The precise dates of his life are uncertain but it is traditionally held that Eknath lived during the last three-quarters of the sixteenth-century CE. Legend also says that he was born to a Brahmin family at Paithan, that his parents died while he was young and that he was then raised by his grandfather, Bhanudas, a hero of the Varkari sect. Some sources say that Bhanudas was his great-grandfather. It is possible, but not certain, that his guru, Janardan, was a Sufi.
