About the Book

In the eyes of the world, Rabindranath Tagore is celebrated as the illustrious bard of Bengal, a name that resonates globally. His literary works and philosophy have touched the hearts of generations, leaving an enduring legacy. Yet, hidden behind the timeless verses and laurels lies a lesser-known truth. Throughout his life, Tagore sought the company of saints, a quest that profoundly enriched his spirit. These personal encounters with India’s spiritual luminaries, however, remained concealed in silence, unspoken and unwritten. It was Bipul Kumar Gangopadhyay, a renowned figure in India’s spiritual and literary realms, whose determination and relentless research culminated in Sadhu Sannidhey Rabindranath, a Bengali masterpiece that reveals Tagore’s intimate experiences with nineteen sages. Rabindranath Tagore Among Saints is the first-ever English translation of these sacred encounters. This book illuminates the profound spirituality that shaped the sage poet’s journey, offering readers a fresh perspective on the man revered as Gurudev by Mahatma Gandhi. It invites you on a spiritual pilgrimage to the inner sanctum of a literary giant’s soul.
