Hundreds of Sufis from all over the world attended this annual event in New Delhi, led this year by Pir Shabda, murshids and mureeds of the Ruhaniat. Read two brief reminiscences by Murshid Abraham.
'GOD IS BREATH' online series starting in March 2014:
Join an e-sangha, participate from anywhere !
Murshid Wali Ali and esoteric secretary Tawwaba Bloch are offering an opportunity to participate online in the 11 month God is Breath class series and join a 'virtual sangha', working with a small group to discuss and digest the rich material Wali Ali offers. Learn and experience basic to advanced Sufi practices! The archived video recordings and associated materials from the 2013 series will be used along with mentored online live meetings. Details and descriptions are here.
Remembering Murshid Samuel L. Lewis, Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti
On January 15th we again celebrated the day when this great teacher, peacemaker and guide, the founder of the Ruhaniat and creator of the Dances of Universal Peace, left the earth plane to be reunited with the Beloved in 1971. There were joyous commemorations in many parts of the world as thousands of Sam's spiritual children gathered to once again experience his energy, his being.
You can hear brief, memorable excerpts of Murshid SAM's unique teachings online: we call them Murshid SAM Gems.
Some recent videos on our Youtube channel capture some recollections of being with Murshid SAM:
- Wali Ali Interview at Lama Recalling Murshid Samuel Lewis
- Murshida Vera Corda on Murshid SAM, Lama Foundation and more
- Meeting Sam: Lama Tsering and Murshid Wali Ali Meyer
Ruhaniat events for 2014 are appearing on our Calendar, and we note that for January and February, our opportunities for spiritual enrichment tend to be in some of the friendlier climates, such as California, New Orleans, Mexico and India! There are also youth-directed Sufi Youth retreats, including the first-ever Sufi Youth Jam in Colorado for April! Visit our calendar and see if anything appeals to you. Note that in February 2014 the Ruhaniat will host the Urs Celebration of Hazrat Inayat Khan in India.
