The Mogul court poet Fayzi (AD 1547–95) is credited with the composition of the Shariq al-ma`rifa, a Persian text offering an interpretation of Indian philosophy drawing on Sufi and Neoplatonic (Illuminationist) terms and categories. This article examines how the author subordinates Vedantic thought to an Islamicate framework.
