Guru Ghasidas

Ghasi Das (1756–1850CE[1]) was an advocate of the Satnami sect of Hinduism in the early 19th century. Ghasi Das was a farmer in Girod, Raipur district who preached Satnam to a number of low-caste Indians, particularly the people of Chhattisgarh.[2] Ghasi Das's guruship was carried on by his son, Balakdas, following Ghasi Das' death in 1850.
