Description from the publisher:
The history of mysticism contains many impassioned love songs to the Absolute, but in Sufi poetry there is a peculiar richness, a colour which fascinates and charms so many of us.
Shabistari composed his Gulshan-i-Raz, of which this is the translation, in answer to a series of questions on mystical doctrine set to him by an enquirer from Khurasan.
A collection of poems written in the 14th century by Sheikh Mahmoud Shabistari. It is considered to be one of the greatest classical Persian works of the Islamic mystical tradition known in the west as Sufism. The poems are mostly based on Irfan, Islam, Sufism and sciences dependent on them.
