The 'Ghazal' has long been a part of the literary tradition of Persia. In style, it consists of a number of carefully-crafted stanzas with the author's name appearing in the final one. The ghazals, or poems, included in this collection contain the crystallized philosophy of Sufi Master Molana Shah Maghsoud Sadegh Angha (Professor Angha). Writing at the young age of 23, Professor Angha's words were a fair reflection of his life at the time, and the life he was to unfold. Based originally on a Persian form, they should be treasured simply as beautiful poetry by those people seeking a meaningful way of life. Contents: Introduction; Selections from Ghazaliat; Chants; Glossary; Genealogy of Maktab Tarighat Oveyssi Shahmaghsoudi (School of Islamic Sufism) and list of works by the author.
