Overview

In this wide-ranging anthology of Sufi writings, Idries Shah, who was one of Sufism’s leading exponents, offers a broad selection of poetry, contemplations, letters, lectures, and teaching stories that together form an illuminating introduction to this unique body of thought. 

Sufism, the mystical aspect of Islam, has had a dynamic and lasting effect on the literature of that religion. Its teachings, often elusive and subtle, aim at the perfecting and completing of the human mind. In contrast to certain other beliefs and philosophies, Sufism is continually evolving and progressing and is consequently always relevant to the contemporary world.

“His work is as exciting as a good novel”—The Times Literary Supplement

I believe I have read everything Idries Shah ever wrote--many of them (there are over 30) several times. But, when people ask me specific questions about Sufism as projected by Idries Shah, I invariably refer them to a page from THE WAY OF THE SUFI.

Provides the reader an introductory course of study, including a review of special problems facing the student. This book felt like a breath of fresh air after years of ploughing through non-sensical and obtuse material in the path of this self-described 'seeker'-yours truly.
