Sharan Ashram Ka Sapoot : Interpretation from Literary- Consciousness Perspectives
Dayalbagh has forged far ahead in matter of Pure Spirituality right since its birth. It covers the entire spectrum of Modern Healthcare Habitat from “Maternity to Eternity” that is from infanthood of children right through their final attainment of Supreme Being’s Abode that is their emancipation and their dynamically in equilibrium which keeps them moving throughout the Pure Spiritual Region in a dynamic sense.
– Most Revered Prof. Prem Saran Satsangi Sahab
The relation between art and truth is inextricable. Since time immemorial the writings of Mystics and Saints have exerted unquantifiable influence on our life and development of culture. Devotional literature or sacred literature comprises a large part of world literature. Holy literature of Supreme Saints is an artistic revelation of the Ultimate Truth which takes literary experience beyond material boundaries.
The breadth of Radhasoami sacred literature of Supreme Saints is extensive. It includes devotional lyrics dealing with themes of praise of Supreme Lord’s Glory, exhortations, prayers of estranged and anguished spirits, descriptions of the mystery of creation, poems of joy at the spirit’s communion with the Supreme spirit, speeches, allegories, Diaries, Treatise on scientific- spiritual expositions, Autobiographical Retrospective and plays.
The talk is a humble attempt to analyze the play Saranshram ka Sapoot written by His Holiness Huzur Sahabji Maharaj from literary – consciousness perspectives. The play revolves round two children Prem Bihari lal and Shobhavanti who are ill- treated by their step mother. Seeing their miserable condition, a kind Satsangi Premlal comes to their rescue and sends them to Sharan Ashram, Dayalbagh where they are raised as complete human beings. Apart from its sublime thought, the play is exemplary for its literary – artistic merit.
The talk would situate the play within the framework of altered states of consciousness and would also foreground the Eastern spiritual perspective of consciousness with reference to triple hierarchical model of consciousness given by Most Revered Prof. Prem Saran Satsangi Sahab.
