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]
