    ‘Sant’ are the holy men in Hinduism. Sant is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Sad’ which means truth or reality. Hence the root meaning of Sant is ‘the knower of truth’ or ‘one who has experienced Ultimate Reality’ or ‘to be real/good’. Some other Hindu words for saints can be Guru, Paramhansa, Sadhu, Yogi, Swami, Mahatma, Baba etc. Like other Religions, sainthood in Hinduism is not a position but a pure state of mind.

    Throughout the 5000 year old known Hindu history, there have been many saints. These saints have always guided Hindus in the journey to Godhead or Salvation. To know Dharma, A Guru is necessary. Importance of saints and Gurus in Hinduism cannot be undermined. Hindus are inspired from the stories of Saints. We will provide information about many such Hindu Saints in our website. Some of these saints are Adi Guru Shankaracharya, Sant Sri Ramanajucharya, Sri Madhavacharya, Sri Vyas, Sant Surdas, Goswami Tulsidas, Sant Eknath, Sant Tukaram, Lahiri Mahasaya, Sant Kabir, Sant Meerabai, Baba Lokenath, Swami Vivekanand, Sri Ramkrishna, Swami Dayanand etc. Every Hindu should strive to follow the teachings of these great saints.
