  • Avadhūta: Examining the Emergence and Institutionalisation of an
           Antinomian Ascetic

      Pages: 241 - 269
      Abstract: AbstractIn numerous historical and contemporary cases, and in various textual and lived traditions, several Hindu ascetics have been called avadhūtas. Yet, there is little scholarly research on this ascetic designation. Based on an ‘iterative’ textual search of early and medieval Hindu texts, this article examines the literary emergence and early reception of the avadhūta ascetic. I argue that the avadhūta label emerged in the late first-millennium CE and was institutionalised within the āśrama system in the early second-millennium CE. I further posit that the avadhūta’s emergence is probably connected to the systematisation of the jīvanmukti or liberation-while-living doctrine, and that the institutionalisation of the antinomian avadhūta ascetic as a legitimate saṃnyāsin or renouncer correlates with two interrelated factors: medieval advaitins defending the avadhūta from anti-jīvanmukti critics and the increasing theological importance of the āśrama system.

  • Pandit Radheshyam’s Ramayan: A sourcebook for Ramlila scripts in the
           orbit of Bareilly

      Pages: 270 - 293
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay recognizes the critical but largely unacknowledged role of the Radheshyam Ramayan in the theatre of Ramlila, which enacts the story of Ram in an annual, multi-day fall festival. Further, this essay illustrates the range of ways the text has been incorporated into Ramlila productions in the orbit of Bareilly, the homeland of the author, Pandit Radheshyam Kathavachak (1890–1963). Since the work was first published serially circa 1908-1924, Ramlila organisers have often turned to it for stirring dialogues, and a narrative template for the plotting of their productions. Based on the author’s participant observation and extensive interviews conducted between 2006 and 2019, this essay argues that the dialogues and plotting in Ramlila productions in the vicinity of Bareilly often owe more to Pandit Radheshyam’s Ramayan than to any other source, including Tulsidas’s sixteenth-century Rāmcaritmānas, despite the fact that the Radheshyam Ramayan was composed for the medium of Vaishnav kathā (devotional storytelling), not Ramlila.

  • ‘Enraged, But Only Out of Love’: Sītā’s Disagreement With Rāma in
           the Ayodhyākāṇḍa of the Vālmīki-Rāmāyaṇa

      Pages: 294 - 343
      Abstract: Abstract:In a moment of great turmoil in the Vālmīki-Rāmāyaṇa (VRām.), Rāma—upon learning of his fourteen-year banishment—attempts to persuade Sītā to stay on in the palace while he will alone proceed into exile. Sītā disagrees entirely with Rāma and argues variously that she should accompany him—until, of course, she succeeds in the end. This is the first moment in the epic when one hears Sītā speak and a careful analysis of her portrayal here is paramount for any serious understanding of her character. Moreover, this episode—of Rāma’s refusal and Sītā’s insistence—when studied closely brings to light various foundational characteristics of their extraordinary relationship. Nevertheless, there are only a handful of studies that have closely engaged with the text’s account of the episode. These few studies also attribute contradictory characteristics to the two protagonists and present entirely contrasting accounts of the situation. I attempt in this paper to demonstrate that an apposite understanding can be attained through a literary analysis of the verses, focusing on the motivating emotions mentioned plainly in the text itself. I argue that Sītā’s disagreement is not grounded in emotional frailty, male honour, or even political fear. Rather, the essential sentiment which permeates this entire episode, including Rāma’s final acceding to Sītā’s request, is—for the VRām.—love.

  • From Oral Tradition to Digital Archive: New Primary Sources for the Study
           of Baul Traditions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 344 - 371
      Abstract: AbstractPractitioners’ notebooks and personal letters are neglected items that deserve attention in the study of ritual and performance traditions, especially if these can be complemented with oral–aural sources. This article presents some features of an unexplored archive of new sources for the study of Baul songs and popular religious movements in Bengal by introducing and complementing the data contained in the digital archive called ‘Songs of the Old Madmen’ (EAP1247, British Library), comprising notebooks of Baul songs and correspondence between an influential Bengali guru and his disciple. I highlight three aspects. (i) The notebook as archive and metadata of Baul performances. (ii) Emic notions of authorship and cultural ownership. (iii) The contextualisation of the digital archive within the history of representation of the Baul tradition. Embedded in such context, this digital archive provides a nuanced and intimate picture where Baul practitioners emerge as neither the lonely minstrels lauded by Rabindranath Tagore, nor as the antinomian materialists portrayed in more recent scholarship on Bauls. Questioning the politics of cultural representation of digital archives, this article integrates oral histories and ethnographic sources collected during fieldwork in West Bengal that are inextricably part of the material digitised through remote capture.
