IN SEARCH OF JOY
How is joy between man and God?
"The Ode of Joy", both Schiller's verses and Beethoven's music may surprise out of Europe, for instance as "folklore" in a program of Korean minority in China, or during the mess in any church in the world. Religious joy and human search for it are subject to some gene indicating the type of God according to inborn creed. Can indeed one change religion inherited from parents with a new one belonging to the other? Can one live down the joy of a belief with another quite different from the former? Has a man as Panait Istrati writes four lives in one? Is child Krishna in Mathura, the seducer Govinda-cowboy in Vrindavana, and coachman of Arjuna in Kurukushetra war of Mahabharata one and the same god, one and the same man? The fear turns into joy especially when music and dance, poetry and drama, prayer and silent meditation, all beauty of the world energizes the happening of life and death. The joy of death is not compulsory for heroes or avatars, but an epitome of purpose of man in the world, eventually his Dasein, with Heidegger's concept.
In fact, it is difficult enough to follow the joy on life or in a specific culture. It is like a lie in front of truth or sorrow. Or is it the truth itself in some momentary eternities of perishing being? One can die out of joy, other can enjoy death of many or few. How can be conceived the joy of a murderer? How can be compared to the joy of the victim? If everybody kills everybody, while God is dead, what more remains for joy? Who says let no human realization including self-killing, be out of joy like a black hole.
The city of Florence is giving joy to mankind. If only its lilies will remain after Apocalypse some joy is still flourishing. Some girls are called Gioia. La Blache Ophélia flotte comme un grand lys. (Rimbaud).
The Apocalypse has in its name the very lady author of Pralaya, Kali, mother and destroyer of the world, giver of joy.
Anthropology of Non Recognition
There is no need to say that making literature as anthropology and anthropology as literature one loses one’s chance to be recognized within either of them. But the theme of recognition itself can be a joint topic, on top of it may be Kalidasa’s “Recognition of Sakuntala” (Abhijnan Sakuntalam). Even after some two thousands or one thousand and a half years it seems that Dushyanta recognizes his deserted wife almost for the sake of their child, successor to the throne.
A XIX century’s replica is Cãlin, poem by Mihai Eminescu, in which the recognition of the deserted bride, after years, starts by meeting the child.
Philosophy of recognition in modern times includes patterns drawn by Hegel, Pascal or Lacan. An anthropology of recognition would record also discrimination between cultures and their representatives to the extent of cultural cannibalism, colonialism-globalism, glocalocalism, etc. To be recognised during or after demise is very little related to one’s will. It seems rather an outer concept. It is quite hard to enjoy the non-recognition, but after all, then it is time to find God. Does God recognise a person unrecognised even by self? Is it possible to get God’s message when all expectations are transformed in lost obsession of Divinity?
Two poems of different ages and others reveal the devotion-recognition to Goddess or simply Woman. Shankaracharya’s Saundaryalahari and Dylan Thomas The Ballad of Long Legged Bait are almost at the antipodes one from the other, yet they may meet either in Shakta cult or in surrealistic mysticism of woman. Sanskrit worshipper makes a cosmic prayer to the Divine Mother on the whole and part by part, while the Welsh ballad writer thinks of woman in pieces thorn apart by sharks and lovers. While the religion – recognition of Uma, Daughter of Himalaya attracts hotly tantric and advaitin followers, the woman-bait is recognisable only through song recreation of the victim in tune with legions of raped and kidnapped heroines like, for instance: Kira Kiralina of Romanian ballads and Panait Istrati’s novels, in which the heroine kills herself in order not to be captured by the rapists. In another ballad by Ionel Zeana, hundred virgins chose to kill themselves instead of entering the harem of the invaders.
The woman is recognised as Goddess and as a bait almost in the spiritual inspiration, once an enthusiastic devotion, twice even still more literary as empathic ballad. The joy and sorrow come together as the characters are concerned, but both works convey either advaita-nondual, or Donne’s love canonization in the same move as prayer and chatarsis causes- effects.
From thousand to thousand years, from Sakuntala to Saundaryalahari and ballad Goddess-bait other characters and feelings are transformed or forgotten also as recognition of the fact that recognition is not possible.
