 How did Ravidas Become a Saint?

As per the prevailing legend about Sant Ravidas, it is said that once, he was playing with his friend. On the following day, Sant Ravidas Ji came to the same place but his friend did not come. In this regard, he decided to search him out but he had no idea that his friend had already died. As soon as he heard this news, he was deeply pained and went to the place where the dead body was lying and whispered that it was not the time to play, not to sleep. On hearing this, his friend got up.  

It is believed that it happened because Sant Ravidas was blessed with supernatural powers from early childhood and people started believing in his powers from the same day.
