Baul songs in Vernacular Birbhum Bengali and Baul Kirtan in Sanskrit and Bengali!

Baul songs from this lineage, these songs and the tune are from Babu Kishan's lineage and his family. Most Bauls now sing them but have no idea who the author is. 

Nabani Das Khyapa Baul wrote the lyrics and tune of the below songs. This lineage is Gosai or Gasain, Rasaraj Gosai is an Uncle of Nabani's.

This one and only Lineage is oral Sanskrit, yes they could read manuscripts which include all Vaishnava Agama's, all Upanishads, Indian Philosophy which is distilled into simple songs in vernacular Birbhum Bengali.

    4. Kichhu Din Mone Mone ​

    6. Bhalo Kore Porga Schoole

    "Kichchu Din Mone Mone" was officially recorded by my father Purna Das Baul  in the 1960's at India's First Record company, Hindustan Records. 

    Kicchu Din Mone Mone was written by Nabani Das Khyapa Baul and it is part of this Lineage Baul. It is sad that others feel the need to cheat taking this song without respect. 

    If you do not know who the author of this song it, you are absolutely a Nakal Fake Baul and have culturally Appropriated this song from this lineage. Putting a fake name on it is inexcusable. This will be addressed in a big way in the media, enough is enough, this has gone on far too long.

    5. Jemon Beni, written by Rasaraj Gosai -  Jemon Beni, written by Rasaraj Gosai - (Nabani Das Baul's uncle) Rasaraj Gosai was a prominent Sanskrit ORAL Scholar and Baul poet in Bengali history. Never married and the greatest tantric and tantric poet. Music composed by Nabani Das Baul and singing by Purna Das Baul who is the first to record this Baul poetry. I just want to let you know this is not a Bengali folk song, none of these songs are folk songs they are Baul songs Spiritual songs. These songs are a deep meditation and Sadhana and are a discourse with a  deep philosophical meaning.

    These songs have all been recorded many years back at Hindustan Records which was the first official Music Company in India. Purna Das Baul has recorded all and many others. This is how Baul became famous, through first Nabani Das Khyapa Baul, Purna Das Baul and Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul. There are many more songs, however, a separate book will have to include all the music of this lineage. There are thousands of songs.

    Three Indian Bengali Cinema Music Directors, Pankaj Mallick, Timir Baran, Raichand Boral, recorded Purna Das Baul an award winning India Vocalist and the Greatest Baul singer. These music directors respected ‘Nabani Das Khyapa Baul’, they were his friends and well wishers. 

    Approximately twenty times Ghole Malee Ghole Malee was recorded worldwide and eighteen times it was recorded by Babukishan and everytime it was recorded it was a super duper hit. 

    Today these songs are sung by all Bauls without any of them giving credit to the Baul who wrote it ‘Nabani Das Khyapa Baul’ it is interesting because it was ‘Purna Das Bauland this lineage that own these famous songs but yet they sing them and say they are from a different lineage?

    This was never a problem previously but I think now that so many ‘fake Bauls’ and stories are being made up, the hijacking and actor Bauls who claim and follow this lineage but never say the truth. It is time for the truth of Baul to come forward to preserve this tradition before it is lost forever.

    These are not Bengali Folk Songs they are spiritual songs from this family, this lineage. They should be protected in proper context as respect to this lineage.

     Gaudiya Math and Iskcon hijacked ‘Vaishnava Baul Kirtan’ and song and dance distorting this tradition. There is something that people need to understand Chaitanya was a scholar, he was not a poet or Baul, it was Nityananda and his lineage going back thousands of years that were the poets, philosophers and musical, the original Hare Krishna singers and dancers.

The ONE & ONLY "Legendary Baul Women" - Manju Dasi

Manju Dasi Baul, was Babukishan's mother and the very first Baul women to travel outside of India, she traveled outside and inside of India for over 50 years starting in the 1960's. 

Manju Dasi preformed on all the most (prestigious) stages, concert halls and stadiums around the world. She sang in front of at least 4 Presidents of India, top Stars of India and the West, top Musicians, many Ministers in India and hundreds of respected Guru's and Spiritual giants in India and around the world. 

Manju Dasi was not a regular Baul, she was a Baul in the days when people knew who and what was a Baul and she was paid for her work.

