Lange erwartet, liegt nun eine Zusammenfassung der Sufi-Meditationen von Hazrat Inayat Khan in Buchform vor, zunächst als Ausgabe in englischer Sprache. Die Übersetzung wurde von Talat Kamran besorgt, einem Sufi der Linie von Hazrat Inayat Khan, der seit Jahren das Mannheimer Institut für Integration und interreligiösen Dialog leitet.

Zum Einstieg hier ein Statement von Hazrat Inayat Khan:
"The whole aim of Sufi is, by the thought of God, to cover his imperfect self even from his own eyes; and that moment when God is before him and not his own self, is the moment of perfect bliss to him. My Murshid, Abu Hashim Madani, once said that there is only one virtue and one sin for a soul on this path : virtue when he is conscious of God, and sin when he is not. No explanation can fully describe the truth of this experience of the contemplative, to whom when he is conscious of God, it is as if a window facing heaven were open, and to whom he is conscious of the self the experience is the opposite. For all tragedy of life is caused by being conscious of the self. All pain and depression are caused by this, and anything that can take away the thought of the self helps to a certain extent to relieve man from pain; but God consciousness gives perfect relief."

Bestellt werden kann das Buch zum Preis von 17 Euro per Postkarte, Mail oder Fax bei Talat Kamran, Gewerbstr. 35, 68309 Mannheim, talatkamran@yahoo.de, Tel.: 0173-3024927, Fax.: 0621-105990.

Neues Buch von Hazrat Inayat Khan wurde veröffenlicht :
'Sufi Meditation', Hazrat Inayat Khan, english



Leseprobe zun Buch Sufi Meditation :

Student : Murshid, can you explain, why Sufis have taken

up meditation ?

Hazrat Inayat Khan Sufi :

The whole aim of Sufi is, by the thought of God, to cover

his imperfect self even from his own eyes; and that moment

when God is before him and not his own self, is the moment

of perfect bliss to him. My Murshid, Abu Hashim Madani,

once said that there is only one virtue and one sin for a soul

on this path:virtue when he is conscious of God, and sin when

he is not. No explanation can fully describe the truth of this

experience of the contemplative, to whom when he is

conscious of God, it is as if a window facing heaven were

open, and to whom he is conscious of the self the experience

is the opposite. For all tragedy of life is caused by being

conscious of the self. All pain and depression are caused by

this, and anything that can take away the thought of the self

helps to a certain extent to relieve man from pain; but God

consciousness gives perfect relief. (Vol. VIII, 230-231)

 

Student: During practice, how should I concentrate? Can

you please give an example?

Hazrat:

Passion of will break the concentration. It must have a

certain amount of will. Very often a person with a intense will

power: I will keep that thought, he will break that thought. I

have very often seen people with intense will on their

concentration, and always failing, because they break their

concentration by their intensity of will. There is nothing like

taking all as a play, even meditation or a concentration. Play

it, without being too serious about it. For instance : I imagine

that I shall think of a large pearl. A pearl which cannot be

found in a shop. And I am amusing myself by looking at that

pearl. I do not exhaust my forces, I am playing. I look at that

pearl. I am enjoying looking at it. It is a pleasure to me.

Another person takes that pearl before him. Where shall I get

it ? I want it so much, I would like to have it. He is breaking

that pearl, it is too much. (ibid)

Student: If I repeat Wazifa(Mantra), is it right each time to

concentrate upon the thought ?

Hazrat:

As long as you do not give too much pressure of will. For

instance, you are thinking Wazifa : Fazal. And you are saying

Fazal, then you are saying inward benediction. It is not a

normal condition if a person does a practice and becomes

tired. One must make the practice so light. It is just like

singing, the person who sings and gets tired, he is not doing

it rightly. It must only uplift a person, not get tired. One must

take the simile of the moving picture. In order to make one

scene they have thousand pictures. The rapid following of the

pictures makes one. In order to make the picture correct it

must be rapid, exactly the same with the practices. First of all

we must get accustomed to the meaning of the word. One

must concentrate in the day on the meaning of that word.

One must have that benediction means all that is good and

beutiful, all that gives pleasure and happiness, all that gives

joy and peace, all that is prosperous and flourishing, all that

is outcome of blessing. All foes, strangers, all conditions I

pass through, I receive from all blessing in the form of

happines, joy, peace. Each day five minutes form this idea.

The mind will then be impressed as the essence of the whole

idea and name of it Fazal. And when you are doing the

practice Fazal, at that time you must not think pleasure,

happiness, peace, receiving from friends and foes, but as a

sum total of all things. It means blessing, blessing, blessing.

That must be a kind of essence of the meaning. (Unpublished

lecture, Suresnes Summerschool, Riyazat ,Wednesday,

September 2 nd. 1925)
