bismillah-circleNew Recommended Book

As salaam alaykum, greetings of peace to you! New recommended book of the month for January 2018  is the new Centennial Edition of Volume II “The Mysticism of Sound” of the Sufi Message of Hazrat Inayat Khan. MUSIC has long been an important part of Sufi culture and practice. Hazrat Inayat Khan’s musical qualifications are well known. Born into the family of the eminent musicologist Mawlabakhsh, he became a professor of music at an early age, and subsequently won laurels throughout the India for his performances as a vocalist and player of the Saraswati vina. The lectures contained in The Mysticism of SoundMusic, The Power of the Word, and Cosmic Language represent the harvest of Hazrat Inayat Khan’s lifelong cultivation of the
transformative power of music and sound—as much, at least, as could be rendered in words. For decades, these fascinating discourses have provided inspiration not only to Sufi practitioners, but also to musicians working in various genres. It is hoped that this new edition will bring Hazrat Inayat Khan’s spiritual philosophy of music to a new generation of divers for pearls in the ocean of the human heart.
