Contents: Introduction.1. The Guru. 2. The cultivation of detachment. 3. Commitment to truth. 4. On Satchidananda and other matters. 5. On knowledge and devotion. 6. Poems on days and numbers. 7. Ragas on the word."Sahaj Prakash: The Brightness of Simplicity adds a new voice to the small number of Indian women devotional poets available in English. "Born in 1725, Sahajo Bai was a disciple of the great Delhi teacher, Charandas. In accordance with her name which suggests "the essence of simplicity", her poetry is marked by a natural style and direct emotional expression. Its major themes are human experience, service of the guru, and the company of the holy ones. As the American scholar Daniel Gold has written: "Sahajo's guru-devotion is legendary". The poetry delicately hints at the complexity of the relationship between the young woman devotee and her powerful Master." No. 21016 281 pp. N° de ref. de la librería 37376

Acerca de


This book is intended to introduce the work of the now relatively unknown Hindi devotional poet Sahajo Bai to readers of Indian literature and those interested in Hinduism through the provision of a contemporary translation of her major work Sahaj Prakash. The original text is also given for comparative purposes. It is hoped that this book will enable the work of this devotional woman poet to be better known and appreciated within India and abroad, and that readers will use the book in many different ways, academic and creative, as seems most appropriate to them.
