Reseña del editor:

Drawing on rare Persian manuscripts preserved in medieval Sufi shrines, Carl Ernst reveals the mystical teachings of the Chishti Sufi order as taught by the ecstatic Shaykh Burhan al-Din Gharib (c.1337)and his disciples. His study engages provocatively with key issues, such as the basis of Islamic political power in South Asia, and seeks to clarify a diversity of historiographical approaches to the to the study of South Asian Sufism. Now in its second edition, with a preface detailing advances in the field of Sufism studies, this is an authoritative analysis of a controversial and fascinating subject.
