About the CD

With the birth of Hazrat Shah Hussain in the year 1538, the world of mystic poetry witnessed a tremendous upheaval. His devotion to God was a priceless example of surrender. In his rare genius one witnessed the epitome of piety.

Historians differ on his origins. While same insist that Shah Hussain was born outside Texali gate alongside the river Ravi, others claim that he was born in Dhadhi village in Pind Dadan khan of the Jhelum district. The first Punjabi poet whose Kalam included the mixture of Punjabi with Pothohari Hindi, Persian and Arabic Shah Hussain’s Kafees are effortlessly worded poetry so simple that the message is conceived easily.

His poetry revolves around his pursuit of the knowledge of God and discovering our own selves in that context. Such was his dedication that he one broke all rules of the Shariah to find the truth about Tasawuf. Because of this there are many that claim that he was a Malamati who had shaved his head and refused to go to the mosque.

Often he called himself Hussain Julaha, Hussain Namana Hussain faqeer and shah Hussain in his poetry. Amidst the fold poetry it is suddenly the voice of Hussain himself apparently humanized with the voice of the folk singer and yet transcending it. The voice of Shah Hussain brings into being the dimesion of freedom rendering actual what had for long remained only possible. Freedom for the folk singer and the poet himself… his work is a romantic celebration of all the symbols of the rich Sufi heritage.

Hazrat Shah Hussein was 63 when he passed away leaving behind legacy of Sufiana poetry. He was buried in Shahadara from where after 13 years his body was exhumed and re buried at Babupura now known as Baghabanpura after the ricer Ravi changed its course while flooding his grave in Shahdara. It is said that his staunch follower Madhu after whom shah Hussain was also called Madhu Lal Hussein was also buried next to him.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
