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.

enchanting stories interspersed with thought provoking sayings, though occasionally i was unsure whether a saying was part of the story. it is beautifully read and altogether a treat
Great piece of work from and outstanding person. So many valuable observations.I will read it again and again, because the lessons are to sink in with time and practice. Highly recommend.
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.
