Sultan Bahu

Mystique soufi du XVIIe siècle et contemporain de Bulleh Shah, Sultan Bahu devint l’un des Saints soufis du nord de l’Inde les plus aimés. C’est dans la langue punjabi que Sultan Bahu écrivit la plus grande partie de sa poésie, sous forme de quatrains (abyât). Sa poésie, qui rappelle la poésie mystique persane, parle de la réalisation spirituelle et de l’amour pour le Maître (le murshid), et dénonce la religion orthodoxe avec ses observances extérieures et ses rites vides. L’ouvrage présente 200 poèmes traduits en français à partir de la version anglaise, et ceux-ci sont précédés d’un récit détaillé de la vie de Bahu et de ses enseignements.

A Sufi mystic and contemporary of Bulleh Shah, Sultan Bahu lived during the seventeenth century and became one of the best loved Sufi Saints of northern India. Sultan Bahu wrote his major poetic works in the Punjabi language using the quatrain form (abiyat). His poetry, which has the flavour of Persian mystic poetry, dwells on spiritual realization, love for the Master (murshid), and denunciation of orthodox religion with its empty rituals and external observances. The poetry section is preceded by a thorough account of Bahu's life and teaching.
