In Greater Kashmir, overcoming nihilism.
The argument of those who are haunted by nihilism may, however, be better met not by invoking personal witness of the things from the “other world” but by arguing that one can read the text of silence that transforms one into an “authentic” being who is open to the revelations of Being. What Heidegger offers by his call for thinking and poetry may be tasted in living the great paradoxes of “Abul Ma’ani” Bedil. And nihilism is overcome by seeing things as they are, by being open to the Call of the Other, by being receptive, by negating the ego that seeks some other meaning than the meaning one discovers when the ego recedes to the background.
