by: Sahitya Chintan • 228
Amrutanubhav or Amritanubhav (Marathi: अमृतानुभव) is a composition by the Marathi saint and poet Dnyaneshwar during the 13th century. It is considered to be a milestone in Marathi literature. Shree Mauli, more famous for 'Shree Gyaneshwari' wrote 'Amrutanubhav' (or 'the experience nectar': nectar being the adjective for the 'experience') at the behest of his Sadguru Shree Nivruttinath Maharaj.
Amrutanubhav is composed of two Marathi words Amrut (derived from Amrita which translates as immortal Elixir in Sanskrit) and Anubhav meaning experience. As a result, it literally translates to "The elixir of experience" or even "the experience of elixir" in Sanskrit/ Marathi.
