Oct 10 Urs of Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh, Oxfordshire, Great Britain, 2008CE

Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh (ra)

Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh, Master of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order, passed away on Friday, October 10th 2008.

Leaving Tehran in 1979, and after traveling widely in the United States, he settled in England in 1986 and never returned to Iran where the Order continues to thrive despite official attempts to deny the spirit of Iranian Sufis. He himself personified the Sufi life, serving humanity in humility and love. In addition to his role as a Sufi master, he was a pioneer in developing and establishing modern psychiatric practice and facilities in his native Iran.
