The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

Krishna is the innermost spirit whose life rises and dances through the artist. The different minds are represented by the gopis, the girls, and Krishna is the source of life within the individual. The different minds are considered as gopis, because the mind must already have its own beauty to be able to reflect that greater beauty. For instance, if a man had no idea of language and his soul began to dance, no gopi would be there, no possibility for poetry to flower from him, as his mind was not prepared.
