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.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
