About the Author:
Hazrat Inayat Khan was a Sufi teacher from India who started "The Sufi Order in the West" (now called the Sufi Order International) in the early part of the 20th century.

Inayat was born into a family of musicians in 1882. His
grandfather was a well-known musician respected as a composer, performer, and
developer of a musical annotation which combined a group of diverse musical
languages into one simplified integrated notation.
