Sainthood is a universal phenomenon. In India, there were many great saints even in the pre-historic age. The composers of the Vedic hymns were ancient Rishis, and those of the Upanisads were the great seers and teachers who had revealed the highest truths. The Indian epics and the Puranas mention about saintliness in abundance. The Bhakti movements and the classic Darsanas (philosophical schools), led by eminent saints appeared in various parts of the country in different ages.

The saints are the holy citizens of the world, who belong to all mankind. Sainthood has no distinction of caste, creed, sex or social status. They belong to one community, irrespective of their individual religion, customs, manners and language. They may be separated physically from each other by time or space, but they are the one and the same spirit. The spiritual unity of all beings is the final achievement of all saintly traditions. In their divine community none is high or low, as they possess the universal culture, civilization and qualities. They believe in the universal gospel of divine love. The saints do the service of God to His creations and manifestations.

The Upanisads tell us that the saint is he who has been liberated from all desires lodged in the heart, he who has shaken off relative good and evil, and he who has become immortal by attaining supreme identity with Brahman.

The Bhagavadgita describes the saints with the following expressions: the saint is he who is steady in wisdom, he who has gone beyond the gunas of the world, he who is a bhakta (devotee), a yogi (having perfect control over the mind), and he who has become Brahma-bhuta (Brahman).
