About the CD

Ghazal is a poetic form consisting of couplets with a rhyme and a refrain where each line shares the same poetic metre. This form is considered to be an ancient tradition originating in 10th century Persian verse. It is said to be derived from the Arabian Panegyric Qasida. In style and content it is a genre which has proved to have an extraordinary variety of expression around its central themes of love and separation it is one of the principal poetic forms the indo perso Arabic civilization offered to the eastern Islamic world.

The spread of ghazals into south Asia happened in the 12th century under the influence of the new Islamic Sultanate courts and sufi Mystics. Ghazals were written by the Persian mystics and poets Jalalal-din Muhammad Rumi & Hafez. Great poets like Mirza Ghalib and Iqbal wrote Ghazals in both Persian Urdu.

The evolution of ghazals form a poetic form into a genre of light classical music can be traced to the early 20th century many of its early ecponents were classically trained singers who specialized in Khayal and thumri style of singing however unlike classical music ghazals have become popular with the common man because of its magical combination of beautiful lyrics and dulcet voices.

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.
