Using this tale recounted by the Persian mystical poet Rumi as a starting point, Leili Anvar introduces here the notion of imperious self.
The imperious self is a central concept in Ostad Elahi's philosophy. It is this product of the human psyche against which we must relentlessly struggle in order to make spiritual progress, for it is the origin of those of our impulses that systematically and insidiously arise to contradict correct ethical thoughts.
In her analysis of Rumi's anecdote, shedding some light on its moral and spiritual significance, Leili Anvar reminds us of the power of this "hideous dragon roaring like a lion" that can devour us instantly even though it seemed asleep… Rather than merely describing its various manifestations and deceptions, she underlines the "risk avoidance strategy" that was prescribed by the spiritualities of the past to deal with the imperious self. The idea was to retire from society so as to keep the imperious self away from all stimulation. Leili Anvar thus identifies one of the characteristics of Ostad Elahi's spirituality, that is, the fact that rather than sedating the imperious self, we should battle it head-on.
