Jesus and the Sufi Saint

Not very long ago, I found myself at the Tomb of Salim Chisti near Agra, India (I know, I know, but stick with me).

All around the tomb are men selling bits of thread and they assure you that the proceeds of the sales go to charity. People who buy the threads them tie them to the marble screens around the tomb and
