Heart Meditation

An Introduction to Gnostic Heart


This website is dedicated to the book ‘Heart Meditation; an introduction to Gnostic Heart meditation’ by Dr Seyed M. Azmayesh. The ancient Gnostic heart meditation is a spiritual exercise, which forms an important part of a Gnostic’s discipline in his spiritual journey towards perfection and becoming a complete person. It is a journey of spiritual evolution towards reaching a state of unity with the universal consciousness. The aim of this site is to transform the book into a living text through regular updates. The book is merely an introduction to this Gnostic exercise, and its teachings need to be followed under the guidance of a guide or a teacher in order for the student to reach perfection. The journey of spiritual evolution is filled with traps laid out by our egos, which a seeker can only overcome with the assistance of an experienced guide or a teacher.

“The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart”


“Everything that is made beautiful and fair and lovely is made for the eye of one who sees.”


“Listen! Clam up your mouth and be silent like an oyster shell, for that tongue of yours is the enemy of the soul, my friend. When the lips are silent, the heart has a hundred tongues” RUMI
