The poetry of Bullhe Shah, who drew upon Sufi mysticism, is considered one of the glories of premodern Panjabi literature. His lyrics, famous for their vivid style and outspoken denunciation of artificial religious divisions, have been held in affection by Muslims, Sikhs, and Hindus, and continue to win audiences in the global Panjabi diaspora.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Drawing from the Sufi tradition of mysticism, Bullhe Shah wrote poetry that is sharp, simple and immortal. His verses question strictures of organized religion and societal norms. They are beautiful paeans to romantic and mystical love underpinned by rich spiritual philosophy.--Pragya Tiwari "India at LSE blog "
The lucid and informative introduction by the volume's editor and translator, Christopher Shackle, takes readers through the trajectory of Sufism from Persia to India and the several orders within the movement in India. But most useful is a short essay on the themes of the lyrics. The poems that follow open up in all their appeal, universal and timeless in their great subject of love, endearing in their simplicity of expressiveness.--Neel Mukherjee"New Statesman" (03/05/2015)
