The Dargah of Hazrat Sufi Inayat Khan


Dargah Sufi Inayat KhanSufism

One of the words to which the term 'Sufi' is related is the Greek Sophia, meaning wisdom; wisdom is the knowledge acquired from within and without.

Therefore Sufism is not only an intuitive knowledge nor is it only a knowledge acquired from the outer life of the world. Sufism in itself is not a religion nor even a cult with a distinct or definite doctrine. No better explanation of Sufism can be given than by saying that any person who has knowledge of both outer and inner life is a Sufi. Thus there has never in any period of the world's history been a founder of Sufism, yet Sufism has existed at all times.

The life of Inayat Khan was dedicated to bringing the universal Sufi message of love, harmony and beauty to the western hemisphere. The movement that Inayat Khan founded is not related to any specific culture or religion and aims at all those who wish to deepen their insight into life. Inayat Khan wanted people to understand that there is only one truth, one source from which all religions and beliefs spring. This Dargah reflects the open and tolerant atmosphere of the Sufi message and has become a meeting place for many people.
