Bhakti movement and ITS impact on Indian literature

Author(s): Dr. Suman Ahlawat

Abstract: India's religious and cultural traditions would be impossible to imagine without the foundation of bhakti. Bhakti has evolved to define a way of life for a large number of people in India, whereas the philosophical schools of thought are limited to the country's elite. By making God more accessible, the movement had a significant impact on society. The Bhakti movement, a sociocultural mass movement that originated in South India around the eighth and ninth centuries AD and expanded to the North throughout the mediaeval era, was an outgrowth of that region's religious and cultural climate. It sparked a backlash against the established order of dense intellectual musings. To reach out to the overwhelming mass of people who had hitherto been kept outside the strict framework of Sanskritic tradition, it took on the shape of a protest against the dividing walls of caste, creed, colour, and race. With its pan-Indian perspective and welcoming attitude, it inspired a wealth of devotional writing, music, and song that revitalised India's spiritual life.
