MYSTIC MANIFESTATION IN POETRY OF RABINDRANATH TAGORE WITHIN THE EXISTENTIAL CONTEXT OF LIFE.

Nencepreet Kaur, Dr. Manju.

Abstract
The sense in which the poet‟s oeuvre,practical navigation through life and wisdom in the higher realms of cosmic
consciousness amalgamate, bears a definite manifestation of a mystical consciousness in their poetry. We will study
how this manifestation is essentially within the paradigms of existential context in Rabindranath Tagore‟s poetry.
The Concise Oxford Dictionary defines a mystic as “One who believes in spiritual apprehension of truths beyond the
understanding”. However this description of mysticism is in part contemptuous as it lays bare its existence with the
inexplicable, the occult or the fantastic. A mystical bard like Rabindranath Tagore brought the experience of this
realm of mysticism within the very lives that people lead and within the existential paradigms of life itself.
Catherine Spurgeon believes, “Mysticism is, in truth, a temper rather than a doctrine, an atmosphere rather than a
system of philosophy.” The mystic realization of amalgam of the mortal and the absolute wholeness or the divine is
eloquently expressed in the poetry of the mystic poets with relevance within the existential context of life

Key words: While attempting to define what mysticism might be Evellyn Underhill says,“Like the breath of spring, impossible to grasp and difficult to define, it is instinct with fresh life and fertilizes where it goes.”(32)
