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. The following is a written adaptation of a lecture given by Leili Anvar in French. This tale is an excerpt from the educational work of the thirteenth century Persian mystical poet Rumi, in which he recounts anecdotes like this one and draws spiritual lessons from them. Here the imperious self is depicted as a snake or a dragon, or perhaps something in between. The significance of Ostad Elahi and Malek Jân Nemati's spiritual heritage is discussed during an interview of two specialists of the mystical traditions of Iran: Leili Anvar, Associate Professor of Persian literature at the Institut National des Langues et des Civilisations Orientales (Paris), and Christian Jambet, islamologist and Professor of philosophy (Paris).

Leili Anvar, a Professor of Persian language and literature at the Institut National des Langues et Civilizations Orientales (INALCO) in Paris, says that the French have a dreamlike image of Persian poetry.
Anvar, who last week received Iran's Book of the Year Award for her French translation of "Le cantique des oiseaux" (The Conference of the Bird) by Persian poet and mystic Attar Neyshaburi (C. 1145-1221), said that her personal interest in mystical literature inspired her to translate these types of works.
