    Itself

    Here I am tried to explain my problem by the following sentence:

    "This initiatory path precedes from the Koran,which defines itself as a "guidance"."

    Here 'itself' is directing to the 'This initiatory path'. Am I right?Can you show me the way so that I can easily understand this type of relation from a long,complicated sentence?

    Yes. With complex sentences, you often have to wrestle a bit to get the meaning. There is often no easy way to deal with complex questions.

    "This initiatory path proceeds (?) from the Koran, which defines itself as a "guidance".
    'Itself' refers back to Koran, not to "initiatory path".
