Divine Love in Early Persian Prose

Prof. William C. Chittick

With thanks to the Temenos Academy, we present this video lecture recorded at the Lincoln Centre in London, March 18, 2013.

The servant is a pretext and a means, and the Real is one. The flood of Lordhood arrives, and the dust of mortal nature disappears. The reality increases and the pretext decreases. With the first breeze, the body burns; with the next, the heart. Then the spirit remains limpid, delivered from water and clay.

The obligation of the body is prayer and fasting, and that of the heart is love.