LA GIOIA (Avoiding murder by life)
Toward ending a novel entitled La Gioia, an own life, dedication “per la citta di Firenze” appeared in mind both as appropriate in ICAES context and as key in a possible thriller form according rather to reception than original narration. The character Gioia, if real, belongs to Florence, if invented, is an anthropologist’s thrill, i.e. late Romulus Vulcanescu. Out of three sons, during the years, two hanged themselves, the oldest one, Mihu, did it in Florence, after Uffizzi was bombed and his nearby accommodation was spoiled. Woman Gioia fictionally suspected by anthropologist, became la Gioia, as life, free of murder. The paper continues the novel with an anthropological open epilogue eventually in Indore, India, and back in Firenze.
Kali and Barbara
Black Goddess Kali is beyond my series of anthropological novels Indian Apokalipse, while Barbara is an unanswered name. Indeed, when once I asked poet Gheorghe Pitut, what’s the name of your daughter? His answer was, I don’t tell you. Even I had ready more than one novel, the series started, by chance, via Paris, with Medea (Mother Medea in Paris). Was Medea another Kali or simply Barbara? But trying to enumerate the titles of the series I missed one: Fear of the Orient, either of long time since written, or rather because of global deconstruction including Orient-Occident double. Having not what to fear anymore because of unanswered names in the theme of this paper.
Esoterica Left For Fiction
It was the case of young Patricia. She came to Balkans and proposed to the IUAES, in 80’s, a commission of the body which was actually the theme of 2002 Inter-Congress in Tokyo. She invited me in New Jersey for two paid conferences on situation in Romania and also took me in a drive among Washington facts of arms. She told she left esoterica and started writing stories. I read and commented for her next day, missing some deer. It was my last day in my first America (esoterica). For some reasons I was called in the evening by madame Esthère who urged me never search Patricia in order to be forgiven.
The paper opposes some literary works of anthropologists and anthropological works of writers. With special references to Lucian Blaga and Seamus Heaney.
Hanuman and Baudelaire in Mauritius
Hanuman belongs to humankind as well as to divine lore of lord Rama. His faithfulness and brave cleverness are epic epitome of a sanctity soldier. Out of India, his worship turns into a consciousness of radical ecumenism through which such fantastic, sometimes humorous monkey-man-god gives happiness to everyone in his/her own way of life and expectation.
Speaking on Hanuman in the islands of Mauritius, surrounded by larger ocean – Tagore’s ocean of silence – no fighting anymore a demon ruling another island, but demons inside ourselves, I remember a young rebel embarked by his forester father for India in punishment, and left by the captain of ship in Mauritius to collect him and return. He eventually remained in modern time an epitome of cursed poet, claming, for instance in A une malabaraise, Indian atmosphere for what was, in fact, his imagination in Mauritius. From here, both Hanuman and Baudelaire guide us to faith.
In Search Of Joy
Florence, XVth ICAES, July 2003
Wulf And Eadwacer
It is to my people as if one gave them an offering.
Will they feed him, if he feel want?
It is not so with us.
Wulf is on an island, I on another;
Closely begirt is that island with bog;
Cruel men are there on the island;
Will they feed him, if he should feel want?
It is not so with us.
I waited for my Wulf with far-wandering yearnings,
When it was rainy weather and I sat weeping.
When the warlike man wound his arms about me,
It was pleasure to me, yet it was also pain.
Wulf, my Wulf, my yearnings for thee
Have made me sick, thy rare visits,
A woeful heart and not want of food.
Does thou hear,Eadwacer? Our cowardly cub
Wulf shall bear off to the wood.
They can easily sunder that which was never joined
The song of us two together.
Show Me, Dear Christ, Thy Spouse, So Bright And Clear
Show me, dear Christ, thy spouse, so bright and clear
What! is it she, which on the other shore
Goes richly painted? or which rob’d and tore
Laments and mourns in Germany and here?
Sleep she a thousand, then peeps up one year?
Is she self truth, and errs? now new, now
Doth she, and did she, and shall she evermore
On one, on seven, or on no hill appear?
Dwells she with us, or like adventuring knights
First travaile we to seek and then make love?
Betray, kind husband, thy spouse to our sights,
And let my amorous soul court thy mild dove,
Who is most true, and pleasing to thee, then
When she’s embrac’d and open to most men.
