The Nirguni or sant movement, arising in North India about the middle of the 15th century A.D., combines a devotion to a God without attributes with a rejection of the hierarchical ordering of society into inherited castes. This volume translates and discusses in depth the fascinating work of Nirguni poets including Kabir, Raidas, Guru Nanak, Dadu Dayal, Haridas Niranjani, and many others.
