About the book

Bauls of Bengal pledge to delve deep into the inner recess of life of the community of singers to explore the basic understanding of their Philosophy and sadhana. The Study centres round the continuous appeal for searching the moner manus or Man of the Heart. It is exclusively based on long-term field investigations amongst this community of singers with rich Cultural heritage. Their way of life is highly characterized by many peculiar behaviour-patterns and for these they constitute a specific entity of their own. Unlike other earlier works in this sphere this study claims to be the pioneer because of the fact that it tries to inquire into the Baul way of life through the interpretation of empirical data collected by painstaking field work. Of late, the Bauls have aroused World wide Interest in consequence of their visit to many Countries of the world for the presentation of their tradition-bound songs with the accompaniment of characteristic dance. Written basically in Anthropological perspective with conspicuous inter-disciplinary understanding this book would cater to the need of many Music loving people as well as interested scholars in the Fields of anthropology, sociology, religion, philosophy, Folk culture, Spiritual studies, Ethnomusicology and Ethnic Integration based on the idea of Universal brotherhood. Contents: Preface 1. Introduction 2. Bauls in Traditional Perspective 3. Bauls in Variegated Thinking Patterns 4. Bauls in the Congregations 5. Bauls in Relation to ‘Sufis’ 6. Bauls in Integrational Contrivance 7. Bauls in Continuity and Change Glossary of Technical and Indigenous Terms
