Caravan of Dreams distills the essence of Eastern thought in a feast of stories, sayings, poems, and allegories, collected by one of the world's leading experts in Oriental philosophy. Idries Shah builds up a complete picture of a single consciousness, relating 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.'
