Dear Sri Ravi,

I just glanced the movie,and even if dont understand what they are saying,the music is absolutely wonderful! Even,He mostly sings,so conversations are not so important. Indeed,beautiful music. And His songs are cure for the Soul.

Thank You very much!

With love and prayers,

Ravi.N

Jewell,
How right you are!The compositions are called Abhangs and The Mahratti Singing Style is simply wonderful ,has a manly vigour and  sprightly rhythm-The Abhangs of these Saints are a wonderful blend of Jnana ,Bhakti,Vairagya and Viveka.The subtitles in this movie will help one to follow the story and enjoy it.

Here is an Excerpt from 'Spiritual stories as Told by Ramana maharshi':
TOTAL ABIDANCE
A devotee asked, “How does the repetition of the name of God help Realisation?” Sri Bhagavan replied, “The original name is always going on spontaneously without any
effort on the part of the individual. That name is aham – ‘I’. But when it becomes manifest it manifests as ahamkara – the ego. The oral repetition of the name leads one to mental repetition which finally resolves itself into the eternal vibration. The mind or the mouth cannot act without the Self.” Thereupon Sri Bhagavan told the following story.
TUKARAM, THE GREAT Maharashtra Saint, used to remain in samadhi in the day and sing and dance at night with large crowds of people. He always used to utter the name of Sri Rama. Once he was answering the call of nature and also saying “Ram, Ram”. An orthodox priest was shocked at the uttering of the holy name by the saint when his body was not clean. Hence he reprimanded him and ordered him to be silent. Tukaram said,
“All right!” and remained mute. But at once there arose the name of Rama from every pore of Tukaram and the priest was horrified by the din. He then prayed to Tukaram, “Restrictions are only for the common people and not for saints like you.”

Namaskar.

Dear Sri Ravi,

How wonderful story! How much we can learn from them,and from the Great Saints like Saint Tukaram was. All wisdom is contained in these sweet poems,that it touches our Souls so deeply,and we even dont notice how great and deep impact they have. So much devotion,love and longing... Absolute madness and surrender..sweet madness...

Indeed,the music is beautiful,i like it very much.

Thank You so much,dear Sir,for sharing it,and this,truly impressive story!

With love and prayers,

Ravi.N

Dear Sri Ravi,

How wonderful,wonderful movie about Saint Dyaneshwar! It is absolutely breathtaking! I am so impressed with it. Tears,laugh,tears,laugh... It is full with Divine emotion,such a beautiful lessons and wisdom. And such a touching,touching life story!

I love these old movies. Even bad guys in them are presented in some funny,humorous way,and some gentleness is in them generally... Believe me,two hours passed so fast,that i did not even noticed. And  the songs, the songs are beautiful. They are calling us to sing with them.

I enjoyed even more,coz i wanted to know more about Great Dyaneshwar.

Thank You soooo much for it,and for this movie about Saint Tukaram! He is next in my planner.  :)

With love and prayers,

Ravi.N

Jewell,
Yes,the lives of these Great Saints are a perennial source of inspiration.Just contemplating their lives and teachings ,especially when they are in song form are an easy form of Sadhana.You are quite right in that,these old movies have a charm and how even 'Bad guys' are represented in a humourous and funny way.
You may like to read the story of Sant Dhyaneswar(also called Jnaneshwar)here;also featured are the lives of other saints.

Jewell/Friends,
You may also like to explore the compositions of Sant Tukaram with meaning sung in Abhang style by Bhimsen Joshi and lata mangeshwar.There are quite a few with English Translations.
Here is a sample:

Dear Sri Ravi,

How wonderful songs! There is so much power in them,words cannot describe it. Words,music,singers,are so beautiful.

Tukaram was such a Great Soul. I even did not realised how Great. I knew His poems,but nothing about His life. It was full of miracles. Beautiful indeed...
And through that link You have posted,about their life,is very useful for me. There are some which i love very much,and about which i have read already,but about many others i dont know anything,or just their work.

Dear Sir,thank You Very much for this! It is pure gold!

With love and prayers,
