The essay describes the Sufi ideas of God, nature, truth, and love, among others, as well as a beginners guide to Sufism. This work is ideal for anyone interested in world religions, learning about Sufi beliefs, or studying the spread of Sufism in the 20th century.
HAZRAT INAYAT KHAN (1882-1927) was a Sufi teacher and writer who founded the "Sufi Order in the West" in London in 1914. Born into a Muslim-Indian noble family, he was initiated into several Sufi orders before leaving India in 1910 as a traveling musician at the encouragement of his sheik. Once arriving in the West, Khan turned from music to spreading Sufi thought and practice throughout three continents. He returned to India in 1926 to choose a site for his burial. Today, he is remembered for his call to man to awake to "Truth of Divine Guidance and Love," which is resonant in his many works on Universal Sufism.
