http://www.idriesshahfoundation.org/ Called a ‘practical philosophy’ or ‘templates in straight thinking’ – these works represent centuries of Sufi thought aimed at the development of human potential to its fullest extent.They stress virtues such as common sense, clear-thinking & humour to counter cant & religious dogma.
