About the Book

The poetry of Bulleh Shah (1680–1758), a great Sufi saint of Punjab, has had enduring appeal over the centuries, inspiring fresh interpretations and garnering new converts to this day. His poems are as full of emotional intensity and passionate fervour, as they are of rebellion and rage against religious dogma. They will force the reader into deep reflections on the purpose of life and the certainty of death, and at the same time inspire spiritual longing and mystical ecstasy. In this volume, Manjul Bajaj interprets the imagery and symbols, metaphors and motifs of Bulleh Shah's verses for the modern reader and presents a hundred of his poems in a fresh and lucid English translation.
