This annual event, commemorating the anniversary of Murshid Inayat's reunion with the Beloved in 1927, is attended by Sufi initiates and devotees from East and West, including all the Sufi orders in his lineage. This year, the event, held at his dargah (shrine) in New Delhi, was hosted by the Ruhaniat with Pir Shabda holding the post. There were numerous concerts of classical Indian vocal and instrumental music, as well as Dances of Universal Peace and teachings by Pir Shabda, other Sufi leaders and, as most honored guests, Pir Zia Inayat Khan and the 12th Tai Situpa Rinpoche.
Outreach in Colombia: Sheika Darvesha writes, "... learn about an outreach project in Colombia that is uplifting, inspiring, and demonstrates how the Dances and Walks can be extended into global communities to affect social change, environmental justice and spiritual living."
