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.

The control of self means the control of everything.

Bowl of Saki, May 28, by Hazrat Inayat Khan


Commentary by Hazrat Inayat Khan

Self-control is the most necessary thing to be learned; a person may have great spirituality, illumination and piety, but in the absence of self-control this is nothing. Self-control also is the way of happiness and peace. ... No thought or feeling should arise without our will. When we have gained mastery over the self, we have mastery over all things. ... Self-control is an attribute which distinguishes man from the animal; both have their appetites and passions, but it is man alone who can control them.

The control of the self means the control of everything. What does it mean when we see a person fail time after time, or another person succeed time after time? It is just a matter of holding the reins of our affairs in our hands. When there is no rein there is failure. Failure means that there has been lack of self-control, whether it is a failure in affairs or in health. Illness always comes when a person has lost the control of the self. It is because this is the main theme of metaphysics that Hatha Yoga has been considered of the greatest value. All the miracles and all the wonders that have ever been known in this world have been done by those who have been able to control themselves by abstinence, and therefore to control life. However much was said upon this subject, it would still not express it. To begin with a person is puzzled by it, and he wonders whether he should believe it or not. That is why in the East the adepts never speak of their experiences in the spiritual life. They only tell their disciples to lead it and practice for years. 'That will make it clear to you', they say.
