Importance of Ziyaraah (visiting Sufi Sanits / Shrines) The
importance of visiting / spending time / staying with the Saints
while they are alive and once they are accepted into God (freed
from the body limitations
and into the Absolute) is simply because they are Teachers.
Spiritual Teachers extend Inward transformation to those
seek help from Them to be able to advance in the spiritual
Their Teachings are primarily in Silence. It is a heart-to-heart
( core of existence - to - core of existence ) communication
that physical senses and the intellect fail to register.
Hence difficult to comprehend.
Silent communications are real to those who have experienced
IT. It is manifold stronger, purer, intense and is sure,
whenever one visits the physical remains of a Saint
resting in His tomb / Their tombs all over this planet
at their Designated spots / places.
Some experience / see light in Saints tomb / tombs.
In Saints company, those sitting with Saint /
Saints are enveloped in Light.
A Saints tomb ( resting place of Saints
body after Their soul has left the body behind ) is
a Threshold to / between corporeal and God. In day-to-day
life, we are able to notice light coming out through
the openings of a well-lit building at night. Those
visiting a Saints tomb ( Threshold ) the light
will fall upon provided they are right at the opening
( Threshold. )
Saints Teachings and Blessings continue to Benefit
those seek during Saints life in this world and
Saints life hereafter as the Teachings are extended
to a seeker in silence / Absolute silence ( imperceptible
to the corporeal. )
Sitting with a Saint helps the internal faculties to
harmonize, integrate, become silent and inwardly peaceful
to begin with. Once the rush, gush, wandering nature
is calmed, doubts settle and confusions clear the Image
( Qualities both corporeal and spiritual ) of the Saint
/ Truth / God is Imprinted / Reflected into the inward
reality of the seeker, in silence. Hence Become.
A seeker to begin with is like a mirror reflecting the
Image ( Qualities of the Saint / Saints ) followed by
reflecting Light like a diamond and finally becomes
the Meaning / Truth i.e. the state of being Self-Luminous.
Sitting in the company of a Saint during their physical
presence and sitting in a Saints tomb is same.
In a Saints tomb it is far more real real
