Baul Mela Online 2022

A celebration of Prem (Love), Bhakti (Devotion), and Rasa (Essence)!

One satsang each day, live-streamed at 9pm India time (or watch the replays in your own time!)

This year we “travel” to both West Bengal (India) and Bangladesh to immerse with 8 different Baul Master-practitioners and conclude with a Milon on the final day.

The Sanatan Siddhashram project in Santiniketan (led by Parvathy Baul) is one of the primary supported projects of SACSA which promotes instruction to all in the music/dance/art of indigenous folk and spiritual traditions of Bengal.

 

Parvathy Baul is a singer and spiritual teacher in the Baul tradition from Bengal, India. The Baul path combines traditional yoga, song and music, reverence for the feminine, and a fierce opposition to the caste system.

Parvathy is renowned for both her extraordinary performances and her profound understanding of the spiritual path. She is the lineage holder of the revered singer-guru Sri Sanatan Das Thakur Baul.

 

Parvathy is committed to providing new opportunities to women in India and around the world to engage in spiritual and creative practice.
