"Lalleshwari, the mystic Shivyogini lived in Kashmir more than 700 years ago. She voyaged as a spiritual seeker, got enlightened and merged ultimately into the universal energy - the Shiva tattva. Traversing the path alone, her sojourn as a spiritual warrior, was unique. A staunch practitioner of Hathyoga, Trika and Sahaj, she lived in blissful spiritual Ecstasy and spread the message of Love. Her messages were simple, revived as "Wakhs" in Kashmiri language. These Wakhs are throbbing in the veins of Kashmir even today, loved and adored by both Hindus and Muslims alike. She is into the lives of Kashmiris, like the fragrance of saffron in the cool breeze of Spring.
This book reveals the divinity and spiritual magnanimity hidden in wakhs. These are pearls of Supreme wisdom, unreaveeled in poetic form, woven into the fabric of everyday life and is a rare treatise for sincere seekers. With the blessings and grace of Gurudev, her Wakhs are unveiled and offered in simple English.
