9788129118868: The Vision: Reflections On The Way Of The Soul

Among the most popular works of world literature, the writings of Kahlil Gibran are treasured by millions for their depth of insight, passion and timeless spiritual vision. We are pleased to present a series of important new translations of the Arabic writings of Kahlil Gibran. Experts have long noted that Gibran's meaning has, in the past, frequently been obscured by inaccurate renderings that fail to convey the freshness and vitality of his style. The books in this series have been produced by recognised experts in the interpretation of texts in the Arabic language, who combine specialised knowledge of its literary and Philosophical heritage with a fluid, accessible, and contemporary English prose style. The Vision brings together Gibran's Arabic writings concerned with the spiritual life. In twenty-four meditations, essays, and prose poems, Gibran expounds his unique philosophy of life while discussing such perennial themes as Beauty, Nature. Hidden Realities, Human Unity, Tragedy, Pride, Death, and the Immortality of the Soul. Gibran's religious vision is world-embracing and ecumenical. He read widely and was inspired by Buddhism, Vedanta, American Transcendentalists, and Nietzsche, along with his primary influences of Eastern Christianity, Islam, and the folk traditions of his native Near Eastern culture. His fervent belief in humanity's common heritage and shared destiny has made his writings popular the world over and classics of modern religious literature.
