Shamis-en-balkh and Historical Shambhala: Search results for sufi

Shamis-en-balkh and Historical Shambhala: Search results for sufi | Sufi Mystic & Poets | Scoop.it
A Rosemont Journey's insight:

"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

Kevin (R. D.) Shepherd: Suhrawardi and Ishraqi Philosophy

Kevin (R. D.) Shepherd: Suhrawardi and Ishraqi Philosophy | Sufi Mystic & Poets | Scoop.it
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.

Come, come, whoever you are come again,
You are infidel, or Majus,
Become idolatrous, come as you are,,
Of repentance, not of despair, hopelessness,
You violated your swear A hundred times, come as you are ...

We have to sow a seed, we can clean the field and another ...

Since we are you without me, I love you too, nice self these festivals ...

THE SONG OF THE REED (part one) | Sufi Mystic & Poets | Scoop.it

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."

A Rosemont Journey's insight:

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."
