The Bostan of Saadi (The Orchard), Books I and II

by Barlas Mirza Aqil-Hussain, Idries Shah, Sheikh Muslihu-d-Din Sa'adi of Shiraz


The Bostan is a mine of proverbs, quotations and practical wisdom. But unlike the Gulistan (The Rose Garden) it contains far more than moralistic aphorisms and teaching stories. The Bostan is recognized by eminent Sufis as concealing the whole range of the deepest Sufi knowledge which can be committed to writing.
