This special edition of Nasrudin tales, divided into five small hardback volumes, is limited to just 500 sets. Sales from these books will make a significant charitable contribution, with the proceeds going to produce books for Afghan children.


Mulla Nasrudin, the wise fool of Eastern folklore, holds a special place in Sufi studies. The Sufis, who believe that deep intuition is the only real guide to knowledge, use the humorous stories of Nasrudin’s adventures almost like exercises. They ask people to choose a few which especially appeal to them, and turn them over in their mind, making them their own. Sufi teaching masters say that in this way a breakthrough into a higher wisdom can be achieved. A single story can work on many levels, from great humour to initiating profound thought.
