This book discusses mysticism and its possible contributions to a  positive common human future. It is organized into three parts -  “Studies of Mystical Traditions,” “Comparative Studies of Mystical  Traditions,” and “Social and Ethical Implications." The approach is  philosophical and critical. The contributors differ on whether or not  mystical traditions would restore peaceful living and peaceful  coexistence. However, the problem before this manuscript is the growing  pain and suffering caused by greed in the world, greed causing economic  disequilibrium, racism and divisiveness causing social unrest resulting  in mass migration and refugees’ crisis.   Through the lens of “mystical  traditions," the manuscript proposes a balance approach between material  and spiritual needs of people. To strengthen human spiritualty, the  manuscript emphasizes practicing meditation, music, prayers, zikr, yoga,  mindfulness, fasting and other methods of spiritual revival for peace  within self and with others.
