The contribution of such Sufis as Nund Reshi and his associates to the spiritualism and humanism in Kashmir is immense. Reshi culture was a scared mission dedicated to the cause of humanity as a whole and especially to offer succor and solace to the suffering masses of Kashmir. They encouraged people to live a life of piety and discipline and stressed that the real devotion of Almighty was in the service of suffering man. These Reshis encouraged the people to love humanity and Allah. They exhorted people to overcome pride, anger, greed, lust, and excessive involvement in worldly affairs. These Reshis had attained the highest stages of spiritual refinement, awakening of self. They used their poetic genius and saying judiciously to make the erring man understand the essence of life and spirituality. I have come here to pay my obeisance at the venerated shrine. I prayed for peace and prosperity of the state and wellbeing of each and every individual living in our state. May the Almighty’s grace be on us and the coming generations.”