R. Raj Rao
I, Raj Rao, 32
Am a festering poet worn to the bone.
Lice live in my hair, mice have bitten my toes.
I have protruding teeth, a fungoid groin.
I smell like a horse.
My nails with which I sometimes scratch my
Are grown and black in my and twisted out of
There are holes in my teeth that let out slime.
I am a yahoo in sex: I drink even your urine.
My beard is a stubble.
My feet are huge with patches of white.
The sputum in my throat poisons the air.
Worms crawl in my stomach.
I belch in public, retch after meals.
I think every day of death.
Awakened by nightmares, I often howl at
I claw at my hair, byte my own flesh
And scream until my voice cords snap,
Smashing everything I can lay my hands on.
(From An Anthology of New Indian English Poetry, Edited by Marakand Paranjape, Rupa & Co, Calcutta, 1993)
The Farewell To The Brethren Of
St. James’s Lodge, Tarbolton
ADIEU! A heart-warm, fond adieu!
Dear brothers of the mystic tie!
Ye favour’d, ye enlighten’d Few
Companions of my social joy!
Tho’ I to foreign lands must hie,
Pursuing Fortune’s slidd’ry ba’
With melting heart, and brimful eye,
I’ll mind you still, tho’ far awa’.
Oft have I met your social Band,
And spent the cheerful, festive night;
Oft, honor’d with supreme command,
Presided o’er the Sons of light:
And by that Hierogliphic bright,
Which none but Craftsmen ever saw!
Strong mem’ry on my heart shall write
Those happy scenes when far awa’!
May Freedom, Harmony and Love
Unite you in the grand Design,
Beneath th’ Omniscient Eye above,
The glorious ARCHITECT Divine!
That you may keep th’ unerring line,
Still rising by the plummet’s law,
Till Order bright completely shine,
Shall be my Pray’r when far awa’!
And You, farewell! Whose merit claim,
Justly, that highest badge to wear!
Heave’n bless your honor’d, noble Name,
To MASONRY and SCOTIA dear!
A last request permit me here,
When yearly ye assemble a’,
One round, I ask it with a tear,
To him, the Bard, that’s far awa’!
(From British Poets and Secret Societies, by Marie Roberts, Croom Helm, London, 1986)
A Song Of The Rosy-Cross
He who measures gain and loss,
When he gave to thee the Rose,
Gave to me alone the Cross;
When the blood-red blossom blows
In a wood of dew and moss,
There thy wandering pathway goes,
Mine were waters brood and toss;
Yet one joy have I, hid close,
He who measures gain and loss,
When he gave to thee the Rose,
Gave to me alone the cross.
Nature’s beauty is an art of God.
Let us feel the touch of God’s invisible
hands, in everything beautiful.
By the first touch of His hand rivers
throb and ripple.
When he smiles the sun shines, the
moon glimmers, the stars twinkle, the
By the first rays of the
rising sun, the universe is stirred;
The shining gold is sprinkled on the
smiling of buds of rose;
The fragrant air is filled with sweet
melodies of singing birds;
The dawn is the dream of God’s
Ye cows, you fatten the emaciated,
And you make the unlovely look beautiful,
Make our house happy, you with pleasant
Your power is glorified in our assemblies
(From The Holy Vedas, Pandit Satyakam Vidyalankar, Clarion Books, Delhi, 1983)
Why do you live alone
On the seashore battered by fierce winds?
My sin is great
That I must see you thus.
Handsome Lord at Kotikkulakar,
who keeps you company here?
It is because you once
devoured the ocean’s poison
that you now favor Paravai, the sea?
Handsome youth at Kotikkulakar,
bordered by bush groves,
why do you live alone here, my Lord?
O supreme Lord who lives south of joyful
where many devotees sing your praise,
Handsome Youth at Kotikkulakar,
where flowering groves abound,
why do you live alone, my Lord?
This is a great wilderness
resounding with the hoot of the owl,
which terrifies the beautiful Goddess;
cruel wicked hunters live here.
Handsome Lord at Kotikkulakar,
why have you made for yourself
a temple in this place?
You who share your body
with your spouse with long, kohl-darkened
Lady Ganges lives in the same frame.
