The Nasruddin stories, known throughout the Middle East, constitute one of the strangest achievements in the history of metaphysics. Superficially, most of the Nasruddin stories may be used as jokes. They are told and retold endlessly in the tea houses and caravanserais, in the homes and on the radio waves of Asia. But, it is inherent in the Nasruddin story, that it may be understood of many depths. There is the joke, the moral- and the little extra which brings the consciousness of the potential mystic a little further on the way of realization. The Character The figure and reputation of Nasruddin are well known in Turkey and, indeed, many parts of Central Asia. Nasruddin has always been the universal uncle ; sometimes a wise man, sometimes a fool. He is everyman in the sense that he finds himself in so many and varied situations, some of them of his own making, that show every strength and weakness of human character. He belongs to us all, rich. poor, urban or town dweller and reflects many facets of human reaction to the most complex or unusual situations. His stories all contain a lesson, however comical or seemingly stupidly he may seem to behave. His stories, for young and old, have a fascination and a humour that is kind, gentle and thoughtful. Contents embedded in authentic classical Turkish music and songs this CD is presenting 10 chapters about this famous character: The Everyday Life of Nasruddin; Nasruddin at Dinner; Nasruddin at Work; Nasruddin's Animals; Nasruddin and his Wife; Nasruddin Today; Nasruddin and the Philosophy; Nasruddin and the Children; Nasruddin and Money; Nasruddin's Speech; Some of the music pieces have been recorded during a live concert in Berlin Philharmony. One title is played with as many as 28 instruments. Some of the pieces have been composed especially for the Nasruddin CD. The predecessor of this English Audio Book the German CD Mullah Nasrudin Orientalische Eulenspiegelein has been sold out and will be replaced in Q 1/07 by the translation of this English version, produced with professional German mother tongue speakers/actors accompanied by the same music.

Mulla Nasruddin Today Today we are talking about globalization, the communication-age. Media and supersonic means of transportation give us the impression of shrinking distances. The world is growing together - not only politically and economically. Globalization has very polarizing effects in different parts of the world and within different groups of people. We do experience a new form of migration out of and into a number of countries because of various reasons. All of this lets us meet people from different origins, of different colors and looks, different cultures and last not least with different religions. Very often we are meeting each other with biased opinions. Things we have heard, read or just some strange feeling. Wouldn´t it be beautiful to experience the world as colorful, miscellaneous and with its existing plurality. This will require to be open-minded in each direction, to learn about each other. Our titel-hero will help us with his entertaining, humorous and wise manner to quell anxieties towards strangers and to aim a future with priority in the unifying and not separating aspects of life. Let us share Mulla Nasruddin´s jokes and wisdom to help us experiencing a tiny cross-cultural step into a future with lively integration. Lots of fun with Mulla Nasruddin wishes --Dieter L. Goebel
