basava

Pleased to know that Bhojpuri Translation of Basava Vachanamrutha (poems composed by Lord Basaveshwara in Kannada) is recently published by Basava Samithi, Bengaluru. The multilingual translation project was steered under the leadership of late Dr. M.M. Kulburgi. The principal editor of the Bhojpuri version is Prof. dr. B.S. Tiwary (my father).
Lord Basava was a 12th-century Indian philosopher, statesman, Kannada poet, and was the founding saint of the Lingayat-Shaivism sect of Hinduism in Karnataka. Basava staunchly believed in a caste-less society where each individual had equal opportunity to rise up in life. The Website of Basava Samithi from where you can order the book is here
