The Knighthood of Purity
“Since the time of the prophets, mysticism and chivalry have gone hand-in-hand. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that Hazrat Inayat Khan was also a master of spiritual chivalry, or futuwwa. His teachings on the chivalric virtues are thoroughly expounded in the volumes Character Building and the Art of Personality and Moral Culture. In 1926, before returning to India, Hazrat created four Knights of Purity and eight Heralds of the Message. Thus he planted the seed of the Knighthood of Purity.”
For followers of the path of Universal Sufism forged by Hazrat Inayat Khan, or for anyone with an interest in an ancient and yet modern code of ethics, there is much here for consideration, contemplation and practice.