Tell me why you have taken
yet another companion,
the Lady of the Forest,
with bracelets on her wrists,
to live with you
in the temple of Kotikkulakar
with blossoming groves?
Sharing your form with the Goddess
whose mound of Venus is like a cobra,
you dwell south of Maraikkatu
fragrant with maravam trees.
Handsome Youth of Kotikkulakar
full of kuravam groves,
my Lord, you live alone
with darkness for your friend.
Dear ambrosia who dances
with the sounding warrior’s ring,
the music of drum and flute,
Handsome Youth of Kotikkulakar
bordered by flourishing groves.
O God, why do you live alone, my Lord?
Did you find Orriyur a mortgaged town?
Did you leave Arur,
thinking it a strange place?
O Handsome Youth crowned with the young
my Lord of Kotikkulakar,
why do you live alone?
Though Vishnu the Strider
and the god with four heads
could not measure your form,
you wander as a homeless beggar.
Is this the reason, o Lord,
that you have made your temple
on the shore where wild hunters live?
Those who know these ten verses
composed by the poet of Arur
in praise of the handsome young Lord
of Kotikkulakar, the shrine at land’s end,
south of Maraikkatu and many other towns on
will surely abide in Shiva’s glorious world.
(From Poems to Siva. The Hymns of the Tamil Saints. Indira Viswanatham Peterson, Motilal Banarsidas, Delhi, 1991 / Princeton University Press, 1989)
Garabi / The Song Of The Dance
Today we found joy in our hearts,
through the worship of the True Guide, o!
Do not be led astray, o foolish folk,
but take the secret into your hearts.
These temples and idols are a
deceit, so why revolve in this circle?
Worship the True Guide, the Light, the
Light, for the Guide is the Glorious Lord.
If you regularly offer the tithe in full,
you will be gainfully rewarded.
Those perfect believers will rule
who proceed upon the True Path.
You may dance by day and night,
but nothing will be achieved.
All these idols are of stone, and
they do not speak at all.
Why do you let yourself be led astray in
vain, where these are man-made objects?
The deity of dance is false, for
where is Bhavani found in it?
It is the divine Guide whose power
is complete, for it is there that they all dwell.
See how false all the worldly creatures
are, whom you have known since birth.
Accept Ali as the true manifestation,
and you will gain your reward.
Your sins and faults will be removed,
and you will attain high station.
Thus did the true Guide explain the
truth to them, but they did not recognize it.
All the people listened to him,
then spoke in replay:
If you come tomorrow night,
let us dance together.
Pir Shamas the Guide spoke thus:
“Proceed in awareness, o!”
(From Ismaili Hymns from South Asia. An Introduction to Ginans. Cristopher Shakle and Zawahir Moir, Curzom, 2000/ 1992,Unesco)
Translation by J.Muir
Then there was neither Aught nor Naught, no air nor
What covered all? Where rested all? In watery gulf
Nor death was there, nor deathlessness, nor change of
night and day.
That one breathed calmly, self-sustained; naught else
beyond it lay.
Gloom hid in gloom existed first – one sea eluding view.
The One, a void in chaos wrapt, by inward fervor
Within it first arose desire, the primal germ of mind,
Which nothing with existence links, as sages searching
The kindling ray that shot across the dark and drear
Was it beneath? or high aloft? what bard can answer
Those fecundating powers were found, any mighty
forces strove –
A self-supporting mass beneath, and energy above.
Who knows, who ever told, from whence this vast
No gods had then been born – who then can e’er truth
Whence sprang this world and whether framed by hand
divine or no –
It’s Lord in heaven alone can tell, if even he can show.
(From Invitation to Indian Philosophy. T. M. Mahadevan. Arnold Heinemann, 1974, 1982.)
Apud D. H. Lawrence
(Cipriano with Evening Star and all Eminescu. Marchesa. Aaron’s Rod vs Blow-Up)
Florence-Firenze-Fiorenze – the flowery town; the red
lilies. The Fiorentini, the flower souled. Flowers with good
roots in the mud and
muck, as should be; and fearless blossoms
in air like the cathedral and tower of David.
