Love Eternal : Nizamuddin Auliya & Amir Khusrau

This is what i felt when i visited, for the second time in my life, the Dargah of my beloveds ~ Amir Khusrau and Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya in Delhi last Thursday evening : That it is only a single dargah even though the tombs of the poet Amir Khusrau and the Sufi saint of Chishti Order Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya are housed in two separate mausoleums within the same complex.

I felt an intense vibe around the tomb of Amir Khusrau housed in the dargah under the embracing branches of a Neem tree. And as it had happened last time, which still remains vivid in my memory, I was not able to feel much around the tomb of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya housed in a separate dargah which is just a little far away from that of Amir Khusrau's. I was wondering why i was feeling a heightened intensity of the kundalini inside the dargah of the disciple and not that of the Master's. Should it not be the other way round? Shanaa had also vouchsafed my discovery. It is not that the antenna of my kundalini is too acute to sniff out the extra-ordinary anywhere. But most of time, it never fails much to the chagrin of Devi and the Others!

It made me to intuitively realise that after the burial of Amir Khusrau, who died within a few months after the passing away of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, Nizamuddin Auliya had secretly decided to shift base on a Moonlit Thursday night during the spring of 1325 AD. On a particular Full Moon night, the ruffling leaves of the Neem tree bursted into mellifluous songs of khayal and tarana so beautifully created by Amir Khusrau. It made the guards of both the dargahs to slowly enter into a trance and they gradually fell asleep one after the other. Nizamuddin Auliya waited till the last guard to fall asleep and then, he quietly got out of his dargah, looked up at the enchanting Moon and ran across to Amir Khusrau to hug him with love, dissolving the grief of separation from each other. Since then, both the master and his most beloved disciple are living in the same dargah of the disciple, continuing to bless the searching travellers with joy and bliss..

  1. It is difficult to fathom that such a love like the one between Khusro and Hazrat Nizamud-din Auliya can exist. But the fact is that It exists. How will it come into being for us? What is the way out? They say till such time you are trying to catch it using the faculties of mind you can't catch it. It comes into being when the mind is in complete silence. And the heart is extraordinarily sensitive. It appears to be a long haul. Then you are told, NO! It is present, here and now. We are the only limiting factor. We should remove this association with 'I'. This again appears a long haul. So what should be done. Just wait & watch. Leave every thing unto HIM. May be we will also get to drink this nectar sometime in this life.
