Sarmad and His Rubaiyat

Historically Sarmad is a shadowy figure who lived and was martyred
at the time of the early Mughal emperors in 17th century India.
Despite the opposition of the orthodox clergy and the political
machinations of the royal court, his powerful personality and
profound rubaiyat ( 4 line verses carrying a single sustained thought)
in Persian, brought him popular acclaim at the time and a continuing
reverence over the centuries. He shunned the world and sought God
alone in an uncompromising way. Dr Sharib draws from the limited
historical sources available to provide an inspiring introduction to
Sarmad's life and the complete 318 verses presented here in English
translation from the original Persian.

Perfect bound paperback, 112 pages, b&w original illustrations by Jamiluddin
Morris, photographs and some verses in original Persian script. Glossary.
Published in 1994 in the UK.

Also available on CD Rom called 'from the Garden of the Sufis'.
