Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sufism is sometimes described as the mystical aspect of Islam and sometimes as the interior experience of all religions. Certainly, its historical roots lie with Islam; its best-known adherents are the so-called whirling dervishes of Konya in Turkey. This important collection of essays treats many aspects of this still misunderstood mystical practice and includes writings from some of the most respected and most effective porters of that tradition to the West, e.g., Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Titus Burckhardt, William C. Chittick, and Frithjof Schuon. Less a how-to than a gathering of many approaches and ideas, this work should still answer many readers' first questions about Sufism and whet the appetite for further exploration.
