About the Sufis
Shamcher said: “I even once asked Inayat whether we could give up the “Sufi” name on the Message since people misunderstood it for some Muslim sect. He said: “It could happen. But for the time being the name seems right to me, and if we did not put a name on ourselves, others would put a name on us and it might be worse.” More important is that Inayat pushed into my mind worlds of impulses that will take me eons to unravel and use.
There are now many ways to connect with Sufis of a wide variety of schools, lineages and directions. The internet provides easy access worldwide to the Sufi centres, groups and events that are available to seekers in almost every city in North America, Europe – both Eastern and Western, as well as many in South America, Australia, and New Zealand. This doesn’t even include all the Sufi groups and organizations in the traditional cradles of Sufism in the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey and India/Pakistan/South Asia.
Because these resources are so ubiquitous and available through a simple google search, I hesitate to offer any specific links to readers. However, here are a few to help you get started in the tradition of Universal Sufism. Each of these has further links – and all lead Toward the One!
- Rays: Pages in the Life of a Sufi
- The Sufi Circle Canada
- The Inayati Order
- International Sufi Movement
- Sufi Ruhaniat International
- Rising Tide International
- Sufi Message of Inayat Khan
- Sufi Way
Exploring these will reveal the activities of so many sufis connected through Inayat Khan worldwide.
The links to other Sufi approaches are innumerable, this is just a start!
