Heart Meditation

An Introduction to Gnostic Heart Meditation

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.
