PublishAmerica Presents The Saint from Ajmer by Harpreet Kaur

Frederick, MD January 19, 2010 -- PublishAmerica is proud to present The Saint from Ajmer by Mumbai, Maharashtra, India author Harpreet Kaur.

Ajmer, an ancient city, stands on the highest plateau of the Aravalli range. Famous as the capital of the Chauhan empire, it became the center of the world for thousands of people who found solace at the shrine of Sufi saint Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. Born in Sajistan, he became the follower of Chistiya sect and found place among the chosen five Khwajas, known well in the world.He laid the foundations of the Chishtiya order in Ajmer, which soon spread across India. His firm faith in Wahdat al-wujud (the Unity of Being) provided the ideological support to his mystic mission - their aim is to live for God alone. The early Chistis did not ask for formal conversion to Islam to being a prerequisite of a follower. He interpreted religion in terms of human service and always told his disciples to reach the highest level of devotion was by—“to redress the misery of those in distress - to fulfill the needs of the helpless and to feed the hungry.” This book is an effort to give an insight into this great saint’s life and his teachings.

Harpreet Kaur is also the author of Archaeology: Methods and Techniques. Since her childhood, she had heard so many stories about this revered saint, which actually set her on a journey of self-discovery as well to find out more about him and Ajmer.
