The “Ismaili-Sufi Collection of Devotional expression: Journey Towards Love and Liberation” is a collection of Ismaili-Sufi or Ismaili and Sufi poetry comprising devotional expression that revolves around love, freedom, light, beauty, troubles, hopes, fears and desires. It represents a personal expression of the joys of life and its beautiful and at times weighty struggles. The book consists of 218 poems that are loosely organized in seven chapters with short and sincere introduction. Inspired by classical Persian Sufi poetry, the book creates its own expression of love by attempting to go beyond the tradition while firmly striving to be rooted in the principles of Ismaili and Sufi teachings. Adorned with classical religio-poetic metaphors and symbolism, the book provides rich devotional material for readers who are enchanted by life in its broadest sense.
