampradaya extends to it the highest veneration by
making the members carry it on head, whenever they go to places of worship.
