Happy Indian Republic Day, Music Composed, recorded, Produced by Babu Kishan 1986

If you do not know Indian Music, how on earth can you know 'Baul Music' or even the language if you are not from India. Do you know Bengali?

Honestly how can you know who is real and who is unreal? Over the years I have seen fake this and that posted promoting a fake Baul? 

If you are from USA, Canada, South America, Europe or Russia how can you say a person is authentic just because a random Baul singer tells you so? Even if you come from India how do you know? How would you know?

Baul has been preserved decades ago since the 1960's by Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul, you may not know him, he is 60 and the oldest of his generation of Lineage Baul. Those who say they are this and that, have made up a lineage and acting like they know music are deep sadhaka's are fake. Seriously this has gone on too long. If it looks exotic chances are they are fake and playing a drama to be Maa or Baba?

In Celebration of (2022 Indian Republic Day) 
and to let you know that hundreds of thousands of people from all around the world have been reading this blog since 2009.
Thank you!

You can also, read more about Baul on my (Trishula Das) who is Babu Kishan's wife of 16 years, and the writer of this blog.

Babu Kishan talks and I write, I try to do my best, if has not been easy for me, but I keep listening, researching, documenting and I have read just about every Book on Baul ever written, according to Babu who is a Baul and probably the only scholar in his one and only lineage of Baul, who has preserved Baul since the 1960's to today, he will be 60 this year and is the eldest of his lineage after his father, Purna Das Baul who is 89.

Happy January 26th Republic Day
from Babu Kishan and The Bauls of Birbhum!

#KumarSanu  #KDBabuKishan  #Bollywood  #etimes #enews  #BNetwork   #RareGems #Music  #NewMusic 
 I am adding more of Babu Kishan Music from Indian Cinema (Bollywood) because most people talk but they do not even understand what it is to be a Music Composer, they call themselves Music Composers, or Baul poets then Music Composers but they are self titled not by Music Composers Association and they do not have a body of work.

Babu Kishan is not a regular Baul his Musical talent is extraordinary as a Music Composer since he was 9 years old. 

When he was 11 he was awarded the Youngest Music Composer of Bengal. 

He never talked about himself though, and that has been a problem because not only have people stolen his music and his intellectual property. One by one it will be presented. Yes, Baul is loving, and many people fake it, fake smiles acting all innocent, Come and join us, donate to us so we can preserve Baul, garbage, Baul has already been preserved by Babu Kishan decades ago?

 They have stolen his pioneering work on Baul taken his name off and use his stories about Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsberg in book after book. 
Making random associations about Baul is associated with Bob Dylan and Ginsberg when it was only Babu Kishan after a picture of his father and Uncle Laxshman was taken in 1967.

 It was only Babu Kishan who had a many decades friendship with both of them and many others including George Harrison. 

Not any other random Bauls. But yet you will see books and newspaper articles even new Baul recruiters not even from Bengal will name drop Babu Kishan's stories but take his name off?? 

So tell me why in a book by a western Baul did she write that Baul is associated with Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg ect, but right on the next page a picture of a Baul who is not associated with the story. 

I have documented all for our book. This has to stop the stealing, cherry picking and lies that new age Bauls who are collecting people, they are using Baul to beome Maa..

Babu Kishan's Hanuman Chalisa that he composed and recorded, the first Hanuman Chalisa ever recorded, is the most listened to Devotional Song ever with 2 billion listens. Another record company now has the song with 15 million hits?
Yet, Babu Kishan's name is not there??

Gushan Kumar is not a singer, he is lip syncing, he is acting. 
This is Babu Kishan's Music the most ever listened to in Indian History. 

Yes, true the 2 Billion but this is Babu Kishan music, he composed and recorded this not GuSHAN Kumar?? 
2 Billion times, and 15 million sold to another company.
Interesting, no one knows the real story behind that Hanuman Chalisa, it was Produced, Music Composed by Babu Kishan, it has nothing to do with T-Series founder, the music was stolen out of Babu Kishan studio in Juhu and sold to T-Series and then they sold it the company that has it now.

