Book Description World Wisdom Books, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Epic love poems often share common thematic elements - love in union, love in separation and love in reunion. While two different religious and cultural traditions such as Islamic Sufism and Hindu Bhaktism might seem to have little in common, their literary expression might suggest otherwise. Lalita Sinha investigates this possibility in UNVEILING THE GARDEN OF LOVE by finding common threads shared between the classic love poems, The Story of Layla Majnun (written by Nezami in the Sufi tradition) and Gita Govinda (written by Jayadeva in the Hindu tradition). These literary masterpieces, through the saga of human love, open a doorway to understanding the shared experiences of these two diverse religions. Bookseller Inventory # ANB9781933316635
