He is one of the finest spiritual Sufi poet and scholar from the Punjab. His writings are still celebrated in all parts of the world. He was born into a Sayyed family; his father being a preacher in a mosque, his family had a long association with Sufi’s. Bulleh Shah spent most of his life in Kasur, right from his education until his death. After receiving his traditional education in Kasur, Bulleh Shah went to Lahore and became a disciple of a famous spiritual teacher Qadiri Sufi Shah Inayat, who guided him towards self-realisation and spiritual awakening. He wrote various forms of Punjabi poetry but the majority of his verses were Kafi’s, a style of Punjabi poetry. A number of Bulleh Shah’s Kafis are sung by present day qawwals. The simplicity in his works and preaching about fundamentals of living makes him more famous. Later Shah Inayat was also irked by Bulleh Shah’s independent attitude and refused to meet him for a while. Bulleh Shah who had declared his love for his spiritual guide was heartbroken. In order to make amends, he broke more social taboos and became the disciple of a dancing girl. He then came in disguise and performed in front of his old teacher, who he knew, was fond of dance. Shah Inayat was touched by this act of dedication and humility and accepted Bulleh Shah back among his company.
