Devotion is dedication of the self to the All Serene. To Rabindranath Tagore, it is more than mere dedication. It is a vrata to be in perfect unison with the Vratapati, the Lord of askance in sincerity, purity and poignance. To be christened with the spirituality of Tagore in the most intrinsic and poignant pattern is to muse and re-muse his devotional songs, and in doing so, one cannot but discover within oneself the lotus-land of spiritual excellence. Indeed, somewhere in the heartland of everyone lurks the unending beckoning of the All Beautiful. Here are a hundred devotional songs of Rabindranath representing prayer and worship with diverse dimensiions of joy, sorrow, awakening, introspection, aspiration, resolution and so on to encounter the All Beautiful. Hitherto unknown to the national and the global lovers and appreciators of Tagore due to language-constraints, A Hundred Devotional Songs of Tagore, the first of its kind in India and abroad, might be a resourceful and thrilling companion to the study of and quest for devotion.
