Abstract: 

The unity of being is one the most important doctrines of mystics that provoked many challenges in area of religious belief and philosophy. Mulla sadra as a founder of philosophical system called transcendental philosophy claims that he has much success in explaining this mystical doctrine. But his followers disagreed over his meaning. Some of them claimed that the theory of equivocal unity of being was the only rational explanation of mystic’s doctrine of unity of being. Other claimed that mystic’s doctrine means the individual unity of being that negates plurality of beings. In this essay, after brief indication of history and development of mystic’s doctrine, different interpretations of Mulla sadra view concerning this doctorine are examined. semantical examination is used to show which interpretation is defensible.
