Saint Sadhana

Saint Sadhana was a revered saint belonging to the medieval period. He is highly regarded by the Sikhs, since his hymn has been included in the Guru Granth Sahib.

Saint Sadhana was originally a butcher by profession. However, his quest for a spiritual life forced him to renounce his home and lead a life preaching the love of god. He visited most parts of the country and preached about god to the local people. During his life time he composed numerous hymns, out of which only one exists now and is preserved in the Guru Granth Sahib. He believed that a person’s bad deeds can be washed away by the devotion towards the lord.

He breathed his last at Sirhind in Punjab, where his tomb still exists today.
