Chhattisgarh is the birthplace of Saints and Mahatmas. 

Among them Satguru Baba Ghasidas ji, the originator of the Satnam religion of Chhattisgarh in the 18th century, is prominent. Born on December 18, 1756, in the village Giraudpuri in the house of father Mahangudas and mother Amrautin.

He used to solve the most challenging problems very easily. Married to Anjori Das, a resident of Sirpur, and Safura, the beautiful, gentle daughter of Satyavati alias Savitri. Safura was an embodiment of compassion, mercy, sacrifice, penance and affection. Four sons of Guru Ghasidas, Amardas ji, Balakdas ji, Agardas ji, Adgadiya Das ji, and a daughter Sahodra were born to him respectively.

At that time there was a treaty between the British and the Marathas. He was greatly disturbed by injustice, tyranny, untouchability, caste discrimination, conservatism, religious superstition and ostentation etc. in the society. Tired of all these circumstances, he went to the forest. He got engrossed in penance and meditation.

When he came back, his wife Safura had passed away. Due to his stubbornness, the villagers pulled his dead body out of the ground. Before the examination, he brought the dead calf back to life. Seeing which people had come to know that Baba has supernatural powers.

To awaken consciousness in the public, he started preaching and promoting Satnam, due to which his respect started increasing gradually. After that people came from far and wide and started becoming his followers. Impressed by his supernatural glory and preaching, people of all religions and castes became followers by adopting Satnam religion.
