The late Martin Lings (1909-2005), renowned author on Islam, Sufism, Shakespeare, and the arts and thought of traditional civilizations, gave an interview in late 1993 in which he spoke about his spiritual influences. He discussed his early spiritual search, his readings of René Guénon and Frithjof Schuon, and how he came to be associated with these two great Perennialist figures. These seven video clips are excerpts from that conversation that deal with his own spiritual development.
