Dara Shikoh was the eldest son of Emperor Shah Jehan of India who built the Taj Mahal. In his treatise entitled: “Majma-ul-Bharayn” (the merging of two oceans), Dara Shikoh explored the confluence of mystical thought of the Qur’an and the Upanishads, merging the currents of two traditions. While he reflected upon the monist message of Advaita Vedanta and the truth of tawhid (the oneness of God) in his reflections, we may gather from this expression a deeper ocean of realization.
