Chris and Artie,
I assume from the context the Sufi use of the term 'beloved' is equivalent
to the Zen Buddhist term 'Buddha Nature'.
What are your thoughts? .Bill!

To me "the beloved" is a concept, an idea, and has no meaning at all.
There is no reality in it. In other words I don't "believe in" a "beloved".