Hari Om Sharam was Babu's friend so was Gushan Kumar as a matter of fact Babu is one of the people who identified his body when he was murdered at the Laxshmi temple in Bombay, he worked for T-Series and directed with Gushan Kumar as a composer advisor at that time. 

This is Babu Kishan Music, he composed, paid for, arranged, recorded with his own money. He recorded it in the 1980's, he could not sell it to any of the record companies back then, it was stolen, now look at what a success. Court case pending because his name was taken off and he has never received a penny or rupee for his own Music, the first ever Hanuman Chalisa recorded and Hari Om Sharam died without any compensation either?
It was stolen from his Music studio in Juhu Bombay.

Babu Kishan is still #77 out of 80 Music Composers in India from the 1980's.

​Back in the day you had to pass an exam be signed by Legends and be Recommended by Legends! You are not just a Music Composer by saying you are a Music Composer. To be a Music Composer is the highest level in Music beyond PHD and you must be very successful and have many successful compositions over many years.

Babu Kishan was Signed by Legendary Indian Music Legends.

1. #Ravindra Jain 

Babu Kishan is the only person Ravindra Jain allowed to compose music for him personally. Ravindra Jain was a Gem of Indian Cinema, a Sanskrit Pandit, he was the Ramayana TV series Music Director. All the top Loved him.
2. #Sonik Omi 
Legendary names in Indian Cinema  and
Indian Music Industry. 

Today everybody is listed as a Music Director,
there are over 10,000 names today,
back then it was not so easy.  

Back in the day you actually had to be a accomplished qualified 'Music Composer' with a successful body of work. Master Music Composers were educated in Music to the highest level. To even qualify you had to pass an exam.

You had to prove yourself to the biggest 'Music Directors in India' and they had to refer you. You had to be an accomplished Music Composer not just a Music Composer by calling yourself a music composer. It was very difficult there is no way you could say I am a Music Composer and pay a fee or a bribe, the ethics and standards were high. 

Babu Kishan has a Masters (MA) in Indian Music
from Calcutta University. He had been composed for decades before he was accepted as a Music Composer.

Babu Kishan was referred by: 

1. #RD Burman 
Babu Kishan was RD Burman's Assistant & Friend for 13 years in Bombay, and many years before in Calcutta. SD Burman his  RC Burman's father was a huge fan of Babu's Grandfather Nabani Das Khyapa Baul.
2. #Bappi Lahiri 
  4. #Naushad Ali ! ​
A Classic and Classical ​Indian Cinema/Bollywood Music Composer (Pandit)
These are not Fan Photo's, these are photos of people who Babu Kishan actually worked with over a long period (decades) in Calcutta and Bombay.

Today anybody can have a photo with anybody and then make up stories. Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu has lived it, making movies, selling movies and Indian Music for decades in a very personal way with all in Indian Cinema/ Indian Music/ and the business involved in all.
Indians first Performing Rights Association that Babu Kishan was part of the start up: C stands for Composer but he is also, an author of 3 books and will have his B for Books on his update.
​He is author of thousands of lyrics and poetry.
1994-1996  Time Audio Video – ABCL Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd -  
​Babu Kishan was the Quality Assurance Manager Film & Music Production/Marketing,
​and Event Management. Film, and Music Promotion.
From a Young Age he recorded, produced, composed music, Lyrics and marketing all of his Dad's Super Duper Hit Baul Music and that is how anybody even knows about Baul Music, they all sing these songs, many of them are Babu Kishan's own lyrics and nobody knows this, they sing Babu Kishan's lyrics and they claim them as their own? Some has the audacity to say Baul Masters??? do not care who wrote the poetry, who gave the tune, yet you collect donations in the name of Baul?? This is a sin against Baul and Babu Kishan, the lies and wrong teachings are not only a cultural appropriation they are leading to a genocide of this lineage. Making up lineage is wrong.

