There have been many saints, sages and spiritual teachers throughout the history of greater India. In a corner of present-day Pakistan, where the great Indus River cuts across the Puniab, are the beautiful and atmospheric remains of a number of great blue-tiled mausoleums and mosques. These are the tombs and monuments that acknowledge a small band of Muslim devotees, the Sufis.
The book also includes some of the more well-known poems of Bulleh Shah, prose as fine and melodious as any outside the Punjab. In this small pocket edition, the life and teachings of Bulleh Shah and the Sufi Mystics are detailed in a$ easy-to-read format.

They work in Kathmandu every winter and always relish returning to the Annapurna region, one of their favourite trekking haunts.
