Bhakti: The Art of Devotion
Dec 10, 2016 | 2:00 pm
Archana Venkatesan, Rafiq Kathwari, and Ravi Shankar engage in a discussion concerning the poetics of Bhakti, the Sanskrit word meaning “to participate in, to share in, and to have love and devotion for.” Together, they examine Indian art and spirituality, spanning the linguistic worlds of Tamil and Urdu literature, and how it manifests in their own work in translation. Join Poets House as we unpack the complex prosody, rich cultural history, and rhetorical nuance of Indian verse.
Followed by Beyond Bhakti: Contemporary Spiritual Poetics Across Europe and The Americas
