THE INNER LIFE
The Indian Sufi master Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882-1927) was the first teacher to bring Sufism–Islamic mysticism–to the Western world. His teaching was noted for its stirring beauty and power, as well as for its applicability to all people, regardless of religious or philosophical background. This book gathers together three of Inayat Khan’s most beloved essays on the spiritual life from among the fourteen volumes of his collected works:- The Inner Life: Inayat Kahn’s sublime portrait of the person whose life is a radiant reflection of the Divine- Sufi Mysticism: in which the author identifies and shatters the common misconceptions about mysticism to reveal its true meaning- The Path of Initiation and Discipleship: What it means to set out on the spiritual path and how to find and maintain the right relationship with a teacher
