After a long time geing a chance to post something nice over here.
I am always been a fan of shayri, sufi shayri. Especially the sufi shayri is my all time favorite. It brings you closer to divine. Shayari or poetry has to be in such way that it uplifts your soul. Poetry done by our saints like Kabir, Meerabai is so much beautiful.
Here is one beautiful line from one forward email -
Mohabbat ek aihasanso ki woh pawan kahani hai , kabhi Kabeer diwana tha kabhi Meera diwani thi , yaha sab log kahate hai mere ankhho me aansu haijo tu samaje to moti hai aur jo tu nasamje to pani hai.
Great sufi singer pandit nusarat fate ali khan has sung following very beautifully.
saaNsoN kii maalaa pe simruuN maiN pii ka naam
apne mann kii maiN jaanuuN aur pii ke mann kii Ram
With every breath I take, I chant the name of my beloved
I know of my heart, and God knows of the heart of my beloved
yahii merii bandagii hai, yahii merii puujaa
This is my salutation [and] this is my prayer.
ek thaa saajan mandir meN aur ek thaa pritam masjid meN
par maiN prem ke rang meN aisii Duubii ban gayaa ek hii ruup
One lover was in the temple and another in the mosque
but to me, immersed in the joy of love, both seemed same
prem kii maalaa japte japte aap banii maiN Shyam
Chanting on rosary, the name of Shyam [Lord Krishna], I become him.
Note: A Hindu God sung and revered by the patrons of love.
ham aur nahiiN kuchu kaam ke
matvaare pii ke naam ke, har dam
I am worthless except that
I surrender to the name of my beloved, all the time.
priitam kaa kuch dosh nahiiN hai vo to hai nirdosh
apne aap se baateN kar ke ho gayii maiN badnaam
My beloved is not to be blamed, it is no fault of his
I became infamous only because of talking to myself
