Sahaj Madhuri is a biannual newsletter, published online from Ekathara Kalari Gurukul based in Trivandrum, Kerala. Through these editions we discuss one’s own inner search through Baul Sadhana. We create possibilities for the Baul Anuragee to have more insight into the Baul life and work. In the future, we will include more happenings in the Baul world.

In the Master’s Playground

On 1st March 2014, I accompanied Parvathy Maa to Baba’s ashram. From Kolkotta we travelled to Durgapur by bus, a town near Baba’s ashram which was in Sonamukhi village. From Durgapur we then drove by car. On the way, Maa stopped to buy tender coconuts for Baba, as it had become a traditional offering for her to get him tender coconuts every time she visited him. I never knew that even in that unassuming act, of offering to the Guru, can hold the potential lesson for what happens to be my first ever journey to His abode.
