Fall of Adam :: from a sufi perspective

From the blog, Islam from Inside, here is a beautiful audio lecture by scholar, Dr. William Chittick. It is from the lecture, on Ahmad Sam'ani's view of Adam's fall as elaborated in Sam'ani's work, "The Ease of Spirits in Explaining the Names of the All-Conquering King" ("Rawh al-arwah fi sharh asma' al-malik al-fattah").

It's a fascinating and beautiful lecture and i highly recommend you to listen to it. The theme of the lecture is God's Mercy and is elucidated through a beautifully detailed and nuanced exposition of Sam'ani's commentary on the fall of Adam.
