From a Letter by Henry Corbin; " I cannot say everything in a letter. Nonetheless, I do want to tell you right now how I am struck by the convergence of our research, ....What I mean is that I have been guided by the way in which the great theosophist Ibn 'Arabi and his School meditated on tawhid ("the Attestation of the One") to staggering heights."
"There is also a tradition that Dzogchen,and Padmasambhava, come from a place called Oddiyana in Shamballa. Texts from this same Tun huang site identify Oddiyana as "Shamis en Balkh" in modern day Balkh, Afghanistan where many ruins, Buddhist stupas and monasteries exist. This is the town oft associated with Padmasambhava, and Rabia and Rumi as well. Although Padmasambhava is usually thought to be Indian, it is possible that he is from the Afghanistan region also associated with his name.
ILLUMINATIONISM or Illuminationist Philosophy first introduced in the 12th century as a complete, reconstructed system distinct both from the Peripatetic philosophy of Avicenna (d. 1037) and from theological philosophy. Most medieval historians concur that Illuminationist philosophy is a “novel” and a most complete system constructed by the young Persian philosopher Šehāb-al-Din Yaḥyā b. Amirak Sohravardi (1155-91).
The basic meaning of ešrāq (Illumination) is “rising,” more precisely “rising of the sun”; Signifying a special intuitive mode of cognition. Ishrāq in its general, non-technical usage in ordinary language, signifies the “mystical” as well as the range of extraordinary types of knowledge, including personal inspiration
Suhrawardi (d. 1191) hailed from north-west Iran, and became known posthumously as Shaikh al-Ishraq, meaning "teacher of illumination." There are several sparse thirteenth century biographies, including one by the partisan Shams al-Din Shahrazuri (died after 1288), who profiled Suhrawardi as a philosopher and contemplative with Sufi affinities.

Deewani reached its zenith in the 17th century, thanks to the famous calligrapher Shala Pasha.

Listen to the reed flute, how it cries telling of separation Saying "Ever since I was severed from the reed field, men and women have lamented in the presence of my shrill cries. Yes I want a heart which is torn, torn from separation, so that I may sing of this yearning ache."
THE bird of gardens sang unto the rose, New blown in the clear dawn: "Bow down thy head! As fair as thou within this garden close, Many have bloomed and died." She laughed and said "That I am born to fade grieves not my heart But never was it a true lover's part To vex with bitter words his love's repose."

A Rosemont Journey's insight:
So inspiring, felicitous! ("the Attestation of the One")
One of the open secret of love is that the one who is loved, is remembered. It is said, "Love those who are loved by Allah." If one come to know the friends, come to love them, those who were distributor of the message of Love and Peace, then inevitably one shall be attracted to the saints, physically or in absence of that. That is the reality of people attracted to the Shrines of the Sufi Saints.
Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi is unquestionably one of the most profound and remarkable figures in the history of world spirituality.