 She was a top rated vocalist and musician she taught Baul music to the top. She performed in front of millions of people in India and outside of India. 

In India and around the world you can sing for free, anybody can, even I can go anywhere to sing at different place and dress up as a Baul and today people would believe me because no one has a clue what is real and what is not. I have learned a few songs and can sing and lecture for free, but I will never be a Baul even after 12 years 24/7, it is just impossible even though I am a women, I am not from Baul, I can learn it all but I can never be Manju Dasi or Brajabala Dasi or Radharani Dasi? 

In today's world you must know your worth. Manju and Purna Das Baul were # One, India Vocalists the first to travel oversea's and yes they were Lineage Baul. They knew how to sing Baul songs, they knew who wrote the poetry and they knew that Baul originates in Sanatan Dharma not in Buddhism or Islam. 

Just as Babu Kishan is an accomplished Composer, a creative genius and a Baul Guru, he should not be expected to sing for free because fake Bauls new Baul singers are singing for free, with so much drama and most people do not even know, it is not Baul at all. They say Baul and Baul Master but they are not Baul. They have made up their Lineage, there is not other Baul Lineage except this lineage of Baul. 

There are other Lineages for other groups but not for Baul. The only Lineage of Baul comes from Ekkachakra Birbhum Bengal. They are descendant of Sri Nityananda who was a Avadhuta Baul. 

Not all Bauls in this lineage are Avadhuta's however, Nabani Das Khyapa Baul was, he followed the path of Baul Tantric Avadhuta. This is well known and well recorded. Remember this lineage of Baul and their songs have all been recorded and preserved decades ago. 

Remember what the new Baul singers are singing are songs from this lineage, such as Hridmajahare Rakhbo poetry of 
Nabani Das Khyapa Baul, and Kichhu Din Mone Mone which were already recorded in the 1960's by Hindustan Records singing by Purna Das Baul. A women new Baul singer making up a poets name on Kichhu Din Mone Mone. How can you call yourself a Baul Master? When you don't even know the name or say you are from a lineage but sing the songs of this lineage posting another name to Nabani Das Baul's song?

You get what you invest in. If you want to know real Baul, there is a fee or donation. This family of Baul has fundraised for hundreds of temples, organizations and groups for decades. They have fundraised for others.

Manju should be remembered she was a Baul, the wife of Purna Das Baul. She is the one and only Legendary (Lineage) Baul who took Baul to the world. Her story must be told, a few are tying to copy her and the other Legends of this (one and only Lineage). Authentic Baul singing comes from the soul, it is not drama, tears rolling down you eyes. It takes a lifetime to master Baul, women or not. 

Manju Dasi is legendary, her story is legendary, she is the first and only authentic Women Baul to travel worldwide for more than 50 years she was side by side with her husband the Legendary "Purna Das Baul' along with Babu Kishan.

Manju Das Baul was the first person to record Lalon Fakir songs, she was always interested in preserving Lalon Fakir songs as she was from Bangladesh when it was part of India. 

A LINEAGE Baul Is be brilliant energetic, genius  as they are from the Oral Sanskrit tradition of Vaishnavism in Bengal.
Manju Dasi is from the one and only Lineage of Baul, the roots of Baul, she was best friends with Indira Gandhi and traveled all of India playing on the (most prestigious, biggest stadiums and stages in India in front of millions of people). 

Manji Dasi was a Classically trained Indian singer. If not for her no one would know what Baul is in this world. She started traveling back in the 1960's. 

1970's in Australia

Manju Dasi is the first women Baul to travel outside of India. She is from a Lineage of Women Bauls who were Guru's to other women. Brajabal Dasi, Radharani Dasi, and many others who were Legends in Birbhum Bengal. Manju Dasi has music recorded on the biggest Music Labels in India.

Manju Dasi and Indira Gandhi, they traveled all of India many times and Manju Dasi sang in front of Millions of people for Indira Gandhi, Sanjay and Rajiv Gandhi along with Purna Das Baul and Babu Kishan.. This is history, this is a Legendary Baul Women, her story will be told along with other Legendary Baul Women. They must not be forgotten and replaced with made up stories. This is the only Lineage of Bauls of Bengal. (period) full and final.
