of the Message:
Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan
Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, a spiritual leader in the Sufi Order, was born in London
over eighty years ago. He studied philosophy, psychology, and music
at Paris University and at Oxford University in England. He then began an intensive
spiritual practice with Sufi masters before accepting a leadership role
within the Sufi Order.
In Awakening: A Sufi Perspective (review or buy), Pir Vilayat explores the foundation of Sufism. In his clear, accessible work, Pir Vilayat points toward a new form of consciousness, in which our way of seeing the world around us expands in concentric circles until we are looking through the eyes of the cosmos--or the eyes of God.
