The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

From the metaphysical point of view there is nothing that can touch the Formless except that art of music which in itself is formless. There is another point of view: that the innermost being of man is the akasha, which means capacity. Therefore all that is directed within from the external world, can reach this realm, and music can reach it still more. A third point of view is that the creation has come from vibrations, which the Hindus have called nada. In the Bible we find it as the word which was first. On this point all the different religions unite. It is therefore that man loves music more than anything else. Music is his nature; it has come from vibrations, and he himself is vibration.
