This collection of aphorisms is just a gem of wisdom and mysticism with a touch of humour. It helps you to discover your very being at the same time as hinting practical solutions for your daily life: feeling, thinking, speaking, acting. It is the only book Hazrat Inayat Khan actually wrote himself. All the others (vide The Sufi Message, Vols. I-XIII) are representations of his discourses. Besides aphorisms it contains a small yet highly inspiring collection of prayers. Throughout the book you will find poems which are truly spiritual.
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.
