Birsa Bhagawan (20th century AD) is considered an avatar of the Sun god, Lord Surya Bhagavan. He was born in a lower class Munda community, in a village in Maharashtra, and he had dedicated his entire life in worshipping Lord Krishna, after he read about the teachings of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. His sect of Munda people began to convert themselves into other religions, and as a result, he began to spread the teachings of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu among his Munda community people.He lived a holy life, and his followers were attracted with his divine beauty and his capability.
Birsa Bhagawan began to dress like Chaitanya and used to sing songs in the Krishna temples of Dwaraka, Vrindavan and Mathura. Birsa Bhagawan was against caste differentiation and he began to treat all classes of people as alike.
People were highly impressed with his soft approach and through his nice discourses on Bhagavatham and Bhagavat Gita. He also relieved the diseases of the people, by praying to Lord Krishna. After living a selfless life for many years, after his death, he has attained the lotus feet of Lord Krishna.

1. Bow before Lord Krishna and worship him whole heartedly.
