Publisher's Summary

Caravan of Dreams distills the essence of Eastern thought in a feast of Sufi stories, sayings, poems, and allegories collected by one of the world's leading experts in Oriental philosophy and Sufism. Idries Shah builds up a complete picture of a single consciousness, relating Eastern mythology to reality, illuminating historical patterns, and presenting philosophical legends in this unique anthology.
Its title is inspired by the couplet written by the Sufi mystic Bahaudin:
Here we are, all of us: in a dream-caravan,
A caravan, but a dream - a dream, but a caravan.
And we know which are the dreams.
Therein lies the hope.

Awesome Narrator

I have read Caravan of Dreams many times and now it's nice to be able to listen to it as well. Especially as David Ault's calm, varied and pleasant voice lifts the text without dominating it.

That kind of boook to read(or listen) over and over again. Each time opens up new gates.
