Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan (1916 - 2004) was a teacher of meditation and the best known Sufi master to teach in the West. He described the goal of the spiritual path as “Making God a reality by awakening the God within.” His mission was to spread the teachings which his father, Hazrat Inayat Khan, brought from India, and the timeless contributions of the ancient Sufi mystics to which he incorporated some of the rich mystical traditions of other religious traditions as well as the science and sacred music of the West.
The creative team of the Legacy Project consisted of Espabad Babbs, Karim Updegraff and Mikail Davenport. Our purpose is to honor Pir Vilayat, his life, his teachings, his being.
We also would like to make special mention honoring Mikhail Horowitz, the inspiration and driving force behind the Pir Vilayat Legacy project. Over many decades Mikhail has recorded and collected the vast treasury of Pir Vilayat’s teaching that this site is now presenting to the world. We owe him our deep gratitude for his many years of service to Pir Vilayat and the awakening of humanity to the divinity of mankind.
We are proudly offering selected audio recordings of Pir Vilayat's talks, seminars, and camps from 1974 to his death in 2004 at no charge. We also offer FREE videos of Pir Vilayat. Be aware that some of these topics contain multiple recordings and will therefore be quite large.
It is our hope to add more audio and video material from the archives at Sacred Spirit Music. We will be uploading MP3s/MP4s over the next few months. If you have difficulty, contact us. We pray you garner much from the Legacy of Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan.
