"A powerful book of mystical insight for people of all traditions."—Monos
"Inayat Khan says that music is the 'picture of our Beloved' and then draws the picture stroke by stroke from every angle and plane until we see it. He is the only holy man I know who delivers an authentic and inclusive spiritual message from a musical sensibility. He does this rigorously, poetically and spontaneously, until we perceive our own actions as music. Open to any line on any page: you will be opened."—W. A. Mathieu, author of The Listening Book and The Musical Life
"Inayat Khan brought one of the strongest and sweetest lineages from India to the West: the music and open heart of Sufism as it blends with Persian poetry and Western intellect. He is a source and a great joy."—Coleman Barks, author of Open Secret and The Essential Rumi
From the Back Cover
Music, according to Sufi teaching, is really a small expression of the overwhelming and perfect harmony of the whole universe - and that is the secret of its amazing power to move us. The Indian Sufi master Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882-1927), the first teacher to bring the Islamic mystical tradition to the West was an accomplished musician himself. His lucid exposition of music's divine nature has become a modern classic, beloved not only by those interested in Sufism but by musicians of all kinds.

I will finish the book and update the review; I was ‘referred’ more do guided to this book from Maryam Hasnaa - New Earth School, and this is my first introduction to Sufism.
Very simple and clear writing.
I am not a sufi follower, but the teachings of HIK definitively touched my heart deeply.
This man was a real mystic human being beside his background (just my feeling)
A real surprise will be waiting for youd in his writings
I do recommend this book specially to improve our view of the modern way of life ( internet, social networks, videos, lots of working hours... etc)
