Description
About the Books

Seven hundred years ago too. the Valley of Kashmir was passing through the same spell of torment and turmoil as it is today. At that time, the social norms, culture and geopolitics of the region were in a rapid flux. In the name of novelty, the old values were being given up for the faith of the aggressive foreigners. Such were the circumstances in which was born Kashmir's primal poetess, Lal Ded. Centuries have passed, but the songs that she sang in her inborn anguish, assimilating the Valley's intense agony, are still being heard in the murmur of chilly winds passing through its woods.

The novel tells the tale of the hermit poetess. What she says in these pages are but snippets of her songs. The people of Kashmir have kept those songs close to their bosom as they do the kangri, that innovative fire-pot which keeps them warm even in the harshest cold winds.

Living in this world, Lal Ded reached a pinnacle which the world cannot get to, where all the religions are left behind. Even Shiva, in whose quest she wandered about all her life, vanished from her sight and she too disappeared into the void - sunya. It is our good fortune to have with us her songs that enlighten us as to how poetry can give meaning to life.

Lal Ded, originally written in Dogri, has already been translated into Kashmiri, Pahari, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu. Marathi and Gujarati. It has been awarded the 'Best Book' prize by the Government of Jammu and Kashmir in 2012. The novel has been also prescribed in a course of study by the University of Jammu.

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
