A World Message

In the sufi traditions in the East we find many teachers who insist on a “cadaver discipline” which may have its points — in the East. Some of those who assumed leadership after Inayat Khan followed these eastern murshids in their attitudes and demands. Inayat Khan had been taught by his own teacher Sayed Madani to present the message in the west in exactly the way he did, a message from and for the world, not a repetition of the old sufi traditions as such. Other people were even appointed leaders of the old Chisti order. This was after that no longer Inayat Khan’s order. His was a world message.