Baul and Indian Music has been Babu Kishan's life work. Soon I will be posting these thefts and who the culprits are of stealing Babu Kishan's life work and intellectual property thefts.
Some of the albums of Babu Kishan's Life Work.
No one would even know about Baul without his pioneering template of promoting Baul around the world.
The first Hanuman Chalisa Album recorded, music composed and produced
​by Babu Kishan
Stolen from his studio, and sold to Tips,
15 Million views.
This is Babu Kishan Music!!
This whole album is the 'first Hanuman Chalisa' ever recorded in the history of India. It was recored by Babu Kishan he composed the music, arranged it, it is sung by his late friend Hari Om Sharan and played in all the temples in India. It made the record company millions but not a rupee for Babu Kishan or the late great Hari Om Sharan.

When Babu first recorded it nobody wanted to buy it but sitting in his studio in Mumbai a person found it took it to a record company and sold it behind his back and disappeared. I post this from time to time as a reminder when we get back to Mumbai to get a lawyer and take the record company to court. Babu wants me to forget it but I won't let it go.

Babu Kishan is the mandolin player on this album the mandolin is one of some 15 instruments he has mastered.
The same will happen to the Bauls who have stolen Babu Kishan's intellectual property and erased his name, erased the names of the poets, including Nabani Das Bauls and just used to promote themselves and collect donations to cheat people, saying they are going to preserve Baul when it was preserved decades ago by Babu Kishan.
Also, if you don't know Babu is an expert on Indian Music, he has a Masters Degree from Calcutta University MA of Indian Music, he has categorized all the music of India for the Big Music (Record) companies of India in Bombay since the 1980's.
 Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das was a monk in the Ramakrishna order in Calcutta for 12 years.

Babu Kishan's tribute to Lata Mangeshkar whom he personally knew and released much of her music. I asked Babu who was the greatest female Tantric he knew and he said Lata Mangeshkar, she knew the technique of Indian Music all of it, she was Saraswati herself. He also, knew Lataji's sisters Usha Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle. Asha was married to R.D. Burman who was Babu's Indian Cinema (Bollywood Music Guru) for over 15 years, he was in Indian Cinema for 35 years. 
Babu arranged for his mother to meet Lataji, he took this picture of his late Mother Manju Das (the first Women Baul to travel the world starting in the 1960's) his mother loved Lataji, therefore, because Babu was the assistant for Hemant Kumar Mukherjee, so Babu arranged this photo to fulfill his mothers desire. At an earlier age Babu worked for W Bengal Music forum as a Musician, Lyric writer, and Music Composer. Babu started at age of 9 as a poet and age 11 as a Music Composer for parents, Arti Mukherjee, Bhupen Hazarika, Shakti Thakur, and other famous Bengali singers. He was awarded youngest Music Composer of Bengal at age 11. This is history of Indian's oldest and only Baul Lineage #baullineage #womenBaul #baulhistory
Photo by Babu Kishan @ Netaji Indoor Stadium when Lataji came to perform, organized by Hemant Kumar Mukherjee, Babu was his assistant then as a 2nd Music Assistant of Hemant Kumar in the 1980's.

Baul Sahaja, Vaishnava Tantric Baul Lineage, only one lineage, is NOT the same as Buddhist Sahaja, it is Krishna Sahaja! (C) Copyright, do not copy or poach!

Do not copy and take the names off, no poaching !

It is said that one would only comprehend the Avadhuta Gita after understanding the word ‘samsara’. It is also found in the Upanishads and Tantra scriptures where the sages used the word to mean ‘higher truths’. 

Nabani Das Khyapa Baul - whom all Bauls followed. 

Nabani was the last authentic, Krishna Sahaja the Sahaja of Dattatreya, the path of the Avadhut. 

Nabani Das Khyapa Baul was a Vaishnava Baul Avadhut, he is the last Baul Avadhut.

Baul is Krishna (Dattatreya) Sahaja NOT Buddhist Sahaja as told by outsiders who do not even know, but use Nabani's name, his style of dance, Nupoor, Baya and Ektara and sing the songs of this lineage. They do this by taking the names off and adding new names or making Baul generic by using the term the 'Baul Masters" and saying Baul does not care? 

Baul does care who the poets are, this is how they give respect to the poets of this lineage. Only a person using Baul would say otherwise, it is because they are appropriating Baul and do not know the names of the poets, to look woke they make Baul generic or make it up as they go? 

To say 'Baul does not care who the poets are,' is absolute 100% ignorance! Baul always gives respect to the human being and the individual and who wrote the poetry. 

History: authentic Lineage Baul always knew who the poets were and where the poetry originated, they never used 'Baul Masters'??
Babu Kishan absolutely knows who the poets are!

Update, Jan 2021

"Baul is Sahaja, Vaishnava Sahaja (Krishna Sahaja) and the Sahaja of Lord Dattatreya (Avadhut Gita). Vaishnava Baul Kirtan and songs always paid respect to all the great Vaishnava poets including Jaya Dev, Narottama Das and Vaishnava Agama, Baul is dual and non dual.

There are many new age Vaishnava who display out right hatred towards Bauls and Vaishnava Sahajiya. these are Orthodox Vaishnava they hate and slander Sahaja in Bengal. However, Sahaja is higher and not lower, as lewd, crude and wild sex, that type of Sahaja was created and expanded upon in later times and condemned by New Age Orthodox Vaishnava reformers. 

 This is not the authentic Sahaja of the Vaishnava Bauls of Birbhum. More on their Krishna Sahajaya below.

“The person who has conquered the baser self and has reached to the level of self mastery: he is at peace, whether it be in cold or hot, pleasure or pain, honoured or dishonoured" 

– Bhagavad Gita.

'Baul SAHJA is NOT Buddhist Sahaja. Baul Sahaja is NOT from Buddhist teachings. 

Baul Shaja is from KRISHNA whom the Vaishnava Bauls consider the highest sahaja'. 

Krishna Sahaja is much much older, in fact 3000 years older, Baul Sahaja is from the greatest Sahaja of all time 'Krishna'. Baul Sahaja is the 'Sahaja of Krishna' who lived during the time of the Mahabharat War which was over 5,000 years ago. 

Dattatreya is much older.

SAHJA is a Sanskrit word!

Which came way before Buddhism.

Baul is a combination of 2 Sanskrit words, Batula, Vayu V is B is Bengali VAYU = Bayu(Tula) Batula = Baul  

Baul in earlier times was called Batula, then shortened to Baul. Bauls are wind catchers.

Bauls are experts at balancing the vital airs through (pranayam). Thus Bauls practice what they call Vayu Dharma, they have their own techniques along with tradition Pranayam techniques.

As told by Babu Kishan

If you read this it came from Babu Kishan, some may re-word it, and claim they said it or that it comes from their fake lineage, seriously this happens and it is annoying and disrespectful to take and pretend it came from you?

If you were not born into Baul or are a close disciple of a Baul Guru, from this lineage, you would be a Sanskrit Scholar of the oral tradition? 

If you are NOT chances are, the person speaking or preaching or collecting donations is NOT a Baul and has no Baul Guru, they just made it up, a lineage and a Guru, to collect donations of all things to preserve Baul?

Recent 'outsiders' who are preaching. Baul is from Buddhism, are fools? These outsiders trying to represent the Vaishnava Bauls of Birbhum but actually feeding into and helping what is already a cultural genocide of a rare indigenous peoples, for what, only for selfish reasons. 

The outsiders are using Baul watering it down, reducing Baul to fake Baul Sadhana and giving wrong teachings is part of the destruction of the original mudding the stories, taking names off or saying Baul does not care, using Baul busy building a platform that has no foundation?   

