The School of Love

Friday, November 6, 2009, 7:30 p.m.

The essence of Sufism is the creed of the heart, or the "School of Love" ( mazhab-i 'ishq).  The cornerstone of this school is the insight that the Universe is a phenomenon of love, the ripest fruit of which is the human heart.  In this talk, Pir Zia Inayat-Khan will explore the individual and collective implications of the spiritual cultivation of the heart.Pir Zia Inayat-Khan
