Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Sunday, 21 April 2024 is Haridas Niranjani.

Haridas Niranjani (Hindi हरिदास निरंजनी) was an Indian saint poet believed to have lived from the mid-sixteenth to the early seventeenth century.

Hagiographies in Brajbhasha (a literary dialect of Hindi) report that Haridas was a native of Kapadod village near the town of Didwana in modern-day Rajasthan. Some hagiographical sources suggest that he was a dacoit before being converted to the worship of nirguṇ rām by a holy man (sometimes identified as the yogi Gorakhnath). Haridas is recognized as the founder of the Niranjani Sampraday, a bhakti religious community primarily based in central Rajasthan. Most of Haridas's poetic compositions are in the form of hymns (pad) and diptyches (sākhī), but he also composed several longer works in various meters.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:11 UTC on Sunday, 21 April 2024.
