*Guru Basavanna (also known as Guru Basavanna or Basaveshwara (1134–1196)) was a philosopher and a social reformer. He fought against the caste system and rituals in Hinduism. He is also called Vishwa Guru and Bhakti-Bhandari. His teachings and preachings go beyond all boundaries and are universal and eternal. He was a great humanitarian. Guru Basavanna advocated a new way of life wherein the divine experience was the center of life giving equal opportunity to all aspirants regardless of the gender, caste, and social status. The cornerstone behind his movement was the firm belief in a universal concept of God. Guru Basavanna has a proponent of monotheistic concept of formless God.[1] [2]
