Baul Sangit is a songbook
written by Bhaktivinoda Thakura.
He writes twelve songs to preach to the Baul sect in Bengal. The Bauls (lit. “madmen”)
would follow illicit principles even though they would chant the songs of Krsna
and Lord Caitanya. Their core philosophy also differs
with that of Lord Caitanya’s. The songs are written
in the Baul style urging them to change their ways to
be pure at heart and worship Krsna. Bhaktivinoda Thakura signs his name as “Chand Baul” in these songs.
