Lecture Summary 

  • How do we know the world, ourselves, and our Creator?
  • Who is a true scholar?
  • What is direct ‘tasting’ of reality?

Imam al-Ghazali answers these and other questions, presenting a comprehensive vision of the human being and the nobility of knowledge, study, and teaching.

The lectures are given in the Anatolian city of Bursa, in the historic Tekke of Karabas-i Veli. Built in 1550, the Tekke was one of four tekkes belonging to the Mevlevi Order in Bursa until 1925, when it was turned to secular use. Recently restored, it is a centre for Islamic arts, music, and conferences. The complex includes reception rooms, a large garden, a graveyard, and a small museum. The songs, known as ilahis, are performed by Bursa’s most popular group of religious singers, the Bursa Türk Musigi Toplulugu (Bursa Turkish Music Ensemble).

The songs performed are:
Yunus Emre, ‘Bana bu ten gerekmez’ (Sehnaz)
Ebubekir Kani Efendi, ‘Gubar-i payine almam’ (Sehnaz)
Yunus Emre, ‘Gelin gidelim efendim’ (Hicaz)
Mehmet Nasûhi Efendi, ‘Gönül mazhard?r envar-i cemale’ (Beyati arabân)
Nafia Muhasebecisi Sadi Bey, ‘Intisabim tâ ezelden’ (Rast)
