Group Description

Welcome to the elist of daily meditation themes from the works of Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid 'Inayat Khan, the Sufi mystic and musician who came to the West from India in 1910 with a Universal Message of Love, Harmony and Beauty. These meditations were selected and arranged by Hazrat Pir Vilayat 'Inayat Khan in 1982.

About himself and his teachings, Murshid said, "To serve God, one must sacrifice the dearest thing, and I sacrificed my music, the dearest thing to me. I composed songs; I sang and played the vina. Practicing this music, I arrived at a stage where I touched the music of the spheres. Then every soul became for me a musical note, and all life became music. Inspired by it, I spoke to people, and those who were attracted by my words listened to them instead of listening to my songs.

"Now if I do anything, it is to tune souls instead of instruments; to harmonize people instead of notes. If there is anything in my philosophy, it is the law of harmony: that one must put oneself in harmony with oneself and with others. I have found in every word a certain musical value, a melody in every thought, harmony in every feeling; and I have tried to interpret the same thing with clear and simple words to those who used to listen to my music."
