Shah's Tales of the Dervishes , a collection of narratives gathered from classical Sufi texts and oral sources spanning a period from the 7th to the 20th centuries, gives Sanai's version. Parallels with other religious traditions are obvious, wherever narratives are used instructionally rather than to generate or perpetuate belief or conformity. Examples might be Zen koans , Hasidic tales, and the parables of Jesus. Sometimes, as in The Tiger, the Brahmin and the Jackal or The Blind men and an elephant, versions of the same story are put to use.

His poems are filled with Sufi ideas of divine union with the Beloved, and Emerson found his God — the oversoul — in the poetry of Hafiz. Years later, while conducting research on Emerson for my Early American Literature class at the University of North Florida, I came across an essay that began like this:.

The eye is the first circle; the horizon which it forms is the second; and throughout nature this primary figure is repeated without end. Goose bumps exploded all over my skin.
I reached into the depths of my memory and rummaged around until I pulled out a thin, weak strand of memory.
