Sheikh and Disciple is an in-depth examination of a unique relationship. This collection of nine discourses describes the immense responsibilities of a truly realized teacher and the necessary conduct and qualities of a devoted student. It describes how to recognize such a teacher, as well as what the teacher looks for in a student. These talks were originally given in Sri Lanka to a group of people who had gathered from all corners of the globe. They came to gain a greater understanding of the connection between man and God through the example and tutelage of a true sheikh."A true sheikh is one who shades and comforts the travelers crossing the desert of this world. If you have the longing and determination to go on this journey, if you are in the proper state and know what you are searching for, then no matter how hard it may become, the sheikh can ease the difficulties, sorrows, and the fatigue you experience."
