The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

The Sufi does not prescribe principles for anybody, but this is not as in ordinary life, where to have no principles means to be a very wicked person. Some wonder how Sufism can be followed if it has no principles. But the answer is that what is good for one may be very bad for another. For one it may be very good to be a nun or to sit all day in a church or in a mosque, but for another it may be very bad; and yet another may need to go to the cafes and restaurants and learn the meaning of the experiences gained there.
