The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

It is the knowledge of self which blooms into the knowledge of God. Self-knowledge answers such problems as:

  • Whence have I come?
  • Did I exist before I became conscious of my present existence?
  • If I existed, as what did I exist? As an individual such as I now am, or as a multitude, or as an insect, bird, animal, spirit, jinn, or angel?
  • What happens at death, the change to which every creature is subject?
  • Why do I tarry here awhile?
  • What purpose have I to accomplish here?
  • What is my duty in life?
  • In what does my happiness consist, and what is it that makes my life miserable?
