Divine Love

By • Apr 1st, 2012 • Category: Lectures, Mysticism

The greatest contribution of mystics to human spirituality is their discovery of love. But, love always goes hand in hand with beauty. Mystics discovered that God is not only Almighty and Majestic, but also Beautiful. It is precisely the Divine’s captivating beauty that persuades a person to surrender her heart and soul to God. In the absence of beauty and love, our spiritual quest will quickly degenerate into dogmatism and formalism. What is Divine Love? How does Divine Love manifest itself? What are its essential characteristics? This lectures will draw upon the Islamic and Christian sources to answer these questions.
