    One thought on “Sufi: Expressions of the Mystic Quest”

    1. Excellent resource on Sufi symbolism and art. Sections on numbers and geometry, architecture and music, and mystical dreams and poetry. Really captures the sense of wonder inherent in the Sufi traditions.

    2. I liked the book .I liked the collection of various geometrical patterns and design the way they are discussed in the context of Islamic history and architecture.
