R360.00

Contemplation of the Holy Mysteries (Mashahid al-asrar al-qudsiyya) Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi Thought to be possibly Ibn 'Arabi's first book, the Contemplation of the Holy Mysteries is a major work of mystical literature. It was composed in Andalusia in 1194 (590 AH). It consists of a series of 14 visions, in the form of dramatic conversations with the Divine, interspersed with dazzling visionary episodes. It is written in a style similar to that of the Mawaqif of al-Niffari, the famous tenth-century Iraqi saint. These contemplations are full of astounding insights into the nature of existence, our relationship with Reality, and the way to achieve true happiness. The English translation has been prepared by Pablo Beneito (who edited the original Arabic text) and Cecilia Twinch. It includes a full introduction and notes based on the commentary of one of Ibn 'Arabi's disciples. You are yourself the cloud veiling your own sun! So recognize the essential Reality of your being! The translators Cecilia Twinch has been studying the work of Ibn ĎArabi since 1972, and works as a freelance translator for the Muhyiddin Ibn ĎArabi Society. Pablo Beneito is Professor at the Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies, University of Seville, Spain.
