DOORKEEPER OF THE HEART: Versions of Rabia
By Charles Upton

Price: $12.00

"How long will you keep pounding an open door begging for someone to open it?"

Rabia al-Adawiyya was an unconventional Muslim woman from Basra known as "the First of Sufis". She could be considered the progenitor of other great Sufi poets such as Jelaludin Rumi. Readers of these fiery verses and teaching-stories will glimpse Rabia's state of radical freedom. She challenges us: pass through the open doorway of the heart; transcend and transform all limitations; become as one with the Beloved.

REVELATION OF THE MYSTERY
By AL-HUJWIRI
Foreword by Carl W. Ernst

ISBN: 1-879708-14-0
Price: $18
Trade paper, 472 pages

Like Rumi, Hafiz and Attar, al-Hujwiri was one of the great saints of Sufism. Revelation of the Mystery, or Kashf al-mahjub, has been revered by students of Sufism for nine centuries. This classic text contains biographies of the saints, including Fudayl, the brigand who became a great spiritual teacher; Ibrahim Adham, the prince who renounced everything when he received the divine call; and al-Hallaj, the great Sufi martyr. Al-Hujwiri also offers the spiritual seeker universal and timeless advice on many subjects, such as contemplation, generosity, spiritual courtesy, prayer, love and distinguishing false spirituality and false teachers from the real, a discernment just as important today as then.

"It has been said that those who seek a guide in Sufism should do three things: pray for guidance, visit the tombs of the great shaykhs, and read [Revelation of the Mystery]."

- Carl W. Ernst, author of The Shambhala Guide to Sufism

CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS
By FARID UD-DIN ATTAR
Translated by C.S. NOTT

ISBN: 1-879708-13-2
Price: $14
Trade paper, 160 pages

The Conference of the Birds is one of the great works of world literature. In it Farid ud-Din Attar explores the nature of the spiritual path through an allegory of the brave birds that go in search of their king through the peaks of exultation and the valleys of despair that represent the stages of the seeker as he travels towards enlightenment. Attar was the predecessor of the great Persian Sufi poet Jalalludin Rumi, who borrowed Attar's technique of weaving wisdom within entertaining and amusing tales.

"Attar, along with Chaucer and Dante, is a great genius of community and how that involves the path toward enlightenment. We are these bird-beings searching for the source of what we are together."

- Coleman Barks, author of The Essential Rumi
