Between the 6th and the 8th years of his reign, Akbar embarked on a spiritual quest, seeking out the company of jogis, sanyasis, and qalandars and other solitary sitters in the dust' and insouciant recluses.

The emperor's unusually contemplative and spiritual turn of mind is emphasized in this illustration. This illustrates one of his visits to Mu'in-ud-din Chishti at Ajmer. The faqir sits in a peaceful manner, clad in a white overflowing robe and a white band tied over his head. He has a flowing beard, his head slightly bent as he makes a gesture of blessing with his right hand. Birds and beasts sit in his abode in peaceful unison. The emperor sits with his legs bent, hands in his lap, one over the other, in complete reverence. He is dressed in all his royal finery. Two of his attendants accompany him; one with a beard seems apparently Muslim and other has a plump face. They too are dressed in long jamas and Akbari turbans. They are, however, base feet in the presence of the faqir. According to court ettiquetes, they stand with their feet together and hands clasped together in front.

That Akbar gained from such visits is a known fact. A son was born to him by the blessings of Salim Chishti and he named him after the saint.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
