Bulleh Shah and His Master
Bulleh Shah was born in Syed
family. Thus he was descendant of Prophet Mohammed. Bulleh Shah was well
versed in many scriptures but what ever he knew from scriptures was not
his personal experience. So Bulleh Shah was searching for a Guru. And when
ever a seeker is ready, Guru appears. This is the rule of existence.
Bulleh shah had a deep desire to meet his Guru who can take him to other
shore. He was doing many spiritual practices even before meeting guru and
had some spiritual powers also. But his heart was not satisfied. His
thirst for God was very deep and only real experience could have satisfied
One day he heard about one man Inayat Shah who had attained the Ultimate.
Bulleh Shah belonged to a very rich family but this man was from very low
caste family land. He was a Gardener.
When Bulleh Shah first time went to meet Inayat Shah, he was Planting an
Onion crop. Inayat Shah's back was towards Bulleh Shah. Now Bulleh Shah
didn’t had the courage to call the attention of Inayat Shah. Bulleh Shah
saw there are many mango trees in front of Inayat Shah.
Bulleh Shah closed his eyes and remembered Allah for a minute. Mangoes
started falling from the tree. When mangoes started falling Inayat Shah
looked at falling mangoes and saw one man standing behind him.
Inayat Shah said “Oh you thief, why you are making these mangoes fall”
Bulleh Shah looked here and there but there was no one around. Bulleh shah
said “if you are asking me then see, I don’t have any stone or stick in my
hand. How can I make these mangoes fall”
Inayat Shah said “You are clever also. What do you want?”
Bulleh Shah said “I am searching for God” and he fell at Inayat Shah feet.
Inayat Shah said “Why you are falling below. Look upwards towards me.”
Bulleh shah looked towards Inayat Shah. And the way Inayat Shah looked at
him. Seeing so much compassion and love in Inayat Shah eyes Bulleh shah
fell in deep love with him.
Sahajo is one lady in whole spiritual history who has sang lot of songs in
praise of Guru. But Bulleh Shah's love for his Guru was exceptional.
Shah's eyes were always thirsty for his Guru's Vision. His Love for his
Guru was so intense that once his guru became angry with Bulleh Shah and
asked him to leave his house immediately.
Now Bulleh Shah can was in terrible agony. Day and night he was thinking
how to please his Guru. From some where he came to know that his guru
loves dance. Just to please his Guru, Bulleh Shah learned dance from
prostitutes and became a dancing Girl. Such was the intensity of his love
for his Guru.
