Prayer for the Murshid, adapted from Hazrat Inayat Khan
Inspirer of my mind, consoler of my heart, healer of my spirit, your presence lifts me from earth to heavern. Your words flow like a sacred river, your thoughts rise like a divine spring, your kind feelings awaken sympathy in my heart. Beloved teacher, your very being is forgiveness. The clouds of doubt and fear are scattered by your piercing glance. All ignorance vanishes in your illuminating presence. A hope is born in my heart by breathing your peaceful atmosphere. Inspiring guide through life’s puzzling ways, I feel from you the abundance of baraka.
