Book Description

The Nightingale in the Garden of Love is a translation of the spiritual poems of the great Ottoman Sufi master, Mehmed Muhyiddin Uftade (1490-1580). Uftade was born and lived in Bursa, a hugely important spiritual centre at the height of the Ottoman Empire. He was founder of the Jelvetiyye dervish order, through the training of his famous disciple, Aziz Mahmud Hudayi. These poems express Uftade’s spiritual quest in simple, direct language and are presented here for the first time in English.
