About Saint Surdas Jayanti

Saint Surdas

Saint Surdas portrayed in exquisite poetry the life of Krishna, especially child Krishna, in such vivid detail that he has not been equalled by any saint or poet, not even Kalidasa, in describing childhood.
It is one of the marvels in the realms of literature how a blind poet could portray in such meticulous and colourful detail the childhood of Krishna, stage by stage. Krishna's cutting his first tooth,
his uttering of the first word, his taking the first step unaided, are all occasions for Surdas to compose inspired songs which are sung even to this day, in hundreds of homes, by mothers who see child Krishna in their own children.
The love that had been denied to him as a child flows by means of his songs on, the love that was showered on Bala Gopala in Braj by Yashoda, Nandagopa, the Gopis and the Gopas.

Surdas Jayanti

Surdas, the blind saint and poet, sang about the childhood adventures of Lord Krishna. In 2011, the date of Surdas Jayanthi is May 8. The bhajans that Surdas sang were simple, easy to sing and contained short incidents from the life of Krishna peppered with philosophical teachings and moral lessons. Sursagar is his collection of poetry and is an important literary work that helped in spreading the Bhakti movement in North India.
It must be noted that historians and scholars have no one opinion regarding Surdas's birth and death. An Indian postage stamp indicates that Surdas was born in 1479 A D and left his body in 1586.
Legend has it that Surdas had the darshan of Lord Krishna in a dream and Krishna asked him to go to Vrindavan. Here he found an able Guru in Shri Vallabhacharya, who was an ardent devotee of Lord Krishna. After gaining knowledge of Hindu scriptures, Surdas began to sing devotional songs dedicated to Lord Krishna in Vrindavan. His fame soon reached
Mughal courts and Mughal emperor Akbar became his patron.
Apart from the monumental literary work, Sur Sagar, Surdas is also noted for other literary works like Sur-Saravali and Sahitya-Lahiri.
Surdas was so immersed in Krishna Bhakti that when we read his poems we feel that Surdas was present with Lord Krishna and had a direct knowledge of the Lord’s childhood. Some poems are noted for its moral values and philosophical teachings which are applicable in all ages.
