Description

For millennia, the sages of the East have claimed that the world is maya or ‘illusion’. Drawing on theories of sensory perception from physics, psychology and biology, the author shows that all products or perception are artifacts. The book discusses the precise set of mechanisms through which the artifact of the separate self arises and is perpetuated.

Neo-Sufi thought, in the spirit of the Renaissance, is a framework where art, science, philosophy and authentic spiritual impulse merge into a single unified, potent sense and sensibility.
 
About the Author

 

Ali Ansari is a writer, poet and engineer, who has taught at several universities in the US and India. He has been engaged in contemporary adaptations of Sufi work and has drawn on both ancient and modern sources in developing his system.

 

Praise

"The volume gives insight into the philosophy of Sufism and would serve as a guideline to the concept."
