In The Light of Knowledge Notes and Bibliography

Unfortunately the original detailed notes were lost when the copies of the manuscript were burnt (yes, really) or during the 40 or so years a manuscript was left in a drawer somewhere. However, the quotes can be found by any interested person in only a few books that are now generally available in electronic or paper format. This was not the case 40 years ago.

These include:

Garden of Mystery: The Gulshani-i Raz of Shabistari (Classics of Sufi Poetry Series) by Mahmud Shabistari
The Secret Rose Garden by Mahmud Shabistari
Shabistari: Life & Poems (Introduction to Sufi Poets Series) (Volume 40)
