Revealed Grace The Juristic Sufism of Ahmad Sirhindi
Arthur F. Buehler
Buehler has achieved a groundbreaking translation of a substantial portion of Sirhindiâ€™s Letters, a mystical and philosophical masterpiece that has to date remained largely inaccessible to a Western audience. The work, masterfully introduced and meticulously annotated, is academically rigorous while yet taking seriously the authorâ€™s contemplative experiences, mapping the inner and cosmic landscape against which they emerge.
