Shams Tabrizi: The Doctrine and Discipline of Rumi's Sufi Master


Dr. Seyed Mostafa Azmayesh examines the spiritual educational methods utilised by Jallal edin Rumi’s Sufi master ('Shams Tabrizi')

This lecture, organised by ICC (Inter Cultural Centre) in association with the London Middle East Institute will examine the spiritual educational methods utilised by Rumi’s master ('Shams'). There will be tea/coffee and biscuits available, and there is also the opportunity to listen to live Sufi music.

Jallal edin Rumi is probably the best known Middle Eastern mystical poet. His works, and other peoples commentaries on them, are published world wide. His poems have steadily penetrated the mindset of western societies and have recently become best sellers. Even though Rumi's fame has spread throughout the world, his Sufi teacher and master ('Shams e Tabriz') has strangely remained unknown. The relationship between Shams and Rumi, which produced works that represent unequalled explanations on mystical love, led Rumi to a path that guided him towards his complete immersion in love, with the goal of becoming one with God.

Admission to this lecture is FREE, but interested individuals are advised to pre-register due to limited seating capacity. Please contact:
