Overview

Ahmad Sirhindi is considered one of the founding figures of the renowned Naqshbandi-Mujaddidi Sufi lineage. In this book, Sirhindi’s principal teachings, originally written in Persian, are translated into English and explained in detail. Offering access to the spiritual experiences and contemplative practices of a great 16th-century Sufi, this account demonstrates why there are so few other texts that have continued to impact Muslims in the eastern Islamic world.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The letters of Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi are widely recognized as a remarkable and influential storehouse of Sufi experience and reflection. Arthur Buehler’s meticulous translation and explanation of these important yet difficult texts is a major contribution to the study of Islamic mysticism.”  —Carl W. Ernst, William R. Kenan, Jr, Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“Buehler has achieved a groundbreaking translation of a substantial portion of Sirhindi’s letters, a mystical and philosophical masterpiece that has to date remained largely inaccessible to a Western audience.”  —Marcia Hermansen, director, Islamic World Studies Program, Loyola University

“Buehler’s judiciously selected and skillfully rendered translations make an important contribution to our understanding of this acclaimed ‘renewer of the second millennium,’ a contribution which in the spirit of Sirhindi himself cannot but lead one to reconsider much of what has come before.”  —Erik S. Ohlander, PhD, associate professor of religious studies, Indiana University–Purdue
