Sermon delivered by Andrew Harvey on June 30, 2019. Andrew Harvey has spent 40 years devoting himself to the Rumi Renaissance and to Rumi as the prophet of love of the new universal mysticism. And now, he focuses his passion on the other great universal mystical poet, Kabir the powerful poet of India, loved by Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs but whose vision of the One transcends all religions.
In this sermon, Mr. Harvey acts as translator and unifier for Ruminator and Kabir, inviting us to experience the extreme, stunning, mystical dialogue of the heart between these two universal masters. Rumi made us vulnerable to love and now Kabir kills us into the eternal life of truth in embodied Divine humanity. Andrew further presents these two perspectives as an urgent calling to us to take action in response to our immediate climate emergency.
