Reviews
Craig Pruess, composer/musician

Worship and faith are highly personal matters, and in our emerging world of love, peace and compassion, these will be respected for every individual, even if different forms of personal worship or faith occur in the same family. Each has his or her own way to commune with that universal Divine presence that is part of us all, just as Yassawi's work is universal.

Katherine Fenton - Actress/Broadcaster

As an English speaker I am so grateful for this translation, which captures the power, warmth, texture and grace of these powerful verses. Each Hikmet is like a little journey for the soul, where the language wraps around you, transporting you to a place of inner transformation. It is a pleasure to dip into every day!

Robert Sachs - Author on Tibetan Buddhist teachings

In Divine Wisdom, spiritual aspirant Hoja Ahmed Yassawi sings his heart out. In the time of life when mortality reveals itself more evidently, Yassawi reflects on his life honestly. He wishes for anyone reading his Hikmet to be inspired to make a similar honest inquiry to reach a faith unshakeable, loving, and dedicated so as to alleviate the suffering of his fellow humankind.
