This is a really old painting by the famous Bengali artist 'Nadalal Bose' of Babu Kishan's Grandfather GURU - as you can see Nabani's style was 'Ektara Baya and Nupoor'! All who follow this style have followed Nabani Das Khyapa Baul because he is the creator of this style. :)
Nabani Das Khyapa Baul was a great friend with both artists and with Rabindranath Tagore. WWW.BABUKISHAN.ORG
Nabani Das Khyapa Baul
This lineage of Baul is a living tradition but is now extinct because it is only performance level, drama, song and dance. The essence of Baul is the living part and it does not change. Living tradition does not mean the tradition changes and it is what anybody wants it to be depending on copy and paste and following another, "fake it til you make it'.
In Baul when they talk about Baul being a Living Tradition they are talking about the 'Essence of Baul' which is the Rasa of Baul without which it is not living anymore, it is talking about the Shakti of Baul.
Baul is very simple, Love Humanity Unity! However, because it is extinct, it must be qualified correctly, Baul is used by many watered down and twisted that is why Baul needs to be clarified for the History of Humanity.
Everything is a "Mirror of the Sky" the name Rabindranath Tagore gave Nabani Das Khyapa Baul, The path of Love, The path of the Avadhuta. The path of the RASA Leela Mystics.
The path of RASA Tattva.
Tantric Bhakti Yoga !
Everything is filtered through 3 (tri) 3 Gunas,
3 Lakshmi, Durga, Saraswati
3 Vishnu, Shiva, Brahma
5 kosha's, 5 levels, 5 layers to the most subtle levels, refined and refined into a beautiful Rasa within Bhakti dual (form) in the world and non-dual (no form) out of the world comes, In the World and yet not of the World.
Raga Bhava Rasa, Bauls practice (energy work) like Qi Gong (mystical).
They consider all of Indian Philosophy, Tantra, Vedas Upanishads, Puranas.
Krishna Kali Kirtan
Baul songs are simple in Bengali
Oral Sanskrit Lineage
Baul Philosophy is both Dual (dvaita) and (Advaita) Non-dual.
Baul's follow the 36 Tattva but they also, break it down to 108 Tattva refining the process to a further degree.
Babu Kishan has archived and preserved his one and only lineage of Baul decades ago, it is now extinct. Baul is mere performance now. This is the way with all indegenous peoples. Somehow, the old ways do not work and this has led to poverty, alcoholism, drugs and much suffering. 😥
Babu Kishan is a Vaishnava Tantric Baul but he also spent 12 years as a Monk in the Ramakrishna Mission and Ramakrishna said, he wanted to be born a Baul in his next life, he spoke about Baul many times and said, they are the highest. Masters Level Indian Music and Indian Philosophy. He is an Indian Music Composer, Sanskritist Oral and Classical, has traveled the world since the early 1970's, been there done that for decades.
Nabani Das Khyapa Baul, Legend Legendary, One and Only Baul Avadhuta, the only Baul who initiated Rabindranath Tagore into Baul giving him the name 'Ravi Baul' and Tagore gave Nabani the name "Mirror of the Sky" and title 'Khyapa', the picture below was taken by Rabindranath Tagore. All Bauls follow Nabani's style 'Ektara, Baya & Nupur,' they sing his songs and dance as he danced. He is the last authentic Baul, he left the planet in 1969. Nabani is the first and last Baul Professor of Baul song and dance at Tagore's Vishva Bharati University and he was appointed by Tagores to teach at his University. Tagore tried to keep Nabani by giving him land and a special Banyen Tree to meditate under, however, Nabani was a free bird and have you ever tried to catch a bird? Nabani Das Khyapa Baul is the the Baul who inspired Rabindranath Tagore. To this day in Santiniketan his face is used on many posters, Sri Nabani Das Baul is the symbol of Baul by the people who know. #baultantra #tantra #VaishnavaBaul #Vaishnavavtantra #VaishnavaAghori #aghora #yoga #bhaktyoga #bhaktifest #shaktifest #shaktibhakti #birbhum #shantiniketan Rabindranathtagor #tagore #kirtan #baularchive
