Tent of Abraham

In the mystic wilderness there is a great tent raised, the tent of Abraham, the enlightened one - who symbolizes humanity's awakening to Oneness. Abraham is the archetypal father from whom flows the three mystic rivers of Hasidim, Ihidaya, and Sufiyya - the mystical fellowships of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; and to whom they all return.

Prophetic figure of Abraham is the ideal and symbol of transcendence. Abraham represent the point in the history of human consciousness where major shift in evolution took place, he is the father of integral understanding of reality and it was the time when Divine reality was realized in the mystical bond of friendship.

Who can be better in religion than one who submits entirely to The Divine, does good, and follows the way of Abraham the true in Faith? For God chose Abraham as a friend.
- The Quran 4:125

Messenger of God, Abraham is not limited to any one religion but belongs to all. There is no claim of exclusiveness because the figure of Abraham, a perfect Archetypal Buddha figure of human consciousness, transcends all exclusiveness. About the universal reality of Abraham, the Final Testament: Quran points out to those who can not transcend their limiting beliefs and concepts by saying:

O People of the Scriptures! Why you dispute about Abraham, when the Torah and the Gospel were not revealed till after him? Have you no understanding!

Abraham was neither a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was true in faith, and bowed his will to Divine will, and he joined not duality with the Divine.

Without doubt, among mankind, the nearest of kin to Abraham, are those who follow him, as are also this Prophet and those who believe: And God is the Protecting Guardian of those who attained faith.
- The Quran, 3: 65,67,68

There is a call coming out of the tent of Abraham that fills the mystic landscape of human heart from time immemorial. For a moment you may delude yourself thinking there are three calls coming from three directions, but if you attune to them fully, you will realize it is only a singular call, it always was one call and ever will be.

Shma Yisrael,
Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Echad.

Hear O Israel,
the LORD our God is one LORD.

Abwûn d'bwaschmâja
Nethkâdasch schmach
Têtê malkuthach.
Nehwê tzevjânach aikâna
d'bwaschmâja af b'arha.

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Thy Name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done,
in all planes of reality.

Bismi-llah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim

Qul-huwa- Allahu Ahad

Lam yalid wa lam yulad
wa lam yakun lahu kufu'an-Ahad

In the Holy Name of God,
Universally Loving, Singularly Compassionate.

Say that the secret of secrets is this:
God is One, The One and Only One.
The Infinite Presence and Everlasting Refuge
in Whom all things finally return.
God has no beginning, and never was begun,
and beside Divine Reality, there is no other.
