However, Sufism, along with all religious mysticism acknowledges that all physical things, including beautiful temples and saintly tombs are temporal and ephermal. So while it is undoubtedly sad that they have been destroyed, and humanity has been robbed of yet another element of their world heritage, lets not forget that Sufism, like all mysticisms, places its emphasis on the temple of the human heart. So at this time lets peer into the human heart and look at the more important issue of what is causing the conflict in Mali, and not only that, what is causing all the conflict and suffering in the world.
