The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

I began in my early life a pilgrimage in India - not to holy shrines, but to holy men, going from one place to another and seeing sages of different natures and characters. What I gathered from them all was their great love-nature, their outgoing tendency, their deep sympathy and their inclination to find some good. In every person they see they are looking for some good, and therefore they find it in the most wicked person. By doing so they themselves become goodness because they have gathered it: we become what we gather. In their presence there is nothing but love, compassion and understanding - of which so little is found in this world.
