The objects one should have in taking initiation under the Murshid are:

  • to realize the self within and without;
  • to know and communicate with God, whom alone the world worships;
  • to kindle the fire of divine love, which alone has any value;
  • to be able to read nature's manuscript and to be able to see into the world unseen;
  • to learn how to control oneself;
  • to light the torch of the soul and to kindle the fire of the heart; and
  • to journey through this positive existence and arrive in this life at the goal at which every soul is bound in the end to arrive.
