Summary

Summary

Professor Arberry quotes Sanai on his own Hadiqa as saying: "Henceforward, so long as men have speech at all, the philosophers of the world will read this book!" For more than 800 years, in the East at any rate, The Walled Garden of Truth has been constantly read and employed as a classic and Sufi textbook.
