Sant Tukaram was a poet-saint and pioneered the Bhakti movement in Maharashtra. His poems, which are referred to as Abhangas in the local dialect of Marathi, are revered all across India. His 'Keertans', which are essentially spiritual songs are also quite popular. Sant Tukaram was a devotee of Vithoba, an avataar or Lord Vishnu.
