"Divine love is the rarest thing in the world. He, who can love God as a devoted wife loves her husband, attains to divine love. Pure love is difficult to acquire. In pure love the whole heart and soul must be absorbed in God. Then will come ecstasy. In ecstasy a man remains dumb with wonder. In divine love one entirely forgets the external world with all its charms and attractions; even one’s own body, which is so dear to one, is easily forgotten. In ecstasy the whole mind remains absolutely fixed upon the supreme. Those who are mere scholars and have not attained divine love, confound the minds of others." ~ Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
"Cry to God with a yearning heart and then you will see Him. People will shed a jug full of tears for the sake of spouse or children; they will be carried away by a stream of their own tears for the sake of money; but who sheds a tear for God? Cry for Him, not for show, but with a longing and yearning heart. The rosy light of the dawn comes before the rising sun; likewise a longing and yearning heart is the sign of God-vision that comes after. Extreme longing is the surest way to God-vision. Through extreme longing the mind remains fixed on the Supreme Being." ~Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
It is said that Rudraksha is God’s gift to mankind. The word ‘rudraksha’ refers more to the broad leaved tree but is usually associated with the seed used in Hindu prayers and chanting. The botanical name is Elaeocarpus granitrus. ‘Rudraksha’ means Rudra’s eye and tradionally used for prayers in Hinduism. Etymologically it originates from two Sanskrit words, ‘Rudra’ meaning “Shiva” and ‘aksha’ means ‘eye’ or ‘teardrop’. The word ‘rudraksha’ is interchangeably used for the seed as well as the ‘mala’ made from them and used as a rosary for repetitive prayer during the japa. In this sense it is an aid to concentration and worship in Hinduism.
MYTHOLOGY: Mythological tales have it that the Rudraksha plant was born out of Lord Shiva’s tear drops. Thus rudraksha seeds are prized as the compassionate tears of Lord Shiva for human suffering. From time immemorial, rudraksha beads have adorned the bodies of sages and saints as a symbol of God’s love. Chanting on each bead, “Aum Namah Sivaya", they led fearless life in far-flung frontiers seeking enlightenment and liberation. It is also used symbolically by Hindus as a mala or a single bead chain worn around the neck. Normally rosaries that are worn have 108 or 54 beads strung together. Rudrakshas can be mantra energized and each type has a deity and plant attached to it.
PURANA: The greatness and powers of the rudraksha is mentioned in ancient scriptures, such as ‘Shiva Purana’, ‘Padma Purana’ and ‘Srimad Bhagavad’ . According to the old mythological epic "Shiv Purana", Rudraksha was the favorite tree of Lord Shiva and it grew in Gauda land which is the present day Gangetic plains to foothills of Himalayas. Various mantras relating to rudrakhas are described in the Padam Purana and Vidyeshvarasamhita from Shiva Purana (Chaper 25).
SEED: The seed of the Rudraksha tree holds a very special place in Hinduism, and is credited to possess mystical and divine properties. Necklaces made of Rudraksha beads are considered auspicious as well as powerful, and are supposed to have profound astrological and health benefits. It is believed that one who wears Rudraksha is untouched by sins, and is protected from all impious deeds or thoughts. Rudraksha seeds are covered by an outer shell of blue color when fully ripe, and for this reason are also known as blueberry beads. The blue colour is derived not from pigment but is structural. It is an evergreen tree that grows quickly. Rudraksha Tree starts bearing fruit in three to four years. As the tree matures, the roots buttress rising up narrowly near the trunk and radiating out along the surface of the ground.
RUDRAKSHA TREE: Rudraksha is a large, evergreen broad-leaved tree found in tropical and sub-tropical areas at the altitudes ranging from seacoast to 2,000 meters above the sea level. The tree is perennial and grows throughout the year. The Tree of Rudraksha is about 50-200 feet tall depending on the area and the climate. The diameter of trunk is upto 1.22 meter. The main trunk of the Rudraksha tree is cylindrical with a grayish white and rough textured bark. In nature, leafy crown of a Rudraksha tree takes a pyramidal shape.
LEAVES: The leaves of Rudraksha tree are shinning green on the upper side with a dull leathery dorsal side. In the beginning these leaves are light green in color and turn into deep green at the time of maturity and changes into yellowish red before turning grey coffee color and falling. This cycle of leaves continues all over the tree throughout the year. Rudraksha flowers are white with fringed petals and they appear in April-May. Its flowers exhibit mild aroma or fragrance like raat ki rani. The flowers of the Rudraksha appear in bunches. Rudraksha fruits appear in June and ripen by August-October but it occurs only when the tree is seven to eight years old.
