Ram Sharma Bhagobati Gita | A Critical Analysis

‘Bhagobati Gita’ by Ram Sharma is a mystic poem on mother-goddess, Durga. In the poem, the poet has expressed his mystic experience with Durga and then he praises her as the mother of all beings.

The poet says that on a Dewali night he was sitting alone in his dimly lighted chamber and was meditating on the mystic power in whose honour the feast of light was held. Suddenly a flame appeared in front of him changing the dimness into a perfect blaze. The poet did not heed to that striking glow of height but still mused on and saw a child whose head was encircled with a crown of glory. It seemed brighter than the sun, even milder than the moon. This radiant child, in a sweet, musical voice as the lute of Sarasvati, said to the poet:

”Poor Martal! She whom thou hast striven to find

Through weary years of anxious quest and toil

The virgin –Mother –Single Wife in one-

Before three stands.  Art thou my son, content?”

The poet gazed and gazed at that vision then again the vision spoke to the poet. While the poet sought to lift the veil of that child, she said that the poet should not try to unveil the screen because the poet would not be able to endure the terror of the vision. So she advised the poet not to lift her veil and she also asked if the poet need any boon from her. Saying so, the vision of Durga disappeared.

The remaining portion of the poem is the hymn in praise of Durga. The poet writes that Durga is the Mother and primeval Force of all things and beings. Her power is eternal. She is life and she is dead also. Both life and death are the rhythmic variations of her breast. She sheds countless orbs of light. The universe is hers. She maintains law and harmony in the universe. At last, the poet shows his devotion to her saying: ‘salutation, salutation ever unto thee’.

From the above analysis of the poem, it becomes explicitly clear that the poet was deeply fed in Hindu scriptures and Hindu philosophy. But he adds mysticism to that philosophy and then transcribed them into poetry.

Like his other poems, the language of it is also simple and spontaneous. He uses fewer figures of speech but the matter of the poem itself serves as its imagery. 0 0 0
