By Farseem Mohammedy on July 21, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This an excellent diary of the discourses made by a major early Indian Sufi Master. Hadrat Nizamuddin Awliya is an extremely well-known sufi and his shrine in Delhi is still venerated with the same zeal as was the case in 14th century. This book describes the great saint's dated discourses over a period of couple of years compiled by a disciple. Nizamuddin Awliya discussed many details in the form of parables, so no brainstorming needed from the reader. With lots of tidbits on how one should behave, how one should pray, many simple dua's that one can make, this book is really a gem for humble sufi students. The words of this book are full of lights of illumination.

Althought the layout takes getting used to, by the 4th or 5th page one can get thoroughly absorbed in the text and the words of wisdom.
Nizamuddin Awliya was a great Muslim Saint of the Chishti spiritual order during the Moghul-Indian era. He was a spiritual inheritor of Baba Fariduddin Ganj Shakr and of Khwaja Muinuddin Chisti of Ajmer. Among his famous disciples was Amir Khusroe, the famous sufi poet.
While this is a collection of his sayings to his students and people of the era, much of the advice is timeless.
Bruce lawrence has made a good effort in keeping the mood of the text and this is a book not only for those interested in Sufism, but as a book of inspiration and comfort .

This is a wonderful book, beautifully translated. Have patience with the author's style/presentation template. It is literary politeness.

Someone once explained to me the Chishti path: small effort, big results. Indian Sufism is unique.
