History of Guru Ghasidas Jayanati

Ghasidas was born on 18 December 1756 in Girodpuri, Chhattisgart, India.

Ghasidas experienced the caste system from an early age, which forged his desire to eliminate social inequity.

Guru Ghasidas established the Satnami community in Chhattisgarh, based on the Satnam (meaning "truth and equality"). The teachings and philosophy are similar to those of Hinduism and Buddhism.
