Shah Husain (Makers of Indian Literature)
Shah Husain (Makers of Indian Literature)
Description

From the Back of the Book

Shah Husain is one of the greatest Punjabi Sufi poets of the 16th century. Being a malamati Sufi, Shah Husain neither exhibits the goodness of his inner world, nor conceals his shortcomings. He may have an irreligious exterior but in reality he is truly religious. He introduced Kafi in Punjabi Sufi Literature for the first time and shared his spiritual enlightenment with the people of Punjab. He chose symbols from village life which were quite close to the village folk. The use of such symbols mode his Kafis more effective, more receptive, more intelligible and beautiful, though written about four hundred years back these Kafis continue to exude the same sweetness and freshness and their fragrance will always keep the hearts and minds of the readers afresh.

Sufi mysticism is his field of specialization. He is the author of number of books in this field.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
