My appeal is in fact to the educational establishments, institutions
and departments of humanities and philosophies to see into
the great work of Professor Jamali
who has done over 30 years of hard work into the root of Iranian
Culture. He has discovered a lot of valuable materials from
this forgotten culture, yet to be learned.
Prof. Jamali’s discovery can have a huge effect in the way
we look at our modern world. There is an amazing variety of
human ideas in the root of Iranian culture, in exploring Love,
kindness and unity in a society. It is a unique way of understanding
non-material world of humanity. It is a philosophy showing
kindness and love that has led Rumi
into publication of such amazing poems that is still very
lively after 700 years.
Prof. Jamali has used Iranian literature, local traditions,
and local customs, national and local vocabularies in his
research. He managed to publish a huge amount articles and
over 100 books in Farsi,
showing the root of Iranian culture.
I whole heartedly believe that, there is a need to translate
at least some of his publications into English for mankind;
it can have a huge impact into the way we look at our world.
I am hoping for a spark, in exploring and understanding the
mankind in the root of Iranian culture, a forgotten culture.
This research can lead into real understanding of Khayam,
Rumi, Hafez, Ferdosi and many other Iranian thinkers.
Professor Jamali’s work is not about purities into mankind,
it is about diversity, the diversity that he managed to find
in the root of Iranian culture. It is amazing to see so much
diversity in our ancestor’s thoughts. This is not unique to
the roots of Iranian culture, it can be found in many other
cultures too. He proves that our ancestors were not bugged
down to an idea or a religion, this finding is quit amazing
and opposite of our knowing about the past.
Professor Jamali’s work shows that our ancestors can give
us plenty thoughts in order to come up with a new vision and
new ideas for understanding the humanity and the structure
of a social life in our modern world. It can lead us in a
better understanding of human complexity and behaviour.
Human is far from being a machine and you can’t change a society
by changing its bolts and nuts; a society must understand
its roots and grow-up from the roots. Understanding this basic
fact can give us visions to overcome the problems that we
are facing up with. There is no quick fix to our social problems;
a democratic idea can’t be achieved by a simple injection
and you can’t have a democratic society without democratic
Let’s give a chance to a new thinking and new idea to cherish
our world, to cherish mankind for a better world. We don’t
have to have a troublesome world, there has to be a solution
for it, and we just have to come up with new practical and
moral ideas. The world needs new ideas to overcome a lot of
social problems in our world. There has never been such a
need for a new vision in our turbulence world of today.
I am hoping the readers can help me in this appeal. If you

There is a huge amount of articles, books and
literatures from professor Jamali
that can change, for the better, the way we look at our world.
All of his publications are in Persian (Farsi). I translate
his work as much as I can and publish them here. However,
such work demands a team work, dedication and of course finance.
I hope one day we get that necessary finance to publish these
great works for mankind. Our world is starving for
such great vision.
Jamali’s work is absolutely amazing; it is about Simorgh
or Sanam. It is about life. It is about human dignity (Arj,
Arjmand). It is about soul, rhythm, music, happiness, freedom,
self confidence and dreams. It is about the qualities that builds
and cherish a society. It is about unity. It is about the materials
that create confidence and love between mankind, regardless
of any faith or nationality. It is amazing when we see the roots
of these values dates back to over 7 thousand years. Professor
Jamali has discovered these in the root of Iranian Culture
using Persian literatures, vocabulary and a method called Iconology.
He basically proves that, these values can be found in any known
culture, we just need to dig for it. I think we need to be able
to ask, ourselves, these basic questions:
- What has happed to our world?
- With all these technology, why our world is so
much apart ?
- Why are we still struggling on these basic human
values, after all these years?
- Where are we heading to?
