A description of the experience
Ruzbihan Baqli – The Unveiling of Secrets – The Diary of a Sufi Master [translated by Carl Ernst]
76 Showers of Pearls
Then I saw above me an atmosphere of white light, from above which came showers of white pearls. They came from the beauty of the Truth, and he was scattering them on me.
It is beyond expression, nor can intellects comprehend it.
He then hid that world from me.
Then I became occupied with the characteristics of these moments and those unveilings that I had forgotten.
If any man or jinn saw an atom of these worlds, he would melt beneath God’s sublimities - God transcends every description that is not worthy of his power.
