Sufism and Bhakti Movement: Eternal Relevance

Hamid Hussain (Author)

Medieval period witnessed socio-religious movements-Sufi and Bhakti, that attempted to harmonise social relationship.  Great saints of the period propagated human brotherhood that led to far reaching impacts on the social milieu.  Today we stand at the threshold of caste and religious division, corruption and degradation of moral and social values.  This book aims at reiterating the message of Sufi and Bhakti saints t thwart these evils of the society.  Renowned scholars of the discipline have deliberated upon various issues pertaining to the world today and the teachings of saints on these important issues.  Important saints like Rumi, Baba Farid, Nizamuddin Auliya, Maneri, Nanak, Kabir etc. and their contributions to the society form part of this exercise.  The saints' contributions towards inter-community coexistence, communal harmony, humanism etc. are also important components of the work.  The idea is to reiterate the message of these saints, as these have eternal relevance.
