Dr. İbrahim IŞILTAN

Özet


The seven stages of the spiritual journey according to khalwatî tradition and more specifically according to Sofyalı Balî Efendi.
Understanding the stages of evolution through which the soul of the spiritual traveller journeys in his quest towards Divine reality is an essential question in Sufism. Sufi schools and brother-hoods use various methods and forms in order to explain this spiri-tual evolution, it is generally being referred to as 'sulûk' 'spiritual journey' or 'sayru sulûk' 'initiation path'. In our article, we have de-scribed the seven stages of the spiritual journey according to khalwatîs sufis and more specifically to Sofyali Balî Efendi. According to khalwatî tradition the heart of the salik embarked on his spiritual journey becomes the place where various spiritual revelations unveil as a result of the purification process of the soul which takes on a new form as it goes through the stages of personal transmutation. So, at the end of his spiritual journey, the salik reaches the stage where he has become a perfect man, as being the spiritual representative of the Prophet (sav), and he begins to spiritually guide the other travellers who wish to embark on their ascent towards the divine world.
