Bowl of Saki - May 16


The poverty of one who has renounced is real riches compared with the riches of one who holds them fast.
— Bowl of Saki, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

Hazrat Inayat Khan

Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan

From the Gayan


Incense, what did you preach at the church?
–He who endureth pain in the cause of others must rise from the mortal world to the spheres of immortality.
Incense, what does your perfume signify?
–My perfume is the evidence of my self-sacrifice.
Incense, tell me what mortal is veiled in your nature?
–When my heart endures the test of fire, my hidden quality becomes manifest.
Incense, tell me the secret of your being.
–I am the heart of the lover of God, whose deep sign rises upward, spreading its perfume all around.
