Hazrat Inayat Khan byl indický Súfí.


„Je lehké stát se učitelem, ale je těžké stát se žákem.“

„I have loved in life and I have been loved.
I have drunk the bowl of poison from the hands of love as nectar,
and have been raised above life's joy and sorrow.
My heart, aflame in love, set afire every heart that came in touch with it.
My heart has been rent and joined again;
My heart has been broken and again made whole;
My heart has been wounded and healed again;
A thousand deaths my heart has died, and thanks be to love, it lives yet.
I went through hell and saw there love's raging fire,
and I entered heaven illumined with the light of love.
I wept in love and made all weep with me;
I mourned in love and pierced the hearts of men;
And when my fiery glance fell on the rocks, the rocks burst forth as volcanoes.
The whole world sank in the flood caused by my one tear;
With my deep sigh the earth trembled, and when I cried aloud the name of my beloved,
I shook the throne of God in heaven.
I bowed my head low in humility, and on my knees I begged of love,
"Disclose to me, I pray thee, O love, thy secret."
She took me gently by my arms and lifted me above the earth, and spoke softly in my ear,
"My dear one, thou thyself art love, art lover,
and thyself art the beloved whom thou hast adored.“
The Dance of the Soul


„We grown-up people think that we appreciate music, but if we realized the sense that an infant has brought with it of appreciating sound and rhythm, we would never boast of knowing music. The infant is music itself.“

„There can be no rebirth without a dark night of the soul, a total annihilation of all that you believed in and thought that you were.“ Thinking Like The Universe: The Sufi Path Of Awakening

„Very often in everyday life one sees that by losing one's temper with someone who has already lost his, one does not gain anything but only sets out upon the path of stupidity. He who has enough self-control to stand firm at the moment when the other person is in a temper, wins in the end. It is not he who has spoken a hundred words aloud who has won; it is he who has perhaps spoken only one word.“ Mastery through Accomplishment

„One is never so strong as when one is broken.“ Thinking Like The Universe: The Sufi Path Of Awakening

„There are two aspects of individual harmony: the harmony between body and soul, and the harmony between individuals. All the tragedy in the world, in the individual and in the multitude, comes from lack of harmony. And harmony is the best given by producing harmony in one's own life.“

„Some people look for a beautiful place, others make a place beautiful.“


„The first lesson to learn is to resign oneself to the little difficulties in life, not to hit out at everything one comes up against. If one were able to manage this one would not need to cultivate great power; even one's presence would be healing.“

„God breaks the heart again and again and again until it stays open.“

„The words that enlighten the soul are more precious than jewels.“

„If people but knew their own religion, how tolerant they would become, and how free from any grudge against the religion of others.“ The Bowl of Saki: Thoughts for Daily Contemplation from the Sayings and Teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan


„When we pay attention to nature's music, we find that everything on the Earth contributes to its harmony.“

„Reason is the illusion of reality“

„Moth: I gave you my life.
