Master of the Jinn, by Irving Karchmar

Considered by some reviewers as a "Masterpiece of Modern Islamic Mysticism" and "Awe Inspiring Mystical Adventure", Master of the Jinn, written by Irving Karchmar is a spiritual book which brings wisdom and hidden truths to those mystics (from any religion and thought) through didactic means, as well as parables, imagination, and above all, treasures covered with simplicity. I have personally read some excerpts from this book, and the truth is, I saw a lot of my personal struggle, my discoveries, reflected all through these lines.

Irving Karchmar, the 59 year old author of Master of the Jinn, holds a Masters degree in Philosophy from DePaul University in Chicago. He has been a poet, writer, editor and publisher for many years, and a darvish of the Nimatullahi Sufi order since 1992. He now lives in Sag Harbor, New York, where he is currently at work on his second novel, a sequel entitled Tale of the Jinn.

Here are two audio excerpts from the book. The first one belongs to the Book 1, Chapter 1, entitled "The Master". The second one is a story called "The Judgement of God. A Sufi Tale".

Gather and enjoy.
