Life and Teachings of Tukaram, written J. Nelson Fraser and J.F. Edwards was initially published in India in 1922. Saint Tukaram (believed born in 1577) was brought up as a farmer near Pune in Maharashtra, India. He is known mainly for his poetry in praise for the aspect of Vishnu, Vithobe and involvement in the Bhakti Movement, a hindu reform movement challenging the caste system and limitations on religious and educational practices established by leading castes. Many translations of Tukaram were done by Mahatma Gandhi in Yerwada Central Jail between 15-10-1930 to 28-10-1930. This book is both a biography and an introduction to Tukaram’s art and teaching.
