Mystic Eros is designed a cultural document on comparative medievalpoetry, philosophy, religion and esoteric thoughts after anexhaustive analysis of the concepts of Eros and Kama in the Westernand Indian traditions respectively. Eros as longing of thesickening soul in Neoplatonism is metamorphosed into mystic-Eros inthe Middle Ages, and while ascending the various steps of the chainof Eros, the soul experiences a constant oscillation between thesacred and the profane. With the Troubadours of medieval France,Eros is viewed as a binding force that trends to bridge the gapbetween sense and spirit within the periphery of country love(amour courtois)-a powerful plea for refined sensuality. Passion,ofter treated by preachers and theologians a a notorious element,is viewed as a pure and purifying emotion by the Troubadours. Lyingthe Troubadours, the Buddhist-Tantric-Sahajiya Vaisnava poetsmetamorphosed kama into prema and devised an eleborateerotic-mystic ritual of ragasadhana (culture of love). TheTroubadour technique of donnoi deification of courtly lady (domna)and esoteric progresssion (Eros-Amor-Jois) has been finallyjuxtaposed with the Vaisnavite ladder of kama-prema-maha-sukhaafter a comparative analysis of the lyrics of Trobadours andVaisnava poets of medieval India.Printed Pages: 292.
