These coveted lectures from the great Sufi master's world travels, transport us to a time rich in simplicity and spiritual focus.
We are given antidotes for spiritual diseases of the heart: jealousy, envy, and greed, so we may finally arrive at genuine inner peace. Shaykh Nazim is known for his life-altering lessons, describing how to discipline the ego, reach a state of spiritual surrender, and finally achieve true liberation from the bondage of worldly distraction and pursuits.
Many readers attest that both volumes are filled with divine powers and much sought answers.
Excerpt: “Does anyone think that the ocean is only what appears on its surface? By observing its hue and motion the keen eye may perceive indications of that ocean''s unfathomable depth. The Lord's mercy and compassion are an ocean with no shore, providing endlessly varied vistas for those who sail its surface; but the greatest wonderment and fulfillment is reserved for those "creatures of the sea" for whom that mercy has become their own medium.
The Lord beckons us through a divine love and attraction that has been implanted in our hearts, a love that may be understood and felt consciously as divine by some, and only indirectly as love for His creatures or creation by others. In either case the pull of our heartstrings draws us to those Mercy Oceans, just as our physical bodies feel drawn to a warm and gentle sea.”
