Jnaneshwar Maharaj valued humility, nonviolence and detachment of worldly pleasures. He believed that having a removed and humble view of one’s life is necessary for spiritual advancement.
Through his writings, it is considered that the Karma yoga doctrine was revived. He believed that one could obtain Self-realization by performing responsibilities, completing actions without the influence of the ego, relinquishing the gain from one’s own actions and submitting one’s actions to God.
Every year, in the Hindu month of Ashadha (June-July), Jnaneshwar’s padukas are carried in a palanquin on a trip from Alandi to Pandharpur, in memory and celebration of his influence on Hindu philosophy.
