The Two Mystic Poets: Kabir and Lalon
Forerunner mystic poet Sant Kabir Ji and his poetic successor Lalon Sayeen are two great thought ancestries in this subcontinent. They are not only poets or saints of the stream they have also great impact in building our main thought stream. Here we had a quest in to the treasure with which they executed influence over the thinkers and truth-seekers. From the point destitute of the view of love and interest, it is hard to enter the treasure cave they had. Another follow up there is here. Since both they are mystic, so, they are ones of world mystical tradition. Rhythmic unity of human elementary beliefs made them fallen in the single stream. The writer looked at this unity of mystical authority from Heraclitus to Lalon. Reevaluation of mysticism inspired to look at the subject eagerly. And that was made by, as we know specifically, three exponents. Ones among them are: Rabundranath Tagore, Bertrand Russell and L. Wittgenstein. According to their apprehension, the present writer looked at the text of the two mystic poets. Thus their forerunner-successor link is, I don’t know whether it is just or alike to say, discovered. However with this description everything such as: theme, meaning, thought and attitude of their songs, is connected. So, if the present writer claims: new many things of the two mystic poets are openly described here; perhaps, the claim will not be far ahead than the reality. Besides that, their synthetic and all-inclusive outlook is known to all. Other else anywhere, proper study of human thought may disclose the secrets why both the mystic poets and the stream are timeless and universal. Presently it is practical to look and think how the two mystic poets looked at life and world and also at truth-good-beauty. Lastly, most important and harder a work has been taken to do it is the universal mystical view on God as only this view is free from savage imagination.
