Event Description

Why does Kabir provoke us to burn down our house? What makes Meera so scornful of palaces? Why does Bulleh Shah want all clocks gone from his home? How does one inhabit the sufi state of ‘la-makaan’ or no-dwelling?

After two invigorating sessions, RS Connect in collaboration with Kabir Project is back with yet another exciting presentation: ‘Jo Ghar Jaare Aapna, Burn Your House Down’

This Sunday, join us for a wonderful evening as poet Prashant Parvataneni weaves these sufi and bhakti songs and ideas and explores the poetics and politics of home.

This is the third in a series of 6 presentations called ‘Thinking With Kabir and Other Mystics’ where we explore the spiritual songs of saint-poets like Kabir, Bulleh Shah, Meerabai, and Shah Latif from the folk oral traditions of India. It is an attempt to see these poems as portals, to think about ideas of faith, freedom, and compassion. In a world plagued by oppressive violence, can the musical voice of the mystics nudge us towards more justly imagined futures?

Come, join us for an evening of exploring mysticism, poetry and songs!
