Biography of Lalita Sinha

The daughter of migrant Bengali parents, Lalita Sinha was born in Pahang, Malaysia. She studied world literatures at Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang, and continued graduate studies in Comparative Literature at the same institution. Dr. Sinha served with Universiti Sains Malaysia for more than three decades. She retired as Senior Lecturer in Comparative Literature and Comparative Religion in 2006, and has since been increasingly involved in publishing at home and abroad. One of her books, The Other Salina: A. Samad Said’s Masterpiece in Translation (2006) has been highly commended by Malaysian National Laureates and the academic book publishers council of Malaysia. Her essays have been published in various journals, among others, Sacred Web: Journal of Tradition & Modernity, Tenggara: Journal of Southeast Asian Studies, and Malaysian Branch of the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society. Currently, she is involved in graduate training workshops, literary translation as well as lectures and publications on literature and mysticism.

Unveiling the Garden of Love is primarily based on her Ph.D research, which is an interpretation and comparison of mystical poems of the Hindu-Bhakti and Islamic-Sufi traditions based on the Traditionalist viewpoint. The thesis was honored with the Best Thesis Award 2004 by Universiti Sains Malaysia. Besides being a work of research it is a reflection of her personal quest and challenges, and esoteric insights from transformational encounters with living spiritual masters.
