The Inayatiyya - A Sufi Path of Spiritual Liberty
The work of the Inayatiyya is founded upon the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan and his successors Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan and Pir Zia Inayat-Khan. Hazrat Inayat Khan brought the spiritual heritage of Sufism from India to the Western nations of Europe and the Americas, adapting it to the conditions of those cultures. His successors have continued to adapt the presentation of Sufism to ever-changing modern conditions, while strongly holding the connection to the living essence that they represent. It is not just a philosophy, but a practice of working with the self to realize all the dimensions of one's being, come to a fuller understanding and joy, and to communicate that in everyday life.
"Thus the ultimate purpose for which the soul is seeking every moment of our life, is our spiritual purpose. And you may ask how to attain to that purpose. The answer is that what you are seeking for is within yourself. Instead of looking outside, you must look within. The way to proceed to accomplish this is for some moments to suspend all your senses such as sight, hearing, smell, touch, in order to put a screen before the outside life; and by concentration and by developing that meditative quality you will sooner or later get in touch with the inner self which is more communicative, which speaks more loudly than all the noises of this world; and this gives joy, creates peace, and produces in you a self-sufficient spirit, a spirit of independence, of true liberty."
-- Hazrat Inayat Khan
