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.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
