Nizam al-Din Fawa'id al-Fu'ad

Nizam al-Din, Fawa'id al-Fu'ad

The master continued, "If you put oil, pepper, garlic and onion in a cauldron, and merely add water, you have not made a stew. The basis for a stew is meat; the other ingredients are optional. Similarly, spiritual progress depends on detaching yourself from material posessions; other virtuous practices are optional."

Nizam al-Din, "Fawa'id al-Fu'ad"
