Sant Namdev Ji (29 October, 1270 – 1350) was born in the state of Maharashtra village of Narasi-Bamani, in Satara district (presently called Narsi-Namdev). His father, a calico printer/tailor, was named Damsheti and his mother's name was Gonabai. The spiritual message of Bhagat Namdev emphasized the importance of living the life of a householder (grist jeevan). In the company of Jnanadeva and other saints, he roamed about the country and later came to the Punjab where he is said to have lived for more than twenty years at Ghuman, in Gurdaspur district. He wrote poetry in Marathi, Hindi and Punjabi. His poetry is included in Guru Granth Sahib.
