The Indian Sufi master Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882–1927) was the first teacher to bring Sufism—Islamic mysticism—to the Western world. His teaching was noted for its stirring beauty and power, as well as for its applicability to all people, regardless of religious or philosophical background. This book gathers together three of Inayat Khan's most beloved essays on the spiritual life from among the fourteen volumes of his collected works:

   • "The Inner Life": Inayat Kahn's sublime portrait of the person whose life is a radiant reflection of the Divine

   • "Sufi Mysticism": in which the author identifies and shatters the common misconceptions about mysticism to reveal its true meaning

   • "The Path of Initiation and Discipleship": What it means to set out on the spiritual path and how to find and maintain the right relationship with a teacher


"Few writers have been as important to the understanding of Islamic mysticism as Hazrat Inayat Khan . . . These writings are an eloquent introduction to a spiritual path that encourages seekers to discover their inner spirituality amidst the business of everyday life."—Publishers Weekly

"Inayat Khan is masterful, patient, and exacting in teaching the way of 'getting to the center of life."—Yoga Journal

"Inayat Khan brought one of the strongest and sweetest lineages from India to the West: the music and open heart of Sufism as it blends with Persian poetry and Western intellect. He is a source and a great joy."—Coleman Barks, author of Open Secret and The Essential Rumi
