The Nightingale in the Garden of Love: The Poems of Hazret-i Pīr-i Üftāde

Anqa Publishing, 2005 - 180 pagina's

A detailed overview of the life and teachings of one of the great Ottoman Sufi masters, Mehmed Muhyiddin Uftade, is accompanied by an English translation of a collection of his religious poetry in this tribute to the Turkish and Persian spiritual traditions. Uftade’s prominent role in the founding of the Jelvetiyye, one of the main dervish orders, his influence on Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent, and his instruction of renowned disciple ’Aziz Mahmud Hudayi, are carefully described alongside the faithfully rendered tenets of his spiritual teachings, augmented by firsthand accounts of his views translated from the journal of a disciple. Uftade's poetry employs simple, direct, and wonderfully human language to express the human yearning for the divine and the ups and downs of the spiritual path.

The invocation of H
You must love
The nightingales praise
May He grant us the grace of His Beauty
Let us apply ourselves this day
The fasting moon has returned
The secret hidden within
Surrender your spirit
No other wish
