A Perfumed Scorpion - Shah, Idries

The perfuming of a scorpion referred to by the great Sufi teacher Bahaudin symbolises hypocrisy and self-deception. Here, Idris Shah directs attention to both the perfume and the scorpion - the overlay and the reality in psychology, human behaviour and in the learning process.
