The Call of the Dervish
Breakthrough in Spiritual Realization
by Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan
A bold exploration into the meaning and purpose of spirituality in the contemporary world. Fifteen of Pir Vilayat’s lectures are offered here, on topics including the search for meaning, new dimensions of consciousness, transformation, sacredness of life, and discovering the order behind the universe.
“The real breakthrough of joy only happens when we are moved to the core of our being—when we are shattered by our encounter with meaningfulness.”
