Sufi Spirit from Bhagavad Gita

To these who are thus
in a constant union with Me
,
and adore Me
with an intense delight of love,
I give the Yoga of understanding
by which they come to Me.

Out of compassion for them,
I, lodged in their self,
lift the blazing lamp of knowledge
and destroy the darkness which is born of the ignorance.

from The Bhagavad Gita translated by Sir Aurobindo (chapter 10, verse 10)

Bhagavad Gita means the Song of the Divine One. They are collection of ancient wisdom from Bharat (India), a collection of inspired knowledge. Its considered a hindu holy scripture, but the wisdom inside it transcend any particular religion or belief.

If you read the verses from Bhagavad Gita, just mentioned here, you will realize how beautifully here the Divine speaks of constant union with God and the attitude of Love. Both of this two aspect are central to Sufi (mystic) spirit. It is the union with the Beloved God is what aspire a sufi.

And through the Divine Union and the Love of the Divine - the special knowledge are given into the heart of the mystic. In sufi terminology it is called the unveiling, when the door of meanings are opened to them.

the word Yoga also means union or to unite.
