Bhumi Puja at Sanatan Siddhashram

With the blessings of the Gurus, the Bhumi Puja for the upcoming Gurukul – Sanatan Siddhashram, near Shantiniketan was completed on the morning of 8th June, 2017. The Puja was graced by many great Sadhakas, Goshais and Bauls, artists, beloved friends and loved ones, and people from the nearby villages. Devaki Ma, disciple of Yogi Ramsuratkumar, stepped out of her Ashram for the first time in 25 years to grace this occasion.

The first bricks were installed, first saplings planted and the Bhogarati that took place in the now empty pond, filled the land with resonating energy from the music of so many Bauls singing together. Bahauddin Dagar’s Rudraveena was the first music the land was blessed to receive, and the entire atmosphere rejoiced with the powerful vibrations of prayer and music that will carry this journey of the Gurukul ever onward. Joy Guru.

ECONOMIC TIMES | Early morning last Sunday, visitors to the World Sacred Spirit music festival in Jodhpur who attended the closing programme at Jaswant Thada, an ornate centograph adjoining the majestic Mehrangarh Fort, were in for a treat. A handsome young Rajasthani folk singer, dressed in traditional white kurta-pyjama and donning a brightly coloured turban, played the traditional, bowed string ravanahatha and rendered a soulful song in a local dialect. The golden sunshine of dawn provided the perfect backdrop. A few people listened and some clicked photos, but a diminutive woman stood alone, listening, almost merging into the perfect frame.

She was dressed in a traditional sari, with a tilak on her forehead, her hair long, untied and matted. Her stillness was captivating as she listened to the young man’s song.

Lineage

Parvathy Baul carries the lineage of two great Baul Masters – Sanatan Das Baul and Shashanko Goshai. They were well-known in Bengal for their dedicated practice and nuanced performance.

Sanatan Das Baul spent his life at his ashram in Bankura district and Shashanko Goshai practiced in Murshidabad district, both in West Bengal. Parvathy Baul now upholds the lineage of both traditions and hopes to take it further with the upcoming gurukul, Sanatan Siddhashram.
