Book Summary

Sun worship is as primeral in the world as Man himself and its antecedents are virtually lost in hoary antiquity. In the religious consciousness of the Man, the Sun worship is deeply entrenched as the symbol of happiness and prosperity of its votaries. The cult of the Sun-God has sunk so deep into the spiritual existence of Man that, most unwittingly, he ascribed Sun-God with human qualities and for a while the distance between the deity and the votary appears to have paled out into insignificance. This monograph delineates in outline the widespread prevalence of the cult of the Sun-God even in the folk-songs and folk-ballads of Eastern Bengal. The author came across thirteen such long-neglected folk-ballads composed in the praise of the Sun-God. He studied them intensively and highlighted their religious, social and cultural significance. He also translated them into Devanagri as well as English and these translations are contained in the Appendix. The cult of Sun worship is an important as well as significant constituent of Hindu religion and culture. The author identifies some Bengali social customs which resemble very closely to akin social customs prevailing in China, Japan, Tibet, Ceylon, Hungary, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Russia.
