This is the seventh volume of the Indian edition of all the works of Hazrat Inayat Khan, the great Sufi mystic who lectured and taught in the western world. This book and other volumes in this series contain his lectures, discourses and other teachings as taken down in shorthand.

The complete series contains fourteen volumes. Each volume is complete in itself, and therefore may be read without any necessity to study following or previous ones. However, one may get a spiritual and mental appetite to continue reading . One will find that a meditative way of reading will convey not only the words but also the spiritual power emanating from them, tuning mind, heart and soul to the pitch which is one's own.

This book aims at awakening and developing this heart quality, and preparing the reader to be able to face the world’s hardships, yet fostering a sympathizing warmth for our fellow-men. It covers a marvelous variety of subjects which turn out to be strongly interrelated. In a smooth and unassuming manner the author creates an integrated view of life within and without. He has created a beautiful system of thought and feeling without running into the risks of straightforwardness, simplicity and rigor. Yet his views tend to strike you for their very simplicity, inspired and inspiring as they are.

“How the words ‘love’, ‘harmony’, and ‘beauty’ delight the heart of everyone who hears them” is the opening sentence of this volume. The author, Hazrat Sufi Inayat Khan, has labeled his message as the Sufi message of love, Harmony and Beauty, because in the present world these qualities seem to be underrated if not neglected altogether. Moreover, spirituality cannot exist without these. The first prerequisite, however, even to experience the delight he mentions above, is an open heart.
