Baul is a Sanskrit name they were Vaishnava Tantric with origins in Birbhum, no one knew about Baul until this family recorded Baul songs, took Baul from the villages of Birbhum to India and around the world.
Bauls GAVE SHELTER TO ALL REJECTED PEOPLE FROM ALL COMMUNITIES.
Bauls love all accept all, oneness and peacemakers, today Baul is misused and abused.
Babu Kishan has taught at a multitude of Universities around the world as a paid guest lecturer since the 1970 he is qualified to teach at the University level, he does not do it by donation or free, anybody can do that? This is why Baul has been reduced like a bunch of fools when they should be the most educated in the oral tradition, brilliant and genius not a circus act.
They follow Babu Kishan here to there, and I have listed to what they teach it is wrong. They teach wrong teaching that are not Baul and the logic is not even there to back it up?
Baul is a Sanskrit name they were Vaishnava Tantric with origins in Birbhum, no one knew about Baul until this family recorded Baul songs, took Baul from the villages of Birbhum to India and around the world. The story has been culturally appropriated by others who are trying to create a story, they follow this lineage but make up stories about lineages and they teach and tell wrong stories because they do not know.
To be a Baul you have to be wise and knowledgeable in all Indian Philosophies, and Sanskrit. It is not a dumb ass anything goes, you have to know what you are talking about. Baul poetry should not be watered down and it does matter. One should know who wrote the poetry, and the philosophy behind it.. and Baul Kirtan.
