Surdas Jayanti 2016

Sant Surdas (1478-1581 C.E.) was a great poet and musician known for his devotional songs dedicated to Lord Krishna. Surdas was born blind and because of that he was neglected by his family. As a result, he left his home at the tender age of six and started praising Lord Krishna at a very young age.

According to historians Sant Surdas was born on 1478 C.E. in village Sihi, Faridabad, Haryana. However some claims that he was born at Runkta near Agra. The birth anniversary of Sant Surdas is observed as per Hindu lunar calendar and falls on Shukla Paksha, Panchami in Vaishakha month.

Surdas’ music and fine poetry attracted many laurels. As his fame spread far and wide, the Mughal emperor Akbar became his patron. Surdas spent the last years of his life in Braj and lived on the donations, which he received in return for his Bhajan singing and lecturing on religious topics.

Surdas is said to have written and composed a hundred thousand songs in his magnum opus the Sur Sagar (Ocean of Melody), out of which only about 8,000 are in existence.

Saint SurdasThe poet attributes his contributions to Vatsalya Ras. He was a devoted saint who followed Krishna and used to sing songs that are spiced up the childhood adventures of Lord Krishna. Surdas composed bhajans (religious verses) in simple ‘Braj’ language. These bhajans explains philosophical teachings and moral lessons by short episodes from the life of Krishna. His important literary works include the collection of his poetry as Sursagar, Sur-Saravali and Sahitya-Lahiri. The literary works by him helped in spreading the Bhakti movement in North India.

Some historians recite an interesting legend about him that once Surdas saw Lord Krishna in his dreams and Krishna asked him to go to Vrindavan and he found Guru Vallabhacharya, an ardent devotee of Lord Krishna there. Surdas gained knowledge of Hindu scriptures from him and since then Surdas dedicated his entire life to Krishna. He remained bachelor all through his life. He began to sing devotional songs dedicated to Lord Krishna in Vrindavan. His fame soon reached Mughal courts and made Mughal emperor Akbar his patron.
