Bhaktamal, written by Guru Nabha Dass ji in 1585 is a poem in the Braja language which gives short biographies of more than two-hundred Bhaktas. It was composed by Nabhadas, a saint belonging to the tradition of Ramananda. Though considered a hagiography by some, the work is free from miraculous events, and is widely believed to be an unbiased account of Bhaktas across all sectarian paths. In case of many Bhaktas, the Bhaktamal gives the earliest reliable account, and hence is considered an important source for literary and devotional history of northern India. This book is considered an authentic Hindi translation and explanation of Bhakmal.
