INAYAT’S SONG: What would it be like to remain a voice and not an echo?

Experience the interplay of story and music in the First Episode of The Six Part Audio Special Inayat’s Song.

“the Sufi produces his ideal vision in his imagination, by the help of music. In the Qawwali the nature of love, lover, and beloved is expressed. In this the poetry of the Sufi excels the love poems known to the world, for in it is revealed the secret of love, lover and beloved, the three in one. Apart from the philosophy of the whole being, one can see the delicacy and complexity of their poems, rich with conventions and adorned with metaphor. Hafiz, Rumi, Jami, and many others among the Sufi poets have expressed the secret of the inner and outer being in the terminology of love. The Qawwals, the singers, sing these verses distinctly, so that every word may become clear to the hearers, that the music may not hide the poetry; and the tabla players who accompany the singers emphasize the accents and keep the rhythm even, so that the being of the Sufi, already set to music, joins with the rhythm and harmony of the music. On these occasions the condition of the Sufi becomes different. His emotional nature at this time has its full play” — Inayat Khan.

Fund Raising Key to Completion of the Feature Movie: My Heart’s Song

The editor and co-director Julie R Rackow and I are continuing to refine the Motion Picture and now working to streamline the third and final act. Each day brings new revelations in this creative process. And we are also shifting to the distribution of the feature with the help of Sharecropper Entertainment, the brainchild of Omar Kaczmarczyk and Hicks, a veteran of media placement in the entertainment industry.

The vehicle is The non-profit Sophia Unity Foundation whose purpose is to spread the Message of Unity and Spiritual Liberty worldwide. All contributions are tax deductible for U.S. Federal income tax purposes. We aim to sound the keynote that will tune all people to the level the world needs to overcome the avarice and greed that is plunging our earth into darkness.  We aim to shed light where there is now darkness.

Toward the One,

The Perfection of Love, Harmony, and Beauty,

The Only Being, United with all the illuminated Souls

who form the embodiment of the Master, the Spirit of Guidance.

Video Clip of My Heart’s Song

 

It has been a rewarding three and a half year process of researching, writing and rewriting, travel through India for four months on the trail of Inayat’s youth. Return to India for more HD video, and collecting images from libraries and the family of Inayat khan, then to Paris for the archives and the wonderful help of the archivist Anne-Louis Wirgman. And months of editing with Julie Rackow in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

We need your help

My time has been a wonderful gift to myself and the Message of Inayat Khan so needed in the world today. But some things cost money, and these finall stages need about $1,000 for polishing the product so that it is worthy of the subject, an astounding Sufi master.

Please help finish this project. Reserve an advance copy for $15 and donate whatever you can (IRS tax deductible 501(c)3 Sophia Unity Foundation, a charitable institution whose purpose it is to bring the Message of Inayat Khan to a world way out of balance.

Sincerely yours,
