About the Book:
Volumes in this series contain lectures, discourses and other teachings of Sufi Master Hazrat Inayat Khan. Great care has been taken to maintain the flow of his mystical inspiration and poetical expression. The present edition profits from recent research having been done in the archives. Already so much is necessarily lost by the transfer of the spoken word to the printed page, that every effort is made, as it should be, to preserve the master's melodious phrasing, the radiance of his personality, and the subtle sense of humour which never left him.
About the Author:
The author, Hazrat Sufi Inayat Khan (Baroda, 1882 - Delhi 1927) was a famous musician in his young years. Later he left for the West in order to spread the Sufi message of love, harmony, and beauty. He preached Sufism not as an orthodox sect, but as a forward-looking world message of interreligious brotherhood. He founded many Sufi centres in the West, where the message is spreading now. At home, in India, the Sufi message has got an inspiring centre at the Dargah of the Master himself, located near the tomb of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia, New Delhi.
