"Referring to himself as "Nobody, Son of Nobody," Shaikh Abu-Saeed Abil-Kheir expressed the reality that his life had disappeared in the heart of God. This renowned, but lesser-known Sufi mystic of the 10th century, preceded the great poet Jelaluddin Rumi by over two hundred years on the same path of annihilation in Love. This book contains poetic renderings of 195 short selections from the original Farsi, the language in which Abil-Kheir wrote." "These poems deal with longing for union with God, the desire to know the Real from the false, the inexpressible beauty of creation when seen through the eyes of Love, and the many attitudes of heart, mind and feeling necessary to those who would find the Beloved, The Friend, in this life."--BOOK JACKET.
