The Sayings of Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan
by Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan
Pir Vilayat’s retreat process was modeled on the ancient alchemical process of transmuting lead into gold, but here it is the human heart, which, purified of its dross, reflects the divine luminosity. Often a few words, a single idea, can prove the catalyst which moves this process from one stage to the next.The uses of the Alchemical Wisdom sayings are as wide as one’s imagination. Use them as daily meditations, as reflections of your soul’s purpose, as guidance in a situation.
“Following my father’s [Hazrat Inayat Khan] message, I believe that to develop our being to its highest potential we need to discover our ideal and allow an inborn strength, a conviction in ourselves, to give us the courage toward developing this ideal. My deepest goal is to instill in those with whom I come into contact, a respect and tolerance for each world religion, recognizing the unity of ideals behind the diversity of forms. I believe in rising above distinctions and differences to appreciate the beauty and variety in people and cultures, and to uphold at all costs the dignity of every human being.” Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan

Read excerpts from Alchemical Wisdom:
“Though you may not change it, you can handle an ugly situation beautifully.
You can’t know the defects of a person without having them yourself.
The ultimate meditation is “Who am I?”
The magnificence of the Universe is in you.
Science deals with predictables;
creativity deals with unpredictables.
The only way to hear the voice of glory is to sing it ourselves.”
