Know Yourself

By Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi / Awhad al-din Balyani

Translated from the Arabic by Cecilia Twinch

The power of ideas has been expressed in many ways. It is also true of a wrong idea, illusion, and the most deep-rooted and limiting of ideas is the idea of our own existence. "Know Yourself" is a clearing away of misconceptions, so that a true perception may appear.

This book has been valued and read for hundreds of years. It is an enduring book, because of its directness and clarity.

The Ruh al-Quds and Durrat al-Fakhirah, translated with introduction and notes by Ralph Austin

Know Yourself

Introduction to Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi's Metaphysics of Unity

Extracts from The Mystical Philosophy of Muhid Din Ibnul Arabi by A.E. Affifi

Affifi’s work had four main sections. The first was devoted to what Ibn ‘Arabi said about Being and Reality, the second collated what he wrote about insani kamil (the Logos, the perfect human being). The third dealt with knowledge and varieties of mystical knowledge, and the fourth considered aspects of the path of return. The result was a rather formal overview, but one rich in quotations from Ibn ‘Arabi’s writings, and reflecting the breadth of his exposition.

The extracts presented here as a continuous text were first put together many years ago by Bulent Rauf, consultant to the Beshara Trust until his death in 1987. His intention was to provide a complete introductory guide to the language and thought of Ibn ‘Arabi, particularly those aspects of his doctrine which refer to the unity of being and the perfectability of man.

Long known simply as the ‘Twenty-nine Pages’ from the format of its original printing, this text has been a foundation for study at the Beshara School of Intensive Esoteric Education, where it has been read prior to Ibn ‘Arabi’s own more demanding works such as the Fusus al-Hikam. The rich content, incisiveness and extraordinary scope of the passages from Ibn ‘Arabi make it an invaluable reference for all students of mysticism and the spiritual life, whatever their background.


Wisdom of the Prophets

Know Yourself

By Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi

Twelve chapters of the Fusus al-Hikam, translated from Arabic to French by Titus Burkhardt and from French to English by Angela Culme-Seymour

“This is a translation of what is probably the most significant and influential of all Ibn ‘Arabi’s books. The work is beautifully written and the translation itself is as accurate and evocative as any we could imagine. ‘Arabi’s concept of a totally unified and unifying spiritual perspective is well expressed.”

Titus Burkhardt’s translation was intended as an introduction to the text, and it is probably still the best starting point there is, supported by footnotes which reflect his deep knowledge of the great spiritual traditions.
