Connection Series: Bhakti Ke Tin Svar / Three Bhakti Voices

5:00–7:00 pm
UChicago Center in Delhi

Mar.
27

Bhakti or ‘devotion’—as a religious concept and practice, as a literary and aesthetic program, and as a social and political ‘movement’—vastly changed the cultural landscape of India in the medieval and early modern periods and continues to shape the way that many people in India (and other South Asian countries) understand the world and their place in it. Through their poetry and their life stories the poet-saints Mirabai, Kabir, and Surdas have become so closely associated with bhakti that their fame has spread among devotees all over the subcontinent, including those far from northern India where these saints are believed to have lived. At the same time they have also become important figures in the more general historical and cultural consciousness of the independent Indian nation as they provide ways to think through questions of morality, duty, individual, and community.