I love the cathedral and the tower. I love its pinkness
and its paleness, it is delicate and rosy, and
the dark stripes are as they should be, like the
tiger marks on a pink lily. It is a lily not
a rose: a pinky white lily with dark tigery marks.
And heavy too, in its own substance: earth-substance
risen from earth into the air; and never forgetting
the dark, black fierce earth – I reckon here men
for a moment were themselves, as a plant in
flower is for the moment completely itself.
Final Of Ballad Of The Long-Legged Bait
Down, down, down, under the ground,
Under the floating villages,
Turns the moon-chained and water-wound
Metropolis of fishes,
There is nothing left of the sea but its sound,
Under the earth the land sea walks,
In death beds of orchards the boat dies down
And the bait is drowned among hayricks,
Land, land, land, nothing remains
Of the pacing, famous sea but its speech,
And into its talkative seven tombs
The anchor dives through the floors of a church.
Good-bye, good luck, struck the sun and the moon,
To the fisherman lost on the land.
He stands alone at the door of his home,
With his long-legged heart in his hand.

(Joy Alone Is Ours)
We are slaves to no man,
nor do we fear death.
Hell holds no torments,
we know no deceit.
We rejoice, we are strangers to disease,
we bow to none.
Joy alone is ours, not sorrow,
for we belong for ever
to Sankara, who is the supreme Lord,
our king who wears the white conch earring on
and we have reached
his beautiful, flower-fresh feet.
The wide world is our home,
generous householders in every town
give us food.
Public halls are our only shelter; we sleep
in Goddess Earth’s loving embrace –
all this is true.
The Lord of the warlike bull has taken us.
We lack nothing, our trials are over now.
Why need we listen to the words
of men who parade themselves in silk and
We are innocent men.
We do not consort with women;
we rise before down to bathe
and chant Mahadeva’s name,
our sole ornament is the sacred ash.
Tears, wailing from our eyes like monsoon
proclaim the melting of our stony hearts.
Why need we obey the commands
of kings who ride on elephants?
We are free from bonds!
Shiva devotees are our only kin,
we wear nothing but the waistband and the
Even our enemies cannot harm us;
all evil is turned into good for us,
and we never will be born again.
Our tongues chant “Hail Shiva!”
good name of the Lord
with the sweet, golden konrai wreath.
We are devotees of the Lord
whose blazing forehead eye
reduced crocodile-bannered Kama to ashes.
We will yield to no man;
none on earth can equal us.
We do not follow small gods,
we belong to Lord Shiva’s feet alone.
Surely we lack nothing!
Deadly disease has fled, leaving us untouched.
We live on the merit
of having taking refuge
in the good Lord who is crowned
with a garland of skulls.
They alone may rule us,
whose tongues chant the name
of Shiva with the holy coral-red form,
the Lord whom the thirsty-three gods
and all beings praise
as the first among the three,
the eight-formed deity.
Even if the king of this entire rose-apple land
were to command us,
we need no obey –
we are not criminals or thieves.
Our sole duty is joyfully to sing
the glory of him who manifests himself
as the moving and the still,
as earth, water, fire, wind, and sky,
as the small and the great,
as hard to reach, yet easily attained
by his lovers,
as the highest reality, immeasurably great,
as infinite Sadashiva, as you and me.
Why should we parrot the words of devils?
We are blameless men.
Every day we meditate only on the Lord,
ruler of all the worlds,
king of Himalayan gods,
him who blazed up as fire,
god who bears the white ash on his red body,
good lover of the mountain’s beautiful
We have since long renounced the doctrines
that the Jains, who eat standing,
had taught us.
Who are you to us?
And who is your king?
The Lord with the matted hair
and the conch earring on one ear,
with his body adorned by the ash and the
bull rider clad in the tiger skin
and the silver-spotted skin of the deer –
he is the king who rules us, you see!
We are not servants of the king who
you and all his troupes –
we are free from all bounds!
We have the good fortune of singing our Lord
to our hearts’ content,
of repulsing the shameless Jain monks.
The king of immortals,
the Lord who graciously rules us,
Shiva, the god of gods, who rose as the flame
which Ayan and Mal could not know,
dwells in my heart.
If death himself were to declare
his dominion over us and command us to serve
we would refuse,
for the Lord’s eight attributes are ours.
