"... the most complete anthology of Sufi teachings to date ... Because of its range and completeness, this is the one book that all libraries should have as they build their collections on Sufism." - Library Journal

"A grand overview of the tradition, deserves to be appreciated for its depth and breadth."- Kabir Helminski, translator of Sufi literature

Let me share a few of the jewels from the book:

Be in this world as if you are a traveller, a passer-by, with your clothes and shoes full of dust. Sometimes you sit under the shade of a tree, sometimes you walk in the desert. Be always a passer-by, for this is not home. - Hadith (Sayings of Prophet)

God speaks out of the innermost being of the mystic while he is silent. - Al Junayd

Your journey is towards your homeland. Remember you are travelling from the world of appearances to the world of Reality. - Abdl-Khaliq Ghijduwani

If you walk towards HIM, HE comes to you running. - Hadith.

You too put your best foot foward. If you do not wish to, then follow your fantacies. But if you prefer the secrets of the love of your soul, you will sacrifice everything. You will lose what you consider valuable, but you will soon hear the sacramental word, "Enter".
- Attar
