    About "Idries Shah"

      • Idries Shah

        Idries Shah Persian , also known as Idris Shah, n Sayed Idries el Hashimi Arabic , was an author and teacher in the Sufi tradition who wrote over three dozen critically acclaimed books on topics ranging from psychology and spirituality to travelogues and culture studies.Born in India, the descendant of a family of Afghan nobles, Shah grew up mainly in England His early writings centred on magic and witchcraft In 1960 he established a publishing house, Octagon Press, producing translations of Sufi classics as well as titles of his own His most seminal work was The Sufis, which appeared in 1964 and was well received internationally In 1965, Shah founded the Institute for Cultural Research, a London based educational charity devoted to the study of human behaviour and culture A similar organisation, the Institute for the Study of Human Knowledge ISHK , exists in the United States, under the directorship of Stanford University psychology professor Robert Ornstein, whom Shah appointed as his deputy in the U.S.In his writings, Shah presented Sufism as a universal form of wisdom that predated Islam Emphasising that Sufism was not static but always adapted itself to the current time, place and people, he framed his teaching in Western psychological terms Shah made extensive use of traditional teaching stories and parables, texts that contained multiple layers of meaning designed to trigger insight and self reflection in the reader He is perhaps best known for his collections of humorous Mulla Nasrudin stories.Shah was at times criticised by orientalists who questioned his credentials and background His role in the controversy surrounding a new translation of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, published by his friend Robert Graves and his older brother Omar Ali Shah, came in for particular scrutiny However, he also had many notable defenders, chief among them the novelist Doris Lessing Shah came to be recognised as a spokesman for Sufism in the West and lectured as a visiting professor at a number of Western universities His works have played a significant part in presenting Sufism as a secular, individualistic form of spiritual wisdom.Idries Shah s books on Sufism achieved considerable critical acclaim He was the subject of a BBC documentary One Pair of Eyes in 1969, and two of his works The Way of the Sufi and Reflections were chosen as Outstanding Book of the Year by the BBC s The Critics programme Among other honours, Shah won six first prizes at the UNESCO World Book Year in 1973, and the Islamic scholar James Kritzeck, commenting on Shah s Tales of the Dervishes, said that it was beautifully translated.The reception of Shah s movement was also marked by much controversy Some orientalists were hostile, in part because Shah presented classical Sufi writings as tools for self development to be used by contemporary people, rather than as objects of historical study L P Elwell Sutton from Edinburgh University, Shah s fiercest critic, described his books as trivial , replete with errors of fact, slovenly and inaccurate translations and even misspellings of Oriental names and words a muddle of platitudes, irrelevancies and plain mumbo jumbo , adding for good measure that Shah had a remarkable opinion of his own importance Expressing amusement and amazement at the sycophantic manner of Shah s interlocutors in a BBC radio interview, Elwell Sutton concluded that some Western intellectuals were so desperate to find answers to the questions that baffle them, that, confronted with wisdom from the mysterious East, they abandon their critical faculties and submit to brainwashing of the crudest kind To Elwell Sutton, Shah s Sufism belonged to the realm of Pseudo Sufism , centred not on God but on man Doris Lessing, one of Shah s greatest defenders,stated in a 1981 interview I found Sufism as taught by Idries Shah, which claim

    1. The title of this book comes from the Sufi ibn al-Arabi's description of a "veiled gazelle" as a "subtlety," an organ of spiritual perception. The book appears to offer instruction to help one gain increased perception in Sufi study. It offers a series of teaching-stories which seem designed to help toward this end. And even as pure entertainment the book succeeds, such tales as "Horse-Khan, Son of a Khan," or the riotous adventures of Alim the Artful or Latif the Thief being rewarding just on t [...]


    2. My Sufi leanings, which seem to grow stronger and stronger every day, led me to Idries Shah and this delightful little collection of short stories. Some are better than others, but all of them illustrate certain lessons. (Although I'm still not on board with the story about the doctor who told a patient he was incurable rather than telling him the truth - that he needed to swallow something really really disgusting in order to be cured.) The writing style is charming, and the stories are told wi [...]
