The book is a mine of empirical information collected at the Nizamuddin dargah, showing how a set of beliefs is used to forge the relationship between the pir and his murid. This work discovers that piri-muridi aims at making the disciple see God in all things while very often allowing him to enjoy wordly success. This is achieved through a lengthy socialization process that spans a period of time ranging from twelve years to a lifetime.
