Born in the village of Mandur near Varanasi, Ravidas imbibed the spirit of devotion to God from his parents as well as the holy precincts of Varanasi. The subtle influences, he absorbed in this atmosphere, constituted his education. When he was 18, he became devotee to Lord Ram. Initially, Ravidas could not keep his attention on his profession of shoemaking. Whatever he earned, he would spend in the service of ascetics and those whose life was consecrated to God. For Ravidas, one work is the path to realisation God. "Honest work is my religion. It will always enable me to cross the ocean of the world", he sings. Some events from his life have been choreographed as a dance drama presentation. This is based on Kathak style. Choreographed by Ravi Jain
