Baba Bulleh Shah was a scholar, an intellectual with immense command over words but no real experience of sublime love. Only when he encountered his master, he understood that what was missing in his life was the ecstatic expression of love. Gurumaa vividly brings alive the spirit of Baba Bulle Shah in these memorable discourses.
When the course of one’s life takes a spiritual bent, it becomes replete with beautiful emotions and divine experiences. These range from the agony of separation, to the bliss of surrender to the ecstasy of communion. Baba Bulleh Shah’s spiritual quest is one such joyous journey of self-discovery, eloquently presented in these discourses by Anandmurti Gurumaa. The inner exploration of this passionate seeker of Truth has indeed been exquisitely captured in all its wonderful hues by this contemporary mystic master.
Gurumaa’s captivating narration of the mystical relationship between guru and disciple is as deeply touching as it is inspiring. These profound discourses are interspersed with some amazing renditions by Gurumaa. Through anecdotes and stories about Baba Bulleh Shah, Gurumaa makes us introspect where we stand in relation to our spiritual quest; indeed, have we started on our own journey? This album is veritably an invitation to initiate that seeking.
This set of 2 MP3 albums also features ten musical tracks which were rendered by Gurumaa during the discourses. Each album is indeed a collector’s item, and each of the various tracks are verily a heartfelt experience. The title track ‘Ki jaana main kaun Bulleya’, in Gurumaa’s mellifluous voice invites the seeker to initiate his quest for his true identity. It opens up new vistas for the keen listener wishing to delve deeper within himself. Other tracks like ‘Dilbar ki karda’ and ‘Ranjha jogida ban aaya’ convey the unique flavour of the relationship between the seeker and God, whom Bulleh Shah calls the Beloved. For Bulleh Shah, his master Hazrat Inayat Shah Qadiri too is the Beloved, endearingly called Ranjha, after the legendary lovers of Punjab, Heer and Ranjha. Full of adoration for his master, Bulleh Shah sings, ‘Kaho kis thi aap chhupaieda’? Immense yearning combined with devotion and reverence characterises many of these poignant tracks. The collection ends with the exuberance of ‘Navion navi bahaar, ishq di’, making us too rejoice in Bulleh Shah’s attaining the bliss within, and the ‘Aarti’ at the lotus feet of the master.
Through Bulle Shah’s spiritual experiences and attainments, Gurumaa takes us on a unique voyage of love. Come, embark on this wonderful journey of self-discovery.
