In Tales of a Modern Sufi, Navit O. Ergin utilizes 24 brief stories to illustrate the points of modern Sufism and how it can guide our lives if we will get out of our own way. The most cogent point made is that we are what we perceive ourselves to be. That statement, if truly internalized and allowed to lead our minds, could be argued to be the actual meaning of life.
With an argument against blind faith, Tales of a Modern Sufi distinguishes itself from most purportedly religious books, making readers realize that Sufism is a completely different approach to life. This jewel of a book is the best argument Iíve ever heard for any religion. If you are searching for something - and frankly, who isnít? - Tales of a Modern Sufi might provide it for you.
