Organization Sufi Order International
History Indian spiritual leader Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882-1927), the mystical philosopher and musician who gave definitive modern expression to the timeless and universal wisdom of Sufism.
City Columbia County, New York
Values Teachers in the Sufi Order International are held to high ethical standards in their role as spiritual guides, and a signed copy of each guide's agreement of adherence to these ethical stipulations is on file with the Secretariat, as well as their agreement with these standards being implicit in accepting the role of spiritual guide.
Vision To realize and spread the knowledge of unity, the religion of love and wisdom, so that the bias of faith and beliefs may of itself fall away, the human heart may overflow with love and all hatred caused by distinctions and differences may be rooted out. To discover the light and power latent within all human beings, that is the secret of all religion, the power of mysticism, and the essence of philosophy, without interfering with customs or belief.
Mission SOI four-part mission consists of (1) spreading the Message of Unity and awakening humankind to the divinity in all as taught by three generations of the Hazrat Inayat Khan Sufi lineage, (2) providing a program of transformative spiritual training, (3) supporting new ways of incorporating the ideals of love, harmony and beauty into all aspects of everyday life and (4) offering services and creating projects that relieve human suffering.
Goals To help to bring the worlds two opposite poles, East and West, closer together by the interchange of thought and ideals, that the Universal Kinship may form of itself, and human being may see with human being beyond the narrow national and racial boundaries.
Approach To achieve its goal SOI offers seminars, conferences, retreats, Universal Worship services, print-based and electronic publications. Its programs are presented by spiritual guides capable of giving authentic training in the inner life and the integration of spiritual realisation into everyday life.
