It is not necessary to change the notes of the piano.
What is necessary is to know the way of harmony,
to know how to create harmony between the different notes.
(Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan)

Fraternity of Light

Toward the Perfection of Love, Harmony and Beauty

The Fraternity of Light was founded in 1977 as a non-profit non-denominational organization within the Sufi tradition of Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan. Its central viewpoint is:

There is no reality but God
and all live, move, and have their being within
that One reality.
God exists within the heart of every human being
and can be found there by knowing how to look within.

— Dr. Christopher Clarke, Ph.D.
