Heart with Wings

Brotherhood and Sisterhood Activity

"There is one human Brotherhood, the Brotherhood and Sisterhood which unites the children of earth indiscriminately in the Fatherhood of God." From The Ten Sufi Thoughts.

If the great Teachers have given a Message to humanity it is no doubt the Message of Brotherhood.

God cannot be found in temples, for God is Love; and love does not live in temples, but in the heart of man, which is the temple of God. The true religion would be to recognize it so and to tolerate, to forgive and to love each other.

Remember my friends that if you studied Sufism and all the problems of metaphysics and philosophy for twenty years, and if that spirit of brotherhood were not developed in you, no progress has been made. Or if you meditated for thirty years in solitude, and if you communicated with God, and yet if the spirit of brotherhood had not developed in you, no progress is made.

Spiritual realization is attained in practical life by observing the ideal of brotherhood. At this time when the world needs the ideal of brotherhood more than ever before in the history of the world, it is our privilege and destiny to do all we can to bring about this ideal in our own lives first, and thus to spread it in the world. Any problem or theory, or doctrine studied, is of no value unless it be practised.

Excerpts from the works of Hazrat Inayat Khan

The Brotherhood/Sisterhood Activity strives to bring together 'East' and 'West' - meaning all apparent contradictions and differences - through greater awareness, lectures, discussion groups and cultural events. This work is completely non-partisan and non-political.

The Activity is represented in various countries by Continental, Regional and Local Representatives, under the co-ordination of the Secretary of the Activity.
