Lecture by Imam Aga Sultan Muhammad Shah - The Iran Society

Hafiz and the place of Iranian Culture in the World - Lecture by Imam Aga Sultan Muhammd Shah  1936-11-01

I must thank His Excellency the Iranian Minister, Lord Lamington and the members of the Society for having done me the honour of inviting me tonight to bring before you the importance to the whole world of those spiritual forces that the ancient land of Iran has cherished in her modern history. Before I go further I want to define clearly what I mean by "spiritual forces" – I do not use this term in any question-begging sense.
