Saint Surdas - Times Music presents songs of Saint Surdas. Surdas (1478-1584) was a saint and a composer, who lived in Braj, near Mathura of India. Akbar's books, Ain-e-Akbari and Munshiat-e-Abul-Fazl, mention the life of this great Lord Krishna devotee and his composition of a hundred thousand songs, Sur Sagar, Ocean of Melody, written in praise of Lord Krishna. Only about 8000 of them survive today.These songs, written in Brij Bhasha, a common man's dialect of Hindi language, actually raised the status of that dialect. The poetry is a vivid description of the childhood plays of lord Krishna.Suridas was born blind, and at the age of 6, made to join a group of wandering religious musicians. One night, Lord Krishna came in his dream, and instructed him to go to Vrindavan, and become a saint, singing the Lord's glory.As a teenager, he met his guru, Saint Jagadguru Shrimad Vallabhacharya, and was trained in Hindu philosophy and meditation. As Surdas was a talented singer and composer.
