A thousand years and more ago, it was being written in the East that ‘Sufism was formerly a reality without a name: now it is a name without a reality’. In the present day, there are plenty of cults and plenty of approaches to Sufism. Some of us are interested in the reality, still, and are not greatly disturbed by the names. This is something of an advance, because it enables us to register that such-and-such a cult or group, whatever its name, is playing out a role which its members need. If it calls itself ‘Sufi’, we do not need to find much harm in that, since the advantage to the members is that they are happy, or happy in their misery, feel fulfilled or feel significance in their struggle for fulfillment.

A camel is stronger than a man; an elephant is larger; a lion has greater valour; cattle can eat more than man; birds are more virile. Man was made for the purpose of learning.

Man was made for Learning


Sayed Sultán dijo:

“Si rezas, y sientes satisfacción por haber rezado, tu acción te ha hecho peor. En tales circunstancias, deja de rezar hasta que hayas aprendido cómo ser realmente humilde.”

Sayed Sultán





Nasrudín se casó con una viuda.
Cinco días más tarde ella dio luz a un niño.
El Mulá salió inmediatamente y se puso a comprar material escolar.
La gente preguntó:
“¿Por qué estás comprando todas estas cosas?”
Nasrudín dijo:
“Si mi hijo ha logrado hacer un viaje de nueve meses en cinco días, en cualquier momento estará listo para ir a la escuela.”
