A description of the experience
Shaikh Ahmad Ahsa’i – Kitab Sharh al-Ziyara [translated by Henry Corbin and Nancy Pearson]
The Spirit is the real man, he to whom one speaks, he who assumes. The visible organism of his material body is to him an abode in which he finds himself imprisoned, but into which he has been made to descend, because it is for him an instrument thanks to which he attains exoteric and esoteric knowledge.
