Sufi Symbolism XI

Until you become lost to yourself, you'll not find such a treasure;

One who has lost the way to meeting, cannot have such a state.

ButtonSpiritual States and Mystical Stations

This is the second of three volumes (X, XI, XII) relating to the spiritual states and stations of Sufism. Due to the great number of these stations and states, a major part of the Sufi lexicon was devoted to their exposition. In order to give devotees and adepts of the Sufi Path an indication of the pitfalls which may confront them, or to furnish explanations or examples of what could be expected during their progress, intricate descriptions and elaborate subtleties of these states and stations were often provided.
