An Illustrative Talk by Dhanashree Lele
The pain of separation from the Creator is at the core of Sufi ideology. While saint-philosophers like Rumi, Lal Dedh, Kabir, Bulle Shah and others have fervently expressed their love and longing for the Divine through their poetry, we find similar thoughts also being echoed in the works of others like Tukaram, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and many Bhakti poets across ages in numerous languages.
Focusing on the philosophy of Sufi traditions (sampraday), this presentation aims to draw a parallel between Sufi ideology and the indigenous philosophy of Vedanta, along with the concept of bhakti. The talk seeks to illustrate the underlying similarities in all these thoughts, thus highlighting the universality of the truth. The talk, presented in Hindi and Urdu, will be interspersed with musical excerpts from the respective traditions.
