Bowl of Saki  -  Free Daily Email Subscription


What is it??

The Bowl of Saki is a daily non-sectarian inspirational message from Inayat Khan, an awe-inspiring spiritual leader from India who brought a timeless message of Love, Harmony and Beauty to the Western world in the early 1900's, a message which helps us to become more acutely aware of the precious spark of divinity within ourselves and within all of creation.

These messages are not about any new religion, they are simply reminders of the same glorious ideals which have been offered to us through the great prophets and teachers of all eras.

What will it look like??

Your daily email will look something like this:

Success comes when reason, the store of experience, surrenders to will.

Bowl of Saki, January 23, by Hazrat Inayat Khan


Commentary by Hazrat Inayat Khan

A learned person without will power is like a head without a body.

   from  https://wahiduddin.net/mv2/say/gayan_boulas.htm


Common sense is necessary in the path of attainment, but not to such an extent that the reason should dominate and lead the will. The will, in action, must lead the reason, whereas if the reason is allowed to lead the will, the will many times becomes paralyzed. But when in cooperation the will leads the reason, then the path of attainment becomes illuminated.

   ~~~ "Githa I, Sadhana 5", by Hazrat Inayat Khan (unpublished)


Reason is learned from the ever changing world, but wisdom comes from the essence of life.

   from  https://wahiduddin.net/mv2/say/gayan_boulas.htm


Reason is the master of the unbeliever and the servant of the believer.

   from  https://wahiduddin.net/mv2/say/gayan_chalas.htm


In order to see this question more clearly one must picture oneself as two beings, one the king and the other the servant. When one of them expresses a wish, it is the king who wishes. And the part that says, 'I cannot,' is the servant. If the servant has his way, then the king is in the place of the servant. And the more the servant has his way, the more the servant rules and the king obeys. In this way naturally conflict arises and that reflects upon the outer life. One's whole life becomes unlucky. One may be pious or good or religious, it makes no difference. If man does not realize the kingdom of God within himself nor realize his spirit to be a king, he does not accomplish the purpose of life.
