Professor Nasr’s key-note address touches upon the universal doctrine of the heart as the center of the human microcosm in all its levels, from the vital to the emotive to the intellectual and spiritual. It deals with methods of reaching the heart, primarily through prayer, drawing from the teachings of Islam, Christianity and other religions.