If you hear Baul Sahaja, comes from Krishna you can know it was copied from Babu Kishan) and only told by Babu Kishan the eldest Grandchild of Nabani Das Khyapa Baul and eldest son of Purna Das Baul. 

Babu's main 'Sat Guru' is Nabani Das Khyapa Baul, he is the only one out of all of Nabani's sons who has preserved and stated that Nabani is his Guru.

 Not even his father or uncles have stated Nabani is their Guru, they have said that others are, but still Nabani is their father of course he is their Guru so is Brajabala.

 Nabani being Babu's Guru is a rare thing and that is another story. Babu spent over 8 years with Nabani in his lap with him 24/7, Nabani's children did not even get what Babu got from Nabani because he was always traveling.

 Purna and Laxshman never called their father Nabani their Guru, which is hard to understand but there is way more to the story than meets the eye. Long story.

Copyright, no poaching from this blog. 

True Baul is non-stealing. I do not like to keep repeating it over and over but what is going on is wrong and has been for a very long time, people speaking about who the Bauls are with wrong information that has led to a Cultural Genocide of a whole sect from people who are not even from Birbhum.

Keep your self created narrative, the truth will be revealed. I have been reading and view on video's wrong teachings about the Sahaja of the Bauls being Buddhist yet these people are fundraising to preserve Baul? 

Please think again before you donate to anybody who is fundraising to preserve Baul?  Baul has already has been preserved decades ago?

New groups even scholars landing our ancestral home in Birbhum, probably only giving my cousins a few repuees to take advantage and be the saviours of saving our Baul lineage?? Baba Pagla everywhere, he was not a Baul, he had his own following, he was a poet who followed Baul and had me many times compose music for his poetry. We knew him well, we did not follow him, he stayed at our house and followed my dad??

Babu Kishan

Baul is and always has been Sahajaya for thousands of years.

 The term Sahajaya has been totally misused by modern day orthodox Vaishnava reformers from Bengal and fake Bauls.

"Sahaja simply means natural. It not only implies natural on physical and spiritual levels, but on the mystic level of the miraculous. Sahaja is the look of wonder in a babies eyes.

It means that easy or natural state of living without planning, design, contriving, seeking, wanting, striving or intention. It is that nature which, when once established, brings the state of absolute freedom and peace. 

Sahaja is a natural state which balances reality between the pairs of opposites and maintains harmony of the Cosmos. 

Thus ‘sahaja’ expresses one who has reverted to his natural state, free from conditioning. 

It typifies the outlook which belongs to the natural, spontaneous and uninhibited man, free from innate or inherited defects. As such even nakedness of the sadhus is considered to be ‘sahaja’. 

By his own demeanor Dattatreya shows man’s instinct for naturalness and primordial perfection not only of the physical and spiritual level but at the mystical level. 

A parallel is made to plants and trees which do not grow according ‘svadharma’ or rules and obligations incurred at birth. Nature only has ‘svabhava’ meaning its own inborn self or essence as its guidance. In other words ‘what is to come must come of itself’ to manifest in a state of absolute freedom. 

Taoism speaks of ‘sahaja’ as a highest virtue – the loss of the peculiar naturalness or unselfconsciousness. One finds this state in an innocent child which is always in its ‘sahaja’ state unless interfered to by society. 

In his semi-naked state Dattatreya was just as unconscious of others nakedness as he was of his own. 

“The person who has conquered the baser self and has reached to the level of self mastery: he is at peace, whether it be in cold or hot, pleasure or pain, honoured or dishonoured" – Bhagavad Gita.

It is said that one would only comprehend the Avadhuta Gita after understanding the word ‘samsara’. It is also found in the Upanishads and Tantra scriptures where the sages used the word to mean ‘higher truths’. 

What is ‘higher truth?’ 

It means the essential unity of all things -- of all existence, the equipoise of equanimity, the supreme bliss of harmony, that which is aesthetically balanced, undifferentiated unity, absolute assimilation, the most perfect unification and the highest consummation of Oneness. "
