Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh, 12/10/1926 – 10/10/2008, Master of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order, speaks here with his heir and successor Dr. Alireza Nurbakhsh translating, in the full 40 minute presentation of his last public interview, conducted in March, 2008.
The interview was conducted by filmmaker Llew Smith as part of a prospective documentary film on the subject of mystical experience. It is part of a larger public television documentary project on mysticism and the Abrahamic traditions. In the interview, Dr. Nurbakhsh expresses the limitation of discourse as it relates to inner experience and the peripheral place of religious piety, answering questions about many seemingly pertinent or interesting topics, with insistence on the non-intellectual, immediate experience in Love – of the Truth.
