Süradāsa was one of the greatest bhakta poets of medieval times. Blind by birth, he was a versatile genius who was like a many faceted gem. The Surasagara, his magnum opus is considered one of the greatest works on devotional literature in Hindi. He was a great poet, a great singer and a great artist. And above all, a great human being. However a fully complete portrait of the poet in colours true to history has not reached us so far.

There are many books on Sûradāsa in which his biographical studies have been done in varied shades and his poetry evaluated form different angles. A careful perusal of all these works shows, however, that a real Süradāsa a Süradāsa portrayed in colours true to history, does not stand before us, and many an intricate problem relating to his life and work has not been taken care of adequately in these works. Hence this monograph.
