The process of spiritual perfection

The process of spiritual perfectionThe idea of a self-transformative process leading to a better self is probably at the root of spirituality. It suggests the possibility of a higher form of happiness, inseparable from a state of moral perfection, an accomplished wisdom synonymous with true and perfect humanity.
This lecture presents a summary of Ostad Elahi’s thoughts on what he calls the process of spiritual perfection. A process that fulfills the purpose of every being, which is to return to its Origin and thus reach the state of Perfection; it is driven by precise laws and dependent on specific means, such as human beings’ voluntary efforts to shape their thought and develop divine virtues.

      Does anyone know a forum where I can have healthy debates about Ostad Elahi’s philosophy?

    What a great review of process of perfection. The lecture was very helpful. The questions at the end were great, especially with the followed answers. It made me look a bit closer on what the lecture covered. Thank you.

    This is a great presentation. Setting this in the context of the historical view on moral progress really fortifies my understanding of what the process of perfection truly entails. As I reflect on what I can do on a daily basis to practice natural spirituality, I will take 2 aspects from this video: The first, that this world should be used to gain elementary understanding, and that while I am here, I must work to take this to the next world. Secondly, that supreme bliss of Perfection only comes to those who have transformed their self…Thank you for a great presentation.

    The process of perfection is described at once thoroughly and concisely, the pieces follow one after another so smoothly in such a way that makes the listener absorbs and dissolves the content within. Thanks for posting this lecture.

    Thank you ever so much for such a clear and succinct presentation of the main points of Ostad Elahi’s process of spiritual perfection. I think this is a great way to introduce and provide to people unfamiliar with Ostad’s philosophy, a comprehensive overview in less than twelve minutes. I find this presentation most inspiring.
