Ramsnehi Sampradaya was established 260 years ago by Adi Guru Shri Ram Charanji Maharaj in Shahpura (Bhilwara). This historic Ramdwara located in Udaipur's Chandpole area is one of the main Ramdwaras of Shahpura Peeth. The priest of this Ramdwara is known as Bade Sadh.
The Ramdwara was established during the period of Maharana Ari Singh-II and its development took place during the time of Maharana Hamir Singh-II and Maharana Bhim Singh. In Ramdwara, handwritten manuscripts of Shri Anubhav Vani and other Ramsnehi texts and old garlands, Kanthia and blankets are seen. Ramsnehi sect is a nirguna worshiper and due to their nirguna worship method, they are considered close to Ramanandi, Kabir and Ravidas.
The main text of the sampradaya is Shri Anubhav Vani, which contains 28400 verses. In Nirguna Bhakti literature, there is no other such a vast collection. Ramsnehi sect recommends following the middle path and keeping Guru and Govind at the same place. Niranjan Brahm or Ishwar or the Supreme Soul, is immovable, unbroken, formless and has no trace of form and is all-pervasive. The human being is only an effigy of demerits and to attain nirvana from the world-cycle (life and death), keeping away from lust, anger, delusion, greed and other malpractices, following a householder's life, with the policy of non-collection and co-existence with all living beings.