FRUITS: Rudraksha fruits are globular in shape with a fleshy exterior. The size of the fruit is 2cms to 4cms in diameter and is green in color. After maturity the colour of fruit starts turning into bluish violet from green and then into deep brown and then finally into light black in colour. Rudraksha farming is a difficult process due to the slow sprouting from the beads. Depending on the humidity of the soil, it usually takes 1-2 years for a tree to sprout. Rudraksha is grown in subtropics climatic regions with temperature ranges of 25-30 degree centigrade. The tree starts giving fruit after 7 years.
RUDRAKSHA BEADS: The bead is inside the fruit which we call the seed of the fruit of Rudraksha. The bead present inside is hard and tubercles. The bead has very hard rough surface having uneven grooves and a long cavity in the center from the point where it's main is attached to the stem. The bead contains seed/s inside and receives their nourishment from the central cavity. From the central cavity vertical clefts remain attached.Each cleft has separate compartment having one internal seed. The joint of these cleft preludes outside the body of the seed. This joint is visible from outside. This joint is known as mukhi or dhari or we call facet.
MUKHIS: A single Rudraksha tree bears beads in all different faces or ‘mukhis’ at the same time. ‘Mukhi’ or ‘muhka’ means face. It indicates the clefts and furrows they have on the surface. Rudraksha beads are classified on the basis of the number of “mukhis”
The higher mukhis or faces are very rare. Most common Rudraksha bead is the five faceted or panch mukhi. Rudraksha up to 21 mukhis are found and documented. But 22 to 29 mukhis have also been obtained.
Each bead has a different effect, depending on the number of mukhis it has. These are vital from the astrological viewpoint, since it is believed that Rudrakshas of different mukhis please different planets. The scriptures speak of 1 to 38 mukhis, but Rudrakshas of 1 to 14 mukhis are commonly found. The central hard Rudraksha uni-seed has 1 to 108 faces and 2 to 21 faces Rudraksha are available, 1 faced Rudraksha is scarcely available, Rudraksha having 22 to 108 are almost extinct. It is said that 22 to 108 faced Rudraksha plants still survive at the Himalayan foot hills and Mansarovar regions but are yet to be found.
JAPA MALA: ‘Japa’ means chanting and ‘Mala’ means garland. Japa mala is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus during chanting or reciting hymns. Such recitals are known as ‘nama-japa’. Usually 108 beads are stringed together to form a complete mala. There would be a head bead to indicate a full circle of counts. This head bead is called the Sumeru or Bindu. It is also known as the guru bead. Rice, flower buds and beads of sorts are used to indicate the completion of the 108 rolls.
108 BEADS: More than keeping count, Japa mala is used for concentration and focus while mantra of a particular deity is chanted. Several reasons are attributed to the number 108. Among the Vaishnavites, 108 gopis of Vrandavan is reffered to by the Gaudiya school. The ancient rishis apparently made astronomical calaculations to derive at the figure 108.
Astrologically the distance of the Sun from Earth divided by diameter of Sun and distance of Moon from Earth divided by diameter of moon is approximatelty equal to 108. Hence 108 became significant in vedic chantings. The diameter of the sun is 108 times the diameter of the earth. In astrology there are 12 constellations and 9 are segments called namshas or chandrakalas. 9 x 12 = 108. Chandra is moon and kalas are the divisions within the whole. Also in astrology, there are 12 houses and 9 planets.
108 may also be the product of precise mathematical operation, for example 1 power 1 x 2 power 2 x 3 power 3 equals 108. Number 9 and 12 have spiritual significance. 9 x 12 = 108. Also 1 plus 8 equals 9 and again 9 x 12 = 108.
The number of Sanskrit alphabets is 54. Each has a masculine and feminine – Shiva Shakti. 54 x 2 is 108.
Heart Charkra: The chakras are intersections of energy lines and there are said to be a total of 108 energy lines converging to from the heart chakra. One of them, susumna leads down the crown chakra and is said to be the path of Self-realisation.
Marma: Or marmastanas are like energy intersections called chakras, except have fewer energy lines converging to from them. There are said to be 108 marmas in the subtle body.
Spiritually 1, 0 and 8 has significance. 1 stands for God or higher Truth, 0 stands for emptiness or completeness and spiritual practice and 8 stands for infinity or eternity.

Old Movie from Bengal. ....
Nitai or Nityananda was a Baul and he was from Babukishan's family they have the stories that are not known regarding his lineage, they have never been revealed because of what has happened to Vaishnavism in Bengal, Vaishnava Bauls never rich temples or collected devotee's, they are an oral lineage so there was no need to sell book.
Nimai is Sri Chaitanya, this is the story of his life. The songs or kirtan in this film are Lineage Vaishnava Baul kirtan. The second little boy and mother carrying the ektara or Gopi Chand which little baby Chaitanya is crying for is Sri Nityananda who was a Baul and later in the movie when they are older Chaitanya meets Nitai again you can hear the ankle bells that the Bauls have always worn for thousands of years and you can see Nitai was a Baul who wandered and sang Baul kirtan.
