From the Publisher:

This enlightening address, given at the American University of Paris in April 1995, notes that the traditions which claim to be able to save the human race have not eliminated crime or war, and are flawed if they do not achieve beneficial, tangible results in everyday life. In simple yet elegant prose, Hazrat Pir explains the Sufi way of moving beyond knowledge gained through the senses to the knowledge achieved in union with the Source of Life-- God. It is only through the spiritual dimension, through the Divine, that true knowledge can prevail, conquering the challenges that face the modern world.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The following paragraphs are taken from page 11 and 12.

When we observe the universe, we see how peaceful it is, how tranquil it is. The reason is knowledge, the reason is stability. The universe is all knowledge. If it is possible to have stability and tranquillity in the vast universe which expands from nowhere to nowhere, with no beginning and no end, then we should see the same tranquillity and stability in the smaller units --from the atom to human societies --since they are part of the universe.

Can we agree that where knowledge and wisdom exist, ignorance, abuse and hatred cannot exist?...

In the teachings of Sufism, the human being is considered as the perfect image of the universe --the macrocosm and the microcosm --from the physical, magnetic, and metaphysical, to the very depths of the black hole, that is, if we can use this image of existence.

Whatever exists in this universe also exists in the human being. Amir al-Mo'menin Ali (peace be upon him) said over 1,400 years ago:

Do you ponder that you are a microcosm?
Contained within you is the macrocosm,
And you are the Clear Book whose words
manifest the inner.
