The Teachers of Spiritual Wisdom

release date: May 03, 2021
The Teachers of Spiritual Wisdom
We call attention to the harsh reality that we are living in troubled times. We are especially conscious of climate change and COVID-19. We underline that these challenges impact all people. In light of this reality, we use ten primary questions that all human beings ask, consciously or unconsciously, and then amplify each of the ten primary questions with nine additional sub-questions. We then draw upon one of the great teachers of spiritual wisdom (Buddha, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, etc.) with a brief quote and then write a short “wisdom” response to the question. By “wisdom” we mean a body of accumulated reflection about the character and meaning of life. Spiritual wisdom suggests an outlook or attitude that enables us to cope, a deeper way of knowing and learning the art of living in rhythm with the soul. We use the life experience of three authors, coming from different religious and cultural outlooks.

The Comic Teachings of Mulla Nasruddin and Other Sufi Treasures

release date: Apr 30, 2015
The Comic Teachings of Mulla Nasruddin and Other Sufi Treasures
The legendary Mulla Nasruddin is a village simpleton and sage rolled into one. The stories of his wisdom, timeless and placeless, emanate from a source beyond book learning and contain several layers of meaning. In this unique book, Imam Jamal Rahman weaves together Islamic spiritual insights with the Mulla’s humorous teachings and connects them to the issues at the heart of the spiritual quest. Rahman pairs the stories with teachings from the Qur’an, Prophet Muhammad, Rumi, Hafiz and other Islamic sages. Through Mulla, these fables address larger social concerns of human vulnerability and depravity, the hazards of the ego and much more. Together, these sources combined with spiritual practices will raise your soul to laughter and inspire you to transform yourself and the world around you. IMAM JAMAL RAHMAN is a beloved teacher and retreat leader whose passion for helping people deepen their spiritual lives and cultivate interfaith understanding has inspired audiences throughout the world. He has been featured in the New York Times, on CBS News, the BBC and many NPR programs. He is co-founder and Muslim Sufi minister at Interfaith Community Sanctuary, adjunct faculty at Seattle University, and a former host of Interfaith Talk Radio.
