Propagation of Truth through Beauty of Religion in Aesthetics in study of Rabindranath Tagore
Indian aesthetics is truthfully based on the Satyam, Shivam and sundaram. Every aesthete follows this concept while presenting his idea on aesthetics. Rabindranath Tagore has explored his ideas of Indian aesthetics in all his works but present study delves into his selected plays- Chitra, Malini, Ascetic and Sacrifice with close penetration. This discussion shows not only the aesthetic joy based on the religious traditions of Indians but also deals with the religious ideology, spirituality, symbolic significance and mythical approach in religious aesthetics and fulfillment of spiritual quest. His plays explore the basic themes of relationship of God and human soul, of God and nature, of nature and the human soul, of the individual soul and humanity. The informing spirit of all these themes is Tagore’s profound humanism which makes his mysticism warmly mundane and meaningful. The myths employed by Rabindranath Tagore are borrowed from nature, ancient civilization, and old literature and Indian Hindu scripture. Tagore seems to be real aesthete while showing the concept the Indian aesthetics in all its form. Thus the proposed study will investigate the basic concepts of religious aesthetics and aims to be convert the religious orthodoxy of myths into the meaningful way to acquire the spirituality along with truth in beauty of religion.
