xiii XIV PREFACE can provide the basis for a positive encounter, for example, symbols, rituals, techniques.
Finally, the series closes with a dictionary of world spirituality.
In Islam, the Spirit breathes through all that reveals the One and leads to the One, for Islam's ultimate purpose is to reveal the Unity of the Divine Principle and to integrate the world of multiplicity in the light of that Unity.
Spirituality in Islam is inseparable from the awareness of the One, of Allah, and a life lived according to His Will.
