This insightful autobiographical account details one man’s relationship with a spiritual master and how it led to a deep spiritual understanding of human life. The 96-year-old author, a respected British scholar, recounts the lessons learned from the Sufi sage, including the answers to profound questions such as Do religions contradict one another? What is the spiritual significance of tears and laughter? How does the Divine play a part in such simple acts? Do civilizations embody spirituality? and How is the Quranic definition of the afterlife related to Sufism? An appendix in memory of Dr. Lings includes tributes from Huston Smith and Wendell Berry, photos from Doctor Ling's, and excerpts from major obituaries.

Dr. Martin Lings' retired Keeper of Oriental Manuscripts at the British Museum was a student of C. S. Lewis at Oxford and later his great friend. Lings is one the world's greatest scholars on Islam, Sufism and Symbolism. He is the author of the acclaimed masterspiece "Muhammad: His Life Based On the Earliest Sources" which was translated into 17 languages and given awards by various heads of state.

As an authority on the Bard, he taught Shakespeare at Cairo University in the 1940s. In 2004, London's Globe Theatre held a major event in Lings honor at which he spoke about the inner-spiritual life of Shakespeare. The preface to this Secret of Shakespeare is by Prince Charles who often spends time alone with Dr. Lings.
