Publisher's Summary

Special Illumination is a term used by the great poet and mystic, Jalaluddin Rumi, to stress the importance of humor in metaphysical experience.

Of it, Idries Shah says, "Rumi directly contradicts such numerous sour-faced religionists as, in all persuasions, find that humor disturbs the indoctrination which is all that they usually have to offer."

For serious students only.

One of many in an extraordinary series. Must be read in that context. For serious students only. Should be read repeatedly - at intervals. Absolutely brilliant.
