Very little is known about the life of Bastami, whose importance lies in his biographical tradition, since he left no written works. The early biographical reports portray him as a wanderer  but also as the leader of teaching circles.
The name Bastami means "from Bastam".
All of them were ascetics. Bayazid was the son of Tayfur. Not much is known of Bayazid's childhood, but he spent most of his time isolated in his house, and the mosque.

Although he remained in isolation from the material world, he did not isolate himself from the Sufi realm. He welcomed people into his house to discuss Islam. Like his father and uncles, Bayazid led a life of asceticism and renounced all worldly pleasures in order to be one with Allah The Exalted.
Ultimately, this led Bayazid to a state of "self union" which, according to many Sufi orders, is the only state a person could be in order to attain unity with God. Bastami's predecessor Dhul-Nun al-Misri d. CE was a murid "initiate" as well. Bayazid Bastami took this a step further and emphasized the importance of religious ecstasy in Islam, referred to in his words as drunkenness Shukr or wajd , a means of self-annihilation in the Divine Presence of the Creator.
Before him, the Sufi path was mainly based on piety and obedience and he played a major role in placing the concept of divine love at the core of Sufism. When Bayazid died, he was over seventy years old. Before he died, someone asked him his age.
He said: "I am four years old. For seventy years, I was veiled.
I got rid of my veils only four years ago. Bayazid died in CE and is likely buried in Bistam. There is also a shrine in Kirikhan, Turkey in the name of Bayazid Bastami. His ascetic approach to religious studies emphasizes his sole devotion to the almighty.
There is some debate over his exact resting place, but this disagreement demonstrates that the love of humans is limited by envy, unlike the love of the Almighty. Although this may be unlikely, given the fact that Bastami was never known to have visited Bangladesh.
Also, one local legend says that Bastami did visit Chattagong, which might explain the belief of the locals in Chittagong. Nevertheless, Islamic scholars usually attribute the tomb to Bayazid.
Chittagong was a religious city and also a center of Sufism and Muslim merchants in the subcontinent since the 9th century, and it is possible that either Bayazid or his followers visited the port city around the middle of the 9th century.
