An eminent poet and mystic, Baba Bulleh Shah is the quintessential Sufi, drenching, drowning and losing himself in divine fervour, intense love and passion for the Lord. Once an erudite intellectual, a scholar who only knew dry words, but not their true essence, it was the life-transforming encounter with his master, Hazrat Inayat Shah Qadri which made the wellspring of divine love erupt in Bulleh Shah’s heart. And it was only then that the inner flowering, the blossoming of divine joy happened, culminating in the heartfelt, intoxicating expression of rapturous poetry and divine dance. In this remarkable collection of profound discourses on Baba Bulleh Shah’s life, poetry and teachings, revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa brings alive the intense devotion, purity of heart and depth of reverence that Bulleh Shah embodied towards his adored master. Every anecdote and incident reveals the ecstasy and longing for inner communion and is immensely inspirational to all those who seek to know themselves at a deeper level. This unique DVD set is a compilation of the profound discourses on Baba Bulleh Shah given by beloved master Anandmurti Gurumaa during the meditation retreat in Rishikesh in 2001.

The tenth chapter has already been initiated in the beginning of the ninth chapter which emphasised upon immense love for the Lord and Guru. Beautifully describing the glories and vastness of the Lord, here the revered master explains the stages of enlightenment and reveals that it is the all-pervasiveness of Krishna which inspires the determination, longing, seeking, austerities and all that a seeker does to be one with the Lord.

It exquisitely unravels how it was the vividness of the words of Krishna which created the form perceived by Arjuna and not the mortal form.
Further, the twelfth chapter brings to light the two aspects of devotion i.e. nirguna or saguna. It establishes the fact that until and unless you know Krishna in his real formless form, you cannot get established in Krishna.

Fifteenth chapter demystifies the purpose of Vedic wisdom with the help of an analogy of a tree which has its roots in the sky and branches on the ground and Vedas are its leaves. Sadgurudev Anandmurti Gurumaa has mystically explained how the branches are going upwards and downwards, creating and covering this whole world. And it is only with the weapons of vairagya and viveka that the roots of this tree can be cut i.e. one can be freed from the delusion of this samsara. This is possible only with devotion and surrender to the omniscient and omnipresent Lord.
Sixteenth chapter describes in detail the divine and demoniac nature, and how the divine qualities are conducive to liberation whereas the demoniac qualities lead to bondage. Following this up is the seventeenth chapter wherein Arjuna enquires from Krishna about what happens to those who do not follow the principles laid down in the scriptures but do worship a certain deity. Explaining the answer as given by the Lord, the revered master has lucidly explicated the fruits of the actions arising out of the dominance of a guna in the person. It ends with the in-depth description about the purpose of performing charity, penance or sacrifice in accordance with the scriptures.

Further it describes the threefold fruits of the action by the one not living a renounced life, the causes of actions, the three gunas and their dominance on the performance of the actions. This chapter declares as to whom this wisdom should never be revealed and explained, and what are the blessings bestowed upon the one who listens to this gyana with faith and is engaged in worship of the Lord with devotion. In the end, this chapter offers an in-depth understanding into how Arjuna was freed from his doubts and was inspired to do his duty, to fight against evil and to uphold the truth.

This set features the expositions of chapter 5 till Chapter 9 of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita. It gives an insight into the essential meaning of Sannyasa and how an aspirant should live his life with equanimity and tranquillity. Fifth chapter is about the Nishkama Karma Yoga & Karma Sannyasa. After explaining the attributes of the Nishkama Karma Yogi & the Karma Sannyasi, revered master elucidates how, despite being different they are not essentially different as their minds are in equanimity & tranquility, devoid of any craving.

Unravelling the true nature (swaroopa) of Krishna, the seventh chapter explains in detail the play of his illusory shakti called Maya and how with the predominance of this Maya, an individual tends to forget God. It also reveals the nature of the three gunas and the role they play in deluding the Jiva, the individual self. Moving further, eighth chapter establishes the fact that one needs to be steadfast in sadhana to attain salvation. It explains how the last thought at the moment of death determines the next birth of the Jiva and only the one who has lived his life in devotion to the Lord is able to remember the Lord at the time of death. Besides divulging the right method of chanting Omkar, Sadgurudev Anandmurti Gurumaa also delineates the way to be in continuous contemplation of Krishna. Before beginning chapter nine, three shlokas of chapter ten have been explained to allow for deeper insight into chapter nine. The discourse begins with the glory of immense unconditional love for the Lord and Guru.
And then the explication of the ninth chapter divulges the esoteric wisdom of the creation, sustenance and destruction of samsara. Lord Krishna revealed this treasure of gyana to Arjuna because he had become free from the afflictions of the mind by worshipping the Lord with devotion & love. And only the seeker who removes these defilements with determined sadhana can contemplate on this gyana and attain salvation. While explaining this chapter Sadgurudev has stated that this wisdom given by Krishna is supreme, mysterious and sacred, and it bestows immense benefit to the seeker who is pure in mind and heart.
