Soordas The Blind Bard who Sang about Lord Krishna
Soordas The Blind Bard who Sang about Lord Krishna
Description
Soordas, the blind bard of Brij, occupies a very eminent position in Hindi literature. He is considered the Valmiki of Brij (a dialect of Hindi), not only because he was the first poet to write in that dialect, but also because his works have an epic stature.

Soordas was not only a poet, but also a great composer. His songs became so popular that even during his lifetime, he had become a legend. If Brij is understood today from Rajasthan and Punjab in the West to Assam in the East, the credit goes almost entirely to Soordas' songs. That many of his songs are included even in the Granth Sahab, the holy book of .the Sikhs, is adequate testimony to their popularity.

Though he is credited with the composition of 25 works, perhaps he wrote only seven. Of these, Soar-Sagar has the pride of place, followed by Soor-Saravali and Sahitya Lahari. According to legend, Soar-Sagar consisted of a lakh of songs, though today only a few thousand of these are known and sung.

Soordas was a follower of the Pushti Cult, founded by Vallabhacharya. This cult looked upon Krishna as the supreme incarnation of God and believed that God can be attained only through His grace. Like many other Vaishnavaite cults, the Pushti Cult too held that all those who worship God belong to the same brotherhood, irrespective of their caste.

The affection of Yashoda and the gopis, the cowherd-girls of Brij, for Krishna; the intense love of Radha for Krishna and the dalliance of the latter with the gopis formed the theme of most of his songs.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!

My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
