Love is the Wine

Tales of a Sufi Master in America

By Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak

Generosity, faith, self-knowledge, submission, love… these themes unfold through the conversations of the Turkish Sufi master Sheikh Muzaffer, head of the Halveti-Jerrahi Order and one of the most important Sufi teachers of our time. A fine storyteller, a mature human being, a respected author in his native country, he was well-suited to bring the richness of the Sufi tradition to the West.

Tales of a Sufi Master in America

By Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak
Edited and compiled by Sheikh Ragip Frager, Ph.D.

“The sheikhs are the pourers of the wine, the dervish is the glass.”

Generosity, faith, self-knowledge, submission, love… these themes unfold through the conversations of the Turkish Sufi master Sheikh Muzaffer, head of the Halveti-Jerrahi Order and one of the most important Sufi teachers of our time. A fine storyteller, a mature human being, a respected author in his native country, he was well-suited to bring the richness of the Sufi tradition to the West. The chapters of this book, skillfully edited and compiled by the noted psychologist Dr. Robert Frager, were derived from talks given during visits to America over the last years of his life.

The editor, Robert Frager, Ph.D. is the founder of the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. Dr. Frager is a sheikh in the Halveti-Jerrahi Order and has written three books on Sufism, “Love is the Wine”, “Heart, Self, and Soul: The Sufi Psychology of Growth, Balance and Harmony” and “Essential Sufism”.
