9788120817753: Sahaj Prakash: The Brightness of Simplicity

This book is intended to introduce the work of the now relatively unknown Hindi devotional poet Sahajo Bai to readers of Indian literature and those interested in Hinduism through the provision of a contemporary translation of her major work Sahaj Prakash. The original text is also given for comparative purposes. It is hoped that this book will enable the work of this devotional woman poet to be better known and appreciated within India and abroad, and that readers will use the book in many different ways, academic and creative, as seems most appropriate to them.

Original Language: Hindi

Review:

''Original work in Devnagri text is given on the left side and its English translation is given on the right side an thus this book is useful for both Hindi & English readers. The subject matter of this book is very interesting and it is related to different aspects of human life and spiritual traditions of India.'' --- Jr. Of Religious Studies Vol. 34 no., 1&2 Spring-Autumn 2003

''The editors and translators deserve every praise for maintaining the simplicity, grace and luster of the original text. This volume is a rare contribution to Indian culture and civilization as it aims at spreading and popularizing their eternal human values among the non-Hindu knowing masses. The editors and translators have rightly concluded that Sahajo's words are like the kohinoor. Their beauty is unparalleled and of course, it is the beauty of simplicity. Sahaja Prakasa deals with the subject pertaining more to heart than to head. These verses are more to be lived than to be read or critically appreciated.'' --- Praci-Jyoti, Digest of Indological Studies
