Bāula-matera Vicāra 
(A Discussion on the Beliefs of the Bāulas)

Bāula-matera Vicāra (A Discussion on the Beliefs of the Bāulas) was published in 1892 in Sajjana Toṣaṇī, Vol. 4 Issue 4. A reader had sent five queries in regards to the ideology of the Bāulas (a popular sect of pseudo-Vaiṣṇavas in Bengal) and Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura replied to these questions in brief. A year later, in 1893, the Ṭhākura wrote his famous Bāula Saṅgīta, a series of 12 songs exposing the debauchery and philosophical deviations of the Bāulas.
