Sufi and Bulleh Shah! - Part 1.

I was listening to Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab singing this beautiful poetry of Baba Bulleh Shah. There's no better combination than a Sufi written by Bulleh Shah and sung by Ustad NFAK!


For today, I will leave with you this. I would love to hear from you on what you think about this. What's your interpretation!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Makkay gayaan, gal mukdee naheen

bhaawe sow sow jummay parrh aaeey


Going to Mecca is not the ultimate

Even if hundreds of prayers are offered

Ganga gayaan, gal mukdee naheen

bhaawe sow sow gotay khaeeay


Going to Ganges is not the ultimate

Even if hundreds of cleansing (dips) are done


Gaya gayaan gal mukdee naheen

bhaawe sow sow pand parrhaeeay


Going to Gaya is not the ultimate

Even if hundreds of worships are done


Bulleh Shah gal taeeyon mukdee

Jadon May nu dillon gawaeeay


Bulleh Shah the ultimate is

When the “I” is removed from the heart!

The next part will have my interpretation of this beautiful poetry!
