Painting Heaven: Polishing the Mirror of the Heart
This illustrated tale introduces children to the wondrous teachings from the Muslim theologian and mystic al-Ghazali (1058–1111CE)
This enchanting tale illustrates how that the human heart is like a rusty mirror which, when polished through beautiful doings, is able to reflect the real essence of all things. In addition to this story is a poem by the renowned poet, Coleman Barks. Both draw on the same account found in Ghazali’s The Marvels of the Heart, Book XXI, of his magnum opus, The Revival of Religious Sciences.
