"This book is a very rich traditional treatise on gnosis and enlightenment. It shows clearly the two-dimensionality of human experience and the unity of truth that encompasses the universe. It also describes myriad aspects of the four dimensions of the self: lower and higher, as well as intellect and reason as well as its opposite illusions and fantasies. A wonderful guide for the practicing Muslim." --Shaykh Fadhalla Haeri, The Academy of Self Knowledge (Founder)
"This is an excellent rendition of a highly difficult and technical text. Tawus Raja has joined together the art of translation and his expertise in the field to make a technical text look easy and simple. The book should be studied with due care and caution, as a superficial understanding of its contents may be misleading, especially for the passionate young uninitiated who are in search of spiritual wayfaring. The enthusiasts should bear in mind that the number of people slipped on this path is far greater than those who have succeeded." --Mohammad Saeed Bahmanpour, Islamic Centre of England
