The English version of the poetry of Sufi: Hazrat Inayat Khan reflects his deep love for these outpourings of the heart and his affection for his peers on the Path. The English rendering is typcal of the outgoing Victorian age. But even today its devotional nature and blossming description seem to be apt to the rich flowering of the Urdu original.
About the Author(s)
The author, Hazrat Sufi Inayat Khan (Baroda, 1882 - Delhi 1927) was a famous musician in his young years. Later he left for the West in order to spread the Sufi message of love, harmony, and beauty. He preached Sufism not as an orthodox sect, but as a forward-looking world message of interreligious brotherhood. He founded many Sufi centres in the West, where the message is spreading now. At home, in India, the Sufi message has got an inspiring centre at the Dargah of the Master himself, located near the tomb of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia, New Delhi.
