Conference for Ethical-Mystical Ideas of Imam Khomeini

Chairman of the Conference: Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi Amoli
Time of Observation: 7-8 Khordad,1382
Place: Auditorium for the meetings in Imam Khomeini’s Seminary

The conference for Ethical-Mystical Ideas of Imam Khomeini started its work in 1380 with the aim of investigating and elucidating more and more the insights and practical policy f the Imam in the area of ethic and mysticism. The reason for the indication of the subject was that the Imam’s thought on the course of ethic and mysticism had remained relatively unexplored with regard to researching. Therefore, it seemed to be seriously necessary for the society to become aware of the facts to follow the deceased Leader’s mystical conduct in their life.

            During the past two years before the proposal for the holding of this conference could be approved, several scientific activities were done such as the following: a collection of scientific articles, some academic interviews, collecting some mystical and ethical texts about the Imam’s ideas, some references, publication of some editions of the Magazine Ishraq, gathering some ethical-mystical letters written by the Imam, the theological letter and praying letters of Imam Khomeini, and compiling some books separate from these works.


  • Mystical Conference—Mystical Letter

This is a book containing a collection of Imam Khomeini’s mystical-ethical letters that have been written since his youth (Age 34) up to a few months before his demise. The great number of these letters dated after the Revolution is expressive of his great interest in such topics by the side of his political leadership in the eventful period after the victory. Publication of these letters together with explanation of some idiomatic expressions has made them easier for common readers to understand ethical-mystical advice and instructions of the Imam, and this has been what the deceased Imam persisted in so much.


  • Mystical Conference--Theological Letter (a book)


Writing theological letters has an ancient history. Some mystic scholars used to write down their whisperings-murmerings with God and let the others benefit from their enthusiastic fervency of the fire of their love. Although the deceased Imam did not arrange a theological collection in this style, the whole of his writings that start with “O God, O Lord or my God” is evidently interesting and worth reading.





  •      Mystical Conference--Praying Letter


The above, a book title, is a collection of prayers which the Imam has said, issued or chanted in different times. Evidently, a person’s prayings are indicative of his superior desires and his higher personality, particularly when the various sides of the prayers could be dealt with whether in speech or in writing. This collection, more than its being a research work, displays the Imam’s superior desires and ideals for the public.

  • Mystical Conference-Ethic/Histology


Although Imam Khomeini(s) had been a famous mystic, a high-ranking jurist, a competent reformist and a great fighter before he could be a powerful poet, the position of his delicate, fluent poems is worth deliberating over and paying attention to. The present research has sought to analyze the Imam’s works in verse; the writer has divided the poems of the poets of the world into two kinds of introverted and extroverted and said: It is easy to consider the Imam’s poems as introverted, because this introversion has caused him to go away from the specific wording and mood of poetry. This collection of the Imam’s contains one introduction and three chapters as follows:


1-      Checking the poems for the element of rhythm,

2-      Checking them for the element of harmony.

3-      Checking them for words and meanings.


     And at the end, a selection of the most elegant sonnets of that poetic work, the table of poetic alignments and the table for distribution of rhymes have been attached thereto.



  • Mystical Conference--Ethic/Scientific Interviews


This book contains a collection of scientific interviews with some scholars of the theological colleges and universities or with some old companions and relatives of the Imam. The main theme of such interviews has been about the attitude, individual morality, and his governmental policy. In this collection, the texts of some panels for the place of mysticism and ethic in seminaries and universities as well as some inaugural and final speeches of conference ceremonies have been included.


  • Mystical Conference--Descriptional sources


Doing deep research is based on the researcher’s complete information and perfect knowledge about the works of other previous scholars in the respective subject. Therefore, the necessity and importance of different sources will become evident. This collection has introduced Imam Khomeini’s ethical-mystical works, his principal works known as references for his writings, and some works about the Imam’s ethical-mystical thoughts.


  • Mystical Conference--Abstracts of Conference articles


This book is a collection of the abstracts of 248 articles received by the conference. Since they were of different sizes, we first chose about half of them on the basis of subject attraction; but then in order to honor the efforts of all those who had accepted the invitation of the conference with regard to writing articles, we had the abstracts of all articles printed and published for anyone interested in reading them.


  •     Publication “Ishraq” (5 editions)


Newsletter “Ishraq” is another activity of the conference Committee which has tried to publish some parts of articles, interviews or other matters related to the conference.
