Pir Vilayat Khan

Pir Vialayt PirsPir Vilayat Inayat Khan (1916-2004), internationally recognized among leaders of all faiths as a master of meditation and spiritual teacher, was trained in the major spiritual traditions. As head of the Sufi Order International, he was the spiritual successor of his father, Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan. His teaching derived from both the rich mystical tradition of the East and the esoteric heritage and scholarship of the West, and from music, science, and psychology.

Pir Vilayat initiated dozens of international gatherings of religious, spiritual, and scientific leaders, and participated in many international and interfaith conferences promoting understanding and world peace. He received the Hollister Prize for creating interfaith understanding in 2004. He wrote many books and left as a legacy a body of mystical teachings as well as the Universel temple in Suresnes, France; the Abode of the Message in upstate New York; and the Hope Project in New Delhi.  http://www.universel.net
