Das Baul and Dasi this lineage only!
Allen Ginsberg - Babu Kishan is the only Baul who had a many decades friendship with Allen Ginsberg. The first Baul and whom he considered his Baul Guru was Nabani Das Khyapa Baul in 1962 while Baby Babu Kishan was sitting on Nabani's lap.
The Rolling Stones - Purna Das Baul recorded an album called Jai Bangla in 1971 at his place in Nice France, after that Babu Kishan became friends with the Rolling Stones, jamming with them in London and USA. Babu is the only one who had a continued friendship with The Rolling Stones. He picked Mick Jagger up from the airport for the 2004 concert in Mumbai as a friend.

Osho and Baul associated with Babu Kishan and Nabani Das Kyapa Baul only!
Baul Avadhut, this lineage only, Nabani was the last Baul Avadhut, don't even go there, if you hear others saying they are Baul Avadhut's ,please laugh!
Pous Mela - was created by Rabindra Nath Tagore in honour of Nabani Das Khyapa Baul. We have many stories about how the others Baul's were not allowed to do performances because Shanti Dev Ghosh new they were fakes. It was only Babu Kishan who stood up for them, he probably should not have because after the real authentic Bauls were gone they got an in and now their students making up huge stories.
Joy Dev Mela - for hundreds of years only this lineage attending this Mela because they follow the poetry in many songs they created about Joy Dev.. today it really has no authentic Bauls there. Nabani Das Khyapa Baul was the biggest attract then Purna Das Baul who needed police protection because of popularity and because the 'fake it til you make' Baul were jealous and poisoned Purna Das Baul at the Monohar Ashram. The culprits were never charged by were known. Tell all in the new Book.
Vaishnava Tantric Baul
Windcatchers - Baul = Vayu Tula, V is B in Bengali, thus Batula = Baula = Baul, Baul refines everything to simple terms. Note; Baul is a combination of 2 Sanskrit words, not a Urdu name? There is not such thing as Muslim Baul, and Baul is not Aul, Sai, Dervish, Fakir, Shah which are Sufi, Sufi are NOT Baul.
Rasa Lila Mystics - a term Babu Kishan coined based on the Rasa Tattva techniques he learned from Nabani Das Baul.
Baul explanation: Vayu Dharma, Vayu Tula
Ananda Lahari - Nabani named the Khamak the Ananda Lahari, so if you are saying you are from another lineage and use this term, you are using Nabani and this lineage?
Oral Tradition, Oral Sanskrit, Manuscripts, vernacular Birbhum dialect
Ektara/ Gopi Yantra/ Gopi Chand this lineage only!
Tarapith Tara Ma, Baul association was Nabani Das Khyapa Baul others followed?
Poetry of this Lineage archived by Babu Kishan, this list is long and it will grow, we are just watching all the users make up stories, while using the lyrics poetry and tunes of this lineage. Documenting all.
Now acting like they too, but never mentioned before, until it was written on Babukishan.com in the 1990's and his 3 books and pretending they learned it someone else? Babu also, had the first web site on Baul created by Mary Johnson.
1970 to today Babu Kishan has given 100's of lectures all around the world at Universities he was paid for his lectures as an educated Masters Level lecturer. His lectures were not by donation, he is qualified with experience and a Masters level from Calcutta University where they sent him all over India to lecture on Indian Philosophy?
Baul Akhara, not used by others til recently?
There are NOT 20 thousand Baul's in Birbhum and we are not looking for devotee's, Baul does not want devotee's ever, if anything a Baul discourages followers and makes the road so difficult you would run in the other direction? They sing and teach but do not attach, they are Guru's but not the kind of modern Guru who goes around collecting devotee's to become billionaires.
If anything Baul avoids and makes the path crooked and not easily accessible.
We are not saying come join us?
We are here to educate and tell the truth of who and what is Baul.
