Sufism has been defined in different ways by scholars and religionists: some call it the mystical tradition of Islam, others the universal heart of all spirituality. But for many mystics it can only mean one thing-that when you love God, you die to yourself and live in Him.

The readings in this book, ranging from the tenth to the twentieth century and mostly deriving from the Middle East and India, offer a glimpse into the living world of the Sufis.
