The inner spiritual core of Islam has been the focus of Sufi practitioners and thinkers for hundreds of years. Those initiated into its mysteries have sometimes expressed those mysteries in ecstatic poetry in a symbolic language of love, as did Rumi, or sometimes in reasoned prose, as did Ibn Arabi.
These essays by such contemporary writers on Sufism as Seyyed Hossein Nasr, William Chittick, Titus Burckhardt, Martin Lings, Rene Guenon, and Frithjof Schuon, unlock for modern readers some of the language, the thinking, and the history of classical Sufism. Covering a wide range of topics related to Sufism, the book also includes several essays translated into English for the first time and some contributions from a new generation of interpreters of Sufism.
