TAJALLI – OR – IRRADIATION
A very important concept and context to
understand in The Sufi Tradition
Is that of Tajalli.
Tajalli is energy which is at first,
given as a loan to the student,
by the Teacher and
which will make the initial efforts of the
student possible and successful.
If the student allows the Teacher to
Loan him or her this energy , the contact
between them is established and can
start to produce positive results in
the efforts of the student.
If the student , because of doubts , fears and or
mental associations and reservations , does not allow the
Teacher to Irradiate the student , then progress will
remain at a stand still.
When the student has had enough
time to experience Tajalli via his or her
Teacher , then a very important and new
experience starts to become possible:
the student now knows where the backup for
his or her progress is coming from,
and if the student continues to make the
correct efforts to progress by using the
Prescribed inner Work that the Teacher has
Given him or her , then, progress
Will become more and more visible to
The Teacher , the student and those who
Observe this relationship.
If on the contrary , the student stops
using the materials and prescriptions given
to him or her , because he or she is now feeling
very well because of the reception of
the Tajalli , then a stop in progress is the result
and also the way in which Tajalli stops coming
into his or her life.
The stopping of the flow of Tajalli is automatic
in the sense that once the student stops
being gratefull and respectfull towards the
Source of this Tajalli,
This very refined energy will be delivered
To others who can use it correctly.
The most important stage of the Tajalli
Relationship between Teacher and student
Will start to emerge when the student
Out of love, gratefullness and respect,
“Overflows” towards his or her Teacher.
One Way Tajalli is for the Beginning
Of the relationship with the Teacher in
The Sufi Tradition.
Two Way Tajalli is what can
Make a real Tarika come into Being.
A Tarika or School of Inner Development
Becomes possible when many students
Of one Teacher have stablished
A Two Way Tajalli relationship with
A Tajalli context comes into being
When there is a live Teacher who
Irradiates energies towards
Students who are interested in self development
And in what he or she has to offer.
