Description:

The annual festival celebrated in honour of Pakistan’s most popular Sufi saint Lal Shahbaz Qalandar is full of spiritual rapture, ecstasy, trance, magic, and devotion. In this vividly written narrative the renowned anthropologist and Islamologist, Jürgen Wasim Frembgen, takes the reader along with him to experience this unique ritual event and spectacle.

Stefan Weidner, a renowned writer and expert on Islam, has judged this book "German language version" as “one of the most exciting reports we owe to German cultural anthropology in recent decades”.
