“The mystery of eternal life is past once we have eaten death; then we are eternal.” – Hazrat Inayat Khan
Death and Deathlessness
A Retreat With Taj Inayat
“Death is a death
so long as we are unacquainted with it.
When we eat it up,
then we have eaten death and
death cannot eat us.”
– Hazrat Inayat Khan
This retreat experientially explores the soul’s journey as presented by Hazrat Inayat Khan’s masterpiece The Soul Whence and Whither which figures as a modern-day Sufi counterpart to the Egyptian and Tibetan Books of the Dead.
What is called death, according to Hazrat, is a state of consciousness devoid of physical sensory input. Familiarizing oneself with the experience of consciousness beyond the senses can accordingly lead to the direct realization of immortality, a discovery that dispels the conventional dichotomy between life and death.
“Death, who do you caress?
The one who lies trustfully in my arms.”
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Endorsement from Pir Zia Inayat Khan
“Death is both the common fate of us all, and the most perplexing of mysteries. Philosophers and theologians have theories about life after death, but the surest knowledge comes from those whose meditations have taken them deep into worlds beyond the physical realm. My mother Taj is such a teacher, and her guidance in meditation is a rare and wonderful thing, a key to what lies beyond.” — Pir Zia
