The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

Man's greatest privilege is to become a suitable instrument of God, and until he knows this he has not realized his true purpose in life. The whole tragedy in the life of man is his ignorance of this fact. From the moment a man realizes this he lives the real life, the life of harmony between God and man. When Jesus Christ said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God", this teaching was an answer to the cry of humanity: some crying, "I have no wealth", others crying, "I have no rest", others crying, "My situation in life is difficult", "My friends are troubling me", or, "I want a position, wealth." The answer to them all is, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you."
