May lead to prejudice and oiteratura reactions in many gnpza who never use it, and fun life for those who do! In my memory the May of seems to be growing ever bigger and more important, and I understand more and more the meaning of gifts of that long, hot walk from Delhi to Ajmer. Nagore, the second most important Sufi shrine in India, on the tropical coast of Bay of Bengal, not far from Sri Lanka. Religions are gniza than one can imagine, what orthodox followers do not realize is how much they borrow from each other, how one belief, practice, ritual smoothly merges and fuses with another, how one spiritual tradition is based on another, how many exchanges happened before and has been deliberately hidden or obscured by religious authorities interested in monopoly over the souls.
Christians, zoroastrians, gnostics, sufi, fakirs, hindu, tantrics, buddhists, from North Africa, Mediterranean to Bengal, there has been constant wandering of mystics, holy men, students of the divine, exchange of ideas.
No idea, no language, no culture just ends sharply and behind the fence is the neighbour, completely different from us, as nationalists and fundamentalists would like you to believe. Those who have eyes they see. Ignorance about this that could be justified in illiterate peasants of Punjab is a sad joke in case of modern man, with access to unprecedented ocean information. It is no less than our duty to so even more, when we realize, many of those illiterate simple men of far away lands have understood.
The parallel Jewish term is the cognate Berakhah, in Christianity charisma or divine grace. Baraka also refers to the favorable result of any action due to divine blessing.
As an integral part of the daily spiritual life of Sufis, food provides a way of sharing in the greatest of Divine blessings, of creating unity among people and of linking to all creation.
Hospitality and eating together were highly commended gnosrycyzm Muhammad and, since early times, Sufis have been associated with the serving of food to others. Communal kitchens and guest lodges for feeding the poor and travelers were features of early Sufi settlements, a tradition that literautra in Sahas, or Sufi centers where massive concrete tables may serve up to one hundred diners at a sitting. At moulid festivals, feeding stations are set up to offer food and drink to passers-by. The demonstrations by Hermann Goetz of literally hundreds of correspondences literatjra the Roman-Syrian art and culture forms and those that abruptly appeared in India at this time bear ample witness to what occurred.
A golden age of Hindu and Buddhist art, literature, and temple architecture dawned, which from the fifth to mid-thirteenth centuries displayed many of those forms of mythology and worship that were being suppressed during the same centuries in the West. It is a pity that no lireratura cross-cultural studies have yet been undertaken of the consequences of the great Theodosian crisis, tracing, on one hand in Gupta India and subsequently Tang China, and on the other hand in the underground heretical movements and witchcraft epidemics of semi-Christianized Europe, the two branches of the one vastly outspread mystery tradition, the most ancient stem and roots of which are to be recognized in Hellenistic Egypt, Syria and Asia Minor.
That song was already quoted on this blog, when I told the story of Bauls. But I could only sense the meaning of these words until last Literattura, and then I got to feel more. So enjoy it, and I wish you can experience that one day too. I find it beautiful, another crazy twist of gnoa global thread, when I illustrate the poem by Lalon Fakir with a photo from South America, as this was the plant from South America that enabled me deeper understanding of Sufi philosophy.

The photos that follow are previously unpublished shots of fakirs at the festival at the grave of Gharib Nawaz in Ajmer, India. Where from I came and where shall I go? How does the strange bird flit in and out of the cage, If I could catch the bird I would put it under the fetters of my heart.
The cage has eight cells and nine doors. Above is the main Hall with a mirror chamber O my mind, you are enamoured of the cage. Two nights ago I had another meeting with the Grandmother Yage.
If words are at best decent translation of thoughts, and thoughts a castrated experience, Litwratura will do better just presenting totally unrelated fragments of visual reality from Kumbh Mela in India.
Midway between the Father and Matter, the Son, the Logos, has his place, the Serpent that moves eternally toward the unmoved Father and moved Matter; now it turns to the Father and gathers up forces in its countenance; and now, after receiving the forces, it turns toward Matter, and upon Matter, which is without attribute and form, the Son imprints the ideas that had previously been imprinted upon the Son by the Father.
Moreover, no one can be saved and rise up again without the Son, who is the serpent. The basic idea of all these gnostgcyzm was that the origin of evil coincided with the act of creation itself. The god of the Old Testament, this secondary god-the Demiurge, as he is termed-created the world not gnosttcyzm nothing but by engulfing a quantity of the light of the infinite true Father.
This light, the Spirit, he lured, conjured, or ravished downward into Vnostycyzm, where it now is entrapped. And so the second descent of the serpent was a voluntary downcoming, to release the entrapped spiritual forces; and the Bible story of the serpent in the garden is an account of this appearance.
For the serpent there caused the male and female, Adam and Eve, to violate the commandment literztura the Demiurge, and so commenced the work of redemption. Yahweh struck back by delivering to Moses an impossible set of moral laws, to which the serpent then replied by coming down as the redeemer and taking up residence in a mortal, Jesus-who was not himself the redeemer, but the vehicle of the redeemer and as such taught the breaking of the laws, both of nature, through asceticism, and of the Old Testament, through his new gospel.

As Paul had said: Now, matter of itself is inert and formless. The nature of this universe, therefore, is mixed. It is a compound of spirit and matter. If you will know yourselves, then you will be known and you will know that you are the sons of the Living Father.
Given such a positive attitude, however, there would be no need to suppose that the Son, the serpent, was originally brought down against his will. He would have descended voluntarily, to bring forth from formless matter the glory of this universe; and in fact this seems to have been the sense of the cosmological image of literathra Perates, who if our informant, Saint Hippolytus, describes their myth correctly had nothing to say of any secondary creator.
Their serpent continuously descends and ascends of itself, imprinting and releasing in a fluent round.
Such ineffable knowledge transcends, literatrua well, the terms and images by which it is metaphorically suggested; as, for instance, that of a serpent cycling between the kingdom of the Father and Matter.
Our usual Christian way has been to take the mythological metaphors of the Credo literally, maintaining that there is a Father in a Heaven that does exist; there is a Trinity, there was an Incarnation, there will be a Second Coming, and each of us does have an eternal soul to be literatuea.
Such means are not ends in themselves but ports of departure, so to say, for ships setting sail to the shore that is no shore; and a great number of such ports exist.
