Rumi and the Sufi Tradition (Used)

by Moyne, John A.

Publisher: Global Scholarly Publications

Binding: Paperback

Book ID: 9781883058982, 1883058988

Description

A salient feature of Sufism, is the notion of a union between an individual and the Divine being. This union, which is an antithesis of alienation, is the most critical problem of humanity. This book explores the concept of mystical union and other major teachings of the great Iranian (Persian) mystic poet, Mowlana Jalaluddin Mohammad, known in the west as "Rumi." In addition to offering a translation of his most representative poems, this book examines the view that many rituals and the basic doctrine of Sufism originate from the ancient, pre-Islamic Indo-Iranian traditions as well as from Hellenistic philosophy and culture. Mowlana Rumi wrote his masterpiece, The Masnavi, in Persian language ( the language of Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and some parts of the Middle East) but he was also well versed in the Greek language as is indicated by his Greek poetry, which is translated into English for the first time in this volume. This book is written by a foremost authority on Mowlana Rumi. Unlike many recently published books on this subject, written primarily by those who do not even read or speak the Persian language and hence have had to rely upon a few available secondary and tertiary sources in English, Professor Moyne draws upon the works of Mowlana Rumi in the original language in which they were written.

Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book.

The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution.

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
