Hearty New Year (2017) Greetings and Sankrathi Greetings
to Literary Fraternity and Book - Lovers.
In Sanskrit literature there are two well - known writers
with the name Sriharsha. One was a king (Harshavardhana
7th century AD), a follower of Buddhism and author of three
plays – Nagananda, Priyadarshika and Ratnavali. The
second Sriharsha of 12 Century AD was a Srividya Upasaka
and an eminent poet–scholar. It was he who authored the
famous book Naishadha (The story of Nala and Damayanthi)
in sanskrit. Later, in the 15th Century, Srinatha, The
Legendary Telugu poet, translated it into Telugu metrical
poetry. Srinatha was a Saivite and perhaps was not formally
initiated into the Shakteya form of worship and its praxis.
Srinatha could not decipher the hidden mystery of
Damayanthi conceived by Sriharsha as Sri Devi. It would
seem that it fell to the power of intuition of Seshendra, our
contemporary poet, to unravel the mystery after several
centuries. This is indeed a surprise. Sri Aurobindo’s ‘Savitri:
A legend and a Symbol’ is witness to his being the sacred
privy to Pristine Savitri Mantra. Very similar is Seshendra’s
Golden Swan, which transcends its apparent meaning of
being a mere commentary to niche of mystic trance
committed to words. Thus in his Shodasi: Secrets of the
Ramayana are included Trijata Swapna and Gayatri Mantra
is in itself a mystery. For, apparently in his Shodasi,
Philosopho-poetic intuition, the dream of Trijata (in the
Ashoka Vana) is verily the Gayatri Mantra as discerned by
the deep yogic sensibility of Seshendra (A nigoodha Yogi).
I have had intimate relationship for over six decades with
Seshendra. All who know him admire him for is poetic
|genius but mostly from reading his recent prose and poetry
works. Even so, how many of them who have read Golden
Swan and Shodasi: Secrets of the Ramayana will have seen
the mystic surrounding his poetic vision?
Saatyaki has now requested me to review Swarna Hamsa.
He is devoted to filial adoration. It is only because of this
that volumes of Seshendra’s works are seeing the light of the
day again.
The sacred Mantras: Ajapaa Gayatri, Chintamani are the
common heritage of many upasakas. Not all of them may
have read Sriharsha’s Kavya. Even those who might have
read only now know through Seshendra that Sriharsha is in
reality a Srividya Upasaka.
Srividya, the highest form of devotion to Enlightenment,
which gives liberation (Vimukthi) from the travails of both
the worlds, has its own trinity of Mantra, Yantra and form of
worship. Mantra is called Panchadashi. In this context it
would be helpful to study the commentary on
“chaturbis Sreekanthais Siva yuvatibhih panchabhir api
prabhinna abhis Sambor navabhir api moola prakritibhih
chatus chatwaarimsad vasu dala kalaasra trivalaya
tri raekhaabhis saartham tava Sarana konaah parinataah”
11 Sloka in Shankaracharya’s Soundarya Lahari.
Contemporary literature is beset with many diversities and
divergences. A swan, they say, can separate milk from water.
How many scholars have the calibre to do a swan,
unearthing the inner meaning of the text? Seshendra, like
that mystic swan, did it with aplomb. Because of this unique
quality Seshendra is a Golden Swan.
