Nizamat Jung Prologue | A Critical Analysis

‘Prologue’ by Nizamat Jung is a mystic poem through which the poet expresses the union of his soul with the Divine Soul. A mystic is one who believes in the oneness or likeness of the human soul with the soul of nature and the soul of God. More he believes that the human soul can communicate with the soul of God not by physical perception but by mental feeling.

First, the poet says that he met the Divine Soul in open nature while he was wandering alone being wearied of human society through desert tracts at silent night. He saw the Divine Soul in front of him and he chased Him. But he could not catch or embrace the Divine Soul as it was like a shadow and as fast as he chased it so fast it ran away. The poet’s soul was wandering seeking the Soul of God with a view to uniting with Him in this life and afterworld.

After chasing sometime, the poet saw that the Divine Being suddenly stood before him. It was like a spirit but, in form was like a human being. Its eyes emitted light and sang the music of heaven. Then the poet’s soul and the divine soul got united. And then the poet felt that the soul of God was in him. In other words, to say, the poet felt that there was no difference between his soul and the soul of God.

The mystic theme is a subject of the human heart and feeling only. It is above intellectual reason and argument. It is the highest state of human feeling. It is a spiritual as well as religious belief. Mystic communication is not possible through meditation only. So only the highly pious-hearted religious men can claim to have seen the Divinity in nature through the eyes of the heart; not through the eyes of skin and flesh. In this respect, the poem ‘Prologue’  as analyzed above is a perfect mystic poem.

The language of the poem is simple. Therefore the poet Nizamat Jung has employed some phrases in the poem which are compound and figurative in meaning as desert tracts of silence and night; chasing shadowy forms that mock and flee etc. 0 0 0
