In contrast to his scholarly writings, Ostad Elahi’s oral teachings were always presented in a simple and straightforward manner that made them accessible to everyone. Two volumes of these teachings, compiled and edited by his son, Bahram Elahi, MD, were published posthumously under the title Asar ol-Haqq (Traces of Truth). In response to questions from family members, friends, and visitors from all walks of life, Ostad discussed a variety of topics ranging from the longing for transcendence and the stages of self-knowledge to the role of contemplative practices and the process of spiritual perfection. A short selection from these two volumes was published in 2014 in French as Paroles de Vérité (Words of Truth). Below, several of these sayings have been grouped together by subject matter.
