Dargah of Samuel Lewis
in New Mexico

Sufi Circle

Wed. Sept 20 at Tee Lee's in Gainesville 7pm 
RSVP  for directions. 

Topic: how a Sufi Saint can still have influence after death, specifically, Murshid Samuel Lewis.  The recent retreat at his gravesite (maqbara) dedicated the new Sufi dargah (shrine building) at Lama Mountain in New Mexico. 

 Along with the usual practices, prayers, wazifa, dance, zikr, poetry, & readings, Nancy & DiAnahita will report on the Lama events, with photographs in an electronic frame

"Actually, although we seem to be in a world of song & dance, 
we are most concerned with peace on earth."
Murshid Samuel Lewis
Skylight in SAM's dargah
Dargah Blessing Retreat at Lama
in NM. About 200 people attended.
Let all associate, therefore,
in this great human garden
Even as flowers grow
& blend together side by side.

Love ye all religions
And all races with a
love that is true - true & sincere
& show that love through deeds
& show that love.

Dargah of Hazrat Inayat Khan
in New Delhi, India
Through the ages, different religions have been given to man for spiritual development with the sole idea of unity.
