Insights on the harmony and unity of the ideals of all faiths.
Now more than ever before, the world needs Hazrat Inayat Khan’s thoughtful insights on the essential unity of religious ideals as a path to interfaith understanding. In clear and eloquent language, he identifies the spiritual thread that unifies the messages of the world’s great religious teachers.
Based on original transcripts, this volume attempts to present the teachings in the very words that Hazrat Inayat spoke; it contains most of the material from sermons given at interfaith Universal Worship services between 1924 and 1926, with additional material on the great teachers of humanity.
Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882 1927) came to Europe and America from his native India with a message of love, harmony, and beauty that was a new approach to harmonizing Western and Eastern spirituality. He established a school of spiritual training based upon traditional Sufi teachings infused with the vision of the unity of religious ideals and the awakening of humanity to the divinity within. Inayat Khan died in India in 1927, leaving a significant body of recorded discourse and instruction on all things pertaining to spiritual ideals in the midst of life in the world.