Chaitanya was not a born Vaishnava but he had great respect for his Guru's in which he had 108, Sri Nityananda was one of his Guru's and he had great respect for him as a Vaishnava Baul. There is so much that has not been revealed from the oral tradition of Vaishnava Baul and most of what is taught today by modern Vaishnava reformers is a mere drop in the ocean of this ancient tradition called Lineage Vaishnava Baul Gosai Das Baul and Gosai Dasi Baul.
The mirror of the sky
Reflects my soul.
Oh Baul of the road,
Oh Baul my heart,
What keeps me tied to the corner of the room,
What keeps me tied?
By Nabani Das Khyappa Baul
Nabani Das Khyapa Baul
Celebrated baul singer, sadhak, philosopher, composer and great Vaishnava Baul poet of Bengal. Son of Okkur Gosain, he was the first Baul to spread Baul songs and philosophy throughout the country with his unique singing style. He gained many great friends during his time, like Nobal prize winning poet, Rabindranath Tagore, poet Kazi Nazrul, Tara Shankar, Banaful, Kshiti Mohan sec Shastri, Dr. Bidhan, Chandra Roy and many more... He worked for and was very committed to supporting the Indian revolution against the British during their occupation. He dedicated many songs to this effort which helped to give his people strength and hope throughout these difficult times. Joyfull, even in the face of adversity, as true Baul's are, his songs were carefully crafted with beautiful and meaningful lyrics. Many of the writers that focused on Baul culture of the time, wrote books based on the life and teachings of Guru Nabani das. Publications can be found in both Bengali and English that sport his name and teachings. He acquired and taught a great many disciples including American poet Allen Ginsberg. After the noterity that poet Rabindranath Tagore assisted him in obtaining, Allen Ginsberg furthered the voice of Baul culture by introducing baul philosophy, music and energies to the western world. As a result, many films about the life and beliefs of Guru Nabani das Baul were made and distributed
The Roots the Seeds of Vaishnava Baul in Bengal go back thousands of years they were preserved by the Vaishnava Bauls so that all can know about Bhakti Yoga and Kirtan in the west brought forward by Modern Vaishnava reformers.. Thank God/dess... don't analyze it just appreciate the roots and sing sweet songs of Love of Bhakti from your own heart.. Hare Krishna Hare Krishna.. Bauls do not build temples or collect devotee's they were know to adopt and help people from all religions giving them all a place, they accepted all rejected people and allowed them to be who they are. Bauls peacemakers.. unity makers.. Sweet Love of all no caste, no creed Radha and Krishna / Kali and Shiva live in the hearts of all.
Radharani Dasi Baul and her husband Gopal Das Baul
"The first Dotara used by authentic Lineage Bauls in India was by "Gopal Das Baul" in the early 1940's he was the husband of Radharani Dasi Baul ( Babu's aunt who was the biggest most famous Baul women for her revolutionary firsts as a Baul women, she was a sweet magical Baulini with a voice that is a heavenly gift.) Gopal Das Baul who was a disciple of Nabani Das Khyeppa Baul, Nabani said, Gopal of all my students you are the best, what can I do for you. Gopal said, "I want to marry your daughter, Radharani, please allow me to be in your family and take care of Radharani all her life." Gopal Das was pure Vaishnava, a true sadhaka and a disciple who was true.
Radharani Dasi Baul was the first official Baul women to record on, "All India Radio" but she was very shy and after she recorded a few songs she never returned. Bauls are not about collecting students and building temples they are rare and very authentic innocents in this world. In the 1960's a movie called Raikamal was made about Radharani's life, written by one of Bengals top writers, "Tara Shankar." In 1985 a movie called Togori was also made about Radharani's life, Babukishan was fully involved in this movie right down to the design of the dress that the actress playing Radharani would wear. A very historic family Lineage of Bauls....from thousands of years back singing the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra in Bengal from the beginning of the story, way before Gaudiya Vaishnavism or the Bauls ancestor Sri Nityananda also know as Nitai. So when Nitai met his best friend at the time Sri Chaitanya his oral ancestoral way of living and singing naturally flowed into Sri Chaitanya, the stories are in the oral tradition so much of the modern cults coming out of Gaudiya have been repeating the same made up stories over and over.
Gopal Das was the son of the Ekchakra Nityananda Temple, and he was a great sweet maker. Nityananda Mahaprabu was a Baul and from this lineage."
Both now deceased, Baul is becoming extinct, and distorted, the lineage and all it's rasa is almost gone.
Jai Bangla Baul of India.
