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

From the Back Cover:

The joy of this discovery of God everywhere and in all things infuses the writings of Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882-1927), the Indian teacher who first brought Sufism - Islam's mystical tradition - to the Western world. Though Sufism's popularity has continued to grow in the time since he lived and taught, and many other wonderful teachers have come and gone, Inayat Khan's special ability to convey the essence of the Sufi path remains unsurpassed. This book contains three of Inayat Khan's essays, taken from among his voluminous collected works: "The Inner Life", "Sufi Mysticism", and "The Path of Initiation and Discipleship". It also includes a previously unpublished essay, "The Path of the Mystic", and selected aphorisms.

About the Author:

Hazrat Inayat Khan was trained as a musician and a Sufi of the Chishti order and gave concert tours of Indian classical music in the United States and Europe.
