Four Sufi ClassicsBook - 1980
Ghazali, Sanai, and Jami, authors of the four Sufi classics presented here, are among the very greatest names in the Sufi tradition. These four classical expositions of Sufi thought and experience give a cross-section of traditional instruction materials studied in dervish schools-but which are also a part of the literature of the Middle East. The dates of these translations range from the famous Salaman, published in 1856, to Pendlebury's rendering from The Way of the Seeker, com-pleted in 1979. The introduction to this volume provides informative background as to the intent of the various works and observations on the translations, from a Sufi point of view.
