Description from the publisher: Almost a thousand years ago a new and powerful nexus of spiritual transmission emerged in Central Asia, reaching its culmination in the work of the Khwajagan or ‘Masters of Wisdom’. Like the much earlier Rishi Pantha of India, the Khwajagan were men with families, who sometimes maintained quie active and forceful connections within society. They exerted a remarkable influence on the destiny of Central Asia but their essential significance lies in their almost unparalleled depth of spiritual mastery. Among the Masters’ inspirational founders were Ahmad al-Yasavi of Chinese Turkestan, the father of Turkish Sufism and Baha’ al-Din Naqshband, from whom the Naqshbandi order of Sufis took its name.
