The Fravartis pt.6

Henry Corbin:


“The victory of the soul incarnated in terrestrial existence is measured by the degree of this restoration /transfiguration of the world and the expulsion of the powers of darkness from the existencial
sphere human,natural and angelic- restoring the
“paradisical purity”,that is, by the degree of the soul´s
Xvarnah (Light-of-glory, “substance of superessential
luminousity”), of its growth toward its celestial existence to
come, of it´s resurrection body, the substance of which, reciprocally, is made of that celestial Earth
which is its action and its work.”
pp.37 Spiritual
Body and Celestial Earth
.


This course is what Corbin´s book Spiritual Body and Celestial Earth – map through his writing as well as a compilation of several representative voices of the “tradition” – not the least among them being the “Oriental” Yahya Suhrawardi.
Here Man cannot help but be
implicated and responsible in the reintegration of being,
and a progressive “redemption” – his past obligates
him, his future beckons and begs him..
