Her introduction gives a moving and concise insight into the ideals and practices of Sufism. This book is sincere, genuine and firmly rooted in the spiritual context of a great teacher. It abounds with wisdom and methods for spiritual development and every page contains a subtle gem.
Know that the outward form passes away,
But the world of reality remains for ever.
How long will you play at loving the shape of the jug?
Leave the jug; go, seek the water!
The suggestions for further reading are of the most academic and scholarly available and include Franklin D. Lewis's unsurpassable Rumi: Past and Present, East and West. For anyone who seeks profound spiritual understanding, this has to be the introduction to buy. As an introduction to Rumi's work this book cannot be bettered. It distils the essence of his wisdom. It looks good, it feels good and it does your heart good. This Spiritual Treasury is an undoubted treasure in itself. --Amar Hegedus --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
